The search for a new programmer begins.

Ah, the memories this brings back... Drake can remember programming in LOGO as a wee child, drawing cars, battle tanks, and other fun things on his beloved Apple IIe.

Actually, LOGO was developed by education visionary Seymour Papert not solely as a drawing tool, but as a simple language for introducing children to computer programming; in that sense it succeeded admirably. In addition, this LISP-based language is more sophisticated than Hackles realizes, having been used in a number of artificial intelligence and language processing projects.
