Buddha's Boggler Tape 7 Includes the original and a modified version by Klaus Doerge.
Calendar Tape 3, Program 5  
Checkbook Balancer & Compound Interest Possibly Tape 6 August 1979. This program uses the on-board calculator routines that were dropped from AstroBASIC, so this program will only work in the original Bally BASIC.
- Comments by Paul Thacker: "The actual calculations seem reasonably fast considering the hardware. However, the interface leaves much to be desired. There aren't a lot of options, and more instructions would have been nice. I'd say these had limited use even whey they were released, and even less now."
