Honest Harry, Millionaire

I was talking to my brother earlier today about a computer game we used to play back in the 1980s on the ZX Spectrum called 'Millionaire'.

'Millionaire' was an early management game. The idea was to create computer games and sell them to make a million pounds - hence the name. This involved writing new games, converting games to other platforms, duplicating cassettes, investing in copy protection, marketing, etc., etc.

Anyhoo, one of the things you could do in the game was to go and see a character called 'Honest Harry' who would sell you stuff like blank cassettes (obviously stolen) at low prices.

Does this remind you of anyone at all?
