I wonder why they were using that on "The Computer Programme"?

I was showing some extracts to my pupils who were laughing their socks off,
but they were really into both the blue lines and the Bubble-Sort demo:

When one of the boys said he wanted a hairstyle like Chris Serle I knew I was in trouble :mrgreen:

It looks a bit fuzzy on a whopping great flat-screen; but looks just fine on
an old cathode-ray VDU:

One of my sons still has a hairdo like Chris Serle's. Why would you be in trouble then?

Now, if he had said he wanted one like Mac's I could understand. :D

Or:
CTRL-S 0 4 0 0 0
(CTRL-S is the same as VDU19 works in MODE 3 or 6 as hoglet said)

Mind you, his hairstyle might have gone bouffant because of this:

If you either don't want to risk the legal ramifications of using "whacky-baccy"
or you are not on speaking terms with your "friendly" neighbourhood drug-pusher
I would recommend getting into the flashing colours in Mode 6: probably
a lot better for your lungs and heart as well :shock:
