Retro Computing by Numbers

W00t! We hit double figures!

That's 10 people! 10. Not only the number '2' in binary (base 2), but the function key labelled as 'BREAK' on the Acorn BBC Micro which did a soft reset.

At school, we would re-program the break key to recover the previous program in memory, and re-run it. Like this:

*key10 OLD||M RUN||M

What did you do with the break key?
