  1. 10 POKE 36879,237
    20 FOR I = 1 TO 10 STEP 2
    30 PRINT “I LOVE MY COMMODORE VIC-20″
    40 GET A$: IF A$=”” THEN 40
    50 IF A$=”X” THEN STOP
    60 NEXT

  3. The poke changes the background colour to a lovely shade of light blue with a green border! (I think – well, either that or it screws up something else in memory)
