I wonder if anyone ever used one of them as a giant CAD plotter?

Anyone remember KAREL on the Apple ][?  My high school used it as an
example in the most basic of programming skills.  Not that I ever saw
anyone other than the teacher actually use it.  Students were
just /told/ about it.

If you're even older, you can do octal to decimal, and vice versa.  For
extra brownie points, you know EBCDIC in your head.  ;-)
