I still remember the poke code for that on the Vic 20:

Poke 9926, 256

I think thats for two player, can't remember the single player poke.

Internal Mail in Govenment departments

I worked (as an IT contractor) at a large military headquarters just outside Watford about ten years ago (no place names, just think Yes Prime Minister..... season 1 episode 1...) where internal mail took seven WORKING days to travel the epic journey from one office to another. Mail frequently went missing.

However classified docs (iirc) were not sent via the internal mail!
