Indeed many of the type-ins might not have any practical application but I guess they could be helpful to someone learning BASIC?

Let's not forget the "aaaawww" moment, when this worked and you could show your parents some magic (so they didn't think it was a total waste of money).

Seriously, these kind of "useless" things were the reason I wanted the CPC.
