   I know I sure would! Disabling CTRL-BRK is a breeze, but the ominous

   Here's how I do CTRL-BRK, just in case anyone's interested...

   DIM OldBrk%(4)
   DEF SEG = 0
    FOR B = &H6C TO &H6F
     OldBrk%(I-&H6C) = PEEK (B)
   POKE &H6C, &H53
   POKE &H6D, &HFF
   POKE &H6E, &H0
   POKE &H6F, &HF0
   ' to restore
   DEF SEG = 0
    FOR B = &H6C TO &H6F
     POKE B, OldBrk%(I-&H6C)
    NEXT B
