Here is an interesting thing I picked up in one of these
magazines in this stack over here this month:

First run this.....

Print TIME$
For x = 1 to 10
        For y = 1 to 10000
                a = y
        Next y
Print x
Next x
Print TIME$

now add DEFINT A-Z to the top of the code and run again.

I knew to use integers whenever possible but I had no idea
the difference was this astounding!
