Jump to user comments
A recipe for inducing hardware damage on a machine via
insertion of invalid values (see poke) into a
memory-mapped control register; used especially of various
fairly well-known tricks on bitty boxes without hardware
memory management (such as the IBM PC and Commodore PET)
that can overload analog electronics in the monitor.
