  In the middle of the new roms on the coco 3 there is some very strange
code. The most interesting example of this is part of the old roms that
got left behind. There was a command on the coco2 called DLOAD which
was used to communicate between machines. On the coco3 it does some strange
stuff: type in DLOAD folowed by a colon, followed by alternating ctl and
alt keys (they look like @ and =). about three each should do. then hold
down both the ctl and alt and hit return. wowie zowie. then do a soft
reset and you're back to normal. It should look like this before
you hit return

DLOAD:@=@=@=

Bonus question: do you recognize what you see?
