   IIc hacks remind me of the younger days of computing.  I got a IIc in
the 5th grade, as I remember.  What a marvel of technology!  My first
"hack", such as it was, was on that machine.
   There was the ol' ProDOS disk that came with it, and it had the
selection of games to play.  One of these was the infamous lemonaide stand
game.  All the programs were (of course) written in BASIC.  A friend and I
took a look-see at the code, and decided we'd make it so that we could
start out with about $5,000, make it never rain, and always get a lot of
   Of course, after this there wasn't a lot of challenge to the game, but
it seemed _really_ neat.
