Didn't even do that. I had a Model 1 long before the school had a
computer. I think I'd even hand-wired my own Z80 system before I used a
school computer. Somehow typing in BASIC programs was less interesting
than doing a bit of interfacing or writing machine code (both of which
were forbidden on the school machines!).
