I got in a little trouble at the library when I started bringing in bits
of hardware to hang on the back the public PETs (via the User Port). The
powers that be were also unfriendly to machine code because they were told
that it could harm the computers (this is long before killer POKEs).

That was at age 11. By 13, we had a PET at home. Problem solved.
