    Man... I think I still have some old C64 values stuck in my head somewhere...

    • 1024: The location of the top-left character of screen memory.
    • 2048: Beginning of the BASIC program storage.
    • 32768: Beginning of the cartridge port memory space.
    • 53280: Location to poke to change the border color.
    • 53281: Location to poke to change the background color.

    UPDATE: I forgot one that haunts my dreams

    • EA: Opcode for the NOOP instruction in 6502/10 assembly.

    ... but I did forget the colour pokes.

    Even more interesting would be a list of constants that one just keeps forgetting, although mine would be quite long, including A4 / A5 paper formats etc.
    A lot of customer numbers, account numbers and passwords are in my head, and that's quite useful. Some phone numbers as well.
