Definitely BASIC. Probably like a lot of us, I wrote a simple loop program that printed out all of the combinations of a spin dial combination lock. I thought I was "Da Man". That was in 1980.

    I thought everyone did the "jumping-jack man". I don't remember the exact syntax, but something like
    10 PRINT "\O/" 20 PRINT " | " 30 PRINT "/ \" 40 (clrscr or something) 50 PRINT " O " 60 PRINT "|||" 70 PRINT " | " 80 (clear screen again) 90 GOTO 10
