Of course -- this feature is so important that all computer 
manufacturers worldwide have made a special button on the computer 
case just for this!

Normally it's a large round button, with perhaps a green backlight. 
Press the button and hold it in for about 3 seconds, and the rest of 
your code/writing will be ignored just as it should be.
