entering them with 8 toggle switches
Ah, the good old days.

I did that on a PDP-11/05 at school. The machine had an 80 word bootstrap that was fairly easy to wipe by accident, so you had to fat-finger it in via the front panel switches. I only had to do it once or twice, and it took me a few minutes. Reportedly there was a guy who could do it in less than 60 seconds. If you think about it, though, that implied if you became practiced at it, your code was pretty bad to create the problem in the first place.
