    Interestingly, there is an image from the book, “Core Memories”, (a book about old computers) which shows a black button over a red button. The red button is “Stop” and the black button is “Run”. This likely accounts for the graphics above. You want to hit the “Run” button, not the “Stop” button.

      Me too! (There is a subtle piece of information about that picture. It mirrors the Run/Stop button on some older mainframe computers. Not sure if that was intentional or not, but I am assuming it was)
