General Development "In this tiny ebook I'm going to show you how to get started writing 6502 assembly language. [...] I think it's valuable to have an understanding of assembly language. Assembly language is the lowest level of abstraction in computers - the point at which the code is still readable. Assembly language translates directly to the bytes that are executed by your computer's processor. If you understand how it works, you've basically become a computer magician." More of this, please.

Member since:

my friends C64's 6510 was even nicer, but that's another story

And that niceness was in a much less expensive package, but that's anot... hm, no wait, something like this goes on also in present ;p

Times have changed.

Didn't change totally; similar coding style still goes on with many microcontrollers (tons of them around), including some DIY stuff - this AVR "console" for example:

Me, one day... I will make an Atari 2600 game - 128 bytes of RAM and racing the beam, here I come!
(I'm not really in a hurry though - in fact, I think that doing it on a half-century mark would be even more curious, so still 15 years to go; notably, also a 6502 variant)
