Hardware, Embedded Systems "Quick - name the most important personal computer of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Those of you who mentioned the legendary Apple II - that's fine. I respect your decision. Forced to think objectively in 2012, I may even agree. But if you just named Radio Shack's TRS-80, you made me smile. Your choice is entirely defensible. And back in the TRS-80's heyday, I not only would have agreed with it but would have vehemently opposed any other candidate."

Member since:

I stopped coding in the BASIC/Assembler period. BASIC was slow, Assembler was fast. So each time anything but Assembler is used I get the feeling things aren't as effective/fast as they could be.

But I promisse I will start learning a (modern) language.
