Apple "Thanks to 35-year-old documents that have recently surfaced after three-plus decades in storage, we now know exactly how Apple navigated around that obstacle to create the company's first disk operating system. In more than a literal sense, it is also the untold story of how Apple booted up. From contracts - signed by both Wozniak and Jobs - to design specs to page after page of schematics and code, CNET had a chance to examine this document trove, housed at the DigiBarn computer museum in California's Santa Cruz Mountains, which shed important new light on those formative years at Apple."

I get a lot of attention from CIA. You know how much they want back door and logging and monitoring and shut-off and stuff, so I'm not crazy about this.

Anyway, the agents I work with like to detect guilt and capitalize.

I don't know if I tipped them off with a comment, but the yokals who handle me think that assembly language knowlegde is in the same category as a gun.

I see this on web sites -- painting assembly language as unlawful hacking knowledge. This is furiously not fair! I had 5 assembly language courses in school and half my job experience was ordinary work in assembly language.

It is bitterly not fair to have guilt focused on assembly language knowlegde. This is blatant evil government wanting ignorance. They have turned it into something criminal or like nuclear secrets.

I'm not sure how much was my yokal handlers simply using my uncomfort against me. It's so retarded it can't come from knowledagable folks.
