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.

Assembler? Pah! I've handwritten mnemonics on a sheet of paper and translated them switch positions to write my own assembler (get off my lawn ;) )


You lucky bastard! I had to solder my processor from hundreds of transistors! Now get your carriage off my propiearty!

You youngsters and your transistors. :p
In my day we had to weld valves into a computer the size of a small building. And when we had bugs in the system, they were literally house flies.

You were lucky to have valves! Back in my day, computing was done using our heads. We had to work 28 hours a day, 8 days a week, supply our own pens and paper and hope that the foreman didn't hit us for writing with it!
