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.

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!

You had self-inking pens? In my day we had to whittle our own quills from the neighbours goose feathers.
