General Development I asked for more of this, and I got it. "There has been much interest in assembly lately (whether the real 6502, or the fictional DCPU-16; I even created my own virtual 8-bit CPU called i808 in 2007), but none of this attention focuses on the architecture that is most popular in today's computers. If you are reading this on a desktop, laptop, or server then your computer is most likely using x86-64 (or x86). x86-64 is the 64-bit superset of the 32-bit x86 architecture and any modern CPU from AMD or Intel supports it. This document will focus on the most used parts of x86-64."

I DO miss coding in x86. Taught myself back in the early 90's. Wasn't a great coder but I dug how low-level it was.

int 20h ;bye!

EDIT:
Forgot to mention I still code. But I'm stuck in ColdFusion/Oracle SQL land right now. I get very little chance to do any .Net, be it C# or what not. :-(
