Here's my #introductions...
Isn't the world a lovely place but in a fine old state though?
@EdS I'm the same way. It was my first love :) I learned on an Apple II, but couldn't afford one of my own, so I bought a Vic-20. Just had to learn the different ROM locations for the common routines. And then I realized what an engineering mess the Vic was, so I went to engineering school.
@EdS You know, that was the best way to learn. As a kid, there I was, hacking out machine code (I didn't have an assembler, so I actually memorized the opcodes for the 6502!) and learning more about programming than the other kids.
@EdS I fondly remember my first calculator. Dad worked on a NASA project in those days (Apollo) and had access to nifty little hardware like that, so he brought me home a calculator with 7-segment LED that you could watch twitch around while it did the heavier stuff (like a SIN, which would take a few minutes).
@EdS I briefly worked on a project for marketing with the BBC Micro, and really liked it. The project manager was a bit nuts, and had this incredibly violent dog that was one thin door away from me. Talk about on-the-job pressure!
@EdS At $0300 on an Apple II:
030F: C8 C5 CC CC CF 00
(On a C64 or Vic20, change $FDED to $FFD2)
