@SDF I love how an UNIX server from the 80s is providing super modern services like Minecraft and Pixelfed. You're great!

Success! Assembling #PDP8 assembly and running machine code under #TSS8 is not as bad as I thought. I just misunderstood the EDIT commands before. For posterity's sake (and for the sake of anyone who wants to try it for themselves), log in to @SDF 's TSS8 machine, and:

1. "R EDIT" to run the text editor. Leave "INPUT" blank and select an output filename. Enter "A" (for append mode). Type your assembly source (see Wikipedia's PDP-8 page for an example). Hit Ctrl-C to exit edit mode. Enter "P" (to "proceed" with saving). Enter "T" (to "terminate" and close the output file). You should end up back at the TSS8 monitor prompt.
2. "R PALD" and choose your input file and a new filename for an output file. Leave "OPTION" blank.
3. "R LOADER" and choose the output file from step 2. This will load your machine code into memory.
4. "START 0200" (or whatever your program's entry point was)

Now to start playing around with the instruction set!

I wonder who made MANDEL.BAS on the system?

Well, here it is in a little video (speed up around 2x to 10x to keep it around a minute)

I used all of the BASIC knowledge I learned when I was 6 to write a simple number guessing game.
:crt_w_prompt: :blobcatcoffee:

Get on the PDP-8 and run 'GUESS' to check it out~

Don't expect a work of art tho.
:crt_w_green_lines: :blobcat3c:

Fun fact: I had to add an RNG "mixing" stage because it turns out the PDP-8 doesn't have a clock seeded RNG.

Oh, that was you... I overwrote that program... but I'm sure it's simple enough to recreate.
