@emilio Keep this in mind folks: "Some computers have a built-in assembler; with others, you can buy an assembler on cassette and load it into the computer's memory."

@emilio Usborne computer books were the best! I wish we still taught kids how computers actually work instead of just how to use apps.

@emilio The pictures are quite confusing in many places, but this is still better than nothing, thank you.

@emilio Heh. Those Usbourne guides were awesome. I had that book when I was a kid. Possibly still in a box somewhere.
