- Hi Tony, Lee...
Yes, definitely we are all winners, if that's what we are here for.
I've been reading a lot about the wonderful ideas people here
have for making their own EOS (Elf Operating System).
I think it's just amazing to see all the possiblities. I like the
"Replace Tape Recorder with Windows Wave Recorder" idea.
I was excited 25 years ago and I'm still excited when
7B 30 00 lights up the Q - LED! I wrote so much machine
code, I feel kind of lost writting in 1802 assembler.
Somehow, ldi doesn't feel the same as F8, and definitely E2
isn't like SEX R2... at least not in the bedroom.
Hmm, better keep it clean... I'll 38 any Ex commands
and take a long C4 on the couch.
