I clicked on the link in your signature; didn't know you were into 6502. I spent most of my youth doing assembly on c64. I now collect 8bit computers and build them when I get time-off from family/work.

The 6502 has come a long way since the C64 days (although not as far as the x86 has come). In fact, it is selling in volumes of hundreds of millions of units per year today, mostly at the heart of custom ICs in automotive and consumer electronics and even life-support equipment. The fastest ones are running over 200MHz. The 65816 is of course much better suited for multitasking, multithreading, relocatable code, etc., and I actually find it easier to program.

I would like to triple the size of my website with a lot more great material I have in the plans. All it would require is getting a grant of some kind so I could quit my job and just work on my website! LOL I wish I had taken some decent pictures though of the days when I used the HP-41 for controlling a lot of lab test equipment. (I do have a few, but they're embarassing, with messy workbench and so on.) My story of how I got into all this is at the top of There's a more-strictly-calculator-oriented one at which I've wanted to edit now that I have more HP-41 peripherals, but I can't. Neither my current password nor my old one get me in. (Lots of HP-41 links at the bottom of the links page, )
