The Apple II had a DISassembler, it can take a stream of hex opcodes and print the assembler code on screen. It certainly did not have an assembler in ROM, you had to type in Hex Opcodes.

Man I miss that. Once wrote a program to draw an explosion in Low-Res graphics mode and it was at $300, right next to the graphics memory. Made a mistake and the shrapnel-pixels shot through my code. The program literally blew itself up. I, of course, forgot to save it. Typed the thing in by hand in Hex.

Gonzales: There is one question, Inspector Callahan: Why do they call you "Dirty Harry"?
De Georgio: Ah that's one thing about our Harry, doesn't play any favorites! Limeys, Micks, Hebes, Fat Dagos, Niggers, Spics, Honkies, Chinks, you name it. Harry hates everybody equally.
Gonzales: How does he feel about Mexicans?
De Georgio: Ask him.
Harry Callahan: Especially Spics.

Comment Welcome to democracy! (Score 1) 205

Welcome to the main problem with democracy. The people who vote do not understand the minute details fo what they are voting for. See Brexit and the election of Hitler for good examples.

Which is why a representative democracy is always better. Direct democracy is a baaaaaaaaad idea.
