Nice read. My first "Hello World" was a blinking LED on a Radio Shack 30-in-1 kit around 1985! I was hooked for life. These days a "Hello, World!" in a new programming language doesn't do anything for me. The thrill comes instead when I get a correctly working conditional. THEN I get excited :D

I loved those RS zillion-in-1 kits! Also I know what you mean about "Hello World" in a new programming language - but for some reason, lighting up an LED for me is always thrilling. Not sure why.

Yep! It's an "Achievement get!" moment for sure. Last year I designed my first PCB's, just two of them, and they both worked! Also a very satisfying thing. Engineering is fun :)

My programming cherry was popped by a Commie 64, but I shared the thrill ;)

Happy New Year Ned.

Your description of encountering field service for the first time, with a DEC technician bringing in a device resembling a mini washing machine to clean disk platters, is both intriguing and nostalgic.

50 lines of code, with the majority https://rainbowobby.com of them being assembler commands, equates, or comments. The main loop consists of nine lines, six of which deal with the delay.

I just finished one of those recently. As a learning exercise I did the blinking LED on a Raspberry Pi Pico in ARM assembler. 50 lines of code, most of which are assembler directives, equates, or comments. The main loop is nine lines, six of which have to do with the delay.
