  1. Deep C rescue

    Great caption, huh?


    Introduction
    I'm a self-taught programmer that started out with C64 BASIC back in the 1980;ies. I quickly moved on to 6502 assembler and became quite good at coding demos, I'm still impressed what a 8-bit 1MHz CPU is capable of. As a natural next step I moved on to 16-bit assembler on the Amiga (Motorola 68k) and produced a few demos there aswell. Started using C to tie my assembly routines together, and later used it as a high level language to make ...
