marc.hull Posted June 3, 2010 Share Posted June 3, 2010 I thought it would be useful to log our recurring lamentables while coding in language of mnemonics. Perhaps we can help each other and get a laugh... Come on..... how many times have you SWORN your machine was broken My top 10..... 10. Not remembering the fact that my DEC loop does not end until after zero has been reached. 09. Chasing down an impossible error because a BLWP was where a BL should have been. (#1 reason for shelving old BLWP....) 08. Confusing your CPU memory moves with your VDP memory moves. (Happens to the most seasoned sometimes...) 07. Not shutting off the interrupt and winding up in video la-la land. (why is the screen broken ???) 06. Getting the color table mixed up with the pattern table and scratching your ass for an hour.... 05. Typing 0854 when you meant >0854. Stupid computer do what I MEAN !! 04. Buffer full... WTF do you mean buffer full ??? 03. @, * +,() ?????? Who doesn't have to revisit the addressing modes section every now and then ?? 02. Ohhhhh, MOVB byte DOESN'T clear the LSB....... Damn... that would have been good to remember and finally my favorite and most likely error caused for us fumble fingers.... 01. NOOOOoooooo. If I have told you once I have told you a million times you STOOOOPID computer..... It is NOT R-OH you simple minded POS ! It is R-ZERO !!!!!! Just because I typed R-OH.... you should know I meant R-ZERO !!!!! You sorry piece of M***F*** SH****. Are you TRYING to piss me off tonight ??? Oh.... Sorry.... Let's hear em coders ....
