    Ah ha!!! That explains a lot. :wink: :roll:

    Was it you who talked about assembly language programming? I thought that language was dead and gone -- I did it in college -- but I thought it was dead. Then, several months back, I saw a job posting looking for an assembly language programmer. :shock: :?

    What's up with that? :?

    Hmm. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to take that.

    Oh, assembly language is very much alive and well. That is, afer all, the only language that the computer understands natively; all the programs written in any of the other programming languages has to be translated or interpreted into assembly for the computer to understand it. OK, so actually assembly is the human-readable form of the machine code which is the only language that the computer understands, but you get the idea.

    Although most programming is done in higher-level languages instead of in assembly, there are still projects that require assembly, such as device drivers and really-time-critical operations like computer-game graphics (though I wouldn't be surprised if there weren't some highly optimized special compilers for those graphics). And we do have some very low-level functionality in our projects that we could only have accomplished in assembly.

    Hmmm. I study people's brains? (Or I procrastinate on-line when I should be studying their brains?) But that's OK they're post-mortem so they're not going anywhere ;)

    Name Says It Most

    I have been a Criminal/Intelligence Analyst for the US Army. That's been the first 10 years of my career and now I'm adjusting to a new area of study that involves flight and a ton of electronics.

    The whole dance thing doesn't go over very well with extremely conservative soldiers that don't want more than to drink and . . to drink more!

    And you are in the right position to do a little influencing? Welcome ASM. :)

    Influence

    Influence exists for those who want to exert it on other people. I'm a more laid-back soldier that does a lot of listening and doesn't brag about nightly exploits or praying to porcelain gods. There is a way to be a cool character but there are definitely more high-speed people than me who exert what they think they know.

    study study

    I am a student at a local community college with no certain direction. Basically, I am like a chicken with its head cut off. I hope to figure out what I am going to major in soon. I used to work part-time at a Taco Bell but, I no longer work there. I hope to hold another part-time job soon outside the fast food industry. (not career, PART-TIME) lol
