Archaeological finds in the forest

At the beginning of July in the taiga happened unusual natural phenomenon. Forty kilometers from the town of Vyazma, near the river Podkhorenok, in the forest was felled a few hectares of forest, as if someone swung a huge Mace on the ground, breaking, twisting with the root of ancient trees.

He had just returned from an expedition and hastened to the editor to share their discoveries and show the finds. Some of their artifacts he found in the garden of a local resident of the village Sheremetyevo Vyazemsky district, which he gathered in the woods and put on display for the kids.

At the time of its appearance, it was worth $25 — this is 4-5 times cheaper than competitors like the Intel 8080 and Motorola 6800. All, I mean who saw the movie “the Terminator”, will remember one of the first scenes: with a view “from eyes” of a cyborg. Running there lines of code is the MOS 6502 assembler. After the release of the processor from use of his drawings disappeared, since the MOS 6502 was created by a pencil on Whatman paper. Continue reading
