This web site is about digging up old, forgotten computer systems and cracking open the code that ran on them. Think of each program as a different “dig site”. I am a nerdy Indiana Jones. My goal is to find the original programmer’s spirit, ideas, and ingenuity in the code — the programmer’s “flavor”. There are code gems and wise idea-nuggets in these programs buried in the ancient (decades past) ROMs of old. My goal is to dust them off and put them on display for all to share. Welcome to my museum!
This site is auto-generated from the markdown files in a public github repository. All of the web content and tools are here: https://github.com/topherCantrell/computerarcheology. You will find plenty of tools — assemblers, disassemblers, formatters, etc — and the disassembly text files (free from HTML markup).
Want to add your own disassembly to this site? Or want to enhance/correct my work? Fork the github repo and send me a merge request — I’ll add your work to the museum.
There is a ton of neat stuff to explore here! This tip was sent in in by Christopher, Thanks for sharing!
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
