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!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
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.
