Two miles!, and how many hundreds of thousands of years did you guys not
plow the
road to allow it to get that high? ;-)

R&R, Whats wrong with McMurdo? Net connection slower? Penguins not as cute?

1802 Emulator, Is it just a hex pad / led display toy? The 1802 sure is
a interesting architecture,
Not a classic cpu, almost a forth engine, but closer to the hardware
with the register file and
it's pc and acc selection regs. I think writing a compiler for that
thing would either make my brain
explode or become a 1802 convert. Thanks for the 1802 lead, I collect,
hack and play with emulators.
