    A truly outstanding talent; a remarkable man; a great loss.

    Robert,
    Great articles. Thanks for posting. Do you know how one purchases the video called 'Growing the 8 Bit Generation'?

    It is funny, at that period, I was a Intel fan ( partly because I worked there ). I was never much of a fan of the 6502 but today looking back on it, I realize what a fantastic thing is was for computing. Both Intel and Motorola were busy milking every one with no idea what the market really was and where it could go. As time went on I found the PC clones to be more useful than Apple's machines but that was because I was a low level software and hardware type. Still, the 6502 was an enormous benefit to the entire industry.
    I've always felt that the 6502's 16 bit abilities were clumsy, having tried to write a few larger memory applications in 6502 code. Still, there is no denying that it was a significant advance for all.
