IBM 650.

"The IBM 650 is a decimal computer made from vacuum tubes in pluggable units with magnetic drum main memory. The basic system consists of the computer itself with a front operator panel, the power supply which is the same size but featureless and the IBM 533 card reader/punch that was the input/output device."

...

No fair that doesn't fit in your bedroom!


I learned machine language 6502 on the Vic20 and later got the commodore64 which was 6510... I started on a Timex/ Sinclair ZX81.  Used to stay up all night programming.
Ah the good old days.


Did you have to build the sinclair?


I pioneered the JNR - jump never return whilst at university working with machine code

An interesting take on the NVT Signal: “How to Value Cryptoassets (Part I)” https://medium.com/whaleblocks/how-to-value-cryptoassets-part-i-49f244962c7d

But somehow it seems off for the current situation (see link in my comment beneath the article).

You gotta go back when you goto in structured. Tongue

my 1st assembly language program was on a trs-80 model one.. it was pretty much this:

                            LOAD A, "E"
LOOP_OF_DEATH:  PUSH AF
                            GOTO LOOP_OF_DEATH

i did it to see how fast i could fill the screen with the letter "E" vs BASIC code (POKE x,y) as with BASIC you could see it fill as the loop executed.  with PUSH i figured the stack would grow till it filled all memory, including the memory mapped video screen. it did. not to mention overwriting itself eventually of course.

with the machine language code the screen was instantly filled and the machine locked up before i could even begin to take my finger off the RETURN key heh. i was impressed. helped me understand just how fast straight machine code was vs interpreted code.

Any upgrade to bitcoin is a huge bonus and very welcome. Especially when the sidechains have a different proof of work algorithm than the mainchain. Bitcoin should will be upgraded to the point where altcoins will become obsolete and anyone and everyone will buy bitcocaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaain to the moon, past the mars rover into the pegasus galaxy.

No, it's all sad flailing about. Might up the price a bit though in the medium term.

I’m not sure how they account for transaction batching in the NVT calculation, as the number of transactions is falling due to batching.

On Liquid, not that excited. It is a private highway for Bitcoin whales to quickly and silently move their Bitcoin. Access is not available to regular users.  It goes against the democratic principles of Bitcoin.

Bait and switch. Liquid does not implement sidechains, as originally envisioned (as a permissionless, uncensorable, two-way peg).

I remain confident that Bitcoin is intended to be decentralised and depermissioned. Maybe you were thinking of XRP?

    President Trump has been briefed on the market sell off this afternoon. A senior White House official gives me this comment now: “This is a bull market correction. It’s probably healthy. This will pass and the US economy remains strong.”
