    Ah, the dear dead days of assembler, z80, 6303, 6805, 8085, and that shock to the system: 8086.

    How I do miss them.

    Still writing PIC assembler though, or I would be if I did anything technical any more.

    Found what I think was a dead hawk on the road, difficult to tell since it was extremely flat.

    I quite miss assembly language too. At least you didn't have to worry about leaky abstractions in the language or slightly different behaviour across implementations (not counting the JMP indirect bug on the 6502, or the "undocumented" instructions that became documented on the 6510)

    Lunch: cold sausage + cold rasher of bacon in a wholemeal butty. Lovely

    I've been in the habit of freezing sausages and bacon in sets of three, which means I ended up with one of each left over after yesterday's lunch. I can't decide whether to start doing them in pairs for the sake of the vague diet, or to keep on as I am for the sake of the cold ones in a sandwich the day after, as I'm very partial to the sandwiches and they have the advantage of having half as many calories as the previous day's - less, in fact, as I don't have butter on the cold ones.

    Today's weigh-in came in almost two pounds lighter than yesterday despite the ultra-high-calorie lunch, so I'm still getting something right

    I'd say stick with your current system.

    Lunch was one of those part-baked baguettes freshly cooked up. Filled with cheese and ham.

    Yes, I probably will. The threes are also the right amount for things like chips, sausage and beans, and I seldom plan meals more than a few hours ahead so having them in pairs would limit my options more

    Sunny here now, but keeping to a modest 19°C with a quite pleasant light breeze

    Just noticed there's wet stuff on my little patio. Not sure if it's rain or waterings.

    Weather app says its 22 degrees.

    I really must get a proper little home weather station thingummy.

    <update>
    It was rain. Waterings would have covered the whole patio in a small flood.

    Sitting in garden when a pigeon landed on trellis nearby. It flew off when I started moaning to myself. Unsympathetic little bastard, I wont' be leaving him any seed this winter.
