The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

Oh, it's 8 bit all right. Looks like both processors are from 1976. Despite that, they are both very different. There actually seems to be one thing about the 8085 that seems even weirder than the unconventional 1802:

The 1802 multiplexed its address bus to save eight pins. The 8085 has 16 address lines, but multiplexes the lower half with the data bus. In both cases the obligatory bus drivers and/or latches on every board could handle (and hide) this very well, but multiplexing addresses and data seems weird.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
