I recall a 1987-ish BYTE magazine issue on Soviet computing. USSR’s best chip foundries churned out flaky CPUs. Back then, Western hard discs shipped with bad-sector lists, telling what addresses to avoid. Soviet CPUs shipped with bad-instruction lists, showing codes to avoid for that particular chip. Same-model computers might have totally different usable instruction sets. MOV B,ADDR might work on some and not on others.
Takes a rugged math fiend to work with that shit.
Good? This means the robot uprising won’t happen and I won’t have to feign allegiance to super intelligent computers.
Sounds better than having to feign allegiance to super corrupt human dumbasses, frankly.
“We are having difficulty finding people with the skills to create the robots that would take their jobs.”
The original need for self-modifying code?
