Persevere to the end and consider the different possibilities of doing things  :)

In the beginning we programmed in absolute binary... Finally, a Symbolic Assembly Program was devised ... about 1% of the older programmers were interested in it -- using [assembly] was "sissy stuff"

I can still see that attitude in assembly programming cycles. No more "binary", fortunately, but now macros are the "sissy stuff". The "bare metal" fans prefer writing ten lines of cryptic code instead of a simple print "hello" 8)
