    Project mention: MartyPC is a cycle accurate PC XT Emulator and the first to run 5150 Demo | /r/emulation | 2023-07-02

    Just wanted to point out that you don't need to hunt down any ROMs to run Area 5150, if you use the current release (0.1.2) it will run out of the box using an open-source ROM called GLaBIOS . The distribution includes Area 5150 (with permission), just start MartyPC, select the floppy and enjoy.

    Project mention: Understanding the x86's Decimal Adjust after Addition (DAA) instruction | | 2023-01-30

    I have used DAA recently, in my "load option ROM in RAM floppy tool"[0]. Specifically, I use it for printing numbers as hexadecimal[1], as unfortunately the ASCII standard is not arranged in a way as to facilitate this.
