@neauoire No, but I *am* reading the rulebook for Vampire: The Masquerade 5e, so there is that.

@epilanthanomai Just a quick heads-up that I got an AWS connectivity alert for . Now, obviously I'm telling you on here, so it appears everything is up for right now, but be sure to keep an eye out.

@neauoire Finishing this thread though it went cold. Does asm6 offer you the .dw directive instead? That might do it.

@neauoire Not easy for me to grab the docs for it, but I suspect .db expects a list of single byte values, hence the "value out of range"

@neauoire they're all the same size. Why not use an integer to index them? Or put the labels themselves in an array?

@peregrine @neauoire Just checked. The 6502 has no microcode but does use a PLA so someone did program it's internal control logic.

@peregrine @neauoire I'd believe multiple operations, and possibly even a light microcode internally, but AFAIK no outward facing code for them, so no opcode for them. Usually when someone says "one instruction, many opcodes", I understand it to mean the instruction is actually an alias to a sequence of instructions. Then again, the 6502 is pretty spare and the opcodes themselves may be the bit string for the internal operations.

@peregrine @neauoire Multiple opcodes per instruction on the 6502? The instruction set always looked so raw...

Today I learned that many/most color laser printers layer an array of yellow microdots on top of documents 🔬

This Machine Identification Code en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_ encodes a print date and a serial number unique to the machine. It only became public knowledge in 2004, ~20 year after deployment 😑

@vk @vickysteeves Having something like OWL doesn't really change the power relationship of a service provider and their ability to decide what constitutes a "family unit", though. It just gives a new language to express that in.

@vickysteeves Data designers deciding what constitutes a family has been an endless inconvenience to me.
