@neauoire No, but I *am* reading the rulebook for Vampire: The Masquerade 5e, so there is that.
@epilanthanomai There's a story here.
@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 I have a guess. Which assembler are you using?
@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 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.
@neauoire What, in this context, is Donsol?
Today I learned that many/most color laser printers layer an array of yellow microdots on top of documents 🔬
This Machine Identification Code https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_Identification_Code encodes a print date and a serial number unique to the machine. It only became public knowledge in 2004, ~20 year after deployment 😑
The Technical University of Dresden released a tool 2 years ago to layer on _even more dots_ to render the MIC unreadable and aid whistleblowers publishing https://github.com/dfd-tud/deda ✊
@vickysteeves What if instead of fighting it we just admit we all feel it? You, me, Neil Gaiman, Neil Armstrong...
@vickysteeves Data designers deciding what constitutes a family has been an endless inconvenience to me.

@paideuomai Those sorts of experiences are a crazy point of reference. I remember being given a box of Provigil, and while I did use it once in a while to ensure I didn't sleep at the wheel, its biggest impact on me was that I could suddenly pay attention to things without distraction.
