Welcome Back!

After a brief outage, we are back with a fresh new look. Out with the godawful WordPress, replaced by my own CMS system. It's an improved version of the one I have been using on AXORiON.com for a while now.

This site is about programming, robotics, and electronics. Languages discussed include, Java, C/C++, Assembly, and BASIC. Wait, BASIC? Heck yeah. I grew up on Color BASIC for the Color Computer 3. I'll be adding back my favorite articles from the old 8BitCoder site, and adding new tutorials and code breakdowns.

Please feel free to have a look around, and if you like a particular article, there is a new Like button. If you don't like something, well, there is also a dislike button.

But alas, 2 weeks is a little tight, and I don't think I would get enough done in a month anyway. I believe they will have another one in September this year, so I'll be prepared for that! Good luck to the list of challengers!

Mar 12, 2019

Excellent progress on CocoJEM today. I think I have figured out how I will read and process opcodes as I read them from memory. Still need to workout what I want to do for the different addressing modes.
