I still prefer to code in PIC assembler

Now that I have justified the [PIC], let me comment on the last email posting:

1. There were 25 postings on the Piclist and not one of them was PIC related.

2. Some of the brightest minds I know found the time to argue over the choice of units systems.

I miss the old days when we enjoyed the challenge of solving complex problems with an 8 bit PIC. Remember the days of 40 bit calculations without floating point operations?  How about working with non-linear functions by using piecewise linear interpolation (AN942)?  I used that technique to translate pressure into altitude.

More recent posts don't contain the mental challenges, the gamesmanship, of old.  Its enough to drive me to cross word puzzles.
