Geekometer

Instant geek test:

Z80000.pdf

Your response:

1. Huh?
2. Should I download that or something?
3. Don't you have an extra zero in there?
4. Right-click Save As!!!
5. I already have that, thanks.
6. I suppose it's more convenient than the paper version.
7. There's an error on page 310; the instruction coding doesn't match my chip.

Results below. 1. You are not at all geeky. Go about your life, secure in your blessings.

2. You probably know a geek, maybe a friend or a family member.

3. You are a little bit geeky.

4. You are a geek.

5. You are very geeky.

6. You not only know what DTACK GROUNDED means, you have every issue published.

7. I hate you.

1 umm, i knew it was for a Zilog chip from the name before i #4'd it. Does that count? :-D

2 I answered #1. Will you still be my friend? ;)

3 A little geeky. One of the joys of having worked at RadioShack for a couple of years.

4 That takes me back. Remember when Zilog and National Semiconductor were still competing in the high performance microprocessor marketplace? It's a damned shame that National's 32032 never went anywhere; there was a sweet chip.

5 Zilog's still hanging in there in the embedded market, I like the Z8, but they really blew things in the high performance microprocessor marketplace. If they'd actually produced the Z800 when they published the instruction set, instead of years later as the Z8150 (usually bought as the Hitachi equivalent) they might now be where Intel is. As for DTACK GROUNDED, most of the folks in the crowd I was on the fringe of (along with M. Simon who now blogs at Power & Control) thought that running a 68000 in synchronous mode was a throwback to the middle ages.

6 When I saw it I instantly thought of the Z80 chip used in older computers and video game systems.
