Assembly language programming used to be pretty straightforward. Now it's fucking voodoo. Since when does removing an unnecessary subroutine call make a program slower??? Fuck prefetch.

I've got lots of programs I could be writing, some which would pay me now, some which might pay me eventually, and some which will never pay anything. So which one do I choose? You guessed it. Postforth. I've got version 0 working again (the new version of 'as' didn't recognize my comments as comments) and I'm probing the waters to decide what kind of threading to use on version 1.
