Long) Subject: My Apple ][ test Date: 30 Nov 89 11:30:07 GMT Unofficial APPLE ][ Brainwash Test Have you been brainwashed by your past experience as an Apple ][ hacker? Here is a test you can take to find out. 1. What is /r$ ? a) "slash r string" b) "slash r dollar sign" c) a subdirectory of the root directory d) Rich Salz 2. Do people wonder why you keep using "Applesoft" as a synonym for BASIC? 3. Do you despise assemblers, prefering instead to code your programs byte by byte in machine language with a debugger? 4. Do you only use three registers when programming because "if A, X, and Y are good enough for the 6502, then by golly they're good enough for me"? 5. Do you still have floppies that have write-protect holes on both sides, but are labeled "single sided"? 6. Are you uncomfortable with the words "interrupt," "timer," or "multitasking"? 7. Do you have "Beneath Apple DOS"? 8. Do you wonder why any Gentleman would need more than 64K? 9. Are you distrustful of lowercase? 10. Do you have "alias CATALOG ls" in you .login? 11. Do you despise anything that is not overtly user-hostile? 12. Wonder why & doesn't do the same thing in UNIX? 13. Think ^D in UNIX is a DOS command?
