Comments Off on Push cx
My first programming language was Hypercard (probably 2.0). A slight change of pace, my second programming language was x86 assembly and I have a small warm spot in my heart for it. I keep the small warm spot deep underneath the frozen lake of frustration I have in my heart for x86 assembly. Anyways, on x86, cx is the count register, one of only four registers (well, not really at the time and not anymore, but work with me here.)
When I noticed the country code for Christmas Island is .cx and that domains are available, I realized it was a rare opportunity for a truly geeky domain name. There’s only a handful of opcodes that take the cx register alone, and I went for push; I’ve always liked stacks.
Welcome to what I plan to be a rather geeky blog.
