This is my 8086th post to this forum. That is the number that started all of the entire x86 assembly history.

The next "special" number is 80286. Somehow I think might be not reachable Sad

8088 and 80186 are also there of course but not so interesting.

How long are you with ARM?
Personal question, you must not answer.

How long are my arms? They are just long enough to reach my shoulders.

Wrong... You're already downgraded to 8088.

The value is twisty and turny and unpredictable I'm afraid. I have passed through the awful 8088 phase and am now progressing towards 80186 and further onwards to 80286. Soon be there.

Curious. I wonder which came first, 8086 or 8088? Well, at least for our purposes, the IBM PC 5150 came with an 8088, and most of us are using IBM clones.

The 8086 ... was introduced to the market in the summer of 1978.

Larry Potter??? Hogwarts alum, perhaps? Laughing

That's also the exact date when the Sony Walkman (portable tape player) went on sale in Japan. It also happens to be the exact birthday of my brother and me.

Unimportant numbers. If my granny hasn't heard of it then it is unimportant. Wink

Hmmm, I misread the title of this thread as "port number 8086". And I started wondering...
Code:
        mov     dx,8086
        in      al,dx   ; anything interesting there?
