barok and abionnnn,

Just for the record, I started programming in 1961 and used nothing but assembler for the next 20 years on mainframes, minis and micros. Played with a little Cobol, Algol and Dartmouth Basic in the 1970's. High level languages seemed easy after working in assembler. It's easier to drive a car with automatic when you learned on a stick-shift.

Without a doubt, your a serious begginer because no decent programmer goes to message boards and says that stuff. Nor does an intelligent person type in that ridiculus fashion. That leaves 1 of 2 things. 1, you figured out how to change the colors in command prompt which gives you a sense of "IM A HACKER". 2, your some kid trying to start an argument on a message board. If you had an honest question, you ask it without any stupidity.

...Im assuming your mad at this point... sorry, but it ain't my fault!

If you know asembler, prove it by answering these questions:
1. What is the difference between protected mode and real mode?
2. Name the 16 bit registers and their extended 32-bit counterparts
3. .486 refers to what intel processor(give its specific name)?
4a(if using NASM). what does the 'time' mnemonic do?
4b(if using MASM/TASM). should you use the 'loop' function in today's processors?
5. Did windows 3.1 run in real mode or protected mode?

Mods: append to the question list or modify it to make it harder.
