    @runfrodorun TIL. But the argument stemmed from a discussion regarding frostbite when BF3 was about to be released.

    That said I did find the tidbit fascinating.

    I had a professor who taught computer architectures to us and had a tale about how he wrote code back in the day before even assembly, in binary, to level the barrel of soviet made tanks. Hardcore stuff.
