This is not specifically for the tutorial itself, but since it is calc programming related, would you like a sub-forum for this project?

That would be nice!  Thanks a lot!  If you could put both the discussion section and the lessons section in the same sub forum, that would be a great aid.

I noticed few people downloaded the second tutorial.  There may be good reason, but I wanted to make sure everyone knew it's up, in the main topic.

the issue with doc, tho, is the lower compatibility than PDFs. Text would be nice for people who don't have enough admin priviledges to install a doc/pdf reader on school computers that has no USB port tun run portable softwares from. Else, an alternative would be online version of the tutorials in HTML format.

I just finished reading the second lesson. That I was able to understand perfectly!! It was a great tutorial. With learn asm in 28 days I was like, what's register? Now I understand how it works. What I especially like about your tutorial is that it's really fun to read it. Adding those cartoons sure make me laugh :) great job and keep up the good work

Thanks for saying something, jsj!  That's the one tutorial I was worried about, so I'm now at 100% confidence for the rest of the tutorials.  You definitely deserve a +1 for making my day

Lol I just took a quick look at Lesson 3, and I wonder if for early BASIC programmers, Axe Parser couldn't act as some sort of bridge towards ASM? Some of the pointer stuff seems pretty similar to Axe. Of course, in lower level but still pointers/memory addresses

It seemed pretty well explained btw. It might be good to specify how much RAM exactly in total the 83+ has, though.
