hundreds of American servicemen were lost, weekly.

-> We should also mention the thousands of civilians (many of them killed by US service troops) that were lost weekly as well

Thanks for the link to Small C. I was looking for a compiler for my HP-95 pocket MSDOS machine, and Small C may work.

I fondly recall Dr. Dobb's from the late 70s on. I once got a tiny bugfix published there. I remember Falconer Floating Point which stored one floating-point number in three bytes (instead of the four bytes needed for single-precision), so two floats could be stored at once in 8080 registers.

Yes, for Dr Dobb's it looks like premature death. Wished it could have survived one more decade.

some stories from yester-year show up on EE Times- maybe one story a month reprinted on its anniversary...

I would read them...
