remanence of the PC computing past: Intel MCS-86 Assembly Language Reference Guide

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/09/24

Remanence of the PC computing past: Intel MCS-86 Assembly Language Reference Guide on bitsavers.org in http://bitsavers.org/pdf/intel/8086.

Intel MCS-86 is/was the 16-bit range of x86 processors.

I used it in BASM (not only in Delphi 1 and up, it started in Turbo Pascal 6), and before that in MASM, NASM, and TASM.

How to solve stuck iPad keeping asking for Exchange password (via: My Ipod touch is stuck in the password…: Apple Support Communities)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/09/24

The missus had a stuck iPad that kept asking for her Exchange password (which worked fine in webmail).

Turns out this is a known bug and has a simple solution: Reset your iPad.

That solution works for both iPad, iPhone and iPod touch as lllaass answered:

Re: My Ipod touch is stuck in the password screen and I can’t turn it off or cancel.  The screen that it is stuck at says :enter the password for the exchange account “exchange”

Try resetting the iPod. Nothing will be lost.

Reset iPod touch:  Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears
