    Re: The Apollo 11 guidance computer code

    Here's another article talking about the Apollo code at quartz (qz.com). There are also articles on a variety of other sites in the past couple of days, but this one seems to be the most detailed in describing what's new (and what's not) in this latest development. I have to say I'm amazed that anyone was puzzled by the Shakespeare quote in the code comments. The "noun and verb" reference would be obvious to anyone who has read about the guidance computer's operation before. That's one of the very first things you learn about the interface.
