|Who am I|
My name is Andrea Griffini and I was born in 1966 in Vigevano (a small
town of about 60,000 in Pavia district). I got my highschool diploma in
computer science and I've a degree in pure math. I've been
always in Vigevano excluding during high school (I got my diploma on
the beautiful Lago Maggiore, in Verbania Intra) and a period of about
one year during which I was living in Los Angeles.
I like chess, karate, ski, music (I like playing the
piano ) and,
of course, computer programming. I spend a lot of my free time on
my computer writing programs; but also on ICQ (16-851-219) and
playing chess with other people from the internet with the nickname
Internet chess club ,
www.playchess.com and every now and then even on
I'm currently an employee of
COMELZ of Vigevano and my occupation is mainly writing control and support
software for the industrial machines the company produces.
6502 is the name of the first microprocessor I ever programmed (Apple ][,
'82) and is also my nickname since I've got the IRC disease. I know it's
not a great nickname but at least this means I don't have to fight for
my nick when getting online.
Quite often someone hits this site looking for infos about the 6502
microprocessor; getting angry because of the absence of anything related
to the micro (excluding my devotion).
I've lately tried to fix this problem writing a
6502 emulator and a very rough Apple ][ emulator to test it.
