Many years ago I worked with the HC11 for a few months when I was working on 
a traffic control system. The guy writing the software was amazing; he'd 
write reams of code at home overnight without so much as an assembler - and 
certainly no hardware - then in the morning paste it into the source, 
assemble it, and it would usually just run! And it was a nightmare of 
bank-switched ROM code!!!
