I don't wish to write code in assembly, I just wish to be able to see
what the heck it is doing when it isn't doing what I want it to :)

Does anyone remember the 2 funny guys who ran that cool puzzle column
where they debugged stuff? It used to be in the Develop magazine thingy.
I never received Develop, but I used to read them online. I want to be
more like them instead of scratching my head all day.
