in thread Out-Of-Date Optimizations? New Idioms? RAM vs. CPU

I've recently been rediscovering the art (and joy) of coding stuff using macro assembler. Full-blown windows GUI applications in executables of less that 20k, and memory footprints even smaller than typical by an even greater margin. Processing speeds that take your breath away even on my lowly 233Mhz.

How would one get started on this? Thanks.

    Google for "MASM v8 download" and read a lot.
