Geocache Description:

Assembler

Pocatecni souradnice Vas privedou pred budovu, ve ktere ma obchodni zastoupeni ceska pobocka firmy Intel. Jsou tu ale jen obchodnici, vlastni firma sidli hodne daleko, a tak i tuto cache najdete uplne jinde (POZOR: zadnou cache na techto souradnicich nenajdete!!).

Firmu Intel zalozili v roce 1968 panove Gordon E. Moore a Robert Noyce. Puvodne se mela jmenovat "Moore Noyce", coz vsak velice pripominalo anglicka slova "more noise" (vice sumu), coz neni pro elektronickou firmu to prave jmeno . Pojmenovali ji tedy NM Electronics a po roce ji prejmenovali na INTegrated ELectronics a zkracene Intel.

Firma Intel se od zacatku zabyvala navrhem a vyrobou RAM pameti a microprocesoru, v roce 1971 uvedla prvni samostatny mikroprocesor na jedinem chipu - 4004. Firma stala u vzniku prvnich mikropocitacu a s nastupem IBM PC kompatibilnich pocitacu se stala svetovou jednickou ve vyrobe procesoru - byly to postupne 8080, 8086, 80286, 80386, 80486 a Pentium.

Strojovym instrukcim techto procesoru odpovida programovaci jazyk Assembler - a tento jazyk (ve verzi pro 8086) byl take pouzit k zakodovani skutecne polohy kese Computer Cache #3. Jeji souradnice Vam prozradi nasledujici kod:

mov         word ptr [bp-2],3323h
        mov         word ptr [bp-4],4343h
        mov         ax,word ptr [bp-2]
        add         ax,213h
        mov         word ptr [bp-6],ax
        mov         bx,word ptr [bp-4]
        sub         bx,0C15h
        mov         word ptr [bp-8],bx
        mov         cx,word ptr [bp-6]
        xor         cx,505h
        mov         word ptr [bp-0Ah],cx
        mov         dx,word ptr [bp-8]
        not         dx
        add         dx,5763h
        mov         word ptr [bp-0Ch],dx
        mov         ax,word ptr [bp-0Ah]
        shl         ax,1
        sub         ax,2F36h
        mov         word ptr [bp-0Eh],ax
        mov         bx,word ptr [bp-0Ch]
        shr         bx,1
        xor         bx,553Ah
        mov         word ptr [bp-10h],bx
        mov         cx,word ptr [bp-0Eh]
        or          cx,1234h
        add         cx,4
        mov         word ptr [bp-12h],cx
        mov         dx,word ptr [bp-10h]
        and         dx,4321h
        sub         dx,0AF2h
        mov         word ptr [bp-14h],dx
        mov         ax,word ptr [bp-12h]
        neg         ax
        xor         ax,0F9F8h
        mov         word ptr [bp-16h],ax
        mov         bx,word ptr [bp-14h]
        inc         bx
        add         bx,0EA01h
        mov         word ptr [bp-18h],bx
        mov         cx,word ptr [bp-16h]
        dec         cx
        sub         cx,0FFE1h
        mov         word ptr [bp-1Ah],cx

The above coordinates will bring you to a large building where the czech subsidiary of Intel corporation is located. The company itself is based far far away however, and so is the cache itself (ATTENTION: There is no cache here!!).

Intel was founded in 1968 by Gordon E. Moore and Robert Noyce. They wanted to name the company "Moore Noyce". This name sounded as "more noise" however and such name is not very suitable for electronics company . So they used the name NM Electronics and after one year they renamed it to INTegrated ELectronics or Intel for short.

Intel produced the RAM memory and processors since the beginning, they introduced the first single chip microprocessor 4004 back in 1971. Intel's processors were behind the first microcomputers and with the great success of IBM compatible personal computers it became a world leader on this field - their key products were the processors 8080, 8086, 80286, 80386, 80486 and Pentium.

Machine instructions are represented by Assembler - and this programming language (version for 8086) is used to code the real coordinates of Computer Cache #3. Just take a look at the lines above!

Good luck again!
