A couple of hours ago I found myself, together with a couple of friends, locked in a small vault in a basement of an old tenement house in Wrocław/Poland. Objective: escape the room in 60 minutes (+ complete a side quest). To do this we had to look for clues, solve riddles, break codes (not unlike some crypto challenges I've seen on CTFs, though much simpler) and do quite a lot of creative thinking. In the end we failed (we were so close it's painful!). But we had A LOT of fun on the way anyway :). This kind of game is called "Live Escape Room" and the one we went to, which I strongly recommend, was the room "Vault" by Piwnica Quest.
Wracając do tematu książki i tłumaczenia angielskich technicznych terminów na język polski, zebrała mi się kolejna seria słówek, z których tłumaczeniem mam pewien problem. Co więcej, na co dzień często używa się angielskich wersji tych słów, co nie ułatwia sprawy. Stąd też chętnie przedyskutuje z Wami (czytelnikami mojego bloga) potencjalne tłumaczenia słów. Chętnie też zapoznam się z alternatywnymi tłumaczeniami.

asmloader - this little app executes headerless machine code (compiled assembly code). It's meant to be an aid in learning/teaching and playing with assembly, as well as the right tool when you just need to execute some machine code.
