Think I've got the fundamentals from reading various tutorials on the net, and playing with the inline assembler built into Blitz Basic. It's astonishing how things in other languages (C, C++, Java, etc) make more sense when you've spent some time looking into it. Even some of the limitations of Speccy Basic make sense now. It's even more astonishing that so few assembly books/university courses exist these days. Just a few days of research has led me to the conclusion that you can't possibly be a really good programmer unless you know asm.

Why didn't I learnt this years ago?

Anyhoo, the eventual plan (once I've really got to grips with asm) is to switch to developing Mega Drive/Genesis games, and put my shiny new flash cartridge to good use.
