Apollo Guidance Computer

On a slight tangent from this topic, the source code for the Apollo computer has been uploaded to Github.

Comments include:

# "IT WILL BE PROVED TO THY FACE THAT THOU HAST MEN ABOUT THEE THAT

# USUALLY TALK OF A NOUN AND A VERB, AND SUCH ABOMINABLE WORDS AS NO

# CHRISTIAN EAR CAN ENDURE TO HEAR."

The Apollo display and keyboard used two digit verb and noun codes for user input.
