Z80 and 6502 Assembler

Indeed. My first (real) computers were a Nascom 1 followed by a BBC Micro.

I did write a bit of X86 assembler during my (short) programmer phase even though I was (nominally) a mainframe programmer. But it was more fun to write an assembler utility that went round the (token-ring) LAN looking for OS/2 print servers and then enumerating all the stuff people had statched on the file shares on the server.

It was *fairly* network intensive, which is why I only ran it on the evening. Found some fairy 'interesting' stuff as well as quite an amount of warez.

This was sometime in the early 90's. When I was young and foolish.
