ZiLOG Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
Posted by Eric on 7 December 2001, 23:07 GMT

ZiLOG, the esteemed company that brought us the Z80 processor, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. TI's TI-8x line of calculators (except the TI-89), of course, uses a processor based on the ZiLOG Z80 (as well as many other ancient computers such as the ol' TRS-80). More information can be found at the Electronics Times.

I may be paranoid, I may be a psycho, but I am not ... um ... freaking out.

Who's "freeking" out? All I noticed was people wondering if TI will be able to continue producing the TI-8x (excluding the 89) line of calculators.

>>>paranoid psychos.<<<

You mean "paranoid" as in the extreme and irrational fear and distrust of other people, and "psychos" as in crazy or insane?

So the people that were wondering about TI's continued production of calculators with Z80 processors are afflicted by an irratoional distrust of others, and they're insane?

Please explain...

just read a bunch of the comments above. you'll see who's freeking out. paranoya (sp?) is not only distrust of other people.. it's the fear that something is going to happen. psycho is just a word i used to describe people who are freeking out.
