"But it taught me two things: to get it right the first time and to learn to run code in my own head. The latter has remained important to this day. I continue to run code in my head when debugging, typically I reach for the brain debugger before gdb or similar. On the KIM-1 there were only the most basic debugging functions and I built a few into the program, but most of the debugging was done by staring at the output (on the hex display), the behaviour (of the steppers) and by running the code through in my head."
