I don't use LSD (or other illegal drugs), but if I did, I wouldn't have had to buy any today after reading this 😛 An article on the general purpose CPU that never was, the 8271 floppy disc controller. Yet more on Intel's curious history of missed opportunity and discarded crown jewels. You couldn't make it up 🙂 A fascinating read 😃

That was indeed interesting! Though I didn't fully understand most of it, I gleaned enough from context to get the general ideas. Thanks for sharing.
