Indeed, but he was a freak of nature.. :) (and his code looked like a bucket of skinned wombats tossed down the side of a mountain)

In reality, there are a lot of situations where being able to toss some assembly together is vital.. Consoles would be one thing, and I personally use it in luaray, but as previously stated, "normal" assembly has little payoff, nowadays it's almost entirely simd.

You know what they say... "Programs must be written for people to
read, and only incidentally for machines to execute." That's how I'd
define a good programmer. Knowing assembly is a good servant, but a
bad master, in this context.
