    What does the "macrumors 6502" under my name mean?

    I see quite a few others with the same, some with 6502a.

    Thanks

    Thanks everyone...I did look in the FAQ but obviously not carefully enough.

    The 6502 was never used in a Mac. The original Mac had a Motorola 68000 CPU.

    The lowly 6502 was used in the Apple I and II and Commodore PET (my first PC).

    When I said "Mac". That is what I was referring to.

    And that is what the naming convention on MacRumors refers to also.

    It means you come on here far too often. Switch off your computer and go outside.

    You're beyond hope.

    All you can do now is stay hydrated and make sure your eyes get 10-15 minutes of daylight each day.

    And after that, you will walk away slowly, with single returns. Or stay away a week and eat all the spinach left and then return under a new pseudonym and amass 1.5 times more posts.

    Shouldn't this be reversed? A 6502 should be sign of wisdom and seniority (I had an Apple II many, many years ago).

    Ahhh... but you see, the 6502 was very very slow.

    So, you may be right!

    This is used to signify your post count and the naming convention itself is derived from processors used in Apple computers over the years.

    If you're serious, you kind of missed all of the preceding posts on this thread. OP has, at this moment, 393 posts.

    If you're not serious, some indication that you are joking (e.g. :rolleyes:, or;), or something of the kind) are useful as it is sometimes hard to tell with written communication.:)
