The most beautiful bug I encountered this year

From 33C3_Public_Wiki

Description I wrote a driver and UDP/IP stack for a Commodore 64 network card called RR-net MK3. During this I encountered a bug that took me more than two months to hunt down. Once I found out, what was going wrong I could find some beauty in it, because it was a special combination of the hardware of the network card, the software and the way the processor of the C64 behaves. This beauty I want to share in this talk. If I can inspire one person in the audience to think more outside the box during hunting a bug, my job is done.
