Indeed.  PDP-8 and PDP-11 assembly are the only assembly languages I've
ever used, and I liked both of them a lot.

One time I called in to the central system and started working on a big
thick 'sed' and 'awk' heavy duty data bashing script.  One of the geologists
came by, looked over my shoulder and said 'Oh, that happens to me too.
Try hanging up and phoning in again.'  --Beverly Erlebacher
