I haven't read the above link yet but I have used PCs since the XT and I
have this to say...

What on earth was IBM thinking when they used a 556 as a poor analogue
to digital converter?!?

IIRC, the early joystick cards comprised solely of 2 74LS series logic
chips and a 556 (dual 555) chip.

It was horrible. 'Nuff said.
