I'm excitedly working-up an answer to this question: Emulate an Intel 8086 CPU . But even though there are several answers, there's no smorgasboard of goodies to steal from like many other older questions.

Should I (May I) prod the answerers to cough up the code?

And, Is there a maximum length for code blocks in answers? Would I be asking the impossible for some?

    \$\begingroup\$ In the same way that Stack Exchange has a partnership with imgur to host all the images (click the Image toolbar icon and upload a picture---you'll know what I mean), I think Stack Exchange should have a partnership with GitHub to have a Gist-like thing for posting piles of code. It would be useful for the Code Review site, and maybe Stack Overflow and this site. \$\endgroup\$ – Chris Jester-Young Nov 22 '12 at 23:09

The maximum length was recently increased. It's now 65536 characters, which should be long enough to post quite a substantial amount of code.

The is a maximum length limit for posts (questions and answers). I believe that it is around 32k characters. That necessarily imposes a a upper limit on how much code you can post, though I find that I am able to write some quite extensive things inside that limit.
