All this intercontinental moving has forced me to cut my library down a couple of times. This is currently the whole thing.

The next dot-com bubble? 

I just saw the Radio Shack cryptocurrency thing*, and I suddenly had a flashback to the dot com bubble. I worked through that period, but I didn't help build it. I've always worked on building physical products that have to be manufactured and shipped to people. Anyway, I'm beginning to feel like there's a new bubble/scam forming, and once again I will be outside of it. Probably affected in some way, but not willingly participating in it.

A small pheasant (the other guests were larger) ducked a branch and pecked a rowan.

Clever bird: there's no way it can stand on the rib of that fence without a branch.

GW1NSR-4C Blinky, ladies and gentlemen!

This is a new board supported by !

Yes, that's my bit!
Fuzzer working cell by cell simply could not detect such a thing, only a long contemplation of letters and numbers could.

Just kidding.
Now I need to generate new bases and do a bit by bit comparison. This is going to be a long time.

I have a hunch that this lousy bit that keeps me from posting a new version of the IO subsystem encoding will clear up today😜

I've just completed a brief high-level architecture description of the machine language monitor. And, as I'm building it, I've come to realize that I'm using the 65816's BRK instruction in a manner not unlike the Start Interpretive Execution (SIE) instruction found on IBM mainframes. This is the instruction that mainframes depend upon heavily to implement virtual machines efficiently.

I think this is kind of cool, actually. Convergent evolution in action!

The daily routine of a programmer.
The task: to teach the nightingale to sing.

Test runs take 6-8 hours, I'm already thinking about replacing Ryzen3400 with a faster modification, or adding 8G to the last free slot.

In any case tests (~20000 runs) found fluctuations in one single bit. As soon as I see what's wrong, I can check it on the hardware and post it.

The decoding of the DRIVE attribute has been tested for boards GW1N-1, GW1NS-2 and GW1N-9. This required between 530 and 2600 test compilations.

There is one more board left, GW1N-4, with which I have a complicated relationship:)
After that, I will state partial success and move on to the next attribute.

What doesn't kill us mutates and tries again😜

Comparison of 2960 binary images generated by the vendor tool and .

My cheap bluetooth headphones like to save energy on pauses, which turns listening to audiobooks (not all) into a test of nerves:)
A quick search for a way to add background noise to keep them awake with ffmpeg yielded no results: you can add sound to video, you can add video to sound, you can delete sound, you can delete video.
I'll look for more later, but for now there are other things to do.
