I had my first dream in lisp last night. I’ve been reading Land Of Lisp (and a couple of other lispy books) and it seems to be sinking in 🙂 The dream involved building physical matter out of lisp data structures. Very odd!
After a couple of false starts with dead voltage regulators, Bob (my daughter named it) the PIC based ethernet device lives in a more permanent incarnation. Bob is made from bits and pieces I had around the place (I now have several very dead network hubs). The budget for the project was zero 😉 My […]
I’ve been really busy recently and have not had much time to work on my side projects. One that I’ve been working on off and on for some time is a networked PIC micro-controller. This morning I finally got it responding to ICMP echo request (ping) 🙂 The next thing I need to do is […]

I’ve not had much time recently to work on the decompression routines as family and work need to take priority over side projects… Last night I picked the code up again and had a bit more of a look. I found a couple of mistakes in the code I’d written and am now getting a […]
Get it while it’s hot!
After what seems like ages I have finally released BlogThing 2.0. This new release is totally rewritten from scratch and provides some very nice new features. The coolest one is the new video upload facility. Just add a video file to the page and press the Post button. BlogThing will encode the file and upload […]
The other day I received an email from Staffan Sevon containing some new graphics for the display of the application. These look so much nicer. Thanks Staffan!
I had a bit more of a play with the emulator code tonight and fixed up a few little glitches. I also changed the color of the emulation screen to look more like the real thing 🙂 Now off to bed! It also looks like it is OK to distribute the ROM file as apparently […]
I have just released the source to a HP48GX emulator for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It’s a very rough port of x48 to the iPhone, but it works 🙂 There is the occasional screen glitch and I’m not too happy with the screen buffer code. Something else that is a bit annoying is that it appears that compiling in Debug mode to run on the device does not work. It looks like one of the case statements in the x48 emulation code is too big to be compiled for ARM under gcc. I had a quick look at using the LLVM compiler but it didn’t seem to like it. The code can be downloaded from http://github.com/dparnell/i48/tree/master […]
