Check out this video on what and why.
See quaternions, and also octonions then sedenions.
Fraudulent data never contains enough samples that start with the number one!
How a CPU Works is a fun watch for just about anybody.
Thank you Theri DeJoode and @groomformen for a delightful Thursday.
It was fun and you did wonderful work.
If you utilize
use-package to install
smartparens and require
smartparens-config then do it like this:
(use-package smartparens-config :ensure smartparens)
This week I migrated to use-package and configured it incorrectly with something like this:
(use-package smartparens :ensure t :config (require 'smartparens-config))
Big giveaway: single-quote and backtick don’t work correctly in strict mode! There are a lot of explanations of how to “fix this issue”. It isn’t an issue with smartparens. This is how I got it wrong; very easy mistake to make.
The desire to build my own personal computer has been growing. My requirements are non-existent. That has never stopped anyone before, right? Not going down to the silicon, it seemed the making it inexpensive and FORTH driven would be the best approach. Using nothing more than a television and a keyboard also seemed like a great idea. Everything else would be a distraction. Anything costing much would be a barrier. Tonight I came upon the FIGnition FUZE. This is my and surely your FORTH on a TV dream machine!
FIGnition FUZE is the definitive £20 educational DIY computer! It works like an 8-bit home Micro: outputting to composite video and ready to be interactively programmed from the moment you switch it on. FUZE now has bitmapped graphics; sprites, sound and audio saving/loading as well as 8Kb of RAM; 384Kb of storage; an 8-key keypad and runs a variant of FIG-Forth. It uses USB for power; firmware upgrades and program downloads.
Just read “What Can It Do?” and you will be drooling. Faster than every 80s box ever? Yes. External flash appears as re-usable disk? Yes. Graphics? Yes. Audio system for loading/saving data? Yes. The list goes on.
This is the vintage FORTH box that you have wanted to build all these years even though you didn’t know it!
VIM is a perfect configuration of EMACS that has replaced Elisp with Vimscript and heavily utilizes transient keymaps and/or Hydras.
How much would it cost to build a personal computer using a TI Launchpad and eForth?
It would need to output over HDMI and accept a USB keyboard. FAT32 for storage would make it easier to manage, too.
It is not this simple.
