And "democracy" is just means to accomplish complete "dictatorship". As 99% of the population, don't understand each move in the great game. We just believe the empty promises, and suffer the consequences.
We already produce enough food - in fact much more than enough! So it´s not the production chain but the circulation chain.calimero wrote: I am pretty sure that we can produce enough food for entire planet with fraction of today energy cost ONLY if we would optimize entire production chain.
Exactly. And it is also not really allowed to use Ataris. And in no case to use computers for two decades. I read yesterday that they expect to sell 2,4 Billion computer devices in 2013 (including smartphones). WTF every 3 years one computer for every individual at this planet, ...calimero wrote: but problem is system itself: it was never meant to allow such things - if this would happen, today system would collapse/transform!
But all this led to the awareness that we are going to order a new series of mini cases, to have all the colours again available. No sooner said than done! A new batch of cases will be soon available - very likely by the end of the first quater - in the already well known 4 colours, as well as in the 4 Blue/Black or Magenta/Black combinations. Two small optimizations of the case were developed as well. In Vienna we designed a small fitting panel for future SATA converters, which can be fastened with a single screw inside the upper part of the case. Also, we have built a small clip with which the Speaker can simply be suspended. The clip will soon be produced with a 3D-printer and will serve as an optional replacement of the internal hotglued speakers for the already delivered mini cases.

Without any updates, we just wonder and sometimes start to doubt.

I am still waiting for both, neither works ... but I dont know if someone is working on it, or if there is a status, or what. Should I grab a byte, and code the PIC code for PS/2 ... but its based of Eiffel, should exist.
We need to know, and stay in line with the updates ... not just wait, and wait and wait, and wonder.
We can help ...
Since you were begging for it

That's actually something I always wanted to try but didn't find enough time yet.
I'm volunteering to help you (as time permits) to get up to speed if you really want to get into business.

Ok, I'm on it ... it'll take me some time to read the source and get into it. After that I'll know, but my first inclination is (squeeze linux's driver there?) of course, that's the first impression without having looked closer into how it would fit, or if it would ...
mfro wrote:As stated above, I plan to create some kind of tutorial for BaS_gcc coding in a separate thread.
If you want to do "something useful" in the meantime (I guess you're eager to start with at least something), I suggest to prepare/make yourself familiar with the development environment necessary for BaS_gcc development:
oehansen wrote:Am already looking at the code, but understand that your document will be needed. I suspect that will show the hierarchy of how the BaS_cc is supposed to initialize and work, on an OS basis. Where the hooks are supposed to be, for example for a "driver" system. How too hook, and register the routines?
