Pinned toot

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

-- Emma Lazarus

I don't have much to say yet other than...

Fuck the fucking Nazis and those who enable them.

You could maybe add in stonepunk as a way to give commentary on what the world could have been like without the power structures which eventually led to imperialism and consequently capitalism. That's the most interesting way to do stonepunk, in my opinion.

Steampunk without commentary on the exploitative machinations of imperialism is not steampunk.

Cyberpunk without commentary on capitalism's efforts to buy the world out from under us is not cyberpunk.

Solarpunk without commentary on how to grow a brighter future for everyone instead of submitting to gloom is not solarpunk.

These three make a trifecta of how capitalism took over, what can happen if it continues, and how to prevent it from doing so. What was, is, and still could be.

@mntmn I'm not sure what your requirements are, but I've been wondering whether an Arm emulator might have the features you're looking for that could potentially be separated from the emulator.

I also found this post on RISC OS open forum that RISC OS has a Debugger tool that could perhaps be the start of a machine code monitor:

riscosopen.org/forum/forums/11

Reminds me of debug tool back in the DOS days. Although, that actually could do assembly.

Just got back to the fediverse and the first thing I stumble upon is some anti-FOSS pseudo-anarchist USians being actively ignorant and passive aggressive.

What has that country done to you?

Programmed the TinyFPGA BX part for the first time (with the stock #nMigen "blinky" demo). So, I know the hardware and programmer toolchain works. #fpga #vdc2 #vdcII

I also completed soldering the header pins for the level shifters and the TinyFPGA BX board. Except for physically soldering the data bus and address line A0, I think all that needs to be done now is wire everything up in the solderless breadboard.

I saw this on Facebook and I'm still trying to figure out if it runs Solaris or Irix.

It works!!! Bootstrapping a processor instruction set, architecture and dev platform from scratch is probably one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.

VM with 32MB of main memory, N cores with 128KB is running compiled uCISC code that paints 64x48 image on 640x480 “display”. Real working code. Eventually targeting a ECP5 FPGA to get real hardware running this. Just have to finish bootstrapping enough of an OS to get the basic I/O essentials. FYI @akkartik

@h boosted

@akkartik still the ruby VM at this point, but simulates most of the aspects of the hardware architecture. Verilog is next.
