@commo, give us a phat baseline groove when you plug the korg in :)

@ive, boy your tablecloth! screams mediterraneao :lol: those lemon-yellow tints mess with your light-meter. the lady that takes care of my holiday home in spetses brought an exact same one last summer for my coffee-table.

on practising your english, go back to stevenson, did you get “the suicide club” yet? textbooks are fine but nothing like good, meticulous prose.

last thing i got is the nanoputer but haven’t received it yet. computah-kid is working on it; then it comes my way for a realistic test in the wild.

Arrived today at work, although I purchased it last week, a 5ft FireWire cable so I can test out Mac (output) - Fuel (input) video.

I wanted to try VR so badly since the nineties:

So I finally got a used Oculus Rift DK2. It's a great experience!

Picked up a NetBurner Coldfire development kit - 250MHz with 32MB on-board flash memory, 64MB DDR2 RAM, RS-232, Ethernet, and SDHC connections plus GPIO pins. Looking forward to playing around with this :)

Almost fully loaded Octane2 seen in the hinv section. It could have more RAM, but I'm content with 2.5GB.

slurp :D

Indeed :D

do you use gcc-m68k patched for Coldfire? or CodeWarrior?

Actually I'm probably going to use vbcc as it's lightweight, no-nonsense, almost completely C99-compliant, and is supposed to generate quite good code. Though I do need to figure out how to package arbitrary executables created with something other than the NetBurner development kit for transfer to the device (its boot ROM takes an image compressed with an algorithm they don't name as such - I think it might be LZO, based on poking around the executables with the toolkit, but I need to do a little further research.)

Just put in for a nice, recently-serviced SCI Prophet-600 (with flight case.) I owned one of these previously and foolishly traded it away rather than get it properly fixed (those membrane panels are absolute bastards - completely impossible to repair, and difficult and expensive to source replacements for.) I won't be making that mistake again ;)
