Waiting Again

Back to the waiting once again. I hate this part.

There was a week or two there where I managed to distract myself with some photography fun, had a nice daytrip and that sort of thing.

But now it’s just back to waiting, hoping the mailperson brings me some goodies.

I’ve about exhausted all the coding and testing I can do using the partialy-built-out rejected board. I’ve added more modes, more functions and features. But I can’t add or test sensors without building them, and I can’t do that on the reject board – I have to wait for the good board before soldering the expensive bits.

Here is one of my favorite new features – it’s not useful or informative, it does not accomplish anything. It’s just fun to look at. That’s right, it’s Conway’s Game of Life running on the ISEB-6 Mk II.

Hey, with 128kB of flash and 16kB of ram, there’s room for all kinds of crazy stuff in there.
