Built a test circuit, but I'm limited in what I can test. The UP5k is 3.3v logic and I don't have logic level shifters, so I can't safely read from the 6551.
Working with the MAX232E today. One of the next things I want to implement on my 6502-based computer is a serial port. This would let me update its program from my desktop computer.
The desktop's serial port will use ~12V logic signals. Since I'm working with TTL/CMOS, I'll use the MAX232E to convert between 12V/5V.
Threw a mess on the floor to take the photo. Hardware work happens on the left, software on the right. #ShowYourWorkspace
I took a bit of pride in my home network this morning. Got all that cable slack off the floor and each one bundled before it reaches the (newly installed) patch panel. I'd like to neaten up the device CAT5 routing too, but I only have a handful of devices, so it's not critical. It would be fun to build a rack one day, but I'm not sure if I'll ever use devices to need one.
Things I have to do before v0.1.0 (alpha) release:
* Finish cleaning code
* Clean up the search UI, text file UI ,and file browser UI
* Add help page
* Add the already implemented downloader to other filetypes (including being a catchall)
* Update README
* Implement horizontal scrolling for very long lines in MenuMode
See the v0.1.0 milestone: https://github.com/hyperreal-gopher/hopher/milestone/1
Setup is complete. Federation/certs took some time, but nothing too difficult. Looking forward to convincing family and friends to join me on my Matrix instance.
Any matrix-synapse admins on the fediverse? I'd be interested to know what kind of issues I might face over time.
Bought a $35 dishwasher on craiglist last week. Routed the plumbing and installed it today. Seems to work fine so far, albeit with a small leak in the front. Will try to find a new door seal for it tomorrow. Washing dishes by hand was getting tiresome, so I'm looking forward to seeing how it is to have a few minutes back each night.
