Recently I’ve noticed a pattern that’s evolving around rapid development. The development process has shifted it’s time consumption from writing the actual code to system setup and configuration.
It’s been a while since I wrote something here and there’s a reason for that. I took some online courses, because … well first of all I love to learn new things and second it was about software/hardware interfacing – a.k.a. the base principles in developing your OS.
Do you know what’s a table, a bitset, the stack, the high and lows. Yes, no, not quite sure … well in any way this post might come in handy. This glossary is aimed at Intel x86 and x86_64 and any consequent solutions built on PC architecture.
It’s been a month – pretty long vacation away from my most beloved hobby, but I’m just a human, I have my needs. I like snowboarding, so I went to Austria and did a proper powder riding. I’m still playing in the band, and I did a few gigs here in Riga. And last but not least – I have a job – and deadlines are killing me. But enough of appologies, here it is…
While writing my OS I’ve had my time playing around the possibilities that open up mixing these two languages together. So I wanted to share my knowledge.
I ain’t dead, I’m still researchin. It’s kind of never ending story, but still I need to mark few things down. Today it’s all about memory layout and storage (hard disk drive).
Either it’s globalization or not, you have to decide it at last. Today I was reading an article on Wikipedia about Game of Thrones. The best TV series ever! I came across one sentence that made me think, well actually I had this thought a long time ago, but I wanted to talk about it in public.
I’m still testing out a few options of cross-compilers. This time I’ve built a MinGW cross-compiler for i786 ELF format binaries. As I’ve been pointed out – MinGW does not have any dependencies on external libraries (like Cygwin) and it does not have problems with DOS paths (like Cygwin, which I could not force to work in Eclipse CDT).
Ok, the resonance over the Internet has died down a bit … I wasn’t expecting it to happen, but shit just happens. 7500 unique visitors on the first day, 32k on the second – not bad Now I need to write few more ideas down (for my self).
