Interesting times, it's been a little more then a year since I was laid off when DevelopOnline went bankrupt. Since then I've been contracting in the embedded space. Some Linux, some 8 bit CPU stuff.

The 8 bit stuff has been with the Rabbit Semiconductor 3000 Rabbit core processor. It's a Z80 on steroids. six serial ports, one Ethernet port, lots of parallel I/O, 512K RAM and 512K Flash onboard. Fun little system. Even has an MMU onboard. But since it's only an 8 bit system no Linux for it. Still lots of fun.

It is always interesting to see where life leads you. In this case back to my roots from the 1980's.
