I gave the Octal project page at GNU a little bit of a makeover and added a new link or two.

Have no idea what I'm doing about the show coming up... I presume I will be ready in time. :-) I have several weeks, so I am not that stressed. There is some kind of web-ad at c-fom's page. Nice, top billing :-) even if it is alphabetical...

We had our first meeting about the Mobile Robotics senior independent study. Went very well, I'm even considering writing a kind of flow-network editor for doing subsumption architectures on the handyboard. The UI certainly wouldn't be very hard--I just did something MORE complex and it was not difficult. The only tricky part would be converting the flow networks into inputs for some kind of C code. I think this would be hard, because by default this thing runs a weird dialect of C where pointers and arrays aren't interchangeable and I don't think it even has function pointers. In other words, it is basically Pascal77. Sucks.

There is a GCC port to the Motorola 6811 and people do compiled programs for it, so perhaps I will check this out.

I'm listening to an excerpt from the live show in NYC jan 2000. Wow... has it really been a year since then? :-)
