Firstly, I really need to tweak my Mozilla setup, as I do
not like how Advogato looks under XFree86 4.1.0 with the
Windows fonts installed when using Mozilla 0.93. The font is
way too big. In addition the diary boxes on the home page are
no longer all the same size. Oh for more hours in the day.
Trying to get more work done on my instruction scheduler
simulator but lacking the motivation to really get into it.
Trying to page in my Python knowledge, as after using it for
a few days I was away for two weeks, so I need to sort of
relearn it. Anyway, I should try and get the work done, as I
want to submit a paper on the work I'm doing at the moment
2002, should I have enough work done by early October
(the paper deadline is early November).
Spotted a 25yo Glenfarclas for 35 UKP in a shop near here
- very tempting :) Actually, if anyone here knows the answer
to this I'd be grateful: I have a US keyboard, and want to
find a way to map the UK pound sign to a key, such as the
windows key, under X (mainly, though for the console I
woundn't object either). Any suggestions?
At FPL I saw both Xilinx and Altera come up with some
neat looking products. Both are doing processor/FPGA
hybrids, with Xilinx putting 4 PowerPCs into a Virtex device
and Altera putting ARM and MIPS cores (only one core but
what seems to be a better interconnect and some RAM) into an
Apex device. Very Sexy.
