Codewise I fixed numerous bits in SWARM. Matt, one of my fine office mates, is starting work on an embedded systems project. As part of this he's interested in writing a small RTOS aimed at the ARM, so he's using SWARM as his initial test platform. Over the weekend I added IRQ/FIQ support. All it really needs is some form of timer and it should be enough for a small multitasking OS to run on it.

This is actually of some use to me, as I'll need to use an OS at one point. I'm thinking of using Nemesis as my starting point. Wish me luck :0)

Oh, and I ache today as I fell quite a bit whilst snowboarding yesterday (it was on a dry slope I should point out). Had been doing quite well until yesterday - guess it was overdue pain.
