Just in case you’re wondering, this diary tracks development work I’m doing at the moment. Right now, I’m doing work on TinyOS and NesC for the NMRC as part of my six-month internship for my degree.
I’m just after getting PWS, OpenWiki, Tcl, and MiKTeX set up on the Ambient Lab’s one and only Win98 box after a huge amount of trouble. Administrators suck.
The next bit of work I’m going to be doing on ncc will be to try to get it to run natively on Windows. There are good reasons (the engineers here find Cygwin a bit scary) and bad (the administrators) for doing the port. I’m building it using MinGW and creating a library to encapsulate the things ncc requires that Cygwin has and MinGW doesn’t. For a start, nesc-cpp.c needs a fair bit of work to get rid of the *nixisms within and that’s where I’m starting.
Those in the NMRC Ambient Systems group who might be reading this can find the wiki I set up at http://mailab-pc/wiki/.
