Back after holidays. The MDK already traces executed instructions, so version 0.2 is almost ready.

Finally, i unsubscribed from fd: i could not stand Mr. Stanco's authoritarian ticks... i fare them well...

While SICP arrives, I've been reading "The Little Schemer"... sort of funny, but not the kind of book i'd recommend (if they'd only remove all those elephants that make you feel like a baby learning to speak...). I've rewritten some functions in Scheme for translating between decimal numbers and MIX words, so that they're now tail-recursive (i've realized that, one year ago, when i first read about scheme and wrote the first version of those functions, i had not the slightest idea about what functional programming is!... well, i think i'm improving: maybe the elephants' book is not that bad after all). All in all, i'm enjoying scheme: i'll keep on learning, and i'll think about some useful application.

Have a happy new year/century/millenium!!
