Finished soldering a core store kit. Weaving thin magnet wire through tiny ferrite toroids took forever. But now I can store 4 whole bytes with this modern reproduction of 50s memory technology! https://www.tindie.com/products/kilpelaj/core-memory-shield-for-arduino/
I’m making a command line todo list using this Ink thing which lets you write CLI apps using React but instead of rendering to the DOM it renders to text. It’s actually incredibly nice https://github.com/vadimdemedes/ink
Even better news, #bbcbasic is now free and open source:
"BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 (BBCSDL) is an advanced cross-platform implementation of BBC BASIC for Windows, Linux (x86 CPU only), Mac OS-X, #RaspberryPi (Raspbian), Android and iOS."
@technomancy It’s done! Obviously inspired by your wonderful Atreus which has been my daily driver for years (I have a v2 coming too). Tweaks include straight bottom stagger, no bezel, and Bluetooth. Would you be ok with me calling it AtreusV to make the lineage clear? V is for the bottom shape.
