GLE-MiPS - reaching beta!

hi all!
I'm pleased to announce that the project has reached the BETA status!
It should work as the blueprints says, but i need to thoroghly test it!

if you want to check it out it's here.

the good news now is that there are many fellow students who like this project and are quite willing to help!
Moreover we're forming a group for building a compiler of an Assembly-like language for this processor! So it appears that the project might be something successful in the end...

let's hope so

Second Project: GLE-MiPS

Well, it's time to start another project, this time a little more serious!

we have to design a fully working MIPS-like processor!
After weeks of hard work finally we arrive to a very alpha stage... that means one thing: publishing!!! it's OpenSource obviously!

so i set up a google code account and stasted svnning! if you litterally check out, do
svn checkout gle-mips
if you want to browse the source (and help me find bugs btw :D) you can have a look here!

be careful that this is still very alpha, and not ready for submission anywhere; the single modules work, but the whole processor needs to be tested (heavily tested i might say)

that's all for now!

OpenSSL is hot!

Wow! it appears that my document of some time ago

I might consider reworking on it (as soon as i complete this semester projects)

thanks a lot to whoever viewed and liked this document!

The three betas of my life

ok today i litterally had a cut to some of my lifestyles (namely my hair)
so i took the occasion to go somewhat extreme with the current sowftware i had installed!

by a strange stroke of luck 3 new betas of popular software was released out today

ok the last was hasn't really come out today but as i said i wanted to go a little extreme with new stuff and firefox2 was giving me some headache (dunno why)

the use of the Aqua interface for ooo3 and ff3 is really one big hit and you can actually feel the increased perfomance boost! Unitiy in VMware is still a little buggy but it can work fine and gives hope that linux support will be carried on by the vmware team!

with all these betas installed i feel like living some months forwards :D

All the projects here are under a Creative Commons 3.0 licence! You can use and distribute them as you like (just quote the author so he knows his work is not useless)!
