RETRO COMMUNITY, please retweet. If anybody can be in Houston this weekend there's a 'computer museum' that's liquidating everything they have. Almost everything is pre-Y2K including some DEC stuff and what looks like AS/400 equipment. Listing: @Foone

於是這玩意有了 Zero Page 和 Indirect Addressing,還多了一個用來儲存記憶體位址高位的暫存器,並獲得了 16bit 記憶體定址能力。

The simplest circuit board I ever ordered - USB inrush current test board. Only a shunt resistor for current sensing, nothing else.

Q: If I made a stupid mistake and it doesn't work, what should I say?
A: It makes no sense. #electronics

一個奇怪的構想:既然 DRM 廣播可以承載到 24kbps 左右 Bitrate 的 AAC 音訊,那其實也可以塞得下低流量的視訊了吧。

如果搞出來在 DRM 或更窄頻可以在一般 FM Transceiver 的 TX Passband 內(SSB 應該太難了)的視訊模式,業餘電視 (ATV) 也許能更普及?

也許這種東西應該取個名字叫做 (Narrow Band Amateur Television)

I've been scratching my head about how to handle the clipboard in Uxn's text editor a lot, and since there's only 64k of memory, and that the body of the text and the text-editor program share that same space, I couldn't really allow for large clipboards..

So, I figured that I could create an external file and save the clipboard in there, seems to be working well. Interesting challenge nonetheless.
