Had quite a few ask about SHA-256 execution times in 6510/6502 Assembly. I’m seeing about 21 jiffies ($15 hex) on average. So 2.857 hashes per second on an unaccelerated Commodore 64. Not too shabby. Imma be Bitcoin rich!! In 50 trillion years…. #commodore #c64 #Crypto
Ha! Reseated the ROMs and it works. I am basically a wizard.
Getting into the nitty gritty of the crypto series on the Commodore now. I want to demonstrate hash collisions. Only 1Mhz so I’m doing shorter hashes and looking for occurrences of collisions that result in english words.
This TNC for Raspberry Pi just arrived. Plugged it in and not only did it fail to work, it got so hot I couldn’t touch it. Bleh.
Brought it with me today in case there was an opportunity to work on it. Had to take cover during heavy rain, so I was prepared to make use of the time AND I fixed the bug. Woot!
10 minute morning progress before heading out for the day: Tiny bug… this gets all the primes to 2^24 except 3,5,7,11, and 13. And I am really stuck on WHY. Not gonna win any speed records, but it’s good demo code anyway. #commodore #c64 #crypto
I’m actually doing some fishing this weekend, but my other project is to work on the ISS to Commodore config. Step 1 is serial connection to Raspberry Pi which was simple enough #commodore #c64 #Space
Youtube still has me in timeout. Isn’t it lovely when they do that and you really have no idea why?
