I finished the SHA-256 project so much faster than I thought that I’m now sitting here wondering what to tackle next. It’s a strange problem to have.
Some things I’m excited about right now:
- Learning FPGAs
- Warmer weather so I can get back to building my Zenith
- Helping people make better personal security decisions
- My Ultimate 64 has been shipped (It’s on a slow boat from Europe)
- Maybe getting into working on the Mega65? I dunno, I’m on the fence about that
- Section hiking the Appalachian Trail again
- Designing avionics?
- Moving ALL of my important work off of proprietary formats. ALL. OF. IT. (I’m looking at you Evernote)
My original goal was to have this working at all by March 31. When I started, it seemed daunting enough that I gave myself more than 6 weeks to get it done. It took 6 days.
At my lunchbreak I had it working as a script
And after work I refined it to take user input.
My goal here was to learn it, not make a downloadable program for actual use. Something like CRC or MD5 works much better on a 6510 processor, this it much to slow to be useful.
But step 1 is apparently figuring out a usable keyboard in the emulator. This feels like working on XF86Config files in 1997, which was sorta fun back then I guess…
