I thought my 10 year old son was gonna explode wating for this day. I have been ordering parts and learning to wire LED's and Weld Acrylic and Water Proofing. To him it felt like forever. He took a long time picking out his fish. He is working out a feeding schedual with his Little Sister. 'till she gets her very own. I a hunting down a Mac Plus for her.
So life's kinda hectic lately. I got a job, at the Boardwalk, working weekends for $7.25 an hour. So I get to drive somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 miles a week. Thats insane. Plus, I go to Castroville almost every Saturday, and most Sundays, too. Jeez. I have $20 in the bank. It costs me more than that to fill up my tank. I have half a tank left.
There was an extra Dell at work, so I formatted it and installed Ubuntu Flight 4.
It crusied along nicely, then choked on the kernel. Then it presented me with a choice of 3 kernels, so I chose the bottom one because it had a version number in it.
That seemed to work fine.
I have been working on a website for the last week with a new ISP Server (pweb.info) and also been contributing to the forum http://macforum.pweb.info/. Recently we have had a bot run thru the system and destroy *almost* every site that was on the server. This means that the macforums site AND most of everyone else (including pweb's OWN forums) sites had their PHP MySQL Databases erased.
As of today, I work at the Seaside Company, AKA the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California.
This is my first real job, I'm slightly scared.
Anyway, I'm real excited and I thought I'd share the news.
If any one has some real interest in unusual hardware, I'm willing to act as a purchaser for non-locals from http://www.surplusexchange.org in exchange for a meager sum. I'm not always available to go by during their open hours, but they are open Sat. too, so I can likely make it by at least once a week if someone is looking for something specific.
Today I was there and found:

In my debug of the Verilog 6502, I noticed that the code was not cycle accurate with the NMOS 6502. A lot of common instructions take an extra cycle. The means that most of the time it will be running 25% - 33% slower. For me, that is unacceptable. I have been playing with writing a cycle accurate version. It is doable, but it will take a lot longer.
