Happy New Year

Regular readers may have noticed that I’ve gone a bit quiet of late. Part of this is down to the new job which has been keeping me busy; it builds on my existing skills of course, but there is plenty to learn too.

But the other reason is a re-awakened interest in the BBC Micro! I had one of these when I was a child, it was my first machine, but even now as a highly experienced adult, it still fascinates, in fact, even more than the first time round. I am intrigued by how much I can do with how little by today’s standards – 32k of memory and a 2Mhz processor. Right now I am playing at running “background” tasks by interrupt handling, e.g. to run 6502 code during the VBI. And with an ethernet interface, the possibilities are endless…

Tho’ of course I have not forgotten about OCI*ML
