Back in October I gave a presentation to Fastmail’s engineering team about GOOD COMPUTER. Now you can see it too!

2020-08-17 21:16 hey look, it’s GOOD COMPUTER mk2. totally rebuilt with an atmega88 after a minor voltage incident took out my remaining 8s.
2020-07-27 21:06 lol so I fucked up while getting the XIAO toolchain running and trashed the bootloader. so a new GOOD COMPUTER project begins: just enough JTAG/SWD to reflash the bootloader and make it usable again
2020-07-24 20:56 this is a XIAO, a tiny ARM dev board. gonna do another round of GOOD COMPUTER type work on it.
2020-07-12 13:29 started messing with this SD card module. seems it’s not properly SPI compliant, as it’s driving CIPO low even when not selected.

2020-07-06 19:44 I had an idea 2020-07-06 23:31 not a real clock, just text layout tests I have several ideas
2020-07-05 17:30 I used a pair of ‘595 shift registers to hook this up to the SPI bus. it works fine, but needs constantly refreshed and on the bus permanently.
2020-07-02 12:30 I decided to take a short break and add a LCD screen to GOOD COMPUTER, but it ended up taking a very late night and a morning to get it going.
2020-06-22 15:09 GOOD COMPUTER continues! I got bored with BASIC, and I’m waiting for parts to arrive, so I started something new: a Z-machine implementation, in AVR assembly, so we can play Zork!
2020-06-02 12:35 I am making a GOOD COMPUTER, my take on a 70/80s-style approach to building a computer! Current focus: the BASIC interpreter
2020-04-28 20:19 I started building a little computer this week. The idea/constraint is: what if we built a late-70s-early-80s-style 8-bit computer in 2020
