Re: BeebEm Mac - Info

I stay in Bulgaria (the home of Viruses, Trojans and all sorts of other internet "evils"), and have been running a load of G5 iMacs running 10.4 and 10.5, Intel iMacs running 106 and 10.7, an ancient Mac Mini running 10.4 and so forth for about 12 years now: all connected to the internet, and never...

Apple telling me to buy a new 2. If the blatant commercial push of Microsoft and Apple get too much it is probably time to consider Linux.

Re: HostFS+TCPIP

Okay I guess you can put me down for a test/early adopter board. Maybe with the possibility of a larger audience, it might gee me up to looking at my Telnet program again. Although I wrote it in BASIC, hence huge and slow, maybe I need to write it in ASM. Or C and cross compile.

Re: HostFS+TCPIP

LwIP is the tcp/ip stack on sprow master Ethernet card. The rom would be the acorn interface to the card. So you won’t be using LwIP I expect but your own tcp/ip stack. But the rom might make more sense cross referenced to the stack that was used. Telnet was never finished, debugging was a pain due ...

Matt Godbolt's talk at CppCon 2019 about Compiler Explorer is quite interesting if the internals/behind the scenes of compilers & Compiler Explorer appeal.
