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

I use CE with the GCC 6502... sadly op-code highlighting still hasn't been fully implemented. A simple oversight I am sure...

I'm going to plonk this down here because I think it's relevant to Beeb owners in what also been a great year for gaming for them. Stunt Car Racer surprised everyone. And now it's the CPC's turn with a port of Pinball Dreams. Batman Group have leveraged the same CRTC chip the Beeb has to do something astonishing. 50fps scrolling and sprites on a machine with no official hardware to do such a thing.

Whatever the secrets are, if they are indeed CRTC related I hope they can be shared with the Beeb guys so they can leverage this amazing tech.

And I can't stress this enough. You can look at the video but you have to PLAY it to get the full experience. I've been going back and forth between the CPC and Amiga versions. They "feel" the same. That's quite an achievement.

Good. Watched while washing up and emptying the dish washer. Matt’s talk are usually interesting even when I don’t understand them. Well I understood the middle bit about clouds as that is my day job, but all that C stuff ......

So the historical record doesn't become even more muddled, can I confirm that I wasn't one of the representatives from the BBC who visited Acorn for that original demo (the famous 'wire cutting' scene), despite what all three guests seemed to think at around 53:30 into the video. I believe they were in fact John Radcliffe (Executive Producer, Continuing Education) and David Kitson (Head of Studio Group, Engineering Designs Department, and my boss's boss at the time).

I think it was Chris that floated your name, I am not sure there was a huge consensus though. I think you are safe. Maybe.

Plus half the time the three of them had conflicting memories of things any way. And can’t say I blame them, I wouldn’t remember work events from 5 years ago let alone 30-40 years ago.

The only other name they came up with was David Allen, but they (rightly, I think) concluded that he would have been unlikely to attend such a 'technical' meeting.

Not beeb/6502 based and probably not of wide interest, bu I find it interesting.
