If you stick with solely creating GPU code, generating your own bootcode.bin, you won't have to worry about anything else.
Christina has done a VPU bootThere is VPU ( scalar/vector processor ) documentation out there. It may be 'reverse engineered' rather than official but can be used and does work.
Yes it is common in Github which is interesting, because Github is a version control system patterned after filesystem architecture since it works with existing filesystems, which already by nature follows a tree structure inherently. The thing about filesystem structures from what I've seen though, is that they're inefficient from what I gather because of accessing sectors/heads/cylinders on disks, which causes filesystems like FAT32 to allocate more space than is needed in a file.Gavinmc42 wrote: ↑Mon May 07, 2018 8:06 amThat Eden stuff could be done in the VC4 but hard to do without the Linux C based GL/ES libs.
Baremetal with Ultibo's method is the smallest I know how to use
Trees/Trunks/Branches etc, all common in github
We will get a $35 Pi with more speed etc, it will just take time and cheaper DRAM
Low cost displays is something that needs work, but RPF does leave lots of opportunities for third parties.
God is the Creator, man is made in his image, therefore we are all Creators.
Greeks said the muses provided inspiration.
If you fill your head with knowledge perhaps a stray cosmic ray simulates a neural cascade that leads to inspiration.
I am not sure how inspiration happens, I just know it does work.
It usually works better sitting on a mountain top away from nagging wife and screaming kids
If you think about it, a mountain top is closer to space and there is less atmosphere to absorb those cosmic rays.
Astronauts report seeing the cosmic ray flash in their eyes, perhaps that is where the term "flash of inspiration" comes from?
If AI robots are made from radiation resistant CPU's, will they never get inspired?
Will space robots be more creative than earth bots?
How does an OS compensate for this randomness, use it or error check it?
Use two identical CPU's, one radiation hardened and design an OS that checks for this effect.
That is an OS experiment in scientific terms
Are Quantum CPU's less resistant to these rays?
I know of this "zone" you speak of, whenever I get in the zone while coding here I can be perfectly calm in the coding zone and people will become more aggressive around me, it's strange, I've observed this phenomenon multiple times. I got a headache yesterday while in the zone, had to break away and go to the gym room and do some cardio, headache starts to dissipate shortly after running. My environment here is not as conducive to coding as I imagine it is there. Most in the US aren't coders, only about 0.359% or so I read somewhere, finding coders here is like finding a needle in a haystack. We have news here that California is trying to secede, there's a fake news problem, all sorts of drama going on. How is it over there in your area Gavin?Gavinmc42 wrote: ↑Fri May 11, 2018 2:44 amI noticed something while waiting in the Dentist.
Take a look around next time you are in a public place.
What percentage of people have their heads buried in their Smartphones?
Social Animal human are now solitary digital humans?
Or are we now finding it easier to find like minded individuals to hang out with online?
Online friends are replacing local ones?
I think we are much closer to becoming Cyborgs than having Robot GP AIs running around to worry about.
Think about what OS's we want running on embedded/wearable cpu's.
Silicon assisted Carbon based life forms?
Has Siri//Google become kids best friends?
Think about the digital divide, those that have Internet and those without or those with Smartphone/ those without.
Visit second/third world counties, you drive past palm leave shacks at night and see the flicker of the TV's.
This was a one way direction of passing of information.
That is rapidly changing as Smartphones become the new 2 way interface to the World.
What happens when Rachael, Khan Academy, Wikipedia etc come preloaded on these phones?
If you have an OS that runs in your body do you really want Google (or whoever) to have access to it?
Software for your pacemaker, autonomous Car etc these are the current debates happening right now.
Some people may argue they need the VC4 RTOS to be open source.
Compared to Android or IOS, we have it pretty good.
And Pi can plug into those TV so more than one person can watch at a time.
Pi's can use what ever you tell them too and are unbrickable if you don't mess too much with the OTP boot options.
Changing the config.txt and your kernel name can be changed to seed.img.
That is how the bootcode.bin/start.elf can tell which ARMv6 or ARMv7 or ARMv8 kernel to use.
Hopefully there is no Zero days exploits in the BCM boot ROM
Maslow's Self Actualization is just a longer version of the USA's "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness".
"Pursuit of Happiness" is an interesting choice of words, Happiness is like nailing jelly to a wall, it is slippery.
Being happy is moments of zero time, you lose it if you think about it, that moment has passed.
It is like being creative, after you have created something that moment has passed too and is now history.
When I am coding like mad, my fellow workers say I am "in the zone", I leave the "zone" once I stop.
No time has passed in the zone, minute or hours can pass unnoticed.
The same thing happens when meditating or praying.
But if you spend your time worried about your next meal or where to live or paying bills etc those moment are hard to find.
Every religion has a word/term for "Enlightenment".
You become Self Actualized once you consciously realize happiness is a state of mind and not condition.
Digital Sapiens are the new norm?
Those old Sapiens are so last Century?
