I'm happy, Thatcher is dead.

Some stuff

The best program is the one you write.

Sep 05, 2014: some documentation to boot a debian system on an old 486, because oh my god! that was such a pain in the brain!

Jun 01, 2014: a patch for some obscure ROM from an obscure mostly unexisting old computer that gives weird results in an emulator of the thing. You may keep breathing. (Keywords: commodore v364, speech module, VICE emulator, xplus4, spk3cc4.bin.)

May 31, 2014: this is a little hack to plot binary tree on your screen. I wanted to analyze that crazy compression routine in spk3cc4.bin and needed a little quick tool to plot a binary tree. It took longer to write than I thought (let's say five hours instead of one expected)... Finally I found out that the tables in spk3cc4.bin are stored as what is called "canonical huffman code". It was a nice journey in some old 8 bits code. And now I know how to deal with that funny data structure. Binary trees won't cease to be amazing little creatures.

May 28, 2014: say364.c is a little hack to speak like a commodore v364. Why? Why not! I saw a video on the internet of that v364 thing speak and it reminded me of my youth and the Dictée Magique (Speak and Spell) which has a very similar voice. Let's call it nostalgia.

May 16, 2014: I wrote a little hack to serve a git repository stored in one data file via php (because for f-droid I must have a git repository but I don't want to put zillions of files and directories on this server). Hopefully that works...
