just wanted to say "Hi" and tell everyone who cares that I'm still alive and sometimes bragging about how cool a forum I know about AVR and all that embedded stuff^^
I'm working on my final University project nowadays which will be a pretty cool C++ programm. Righty, the baaad stuff with objects ;) The first days were really messy because I was all like "wtf why do I have to use cast all the time? ... what casting is bad manner? Damn good old asm days were I knew each and every RAM cell by name (because I've chosen it) and all variables were 8 Bit. Well I start to like objects again and also get to like the features of a daddy-like compiler telling me what's bad :D
Best thing is that I have to handle the incoming 20 MB/s USB stream as fast as it comes in. Well ... the really best thing is that my professor likes the task as much as I do and pays me a PC with a server mainboard and two QuadCore CPU's ^^
enough smalltalk, I'm still alive and in good work!
