New public facing service. My own instance of privacy oriented meta search engine , read more about it here: - it may get restricted to German geo location shortly.

@Truck there are still some things to work out now, but I am hopeful I can show you the tool chain at Revision - or even release it around that time. I think you ll be very pleased how easy it is to get things up and running. Ease of use getting stuff running is the number one priority of HAM.

@Truck course not. Just used it to display the source. HAM is very simple to use, and has near zero dependencies in the distribution.

3.0 update log - Next milestone reached - C++ compiler / linker / execution environment now work with the latest GNU tools.

Toshiba rant: If you are tempted to buy a large USB HDD, do NOT get the Toshiba Canvio Basic 4TB. It's write speed is abysmal for some reason, no matter what format or system you use (continously decreases from the expected 100MB/s after writing a few GB of data, down to **less than 1MB/s** :-( ) - a quick search reveals i am not alone with this problem - Returning mine asap. Any tips for a good 4TB, 2.5 inch external drive?

Opensauce adventures: Needed to apply a patch to a Linux kernel module to make my DVB-S hardware more reliable. (if you care at all, it's this: ) Was surprised at how relatively simple i could patch and compile the latest upstream 5.1rc1 Linux kernel, install it on my distro and just have it all work on first try.

Reminder: if you don't use JavaScript, you don't get crashes. And don't need loading screens.

@Truck indeed, i am grateful for every minute of the party. I ll get in touch there and if there’s something to show, I ll give you a peak. Don’t stress :-)

@Truck I hope to be able to use it to release a GBA intro for Revision. Cu there I suppose?

Milestone! HAM samples compile and run on emulator as well as hardware on the latest GCC / newlib toolchain. (Happy dance)

@p @Tyrent @meowski quite right - despite my best effort to make it clear in the policy, some people still abuse the open signup. I permadeleted the users. I may have to close new logins if it repeats.

3.0 update: finally managed to get binutils, GCC 8.3 (C and C++) plus libraries compiled for good old GBA within the HAM compiler creation scripts. Newlib 3.1 seems to be compiling fine, too... anxious to see how long until GBA target compilation will work.

Geeky crosscompiler compilation log - upgrading my HAM GBA devkit from 2004 to 2019 versions of GCC, Newlib et all. #1 arm-thumb-elf Target no longer exists, so arm-none-eabi it is #2 GCC on Arm will not compile with new(ish) systems like GCC stack smashing protection, so —disable-libssp More to follow
