i could learn the pru
but i could also buy a quad
amstan
and i have the datasheet too, it's like an overclocker's dream
Rickta59
the rk3288?
that chrome book seems pretty neat .. might make a nice ereader
amstan
if you want a nice ereader, get http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZS4HK0Q/ref=twister_B011REW3AC?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Rickta59
is that what you have been using?
amstan
yep
Rickta59
the hisense
amstan
for the past few months
it's awesome
no, the asus
i used the hisense when the asus was pretty prototypy
so... march
Rickta59
8032 .. what is that?
arm?
amstan
Rickta59: that's Exhibit A for manufacturers being stupid and totally botching up their marketing tables
it's just an rk3288
Rickta59
that asus is an arm?
amstan
yes
Rickta59
or an intel .. i just searched 8032 and it indicated an intel
amstan
no, they're just being stupid
Rickta59
interesting
amstan
look.. i can send you a picture of a motherboard, i worked on it for the past few months
if it was intel, i would have known about it
Rickta59
no i believe you
amstan
it's as if someone's paying amazon or asus to botch up their descriptions
Rickta59
:)
amstan
i did see Intel Rockchip for the CPU at some point
if you look on the table on that page
for the toshiba
"4 GB DDR3L SDRAM"
Rickta59
yeah it seemed like the deal with rockchip was to turn them to doing intel stuff
amstan
well... is that sdram or ddram? make up your mind!
Rickta59
did you start the med stuff yet?
amstan
yes
Rickta59
fun
what is the downside to that hisense chromebook?
$149 seems like a decent price for a quad with decent rez
Amp
Alright
Soliciting opinions
I want to do something vaguely productive tonight
Do I go through the next chapter of C++ Primer, or try and actually start setting up an MSP432 Launchpad Makefile?
Spirilis
start setting up a makefile
get a practical environment set up first so you stay motivated to learn the former :)
Amp
I've got practical environments for other micros, just not the 432
Rickta59
hey gnomad
i had something to tell you a week or 2 ago ..
* tries to remember
hmm .. maybe it was psoc4 support in openocd
or maybe it was the psoc5 on a stick with a debugger ... can't remember one of those 2 things
Amp
So I left out these chicken breasts for like 3 days
Had a rather pungent sick sweet smell to them
Being an idiot, I decided fu*k it, waste not want not
and cooked them anyway
They still smell bad
ginman
enjoy your salmonella
Rickta59
* dialing poison control for Amp
Amp
I said I cooked it
Not necessarily ate
Rickta59
you will probably be fine ..
people are so chicken :) .. about eating stuff that smells funny

Amp
Though
yes
I did eat one bowl of blackbeans&rice with some of the chicken on it.
Couldn't get over the rather horrible taste
So, unfortunately, I will be throwing two whole cooked chicken breasts out. ...and airing out my kitchen.
g0rdon
rick sir
and the rest of the gang
(Action) tips hat
Amp
This is a gang?
g0rdon
if you don't know the secret buttshake, it isn't
Amp
Is this it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7GN70wn9GM
Rickta59
hiya g0rdon
the gang has dwindled
THH, SugarAddict .. gnomad, opossum .. used to be frequent talkers ..
all dead now
g0rdon used to be a talker ;)
back when mem were men and 2k of was more than enough
2k of flash
and dev boards cost the right amount ;) $4.30 .. ah those were the days
i'm still drawn to boards that cost ~$4
i see the esp8266 things are coming as boards now

Xark
Rickta59: A "dev kit". :)
Rickta59
pair it with esp8266 arduino and i guess you could call it that
