Long time no see. I'm impressed by seeing so many known names in the "last posts" after so many years.

I cannot guarantee you will see me around pretty often, but since I'm busy digging into exFAT things right now I thought it would be nice to confirm what you apparently already know: yes, I've been pretty disappointed to see that 64-bit architectures would require me to re-do everything I had in Clicker. Plus, Clicker was built around the idea to use segmentation for good purpose, and segmentation was gone altogether, so there wouldn't be a "Clicker64" thing. That would just not be Clicker anymore. not at the kernel-level at least, which was all I had.

That all happened as 1) someone nuked my wiki again 2) sourceforge changed php version making me unable to resume my wiki from database dumps 3) the final months of my PhD thesis.

Where have I been all those years ? I've been on bare metal. On a platform where there is no need for an operating system at all ;). I've been making tools and games, because I initially started doing clicker in reaction to none of the operating systems I had to be on par with my needs to make the game I wanted to make.

Oh, and I've been doing low-level stuff for daytime job, too. U-Boot, watchdogs, uploading stuff to FPGAs, gdb-server debugging over serial and network...

Hey there, Solar. Hope you've made progress on your ProPOS ;-)
And I see you've beaten my posts record, too ^_^

Nah... Pro-POS died back then when I gave in and said "OK so let's start coding"... and everybody else suddenly disappeared.

PDCLib passed on to Owen Shepherd, who adapted and expanded it to suit his needs. I was in a mind to get back into that to -- perhaps -- make it "complete" some day, but real life took over (again).

Programming is currently nine-to-five, and no more than that. I hadn't posted here at all for quite some time, but returned a couple of months ago to take my mind off less savory things, doing some casual post or two.

Welcome back, Mr Clicker!

I have some way to go before reaching your insane post count :) Nice to see an old name back, though!

Cheers,
Adam

Hello, AJ. I remember your eyes ;-)

Oh, and just in case Beyond Infinity shows up as well, let me post the link to the hitch-hiker guide and hitch-hacker guide I wrote about the platform I used for my thesis ^_^
