GZX open sourced!

I published the source code to my personal ZX Spectrum emulator, GZX as free software. It is hosted on bitbucket.org and published under a BSD-style license. Watch the video as I introduce GZX and its history.

Note that this is the kind of 'here's what I have, use it for whatever you want, I'll continue working on it for myself' thing. I am not soliciting code contributions and I cannot guarantee I would accept any since this is really a personal project. Of course, feedback is always welcome! Please keep in mind I am a busy person with several other projects and a life, so this is way down my priority list.

Still I hope to do more work in this interesting area.

Simple HelenOS coastline package installation

You can now easily install coastline packages in HelenOS using the 'pkg install' command. It will automatically download and install the latest build of the package from ci.helenos.org (you need your HelenOS box to be connected to the Internet, obviously).

Previously you would have to download the package, uncompress it (into .tar format) and copy it to the overlay directory in your source tree. Then you would have to rebuild the boot CD image and restart the system.

Awesome presentation on good API design video

Go watch the video How To Design A Good API and Why it Matters. It's awesome. Well worth the 1 hour of your time. Boy that guy is good. Also, he must be reading my mind or something.

Modules in C/C++?

It looks like there is again a proposal to standardize modules in C++. This would be very nice if successful. While I don't care that much about C++, it has been the trend lately that ISO C picks up useful C++ features (e.g. threads). So who knows, maybe, maybe we could finally get modules in C, after 40 years? Pretty please?
