    Well, speaking of dreams, whilst I can't remember last night's epics, the night before I was dreaming about designing some form of remote control for a model plane.

    As a method of doing such, it was remarkably crazy, but there you go.

    Then again it didn't involve static methods and inheritance, whatever that is, which was all to the good.

    There's one good thing about programming small machines: the OOP approach is to fat to fit in the memory.

    Which is good.

    For most of them even C is a bit too fat & happy to fit in.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

      I still have road digger uppers in my street. Fortunately they've moved along a bit and it no longer feels like they're drilling into my head.

        I just had to update an old system exit, written in Assembler (IBM HLAL).
        Took me back did that

            Ah, the dear dead days of assembler, z80, 6303, 6805, 8085, and that shock to the system: 8086.

            How I do miss them.

            Still writing PIC assembler though, or I would be if I did anything technical any more.

            Walk walked, though somewhat damply.

            Found what I think was a dead hawk on the road, difficult to tell since it was extremely flat.

              I quite miss assembly language too. At least you didn't have to worry about leaky abstractions in the language or slightly different behaviour across implementations (not counting the JMP indirect bug on the 6502, or the "undocumented" instructions that became documented on the 6510)

                Lunch: cold sausage + cold rasher of bacon in a wholemeal butty. Lovely

                I've been in the habit of freezing sausages and bacon in sets of three, which means I ended up with one of each left over after yesterday's lunch. I can't decide whether to start doing them in pairs for the sake of the vague diet, or to keep on as I am for the sake of the cold ones in a sandwich the day after, as I'm very partial to the sandwiches and they have the advantage of having half as many calories as the previous day's - less, in fact, as I don't have butter on the cold ones.

                Today's weigh-in came in almost two pounds lighter than yesterday despite the ultra-high-calorie lunch, so I'm still getting something right

                  I'd say stick with your current system.

                    Lunch was one of those part-baked baguettes freshly cooked up. Filled with cheese and ham.

                      Yes, I probably will. The threes are also the right amount for things like chips, sausage and beans, and I seldom plan meals more than a few hours ahead so having them in pairs would limit my options more
