I am so disappointed at the way the Processor is being used and articles that describe. To begin, I am a new subscriber and do not know if the same comments have been registered by someone else. If they have, so be it.
The Propeller is a parallel processor and a rather powerful at that. I have been researching the topic of parallel processing as well as teaching it for many years, since the time the Connection Machine, the Maspar Parallel Processor, and other similar beasts were alive. I even followed with interest the Beauwolf project. I expected some serious articles about using a number of Propellers connected together to form a parallel processor. And yet, all I have been reading is hooking up the propeller to turn an LED on and off or to make the propeller drive a speaker! Mundane things that an 8-bit PICAXE chip or an arduino can do without much effort. There are a couple of books out, but, again, very little, if at all, said about parallel processing. Isn't there anyone out there that can write some serious stuff about this truly remarkable and beautiful chip, stuff like sorting out a database with a million items in it in a matter of a couple of minutes. If so, please, let me know so that I can communicate further with that person.
