    Some background on this project is here https://forums.parallax.com/discussion/156000/fastest-possible-fifo-buffer-to-infinity-shield-kickstarter-and-beyond

    Looks interesting, James!

  • Thanx. I’m sorry...
  • I missed it the first time. It was hard to see next to the graphic.
  • I missed it too...
  • Ray's video is posted up top, and here if you don't want to look:

  • Thanks Ken! I'm glad you're a Zoom guru BTW. I would have been lost...
  • Thanks for posting the videos. I'm sorry I missed the live presentations and want to catch up. We are in the process of moving residence from Berkeley to Benicia, with all the confusion and space/time warp that entails. Only 30 miles, but 10°F warmer, out of the coastal fog.

    Wow, wow! Never thought I could have envisioned that. My image of Dr. Allen is riding his bike from home to the shop down by 4th street (?), soaking in all the Berkeley culture. Maybe that culture has become a bit too thick.

    I can't imagine moving your shop. Two stories of tools, equipment, environmental measurements, and 30+ years of problem solving is packed behind that nondescript metal door.

    My son Gian, you know him, lives in Benicia right around the corner. That is the main impetus for our move over there. We do like the town, much more laid back than Berkeley, less on edge, less "thick" as you might say. I do still have my workshop in Berkeley, for the time being, the first time I've had to commute other than bicycle. When I "retire" it will be a squeeze and a painful task to relocate the paraphernalia to the Benicia garage!

    It's great being near family, and our 12yo granddaughter. Gian and I can get together in the yard and talk shop. He still works with the Propeller for the agricultural data logger we designed for his company, and although he hasn't been following the forums or the Prop 2 development at all, he is interested. It's sure hard to explain in a nutshell. We got into the subject that often comes up here, how hard it is to explain an unorthodox technology to people who are in positions where they need to adopt new trends and market demands but are concerned about industry standards and how to hire people who will carry on through full product life cycle. A problematic goal anywhere, no matter what the underlying technology. How can early adopter enthusiasm coalesce into a catchy storyline?

    One point to make is you're on the metal. There's no layers of software hiding what's going on, other than what you choose to add yourself that is.

    The other biggie is the symmetrical nature of everything. Not just the CPUs.

  • Reminder to register for tomorrow's FlexGUI presentation with Eric!

    Hi Ken, If I have all my P2D2 hardware back and tested, I'd like to do another presentation just on the hardware features and how we can use these boards. But rather than putting this down beside a firm date, I have just added another table there in the same format with a tentative but grayed out date of Aug 5th. I'd do it earlier if I can and if a slot is available, or later if I have to.

    So this second table might be useful for all those that would like to present something, but not sure about exactly how or when. Maybe they will get some feedback and encouragement.

    I'm upgrading my upstream capacity so I can have all those IP cams running in my workshop this time!

    Certainly, Peter, whenever you are ready we can confirm the date. I think it could also be an interesting topic to share your PCB layout best practices, some of the component choices, along with other aspects you wish to share. It seems these presentations have been very useful to the community, evidenced by the signup rates.

    Just keep me posted and reach out by e-mail if I'm non-responsive on the forums for some reason.
