What in your experience, makes more per T per hour? Leesti ↔ HIP 65636, or BD-22 3573 ↔ Reshas? I've heard arguments both ways. The Reshas run is a single jump, but less per T. The HIP 65636 run has (for me) two systems en route, but definitely seems to be more per T. The question is ... well, I guess the question is: has anyone time-trialed the two routes and compared them?
For whatever it's worth, I'm flying a 256T Python on the Leesti ↔ HIP 65636 run right now (though I've tried the other one), and only just making the Leesti to Lemastshi jump right at the limits of my single-jump range (until I get 5M CR together for the A5 power supply, which seems to be the best bet for the money).
Still thinking about a 100 x overclocked quad-core 6502 with some extra opcodes for forking and IPC, and an MMU, with 16MB of RAM and 4GB of flash DASD, running Fuzix.
I've got an Altera Cyclone IV, which should have enough cells to pull it off. I think I will need a second one to act as the graphics card and sound chip.
Graphics modes seem like they're going to be (all with four planes (RGB+Attr), where "Attr" is spare storage that it's up to the programmer to decide what to do with)...
512 x 256 x 1 bit per plane (8 colors + 1 attribute)
256 x 256 x 2 bits per plane (32 colors + 2 attributes)
128 x 256 x 4 bits per plane (4096 colors + 4 attributes)
That's a full 64KB of video memory right there, so memory-mapped graphics are probably a no-no, but with the new PAGE opcode & register for handling the upper 8 bits of the address bus, we could have PAGE 0xff as always the graphics page, just as PAGE 0x00 is always going to be a copy-on-write image of the the Fuzix ROM.
As far as the sound card, I'm thinking I can probably clone a simple version of my Pygmy Behemoth -- square wave, ADSR volume envelope, ADSR bandpass width with inverter bit and time multiplier/divider, ADSR lowpass frequency with inverter bit and time multiplier/divider, vibrato depth and speed, tremolo depth and speed. All that times as many voices as I can fit in whatever's left of the second FPGA once I've made the graphics work.
Scientists are now connecting several large radio telescopes and telescope arrays to build a telescope which has the wave gathering power of our entire planet. This huge virtual telescope will have a resolving power 1,000 times greater than the Hubble Space Telescope. A recent test connected the APEX array in the Atacama Desert which includes the ALMA 66 telescope array covering 16 k.m. with a large radio telescope at the South Pole. The part of the array in the yellow line below connecting APEX/ALMA in Chile with the South Pole. This distance was 7,000 k.m. In the next couple of years the array will include radio telescopes covering one side of the entire world.
Just to give you a sense of the extraordinary power of this huge array, named the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), it would be able to read the date on a penny if an observer was looking through a telescope in New York and could read that date on the cent in Germany. The purpose to begin with is to see the shadow of the event horizon and perhaps the glowing swirl of gases and Hawking Radiation from the Milky Way's central black hole in Saggitarius A. That black hole, with a mass of about 4 million of our suns is expected to have an event horizon area of about the size of the orbit of Mercury, about 33 million miles across. It is about 26,000 light years away in the central hub of our galaxy.
The purpose is test some of Einstein's theory of general relativity and to understand how black holes ingest and even burb out huge amounts of matter. It will also prove whether or not black holes exit. There's a huge amount of literature and scientific and popular articles galore about this effort. Here's a good link explaining how one major component of the EHT works. That is the ALMA array with it's own supercomputer center to synchronize the timing of all the 66 huge telescopes in the Atacama Desert. http://mktlibrary.com/2015/03/12/how-the-huge-alma-radio-telescope-works-infographic/ You will certainly want to read some about ALMA and the European Southern Observatory (ESO) facilities in Chile. It is the most advanced astronomical instrument in the world. I know many of you will be absolutely enthralled with this article from Astronomy Now. Here's a link to one of the best films I've ever seen about ALMA: https://public.nrao.edu/gallery/into-deepest-space-alma-film It's from 2012 and explains ALMA, it's history, surroundings, purpose, and the science of it very well. Just last year all the electronics of this array were replaced and the supercomputer center was completed. Enjoy the film and this article.
