    I had a lot of fun finding the top of the charts on the day each of my brothers and sisters was born. Some day it will form the basis of a skit at a family reunion. Me, I’m “Rock Around the Clock”!

    I saw that article on the Edison over at HackADay…that’s so cool.

    It’s also amazing that the very tiny microSD cards typically have an ARM running at 50 to 80mips as the controller. They need the cpu since flash is so riddled with bad sections… The ARM is a COB package and costs about a quarter each in lot 10,000+

    A 32 bit cpu running at 50-80mips in every tiny microSD..who would have ever imagined.

    Here’s a nice intro to The Exploration and Exploitation of an SD Memory card….this is from the recent 30c3 conference in Berlin (In English)

    Hi Jeff,
    saw in some earlier posts you where working on a Free Pascal/Lazarus Book. Just wanted to let you know a good book on that subject would be great. I recently switched all my development over to Lazarus and don’t even use Delphi anymore. Free Pascal and Lazarus totally rock and they are going to release version 1.2 of the Lazarus IDE soon.

    1. Yes, and I intend to go back to it after I’m through with my current book project. I can’t describe the book yet (and I’m not the sole author) but it includes a short section on Lazarus, as available for the Raspberry Pi.

      Not sure what else I can tell you right now. I’d like to sell the book to a real publisher, but if I can’t I’ll publish it myself. Let’s just say that, having once co-owned the largest book publisher in Arizona, I know how to do it.

      Many thanks for the encouragement. Noodges on this front always welcome.
