Hi all, I am working to get some content up. My day job is keeping me busy, and in what time I have, I have been fighting with LLVM on the Ember assembler and linker, as well as fiddling with my new FPGA board. I am determined to learn Verilog, but mostly end up just fighting with JTAG and how to even set the thing up...what a pain!

Anyway, in the meantime, you can check out some posts I'm working on going back to the beginning of the Ember CPU design. It might be too high level for some, but I wanted to get to the basics. If I overly simplify things, you can always just skip ahead, but I have found again and again, that when someone assumes everyone is on the same level, some will get lost...I've been that lost person enough times to know...

So, my plan is to keep this site fairly low-level, with notes on my progress, links to code, design documents, etc. while going into much more detail on my Medium blog. You can find the first post here, and there will be more to come soon.
