qi-bot[commit] Adam Wang: changed ADV7125KSTZ140's IOR, IOG, IOB, ~IOR, ~IOG, ~IOB type (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/kicad-libs/840589801:55
qi-botThe build was successful: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/build-nanonote/openwrt-xburst.minimal-20120421-0029 06:24
viricI have an e-reader that charges through usb as the nanonote08:42
viricbut one curious thing, is that if the computer with usb-host is turned off, and the e-reader connected, it *discharges*.08:43
viricWhat do you think about computers using that ultrasparc openhardware?08:46
viric(cpu)08:46
viric(opensparc.net)08:47
viricsome years ago there was a notebook with one of those, isn't it?08:47
wolfspraulnot practical I think, the design is too large10:06
viricok10:37
viricbut they make it fit in a single fpga, no?10:38
viric(virtex5?)10:38
viricI couldn't find a clear statement of that though10:38
wolfspraulright10:42
wolfspraulbut honestly, I think it's fair to say that is just history10:42
viricah.10:43
wolfspraulif not, proove it wrong. get an fpga devel board, download opensparc/sparc* hdl sources from somewhere, get it to work and blog about it10:43
wolfspraulSun is history10:43
viric:)10:43
viricah right, last post from 2010 there10:43
viricand the previous, from 200910:44
rohnot only is sun history, also oracle tries to actively destroy all of their former values12:30
rohso i wouldnt wonder if oracle would start nagging opensparc on a patent level at some point12:30
