  • I agree with joepierson. Nowadays, everything needs faster and faster processors. What for? I believe they do that to avoid having to optimizate the code. I think that if everyone programmed in x86 Assembly, or even C or C++, instead of in high level interpreted languages, applications would be a loooot faster and clearly they wouldn’t need a lot of memory.

  • I was thinking of a way to program microcontrollers without any special nor expensive hardware in the pc. This would work by sending the information to either one of the keyboard leds or by flickering the pc monitor. In the receiving side, a ldr or a photocell may take the results and program the device. This IS very slow (60 to 75bps), but may be enough for some applications.

No public wish lists :(
