I've heard some fun tooling stories from people at my university
One of them was a slightly different model number requiring a second huge download of the same backend

@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberhaha19:42:54
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberSome fun stuff about the FPGA purchase, I fell for good 'ol marketing and bought one that looks nice. Then I actually did research AFTER ordering it and realized I can get one that has amazing IO (compared to the one I bought) with half the logic cells (no clue if this isn't indicative of actual quality / capability) for less than 1/4 of the price19:51:45
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberso I'm waiting for the one I bought to arrive so I can basically immediately cart it over to the amazon return point we have in a store nearby19:52:12
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberhttps://www.arrow.com/en/products/deca/arrow-development-tools here's the one I got, very excited for the microsd, ethernet, the audio jacks, and the hdmi19:53:38
@kng:kng.reKngthat's quite a diverse set of IO19:54:24
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberI'm embarrassed but I'll post the one I almost (technically did but I'm getting a refund) bought19:54:51
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberhttps://www.sparkfun.com/products/17514 with its IO you cant use without paying them more money for headers ;)19:55:19
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberI'm sure there's a reason to buy that one, I did like the size of the chip but its better if I just get the 45 (shipping+tax) one so if I decide "dang I hate this" way less of a loss19:56:31
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberand should be plenty capable19:56:46
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberI'm gonna make the coolest bad apple player ever ;)19:57:41
@kng:kng.reKngI don't know, https://youtu.be/X4faogRMOL4 is hard to beat19:58:51
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberand also I would be able to try those really neat cores that (cant pick a good word for it so gonna use this wrong one) emulate old devices / architectures19:59:48

@kng:kng.reKngchips?20:00:39
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberokay I think emulate is technically right but its way faster than anything you can do on a pc20:00:52
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberThey recreate the functionality of stuff like the NES in hardware20:02:19
@kng:kng.reKng I'm not actually sure what the correct wording is. Wouldn't it be electrically identical? Maybe simulation is better?20:02:47
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberHonestly I dont know20:03:56
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberRight now I've had trouble wrapping my mind around verilog/vhdl20:05:11
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberand I wanna relax but I've noticed there's a fleet going on in eve so I should go make sure they dont need any help lol20:05:56

update is I'm stuck shooting at a structure and trying not to get shot :)

@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberI love how all the links in quartus links to altera which redirects to intel22:27:54

@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberverilog is nice, I've got an ALU and a register file doneish02:38:13
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberSo nice fun at work today, boss asks me to set the canonical (for SEO) on some pages because his SEO tool says "duplicated page without canonical". I try an easy way of setting it to what he wants and it doesn't work so I then do some research on "should I actually be doing this". The answer is no, in terms of SEO what he wants shouldn't be done. I investigated the issue further and realized that what he thinks is the problem isn't even the problem so I wrote that up and asked him to call me. I explained it to him and he kinda just... repeated that "[seo tool] says I (him) needs to set the canonical" and just kinda said he'll figure it out and ended the call -_-15:38:13
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberFor those who are curious our site has "category" pages that, guess what, duplicate the content of articles exactly. But the tool says "nope the paginated category page doesn't have a canonical" so he's missing the big problem15:38:34

@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberWhy can't intel get their drivers for fpgas signed?21:05:02
@pentadyne:matrix.orgamberthat seems so trivial...21:05:06
