Progress on Spinel is going quite well, I think:

The Spinel operating system, rejuvinated
New and improved

…hmm. It looks mostly the same. That’s because I restarted development around 2020-02-20 for many reasons. I was able to get it (mostly) up to feature parity, so I’ve gone ahead and merged the reset version into the main branch. On top of that, this new version also has a functioning memory manager, which is always a good thing.

I’ve also gone ahead and released the source code for Spinel. You can find it here, if you’re so inclined.

In other news, university has been kind of a slog recently. If you know me at all, you might’ve heard me talking about how the modern public university system isn’t well equiped to handle those with restricted interests. I’m taking an atmosphere science class right now, and I’m supposed to be a computer science student (sort of… I’m technically undeclared…). I’ve applied for transfer, but they don’t seem interested in accepting my physics or atmosphere science credits, so I’d have to take another physical science class…

Fortunately, I think I have an out. My goal is ultimately to become a professional programmer, right?

So what if I just did that?

Now, it probably won’t be easy and probably will take time, but if I can pull this off, I can break out of this rather restrictive system and into doing what I love.

I’ve already been enacting this plan. Recently, a company has reached out to me and provided me with a technical examination. It was exhilirating. I think it was probably one of the most fun tests I’ve taken in my life. That’s part of why I’m going through with this plan.

I have no idea who’s reading this blog, if anyone, but thank you. I have no idea if my little progress reports are interesting to anyone, but I might at least keep posting about Spinel’s progress here. Maybe. I’m not sure.

Maybe I might take up art and post that on here. Or Twitter. Or both. Who knows?

Sorry for going off on tangents upon tangents.

See you next time!
