@bhtooefr @piggo I just ordered a new car without nav recently, because nav is always sold as part of the surveillance dystopia bundle, it seems? I don't want to live in some John Deere future where driving behavior is monetized.

My sons college is forcing students to use proprietary Adobe products like Illustrator and Photoshop and this really pisses me off. Any school should offer their students the possibility to use free and open source software and with #Inkscape, #GIMP, #Krita and #Blender there are excellent alternatives available.

us residents: give everyone healthcare

us politicians: how about "access to high quality insurance"

us residents: no, that's not healthcare

us politicians: how about a public-private partnership to open a marketplace of insurers

us residents: healthcare

us politicians: how about… a marketplace…

us residents: :trebuchet:

us politicians: …of ideaaaaaaasssss

David relayed

us residents: fix healthcare, we're dying

us politicians: "let's make sure there's thriving competitive market for hospitals so when medical customers voluntarily decide to have a mental crisis, they can evaluate the care providers in their budget and make the most informed choice that works best for them"

us politicians: *roll out a public/private partnership website that runs a java applet to show you the two hospitals in your area and they both take only one insurance* "perfect!"

tired: byte endianness

wired: nibble endianness

inspired: bit endianness

log:
it looks like ARMv7 supports 2 level 1 translation tables. 🤔 with that, I could dedicate the first one to the kernel and the second to userspace...

also not sure if I should link the kernel using virtual or physical addresses...

log:
after that, dynamic memory allocations are done by adding entries in the level 2 table. I guess once one level 2 table is filled, another will have to be created (and added as an entry in the level 1 table)

log:
after only semi-working on the MMU init stuff for the last month, and re-reading datasheets a lot, I thiiiiiink I have the concepts down:
1) set level 1 table's size in SCTLR
2) set level 1 table's address in TTBR0
3) clear level 1 table, clear level 2 table
4) create "section" entry in level 1 table that covers the kernel, level 1 table, and level 2 table
5) enable MMU
