Yay, I now have running on a PYNQ-Z1 FPGA board. It has a 650MHz dual-core Arm Cortex-A9 with 512MB RAM. That is not enough memory to run though.

"Who Will Mourn the Tech Bro?
The subculture you love to hate is tough to define. It will be even tougher when itโ€™s gone."

"I asked Ingram to define โ€œtech broโ€ for me. She offered: men working in tech who have 'a disregard for other people because they believe that everyone in the world is treated equally.'

This made more sense than anything Iโ€™d heard. Itโ€™s a definition that addresses the industryโ€™s theoretical status as equalizer, its proponentsโ€™ view of themselves as forces for democratization. They write the code that permits tiny businesses to process credit cards, or allows almost anyone, regardless of background or monetary worth, to maintain their own website. The god in the machine as deliverer of equality through binary code. The ones and zeros see us as all the same."

anyone else remember when the linux community was proud of its support for old hardware and not desperate to jettison it as quickly as possible?

Count Dracula was 412 when he moved to England in search of new blood.

Sauron was 54,000 years old when he forged The One Ring.
