Tom Young of the Linuxzone kindly pointed out to me that this blog's description says that I'solemnly vow to update at least two times each week.' Yet I have not done so!For really a long time.
But I can assure you that the lack of activity is not due to a lack ofthings to say -- it's just a lack of time. So many things go on at once inputting together a Web-based magazine like this: recently we added discussionforums on a variety of Power and PowerPC topics; we're working on tweakingthe PACnewsletter based on feedback from readers, and we are in the midst ofpreparing some of our first tutorials -- which are going really well -- theyare going to be really excellent learning resources -- for publication. Keepan eye out for the first of those next month. We're also readying a download fornext month, but I can't tell you what it is because it's a secret.
Meanwhile the world hasn't stood still waiting for me to catch up with it.A plethora of things are going on outside of the zone that I should havealready told you about:IBM Microelectronics has launched their 2005 WebSeries broadcasts with Important Programming Model and Architectural Differences in IBM PowerPC b"750GX and 970FX Processors The nextWebSeries is coming up June 15, you can keep up with all of the upcomingWebSeries broadcasts at the Microelectronics WebSeriespage.
Then two major events are coming up in quick succession: the first open meeting of thePower Architecture Community is in Barcelona on June 9. Since we can't allbe there in person, you can attendlive online in real time.And right after that, the 43d DAC 2005 is coming up on June 13. The groupworking on IBM representation there has posted a reallyexcellent IBM DAC show guide.
I could go on and on, but I really need to space some of this informationout into mutiple posts so that I can explain to Tom that it's two posts a week-- on average!
