Why talk about it now?

I swear I’m not a geek.

… but I did just finish a primitive CPU.

It features an input mux, a 4 register register file, and an ALU with AND, ADD, SUB, and NEGATE functions. Right now its fairly primitive, mainly considering that all the I/O and control functions are pulled out to pins, and not to a control block that automatically handles all of those lines. In 2 weeks we start meddling in assembly (*cringe*) and create an instruction set, so we can abstract these compute functions into higher level functions.

Its 11:35 now, perhaps I should go do something fun. Like design a function generator in actual hardware.

Ok so maybe I am a geek, so what?
