        Let's go for a rare treat : a complete missive from Mr. S. (signed)

        Dear MP,

        July was a slow, sickly, humid month, spent much of it in the 'uranium mines.'
        But, here goes:

        A) Split the mainboard in two, began routing PCB traces on Unit 'A' and 'B.'
        Slow and painful process. Aiming to submit an order to Macrofab Inc. before Aug. is out.

        B) TheRealBitcoin...

        1) Fired up three public nodes running my bleeding-edge builds of TheRealBitcoin!
        1a) 'Dulap' (; flagship node!) [1]
        1b) 'Zoolag' ( [2]
        1c) 'Incitatus' ( [3]
        These are listed in order of capacity.
        All three are 24/7 systems with very reasonable connectivity.
        I shall be adding a fourth node to this list in the near future.

        2) Wrote a blkxxxx.dat slicer, 'BlkCut' [4] just in time for the July fork shenanigans
        and the required post-mortems (Tastes great in a balanced diet of my 'dumpblock'
        and 'eatblock' extensions to TheRealBitcoin. (See last month's [5].)

        3) Patch abolishing 'testnet'. [6]

        4) Patch enabling operator to force verification of ~all~ blocks, regardless of
        'checkpoints'. [7]

        5) Obtained a 'MiraCast' device, possible economic alternative to 'Pogoplug.'
        Modified said example to enable serial tty.
        Discovered a simple means for reading and reflashing the EEPROM. [8]
        This is a very standard 'ARM' chip and 'buildroot' will spit out a Linux for it
        in precisely the same way as for 'Pogo.'
        A clone of 'MiraCast', even more Chinese, is expected to show up in the post next week.
        Will determine whether this procedure works for it, likewise.

        6) Rotor!!
        Reasonably simple automaton for building a fully-deterministic compiler and static libc (Musl,
        vs the Drepperized glibc that Must Die) and building a fully-static TheRealBitcoin for a
        machine of one's choice. Posted an example which builds for x86_64 Linux. [9] This experiment
        has since been replicated by several others.

        7) (Yet-unpublished) 'Rotolinux' - CDROM image, generated with a slightly more complicated
        incarnation of (6). Boots an x86_64 'pc' into a minimal Linux environment which attempts to
        locate a mass storage device containing a blockchain - or empty partition for emplacing one -
        and executes TheRealBitcoin. Also includes toolchain, for rebuilding the latter - and self...

        8) Some research regarding mempool dynamics (see #b-a threads re: same.)

        - -S

        1. " Aiming to submit an order to Macrofab Inc. before "...

          Hopefully that wasn't intentionally left blank.

          In other news, browsershots went to shit somehow.

          Lemme know if I managed to fix.
