It's dark at night but a single LED light shone
2 development PCBs and a keyboard, the light shone upon
Above them were 2 computer screens
The left had reference data, on micros and other themes
The right was a program with many lines of code
To undertake a concept, designed by me it owed
I struggled with the core that ran, many bugs along the way
But slowly the machine ran faultless, it was written in a day
Finally the magic of the program, showed itself as I went
Then a small addition here and there, showed incredible augment

    Many apologies for not reading and making note on everyone's drabbles. As you can see I've been doing things to suck up time elsewhere. I have only started working on the core which will stop soon and then I start on a language to program on it and then maybe a few utilities to make life easier. Wish you all the very best.

    No worries, Peter. Other lives get in the way from time to time... yours sounds a very busy other life.

    Cheers, Peter, and no worries. Good luck with your project - as someone who used to work in IT (far too long ago) that sounds fascinating. Let us know how you get on, and again, good luck!
