As usual, this week's live online chat on Thursday, Oct. 11, promises to be a rip-roaring, fun-filled, roller-coaster thrill ride of thrust-and-parry ideas. Last week, everyone had a really good time discussing all sorts of things, from dynamic partial reconfiguration and creating radiation-tolerant FPGA designs to bacon (which we all agreed is very tasty and can be cooked using microwave radiation) and the time zones in India -- it used to have two but now has only one.
What? You missed it? Turn that frown upside down, because you can see our archived version of last week's discussion by clicking here.
As for this week's chat, the great thing about All Programmable Planet is that everyone has so much input and such interesting ideas that someone will set a conversational ball rolling, and everyone else will race around adding different thoughts and perspectives.
The chat -- which is similar to using an IM (instant messaging) system but employs your Web browser -- will commence at noon my time (Central USA Time), which is 1:00 p.m. ET, 10:00 a.m. PT, 6:00 p.m. British Summer Time, and 5:00 p.m. UTC/GMT. You'll have to work out your local time from these clues.
Assuming you are already a member of All Programmable Planet, all you have to do is to click here at the appropriate time to join the fun and make your opinions known. If you aren't already a member of All Programmable Planet, now would be a perfect time to register.
See you there. Be there, or be square.
