I can't shake the wanting to play with reversible computing. I've put together a simple project that allows me to experiment with the ideas of psi-lisp, while limited it allows me to explore this space which I find fascinating. Somehow, this makes me feel like I'm visiting an old friend.

Meanwhile, I've been trying to bring potato to a usable state, which means that for it to entirely replace the current launcher, it should be able to assemble and run assembled rom, to which I am inching closer.

Since the turn of the year, we have spent every waking hour rewiring Pino, it has been a more challenging project than we had hoped but we will sleep soundly knowing that each connection was properly made.

I've read Koopman's Stack Machines: The New Wave and it inspired me to experiment with other virtual machine designs, namely that of the NOVIX NC4016. But after two weeks of experiments, I returned to writing Uxntal, partly because I do not feel limited in the realization of my ideas with my current stack, and partly because these sort of systems make for extremely obfuscated assembly languages. That being said, I can't seem to shake the craving to experiment with the Setun-70..
