Hello world terrorism


So getting hello world to work is proving as difficult as getting JTAG working. First of all, the ISC_BLANK_CHECK command on the STR9 is documented wrong. Blank sectors return 0. Written sectors return 1.

Secondly, the ISC_READ command is returning random data for the flash contents. The same thing happened with PIC micros, except now ISC_READ is returning valid data for the configuration register.

Removed the STR9 library in favor of manually setting the registers. The STR9 library added 10000 bytes to the executable. Without it, hello world is 68 bytes. Hello world isn't working of course.

In today's crash, was doing sideways/nose-in movement. Got it going pretty fast upwind. Then on the direction reverse it suddenly rolled excessively left. Applied right cyclic with very limited results. Seemed to run out of room, so instead of throttling up, killed it. Not sure how it ran out of room, besides flying in the most overcrowded country in the universe.

In other news, The Canon passed exposure 50,000 today while shooting another sunset movie. If it was an EOS 350D it would have died by now. If it was a 350D, would have probably had no trouble spending the extra $200 on an XTI at this point.
