Well, it’s been a long time since the last time I wrote a blog post, so I think that this blog needed a little update.
Development went pretty well for some times, and the bootstrap part is close to be completed. It just needs some code rewrite in places and a function to generate an identity-mapped 64-bit page table. But I can’t write that now. Why ? Am I giving up so close ? No, I’ve got some work to do. I’m in internship, which eats up all my spare time in work days, and my week-ends are not that empty either because I use them to do all those things I usually do in the evening.
It ends at the beginning of July, then I go on holidays, but starting with the last week of August, I should get enough time to do everything I want, including OS-related things.
To end this post on a more positive note, I’ll soon get a new computer. It’s a laptop with brand new hardware that will help me getting some work done and, what’s more important for us here, that’ll be useful for OS testing and driver development once code is mature enough ;)
