Caleb will help motivate our dev PD by blogging about Clean Code (jelkner)12:04
ubuntouristjelkner, I briefly considered finding the 1975 font (or similar), and may go back to that thought later.12:25
ubuntouristjelkner, If I can create a modern PDF with the old look, great. But I've never been a fan of scanned printouts.12:26
jelknerubuntourist, ah, but it is the marks and imperfections that give it that "authentic" feel12:28
jelknerlike an old photograph12:29
jelkneranyway, being able to use the index alone will be a big advantage12:29
jelknerbesides, ubuntourist, it gave you a fun project to use to learn sphinx ;-)12:30
ubuntouristI added more to the XOR section, and may consider mixing in elements from my "PDP-11 Assembler Made Painless"12:32
ubuntouristBut, as I said: First, finish Part 4 and then attack Part 2.  (The Appendix was done as of early last night.)12:32
ubuntouristAnd, cross-linking, indexing, etc yet to be done.12:33
ubuntouristjelkner, If any of the students show affinity for this, I'd appreciate it if they'd glance at the PDP-11 text. To whit:12:35
ubuntourist(No need to study it in depth.)12:36
jelkneryou should appeal to them yourself to do that, ubuntourist 12:58
jelknerbtw. just added your version of the manual to the course homepage12:59
