Just found an interesting question in SO. Some guy wants to apply Google tests to embedded STM32 program. To do this, they decided to write the STM32 HAL emulation (probably, to run such tests on a PC). Of course, after writing the whole HAL emulation (!!!) they have hundreds linker errors and want to know, how to fix them. But this is not a point.
The interesting thing is the idea to make HAL emulation for running Google tests. Isn't this crazy?
Finally, their hardware device will be part of some bigger thing. Like aircraft. After aircraft crash, they can say "But Google tests are OK!".
In my company, when somebody tries to talk about Google tests for embedded programs, or code analysis for embedded programs (kind of Coverity, no goto please!), or Agile hardware development, I brutally refuse to talk about this. Hope this will never happen.
Talking of "two Thanksgivings ago": Anyone who is still unfamiliar with Arlo Guhrie. Alice's Restaurant[^] should spend the 18 minutes it takes to listen to this talking country tune!
The movie based on the tune is certainly a nice presentation of hippe life at the time of Woodstock, but it is not half as funny as the song. Watch it if come across it, but don't cross the continent to get hold of it.
Do you think there is any malware that can escape a virtual machine?
Nothing escapes from a virtual machine. Once the malware passes the event horizon, it is reduced to pure energy by the time it reaches the singularity. Wait... that was a black hole, not a virtual machine. Better install everything on a black hole then.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
