Looking at the Wikipedia MMIX description, at a glance it seems like "just another CPU".
If you have studied it: Could you give a few clues to the architectural details that makes this one worthy of Knuth's signature on it?
I have just started it (the books are difficult, I have to admit).
I believe it is not the CPU to be remarkable. The algorithms are. However he did need a CPU and existing ones didn't fit very well with his (regularity) requirements. As himself says MMIX is very similar to 'modern' 64 bit RISC CPUs, but less 'fat saturated'.
And we'd love to give away more of these so we've decided to pick 1 spot prize winner every day until the contest ends. The challenge is simple and only takes about 20 mins - so grab your Arduino and get in on the action!
Thanks so much. I really thought the extra code was a lot of fun. And I'm totally blown away by TinkerCad. It is really amazing. I hope a lot of people get to try it because it is very cool and is a great first step to trying out Arduino if they never have.
I just blocked vs in the firewall (I block an and outgoing connections that don't have a rule allowing otherwise.)
I don't see the need for a lot of programs to be to be phoning home or in too many cases continuously chattering on the internet.
This internet thing is amazing! Letting people use it: worst idea ever!
He's only suggesting you block VS in the firewall. What you do for fun on saturday night is really none of our business...

also make sure that any hidden git files on your solution are gone too. I know I have to do this with TFS sometimes if I don't want the solution to be managed by source control and the normal means does not work.
