So what's going on with Signal's new architecture that retains all user data? It seems like a total reversal of their previous stance and one that dramatically changes their threat model. Their new security properties rely entirely on SGX, which is barely secure against motivated home users, much less nation state adversaries.

Today's success: a risc-v softcore running C code, decoding the spispy fpga's control registers to monitor the data on the SPI bus. Works in simulation and on real hardware!

The easy part of FPGA projects is wiring them: just plug into whatever pin is convenient! That hard part is actually writing working Verilog that can handle clock domain crossing to external devices.

Although Amsterdam is only 52°N, the midnight sky is still quite bright during the summer solstice.

Did you know it's possible to balance upside down during the solstice?
