I've written a #Forth implementation of the assembler I use for my virtual machine, so I can now build a new base image from within Retro. This gets me much closer to being able to self host all but the VM.
I've finally had an opportunity to get my MacBook updated, so I'm now running the latest Xcode again. Also setup Android Studio, so I can finally start learning to do Android development.
Progress on app updates and new projects will still be slow as I'm still having a lot of RSI issues. I have a long list of ideas and todos, but it's hard to get anything done when I can only work for an hour or so before the pain returns.
I'm finally starting to dig back into my projects. My RSI issues aren't resolved yet, but I'm at least not in pain now.
First up, a small update to my #iOS #gopher client to improve the display of non-standard item types in menus. This is out now at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gopher-client/id1235310088?mt=8 Hopefully I'll be able to do considerably more work on this soon; I've been experimenting with some user interface stuff and looking into allowing file downloads and more viewers.
Binaries (macOS, Windows, DOS) will be updated soon. The iOS version (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/retro-forth-12/id1170943580?ls=1&mt=8) is already done.

We're seriously understaffed. There's no one in the warehouse, so I've been handling that. This leaves the office with one person (who will soon be out for 2-3 weeks for a medical procedure). Two people on the counter, but one of them will be out next week. Our AR person is doing deliveries since we have no driver. I'm getting burned out. 50-55 hour weeks, and falling ever further behind. Coupled with an ongoing lack of sleep I don't know how much more of this I can take...
The confusion arises because our skin, frankly, is conductive and ohmic. Worse, our resistance depends on how moist the skin is.
So, with a high enough voltage, and moist "enough" skin, Ohm's law applied, you will develop a large *current* across the body, and that will stop the heart if it exceeds 100mA.
