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.
Here are the #ForthDay video links as promised:
the "de" Editor, a blend of acme (Plan 9/Inferno) and vim
implemented in go
IMP, NCP, Unix, ARPANET, IP, TCP: die Ursuppe dessen, was wir heute als Internet kennen, garniert mitt ein wenig Unix Folklore. Toller Vortrag, ich habe den Anfang Oktober live in Krakau gesehen, jetzt gibt's den endlich auch auf Youtube. Enjoy. #vintagecomputing

Excuse me while I go re-read my (ancient) copy of "The UNIX Programming Environment" which I've probably read close on 10 times!

Klaus Zobawa has ported Mecrisp-Stellaris (ARM) Forth to Cypress PSoC 4/5 Micro-controller systems. A port to PSoC 6 is in the works.
I just have added some PSoC 4/5 boards to the Micro-controller lend service of the German Forth Interest Group.
Source and files of Mecrisp for Cypress SoC can be found at
