How long a second can be??? It’s too long a time when it comes to computing. It so happened that I switched on the microcontroller which had a code with a silly (?) bug in it. Seconds later I realized and fixed it but found that the code is not working. Awh.. it irritates me a lot when the code with perfect (!) logic fails to work. I spent a lot of time on this *so said* correct code, but the fact is I forgot about the first stupid move (switching on the mc with wrong code). That did the trick – 8 bytes of EEPOM memory got dead. Note that , it takes about 1 lakh writes for a EEPROM cell to wear out. So, is that an achievement?? :D. (8 lakh writes in less than 10 secs!!!)
Changing the EEPROM addresses made me smile. It worked!.. It worked last week too, so getting it worked is not a big deal. The happiness was due to the reason that I could manage to reduce the size of the code a lot and now it looks much more elegant (Even I felt ashamed of the code I wrote before). I even added a couple of extra features. J
I am blogging from office! Lemme stop before they kick me out. J
hi you are right. debugging is really divine part …
ninte aa SwaPu swabhavam iniyum maariylla alle!! 8 byte dead aakkiyittu irunnu chirikkunno!
u meant our experience with Zope?
Seems interesting. Hope you are enjoying the embedded field.

Btw, Who is this anonymous?? Why cant he/she disclose his/her name?
Yes.. can I help you..
(Whats the tone like??)…
I seriously thought you wud use SwaPu if u comment..
Of coz… Its fulla fun out here…
I know.. the moment i realized the problem i thought of the post (“Less bugs more fun”).. i shud have compiled it myself once more before i tested!!..
about anon… i give the rite of disclosing to the person itself (if anon wishes)…
thank u for the rite vivek…;)
