Coffee, Tea, Bagels, and Pastries
Drawing Engine and Algorithm - CH Ting
"The most efficient drawing engine for line-drawing and polygon-fill. It is now implemented in the core of EP32, and uses hardwired logic to draw lines, at 2 machine cycles per point, and at 2 machine cycles per horizontal lines within a 32 pixel boundary. I believe it is the fastest polygon-fill algorithm for its hardware implementation. If you are interested in computer graphics, please come and join the discussions. Forth code and a testing routine will be presented."
"The most efficient circle drawing algorithm. It draws line segments closest to a true circle without multiplications. It employs only addition, subtraction, incrementing, decrementing, and left-shifts. Forth code and testing results will be presented."
Lunch - on your own
Introductions, Announcements, Rumors, and Gossip
Wescon Panel Discussion - Those who
attended the show
SVFIG Participation at the Vintage Computer
Festival - Dave Jaffe
Radio Play - Kalifer Deil
"No Forth involved but computer technology certainly. It is a 45 minute presentation by the "Apple Engineers". The play is titled "Flight of the Soul" and is based on articles and books by Ray Kurzweil of synthesizer fame. It is done somewhat in the style of "Copenhagen" and "Dinner with Andre" in as much as there is a lot of talking and not a whole lot of action. The music fabric was of course rendered on a Kurzweil synthesizer. I wrote the play and composed the music under the pen name Kalifer Deil."
Possible FIG or SVFIG Business Meeting at a location to be determined.
