Coffee, Tea, Bagels, and Pastries


SARS, Forth, and Vitamin C - CH Ting

"I am getting deeper into Vitamin C and found it is very similar to Forth. We've gotten a extremely effective medicine, but the main stream medical-drug industry rejects it completely. As Linus Pauling discovered, the reason is 'There is no money in it!'"

"I also found that calcium ascorbate, the calcium salt of ascorbic acid, is as effective as Vitamin C. The best part is that you can get both Vitamin C and water soluable calcium in the same tablet."

"If I get around to do something about it, I will also talk about Multitasking in eP32 Chip. The internal stacks in our current design are deep enough (256 levels), and it can support 8 or more tasks, only if we can read and write the stack pointers. I am trying to implement this and hope that I will have some results to report at the June meeting."
