So, sadly it does not in fact run Doom.
Mission accomplished! Well done, sir.
What's the highest baud rate the serial interface supports? You could theoretically get PPP over serial working, but I suspect at best you could only manage a few frames per second. 320x200x4bpp at 1fps requires a 256k baud rate minimum, and that's just streaming the video, without any overhead—I suppose you could apply compression: ssh -C with the "none" cipher; or just compress each frame as a PNG, but I'm thinking outloud—this would probably involve writing your own renderer.
I was attending a conference with some vendor booths, and while it wasn't anything like a job fair, I thought I'd try my luck at pitching myself as a prospective hire. So I went to the most IT-oriented vendor that I could find, introduced myself, and proudly presented my solid plastic CompTIA A+ certification.
The good fellow thanked me and promptly pocketed it! It all went downhill from there as I had to explain that was a credential and not a calling-card, so I got it back, and definitely didn't get hired for anything!
Talking about concrete work you've done (of interest to the company) is much more convincing.
Might make for interesting reading.
If you can’t bring yourself to connect a USB device from your embedded systems engineer then you shouldn’t be working with that person. You’re also going to have a difficult time working with them on just about any product.
Maybe just appreciate this for what it is: A novel business card.
As a gimmick for highly likely prospectives (or, alternately, a thank you for current clients) this is absolutely at a price point of "have 50 spun via pick and place" to have on hand.
It can be exchanged for goods and services.
I want to have a conversation with the digital equivalent of:
> "That's bone. And the lettering is something called Silian Grail."
> "It's very cool, Bateman, but... Egg shell, with Roman."
> Now a third broker pulls out his card. It looks exactly like the first two, except it reads TIMOTHY BRICE: VICE PRESIDENT.
> "Raised lettering, pale nimbus."
> "Impressive", Bateman mutters. "Let's see Paul Allen's card."
> The room falls silent as the third broker produces an absent colleague's card.
> «Look at that subtle colouring. The tasteful thickness.»
> His face creases in horror.
> «Oh my God. It even has a watermark.»
Also, continuing similar tradition, I hope you've reserved mail addresses ending with 6,7 and so on for future generations.
Amusingly, my wife also has the same middle name as the women in my family, so the tradition is likely to continue.
(Also, does it make your feel like royalty?)
What really makes me feel like royalty is not the name, it's the throne room I had installed in my summer home in the Bahamas. That and requiring everyone I meet to call me "sire." (/s)
Kudos on finding something that can run linux without having to deal with BGA by the way.
Author is probably a millionaire by now.
