Old MacDonald had a RISC Instruction Set  
"eieio"

It's a PowerPC assembly mnemonic for "enforce in-order execution of input/output". Let's just say that I'm really enjoying this week's training on the MPC82XX (70)  "system-on-a-chip. It has a G2 core and a number of other potentially cool stuff which has only been hinted at so far. I'm totally digging this.

Have enough processing power for the stuff you guys need to do now?

Absolutely. It lets us use more abstract coding methods which may not be as efficient as what we have done before. This is the beauty of the embedded processor.

I used to work on the IBM 405GPr. I also had a good laugh when I discovered EIEIO-- I think I had to learn how to use it when initializing the cache, or something like that.

It's awesome. Also, my roommate keeps pointing out to me that it should be "eioeoio".
