Prefix Report by hcs at 4:59 AM EDT on May 30, 2018
As a big component of my graduate degree (MS) I wrote a report on prefix coding. I've generally been too embarrassed to publish it, but I think I'm over that now.

Encoding a prefix code

No original insights as far as I know, due to being scooped by Narimani and Khosravifard. The possibility I bring up in 3.2 is what I finally realized was impossible here.

And hey, Finite State T-shirts still available.

Speaking of embarrassing, here's an interview I did in 2009 about my ICPC experience and working at IBM.

Picked up one of these today at Target: PAC-MAN Pocket Player

It's competent, I like that the screen is big enough (cf the stupidly small Pocket Sprite) and the controls feel ok. This has to be running an emulator, though it's definitely been hacked (even if Pac-Man still takes coins it's been reformatted for landscape and has "TM and (C)1980 BNEI"), I think the other two games (Pac-Panic and Pac-Mania) are the Genesis versions. One thing that bugs me is it doubles up some lines in order to fill the screen completely, this is especially infuriating with the scrolling Pac-Mania.

I'd love to hack on this, I popped it open and found a big Flash chip as the only recognizable feature: Spansion S99JL032HBT1 209FF032 G (probably 32Mb/4MB?). So it should be possible to reprogram, I'm wondering if there might be a programming mode on the USB connection or if that's just for power (possibly launched by some button held on boot I haven't found yet?)

Or I wonder if it would be feasible to connect the heart of the PocketSprite to this I/O...

I guess what I'm really saying is I just want Gameboy Tetris on this thing.

Sounds like fun hcs. Would be cool if you could add your own games

I wish I had one of these babies CRAZY but yeah I could still settle for Pacman ;-)

I found this quite interesting since I kind of forgot about the Saturn but good news it was cracked back in 2016. Nice story here

Pretty cool
