Long time no update

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted something interesting here!

I’m sorry about that, this blog is not dead at all, as for me and my projects! In fact during that long period of silence a few thing happened!

I’ve been a lot busy by life and other things and didn’t had proper time to work on my project here.

As I said a lot had happen in the mean while, but as this is just a short message to make you know I’m still alive, I will keep it short, and try to do most post starting from now and will explain what had been new in the last 2 years (seriously, how can I’ve left here empty for nearly 2 years… Sorry about that)

Forum Change

I think this time it will be good.

I’ve installed discourse as a forum for this website, and it should also be used for comments in the blog posts.

The installation is still in testing phase, I will open the account creation shortly, but will keep the fact that account creation need to be validated, at least for now, there are too many bots around, and too many forums has been defaced, so I will try to play safely here.

Please also report any problems you see (other than down time) 🙂


Patreon: 986-Studio need your help

I hate to ask for such a thing, but unfortunately, working on electronic project, especially the one like the Madeleine Project, or my projects around the Oric cost some me money, and money doesn’t grow on tree. I’m currently in a situation where I’m stuck and can’t work on project because of money.

That’s why, I’ve started a Patreon page to allow people who want to support me on theses projects. I can’t offert a lots of rewards for the moment as it’s a bit early, but I will make the reward evolve with time. Currently you can have one of the current beta Madeleine board if you pledge enough, quantity are limited so you should hurry! 😉

You are not obliged to help me through Patreon, it will not change my project and how this blog is working, unless mentioned in a reward/goal, it will just allow me to work quicker and in better conditions on my projects. All pledge amount are welcomed, and if you want to help me, even $1 is a good gesture from you, so don”t be ashamed if you can’t, or only a for small amount.

Don’t forget to put a maximum on your pledge per month as I setup my account on pledge per update and not per month, as I don’t know the frequency of update I will do, I plan for approx 1 per month, but I may sometime update more than once, and you may not want to put more this month.

So, if you want to help me and my project, you are welcome to go to

and become my patron.

Thank you to everyone who read this blog and to those who would want to help me,

New Forum

Hi everyone,

I’ve just embedded a forum engine to allow discussions about my projects or whatever that are not directly related to the blog entry I made.

You should be able to log in the forum by using the same account you may have created on my blog.

If you have any problem with it, please tell me on this blog entry, or in the forum if you can log on it 🙂

Ho and you can use the link in the menu bar to get to the forum 😉

Soon I will try to integrate the blog comment with the forum so that both will work together. I’m still trying to understand how it work and if it really work, as my last test wasn’t really convincing.

Server issues

Hello everyone,

Apache have some issue on my server and tend to crash easily, I’m working on it, but it may get down sometime without me noticing it, I’m sorry about this and I’m trying to get this fixed asap.

Edit 25/03/2015: The issue should be now fixed.
A big thanks to mod_python..

Small Update

WordPress have been updated and a new theme “Twenty Forteen” emerged with it, seems a bit better than the “Twenty Eleven” I used earlier (and it is at least smartphone aware which is nice) I only dislike this white background, I may put it to a more light gray shortly. If you see any strange behaviour, don’t hesitate to tell me!

I will try to keep this blog more updated, as I work on my projects, so expect more to come in a near future 🙂
