The video is bad quality, but you get the idea.

Excellent work. Any additional information on hardware, code, tools and instructions to help others who are starting out ?

Why would you possibly use the only ARM assembler that is written in x86 assembly. I guess you have no hopes of ever self-hosting?

(Also, long time, no see :) )

Hi earlz,
Yes long time, no see.
Sure self host is part of the plan ;) .
But also i like to keep things simple and fasm is powerful and simple at the same time, so FasmArm is a natural chose.
There are quirks, because its originally coded for x86, but its improving all the time.

Hows your coding coming along ?
