So… another slice of FME controversy can be laid to rest. I’ve uploaded a page about EPEE which includes a very brief overview and a small flash movie showing it in action (of sorts!) but it’s worth mentioning a few additional points here:

  • It is not a finished product. It never has been, and it never will be.
  • It will never be released – it remains as a testbed to work on improving the emulation core of EPOCH
  • I am only posting information about it to quell some of the previous rumours about it

Hopefully this will show that it did (and does) exist, and can run EPOCH ROM’s (after a fashion), although there remain some issues to be solved – not least of which the fact that the Stake/Prize system and much of the electromechanical hardware is not implemented correctly (in other words, at the moment it’s largely hard-coded to enable test code to be booted).

What’s the goal/future? In a word – unknown. I dabble with the code from time-to-time, but generally speaking don’t have a lot of time or enthusiasm to work on it right now. I have other projects and which attract my limited attention, some of which I will likely blog about in the near future.
