MbedConsole Status

I just felt I should update on the status of MbedConsole. A formal release is coming soon! I'll probably release it before my Forth interpreter is completely done after all though.

Anyway, I received my nice PS/2 Keyboard Breakout today. I soldered some pins on it and got it to read scan codes from a keyboard with a bit code. So that part is working pretty well. The next big thing is getting it to correctly translate those scancodes to ASCII text. I've done this kind of thing before, so it shouldn't be too hard.

So far, about 8K of RAM is used up in all of the overhead, which I don't think is too terrible. My goal is to have 20K available to the Forth compiler/interpreter thing and I think I will be able to easily manage that even with a couple of utilities. Of course, I'm also already up to 32K of Flash, but that's no big deal since I have 512K

Anyway, I expect to release the code in probably another week or two. Hopefully with some small demo of how awesome it is.
