MIPS Oxford Hello World

Image
Do you love or would like to learn Assembly? Here is your starting code:


## Methark Technology - MIPS Example
## hello.asm
## Registers used
## $v0 - syscall parameter and return value.
## $a0 - syscall parameter-- the string to print.

.text

main:

la $a0, hello_msg
## load the addr of hello_msg into $a0.

li $v0, 4
## 4 is the print_string syscall.

syscall
## do the syscall (print the string).

li $v0, 10
## 10 is the exit syscall.
syscall
## do the syscall (close the program).

## Data for the program:
.data
hello_msg: .asciiz "Hello World\n"
## end hello.asm

You can download the Spim MIPS simulator from Source Forge.

Have attention with one image

Doesn't matter what you are posting bellow the image, users will look at it and raise the chance of engage your post.
The secret is to use a great title like "How To", a cool image of what you are talking about (on this case Pinterest) and a sort of character that will intrigue the user.
Color palette is to be used or your image will be confusing.

Russian next generation Soyuz

Image
Russia has been working on a new spacecraft to get cosmonauts to the moon and Mars.
Now, the Russian Space Agency revealed images of the new, unnamed spacecraft, which has been under development for around a decade.
It looks remarkably similar to Orion – Nasa's new spaceship designed to carry humans to an asteroid, and eventually to Mars.
It is designed to replace Soyuz-TMA that carries astronauts and cosmonauts to the International Space Station.
RSC Energia says it will test it over the next few months, which the first unmanned orbital test flight of the new spacecraft scheduled in 2021.
Earlier this year, Russia announced plans to send manned flights to the moon by 2030 after reviving its lunar programme with unmanned spacecraft. It was the first time Moscow had set a deadline for the space plans, hoping to recapture the early glory of the first space race, when they beat the U.S. at getting a man to orbit the earth.
Barack Obama previously wanted to get Americans ont…

Aviation Drone Strike

Image
If our new great public technology of drones is generating so many almost air traffic collision problems, there should be some law that states drones to use TCAS sort of automatic collision avoiding system.
One more thing to worry beside bird strike. Now we will have Drone Strike.

Operational Systems War

Before thinking about write this article I was happy with my Win7 for it's user friendly desktop, my GNU/Linux Mint 13 for development, Android for my Sony smart-phone and Apple's IOs for my tablet (or IPad).
For stranger it may seem, the comfort of having so many different resources was given just and only for all options and tools one of those could give exclusively on that platform.
Windows 10 Wave
Not blaming Microsoft, in fact they did what should be done to keep the competition for the market - with is to force the users around the globe to use just their products and services like Apple or Google on it's own way.
With a fair price you can buy a Microsoft's Smart-Phone or Tablet and it's bleak the future between Microsoft and Sony products with is pointing for a new generation of laptops, computers and game consoles.
The Big Picture
Let's see some charts and facts to get a grip of what was going on in July 2015 regarding those systems:

Wikipedia's Depression

Image
There is a lot of great articles Wikipedia can offer in many languages and it is without a doubt the biggest on it's market.
Even with reports along the time of errors, span and even censure; it's huge content kept Wikipedia as a must-have favorite for millions. Yesterday I went to Wikipedia to ask for an update of a mistaken part of an article and this was what I saw covering the entire top of the page:  Followed by this: As a non-profit organization is their legitimate right to ask people for donations of course, but like this, is almost saying: - Hey, pay us or our service will give you adds or worst. Just a PayPal's donate button isn't enough?

Wrong Way of Business
By doing this Wikipedia is showing the world users that it's not a free encyclopedia but a poor business planned organization that even being known worldwide can't raise funds from companies. Instead, they are trying to apply the in-app-purchase politics.

What is the Problem?
