Someone asked "Max, any thoughts on FPGA self-modifying code similar to uP/uC self-modigying code?"

Thsi is a very interesting area. Th eoriginal FPGAs could only be programmed in their entirity. Morte recently we have "partial reconfifuration" in which some parts of the FPGA keep on running while others are being reconfigured. When I was in Norway 2 weeks ago visiting th eUniversity of Oslo I saw some amazing things in this area. The problem this is a big topic in its own right -- way to complex to go into detail here (especiallc considering th efac tthat I am a two-fingered hunt-and-peck) typist
