mainly just my keyboard input is screwy, ive never really messed with keyboard input past entering a single letter before, but it shouldn't be to hard to figure out.my main problem is getting the input into a buffer area, but I plan to fix it soon.

Greetings!

First off, I will admit when I joined here I was a n00b whom thought I new it all Embarassed and
when I brought this contest back for the second time I was still a n00b and I new enough to
make an OS, I was wrong, I will not be competing in this contest unless I can learn enough
before the due date, with in the meen time I will continue to learn and push harder efforts Smile

I just thought I would tell you guys what was going on and that I didn't run off with any code
here.

I find the best way to learn is...

1) Get someone elses code.
2) Play with it until its completely broken.
3) By the time its fixed you had learned how it really works.

Or maybe thats just how it works for me...

What about self-modifying code with assembler-specific opcodes and almost no comments? Ha! I've spent at least ten hours on BEFI (which is barely 1k of code output and < 10k source), and while I understand it pretty well by now, I'm not sure I'd say I know every little nook and cranny. Except for one exceptionally-hairy line (blah xor [something], xor 0FFh and blah shl Cool and a rare (stack underflow) self-modification bug (due to MCBC's NASM origin, I presume, present only when switching to TASM which optimized the "cmp sp" opcode to the three-byte version), it wasn't anything I hadn't seen before. But a lot of things weren't documented at all, so I was scratching my head a lot wondering, "Why doesn't that work?" And yet by Japheth's standards, I'm probably very very n00bish (rightfully so, I guess, I don't understand pmode at all).

Well, I almost had an entry, But of course time is up. I guess this comitition will only
be a one on one. Good luck to both bitshifter and windwakr. I will add a poll at the
top. May the best micro OS win!

If I could get my OS entry working in time it would be a great entry as it is only
about 300 bytes and runs in 32bit text p-mode.

Hey, thats not my OS, but just a .com demo for my CLI...

So i guess windwakr wins by default!

Yes it did, I am still in shock :-/

@bitshifter: OK, then, I just assumed since I saw you talking about Alex's boot
loader on the DexOS forum about loading the COM file.

congrats windwakr!
