asciilifeform: phun phakt. ubiquitous series of ethernet cards by 'realtek' take (optional) microcode updates. (they are volatile, live in a kind of 'patch ram' until next reset.) they do not appear to match any known cpu arch (i tried a dozen or so.)
asciilifeform: available evidence points to these being code for a dsp, which modulates the business end of that thing, ~in software~. whoever solves these, could, conveivably, play music through the pairs...
asciilifeform: [insert obligatory thread re: 'magic packet' here]
mats: interesting
asciilifeform: phun phakt 2: the words 'magic packet' appear in the chip docs. for traditional variants thereof ('wake on lan') naturally
asciilifeform: several kinds are implemented. decoded 'in hardware' (that is to say, of course, by the thing running that microcode..)
