BareMetal is a 64-bit OS for x86-64 based computers. The OS is written entirely in Assembly, while applications can be written in Assembly or C/C++. Development of the Operating System is guided by its 3 target segments:
  • High Performance Computing - Act as the base OS for a HPC cluster node. Running advanced computation workloads is ideal for a mono-tasking Operating System.
  • Embedded Applications - Provide a platform for embedded applications running on commodity x86-64 hardware.

Education - Provide an environment for learning and experimenting with programming in x86-64 Assembly as well as Operating System fundamentals.

Hunt for the Gold:Silver Low   25 May 11
[print link all ]
Over the past 8 months, silver has seen a spectacular run-up in price, taking it from $17/oz in August 2010 to an intraday high of almost $50/oz on Monday, April 25 2011. Correspondingly, the gold:silver price ratio has dropped over that period from a value of approximately 68:1 down to 31.44:1 at the time of writing. This is a drop of 53.82%, the biggest spike down in the gold:silver ratio since the Hunt spike in 1979. Back then, the ratio went from a value of approximately 33:1 down to 13.99 — a drop of 56.61% in approximately 5 months time. Furthermore, silver is now in its 25% most expensive trading days since 1885 when compared to gold, with an average of the gold:silver ratio of 45.7:1 over the past 125 years.
