CarlFKthe guy that is looking at porting Rohit's vga to Opsis asked "can I make an adapter to plug the exiting vga board into the pci slot" ?13:07
mithroHis timeline should have something more detailed than just bonding period13:08
mithroCarlFK: sure, doing that is on my "things we want to do" list13:09

tumbleweedmithro: gonna need some help some time with debugging that opsis21:16
tumbleweedolasd: did we figure out if JTAG programming the FX2 via another board's FX2 should be feasable?21:16
olasdI don't know whether the fx2 is jtag-programmable; I got confused in the middle of things21:17
tumbleweedif it isn't jtag-programmable, then presumably we're up shit-creek, right?21:17
olasdit must be programmable out of band somehow21:19
