We are continuing to improve our embedded development support in Visual Studio and VS Code. We have recently introduced a serial monitor and RTOS support for Zephyr. These capabilities are present in Visual Studio 17.3 Preview 1 as part of the Linux and embedded development workload. The Embedded Tools extension for VS Code also includes these capabilities, though the serial monitor is available as a stand-alone extension as well. This post illustrates these new capabilities in Visual Studio and VS Code.
I will start by describing three major categories of word recognition models: the word shape model, and serial and parallel models of letter recognition. I will present representative data that was used as evidence to support each model. After all the evidence has been presented, I will evaluate the models in terms of their ability to support the data. And finally I will describe some recent developments in word recognition and a more detailed model that is currently popular among psychologists.
So far I've presented evidence that supports the word recognition model, evidence that contradicts the serial word recognition model, and eye tracking data that contradicts the word shape model while supporting the parallel letter recognition model. In this section I will reexamine the data used to support the word shape model to see if it is incongruent with the parallel letter recognition model.
On the second day of the Dollhouse Stream, Jerma arrived wearing his signature white wife beater and a pair of Miserable Mikey gloves to show off a new bedroom addition to the house. Chat purchased "Uncle Ted's Set" for the house which included Uncle Ted's couch, table, and spoon collection. Uncle Ted then came over to the house, causing Jerma to be terrified as just a few days ago he was told that he was dead. Jerma called the Grim Reaper to promptly escort Ted from the house but the next day, Jerma would get a call informing him that Uncle Ted had died yesterday and that he would receive $2000, suggesting that Jerma had killed Uncle Ted by sicking Death on him. Jerma was visited by a kind, robotic sounding, older woman by the name of Edna who helped Jerma bake Pecan Sandies. Jerma was forced by chat to be flirtacious and dance with Edna despite his clear and overt resistance. While Edna was over, Jerma hired a Workout Instructor to do aerobics and afterwards was ripped off for $100. As the house was a mess, Jerma called a cleaning service and was greeted by the "Sexy Maid" Emilia who was not at all prepared to actually clean. In the night, a bear came to the front of the house and knocked over the trash can causing Jerma to be startled awake. Jerma went out to confront the bear and was horrifically mauled. After the mauling Jerma streamed on Twitch and passed out live, causing him to get a 1 day suspension because he did a sleep stream. Ludwig came over telling Jerma that he lives close by at "983 983 Dollhouse Drive" before playing a quick game of Battleship where Ludwig cheated his way to victory. During the game Jerma was called by a Car Warranty Scammer who had harassed him as well as Edna earlier, with Jerma desperately begging him to put him on the do not call list while knowing that they would probably call again because he answered the phone. Chat later gave Jerma a stolen TV, which came in a completely broken state and was promptly confiscated by Sheriff Tony Andrews and a serial jaywalker. Jerma was able to get off without paying a fine because of his flirty comments to the policeman. Jerma that night had a nightmare with God in a clown car, a cowboy with a sword, the sleep paralysis demons, and an assortment of other neighbors who belittled him for shitting his pants in class when he was younger. When he woke up, Emilia came over to clean again and Jerma asked her out on a date for the next day to her excitement. Jerma was then suspended AGAIN for sleeping on stream before being confronted by a group of church goers at his front yard whom Jerma had to convince to leave by dancing for them. Despite Jerma having a date set with Emilia that night, he stood her up to sleep on the couch, telling himself that they would understand. Rising early the next morning, Jerma decided to cook butter and eggs (his favorite) on the stove. Unfortunately a grease fire started, and Jerma desperately tried to put out the blaze. Failing miserably, the fire spread aided by the Sleep Paralysis demons and Jerma attempted vainly to defeat the fire with a super soaker. Eventually Jerma fought one of the Sleep Paralysis demons in hand to hand combat and was brutally thrown out the bedroom window, thus ending the second day. 2b1af7f3a8
