The Case for the Unattributed Message
Well I dreamed there was an island
That rose up from the sea
And everybody on the island
Was somebody from TV
And there was a beautiful view
But nobody could see
Cause everybody on the island
Was saying: Look at me! Look at me!
Look at me! Look at me!

Why am I doing this? Basically my day job takes place entirely inside a dumb bubble full of a very narrow type of problem, and a narrow type of engineer. I'm bored of working with them, frankly, and I would like to get back to helping more people with more realistic problems.
Oh yeah, I should mention this here! Teensyduino 1.47 ships with a broken Makefile for the Teensy 4.0. It does not work at all. Here's how to fix it.
0. Edit ~/ardunio-1.8.9/hardware/teensy/avr/cores/teensy4/Makefile
1. Change -D__IMXRT1052__ to -D__IMXRT1062__ in DEFS.
2. Change -DF_CPU to 600000000
3. Remove -nostdlib and -nostartfiles from LDFLAGS
Yay, now it works! Use it as the basis for your next fun project.
