Hi again!

Maybe my mail was too short and too mysterious (sorry for my gramatical mistakes!), but I have problems with my personal computer and I must check my mail while I'm working, so I cannot spend too much time.

As I said, I'm working with the mcore simulator. Even I made changes to the sources modifying memory management and trying to include some peripherals. As a result of that work, I got familiarized with the gdb simulator interface and with the sources for mcore. So I think I´m able to study the new changes in the interface and to adapt the mcore sources (I guess).

Also I want to participate in SL community and I feel like working with gdb. I am a telecommunications engineer and I've experience in C programming. I don't know if all this is enough, but I'm ready for hard work. I hope you consider my offering.

Thanks and greetings!
