Out of nowhere the warnings flashed red on his screen. David cursed as he ripped his oxygen mask from his sweat drenched face. He couldn't get timing closure on the design.
He was barely hitting 1.1GHz, and his goal was 1.5GHz. It was likely going to take weeks to untangle the longest paths causing the delays. They might even need to re-architecture some pieces.

Snowdrift.coop will have a few representatives (a couple of whom are giving talks on tangential subjects) at #LibrePlanet2020
May also have a chance for some meetup, let us know if you'll be there and want to connect!

Well, this is an epic version of Juke Box Hero. And Kelly Hansen demonstrates some remarkable lungs and vocal chords in the middle.
