Happy Thanksgiving

If you celebrate Thanksgiving where you are, have a Happy Thanksgiving! If you don't celebrate it, have a happy Thursday. I will take this opportunity to get a few days of rest. Hopefully you can also.

There isn't a recent beta posted yet, but we continue to press ahead. Rice has worked on a lot of things for 1964 in the past week, and I implemented regcaching for the SSE fpu, which translates into more speed (again, of course, if your processor supports SSE1 fpu instructions).

Rice: After the holiday weekend, I'll finish up some more of these ops and then send you the source.

Very good thanksgiving for all. In France, we don't have this day. I heard about that in some tv show.

Could you explain to me what is Thanksgiving exactly.

Good meal !!!
Happy Thanksgiving all!
Thanksgiving is when family and friends sit down and give thanks, plus a bigass meal! :D

The United States

In 1621, after a hard and devastating first year in the New World the Pilgrim's fall harvest was very successful and plentiful. There was corn, fruits, vegetables, along with fish which was packed in salt, and meat that was smoke cured over fires. They found they had enough food to put away for the winter.

The Pilgrims had beaten the odds. They built homes in the wilderness, they raised enough crops to keep them alive during the long coming winter, and they were at peace with their Indian neighbors. Their Governor, William Bradford, proclaimed a day of thanksgiving that was to be shared by all the colonists and the neighboring Native American Indians.

The custom of an annually celebrated thanksgiving, held after the harvest, continued through the years. During the American Revolution (late 1770's) a day of national thanksgiving was suggested by the Continental Congress.

In 1817 New York State adopted Thanksgiving Day as an annual custom. By the middle of the 19th century many other states also celebrated a Thanksgiving Day. In 1863 President Abraham Lincoln appointed a national day of thanksgiving. Since then each president has issued a Thanksgiving Day proclamation, usually designating the fourth Thursday of each November as the holiday.


Thanksgiving in Canada is celebrated on the second Monday in October. Observance of the day began in 1879.
