At bottom of page, 'This lets you get very precise about which test cases are running'. Seem you forgot the noun following 'very precise'. Completing this sentence will fill in the idea. firstname.lastname@example.org--Lee Larson

In the discussion about clocks roll over, since the timer has a microsecond tick period, a 32-bit counter register would roll over after a bit more than 71 minutes instead of 136 years while a 16-bit counter would roll over after a bit more than 65 ms instead of 18 hours.--Robin Farine

MinGW and cygwin issues with the eclispe files. Here is the fix:
1) Deleted all the .project, .cproject, .cdtproject and .settings (this is a did) files to get rid of all the now obsolete files.
2) Open eclipse chose the directory above 'code' as the workspace.
3) The create a new project from File/New/Makefile Project from Existing Code/
a) browse to the 'code' dir
b) leave the toolchain as <none>
c) say OK
4) Right click the project and tell it to build.
5) You might get some warnings
6) Repeat that process for t0, t1, t2, t3.
I did something in the structure of the project I don't really care for. t0,1,2,3 are all contained in the same file tree as the 'code' project. It makes unnecessary rebuilds. It is better to turn off each project one at a time.
After you are done playing with the code under mingw or cygwin, I suggest getting a real development environment. Use a VM running some form of linux, or a straight linux machine. Any serious effort at TDD will be slowed by the turtle like sped of those emulation environments.
