Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Some of you may remember my incoherent babbling about USB throughput...
Well, turns out that its so shitty because DMA on the USB bus is disabled on most embedded kernels because it can cause system instability if you're changing USB devices all the time. This means you're only using PIO which is professor intensive and usually quite slow.
Also turns out that on the raspberry pi, the Ethernet this actually forked off the USB bus, so throughout suffers if you try to use both at the same time!
In other words, surprising no one, arm hobbyist boards are problematic when used in areas where high performance is necessary.
Our entire server/network/net connection was down this morning and we just discovered it is because my bosses son unplugged all our computers from our network/took our router. Why, you ask? You dont ask a 14 year old why. Thats 4 hours of the day lost with us thinking someone broke into our office to steal our router.
Well, technically...someone did steal the router? your boss is an accomplice, turn him in.
If you really feel bad about it, just apologize for making her/them uncomfortable, and then move on with your life - not much you can do to change the outcome here, looks like, and it really doesn't look like you did anything wrong, considering you guys were supposedly friends.
