The <off topic> thread


Recommended Posts

Oddly enough, that's the first Rick Roll played straight on this forum. At least, that I can recall.

I don't have the url memorized, but I do know that the beginning is oHg. It always cautions me when I see that. Sozo's reply confirms it. :-)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Oh, Simon, you're a tricky guy. I click over, hoping it's the Cakeroll video...but, alas.

I still like this old classic, though: http://tinyurl.com/673fj5

My Pentium 4 test system died :oops: :cry: I was having to short the pins on the motherboard to simulate a power-on button press, and I guess I shorted the wrong side of the pinout and now it no longer boots. So I'm using an Athlon 64 3200+ for my low-end test bed.

Maybe I should get one of these, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813121359 ... with a stick of RAM it's only $100!

Edit: Ordered.

Been spending a lot of time optimizing the new selection outline and interior renderers for v3.5.

Interesting choice. Will you be using it for performance benchmarking? :wink:

Yes. It's okay if the new selection renderer is a little slower on a single-core, low-end CPU -- I'm shooting for multicore performance scaling, after all. But it can't be 1/2 the performance, for instance. Within 20% is what I'm shooting for.

Ah, ok. So this will help you gauge performance on lower end systems, same as the P4 system.

Would this be for new plugins designed by existing designers?
