Microsoft To Banish Memcpy()

Safiire Arrowny Ban = operator also (486 comments)

If a developer can't do "if (sizetocopy = sizeofdstbuffer)"

Uh oh, we'd better ban the = operator too, so no one can mistake it for == in an if statement ever again.

In IE8 and Chrome, Processes Are the New Threads

Safiire Arrowny Share nothing procesesses (397 comments)

Share nothing processes which communicate via message passing is the future as far as I can tell.

Not only does that do away with most terrible multithreaded programming problems, but it also can let you write an application which does not need to execute all on the same processor or even the same machine, think concurrency, cloud computing, 1000 core processors, etc.

Look up the way Erlang programs work. Actor based programming is pretty sweet after you wrap your head around it.

Wii Twilight Princess savegame hack released

Safiire Arrowny Safiire Arrowny writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Safiire writes "Over at TehSkeen and WiiBrew you may now download the Twilight Princess save game exploit and try it for yourself. There is also a video of the hack running on YouTube. This seems to be a very preliminary release as there is of course no home brew available to run, however Wii Linux can't be that far off. Not all copies of Zelda respond successfully to this exploit so you may wish to check yours."
