Hello World


In the world of JSE, I've been tweaking all week, trying to squeeze as much out of the engine as I can.
I *think* I've probably got things running as fast as I possibly can, but then I thought that last week, too, and look what happened.

With just a few nips and tucks, I got things running a little faster. Then I tried changing the switch-method, and things improved a whole lot more.

It's still slow when you try to do anything beyond simple loops, but things are always improving, and now it can just about manage to do some nice things on a lot of setups, which is great.

More tweaking to come.. If I can find ways to tweak it!

Animation Tool

Pakz releases a tool he wrote back in 2003.
Can you help fix the slight quirks that have appeared in the (almost) 2 decades since he wrote it?

MicroStudio OpenSource

The language MicroStudio (which is a bit like the thing I've been making, but with upside down Y-co-ordinates) has been made OpenSource.
If you're looking to do something impressive with Javascript, this might be a better solution to all the faffing about I've been doing.
I'm not bitter.
Nope.. Not me..

Heatwaves Suck.

Global Warming's going crazy.
There's been extreme heat in the UK and giant floods in Germany, the Netherlands and China.
It's almost as if the world has gotten sick of our shit, and is desperate to kill us off by fire, flood and plague.

Meanwhile, Bezos and Branson are both trying desperately to escape the planet's wrath. Perhaps they're the ones being targeted by the planet?
Hmmm.

socoder.net/?GotoPost=79516

Yep, everything is fine..

Stay Safe.
Stay Indoors.
Keep the Fan on.
And if you're heading into space, be sure to keep the helmet on.

Cellars

ProHiScore wonders about Cellars in the UK.
Are Cellars common in your neck of the woods?
What sort of house do you live in?

Snack Stop

Jay buys some crisps, and makes another snacking thread.
Perhaps there should be a snack section in the forum?

NVidia Logan and Parker

ProHiScore brings word of a new Dev platform that focuses on NVidia's latest Tegra3 chipsets.
Arm based, but OpenGL ready, the chips look ready for some super-handy AMD based stuffage.
Hopefully newer Windows portable devices can make use of this stuff, and run cheap and clean and with reduced power requirements.

Anyone that didn't like Thomas The Tank Engine must've been some sort of cave dwelling, spoon whittling gonk.
