So my email was up on the 'ol screen and my gf walked by and saw:

I'm surprised that username's allowed tbh. I'd expect it would be banned on the basis of being "inappropriate".

If it were the other way around, your message would be considered really sexist. :?

Hey, it's your own fault. What are you doing PMing someone called Love4Boobies over the Internet in the first place? Who knows what kind of maniac is on the other end?

PS: Now I can brag to my friends that I almost wrecked a relationship. I'll leave out the details.

Reminded me of a joke: She broke up with him because he'd bought a diamond something for a Bulgarian girl.

In Russian this device is colloquially called болгарка, which means a Bulgarian female.

The most surprising thing is that you have a gf.

If something miniscule like this is putting your relationship on the line, you seriously have to work on that relationship. :D

I did so actively once (five days before the scheduled marriage), and was part of the "gathering of courage" another time. Both times the guy involved was a major a**, so good riddance. The experience is overrated, though.

I have more than one, does that bring up the average? :lol:

Do you prefer running kernel services in single address space or are context switches part of your security design? As an OSDev question, of course.

You can't hide the fact that there are other processes running and that resources are multiplexed between them.

If you don't try to hide it, everyone consents to it up front, and you are fair about the possibility of processes taking resources from elsewhere as well, you can get a smoothly running system with a richer feature set for everyone. Cooperation and communication are key, though -- constant load balancing and feedback is required.

As an OSDev answer, of course.

I think what he's trying to say is, are your processes serviced concurrently or in parallel?

That reminds me... I had the brilliant idea a few years ago for object-oriented porn, described with "interfaces" and "methods" and such. Like most of my ideas, I never could decide if it was truly brilliant, or if I was just in serious need of therapy...

I think your vocabulary just failed you. "Concurrently or in parallel"?

Let's say I am having only one process active while in the critical path, simply because none of the processes involved was really designed for full parallelism. It's more a cooperative time-sharing. 8)

OK, this has gone fishy enough. Further questions as to my process management architecture please via PM. ;-)
