You don't need to give a thread for each pathfinding - a small handful would be a vast improvement on... well, no threads other than the one the whole program runs in.
No, perhaps 2 threads to split the load - or as many as would be efficient for the purpose. Even a single thread for pathfinding in general would be an improvement upon a single thread for -everything- as it currently is.
Mine don't, but I still play them (though rarely).
zsnes and the like, you know
Why do you think the Constitution of the United Stated of America's first amendment is... the first amendment?
Because this behavior from the UK is hardly new...
Eventually the disenfranchised (it's not hyphenated, btw) youth will be the older generation(s) and the ones who go all crazy voting these days will not be around anymore.
Really, the problem with cattle isn't really methane release as it is the groundwater pollution, local ecological damage, and high water usage related to the mass rearing of cattle.
It's a pretty dirty and inefficient process.
If you have more than one computer, don't use your high-end gaming PC to surf the Web, write code and other low-power tasks.
It's been a long time since a computer drew as much power as it could, regardless of load.
My powerhouse gaming/computing machine draws less than 50 watts while browsing the web, and when I'm actually using the thing for something serious, it can draw almost 600.
Re: bitcoins: yep. if you can't stand your computer to be idle, run something of actual use to humanity.
5. Because everyone (for some hidden away more so than others) is a pyromaniac at heart, and FIRE!
If we didn't rear so many of them, the mess we're in might not be quite as bad as it is.
Or even this thought:
All 400 kittens don't need to pathfind in serial. Each kitten could run it's own pathfinding in it's own thread (or groups of kittens in serial, with the groups running in parallel).
You're assuming it's a single path-find that he wants to thread out.
It isn't. It's 100s to 1000s of path-finds that could all be run on their own.
There's also no excuse that can't all be handled in a different thread than the UI. No need for that to become sluggish, too, even if you kept the actual pathfinding to a single thread itself.
Or, the "Lazy Newb Pack"
The documents aren't critical. The infrastructure it refers to is.
War kills/maims a lot of people, yes... but as a species, it seems the majority of our technical innovation has been driven by conflict.
