Re: Ramblings of crazed multi-threaders

Cool, I'm doing my first experiments with the built-in thread and mutex commands in FB. I guess it's hard to ask meaningfull questions before you have at least a fundamental understanding on what's going on.

this is one of those "if you have to ask, the answer is no"-questions this requires extensive knowledge even for a "simplified version" besides the complaints your ISP will receive during your testing and implementation, you'll need to manage an extremely large database of where ...

Re: Ramblings of crazed multi-threaders
