    Yeah that demo is great, so funny how people go retro. If you could send it back in time you'd be a total GOD (though I suppose that guy is still a CGA god). Also 8088 Corruption is pretty solid.

    Controls how much extra space is allocated when you use Resize(), to avoid realloc() calls when resizing a little here and there.

    We have VCAs now, so you can use them instead.

Question: Can we expect a retina version of Reaper soon? Any thoughts on this? Will you move Reaper to a vector skin engine or just implement @2x images? Lately it's been a pain in the ass to look at Reaper, to much blurriness... btw, this is the coolest website ever. [permalink]

    It should work itself out, I think, and if needed we can always maintain it too. Edit: sounds like Tim returns, yay!

    I don't use whatsapp, I'm all for open source/encrypted apps, but all of it sort of irrelevant in that nobody I know uses it.

    A bicycle maybe? Or on the subway.

Question: Why are developers so reluctant to talk about the direction of their software? Are you tempted sometimes to tell us what's next for REAPER? Do you have to strongly advise your other team members to keep tight lipped about what the team is currently working on? [permalink]

Reply on May 17 2016, 4:56pm:
    We aren't tight lipped at all, but personally I prefer not to commit to doing things before I've done them, saves disappointment and frustration.

Question: Today in my CS class, we learned how to use recursive functions to determine whether a word is a palindrome? When my teacher explained to the class what a palindrome was, I immediately thought about my dream girl's name, Ara. What's your favorite palindrome and do you frequently use recursive functions?

    I don't have a favorite palindrome. Recursion -- I wouldn't use it for palindrome detection, but in many instances it is useful! e.g. eel_string_match.
