Question: Is it possible to use luajit instead of lua in reascript? For performance

    We've looked at it but doesn't seem too worth the build-system-integration effort (if you have some performance critical bit you could try using EEL2, it doesn't require garbage collection so there's a win too?)

Question: I have Dell Inspiron 1012 Mini, which is a very old laptop came with Windows XP. 1 GB Ram. Atom processor. I upgraded to Windows 7 for Google Meet. But it's stuttering & lagging too much. What should I do? Is there any way to run Google Meet in Windows XP? Or in Ubuntu or any other Linux? My main priority is Google Meet running in any browser. Or is there any app for it which can run in XP or 7 or any Linux?

Question: so,iyo.. should we judge a nations "wealth" upon corrupt fractional reserve banking/fiat currencies and associated ideologies,OR, by the health of the land/sea inhabitants and the current state of mineral/biodiversities?
Asked by unnamed1 (2.26.163.x) on November 9 2021, 7:45pm

    (edited): There's an awful lot of opinion in that question, which I won't begin to unpack. Having said that, I imagine if judging was done purely in the abstract, should include the nation's debts to the rest of the planet (e.g. CO2 emissions, past damage, etc etc), its own people, etc etc, but if judging for any practical purposes then the metric would need to be relevant to the practical purpose being considered.

Question: what drove you to create reaper and winamp?
Asked by Fishy (5.13.107.x) on November 2 2021, 5:08pm

    I started playing around with music players on DOS a few years before I saw my first mp3 (see: http://1014.org/code/oldbits/DACE/ )... The drive was to listen to music on the computer, since it was cool and mod/xm players were awesome too. I started getting into music and recording in the early 00s, which led to REAPER :)
Question: These's a funny thing in Chinese group, sort of a consensus. I want to ask Justin to confirm it. If someone want a new function or improve some function in REAPER. Before we post a Feature Request, we will talk about if Justin need it. Is REAPER's function depend on Justin's hobby or needs? Is that true?
Asked by littleTee (116.23.172.x) on November 2 2021, 7:38am
Reply on November 2 2021, 8:05pm:
    If it's something I want to use then that's a plus, but we do add plenty of things that I wouldn't use (I use a small percentage of the features day to day)
Question: hey- so reaper has experimental features/functions.. is there,or,how long is the actual time frame for these to be fully "developed"?
Asked by unnamed1 (2.26.163.x) on November 1 2021, 5:11pm
Reply on November 2 2021, 8:04pm:
    It depends, we see how things go
