Just made a synthetic test to generate 128 .WAV files (large, to avoid staying in cache) that when summed, produce a nice clean sine wave, and when any are missing, produce noise. REAPER seems to have no problem playing them all at once, at least on my fast laptop or desktop, with Win7 x64. Mmmm. It's only 18MB/sec, even.
Riding the tube listening to 'tame impala - half full glass of wine', and I can't imagine that any of the other people who are listening to their headphones are enjoying themselves more than this. Not possible.
This is a good video for anybody who does software development:
Some people I know don't like Linus when they've watch this, but I think he's awesome, even though he called me stupid and ugly. He was right, I guess.
Using SVN was a great thing for me, as I'd constantly diff my work to make sure it was what I wanted. It also (obviously) enables collaboration.
Git, however, is utterly awesome, an order of magnitude more useful.
Branches in SVN were a huge pain, we rarely used them. In Git, you can actually
use them, effectively and without having to deal with nonsense, it is fantastic.
It is fast, efficient at storing data, easy to synchronize and automate backups,
I love it.
The only downside I see is that TortoiseSVN doesn't exist for it, TortoiseGit is getting there, from what I hear, but I've just been using the command line thus far.
Anyway, I'm just giddy with it. I would say life changing, but that would be overdramatic. It is work-changing, I guess.
