This post is pretty old! Opinions and technical information in it are almost certainly oudated. Commands and configurations will probably not work. Consider the age of the content before putting any of it into practice.
Operating Systems yesterday was kind of funny, in a sad way. Half the class had their notebooks out for the class period, and not for the usual powerpoint-following. My neighbor noticed that the prof was going over ways to protect critical sections, and he decides he needs to go on a library hunt right then instead of standing the chance of accidentally learning something. The person a row ahead of me spent most of the class playing emulated games.
Note to self: don’t compute in class unless you’re taking notes.
Also with the help of CapnBry on the SA forums, I got textured sprites working in USFWeather, so it’ll get pretty next time I work on it: I didn’t feel like thumbnailing this 1mb image.
