in reply to Name Space

Being extremely paranoid, I needed a nick that would adequately disguise my true identity. So I came up with the rather cunning plan of prefixing my real name with the letters "Mc" :)

And the real story is that Darren is a pretty boring and common name, so I'm forever running into nick collisons whenever I try to choose it as a nick|handle. So I usually fall back on McDarren or MrDarren or something similar.

The odd thing is that Darren is not (yet) taken on PM. I have no idea why I didn't use it - perhaps I just assumed that it would have already been taken. *shrug*

[ambrus]: The 0.2 seconds wakeup is likely a workaround for some bug, but I can't guess what bug that is.
[ambrus]: It's been there since Prima 1.00 iirc
[Corion]: Hmmm... Weird. Maybe it needs that for doing its timers or something. Still weird.
[Corion]: But I guess I'll find out soonish, as my application seems to use Prima for more than just displaying the OpenGL output soonish ;))
[ambrus]: No, I think the timers are handled fine in the event loop, as far as I can see.
[Corion]: So far, I liked Prima quite well as it simply seems to do what I want even if it has an upside-down coordinate system. But it installs from CPAN out of the box and is cross-platform
