in reply to Name Space

I started using "GianT" when I started DJing 1995. Then I used it on IRC and for playing games (quake) where giant was a well known nick after a while.
Well nowadays I sometimes wish I would have chosen another nick, because when people see someone with the nick "giant", they probably think "oh that guy thinks that he is the greatest/best". So I thought pretty often about changing my nick, but I would need new email etc. etc. etc. so I've still kept it.
Also giant fits nice to me because I'm pretty large (2m), so when people meet me in real-life they always are like "oh now I understand why you call yourself giant!".

That's my story...

[ambrus]: (Alternately a deep source dive and then rewrite that event loop to make it better, and then as a bonus you get an idle method.)
[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
