Re: Screenshots

The ZX81 screen only contains 256x192 pixels without attributes, so nothing can be lost in a conversion to SCR (using black INK/white PAPER). Although it would be even better to store ZX81 screens as a simple sequence of 24x32=768 bytes (one byte for each character on screen). Perhaps we can convin...

Re: Screenshots

There is only one viewer supporting BSC format as far as I know.

As far as I remember there is no editor for this mode. I can w...

Re: New WoS and ZXDB

Nobody wants to roll in mud really. It's taking time and forces which could be spent on something better. But. If Einar just remains silent, then Lee will be the only one who speaks, and he will speak a lot, he wont just stop. I have the same experience from the very similar situation: if Einar rest...

Re: New WoS and ZXDB

My thoughts: There wont be any peaceful resolution. Lee won't admit that he has used a lot of ZXDB information. No apologies would be made. Current WOS team is lost to common sense or logical actions. We need to accept this and move on, that's the new reality we are living in: 1. There won't be one ...

Re: New WoS and ZXDB

PHP-FPM can be used instead of mod_php. Mod_php is an Apache extension that put the full PHP runtime into each Apache child process. I don't think SC uses PHP-FPM, but HHVM instead. Which is a facebook-optimised PHP runtime. But you still need some http server, whether it is FPM or mod_php. And it ...

Re: New WoS and ZXDB

Offloading PHP from Apache into a process manager means apache child process can be much smaller. Not every request needs a PHP engine -- static assets certainly don't. So you can get Apache to deal with the static asset requests (and redirections, ssl handshakes, authentication, etc.), and proxy t...

Re: New WoS and ZXDB

errr... no. PHP-FPM doesn't run through an apache process. It's a standalone process manager. Once you're on the process manager stage, you'd also realise there's no point running Apache, and instead run NginX. And Nginx handles concurrent requests a heck of a lot better than Apache, lightweight an...
