    Moon Books Project Returns, No Longer Free

    Well that's annoying. Apparently whoever reported that news at gonintendo didn't really take the time to actually look at moon books. The only thing I can guess is that they went to moon books, and immediately attempted to download something. There has been a 'gold' system initiated, where...

    Moon Books is back!

    The files are still there, but they all need to be re-added. I'll put Edgar Allan Poe on the top of my to-do list.

Not only will we offer all the great classic literature, comics and movies freely (and legally) on the NDS, but we are also building a new unique community, with hosted blogs, and other cool things...

    The Moon Books Project is down, hax0red?

    Due to unforeseen, and possibly malicious events The Moon Books Project is down. I'm open for suggestions for the form of rebirth Moon Books should take. I'm really thinking of digging my teeth into Elgg.

    Creepy/Scary topic

    Here's something I find creepy. Oh, and it's also a shameless plug for my new website. It's a radio show, starring Boris Karloff, called CatWife. CatWife at Science Fiction Radio Theater

    What's is your Mario Kart Wii Friend code? Don't have one. Who is stronger Spider-man or Batman? Technically Spider-Man, although Batman is cooler. South Park or Naruto? South Park. Do you have a good dental plan? No... :|

    What's your general opinion about punks (as in subcultural meaning)? I place them up there with hippies, goths and squares. Much higher than say... emos. What's the most shameful thing you ever did? Here is a link to it: My shameless attempt to generate traffic If I turn to robot, do you...

    it's better to learn on your own, it goes much faster than the snail pace they teach you at in school

  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    with that all your assembler base will actually work

  • Coto @ Coto:
    even on embedded systems, without a damned debugger

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly

    @The Real Jdbye quite idiotic and frankly, bu
    llshit points as usual you make. Not only because you have no idea what you're talking about, but also because there is proof (both i've seen and maintained) in regards to C and hand-written assembler code, and the speed gain is simply over half the framerate.

    gbaemu4ds's C ARM and THUMB CPU emulator and GBARunner2's ARM and THUMB handcoded assembly. Just run Yoshi's Island GBA and compare it by yourself.

    or SnemulDS's C CPU Core vs SnemulDS SnezziDS ARM core. The first running at about 45% (half the speed) vs ~105% (full speed)

  • Coto @ Coto:
    yeah, keep believing -Ofast will make everything faster.
