Thank God, it's weekend. Nothing about this today :D
keeped SegFaulting here. Why? read() returned -1 because of a reason still unknown to me and it didn't get checked. There's only a check for nread == 0, but not for -1... The strange thing about it is, that -1 turns into 2**32 although it's signed int... Hmm...
finally got around to continue the board-daemon. Well, yes there are tons of free WebBoards out there but they ALL.. well, all that I know, at least... havd two flaws:
- They use a scripting language (usually PHP) that connects to the database (usually MyQL) on each page hit. That is slooow and uses up valuable resources.
So where would the board Daemon be different?
make my work easier 100 times.
- It uses a daemon (UNIX-Socket) that stores all the Board- information (or at least, the recent) in Memory which is by far faster than any Harddisk depending Database.
And please don't gimme the sh*t about RAMFS. Pull the Plug and anything since the last Sync is lost.
This is of course just VaporWare right now...
