    Hi mha2908,

  3. Re: Pygame Pong: 40% CPU Ubuntu, 5% CPU Windows?

    Thanks, I didn't know that profile even existed! And, I also didn't know that globals where checked after locals. This discussion is definitely helping regarding general optimization.

  4. Re: Pygame Pong: 40% CPU Ubuntu, 5% CPU Windows?

    Interesting Wybiral, thanks for taking the time to look into what's going on "under the hood". I will keep this in mind for future Pygame projects. Ultimately, my plan was to use the...

  7. Re: Pygame Pong: 40% CPU Ubuntu, 5% CPU Windows?

    Yes my code is definitely slow at blit time, but in a way that should affect both Windows and Linux. I just wipe the whole screen and then blit every sprite, regardless of if it's moved yada yada. ...

  9. Re: HOWTO: Screensaver as a desktop background (Lazy edition)

    Just a quick note, seems Compiz doesn't expect this so you may get surprising results if you do this with Compiz effects enabled.
  10. Re: "De-Jumble" Python script: how can I make it more efficient?

    That's a good point, after reading some optimization articles I got it in my head it's faster to use index numbers to manipulate lists than items (which makes sense). However in this case I'm not...
  11. Re: "De-Jumble" Python script: how can I make it more efficient?

    ](*,) I KNEW there was a string-list function in Python. Thanks! That saved a few lines.
    OK, the new code:

    #!/usr/bin/env python
    '''Solves Jumble puzzles.

    Uses regexes to find possible...
  12. "De-Jumble" Python script: how can I make it more efficient?

    Hello all,
    I've been doing the Python Challenge, which by the way is an awesome way to get familiar with Python [/plug]. I decided to whip up a quick Python script to solve those "jumble" puzzles...
  13. Interrupting a sys.stdin.readline() in python?

    Hello all,
    I've got a quick Python question. I want to set a time limit on an input. I'm using the threading.Timer module and sys.stdin.readline() for input. The only problem is that I don't know...

    Re: Improve touchpad support...

    I also definitely agree, it's a core and relatively simple part of using a laptop.

    For me, qsynaptics (thats not G but Q synaptics) works very very well. It offers every option imaginable. The...
  16. Re: [IDEA]- Stop constant hard drive parking which will kill drives

    Regarding the comment about Vista: Yes, I have definitely heard of people having similar problems on other OS's (mostly Windows because of the number of people that use it). However, for me, it is...
  17. Re: [IDEA]- Stop constant hard drive parking which will kill drives

    When a hard drive is not in use, it is designed to physically "park" the head off the disk. This is to prevent data loss if it is dropped etc. However, for some reason, Ubuntu and other Linux...
  18. [IDEA]- Stop constant hard drive parking which will kill drives

    Since Edgy, I've been using Ubuntu and this has always been an incredibly huge yet under the radar issue. For some reason, there is a kernel bug that makes the hard drive park every 5 seconds. This...

    Re: flightgear @ feisty - working slow

    Actually, using Beryl or not makes a very big difference. Beryl utilizes your video card directly and it won't move out of the way for other 3D apps. For me, 3D games are unplayable with Beryl but...

    Re: Ubuntu Dells ARE HERE!!!

    I totally agree. I don't care about the price difference. I was going to buy a System 76 laptop (might still, will have to wait and see) and that probably would have cost more.
