"...What would happen if we traded the fireworks for functionality, and the modern, lazy coding shortcuts for good old fashioned optimized programming? I think we'd find our modern hardware could do far more than we ever imagined...."
Preach it brother!
You'de be amazed how a well written (but not optimized to death) software can do on a relatively recent hardware. When you optimize, things can become borderline insane.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
