Not that it's something that the kernel can't handle but i don't know in which load status the system is, if i can avoid it i prefer to do so, right? After all you are all expressing this concept when reviewing my patches if you solve a problem you shouldn't add a new one. ...

I'm displeased if my message wasn't clear, i thought that i was expressing clearly the concept, i'll be more short and coincided next time going directly to the point. I wondered what you were talking about. But I guess you were just mixing up ports with application loopers (the latter get the broadcasts, and only accept messages). I was talking about looper being based on ports so there's potential of ...

[haiku-development] Allow BRoster to watch only some signature (Dario Casalinuovo)

Hello, i'm referring to the changes i proposed in #11922, is there any reason (that i can't see) for having the roster send obligatorily notifications for all apps running? In the first place it looked to me a design flaw, and really i can't understand why it wasn't foregone, also fastly looking at registrar it seems shouldn't be a problem to extend the Watcher to have a list of teams and check if the BMessenger is interested to all teams or only to some. Yes it's a very little bit of computational cost added, since we should check this for every Watcher, but in the average case this isn't really relevant asymptotically. Instead there's the cost of having all those ports and ...

I see you used your exclude region feature to cut out the test window itself, otherwise you'd see the recursive out to infinity view of the whole screen (which happens if you run the VNC client on the same machine as the server). Yes, though the update events were still being fired for that occurrence, so I'm remedying that with a bit of a redesign. ...

There's a dirty rectangle algorithm in the VNC library code that compares rectangular areas from the current bitmap with the previously transmitted data and only sends the changed pixels. However, reading the whole screen to find those dirty areas is slow on some video boards (it's actually done in smaller segments to improve response time), and even slower with the BScreen copy-the-whole-screen-to-a-bitmap technique. ...

That could be an interesting way of doing it, which would also speed up screen reading since it would reside in main RAM, not the occasionally much slower video memory. On the other hand, it would be simpler for the user to understand a program that merely sho
