19:34 cotto hello
19:34 nine hi

19:35 benabik hi
19:36 cotto How's the week been?  It's great to see some movement on the threads branch.
19:38 nine Well, movement is slow but steady. Most of what I do is add new assertions to catch those cases where PMCs slip onto threads where they do not belong. But I'm positive, that I can run the Chameneos-Redux benchmark by week's end.
19:41 cotto Things like this very rarely go faster than you'd expect.
19:42 cotto any questions?
19:43 nine Yep. At least I'm not afraid anymore of Parrot's OO system ;) But it seems like the next thing I will have to learn about is bytecode handling. Is there good reading material available?
19:44 cotto I don't think that the PDDs are too far from the truth in that area.
19:45 cotto that and the disassembly tools should help you get a handle on bytecode
19:45 nine Will have a look at those, thanks. Well bytecode and everything concerning call contexts really
19:46 benabik The PDDs and packfile API aren't bad reading.
19:47 benabik whiteknight and I have both picked up a fair working knowledge of these things by now, and one of us tends to be around to answer questions.  :-)
19:50 nine benabik: thanks, I'll gladly use you :)
19:52 cotto any more questions?
20:02 cotto Let us call it "a wrap".
20:03 nine a wrap it is
