Smiley LOL
Oh gawd, I'm working an info booth right now but I couldn't help a little nerdy lol at that one :mrgreen:

On a more serious note, I'm reading this thread with interest because I need to learn more about this process and how it really works myself. So thanks for the answer and explanations Smiley Happy

So if this is the case, and I have 30+ images to load would you recommend having a pool of roURLRequestTransfer objects that I create and then alloc use for one for each image needed whenever I need?

If they all need to be downloaded asynchronously, then you'd either need to create a separate request for each, or create a block of 5-10 that you re-use after the previous transfer completes.

You'd find some languages that are less horrible yet many that are more horrible. Looking for exact match in "horribleness" is like comparing float/doubles for == equality. Somewhat more seriously, B/S i pretty decent language, i would's cluster it somewhere with Perl and Tcl. And as subjective opinions go, i'd say Java the Hutt is much more horrible


I just looked and there doesn't seem to be Wikipedia page for the VS.H.Q*. There's some homework for you EnTerr.
