First: is this an OK place to talk about Tweak? Or should I be looking
for a dedicated mailing list? Perhaps the Croquet list? If this is an
inappropriate place, let me know nad I'll moe on outl
Second: What's the deal with the slowness of Tweak? Does anyone have any
idea? Let me be more specific: this is on Pocket PC. A pretty slow PDA
too, a 206 MHz StrongARM iPAQ 3650 running the Pocket PC 2002 update.
Morphic isn't great on this device, not in anything newer than 2.8 or 3.0,
but it does go. Tweak is impossibly slow. I am using a TweakOnly image I
found that has no morphic or MVC, just Tweak. You tap on "File" in the
menu bar at the top and it takes 45 seconds or so and the File menu itself
pops up. Similar for most GUI actions.
What could be going on here? Does Tweak just need that much CPU/bus
bandwidth/RAM, or is it something else going on? I'm using the latest PPC
image that is on Yoshiki's site. Is there a plugin or specially built-vm
I need that is missing? One that doesn't exist for PPC perhaps?
My Zaurus C760 was stolen :( So I just this iPAQ from work that we used to
test webpages on. This was before I worked there full time and enlightened
them with the idea of just using the MS PPC SDK's emulator. But now it's
been recruited, relunctantly, into the Dynapad Civil Service. Along these
lines, if anyone is interested in donating a PDA or funds to that end to
get me back into the Dynapad effort, please do not hesitate to email me.
Any help is appreciated GREATLY.
The connection here is that I've had some inquiries from folks who also
have an interest in Tweak about using Tweak as the basis for the new
Dynapad. And I know I'm quite interested in evaluating that option.
and last: Thanks everyone! And have a great Christmas (if that's your
thing) and a great New Year (if you happen to use the same calendar
system that I do)!
