My Supervisor (no it's not Austin)

One of the secrets of X-Plane development revealed...Nala supervises my work very carefully to be sure I not introducing bugs into the rendering engine. In the event you get threading errors in the next 830 beta, you now know who to blame!

What Ben doesn't realize is that Nala programs while Ben is sleeping. That's the only reason anything gets done in the sim. :)

What setup do you use for development, Ben? If you don't mind me asking, that is... You have both PC and Mac platforms for testing? I now know you cat configuration obviously, so you don't have to detail that. :)

Hi James,

I have a dual 1.8 G5 with 2 GB of RAM and I think 600 GB of disk...that's my main develop box; the heavy memory and disk is to render global scenery. I also have a Dell P-IV box that I use to check PC compatibility and it also serves as a ProTools workstation. My laptop's a real old powerbook - minimum system requirements, so good for testing the sim on a small machine. Both monitors plug into both computers.

Chris Serio - yer a total hack!
