This is the absolutely WORST external case I've ever tried!

If you set it to RAID 0, and one of the two drives fails: you lose EVERYTHING on BOTH drives.

that is probably not the fault of the enclosure, because all other controllers will give you the same result.

if you need redundancy, use redundancy.

If you set it to RAID 1, so that if one of the two drives fails, you still have access to your data, you find that the data on the good drive is UNAVAILABLE until you remove the good drive and put it in a good external case.

that is also to be expected. when one of two mirrored drives is not available, you must replace it with new one in order to start the automatic rebuild. that is how redundancy (and therefore data integrity) is realized.

operating half a raid composite is like trying to drive a bicycle with only one wheel.

even photoshop required it (but not sure up to which version)

I mean: a FAT patch of a toolbox trap or OS trap.

A FAT code resource won't work here because I need to get multiple symbols from the PPC part while a FAT resource has only one entry point.

If I read asynchronously and it doesn't complete, then the thread blocks and I call Yield in a loop until it completes, but then I use all CPU time. If I call WaitNextEvent with sleep time 0, then I'm close to using all CPU time. If I call WaitNextEvent with sleep time 1, then I wait 167 milliseconds and I can read only 960 K per second.

Suppose that I can do 8000 asynchronous calls per second. I do now 8000 asynchronous reads of 16K without bothering about the result. Then I call WaitNextEvent with sleep time 60. Have you heard anyone try this?

Other tactic: I do 1 asynchronous read of 16K without bothering about the result. Then I call WaitNextEvent with sleep time 6. When it completes the completion routine does the next asynchronous read of 16K without bothering about the result and so on. Have you heard anyone try this?

There's a similar problem with Acrobat and Reader. There you have a find dialog. If you type in this dialog, in some circumstances the characters won't appear in the window because they are sent to somewhere else. They use a GNEFilter and when they quit, this filter is not removed, which may block other programs from removing their GNEFilter, because if they do they will crash.

I remember vaguely something about floating windows. Perhaps the error occurred only in floating windows with a text edit field?

The Keyboard control panel may be disabled. This eliminates one GNEFilter.

I'll remove the feature "Wait until 3 seconds idle". Then it doesn't require IdleTime INIT. This eliminates another GNEFilter.

Have a 001 but never rack mounted it so the screws are probably long gone. I'll take a look in the morning. Somebody around here must have one racked up I would think!

DAW - Plugins (VST,TDM,RTAS,MAS) / Plugsound OS9 Installers?
« Last post by d97 on August 15, 2018, 08:13:19 PM »
I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the correct spot - or if I'm allowed to post requests, periods - but I was wondering if anybody has the OS9 Installers for the Plugsound suite of instruments.  It turns out that the earliest version that I have is 1.8.7 - which is their first go for OSX.

So... good news. ORB Tools R11 is indeed the version that supports OS 9.2.2! I should have them within a few days, thanks to that suggestion. Once I receive them, perhaps I can add them here in the future in case anyone else is searching for them.
