...... THAT is why, when Mark said (quite awhile ago),"...about the only thing I need right now is Oland", I should have gotten on that quicker.
It HAS been in his sights, so...again..my bad.
Don't beat yourself up about that, and I meant to request earlier that you either A. Post a list of video cards that Mark & Frank still need sent to them, to further video card driver development, or B. set up a web page of your own with a donate button, so the rest of us can send you money to purchase and ship the video cards that Mark & Frank need.
You have done a great job of sourcing video cards for Mark and Frank for a long time, and I think it is high time for you to allow some of the rest of us to help, even if it is just with the cost of obtaining and shipping the cards, by sending you some money via PayPal, or some other money transfer service you prefer.
Thanks David, but the cost and avaibility here (even in Europe) is much better than in South Africa.
And it's been educational so far.
Also, Frank usually buys better cards for himself, and I spend some time socializing with Mark because he's a good guy.
So it's kind of casual. Didn't want to make it sound like burden.
I would like to organize to buy Mark some X64 components.
Specifically a Ryzen Gen2 cpu, some DDR4 and a decent motherboard.
You're all harping about the X64 shift, and Mark also said that faster X64 hardware would cut his compile times, making working with Oddesey and other packages easier.
After all, Bigfoot has contributed more than just graphics drivers.
