19 year hiatus from writing (computers for Universal, Disney, Sony, etc.). Rebooted writing 12/12/12, as of 4/8/13 I've read 5255 pages of screenplays, read 4506 pages of writing books and written 79 pages. spreadsheet = motivational tool.
It was very useful to have this event available.
Hello Paul, I read a book about people framed for crimes they didn't commit. Then found over 400 have been proven innocent after 1-37 years in jail. The group proving innocence believes based on their experience 40,000 in jail committed no crime so the guilty are free to commit more crime. I have a partial production package but need a writer, writer director to work together as a team. Will an established company let you write and direct projects?
Welcome to the group, Paul!
I also read a bit about the double-checked locking optimization. I'm more puzzled now, because wikipedia says it's fixed and OK as of Java 1.5. So is it fixed or unfixed? The way I learned it, you had to use a volatile variable to ensure that the thread interacted properly with the JMM. But isn't everyone up to Tiger anyway, by now? Surely people aren't running on 1.4. What's the deal?
