look and see - many look but few see

That Brendan is a moron and hypocrite
I spent many days arguing with him about going to and from pmode to do BIOS interrupts, was OK and worked well, for things like graphic mode changing etc.
And he would answer with stuff like this:
Quote:
Let me be brutally honest here. Disabling interrupts and switching back to real mode to change video modes is something that a lazy novice would do. It isn't something any decent programmer should consider or recommend, unless it's done under strict conditions (e.g. during boot only, where you don't need to worry about other devices).


Cheers,

Brendan
