    Could it? yes. Will it? Probably not?
Question: Can you implement question numbers here? So that we can know how many questions are asked till now. However, we can see that by clicking on "older questions" and the question numbers are revealed in the url. My last question number is 4713. Maybe, it will look odd, like, "Question 13579: blah blah" XD

Question: Seeing the current usage of Metal, wondering have you looked into Vulkan API as it seems to run on top of Metal and seems cross platform?
Asked by nofish (94.134.90.x) on July 9 2019, 9:15pm
Reply on July 10 2019, 3:32am:
    I haven't, but the current use is just about implementing basic OS-level blitting in a not-insanely-slow-way.
Question: Most people can't hear beyond 15 Khz, especially people of age 25 and onwards. Then why bothering more than 128 kbps mp3 quality? Because 128 kbps cut-off all frequencies after 16 Khz. Why people are so crazy for 320 kbps mp3, which cut-off after 22 Khz? Rarely there are people, who can listen beyond 20 Khz, even let say, 18 Khz.
Asked by Abhi (117.197.7.x) on July 9 2019, 10:56am
Reply on July 9 2019, 3:39pm (edited at July 9 2019, 3:40pm):
    mp3 at 128kbps is also often perceptibly lossy in lower frequencies. So people are into higher bitrates not just for higher frequencies, but for improved perceived quality all around.
Question: Justin, it's been awhile. Hope you're doing good. Since the old IRC server is down, what do you think about making a discord to get the old #nullsoft crew back together?

    Nobody was ever on there anyway... email? twitter? The company has a Slack, if you'd like to come to our #irc-refugees channel send me an email.
Question: Can we expect new theme from White Tie?
Asked by Bryan (76.86.126.x) on July 8 2019, 7:26am
Reply on July 8 2019, 11:40pm:
    Yes, there will be/is/etc.
Question: Windows phones are dead. Windows store is like post-apocalyptic film scene (even famous apps like Facebook, Whatsapp has like only 100 reviews?). I think, soon Microsoft will end its Windows Store in Windows 10 and it will again become like Windows 7. Do you think Microsoft comes to end? If yes, then what's the future of Windows OS? Will it be replaceable by another OS, which can compete MacOS?
Asked by Abhi (104.131.188.x) on July 5 2019, 3:25pm
Reply on July 6 2019, 3:11am:
    And yet somehow MS is now worth over $1T? So maybe Windows store is bad, but they've still got it?
Question: Will reaper 6 be entirely different from all other reaper Daws
Asked by Bryan (76.86.126.x) on July 5 2019, 12:34pm
Reply on July 6 2019, 3:10am:
    No it will be entirely not different! But first, 5.980.

Question: In your landoleet.org website, in 'whatsnew-dev.txt, you have used '+', '-' and '#' for updates. What does these symbols means?
Asked by Abhi (117.207.136.x) on July 3 2019, 8:31am
Reply on July 3 2019, 2:35pm:
    + is major changelog line, -/# are lines that will be in development builds but not releases (usually represent changes from dev build to dev build, or very minor things).
