C++ If this or that?

Tbh, you're spending too much time looking into something that saves practically sod all. Honestly, from almost 25 years in the industry, and working on extremely low level devices with almost no memory whatsoever, I know you're really looking in <snip>

You're really looking in the wrong place if you're hoping to improve performance. And using a switch statement would result in essentially the same thing - the asm equivalent of a whole bunch of IF statements - 18 of them.

"Works fine, but I know that requires 4 lookups of fn.. "

No - it will short-circuit as Tom stated above. No point trying to optimise that to something else as you're already in highly-optimised assembly land.

Headphone Selection

9th August 2018

I find I prefer to pay a little more than budget because I use them day in day out. Looking around, those 598's priced at 92 quid is a bargain as they used to be a hell of a lot more. The replacement (which doesn't change it by much) will set you<snip>

My fave headphones died a death so I got some cheaper Senn's a while back: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06WLGRYSF

For "us" lot, there's not issue. Seriously, there's nothing. This is for businesses/corporations only.

I really regret not backing the Next, but having been burned a few times I will never back another kickstarter/indiegogo ever. Here's hoping they are able to put these up for sale because I'd actually really like one.

This is for commercial organisations when they make use of Oracle Java - installing a license manager just like many other commercial pieces of software now.

I'd recommend playing around with Tinkercad first. It's a piece of piss to use and you can import STL files and fiddle with them in there.

Meshmixer is free and really good but takes ages to figure out. I just use it for simple things.
