I am pleased to report that using NVidia driver 304.22 along with a 3.2.0-28 kernel and powermizer set to the lowest level ( always ) is stable and I can now once again play starcraft 2 using wine without my pc getting a blank screen every 10 minutes ..!

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf Screen section follows..!

Section “Screen”
Identifier “Screen0″
Device “Device0″
Monitor “Monitor0″
DefaultDepth 24
Option “NoLogo” “True”
Option “Coolbits” “1″
Option “RegistryDwords” “PowerMizerEnable=0×1; PerfLevelSrc=0×2222; PowerMizerLevel=0×3; PowerMizerDefault=0×3; PowerMizerDefaultAC=0×3″
SubSection “Display”
Depth 24

In other news since it is summer and I dont have many things to do..
I decided to rewrite from scratch AmmarServer ( http server ) for linux ..
The outdated windows version of AmmarServer can be found in my legacy site ..
In this new one I will be including keep-alive support , a better code layout , the ability to create virtual files via linking an arbitrary executable to the web server , and automatic caching web page queries to the memory.. This should be particularly handy to be used as a server in conjuction with the raspberry pi.. ( when I get my hands on one ) ..

The thing about virtual files is that I would like to make a virtual file called camera.jpg that when requested by the client would trigger an other frame grabbing application that would make a .jpg conversion of the image on the fly and serve it directly to the client without reading or writing to the flash memory/disk .. That way linking everything together all possible delays will be shoved off..!

AmmarServer github repository can be found here

Thats it for now..
