I've noticed my posts disappear / reappear whether or not I am replying. I have noticed 2 replies show in one area and 3 in the other. I doubt that it's my browser cache as all my data is cleared on exit.
I am doing some data visualization, in which I need to load in an arbitrary number of integers. They will be 16-bit data values, which will be used to represent using a number of different bitmap schemes, such as grayscale, falsecolor, ect. I also want to have a progress indicator, which means I want to load in the data a chunk at a time, in an example case, 2048 integers, making up one line, at which point I want to update my progress indicator class instance variable. If I could read and write my line data object to a file that would be fine, but I don't want to load an entire file without user feedback.
The short story: I, we need to be able to save single bytes, integers, reals, etc, without using Java libraries.
Although I lack diplomacy and tact in these matters, I hope that the message and spirit, of what I am stating, because I feel that Processing will be a better language for it.
