We weren't talking about the C2, we were talking about the N2.

You are comparing a 3.5 year old device with the Pi 4.
Lol.

Anyway, the Pi 4 still beats the N2 for compiling apps etc. maybe not be "better" on paper with specs but it IS better.

Have you tried odroid.c2.video.helper?
That has nothing to do with Chromium playing 4k videos. lol
Except you can use it with chromium to play 4k video. On the C2 and N2 (with crashoverride's c2play). It's not a native solution, but it works. If you don't want to play 4k from a browser, don't use it. lol

Maybe you're having trouble reading: That has nothing to do with Chromium playing 4k videos. lol

I'm 42 years old, I'm not the one that puts a ridiculous lol at the end of every post... that's you.

I've been tolerant but it's wearing thin, my son is sick, my dog died in my arms two days ago, and truthfully I've had enough. If you can't be civil without the snarkiness then do me a favor and move along.

Sorry for your loss....
I hope your son starts feeling better.
There, you made me stop lurking(after a year).
And I wish I was 42 again.

Indeed, I'm sorry for your loss...

On the bright side - you're much younger than I thought. Based on your github handle and your son's age I thought you were over 54 years old. Let me be the first to say you look at least 10 years younger :)

Thank you for the kind words, it was a difficult thing to lose my dog right now. I actually had a panic attack today just thinking about it, I've never had a panic attack before but now I know how terrible it is for people that suffer from it.

I would give anything for some sense of normality, but I know it can always be worse.

You've been under a lot of stress for a long time, so I guess that's normal.
You can't really appreciate dull/routine life until you go through something dramatic like you went through. And when life is dull for a while you start worrying that something bad is bound to happen... That's life, I guess - constantly giving you something to worry about, no matter how good/bad your life is.
Maybe the "benefit" of all this is that you skip the standard midlife crisis and don't have to replace the family stationwagon with a sports bike (at least that's how Holywood depicts it... When I'll get there I might become a rebel and specialize in C, like @crashoverride did) :)

some people just have no idea what painstaking stuff life can throw at a person...in all or any facet`s of life ..they have no idea because they have never had to deal with the "bad" of life...

So if I purchase a N2, will I be able to use it to:
A: open a wormhole?
B: travel through time?
C: play World of Warcraft?
D: sit on my desk and juggle electrons?


Tvan :D
