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

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.

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) :)

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?

Sorry that you're having a hard time and about your son. I recently lost a cat that was a family pet that all of us cherished. it's hard but life goes on...
Also, sorry about the "snarkiness" (I wouldn't have called it that but hey :P) and yeah you're right, I tend to put lol when I don't know what else to say.

:) :) :) :)

PS: I thought you were a lot older than 42.

My son passed away on October 27, I haven't been around much since then but I continue to visit and post here and there trying to keep busy.

Just wanted to thank everyone who messaged me and gave their support over this past year, it helped to have friends. Especially @mad_ady and @phaseshifter, thank you.

I was hoping he was making a slow, but steady recovery... I can't imagine how you're coping, you and your family had a really hard year...
I hope we can keep you occupied on the forum so the healing process for you can start sooner...

Thank you all, it has been the most difficult time in my life. Watching your son wither away while fighting so hard to survive is like slowly having flesh removed, wounds that scar deep that take years to heal. My son Cody turned 21 a few months ago but there was little celebration, no accolades, just another day in the hospital to him. He went 10 months without eating or drinking due to having no stomach, had over 30 surgeries in the same amount of time, his spirit was never broken though his body was.

I will always remember his thirst for life and honor his memory, he was the best son a father could ask for and his life touched so many to be such a young man. He truly was a warrior and I can only aspire to have such strength and courage he exhibited in his short time on Earth.
