01:15:16graeme7 You've got a TODO about the size of the audio asset struct. How important do you think it is to keep structs compact? -- (Casey undoes the size shrinking of LoadedBitmap, since now it's included in the asset header and not in the asset slot (blackboard))

01:21:19breadthofhair Is the heap and the stack just different sections of RAM, managed by the OS? Also, if so, do different programs ever share stack space? Would you please shed some light on this or point me to some video of yours that I missed?

01:27:47captainduh So something like this can't happen? Asset evict function is called, release happens, unlock happens, thread context switches to loader, something gets loaded into that slot with some header, thread context switches back, header is cleared to 0

01:30:37jameswidman Is it possible that, due to the kernel caching disk accesses, we're paying more than once for each asset? Like, after we evict an asset, is another copy of it likely to be cached in physical memory because of the OS's caching of the pack file?
