      I'd just like to reiterate how much I'm enjoying the "Going Deep" series. I'll probably never have practical use for the IO Manager, but it's good to know what's going on behind the scene. It's like reading the Petzold book on how to program Windows the first time.

      Very interesting video. Also the link given at the end of the video doesn't seem to be valid.

      This “Going Deep” series is amazingly helpful. It adds a lot of depth to my overall understanding of the technology for which I am developing solutions and strengthens my technical knowledge, which is helpful when discussing business solutions with clients. It also gives me additional arguments when competing with other technologies for those same clients. (The performance discussion was particular helpful.) Thanks you guys!

      Yikes - please stop with the ink. I know it's cool to write it out, but consider this

      - Reading ink is like reading words in all caps. Our brain is so attuned to reading normal computer text that it has to shift gears to parse the person's handwriting and understand what's written.

      - I bet you could have typed that out faster

      I know this is OT and should belong on that thread about C9's ink support - but couldn't resist when I noticed how I stopped scanning through the page when I came to Charles' handwriting and read it carefully

      Re: accessibility and crawlers; recognizer-enabled clients will store alt and title text with the ink image...

      Interesting feedback. Thanks.

      Note that it took significantly more time to type this reply with a stylus than to pen it...

      The point is that I have a Tablet and inking on it is more natural than typing. c

       I have a basic doubt. Whether memory to memory transfer using system DMA controller is possible in windows?
      If not why?
