Hi Sharriff, 1. Thanks for the link to the SocketServer site. Interesting stuff. 2.Theoretically (I haven't actually timed it) LIST! is faster when it comes to adding and removing elements. If you have a lot of add/remove operations on a series than a value of type list! should be faster. HASH! is faster when it comes to looking up elements. If you need to speed up searches then HASH! should be much faster. I expect that the speed of looking up elements in hashes is offset by the time it initially takes to construct a hash! and to add and remove elements in a hash. Be careful when navigating in list series. Indeces do not work the same way they do in blocks. Try out these examples:
>> list: make list! [1 2 3 4] >> block: make block! [1 2 3 4] >> first block >> first list >> remove block >> remove list >> first block >> first list
