After a request, there’s a cool new feature coming soon in DANSE: you can pause the simulation, change an entry in a routeing table, or a timer in the MAC protocol, or anything else the protocol designer has provided the facility for, and then carry on. It’s in the development version now, it’ll be in the release version as soon as it gets a bit more testing, As far as I know, DANSE is the only simulator that allows you to do this.
I’ll stick to Silverlight for now. When the world gets itself sorted out and agrees on a way to run powerful client-side apps on everything (which I still hope someday it might), I’ll start converting. In the meantime, anyone who wants to read the book with all the examples and demonstrations on a tablet will just have to get an Android device. (Not that I’ve tested Moonlight… I can’t afford a Xoom… but if I get the chance to test things out, I will.)
