>> Hey users, I'm experimenting with some simple games using big-bang from 2htdp/universe and I keep running into stuttering problems. It seems to be the garbage collector slowing things down (green recycle symbol in drracket is on whenever the program is frozen).

i believe games (well, ones that want a real frame rate &
interactivity) and gc are not generally going to get good results. at
least, not with most main-stream gc's. at least, not on the client
side. c'est la vie.
