Still got a broken DES implementation. Tried various kludges to see if I could get it to work with the test vectors I'd found, but to no avail. But it has the correct timing properties, which is what I'm interested in, so for now I'll just go with what I've got (pressing deadlines...).
iain: Placebo dull? I guess Brian Malco's voice is something you like or hate - forages I couldn't stand Brett Anderson's voice, but eventually came round. I don't think Placebo qualify for boring though. When I say them live the other week the momentum of the show was really good. It dipped a bit with too many slow songs strung together, but came out tops again finishing with Pure Morning, Taste in Me, and Nancy Boy.
On a side note, Lettucehead will hopefully be playing on Saturday - nothing spectacular, just an open stage affair, but it'll be good to play again.
Hmmm. Fixed itself - this, of course, just means it will go wrong again. Went through our second power-supply unit too - I think being continuously plugged in to power the camera overheats the wee things. Now our second camera is without power.
