since I no longer have my video grabber card in my PC, not much is happening to mod_video. a lot of people have said they'd like to develop it further into something useful, but so far none have lived up to their promise of adding things to mod_video. if anyone wants to take this project off my hands, please do contact me. I wrote the module as a quick hack -- not because I knew anything about video grabbing or image encoding.

in other news...I am thinking about open sourcing a TCP proxy that was written to handle large amounts of long-running interactive connections on what is today rather anemic hardware. (a few thousand interactive users on a 200Mhz pentium Pro if memory serves. basically telnet sessions).

the server is quite neat and the source code is quite small, but I don't know if anyone actually needs a proxy server that can handle thousands of interactive connections with low CPU overhead. would it be worth the trouble to open source it? would anyone actually be willing to help develop it further?

you tell me :-)

some time ago I bought a keyboard and started playing around. since I do a lot of programming I like to listen to non-intrusive, monotonous music, so I decided to create some music along those lines. you'll find some Music for Programmers here. Most of the tracks were made a few days after buying my first keyboard.

Added a new developer to the mod_video project and updated the documentation somewhat. Also invited a couple of people to join the project if they want to. (hey, if you're interested in joining too just drop me a note :-)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
