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 :-)
