Whee. Long time no post. Anyway, I've discovered that the noise reduction feature in that last version of MTPng actually causes more noise than it removes (oops). I should have a fix out soon in case it's not obvious what to #if 0 out :)

Found the original MODs by SLL that became the famous SoundSmith SLL4 and SLL8 tunes. They're pitched a bit differently than the better-known (to me) SoundSmith versions - perhaps H. Aalbers messed up the conversions. OTOH, other MODs I have of FUN.MUSIC songs are identical (Cambodia for instance). Weird all around.

On the WINE front, I submitted a patch that implements the DOS INT21h/73xx calls that Internet Explorer 5.0 makes on Win9x (yikes). This eliminates a major source of FIXME messages in that program. Alexandre's now accepted it into CVS, so you'll get it if you're up to date. Still on the WINE plate: Some DirectX7 DirectDraw stuff. I need to write a test app less complicated than The Sims first though ;-)

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.
