Free Software

Lots of updates since last time.

I worked for a while putting together a new liba52 release (well two actually), and moved the project to sourceforge. The newer code has better downmix, is 2-3 times faster, and has a few added features too.

I also did some work on libmpeg2 - Well not as much as I should (vektor is waiting for a new release), but I wrote asm code for altivec (about a 2.6x speedup) and I'm starting to write some VIS (ultrasparc) code too. We'll see how it goes.

Life

I broke up with my girlfriend. About 3 monthes ago - well, we first did it 3 monthes ago, but then we've been together on and off again. Weird.

I've been pretty depressed too - like, for some time I couldnt sleep normally, and I had very persistent dark thoughts, and everything seemed to suck - the job, my life, everything. So now I'm taking some light antidepressants, and well, it seems to work quite well on me. I'm even starting to get a life :) This evening I'm going to some friends place for dinner, and then to a stanford students party. And I had to refuse some other invitation too. Like, that never happened before. I hope it keeps going that way for me.
