    I don't, but I still record things from time to time (mostly under the guise of testing).

Asked by Cwyaz (92.144.12.x) on August 17 2014, 11:51am
Reply on August 18 2014, 7:41pm:
    I sometimes will read Arstechnica articles but I don't find myself going to their web site to begin. I don't think I've heard "Flow Motion", I do like Ege Bamyasi and Tago Mago a lot though!

    Been doing the Thursday evening Van Cortlandt Track Club XC 5K races, those are fun. Last one is tonight...

Question: Is there anything you can do (legally) about cnet for redistributing REAPER? [permalink]
Asked by gio (94.66.73.x) on August 14 2014, 9:39am
Reply on August 14 2014, 2:24pm:
    Assuming they encapsulate the installer in theirs (as opposed to modifying our installer), I think they are in the clear, unfortunately. They also do it for LICEcap (which is what I noticed), which is GPL (so there's little recourse). Hence, we (the internet) should just blackhole them.

Question: Are you going to introduce tags in WDL? [permalink]
Asked by gio (94.66.73.x) on August 14 2014, 7:28am

    Meh, nah.

    Papier Tigre, Mogwai, Portugal The Man, The Verve, Radiohead, stuff like that.

Question: What would be the hardest part of porting reaper to Linux? [permalink]
Asked by Dave (50.246.0.x) on August 13 2014, 2:18pm
Reply on August 14 2014, 2:26pm:
    Wrapping a ton of controls (for whatever toolkit you would be targeting) to function as their win32 equivalents. A lot of the legwork for this is done (in SWELL), just need someone with a lot of time on their hands, who knows Qt or GTK+ and win32, to do it.

Question: can I use strlen function with utf8 encoded string in C? [permalink]
Asked by Ruchira (112.135.12.x) on August 12 2014, 2:31am
Reply on August 12 2014, 3:19am:
    Yes, but it will return the length in bytes (not the length in code points).

Question: was .nsv more sophisticated than realvideo? [permalink]
Asked by Will (68.104.121.x) on August 11 2014, 5:10am
Reply on August 11 2014, 1:31pm:
    I have no idea of the internals of realvideo, but nsv didn't include a codec, it was just a (streamable bitstream) container format.

Question: Have you ever noticed this? On the REAPER website, you write "A REAPER 2.0 license would have included over 100 free upgrades! " It DID include over 100 free upgrades, so use of the conditional "would" makes no sense. You mean that buying the license would have got you 100 free upgrades. [permalink]
Asked by Paul (178.56.131.x) on August 9 2014, 10:09pm
Reply on August 11 2014, 1:10am:
    A+ for pedantry, though I suppose if we never sold a license between 2.0 and 2.01 then it would be correct?

Question: do you think you'll ever jump on the "modern web" wagon and design a kick ass web app? [permalink]
Asked by Will (68.104.121.x) on August 8 2014, 3:32pm
Reply on August 8 2014, 6:27pm:
    If I ever find something that I really want to use, that fits as a web app, and scales easily, sure.

Question: Thoughts on porsche boxters? Decent car or POS? [permalink]
Asked by Will (24.234.85.x) on August 6 2014, 6:15pm
Reply on August 7 2014, 12:01am:
    POS would be incredibly harsh -- but I wouldn't say they are a good value, based on what I know of 'em.

Question: Here is some cool stuff to check out :) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6-ifjE7sJbI# youtu.be/84ytQV2w2jY https://m.facebook.com/profile.php?id=476404232379884 [permalink]

    Not sure I have an opinion on it, suppose I should investigate!
