Developing in your spare time is something weird. On the one hand you want to keep your social life ongoing (and we all know how fast you can forget about time while staring at code. Just look at the time I write this article), on the other it helps you so much when you are searching for different challenges than your work can give you.
Next week I’m going to be in Cologne again for a big birthday party, and as I have no children on my own (congratulations to Paradoxon again), I decided to play a little bit around with Cortex again.
Cortex is kind of *the* application when it comes to Multimedia on Haiku. It allows you to display all the things going on in your system regarding media nodes. While we already recognized that it also tends to manipulate the system itself, it still is a great peace of software, horribly to read and get into, but does the user care
Today I added some of the additional addons to the build, and well what can I say. The following screenshot starts reminding me where BeOS once was and that possibly Haiku will be there at some point. No I am not talking about opening Chapter 11
I’d really like to investigate on so much more stuff, Haiku is still missing encoding support. Also all latest hardware technology is currently bypassed. All these are areas I am interested in and have absolute no to some clue about, but then again…
Let’s get social and go to bed.
