Thank you and I do have to (directly) apologise as I might have been
responsible for some of those attacks... (I don't know)

I liked the GGI idea when it first started but I was too broke to really
be able to put any energy in. My playing with videocode (almost landed me
in heavy commercial waters) will prolly appear pretty soon... soon as I
get some time to clean it up that is :)

[there were - and still are AFAIK some issues with the GGI project that
need dealing with before it goes mainstream]

Though FWIW my 3D project I was planning on taking commercial... I'm not
anymore (looks like a waste of time - it'd be more productive to further
linux). Maybe that got mixed up with GGI 'cause I too am building kernel
graphics? (though avoiding kernel as much as possible - it's currently
100% userspace but I'm hitting some limits... BTW 1G/s data transfer is
farely normal for videocode... and really almost impossible to handle in

G'day, eh?

PS : any responses to this message personal please? I don't want to spam
this list. This is meant as an apology to the GGI people (even though it
may not look like one) and perhaps a partial explanation.
