General Update

September 29th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I haven’t updated for awhile because of qualifying exams and research. Now that is done and over with, I will try to make updates more frequently. Several packages I would like to write reviews for soon and make little demos for are:

  1. Meld (A Diff tool. So far I’ve been quite pleased with it’s unique way of displaying diffs.)
  2. Paraview 3.6.1 – Now that I have more time I hope to take another stab at the new and improved version.
  3. TurboVNC – Modified version of tightVNC that works very well for media over 54Mbps wifi and 100Mbit LANs. I’ve been able to watch videos, play tux racer, and starcraft over wine without noticing any differences. In fact, I’ve run several OS’s in virtualbox remotely using TurboVNC for some computer repair training sessions over G wifi and no one noticed any latency.

I’ve updated some of the SCPD code, and I’m also working on some small short term projects.
