Sad to admit, but I'm afraid I've been beat.

This thread was mildly amusing for a long time. But, I feel like I've just walked out of a movie with a weak and implausible ending that leaves me wishing I had my money back.

I guess I should have seen the end coming, but still, I feel cheated. I feel like yelling: THIS IS THE BEST YOU COULD DO?

I'm going to do my best to drop out of this thread and admit, Harry has won. Not in the sense that I believe one word of his ridiculous story, but in the sense that he's beaten me down and I just have no more desire to engage with a pathological liar who isn't even very clever in his lies.

What we heard first was that it would be announced for sure months ago.

And of course, even if Canon/Google/Facebook/whoever comes out with a whizz-bank codec, Harry will not be able to say 'that one's mine' because he will claim a confidentiality agreement.
A perfect non-falsifiable argument.

I am working on a 100% lossy encryption algorithm that can store infinite video on a 4GB card.

There are a couple of drawbacks but you have to admit the compression ratio can't be beat.
WHAT!! :eek: you mean I have to buy a 4GB card? Can't you get it to work on a 2GB card?

No. You need the 125% lossy compression for that.

Does it improve the DR to compare with a Sony?

Only if it's written in Pascal Cobol 6502 assembler

HEY! I know 6502 assembler! …… or I did 40 years ago...… The big question is that with a clock speed of 1Mhz and 4 cycles per instruction, could Harry write a 4K encoder for it :)
I used to be able to write some in it, too, but I have no recollection of how. I'm pretty sure my Apple ][ didn't run anything close to 1 Mhz. I think that was the speed of my first Mac. Or maybe it had 1 MB of memory, or maybe both. My assembler routines were needed for dealing with the outside world in real time, mostly audio applications.

I never had occasion to learn COBOL. I was pretty good at FORTRAN, which came in handy as I learned Applesoft BASIC. When I learned Pascal and rewrote a game, it ran so fast I couldn't play it, so I put in some delay loops.

YES!!! We can write a 4k codec in 6502 assembler!

AND IN COBOL and in Fortran and maybe even in IBM JCL (i.e. Mainframe computer Job Control Language)....While I may have to output the imagery as ASCII artwork to the VT100/VT220/IBM 3270 display terminals ....BUT....it WILL be 4K video.... AND since I still have my VAX CMS/Cobol/Fortran manuals to help me in my coding, the codec will ALSO work on a VAX-780, MicroVAX, DECstation and above!

While we are at it, I might as well get it to work on 8088/8086 IBM-PC/PC-XT and 80286 PC-AT and an 80386 Compaq's...Aaaaaahhhh!!! What the heck. How about the ORIGINAL MACINTOSH's MC68000 processors! I think I can get the 4K codec to work on ALL of them! Memory paging performance will be utterly abysmal BUT I think I can do it!

I've been getting it to work on ARM Cortex A4/M4 cores running at 25 MHZ and 32 MHZ so it CAN be done!

I have ANOTHER ideas...I will see if I can create an MS-DOS 3.0 Batch file command line version of the 4K codec......


YEEEEE HAAAHHHH !!!! Can You Feel The CODE BURN ??? !!!


GET REEAAAADDDDYYYYYY TOOOOO RUUUUUUUMMMMMMMBLE !!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, guilty, wrote a bit of a CAD application back in the day and typically used that for screen cross hair cursors etc. to be a little more per formant. Like a few here started with Fortran on a VAX, Cobol (taught that for a while at college) Pascal, Basic, Lisp, then got lost in the AutoDesk world for many years (AutoLisp C# et al)
How the world has changed!

Harry,

On 29th April, you said:

...BUT...

we DO have another software surprise for you which should be happening right around this coming Wednesday....
Well it's now over a week later than you indicated, and we're still waiting.

So...? Have you got anything, or not?

(I think we know the answer.)

Poor Harry is still trying to discover his special purpose. In the meantime Harry, your mother would appreciate it if you would clean up your room...

He’s got nothing. Never will. Harry has overstayed his welcome. No longer entertaining. He’s revealed himself to be nothing more than a pathetic liar craving attention.
