Skype to use On2 vide codecs in it's upcoming beta

July 31, 2005 Comments off

According to this news report at Internet News, Skype supposedly has licensed video codecs from On2 technologies whose previous codec VP3 is the basis for the open source Theora codec.

Public beta is thought to be scheduled for end-of-August. Will be very interesting to see how video conferencing takes off with this.

Pair networks plonks good money to FreeBSD tcp stack faster

July 28, 2005 Comments off

Pair Networks which is a very fine webhost and is well known as a FreeBSD shop contributed US$ 14,000 to support Andre Opperman for his TCP/IP optimization work.

Pair had previously donated a sizable amoount for Poul Henning Kamp’s work on buffer cache cleanup and optmisation and now are doing the same for the tcp/ip stack.

I really think this is a very fine gesture.
