diana_coman: mircea_popescu: looking at all sorts re graphics, I keep bumping into Eric Lengyel's stuff - he seems to have made some interesting things (eg some work on font rendering directly from vectorial repr + some data formats even); did anyone look at his work before?
diana_coman: a search of the logs for his name didn't return anything.
mircea_popescu: not that i know
mircea_popescu: is he still alive ?
diana_coman: he seems to be even reasonably young and active but he has his own engine that he seems to be pushing/selling, this theraton thing http://www.terathon.com/lengyel/
mircea_popescu: say hi ?
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: I can send him an email but not quite sure what to ask of him ie what do we want from him?
mircea_popescu: well, so far we want to say hi.
mircea_popescu: i'm not against his writing a client, if it's sane. but you know, gotta see the guy first neh
diana_coman: he even has a blog on which one can't comment...
mircea_popescu: heh
diana_coman: well yes but given that he is writing and selling books + his own engine and all that, I doubt there's a direct line like that; kind of need to find something more in common - if there's any - first, I guess.
mircea_popescu: honestly, all coversations start with saying hi.
mircea_popescu: you can't queue that for planning your future together
diana_coman: mircea_popescu: sure, but what, I send an email "Hi"; seriously now; next you'll think I have a problem talking or what?
mircea_popescu: no, but i mean, "hey, i ran over your x while i was doing y for z, are you still working on it" for instance
diana_coman: uhm; I tend to ...say more to start with, lol; but ok, I'll fire him an email soon enough.
mircea_popescu: if he's retarded he'll not answer ; if he's powerful he'll direct you to the respective castle, if he's weak he'll just come over. that's the trilema.
diana_coman: eh, he'll just answer / not quite-any.
mircea_popescu: if he thinks he's powerful without being it'll become aparent from examining the castle, at which time fallback case is retarded.
mircea_popescu: the iron rule of reducing unknowns socially.
diana_coman: but who knows & at any rate, an email is not a problem.
mircea_popescu: word.
