"AMD has just published the first bits of open-source 3D programming
documentation for ATI GPUs. This 3D programming documentation covers
the R500 series and even goes back with information on the R300/400
series as well. The R600 3D programming guide will also be out soon.
This information available today is what will foster the growth of
open-source R500/600 3D support for the Radeon and RadeonHD drivers as
well as R600 2D acceleration."
Yeah, I'm still *in* the meeting. Glory be to laptops. I'm building a
PyGTK scheduling application. It can be downloaded at:
Release 0.1.0 is usable, but I suggest using the SVN trunk - it's
better. I'm probably going to be releasing 0.1.1 in a few weeks.

Our next meeting is this Thursday, Feb 21st, 2008 at 7:00 PM in the
Access Grid room on the WPI campus in Worcester, MA USA.
I'll update the website when it comes back up. For some reason, I
cannot access www.wlug.org at this time.
There is currently no specified topic for this meeting. If somebody
would like to address the group, please let me know. Otherwise, what I
might do is bring in the Ubuntu 7.10/KDE4 CD and we can explore it
together. I've only had a brief glimpse of it.
Afterwards, we'll retire to a local pizza restaurant for pizzas, sodas,
and great conversation on Linux and other related topics.
See ya there!

I just started listening to this interview, and there's a lot of
interesting history being recounted about the supercomputer industry
and microprocessor (particularly AMD) industry and design. I bet a
lot of you would find it interesting, too. They have MP3 and Ogg
