Was lifting weights for a little while. Ran out of steam on that, but trying to get back into it... I do have one computer project: I'm a square dance caller, and one of the co-authors of the SquareDesk square dance caller's music playing and stuff software. Qt's licensing is getting annoying, and we've been talking about how it'd be nice to support ChromeBooks and Android, *aaaand* we display a lot of stuff using the HTML engine anyway, so I've been looking at cross-platform-ness that might let us get all of those platforms. Of course there's Electron and React Native and whatnot, and Flutter & Dart, but the big problem is that we need music retiming and processing. We've been using libbass. There's some demonstration code in JavaScript for some of the pitch-shifting and retiming we'd like to do, but most of it is just "I implemented this one technique" and has lots of artifacts. It looks like just_audio will do retiming under Flutter, although not yet pitch shifting, and it's not clear how well it'll handle seeking (for playing loops). If anyone has a favorite library to build this thing on, holla! Dan

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ LOL, speaking of running out of steam... I can hear my muscles fizzing out their steam as soon as I walk out of the gym! I've been going to gym for almost a year now... my physique hasn't changed but I do feel better (physically and mentally) so I'll keep going :) The audio project sounds interesting... I hope to hear more about it as you progress
