Dear Tuomas, Vesa, AJ and Tuukka:
Last night I tried the 08.19 version of GzigZag, converting my biggest
dataset with Tuomas' help. For some reason it crashed the first time--
but after that I ran it about HALF AN HOUR before it crashed-- on
the headcell bug you already know about.
I consider this an incredible triumph. I had hoped we could get to this
level of robustness by the time we leave two weeks from now-- hey,
it's almost USABLE!
And not only are the things we showed to Sonera great, but the NEW
stuff-- Tuomas' new floating headcell raster, and the four new ops he
put in just last night-- put it over the top.
The various delights of ZigZag appear to be, not reaching some reasonable
stopping place, but ACCELERATING!
Add to the above my own levels of amusement, occasional glee and
excusable gloating, and I am One Happy Camper.
So I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations-- to Tuomas, Heikki
from last March, Vesa, and now AJ and Tuukka; to Benjamin and
Marc-Jason Dominus (not forgotten!) for their code; to Andrew for
the incredible prototype that made the idea perform; to Ed for the all the
clever diplomacy in high and low places; to Pekka for his great insight and
support of a project many still cannot comprehend; and most especially,
to my lovely Marlene for making this all possible.
Guys, this is really something.
All best, Ted
