Would you kill your own child for being ugly? :wow:

It would be an interim measure. If a user reports an issue with fast mode we can have them try slow. The result could help in identifying the cause (sounds weak, I know). All shortcuts to victory are kosher (sounds goofy, I know). At some point the poor ugly baby must be euthanized (sounds cruel, I know). The poor thing had a beautiful life but when your time comes...

Probably going to ditch the garbage stripping option. It's a PITA, Sherman says it's buggy in slow mode anyway, and a demuxer should faithfully demux the disk. Finally I have seen only one disk that would need it and nobody is clamoring for this feature.

Speak now or forever hold your peace.

Here is a release candidate for the fast mode:

* Remove garbage stripping option.

* -fast is replaced by -slow, so fast mode is now the default. You can get slow mode by issuing the option -slow directly to DGDemux, or by holding down left SHIFT when hitting the Demux button in the GUI.

Beat it to death, then turn it over, and beat the other side to death.

"Don't let them say, I wasn't born
That something stopped my heart
I felt each tender squeeze you gave
I've loved you from the start.
Although my body you can't hold,
It doesn't mean I'm gone.
This world was worthy, not, of me
God chose that I move on."

DG tools need a -slow option. Got it, everyone?

Don't rub it in, Nattie. Are you still busy tonight? Give a little, get a little. Right?

Are you kidding me? Blame it on Sherman. He needs pulling down a peg or two. Will slip a fix into 45 right away.

Thanks and so great to see you, redbtn.

EDIT: All fixed.

Don't worry, Sherm, you're good and we love you. Just remember that quality control and the last 5% is the key to a successful development. When you release code under the DG imprimatur, it has to be rock solid.

When are you and Peabody gonna rescue DG from the past? We've been waiting a long time. Get 'er done!

I was scared to tell you, Bullwinkle. DG is stuck in the future. We don't know how it happened on a routine Wayback journey, and we don't have any ideas about how to get him back. So sorry.

Hope I am not out-of-line in saying that what Sherman has done with the DGDemux performance enhancement is really quite remarkable, and he is to be highly commended for it. He and I are working together to modify the Wayback Machine to support trips to the future. One would expect the time symmetry of deterministic reality to allow this. We anticipate bringing DG back very soon.
