    Now this one has a long history to it. However, I don't want to bore you; that's the video's job, not mine.

    Many thanks to silver_moon, cjhayes85, and Koopiskeva for putting up with me while I incessantly bugged them with questions.

    Hours in development: a lot. I threw away just over half a year of my life on this thing. Let's just say, oh, 400, because that sounds like a big, round number.

    Notes
    ------

    (Update 21/04/2003) Oh, what the hell. If I'm going to embarass myself, it might as well be in a place where nobody knows me.

    Video concept: war-torn lovers. I know it doesn't make any sense.

    See http://www.rose-hulman.edu/~yipdw/always.notes for more information. If, for some crazy reason, you'd actually like to know THAT much about this POS.

    05/05/2003 update: I feel like George Lucas now -- this is the third encode of "always" I've released. However, it's XviD, it's a lot smaller, and it looks REALLY GOOD. Huge thanks to Tab (RadicalEd0) for giving me a crash course in How To Make XviD Look Freaking Amazing.

    Here's some random statistics that video junkies may be interested in, even though they mean absolutely nothing:
    Average Quantizer Used for Movie : 2.428
    Compressibility : 88.48%
    Relative Quality of XviD avi : 82.38%
    Absolute Quality of XviD avi : 98.72%
