BOUNTY: Offered by: Janko Metelko Task Open source code for OpenId consumer that handles a shared secret authentication (not dumb mode). http://wiki.openid.net/Introduction Amount $50 Terms Payment via PayPal

aha. I mean for R2 (Cheyenne)
BOUNTY (obfuscator): Offered by: Janko Metelko Task Open Sourced Rebol 2 code obfuscator that would change all names of function / variables in a cheyenne -like webapp and compact the code (without making the app not work) Amount $60 Terms Payment via PayPal
I'd like to pay someone to help me write a videoconference application in R2. I've got a little VOIP script already working at http://www.rebol.org/view-script.r?script=intercom.r . Using the Windows MCI API that I knew, that simply writes a wav file to a file, and then transfers it. I need a Windows/REBOL guru to help me continuously retrieve wave data in memory, to avoid gaps and delays in the sound. Same thing with video. My webcam script can only write images to a file - I need to have some Windows API code written to do it all in memory, without the delays associated with writing to a file. Amount: Please suggest an estimated amount
Does the web cam have to display inside a Rebol window?
No, but I want to have complete control with REBOL code.

Looks like I can claim the OpenDbx bounty :)
Graham, I got it and I agree. I just tried to show one of possible explanations why there is noone picking up the Bounties. I believe there is lot of great programmers around lurking on this Altme world. It seems to me they are just busy with their day jobs and rather want to spend the small piece of their free time(if there is any) in a different way than sitting in front of LCDs again. That's just my impression about the state. TomBon, please don't take it too personal. The DLL interface was just an example as I saw it at the end of the queue. As I said in previous msg maybe I'm just overestimating the work and some Rebol/C expert will do it in 5 days for Win/OSX and Linux. Also while looking at the 'valid date' you gave to the task this seems to me more like 'full time' job deadline than some fun bounty work. BTW isn't Maxim working on the DLL stuff already?
whoops, wrong group :)
no problem cyphre ;-) just to explain: valid until means the bountie offer, not the creation timeframe. it makes no sense to offer a bountie with an unlimited timeframe to take. of course the task can & should be made step by step without any special due date. so if someone is interested to do the job he should 'decide' until this date.
I am, actually, a DLL interface could find its way back into my schedule next week, and would once again benefit multiple clients of mine. I`ve already got some work done and a compiling setup all ready for it. thing is, the next hostkit / extension could make a bit difference in how this is implemented, so I was waiting for the next release of R3 before starting this project again... it has been several months now since this was last released by Carl.
Just to clarify, TomBon, are you offering $350 for the DLL interface now? Or, was the $350 figure you mention the $450 less the $100 for the OSX interface?
I've updated the bounty to indicate the acceptance date http://rebol.wik.is/Bounties/R3_-_simplified_DLL_interface
my part here is $350 so you can see it as an official increase from the $200 I made in january. so if pekr, janko and will still offering their bountie the total would be $600. but for fairness I think you should ask them if they are furthermore interested after such a long time. for this reason I added the 'valid until' .
Ok, I'll update the bounty details. Do you still have that restriction on nested structures?
Pekr is still okay. Janko ? Will ?
It seems that Ladislav is going to work on the Simplified DLL interface for R3
