Picture of x264-developer Loren Merritt?

Does anyone got a link to a picture of x264-developer Loren Merritt?
He's a bit someone I look up upon, even though I switched to x265 now (some of his code might have followed to x265?).
Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Oh, I just saw his profile here: "Last Activity: 15th February 2014 07:14" =(

Moderator note: Please do not post any pictures of people here without the person's explicit concent! Thank you!

lol! That's Alfred E. Neuman from MAD-magazine.

Here are some pictures of other famous video-codec developers,
https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=142482

Oh, that picture of the DivX employees was deleted =(

EDIT: I finally found that picture!

"Group photo left to right: Gej (the Gej), Patrice (SVP, Product), DigitAl56K, SeaBass (Consumer Marketing)" etc.

He probably prefers to have his privacy preserved. If so, I think this should be respected.

So I urge everybody to not post any pictures of x264 developers (or other related people) here without the person's concent! Links to public web-sites are okay, of course.

(I think the photo of the DivX guys should be okay, because AFAIK they posted it publicly before)

@LoRd_MuldeR. Yeah, I absolutely agree with that he should have his privacy preserved if he don't want any photos of him shown here. And I think this should be respected too.

BTW, I'd also want to see Didée on a picture, he's a Doom9-legend

I remember that there was a video presentation showing benefits of added opencl acceleration in x264 on AMD APU cpus. However I'm not sure if it was Loren Merritt or Dark Shikari ...

I think that it was D.S. but he's already on the picture I linked here.

Yes, you called her "etc" in the post before.
Dark Shikari's actual name is Fiona Glaser. Jason is dead.

F.Y.I.

You're first post in this thread, was some off-topic nonsense, directly attacking others. Then you continue on by defending the gender choice of some other person, against someone who incorrectly defined the current sexual preference of a person, when that very same person is being discussed about in a past tense, when that person was the gender that was described.

Seriously!!!! Our society has issues such as domestic violence, child molestation and rape, famine, disease........

neuron2 provided a service to this community for quite some time, and if you can't find the decency to respect that, maybe try putting your fingers to some other use.

I left the above post in as, even though also off topic, it makes sense. If the subject of the thread has been answered, maybe we can drop it and go onto something else.

To the best of my knowledge, Loren is a penguin.

<videowall_> pengvado: you should really try to find someone that measures up to your standards that will help review patches
<videowall_> or alternatively, consider clone technology
<pengvado> penguins don't clone, we fork()
And there's two of them.

<holger_> hooray, pengvado just forked

"deleted for being off-topic" — WRONG. You deleted my post because I dared to say DG is a troll, and your unconditional friendship to him speaks louder than Reason.

Exactly!

I don't think I'll ever get to see a picture of Loren 'Pengvado' Merritt or Didée, since none have been active here for a long time.
But all this talk about famous Doom9'ers. LoRd_MuldeR, I always wondered, it that you on your avatar?

P.S. But on a serious note: I thought that doxxing is frowned upon..?

I really feel for DS.

The emotional pain and turmoil that he must have been carrying around for such a long time.

I am not talking about the headbutting that occurred within this community, however many years ago that was. That pales in comparison to how he must have felt, living in today's society with the medical condition that he did (or still does, I don't know). Unlike some other people with a similar condition, who I guess on some emotional level, receive some form assistance through privacy, DS was public.

The courage to actually acknowledge the condition in public, is nothing short of remarkable. Now, today, as a community, we show respect for that courage, by allowing our own emotions regarding the past to drive discussion. It is not our issue to discuss. We should always respect the privacy of the actual people concerned. If we allow ourselves to become overly emotional, we show a complete lack of respect for those involved, in introducing others to emotional pain from years past.

There are people reading this, who previously had no knowledge. And instead of DS being given the respect to share this information with whoever DS feels is worthy of that knowledge (by virtue of the respect of privacy from this community), we now have a bunch of people who might be going, "omg, DS is........."! And while the issue is public, it's prevalence is directly controlled by those who persist in keeping it public.

That is on you Midzuki, and your inability to control emotion.


Whatever happened between neuron2 and other parties has long been dealt with (by the parties involved). There is no denying that neuron2 is human, and thus, fallible. This community has acknowledged the grievances, and applied the appropriate resolution. Leave it alone.

If you really want to help others, you first need to acknowledge your own actions.

Violence extends from a lack of emotional control. Stop worrying about others, and start considering how your own emotional lack of control is affecting others. Especially those who your strongly care for: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domestic_violence
