I'm complaining, because I'm totally exhausted. And it's flash player that made me so exhausted.

I've been doing a server side RTMP implementation with Java for months. Although Adobe opened its SPEC, there are still many details missing. I had spent around 2 weeks debugging access violation in flash player (as a programmer you know a access violation sounds fatal but is likely to be of the easiest bugs), another two weeks were waste on fixing wrongly ordered video packets.

All these bugs, if flash player has an open source implementation, cost even no more than 1 hour. To fix the bugs I have to guess what flash player might do.

Now I need to be back to continue guessing what might be inside flash player.
