Some updates

I've moved my Linux Audio projects from Google Code to GitHub.  You can find midisnoop at https://github.com/surfacepatterns/midisnoop and synthclone at https://github.com/surfacepatterns/synthclone.

I haven't made any real changes to either project in about two years, and I don't anticipate making any changes in the near future.  There are a few reasons for this:

  1. I get my coding fix at work these days.  No, really.  I love working for Akamai.
  2. I have a Mac now, and am spoiled by the music production tools that are available to me.  I no longer constantly ask myself whether I should tolerate the limitations of my tools, or spend months or years writing code so that I can write a tool to do the job I need done.
  3. I've rediscovered my love for video games.  Well, that's not quite true.  I've actually found that I dislike most video games released these days.  Fortunately, there are some notable exceptions, which take up a lot of my time.  I'm looking at you, From Software.
I know there are still people using midisnoop and synthclone (thank you!), and I don't want to let my lack of interest keep either application from evolving.  If you or someone you know wants to make changes to the codebase, please let me know.  I'll work with you in some capacity to make sure that changes get merged into the "official" branch, and that releases get made.  Alternatively, if you want to take over maintenance of the codebase, we can discuss that too.

It's possible I may choose to port midisnoop and/or synthclone to Mac OSX at some point.  If that happens, I'll make sure that the code still works on Linux.
