FJITA: The Project that Just Wasn't Meant To Be

Common wisedom says to not give up. But nevertheless sometimes, that seems to be exactly the right thing to do. Project FJITA (no, I will not explain what the acronym means) was an interesting idea that originated in 2007. Back then, I became interested in the lower-level details of DVDs. I had build a hardware hack that allowed me to capture the raw bitstream from DVDs, and wrote a software decoder for DVD bitstreams.
