If anyone has a peice of CAD software that they could use to open this I'd sure appreciate it. (I'll fwd the file to you when I here from you).


The contents look like this:

@DaveC426913 I know it's been a very long time, but do you remember ever solving this issue? Did you find an app to open it?

Indeed it has been a while.
So long in fact, that I don't even remember posting this, let alone anything about it.

(How urgent could a crossword puzzle be?)

All seriousness aside, I had to go to LinkedIn to see what contract I was at then. It was a video streaming company that captured horse races and such on satellite feed and streamed them at various bit rates. I was responsible for writing the scheduling software that turned the digitizers on and off.

Maybe one of the feeds was of type .GPM.

I'm pretty sure the file I included was a sample I grabbed somewhere online - for the sake of clarity - not real data I was using.
