Ah, yes, I meant Theora. Vorbis is the audio codec.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
They didn't even need to buy On2 to get VP9. They could have used one of the open-source codecs that already exists. You know, like Vorbis, which is perfectly fine for most videos and not as resource-hungry.
I find the abbreviation, MARTA, cute. Reminds me of a certain video game character.
You're doing it wrong.
I use a mouse mat and clean my room. It's not that bad.
Speak for yourself. My "roller-ball" mouse still works after 15 years of use. The buttons don't respond as well, though.
At any rate, yesterday's "roller-ball" mice were of superior build quality than today's cheap throw-away optical mice.
You pronounce someone's name how they want it pronounced, assuming they don't have some strange sound that you can't reproduce, then you just try your best.
Tell that to every English and French speaker pronouncing a foreign name. They don't even try.
Good luck with the HTTP part if you use Server-Side Includes (SSI)...
Not a gun nut here, but I believe "minimal" means "as little as possible", which could be anywhere from zero to some percentage above it.
Gun ban legislation will only do one thing: spark civil war. The 'Joe Sixpacks' with their blue tick hounds are plenty pissed about the Patriot Act, NDAA, and all that other crap. Don't let the stupid media stereotypes fool you! They like the first amendment too. A gun ban will push them over the edge (last box). It will not work. Simply because a lot of people will not let it work. Good for them, I say.
All the more reason to introduce gun ban legislation, then. It would mean that people would finally get off their lazy ass and do something instead of complaining.
Please, don't abuse the apostrophe.
I was going to ask the same question. What's more, to Belgians it's insulting to be associated with The Netherlands.
YOU are the only person who has said this or claimed that anyone else has said it. Everyone else is saying that they want parents to be more involved in their children's education because it's the largest single determining factor in the child's success.
Actually, the post did say this:
The parents of children in the top tier school are more involved, but only as a hindrance to the teachers' job( threatening lawsuits or to call politicians to have a teacher fire because their little Johnny sparkle shit has discipline problems).
Of course, Karmashock took it the wrong way. It's good to have parents involved, but not in a "DON'T TOUCH MY SNOWFLAKE OR I SUE/FIRE YOUR ASS".
FPS, keyboard and mouse beats console controller any day.
I far prefer a Wii Remote and Nunchuck combo for an FPS. It's 1:1 input and gives me analogue movement.
Isn't JPEG with maximum quality lossless as well?
I used to think this, but it's not because of things like rounding errors.
A lossless JPEG format specification exists, but never gained widespread adoption.
