I'm still happy with my Core 2 duo machine, and don't have a dire need for anything newer.
A member of the x264 team really doesn't like WebP because its quality isn't good enough.
Has Netcraft confirmed it?
I use a custom build of the old version of PcHelpware, from the creators of UltraVnc. Not the new version, but the old version. The old version of PcHelpware lets me pick the port number, so I can get through restrictive firewalls that only allow well-known port numbers.
However, it's still a bit buggy on Vista/Windows 7, specifically, it crashes whenever a UAC prompt appears. I made a workaround for this, I replaced the main EXE with a stub version that disables UAC when you run it, and reenables UAC after it exits. I also got rid of the Login and Password prompt, because it's completely nonsensical and worthless.
When you want to support a PC, you just tell someone to download the EXE from your website, and run it. And guide them through the process of adding it to Norton's or Mcafee's exclusion list, reassuring Internet Explorer that it's okay to open EXE files, etc.
So for several of the games, the left trackpad seems to be equivalent to a non-centering joystick or Turbo Touch 360 (touch-sensitive gamepad for NES/Genesis, etc).
The non-centering joystick of the Atari 5200 got really bad reviews, and the Turbo Touch 360 was rated the 9th worst video game controller of all time by IGN.
I'm getting 7-9 MB/sec with my 802.11ac adapter, whether on the 2.4GHz band or the 5GHz band. So at least the theoretical speed of wireless G is finally real.
It is much faster than the 2.5MB/sec I was getting on the so-called "a/b/g/n" adapter.
For comparison, on actual gigabit ethernet, I get about 88-100MB/sec.
If you make this the preferred site layout, I'll simply leave Slashdot. You have competition now, don't fuck up.
Because PNG beats the pants off of GIF in terms of file size.
SWF is a much better file format for animated raster images. You can define an image, put it on the stage multiple times, and move it around and apply affine transformations to it. You don't need to store tons of raw pixel data.
It's also an inferior version of video, since if you're using an animated image to store short video clips, you don't get the benefit of motion compensation and strong compression.
The old analog process had nowhere to put the scanned image except onto another piece of paper. This is about scanning and performing bad lossy compression on the scanned documents badly, not copying. Copying is still high quality.
Didn't this kind of thing happen in that James Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies?
The hashes are salted. Who cares about a breach with salted hashes?
