Diablo had procedurally generated levels back in 1997. I'm sure other games came before it. This is a bit more interesting because the procedure was learned, not explicitly programmed.
I was very upset to hear this last night. My favorite composition from him was Casper's Lullaby -- beautiful, haunting, and simple. They are what inspired me to learn piano in my 20s.
To me, node.js perfectly represents the age of programming we're in: people are doing things because they can, not because they should. Things that would have been just-for-fun geeky side projects 10 years ago are now somehow making their way into legitimate business-critical projects.
During a terror attack, I know I'll hear a quick sound when the detpack is set. At that point I've got a short window where I'll use a rocket jump to accelerate into a bunny hop, swing by the detback to lob a grenade at the enemy if he's still there, and continue bunny hopping to a safe distance.
Easy as cake.
I have an 850 Pro at home and an 850 EVO at work, and haven't experienced any corruption. I know that Windows uses TRIM. Why am I not seeing any problems?
I doubt EXT4 or whatever part of Linux issuing TRIM commands is doing it wrong, but they're clearly doing it different, and maybe it can be worked around or at the very least reported to the manufacturer to fix broken firmware.
Yeah, no kidding. I have no interest in a VR website. I don't want VR website. I read this and I think "just who the hell is asking for this feature".
It sounds like the primary goal here might be for web games, not for browsing the web.
Now, the next step - what in the hell do we actually do about it aside from individual protection? Sure, recent congressional actions (Thank you, Sen. Paul!) have put an end to at least one program... problem is, another grew to take its place (basically, the FBI is picking up where the NSA is allegedly leaving off).
I don't think we will ever trust them on this subject again. Individual protection is the only way, and that is exactly why we have so many government officials saying encryption needs to go.
I use an r9 270. I bought it when my old card starting showing age and acting up. For about $150 it runs every game I play on highest settings without batting an eye. That's with an AMD Athlon x2 btw... The whole race to specs domination doesn't add much.
You aren't playing the same games I'm playing. My video card and CPU are considerably faster than yours, and I'm unable to max out my settings in most games without considerable FPS drops.
Once programmed it acts like a HID class keyboard. You push the button, it spits out a string of characters, that being the two factor code for your account at the time.
While this describes the original Yubikey, the Neo goes beyond that and acts as a legit security token / smart card which can perform various encryption functions. The only important thing it doesn't yet do is DH.
Ask your boss. You no doubt signed away the copyright to the code you write for work, so you'll likely need explicit permission from them. If whatever you're doing isn't something that interests them from a business perspective, they might just let you do it.
My previous and current employers have allowed me to Open Source the generic non-business-critical software I write. Beyond just making me happy, one of the reasons I gave them is that any improvements I develop outside of work will be able to flow back in -- it was a win-win.
IE has long supported a header:
This tells it that your website is compatible with the "edge" of technology... the latest stuff the browser supports. If you don't have it, IE might determine your site needs to be run in IE6 compatibility mode.
This idea of the "edge" has been around IE since I believe IE10. The concept has clearly stuck.
The amount of douchebaggery over this was incredible.
First, you had a number of people who've decided modders shouldn't get paid for their work. I know some modders/mappers and while you'd never hear them complain about their hobby, the amount of effort they put in to these things is astounding and it's always pained me to see the amount of entitlement people display towards it.
And finally you had Nexus Mods, who came out as the people's champion despite they themselves actually raking in tones of dough over the years without sharing more than a pittance with modders – all to maintain servers which are essentially on auto-pilot with downloads on off-site hosting they aren't paying for.
I can see why Bethesda would just say fuck it and pull the plug. What a horrible community.
The least vocal, and perhaps most sensible, were people who merely took issue with Zenimax/Valve taking a crazy high 75% cut of sales.
Jack Horner put on an TEDx talk a while back discussing research that asks an interesting question: where are the babies?
Jack's research indicates many of these similar species may in fact be the same, but merely at different levels of development -- an adolescent thought to be a difference species from one fully developed.
The crux of it is that in the early days of our rediscovering dinosaurs, these guys would find a visual few differences in the dinos and name it as a new species, turning a blind eye to many similarities that might suggest otherwise.
