The Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy soundtrack is incredible:
@lanodan Thunderbird is quite alright. Works great on Wayland, has plenty of features, its stable, has a nice interface. It doesn't really need to innovate to stay alive.
Servo has/had a lot of interest from VR companies, so I don't think that's quite dead yet. Maybe if no one rehires the developers. Most ex-moz people still plan to stay together if they can and they're looking at how to make it happen atm.
@dredmorbius That proves my point, and says I'm even behind with the times 🙂
Just heard this phrase and my mind got blown. Its true. Some projects are that old and migrated so well from SVN to Git that they have a clean and accurate history spanning 20 years, and I'm sure you could find some truly horrendous and/or nice stuff if you start digging deep in git blame. For swear words.
The age of digital archaeology is upon us.
@wolf480pl The compiler of course.
"Just run this the compiler can optimize the hot paths better".
That's definitely the job of a developer.
@emersion Sssh, pipewire is flawless and is bound to be better than anything old. And anything new for that matter too, because it is developed by the bright minds at gnome and redhat.
@wolf480pl In my experience, you can. You just can't trust it'll get to you and the driver won't feel hungry.
Some time ago I posted a picture showing how the DSD release of some Hibike OST was really just 48Khz PCM converted to DSD.
After I found out about the abitscope filter I took a look at the bit distribution after requantizing to PCM. Top->bottom is MSB->LSB respectively.
Yup, that does look like 24-bit audio, with the bottom 8 or so bits fluctuating due to roundings during the PCM->DSD->PCM requantizations.
Just get the PCM/CD next time, DSD is too cumbersome to work with anyway so all work is done in PCM anyway.
cursed fantasy CPU
@piggo No x86-style addressing? Nothing on SIMD? A nanosecond precision frequency-independent timestamp?
Well, at least its a concept. The RISC-V workgroup have been at it for so many years now yet there's nothing stable apart from the basics.
Codec researcher, x86 assembly and Vulkan expert. As expected.
Had nothing to do with x264. Most unexpected.
