I wonder if automotive proximity sensors scale their warning by closing velocity as well as position. Don't want to run the test.
Bizarre: the top google hit for "lock-free ARM snapdragon" is en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suplex
I was super excited to get a new tool from a hardware vendor today, then disappointed when it didn't show me anything I could do better.
all this neo-reactionary talk is fun to follow davidbrin.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/neo-re…
A tiny bit of metadata in media streams could help out res/framerate up scalers a lot by looking ahead more than a couple frames.
It is sad, bordering on pathetic, that references in scientific papers aren't hyperlinks. Tawdry gossip sites link info better.
it always seems wrong that it is easier to write the 24 indexes of a 3D bounds' edges out by hand than derive them somehow.
Android cpuX/online file is world readable, but cpuX/cpufreq/cpuinfo_cur_freq is not. Higher res load side channel considered dangerous?
Must remember to channel all my frustrations about broken software into writing more virtuous code. Instead of screaming.
And Laplace (of a related transform) figured out the orbital resonance effect that created grooves in Saturn's rings.
I did not know that Fourier (of the transform) was also the discoverer of the greenhouse effect.
Apparently erbium is a useful alloying element in aluminum.materialsaustralia.com.au/lib/pdf/materi…
It is a shame that Android output to logcat only has 10 ms timing granularity, despite printing three digits
A dreary day of tool frustration, slightly brightened by finding that Unity outputs useful GL annotations in debug builds.
Vertex array objects aren't much of a speed optimization, but they do help contain state issues when working with other people's code.
Can exciting electrons to higher orbitals make observable changes in the size of nanostructures?
There is a fine line between orthogonal feature sets and hateful global state in graphics APIs.
As argument for why Android doesn't use SysV IPC, they include source for a linux exploit in the NDK docs. :-)
If they don't want me to talk on stage at Quakecon next year, we'll just have to fill up the lobby like the old days. :-)
I wanted to remain a technical adviser for Id, but it just didn't work out. Probably for the best, as the divided focus was challenging.
This works rather better than I expected, as long as you don't roll your head to the side krpano.com/stereo3d/
This weekend play @RAGEgame

This is the closest we will ever get to a love letter to systems programming. research.microsoft.com/en-us/people/m…
Hopefully the R&D with ink jet printing OLED displays will lead to sphere-section displays that can match a lens profile.
I'm expecting "Achievement unlocked!" to pop up after getting the damn ADB USB interface configured for the Qualcomm developer phone.
"An Empirical Evaluation of TCP Performance in Online Games": iis.sinica.edu.tw/~swc/pub/tcp_i…
(tl;dr: TCP is "bad" for MMOs)
it's a deep field with many different techniques, e.g. nec.com/en/global/tech…
If a drama is going to zoom/enhance a video frame, they could at least show it combining pixels from all the neighboring frames.
Smartphone wifi has about the same effective range as shouting in many circumstances.
Oooo. I like running my code with SCHED_FIFO. I like it a lot.
Take a look at the @anandtech
review of the Nexus 4 where it was benched in a freezer: anandtech.com/show/6440/goog…
The thermal limits to mobile processors are not broadly appreciated. The deliverable performance is much less than what specs indicate.
I had no idea that Windows virtualized files for compatibility with security. This caused me much grief today. answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/…
A $150k CNC machine with 1MByte of program memory. How is that even possible? haascnc.com/mt_spec1.asp?i…
Finished Avagadro Corp. I agree that the vector towards recognizable AI is probably mass statistical analysis of bulk human output.

Every GL driver should have to implement a const char * glEnumString( glEnum e ) instead of making thousands of developers do poor ones.
I wish Nvidia, ARM, Qualcomm, Imagination, and Google would collaborate on open source Android gfx tools instead of each implementing them.
Just finished the Unity roll-a-ball tutorial. Pretty neat!
The mechanical engineering on all the residential gates I have seen is piss poor.
First time I have ever wanted to use glGetTexLevelParameter(), and I am on ES. Sigh. Not complaining -- my use case was pretty dodgy.
This is beyond awesome. Think about it. One in five stars have planets in the habital zone.
ONE IN FIVE!
Relative ranking is often easier than absolute. There is probably some value for Amazon in asking for A/B comparisons of similar purchases.
Just finished "what to expect when no one's expecting". Demography can be quite sobering.
in the DFW airport today. I was always more of a straight arm bar guy, but respect the kimura!
I was considering that even drawn with vertex color vs compressed textures, subtle sky backdrops tax the limits of 8 bit sRGB.
Can modern GPUs dither higher precision values when writing to 8 bit buffer channels?
