Infinitely zoomable world of pixels Anonymous 10/26/2021 (Tue) 18:21:39 No. 5914 [Reply]
Is this idea possible, /t/echnerds? You would have a publically accessible canvas like https://ourworldofpixels.com/ or https://pxls.space/, but you could zoom out as far as you want (given memory limitations) and zoom in as far as you want (given memory limitations). Would this be possible with infinite precision arithmetic / bignums? I feel like I'm just being dumb here but I want to put the idea out there and ask just in case.

>>5933 no, svg are just drawing instructions, theres no pixel data, the pixel array gets calculated on render thats what makes it scalable, you can have subpixel preservation this way, you can zoom out until everything is merged into a single pixel and still be able to zoom back in without a difference this file has 1/2 pixel width and height, if you scale it you will get the exact same image as before even though it should technically only be a single pixel if it was a raster file put this in css and expand the thumbnail to see the image zoomed .imgExpanded, video { animation: zoom 25s ease alternate infinite; } @keyframes zoom { 0% { transform: scale(1.0); } 100% { transform: scale(441.0); } }

>>5935 I know that. That's why I put 'pixelated' in 'scare quotes'. Without infinite precision as you zoom in there will be gaps between least significant figures where you can't put any lines. That being said, I assume numbers in SVGs already have infinite precision and size due to being written in text (you can write as many digits as you want before and after the decimal point) unless there is for some reason some arbitrary limitation that I don't know about. However, decimal in ASCII is an inefficient format and the canvas area can become indefinitely large and complex so maybe it's worth creating a new binary SVG, possibly with EBML or something, that uses the entire 8 bits of each byte, or as much as you can get.

Holy shit this is slow. I never tried a "green" hard drive before and this is the last time I ever waste my time on these pieces of shit. Ever bought something only to regret it the very moment you started using it? If so what was it?

Flatpak and Friends Anonymous 06/10/2020 (Wed) 10:02:59 No. 413 [Reply]
What's your opinion on the concept of these newfangled package managers having sandboxing, enabling backwards compatibility and having a one-build-fits-all-distros mentality? Is it bloat, or the right way to go about solving such problems? Personally, I use Flatpak to handle games, so my system doesn't actually have any 32 bit libraries installed by my distro's package manager, anything 32 bit's managed entirely by Flatpak, separate from everything else. As well as isolating propietary software, since most games are, and Steam too. Since I don't use programs with Qt 5 much, I've decided to get rid of the ones I've installed natively and installed the ones I do need on Flatpak, that way I can get rid of Qt 5 as well.

Looking for chart of all imageboard software Anonymous 10/07/2021 (Thu) 20:33:14 No. 5626 [Reply]
Hello friends and family! I am looking for an image of a diagram/chart of all the imageboard software. It was originally posted on 8chan's tech board in 2019: http://web.archive.org/web/20190622041930/https://8ch.net/tech/res/1059807.html Sadly archive.org has blacklisted the media files domain for 8chan and it's not on archive.today either. So if any oldfag here has the image, it would be much appreciated.

I am definitely very excited for windows 10, why am I still recommended to use debian and windows 10 is the only one that has game support, I like to play games and the problem with linux is that it just doesn't run or else it runs more with a lot of workarounds but what the hell. Absolutely thinking I could be a hacker but I can't, I hope you guys can help me with this with magic, I really believe in the damn multiverse and I even talked to my other self in high school. Maybe I am Schizo

I found an interesting look site which interviews people asking them what hardware/software they use for their life/work/projects. There are some interesting people on there like Bram Moolenaar (https://usesthis.com/interviews/bram.moolenaar/), this lady who has some godtier taste (https://usesthis.com/interviews/alice.maz/), and plenty of faggots. Maybe you'll find some interesting work setups or you can share your Windows 10 + Beats by Dre. setup.

>>2105 >Ask another person to look over it. Make sure that person is not just a yes-man That's the problem I don't have friends, asking randoms is a bad idea. Writing long and tedious papers is a pain in the ass. I just need a service that would check my writing personality and my grammar. For example my personality involves the usage of unpopular words and simplifying the definition of it.

>>3111 Old news I guess but I just came across Debian's stance regarding this. They had a vote on April with 8 options >Choice 1: Call for the FSF board removal, as in rms-open-letter.github.io >Choice 2: Call for Stallman's resignation from all FSF bodies >Choice 3: Discourage collaboration with the FSF while Stallman is in a leading position >Choice 4: Call on the FSF to further its governance processes >Choice 5: Support Stallman's reinstatement, as in rms-support-letter.github.io >Choice 6: Denounce the witch-hunt against RMS and the FSF >Choice 7: Debian will not issue a public statement on this issue >Choice 8: Further Discussion 4 commie options, 2 non subversive options 2 neutral options. The system they use to select the winner seems rather complicated and I don't have the time to go through it but the non subversive options appear to have been eliminated due to not even receiving enough votes to be considered and ultimately option 7 ended up winning. https://www.debian.org/vote/2021/vote_002

It takes me a while to get around to playing new games, but you posting those screenshots here caused me to notice your game, I would never have found it on moddb if it had not been purged by the threats from that rude and silly gynocentric troll. Large-Scale city generation, interesting.

Brainlet here, Is this real? A joke? A scam? I don't understand most of the concepts here but I'm pretty sure that running a hash function over and over again doesn't do anything useful. Or am I wrong? She's asking people to tip BTC to gain COMB so it smells like a scam
