taught one of our tiny BC-based vendors to used RAWcooked this week, which on the one hand, sort of begs the question of why they're the vendor (answer: we didn't want to bring physical scanning in-house, and we didn't want them to give us a billion DPX files if we could help it), but on the other will benefit a bunch of small archives around here in the future since this is pretty much the whole market.
sorta wish this work was more notable than "rainy island modernizes" but I'll take it
The first image received from Mars: an interplanetary color by numbers (JPL, 1965) http://www.directedplay.com/first-tv-image-of-mars
opened a truly disgusting bug today https://github.com/electron/electron-osx-sign/issues/240
v obscure mac ffmpeg q that isn’t too important: does anyone know whether the videotoolbox hwdec/hwenc APIs on newer Macs can expose the fixed-function hardware from the Intel CPU in addition to the T2, or does it just use the latter and totally ignore the former? I’ve spent too much time writing scripts that can do concurrent Intel decode + Nvidia encode on windows and just realized I might be able to do likewise here
as if I haven't spent enough of this year feeling like I'm revisiting every choice I made or interest I had in the past decade... decided to spend today finally migrating a whole bunch of reused passwords that finally got picked up in a breach. utterly utterly tedious stuff but basically no way to avoid it opsec wise, hooray
kind of surprised that there doesn’t seem to be a good docker webapp solution for self-hosting the archives of a podcast that you are no longer actively working on and don’t want to pay the hosting fee for indefinitely. I guess it wouldn’t be very discoverable without the RSS going directly to apple/spotify but it still seems like an obvious niche...
