I've started collecting the pop-art AVX2 accelerating ctx is turning the ctx test compositing intoat ctx.graphics/glitch/

on the subject of usb-c have you seen pcb-only usb ports? scribe the right sigils into your circuit board design program and choose the right thickness and you can just plug a cable straight into your pcb with no port hardware

I am tuning and optimizing ctx.graphics/ for performance, and as things get faster what was noise in initial benchmarks start mattering. Things like branch order/hints, data types for variables and unaligned vs aligned fetches from data structures.

Asking for financial help 

Hey folks, it feels a bit rude to ask again, but I’m still struggling to find work right now and don’t have much money left. I don’t have enough to pay rent or bills right now. If you can spare it, I would really appreciate if you could help me out.

oh my gods. they literally have no shame about this.

GitHub Support just straight up confirmed in an email that yes, they used all public GitHub code, for Codex/Copilot regardless of license.

Color managed 32bit float, RGB and CMYK filled bezier paths has landed in GEGL, not used by GIMP yet, but it provides fidelity that can be important for future features like vector layers.

In other words: GitHub, stop laundering copyright. If you trained Copilot on GPL code, you are obliged to release that derived product as GPL. If you trained it on MPL code, you are in violation of that license.

Incremental improvements to the adaptive vertical-supersampling rasterizer of ctx.graphics/ . Ctx is now faster than cairo for all RGBA8 source-over-normal cases \o/ - solid colors practically tied ... linear gradients sources are 7.5x times faster!

ctx.graphics/rasterizer/#perfo

Having fun profiling results, while connected to AC - cairo is faster, while on battery power ctx.graphics/ is faster.
Maybe different the difference is different baseline CPU speeds, and on battery power there is more headroom for turbo boost with the AVX2 code paths.

WHY DO SO MANY COOL OPEN SOURCE WEB APPLICATIONS DEPEND ON DOCKER, HOLY SHIT LEARN HOW TO WRITE PROPER SETUP DOCUMENTATION :blobcattableflip:

I refuse to run Docker containers inside of Linux Containers so my options are…
- Install manually and make upgrading a pain in the ass
- Don't use the app

As much as I would *love* to use it, the reliance on Docker for managing 100% of the stack is a *hard* no. Figuring out how the image has changed between releases would make manual maintenance absolute hell and I am unwilling to shoulder that burden.

Not everyone is *able* to use Docker and not everyone is *willing* to use Docker. By not supporting any other deployment method, you are preventing some individuals from using what could be *the* application they've spent years looking for.

Let the admin decide how to architect their own systems. They know their backend better than you do.

Greetings mamsirs!

English as a second language is important for understanding, Important enough that perhaps it should be part of school in native-english speaking countries? It seems like this shortcoming is more common with higher socio-economic status/education.

If Sheep.org has Wolf.com on its advisory board, it can mean one of two things, either:

1. They don’t understand the relationship between wolves and sheep, or,

2. They aren’t really sheep either.

This is a personal favourite: It's so timeless, the fruit & veg guy in his socks & hoodie, it could be today! But it's actually 112 years ago. Taken in a souk in the Tunis medina, Tunisia, this autochrome by Gervais-Courtellemont is original colour from 1909. It's not colourised.

#GIMP 2.99.6 is out ! And a cool Wilber & co. comics strip by Aryeom under CC by-sa license, as usual ! 🙂

« GIMP 2.99.6 is out with new/experimental features. Highlights: off-canvas guides, pinch zoom on touchpads, improved Paint Select tool (unstable), and more. Flatpak and Win installer available, no news on macOS builds yet (we encourage contributions!) »

@JordiGH also, if the spooks use the software in something clandestine/classified, how would the license holder even know?
