    I think the best way is to do it like the weekly new releases are done. Just list your songs and have a song.link URL available that can guide people to any platform of their choosing. And if a songlink isn't available you can make your own with it.

    Yeah when I posted this the album wasn't officially released yet. I found the playlist through this tweet by Thank You Scientist where you could stream it early and it just happened to be the Youtube playlist. I think the videos are still unlisted there. :P

  6. Comment on Setting aside the musical content (if you can), what are the best music videos you know? in ~music

    Bauke Link
    I'm not sure you could call it a music video per se but I really like the style of Jessica Jones' opening sequence. I love the way it shows depth and the colors they used blend really well together.

    I'm not familiar with IntelliJ Idea at all but I'm guessing it hasn't installed anything? Did you run vagrant up at all? Have you looked at the development setup page, that should get you a working box to start with.

    Edit: I just checked in my install and the path for me is /opt/venvs/tildes/bin/python in the Vagrant box, maybe you're using a path that doesn't exist?

  9. Comment on Salsify: Better real-time video in ~comp

    The FAQ kind of answers it with the comparison to VP9 (which is AV1's predecessor):

    The FAQ kind of answers it with the comparison to VP9 (which is AV1's predecessor):

    How is it possible that a VP8 encoder written by one graduate student in a few months can outperform production-grade VP9 and H.264 encoders?
    Because it’s not a fair fight between codecs—Salsify is a different way of putting the pieces (compression and transmission) together, not a new compression format. To the extent these results persuade you of anything, they should make you think that in the domain of Internet videoconferencing, further innovation in video codecs may have reached the point of diminishing returns, but video systems still have lots of low-hanging fruit.

    You can also add bookmarks with a little bit of JavaScript in them that changes the theme cookie to whichever you want, described more in this ~tech wiki page.

    It's the perfect place to convey this kind of important message to people, the dev links to it at the top of the README as well as the changelog so it's not like it's hidden away. Plus it allows people to comment on the matter without having to go through a blog or some other website, potentially getting other devs to organize and fork and start it up again. The development is centered around the GitHub repository so using an issue to tell people the development is shutting down is one of the best ways of doing it.

    Plenty of projects that have shut down have done it this way, so I'll ask you: why not?

    Continuing work on my chart renderer which I started making purely because the one I was told to use is kind of crap. It started out as a joke because there's quite a bunch of parts that it requires but after the idea stewing in my brain for a few hours I figured it would be completely possible to build something because the modern web is well... Modern now. Using just the available APIs like canvas and the great features in the browser it's already functional and you can create a chart up to a pretty damn high resolution, like 12500 by 12500. And there's a bunch more features planned that I can't wait to get to. I'm also thrilled that this has all been possible using nothing but JavaScript and so far uses no libraries from NPM or something. The UI and UX still needs a lot of polish though, but that will come later!
