Just occurred to me today that you younger folks who have the benefit of awesome tools like #blender might not even know that POV-RAY exists.

Pretty amazing what people are doing with this stately old piece of code these days. Check out the hall of fame, I think you'll find an image or two to be impressed by!

Many years ago, when computers were crawling, embryonic half formed things compared to what we use today, this thing was AMAZING and let anyone ray trace. It was *empowering*.

Whenever I talk about breaking DRM, I'm just joking. I'd never do anything like that, and I'd certainly never recommend that anyone download libdvdcss (which I've heard can be installed with apt-get using libdvd-pkg, or with dnf by enabling rpmfusion-free-release-tainted) to crack DVD DRM in a country where that kind of thing is illegal.

ROTFLMAO listening to this song it sounds like they keep saying @Shufei

Honestly I don't even know if it's wise to share content like this. In the past I've walked into a minefield where I shared an article on some thing, without knowing that Twitter had been talking about that thing for the past 48 hours and had already sorted themselves into different camps, so I got a bunch of angry replies telling me how wrong I was. Although I guess that's just how context collapse in social media works, in general. It's worse on Twitter but still happens here sometimes.

Apple is the Land’s End of computing. That’s all.


You'd think some privacy-minded fanatic would be all over it already, wouldn't you? The Conversations dev updates every three weeks, it seems, and busily adds to the XMPP standards. Where's that person for Apple's ecosystem?
