I think next year at SCaLE we should bring an old computer with OS/2 and run VLC on it. +Mike Melanson do you feel like helping us? :D

Today I went on a bit of a tourist run and stopped by the Hollywood's RockWalk on Sunset Boulevard. You cannot realise how interesting it has been for me to see B'z there, given I'm here as a #videolan developer.

Back in the days I worked mainly on xine, and Amarok wax still 1.4, I used to listen to Japanaradio. One day I got pissed at sometimes not being able to know the playing song as it only displayed "B" and started looking for the problem. A quick check later told me that the problem was termination of strings and it was a simple fix to make. Then I checked and a similar (yet not identical) bug was present on VLC.

This was, as far as I can remember, the first non-build/non-packager patch I sent to VLC.

So seeing B'z there was interesting to me. I almost forgot all about them.

Question for my photographer friends: Lightroom keeps mismatching the profile of my 11-16 lens with the previous version of the same brand, mostly because it does not provide enough metadata in the EXIF.

Is there any way to have Lightroom automatically match that particular lens to that particular profile?

+Janne Grunau According to the Amazon reviews, you can charge devices through the USB C port; you just have to hit the button on the battery pack before plugging it in.

+Eduardo Blanco was complaining today about DS-Lite and the lower performance of IPv4 network. And since I was already wondering about the traffic split between v6 and v4, I'm now trying to figure out how to get more useful information about what the actual impact of DS-Lite is.

We can throw bittorrent out, since as a P2P system its traffic depends on what people are using and people are most definitely using IPv4 out there.

All Google services and Facebook are available over IPv6, so that's easy. Twitter is not, nor are most of the AWS-based services.

Streaming services: Netflix and iTunes are IPv6 ready, Crunchyroll is not.

Games: Steam downloads are done through IPv4, which is probably the biggest hit for my usage profile. PS3 does not know what IPv6 is, I have not checked PS4 or xbox360 yet.

Microsoft services seem to still be running over IPv4 only. And same seems to be true for nVidia's GeForce Experience. I will check whether Lightroom uses IPv6 for export plugins.

I think DS-Lite deployments would be much smoother if only a few more services were upgraded to support IPv6 properly. Right now opting in, or being opted in, means you do have a number of performance problems (although not as bad as some of the WiFi problems one would have), so it would not be a welcome change for users.

On the other hand, at least Virgin Media Ireland is likely going to push more of this as it goes: their 360Mbit offer is "forcing" new gateways in their customers home, as 11n is not good enough for that, and new users appear to be enabled for DS-Lite by default, and since these will likely make the all-in-one Horizon Box obsolete (it's only 11n-compatible, and it does not support DS-Lite), they can probably push more people over DS-Lite.

I think teredo still is up, but no I don't see that many v6 peers nowadays. On the other hand I do not use it that often anymore, either.

Okay switched UPC/Virgin Media router again, and this one theoretically supports bridge mode (couldn't get it to work), and definitely supports DHCPv6 prefix delegation (+Fabio Erculiani would be happy). Much less mucking around to get IPv6 locally.

For +andrew mcmillan and +Fabio Erculiani pleausre:

I got a new Virgin Media cable router (Ubee). It supports DS-Lite (and I already had opted in for IPv6 trial, even though it was not supported by the previous router), but no bridge mode (booh!).

On the other hand I managed (with lots of help from +Srdjan Rosic) to get my buffalo to double-NAT IPv4, and to relay IPv6 pass-through to the router, which means I have working IPv6 and ability to use iptables to filter it. YAI!

I spent enough time sealing with customers in my previous life that I won't assume that even a significant proportion of UPC customers would have those needs.

Also have you ever tried getting dibbler or dhcpcd to work correctly with pd? I have. It's a pain.

So I realized today that zopflipng is available in Gentoo stable, so I took a moment to re-compress all the PNGs served by my assets repository (which include most of the images for my blog posts as well as the actual backgrounds and buttons and so on.

In six cases, the recompressed PNG ended up being smaller than the previously generated webp, so I removed those. This will cause cache to be invalidated for Chrome users, but luckily the hit is minimal compared to what it'll save for using the same file for all browsers.

Okay sent a pull request to fix the crash, but now checking the current HEAD of zopfli, some of the same images compress at a bigger size...

What's the easiest/cheapest way to procure myself a couple of dozens of broken hdds? Not harvesting motors, other pieces. I could stop by Weird Stuff on my next trip and just bring them back on the checked luggage but I'm a bit tight with connections.

Well, at least I know that Virgin Media upload to Amazon eu-ie Glacier zone works like a charm. It's been uploading for almost a day at 3MB/s sustained, which is pretty sweet.

And yes, I'm copying all my pictures to Glacier because it's worth it. I just wonder if I should create a new archive next time or try to sync the moved files (I have a bunch of files I need to move around). I guess I can manage somehow.
