Forgot to share this pic to here. My 15 seconds of fame as a +Reviews on the Run camera operator.

Forget Dragons: 'Game of Thrones' Smites Spy Drones

HBO's set in Northern Ireland is protected by a 'no-drone-zone.' I like to imagine enforcement is suitably dramatic (CUT TO: CGI dragon incinerating drone in mid-flight)...
Top-secret filming on the HBO fantasy epic has been protected by a no-fly zone over the set in Northern Ireland.

+Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ  Drone waiters have arrived. It'd be cool to setup this tracking tech in the TWiT studio to bring drinks from the kitchen to the studio. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-31160853

Just putting this out there to any #Rainmeter skin devs: If someone initially releases code under CC Share Alike, but then changes his mind and changes to No Derivative works, but his source is still Share Alike, is there still a valid defense for No Derivative works if he didn't update his source to reflect that?

Asking cause I noticed a license mismatch with a popular Rainmeter skin.

I don't think that's how it's going to work. His license can only be applied to the code he registered. How that code interacts with other people's code has no bearing on it. DLLs are shared libraries. Just because they connect to other functions does not mean they have the nexus of control moved to them. Google has a mix of open and closed code. It's pretty clear when developers go looking which is which.

I can't think of what advantage this small developer would have when it came to pursuing people using his new code license. He's better off to collect for licensing than he is spending it in court. He would only pursue (I am assuming) should someone else take his new licensed code and put it into other products which are licensed. If other people making open source code decide they need his code then they license it.

I also don't think the "market" for his code is all that big. If those who use it now decide to use someone else's code from here forward he won't get much in the way of license fees. But it's a calculation every developer makes in the open source community.

Guess who's Nexus 4's 5Ghz radio just started dying? Yesterday and since late summer 2013 my Nexus 4 had been able to connect flawlessly to our home 5Ghz network through channel 149. Today, the signal disappears whenever the phone tries to connect.

This seems to be more common now considering the aging population of Nexus 4s. The problem simply lies that the signal just immediately cuts off when the phone tries to connect to the 5Ghz network, and only on that phone, all other devices are fine.

I've tried the suggested Channel 44 or 48 fix and it's the same exact issue, which leads me to suggest the Nexus 4's 5ghz radio is prone to hardware failure after 1 year.

Yes, I am on 4.3, but I have been running fine for this setup since August 2013 and it only began acting up today, which would mean it's hardware failure related.

Edit: I've now correlated that if you have a Murata Wifi chip in your phone, don't expect it to last long. Every iPhone since the 4S uses that chip.

Edit 2: Tried a completely different router on 5Ghz in a completely different home, ditto. The actual hardware for 5Ghz is dead on the Murata chip. 2.4Ghz still works fine.

So +Alex Lindsay, how come no one minds that #Wirecast does not work with a native interlaced workflow? If you feed it 1080i, it should output 1080i, not process the 1080i in-mixer to 1080p30...

You pay $1000 bucks for something that can't handle retaining the fields...

(This was on Windows BTW, YMMV on Mac)

Wondered what audio and video compression threw away? This is what you're missing. http://io9.com/listen-to-all-the-stuff-mp3-compression-leaves-out-1686279060
MP3s have become so ubiquitous that we often forget it's a compression format. When music gets trimmed to one-tenth of its original size, lots of information deemed "unimportant" gets tossed out. Here's what we're missing.

H.264 throws away a ton of data. For 1080p YouTube videos, it takes 1.5Gbps down to 4Mbps.

CANADA ONLY

Shomi in Canada (for Rogers Cable and Shaw Cable customers only) has the full season of "Transparent" available right now for streaming. For those in Canada unable to get Amazon Prime, you can now watch the series on Shomi.

The comedy series 'Transparent' is a hit in Canada only days after premiering exclusively on shomi.
