Disclaimer: They edited the video on a 60p timeline then sourced their footage in 24p. This is not a true demonstration yet.

4K 60p YouTube videos are coming. Since they want to force everyone on VP9, make sure your GPU or CPU has hardware VP9 decoding acceleration at 4K and 60 frames. (those are likely a year out, so for now, only software rendering can play it back properly on a high end system)

I just signed this. If you care about your privacy, you should too. https://killc51.ca/?sid=1148989
The government has just rammed its reckless, dangerous, and ineffective Bill C-51 through Parliament. Tell Ottawa leaders they should promise to repeal this extreme legislation.

Another example of terrible video quality in the form of vertical video syndrome AND 240p combined. This went viral too. All TV stations had to crop the video further to lessen the vertical video syndrome effect and it made the quality worse.

LEARN TO HOLD IN LANDSCAPE FOR VIDEO!

This video should not exist at this resolution... Vertical Video Syndrome + 240p = YUCK. It'll be worse at 144p. A news station in Canada ran with this video upscaling and cropping for vertical video syndrome... (Which made it WORSE)

Oh yeah, and this is related to Elon Musk and the Tesla Powerwall...

Yeah video quality is crap, but it is awesome as well. Wish I had the money for that setup.

As someone with Asperger's Syndrome, this is something that really affects me and I have great difficulty regarding this. If you're a fellow Aspie, reshare this wherever you can. http://globalnews.ca/video/1919991/researcher-studying-autism-sexuality

One of the few HoloLens prototypes Microsoft had has been destroyed trying to be sent into Space on the SpaceX Falcon, which disintegrated on launch: https://twitter.com/ShuttleAlmanac/status/615164705225637889

Under the U.S. Sarbanes-Oxley Act, clearing your browser history could get you a felony charge for destroying records in a federal investigation — whether you realize you're under investigation or not.

To any desktop widget devs that need external data from websites/RSS, have you had the misfortune of being hit with an IP ban from the site you're pulling from? If testing iterations require you to refresh the widget, you can see how this can easily lead to an IP ban. #Rainmeter

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.
