This is the best thing I've seen in years. Bravo to +Fusion Cine for allowing this to happen! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wnHLlPOazc

+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

They are THE SAME ARCHITECTURE. Why not? Oh, cause reasons...
 
Comic up! Ripped from the MS headlines today. “Makes sense to me…” http://www.myextralife.com/comic/makes-sense-to-me/
About this comic. I'm actually pretty excited about the idea. But I think it's a little weird, that since they own the Windows platform already, that they don't just release games like Halo 5 and the like on PC natively? Bonkers. But then again, this has been bonkers for 11 years or so. :) ...

I really want people to know the essence behind +Daniel Suarez's Daemon, but currently I have to let them commit to reading an entire book or audiobook to get the concepts within it. A feature film would be so much easier to point stuff out with.

This video brought up #daemon in my mind recently by how a single trigger can cause the world to change in an instant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4GB_NDU43Q

This happened in Australia over the last few years. There is now no Sony stores in Sydney (2 kiosks remain open), and its !makes you wonder how Sony remain viable without a retail presence.

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.

So I was curious on how to play Gamejolt Unity 3D games offline and if that was possible.

Turns out there are hidden protections that prevent you from doing so if you do not set it up correctly.

I was able to find the .unity3d file easily in FF's Page Info under the "Media" tab and retrieve the file. Saved it to my desktop and figured you just launched it to run it since .unity3d files are all self contained, right?

Turns out if you run it in the browser, Gamejolt added an extra layer of protection injected into the .unity3d file that runs as JS or an XSS exploit to ensure the embed is running on THEIR page. This is however very easy to get around: NoScript.

Once again, NoScript saves the day once you allow the embed to run, and it will block the JS or XSS vulnerability that forces you to the online page. You can now run Unity 3D files from Gamejolt offline.

Aside from Gamejolt rootkitting your system, this seems to be the way to play them offline without it forcing you back to the webpage.

One of my cats chewed the power cord from my moms Surface Pro 3 a few months ago.  I finally took time to fix it and it works.  These pictures were taken after I soldered the wires together.
