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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
