This could've been the soundtrack if Star Wars had been an Italo Western

Heh - I'm not the only one who got a The Thing vibe from The Hateful Eight :-)
It's well known that Quentin Tarantino had John Carpenter's The Thing in mind when making The Hateful Eight. The intention of this video essay is to show…

Multiple shaders within Shadertoy

I've blogged a bit about the shadertoy progress in the last two weeks on blogs.perl.org:

Experimenting with MP4 videos

Hopefully the quality is better than the re-encoded gif...

No, and you also lose autoplay. On the upside, you don't get autoplay, and it is much, much smaller than the GIF.

Modern OpenGL with Perl

http://blogs.perl.org/users/max_maischein/2016/10/modern-opengl-with-perl.html

Next stop are maybe jwz's screensavers or some more Shadertoys from https://www.shadertoy.com
For a long time, I've wanted to actually make use of the modern hardware I have at home. The graphics card is capable of OpenGL and OpenGL now has a fancy little language to actually bring images to life. For example [https://www.shadertoy.com] has great so-called "shaders" that show off what ...

That's great to hear!

I'm also really happy to report that the thing works on my Windows 10 laptop which has an Intel integrated GPU, so OpenGL 4 might be more available than I thought!

Expect a stream of pretty pictures generated by other people's code as soon as I create a small Perl script to take a screenshot and upload it :-)

Image Distortion with App::ShaderToy

I've added bitmap loading and live editing to the ShaderToy application, which makes editing shaders interactively so much more fun.

Shadertoy Progress and the State of OpenGL in Perl

I've worked some more on supporting more shaders and making the application support the keyboard better.

And Google+ really ruins that GIF by re-encoding it. Ah well. Visit the link or install the program ;)

"these free software people are all a bunch of commies"

I explained in detail that Futurism was a popular style of propaganda art on all sides of the early 20th century conflicts; it was not used only by the Soviets and the Chinese, but also by US in their own propaganda, particularly in recruitment posters and just about everything the WPA did, and even by the Red Cross. So if you looked at our branding and it made you think of Communism, well, I'm sorry, but that's just a deep misunderstanding of Modern Art history: this is merely what poster art looked like in the 1930s, regardless of ideology!

I trolled them so hard.
I'm going to draw a line through 1930s agitprop, Ronald Reagan, methane-breathing zombie space aliens, the Mozilla logo, Barack Obama and the International Commiunist Conspiracy. It's a long walk, so please stick with me. Let's start with They Live. I've talked to a number of people recently who haven't seen They Live, and that's a real tragedy, because even though it is technically a sci-fi ...

I've released a new Perl module, MIME::Detect[1] and also blogged about it [2]. MIME::Detect allows convenient file type detection using the database from freedesktop.org. The important part is that it doesn't use the shared database of the machine so you can use it under Windows and also for self-contained applications.

^In what is a somewhat mild case of yak-shaving, I need a portable way of identifying file types in several situations. For example, when indexing files for Dancer::SearchApp or when handling user uploads, I want to somewhat reliably identify various files. I want to determine their type without ...
