tl;dr: I broke my tablet, I fixed my tablet. Like a boss.

I broke my tablet's screen. Took three months for the new screen to arrive and like 2 hours to chip the old glass off the bezel. But I fixed it. I've got a minor issue where the one part of the bezel isn't adhering to the glass, but that can be solved another day.

Today's project (the last one for this week) is a bit more resource intensive. It uses WebGL (through three.js) and a version of bullet compiled to JavaScript using emscripten. It's a little slow even on my rather beefy machine. I would chalk that up to the physics library not being as optimized as it could be, but that's just my speculation. I really know almost nothing about those things. I could be the browser as well. But the rendering is fast.

There is a javascript library that provides a really nice way to adjust parameters and such, but I didn't feel like adding another thing when just getting the balls to bounce took me such a long (longer than it should have) time to get working.

Yes, if you were born on the 29th, (I actually know someone who was) you'll just have to wait till 2016.

Hey all, I've realized that I don't really use G+ anymore. I guess I'm just not as social an animal as the rest. If you still want to see things from me, you can check out my new website. I wish I could leave a good bye message, and then remove G+, but as it stands, you probably wouldn't see the message that way. So instead, I'm going to leave it connected for a while so that you see this, and then delete it.

All those installing Portal 2 for linux. Even though it say's beta in parenthesis beside the name, you have to opt into the beta. When you are opted in, it will say beta twice. Once in parenthesis and once in brackets. You MUST do this, else you won't have the linux files.

scrub style those sloop mince!
Behold, my fourth project this week:
http://rehack.me/passwords/
Yes, YAPG (yet another password generator). But this one uses random.org in conjunction with the diceware method. If you don't think it's random enough, you can't blame me for not trying.

I only used 1900 words. No need to be paranoid. ;)

So I've got a vga only monitor that I want to hook up to my computer. The problem is, I've only one DVI-I port (the kind you can convert to vga) on my graphics card. I have another one on my motherboard for the gpu built into my cpu. I've read on phoronix and other places that there are ways to have one gpu copy from the other. My motherboard does NOT have Ion. Is copying from main (NVIDIA) gpu to the intel one possible? I'm running the proprietary driver. GTX 660

As per my comment above I've got it working. It takes some fiddling with xrandr to get working, but it works great.
