WebAssembly SIMD conversion of dav1d AV1 decoder is up to a 28% reduction in decode time for my sample file in Chrome Canary, versus non-SIMD version with the same compiler. Nice!
Hoping to approach 50% reduction once can remove a couple V8 bug workarounds, and vectorize some more functions... There are also upcoming compiler improvements for the LLVM WebAssembly backend which should help overall code speed.
Unbelievable. The Cryptographer’s Panel at @RSAConference@twitter.com 2019 is missing Adi Shamir (the “S” in RSA), who was unable to secure a US visa.
Adi in a video to #RSAC: “Perhaps it's time we rethink the question of how and where we organize our major scientific conference."
Are there people blessed with erlang/mnesia knowledge out there? I'd like to clean a DB, remove a bunch of lines, GUI not adversed.
Thank you Swear_Trek, thank you.
@Sheinicorn And sometimes a commitment to do it halfway is the difference between doing it 100% and 0%.
When I'm procrastinating doing something, I sometimes change the task from "do the thing" to "spent 5 minutes on the thing". It relieves the pressure to complete the task, and more often than not I spent more than 5 minutes and make some progress, which is better than no progress because of procrastination.
@jpmens I remember gopher, and archie for that matter.
A time before search engines, when you had to know where to find what you were after.
It's easy to get discouraged and feel like your posts online don't make a ripple. I feel that way pretty often.
Imposter syndrome, feeling stuck, and self-hatred can sneak up.
But every now and then I notice that I'm making some genuine friendships and connecting with artists I've admired for years.
What you do does matter. Don't give up.
I love open source. Information Security is important to me. I work on Icecast in my free time.
A nice little Mastodon instance. Mild trolling encouraged (keep it local), but not required. Malicious behaviour is not tolerated. Follow Wheaton's law and you'll be fine.
