See, they wanted to call the DirectX -> Vulkan layer "IndirectX" but found out the term was already used for something else!

Specifically, for Indirect X Rendering over the GLX/Xorg pipeline using the LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 Mesa flag to use the older indirect OpenGL renderer for remote X connections

"We have IndirectX at home" :p

I despise soft power switches on computers. In fact, not only do I want proper "cut the fucking power to this hunk of junk right now" buttons, I want them to be huge Edwardian knife switches like this.

Throw thew huge lever. An almighty clunk happens. The OS vanishes. The display goes dark.

As the computer gods intended.

COMPUTER IN THE 2000's: Yep here you go champ

COMPUTER IN THE 2020's: I stored 10,000 identical copies of what you were doing in 500 different global datacentres at a carbon footprint equivalent to leaving a semi-trailer idling 24/7 and also sent a copy to the FBI just to be safe. Let me know which one you want and I'll do my best to figure it out. By the way here are 10 things which are similar to what you were doing and 9 of them are ads. Do you like this?

New blog post: An update about my Rust implementation of Galileo OSNMA. OSNMA is a protocol, currently in test, used to authenticate cryptographically the data in the Galileo EU GNSS. Two years ago I published a Rust implementation of this protocol.

in reply to Daniel Estévez

In December 2023 there was a public key revocation exercise as part of the system tests. I have recorded and published the data, and report on what happened and how my software processes the scenario correctly.
in reply to Daniel Estévez loic_fejoz reshared this.

Finally, I give an overview of the state of open-source OSNMA implementations. All other implementations I've found are in Python (not suitable for embedded microcontrollers) and under a copyleft license (or no license). So my galileo-osnma implementation in Rust with MIT + Apache license still occupies a singular position.

This looks pretty good, although I haven't quite yet figured out how it works.

I used to use Video Analyzer to explain video codecs to students, but it's unmaintained for 7 years, it also doesn't let you load just any video (needs a h265 yuv stream)
https://github.com/gabrieldiego/VideoAnalyzer

I found it slightly easier to get to the parts I want to explain (blocks, motion vectors), maybe it's also interesting to you.

You can see me using it here starting at 15:40 https://docs.claudiuscoenen.de/2022-WS-G1C/docs/2023-02-03-Video/#videocodec (german, sorry)
