How to write a good bug report for video bugs ...... so that we have a chance to reproduce it. (Photo by Chris Murray on Unsplash, cropped to fit here) In the end of the day, developers can only fix bugs they can analyze or see. This is especially valid for video bugs. If you encounter a video bug, like e.g. video flickers, shows green or purple blotches, does not play at all, shows an error message, please fill out the https://vivaldi.com/bugreport/ form in the following way: Affected product *: select Vivaldi browser Type of issue *: select Problem / Defect Summary *: A short description in one sentence. Please don't try to make the sentence longer than absolutely needed, because it will be the headline in the Bugtracker and there is only limited space for each headline. Everything that is too long gets cut off...
How to tame the Windows ThumbnailerWait, what? The Windows thumbnailer is a feature which allow to see previews* of files when you are in thumbnail mode in windows explorer. Which Windows I need? Tested with windows10, but I'm pretty sure will work even on 7 and on 8/8.1. Maybe even vista. Even if the cache is hardly changed, I can't assure it works with XP or previous. Try on your risk. What files are covered? Actually, any media file should be covered, but windows only fetch some of them (due lack of codecs): Audio files (mp3,wma,flac,ogg,..): I don't the see the point to preview audio files as you can't listen the preview at all. Image files (png,gif,jpg,bmp,...): Windows cover most of them, but sometimes don't fetch thumbs for newer file types like for example the .webp. Video files (avi,mp4,mkv,flv): Windows has several troubles here. Why? As several videos use codecs which aren't shipped with windows, so the preview is not possible. Other files (txt,doc,swf,pdf): These types are a bit particular. So, the thumbnail may work or not as aren't fetched with the aid of a codec. Txt and doc previews never worked on explorer for what I know...

How To Block Unwanted Emails on OutlookBlock unwanted mail in foreign languages or from specific countries If you want to stop receiving email messages in foreign languages that you don’t know, switch to the last tab of the Junk E-mail Options dialog, International tab. This tab provides the following two options: Blocked Top-Level Domains List. This list lets you block email messages from specific countries or regions. For example, if you select CN (China) or IN (India), then you will stop receiving any messages if a sender’s address that ends with .cn or .in. Though, nowadays when nearly everyone has gmail or outlook.com accounts, this option will hardly help you get rid of many junk emails. And this brings us to the second option that looks much more promising. Blocked Encodings List. This list enables you to eliminate all unwanted e-mail messages formatted in a specific language encoding, i...

Doctor Who - RosaDoctor Who (2005) Season 11 – Episode 3 Air Date: 21st October 2018, 18:55 (GMT) Writer: Malorie Blackman Straight off the bat let me just say that I'm naturally inclined towards the more futuristic or overtly scientific episodes of Doctor Who - historical adventures are fine but I'm generally not one to get a kick out of historical events or figures. Meeting Rosa Parks in this adventure was interesting but when our heroes start enthusing and gushing about a person who actually existed (Sadly Mrs Parks passed away in 2005), and repeatedly pressing home how important they were, it is hard to shake off the feeling I'm sitting through a school lesson rather than indulging in some breezy escapism. (I'll also mention I was a touch distracted throughout yesterday by meeting a lady online the who may possibly become my new girlfriend, so an argument can be made that my heart wasn't really in the viewing experience) I want to make very clear, however, that none of my personal feelings should be allowed to tarnish the message concerning Rosa Parks herself. What she accomplished in her life was utterly awe-inspiring; we should ALL be thankful for her object lesson in how to make the world a better place. To have suffered all her life, as many Black people did and still do, only to be recognised fifty years later by a Congressional Medal of Honor...is appalling. Her name rightly deserves to live on for all time. but for something far more inspiring than a simple space rock - Let's sort that out, Humanity, eh? That we now have an episode of Doctor Who showcasing her achievement is only fitting...
Weeks 5 & 6: Papers and PrepI missed last week's update. I've been spending time browsing papers and prepping a presentation. Reviewing papers There are lots of articles (both scientific and otherwise) lying around on the web. For computer science focused ones, here are some links that are quite useful: dblp - A library of CS papers organised by type and venue. ACM CSUR - Surveys conducted in computer science IEEE Conferences - Systematisation of Knowledge papers are of note Surveys and SoKs give a good "rounding up" of the state of things in a particular domain of work, and can be an interesting starting point. Of course, they are very specific so of limited use otherwise. Prepping for Prezzing When the bible talks about avoiding temptation, it's referring to the dangers of powerpoint I'll be attending a SICSA event at the end of the month, where i'll be demoing, along with my supervisor, a platform I had built that ended up being used and evaluated in a course. The work begins on planning this and setting it all up. Using Nvivo As part of the prep for that talk, I'll be trying to code some responses from students about how they felt interacting with the platform. I'll be using
My Photo WorkflowLooking at things, taking pictures. Back in the day I got asked by Dantesoft if I could share my photo processing workflow. Of course I can! It used to be quite elaborate, but these days it is quite simple. Asset Management The first thing to consider is where your photos will end up. After many different configurations I have ended up putting everything into Apple Photos. There are three reasons I ended up here: It lets me carry my entire library with me, on one or more devices Basic versioning, letting me store the original photo while still only seeing the edited version Live Photos and good video support In addition, I also appreciate the "Moments" feature, where it creates contextual albums from metadata...
