LogarithmicSpiral via the FAQ (86 comments)

Vash makes extensive use of structure, intensity, and position in its image generation. Despite its visually striking and distinctive impact, color plays only a small role in differentiating between Vash images.

In the video he said he knew the Arduino was unnecessary for the current task, but he planned on expanding the project. He also wanted to turn out the lights in the room.

LogarithmicSpiral Re:desktop clutter? no thanks. (384 comments)

I don't even have the recycle bin on there... I like to look at my wallpaper without it getting covered up. Now that I think of it, I usually shift+delete everything anyway, so I have no real use for the recycle bin in the first place.

Researchers Convert Mouth Movements Into Speech

LogarithmicSpiral Another use: (154 comments)

Find out what someone is saying across the room. See what people are talking about that they don't want you to hear. Or just be nosy. Sure, the camera probably has to be really close to a mouth to work correctly, but that doesn't prevent a determined snoop to surreptitiously video someone's face and then use some editing software to zoom in on the mouth and/or get rid of all the other useless information.

TI-Nspire Hack Enables User Programming

LogarithmicSpiral Re:ti in the past never really supported assembly/ (88 comments)

True. It is also possible to program in z80 asm for at least the 83/84. I messed around with that a bit. Just download the appropriate software, assemble the code on your pc and send it to the calculator. It's really great if you can get an emulator working so you don't have to constantly mess with the TI linking software for every debug/test, and of course the possibility of bricking your calculator inherent with assembly. Ah, good times.

Go For a Masters, Or Not?

LogarithmicSpiral Re:Experience paper (834 comments)

Even fresh out of school with a B.S. you still have no experience. When applying with a B.S. you'll still be competing against other people with experience.

Windows 7 Users Warned Over Filename Security Risk

LogarithmicSpiral Extensions (613 comments)

In most explorer views isn't there a little thumbnail that shows an image of a type of file? Partyinvite.doc.exe would show a cmd window probably, instead of a blue W. Either way, you should be able to tell what type of file it is.
