    Telegram is, as far as I know, just another closed silo. Matrix ( the network for which Riot is a client) is a federated protocol (like email) that does not rely on a single server and it can be bridged to other protocols as well (e.g. IRC or Slack).

  • Posted by Christof (193.170.190.x) on October 16 2019, 8:41pm in 4855:
    Ha! Looks like OSX doesn't support unnamed semaphores, but apparantly you can achieve the same thing with GCD's dispatch_semaphore_t. Anyway, I'll try to implement it and benchmark against the socket implementation (but not before December). Actually, I thought 32-bit plugins are mainly a Windows thing, but then I got some feature requests from macOS users who still use 32-bit plugins (and they won't upgrade to Catalina :-D)

  • Posted by Justin on October 16 2019, 7:45pm in 4855:
    Heh if you want to convert it and see if shm/semaphore is faster, be my guest ;) What about on macOS?

  • Posted by Christof (193.170.190.x) on October 16 2019, 5:44pm in 4855:
    I see! I did some quick searching and it looks like you can use a pthreads semaphore across processes, see stackoverflow.com/questions/143642...or man7.org/linux/man-pages/man3/sem_...

  • Posted by Justin on October 16 2019, 5:08pm in 4855:
    Ah yeah, because you ended up having to use a socket in order to synchronize (the equivalent of a named event which is used on Windows), so might as well shove the data through there anyway, which works well.

  • Posted by Christof (193.170.190.x) on October 16 2019, 5:05pm in 4855:
    No worries! Now that I had a look a the sources, the non-Windows version of the shared memory interface uses sockets instead of actual shared memory (via shm_open), is there a specific reason for this?

  • Posted by Justin on October 16 2019, 3:42pm in 4855:
    Sorry it's so poorly documented...

  • Posted by Christof (193.170.190.x) on October 16 2019, 2:52pm in 4855:

    It looks like a real pain, if they do this a necessary step - it will be a disaster for apple, many small app developers may not want to deal with it, especially those, who's main platform is Windows or Linux and if they don't really care about Mac. I have found few tools(fastlane, electron-notarize) on github, which can streamline notarization process a bit, maybe they will figure out how to do this without actual xcode app in future.

  • Posted by DoubleD (79.140.127.x) on October 11 2019, 9:57am in 4816:
    you can use xcode 10.1 on 10.13 to go through the process - it's still a clusterfuckshitfest though, I agree. Thanks for everything you have ever made.

    yes- as a user it all seems to 'work' nice... you may be able to join some dots here.. to make a very pretty picture... tech moves >>forward eh.?

  • Posted by Justin on September 30 2019, 4:19pm in 4834:
    Even 64 bytes is pretty small and fast, if you manage your allocations right. If you have 1000 tracks that's 64kb, which is TINY. :)

  • Posted by Pony (94.230.200.x) on September 30 2019, 3:33pm in 4834:
    For some reason i thought it's 64 bytes, just checked right now and it's 16, stupid me. I'll do as You say. I realize i need to redo thousands of code, haha... oh,no...

  • Posted by Justin on September 30 2019, 3:02pm in 4834:
    Copying the value is copying 16 bytes of memory, which is basically free.

  • Posted by Justin on September 30 2019, 3:00pm in 4835:
    Don't save the pointer, save a copy of the GUID. The lifetime that that pointer is valid is limited.

  • Posted by Pony (78.152.169.x) on September 30 2019, 2:51pm in 4834:
    Then it's probably will be slow, if i need to save/remove/process a lot of manipulations with tracks. But if it's the only option, ok ,thanks.

  • Posted by Pony (78.152.169.x) on September 30 2019, 2:41pm in 4835:
    GUID* track_guid = GetTrackGUID(GetTrack(0,1)); then after deleting track somewhere in a code in some situations: tempstr[64]{}; guidToString(track_guid, tempstr); crashes it, not sure what else can be done here. So i think i'll go with that option. Thanks.

  • Posted by fladd (92.110.122.x) on September 28 2019, 6:46pm in 4830:

    *wiki* Furthermore, the clause only permits protection of the writings of authors and the discoveries of inventors. Hence, writings may only be protected to the extent that they are original,[4] and "inventions" must be truly inventive and not merely obvious improvements on existing knowledge.[5] The term "writings of authors" appears to exclude non-human authorship such as painting by chimpanzees and computer code written by programmed computers,[6] but the issue has not been tested in litigation."test it?

    @White Tie, what do you mean by "adult entertainment industry"? Video content? If so, what is the company you work with?

  • Posted by White Tie (86.173.14.x) on August 3 2019, 11:22pm in 4756:
    I am the last actively working wakka-wakka guitarist in the adult entertainment industry.

    @fixerdave, I would advise you to use Telegram for this purpose. It has an unlimited cloud, but one file's size is limited to 2GB.

    Would Reaper be able to feature that at all? I mean, if I'd attempt it, could it be done at all, like as an extension to JSFX or something(though JSFX doesn't seem to have extension-support)?

    In Python, what do you think about the whitespace indentation to delimit code blocks?

  • Posted by Abhi (103.194.225.x) on August 2 2019, 5:48am in 4744:
    Oh yes, exactly. You are correct. I wonder how will be the REAPER 6 icon :D

    (pre & post meaning before and after each band)

  • Posted by daxliniere (51.52.72.x) on August 1 2019, 3:21pm in 4743:
    It would be really useful to me to have per-band pre&post HPF & LPF (4 faders). Sometimes there are sounds you don't want to allow into a PS band and sometimes a PS band produces things you want to filter out. I'd love to work out how to add these filters myself. (Obviously not commercially as the plugin wouldn't run outside of REAPER anyway, of course.)

    lol. Isn't it a scyth (also called a "reaper", and used by the Grim Reaper) inside a guitar pick?

    That's cool. In my case, there's no one thing that stands out. Coding is more like bread-and-butter, that's what I meant to highlight. ;-)

    But Slack is also a closed silo. Matrix is federated and can seamingly be bridged with other networks (e.g. Slack or IRC).

    That is a good answer, well considered.

    Bing is a much better search for pr0n, tho.

    ...especially now at v4.0 when they FINALLY optimized it RAM-wise and it also opens much faster than before... Took them a while.

    The first mp3 decoder and player was made by Fraunhofer, who made mp3. Tomislav Uzelac made amp, which was an open source mp3 decoder library. It was not the first (or second for that matter) decoder, though it was probably the highest-performing open source decoder of its day.

  • Posted by zabukowski (93.143.20.x) on July 26 2019, 9:01am in 4735:
    What was the role of Tomislav Uzelac in the history of mac/win amp?? Was he really the one who made the 1st MP3 player on the planet?

    Your answer is here :) askjf.com/index.php?q=56s

    Yeah, I sort of figured this ... if the data wasn't transferred properly, then there's probably not much we can do...

    Thanks! I sent you, but today I found something weird. I copied those old REAPER projects as well as some other projects of other softwares from my PC to laptop, years ago. And today I checked them, and found that ALL THOSE projects got corrupted. Not only REAPER showing that error, but other softwares are showing too. I guess, there was an issue in transferring file. Still, if you can solve the problem, it would be helpful.

    Impossible to answer without more context, sorry! You can try profiling...

    i'm aware of optimizations, problem is not in them, but in my poor code, i will compare function by function, when i won't be that lazy from time to time and will see what i can improve. Code itself is pretty big (~20k lines) so i don't want waste your time, it's too much of honour for only me. Just wanted to ask for a tip for one or two funcs, that potentially could be hungry in swell/lice atleast, maybe i could go around of them somehow, if i used'em..

  • Posted by zabukowski (89.142.60.x) on July 18 2019, 7:24am in 4725:
    Yes, i am thinking in the same way ... but on the other hand, i was hoping to work on a new machine for a long time. For example, i still use my trustworthy MBP 2010 :) ARM transition will most likely make my new machine kind of "outdated" at some point, and that is not really "far", i guess - few years ??

  • Posted by David (74.14.60.x) on July 18 2019, 4:09am in 4724:
    Thanks for the tip, I managed to get the old JS effects by installing a 4.x version installer.
