diddledancinemas project jpg images? http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Cinema_Package05:19
diddledanfair enough it's a newer standard than normal jpg in jpg2000, but it's a series of independant images rather than an mpeg-like stream05:19
diddledanI guess that's done so that individual frame corruption doesn't impact the video until the next keyframe05:20
diddledanin essence each frame is a keyframe05:20
diddledanwe've probably all seen a corruption in an mpeg stream cause artifacts for several seconds of movie05:21
diddledanthat's one of the issues of keyframe based compression though05:21
diddledan"let's throw out everything except changes between each frame - add-in some motion-dectecting for good measure"05:22

diddledanknightwi1e, certainly instagram is too06:48
knightwi1eso we are going to have a bunch of desperate, vain, a-social people who are going to have to go outside and play ? ? ? ?06:48

mappi have a twitter..but i tweet friends from betfair forum and thats it06:55
mappand i still dont get it how do people keep up with all the tweets and that06:56
zmoylan-1iyou don't keep up, you just keep an eye as it streams past06:58
=== zmoylan-1i is now known as zmoylan-pi
mapphang on06:59
mappbut then06:59
mappi might miss stuff from someone i follow|?06:59
zmoylan-pii have a list of friends that i keep separate and that is a slow list that i keep a closer eye on06:59
zmoylan-pitry something like tweetdeck where you can split groups up into multiple lists.  tech, personal, scifi, gaming etc. and you can quickly scrollback as far as you want07:00
mappbut what if i didnt look for a week07:01
mappi miss them all?07:01
mappso how do people on twitter reply to tweets so quicly and have 10000s of tweets?07:02
mappthey have to be sitting there waiting?07:02
mappjust seems rubbish to me07:02
zmoylan-piunless they mention you in which case you can set up email notifications07:02
zmoylan-pipeople use twitter in different ways. i use it to follow friends closely, gaming a little, tech a little, and a few other subjects a little.07:03
zmoylan-piseparating the wheat from the chaff07:03
zmoylan-piothers use it as stream of consciousness as to what's happening right now07:04
zmoylan-pimain problem is that twitter seems intent on changing something that works into something that is more profitable to them and less useful to users07:05
mappjust seems too much for me07:07
mappso much flowing around07:07
mappid miss it all unlss they directly tweet me?07:07
mapphow do people see things then if people dont mention them in te tweet..simply by checking?07:07
zmoylan-pithen follow fewer people07:08
mappbut some people follow 10000s of people and tweet 10000s of times?07:11
mappseems too time intensiv07:11

foobarryIn particular, we discovered that it was fixed on May 21, 2013 (between the releases of glibc-2.17 and glibc-2.18). Unfortunately, it was not recognized as a security threat; as a result, most stable and long-term-support distributions were left exposed (and still are): Debian 7 (wheezy), Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 & 7, CentOS 6 & 7, Ubuntu 12.04, for example.21:40
