I updated to OS X 10.10 after a day it was released – only to be stunned by the really, really ugly looking UI. @francispereira dubs this new update as “Polio infected”. There’s transparency where it should never have been in the first place, and the font smoothing engine is gone haywire with the new […]

The folks at Uncyclopedia have made my Uncyclopedia Android app as their official app! Get it now!
Context: You have a URI to a resource which is placed in the raw directory inside the Android resources directory, res. Say you want to take that raw resource(let’s say it’s an image) and add it to an attachment using FIleBody to a MultiPartEntity. Both these classes are available in the Apache HTTP Components library. FileBody […]
I’ve decided to open source the Uncyclopedia app for Android, which some of you may remember was available on the Play store during the first quarter this year. Browse the code on GitHub. The source code is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.
After performing transformations such as rotation of a bitmap about an arbitrary point, the scale is lost. Of course, this makes sense because the bitmap is rotated inside the same bounds. To get the real scale now, along with the most reliable degree of rotation, I had to follow this method. Hope it saves the […]
Here’s a quick and easy implementation of Android’s multi touch feature – one finger to move, two to zoom, and three to rotate the image. Assuming you have a basic understanding of 2D matrix transformations, the Matrix class in Android uses a 3×3 matrix to achieve all of the 2D transformations. The source code and […]
Notes on setting up Turbo C/C++ within DosBox 0.74, compiled from source: Install DosBox from source This is the dosbox_shared directory containing Turbo C/C++ This config file is tested and works, modify the last three commands, to set the correct path to where you’ve extracted the dosbox_shared.tar.bz2 Place the config file in /home/username/.dosbox/dosbox-0.74.conf
The smart-phones these days are power hungry devices, and often drain the battery within six to eight hours, or even less. However, if it’s running Android, there’s a good chance that that can change. The key is to find the right set of tools, and optimize your phone to be right on the edge, there […]
Update: The catalyst spec files are available here: https://github.com/judepereira/gentoo-development/tree/master/x86/uclibc/catalyst Following this Gentoo bug: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=441976 We have official experimental uClibC for x86 and amd64 stages. I will not be maintaining these unofficial ones any longer. The link to the official archives is: http://mirrors.rit.edu/gentoo/experimental/x86/uclibc/ and http://mirrors.rit.edu/gentoo/experimental/amd64/uclibc/ The uclibc experimental stages on the gentoo mirrors are all outdated(they […]
I was initially stumbled on creating the shadow compatible SHA-512 hash. After a little research, the answer was obvious: require ‘digest/sha2′ password = “pass@123″ salt = rand(36**8).to_s(36) shadow_hash = password.crypt(“$6$” + salt) And you now have a password hash which you can directly use in /etc/shadow
