My article on photorealistic light simulation with Radiance has been featured on #BlenderNation!
This thing is called a choko.
Or chayote if you're south american.
Supposedly I can plant it like this and it's a vine.
Excellent reading on compromises between #gopher and the modern #web. It describes the fundamental technological decisions that turned the web from a document retrieval system into a ad-riddled, surveillance-funded, weaponized client-side application platform.
If you're a web developer, test it on Lynx!
We've got big news.
After months of work, Tor Browser is now stable on Android.
Tor Browser 8.5 brings the highest degree of privacy and censorship-circumvention available to Android users. https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-tor-browser-85
AI and digital forgery presents a completely different world where trust has a whole new meaning.
This article presents two very compelling strategies to know the truth: greater adoption of crypto, and fighting AI with AI.
If you're reconstructing a mesh from a point cloud, there's generally only a few algorithms you can choose from. A few years ago, I discovered that using metaballs actually results in a good reconstruction too! Here's a short article describing the technique.
You can try it for yourself too with #blender - it works out of the box!
I've attached a picture of the Stanford bunny - left with metaballs, right with zipper. Notice the level of detail!
Having multiple grass species in your model repository is vital to creating realistic looking grassy fields. This grassy patch is special, because it's been defined using #radiance photometrically accurate material definitions.
It is clear that people in AEC are frustrated with interoperability, proprietary monopolies, closed data, and unnecessary rework.
We can change this.
My article above describes this technique which is not yet marketed in the #architecture industry. More honest design, less make believe.
@alcinnz I see people being attracted way less by *information* itself but actually by *interactivity* surrounding this. In my environment in example, writing weblogs or websites never "got off" the way Twitter or Facebook did, later - because in the days of weblogs or (semi-)static web sites, communication and interaction was somewhat clumsy and difficult and mostly limited to using web forms (slow) or e-mail (slow and considered way too "formal" for random exchange of thoughts).

So I've just created a new ebuild to install #Gophernicus on #Gentoo #Linux! It's available on the Gentoo bugtracker if anybody is interested in trying out their own gopher server. There is also sgopherd, which is very charming and lightweight too.
Go and create your own #Gopher server now!
Plants can also help filter the air in your home. In 1989, the NASA Clear Air Study examined several plants for their ability to remove airborne contaminants.
Among the most effective are ivy (Hedera helix), peace lily (Spathiphyllum sp.), snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata) and Chrysanthemum morifolium.
Possibly one of the best is bamboo palm (Chamaedorea seifrizii), which is also non-toxic to pets.

So it is possible, but very annoying to browse and be product on Github with elinks :) Gitlab is marginally better. The best, by far, is gitweb.
Speaking as someone who did full-stack web development ... web developers nowadays have forgotten the meaning of HTML and the HTTP request - response cycle.
