On this day in 1987 Steve Wilhite while working at CompuServe developed the GIF format. Thanks to the internet and the fact that internet speeds continue to accelerate they have become the defacto animation format. Hooray! It is importent to point out that although the GIF is 30 years old today, the animated version that we are so familiar with did not become available until 1989. Don’t tell me how to pronounce it. Enjoy my collection.
The interoperable file system that is nearly impossible to interoperate. Introduced in 2006 by Microsoft, it eventually gained compatibility from XP to Windows 10. Apple introduced support in 10.6.5. Even Linux got to play thanks to Fuse. It turns out that any reasonable sized drive prepared in windows will not be compatible with Mac and unable to mount. This is because Apple’s implementation of exFAT requires less then 1048576 bytes per cluster, where as Windows varies it’s cluster size depending on the capacity of the volume. Best advise for mac people is to format it on windows, but set the block size to 1024. Can we get a new file system now please?
This post should prove it. Thanks to @joedolson for graciously not being offended when i suggested it was a problem with his code. My own idiocy omitted an essential file. whoops! must test more throughly before I bother others.
I just assumed that the problem was related to my recent SSL renewal. Turns out, Google security recently published Distrusting WoSign and StartCom Certificates and removed them from chrome. How did I miss this? It turns out that the SSL on my site has been broken on Chrome for some time. It must be that I have been using Brave recently as my daily browser. I moved this site to letsencrypt.org and it’s working fine for everyone now. I don’t even know how much time I waisted on this one. wow.
Please excuse all the errors while i try and figure out what I did wrong. Brave, Firefox, and Safari users unaffected.
Happy 3-14! I made the above image with Pixar Typestry in the 90s. (that’s history man!) Celebrate this momentous day by using circles and/or curves in your daily life.
I was very excited to discover this feature listed in my Unifi controller today. You can now repurpose the VOIP port to act as a WAN2. The ironic part is that i don’t believe the VOIP port serves any actual VOIP function as of yet. I’ve been recommending these USG routers since I learned of their existence. Unfortunately a lot of my clients want dual WAN and until now, the Unifi Security Gateway fell short. No longer, Ubiquiti has a really great product line with the Unifi. I am continuously discovering great new innovation with the latest update to their software, firmware, or cloud platform. I have been waiting for this!
