    > Yeah it's actulaly 6 weeks that's the *treshold*. 6 weeks is still too short even for me, a radical...

  2. Zash

    That is the release cycle of Firefox iirc.

  3. ☭民兵

    Alright. Stop joking. Nobody will stop supporting because a web browser is not the latest version.

  4. Zash

    Firefox ESR user would disagree

  5. moparisthebest

    Maybe that's solution all along

  6. moparisthebest

    Make your software so buggy that no one can justify running a version older than a few weeks because it'll have 65 CVEs in it, then you can assume everyone is always on the latest, even people running Debian

    We need less secure XMPP clients and servers!

    > Web browser older than 2 weeks? Sorry can't run this website. Image format 15 years old? Sorry still not supported wtf?

  9. ☭民兵

    > Firefox ESR user would disagree Alright... Sure... Understandable... China now is not a socialist country, so it is not a obligation to teach people to use computer. Too many newbies, so some employed Chinese developers are forced to add support even for IE web browser...

    Poor conservatives.

    SVG will not be abandoned. It is not a real binary file.

  12. moparisthebest

    Technically all computer files are binary files

    Do you think it is possible for ternary computer to be invented?

  15. ☭民兵

    The project ignored by the corrupted latter Soviet Union.

  16. moparisthebest

    Already was a long time ago, yea the Soviet ones

    > Do you think it is possible for ternary computer to be invented? To be invented *again*, I mean. Possible?

  18. moparisthebest

    ☭民兵: I think this is the real reason no one wants to: > Ternary logic was implemented by combining two of these ferrite elements and wiring them in such a way that they could represent three stable states. This approach was successful but did nothing to reduce the number of elements required as, in reality, those two ferrite cores could potentially represent two binary bits, which represents more information (2^2) than one ternary "trit" (3^1).

    Nevermind maybe.

    > Yeah, PNG can't help but look ugly since it can't be safely rendered at any size but the one it was created with. So it's really a desperate last resort kind of format IMO. Unless it's a painting or photo and was raster to begin with of course singpolyma: not really. Designers actually don't want people to change our design or use it for something else once it leaves our hands. It is total nightmare if you change the size according to the frame. It's like the Lenovo tag/logo was print a little closer to the edge of the laptop. Or the adidas stripes has a different lean angle. There's no way to protect that that I am aware of other that rendering to png or jpeg. When it's vector png is fine. You can adjust the size without it going blur. Same thing with video rendering 444 to 420. People steal footage alot man. It's not right.

    > It is a common feature, even if you didn’t know it existed until now. :) Link Mauve: Yeah i use clone all the time. I dont know that it comes out as `<use>` tho. Like singpolyma said, noone ever write svg by hand.

  23. Link Mauve

    Trung, destroying data indeed prevents some people from making derivatives from your stuff, but I usually prefer to make my stuff free software so I don’t even want to prevent people from improving and reusing them.

  24. Link Mauve

    Note that vectorising bitmaps is also a thing, and you can’t prevent people from doing it if they can display your image.

  25. Trung

    food is not software 😊

  27. Trung

    not everything is software

    > Note that vectorising bitmaps is also a thing, and you can’t prevent people from doing it if they can display your image. of course not. all things are digital now. Aniway, i'm afraid that i'm going off topic for jdev so i'd call it here.
