The Bloody Beetroots : HARD Haunted Mansion : 10.30.10: "Close your eyes and imagine, if you will, the bastard son of the Misfits and Daft Punk. As gruesome as the act of conceptionmay appear, the union would generate the most grandiose of offspring. A formidable force, not unlike the Bloody Beetroots."

Welcome to the University of Victoria Whale Research Lab

Welcome to the University of Victoria Whale Research Lab

PECan is a Canadian N£2D/3D parabolic equation (PE) underwater sound propagation model
that was developed for matched-¯eld processing applications. It is based on standard square-root
operator and/or propagator approximations that lead to an alternating direction solution of the
3D problem. A 2D split-step Pad¶e approximation is employed for propagation in range. The 3D
azimuthal corrections are computed using either a split-step Fourier method or a Crank-Nicolson
¯nite-di®erence approximation. It features a heterogeneous formulation of the di®erential operators,
an o®set vertical grid, energy conservation, a choice of initial ¯eld including self-starter, and both
absorbing and nonlocal boundary conditions. Losses due to shear wave conversion in an elastic
bottom are handled in the context of a complex density approximation. In this paper, PECan
is described and validated against some standard benchmark solutions to underwater acoustics
problems. Subsequently, PECan is applied to several single-frequency test cases that were o®ered
for numerical consideration at the SWAM'99 Shallow Water Acoustic Modelling workshop

UVicDSpace: Content-aware visualizations of audio data in diverse contexts

UVicDSpace: Content-aware visualizations of audio data in diverse contexts: "The visualization of the high-dimensional feature landscapes that are encountered when analyzing audio data is a challenging problem and is the focus of much research in the field of Music Information Retrieval. Typical feature sets extracted from sound have anywhere from dozens to hundreds of dimensions and have complex interrelationships between data elements. In this work, we apply various modern techniques for the visualization of audio data to a number of diverse problem domains, including the bioacoustics of Orcinus Orca (killer whale) song, partially annotated chant traditions including Torah recitation and the the analysis of music collections and live DJ sets. We also develop a number of graphical user interfaces to allow users to interact with these visualizations. These interfaces include Flash-enabled web applications, desktop applications, and novel interfaces including the use of the Radiodrum, a three-dimension position sensing musical interface."

redwall_hp comments on Gawker/Gizmodo does not salt their passwords, uses DES for hash, and now 1.3 million passwords vulnerable

redwall_hp comments on Gawker/Gizmodo does not salt their passwords, uses DES for hash, and now 1.3 million passwords vulnerable: "Using MD5 hashes as an example, basically:
I hash the phrase 'KnightsOfTheRoundTable,' which translates to '2704a525ca6db579cbc5a18b153d0383.'
Since I have access to the database of username/password pairs, I can just run a MySQL SELECT command to find all records where the hashed password matches '2704a525ca6db579cbc5a18b153d0383.' Since I know what that hash means, I can log in to any of the user accounts that show up with that password.
Now if they used the usernames as a salt, they would hash your password like this: md5($yourUsername.$yourPassword). That means if your username was KingBob and your password was 'KnightsOfTheRoundTable,' the hash would be '60b99f51bcaf8c3afc0b064b451412f2' instead. This means every user who has 'KnightsOfTheRoundTable' as a password will have a different hash, as their username is tacked onto the front. This makes it much harder to brute-force passwords, since they have to start all over again for each user instead of trying it on every user at once.
Just think of all the people who have 'password' or '12345678' or 'hunter2' as their passwords. Those would be the first ones to try, yielding plenty of compromised accounts."

Best practices for API versioning? - Stack Overflow: "This is a good and a tricky question. The topic of URI design is at the same time the most prominent part of a REST API and, therefore, a potentially long-term commitment towards the users of that API."

You Must Learn JavaScript — Article — The Nerdary

You Must Learn JavaScript — Article — The Nerdary: "Frameworks are nice. They are helpful. If anyone scoffs at you for using a framework while you’re learning, don’t listen to them. You’re on the right path. I think jQuery educates more people about the importance of context in JavaScript than any book or reference doc. After you’ve selector’d your face off, dive deeper into the core."

Vocal Village

Each member of the virtual conference will be able to hear the other members of the conference as if they were located in different positions around a virtual conferencing table, even though might be located in different cities around the globe"

What programming language was Super Mario Bros. written in? - Game Development - Stack Exchange

What programming language was Super Mario Bros. written in? - Game Development - Stack Exchange: "Almost all NES games were hand-written in 6502 assembly, the same as used in the Commodore 64, the Apple ][e, etc. The very few which were written in C had a reputation for being terribly slow because the NES is only 2Mhz and has 2Kb of onboard RAM (with an 8Kb window for the cartridge to patch more in). Careful assembly designed to take full advantage of the NES's peculiar architecture was much more effective.

Stop and think about that... games like Super Mario Bros 3 and Kirby's Adventure ran on 2Mhz. Compare how rich they are to today's games which swallow gigahertz and hundreds of megabytes of RAM..."

Time To Diversify

Time To Diversify: "The web is going to win. There will always be desktop apps, phone apps, console games and various specific scenarios. Win in those area’s all you want, but never deny that the choices today for web development are nothing like the choices we had 5 years a go. You could still make the best ever web platform in the history of software but that fact is the chances of consolidation like we saw in the Win32 days isn’t going to happen again. The choice geni is out of its browser bottle."
