Anyone come across good to render pictures in ANSI/ASCII art? Or is that basically not possible?
You mean, take a picture and render it as ASCII art? libaa or libcaca (for color) can do this. A bunch of media tools can even stream video through them: mplayer can, vlc likely as well..
Thanks. I actually found a newer app called timg that appears to be more reliable and have broader support for terminals and file redirection than caca or catimg.
Something about the way GraphicsMagick libraries are packaged on Fedora made it tricky to get working.
This topic is right up my alley but looking at the ToC it seems kind of basic.
I remember feeling like this was a problem even 20 years ago. I remember trying BeOS around 2000 and feeling like I got my PC back. The problem is much worse now though. I could be sitting on a 3.0Ghz i7 with a fast internet connection and some web apps are just crawling.
It’s a great idea but it can be frustrating if you have dependencies on the Windows Store.
I’d say if you can’t run LTSC, and you must use Windows 10, then you should be aware that Enterprise is much less frustrating than Professional. I don’t know what the licensing and pricing hassles might be with it, though.
Or Education. This is basically enterprise for students, free.
A better reason to use diploma mills. Maybe…
It’s actually possible to get the Windows Store on LTSC. I needed it for something, so I have it on my desktop running LTSC 17763.
How hard was that to do? Is there a list of steps somewhere? I gave up after realizing that’s what the problem was thinking Microsoft would actively try to prevent people from doing that.
Look up “LTSC Add Microsoft Store” or something along those lines.
Picking a flavor of Windows that doesn’t have access to sandboxed apps from the Microsoft Store, all in the name of dealing with less bloat, strikes me as a weird choice.
The hardware description language Chisel uses Scala to capture electronic circuit designs, kind of like Verilog and VHDL. It seems to have gotten a fair amount of academic adoption but it also has received some industry push back. Chisel’s success also seems to be in spite of Scala, not because of it. From what I can tell Chisel has spread largely because of RISC-V growth. Some popular RISC-V cores are implemented in Chisel.
Nice. A football (soccer) version would be cool too…
Anyone running Linux on the latest and greatest hardware AND wanting an advanced feature set is likely going to encounter at least some administrative overhead. Your typical Linux distro is a good system but it typically doesn’t have the engineering support for particular platform like macOS or Chrome OS.
