  1. I mean this is how floaplane started, with a shoddy ffmpeg driver written in Node.JS that would fire off transcoding jobs after file uploads to a CMS. Eventually the CMS just sent items into a work queue and render nodes picked jobs off the queue to process them.
  2. So what Luke was talking about is likely BCrypt which is a very secure and awesome hashing function that uses the Blowfish cipher as part of the hashing process. Blowfish has a maximum key size of 448 bits (or 56 bytes), though in the bcrypt algorithm, it processes things with 18 x 32-bit subkeys (which comes out to 72 bytes total, so 71 bytes not including terminator at the end of the string). However if we take UTF-8 into consideration, any UTF-8 string that exceeds 72 bytes is truncated to 72 bytes, so some UTF-8 characters exceed that on their own. The real solution is to pre-hash password
  3. I misunderstood your comment and wrote a response then deleted it.
  4. Does your laptop have something like Realtek audio manager installed? There's usually a "microphone level" slider somewhere in that application that can be dragged to 1% fairly easily by accident. Also check your windows sound devices input levels.

  5. Tickets aren't finalized yet, even prices and ticket tiers haven't been worked out between LMG and Dreamhack. It probably won't be until February for ticket prices to be announced, keep tuning into WAN show for news and watch the LTX blog on the LTX website.
  6. I'm a third year in university and will be flying in from work in SF for LTX this summer. It'll be my first time there but I've been meaning to hang out with some LMG people since floatplane stuff started, just never managed to get up to Vancouver cause school...
  7. Elon is still CEO just no Chairman of the board. He doesn't get to direct the company as much but he gets to decide how to execute on the board's direction.
  8. Even in the Tesla case it's a very minor punishment with no admission of guilt on Musk or Tesla's side. Musk remains the CEO, he just loses some of the decision making powers he probably shouldn't have had in the first place. A slap on the wrist or even less than that. Equifax is worth like around $16 Billion, it also doesn't have any other serious competitors besides TransUnion and if the SEC did anything to seriously hurt Equifax, it would turn the credit market into a virtual monopoly.
  9. Yeah, Tesla is right behind GM in market cap, second largest US based and US owned auto manufacturer.
  10. The funniest part was if he had set the price to $419 they probably would have let him off the hook. The markup of 20% from TSLA's closing price the day before he tweeted (which he said was his reason for the pricing tweet) would have been $419 by the SEC's calculations but he bumped it to 420 for the meme.
  11. Source: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-09-29/elon-musk-and-sec-reach-settlement-on-fraud-charges Main Content: My take: I think Tesla as a company will be fine and Elon will get some well needed rest from the crazy stuff he's been doing. He'll still have SpaceX and Boring Company so he won't get bored but I'm glad the SEC is taking steps to ensure the second largest car manufacturer in the US is under stable guidance and isn't crossing legal boundaries for memes... I'm getting ready to buy some TSLA when it is on sale on Monday, but t
  12. Sure, you can make anything with a sewing machine and time but for me to do that it'd take like 10+ hours cause I have no idea how to sew and $100 is worth less than 10 hours of my time plus the end result is great and the cost supports LMG. They don't get all the money from it, G8 brand is the company that makes the hoodies and they set the prices.
  13. The WAN show hoodie is not your average hoodie, It's got a ton of hidden pockets and routing for cables, built in gloves, thumb holes in the sleeves, all sorts of cool stuff. The wan logo is just a added bonus
