    Another absolutely incredible realtime demo from Still. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGvaovrwuL4 Probably the best sound-effect/visual match I’ve ever seen in a demoscene prod.

      @thomasbrand @33mhz Specifically, pictures of cat butts.

        @keita It’s like “— why are we even here?” Why?—wha… I think I’ll just go home now.
        cgiffard
          @thomasbrand That’s right, I faked all of it for the cameras.

            @thomasbrand It’s not really popular in Japan, but it has a loyal contingent of Japanese users.

              @thomasbrand It must be considerable. It honestly appears there’s at least forty million spam posts on the network. @matigo @ggirton

                @thomasbrand Not for me there isn’t! :P

                  @keita @chriskrycho I’m not even sure what a regular home internet user can *do* with 10Gb/s. They’d need to wire their PC with 10GigE.

                    @thomasbrand Perhaps in the English-speaking sphere, maybe. But I know of a bunch of Japanese users who probably wouldn’t be on here if it weren’t for free accounts.
                    cgiffard
                      @thomasbrand Perhaps a paid user can invite unlimited free ones, but a free user can only invite, say, three friends.

                        @rabryst I’d stick with x264 for now. :)
                        cgiffard
                          @rabryst Well, free via invite would’ve been cool. Nobody invites spammers, and spammers can’t just sign up for free accounts. @thomasbrand @johngordon @33mhz

                            @rabryst MPEG-4 is the container. Inside could be H.263, H.264, H.265, AVC, AVEC, VP9, etc, etc, etc — in all various bitrates and dimensions. :)

                              @thomasbrand @johngordon @33mhz In the back of my mind, free accounts were a mistake. Really, really cheap accounts might’ve been better.

                                @matigo What’s significant about that, other than being a nice number?
                                cgiffard
                                  @chriskrycho Nice! What technology is it?
                                  cgiffard
                                    Whenever the train announcement says “seven hills”, I can only hear “severed heads”. It really sounds like that — it can’t just be me.

                                      @phoneboy I will see that it is getting better down here. But the online offerings are still way behind those of the US. We just got Netflix (yay!) but it’s incredibly sparse (boo!) @matigo
