Trying to watch 'AQUAMAN: THE LOST KINGDOM' on and it's already clear this one is not as good as the first one. Eh, at least I'm not paying for it. 😐

“‘I would absolutely not fly a Max airplane,’ said Ed Pierson, a former Boeing senior manager. ‘I’ve worked in the factory where they were built, and I saw the pressure employees were under to rush the planes out the door. I tried to get them to shut down before the first crash.’

‘I would tell my family to avoid the Max. I would tell everyone, really,’ said Joe Jacobsen, a former engineer at Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration.”

A rare gem.

PHP core devs when they write on the internals mailing list:

"We should cease defiling our beautiful language with compact() and extract() and variable variables! PHP is too great to permit such abominations!"

PHP core devs when they write code:

ZEND_MAP_PTR(ptr) \
ptr ## __ptr
ZEND_MAP_PTR_DEF(type, name) \
type * ZEND_MAP_PTR(name)

CHECK_RGBA_RANGE(component, name, argument_number) \
if (component < 0 || component > gd##) { \

TimStarling,
@TimStarling@wikis.world avatar

@Girgias Sure, to be fair, the ZEND_MAP_PTR macro is by Dmitry whose code tends to be brutally pragmatic, and I don't see him on the lists asking for rough edges to be filed down even if it would make his job easier. I can relate since I lean more towards the pragmatic end of that axis (elegance being the other end), although I wish he'd write a comment every once in a while.

@TimStarling Same Tim same.

Frankly, adding comments feels like the main thing I tell people to do when doing code reviews.

If it isn't a price increase, it's a plan decrease.

sethkinkaid,

anyone else enjoying 'Scavengers Reign' as much as i am? it feels like i've been waiting years for a show like this—like a fully animated weird/horror sci-fi in pure Moebius animation. it's beautiful so far!

Well, for something to be completely Moebius, maybe it would have to be Moebius. 🤷🏽‍♂️

The first three episodes of the long-awaited Scavengers Reign animated show are now available on Max. Reviews are good.

Don't complain that there's no original sci-fi if you don't watch this original sci-fi story whose art direction seems halfway between Moebius and Ghibli. 😊

daveturbitt,

@TheSpaceshipper I'll keep tabs on it for when it jumps to a service I subscribe to!

Shak,

@TheSpaceshipper Just watched 2 episodes. Really good. I love original stuff like this.

#^History of the Development of Max

History of the project, current Ruth2 and Roth2 avatars, testing models, managing artists and the community social media channels.

Further resources for the Max, Maxine and Maxwell mesh avatars is available at https://blog.inf.ed.ac.uk/atate/2023/09/13/max-new-open-source-mesh-avatar/

Timeline- 2017 – Shin Ingen creates original Ruth 2.0 and Roth 2.0 avatar meshes in ZBrush. https://github.com/ingen-lab/Ruth

Max, Maxine and Maxwell

The new underlying avatar created directly in Blender by Ada Radius is called “Max” which can be morphed into female and male variants called “Maxine” and “Maxwell”. The avatar armature is refined via research on the character folder in SecondLife/OpenSim viewers https://github.com/New-Media-Arts-New-Viewer-Avatar.

RuthAndRoth GitHub Organization

In 2019 Fred Beckhusen created the GitHub RuthAndRoth “organization” as a shared community umbrella to improve open source community management of the project. Ada Radius, Ai Austin and Serie Sumei continue to act administrators.

Github Organization: https://github.com/RuthandRoth

There are several code and resource repositories available:- Ruth – the original Ruth 2.0 RC#2 and RC#3 and Roth 2.0 RC#1 resources with Git archival branches for the releases.

  • Ruth2 – Female mesh avatar – Ruth2 v4.
  • Roth2 – male mesh avatar – Roth2 v2.
  • Extras – attachments and resources of interest for open source avatars.
  • Skins – open source skins.
  • Reference – archive of Second Life and OpenSimulator avatar-related reference files.
  • Max – repository for the new Max, Maxine and Maxwell avatars.

A simple management approach to code and resource contributions and preparation of releases is taken at present. There is a “Contrib/ which any creator may establish and into which they can commit their own contributions. Hence they can make them available to the community for testing and feedback.

Repository issues can be raised for discussion and a repository “Wiki” allows for useful documentation. Social media channels, in particular via Discord, are available to discuss developments, issues, testing, etc.

An OpenSim community region on OSGrid called “RuthAndRoth” is available to allow any user on any grid that implements the “Hypergrid” protocol to get in-world prepared resources and boxed releases. There is a Second Life marketplace also called “RuthAndRoth” for boxed release items. An avatar “RuthAndRoth Resident” exists in both OpenSim (on OSGrid) and Second Life to “own” the canonical version of each released item.
