Somehow when I was making a Spam emoji for Discord it became my desktop wallpaper.

This must be some form of punishment.

When my text rendering works it looks pretty decent. I haven't been able to figure out why it doesn't always work though, it's kinda random.

I'm using multiple threads to load resources and I'm calling glFinish at the end of every set of threaded GL calls. The texture is always correct when dumped from the GPU, but sometimes the font renders as if the texture was solid white.

OpenGL 3.3 Help Requested 

Time for an update on this.

Sometimes the font does render, just randomly. The texture that I dump from the GPU always contains the correct texture however.

OpenGL 3.3 Help Requested 

Anyone happen to know what would be causing this to happen?

- 1 channel texture with GL_RED
- glError comes back clean
- Other textures work
- GL_BLEND enabled with GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA

I need to figure out how to map the PC from a VM to a location in S and C files for debugging. The VM is loading a plain binary file generated from an ELF, so I do have access to all the symbols. The software is reading memory that doesn't exist and it really shouldn't be doing that.

Any ideas on how I could get the exact line from PC?

"Clear caches and restart" is the "turn it off and back on" of the IDE world isn't it?

Here is the cursed source code as a nice repo with a Makefile: github.com/gudenau/SourceAmalg

I encourage a lot of people to try and make cursed stuff like this, the more weird stuff like this the more broken Copilot will get.

So I just made a single source file that is valid , C++, and .

So today I learned that scallac parses multi line comments differently than javac 

The following source code is valid and valid

/* /* */
public class Test{
public static void main(String[] args){
System.out.println("Test");
}
}
// */ // \u000A\u002F\u002A
object Test{
def main(args: Array[String]) = {
println("Test")
}
}
// \u000A \u002A\u002F

Anyone happen to know if will support Android 11 any time soon?

Is it possible to have a container-like cloud VM? Would be cool to set something up that only uses the resources it needs from a provider.

Weather Question 

I want to create a basic weather system model in software, but I am not sure where to start with it. I would like to have some form of temperature offset based on time of day (no seasons), humidity, wind and some form of pressure systems. I would like for these systems to create and remove weather events like rain and snow.

Where would I start with something like this? I know next to nothing about how weather works.

Minecraft Mod Stuff 

So I am working on an interesting weather mod and I have a basic per-biome system basically working.

Would it be reasonable to extract all of the code and data segments from an ELF like file, throw them in a disassembler, make a build script that assembles them into a file with the original hash and call that the first part of a decomp project?

Data is one of the best Star Trek characters and you can't convince me otherwise.

Is it possible to write something like this in both C and S files?

# ifdef __32bit
// 32 bit stuff
# else
// 64 bit stuff
# endif

I am writing some low level code for a project that will target 32 and 64 bit ISAs. Would be great to only have one set of sources for this stuff.

Oh cool, since when did TWRP support the Pixel 4 XL?
