Single Ladies versus Duck Tales works beautifully

There’s not much to say about this other than you have to watch it because, ignoring Beyonce’s lips, it works near perfectly. Thank you internet for bringing two apparently unrelated things together perfectly. So here it is, Single Ladies featuring Duck Tales.

Kickstarted 80’s epic short movie Kung Fury Has Arrived!

What can only be described as “the 80’s in a movie” is finally here, the epic named Kung Fury. Described as “a homage and a love letter to the 80’s from the director David Sandberg”, this fill was a Kickstarter that was bound to succeed. Paying tribute to everything that was crazy and awesome in the 80’s this movie features: arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury. There is very little to be said about it, it’s silly, nostalgic and most importantly, totally free. GO WATCH IT!

50 year 1-trillion fold increase in computing – keep on going!

  In 1954, IBM released the IBM 704 – the “supercomputer” of its time. Since then computer power has stuck relatively close to Moore’s Law and we now have a 1-trillion fold increase in the computing power available to us (or at least to people with access to modern day super computers, the rest of us are close, but not quite there). Something people often don’t think about is the relative tech changes as a fraction of human existence: we spent 3 million years to get to an era where we had an industrial revolution then decades later a PC, then decades … Continue reading

Nvidia Geforce GTX 980 Ti – possible details and performance leaked

  It appears that Nvidia might launch the Geforce GTX 980 Ti even earlier as expected as we are now hearing plenty of new rumors regarding it, including most of the specifications.According to a fresh report coming from the Korean HWBattle website, spotted by Techpowerup.com, and despite earlier report, Nvidia Geforce GTX 980 Ti will feature less CUDA cores than the Geforce GTX Titan X. Based on the GM200-310 GPU, as suggested earlier, the Geforce GTX 980 Ti will feature 20 out of 24 SMM (Streaming Multiprocessor Maxwell) units, which adds up to 2816 CUDA cores. It will also come … Continue reading

Does Windows screw up your monitor resolution when your monitor sleeps (notably when a game is open?)

Have you ever been playing a game and gone away from your PC only to come back and find your monitor switched off? No problem right? Just move your mouse and it’s all back to norm….oh what on earth is this the game is now running at a weird smaller than desktop resolution! If you’ve had this issue, you’ll know what I’m talking about, particularly MMO players where the game GUI resizes based on the monitor resolution and so tends to screw up if it changes while the game is up and the game didn’t request the resolution change. It turns … Continue reading

Heterogeneous Parallel Programming – Completed and Certified!

I just got my certificate through from Coursera for completing the Heterogeneous Parallel Programming by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Coursera and I’m very happy! It was a fun (and free) course that covered primarily CUDA programming but towards the end went on to OpenCL. Fun course to do and really helped me rethink parallel computing. The principles taught in the course can be applied quite easily to multithreaded programming.   This was one of the things that started me down the route of my libraries on GitHub – parallelisation, logging, etc. It’s a course I would recommend to anyone interested … Continue reading
