A blockchain crypto-art rose titled "Forever Rose" has been sold to a collective of investors for cryptocurrencies with a value equivalent to $1,000,000 USD. The collective is composed of 10 investors, each of whom contributed an equal amount toward the digital rose. The artwork is based on Kevin Abosch's photograph of a rose and was created by Abosch and GIFTO, a decentralized universal gifting protocol.
Blockchain technology is behind cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and rights management platforms like KODAKOne. The tech can also be used for art, as demonstrated by Abosch with "Forever Rose." Abosch previously sold an image of a potato titled "Potato #345" in 2016 for more than $1 million.
More than 150 buyers expressed interest in the Forever Rose, according to a press release detailing the sale. Ten collectors were ultimately chosen using a ballot—the buyers include ORCA Fund, Chinese crypto-investor Ms. Meng Zu, blockchain advisory firm TLDR Capital, and others. Payments were made in IAMA and GTO-by-GIFTO cryptocurrencies, with each buyer paying the crypto-equivalent of $100,000 to get 1/10 of the ROSE, an ERC20 token on the Ethereum blockchain.
Forever Rose is believed to currently be the most valuable virtual artwork in the world. The buyers can choose to hold onto their rose tokens, sell them, or give them away. Abosch and GIFTO will donate the sale proceeds to The CoderDojo Foundation, which provides kids around the world with the opportunity to learn coding skills for free.
I am of the feeling that there is some "harm" done every time we make a new section, in terms of fractionating the community. So my preference is always to avoid creating new forum sections.-mouser (February 20, 2018, 12:31 AM)
Is there a compromise whereby all that info could be stored in a central place rather than scattered across multiple random threads?-Target (February 20, 2018, 02:13 AM)
And uses an outdated (missing security fixes) version of Chromium... Why on earth should somebody use such stuff?-highend01 (February 19, 2018, 07:15 AM)
How did you find out it was using an outdated version of Chromium? Did you download it and try it? I don't see anywhere that it uses Chromium, so I'm curious.-wraith808 (February 19, 2018, 03:11 PM)
Note: Min uses an older version of Chromium, which may be missing security fixes from later versions. More Informationthe 'more info is interesting (though mostly over my head)
So did Inpaint 6.1 You have to look at that corner actual size to see that.without enlarging it, it looks to me like it's doing a repeating pattern thing there -- so cropping for the best-Arizona Hot (February 19, 2018, 12:31 PM)
face recognition name tagshttps://www.organize...bout-picasa-metadata
Face recognition name tags are the new kid on the block in terms of metadata standards. Being new, face recognition name tags do not have a place in the old IPTC standard but it does have a proper place in XMP.
Picasa saves face recognition name tags in the correct place again. How awesome is that!
Picasa saves face recognition name tags in the correct place in the XMP image header.
A simple conclusion about Picasa image metadata
Picasa is right on with the most important pieces of image metadata. Picasa saves them all in the right place. Granted, Picasa provides an interface only for a limited set of image metadata elements, but it saves them in the right place.

Microsoft is planning a new “S Mode” for Windows 10 Home, Enterprise, and Pro.
This S Mode will essentially lock down any copy of Windows 10 so it can only run apps from the Microsoft Store, and does exactly what the dedicated Windows 10 S operating system was built to do. Thurrott reports that 60 percent of Windows 10 S users have remained on the operating system, instead of switching to Windows 10 Pro free of charge. 60 percent of those who do switch reportedly do so within the first 24 hours of owning a Windows 10 S device, and if they don’t switch in a week then 83 percent stick with 10 S.
"Windows 10 Home will get the new S Mode"
While it’s surprising that Windows users are happy sticking to just Microsoft Store apps, it’s clear the company’s new strategy will mean even more users could receive devices with S Mode enabled. Microsoft is reportedly planning to allow Windows 10 Home users to disable the S Mode free of charge, but Windows 10 Pro customers with S Mode enabled on their device will be forced to pay $49 to get access to a full version of Windows 10 Pro.
It’s a risky strategy that will need to be explained clearly from both Microsoft and its various PC partners to avoid consumer confusion. While the Home versions appear to have a free switch path, the charge for the Pro versions could irritate consumers who opt for more premium devices. It all depends whether OEMs ship devices with S Mode enabled.
The main software itself is not actually currently translatable, although I can have that resolved very easily (and intend to) - I'm focusing on it in a simple basis for now, and will expand to that when polishinggood to know it *can/could* be done-Stephen66515 (February 03, 2018, 11:27 AM)
