But, every now and then there are some seriously cool ones. This music video falls into the AWESOME category!  Thmbsup

Reminds me of this one, which was written when scientists said there were only 3 forms of matter:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zbgul1NpEA8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zbgul1NpEA8</a>

Then after scientists decided there was a 4th form of matter, they wrote this one:

The funkiness never ends. A current theory on why Jupiter has an electro-magnetic field is that at its core it has super-heated hydrogen that has collapsed into a metallic form with an ordered, crystalline structure, and that metal contributes to the EM field.

Metallic hydrogen. Is that light metal as opposed to heavy metal? Could Yngwie play that?

If you are in Melbourne (or Victoria), THIS is THE event of the year to come out for!

The Bitcoin Address with Andreas M. Antonopoulos

Monday, November 24, 2014
6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

1/41 Stewart Street, Richmond (edit map)

Join us for the highlight event of the year and hear from the brightest minds in the bitcoin community. It’s free, it’s open to the public and it’s catered.

CoinJar is proud to present The Bitcoin Address in Melbourne and Sydney in conjunction with partners College Cryptocurrency Network and Bitcoin Association of Australia. The event is a free, open-to-public bitcoin meetup featuring international speakers from the bitcoin community, including crypto expert Andreas M. Antonopoulos and entrepreneur Tatiana Moroz.

Whether you’re completely new to bitcoin or you’re a bit of a bitcoin enthusiast, this event will educate and inspire you about the currency of the future. Our speaker lineup is well-known by the bitcoin community worldwide, and they’ll give you valuable insights on using bitcoin for the everyday and the extraordinary.

“I’ve been looking forward to visiting Australia, as it has a vibrant and active bitcoin community. Australia’s high tech and entrepreneurial culture combined with its young population make it fertile ground for bitcoin.”
- Andreas M. Antonopoulos

"I have always dreamed of visiting Australia. It represents this raw adventurous spirit... I know that bitcoin has some really solid support and interest in the community, but I also know that just like in the states, there will be plenty of people who don't know about it yet! In between hiking, swimming, and checking out the sites, I hope to have many opportunities to share how bitcoin has improved so many lives around the wall and is a truly international phenomena."
- Tatiana Moroz

About the event
World-renowned crypto-currency expert Andreas M. Antonopoulos will cover current issues and emerging trends of bitcoin in his keynote address.

You’ll hear from Bitcoin law expert Pamela Morgan, who will discuss how bitcoin is being used globally in innovative ways. Entrepreneur and musician Tatiana Moroz joins our speaker lineup to share her experience of spreading the use of bitcoin amongst the artistic community.

We’re expecting a big crowd, with limited places, so invite your friends and RSVP now.

Andreas is a mind-blowing speaker. Off the hook. Crazy amazing.

There is NOTHING that will prevent me from going, short of death.

If you are thinking about it, you MUST RSVP NOW! The RSVP list is ballooning very quickly, and space will likely run out very quickly.

I've RSVP'd +1 for a friend, so if he can't go, I've got 1 space reserved for a DC'er if you couldn't RSVP in time.

Yeah... generally you can be pretty sloppy when checking for IP addresses though as they're unlikely to be reported badly, and few other strings will match improperly, e.g. version numbering with major, minor, revision, and build -- 10.23.34.987.

Here are some URLs for regex to actually do IP addresses properly:

http://www.shellhacks.com...sses-in-a-File-Using-Grep

http://www.mkyong.com/reg...-with-regular-expression/

http://stackoverflow.com/...-from-strings-using-regex

They're kind of ugly with a lot of pipes.

@4wd - Your regex there is elegant and terse. It's one of the things that I tend to avoid as I find it's simply easier to read when being a bit more verbose. I also try to avoid a lot of special matching characters as in general as a lot of the regex I use are in EditPlus, and it's not really the best there, so it encourages being verbose rather than elegant.

There are programs that can record audio from the sound card
It is my understanding this this can be extremely difficult, is dependent on vagaries of the sound card/driver, and may be close to impossible for many/most modern sound drivers.
It may have been easier with older versions of windows.
This may be your main obstacle.

Actually, it's not hard at all. You can simply grab the waveout (or similar) on most cards to get the audio.

What's difficult is the audio fingerprinting. It's not technically difficult as you only need to hook into the API for some service like Grace Note, but the business side of it is daunting as you're pretty much guaranteed that you'll lose money on it.

Now, if you can use something like Echoprint.me:

http://echoprint.me

Or MusicBrainz:

https://musicbrainz.org/doc/Fingerprinting

(A bit more out there as well.)

Then you can avoid the royalty costs of Grace Note.

However, you are then basing your software on something that you don't know if it will be around tomorrow, which often ends up badly. e.g. All the people who tried to use MS DRM for WMA, etc., and those that used the Google translate API, etc. etc. etc.

If you can run your own data server, then you're good, but you then run into server costs. Again... you're going to lose money on an application like that unless it has significant value elsewhere that people will pay for.

The best place to look is in audio software that does something else and also does audio fingerprinting an an ancillary function.

But as for writing up a small utility that did that, it's possible to do with some of the above open source, but the payoff is zero and it's a week or more of work, and a lot more if the entire solution runs locally instead of over the Internet. And, depending on how its released, the end user may need to sign up for developer accounts with service providers then go through the entire hassle of figuring out API keys.

And here's the analysis to help explain what's happening in there:

That helps.

This works, but you must specify that the search is multiline in order for the ^ and $ to operate properly:

^.+CtrlChan .+[^0-9]([1-9][0-9]{0,2}\.[1-9][0-9]{0,2}\.[1-9][0-9]{0,2}\.[1-9][0-9]{0,2}).+$

Here's the result in Expresso:

208  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Regexp help on: November 04, 2014, 07:40:04 PM
This is better:

^definedstring.+([1-9][0-9]{0,2}\.[1-9][0-9]{0,2}\.[1-9][0-9]{0,2}\.[1-9][0-9]{0,2}).+$

209  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Recommend some music videos to me! on: November 04, 2014, 07:31:34 PM
My daughter is going absolutely bonkers for PLANETS!!!!

At 2 she can list all the planets in the solar system in order, and is constantly wanting more and more.

So, we've downloaded a bunch of slide shows, montages, videos, and music videos about planets, the solar system, space, etc. etc.

Some drive me a bit nuts. (Some kids videos are from India, but the English is pretty mangled and sometimes painful to listen to.)

But, every now and then there are some seriously cool ones. This music video falls into the AWESOME category!  Thmbsup

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUZ2tfr1bsU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUZ2tfr1bsU</a>

It's just so really, very, extremely well done. The choruses are really just extremely cool, and the verses are brilliant.

Tell me if you end up bobbing your head. Wink
210  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Regexp help on: November 04, 2014, 07:23:46 PM
^definedstring.+([0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}).+$

Or perhaps:

^definedstring.+([0-9]+\.[0-9]+\.[0-9]+\.[0-9]+).+$

But, that should do it or at least give you enough to test & tweak. You'll have 1 capture group with the IP address.

Drat... I'm a few posts behind on the British English stuff, but hey, I'm sure you'll excuse me as I'm half pissed. tongue

To add into the vernacular there, I have a few Ozzie favourites. Root & cunt.

The Seoul Women's University cheer leading team is called the "Seoul Women's University Rooting Squad" or "SWURS".

Root in Ozzie English means "to f**k".

Root for your team? Oh... hell yeah! Grin GO SWURS GO!

Cunt is a common word in Ozzie English for "fellow" (or similar). e.g. He's a decent cunt. It doesn't have near the negative connotation that it does in American English.

From 1:50 to about 2:00 there is simply orders of magnitude beyond virtuoso. Stunning work. Nobody has ever approached that. Steve Vai is the only contender that I know of.

Robert Patrick? Great actor! Loved 'em since he was a terminator. He's been kicking ass ever since.

Now, put Patrick Jane's deviousness in a T1000, and... dystoptian HELL! Grin

Uh ... *one* copy of this super-top file? Why didn't they make like seven copies, stash two of them in secret locations buried in the dirt, upload another copy into the darknet in the cloud, and more?

That's just Hollywood having another wet dream on itself - imagining that files can only be moved, and never copied. It's in virtually every single TV show and film. Apparently the word "backup" doesn't exist in Hollywood.

Yeah... I know... It drives me nuts as well.

For the actual show, I've seen some, but it just seems rather bland so far. The entire premise seems stupid to me. But then again, "Person of Interest" started pretty lame and actually has turned out to be somewhat decent. PoI now addresses some actually interesting things, though the underlying premise is still pretty dystopian. Scorpion might pull itself out of the fire. We'll see.

Why I use TinyUpload? Because it's easy to upload there and needs no registration. Besides, I don't know how to upload on DonationCoder. Can someone direct me?

When you post, look beneath the text box for the "Attach: [Choose File]" button. You can add an attachment there. Next, check above the text box for the dropdown menu that has "Link Inline Image..". Use that and choose "inline noimage attachment".

I liked the Clark post better. But, they were quite similar in many ways.

One (partial) comment from the first by Clark:

http://www.popehat.com/20...-to-obit/#comment-1277710

Quote
It's a little more complicated than that. Gamergate started, not as a relationship spat, but as a competence matter. Zoe Quinn is no more a developer of video games than you or I. Last year, she, and two partners, made a text-based choose-your-own adventure on the subject of depression using free online tools from http://twinery.org/. No programming was involved whatsoever. (Think of a '90s web developer who just used FrontPage and couldn't code HTML, let alone js or Perl.)

Depression Quest's code was, needless to say, unoriginal, its theme decidedly uncommercial, its use of language trite (just read her description for grammatical errors). It was rejected by Steam, the Amazon Marketplace of downloadable video games, last December, and the subject of mockery in online forums. Quinn then began claiming rampant sexism was "holding her back."

The first 2 paragraphs of the comment are overly kind to the point of being obsequious regarding Depression Quest. The game is simply about the worst POS I've ever seen.

Has anyone actually tried to play it?

It's completely unplayable. It's mind-numbingly boring. It takes the 'un' in 'fun' and copies it to the front - 'unfun'. It will make you want to kill yourself rather than spend another second playing it. That it has received so much attention is just mind-boggling.

I can't imagine any kind of mockery of the game being anything less than kind given just how horrible it is.

That was really good. He absolutely blasts Google there.

It was interesting to see him outline how Schmidt has always been politically connected.

About the only thing he didn't say was that Schmidt (and the like) are part of the shadow government.
