Alpha APX Details

I just want to share some links. This is the type of articles that makes me follow Raymond Chen. Initial Plunge Integer calculus Integer constants Bit 15. Ugh. Bit 15. Conditional operations and control flow Memory access, basics As he lives outside of the open source space, his blog might be a gem that many […]

Building communities

As some of you might know I’ve been involved in the foss-gbg group for a long while (more than 3 years now). Last year I helped starting the foss-north conference, which is really about taking what foss-gbg is and turning it into something bigger. We had a great turn-up – over 100 guests and ten […]

My line follows here: ffmpeg -i big_buck_bunny_720p_surround.avi -c:v libx264 -profile:v high -level 4.2 -crf 18 -maxrate 10M -bufsize 16M -pix_fmt yuv420p -vf “scale=iw*sar:ih, scale=’if(gt(iw,ih),min(1920,iw),-1)’:’if(gt(iw,ih),-1,min(1080,ih))'” -x264opts bframes=3:cabac=1 […]

June 21st 2012

When your wife has been in pain every 15 to 20 minutes for six days and six nights, you appreciate the sincerity when she asks you to take her to the hospital at four in the morning. After a short routine check, we where admitted. Five hours later, Erik, was born. The day after, we could leave […]
