Subpixel layout - Lagom LCD test

Each pixel on an LCD screen consists of three subpixels: red, green, and blue (RGB), that are sitting next to each other. Most operating systems since about 2003 can improve the quality of on-screen text by using these subpixels. However, this only works if the operating system knows how the subpixels are arranged. For the majority of the monitors, the arrangement is RGB (red on the left, green in the middle, and blue on the right). However, on an occasional monitor, it is the other way around (BGR).

Observe the colored square below from close by, e.g. 20 cm or 8 inch. If you find that your screen is not RGB, you may want to verify that your operating system handles subpixel rendering correctly for your display. If you wear glasses, you need to pay attention that your glasses do not separate the colors. Below you can see text rendered with various smoothing techniques.

DIY USB password generator » Code and Life

As USB keyboards were an area untouched, I decided to make a small USB HID keyboard device that types a password stored in EEPROM every time it’s attached. A new password can be generated just by tabbing CAPS LOCK a few times (4 times to start password regeneration and one tab for each password character generated, 10 is the default password length).

Below you can see the device in action: Online Python Tutor. Write your Python code here: x = [1, 2, 3] y = [4, 5, 6] z = y y = x x = z x = [1, 2, 3] # a different [1, 2, 3] list!

Chroot-ing in Windows – As Easy as A:, B:, C:… « Just Let It Flow

While recent developments of Windows are slowly catching up with variously featured versions of whoami, ln (mklink) cat (copy con), grep (find), ps (tasklist, taskkill) and chmod (icacls), one app that’s so far evaded the conversion is chroot. For those unaware, chroot allows you to run an application using some specified directory as its filesystem root dir instead of the normal filesystem root. Whatever the reason may be for its absence, it is definitely not because there’s is no support mechanism for it. NtSetInformationProcess(hProcess, ProcessDeviceMap, &hObjectDirectory, sizeof(hObjectDirectory)); What’s a Device Map?

Ok, so it’s technically one function call, but there needs to be a bit of setup beforehand. The global device map with drive letters highlighted. Kern Type, the kerning game. All text symbols for Facebook ϡ (list) Pragmatic Unicode. Hi, I’m Ned Batchelder.

Pragmatic Unicode

I’ve been writing in Python for over ten years, which means at least a half-dozen times, I’ve made the same Unicode mistakes that everyone else has. Wrote a nice program It worked! Accented chars UnicodeError! If you’re like most Python programmers, you’ve done it too: you’ve built a nice application, and everything seemed to be going fine. You kind of knew what to do with those, so you added an encode or a decode where the error was raised, but the UnicodeError happened somewhere else. Then a few days later, another accent appeared in another place, and you had to play a little bit more whack-a-mole until the problem finally stopped. Linux keyboard: Unicode hex codes composition (text symbols)

You can use Unicode codes to enter any possible text symbols on Linux.

Linux keyboard: Unicode hex codes composition (text symbols)

Straight-forward from your keyboard. The only hard thing here is that you'll have to remember some hex codes of these symbols. But you'll read more on that below. Steps Hold down Ctrl+Shift+U. Unicode Character Finder. The best way to get familiar with the Unicode Character Finder is to play with it - type in the boxes, push the buttons and see where they lead you.

Unicode Character Finder

The paragraphs below describe the available features. The character preview area is intially blank. You can (1) click in the left-hand box; (2) type a character or copy & paste from another window; and (3) view the character properties on the right. The Code point number (eg: U+00E7) uniquely identifies the character in the Unicode code charts. The character Description comes from the Unicode character database. The HTML entity is one form you can use to represent the character in the source of an HTML page. Orange - Data Mining Fruitful & Fun.
