Actually I dont know about a library, I got the idea and the core code for the effect from http://lamberta.github.io/html5-animation/

Yes you are right. The website is meant as a landing page for an event. But yeah, I should make the game mode more obvious and straight forward to get to.

I also got a 500 when trying to signup with facebook. When asked about posting I selected privacy as "Only Me". Maybe that had something to do with it.

Anyway I love the website and learning tracks.

git is a distributed system. Everyone else has a full copy of the repository. therefore everyone actually has a backup.

-----


Everyone else only has a full copy of the repository if they actually check out a copy and keep it local. That's apparently not how my coders do their workflow.

-----


The most usual way to work with git is to pull a local copy of the whole server using "git clone"[1]. The only way to do a partial copy would be to do a shallow copy locally with only the last few commits, but then it will probably be harder to merge back... So it seems you are either wrong, or that your team is using a very very exotic workflow.

[1] it is explicitly called clone and not checkout to underline the fact that you are actually replicating all the data of the server.

What?!?

Git forces you to check out a copy in order to be fully functional. Are you saying they're working without version control? Why?

You can use git for version control without a full repository copy -- you can git clone with limited depth, for instance.

Before TFS, we didn't even have everything in Visual Source Safe.

-----


Going by the rest of this thread, I wouldn't rule out the possibility that they are doing something insane like committing multi-gigabyte objects regularly, and then only checking out with a low clone depth.

I've seen people attempt that before; without fail people who are deeply in centralized version control land and do not bother to understand git before attempting to switch to it (because it is trendy, or because people under them won't stop complaining about using svn in 2014).

-----


If all your coders are editing files in one single directory all at the same time, well, that's pretty crazy. Not even CVS forces you to all work out of the same directory; it lets you check out your own local working copy and push changes to the server. Git is almost the same from the user's perspective, with the noted difference that you get an entire copy of the repo and not just one working copy of some of the files.

Brilliant stuff. I'm too attached to chrome to let it go completely but this is brilliant when quickly opening links from other apps. Nice stuff

-----


I see Link Bubble as an additional application rather than a complete replacement for your existing browser. Drive the Prius (Link Bubble) around the city during the week, take the truck (Chrome) out on Sundays.

Wrote a script which plays using a simple greedy approach. Chooses the current best option. Doesn't seem to get past 512 so far. It does however consistently get till 256. Just copy the code in the console and restart the game (space bar) to run.

Does anybody have a better approach? Other than randomize and trying your luck? Or maybe that is the best algorithm for this case..

Can you divulge what kinds of information is stored in it. Or the encoding it uses?

-----


I cant seem to get any legible data.

Actually the first few characters remained the same with page loads.

-----


CBC mode AES?

-----


More likely a header. It's 3081 byte blob after base64 decoding. If we consider it's encrypted with some block cipher with 128 or 256-bit blocks (IV and/or MAC would be likely to be 128-bit, too), there are 9 bytes for some header and/or padding.

-----


Good catch.

For the vim users the fugitive plugin by tpope provides a nice way to do this using vim's vimdiff. It is a delight to use.

Here is a video of vimcasts tutorial. http://vimcasts.org/episodes/fugitive-vim-working-with-the-g...
