This is an excellent idea and great execution. Would love to see algorithmic color palates built in - I've used https://github.com/c0bra/color-scheme-js in the past and found it a pleasure to work with.

It's a shame they only uploaded it at 720p :(

And 60 fps.. that was almost painful to watch.

> painful to watch

How so?

Without any motion blur at all the jerkiness of panning in the video is tremendously apparent. If you're a gamer used to 60fps in this engine, this hurts the eyes in the same way listening to a symphony through laptop speakers hurts the ears.

Hey! If you're from where I think you are you should definitely make an appearance and a local meetup a friend (@joshgillies) and I run monthly called Web Developer 42°. We have a couple of locals talking about anything from database security to git flow to front end design tooling. Beer, soft drink and pizza provided - and it's free!

Knowing local people who love what you love can make a big difference. Whilst dev jobs are few and far between down here, they do crop up - usually in smaller consulting firms. All of the consulting firms down here generally have a presence at #wd42. And everyone that meets really cares about the sorts of things on the Joel test - so any potential employers you may meet here are on the same page.

We'll be putting out the speaker list next week but in the meantime hit up our website (http://web.dev42.co/) and maybe follow us on twitter. If you want an email reminder email me and I'll add you to the announcement list.

If you are from here, shoot me an email (in profile) and we can catch up for a #pubhack, #coffeehack or similar. I'm not a hirer - but I love to code and enjoy coding with others.

Edit: I thought you meant Hobart (as it is literally at the bottom end of Australia) but was mistaken. Either way if anyone is down here on the last Wednesday of any month come to #wd42 for a beer. We're friendly only some of us have 2 heads!

Well, Hoabrt is the bottom of Australia...the OP should fix up the original post!

According to torrentfreak it hasn't propagated for everyone yet. It looks like so the media are linking directly to the ip address.

- Play more frizz-bee, start bike riding again and go diving more

- Say "No" more often to working on other peoples babies

- Buy a house

- Actually release my (deployed) side projects to the world

Has copy/paste support dropped? I'd love to use my flame as my daily driver, but I use Lastpass (and rely on) which is rendered useless without copy/paste.

Either way this is super exciting!! Well done to the FFOS/Mozilla team!

-----


Love it. Be great to see this expanded to include walks (machu pichu etc) - only because that has more relevance for me though.

One question, why does the camera 'rock and roll' when previewing a route? Personally I'd prefer a smooth panning motion... (the rocking made me feel a little queezy...)

-----


+1 for this - also would love to be able to copy and paste an object that has been logged to console (this is only a problem if its a large object and its being 'abbreviated' inline within the console).

-----


This is the first time I've ever found a roadblock when looking at the inner workings of FF/Mozilla - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1054353

Even their etherpads/sprint sheets/team chat logs are public. Not necessarily saying the bug SHOULD be public, just thought it was intriguing. Makes me wonder what other - if any - bugs are private (excluding security ones of course).

I wish the subtitles were available via this api. That would be super useful for a project I'm working on right now. There are a few other subtitle services out there with APIs but so far all either have a broken sign up process or have not sent me my API key after requesting one.

-----


Yes I agree, if they ever do I'll update the gem.
