The Moody Blues - #Days #of #Future #Passed #Full #Album #1967 (HD)
 
Some #complete #brainfuck ... a #fscking #fnord..... #something which is that much #off #this #world .. it somewhat #hurts that it #makes #sense on this very #planet in this fscking #civilization.

I'm a german, living in northern germany. My #landlord is a #friend of mine and #occasionally he #helps me out to get to the nearest #public #transport or back from there #home.....

Since last year, he took his mercedes C class in for a brand new Mercedes Benz B200d.....

It's a nice car ... a bit smaller than his previous one .. but he and his #dog (a huge rhodesian ridgeback) easily fit in there .. even when he takes me or some other neighbor for a #ride...

But today again, i #stumbled upon #something #new, which #ever #again #irritates me.

You see .... when you start to drive this #mercedes .... and when you reach something between 10 and 20 km/h (6 to 12 miles per hour), it locks all doors.......

It's mkay ... I dunno why ..... but well, it has this central locking stuff and we're driving fast enough that it makes sense to not be able to open the door by accident.....

Because well ..... whenever we #stop .. anyone is able to #open #the #door #from #the #inside whenever he or she wants...

#Fine...

#BUT... Today again we met somewhere on a parking lot near a supermarket .. as usual....

He told me, he wanted to drive straight back home instead of going to shop some few items while we're already there...

So i walk around the car, to the passenger side back seat door and grab for the handle to open it and throw my backpack in there...

#And #i #can't .... because, for sure, as i told, #the #car #has #locked #itself after reaching a decent speed on a ride........

#Yeah......

#WELL, i get it! It #makes total #sense to me, #imagining myself being in some #strange and #probably #dangerous #neighborhoods, #slums or #favelas....

#FOR #sure .. i can #imagine how #important such a #little #change #of #behavior #can #be.

But i cannot help that it feels strange to me......

And probably will for a very long time..........

Just imagining(!), #how #it #must #feel #to #be, #to #live, #without #any #real #security #at #all..........................................
 

Understanding millions of gates


Introduction to IC reverse engineering for non-chip-reverse-engineers.
#Reverse #Engineering of #integrated #circuits is often seen as something only companies can do, as the #equipment to image the #chip is #expensive, and the HR costs to hire enough reverse #engineers to then #understand the chip even more so. This talk gives a #short #introduction on the #motivation #behind #understanding your own or someone else’s chip (as a chip manufacturing company), and why it might be important for the rest of us (not a chip manufacturing company). The #focus is on #understanding what #millions #of #logical #gates #represent, rather than the physical aspect (delayering, imaging, image processing…), because everyone can do this at home. I will introduce some #proposed #countermeasures (like logic encryption) and #explain if, how and why they fail.

The #talk will give a #general #overview of the #research #field and #explain #why #companies #are #interested #in #reverse #engineering #ICs (IP overproduction, Counterfeits, Hardware Trojans), as well as why it’s important for an end user (IC trust, chip failure). Then, I will very shortly introduce the #reverse #engineering #workflow, from #decapsulating, #delayering, #imaging, #stitching, #image #processing and then come to the focus: #netlist #abstraction. The idea is to show some #methods which are #currently #used #in #research to #understand #what #netlists #represent. Some #theory will be #explained (#circuit #design, #formal #verification of #circuits, #graph #theory…), but I want to keep this to a #minimum. Finally, I will show some #current #ideas on #how #to #make #reverse #engineering #difficult, as well as #some #attacks on these ideas. The talk does not give insights into how large companies do reverse engineering (i.e. #throw #money #at #the #problem), but rather #show #the #research #side #of #things, with some of the methods published in the last couple of years, which is #something #everyone can do at home.

The Document Foundation soutient la Fondation Gnome contre un chasseur de brevets


Bild/Foto
La Fondation Document est toujours opposée à l'utilisation des brevets pour freiner le développement et l'utilisation des Logiciels Libres. La Fondation GNOME, un membre de notre Conseil consultatif, est maintenant la cible du chasseur de brevets (NDT : «patent troll») Rothschild Patent Imaging LLC, pour la maintenance et la diffusion du logiciel Shotwell, un gestionnaire de photos personnel, Open Source et gratuit développé pour l'environnement de bureau GNOME.

La Fondation GNOME a refusé de se soumettre et a déposé trois documents auprès du tribunal : une requête en irrecevabilité de l'affaire, une réponse à la demande, et une demande reconventionnelle contre le troll, dans le but d'invalider son brevet. Nous soutenons pleinement la décision de la Fondation GNOME de lutter contre le chasseur de brevets pour qu'aucun autre utilisateur ou développeur ne se trouve en danger d'être poursuivi par cette organisation et d'autres organisations similaires.

Vous pouvez lire ici le billet du blog de la Fondation GNOME résumant la situation : https://www.gnome.org/news/2019/10/gnome-files-defense-against-patent-troll/
The Document Foundation demande à tous les membres et utilisateurs de la communauté LibreOffice de soutenir la Fondation GNOME dans ses efforts pour montrer au monde entier que nous, dans les communautés du Logiciel Libre, nous allons nous défendre contre tout abus du système des brevets.

Le monde du logiciel libre n'est pas de tout repos. Certaines personnes peu scrupuleuses n'hésitent pas à tenter de privatiser des application pour ensuite réclamer une rémunération. C'est ce qu'on appelle des "pattent trolls". Aujourd'hui, GNOME est aux prise avec "Rothschild Patent Imaging LLC", qui n'est pas à son coup d'essais, qui veut privatiser Shotwell.

1060 is the number of hours needed to capture this highly-resolved image (204 Megapixels) of the Large Magellanic Cloud. It might be the worldʼs longest exposure image within the amateur astronomers community.

In astrophotography, the amount of time you spend imaging a celestial object is inherently fundamental. The longer your cameraʼs shutter is open, the more light you get, so that the darkest regions of the sky start to get clearer. Usually, amateur astronomers are familiar with very long integration times, such as few minutes or even few tens of hours. However, reaching a total amount of several hundred hours increases the complexity of image processing and therefore remains quiet rare... though, five keen amateur astrophotographers challenged themselves and decided to capture a picture of 1060 hours of total exposure time, which can be considered as a world record (professional astronomy excluded).

This image is not only a technical accomplishment, but brings also a scientific interest to one of the most amazing deep sky object of the Southern sky : The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC).

The image is a mosaic made of 16 smaller fields of view, which, once stitched together form a high-resolution image of 204 Million of pixels! As of matter of fact, this is not the work of a single person but by a team of five french amateur astronomers called "Ciel Austral": Jean Claude CANONNE, Philippe BERNHARD, Didier CHAPLAIN, Nicolas OUTTERS et Laurent BOURGON.

"Ciel Austral" owns a remotely-controlled observatory located in the most prestigious skies of the planet, in Chile, and more precisely at the El Sauce Observatory (Coquimbo Region). A 160-mm APO-refractor telescope and a Moravian CCD were used to obtain this wonderful field. The datasets were taken over several months, ranging from 2018 and 2019. The heavy files handled represent 620 GB and needed few hundreds of hours to get out of the image processing step! Once stacked together, they make up the stunning figure of 1060 hours of exposure. If you are more curious, we invite you having a look at [1]their official website here.

You certainly noticed the color-rendering of this image is quite unusual. Indeed, astrophotographers used a couple of special filters which transmit narrow parts -lines- of the visible spectrum : the Hydrogen Alpha line at 656 nm, the Sulfur line at 672 nm and the Oxygen III spectral line at 500 nm. These kind of filters enable to emphasize chemical components located in high-density gas regions like nebulae, what standard RGB imaging can not perform.

Settled in Chile since 2017, the Ciel Austral Observatory gives to this 5-member team a way to expanding their knowledge and skills in astronomical imagery in order to fulfill its most ambitious projects. So, one should stay tuned for more of their upcoming fantastic images.

★ The Large Magellanic Cloud

This image shows us a unique view of the most famous night-sky object for Southern-Hemisphere astronomy. The LMC is actually a satellite neighbor of our Milky Way galaxy pretty close to us, at 50 kilo-parsecs distance (163k light-years). Scientists estimate it will do a full orbit around us in only 1.5 Billion years...

The Large Magellanic Cloud belongs to the Local Group - a list of about 50 galaxies close to each other, including our own.
If you have the opportunity to spend a night under the Southern Skies, this naked-eye-visible object will surprise you by its wide angular size and its strong brightness: LMC covers a slice of the sky which can contain 20 moon diameters, shining at a 0.9 magnitude!
