MIDIMonster: Multi-Protocol Translation (MIDI, OSC, ArtNet, Evdev Input)

  • Named for it's scary math, the MIDIMonster is a universal translation tool between multi-channel absolute-value-based control and/or bus protocols, such as MIDI, DMX/ArtNet and OSC.
  • Each protocol supported by MIDIMonster is implemented by a backend, which takes global protocol-specific options and provides instances, which can be configured further.
  • Relative axes (EV_REL-type events), such as generated by mouses, are currently handled in a very basic fashion, generating only the normalized channel values of 0, 0.5 and 1 for any input less than, equal to and greater than 0, respectively.
  • Extended event type values such as EV_LED, EV_SND, etc are recognized in the MIDIMonster configuration file but may or may not work with the internal channel mapping and normalization code.
  • The architecture is split into the midimonster core, handling mapping and resource management, and the backends, which are shared objects loaded at start time, which provide a protocol mapping to instances / channels.

Trump suggests FBI failed to look into Florida shooting suspect because it was 'spending too much time' on the Russia investigation

  • Trump isn't the first to suggest the bizarre theory — prominent far-right Twitter users have speculated for several days that the FBI was too busy undermining Trump to follow up on investigating potential threats.
  • South Florida Sun-Sentinel/Susan Stocker via Associated Press Trump, in his tweet, was apparently referring to the FBI's remarkable admission on Friday that it failed to follow protocol in investigating a tip on 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who allegedly gunned down 17 people at his former high school on Wednesday.
  • Someone close to Cruz contacted the FBI's tipline to report details about Cruz's "gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting," the FBI said in a statement.

Investing in cryptocurrencies? Understand how to diversify your portfolio

  • So, following Monegro’s thesis, and using Metcalfe’s Law, the demand for Ether is set to increase as more dapps get built and gain real world adoption, appreciating Ether’s value accordingly, while at the same time presenting it as a relatively low risk investment vehicle.
  • It’s also worth noting that, at the time of writing, Ether’s market cap is at around $92 billion, while the combined market cap of all tokens built on top of Ethereum, is roughly $30 billion, so this certainly seems to support the theory of fat protocols.
  • To add to the uncertainty, you run the risk of investing in a project that seems to fit perfectly within your diversification strategy, only to have it announce, after the ICO, that it’s moving to another blockchain, like Kik is planning to do with its Kin token, moving it from Ethereum to Stellar.

Tutorial: HTTP Client in C with libdill

  • You don't want user of a TLS socket to be able to write random data to the underlying TCP connection and thus confuse the TLS implementation.
  • If you want to do a similar trick yourself hclose on the socket does exactly that: It deallocates the entire protocol stack.
  • Now we can compile the program and test whether we can open an HTTPS connection to www.example.org.
  • HTTP protocol is used to initiate the conversation with the web server, to let it know what page we are looking for or any other options we may like to convey.
  • If we did not set that option it would leave the connection open just in case we wanted to send more HTTP requests.
  • At that point we are ready to detach the HTTP protocol and retrieve the underlying TCP socket.
