If you’re working on a web application that uses canvas to render any kind of data, you probably need to render some kind of textual information on top of your rendered scene. Today I wanted to see how cheap (or expensive) it is to render text on canvas so I setup some test code to measure the performance of text rendering on current generation of browsers (as time of writing). Please note that if you don’t update your scene frequently (30 frames per second for example, as in games) or don’t have lots of texts to display then performance shouldn’t be a concern. Also note that I’m not by any means rendering guru and these tests are not very standard so take the results with grain of salt. With this away lets see how it went:
After I discovered Son of Obsidian color scheme, I fell in love and suddenly I used it in every IDE I work with. Its easy to read and put less strain on eyes.
Here is original Son of Obsidian for C#.
You can download my C++ version here (Includes original C# styles as well).
If you have any suggestion or improvements, please let me know in comments section.
I came from windows background so I’m relatively new in linux world. I wanted to install SOCKS 5 server with authentication on my Ubuntu box and it turned up that the easiest to install and reliable one is Dante so i started installing it.
I couldn’t find much detailed installation process for Dante on Ubuntu so I decided to write one. Please note that my Ubuntu server version is 12.04 ( Precise Pangolin ) so i can not guarantee it will work on other versions as well but most probably it will.
What should be done:
- Install Dante server and PAM library
- Edit Dante configuration file “/etc/danted.conf”
- Add PAM configuration file
- Create user accounts
- Start the server and check settings
