Hi. I need some quick testing from people using Linux and High-DPI / >1 Desktop Scale Factor.

Just added support for this on DPF Linux side, so testing is very much appreciated.

To test:
git clone --recursive -b develop
make -C DPF

The test requires OpenGL and X11 develop packages installed and a working audio setup (if you are on archlinux you should always have this)

Let me know if it scales properly, see screenshot for an example

Oh and btw, while website is being tweaked and updated, time for a Carla bugfix release! v2.3.2 fixing a few regressions introduced in v2.3.1

Looking for ideas on a new page (again for the site).

If you look at it should be pretty clear what it tries to do.
But well, it looks horrible 😅

Suggestions will be very welcome!

PS: the page might take a tiny bit to load

Need to ask for help/feedback/testing again.
Did some iframe trickery to get a page embed into another one with its full height, as then only 1 scrollbar is needed (from the main page).

If you have a few seconds, open up and tell me:
1. Do you see [kan]board style contents within the page content?
2. Is the content height correct? (that is, you can see the full thing)
3. Do you see only 1 scrollbar, or more?
4. Does anything look out of place?


Making the KXStudio homepage more mobile friendly, getting most of the contents to be friendly to vertical layouts.
Still need to figure out a way to do a "hamburguer" menu or something to access all the previous menu entries.
But the content should be way more responsive compared to before.

Please give it a try at

Do you spot anything wrong?

PS: If you visited the page before, you might need to force-reload to get rid of browser cache.

Finally it was my turn to get a vaccine too.
Quite straight forward and painless.
I was given the janssen one, so no 2nd round next month needed.

Please get yours too, and eventually we can all get together again safely. 🤗

crypto is short for "cryptography"

if you want a shorter word for "cryptocurrency", the word you are looking for is "ponzi"

An argument against client-side decorations (CSD) as a picture.

Can you guess which applications use CSD and which ones use SSD?

The inconsistency on these commercial applications is a constant annoyance...

My poor little server, so much ffmpeg importing @unfa 's videos 😂 😂 😂

Anyone knows of a good collection of Reverb IR files that are CC-0/public-domain licensed?

I saw people worried about #vaccines causing death. My wife is a doctor so I asked her.

It's complicated, but the general takeaway is: all medicine has risk involved. Just like driving a car or even walking near a roadway. Yet the risk vs reward ratio is usually such that we decide to use medicine. In people who don't have strong independent risk factors vaccines should not cause issues. There's always outliers, but generally vaccines save way, way more lives than they cost.


A new JACK2 release. 🚀
Don't forget to restart the JACK server after the update.

LWN has a little article on github copilot

Also links to which is pretty interesting

I like this quote from the github gist:
> The inevitable conclusion is that Copilot can and will write security vulnerabilities on a regular basis


On the topic of telemetry and tracking, did you know nvidia drivers on Windows come bundled with a bunch of tracking software services?

An old article about this, not sure if still up to date, but still quite "interesting"
