中國畫家背叛週年

某位中國(中華人民共和國大陸地區)畫家於2020年1月23日最後與Meow聯絡,而現在已經是2021年1月24日,即零聯絡首日的週年。他(或他可能的朋友)於2020年10月在Fur Affinity上傳多份委託,他朋友亦私下就此爭議和Meow聯絡,但這些舉措並不能抹滅無視客戶一年的事實。

中國畫家如此糟糕的行徑,再加上中國隱瞞COVID-19案例,我們要如何再信任中國?鑑於許多中國畫家在網上態度傲慢,Meow希望至少客戶不要再向中國畫家委託作品,因為我們不需要破壞社會信任的群體。

First Anniversary of Betrayal from the Chinese Artist

Some artist from China (the mainland region of the People’s Republic of China) communicated with Meow for the last time on 23 January 2020. It is now 24 January 2021, the first anniversary of Day 1 with zero communication with the artist. He (or his possible friend) uploaded a plenty of commissions on Fur Affinity in October 2020, and his friend contacted Meow privately for the issue of zero communication. Unfortunately, the actions did not eliminate the fact that he has been keeping ignoring his customers for one year.

With the terrible behaviours from the Chinese artist and how China did for hiding COVID-19 cases, how can we trust China anymore? Since many other Chinese artists are also arrogant on the internet, Meow hopes that at least all customers should stop commissioning any artwork to any Chinese artist. We do not need a group of people destroying the trust of our society.

解決macOS色帶問題

macOS可能在外接顯示器呈現色帶,要解決需參照以下步驟:

  1. 下載patch-edid.rb的ZIP壓縮包並解壓縮
  2. 開啟終端機輸入ruby並拖入patch-edid.rb,看起來就像ruby /<path>/patch-edid.rb,然後按下回車鍵(確認鍵)
  3. 您會在/Users/<您的帳戶>/看到DisplayVendorID-xxxx檔案夾
  4. 拷貝到/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides/,而您應先行照此結構新增檔案夾
  5. 重新開機

這方法適用近年發行的macOS,含Big Sur(版本11),並不需要停用SIP或其他安全功能。

Solution of colour banding on macOS

macOS may show colour banding on an external display. To solve the issue, we need to follow the steps:

  1. Download the ZIP package of patch-edid.rb and uncompress it
  2. Type in ruby in Terminal and drag patch-edid.rb so it will look like ruby /<path>/patch-edid.rb, and then press the return key
  3. You will find the folder DisplayVendorID-xxxx in the /Users/<your account>/ folder
  4. Copy the folder to /Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides/, and you should create the folders by yourself following the same structure first
  5. Restart your computer

This solution works for recent macOS versions including Big Sur (version 11) and does not require SIP or any security function disabled.

Simple image formats comparison and optimisation

There have been many tests of image formats earlier before, but this time DSSIM was introduced for the more objective and more scientific comparison between lossy formats including JPEG, WebP and AVIF. Optimisation for 🔞Reconquest at Night was also introduced for reducing colour banding and adding a tremendous shallow depth of field.

More AVIF and WebP lossy tests

Here we have more lossy tests of AVIF and WebP comparing to JPEG or PNG, but with the much smaller resolution and very close file size for testing the real-life usages. By using the <picture> tag, the priority is AVIF, WebP, and JPEG/PNG so all browsers can display.

<picture>
	<source srcset="photo.avif" type="image/avif">
	<source srcset="photo.webp" type="image/webp">
	<img src="photo.jpg" alt="">
