Makes you wonder


Mr. 1 thought that "Gandhi-ism and all it stands for will, sooner or later, have to be grappled with and finally crushed". Also, that "It is alarming and also nauseating to see Mr Gandhi, a seditious Middle-Temple lawyer, now posing as a fakir of a type well-known in the East, striding half-naked up the steps of the Vice-regal parley on equal terms with the representative of the King-Emperor". And: the apartheid state.

No need to talk about Mr. 2, I think. Quoting his democratical and peace-loving words "I don't see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its people. The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves", "Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac" etc.

Mr. 3 let us all know about the threat of the ManBearPig . Also he wants us to know that we will save the world if we unplug the TV while we sleep [but travelling with his private jet(s) is ok].

To Mr. 4 we should bow.

Mr. 1 was voted greatest Briton. Mr 2 and 3 got a nobel peace price. Mr 4 didn`t.

OpenGL, Glut and Intel 945GM

Running an OpenGL app on a laptop with an Intel 945GM (128 shared) graphics card, I got a little disappointed by a couple of things such as the low fps. But the major problem was quite strange: artifacts, dissapearing polygons. Anyway turns out that the default value for the depth buffer in the OpenGl settings for the graphics card was 16 bits. So what you should do if you are having problems with OpenGL apps (mine was build with glut) on this kind of graphics cards is:
  • right click, graphics properties (or the long way: right click, properties, settings, advanced, select the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver and then click on Graphics Properties)
  • From the menu, click the '3d Settings' button
  • Finally, change the Depth Buffer Bit Depth from whatever it is to 24 Bit Depth Buffer.
