I fixed it by rewriting the code with a new approach tracking Provenance (which shader(s) the uniform is active in) of widget changes, instead of having multiple VariableEditors which was causing too many headaches (and I think that was ultimately a bad approach).

```
fract(0.5 * dwell + time / 3.0) < 0.5
? vec3(1.0, 0.0, 0.0)
: vec3(1.0);
```

Where dwell (aka ) is computed 4x per pixel for image-space distance estimation (because using dFdx and dFdy on computed data is too low-resolution and fraught with peril in the event of incoherent control flow, works fine for the input smooth coordinates to know where to offset the 4x dwell computations).

For some reason I always seem to end up with that look a bit like insects

Hacked on some C++ code, to make a Logarithmic mode for sliders in Fragmentarium, most useful for the Camera2D Zoom shader uniform variable.

Added rotation and skew to FragM's Camera2D code. Doing it only in the shaders is not possible because the mouse interactions don't match up with the image.

new release : kalle's fraktaler: 2.14.6

mathr.co.uk/kf/kf.html#kf-2.14

- new feature: high quality image downscaling with anti-aliasing using the Pixman library
- new feature: ball method for period detection in Newton-Raphson zoom
- new feature: command line KFB map colouring
- bugfix: image is refreshed from first calculated pixels, instead of 1% (reported by Fluoroantimonic_Acid)
- bugfix: don't read Iteration Divisor from KFB map files (for historical reasons this is an integer in the file format, instead of the floating point value that it can take now in the rest of the program)
- upgrade to boost 1.70.0
- upgrade to mpfr 4.0.2p1
- upgrade to png 1.6.37
- upgrade to glm 0.9.9.5
- upgrade to mingw64 g++ 8.3-win32 20190406 and rebuild everything

dismantled my to find out that the clock battery has leaked and caused some corrosion near the Gary chip, very similar to hackaday.com/2019/01/25/resurr

I don't have the tools to repair it, unfortunately :(

The bot only renders high resolution versions of the most interesting (according to its algorithmic fitness functions) images.

I chose the 4 most interesting (according to my own personal preference) of 8 of those high resolution images.

It takes about a minute (wall-clock time, powerful CPU) to decide whether to render high resolution, and about 3 minutes to render (all of this depends on fractal iteration formula, which is randomly generated, and location specifics).

mathr.co.uk/harmonic-protocol/ My latest drone piece now works in Chromium and Google Chrome. In those browsers you have to press the button to make sound because of . In Mozilla Firefox it plays automatically.

If the sound stutters, your machine is not powerful enough. Probably needs a laptop rather than a phone. Or try compiling the (using the library for audio) source code natively, which is typically at least twice as CPU-efficient.
