performance – Is it a bad idea to store all textures in linear color-space?

I am wondering about the performance behind color-space conversions for textures during reading.

If a project decides to go with a linear workflow, as in, when doing any sort of color manipulation, like lighting, they operate on within the linear color-space, is there any good reason to not store all texture assets in the linear color-space?

My understanding is that when loading textures which are stored in sRGB, the GPU can do the conversion to linear for you very quickly. Is that cost completely negligible? Why not just store all the textures in that form?

The only reason I can think against this is that you may want to store the textures in a color-space that looks like the one you intend to display to (if you’re going to display to sRGB then you should store the textures in sRGB). In that case, why not master the texture as sRGB but then store them on disk already converted to linear colorspace?

iphone – Apple Watch deletes all songs from its internal store after iOS sync

I have an iTunes playlist with 150 songs set to sync with Apple Watch. I sleep, let the Watch on its charger, then by morning I have all 150 songs on it working fine. I can confirm this by going into the Watch app then General > About. However, whenever I sync my iTunes with my iPhone, all songs are automatically deleted from the Apple Watch, even if the playlist is still the same (on the iPhone nothing happens, everything is still fine). Then the songs will only be synced again when I put it back on the charger.

Anyone knows why it might be happening?

Thank you!

encryption – Does PGP passphrase necessary if I store private key and passphrase in the same place?

I’m building a system that generates PGP key and store private key in secret vault. One thing I’m not fully understanding is the need for passphrase.

I can generate a random passphrase during the key generation and then store it in the secret vault along side with the private key, but I’m wondering if it has any benefit. If I store both passphrase and private key in the same place and that place can be considered secure, is there any additional benefit of using the passphrase? Or just storing the private key securely is enough?

sqlite – Store data from get API into Database using Python 3

I’ve seen an example on how to store data coming from get API to sqlite db from the following link Insert data into sqlite3 database with API.
However, I couldn’t understand this part of the code:

drivers = d["MRData"]["DriverTable"]["Drivers"]

Can someone please show me how we can store data from APi as shown in the shared link or at least clarification of that line of the code which I didn’t understand?

Thanks

Ho to activate Apple ID on iTunes Store via Web?

I want to publish a podcast show on Apple Podcast. Apple requires an Apple ID that is activated on the iTunes Store for this process.

I am running Linux on my computers and Android on mobile devices. I don’t have any Apple device at all. Nor do I have access to a Windows PC running iTunes for Windows.

Now, how can I activate my Apple ID on iTunes? Is there an iTunes web frontend available? Can the iTunes Store be accessed without Apple OSes or Windows at all?

user – Term Store Management Link is invisible for Group Manager and Contributors

I want to give a user access to the Term Store Management of a site collection and I noticed that I can add multiple people to the Group Manager field. So I tried it and the user can access this page, but only if he or she specifies the direct URL, which is https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/Websitecollection/_layouts/15/termstoremanager.aspx.

However, when this user opens the website settings, the Term Store Management menu item is not visible… I find it very inappropriate that only the direct link to the Term Store Management can be used.

Is there a user role that can access the Site Collection Term Store anyway? Or how can I include the link in the websitesettings of the websitecollection?

plugins – How do I allow a user to purchase an expiring passcode to access part of my website, from my online store, similar to pay-per-view?

I am trying to add functionality to a website I am starting to create, which is a bit like a pay-per-view video channel, where a user (without registering) would go onto my online store and purchase a product, which in this case would be an automatically-generated passcode.

The user would receive the passcode via email and then use it to gain access to a specific (hidden/private) part of the website. The passcode would automatically expire a certain amount of time after it is first used, such as a few days.

I have done a bit of research and come across various membership plugins, such as MemberPress and Restrict Content Pro. However, these do not do what I require. I don’t want the user to create an online account; I simply want a passcode to be generated when paid for through the online store.

Is this possible? Could someone point me in the right direction for a plugin, or even a tutorial that explains how to do this? Thanks!
