"The Papua New Guinea (#PNG) Minister for #Bougainville Affairs is misleading MPs, Bougainville's lead negotiator on the independence question says. Manasseh Makiba told PNG Parliament this week that the Bougainville referendum results are non-binding...But the Minister heading Bougainville's Independence Implementation Mission said the referendum in 2019, in which Bougainvilleans overwhelmingly chose independence from PNG, was constitutionally guaranteed."

#Naarm Friday 1 December morning star ceremony
The #MorningStar songline is one of the oldest living songlines on earth.
Call to Ceremony led by #Wurundjeri Elder Aunty Joy Murphy, followed by #Yolngu members of Yothu Yindi who will perform Banambirri (Morning Star), Timor Oan's from #TimorLeste, Contemporary dancers from #TorresStrait, Sprigga Mek from #PNG, the Black Sistaz and members of the #WestPapua community.
One of the ways in which I would like to minimize disk usage is using #JpegXL instead of #PNG (or even #JPEG, but I'm not hosting JPEG images), which I cannot do as long as #Firefox doesn't enable JPEG XL support in the mainline edition of its browser (no, I don't care that #Google has decided to boycott it in #Chrome, just like I haven't cared about their lack of #MathML support and proper #SVG animation support for years).
To get this out of the little bubble in which I mentioned it I post it separately because the PNG website really deserves more love and attention 😂
Dear PNG-developers, please invest in design, move away from tables for layout and please please please use better graphics because frankly, your website is like an anti-commercial for your own wonderful product which is the fabulous PNG ❤

Been spending the afternoon optimizing World of Warcraft Datamining automation for https://wyrimaps.net/wow. Got to the rather exciting point where I only have to extra the resources I need from the game and scanners will pick up any new work and miners will then do that work. Used to have a step in between for the BLP to #PNG conversion using a desktop app. But after finding some #PHP code that can do that I automated that. (Hence using threads in PHP.)

On my part, what I've started doing has been to start serving it as the preferred format for the (very few) self-hosted images on my website, and I'm pleased to announce that I *am* getting hits for the #JXL version of the images instead of the #PNG version from #Apple: I knew that #SafariBrowser had introduced support for #JpegXL this summer, and I can now confirm that it seems to be working (so, #Mozilla, how about switching that flag to the main branch?)
When exporting a #png you can use a high compression level to reduce the file size. The compression is lossless so it doesn't affect the image quality.
It's a great way to save some space on your computer but also on your beloved #fediverse instance (storage aint free after all) !
I made a tiny graph to summarize. It shows where you can set the compression in some #OpenSource softwares.
Between, Blender default's png compression is at 15%.
Reports in the Murdoch press (uncritical for once) say #Albanese has agreed to spend $600 million over ten years to establish an #NRL team based in #PNG. That's equal to our entire aid program for one year, or 10% every year for the next ten. Has any government ever had such skewed priorities #auspol

Und noch eine Bitte: Der Verein hat mir ein PNG von seinem Logo gegeben, das recht klein ist. Daher würde ich es gerne in ein Vektorformat konvertieren. Wahrscheinlich sind das für jemanden, der Erfahrung hat, nur ein paar Klicks. Ich würde ihm die PNG kurz zuschicken - gibt es da jemanden?

I've got a PNG of a single black pixel for a game project, and I can't help but notice that the file's 4.7kB in size. I'll freely admit that's a trivial amount in the grand scheme of things, but for one pixel? A 1x1 square of 000000 colour? How does that end up taking multiple thousands of bytes to describe? #gamedev #computing #data #png

In an unusually coordinated move, i have made new release of PyPNG, the pure Python PNG library, and checked that it works with Python 3.12 released only a few days ago.
Install with python -m pip install git+https://email@example.com
See more at https://gitlab.com/drj11/pypng
Share and Enjoy!
[edit: no, i can't work out how to make that pip install command display literally on Mastodon; sorry]
The thread is really quite lovely and interesting. There are plenty of non-sentimental stories about local life, and how it feels to be in a jungle. Also stories how he's been giving lectures and talks in the villages about climate change.
The recurring theme is that people want to do their part, and for them it is preserving the local forests and act against deforestation. The sea level rise is obv an issue there too.

For those who are interested - it uses stb, not libpng, to get a large number of image formats for very little code debt.
The lie has been exposed. The Morrison Gov & now the Albanese Gov have hid behind the lie that they have no duty of care or responsibility to the 75 refugees still trapped in PNG because we have no ongoing arrangements. FOI documents have revealed a secret PNG funding deal exists
PACIFIC / PAPUA NEW GUINEA /AUSTRALIA
Australia urged to help refugees experiencing 'life and death' situation in PNG
Calls are growing louder for Canberra to bring all refugees - who had sought asylum in #Australia but were detained offshore - into the country for medical treatment and processing.
A separate agreement signed today by the US and #PNG “will enable the U.S. Coast Guard’s Shiprider program to partner with and enhance PNG’s maritime governance capacity, enabling them to exercise their authority and enforce their laws and regulations where they have jurisdiction,” according to State Dept.
Secretary of State Blinken and #PNG Prime Minister Marape have signed a Defense Cooperation Agreement to enhance security cooperation, strengthen the bilateral relationship, improve the capacity of the PNGDF and increase stability and security in the region, according to the State Department.
"Is this a win for China?" asks a reporter after Biden finishes comments, noting scrapping of the Quad meeting in Australia and cancelling Pacific Islands leaders' discussion in #PNG.
"No," he replies.

"We don't have anything to preview on any additional travel," says White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre when asked about expected travel by President Biden to #PNG where he would meet with about a dozen Pacific Islands leaders.

I just merged my first (larger) contribution to #sequoia's #weboftrust tooling:
The sq-wot #CLI tool can now export to #graphviz #DOT for most of its subcommands. This means you can generate your web of trust as a graph and convert that to e.g. #svg or #png.
I'll do a more extensive write-up of this in the coming days.

I've started playing around with #JPEGXL for reasons <https://sociale.network/@oblomov/109806549839076180> and it's honestly an amazing format. Excellent for archival with lossless compression, transparency, animation, perceptually optimal lossy compression. It could replace all existing web image formats (#JPEG, #GIF, #PNG, #WebP, you name it) tomorrow.
So the question is: why did #Google withdraw its support for it, after contributing heavily to it on the first place?
Logging is threatening the Torricelli Mountains, a biodiversity-rich forested range in Papua New Guinea known for its tree kangaroos and other threatened species of birds and mammals.
The Tenkile Conservation Alliance, a Papua New Guinean NGO, has led an effort to protect the area, but the government has yet to officially designate what would be the Torricelli Mountain Range Conservation Area.

An entertaining article on the #PNG image file format by @David3141593@twitter.com
À chaque fois qu'on poste une image, on met une description alternative. C'est bien !
Si on poste plusieurs fois la même image, ou si on l'emprunte quelque part pour la reporter, on doit copier coller le alt en plus de l'image.
Pourtant les images ont des méta-données. Est-ce qu'il existe pour chaque format (png, jpg) un champ méta-données prévu pour le alt (idéalement pour chaque langue) qui pourrait être utilisé par Mastodon pour pré remplir le alt?
@stux In all honesty, .webp is a great invention in its own right.
If you just objectively look at things like compression, filesize, features (transparency) etc. it's just a great blend of other things.
#PNG s have transparently but they take up a huge amount of space whereas #JPG s can't handle transparency and their quality can deteriorate easily (depending on the settings, of course).
I'd just wish for a greater adoption of support for #WEBP since it's been around for like 12 years now...
It's amazing how many awful versions there are out there of the #Nakatomi logo. I found a #PNG that was really close and used that for a template to make an #SVG of it. Yes, I hand made the SVG to make sure all the things were correct as possible. The #font seems to be different all over the place from what I have seen in the screen captures though.

Still need to visit 2 more continents - Antarctica and Africa. I’ve been to 42 US states, including AK and HI.
