Deus Ex: Invisible War Crashing: Fix

Symptom: Deus Ex:Invisible War (DEIW) runs fine initially but then becomes 'sped-up'. When you move your character the movement is extremely fast. Other characters move extremely fast. Menu items flash fast, tooltips appear and disappear to quickly. In short it looks like time has sped up. Eventually IW will crash.

Solution (from a tip here): Go to the AMD website and search for "Dual-core optimizer". Install this software.

For other platforms look at the three other suggestions on the linked page.

Python: Multiprocessing: passing multiple arguments to a function

Write a wrapper function to unpack the arguments before calling the real function. Lambda won't work, for some strange un-Pythonic reason.


import multiprocessing as mp def myfun(a,b): print a + b def mf_wrap(args): return myfun(*args) p = mp.Pool(4) fl = [(a,b) for a in range(3) for b in range(2)] #mf_wrap = lambda args: myfun(*args) -> this sucker, though more pythonic and compact, won't work p.map(mf_wrap, fl)

Flowing text in inkscape (Poster making)

You can flow text into arbitrary shapes in inkscape. (From a hint here).

You simply create a text box, type your text into it, create a frame with some drawing tool, select both the text box and the frame (click and shift) and then go to text->flow into frame.

UPDATE:

The omnipresent anonymous asked:
