Shader Tiling Texture Overlapping between X and Z Axes

I have a shader (code at the bottom of this) that I’m using for a terrain. It renders a texture on the sides of the terrain (the x and z axes) and between those axes the texture tends to overlap. I want to fix the overlapping and if possible make it so both axis are […]

question about higher resolution in diablo 2

In Diablo II, there must be some function which draws the viewport. In theory, would it be possible to change this function such that it draws the viewport 0.5 e.g. half size tiles for all objects so one can play in a higher resolution without needing a bigger screen? And allow it to draw more […]

Could an extremely strong reducing/oxidizing agent attack N2 molecules?

Could a very strong reducing agent like lithium aluminium hydride or a very strong oxidzing agent like manganese heptoxide react with N2? If not, why, since nitrogen can both give and take electrons to achieve a more stable configuration?

Analysis of post-HF wavefunctions

Hartree-Fock method introduces electron (spin)orbitals and they are commonly used for qualitative rationalization of many molecular properties. However, MOs have meaning only if we ignore electron correlation. Post-HF non-DFT methods build correlated wave-function, but due to correlation extracting independent orbitals from them is not possible. Electron density still is a somewhat informative concept even with […]

Samba Fileshare: Is it possible to create a public (guest) share which is protected by a password?

I have a public Samba share deployed on my network. Currently this is somewhat a security risk. I am aware that I can create individual user accounts, with associated passwords, as a form of security, however is it possible to protect the share using a single password, effectively a master password? OS is Debian 10.
