I haven't used Ubuntu for years, ever since they started selling their souls to Amazon and bundling literal actual botnet malware in their distro, but for some reason I decided to give it an honest go today. Forget the Amazon shit. Forget the systemd. SNAP is the worst thing in the fucking world. Snap is pure absolute cancer.

If you worked to make a COMMERCIAL application why would you fucking disclose your source-code so some nigger can just copy your shit?

I'm not saying software shouldn't be free, and that it shouldn't face audits based on privacy laws etc. It would be the best for mainstream technological advancements to have a free software stance, but let's face it there are not many people out there that r/w programming. Most people dont care and are brainlets.

There should be an option to opt-out as well.

So let me get this straight.

The blockchain works by having multiple people host a node which contains ALL the data.

So everyone who runs a node has to host the ALL the data.

Why is this seen like it could have any use other than hosting shitcoins?

 No.8255

>The blockchain works by having multiple people host a node which contains ALL the data.

Right, essentially blockchain is a really messy way to solve the trust problem. But it does work, amazingly there is a real economy there. Growing, by number of users, each year, for almost ten years. By making the ledger public but with pseudonymous addresses it allows for a certain degree of privacy.

>So everyone who runs a node has to host the ALL the data.

No, they don't have to, but generally yes, they choose to. You can prune the data after verifying it in some implementations. But even then you have to keep a copy of the current unspent transaction data so you verify any new spends (which I think is over 2GB). That method isn't perfect, as when you need to rebuild the database for whatever reason you will have to re-download the entire thing. You don't need to host a node, if you give your trust away to a third party to do it for you.

>Why is this seen like it could have any use other than hosting shitcoins?

Because, in the real world, it already does have other uses. Not proven in the long run, but still as first attempts. Blockchain is here to stay. Even with all its many faults the problems like scaling and privacy are being worked on by a lot of dumb monkeys and eventually they tend to get a few things working.

There are a ton of scams. Just like there are a ton of scams on the net in general. Don't be an idiot. Don't invest in anything ever (everything is a gamble in life), just learn and research. Or take risks if you want to have a good chance of losing money.

There are also a ton of shitcoins, but who cares? Blockchain, even with all its flaws opened up a lot of potential. Economic potential to be sure, but also a lot of scam potential for gullible fools.

There are some solutions there involve replacing the blockchain entirely with another trustless technological solution. Some of which promise to combine all transactional data and unspent coin data into a tiny amount of data, like a single hash. In other words thPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

No, but maybe that's because I was too repulsive when I was using a laptop. Or maybe I didn't notice it at all.

For the record, I used the cli literally every day, for doing everyday tasks like managing my music collection (which I removed by accident -- oops, sudo rm -R ~/Downloads/shit /var/lib/mpd/music), connecting to the university wifi, and so on. It didn't seem to bother anyone.

So now we have to buy Reddit coins when we want to guild posts and comments. On one hand it feels like they're gamifying Reddit, but on the other hand now we can buy Reddit Silver and Reddit Platinum, which is 2 more options than we had before.

is there a good way to route my phone's audio to the same headphones as i'm using on my phone?

i want to make calls while using my computer for other things. it's okay if the microphone only goes to the phone call, but the computer and phone audio need to combine, and the desktop sound can't be broadcast to the other person, or else i'd just use my desktop speakers.

i've experimented with physically splicing wires but i'm nervous about using my abominations on any devices that actually matter to me

been using it for W7 + autocad 2014, not really complex stuff (around 4-8mb of 2d sketch files). i also use them for 3d stuff in dss solidworks (because i need to export them later into cnc files), and sometimes use inventor while my kid going to learn basic stuff.
