What are your thoughts on the future adoption of golang? I got the impression that it's poised to replace java, so i researched it a bit. From what I've seen there are very little job openings for it.

I played with it for a few days and while I like it as a language, I feel it doesn't bring much to the table to warrant displacing something like java in the coming decade or two.

Am I correct in this assumption or is there something I missed? Thoughts?

one guy got banned. wow hardcore.



People get banned over there all of the time for attempting to post porn and loli in the meadhall threads. I'm not shilling for it but to call it a den of shitlibs isn't correct. People like this anon:


>Leftists understand both socialism and capitalism better than right wing faggots because we consume sources of information outside of artifacted jpegs.

Regularly show up and get BTFO. Then they get banned and want to complain because they got BTFO by facts. It states right in the meta thread that the place is a Nazi hugbox but they're more than willing to engage in debate and talk politics if you don't act like an idiot. The anons over there seem well read too because it's one of the few places where I see books constantly getting dumped and the contents of them discussed. It's certainly better than nu/pol/ or /leftypol/.



Bullshit. I never moderate /pol/ and only ban on /a/ for shit like frogs and idols.



>ever had an empty catch clause?

No actually. An empty catch clause means you don't care that the try clause didn't finish, at which point you might as well not have run it in the first place. In general though, exceptions are useful for control flow; complaining about an empty catch block is like complaining about an if statement not matched by an else.

Both US and UK intelligence officials have put out statements over the weekend in support of Amazon, Apple, and Supermicro in regards to recent allegations made by Bloomberg in an article published last week.

On Thursday, Bloomberg reporters claimed that Chinese intelligence had secretly implanted spy chips inside motherboards used for Supermicro servers that eventually made their way inside the IT infrastructure of Apple, Amazon, and 30 other companies, but also inside the networks of US and UK governments.

The report shocked the public and cut Supermicro's stock value in half.

All three major companies named in the piece vehemently denied the Bloomberg report's claims.

Amazon cited "so many inaccuracies [...] that they're hard to count."

Apple suggested Bloomberg's sources "might be wrong or misinformed," and they might be "confusing their story with a previously-reported 2016 incident in which we discovered an infected driver on a single Super Micro server in one of [the Apple] labs."

Supermicro, too, denied the Bloomberg report, with the company saying they have "never been contacted by any government agencies either domestic or foreign regarding the alleged claims."

In its report, Bloomberg cited 17 unnamed sources from the intelligence and private sector.

But in its statement, Apple said that "no one from Apple ever reached out to the FBI about anything like this, and we have never heard from the FBI about an investigation of this kind -- much less tried to restrict it."

Over the past few days, several security researchers and infosec pundits have torn the Bloomberg article to pieces, criticizing everything from the incorrect artwork to the lack of technical details or the reporters' ability to convince sources to go on the record with their real names. Despite all this, Bloomberg stood by its reporting.

Just like the Intelaviv leaks these will be verified shortly. I don't think anyone with two halves of a brain cell to rub together is convinced it's all a lie.


We've known for years that this sort of thing is going on, why is it such a stretch that the Chinese would be doing to us what we obviously do to them? Heck it's possible that the implants that have been discovered are reverse-engineered from ones the NSA planted in hardware destined for China.



They're probably not lying as much as they're selectively telling parts of the truth. If there were a compromise of this type, it would almost certainly be highly classified, and the companies involved would be required not to comment on it for national security reasons. It's highly likely that C-level executives would be completely ignorant of this - knowledge would be compartmentalized by government requirement to only the personnel with direct knowledge of the event and their immediate superiors.



Yeah, I'm honestly surprised this didn't happen sooner.

Yes it was. Its hardened android optimized for security and with privacy features. There is replica and lineageos but their main object is not security.

Is RattlesnakeOS promising as a spiritual successor to CopperheadOS? Meanwhile James' continuing to fall into the shitcoin and shitty punk rock memes cuts off his free time for his Copperhead.

This calls itself "Coraline Ada Ehmke." Professionally, it's a mediocre coder. Personally, it's an insufferable little bitch who doesn't really contribute anything important to any community. Recently, it wrote a Code of Conduct that many popular open-source platforms have adopted.

With that out of the way, let's discuss what happened at the Linux Foundation: Linus adopted that CoC, replacing the old one, and decided to temporally step down from the Linux Foundation for personal reasons.

The new CoC introduces a lot of politically charged words, but it doesn't introduce any new rule. "Be excellent to each other" already implies that you shouldn't mistreat your fellow coworkers or contributors.

As for Linus, he decided to step down for a while. While he's not leading the Linux development right now, the next Linux release is already frozen. No new features will be added or removed, all that's left is bug patching and testing. It also removes the controversial NSA cryptography thingy. Linux development isn't "doomed" or "backdoored" or however you want to say it. Linus will most likely be back shortly and continue development. Maybe he'll stop his tantrums on the mailing lists, maybe he won't. Either way the introspection and the time off will surely be good for his mental and emotional health. A man needs to spend time with his family, after all.

All the insults, all the "well, let's make our own CoC that forbids LGBTQ and women and blacks dindu nigger jew SJW commie leftist" comments don't do you any favors, instead empowers other people (the ones you're supposedly against) by making them look like the victims. Their arguments are already worded and loaded in such a way that disagreeing with them will make you look like the bad guys. So please don't fall into their trap. Make your own projects following meritocracy and, of course, always call them out when they step out of their line and try to inject their stupid ideals where they don't belong. But do it with respect. They are the ones who're wrong, not you.

Identity politics have no place inside the workplace or a big FOSS project like Linux, GNU or LibreBoot. Let's keep it that way.

>ancient Greece was glassed while being "civilized and democractic"

You confounding Athenes with the entirety of ancient Greece is indicative of your general historical knowledge, as seen by your interpretation of ww2.

>>975822 time for some self reflection, claiming that leftards are the ones always rewriting history when we have >>976972 claiming Germany was on the defending side in WW2 sounds a lot like deflection.


Not the poster above, but I have a lot more respect for those ideas when their exposition isn't riddled with inaccuracies presented as absolute truth.

You can make a good argument about the past being better, it will look a lot like the "in favour of conservativism" article on SSC and nothing like the "muh plato, muh degeneracy, muh roman empire" drivel above.



>But do you REALLY believe that history isn't written by the victor?

It is. However you can't look at Germany's actions during WWII as "actually the good guys all along" the same way nobody but lunatics pretend the USA were right in Irak.

>The jews and the degenerated Weimar republic were the main reasons for the rise of Hitler.

If and even IF this were true, your conclusion is retarded. It's the same as saying "well, the USA's actions ended up in the creation of Al Qaeda, therefore Trump is responsible for the ISIS terror attacks in Europe." It's naive at best and very malicious at worst.



>you can't look at Germany's actions during WWII as "actually the good guys all along"

STFU kike. Germany armed Europe against the soviet invasion while being attacked from the west too because of warmongers and kikes. All that after boycotts enabled by jews. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Nazi_boycott_of_1933

Alright anons, redpill me on CNC furniture. Turns out the local college lets you commission products for free if you're a student, and that's what I am. I wanted to make one of these, but I'm not sure if I want my house to look like a wework.


Anyone got any recommendations on open-source furniture?

The 3d printed part of the pin would be using a metal nut and bolt embedded inside the 3d part. It's a common practice so I may not have explained it well.

And I'd rather talk about open source furniture using common materials than waste my time trying to change your mind. You can do a search for PVC pipe on instructables to see hundreds of projects that use it.



>open sores furniture

sounds like hipster bullshit to me. why would you want some shitty piece of literal trash made of dirty plastic tubes instead of a nice wooden desk that you can also build yourself?





What the fuck do you think you're doing? THe white balance wasn't off at all - all you did was adjust the saturation and contrast to make the table a completely different colour



CNC furniture is child-level designs that is only suitable for pine wood--that is cheap and shitty and not very durable over the long-term.

If you do this, just use cheap pine wood and be happy if it lasts 5 years.

Assuming you are doing CNC furniture and using pine,,,,,, for the desktop, you could use oak-veneered plywood if you wanted a nicer-than-normal desktop. Using plain pine boards for a table-top will dent and scratch really easily. Or another way I've seen is that you can use floor tiles for the desktop as well--tougher stuff like pergo.

If you want to build furniture that is durable, then you need to use hardwood. No pine or poplar.

And hardwood furniture must be designed with humidity expansion and contraction in mind, or else the furniture will crack and split.

Overall it is much stronger and more durable--but it does cost more to build, and is more trouble.


it's called plywood, fucking hipsters.

Just goto shop class like a white person.

Google's captcha is becoming nearly unavoidable now (even without the universal Cloudflare). There are many reasons to dislike it, mine being that it is a deanonymisation tool and that it is unpaid support for Google research.

I'm considering buying those $1 per 1000 human-powered captcha APIs to provide anonymous captcha solves for me. Doesn't solve the second problem though.

Has anyone here been able to convince a site owner to use or allow a regular captcha (or even no captcha)?

Looks like you're a bit slow, so let's review what was already discussed:

YOU> This site is literally hosted on cloudflare, and guess what captcha they use for their (((ddos))) protection?

ME> It doesn't matter what cloudflare uses, because I never fill out any of their captchas.

The cuckflare anti-DoS reCaptcha isn't the same as the 8chan base64-encoded text captcha that doesn't need javascript (pic-related).

Why does 4chan have google recaptcha sending them infos directly then? It's redundant. You're wrong, and just spreading FUD.

If you were to create an operating system that never connects to the world wide web, which software applications would you have on it? I would make sure it came with Kiwix so the user would have access to encyclopedic knowledge through Wikipedia. I would also have some basic note-taking software and personal wiki software in order to manage one's own day to day archival and knowledge management work. What programming languages would you emphasize it use so that a user could reasonably develop their own software to suit assorted needs? Java might be versatile enough, but I simply do not know if I could write everything I needed myself. What do you think?

If anything, you can find this thread as a thought experiment. How would you exist without internet access? Or imagine if you lived in a post-apocalyptic world where internet infrastructure as we know it ceased to operate.

>The day Linux understands that is the day Linux starts winning.

While Linux has already won on various fields, why does it has to? If Linux gets more popular, that will shift the focus of the Linux development in a direction more focused on "ease of use". It will only increase the ubuntuization of Linux. Linux' design has it's flaws but I wouldn't see targeting users who know their shit instead of people wanting everything to run with one click as one of them at all. Linux, as is, gives you freedom. The more easier to use you make it, the more things that take control away from the user will sneak into the standard setups like systemd has



>just get yourself a small windows partition

<just install a proprietary NSA spyware

Stop using proprietary software



In a scenario I described Win 10 would have to practically be a UEFI bootkit that logs keys and sends them to the NSA. From Linux, because when you boot into Windows you don't enter the key for the Linux partitions. If something like that is targeting you, using Linux probably won't help you either.

Also note that games tend to be proprietary software too. Those that aren't run very well on Linux. Also emulating Nintendo stuff works great on Linux.



Use Windows LTSB, or the Performance Edition being passed around on private trackers.

At least Cortana won’t be able to spy on what you do in Windows as well.

Or run the Geforce Now cloud gaming application within a Windows VM and then we don’t have to deal with the complexity of partitioning, installing, and switching from one OS to another because you can’t multitask if you’re running Windows on bare metal and you don’t want to do anything private on it.

I don't see any Motif widgets in that screenshot. If you're talking about the window borders, yeah they're inspired by Motif (which itself was allegedly inspired by Windows 3). The old FVWM 1.x (pic-related) had the same kind of window decorations, and this was before the Lesstif project existed (back when you actually had to pay for Motif). Here's some more old screenshots:




:^) would have been cooler


I wanted to use it at some point, but configuring it would be too much work so I didn't bother. That's the issue with software that is this configurable and doesn't have defaults, you might as well use the time that it would take to configure it from scratch to make your own window manager. I would rather do that. Way too lazy to make this amount of effort to figure out something that someone else made when that defeats the whole point of using someone else's software, especially considering that there are one or two window managers out there that are adequate and require pretty much no effort (though most window managers are unusable for one reason or another). It's cool as hell, probably the coolest window manager ever, and when configured properly it should be the perfect, but just looking at the amount of information that I would have to go through to make it work makes my head almost explode.


FVWM can look like absolutely anything. Being able to turn it into whatever you want is the whole point. It looks and works completely differently depending on the user's preferences. The default configuration is intentionally shit, so no one would ever use that.
