I've seen the threads before about what freetard social networking is like, but holy shit, I didn't think it was that bad until I saw it with my own eyes.

I'm a musician who's into /tech/ and since I don't really social media, but I thought maybe I'd give Mastodon a try, if not to share my music and make some like-minded friends.

Mastodon.art seems all ri--

< Microaggressions ("not all men", white/man/cis-splaining, using the wrong pronouns to address someone after being corrected, etc)

Oh. Well that seems oddly out of place for a platform for art. Fuck it, let's hit up Mastodon.social instead. Their rules seem less bizarrely specific.

You'd think gays make up 75% of the population if you didn't visit any place else. Oh nice, a hairy penis in my local feed two minutes in.

Yeah, I'm not touching that piece of shit anymore. I went through more instances, and they all seem to be full of people who think their sexuality is an identity and a career. I see why normies and artists who aren't rabid weeaboo hentai fingerpainters steer clear of this shit.

Is there any freetard networks that aren't insufferable garbage like this? Or does it just come with the territory?

I stopped logging into my account even though it's on a non-kosher instance because it is that hard to find good accounts in the sea of pozz that is the global timeline.

Besides you still have autism on the free(er) instances including pozz'ed individuals that think they are hot shit for not blocking on sight.



Martagon was made by Garçon, a diaperfag retard sjw. He forked it from GNU Social, a previously esoteric yet fully functional social network platform. Zoe Quinn was one of the first adopters to his retard network. Shortly after he blocked entire "problem" instances and broke the federation connection to his Mastadon multiple times.

Do not once think Mastadon is "Freetard's social networking"

Linux 5.0 to stop non-GPL kernel modules from using floating point or SIMD instructions in a thinly veiled attempt to kill ZFS (the only good FOSS filesystem) on Linux.

Mailing list discussion here, the people behind the decision don't even try to hide their disdain for ZFS even when other kernel developers say the decision will harm them


>My tolerance for ZFS is pretty non-existant.

Note that this will also kill the performance of all non-GPL crypto code and anything else that relies on vector instructions or floating point.

>zfs is bloat

I know this is a troll but I also know there are retards that actually believe this so I am replying for them.

I used to have issue after issue with files put into cold-storage for years at a time. Since I've moved to ZFS I've had no issue. It is the only filesystem for Linux that offers compression AND data/checksum redundancy so it's a must have for plebs who want to get into long term storage without the hassle of a bunch of little programs and potentially data corruption.

>unbackable kernel

Yeah right, like anyone who's ever sold something as 'unhackable' hasn't been completely full of shit


Putting the 'unhackable' bullshit aside, I'm more interested of seL4 as a microkernel. How is it compared to previous attempts at creating microkernels? I heard it's kinda fast, but I don't know if it's fast enough to be a serious alternative to monolithic ones.


I'm a brainlet so explain to me in simplest terms how can an unhackable kernel exist and why other software can't be unhackable like seL4 as well?



and oh could future DRM schemes borrow some ideas from seL4 and how catastrophic would that be?



Well seL4, as its name implies, is a part of the L4 series. This paper provides some insight into the developments of L4 and seL4 in particular.

Why does anyone watch this retard niggerfaggot? I just watched this video for the hell of it, and in it he literally claims that using Cuckflare's DNS will not only make your network more secure but also the concept in the video is it "Improves your phone's WiFi". Nothing he said in there has anything to do with Wireless Fidelity. He literally just changed the DNS settings and said "It's faster, goys!"

Who actually watches this faggot? This is only the second video I've ever seen by him. I thought "Maybe I judged this millenial faggot too early" but then, after watching this, I realized it is him and not me.

Decreasing number of people, producing food locally, producing things locally, by using 3D printers, sharing goods, knowledge. Sounds like utopia, or communism, but I can't see a better solution, until decent energy source shows up.

It's an hour and a half long round trip to go to the nearest store that sells food and 6 hours for going to an actual grocery store.


As someone who has lived with underground wires the only real reason not to have them is the initial cost. They need less repairs, are less susceptible to outages, can't be knocked down, unlikely to ever be severed, and generally provide consistent electricity. Fact of the matter is that unless there is no one to supply electricity to above ground wires are worse in every category except initial cost.

Pathetic that in today's USA the only factor to consider is the cost. "oh, you want a quality product? nah, too much. we'd rather bilk you out of every cent we can by using nature as the fall guy. suck it up it costs too much"

Kike shit.

>Google has been forced to shut down a data analysis system it was using to develop a censored search engine for China after members of the company’s privacy team raised internal complaints that it had been kept secret from them, The Intercept has learned.

>The internal rift over the system has had massive ramifications, effectively ending work on the censored search engine, known as Dragonfly, according to two sources familiar with the plans. The incident represents a major blow to top Google executives, including CEO Sundar Pichai, who have over the last two years made the China project one of their main priorities.

>The dispute began in mid-August, when the The Intercept revealed that Google employees working on Dragonfly had been using a Beijing-based website to help develop blacklists for the censored search engine, which was designed to block out broad categories of information related to democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest, in accordance with strict rules on censorship in China that are enforced by the country’s authoritarian Communist Party government.

>The Beijing-based website, 265.com, is a Chinese-language web directory service that claims to be “China’s most used homepage.” Google purchased the site in 2008 from Cai Wensheng, a billionaire Chinese entrepreneur. 265.com provides its Chinese visitors with news updates, information about financial markets, horoscopes, and advertisements for cheap flights and hotels. It also has a function that allows people to search for websites, images, and videos. However, search queries entered on 265.com are redirected to Baidu, the most popular search engine in China and Google’s main competitor in the country. As The Intercept reported in August, it appears that Google has used 265.com as a honeypot for market research, storing information about Chinese users’ searches before sending them along to Baidu.

This. They wouldn't just stop


I don't see anything wrong with Google collaborating with Chinese to develop a massively censored search engine. From what I read, China employs about ~40,000 people to monitor and report content to be filtered from the heavily censored Chinese internet. Google wouldn't be able to launch an uncensored version of their search engine in China, but I'm pretty sure that they didn't launch in anywhere else in the world either, at least after the point they became relevant.

Either way, all Google owned domains are blacklisted and outright blocked even before coming in contact with any electronic device within my household. I have a personal Great Firewall against (((them))) too. Jews can play their game somewhere else.

How is "learn to code" a meme? I studied computer science and now I'm a software developer. It's a good career. And even if you don't do it for a living, it's a fun hobby. It's not that hard to learn full stack development.

Are people seriously trying to imply that coding is a bad thing? Or that it's too hard? What the hell? Are people really this lazy and dumb?

So normies simultaneously think they're better than us, and yet admit that they can't do what we do. Hmmm...


"coding" is easy. You could even teach a retard to be a "coder." Just send them to a bootcamp and then have them do some artsy retard work like webdev.



You're retarded, bootcamps never work. At most it's experience a starbucks employee might put on their resume.



I imagine they "get something working" by calling lots of prebuilt routines? I did a silly coursera Machine learning course (free) and it was quite like that. Most of the exercises involved hooking in to a prewritten database to create the illusion of great productivity.

File: 907eea3a215ce7e⋯.jpg (13.75 KB, 700x525, 4:3, Huawei.jpg)


Can anyone confirm that Huawei poses any additional security risks to individual users other than the narrative that (((they))) are pushing?

I have just been listening to some (((political discussion))) on Chinese Technology -

https://endchan.xyz/.media/7c59f0b78524dc6279d2c0c580d60b7d-audiompeg.mp3 -

and one of the things they spoke about was Huawei.

The current meme that (((they))) are pushing is that Huawei poses a security risk.

Let me point out though that what Huawei is being accused of, are the same things that the NSA has been doing as was pointed out in Edward Snowden's leaks.

I also think about the idea that there is an unspoken but obvious Technology Trade War between China and the U.S..

(((Them))) making statements and pushing the idea of, "Chinese Tech Is A Security Risk," and "Huawei is controlled by the Chinese Government," makes people paranoid and causes them to not buy Huawei products.

With the advent of 5G coming, (((they))) want us to believe that the chinks want to spy on ordinary citizens.

(((They))) don't want Chinese Tech Companies to make money causing (((them))) to lose market dominance.

And, (((who))) said there is no Trade War?

But, with all that commentary, you can see why I think that, "Huawei is bad," is bullshit.

Please confirm.

You can't know. Same for any other product. Being realistic you should assume every electronic you own is bugged, but most of it won't be activated on you since you're not important enough to risk detection.


You can visit China even if you bring with you books on all these topics (they may confiscate them though). Chinks are pretty clever with their censorship, they don't care what foreigners can access and even have different filters for different parts of the country.

GNU works with the Hurd and different kernels of BSD systems, it doesn't need Linux.

Is it clear now?



Android is BSD/googlepatched-linux_with a twist so it just runs lk during boot and doesn't violate gpl



>GNU doesn't work without Linux, so it's Linux.

GNU can work with other kernels, and Linux can work with other userland. Neither GNU nor Linux can work on their own, so neither is a complete operating system. GNU/Linux is the bare minimum to get a functional operating system.


This thread is just a Wine damage control. It was fucking garbage in 3 and it's the same in 4. Why do you need vulkan support on Linux the main beneficiary of it. Why not have it before? Garbage.



GNU can actually work in some places without Linux. Just because yours doesn't doesn't change the fact that GNU works. Linux can work without GNU but a system with just Linux alone doesn't achieve very much. Android's Linux fork still remains Linux because the main character is still Linux with other bits attached.

Interesting numbers on the usage for Rust in Firefox from Nov 1st 2017 to Nov 1st 2018:

Rust usage by lines of code has gone up from 3.7% to 6.24%.

We now have a total of 405,379 lines of Rust vs 6,091,861 lines of C/C++.

More interestingly at this point the amount of Rust has increased by 172,839 lines of code vs 38,241 for C/C++. This is the cumulative amount of additions and removals over the last year. For a large part of the year C++ was trending down.

So at this point we've added 4.5X as much Rust as C/C++ over the past year! Note: this number is volatile as we tend to add large chunks of code on both sides (think WebRTC, WebRender, etc). Overall it looks like we're trending towards adding more Rust and removing more C++

What is it?

Advent of code's a programming advent calendar. 2 problems a day for every day of advent, you paste the output data into a text box. You need to register via one of a few 3rd-party websites, because there's a leaderboard: first person to complete a day's challenges get 100 points to his total, second 99, so on. If I remember correctly, someone from 4chan came first last year, but don't quote me on that.

The site's a bit cancerous, especially the sign-up thing, but it's still pretty fun. Try out a new language, or have some fun getting back to basics with one you already know.

I'll be doing it in C, with a little helper library for quickly reading files. How about you, anon?
