What's /tech/ies' opinion on JCL?

This. There are actually quite a few old farts who are paid 100's of thousands a year to mainframe old government computers.



Because it's somewhat related to technology, you know.

e-celeb drama is not technology




You're right:

It's Huxley for the upper part of society (high middle class), and it's Orwell for the very low part of society (the "proles").

And communism/capitalism will fusion too. Some kind of anarcho-communism weird mix.



Don't forget a bit of Bradbury too.

>"Now let's take up the minorities in our civilization, shall we? Bigger the population, the more minorities. Don't step on the toes of the dog-lovers, the cat-lovers, doctors, lawyers, merchants, chiefs, Mormons, Baptists, Unitarians, second-generation Chinese, Swedes, Italians, Germans, Texans, Brooklynites, Irishmen, people from Oregon or Mexico. The people in this book, this play, this TV serial are not meant to represent any actual painters, cartographers, mechanics anywhere. The bigger your market, Montag, the less you handle controversy, remember that! All the minor minor minorities with their navels to be kept clean. Authors, full of evil thoughts, lock up your typewriters. They did. Magazines became a nice blend of vanilla tapioca. Books, so the damned snobbish critics said, were dishwater. No wonder books stopped selling, the critics said. But the public, knowing what it wanted, spinning happily, let the comic-books survive. And the three-dimensional sex-magazines, of course. There you have it, Montag. It didn't come from the Government down. There was no dictum, no declaration, no censorship, to start with, no! Technology, mass exploitation, and minority pressure carried the trick, thank God. Today, thanks to them, you can stay happy all the time, you are allowed to read comics, the good old confessions, or trade-journals."

>Cool. I need to create a page that displays the latest activity from the users, so I just need to get the data from the REST endpoint and display it in some sort of filterable table, and update it if anything changes in the server. I was thinking maybe using jQuery to fetch and display the data?

<-Oh my god no, no one uses jQuery anymore. You should try learning React, it’s 2016.

>Oh, OK. What’s React?

<-It’s a super cool library made by some guys at Facebook, it really brings control and performance to your application, by allowing you to handle any view changes very easily.

>That sounds neat. Can I use React to display data from the server?

<-Yeah, but first you need to add React and React DOM as a library in your webpage.

>Wait, why two libraries?

<-So one is the actual library and the second one is for manipulating the DOM, which now you can describe in JSX.

>JSX? What is JSX?

<-JSX is just a JavaScript syntax extension that looks pretty much like XML. It’s kind of another way to describe the DOM, think of it as a better HTML.

lol I just got a flashforward of some insufferable retards making minimal webpages.


File: 0e8371330be24a8⋯.png (88.16 KB, 834x642, 139:107, WorldWideWeb.1.png)


That sounds a lot more like the typical programmer or sysadmin MO than a human factors engineer or tech writer to me.


I would put the downfall much earlier, to when the viewer and WYSIWYG editor functions separated in 3rd-party "browsers", turning the web from the hypertext version of normal documents it was originally conceived as, into a read-only antiquarian markup format hacked together by hand in text editors by subhumans.



Actually what happens is

>Hire someone to make a GUI for a product with XYZ features

>They do so

>Six months later company wants to add ABC features

>The previous UI was poorly thought up and doesn't extend well

>Have to redo work to support new features and them them consistent

And is no different than picking up a code base that some retard half assed before you were forced to work on it.



>read-only antiquarian markup format

At this point, it's write only



Another cause for added complexity is that smart people look for abstractions, and extract patterns in the way they develop things. This does have the effect of making them more productive, but the very nasty side-effect of lowering the barrier of entry to many who should not be programming in the first place. For example, if we look at old jQuery, I'm sure the creator was reasonably talented. Little did he realize, that what probably made him productive was a pure form of cancer. Fast forward a decade, and his cancer looks rather innocuous to the mess it has metastasized into these days.

isnt that for GTK shit? GTK is deprecated since Qt is the future


When my internet is working again and I don't have to tether through a phone with 6kB/s max. anymore, I wanted to add some .png icons to my in-construction fvwm config - is there some good place where I could start looking for that? It's looking a bit like a cheap CDE copy right now, so it doesn't have to be fancy. I know .png works, but haven't looked into other compatible formats yet.




It's like somebody left all the icons out in the sun all day and they lost their color.

I've been looking for cheap Chinese Bluetooth heart rate monitors, I want to read the raw data and translate it to CSV, or alternatively have an app that allows me to export the data in some common format such as xml. So far I only found models with a lot of extra functionalities such as SMSnotifications and generally some kind of integration with Android phones which should make for a complicated protocol (over Bluetooth) which in turn would be time consuming to reverse engineer. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this?



>I've been looking for cheap Chinese Bluetooth/Girlfriend

I've found people seem to have a phobia of gotos. Even in situations where they would make the code more elegant, they're avoided.

Now there's a way how to remove 90% of ME module, How about removing the PSP module in AMD board. Obviously disabling the PSP functionality from bios is not the solution. Any board hackers here found out how to remove the PSP botnet?



>Now there's a way how to remove 90% of ME module

Depends on the hardware.

On more recent hardware there's no real solution to really deactivate it before boot, the only known solution is using some found function that the CIA asked to deactivate the ME but AFTER the ME activation.

There's no solution anon we need to buy hardware that can be controlled and the only one that I know is the TALOS 2.

>How about removing the PSP module in AMD board.

The PSP is a ARM chip on the cpu die.



It is basically impossible to remove the Intel ME on newer CPUs beyond core 2 because the firmware is signed and Intel has the key. They can't release it because of deals with other businesses and such.

Bottom line: Libreboot, Coreboot, or Talos II are your best bet when it comes to freedom in your computing.

No, I hate people. This is why im in tech.

Looking up to 'idols' is for cattle.



Woz's earlier days are inspiring. The guy built the first release of one of the most popular early home computers from scratch. The Apple 1 is a nerd legend. He is a hero to me, even if his Woz U is sketch as fuck.


Torvalds not only developed and maintans the greatest anti-corporate OS but has an attitude to boot. I like him.


Carmack is the quintessential engineer. I hope his space efforts are fruitful someday. I like him as well.


They are still around, though many of them ether went to the dark side or are on the dark side. One name that is big in those circles is a hero of mine.


Isn't he more anti-/tech/ than tech? Not really a hero of mine but definitely an interesting guy with some sadly prophetic things to say.


Oh fuck yes Terry is a hero of mine. A literal madman who built his own OS through the sheer power of determination, autism, and madness. I hope he finds his way out of the streets and back in front of a computer.


I like that he had the balls to try to make public domain, you know, public. I truly wish more people had his passion for fucking up the intellectual property crowd. I'm sure he would have given me a reason to hate him along with the rest of the reddit spergs if he lived through Gamergate but what a sad loss.

When Stallman signed my laptop the windows 7 partition on it immediately broke.



You have been blessed by St Ignucious, my child. You know what you must do now, you must defenestrate your computer for your penance of using Windows.



Mitnick and Poulsen, mainly because I grew up without a strong father figure and those con-men with their used car salesman attitudes appealed to me, for some reason. Terry is also OK in my book, a /tech/ equivalent of an outsider artist, misunderstood and shunned. Stallman is a meme by this point, but his attitude towards maintaining personal freedom is something that brings a tear to my eyes in these wretched times.

Yea, i'm sure you know all about type systems. You are a smart one. Rust is the absolute limit of engineering and mathematics. Deciding that a list is type and memory safe is something that computer languages just cannot do. No other languages can do that.



like what?



Like plugging in a custom allocator just for that instance of the data type at runtime.



Alright just add a allocator field of type alloc::allocator::Alloc to the LinkedList struct and then instead of using Box::new to allocate nodes use the alloc_one function of the allocator. This should add only a few lines of code.

What else justifies the unreasonably convoluted C++ version?



>just add a allocator field of type alloc::allocator::Alloc to the LinkedList struct

Look these things add up. The CPP version has sort, merge, reverse, etc. Not to mention tons of extra definition info to make tracing the operation of the STL library based on compile options. The CPP version is also more optimized and has multiple ways to copy data around. Sometimes you want copies, sometimes you want references (not pointers), sometimes you want to do a memory swap, all for different cases.
