He's probably talking about Slackware. The only way I could imagine him claiming Portage being bad at dependency resolution is if he were just throwing out false accusations to be inflammatory. Everyone knows that Portage is one of the stronger package managers in the Ganoo/Linux world.

how do i emerge shitloads of things at once so when I wake up my frehsly installed gentoo has all my usual software?



Do whatever the manual says, then read this entire page and set each variable as needed:



MAKEOPTS="-j32 -l32"

EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--jobs=32 --load-average=32 --keep-going"

I'm sure there are more tricks, but this is what I use. Stuff always fails for me and requires masking and whatnot. There is also the jumbo file trick, on the forum, for emerging chromium faster on shitty PCs.


Oh, if you're wondering, emerge takes a list of atoms, not a single atom. Everything is lists or recursing folders of files. I'm sure you can use a file input somehow, too.

I believe you can also add atoms to the world favorites file, then 'emerge -uDNa @world'. I think I've replaced world and edited it manually, like a bad person. There's also a fetch only option if you only want to download packages. There must be a way to more aggressively fetch packages because it takes forever fetching when the particular job comes up.

Besides you can unplug yourself more from the system if you combine low power tools with solar panels.

Looking for your first programming language, or some help with SICP, or lisp in general? This is the thread for you.

>why learn scheme

Scheme is the ultimate language to learn or advance your programming on account of the trumendous ammount of resources available for learning the language and the core concepts of most languages. It also has a exceedingly simple syntax which allows you to jump into higher level conscepts quickly without having to drudge through the significant amounts of brute memorization that most languages have. Whether you're a rustfag or a expendable java code monkeys based scheme can help you improve your programming by introducing you to new paradimes aswell.

I've not seen the Berkley lectures but I really like the Sussman lectures so if they are roughly equal you can't go wrong. Just pick one and get started :)



I'm going through Sussman, but have often heard Berkley's are better.



Not the same anon but try giving meaningful names to your variables and procedures.

It doesn't cost anything and it'll make your code more readable



I only do this in scheme, I'm not sure why, I guess because it feels mathy. I'll fix it.


I wouldn't worry about it tbh, if you're already working through one you should probably stick with it.



I'm just interested to see if anyone has an opinion on it, I'll likely utilize it down the road at some point as some sort of review and come to my own conclusion then.

There's been some talk for a while now about the idea of putting together a properly distributed imageboard, and there have been some efforts made towards that end. However, in my view the current efforts still have a number of weak points that leave them vulnerable to targeted attacks knocking them offline. NNTPchan for instance is cool, but the way it's put together DDoSing a (relatively) small number of nodes is still sufficient to take the federation down.

For the past year now I have been slowly working on an IPFS-based federated imageboard software package. It's still in a very early state, and I was hoping to let it sit until IPFS developed a little more, but recent events have made it clear that the noose is already starting to tighten now so out the door it goes.

Github: https://github.com/smugdev/smugboard

Working instance: http://localhost:8080/ipns/client.smugchan.org/#Qmf9QKURJVU53mzmysAFAR3mj48dLXqS2rNpq2o41EugcV/tech

(You need a running go-ipfs daemon set up as per https://github.com/smugdev/smugboard#usage to actually access it)

This is Smugboard, an imageboard package with a fully distributed content layer and a maximally decentralized control layer. It is composed of 5 separate server packages handling different aspects of posting and moderation, and a client-side renderer. Each thread and board takes the form of an append-only log hosted via IPFS, with moderation taking the form of a client-side filter. Users can choose to toggle specific mods on or off (soon - UI not yet complete).

As noted the federation is composed of a series of append-only logs, and these are published directly within IPFS. A proper UI for this isn't done yet, but it will be possible to fork any board or thread from its current state, or from any previous state, at any time. In the event of a board goiPost too long.

Progress on this is directly proportional to the chance that 8chan goes down in the next couple days. The dev is busy watching anime the rest of the time.

This is accurate. Incidentally, my favorite show this season is Sora Yori, it's something special. Progress isn't at a complete standstill though, I actually got the in-browser server system totally working recently. The only thing left there is the UI, which is currently stalled because I hate writing UIs. It'll get done eventually, though psychologically the main killer right now is that js-ipfs isn't ready yet and I don't feel a major desire to push ahead when the project is still fundamentally uncompletable. If 8ch was about to go down I'd go all-out on it again though, so probably your best bet for immediate, substantial progress is to try taking down 8ch.

You knew this was coming. I stopped using Arch early 2017 and switched to Gentoo and GuixSD because of that blatant BS from Arch.

And besides, it turns out the memers were right; Gentoo is way more /comfy/




>literally using a google OS




It's true that ChromiumOS is built using the Gentoo package manager, but it doesn't use the actually Portage tree and doesn't ship with any Gentoo utilities, either. ChromiumOS uses Upstart as its init.

The main cause of the restriction of personal rights in the modern era is compensation for technological advancement and avaliability of information, more specifically the increased potential influence of the individual. If you lived before telecommunications existed (and especially before the invention of the printing press and the post) you basically had no idea how to do anything (other than the obvious: sowing crops, tending to crops, harvesting crops, etc.) without acquiring an apprenticeship, assuming you weren't a part of the nobility or aristocracy. Information had a much higher price per unit, and because you're a un-specialized feudal serf, you could neither afford it nor care about it, and doubly so you probably wouldn't have the money or access to the proper resources to use it correctly. Cut to today, where you could conceivably design a bomb (thanks to the numerous references avaliable online or at your local library) build it (thanks to the now-relatively wide selections of substances offered by supermarkets and online websites) and mail it to someone discreetly. Let's take this a step further. If you had the money, and there were no laws prohibiting you, how hard would it be to build an atomic bomb in your own house by yourself? I don't think it would be naive to say that you could theoretically complete a design within a few days and have the proper materials within a few weeks. Now, imagine you had to do this a few centuries ago. No matter how much money or immunity you had, you would still have to INVENT the bomb yourself due to lack of information, and then SOURCE things yourself due to lack of suppliers. (who is selling 1.32 moles of isotope-z in 1642?) The minimum cost and effort required would far exceed what is required for an individual today.

For a more mild example, how easy would it be for a single individual to perpetuate "harmful" (society-destabling) information? With our global meme networks (social media) and knowledge of human psychology, a task like this would be considered trivial.

As technology, commerce, and technique grow more powerful, so does the individual - a kind of more lethargic, fatalistic Moore's law. One man can kill hundreds with a small portion of his salary and a squeeze of a trigger. The same man can kill millions with a few dozen salaries and the tap of a button.

Learn to crop ya goof



Some of that stuff is very believable but it's mostly


If you believe in a single ((("power that is"))) entity there's an amount of attributed power and competency you have to give the conspiracy so it actually makes sense. Just like how it wouldn't follow that retards are pulling the strings behind everything (because otherwise hoe could they be so effective) it wouldn't make sense that superhuman godlike entities are behind everything (because otherwise how could they be so ineffective). If you really think about it, the most realistic thing happening is that "the conspiracy" is probably run by a group of people only a few standard deviations above the normal person in terms of IQ, and the tech they have access to is probably at most half to a full decade in front of the curve. Not too powerful or smart otherwise we wouldn't be seeing the massive disruptions and inconsistencies in "the agenda", but not too dumb or impotent otherwise the general population would have already found out.



smells like FUD



Yeah, mostly. I don't think it's intentional on the part of the capped poster though, likely just the misinterpretation of data.



>The main cause of the restriction of personal rights in the modern era is compensation for technological advancement and avaliability of information

Nah. The restrictions really only started to crop up post-9/11, and that wasn't caused by technological advancement, that was caused by muslims and the people that let them in.

>One man can kill hundreds with a small portion of his salary and a squeeze of a trigger

Evidently untrue. Shooters are good when they get into the double-digits, let alone triple.

>She's credited with writing the first algorithm.

Yes, for Babbage's machine, which makes no sense for the reason you conveniently ignored. The only scenario where it's possible Ada was first is if Babbage 1) never tried to write a single algorithm before inventing the analytical engine, which would mean he was stupid and 2) built a time machine and went 6 years back in time to steal her code since Babbage published in 1836 and Ada only in 1842.


I'm not diminishing her accomplishments, you're the one making her accomplishments seem greater than they really were. She was easy to bed, she could translate scientific texts, and she wasn't stupid, but the first programmer she was not.


Ada wasn't a fraud, she never lied about it. The lies about her are recent.



Theoretical CS is a true discipline of math. Applied CS is extremely broad because there are so many applications of the study of computation to all kinds of subjects.

Never understood the hype for Mint. Ubuntu already fills the "linux for retards" niche, only it does it competently and actually works out of the box.



As I understand Mint, they based the distro on having a windows-like start menu.



yep. After Ubuntu switched to unity, Mint was fairly successfully sold as the most Windows-like Linux. Cinnamon and their way of organising Mate played to all that.

I would never suggest mainline Ubuntu to a Windows users trying out Linux. Interface is too alien.

Emacs dropped the minor version around 1.2. It went from something like 1.2 to 13. Version 16 is just 1.6.

(They seem to have dropped this versioning system in early 2000s, but they've recently picked it back up)
