It's best to aim slightly under the limit as depending what you're doing you can find when you aim for 16Mb the file ends up at 16.7Mb and is too large.

Also, if the video is the maximum size you can't upload additional media in the same post, since the upload limit is per post.

Brainlet gamer here is risc-v a viable alternative to x86?

>You are literally saying that most consumers don't need systems with more than 65KiB of address space when even PCIe devices consume 4KiB just for their configuration BAR.

Yes that is exactly what I am saying. Unless you are going to be doing video gaming or an equivelent such as graphics renderering for videos then you don't need more then 16bit for text/document editing, web browsing, and song/video watching. This is assuming near perfectly optimized software and or perfectly optimized. If you want an example look at DOS and windows 98, and those were incredibly unoptimized peices of shitware compared to what they could have been. You don't need pci-e with the integrated audio chips of today and SATA controllers on board. You don't need USB or a MMU unless you are a insecure faggot. If you have large collections of videos and audio you might need 32bit like a server to adress them. But most normalfags don't as they steam it all.



A single-buffered 4k frame requires 6.63MiB of VRAM, even a hi-color 480p frame needs 614KiB. For comparison, the Apple IIɢꜱ maxed out at a 4-bit 640x200 mode that consumed exactly 64KiB.



>DDR4 will be ancient by 2030

Memory isn't going to magically become ~9 orders of magnitude more dense. Just because DDR4 will be gone doesn't mean what will replace it will be significantly more dense. Even if we reduce each DRAM cell down to 1nm (which means each cell is only about 10 atoms wide) that's still only about a 200x increase in density from what we have today which barely puts us over the 48bit space per node for the highest tier systems.


>And yet here we are today, with storage in some companies already in Exabyte territory.

Storage addressing isn't the same as system memory addressing, modern filesystems already support sizes so big that you would need a pile of harddrives with something on the order of 1/4 the mass of the earth to fill up.


>You don't need pci-e with the integrated audio chips of today and SATA controllers on board.

Protip: Those are all memory mapped just like PCIe.



>A single-buffered 4k frame requires 6.63MiB of VRAM


4k has roughly 8 million pixels which at 4 bytes per pixel gives you about 32 megabytes of storage. Or am I being a brainlet?



He specifically said single buffering, which is where you only have part of the screen rendered at a time and while that part is being sent to the screen you are rendering the next part. Its more memory efficient and lower latency than rendering the entire screen at once but can introduce tearing.

How far can you push open source licenses before people just leave and abandon the entire concept?

I was browsing piracy software earlier and came across this gem for a Switch game key downloader.

>Permission to use, copy, modify, and/or distribute this software for any purpose with or without fee is hereby granted, provided that the above copyright notice and this permission notice appear in all copies; and that the user/copier/modifier/distributor supports the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and asexual people.

Is this the future of open source where licenses will become political grand stands who they use to legally punish any one who steps out of line from the SJW sphere?

>I tried to install GlovePIE on my machine but GlovePIE rejected my machine because it is located in Israel.



Funny, this came out a day or two ago, with some other retarded FOSS project adding a blacklist of companies, and then quickly changing it back.

Depends but if you're submerged in an environment, you start to share those values unless your own beliefs are exceptionally strong. It starts from holding your tongue in order to not offend a friend or coworker, then creeps in and poisons your entire worldview. It's why pockets such as SanFran are full of these drones - they're insulated.

Note this applies to anything else, not just regressive leftist political cult. It's how humans work.

This, you can write terrible code in any language, as well as overengineer and bloat everything to hell. The problem with current year internet certainly isn't that Javascript doesn't have an int datatype, or its retarded behavior on arrays, objects and strings in edge cases.

As for the moronic userbase, the same would be true for any other non-statically typed, high level, low barrier to entry language.


Why shouldn't we make free software so easy to use, comparable to Apple products for example? Why don't we ship desktop environments with pre-compiled icons and customizations that actually looks good? Why don't we make GUIs for advanced anonymization software, a resurrected Vidalia for using Tor with other applications (e.g. Thunderbird, IRC, apt) or click-and-play I2P interface with pre-built browser like Tor Browser, or even maybe (fire)jailing applications by default like Android and iOS? I think this will muddy the waters so much that it will be pretty hard to differentiate between actually paranoid users (which needs to be on a list) and curious people who are simply experimenting (which makes previously mentioned list useless). What are your thoughts on this?

If your idle power is that high then something's wrong with your idle states, does your CPU drop frequences at all?



i think it's just the chipset

The cpu only goes as low as 1400-1500mhz on the 2400G as well

This is measuring from the wall socket too, not from some thing you can't trust inside the operating system



>This is measuring from the wall socket too

If you're measuring from wall socket, you have to take into account that your PSU is most likely operating at some ridiculously low efficiency. Even 80+ titanium rating only measures starting at 10% load.



This is why I will probably never buy a desktop pc again. I currently use a sandybridge laptop that idles at below 10 watts and that's including the screen. There's no way a desktop pc can achieve this, but I'd love to be proven wrong.

File: 34104526ba5ee63⋯.png (284.32 KB, 512x512, 1:1, world database.png)


Due to the unreliable nature of information on the Internet I've been thinking about something that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere: a decentralized universal database of everything. Is there a project attempting to do such a thing?

The idea here is to fill it with data from all around. It will not be a Wikipedia though it will surely link to it quite a lot. If a datapoint (say, a URL or an article) has conflicting versions then all of those can be collected but the validation system will ensure noone can really store and have propagated to the nodes a fake quote about someone.

Basically the tenets would be along these lines:

* Mostly decentralized with some servers acting as coordinators to reduce the amount of spam/crap. If those main servers go down the network can still function.

* Many UIs both native and web easy enough for normies not to fuck up anything other than the info they pump into the DB.

* A system of reviews/validation in which all the community can rate the trustfulness of the data.

* Sharding all the DB in managable chunks. Nodes can choose how many GB of data they want to store and how much bandwidth they're willing to provide.

* Maybe use blockchain to validate new blocks of data ingested into the system.

* Hashes of all media stored on it or referenced to it.

* Autochecks for major websites. A stored tweet will automatically get compared to the one stored on Twitter's servers. Same for Facebook, Youtube, Wikipedia, etc.

Anyway, I hope you get the gist of it. Of course I'm already running into many problems such as my lack of knowledge in databases and the time it will require to create all this (not to mention that I'm almost a pajeet in programming proficiency). Scalability is also a huge issue that I have no clue how to overcome.

"Cocksucking For Retards"

<inb4 "white knight", I'll use your ass as my spoils of war faggot

OP, check out https://archive.org/ too, they've probably already asked and answered some of your same questions.



I guess they first need to implement the Internet Archive to IPFS thingie: https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=INTERNETARCHIVE.BAK

For the time being I think I'll focus on hydrus. It has a lot of what I want even if currently buggy or feature incomplete. Its dev also updates it a more than reasonable pace, which is great.



There's a project called "tauchain" that approximates what you are aiming at. It's not just data, but logic. It uses blockchain for consensus and to incentivize its population. I haven't checked the status of the project in years, but a quick google search shows that its been rolled into one of those generic crypto coin ICO-style websites.



Even a few years ago I saw multiple projects based around donating your node to a collective for implicit distribution. IPFS nodes are easy to control and have multiple methods of connecting peers directly or via pubsub groups, publicly via the dht and privately via libp2p sockets.

You could easily build a Freenet style distribution system around IPFS and its pubsub system.

Publish a stream of hashes with low peercounts, have nodes subscribe to this and do some evaluation to determine if they should store it themselves. Most likely based around local metrics.

>new hash posted

>locally resolve peercount, if it's low proceed

>do geoip resolution on peers to see if it would be worth storing in this region, distribute evenly globally

Or really you could do it however you wanted.

I have a feeling that people are going to fork the filecoin project for this purpose. It would give you everything you need to coordinate storing, and verifying that data is actually being stored and distributed, but you could remove the tokens/cost and have your own metrics around choosing nodes (instead of cheapest bidder).

I also got one of these, but all the flashing instructions are outdated and badly translated from Russian, plus all the ROMs are static handmade binaries only available from shady forums.

Coming from the PPC Linux ecosystem, and hearing hype about how easy RPi is, I'm astonished at how slipshod the broader ARM SBC Linux scene is. I'm astonished something as simple as Open Firmware or EFI doesn't exist, on either SBCs, nor Android phones.

Also, super cheesed off at the fact that ARM SBCs with MSRPs of $5-$10 have street prices hovering in the $15-$50 range.

Of course you can. Those remotes are all the same and work with LED strips as well. If you use standard IR remotes for other electronics have it could interfere with the lightbulbs though.


They're fine if you live in a small appartment and have tons of light fixtures and lamps to bounce the spot lights around. In a bigger area they're no good.


Assuming they're indoor plants I'd just get one of these I've heard good things about them. Instead of watering each plant you just plug these into a giant bucket full of water and fill it every month. The water wicks in depending on how moist the soil is so it's automatic.
