this idea of mine has been floating around for a while, I have doubts on how well this will be received but I'll be glad if you guys like it.

.

Premise

LibbieOS, AKA "Libbie - The Free Virtual Assistant", is a linux distro designed to work as a free alternative to Siri/Cortana/Alexa. No need to worry about government snoops or corporate stooges watching you at every turn, Libbie does what you ask of her and doesn't need to hide anything from you!

Purpose

The purpose of this distro is to provide a small operating system for embedded devices to function as a free replacement to Alexa. LibbieOS has a series of scripts that can be inputted through voice commands or text terminals to do various functions for whatever you want.

LibbieOS is based on Gentoo Linux, and can be tailored for your needs the way you want it to be.

Example Commands


Libbie
run <Program>
play_music
volume <number or command>
get_the_weather
search "<query>"
remind_me_about <date> <time>
set_alarm_for <date> <time>
read_mail
help <subject>
turn_off_microphone
<etc>

Author's Notes

I have far too many neat ideas, too little time, and burn out on motivation. Besides, this idea was way too fun to keep holed up in my head, and I wanted to share this with you guys.

by the way, "normal" is relative.

You can get a used computer for free, and spare parts as well. It can't get cheaper than that. Well, unless someone pays you to take their computer, then it's technically cheaper. At this point in time, hardware from a decade ago can be enough for almost any purpose. You can build a pretty damn good computer and not spend any money at all, and all parts are easily replaceable because people are constantly throwing away shit that still works. This is one of the only good things about living in the dystopian future. Take advantage of that if you can.

Google is now messing so much with the search results that it has become unusable. You can basically no longer find any controversial information, or if you find it, it's like result 7, or even on page 2, when it should be the first result considering the search terms. They are no longer anywhere near a search engine, they are more like a purveyor of politically correct information.

What are some good alternatives? I never liked the way DuckDuckGo presents search results and I've heard some dubious things about their owners. Startpage used to be an alternative but they're just an anonymized google so that won't work any longer.

Do you think P = NP? Why or why not?

For those who aren't aware:

P means polynomial time. Essentially, problems that are both easy to check and easy to solve. x + 1 = 5.

NP means nondeterministic polynomial time. Long story short, if you have the solution, these problems are easy to verify. But if you don't, then they aren't. They are easy to check, but not easy to solve. Example: if someone gives you a filled out sudoku, you can check to see if it's valid or not. But it's harder to solve a blank sudoku, because that requires solving and checking it. A tripcode is an example of a supposedly one-way function which is, in theory, harder to crack than it is to make/check. But only if you're doing brute-forcing rather than finding a way to crack the algorithm itself.

So why does this matter? Information security. If P = NP, everything is hackable forever and no encryption will ever be secure due to the laws of mathematics. However, many mathematicians think P ≠ NP. But I wonder if that's just wishful thinking. If P = NP, it won't matter if your FOSS software has no backdoors, because it still won't be possible to secure it even then.

The proof for P=NP might however give some clues of where to look. Besides, investing ressources into the search for an algorithm wouldn't be a potential waste anymore.


 No.1000559

>>1000008

It would be far easier to prove P=NP, if that's true, than it is to prove P ≠ NP, if that's true .

The hypothetical proof of P=NP would be constructive. You have a lock, you find a key that opens the lock.

By contrast, a proof of P ≠ NP would not be constructive . You have to prove that the lock is unbreakable.

The fact that we still can't find a P-algorithm for any NP-complete problem after all this time adds to the case that P probably isn't equal to NP. A proof would still be nice tough.

>>997961

Actually, proving a fast algorithm exists gives you an method to compute it. This isn't set-theory voodoo where you make use of non-constructive axioms. The method itself may be incredibly complex, but it's a matter of time, not existence. The most basic proof a fast algorithm exists is to build it.

This isn't the extent of an explanation. Let's say you were going to send in base 8. You can send 3 bits of information per digit. So to send information at the same rate, you should send a given digit for three times as long. Since you're sending it for longer, it will be less likely to get mixed up. But since different values are assigned more similar voltages, it will be easier to get mixed up. I would naively assume that the two would perfectly balance out.

>>988324

I've always wondered this. It's well known that the most efficient search is the ternary search, because 3 is the maximum of log(n)/n. It follows that a similar result would apply to sending data over a wire.

We are launching an initiative in the field of informatics for which I asked for a logo. Our graphic designer took care of it and indeed showed me a very nice logo, where a man with a hammer in one hand is standing on a background of the Earth where many links are connecting people.

The man is clearly “resolute” and “hard-working for all of us”. I like it. But that man is very clearly a white man, and may be from the North of Europe or the North America, that's impossible to doubt even if it is simply painted.

I like the logo very much, but I have doubts about the man. I'm afraid that such a representation may seem offending or whatever to some people if we choose a white male as the symbol for a worldwide operating service.

Moreover, we do not have the possibility to personalize the logo on a regional basis: the same logo is for all the world.

How can I avoid the logo being perceived as unfair or racist or whatever?

Here it is the draft logo

System error: Japan cybersecurity minister admits he has never used a computer

Yoshitaka Sakurada also seemed confused by the concept of a USB drive when asked in parliament

15 Nov 2018

“It’s unbelievable that someone who has not touched computers is responsible for cybersecurity policies,” said opposition lawmaker Masato Imai.

And his comments provoked a firestorm online.

“Doesn’t he feel ashamed?” wrote one Twitter user.

“Today any company president uses a PC. He doesn’t even know what a USB is. Holy cow.”

Another joked that perhaps Sakurada was simply engaged in his own kind of cybersecurity.

“If a hacker targets this Minister Sakurada, they wouldn’t be able to steal any information. Indeed it might be the strongest kind of security!”

Why is the Unix philosophy of small, general-purpose tools you creatively string together with pipes and shellshit completely abandoned whenever people design graphical software and toolkits? It's like we forget everything that makes Unix good the moment we look beyond the shell and just copy whatever Windows and the other graphical OSes are doing.

One way of fixing this is abandoning the one window == one program idea and giving graphical programs some STDIN/STDOUT + pipes equivalent. We could break down software suites into smaller, independent programs and let users create their own workflows with these tools by dragging multiple programs into a window-like container, then connecting their STDIN/STDOUT equivalents with whatever the graphical version of pipes is. As an example, an image editing suite could be a collection of smaller programs sending their output to an image viewing program which takes input, sends its output to programs which request it (for example, filtering software), and maybe handles stuff like undoing and redoing.

An advantage of this approach is that we could solve many software suites' architectural, scalability, and responsiveness problems by breaking them down into smaller components and handing them off to the OS' process/threading model. It's also much closer to both the terminal workflow and most real-world workflows, where people prefer using small, general-purpose tools together in creative ways over monolithic and complicated single-purpose machines. The downside is that you'd need a really good process model, along with a new GUI toolkit and maybe a new display server. There are already suites like Blender which try creating what I've described within the confines of their program, but they all implement this differently and this experience never carries over to the rest of the OS.

So what do you fags think?

A software library is a library of software functions. When you have multiple libraries that are conglomerated to form a big cohesive library spanning a wide range of general software functionality, this situation is often referred to as a software platform. It is very normal for programmers to target specific software platforms rather than to recreate a targeted subset of what a software platform provides. When your software targets the X11 protocol, that is a design choice that the programmer makes. If the team decides for the program to target the Wayland platform, that will take significant effort. However, I would bet that this effort is smaller compared to the effort required to independently implement the tiny subset of needed functions that are offered by the X11 platform or the Wayland platform.

As someone writing software, you are interested in minimizing the amount of work you have to do. That's why you probably prefer writing webapps over real applications. As a user, I prefer software that uses familiar idioms, and integrates with the rest of my OS, so that it minimizes work for me. As such, I prefer software that is a library first and foremost, which works completely independent of the OS, then has a layer of UI code surrounding it to help me get my work done. Besides allowing for the application to be ported between OSes, this allows someone to consume the library directly in their programs. They could even write their own custom ui.

Sure, because most programs don't have the requirements an IDE is expected to offer nowadays.

If my game has a tiny difference in chat text formatting between Linux and Windows, that's unlikely to even be noticed, while an IDE formatting text differently on different systems could be a big source of headaches.

Combine that with the extreme portability demands, and forking your own solutions starts to sound good.

>>999668

>That's why you probably prefer writing webapps over real applications.

I can't say writing webapps is a pleasant experience, especially since performance requirements bite you in the ass as soon as you try to do anything interesting with them.

>As such, I prefer software that is a library first and foremost, which works completely independent of the OS, then has a layer of UI code surrounding it to help me get my work done.

Which is general a wonderful idea, it's so good even the most webshit IDEs follow it by having some impressive internal modularity: of course they try to lock down user-facing modularity so they can jew you out of money for dark themes and such.

Also, I would only recommend electron to my worst enemy, and even then only if they really pissed me off, qt is pretty neat tho even if you were developing only for windows.

>How many views do you get?

I've checked the logs once in two years, so I don't know.

>Do you advertise it?

I regularly use an IRC channel and the people there are well aware of it. Someone uploaded some of my articles to Hacker News without asking, but I was curious as to the response they'd get. Not a single uploaded article received a single comment. I don't consider Hacker News to be a real hacker website, as they're not interested in much of anything in-depth. I write no articles concerning JavaScript nor Rust and so none of the hipsters seem interested.

I decided I would start showing my articles to others outside of the IRC channel I frequent so I could get a wider range of opinions. I decided I didn't want to write articles only a handful would read if I could instead advertise myself a tad and see how that went. I have some affiliate websites due to this. I obtained a lobste.rs account purely to promote myself, since that seems to be all these websites are actually good for, but my uploaded article again failed to get any comments whatsoever, leading me to regard lobste.rs with much of the same disdain I give Hacker News.

I find myself looking at pouet.net next, as my project involves machine code. I intend to, once I have my tool existing in a form convenient for others to use, advertise it on pouet.net and lobste.rs, deleting my account on the latter if it again fails to get any attention.

What I am looking for is an automated solution which will back up my files to a local hard drive that's plugged into my computer. Also, should I back up the entire machine or just my home directory? I think the home directory should be sufficient because the system itself can be just rebuilt by installing the packages again.

I would also like to have several versions of my files, so I can restore some file I deleted last week even if I have already made a new hourly backup. And of course the backup needs to be encrypted or otherwise protected somehow. Really important things like GPG keys or passwords would need to be stored somewhere off-site in addition to the local backup.

What are my options? Is there something you guys are using? Should I roll my own thing with rsync? And just to be clear, I want the functionality, I don't care about the stupid space animations of Time Machine.

No one has mentioned dar in this whole thread?

>Sorry, it arrived, your old disk has crashed. OK, you are happy because you have now a good argument to buy the very fast and very enormous very lastest hard disk available. Usually, you also cry because you have lost data and you will have to reinstall all your system, that was working so well and for so long!

Rsync and zfs if you have the space to waste with slightly inferior compression

tar and 7z if you want maximum compression but sacrifice stability

I've been looking into valid UNIX alternatives lately- not just because of the CoC shit, but because alternatives are important than general, and one of those toy operating systems that I see come up less often than I'd expect is DOS.

Aside from just ancient proprietary shit, does it have any good software? I imagine there's at least a few window managers, and maybe an extension to add 32-bit software or UTF-8 support, but there's so little conversation on it that I can barely tell.

Is FreeDOS a good desktop OS? Is it worth developing software for?

you can run microsoft space simulator: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Space_Simulator

and demos and you can do just about anything you want on it and nothing gets in the way except your imagination and hardware. also having a soundblaster makes freedos a lot more fun/useful

>DOS becomes a mess when you legitimately need more ram than that

That mess was fixed with the introduction of DPMI. Earlier programs using EMS or XMS (or, heaven forbid, manual protected-mode shenanigans) were indeed a mess.

>Luckily the newer stuff often does its own memory management

No, the newer stuff comes with a DPMI server like DOS/4GW or CWSDPMI that does its memory management when ran on bare DOS.

I'll admit that I haven't really used DOS extensively, so I don't know many of the specifics other than the 640k limit and EMS/XMS- but a few DOS applications I own that use DOS/4GW still have the need for a certain amount of free RAM under 640k. So it evidently wasn't completely solved- or at least I'm assuming so, because I don't imagine the option to create a boot disk would be necessary otherwise.

I suppose I'll be better able to mess with that once I get a motherboard and case for those 486 parts.

Shit is broken, even the installer doesn't work properly.

Are you using the legacy or standard CD image? It could help if you're installing it on an extremely old machine.

ESR Was Right. He tried to warn us about the attack on Linus.

Sarah Sharpe was the first shit-test, and he cucked out of it. Bitch didn't even bring the brownies she promised, and she got a seat on-stage while Linus acknowledged that he had been approached by government entities to put a backdoor into linux.

Linus tries to make sure he's never alone with a woman, so they can accuse him of groping them.

But ESR was right all along; they got his ass. He's compromised, and his project was intentionally red-flag compromised on purpose. He _knew_ how people would react to Coraline's Code of Conduct. It was a sign to fork before the craziness. It was a sign that Kroah-Hartmann's kernel is not going to be Linus' kernel, and to abandon ship.

So, who's got the first fork of 4.19-rc3 into a new kernel project, with the rc4 patches backported?

Or are we going to let Caroline Ehmke's shills and sockpuppets ruin /tech/ and demotivate us by nudging us towards suicide?

Is a fork enough? Should we have a plan to start porting drivers to another architecture, should linux continue to be Poetterized? Can someone point people that know C in the right direction towards Making OpenBSD Great Again?

Are there any actual issues with the code or do you just have a problem with the coc? Cause if it’s just the coc then just use the code and don’t use the mailing list and use fucking irc. If it’s the code then fork/clone & fix. But so far I just see a bunch of idiots whining about the coc that seems to not impact security or code at all.
