I think the better question is that of why gitlab is still using azzure cloud months later.


>shitting up the thread

You still haven't answered my questions and are resorting to ad hominim instead of explaining your thoughts logically. I'm no shill but either way that doesn't change gitlab's shady history and partially closed source software which is botnet. Gitlab's website blocks you from downloading branches of FOSS except the master branch unless you make an account btw. Their website also doesn't work very well if you block botnet/javascript.

What is your favorite pastebin-like service? I'm looking for something good with a CLI client that I can use.

I have been using hastebin.com for quite some time due to it's easy-to-use cli that uploads directly to hb:


cat file | haste --raw # or

haste file --raw


It has served me well, but lately it's been giving me weird SSL/TLS errors when using it with curl on some of my boxen even after fixing the date iirc. Anyone else seen this? Should I host my own haste-server or should I use some other service?

The ability to highlight text or objects in any program and feed them in any other program regardless of context.

In NeXTSTEP and OSX, programs can register certain functions of themselves in an SQL database and they'll show up in the Services menu.

In MacOS for example, you can highlight text in any window, webpage, or application and select the dictionary service or the Text-to-Speach Service, or if you have a spellchecking service installed than it can provide spellchecking squiggles and suggestions into any program.

It can do a lot more than text of course but it's integrated across all programs in a way that no other toolkit provides.

>NIST has initiated a process to solicit, evaluate, and standardize one or more quantum-resistant public-key cryptographic algorithms.

>In recent years, there has been a substantial amount of research on quantum computers – machines that exploit quantum mechanical phenomena to solve mathematical problems that are difficult or intractable for conventional computers. If large-scale quantum computers are ever built, they will be able to break many of the public-key cryptosystems currently in use. This would seriously compromise the confidentiality and integrity of digital communications on the Internet and elsewhere. The goal of post-quantum cryptography (also called quantum-resistant cryptography) is to develop cryptographic systems that are secure against both quantum and classical computers, and can interoperate with existing communications protocols and networks.

>The question of when a large-scale quantum computer will be built is a complicated one. While in the past it was less clear that large quantum computers are a physical possibility, many scientists now believe it to be merely a significant engineering challenge. Some engineers even predict that within the next twenty or so years sufficiently large quantum computers will be built to break essentially all public key schemes currently in use. Historically, it has taken almost two decades to deploy our modern public key cryptography infrastructure. Therefore, regardless of whether we can estimate the exact time of the arrival of the quantum computing era, we must begin now to prepare our information security systems to be able to resist quantum computing.

>The day someone makes an open source alternative to windows with the same exact functionality and usability I'll be the first to jump the windows ship

It's right in front of your cum-stained eyes, it's called GNU/Linux, there is nothing that Windows can do that GNU/Linux can't.


the fact you think Windows is usable goes to show you've never gone out of the little bubble that Microsoft set up for you, I bet you've never installed GNU/Linux in any of your machines.



>there is nothing that Windows can do that GNU/Linux can't

It doesn't screen tear. It supports windowed gsync. It doesn't have sound cut out when copying large files. etc..

Linux still has trouble with the desktop basics of the '90s. Master race is using Linux via WSL on Windows 10.



>It doesn't screen tear.

Weird, it does screen tear me just the same as Xorg in my machine.

>It supports windowed gsync.

*gsync doesn't support Linux.

>It doesn't have sound cut out when copying large files.

Nor does Linux

>Linux still has trouble with the desktop basics of the '90s.

Linux is a kernel, it does not include a Desktop Environment, are you referring to a specific DE that runs on GNU/Linux?, what DE would that be?, there are multiple ones, Linux is not tied to a single GUI that looks like shit.

>Master race is using Linux via WSL on Windows 10.

>audio is just so crappy on linux

It's unusable. Even if you get some hack setup it will be broken by meme updates anyway.

I know we can shit on C/UNIX forever about X, but lets have a thread where we actually list GOOD things about C/UNIX concepts and paradigms. I'll start.

You will never find a more worldwide supported language than C. Since the birth of the IBM PC, C has been THE standard in technology and the basis of everything modern computers use. The software you using to view this post most likely has been either written in C, or written in a language that is based off C, not to mention using libraries written in it that are required to function.

LISPjew need not apply, infact I foretell that this thread will make him beyond shitter shattered he'll spam the thread. I have only one question to ask him, why the lack of competion?

I've always wondered if this story was true, and who it was who wrote
the find command. In the Oct. 94 issue of Byte they had an article on "UNIX
at 25" which said that Dick Haight wrote the find command along with cpio,
expr, and a lot of the include files for Version 7 of UNIX. I don't know
where to send this message directly to Dick Haight, and I would appreciate it
if you would forward it to him, if you are able. If you can't, well then I
hope you liked the story. I got your mail address from "The UNIX Haters
Handbook", and would like to add this to your Anti-Forward:

Until that frozen day in HELL occurs, and the authors of that book write
a better operating system, I'm sticking with UNIX.

But we don't need GC anymore. Rust has proven it on paper and in practice. It's ancient history, man.



That sounds great.


Well, I guess the reason why I looked forward to asking the question was because I did want some kind of feedback on the idea that the /tech/ industry developed "unnaturally" or it developed according to profit rather than tech and so programming languages are "deformed" because they're adapted to the present tech rather than the ideal tech that would arise in a society where hardware is developed according to what makes the hardware best.

Now that I think about it though, since the US military would've been interested in the best possible tech for their own uses, the tech must be okay and so programming languages must be okay as well.


Can you explain why TempleOS got so much attention again?



The people here love Terry's character and they love the fact that he wrote an operating system that's more than a trivial academic toy. TempleOS was designed to be a programmer's toy in the same character as the Commodore 64 computer.

Generally speaking, LISP is the closest there is to being the best language, but there's plenty of cases when other languages win. If you're going to add scripting to an application, use LISP, if you're going to solve mathematical problems, use LISP, if you're going to automate administration tasks, use LISP, if you're going to write a dynamic website, there are unfortunately not many options better than LISP. If you're going to write a driver, use LISP. If you're going to write a business application, use LISP.

I have no idea how to phrase this so it sounds bad title wise and I apologies.

Many of us here are way outside the realms of acceptable opinions. We clash with pretty much everything the tech industry is doing now but we also love tech. This leaves us in a bad situation where we want to be involved but have to completely lie about ourselves to do so.

How do you go about it? What do you find helps you get in people's good books and lets you build up associates? How many times have you failed and what was the results?

Are there any books or videos you would recommend for people trying to improve their social skills for networking purposes?

Recently found a WRT54G at a local goodwill and I thought to myself why these aren't used as actual devices? People love to install openWRT and ssh into them. Why hasn't anyone try to interface them with some bitmap graphics terminal with them like the Blit originally was and use it as a tiny computer? They're essentially SBCs with decent enough MIPS/ARM chips in them.

I can't help, but get rock on for these routers. I really like the blue aesthetic.

Since the WRT54G has an internal GPIO like what >>931430 said, it's possible just to run it on an 8-bit bus.
