I started working at 15, when I took a job as a pizza cook. Over the next seven years, I moved up the ranks, to a driver, shift manager, and then as part of the “new store opening team.” The franchise was growing, and we needed to help new franchisees open their new stores. I’d travel to where the new store was a week before they would open, help train the new staff, and then work their opening weekend. It was really fulfilling work; if pizza paid as well as tech, I’d seriously consider doing it forever.

One time, somewhere in Maryland, I got a bit ill. It wasn’t a good idea for me to work the rest of the week, but the company’s top brass would usually visit to cut the ribbon on the store. It was about a four hour drive back to home, and our COO graciously agreed to let me come back to the ‘burgh with him, so I could recover at home. On the drive, I asked him what he did before working here, and the answer really surprised me. “Oh, I was the CEO of American Eagle. I grew them from 20 locations to 200, and then decided to move on.” To a kid from the suburbs, being in charge of one of the most popular clothing brands among my peers seemed like a great gig. Why’d he quit? The answer is something that’s really stuck with me; this happened about fifteen years ago. What he told me was this: at each stage of a company’s growth, they have different needs. Those needs generally require different skills. What he enjoyed, and what he had the skills to do, was to take a tiny company and make it medium sized. Once a company was at that stage of growth, he was less interested and less good at taking them from there. And that was what he was trying to do for our pizza chain.

I’ve mostly worked at small companies. I did a startup, then consulted, then worked for a series of companies with five to 15 people. I quit one of those jobs when I found Rust. What I saw in Rust was something that the world really needed. And I wanted to help it get there. Beyond that, the only real way to get a job working on Rust was to work at Mozilla. And independently of Rust, that was something I’m really excited about.

-depending on how much ram you want/single or dual channel, you can anywhere between 15 to 40 dollars

-many have shitty batteries that can't hold a charge, consider investing in a new battery

-get one that doesn't have cooling issues, overheating all the time will not only burn your thighs and cock, it will also burn out the hardware much faster as well.

-get a regular/full sized one, slim/thin or mini laptops are a shit

In short, demos are computer programs showing the amazing capabilities of a given platform in an entertaining way, sort of like a music video, but instead of rendering some animation offline it's real time. Of course modern computers are so powerful it's hard for just few people to make some new thing on pc that was never done before graphics wise, so to make things interesting people are restricting themselfs to small executable sizes like 64 or 4kb, sometimes even just 256 bytes.

I'm personally way more interested in the demoscene for retro computers, Amiga and C64 in particular. Some of you might remember me making such threads before from time to time where I was just posting clips from the demos I liked. Well... I finally started coding on C64 this year and managed to release 3 productions, one even at the largest C64 party in Holland.

For me nothing can best the fun I get from programming demos on the C64. The platform has lots of weird quirks and limitations that really make you think different about creating your desired effects. That's true for most of the retro plarforms, where you didn't have enough ram and fast cpu to just calculate everything, instead you are playing with the raster beam to bend the graphics and using the weird bugs of the chips to produce some unusual results, but I feel like the C64 has the most of unintentional features of the old computers and it also has an awesome soundchip.

Well, here's my crap, feel free download and run in emulator or look up the names on YouTube for videos. If you have a C64 and are able to run it on real HW that's even better. It's PAL only.

I can explain some of the C64 trickery if people are interested

>In July 2016, USA Today concluded from the thoughts of Columbia University sociology professor Carla Shedd, that the phrase "'All Lives Matter' can actually be interpreted as racist". It also cited professor Joe Feagin, who said that white people use the phrase "All Lives Matter" to ignore the Black Lives Matter movement, which he described as "already about liberty and justice for all." USA Today reported that some celebrities who had tweeted using the hashtag #AllLivesMatter, including Jennifer Lopez and Fetty Wap, had deleted the tweets and apologized.

Updates

0.4.17

>ipfs 0.4.17 is a quick release to fix a major performance regression in bitswap (mostly affecting go-ipfs → js-ipfs transfers). However, while motivated by this fix, this release contains a few other goodies that will excite some users.

>The headline feature in this release is urlstore support. Urlstore is a generalization of the filestore backend that can fetch file blocks from remote URLs on-demand instead of storing them in the local datastore.

>Additionally, we've added support for extracting inline blocks from CIDs (blocks inlined into CIDs using the identity hash function). However, go-ipfs won't yet create such CIDs so you're unlikely to see any in the wild.

Features

>URLStore (ipfs/go-ipfs#4896)

>Add trickle-dag support to the urlstore (ipfs/go-ipfs#5245).

>Allow specifying how the data field in the object get is encoded (ipfs/go-ipfs#5139)

>Add a -U flag to files ls to disable sorting (ipfs/go-ipfs#5219)

>Add an efficient --size-only flag to the repo stat (ipfs/go-ipfs#5010)

>Inline blocks in CIDs (ipfs/go-ipfs#5117)

Changes/Fixes

>Make ipfs files ls -l correctly report the hash and size of files (ipfs/go-ipfs#5045)

>Fix sorting of files ls (ipfs/go-ipfs#5219)

>Improve prefetching in ipfs cat and related commands (ipfs/go-ipfs#5162)

>Better error message when ipfs cp fails (ipfs/go-ipfs#5218)

ipfs is not meant to be anonymous, it uses DHT essentially and nodes are essentially broadcast. What it /is/ useful for is to make it hard to censor the content since that would require taking down all the bootstrap servers (which you can patch with your own) and the clients that host the content.

To anonymize it you simply need to tunnel the traffic over a network interface (actual or virtual) that is secured.

Nope, the revocation of the "Geek Feminists" license /just/ occurred. 2019. January.

And YES, the author can revoke.

You were asking "Oh if you can do it, go an do it".

Now it has been done, and let it be noted that you shut your mouth suddenly.

The last time a revocation of a GPL licensed work happened, it was a blanket-world-wide revocation (differing from this revocation from a small number of people) and the distros DID stop distributing the affected piece of software.

The license is a gratuity, with no interest attached. It can be rescinded by the grantor. Just as you can kick a guest out of your property that has worn out their welcome (you gave them license (permission) to occupy, and now you are rescinding that license), you can do the same regarding other property.

I apologize for coming dangerously close to blogposting here, but since I'm speculating/bouncing ideas off of a wall here, I can't think of a way to write this without it appearing so.

Would making an interoperable format(*) for user profiles and reviews be worthwhile (whatever that means)? I don't have a good grasp and what all it would contain (I'm just bouncing it off of you pathetic incels), but at the minimum it would contain the user's ratings and comments associated with certain links (and the links could relate to any product/service/website) or other profiles of the same format (which would allow the public at large to collect and 'weight' user ratings if they wished--I'll get into privacy concerns regarding this later). Every change to the profile would have some sort of cryptographic verification which would be used to identify different users in the format.

Obviously, currently existing social media platforms would not use it because they already have too much of an existing market share to want to use an interoperable and open format, but there would be two major players that might want to have such a format, as they'd be able to pull off of a larger network of previously existing customer data:

>Newer platforms: Bitchute, Voat, etc..

>Large retailers that are still heavily active in meatspace without as large collection of online customers as other online retailers: Walmart, Best Buy, etc..

Regarding privacy in the format, the biggest part of this would be the need of tags in this interoperable format to store zero-knowledge proofs that the profile was associated with a possible purchase or association to a product or service. That way no immediately identifiable information could be associated with the format, and users could make a new profile for each use if they so chose to maintain anonymity or pseudoanonmity if they wished.

(*) For those who want a better idea of what is meant by interoperability, the EFF has a series of articles about it: Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Have you looked into Mastodon and Pleroma? Bitchute, Voat, Gab, they're all cucked because you will never own your own infrastructure. With Mastodon and Pleroma (they interoperate) you can join the "fediverse" if you like, or not, run your own server or use somebody else's, and even transfer your profile, statuses, etc. from server to server.

You can make an account right now at mastodon.social if you're an SJW cuck or shitposter.club if you're not pozzed.

But from what I understand, those formats don't have any reviews or purchase information. Something that would be the genesis of federating away from Amazon/Uber as opposed to federating away from Facebook/Google.

I'm one of those people who saves images off of *booru-type boards, and while I tried to keep it organized I inevitably found myself with folder like "good1", "good17", "abs", etc.

Well, I noticed my sloppy habits were using lots of HDD space, so I wrote a little bash script which would put all the images in one central folder, md5 them, then link them in my categories. Saved some HDD space.

But then I f'd up, and accidentally scrambled my folders. With everything in one big fat disorganized folder with md5 names I really didn't want to put effort into sorting them... ... So I wrote another script which would scrape various booru sites and get the tags for the images I had, dumping them into a text file. I didn't know what to do with it, but I knew it was a good step.

A week later I went back and made another script that would create and populate folder based on searches I threw at it. I could just run something like "prondir big_breasts flat_chest -o bigandsmall", and it worked nicely!

But this was ugly. I like nice things. So this morning I started the bare bones of a proper SQL database, tossed a custom MVC CMS I wrote into it, jammed my tag database in there, and put together a mini-site for my glorious porn browsing.

Then I made it nicer... and I started adding features. I crossed the event horizon of "this is for me" into "hey, I think this could be a thing?" It's only day 1 into "formal" development, but I re-wrote my Bash stuff into PHP, and started on features that I would want. E.g; when you view an image it will also recommend images you might also be interested in.

So, if I keep going on this thing - what would anyone want to see in a new booru board? Since it's only got bare bones, there's not any tech debt, planning now around what everyone wants seems like an idea.

Do you happen to still have this script? I don't care about maintaining databases or a local imageboard. All I want are tags in my filenames so I can grep my pictures folder.

Linux 5.0 to stop non-GPL kernel modules from using floating point or SIMD instructions in a thinly veiled attempt to kill ZFS (the only good FOSS filesystem) on Linux.

Mailing list discussion here, the people behind the decision don't even try to hide their disdain for ZFS even when other kernel developers say the decision will harm them

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAB9dFdsZb-sZixeOzrt8F50h1pnUK2W2Cxx8+xjhgd0=6xs7iw@mail.gmail.com/#t

>My tolerance for ZFS is pretty non-existant.

Note that this will also kill the performance of all non-GPL crypto code and anything else that relies on vector instructions or floating point.

SPARC has a defined death date now, though. Fujitsu dropped it for ARM, will probably only release one last chip, and nobody else uses it (even though it was libre far before RISC-V was even thought of, hell there were the OpenSPARC T1/T2 chips) because of Oracle.

I only hope for MIPS to gain traction again when it gets opened, as I like it.

>In a country without well enforced traffic laws, you're much more likely to be run over by a truck.

The point is you're not actually free from anything. Any retribution comes after the fact. People waste ridiculous amounts of time and money pursuing what amounts to petty state-sanctioned punishments as revenge for a violation that shouldn't have happened in the first place. It solves nothing, it prevents nothing, it guarantees nothing. All it does is inflict pain and isolation on people in the hope that it will discourage others. It's a failure. It may reduce infractions but not completely eliminate them. Therefore, you as a pedestrian are not free enough to simply cross a street without looking both ways.

>By this logic GPL doesn't affect your freedom, because the FSF will have to sue you to stop you.

That is precisely the logic. I can simply take other people's projects on github and dare them to do something about it. Most of them aren't going to do shit. Think a bunch of volunteers have a lawyer on retainer? Hilarious. Think China gives a shit about your copyright and the fact some chinese faggots are violating it? They will do nothing and and if they change their mind later lawyers will use the fact they did nothing before as evidence they didn't intend to enforce the copyright anyway.

Have you ever been to the emulator community? That one is a comedy. They'll GPL their software, get mad when people sell it on app stores (which is something they actually can do) and proceed to do nothing about it except bitch. Even in cases non-commercial licenses are violated they do nothing.

GPL violation is the norm. The only reason to worry at all is if you're some rich company since it does make you a target for petty state-sanctioned revenge. Poor faggots don't get sued.

Another cool thing about the emulator community is how they frequently get C&D'd or sued by big ass companies despite doing nothing illegal. These companies have the gall to suggest that comparative advertising is copyright infringement. Even though it is completely legal to develop emulators and show screenshots of games running on it compared to original hardware, they are still not free enough to do it because companies have vast amounts of money and they don't. When companies sue, the choice is either capitulate or go to court and literally nobody is going to go to court.

>The funny thing about systemd is that one of the reasons it was claimed to be written for (quicker startup, as if that even fucking matters in any way) it doesn't really fulfill anymore

The optimized startup is to support the whole containerization/microservices fad. In the olden days you basically never reboot your linux box so startup time was irrelevant like you said but since spawning containers on demand became a thing so arose the need for a new init system.

>A well written daemon acts gracefully if the resources it needs are not available (yet)

> If you find one, you better should seek an alternative instead of writing a mess of an init system around it, or bug the developers and ask them why their daemon is garbage.

You're looking at this from guy-in-his-basement perspective. In the corporate world you have no control over shit your boss wants running on 100s of machines. So Redhat providing a robust init system that can handle shitty init scripts is actually providing value to customers.

>Even most normie and pajeet computer janitors seem to start to realize that systemd is kinda garbage

There's a big difference between garbage and solving problems you don't have. It is regrettable that so many community distros did the easy thing (from a packaging/maintainer perspective) and went with systemd instead of something more suitable for home/personal use. They are the ones you should be mad at.

that is not true, but if you are a low level pajeet then probably yes.

problem is that if you have running the same thing on these machines for a decade, then vendor decides to push bullshit from upstream, what can you do?

you wait and see.

the vendor gained trust over the last decade, so you rely on his decision.

and so you wait and see.

you make stats of failures, analysis and decide how much money you've lost by their decision.

then you make educated call.

this could take years.

but once the trust is lost, it's hard to gain it back.

problem then becomes, who could replace vendors such as redhat or veritas.

HyperX breaks DDR4 RAM overclocking world record with 5608MHz speed!

By Brian Fagioli

>If you are a PC builder and/or gamer, you know this is a wonderful time to be alive. Hardware is faster than ever, while companies are increasingly catering to enthusiasts with components that look great too. And yeah, appearance matters -- assembling a PC is art to many people. It is truly remarkable to see the amazing desktops consumers are building these days. RGB lighting in particular has been a fun game-changer.

>When selecting memory for a new build, there are a few brands of RAM that PC builders can always depend upon, such as G.SKILL, HyperX, and Corsair -- all three are excellent. HyperX in particular -- the gaming division of legendary memory-maker Kingston -- has amassed a cult following by consistently offering top hardware at reasonable pricing. HyperX has branched out from RAM, however, also offering storage, headsets, and keyboards to name few. With that said, memory is still its claim to fame, and today, HyperX announces it has reached a huge milestone -- it has shattered the DDR4 memory overclocking world record. Seriously, folks, you won't believe the speed achieved -- 5608MHz!

>"HyperX Predator DDR4 memory was used to set a new overclocking world record for the fastest DDR4 memory frequency at 5608MHz. The world record for highest frequency was set by overclocker 'TOPPC' of MSI using a single HyperX Predator DDR4 8G module on an MPG Z390I GAMING EDGE AC. At the time of this release, the record-breaking frequency is posted on HWBOT, the site for PC enthusiasts looking for news, tips and information on overclocking, benchmarks and competitions," says Kingston's gaming division.

>The machine used to break the world record is using an Intel Core i9-9900K CPU running at 3.60GHz. Since the overclocker, TOPPC, works for MSI, he of course used one of his company's motherboards -- the MPG Z390I GAMING EDGE AC (MS-7C04). The specs of the RAM can be seen below.

ESR has opined that those who have been making the argument that copyright-holding linux-kernel-programmers have the right to rescind their licenses regarding linux-kernel code they own; have a good factual case, but need help with public relations. The lengthy explanations come off as "obsessive" to the public, but how to explain the foundations of the law and how such relates to the fact-pattern succinctly?

<blockquote>

>ESR: The post a few posts above which starts with \u201cSubject Threats of \u201cblackballing\u201d from industry if copyright-holders rescind.\u201d has the links at the end.

Then my thoughts are

(1) It didn\u2019t belong in this post threat.

(2) I think you have a decent factual case. Now, if you could just stop sounding enough like an obsessed crank to be easily written off, you might get somewhere with it.

The "Rescind" discussion has arisen after the implementation of a Code of Conduct, which threatens to penalize gratis programmers for utterances they make anywhere, if deemed offensive. Effectively treating contributors as utterly replaceable employees++. The crux of the matter being that many contributors never signed over ownership of their code, and did not ever receive nor seek any form of payment for their licensing of their code under the GPL version 2 terms; making the license grant a gratuitous license: which under US licensing law are revocable not being supported by an interest, according to the "Recind"(ers).

++ (See statements by Matthew Garret and Bruce Perens to such effect)

Most large projects require contributors to sign over ownership of the copyrights to the project. The FSF has always followed this policy, to avoid contributor rescission, Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
