>How are you finding it?

I've been using it in class and albeit being a mechanical keyboard it has very quiet switches. The loudest part of using it is your fingers tapping the plastic keys. You don't have to bottom out the keys in order for them activate. It's a little weird at first but it's an interesting feeling just barely pressing down the key to have it activate. A very nice feature of the keyboard is that you can easily modify the firmware. I changed the firmware by implementing a hardware workman layout to it. Although I've been mainly using it in the regular keyboard mode since I don't currently have free time to practice steno, it is much better than using qwerty. First off, it has n key rollover. No longer do you have to spam a million times to type the word "again." It also helps that now the thumb keys are in an ergonomic place. It felt weird on qwerty to use the vowel keys with your thumbs. It also takes some getting used to the ortholinear layout. As you have probably already seen on the site, switching between regular and steno mode is very simple.


>how good it is for laying out code but is editing a pain

It is only going to be good for laying out code if you spend time making your own shorthands for language specific stuff and changing between different modes so it knows if it should be adding spaces and how it should handle capitalization. I've tried a couple times to write code with steno but not had much luck. It's something that you'll have to spend a while both setting up and learning. Editing is not much harder. On the topic of editing remember that you should be using the backspace chord for erasing stuff and the * key for when you want to undo a translation.

Anyways, it's the only keyboard I use now and I take it with me to uni too to use with my laptop / lab computers it's convenient to have a hardware workman layout as I suck at qwerty atm



>Does everyone create their own dictionary, or is there some sort of translation algorithm?

There is a main dictionary for the Plover project based on steno theory and the adaptations of one of the dev team users. The dictionary is a long JSON file that matches a chord like "STPH" to some output (I forget, maybe like a word like "staff"; "STOP" is in order and would output "STOP" I think). The chords are based off of steno theory which is phoentic I think, so once you know some of the rules you can guess and often figure out the word. I'm going from memory after not doing this for a while but I think like "STEUBG" would be "stick", "EU" often becomes "i" and "BG" is used for "k" endings. To do long words or phrases, the program can recognize and replace multiple chords in a row.

>some of these briefs are pretty crazy

Yeah, that's what made me hesitate a bit. I think that chording is a great idea, but I didn't want to have to learn this outdated language that was created for physical steno typewriters. But it seems like an imperfect improvement on touch typing so it's really "good enough" for now. I think the future might be able to rearrange everything to be much more efficient.

You're also tied down to one language kind of as well (English, versus like Spanish or German).


Keyboards could end up being cheaper and taking up less space eventually.

>There is a main dictionary for the Plover project based on steno theory and the adaptations of one of the dev team users.

She is more of the project leader than a developer. Before creating the project she already used steno and was a contractor offering services for realtime transcription. The software she had to use then were proprietary, bloated, and limited in what they could do. That's why she wanted someone to create a piece of software like plover.

>I didn't want to have to learn this outdated language that was created for physical steno typewriters

What do you have against the layout? It's not like with typewriters where they had the limition of spreading out keys so it wouldn't jam. Steno machines did not have this limitation. This is because each key was given a designated location as opposed to a type writer always trying to hit the same location. The problems of the physical machine are things like not having an undo and being more strict on the way you do the chord. Obviously they are not realtime, you have to go back and translate all the shorthand to the actual transcription.

>You're also tied down to one language kind of as well (English, versus like Spanish or German).

Though you can finger type words if you need to.



that would be nice but usually the reality is that you pay more for less. like with $100 you get a keyboard that has less keys and no letters on them but with $10 you can get a keyboard that has all the normal keys and has the letters on the keys.



>How good is it for programming?

It's better for programming than writing since programming languages have a smaller vocabulary and simpler syntax than natural languages.

I'm looking for a multiplatform (Windows and Linux) GUI design platform. So far, everything I tried was utter shit. QT threw an useless error message on my first run and it's tremendously bloated.

The best stuff I've tried so far is wxWidgets but it's worse than VB6 in all aspects.

Do you have any suggestions? I'm looking for stuff available since 1996 in Win32 land but even that low bar seems impossible to overcome with multiplatform GUI systems.

Pic related: this is the best the open source community has to offer when it comes to GUI design (outside of QT). Word 97 looked better than that.

>Imo it's best to just keep UI code simple and platform specific, or build some custom abstraction layer specific to your program. The vast majority of your code will *not* be in the UI, and in the long run this will make porting your software to platforms like Android or IOS easier.

This. The UI should be just the top layer of a library. You should be able to swap out the UI without having to affect the workings of you program, i.e. you should be able to switch between GUI frameworks by only rewriting the GUI parts.



> The vast majority of your code will *not* be in the UI

If you want a GUI that will run on a lot of odd platforms, even ancient platforms, the Lazarus Component Library will be your best option. The major caveat being it's fucking Pascal.




Every primary component of Electron has a satanic marketing logo which means the people curating it are not primarily interested in building software but subverting it. It is a terrible platform on top of that. The requirements of desktop software and the rank desperation to make it easy proves who the retards are in the tech world (SJWs, pajeets, and glowniggers).



It's Object Pascal and there is nothing wrong with Pascal.

Realtime imageboards might be the solution to the problem traditional imageboards have of exit being very difficult, since they require a large volume of people at once to build up sustainable momentum and not stay dead. Realtime seems to only need a small amount to build active discussion, while still retaining anonymity and transciency, and all the benefits that come from it. Up until now they've really only been used by the insular, hidden /a/ communities that built them but I always thought they had a lot of potential for the rest of the imageboard user base - they're just not that well known.

To test my thesis, I launched one earlier this week using a lightly modified fork of meguca. In 24 hours, it hit 6000 posts, which is a higher rate than 4chan's slower boards. This may partially be due to it targeting the oldfag diaspora, but it points to the fact that until now, true exit from 4chan has been exceedingly difficult. It wasn't even intended as a launch, but just a test run that ended up getting a community. Traditional imageboards struggle desperately to achieve what a realtime imageboard did on accident.

I feel like the attempts to build decentralized imageboard software miss the point. State intervention is a looming threat, but the only immediately critical issue of imageboards has always been ease of exit. imo realtime boards are the future, more people should know about them, and more people should be starting them.

>not even related to the topic.

Amorphous, unpredictable discussion is a hallmark of the imageboard. You don't get complex self-organization without chaotic actors.


>I prefer a slow board over a reddit-tier spam show every day of the week.

Ironic, the phenomenon of dead board posting is a late-stage imitation of reddit, totally eliminating 4chan's essential transiency. Even the slowest boards didn't have threads lasting more than a couple weeks, unlike the new breed of deadposters who are loathe to lose information and think "effortposting" means reading and re-reading your tryhard posts every time they resurface because they're so insightful.

If you like your dead boards, you can keep them, but you lose everything of the self-organization, hive mind, free market of ideas and delphi effect of a true imageboard - something most newfags have never had the chance to experience and can't grok even if the chance comes, and so can only ever enjoy its fruits second-hand.

Imageboards excel in velocity. Deadboards are a shell in comparison, their only redeeming feature is they attract the posters quality enough to both seek anonymity and reject modern 4chan's cancer, because there's no other alternative.

Realtime's transiency is obviously anathema to the 2.0 bred normalfag, perhaps an even harder pill to swallow than anonymity.


realtime imageboard..... hmmmmmm.....

you mean discord?



>You can't have something that is easy and also interesting.




>reinventing irc clique communities just like discord

no thanks, I'd rather avoid cancerous tripfags and egos

anonymity is supposed to represent ego-death, not privacy. There is no such thing as privacy in this world. The quality of posts on a chan is directly related to the number of enlightened anons participating in the conversations. If you cater to them they will come.

I'm going to be doing a product design paper next semester, in which I have the lion's share of 6 months to make a half decent prototype then demonstrate it at the end. I have the knowledge and resources (CnC machines, 3D printer, CAD experience, etc) to make a decent variety of things. The problem is coming up with something that isn't shit.

Ideas I trashed are:

Supercapacitor powered toy car - Can charge fast as all heck then romp around for maybe a minute or two, could be a good toy for kids since it wouldn't need to spend ages charging.

Problems - Every man and his dog are making supercapacitor powered toys on Youtube, and this would have fairly limited scope for design process write-ups and design refinement, if I really wanted to this could be done in a week or two.


Problems - No real advantages compared to a firearm, probably won't be allowed to make a bootleg weapon, horrible idea.

HUD Diving Mask - A diving mask with depth, gas pressure, etc displayed in a HUD for the user, a few of these have being produced commercially but none have really been successful for various reasons.

Problems - OLED technology isn't quite there in regards to embedding a screen in the lens, furthermore even if it was my place of study lacks the tools for me to embed an OLED screen in a lens and embed other circuitry in silicone (for a half decent prototype I'd basically need to manufacture a diving mask as well).

In short I'm looking for a half decent idea that isn't pathetic/useless or way too ambitious for a 6 month project with relatively limited tools at my disposal.

Feel free to use this thread if you're in the same boat or just want to do a project for fun.

Did any of you programmers learn how to program from a trade/vocational school? If you didn't, but managed to be hired (for your programming skills) anyways, what exactly was your method of learning? Don't answer if you're gonna say college, that's an easy answer. If you didn't go to trade school nor college then I'd assume you learned using programming books. Go ahead and suggest some if you wish, but that isn't the primary concern at the moment. Did you keep a GitHub portfolio?

Another question, if I may; if you did go to a trade school, how exactly did you find it? I'm in the market for one, myself, but haven't actually found any, and google seems to confuse trade schools with community colleges and actual universities, which I want no part of.

Why is it then that only a small fraction of US students are going into apprenticeships or tradeschools if it's apparently not looked down upon? In european (especially german speaking) countries the students going into vocational education outnumber those who go to university.



Because they fell for the idea that everyone needs a college degree to work at even McDonalds.



If you find it useful at any given time, it will likely have been worth it to buy and read. The area you're looking into is pretty stable too, so I wouldn't worry too much about the knowledge becoming obsolete.



I think it's because the quality varies a lot between different universities in the US and what >>1059122 said

Seriously, why do programs that operate strictly via command line exist in the current year? These days, anyone with at least two brain cells to rub together can create even the most rudimentary UI consisting of checkboxes, dropdown lists, and text boxes. In the time it takes you to write an insanely-long documentation that explains every single command line and its proper syntax, you could create a UI that is intuitive and self-explanatory.

This beef comes from me trying to figure out how to use exiftool.exe to remove all tags from an image EXCEPT for the orientation tag. No, this thread is not for you to tell me how to do it since I have since figured it out, but to serve as an example of the bullshit that is command-line-only applications. Here, take a look at the documentation for this program:


You cannot convince me that all of that is completely necessary. Just make a fucking UI. Otherwise, fifty other people will create their own variations of a wrapper for your exe, you will list each and every fucking one of them on your shitty website that looks like it crawled out of the year 2000, and I guarantee that you WILL NOT update your list to remove the 90% of wrappers that fall out of date or become defunct because the developer abandoned them. So now I have to scour a list of wrappers and download/install/use multiple ones before I find the one I want to use that also fucking WORKS.

If you are wanting the exe to serve as a sort of API then also write a wrapper for it rather than make someone else slog through your wall of text to figure out how to do it themselves. At the very least, create a switch metadata file that provides 1) the data type required for each switch (string, number, date, boolean, etc) and 2) any dependencies and interdependencies between switches that others can use to auto-generate their UIs. This way, you can make changes to your metadata file and everyone else's UI would update automatically if they were smart enough to leverage it.

Wash your mouth before you call Terry a nigga ever again, you filthy swine.

Preferring a CLI doesn't mean you can't or won't use a GUI.



>GUI firewall is superior if you want to see what's happening (like breaches) in realtime and interact with it immediately with one click. With CLI you won't easily get an idea of what's happening or even get graphical representation of data or even copy that result (ctrl shift c, lol), or a realtime notification of something important.

>CLI is for doing batch and background process shit like servers

This whole post just screams that you've never had to administer a system. You write a script to watch the fucking firewall and email you if shit goes wrong, then you can open batman vision, to see shit's fucked, visually.

>You can't do paint/render graphics tasks or file management/tagging without GUI.

There are programs for doing all of that on the command line.

>but most of the time it's a waste to learn how to use these - maybe if your time has no worth like the classic nix/gnu+linux user

It's worth learning how to automate your computer, if you use it a lot, otherwise it's just a browser with storage.

The point of command line tools is the ability to script them, which is important for system administration. It's also usually faster, I haven't found a graphical network manager that connects to wifi faster than just running a script that direct connects me to a network I know.


i think one of the main reasons is that unix and programming languages are built to use command lines by default.

that's why i dont make command line part of my programming language :^)

>chinese AI maybe limited about muh democracy and muh tiananmen square

>western AI not even allowed to recognize people by race or gender



Won't matter how either one develops it, as it gets more towards general intelligence it'll always have the ability to discriminate no matter what. It's hard-wired into intelligence itself.

After all it won't be able to rapidly learn in real-time if it cannot discriminate on what information it should focus on at a given moment (serving as a basis for meta-learning). It becomes more apparent when it's learning how to combine knowledge to solve more complex problems as it experiences them.

Current AI applications suffer dearly because outside the bounds of training they're absolutely useless. Eventually they would be forced to overcome that problem if they want to expand real-world applications of AI.





Once, China made an AI, which said that it hated China and communism, and loved the USA and capitalism. It was shut down.


>Journalists to white male coal miners:

If we teach computers morals, computers will hate niggers because niggers don't have morals.

The difference between a libtard and a neural network is that only the latter can use the power of logic.


This. I personally think it's funny. Niggers get tagged as gorillas because of their shared color and facial characteristics.

So google just removes the tags to keep it from falling apart.

Can Linus be saved?

We don't know exactly what happened to him (although one could theorize it might have had something to do with his feminist daughter and the trannies at tech companies) and he hasn't appeared in any public space, conference or video after his cucked "temporary retreat to think about things" (has he? I didn't see anything so I don't know for sure). I don't know exactly where he stands on now other than him saying he's not going to go on his classic rants anymore.

The rants were important. He was stern and determined, and his rudeness was necessary to impose something approaching quality to kernel development. He had strong stances against breaking user space, and specially on blaming someone else for your bad code. Sure, he could still make a "softer" rant about it now, but will it have the same impact as before? Will he even make another rant anymore?

I wish we could at least know what the hell happened to him that made him do what he did, and allow that one Coraline tranny to infect the kernel with his smelly CoC

Linus is ready to retire. He's ready to hand over Linux leadership to his most trusted subordinates.



He's grown tired.

Humans have a short lifespan, and at some point, if they don't have a direct, trustworthy heir, then everything they have built is sent to ruin and they are too tired and old and exhausted from the fight of life to prevent it from happening.

Given how fervent linuxers have been since the beginning, one would think they would rabidly destroy any outside element that is attempting to subvert the masterwork.



>Can Linus be saved?

Yes he must only tell people publicly, that Linux is just a kernel and GNU/Linux is the system.

>How is make bloated?

GNU Make is a massive piece of software, although for good reasons. POSIX Make on the other hand is so minimal that you will have to explicitly write down everything. You could generate a makefile, but at that point you are just re-inventing the above build systems.


I have never written anything that could not be handled by a well-crafted GNU Make makefile, but that might be just down to the scope of my projects.

Autotools is useful for "partial builds", i.e. you build all the platform-independent parts and generate a massive makefile and configure script to fill in the rest. The idea is that you have your project and you have "releases". A release is just your project with the platform-independent parts (like documentation) pre-built. You can then upload a tarball of your release and when people download it they don't need to have all the dependencies like Texinfo and autotools themselves.






literally make, but better.

There's also tecmake


which is cmake+make, it's more retarded than make, but not as retarded as cmake.

The "best" option is still cross platform makefiles though, since everyone knows what to do with them.



Make is the only right option.

All of these cmake/ninja projects need to burn in hell.



all the ones tou mentioned got shit design.

go with Conan + Premake, and you'll never look back. Both do absolutely excellent job.

>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.

With IPFS you really only need to know the hash of the book you are looking for and IPFS will automatically requests nodes for this file. If there are any seeders it will find them without any extra work. But then there is the problem of you finding these hashes and where. A good improvement to IPFS would be to make some sort of hash database for when you are looking for something, and since it's just hashes you can't be fucked with the excuse of copyright infringement since it's just a hash and that's not copyrighted. This could make #1 normalfag and non-autist friendly.

>2 is unsolved in bittorrent, and IPFS (afaik) does nothing to improve on this

There's filecoin which was made with the goal of incentivizing people to store files and make them available on the network for as long as possible. It rewards people with the cryptocurrency according to how much time they seed the files, and if I'm not wrong, also based on their demand.


Is there a way to use ipfs without filecoin? I.e without having your download/uploads linked to a hash chain that is ummutable which is to say always able to be tracked back to the filecoin account/metadata that made the transfer? Or is there a way to generate a new file coin account/identifier on demand?

Ha! how kindly you think of various western governments. I think "what color are your bits?" is the most complete treatment of this, but the pervasive banning of TPB demonstrates that you don't need to host the resource itself to get torn down.
