Just watched a talk about the degradation of technology over time (https://youtu.be/pW-SOdj4Kkk), and it made me want to start taking what I do more seriously. But when I think about it, I really have no idea where to even begin looking for information or even what to look for.

What can we do to improve the spread of information and ability to learn/teach /tech/ properly? For example deep systems-level understanding of computer software and hardware, not python scriptkiddy-tier shit. How to compile a program, how to draw shit into the monitor, how operating systems work and what it would take to make one, how to do networking, how to make your program enjoyable to use, how to make a decent GUI, how do you "hack" or mod other programs, how would you replace a given part of your Linux distro with another or even your own, how to install 8chan into your computer so you can modify the source code, how to contribute code to other people's projects...

I run into this problem very often where I want to learn something or teach other people about something but it's so hard to find information that's comprehensive, easy to understand, not sunken into a sea of useless "information" (like what books tend to have), and is shared by someone who's clearly competent and personally understands the topic well and doesn't shove retarded opinions that are clearly questionable down your throat.

Try to search something in a search engine, and you're more likely to get some javascript retard from stackoverflow telling you to not do what you wanted to know about and instead do a different thing. Try to learn some fundamental programming topic and you'll end up in places where you're told to install visual studio right before being asked to import a bunch of libraries into some hideously convoluted OOP machine. Search for games in steam and you'll get all kinds of bullshit that have nothing to do with your search query, if you search for RPGs right now you'll literally get a bunch of porn and visual novels. There's something fundamentally wrong with the way the logistics for obtaining and sharing information is currently set up.

It depends on if you subscribe to the NPC hypothesis. I do, though evidence one way or another is scarce, so I'll be coming from that angle.

In the spirit of programming tutorials, we’ll start by creating a very basic “hello, world” texture that can then be loaded with SDL. Here, we will use the free tool Grafx2 on Windows, but any and all graphic tools that can save BMP format will do.

In this tutorial I’ll use the Terminus font with the gq2 and td1 variants. For Windows it comes with a neat installer that allows you to choose the patches easily.

if your network card is proprietary, closed hardware, has access to network, has DMA, has drivers, what makes you think it doesn't connect to (((their))) servers and doesn't send all your data, including encryption password, keystrokes etc?

why isn't FSF doing their own network cards? I can imagine development and production of CPU or chipsets could be hard, but network cards are easy and simple, protocols are well documented, so what's stopping them?

And I know it says they do, among other things, "programming work", but that's just part of a general bullshit mission statement. Show me which employee or contractor actually does the programming. The list of employees is public, so it should be easy for you to dig there, and as I explained there isn't much money left over possibly given to contractors (30k in the last published financial statement) but if you have any evidence that was money paid for code (as opposed to the myriad of other "services" it could be used to pay for, considering what the rest of the one and a half million went to) then present it to us.

https://www.pine64.org/2019/07/05/july-update-all-about-the-pinebook-pro/

Pinebook Pro pre-orders start July 25

forum members get priority. fuck.

>Linux

Let’s talk a bit about the state of Linux for the Pinebook Pro. As far as Linux on ARM development goes, I can say with confidence that we’re in what I like to call the luxury territory. What I mean by this is that everything works – some things better than others, but it’s all there – and there are no deal-breaking issues in any of the builds. Developers have effectively moved from ‘making things work’ to ‘making things work better’ in the past two months. Improvements are literally done daily, if not hourly, and everything from desktop acceleration to trackpad settings and battery-life is being continually tweaked. Regarding the custom Debian build that will ship with the Pinebook Pro – at the time of writing we still have about two weeks to continue tweaking things so they work their best. You will, of course, likely want to hit the update icon when you get your laptop, which will update the kernel and numerous other things, as well as run your regular apt updates and upgrades.

>battery

That said, cool things have been done to improve battery life on the kernel level. MrFixit2001 has managed to make the governor monitor activity, so that not only does it set the frequency of the cores but also automatically turns the cores on and off on a need-be basis. We expect that this will see a significant improvement to battery life as well as thermals whilst having a relatively small impact on performance. From my testing, relative to all cores being active and the default interactive governor settings being applied, running webGL demos and playing simple games the observable performance difference is really negligible (for reference, 5 FPS difference running Aquarium WebGL demo). This is a very cool trick and one will be further improved upon and find its way into the majority, if not all, OS’ for the Pinebook Pro. Lastly, I think its worth noting that you can also turn individual cores on and off manually from the userspacePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

While this is mostly true, jewtube and Facebook as well as many other sites have both community based report systems as well as (inadequate) moderation teams that do reduce the amount of illicit content on such platforms. 8ch does a decent job at this, given the high numbers of users trying to share such content here and the low amount of illicit content that shows up in threads like this one.

What makes these users flock to Tox and Kik is the absolute failure of Kik’s report system as well as the non-existance of such a system on Tox due to it’s nature.

You could say they are looking gor a veneer of privacy but I think they just stick out like a sore thumb on unmoderated platforms.

What's a scripting language that doesn't suck?

>lua

90% of the stdlib is unusable, the syntax is sensible, it's completely useless for anything other than its logical operators which literally anything can do better. For instance sh has a large amount of different kinds of expansion you can use to augment your logic.

Because at least it can get you there with logical operators and whatever you should be using it for will be providing you with nonstandard functions, at least it can be a garbage (but less so than the alternatives) extension language which was its original goal.

Also one of those things that are basically undocumented, and no the horrible manuals on the website or the cashgrab books (thank fuck I pirated them) don't count.

>sh

Best syntax except for the fact that even in POSIX builtins it's completely ignored by half the commands (look at getopts syntax for instance). Otherwise you can literally just say "do thing" and it does thing, WOOOOOOOW. No idea how everything else screwed this up so bad.

The ksh manual for instance is 2000~ lines and after that you already know POSIX shell + some bourne/korn extensions, and how limited it all is sadly.

Can't even fucking do argument splitting without requiring you to write an incomprehensible dirty hack, specially if you want to have long opts and will turn into a dirty hack one way or another if your script does anything but run commands in series.

>python

Go back to India.

I'm going to try perl now and if it's shit too I'm not aware of another scripting language.

I don't know what else to try, everything so far is unusable, at least sh works sorta, unlike python and lua which are too shit for even that.

The real plus of Tcl are:

* No keywords; everything (if, while, even proc) is a procedure that you can redefine yourself. Outside of twelve rules defining the language, nothing is set in stone.

* The whole concept of uplevel (execute code in the caller's context) is genius.

* Homoiconic.

* Everything is passed by value, with a lot of copy-on-write going on in the background. The way to pass by reference (upvar) is refreshingly simple compared to the usual stuff.

* Everything is a string, making serialization trivial.

* One of the cleanest and simplest syntaxes.

* Good (as in neither C nor Java/Python tier) amount of "batteries included" with some quality stuff like Tk or Expect.

* Very easy C <=> Tcl interaction (yes, both sides).

* Channels and the builtin event loop makes networking/event handling easy as pie.

* Hacker community devoid of niggerfaggots; the "price" of unpopularity, I guess.

* Seamless handling of bigints.

* Actually quite fast since version 8.

* Explicit tailcall.

* Actual manpages, not some doc on a shitty javascript website.

The language is a bit like Scheme: one of the best playgrounds for autists obsessing over A E S T H E T I C S. The only bad thing is that the invaluable wiki is behind Cloudflare.

I find that rc solves many of the inadequacies I've had with sh (posix or otherwise). Lua also solves many of those issues.

What a shit taste you have. sh is the only good scripting language.

SKS Keyserver Network Under Attack

>In the last week of June 2019 unknown actors deployed a certificate spamming attack against two high-profile contributors in the OpenPGP community

>This attack exploited a defect in the OpenPGP protocol itself in order to "poison" rjh and dkg's OpenPGP certificates.

>Anyone who attempts to import a poisoned certificate into a vulnerable OpenPGP installation will very likely break their installation in hard-to-debug ways.

>Poisoned certificates are already on the SKS keyserver network. There is no reason to believe the attacker will stop at just poisoning two certificates.

>There are a few major takeaways and all of them are bad.

>If you fetch a poisoned certificate from the keyserver network, you will break your GnuPG installation.

>Poisoned certificates cannot be deleted from the keyserver network.

>The number of deliberately poisoned certificates, currently at only a few, will only rise over time.

>We do not know whether the attackers are intent on poisoning other certificates.

>We do not even know the scope of the damage.

>Mitigations

>High-risk users should stop using the keyserver network immediately.

>Users who are confident editing their GnuPG configuration files should follow the following process:

> Open gpg.conf in a text editor. Ensure there is no line starting with keyserver. If there is, remove it.

> Open dirmngr.conf in a text editor. Add the line keyserver hkps://keys.openpgp.org to the end of it.

>keys.openpgp.org is a new experimental keyserver which is not part of the keyserver network and has some features which make it resistant to this sort of attack.

autism

reminds me of this autistic boomer who was shitposting almost violently about a 8-bit computer being made about how syntax highlighting is a mistake and wants muh grayscale monochrome text, perfectly sanitary, etc. The more I think about it, the more slowly I believe it.

No it's actually a different thing. vscode is an atom clone, text editor built in electron. Even has a legit open source repo like chromium/chrome. https://github.com/microsoft/vscode
