It feels like RSS is going the way of the fax machine. Anyone still use it (it beats manually checking sites)?

What rss feeds are you subbed to?

Hacker News have been shilling hard for RSS lately, after the whole Facebook thing.

I have also prefer using RSS, social media stopped being useful when they started feeding you with algorithms instead of a simple feed.


RSS is just getting into the background.

Direct use of it might be declining, but phone apps will use it to push notifications.

Ultimately whatever is in public domain is there so that you can make derivative works. They're using trademarks against the very purposes of copyright. It's a loophole that has to be closed.

Who else here has posted comments, and even made entire thread on /tech/ about various programming languages without ever having coded a single line in their lives in any language?

Who else here has waxed poetic about the virtues of ksh vs bash, never having actually touched a command line?

I've studied various threads on the board numerous time, gathered enough talking points to trash Brfs while praising ZFS and proclaiming HAMMER2 to be the FS to end all FSs whatever a FS is.

I've learned about the security risks of super-scalar architectures, and shilled for a return to the scalar processors of our recent past. We need to end x86 and push RISC you say? Hogwash! Lisp machines are the true way forward!

Sound familiar? I don't even know what a Lisp machine is, and can't be bothered to Google it.

There technically has.. but just like with other languages, one adoption takes precedence with time. All of the main people work on Rakudo (which can run on multiple VMs), really. There are other smaller implementations for people who REALLY want them.



Is raduko small and portable? I don't want to work on a VM.



Eh, it's similar to most modern languages. MoarVM is in the process of being further optimized these days.





Sell me on this then. I'm a new programmer, going through the process of learning the most basic things about python. How learning perl6 instead of tons of other languages out there would benefit me, in your perspective?

I miss Cornelia, the original stormbot waifu. ;_;

That said, if I were to remake Cornelia for 8chan, I would lay out some rules:

>Reply at a low rate to pre-existing threads, and remember what threads have been posted in and which posts were yours

>Occasionally leave and never return to a thread after posting in it

>Sometimes saged, reported, hidden, called the police (leave thread)

>Reply to people at a low rate when people reply to it

>A tell so people know it's the bot

>Don't redistribute itself the way Cornelia did (encourages spam when more people run it)

>Don't be malware like Cornelia was (she collected people's data in her archive when uploading herself)

>Occasionally check people's digits when replying to them

>Maximum proportion of threads to post in on a given catalog (so it can never post in every single thread no matter how long it's left running until new threads are introduced)

It's a proprietary language. That's what's wrong with it. That said, it is a very well-designed proprietary language. It's basically what I wish C++ was, but without the proprietorship.



C++ is also proprietary.

Only some compilers are free, but so is Mono.



So where many things that became standards as time went by.

I was thinking of buying a HiFive1 board. It has the same form factor as an Arduino, but has a RISC-V microcontroller, and is a lot faster than the Arduino Zero. But, it cost 60$.


Should I buy one?

so, is this a single core mcu?

i know its novel and appealing but kinda stiff on the pricing when an esp32 is a dual core @ 240mhz (and yes i know the arduino crowd might not be the desired crowd, jsut saying)



Not talking about the internal architecture but the bus width, you can have a 128bit CPU if it only has 8 bus lanes its gonna be seriously crippled. And won't be able to do much more then an Arduino.


File: ef345d89a3c326d⋯.webm (12.17 MB, 480x360, 4:3, Craft by lft-sNCqrylNY-0.webm)


How does bus lanes == crippled? PCI-e can push 500MB/s per lane using only 4 cables (2 LVDS pairs). Yes you won't be running SLI Titan X using that board, but it's not by any means seriously crippled. There is enough power to run some sort of video output and simple OS.



Are there any distros with releases for this thing?



This is the HiFive1, an Arduino-style device. You're not gonna see any real Linux running on it.

For the larger system, look at the HiFive Unleashed.

I hear Debian and Fedora are working on Risc-V compatibility, as are the BSDs

There is hope ReactOS will not stop development



Void Linux and Artix are systemdicks and pulseaudio free.



At this point, I genuinely don't care if windows 10 has faster or more efficient performance than windows 7. The entire design is anti-user. Even with administrative privledges, you can't uninstall their bloatware like the Xbox app. Think about how much disdain you'd have to have for your users to design an OS that forces you to have an Xbox application on your computer that you are not allowed to delete, even as admin. It's really not about performance but resepect for the end user.

How do I link time optimize the kernel?

It seems to ignore make.conf CFLAGS and there's no custom-cflags option.

The kernel would benefit from it, it gets put into and out of the cpu cache often, so if you can increase performance and decrease size with link time optimization we're looking at a theoretical all around performance improvement for the entire OS.

(this is a sfw board, have the decency of spoilering such images as the rule number 2 states)

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.



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!


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

run <Program>
volume <number or command>
search "<query>"
remind_me_about <date> <time>
set_alarm_for <date> <time>
help <subject>

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.

Use ffplay instead of cmus; ncurses is shit -- you should also switch GIMP with ImageMagick. Your file manager comes with an image viewer (xfi) so there's really no reason for sxiv. I prefer Links to NetSurf and SeaMonkey to Firefox; but that's rather personal (SeaMonkey doesn't require shitware like dbus).

In any case, I like OpenBSD, but there really isn't any documentation on things they don't want you doing (custom kernels, for example). They also highly discourage some practices that are safe, like mounting filesystems with the async flag. Lastly (and a rather personal irritant) they sing the praises of an OS well past its expire date far, far too much. Following the principles of UNIX more closely than, say, a default (by the book) Gentoo install means nothing.



Did you not read my post? I said I want to use them.



Sorry, I misinterpreted it. Still, I think you should forego Firefox in favor of SeaMonkey; you'll be able to have a system without poetteringware if you do.



what terms do you prefer?
