Never seen so many empty spots in Frys Electronics and after talking with the help, Ive learned those spots stent getting filled.

LG and Sonos have both cut off shipments to Frys over nonpayment issues.

Looks like they'll be joining RadioShack soon. Sad.

Truly a shit thread OP.


The age of the middleman jew is coming to an end. All hail the era of lean distribution. All hail AMAZON.


>Never seen so many empty spots in Frys Electronics

There are two Fry's within an hour's drive from me. They both have this issue in low trafficked areas. Unless you have a link with solid info, I'm gonna have to call bullshit.



I actually like going out and buying what I need.



What I especially like is going to a store where the staff have expert knowledge. It's very rare that you can go to a big box store like HomeDepot, Best Buy, etc. and find an employee who understands the product he is selling.

whats wrong with cloudflare? i like them but want to find something to be cautious because they sound too good to be true.

they announced their own dns with dns over https


they encrypted sni so isp couldnt see what site you visit by that


they fixed the annoying captcha problem



so are there any reason they shouldnt be trusted?


i find this site but it didnt seem serious to me.

==THIS== , major DDoS and really most cyber-threats are from nation-states, not script kiddies. Isreal basically DDoS sites they (and their ISPs) lack oversight on and the only solution for these sites is to adopt Cloudflare who are APPARENTLY the only company that is successful at mitigating these attacks.. pure coincidence. It's basically a 'if they won't join you, beat them until they will' kind of situation.




And (((they))) will win. They always do.



>Why not just link to the different pages?

assuming the admin is shit, they could be running different server software. Each server just listens on a different port, rather than needing some fancy reverse proxy to connect them together.

here's a source ya retard, from a presentation on cybersecurity from the Bank of England. and if any prodigies comment on me using windows, feel free to hack into my machine any time you want, stolen games and throwaway emails await you.

any genuine hacker who's breaking into critical infrastructure and doesn't have state protection already is gonna get doxxed sooner than later, and then probably recruited by the very state they were fucking with in the first place.

The internet of the (immediate) future will be indistinguishable from TV.

You will pay a monthly fee to access several "sites", and pay additional fees for additional sites accessed. These sites will be even plainer and more neutered versions of youtube, facebook, twitter, instagram, along with netflix and CNN like news. Youtube will just be a netflix clone. REDDIT will be a non interactive homepage for news, cooking, weather, etc. 4chan will be the new REDDIT. You may be able to create sites, but you can't go beyond existing templates, words filters, and image stocks.

How much would it cost to:

Build and maintain a satellite that would allow everyone within LOS to communicate with everyone else within LOS, with the satelite acting as a server? Goal being an internet that can be accessed anywhere and can only be censored by blowing up the satellite itself. This free internet will (at first?) only be text based to save on memory (and to not deal with the inevitable criminal use of it, like CP)

This is why I’m slowly transitioning away from using the internet as anything more than a thing to look up information and talking logistics of meeting with friends and colleagues. It’s gonna be like TV in the sense that it’s getting absolutely commercialized and pretty much useless except for a service or two and all the smart people will move away from it for the most part. The communities are all either dead, really small, or highly fractured. The main things normies use are youtube, amazon, and social media anyways. We’re witnessing the end of an era bois. But it’s not gonna be a big battle thing like the blackpills imagine it. It’s just gonna cease to be a thing. I’m just gonna keep cooking and tending to my garden


Not unless they block all the other websites. Normies can sit whenever the fuck the want to and pay for their youtubes or whatever. While we do our own thing.


I already find the internet indistinguishable from TV in that it's mostly boring nonsense.

I'm getting cancer from this thread. It's like nobody bothers to close their browsers. There's more to the Internet and computers than Port 80 and 443. There are more things to see than Hypertext. The Internet is returning to the 1990s if you look beyond the World Wide Web. Go get two routers and hack them up with higher powered antennae so they can talk with one another. Go teach yourself an Internet Protocol like TCP. Go get some toy infrared sender and receiver and see if you can signal with your RPi, or whatever meme flavor you want. Before you talk about satellites, why not try a weather balloon? RC plane? Model rocket? A $30 RC tonka toy?

In fact, go get yourself a drone and try to implement RFC1149 (A Standard for the Transmission of IP Datagrams on Avian Carriers)


...then implement QoS


,,,and finally IPv6

Because all you do is consume. Well, and shitpost here apparently. But once that dopamine rush wears off, you still feel like shit. That's because posting here isn't building. You aren't learning. You are not *doing*. And it feelsbadman.jpg

If Lisp is so good, how come nobody has even made a text editor with it? No, Emacs doesn't count, it's not pure lisp. Neither does DrRacket, you need to install entire Racket language for it. Same applies to Edwin which requires installing Scheme to use it. Climacs neither, there are no binaries, it apparently doesn't even work and is basically just a joke. Zmacs is 1980's history, no binaries, no source, can't verify anything, so no.

Requirements in plain English are on picture there, and those requirements translate basically just to "make a usable open-source desktop application that can be distributed like any other desktop application", no miracles required.

This is hilarious. I regret not reading this thread sooner. The lisp faggot bundling the whole interpreter and making the exe 13mb and slow as shit made my sides hurt, but it reminded me of a small cute language I used few years ago when I was just starting with programming.

It is also interpreted and can be "compiled" to .exe by bundling the interpreter with your script, but I was sure as fuck the executables were below 1 MB. So I downloaded the AutoIt and tried to make the editor...

I have to admit, that there's barely any code in it, as the language's GUI library just has an edit box which supports copy-paste, selecting etc. I only had to write little logic to load and save files. Maybe for the next post I'll try to write such editor in C/C++ (but no promises).

Well, my editor can load and save files, is fast, is under 1mb. LISPfags, watch and learn, everyone else, just watch and laugh at the faggots.



This thread is hilarious. They're convinced every anon that doesn't jump on the LISP bandwagon is the OP. They've posted a editor that doesn't even work or come close to meeting the requirements. They've claimed anons are moving goalposts when the requirements have been the same for months. They claim bundling racket is the issue when the OP himself stated it was fine but just lazy. They've resorted to posting emacs implementations that someone else wrote in an attempt to save face.

I was really interested in seeing someone with a LISP background step up to the challenge and make something on par with notepad. I've toyed with LISP myself but I don't claim it to be the end all be all of programming. This simple challenge seemed like the perfect chance for the LISPfags that infest this board to show everyone how simple it is to write an application like this and they've squandered it. At this point it's obvious most of them are LARPers that don't do any programming work at all.

We're halfway into November and half a month past the deadline and they're still in here attempting to save face. The OP doesn't seem to have posted in awhile but I'm sure he'll be back at some point to laugh assuming the BO or vol hasn't banned him. I'm too lazy to check the logs but it is suspect that he hasn't been around in some time.





Can we archive/sticky the entire thread, as an eternal reminder

that LISP users are incompetent fucks who will never make it in

programming/computers in general?


Fucking Chinese characters are the most ridiculous writing system in the world.

>>998556 Though Japanese writing system came from Chinese writing system, Japanese writing system is better than Chinese writing system, 漢字 (hànzì = Kanji). Because Japanese characters (Hiragana and Katakana) are phonograms, but Chinese characters (Hanzi) are ideograms. (Japanese people use Chinese characters, Kanji, also.)

Egyptian hieroglyphs are well-known examples for ideograms.

>implying it would be hard to put some backdoors there unnoticed

>implying firefox and torbrowser (or any browser) is safe

next generation browser should be small and modular. all additional things (javascript, css, layout engine, history) should be modules/components

2. linux is millions of code

>implying it can be audited

>implying it's safe and non-backdoored

>implying you need millions of code for operating system that is just a framework for other software to run

why older operating systems like DOS were simple and small, yet worked?

why isn't linux kernel just small core OS that controls hardware and allows other subsystems on top of it? so you could add GUI subsystem, etc

why templeOS could be small but strong and advanced? because it wasn't made by open source niggers, it was made by WHITE supremacist, racist, by GOD. and he didn't give a shit about code of nigger conduct, he gave a shit about what's important.

why even 20 year old proprietary OS like windows2000 or windows95 is so superior in everyday activities than linux shit? why proprietary music player foobar2000 (made by one person in free time) is so superior to any linux shit player developed by 1000 people?

And it didn't take him this long to write it. He had other versions long ago with different names, but pretty much the same deal.



It didn't take long to write the OS. It took 18 years to refine it.

System error: Japan cybersecurity minister admits he has never used a computer

Yoshitaka Sakurada also seemed confused by the concept of a USB drive when asked in parliament

15 Nov 2018

“It’s unbelievable that someone who has not touched computers is responsible for cybersecurity policies,” said opposition lawmaker Masato Imai.

And his comments provoked a firestorm online.

“Doesn’t he feel ashamed?” wrote one Twitter user.

“Today any company president uses a PC. He doesn’t even know what a USB is. Holy cow.”

Another joked that perhaps Sakurada was simply engaged in his own kind of cybersecurity.

“If a hacker targets this Minister Sakurada, they wouldn’t be able to steal any information. Indeed it might be the strongest kind of security!”

There's a certain limit to how out of touch the recruitment pool for a job can be, even if it is just high level decisionmaking.



The irony is that said anon could be extremely healthy and the pinnacle of health. So using him as health minister for never needing doctors/hospitals/big pharma would be correct as he could give you tips on staying healthy without any of those people/kikes.


Japs have been irrelevant for decades, who cares.



A health minister doesn't need to know how to perform a surgery.

A cybersecurity minister also doesn't need to know how to do computer programming.

>But a person who has never used drugs or gone to hospitals doesn't fit to a health minister.

Also a person who has never used a computer doesn't fit to a cybersecurity minister.

It is better to standardize on a standard earlier than later so you don't have to support all the weird implementation oddities that are in different people's existing implementations.

Before long, it will be too hard for small-time programmers to implement code that uses basic internet protocols. Then you are stuck trusting third party compiled binaries.

I had one of those for economics because it was the standard. The gold one, though. It had a bunch of issues and died in a little more than a year. My previous scientific HP died in two years, but that one was a gift, so I wouldn't have bought it otherwise because it was overpriced. Meanwhile, a cheapo that I bought 5 years ago works perfectly. The buttons aren't that good, but otherwise it's much better than its predecessor. That's why I hate HP. At least in my experience, a lot of the shit that they make is overpriced garbage. They are only still around because for some reason they just happen to be the standard brand for a few things (like their extra Jewish printers). It's definitely not because of the quality.



No, it was done with good old fashioned pen and paper calculations. Slide rule is no good for calculations that need more than 3 digits of precision.



they had human computers. Basically math monkeys. Systems of equations are a pain in the ass to do by hand so they had some math monkey do it.




calculators are mobile

quicker to get out

they start up immediately

battery life last for longer then you need it to

nice physical buttons

easier to enter numbers into

does any calculations you'll need it to do

easily programmable like the old computers were in the 80s (probably the last electronics that are with thebsoftwsre it comes with)

basicsly a Commodore 64 but portable and better in some ways (calculation) and worst in others (graphics)



For me the big draws over an emulator on a phone or computer are the physical buttons and always-ready state.


FX-FD10 Pro, it's the same old Casio they've been making since the 80s but with a backlit screen and buttons and weatherproofing. Same BASIC too, you're limited to 26 single-letter variables A-Z IIRC.


HP started getting cheap with the 12C when Carly took over. The ones from the early '80s are often still going on their original silver-cell batteries thanks to the silicon on sapphire technology. Our low power shit today is faster but draws more power than almost 30 year old tech.

What's Carmack up to these days?


Let's see



He's up to failure



Carmack had nothing to do with nuDoom


Ironically minecraft (making minecraft playable on the vr end), and oculus vr last I heard, it was super sad to see him stand out there like a corpse when he acknowledged that the audience right in front of him literally made his early first person shooters before they were born.


it seems working in walled garden isnt really leading to that many revolutionary products there


Watched his last keynote address at some oculus event and it was disappointing enough that I won't bother with the next one. He used to cover a ton of topics but now they've put a stringent time limit on him and don't allow questions or provide him with a whiteboard. Most of it was about customer experience in VR and a few experiments he did in that area.

Facebook being able to screw up what was a sure thing that's as easy as giving a man a room at a conference hall for an entire day to talk about what he wants at the pace he wants shouldn't surprise anybody.
