SpeedGate is a sport that some AI faggots came up with. I wanted to archive the website and link that here, but the website is generated from JS in real time (because that's apparently necessary to describe a sport,) rendering archiving useless. Eventually, I had to screencap the website 18 times and stitch the parts together in GIMP to create pic related.

The game seems alright for backyard fun; thing is, it really wasn't that much work on the part of the software. The sport was dreamed up by a series of ANNs that were being run on an (((Nvidia))) cluster along with many other possible games and this one was the one that made the most sense (others were games that involved exploding frisbees and underwater freerunning.)

Although the sport seems decently fun, it seems that the creators are complete faggots. I'm not sure about my own opinion of this sport, but it at least seems like a technically impressive feat.

Wrong intention. Wrong action. And worship of an overly simplistic perspective. "Get off your ass instead of talking about it" is absolutely valid, but it's not the end of the question.




Masturbation makes you docile effective immediately, and social media saps your attention and time, take both of those away and you will have a better attention span, more free time, and a will to fuck things (figuratively in this instance)

>>1058122 this helps with the other two, your discipline will also become stronger over time the more you train it, discipline and restrain actually grant you more freedom, as you are no longer enslaved by your desires.

Either you become the master, or you will be the slave, there is no other option.

I do not like smartphones. The whole concept and idea of smartphone seems completely stupid for me. This device is just shitty computer, shitty mobile phone, shitty camera and shitty navigation combined into one shitty and in practice totally useless device.

However smartphones are very popular and I do not know what does it mean. Why there are so popular? Are these devices have any future or there are just temporary fashion?

Note for retards: I enjoy classical mobile phones and even feature phones, these ideas was pretty good, but smartphones are in my opinion mistake

Smartphones are kiketech made for niggers and retards. Full of ads and spyware. Ever notice how every attempt to make a libre hardware phone turns into vaporware? (((they))) don't want you to have it.



>what about mobile businesses?

Laptop works perfectly.

>you give google your consent for them to track you

Maybe you do but I certainly do not.

>my smartphone has 250+gb of music and local media

Great. Again use a laptop. If you're specifically talking about listening to music in your car because of "mobile businesses" then you don't need a smartphone for that. Most automobiles, for almost a decade now, allow you to play music from a usb thumb drive because they have a usb port near the dash and/or in the center console.

>you can root your phone and get rid of google services (not all botnet, but all of the bloat)

You still have all the botnet. You cannot turn on that smartphone at all without loading non-free shit to load the cellular radio. Fun fact, the cellular radios are tied to the CPU so they are always able to be turned on and load their bullshit.

>I travel for work and 90% of my emails are done on my phone.

Good for you but let's not pretend this is only possible with a smartphone. Additionally, just because this is specifically convenient for you, does not mean that it is for others. Consider other solutions whose sole value is not just convenience.

>Just because you're slow at typing doesnt mean it takes me 30 minutes for an email. gmail has a slide to complete function.

I am not slow at typing on a smartphone, I've used swype on every android phone I could. This slide functionality you're referencing, called swype, is not gmail's functionality. It is the functionality of the android operating system. It is one of the keyboards that ships with the OS by default. This just shows how much you know about the technology you use which is obviously very little.

Look, my argument is that if you are doing business where you're constantly on the go, you cant just whip out a laptop and find wifi all the time. it isnt practical. the losing competition does that. If you're in another timezone you don't have the convenience of time to "get back to the office," because you may be ahead or behind your client's. If you need to get something sent by 5pm their time, for example, you can easily miss it if you can only do so on a laptop. without doxxing myself, I have a type of work that pops up sporadically with new projects and clients. Trust me, I don't like being connected all the time, but I have to be to perform well. I can, within the minute, start managing an order or sending documents to someone, among other things. It's basically a laptop, like you mention, except I truly can keep it with me, and it has internet everywhere I go.


as stated, I hate being connected all the time. when I take vacations I leave my phone off or at the hotel or whatever. rfid blocking sleeves would be cool. botnet sucks but you have to manage with the cards you've been dealt.

Which is why they have made laptops that accept sim cards and mobile broadband modems for the last two decades. Business laptops have had them built in for years too. They have even had them as usb plug n play devices for a long time as well.

<is /tech/ next?

(last thread censored by /tech/)

the "hapas are superior to whites" spam attacked the thread and apparently the mods deleted the entire thread.

After the new zealand shooting it's no suprise 8ch is under pressure to remove the ability for users to post anonymously. Jim has caved to the pressure.

The "hapas are superior to whites" spam is a targeted operation to give 8ch a reason to disable tor and range ban every VPN/proxy that pops up. This is not just some random spammer. This is codemonkey himself. Notice how simply requiring a captcha before every single post is not implemented (which would be an effective anti-spam tool), tor is simply blocked and VPN's banned.

/tech/ is now the only major board left to allow tor posting, but as we can already see, codemonkey is already attacking /tech/. How long until the /tech/ mods disable tor too?

Find alternative boards, maintain a list. 8ch's days as a place of free speech are coming to an end.

Something that covers systems programming with C (The C Programming Language is useful as a reference, and/or for simple exercises, but you're going to need something else, plus obviously you'll be reading manpages), some basic assembly, Unix-like stuff, etc.

Computer Systems: A Programmer's Perspective is used these days, but its a big tome of a book and tries to teach assembly via a fake x86 variant, which is kind of awkward. Its still pretty good, but too verbose at times. CMU had videos and lecture slides publicly available IIRC, but I don't know if you can still access them.

It doesn't mean you should immediately be using C for some project or follow Unix program design with all its pitfalls for every program you write, but it will help you understand some very common programs, languages, and systems.



If I want to focus on AI or none meme data science, would C still be useful? I've only seen SQL python and R being frequently used.



there is no better workflow for lisp-family languages than emacs.

Alright /tech/, I have been doing some computering lately and I realized that web browsers can load files from the local file system with this protocol:


Could CIAniggers use this to load files from paths that are always the same and then send them off with JavaScript in order to find out information about you?

Like these:


When I put this:

why would someone use winrar instead of 7zip



Can confirm. I had a summer job with my countrys state media some time ago and they use Google services for EVERYTHING. It was disgusting. Every workstation was running Windows 7 and they did everything through chrome and Google docs. Could have just used chrome os tbh. They paid for Microsoft office but never used it. Even some of the video editors they used ran in chrome and worked with assets off a server.



The good thing is that if Google ever collapses, many lugenpresse companies will be out of commission for a while as they scramble to replace their workflow.

You will understand once you're actually employed.



Haven't used it in a while but isn't Geany a glorified text editor?



An IDE is an integrated development environment and the first word say it all. It just works and you can hand an IDE to anyone and have him up and running in the company ecosystem within an hour or so. When working in a team the lowest common denominator will be used, and usually that means the tool you can train the average Pajeet to use.

Now compare this to Vim: first you have to learn the editor, then you have to set up your configuration, install a Language Server Protocol plugin, install the language server, install a compiler, install an auto completion plugin, install libraries, get familiar with the command line and probably a bunch of other thins I have forgotten about.

Don't get me wrong, once you have done all these things and you have a tailor-made working environment you are pretty much unstoppable, but it takes an upfront investment to get to that point. Personally I wouldn't want it any other way, but there are many people who just want to be told "press these buttons in that order". You can find plenty of tutorial on "how to turn Vim/Emacs in an IDE for X", which misses completely the point of these editors.

I used to be an IDE user, but I got frustrated by them. They only support the languages they are made for and if your project is slightly out of the ordinary you will end up fighting your tool instead of the problem. That was one of the reasons I learned to use the shell and Vim, now I can organize my projects any way I want to and use whatever tools I need. I can sed, grep or awk during the build process, I can use any programming language I want, I can organize my code however I want, and there are no magical "project" files that need a dedicated program to process.


It's only enough space if you think that having one window open at a time is acceptable.



>not having two screens

Weak tbqh. You can configure your IDE not to have superfluous side windows and just cram them at the bottom of the screen, though.
