There was a story involving a pedo site on tor which the FBI was running for a few months.

Before the FBI took over the server, apparently the site admin(s) were talking to each other and planning to meet up. The FBI was monitoring them, but suddenly one of them started driving to the other's place, that or they both started moving to the same location. The FBI didn't know that they were talking through tox and when they caught them they were raping some girl. The FBI wasn't even aware they were using tox, and that's where the pedos we're planning the meet up.

How secure something is doesn't matter if no one is trying to crack it. Even better if they don't know it exists. Of course now they're aware of it, but considering how bureaucracy work it might be some time before some serious effort towards monitoring tox. Especially if the userbase is still relatively small and pedos are using technologies whose exploits they're already familiar with.


>This one just sounds like a scam

There was actually someone on zeronet doing the same thing. Apparently it was a "Social experiment" to create a darknet market.

Though I agree that most of these don't seem real.



>Valid data for not using a product

=not a shill

Didn't know Tox worked like that. Will scratch it off my list of chat programs to use for that day I find a friend to chat with.



The Internet is full of pedophiles and yet, nobody says the risk of meeting pedophiles on the Internet causes alphabet soup.

>Does the BMC act as a sort of rescue system too?

If the main OS halts or otherwise shits itself then the BMC acts as a sort of backup SSH so power cycle the system and recover it.


>Is there a list of video cards it is compatible with? I've heard not all drivers will work with POWER.

I briefly tried installing the OpenCL/RoCM drivers for the WX7100 but the AMD repos only have x86 builds (Ubuntu only comes with the AMD display drivers), I should be able to just build them form source though. Nvidia has Power9 builds of CUDA available but those are proprietary.


>He could just use nvidia with nouveau supported hardware if he wanted libre software for his propietary hardware GPU.

nouveau is awful, also it doesn't allow the GPU to be used for compute which is what he is interested in


>Keep in mind that 32-core 2nd gen Threadrippers are coming in few months.

They still only have 64MB of cache so its not like you can run any more mining threads.

>For ~$1500

[citation needed]

>at least 50% higher clocks than that EPYC

The 7601 is clocked at 3.2GHz, the 32 core Threadrippers are only anounced up to 3.4GHz.

>More if you're willing to overclock.

I can overclock as well.

AMD's pricing habits and leaked listings.



I still don't fully understand what ROCm is. It seems to be related to heterogeneous computing, but how does it work. Is it a bunch of libraries, compilers?



>supports up to 2TB RAM

Fucking hell!



While I'd love to have a Libre software supported GPU with full 3D acceleration, it probably isn't possible for any card yet.

Nvidia is still woefully incompetent and malicious with supporting Nouveau and care only about the proprietary driver at this point.

AMD is at least slightly better supported, but there are still huge problems with proprietary firmware in each card.

I've only ever seen Intel have good free software support without proprietary dependency.

I see distros like Void, Arch and Gentoo get recommended far too much here. Most /tech/ users are either people who just need a web browser, programmers of small projects or a mix in between. Most people here don't need 90% of the stuff modern distros provide them! The solution?


Reasons for Slackware:

-No dependency management. Normal users don't spend their time installing, uninstalling and generally messing around with package management. This might be helpful for devs but normal users don't need it! KISS

-Simple init. Again, normal users don't need advanced functions like process supervision (advanced at least). Again, useful for devs and sysadmins, not regular users or programmers! (small project devs at least)

-Stable as fuck! Take a look at https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/. Most questions you see aren't people asking help because of a problem with their init or package management, it's things like asking how to manage stuff and get shit done

> The strongest legacy of Lisp in the Julia language is its metaprogramming support. Like Lisp, Julia represents its own code as a data structure of the language itself. Since code is represented by objects that can be created and manipulated from within the language, it is possible for a program to transform and generate its own code. This allows sophisticated code generation without extra build steps, and also allows true Lisp-style macros operating at the level of abstract syntax trees. In contrast, preprocessor "macro" systems, like that of C and C++, perform textual manipulation and substitution before any actual parsing or interpretation occurs. Because all data types and code in Julia are represented by Julia data structures, powerful reflection capabilities are available to explore the internals of a program and its types just like any other data.

That's good. Nim and Rust have similar capabilities, far more sophisticated than the C/C++ preprocessor.



Rust is probably too low level, but I wonder if Nim will end up being a major competitor to Julia?



They were only slightly influenced by lisp, which is a good thing.



Metaprogramming is pure cancer and the part of a C++ project most likely to go malignant and kill it.



Okay, I just started using Julia the other day and it's great. Easily my new favorite language!

blackchain is actually a petri dish and a race to whoever gains the most power and probably it was experiment gone wrong but meme currency is pretty useless in a higher sense.

C++ is among the worst programming experiences I've ever had, the touted advantages of using it are exactly what is making it difficult to use because they are implemented so horrendously.

Why is inheritance so messed up just so you can have multiple inheritance (i.e: where's my super)? Why is the documentation unclear on basic stuff (I just want to replace an item in a list dammit)? Why does the compiler randomly decide it doesn't want to upcast? Why is it that the only way I can solve this cyclical dependency is by putting the actual method lines away from the original class, making my code difficult to read?

This language is actual trash and you should be shot if you use it.

Using Tor on one tab doesn't affect other ordinary or private tabs.

>Chinese-designed "Dhyana" x86 processors based on AMD's Zen microarchitecture are beginning to surface from Chinese chip producer Hygon. The processors come as the fruit of AMD's x86 IP licensing agreements with its China-based partners and break the decades-long stranglehold on x86 held by the triumvirate of Intel, AMD and VIA Technologies.

>AMD's announcement in 2016 that it had established a joint venture in China to develop processors was surprising, but it yielded a much needed $293 million cash infusion (in payments based on delivery dates) for the then-struggling company, which had operated at a loss for the prior six quarters.

>As part of the licensing agreement, AMD established a joint venture (JV) in China called the Tianjin Haiguang Advanced Technology Investment Co. Ltd. (THATIC) and agreed to license its x86 and SoC IP for chip development. THATIC consists of AMD and both public and private Chinese companies, including the Chinese Academy of Sciences that is heavily influenced by the Chinese government.

>And thus, AMD's licensing of the x86 IP stays within the legal boundaries. According to the agreement, the final products can only be sold within China's borders. That opens up a huge opportunity for AMD via royalties due to the exploding China data center market, but potentially serves a blow to Intel due to the Chinese governments' influence: China has invested heavily in native chip producers through its Made In China 2025 initiative and also offers incentives and other measures to prop up domestic chip production.

AMD managed to get around the x86 licensing restrictions, Intel truly BTFO since they still can't sell server CPUs to China.

I've never experimented with hardware video encoding until now, and my findings are that it's complete and utter dogshit. Yes, it can encode at speeds higher than 1K fps, but the result is always a larger file. It doesn't matter what preset I use. None of them compare to CPU placebo. The reason I bring this up is because AV1 absolutely must have hardware accelerated encoding to be usable. Is this simply Nvidia's implementation for x264 and x265 which are shit, or is all hardware encoding this poor?

Still not much support for hwenc on AMD + linux, is there?



VAAPI can do hardware encoding and decoding through AMD GPUs. which means anything with VAAPI support has it.



Anecdote: My Radeon 5670HD with the radeon KMS driver does tear-free decodes with mpv --vo=vaapi.


Is AV1 really an "open" standard if only Google and Twitch end up with a usable, proprietary encoder that they won't share?
