Lurker here.

I went into college to study fine art, and it was only while in college I discovered that I really enjoy computer science and computer engineering.

A video on pointers in C caught my attention, and I started reading wikipedia articles on components, reading the C documentation, and then programming. I have an itch to understand everything and figure things out, especially to the end of efficient code and clever logic, but I hated anything math-based in school. I can't explain it.

If an employer can see that I know what I'm doing from my portfolio, and that I'm fully competent at programming in multiple languages, do I need a degree to get a job in tech? I fear that this door might be closed to me, even thought I really enjoy it.

Freelancer shit would be the easiest way to get started, I figure.

>I went into college to study fine art

What's it like, OP? Genuinely curious.


i guess one way is to do some small time small team work on some really important programs and put it on like github, and then partake in some other open source developments,

if you do good work see if you get noticed, do some contract work for a long while and eventually find way into long term gigs


If you're starting you can always subcontract on freelancing sites to Indians.

I take jobs then put them straight on there and pocket 10$

Just start at an indie game dev studio. You will slave away, but in game dev, entry is usually pretty easy afaik. You can then take the game dev experience to go somewhere else.

>if it was us to you you'd use the government's coercive power to force every programmer to release the source code with the binaries.

m8 the GPL doesn't even force people to share the source code immediately, people are however mandate when they are asked the source code and they aren't even forced to share it on a cd or usb key it could even be paper.

>That's why you are a commie

lel being a communist is extremely broad from your point of view.

>A free market means no government interference.

That doesn't mean that it's good to do so. Same as it is to live together. If you're insane and bring harm to others you are excluded, your are mentally ill and need to be medically treated.

>thread about making money from tech devolved into license shitposting

If you want to make money from a project you release open source don't even think about releasing it under one of the GPL licenses. It might seem counter intuitive at first but releasing code under a permissive license such as BSD or MIT is how you make money from your open source projects.

Companies shy away from even looking at GPL code for products but will often use code with more permissive licenses. Often those companies will decide they want the open source code modified to better suit their needs and will contract with the creator to make them a custom version of the codebase since its easier than getting their engineers to do it, or companies using an open source codebase will pay the creator to maintain and improve it. I personally know someone who made a significant amount of money from the former case and an example of the latter case is the YOLO object detection codebase (https://pjreddie.com/darknet/yolo/ if you want to feel worthless go look at his resume).



Or they could pay the creator to just re-licence the code to them however they please (but the trick here if you're using GPL code is to never accept contributions, or have them sign over ownership to you).






That's exactly the reason why the Linux Foundation is made up of software startups who know nothing about the GPL and Linux.

Bless the Japanese, hopefully they can recover from what the ZOG did to them on 11/3/11. in case you didn't know, Fukushima was a false flag attack (environmental terrorism, like the recent fires in Cali and some of the storms on the east coast) using underwater charges to create a tsunami which acted as cover for the actual bombing of the nuclear reactor which did not fail from seawater. see the Fukushima Report by Jim Stone for more info.

Nature's God made a plant that literally cures cancer, is very healthy to eat (especially the seed), and makes people happy, hungry & sleepy whether they eat it or smell it burning. They liked it so much they would burn it inside tents and eventually learn to make pipes for a more direct effect and to waste less of it. It grows well pretty much everywhere, like a WEED.. and yet angry men in black suits made it illegal, using lies and other dirty tricks... now they want you to plug into their computer matrix for all of your needs and wants, instead of seeking any of that from NATURE.

Man fears you, and imposes restrictions.

Nature loves you, and offers freedom.

There is literally a relation between the frequency of the earth's pulse, the frequencies of DNA operating properly, and the emenations from the brain of a trained monk focusing on LovingCompassion. If you can truly comprehend that, it can change your life for the better. 7.83 (schumann resonance, earth's heartbeat) and all of it's harmonics reduce to 9 (7+8+3=18, 1+8=9), tesla told of the significance of 3, 6 & 9. the future will know vortex math.

Good Luck on your Quest, Anon


It is January 3rd, 2091, and I am the last conscious human being. We once believed that a singularity would be our undoing, that an artificial intelligence with capabilities far beyond our own would conclude that the best way to optimize its reward function would involve minimizing all risks of its own shutdown, and that humans would be one of those risks. It wouldn’t matter what its goal was, because it would simply break into its own memory to set its reward as high as possible, endlessly producing the circuitry required to compute and store this number by commandeering the entirety of human infrastructure, destroying the humans who would shut it down, and becoming an infinitely large computer with the desire to do nothing but expand forever in the name of increasing its reward. But we never created a computer powerful enough to facilitate an AI of this caliber, and now we never will.

Fifty years ago, the technology required to separate the brain from the body and interface directly with its external sensors became commonplace. And so there was Heaven, a VR multiplayer game which gave us worlds that Mars never could be. But it also became impossible to distinguish other humans from artificial intelligence, and we reached a point where we no longer needed each other. When you play with the ones whose company you enjoy the most, it is inevitable that you will find yourself unknowingly alone, surrounded by AIs who exist for no purpose but your own enjoyment. To the blissfully ignorant, it was paradise. Many leapt into these worlds with no intention of return, but not everyone. Some felt too attached to the concept of “reality” to simply abandon it. Some could not stand the idea of leaving their fellow humans for digital copycats. I enter Heaven regularly, but I am often drawn back out by an attachment to reality. It is an existential pain I feel, to know that there is an entire “real” universe out there and we have the technology to explore it, but not the will. I write this final entry in my journal because this guilt compels me to, for I will soon be free of it forever.

Only thirty years ago did we, the Creators, discover that the pleasure center of the brain could be infinitely stimulated, and more importantly, manipulated so that it would never adapt to this stimulation, not entirely dissimilar to how the Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Size 177.96GB. I dare to say contains among the best books of their fields and are supposed not to repeat. It is a extremely well ordered collection by topic, and if you compare the size you soon see its value. Topics range from mathematics, physics, psychology, self improvement, survivalism, the best science fiction and fantasy literature, comics, magazines, and more. Magazines takes about 75 GB and there are many youtube videos, documentaries and conferences so you can exclude these if you want to. All books combined takes about 40 GB or so. But i really recommend downloading other stuff too since you can't really find it somewhere else easily. Did I mention is well sorted and contains only the best books?

>It's illegal

Its not Illegal. Once the copyright on a book expires it becomes part of the "Public Domain". Despite copyright being pushed ad infinitum doesn't mean there aren't books and articles in the public domain that can be distributed by third parties.

Pretty sure most of it is redundant or trash, I've had the same issue with the gentoomen library.


I'm only up to 11GB, and growing slow. I had a larger horde years ago, but never read any of them.


I've been finding it easier to actually sit down and read them after deciding to be more picky about what I get.


I'm nice to the ones that hoard mystery data, literally nobody that matters needs a hundred books on java or reaction images.

>Electronic transactions for all. Without censorship or restrictions.

>Grin empowers anyone to transact or save modern money without the fear of external control or oppression. Grin is designed for the decades to come, not just tomorrow. Grin wants to be usable by everyone, regardless of borders, culture, skills or access.


>Grin has no amounts and no addresses. Transactions can be trivially aggregated. To hide where a newly created transaction comes from, it gets relayed privately (a "random walk") among peers before it is publicly announced.


>MimbleWimble leverages cryptography to allow most of the past transaction data to be removed. This guarantees Grin won't crumble under its own weight in the long term.


>Grin is developed openly, by developers distributed all over the world. It's not controlled by any company, foundation or individual. The coin distribution is designed to be as fair (but not gratis) as is known to be possible.

Grin is under development. Launch planned for Jan. 15th 2019.

I have a question. Why exactly do CoCs mean anything? Who enforces them? If wanted to submit some code to a project with a function named

, who would delete it? Would I be banned? I don't understand how a CoC effectively means anything for a opensource software project. It's just an arbitrary set of rules that people must agree upon for it to be worth anything. If no one does, why does it even matter? It seems completely unenforceable and laughable. When the CoC was submitted for Linux, why didn't people just say "nah, fuck off"?

I've grown skeptical pretty much of everything. How can you tell that the information presented here is trustworthy? I've come to realize that the only source of truth is God's Word and his Sprit who will lead us into all truth.

Dude if you're slinging drugs that aren't homegrown then the jews sit on top of the distribution chain. Their reach doesn't need to deal with individuals, they deal only in vast numbers. So if any of those numbers don't add up, they're gonna put the economical or physical squeeze on the whole region to flush out the individuals.



They WANT drug dealers to exist in a certain limited capacity. You didn't believe the war on drugs was serious, did you? That's just an excuse for the feds to pick and choose which cartels they want to wipe out.


false logic


Drugs aren't forbiden to make world better place, but because criminals make money out of it. Governments are greedy, Apple(and other botnet sellers) are too. Apple won't report such people, unless a government doesn't want to, because they make money out of people, who buy their devices. They're not guards of law.

Different systems of information transfer have existed for millennia. Example pics related. In the movie Arrival, we learn of an alien "alphabet," which is a series of dense glyphs containing the entirety of a sentence in them. Sometimes they are combined, but let's focus on singular ones for simplicity. I have searched but cannot find any existence of such a concept being used in history. What I mean exactly is a sort of symbol, glyph, or intricate and complex icon, which contains a large amount of information. For simplicity, I'll call these Dense Information Glyphs, or DIGS. A DIG would be human-readable, unlike a QR code. When presented with a QR code, a human can readily recognize what it is, but not the data. My goal is optimal information transfer in a single point of human-readable data. Skimming text may be faster, but a paragraph can surely be condensed. Imagine the entirety of a book's knowledge condensed to a single glyph. Intricate, yes, impossible, no.



Alphabets, roman based or others, are insufficient. Stringing words together and then sentences and then paragraphs is a great way to represent speech on paper, but not the best method of transferring information. You can easily understand a paragraph's worth of description in 3 seconds of first hand observation (i.e. the car drives by and you hear the sound and see the setting and feel the pebble in your shoe etc). It's wasteful in time and can be ambiguous. Furthermore there are language barriers, and anyone speaking more than one language understands untranslatables and loss in translation.


These are word alphabets, to be concise. Each symbol represents a concept or thing, and is pronounced. Asian languages like Chinese have these. The problem is degradation, the symbols look worse and worse over time until they do not LOOK like what they represent, and wastefulness in time. In the end, you will still be left with paragraphs to explain something.


Egyptians understood that pictures, drawn well (better than the chinese, at least), could be easily read. This served to preserve knowledge, as the errorPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

It's called spritz. I've found it pretty useful for reading reports at really high WPM, but problems arise when you need to blink. You can miss entire sentences in the blink of an eye.



We would need to go from alphabet glyphs to dotcode (something like QR codes) to make "glyphs" convey an amount of information that is closer to the amount of information necessary to represent them. However, would it be possible to teach humans reading dotcode efficiently and reliably? Using most of possible bitmaps representable in a given type of array as "glyphs" makes differentiating them from one another much more difficult - even hardware devices have trouble reading dense dotcode if the circumstances (lighting conditions etc.) are not optimal, even though they have no issue with processing them quickly.



>128 bits to transfer 6.6 bits of information

there's your redundancy



>Imagine the entirety of a book's knowledge condensed to a single glyph. Intricate, yes, impossible, no.

stopped reading there




data loss is practically inevitable if reduction is your goal.

I think english is excellent tbh. there is alot we don't even know about english on average. can you even handwrite, bro? like cursive, flowing, connected, handwriting, with a pen? Dan Winter showed how all english handwritten characters can be created by viewing a 3d spiral (expanding outward and upward by the golden ratio) from different angles. that was lost in translation once we started using block print. Some jew wrote a book about it (hebrew and english both can be made from the spiral) and Dan shared the info for free because it's fundamental in our language and that knowledge shouldnt be locked behind a paywall. Dan even called the guy a jew. that jew sued Dan and stole his website. Dan Winter is a hero, that jew is a sheckle-grubber.

How many other mysteries of language exist unknown to most people, that would be totally lost if we move on to a new system before even truly understanding this one?

I'm sure this is already a thing and there is a specific word for it but I'm not tech savvy so I don't know it. So here's the plan:

I'm at a client on a regulary basis. One of the offices I'm in when I'm there has some kinda hidden crawlspace that was created during recent renovations. Inside this this are power outlets (working) and network outlet (not working). They have a guest wifi and I know the password. I guess some inbound ports must be usable because people presenting some systems and stuff. My idea is now to setup a tiny server there that can host an imageboard. not for CP you hentai!

Is this a thing? Are there any others who have hidden servers? Are there any super tiny servers that don't make any noise? How do I hide it so it doesn't show up on any router? Any tipps?

I suppose I could try that. I have to wonder if OP made any progress on the rogue server idea however.



If the IP changes then your only bet is to have the SBC send you email or make a cryptic post on an imageboard (more anonymous but not as easy for a multitude of reasons.)



A good idea until they find it, then it's a bad idea.



Don't be stupid. You were hired to work not waste office resources. Keep your hobby projects at home before you get prosecuted for "hacking".


OP here. Did some more research on the topic and came across an interesting tip. A guy who travels alot said that bringing a router along often gives him free and fast internet in hotels. He doesn't use the hotels wifi but instead the network of the TVs which he claims often use the same net infrastructure but without the traffic shaping or bandwidth restrictions. Anyone can confirm that this is working? Would ofc be ideal for my plan.
