I'm somewhat new to programming, dabbled for years but never really got sufficiently motivated to make anything big. I'm having a look at making a Roguelike, and I'm struggling to see how you could avoid OOP entirely for this kind of thing and end up with something more elegant. If I represent a level as a 2D Array of Objects, any operation related to changing or checking states is piss simple, and I can do something similar with creatures/items, etc. I don't have to go nuts with inheritance since I can just have a base game object with x and y coordinates, then tile, item and creature objects that inherit from that with the parameters they need, then each individual type of these inheriting from those, which results in a linear inheritance structure that doesn't shit the place up and become impossible to debug.

How exactly would you approach this without OOP? Or is the constant screeching about OOP a self reinforcing shitflinging contest between Pajeets who abuse it and contrarian autists?

You could literally represent the level as a 2D array of anything. Why does it have to be objects? I'm writing a 2D platformer game myself and I had to choose how everything is stored at the bit level to have the amount of players and objects with physics I'm trying to support.

>>968558

OOP in any way anyone uses it today doesn't solve any problem period. At best it gives you abstract data types, which you can do much better with ML. Literally 99% of OOP use cases is just so you can write cow.moo(), which is utterly meaningless to the point where you might as well just call 0x43256712 or moo(cow) or gcow=cow; moo(). It's almost as if OOP was designed by autists to trick themselves into thinking the English words they type out do what they have in their heads. In fact that would explain the entire state of the software industry.

Hey clueless reddit spacer, the issue is the federated moderation, what controls they have, if hashtag searches can be censored, and how safe servers are from attack. When I hear things like,

>Mastodon aims to make ethical design choices to combat the misuse of social media.

and realize by "misuse" they don't mean the censoring of non-left wing views but that non-left wing views weren't sufficiently censored I get worried about how they've engineered that.

That's the nature of social networks. Always assume that anything you put into the public will be archived forever. Even this post could turn up in some archive a century from now.

If you want to have a profile, then make it pseudonymous, and if your persona gets compromised throw it away and start all over under a new name. Never use the internet for personal communication, ever. Just use that pseudonym for shitposting and stuff.

If people really want to talk to the real you, they will find a way. Sure, you won't be notfied whenever someone takes a photo of their vegan soy sandwich, but do you really need that information?

Too many people don't seem to understand that the internet is not a private space. You can make an off-color joke among friends, call your black friend a nigger, and everyone will know it's a joke. But on the internet if someone wants, they will dig out the same joke and use it against you.

holy shit, do you live in some sort of bubble isolated from the real world? In shithole countries in Latin America, there are people who go to slums and take niglets' ID away and/or load them up in trucks like cattle so they will vote a certain candidate (google "puntero político" and "clientelismo"). In other cases they'll offer free shoes, mattresses, or money for voting a certain way.

A radio in Argentina was caught broadcasting that they'd give free government issued IDs and welfare money to Paraguayans so they would re-elect the current governor the Formosa province for the 5th time in a row. Hell, even the dead 'vote' from time to time.

This also happens in certain parts of America. Our leftists got so much mileage out of it back in the 20s/30s that it even got a name: the political machine.

Blazechan

The blazing fast imageboard engine

---

Current version: v0.12.0

Changelog

The "No update since 'Smas" Update

Many, many things changed.

- The panel application was merged into the frontend. This marks the

beginning of the major refactor that will happen to Blazechan, making

its parts fully replacable.

- A new settings system has been created, which uses database-backed

setting schemas to control board and site settings.

- Many board settings were added. Some are currently non-functional,

but those are expected to be fixed within a few days.

- New capabilities were added to extensions which allows them to now

add their own board and site settings, and extensions can now hook

right before and after a post is created to hook their own database

models to posts.

- Reporting posts was added.

- Blazechan now uses Django 2.0.

- A new document caching system is used, which is application-level.

Varnish has been obsoleted and this new Redis-backed cache is used.

- Some unit tests were added to test the permission system. These will

be extended to test more of the software in the future.

- Thread Updates. This uses WebSocket channels to transfer updates in

realtime.

- A huge ton of bug fixes. Thanks to everyone who found them.

Upcoming Features

- Full Tor support, with .onion redirection

- Theming, User CSS and User JS support

- Purging old boards with no contentPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I got this book today because I usually like learning useless memelangs (i.e. OCaml, Jabashit, R, C#, FORTH, etc.) because there usually is some novel idea to be found somewhere. Now I do realize that Rust introduces the Ownership principle and some other interesting things, but this is about my experience with this book in particular. I am on page 56 so I may very well be wrong, but this has been my experience so far

i read the pages it referenced, he just explained UTF-8 chars and how Rust does strings and how strings are too complicated for most people according to him (projection much)

I swear it was worded similarly to this

>"Compile errors don't mean you're bad, I swear!!!"

>"Other languages don't do this!"

Most languages that aren't Python, Jabashit or a C clone have this

inb4 most languages are C clones

Like I said I'm 50 pages in and the author is driving me nuts. I already read a shitton of books on specific languages and CompSci, but god this guy is obnoxious. I read some FUD about one of the authors being an antifag and both the authors being incompetent docs authors but I wasn't able to confirm much. Will this get any better or should I just accept Rust is CoCed Millenial shit like FreeBSD and move on? I actually like the language itself better than C, I just find most material unbearable to read.

The thing is, the Q_rsqrt function is readable, if you already know what it is doing. It is not unreadable because it is obfuscated, it is unreadable because it requires a LOT of a priori knowledge about how the computer represents numbers. The algorithm itself is difficult to understand, and writing it in COBOL isn't going to fix that.

In addition, most people can quickly pick up that the max function is WRONG. While it doesn't explicitly state what happens if the numbers are equal, no sane person would consider 5 to be the correct answer for that case.

>This whole thing was related to AWS-generated secrets. Those of us whose AWS secrets didn't have a "/" in this couldn't replicate the problem. Thus it was a configuration-space issue rather than something visible to all.

>There was a straightforward workaround, "generate new credentials", so it wasn't a blocker.

>That related issue, HADOOP-13287, is actually highlighting a regression caused by the fix for HADOOP-3733. In the process for allowing URLs to contain "/" symbols, we managed to break the ability to use "+" in them.

>The regression was caught because the HADOOP-3733 patch included some tests which played with the tester's real credentials. Fun problem: writing tests to do insecure things which don't leak secrets in logs and assert statements.

>HADOOP-13287 is not an example of "there are nearby problems" so much as "every bug fix moves the bug", something noted in Brook's "the mythical man month" in his coverage of IBM OS patches.

>And again, this is a c-space problem, it was caught because Chris had + in his secret.

>we had "/" in the secret is because the problem only arises if you put your AWS secrets in the URL itself, as s3a://AWSID:secret-aws-key@bucket

I think I'll try finding stuff like this soon to pad my resume and learn about some tools I've been using recently.

Seriously, what's stopping the CIA from implanting their own package maintainers, bribing some or even making their own distro?

Imagine how beneficial it'd be for them to own a Debian package maintainer. Just like that, they could implant a package with a malicious patch into almost every Debian based distro, and there's one that's of particularly great interest to them, namely Tails. But even if they don't own a Debian package maintainer, if they had a man in the right position on some popular Debian based distro like Mint or Ubuntu, that would still be extremely beneficial.

Imagine if some newer, smaller distro was actually started and is literally owned by the CIA. Like, some distro that would be appealing to the kind of people who visit this place (because those are the types of people that would probably be quite appealing for them to monitor), like some hot new systemd free distro or free as in freedom distro or something. Like Artix, antiX, Hyperbola, Obarun, MX Linux or some Devuan based distro something.

Less likely, but possible is Void, but even if they hadn't started Void themselves, Void is starving for package maintainers, imagine how easy it'd be for them to push their man in.

Again, less likely, but possible is Mint, I mean Ubuntu and lots of other distros were filling the same niche, Mint wasn't really necessary (which is why it wasn't very likely for "civilians" to start Mint, like nobody really needed it, so why would people waste their effort), and by that time it was obvious that Linux was the OS used by people concerned about privacy and it was still not too late to start a distro that could one day be the most popular normalfag distro, so they could've seen an opportunity to tweak GNOME a bit to make it look like windows and pitch that to the masses and use their CIA powers to spread it and popularize it; that way, they'd have a popular distro to use to monitor most of the tech illiterate people who switched to Linux for privacy for whatever reason.

And how the fuck can anyone trust Fedora is beyond me, I mean RedHat is literally in cahoots with the NSA, imagine how easy it would be for them to put their people in the right positions in the Fedora project through RedHat.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Funtoo is what Gentoo should've been if it wasnt for too much elitism and internal squabbling by the Gentoo team.

And since SystemD isn't yet a kernel dependency in Debian, bootstrapping with a Debian kernel makes sense since you can get a system up and running quicker.

>compile this shot

No, fuck you. You're the dev, I expect you to release your crappy stuff in a format that is ready-out-the-box. I do not want to spend 3 days fruitlessly trying to figure out why your shitty makefile keeps throwing errors. I mean, FFS! Did you even TEST your makefile?

Meanwhile on Windows, "it just werks" and you triple niggers wonder why everybody uses Windows. News flash: we tolerate Microsoft's bullshit because your bullshit fucking sucks. B-b-but muh platform differences! Fuck off retard, if Microsoft can force all platforms to play nice, so can you.

what is the point? this post show exactly what devuan is intented to be: a systemd-free debian. So it is normal to see that the packages are entirely from debian removing the ones dependent of poteringD

That people say you can't use Debian without systemd as init and that Devuan has had to make huge changes to 'thousands' of packages to change that. Turns out both are untrue - it's almost nothing more than logos and it doesn't let you do anything you couldn't already do on Debian.

Every change falls into one of these categories:

- changing logos, themes, distro name, URLs, email addresses, gpg keys, tooling

- removal of optional systemd support (libsystemd0)

- unnecessary replacement of Lennart's other projects

- modifying xbill to xlennart

- additions of personal software projects

I don't see a reason to remove optional systemd support, but if that's your thing, that's about the only value it has. I'd rather be able to choose what init I use just like any other program.

Remind me how well that went for OpenSSL?

Firefox is not exactly trustworthy, and their extensive deployment of shill tactics isn't helping.

This is how Samsung advertises their Galaxy 9/9+. Wow, it's like /b/ all over again had a baby with Reddit, lol. What's going on with companies? Soros talking about having the Internet controlled by 2020. Microsoft going SAAS, Windows already uploading images, sound, recordings, files, screenshots and keyboard input selling it to NSA, now Microsoft uploading all files to the cloud.

Feeling the same way that I feel, has been a concept for eternity. The only difference here is in the efficiency, in the same way people here misuse the quote feature.

Yes, because all Cloud (TM) servers are running Linux (TM).

It depends on the context but yeah, generally.

It's the same concept, relating with other people.
