This is NOT Okay

c/c++ has 4 different main compilers that all work together. intel, gnu gcc, apple llvm, microsofts whatever the fuck they use.

the fact that there are multiple implementations is no excuse



javascript actually is not backwards compatible. neither is html. they introduce features all the time that don't work at all in old browsers. and your code just fails to work without clear errors.



If I write C code that's only going to be seen by me then it's fine if it only compiles under GCC. I only need to compile it with GCC.

If I write javascript that's only going to be used on my own website then it's not fine if it only works in my own browser. It needs to be interpreted over and over again.


If Javascript had to be backwards compatible with all browsers ever, it would NEVER mature or progress as a language and would in all likelihood degenerate into a bloated mess like Java did.



I should also point out that HTML and CSS suffer from the same problems, and infact the single biggest culprit of browser compatibility problems isn't Javascript or HTML, but CSS. If you think interpretation of Javascript was bad, wait until you look into interpretation of supposedly static rules like CSS where shit like transform(-50px) makes something go up in one browser and down in another browser.

Persistent site, or board-wide, IDs allow for faggots like yourself to go trawling around the entire board finding people who disagree with you so you can sperg out in every thread. You may as well join a fucking forum at that point.

Thread-persistent IDs make somewhat more sense, but even then, you're going to have limp-wristed homosexuals getting worked up about independent posts because that same user said something mean somewhere prior in the thread.

Every website you have visited with Facebook logged in.

Every website you have purchased goods using a FB log in with.

Every Meme video you have liked casually while giggling.

Every micro-targeting company, from YouTube sluts to hosts like Steve Colbert.

Every game or app you used with Facebook or liked.

Every company you have liked in your local community allowed others to piggy back their target data.

This is the Internet digital fingerprint. This is how they know you better than you know you. A single click on your web journey created a whole universe of ads for your next set of minutes. An innocent email register at a social community website turned into a spawn of 10 ad companies that target you for your interest in Android software.

Watch one vice video, like one vice video, congrats, you are on Vice World Payroll. Vice France/USA/Germany/China/Japan/UK/etc. goes all over your ad info.

They used to say that our value online was 23 dollars. Welcome to the chaos of bots and algorithms, where the mastermind nets in $1,000 worth of targeted ads on you. Every like you give back is a feedback to their ad system to target you again with a new company.

People that play social game apps, like the average "MY LIFE IS UNIQUE, EXPRESS YOU WHO YOU ARE, TWO PEOPLE WON'T SHARE THIS, PROVE THEM WRONG! LIKE AND FOLLOW MY FACEBOOK PAGE LOL XDDD!!"-post and unironically shares it to their families and friends making them second hand ad potentials when their timeline goes dry, people who watch cat viral videos and actually likes them or worse: comments on them with their friends' names in tags so they can get more of advertisement; are all doomed to be worth millions of dollars worth of digital value. This was the end game, the one that kicked the bucket. When is FaceBook country coming? World's largest population and will soon be recognized as the secret demographic that shows exactly who each and everyone is.

Let's talk kernels, /tech/!

So let's start this off with a common argument i've seen from BSDfags and some others. "The Linux Kernel is bloated!"

But honestly, I don't see how that can be possible. I'll give ya the coreutils. Those should definitely be reworked, or better yet, fully replaced by busybox. But the kernel HAS to be as big as it is in order to have driver support for all the hardware that it can run on. If it was smaller, it wouldn't be able to have the amazing level of compatibility that it does, far superior to *BSD, and only beaten by Windows due to manufacturers being kikes.

I mean, if we're talking about microkernels, that's a bit different because you'd want the kernel to be as small as possible and all the drivers to be in userland, but for any monolithic kernel, it makes no sense to start crying bloat when there's a perfectly acceptable reason for it.

https://www.twitch.tv/revisionparty (sorry, no "better" stream providers AFAIK, use livestreamer or streamlink to watch)


Revision is a big, traditional easter demoparty with competitions for all kinds of demos and multimedia on all kinds of platforms, including Commodore Amigas and 64s.

Basically, demoparties are computer creativity meetings/competitions, where many programmers, musicians and graphicians have fun, socialize and show off their skills.

The first compos are beginning shortly, including the PC 64 kilobyte competition which I highly recommend everyone to see!

Discuss, ask questions, and comment the compo entries here.

I was doing mental math, but yes you are right. I'm saying the anon there was technically right in saying it was less than 1 percent.

The larger demo competitions are 64kilobytes. That is tiny! Yet for these guys they make it into so much. It is something amazing.




I meant the perfomance not the size... not every pc demo is 64kb. Obviously for a size production you wouldn't use sdl...



More over, I said one could use SDL to have a portable demo, which would mean that the size of the library would not be included (unless you want to include all versions for each OS / platform). Small PC demos use directX or openGL, obviously, I think SDL is on similar level, it could have been just installed on the system and ready to be used by your program.

And even if you want to include SDL in your program, say, you want to compile it statically with your code. Remember that SDL is really broad, it can handle lots and lots of screen formats, different color depths, planar graphics... And I proposed to use SDL just to get a framebuffer in a normalised way, all your bliting routines would be yours (you can use SDL's but writing your own software renderer is half the fun). SDL is open source, it's quite small and organised, it's licence allows you to compile it statically. It's quite easy to just take a part of it that you want, for example, said creation of a window and frame buffer. That's a tiny part of (compiled) code.


Dynamic linking or dlopen()ing SDL is fair and square on non-windows OSs IMO. Windows has win32 for really efficient windowing, and since "Linux" has no official API besides syscalls, it's just fine to treat the most common installed software stack as part of the "base platform" in this case. Even the last party I attended has "allowed to link to common system (for example glibc, OpenGL and SDL)" in the rules https://instanssi.org/2018/kompot/#96 and another pretty big local one has "Latest Ubuntu (18.04)", whatever that means, and I sure as hell hope it means the "average ubuntu after installing a few common applications and games" (SDL2). https://www.assembly.org/summer18/demoscene/rules

What shit.



Do not frustrate yourself. Learn everyday a little bit and soon you will be good at it.

Most users drop good gnu/linux distros because of the impatience.

The above sentence is to be taken as a analogy. You should be patient and learn things from the beginning. Do not engage into very complicated and complex projects at first.

The one good thing that helped me is the following: teaching.

If you try to repeat the process of learning while transmitting the learned you learn it way faster. If, like me, you are too much of a hikkiko, record yourself doing it.

Learn scripting language like Python or Perl first. Also git gud at the Bash shell. Learning how to use Bash and I/O redirection allows you to make the computer your bitch. You can human-centipede you programs with Bash and become a god.



this is good advice, along the same lines I think going through a book like "Introduction to Programming Emacs Lisp", since the payoff with both of these strats will provide immediate utility, along with utility for the rest of your life, even if you don't become a programmer.

and pedagogically, I think cs50 sucks compared to the "Systematic Programming Design" on EdX, which begins with "How to Code: Simple Data".

Yea sure, because glowinthedarks totally can't joint it just like anyone else. Where does the silly conception that """open""" things are safe from corporate/government/TLA etc. infiltration?

>What is 0 A.D.?

0 A.D. is a free as in freedom, open source game, inspired by Age of Empires 2. It's avaible for Windows, OSx, GNU/Linux and BSD

>Why should I care?

Because it's one of the few good FREE games, it promotes historical accuracy, it's fun to play, it has multiplayer and anyone can contribute to the game, for example if you're an historian you can check the accuracy of the civilizations, propose and help create new ones of the time period, if you can program you can help the team or create a mod yourself, if you have 3D modeling skills you can create new models for the game, etc... without having to ask permission to anyone. The game has a free p2p multiplayer.

>Why do you posted it in this board?

To BTFO all the "hurr durr there is no gayming or leenooks!!!!!".

Personally, I'm not affiliated to the team, but I think the development would be faster if more people play and contribute. Also, it would be nice to have more opponents in multiplayer.

LynxChan is an imageboard engine I started developing in 2015 with performance and flexibility in mind. It now powers several chans, with some having a good amount of traffic, like http://mewch.net and http://endchan.xyz

LynxChan 2.0 has entered it's beta with a stable release scheduled for 19/05.

It brings easily the biggest changes ever made in the project's nearly 3 years of existence, having completely changed templating and caching.

Now offering around 5 times better performance when serving pages and 50 times better performance when building pages it is trully deserving of a major version bump.

Along with these optimizations it includes the following features:

Links to board staff on board moderation page.

Page with details for media files, including a list of posts that use the file.

Implemented "remember me" on logins.

Thread's bump order is adjusted when replies are deleted.

Setting to configure the cache expiration of static files.

Optional headers and footers on pages.

Setting to completely hide unindexed boards.

E-mail confirmation.

Terminal command to change account's password.

E-mail notifications of reports made to content you can moderate.

Configurable limit of board message sizes.

The project's repository is at http://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan and my demo site is http://lynxhub.com

>The NT kernel is the best possible platform and when it got 95's UI and Plug and Play and DirectX the competition was shut

It was in 2001 with XP that NT and 9x were completely merged, and XP was mature by SP2 in 2004 (reflecting this, Microsoft reset its lifecycle so its mainstream support lasted til 2009 and extended support til 2014, rather than 2006/2011 as originally planned). Still, only a few years after many if not most good things about NT5 were thrown away with Vista, and a de-evolution (somewhat alleviated by 7, but just temporarily) began.

To keep living in interesting /tech/ years one would need to go from Dec 31, 2006 back to Jan 1, 1990.



Sure, that's fine. I'd just stock up on Amiga 3000's and never touch a PC again.



Raycasting "2.5D" 3D graphics like Wolf/Doom were basically impossible on Amiga/Atari due to their "planar pixel" video chipsets. Great for 2D, but "chunky pixels" were the only way to go for 3D.




I believe this is from a time when Copy Protection used to fuck with floppy discs hard, making them unusable much of the time, to the point where a lack of copy protection was a feature.

Your node is exposed as window.ipfs on every webpage. The API aims to be compatible with interface-ipfs-core, which means websites can now detect if the property exists in window context and opt-in to use it instead of creating their own js-ipfs node. It saves system resources and battery (on mobile), avoids the overhead of peer discovery/connection, enables shared repository access and more!

Is there a way to download the plugin over IPFS with a ipfs.io official hash? Instead of trusting mozilla or jewgle men in the middle for no backdoors?


>I'm not particularly thrilled by the browser dependency

The 1.x branch works with XUL if you want to use older Firefox forks.


Compile it yourself. https://github.com/ipfs-shipyard/ipfs-companion



That's true, but there are to facets to p2p: obfuscation and distribution. Ipfs is a protocol that is concerned with solving the latter. Even if the former isn't resolved, that doesn't mean i2p can't lend itself to that in other ways, nor does it mean that ipfs wouldn't affect things like infrastructure and consumption.



>The 1.x branch works with XUL if you want to use older Firefox forks.

Is it missing any features over the 2.*.* branch?

>Compile it yourself

First fuck nodejs, second is there a way to download the source code without trusting niggerhub?


>That's true, but there are to facets to p2p: obfuscation and distribution

IPFS solves distribution and using TOR bridges with a obfuscation protocol making your traffic always look like http traffic solves obfuscation. Use TOR.


>because replacing ISPs is trivial, amirite

It is actually. But your choices are equally shit. Don't like your comcast/compromised broadband modem provider over a physical coaxial line? Switch to a phone/DSL line. Don't like the entirely wiretapped by the NSA system of phone lines? Get jewgle fiber. Don't have/trust jewgle fiber or their equally compromised, with few exceptions, hardware of openwrt routers? Get satellite internet. Don't like the CIA sending your data to several worldwide centers in real time over satellite or the severe lacking in openwrt modems that support your provider? Get a cellular modem/phone for internet purposes. Don't like the fact that every single phone in existence is PWNED and fucked as a internet access point? Get a ham radio and use that to communicate with someone elses compromised access point. Don't like the slower then the phone line speeds of ham radio or the FAA intercepting and storing all waves you ever transmit? Well then you better get a pitch fork and deal with all the other forms of internet access all of which are compromised or equally shit.
