I was talking about web development with some normies and we got on the topic of registering domains. I mentioned some registrars such as Namecheap and GoDaddy. Two of them laughed when I said GoDaddy. They thought I was making a weird joke. They had a hard time understanding that it was the name of a registrar.

Is this a problem with non-technical luddites, or is GoDaddy just a terrible name for a domain registrar?

Also, which domain registrar(s) do you use?

Normalfags unironically think that GoDaddy is a porn website because of those ads they used to run during the Super Bowl.

I'm one of those people who saves images off of *booru-type boards, and while I tried to keep it organized I inevitably found myself with folder like "good1", "good17", "abs", etc.

Well, I noticed my sloppy habits were using lots of HDD space, so I wrote a little bash script which would put all the images in one central folder, md5 them, then link them in my categories. Saved some HDD space.

But then I f'd up, and accidentally scrambled my folders. With everything in one big fat disorganized folder with md5 names I really didn't want to put effort into sorting them... ... So I wrote another script which would scrape various booru sites and get the tags for the images I had, dumping them into a text file. I didn't know what to do with it, but I knew it was a good step.

A week later I went back and made another script that would create and populate folder based on searches I threw at it. I could just run something like "prondir big_breasts flat_chest -o bigandsmall", and it worked nicely!

But this was ugly. I like nice things. So this morning I started the bare bones of a proper SQL database, tossed a custom MVC CMS I wrote into it, jammed my tag database in there, and put together a mini-site for my glorious porn browsing.

Then I made it nicer... and I started adding features. I crossed the event horizon of "this is for me" into "hey, I think this could be a thing?" It's only day 1 into "formal" development, but I re-wrote my Bash stuff into PHP, and started on features that I would want. E.g; when you view an image it will also recommend images you might also be interested in.

So, if I keep going on this thing - what would anyone want to see in a new booru board? Since it's only got bare bones, there's not any tech debt, planning now around what everyone wants seems like an idea.

I have a bunch of older games that still use the disc and I would like to play them without the CD or DVD in my drive (some disc checks won't even work under Wine at all). The usual solution is to download a cracked EXE, but obviously this is just begging for trouble. And that's assuming that there even is a crack for my version of the game (i.e. certain patch version of a certain language).

Is there some resource to learn how to crack disc-based DRM schemes myself? All I can find when I web-search for the topic is already made cracks, not how to make those cracks myself.

wine doesn't protect you from malware.


why do niggers write keygens? just nop out the key check. this nigger working with me once made me write a keygen while he cracked some other check in the program (so you have to use our crack ON TOP of entering a key generated by the keygen), but we could have easily just removed the key check and save the user an extra step



>why do niggers write keygens?

Because an unmodified binary can be patched by an official patch.



Are there any FLOSS alternatives?



>wine doesn't protect you from malware.

I don't run pozzed modern games. I have good confidence on the programs I run in wine.

What's are some good alternatives to jewgle android?

How do I get a usable phone with internet, without being on the Android botnet?

3 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


Any kind of baseband device is a privacy nightmare, but Android with GApps easily takes the cake.

There are few options, generally speaking less intrusive also means less convenient/available.

Replicant, microg LineageOS and feature phones are probably the best you can find right now.

Purism, well let's just wait and see.

Blackberry support will end in late 2019, so not a great long-term solution.

iOS is the devil you know, not great but generally preferable if your choice is between Google and Apple and you're dependant on some kind of app.



Unfortunately you need an adapter for wifi to work. The modem is still proprietary, so you essentially are as safe as you would be on a dumbphone.


Is it worth it to not have any google account and just get apps from https://f-droid.org ? I mean, does it help much or is it just making the phone handicapped without any real benefit?



You probably won't find a satisfactory answer. GApps are a fucking cancer for sure and swallows up every bit of information about you Google can get their hands on so getting rid of it is a good idea.

On the other hand I wouldn't put it past them to include their methods of fingerprinting and gathering your location in AOSP itself.


None buy a featurephone.

CE: Only do this if you're either already extremely good with math/physics(specifically the electrical side) or willing to go through a lot of pain to become so.

CS: It's basically The Art of Computer Programming in the form of a degree. Might as well, though you'll have some math classes too that'll likely be painful, but definitely achievable without much prior knowledge.

IT: If it's your life's aspiration to tell boomers to restart their computers and stop visiting porn sites at work until you finally snap and shoot up your company, this is the degree for you.



>tfw when in discrete and calc 2 and struggling with discrete

the way math is taught and tested makes me depressed tbh



Discrete Math and Linear Algebra are very important topics. Probably should approach the classes from a 'programmer' perspective. Math and programming really are the same things just dressed up differently. Programming is wordy with heavy emphasis on procedural expression, while math is very terse with heavy emphasis on structures, properties, and effects. Do realize it builds up on earlier ideas much like one's code builds up on dependency APIs you import.

Math can be thought of as a fun game of creating a base rules-set (axioms) and discovering all the cool things you can do with the rules (theorems, lemmas). In this sense it's not too different than a game like AD&D or MTG, just much much more open-ended.

Study your prereqs again, but from an 'overview' standpoint. Mainly Algebra and "pre-Calculus" material. Most times math classes in public schools are taught in such a way that the forest is missed for a particular small subset of trees. IMO, a math class should be taught like a sandwich in three sections:

-Top-down concepts without rigor, start highest level and work down to the base parts, so as to lay out an initial fuzzy roadmap into which students will insert later details (first quarter of semester).

-Detailed and rigorous tour of the base components the high levels ultimately depend on, exploring the levels of abstraction in ascending order (middle two quarters of semester).

-Bottom-up concepts with rigor, but less emphasis on the minute details already covered in middle section and more emphasis on tying them together into a much sharper roadmap for which the seed was planted in the first section.

School tends to mostly be middle section, sometimes with a last section, and almost never the first section. My reason for the first section is to lay out the structure of the subject *before* just learning what seems like random pedantic shit which will later be tied together. This is why I speed-watched lectures on YouTube of a math class I was about to take in the coming weeks. I did not bother to understand everythPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Fucking hell how can you be so autistic? Why put your money onto a single point of failure such as a cash card that can be canceled so easily? Just buy a privacy made (XMR) crypto with cash in hand or over the postal service and convert it to any shitcoin you want via shapshift.


Tumbled crypto is a waste of money. You could have the same effect with blockchain jumping.

I went back to school at 49, so no.


Got my college degree at an adult formation school called the AFPA here. Many of these are funded to help you get a motherfucking job. If you saved enough to pay studies to be SURE top have a job that pays you more, go do it faggot.

Now I'm an animator for some Irish Subminiature Horse company, it was worth the investment.


I just finished an Associates degree in computer networking, wondering if its worth doing online classes for a bachelors of science or if I should just give up computers and go back to school for carpentry.



Try to get a IT job while working on Bachelors. CCNA cert too wouldn't hurt. In a SHTF scenario, carpentry will be more valuable.


I went back in my mid 20s and I was usually the oldest one in the classroom. I now make way more money than I could have imagined before. I just have money saving up with no effort because I don't spend much at all. Go back to school, it is worth it. I'm finally on the path that few Americans are on and I'll be able to retire before official retirement age. I'll be able to live off my saved income instead of leeching off piss poor social security checks.

Well, it's either that or not having your back at all. Or do you expect the cock guy to stick his head out for you? There's still Dismail if you really want to stay away from political shit - but who knows how much you can trust those guys.



If they specify such terms that means they don't have your back at all.

Real dissent can always be conflated with some kind of 'sinful' agenda. Think of Assange's or Kavanaugh's rape charges, there was nothing factual but law enforcement can simply pull these allegations out of their ass to hurt someone with public support because of an emotional reaction. Alex Jones used to be an anti-war and anti-surveillance activist, but because of media bad mouthing half the country thinks he is a klansmen.

You don't have to be 'niggerkiller666' to be subjected to such charges, all it takes is some faint allegation and these fucks hand your information over no questions asked.

Sometimes a man just wants to see tiddies. I prefer white ones. Now here's an extension / utility I've thought about doing myself: The nigger eliminator. I know "porn scanners" scan all images on a pc for "fleshtones". I download my porn in bulk, and I hate how cuckchan has nigger posters that have to shit up every thread of pretty girls with niggers. So I'd like to scan my bulk download folders and pre-eliminate the pics with nigger fleshtones. Would save my eyes a lot of discomfort doing it manually. Could be turned into an extension like adblock that eliminates images from a page based on nigger content.
