Seems very bare bones for a place that calls itself a zine. And it's only article has many spelling mistakes. I'd also argue the problems the author faces are already solved with Distro's like Ubuntu, Mint, and Pop! OS. I personally don't like the idea of centralizing Linux.

i think culture has shifted due to all things cyber written and inked in the 70s-90s becoming mainstream. i mean, the matrix is /cyb/ af, and that was heavily funded by a big studio. cyberpunk effectively became mainstream. so much of what gibson predicted came true. some of it we're living due to hardware getting so cheap. i have scores of systems laying around that i can throw stuff on. phones are dirt cheap too. we're living it. Thoughts?

I wanted to use linux for everyday use while windows for gaming, so i dual booted manjaro and windows 10, but the parititon for manjaro is only 2gb and i cant increase it around 100gb, so now im going to use windows 10 for everything else normally while linux manjaro for tor browsing and wasting time ricing it up but i still want privacy + security on my linux so what should i know, install, or do in order to not be spied on by glowies?

Basic security programs: icecat, anonsurf, onionshare, i2psnark, truecrypt 7.1a, KeepassXC.
Encrypt with luks. Add password to BIOS. Only store glowie shit on encrypted external drives. Use keepass to generate and store all passwords. Keep master pw in your head and no where else.
Good email providers: disroot and riseup. VPN of course.
Alternatively, do what >>1649 said and keep tails on a bootable USB or create a partition for Qubes for fedposting purposes.

Depending on threat model, making something like Manjaro "extremely secure" might be more trouble then it's worth. A lot of the hardening comes from the kernel and having the right dot files / configs in place to make best use of those features. Even if Manjaro offers hardened kernel in their repos, I'd imagine the OS might have to be tweaked a bit to take full advantage of it? And depending on how motivated the glow-in-the-darks are, hardware can also be a consideration. Many of the pros try and exploit the hardware as well as the software. Some red teams having designated driver experts writing custom exploits in assembly on a case by case basis.
These anons gave good advice

>Basic security programs…
There's also Kodachi live boot OS. I can't vouch for it since I haven't taken an in depth look at it, but it's a thing and thought it might be worth a mention ITT. Also, Parrot OS is an interesting project.
As an aside, one can even pick up some knowledge by looking at how Debian, and even Ubuntu, configure their distros. INB4 UBUNTU REEEEE! I know Ubuntu default desktop leaks meta-data and their implementation of systemd is bloated and would require a thread unto itself. I'm only referring to the fact that Debian and Ubuntu are commonly deployed as servers and have some sensible defaults in that regard that might be useful for some to look into.
Also, building upon a basic Alpine install is another interesting option. Potential to have something with a very small attack surface and somewhat of a security by obscurity factor compared to other distros.

If Curry–Howard correspondence is true and proofs are programs, why don't software engineers just write proofs instead of programs? That we they wouldn't have to worry about proving their programs correct since they would be already proofs.

 No.1540

I'm glad u asked.

>why don't software engineers just write proofs instead of programs

Well, technically, they do write proofs, since programs are the same thing.
The things is, they usually prove something like:
"given integers x,y, either floor(x/y) is an integer or RuntimeException".

I guess are asking why their proofs almost always prove this extra " or RuntimeException" (and actually there are usually more such terms).
The reason is just that it's easier to not be as precise, at least with the current technology.
For example, if i can use (int)( x*(x+2)/2 ) without having to prove that x*(x+2)/2 is an integer.

There are some languages whose programs really are proofs (e.g. Coq),
but they are more difficult to read and write, have less access to libraries, etc.

I think there should be a way to write safe, yet readable and efficient code,

That's not entirely correct. What you describe is the typechecking, which is equivalent to the correctness check of a proof. But the statement that the proof proves is not this, but the type itself. If your proof is "floor(x/y)", what it proves is that if you can construct two integers, then you can construct an "integer or RuntimeException".

It's easier if we put it in a method. The following three methods have the same type and therefore prove the same statement:

int nonsense(int x, int y) throws RuntimeException {
return floor(x/y);
}
int nonsense2(int x, int y) throws RuntimeException {
return 0;
}
int nonsense3(int x, int y) throws RuntimeException {
throw new RuntimeException();
}

>That's not entirely correct.

What i should've said is that, in hypothetical a program,
the expression floor(x/y) proves that, given integers x,y, either you can make an integer or throw a RuntimeException.

>throws RuntimeException

In every Java declaration,
there is an implicit RuntimeException,
since they can be thrown anywhere without declaration,
so any method's return type should be considered a union of the stated type with a RunTimeException throw.

> return bullshit(x);

I guess we should add an "infinite execution" to all our RuntimeException terms.
You could also return null,

I'm making a cyberpunk adventure game inspired by pc98 game aesthetics, snatcher etc.
I'm still doing my own thing, but I think that's the closest I can compare it to.
It's still way too early in dev to even show it off, but I'm workin on it.

I'd appreciate knowing what would you like to see in a game like that, graphic wise, gameplay wise etc. could be examples from other games.

I should mention that there is a supernatural element to the game, suehiro maruo/junji ito inspired stuff.

Add a skinny tower which has an elevator that takes you to the top and then flying ships underneath you and you have to jump at the right time or you get squished. Add phaser guns to shoot enemies. Add multiple planets and a market that you can buy things at and an open world option which lets you just go around and explore. Add ai's that talk to you like a VN. Add underworld. Add music. Don't use GTK!

Technology can be old but gold, what makes it interesting to me is whether or not it is widely adopted and used.

Right now i am excited to get a Raspberry Pi and make my own VPN router, nothing new or revolutionary, just underutilized.

If you just want something new on the horizon then mine would be VR tech, defo some scary problems to consider, but that is what they said about the internet (and still do), i am hoping for a creative explosion like the start of the internet had back in the day.

Hopefully we can use VR to create new interesting spaces to escape the current status quo, if but for a time.
