This site has "edutainment" videos, if I understand correctly they are uploaded by youtubers (i.e., it's not an unofficial mirror).

I found this video about making something similar. They cut up the image into parts in some editor and then use some magic in AfterEffects to bend it. The first part can be done easily in GIMP, but is there any FLOSS software that can do the second?

because humans make it and use it, the machine doesn't care you can make a language based on different dick sizes and it will still take it, but we don't think like that we think and verbalize our thoughts with words, we refined to a point where we can use letters who are easy to grasp and to memorize in a verbal way who can also be used in a number of different variations

square+circle+lain+circle+dildo+triangle= function a
"a" = function a

The Little Schemer (and its continuations) have a very nice dialogue-like structure to them, which takes a bit of practice to read effectively, but once you are used to it, is a delight to read. The examples it use are very fun, too. I was told that it is an example of "programmed instruction" but other books labelled programmed instruction are nowhere near this masterpiece.

This is a textbook written for students whose introductory programming class used a functional programming language, the concrete examples are in SML. It teaches C and imperative programming through translating functional programs into efficient and idiomatic C programs. Sometimes the translations are quite formal, other times somewhat heuristic.

Hi. Where do you think the best places are to promote my new cyberpunk book, Hemispheres? I won't pitch it here in respect for your space, but I have been developing my website and I need to test it to see how people are going to react to it before launch. https://www.markeverglade.com

My email is markeverglade.author at gmail dot com if there's any feedback.

Thanks!
Mark

OK. It's been in this unusable state for me for a month and a half now.

> web.archive.org doesn't require captchas but to archive a site, you need to enable JabbaShit.

Unfortunately it seems to require JS for searching as well. The only non-JS function seems to be serving archived pages if you have a direct link, but the direct link contains the archival timestamp, so it cannot be constructed from the target URL alone.

With the GPL, for any binary that you distribute, you have to make the corresponding source code available. With reproducible builds (see: https://reproducible-builds.org/), it is possible to verify that the binary was indeed compiled from the available source code. All you have to do is to compile the source code yourself, and compare the resulting binary with the one distributed. For an example of this in practice, see guix's `challange` command.

With the AGPL, if you run a service accessible through a network, you have to make the corresponding source code to the service available to the users. But is there a way for the user to verify that the service provided corresponds to the source code available? I can't think of any situation where the service couldn't just simply lie about what it is.

I believe this to be very important in today's climate where every megacorporation tries to paint themselves to be great supporters of "open source" and many of our organizations are funded by their "generous donations". But the problem is that they don't give a shit about software freedom. Take Visual Studio Code for example. Microsoft used to advertise it as being Open Source, and millions in good faith downloaded binaries of it. Until a careful eye noticed that the source code released as "Visual Studio Code" was different from the binaries released as "Visual Studio Code". In fact, the binaries even have their own license agreement that you have to accept to use them. After being called out on it, Microsoft modified their website and now Visual Studio Code only claims that it was "built on Open Source", as if that was something to be proud of. But the damage has already been done. I think Docker employed (or still employs) similar tricks. The problem is, pushover (so-called "permissive") licenses do not protect you from this trickery at all. With copyleft licenses, the source code of the binary has to be provided. But with pushover licenses, corporations can put some crippled version of their software on Github as bait, and distribute proprietary versions of it in binary form. This is why I think verifying source-to-binary correspondence, enabled by bootstrappable and reproducible builds, is so important.

There was this talk at LibrePlanet 2020 by someone from the Open Source Initiative(!) about some current practices that companies employ to appear as part of the Free Software movement without actually adhering to the principles of software freedom.

I wanted to make a somewhat niche imageboard but my friend dropped out of the developing due to depression and i am more of an idea/design/admin kinda of person than good programmer and it ended up being more work that i can handle, i've been admin/mod for forums back in the day but never really the coding guy so we kinda just shot down the domain.

Has any of you operated something like that? Or has a cool webspace? or want to do one with me

wirechan is in pretty good shape alreadythey got everything on point for the theme they're going for i think, i just wanted to make a image/textboard in a different theme that is not very popular with imageboard users, it was just an idea that i threw out with my friend and he said he would be down to make it but i wasn't supposed to be i guess.

Do you have a cool webspace fren?

 No.1475

>>1474
Yeah, I have a small landing page for my ZNC and that stuff, plus my friends are working on a revival for an ib they had, plus another one has his own ib and I help them moderate it.
