When I was like 13 I experimented with 3L1t3 h4x0r tricks like batch "malware". So I basically wrote a .bat that would delete all drives and saved it in a hidden folder directly besides the porn folder. One glorious day I had an intense boner and needed to fap FAST. I accidentally clicked on the batch file and that was it.
Of course back in the days I had ALL of the good winXP malware sooner or later. Best one was that pajeet scam that made your computer boot into a bluescreen saying you need to buy some shit or call a specific number. Good ol' times.

Depends on what for.
Ungoogled Chromium for my botnet stuff like G Drive or Slack which I need for my job, that's why they have their own browser I don't want google to read out any cookies.
Falkon for all nonbotnet stuff like imageboards and Tor when digging deeper.

Before I distrohopped I just brave for the botnet stuff (bc the inbuild adblocker was good when going on yt) and chromium for the normal stuff. But fuck brave. Not sure if I'm going to stick to Falkon but it seems okay, haven't really read into it yet though. I prefer it over Brave because I feel like a faggot with software like that.

I use ungoogled-chromium too. It's really lightweight and fast compare to Firefox. Aside from that, if you really want Firefox-like UI without botnet, try Librewolf if you're lazy or harden Firefox yourself

It just feels like soyftware. I see that they have useful inbuild adblocker and stuff, but you know something is off, if the logo looks like a it should attract fortnite-players. Also it's build on chromium so ungoogled-chromium is a better option, as it will always be the best chromium-based option. Brave really is just a good browser (imo) if you want to grind it's BAT, which kinda is the biggest cuckold-move in cyberhistory, as your sidehustle would be to let corpos rewire your brain into knowing their products and brands for virtual money that is owned by a big corpo.
Also there was that donation incident, where brave just "took" donations that were donated to creators via brave wallet.
>When Bitcoinist reported on the ability to tip content creators directly from Brave browser, that was a positive thing, right? Actually, not so much when it uses creators’ names and photos, to collect donations ‘for them’, without their consent.

>Is the format even the same for CPython, PyPy and other Python interpreters? Sorry for the questions, I have no idea how it works.
https://docs.python.org/3/glossary.html#term-bytecode
"""Python source code is compiled into bytecode, the internal representation of a Python program in the CPython interpreter. The bytecode is also cached in .pyc files so that executing the same file is faster the second time (recompilation from source to bytecode can be avoided). This “intermediate language” is said to run on a virtual machine that executes the machine code corresponding to each bytecode. Do note that bytecodes are not expected to work between different Python virtual machines, nor to be stable between Python releases.

A list of bytecode instructions can be found in the documentation for the dis module."""

https://docs.python.org/3/library/dis.html
"""The dis module supports the analysis of CPython bytecode by disassembling it. The CPython bytecode which this module takes as an input is defined in the file Include/opcode.h and used by the compiler and the interpreter.

CPython implementation detail: Bytecode is an implementation detail of the CPython interpreter. No guarantees are made that bytecode will not be added, removed, or changed between versions of Python. Use of this module should not be considered to work across Python VMs or Python releases."""

I'm not aware of a direct statement of the rationale behind that decision – it's not in e.g. the Design and History FAQ [0]. The spirit of The Python Language Reference suggests that it was specified in terms of an abstract execution model [1] precisely to allow more freedom for Alternate Implementations [2].

>>1482
When running a python program, the following steps are taken:
Python source code -> abstract syntax tree (AST) -> bytecode
Hy replaces the "Python source code -> AST" step.

We should note that bytecode is an implementation detail.
CPython has its own format, Jython compiles to JRE bytecode, and other implementations can use more complicated means such as running and compiling simultaneously (JIT compilation).


>>1484
>Maybe they do it like this because there's no portable bytecode format?
It's simpler if you just replace the "source code -> AST" step.
AST is the ideal model to compile your code to
because it is the same level of abstraction as it's input (source code).
You can easily see create and run your own AST with python's ast library.
It's pretty trivial to even implement a simple language yourself using that library.

Doesn't it make a lot of optimizations impossible to do? Since you are basically translating your semantics into sugar-free Python.

I used one pretty recently when i (briefly) moved back in with my parents. I had bought a Sony Trinitron from a local classified about 7 years prior for the sum of five dollars. When I originally bought it i learnt that it had belonged to the sellers son whom, i shit you not, had died in a plane crash. I couldn't be arsed taking it with me when i moved out, so i left it at my parents place.

The Trinitron was the only monitor i had. No second screen. Going back to 1280x1020 in current-year -2 is painful if you do anything other than shitpoast on imageboards. Modern applications expect you to be using a widescreen display so the layout on most things is fucked. Ironically 4:3 works works good for a lot of news sites as the margins that are usually occupied by obnoxious ads are cropped off.

Colours were nice (IIRC) but not dick melting when compared to a decent, modern IPS/OLED LCD display.

Would i use a CRT monitor for five dollars? Sure why not. Would i use a CRT monitor for $200+ dollars? fuck no. The "CRT is the best display technology evar" meme was relevant in 2009 when a 22" LCD with good colours and a sub 10ms response time was like $600.

This same shit applies to ThinkPads and crusty old IBM keyboards. These products were recommended by neckbeards because they were CHEAP, plentiful and high quality compared to contemporary equivalent products.

I ended up selling my Trinitron to some drooling collectorfag for several hundred dollars. I used that money to buy a Dell 2408WFP for basically nothing. I do not regret this decision at all.

Late nights suck. I'll be looking into c programming later for sure. It's been awhile you could say. Patience is the virtue to have these days. Sometimes difficult, though always necessary.I've met someone. I distance myself for a multitude of reasons, but the foremost being I don't dare hurt them like so many others.This is real guilt unfortunately, not put upon by the forcefulness of codependency, so not a write off.I know full well the nature of my monstrosity, and I've burned so many bridges getting here.I don't want or need answers/help/care, just spaces and there just isn't any room for it where I am.

As the snow falls on Christmas Eve, I have an update. Spreading wifi nodes through battery operated routers with a refreshed power and password list should be fairly doable, but i lack h/w to test. Openmaps api could be useful but gmaps is mature.Could just be a highres image with a legend too. Getting chased around by security was fun the other night as i grabbed some more files for sifting.Found a few hideyholes while out too but it was late and my camera sucks. Will upload if interesting.Need work soon and i hope my friend stays in contact. Wish i could offer more support, things are hard/busy here. Merry Christmas Lainons.

Hi. Haven't given up on this place yet. Everything is temporary anyway. I'm attracted to the idea of working in a team, each of us covering each other, in terms of digging and infosec. I'm working on it slowly. Once I have work my stress level should go down, and I can make more time. I do better under structure, my own too, and if I have a monetary stream I can do more.One of my team members I have history with, this is both a block and a plus. I need strategies to deal with that, so I don't fuck up again. Some others are local, one I don't trust or understand lol, but eventually, we'll parse each other or part ways. There's another programmer in the area that I'm reaching out to.I hope koi doesn't shit this up like the discord, but whatever is in the cards, I guess I'm prepared for the worst. I'm cool with elsewhere too, this was just convenient and not under lens.Bye for now and thanks for all the fish

colorfags leave.living with tech that has little to no incentivization. this is the way I, and many others grew up with computers. you learned something for the sake of doing it or necessity or it was fun.so much of our tech is currently married into an economic struggle that will collapse upon itself in some spectacular heat death. our life-changing tech is heavy, supremely dense -- the great work of our generation won't start at IBM or any company spawning AI generation. Or at Monsanto or Frito Lay.it'll be in our collective garages on imageboards discords and gnusocials, where we're reverse engineering the big thing that came out. to make it ours and everybody's come what may.and we'll do it for fun.

Federal District Judge Walter McGovern, who said he liked the taste of Pepsi-Cola today rejected a lawsuit filed to force the Coca-Cola Company to change its new taste back to its original 99-year-old formula. After the hearing, Gay Mullins, the president of Old Cola Drinkers of America, said the organization would file a suit within 30 days to restore the old Coke flavor. ''Today's suit was just to change the labeling, not to change the new Coke back to old Coke,'' he said.
