Have you ever operated a chan?

What does it take, in terms of memory, CPU, bandwidth and disk space to run a chan? Let's suppose it's at wirechan's posting rate.

What software is best? Vichan? Lynxchan?

You could buy a cheap optiplex and use that as your server. Literally most optiplexes made in the last 10 years would be overkill for a board of this size. You can use your regular ISP as the host provider. There really is no reason to buy a VPS/Dedicated server for nearly most websites. You should only upgrade to those services once you're site is too big.


I'm currently working on an imageboard engine.
It'll be written in C#.

If anyone has any questions or have any recommendations of features they'd like the engine to have let me know.
The goal is to create something that non-programmers can use. Something that's efficient and written as clearly as possible so beginners can learn from it.

If anyone has any questions lmk. Should be out in about a month,


Is it going to be released under the AGPL? Why C#?


It'll be open source, not sure under what license. Anyone will be free to steal it, use it, hack it whatever. There will also be an executable for ease of use.

Why C#:
1. The project started as a personal challenge. I'm not reading the source of vichan or tinychan I'm treating the boards as a blackbox and writing the code from the functionality I observe. I wanted to see if I could create an imageboard from scratch with a new language that would be useful for me in future projects.
2. C# has good performance
3. C# is easy to read so it'll allow newer programmers to reverse engineer the software and learn from it.
4. C# is hot in the market atm and I don't see it going away, making it valuable for people to learn about.

Is there any new, up and coming technology that makes you excited? I feel like everything new I hear about is either boring or outright designed to make our lives worse.

Tinyboard is a decades old now and it still has stupid bugs like these. What's so hard about imageboard software?

Well, I ordered these today after a recommendation by an audiophile friend. Pretty stoked.


I'm not suicidal, I just agree with OP, I don't know how I relate to giving up.

I know this is kind of a meme on boards like this, but is it actually possible to learn university-level mathematics on your own? Not a full mathematics program, just the equivalent of some select courses. How would one go about it?
14 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


Thanks anon. The course looks interesting, I'll give it a try. Do you usually take notes while watching these? I guess for courses it is a must, but what about the "edutainment"?


I know hobby programmers can contribute to open-source and post their programs on github, but what do hobby mathematicians do? Is there some forum where they share the proofs they come up with or something?

>Is there some forum where they share the proofs they come up with or something?
Yes! There is a small effort to make "massively multiplayer mathematics" a reality, where randos on the internet shoot out ideas about unsolved problems:

It's a bit dead, but still.


I was thinking of something more analogous to rewriting fizzbuzz for the thousandth time, but this is really cool.

Lainchan and Arisuchan are full of idiots now, and 4/g/ is out of the question. But this imageboard could use some activity, any ideas?

> /λ/'s mod is/was a self-proclaimed fascist
Oh wow.

I started spending time on Lainchan because I didn't need to roll my eyes at hateful bullshit in every third post, and now half the threads seem to have someone yelling about Jews. I'm not even angry, just exhausted.

Not much content yet, unless it's hidden somewhere.


I remember browsing parazite (the onion website) back in 2013, good times


What's this board focused on?


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.

Is 4GB of ram still normal in present day? I switched from 2GB and everything works perfectly. For me personally, it is enough.

yeah, a big part of the issue is consumer grade computers and professional computers are kind of blurring together; you have spotty 13 year old boys in their bedrooms using rigs that would be powerful enough to be a professional workstation. if consumer computers get capped at a certain level, then hopefully consumer software stays less resource heavy. plus it'd encourage pro software (daws, 3d modelling software, etc) to optimize better to get to da consoomers


I hope never, I use a t400 with 6GB of ram, and I don't know why i bothered on plugging the 4 GB stick because i never use more than 2 gbs


Unused RAM is wasted RAM.


How can i use it?


Compile something of reasonable size with LTO, it will make your computer swap like crazy.

Does anyone here still use a CRT?

I use one as my 2nd monitor. It was my family's first monitor, and it still works pretty well. 1280x1024 at 60hz, but i run it at a lower resolution to get 75hz out of it.
I don't use it as a main monitor because I enjoy the sharpness of my 1080p 60hz asus monitor. On my main, my sharpness is at 90/100.


I have 1 or 2, but unfortunately I can't use them because no VGA on computer :^(


no why would i use that


Better coloration.


Grab an adapter. I have an HDMI to VGA and there is also DVI-D to VGA

What got you into Linux?
43 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Windows 8. Bought a new laptop with win8, then was made unemployed. Lived in a micro apartment with only cold water and next door to a factory. Depression set in.

Decided F* it, win8 is a horror show. Had played with Linux before (dual booted Fedora at university / well meaning parents bought me the RedHatBible when I was in high school) and just went full Linux this time.

Haven't gone back since. Main issue these days is finding a place selling laptops (often refurbished) without a win license tacked onto the price. Still poor. But at least my pc does my bidding.


You can still very easily get adware in your browser tbh, anyone who thinks they're totally safe just because they're on linux are retarded

t. someone who gets adware from emulator downloads way too often


Look, we are not the ones downloading random shit from the net. Could it be that the retard is you?

>linusbottoms can't admit that linux isn't impenetrable

That why you're fat and alone and why Windows connoisseurs rule the world

Linux bitches get BTFO


I don't remember exactly why I got into linux.
I think I decided to set up a dual boot setup on my old laptop after reading about it on LifeHacker (I think). I didn't like it at first, but I did kind of like it. Now I can't imagine ever using Windows ever agoin.
