Does anyone have a link for the source code of the Antidepressant CSS theme?

Setting up a local copy is such a hassle and Bitdiddle said:

>Don't worry about that. I'm sincerely grateful you found that severe bug, took the time to read the code and offered a way to fix the issue


>We badly need those. Now is the time.


>Thank you again for discovering that awful bug. I believe your stress tests will hit the nginx cache, so they should be safe.

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.

I used to regularly thrash my HDD by distrohopping and overwriting it with a new OS every 1-2 weeks. HDD promptly died after a year or 2 and I've now installed Fedora on a SSD and just stuck with it. Distrohopping is a meme :C

How does that work? A distro install isn't a lot of data, so one every week can't add much to your average write rate.

>>203
I never bothered with thumb drives much, usually because I didn't have one around most times, so I had a separate partition on the disk that I wrote the ISO to which I would boot from. From there I would install whichever distro to the rest of the disk. I basically was writing 3 separate copies of the distro iso/files to the same disk every time I hopped.

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.188

>>187
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.

I have 16 Gigs in my main machine, but I also use that one for photoshop/premiere and music production. I use my laptop for pretty much only browsing the web and reading and I never reach past 4 Gig doing that. So I'd say, you do you, there's no point in upgrading if you don't need it.

i mean, main rig has 8gb, t510 has 4gb and im working in setting up a minecraft server with 2gb and a ib with 1gb, 16gb seems too much of a meme, yet again i didnt upgrade my pc until its intel 2 quad and 2gb of ram shit the bed

When will 32GB be the standard?

 No.177

The cheap second-hand laptop I got last year has 8GB and that's been a pretty big change for me, I was used to 4GB up to that point. I'm still shocked to hear of people using 16. Though I suppose using a bunch of ever-expanding spyware (read: Windows) can be pretty intensive. Unless I suddenly have a change of heart and start getting heavily into gaming, I don't think I'll ever need more than this.

 No.182

>>110
Standard for what? for hardcore gaming maybe, also for Pixar level modeling or Hollywood level video edition, for other tasks no, I run a lot VM and I don't need more than 8GB, of course when I do that work I only can do that work, same with video edition and other similar tasks. Of course if you use a super bloated system even 16GB eventually become not enough.

>>143
Agree, its a meme, and a very bad one.

>>174
I hope never ever.
