Hello /g/, let's share some neat terminal/tui programs shall we?
I'll go first and recommend you try out duf which just shows you a quick overview of disks and their usage. Here is its github: https://github.com/muesli/duf


The only fancy thing I use is htop but I guess everyone knows that.

good to see no one's being paranoid about this whole thing


What company would feel threatened by the FSF? They are pretty irrelevant.

I'm doing exercise 3.2 right now, and it told me to
> First, make an arithmetic that defines only addition, negation, and subtraction of vectors over a base arithmetic of operations applicable to the coordinates of vectors. Applying any other operation to a vector should report an error.
But if I make it throw an error with `(error "Unsupported vector operation:" operator)', it makes extend-arithmetic fail on zero?. If I return with #f instead of raising the error, it seems to work. I also had to register the `vector?' predicate.

I don't know if I am just not paying enough attention to the text or it really just throws you into deep water with the exercises.

Is there anything worth watching on PeerTube?

Looks like the people at Framasoft realized how hard it is to find anything on PeerTube and made a semi-curated search engine for it: https://sepiasearch.org/
Announcement: https://framablog.org/2020/09/22/sepia-search-our-search-engine-to-promote-peertube/


This is some netlabel's PeerTube, they upload music videos to it: https://v.basspistol.org/videos/local


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

What browsers do you guys use to surf the web?
I use firefox developer edition so i can install my won addons.

What other tools do you use to get around the net?

Same, I'm happy with Firefox for the most part. But I am interested in trying something new. I'd like to eventually replace it with something a lot better for my overall needs.


Waterfox. It's good.


-I use Brave for YouTube and Anime
-I use Tor for research and imageboards


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.


wats wrong with brave

What is the worst thing ever happened on your PC?
40 posts and 6 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


It once froze when I played chess.


Installed DOS 6.2 over my windows 7 by accident


Multibooting FreeDOS, Win7, WinXP, Kali, ReactOS, and Xubuntu on the same Thinkpad HDD.


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.


Haha lol.
Imagine if the pc said:
"Hard drive deleted because of horny.exe
Go to horny jail."

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?

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


I started reading a geometry book for high schoolers, I thought it would be an easy warmup before more serious maths. But it turned out to be really hard for me, it is basically an endless collection of proof exercises and I progress very slowly. It makes me feel like I am too stupid for maths.


lol, I find proofs hard too. But I'm kind of resigned to the fact that learning maths is going to take me a very long time, since I'm not doing it for school or university.

What kind of geometry is it, out of interest? 2D Euclidean geometry? I'd like to be able to understand non-Euclidean geometry one day.


It's Birkhoff's "Basic Geometry", it was in one of those "learn maths from scratch" guides with the obligatory anime girl. It's Euclidean but based on Birkhoff's own axioms. I was always bad with geometry and proofs, that's why I chose to study this, to correct some deficiencies so to speak, but it gets pretty frustrating.


why do you wanna learn maths?

Is it for fun?

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?

Damn I almost forgot I made this thread and yes I forgot to type "reverse" in there. Big thankies regardless. The normal image search tools will probably come in handy as well.

i got kicked out of the project for being a tranny

Sad how he just ended up on the streets.
To bad he had to life in the united states. Other countrys social programms would have taken care of him.


I actually knew the maintainer, a really insane right wing type. He asked me for furry porn recommendations, but unfriended me for saying that at least 1 evil thing was not jewish.

PC-cooling is important…


what about the operating system?


Lain would probably use an OS with a good GUI.


So Hackintosh.
