mostly making stupid applications. somethings for automating some TTRPG processes, and something like a program that place customizable virtual waifu assistants on your desktop (which I think exists already). The big goal is to learn how to white hat properly while doing small software projects to avoid psychosis. Also it's good programming practice.

sure thing Anon, though, to create that study group board, I think I'd need to progress further with my studies than where I currently am (I started just as I wrote that post). The books I've got lined up for reading are:
>Compilers: Principles, Techniques, and Tools (The Dragon Book)
>Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach (6th Ed)
>Computer Systems: A Programmer's Perspective
>Crafting Interpreters
>Designing Data-Intensive Applications: The Big Ideas Behind Reliable, Scalable, and Maintainable Systems
>Mathematics for Computer Science (Eric Lehman)
>Operating Systems: Three Easy Pieces
>Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (2nd Ed)
>The Algorithm Design Manual
The list isn't in any particular order, and the book I'm on right now is SICP

Thanks for the comprehensive list. A good portion of them seem interesting.
Especially the lower level stuff.
I don't think I'll be following along with SICP.. Reading some CL stuff instead.

On Lisp in particular.

Here's a link for anyone interested in SICP though. The formatting is nice.

If you get anything out of SICP, I would like to know. I'm just going to put it off for now.

In SEL it feels like she shows up to school simply because it must be done for her to go on with her life. Her C lectures are going in one ear, and exiting the other. Bottomline: You don't need to know C for this goal of yours OP.

I just feel like I have nobody to discuss ideas with. If I post ideas online everyone expects them to be fully developed already and will do their best to demolish them and make me feel bad about myself for having had an idea, instead of helping to explore the idea and how it could be made to work.

Yeah, it's a mutual feeling.

Music to fit the theme
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oZgTIB1P1s

It just shows time and time again how you have to rely on yourself to develop.
Maintaining cordiality and good faith is difficult with all of the psyops out there.

Frankly, every time I begin reaching out, there's this foreboding feeling of exposure and so I retreat again.
The Internet in the older eras was explicit about this exposure: don't reveal yourself.
Just us talking over this medium exposes us to the entire world of bad actors.
Furthermore, we don't have any mutual concept of one another, a base from which one can sculpt out what information to expose or omit
And that's fine, we're adhering to the old adage, don't expose yourself.

I highly recommend Linux. Most, if not all, big tech companies run Linux servers, and many cloud services are similar. The best way to learn Linux (in my experience) is to jump right in. See if you can install Linux on an old laptop, or run WSL2 on Windows (not bad). Learn how to navigate the command-line, and also read some books on Linux.
The CompTIA Linux+ certification is pretty good, and you can find the textbook for it on 1lib.us. Of course, if you already know GNU/Linux, then I guess look for internship programs at cloud providers.

Usually when there's a fear of asking stupid questions, it's incites posturing and sickness.
Some questions can be adequately searched, certainly.
Yet if you follow this rule explicitly, then you'll find dead discussions and, frankly, I mean, why even bother discussing?
Maybe a better marker would be the level of earnestness they have.
Someone who is earnest wouldn't continue to ask the same questions, forget things, show no original thought, etc

The intrinsic nebulous nature of language, I think, /requires/ someone to ask a 'dumb' question to get back to reality.
Otherwise you eventually start talking past each other.
Or talk about a whole lot of nothing while trying to sound as though you've everything in the bag. I don't know.
Maybe we're all at the point where it's pointless anyway.

I've dealt with my fair share of disinterested people just looking for a quick solution many times in my life.
It can be frustrating, you can dismiss them as idiots if you like - or maybe they're the smart ones, because they're more attentive toward reality than those buried deep in config files and wirespace nonsense.

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 am wondering how I could build a Moreno Crypto miner in C++ but don't no where to start.

I want to build something like xmrig.com and would like it to connect to minexmr.com using port 4444 and 4443.

I have looked for sample code but couldn't find any that meet my criteria.

Also I would like this to be less the 100 lines of code if it isn't unreasonable.

My biggest question where I get the hashes to decrypt.

 No.796

Can't tell if you're serious or just another botnet miner trying to get us to do your work for you.
>probably doesn't know programming in C++ because it's not feasible in 100 lines
>needs it to be a certain size limit almost like its a payload
If you're serious about this, go onto github and look at some projects. Read some documentation. No one's going to do this for you

 No.811

You're missing some significant knowledge here. I'm going to assume you're a kid and not a retarded 36 year old pajeet so I'll cut you some slack.

-Get a textbook which has you write small programs that require understanding of computer science algorithms. SICP is a classic but it's in LISP. Not sure why you want C++ since it doesn't appear you're very familiar with it. Unless you understand these concepts you don't have much of a chance of building something comparable to xmrig. This knowledge will remain valuable no matter what language you use.
-Once you understand the basic programming concepts, go to https://www.getmonero.org/resources/developer-guides/ and get an understanding of how the mining actually works.

If you just want to make some monero, you don't need to build a miner, just use off the shelf ones. However, it's not always most profitable to mine monero directly (especially if you're using a GPU or something). Check out moneroocean.stream, it's a multi coin mining pool that pays only in monero. They have guides on how to set it up, keep trying until you get it.
