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?

Where can I buy a server to use as a personal vpn that google won't captcha rape me on??

Hello /g/, let's share some neat terminal/tui programs shall we?

Never heard about glances, although I've been using bashtop which is probably a bit heavy on system resources but it looks really nice. Thanks for the recommendation, looks cool.

NetHogs is a small ncurses network monitoring tool. It will list connection speed or amount of data sent/recieved by process. It's not without it's quirks, but it's a handy tool.

I have htop, nethogs and sensors running constantly. Very handy resources. Also, Id like to recommend gallery-dl and image-scraper. Very useful for archiving images. gallery-dl has a set number of websites it works on but offers more features like login capability and json scraping info whereas image-scraper is more of a multipurpose tool which can dl from anywhere but has less features.

Learn LISP programming language, lain programs in LISP on her NAVI and HandiNAVI in the show and even on her PC in the game. I am partial to the Steel Bank Common LISP (SBCL) implementation, but also check out Scheme which is a minimalist spinoff of LISP which doesn't have lists as central to its design.
She also learns C in class but I don't think you will want to touch that if you are just starting out (or at all, it's very outdated), learn C# or Python first.

Github just announced their "copilot": https://copilot.github.com/

What do you think about it? To me it sounds like someone was upset that programmers tend to enjoy the creative side of their job so they outsourced it to an AI. But don't worry, you won't loose your job, you are still useful for debugging and fixing the randomly generated mess your AI overlord produces in the name of efficiency.

I’m kinda spooked but I don’t mind. I knew that this would happen, it’s why I shy away from anything that’s not self-hosted so I’m not a part of it. Kinda excited to see what it brings since you can’t really stop it.

 No.716

>>714
I wonder if it will catch on, writing specifications in natural language and then debugging the randomly generated code sounds a lot more effort than just writing the code yourself. At least when you are debugging code written by another human you can assume that they had a reason to write the code the way it is, but figuring out what the generated code actually does, is that correct, and if not, how to make it correct, sounds a lot harder.

It makes me wonder what kind of work the people excited about this do, where this is the actual bottleneck. I know that even if the AI could write the same code as I do, it wouldn't drastically change my job, because that's not the actually hard part of software engineering in my field.

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?

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.

there is nothing wrong or extreme about the concept of "free speech"
allowing people to talk shit on your own physical property or website has nothing to do with free speech
forbidding other people to say something in general, by law or other measurements is something a modern free society should look down on
it's the most basic tools to expose and to stop an oppressive and/or evil government/institution

If you don't like what people say, have you ever tried going out of their way? There are a lot of people in the world, you don't need to try to be friends with everyone. And you will surely not make yourself very likeable if you run around trying to take away people's voice.

I think the more popular a platform becomes, the more it has to hold up the values of free speech, especially when your own country benefited from this concept for centuries. That's why people look down on how the owners of Twitter and Facebook are behaving.

"wirechan.org" is a smaller website and I think it's perfectly fine to have a couple of rules, to behave nicely
freedom of speech exists to allow people to express their ideas freely without giving anyone the ability to shut you up, just because his opinion differs from theirs

Only by hearing many _VERY_ different opinions, can a society come to a good and healthy consensus.
If half of the people aren't allowed to give their honest opinion, any consensus formed will be very shaky as if it would only stand on one leg.

This thread is to discuss anprim, ecofash, any ecological or primitive ideology.

I think, generally, primitivist ideologies are healthy for both people and nature. I worried though about primitivist ideologies making the culture which take them up defenseless in any form of foreign conflict. as a result a highly suicidal choice for a society to take.

Got any points about it, put them here. If you think that any one of these ideologies are good or bad talk about it. Any philosophy about it put it here.

I guess primitivist views, especially if we just talk about just a little views (not like in completely being a retarded apple consumer) are very good for the individual. If that would be the case, the capitalist system, wouldn't just greenwash everything, but maybe actually destroying less nature. Maybe even look for ways to reduce plastic instead of just LARPing plastic as ecofriendly paper. But a full primitivist ideology sounds really retarded to me and reminds me of (where was it? maybe) kambodia, where that primitivist ruler killed all scholars and stuff like that.

It isn't good for keeping the achievements of a culture, now does it. That is a major complaint of it. The first man to discover the boom stick will rule over man.

>Do you think it is the captcha expiration that causes the excess load?
It is merely one item to check off the list.

>It does not make sense to me

>does the server just make new captchas without the client side asking for one?
No. The scheduleHandler has an expiration rescanning loop in expiredCaptcha that runs on a timeout of
>captchaExpiration * 1000 * 1
Notice that the callee, checkExpiredCaptchas, ends by handing off to expiredCaptcha again.

Well yeah, I had the great idea of trying it first time on my nearly 20y/o thinkpad. So compiling the kernel failed after 15hours and 40minutes and I have absolutely no idea what to do about it.
I still don't feel like it was for nothing.

I am about to get a job in this field, but is it really that deep? Everything I heared from Gentoo lately was something like
>Basically the optimization isn't worth it anymore because of fast computers / the compiling time makes it even
or:
>You're already using arch (actually artix) so there isn't that much anymore you're going to learn through getting into gentoo

I thought both were invalid arguments, but it's surprising to hear the opposite.

That obviously does not make it better in any way, but what else are we going to do? You see, the wired is ded as a ded cat. We know it, everywhere we go, we meet people that know it.
