I'm hacking on some Scheme code and noticed this… Thank you Geiser, very useful info.


I finished it but I am not satisfied. It could have had more examples on the main techniques, like how to construct the totality claims and such. It did not feel like by the end I understood the main principles, if there were any.

Actually, thinking about it a bit more, I think I get it now.


On my personal website.


Nice little website, good job!

AMD won

That's what I use, so I guess I win too?


Using Ryzen AMD CPU as well here.


Apple announced that they will be using their own chips; I wonder how that will effect x86's monopoly on desktop computing.


It probably won't. Macs already had compatibility issues with things made for PCs (e.g. Linux), so I doubt widening that gap further will change much. Then again, I tend to be continuously surprised at what kind of cues tech companies take from Apple. Like, it didn't surprise me at all when iPhone abandoned headphone jacks, but I was absolutely baffled when other phone companies followed suit.
If anything breaks the x86 monopoly, I really hope it's something open source like RISC-V and not just companies trying to copy Apple's dumb bullshit. Who am I kidding though, that's not gonna be the case.

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 were saying how you rolled your own.
There's nothing better to do here but to reply to bait. Nobody really cares about this place.
Nice projection. Nobody likes it when shit is shilled. Being an imageboard doesn't mean free speech extremism. I don't even like lain. Are you a laincel?

>I don't even like lain.
Come say that to my face, motherfucker!


Nothing wrong with a little shilling every once in a while
>I don't even like lain. Are you a laincel?
Why don't you like lain? I enjoyed the the show and the topics that it introduced, like surveillance and the wired. I thought this was a technology and anime imageboard. Theres even a Lain board. Is she too loli for you?

all you guys are faggots and losers and a are ruining backwater boards with your autistic/incel/neet/ shit it was never about that

your identity is fucking anonymous stop powerleveling and spilling your life all over the internet

>I don't even like lain.
MODS ban please thats like going to an IRA meeting and praising the english


I can help you, message me at XMPP, loin@xmpp.is
I hope its not too late.

What makes the graphical interface of proprietary software superior to that of Free Software solutions? I know that people like to complain about GIMP and others, but I got pretty used to it at this point and never used proprietary alternatives. Are they really that much better? What's the difference?

>And I don't feel like using WSL.
As someone who uses it for work - WSL is surprisingly non-awful. And having a decent shell and utilities around makes Windows much more tolerable.


The Godot (game engine) discord server had a room where people would post RMS memes. They also had the command .rms.

So one day I was curious and watched a talk of RMS.
And because I'm rational, I could see how objectively everything this man was saying made sense.

Became free a few weeks after. Never looked back. Best choice of my life.


Embrace, extend, and extinguish


We are already at the extend phase.




How are these videos made? It looks like some kind of animating software and not hand drawn, right?


Freaky. I think they draw a couple images and use animation to fill in the rest

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?

lainchan decline era user detected


people like you are the reason there are millions of small imageboards instead of a couple of big ones


lainchan is being killed by mods who throw warns in every possible direction and remove anything they personally do not like. And since walls of text about politics, drugs and gay shit don't touch their feelings, this is exactly what you will see. Because for generating any other kind of content - even by creating a desktop thread, where title speaks for itself - you get warned for being "not informative enough", or your post gets removed.

I'm personally tired of shitposting. Meta-shitposting is fine since at least it is something new and unique, limited to one little community, it develops its culture. Seeing the same kinds of posts with le funi memes over and over again is tiring.


lainchan was on its last legs since the arisu split, then after "small" imageboards became cool it was the most targeted one since it was the best one, a while later a the fall of 8chan brought all the stragglers were looking for an alternative because the other boards suck(including 8chan) not realizing they are the reason that it sucks and whenever they go they will bring the decline with them.

this thread makes me physically sick


>I feel like there isn't enough space for shitposting.
I feel like the internet has enough space for anonymous shitposting as it is.

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.


Try asking on textboard.org maybe.


Is my thread not welcome here?

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.

There was this talk at LibrePlanet 2020 by someone from the Open Source Initiative(!) about some current practices that companies employ to appear as part of the Free Software movement without actually adhering to the principles of software freedom.
