Is there a guide which will teach you everything that Lain knows? I'm looking for a complete collection of resources on computing, things that Lain would likely know. I will start with some basics.

Ludovico technique


Does it terrify anyone else that the ludovico technique from A Clockwork Orange is 100% possible in real life.\

And does anyone know a time in history or a government who use this technology or a technology similar to it in real life?

AI assisted programming

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.

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.

Brave browser supports IPFS websites

The Distributed Wired is coming, anons. Just at the time that we need it most, too.

>The Brave browser recently added support for the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol in its beta release channel (desktop only).

>IPFS is a peer-to-peer (P2P) protocol that can be used in web browsers to visit websites that are hosted by the website’s visitors instead of a central web server.
>This is called the distributed web.
>When you open an IPFS link (ipfs://example/) in Brave, it will open it using a public web-gateway server by default. Gateways are public web servers that proxy content from the IPFS network via a traditional web server.

Does anyone here use plan 9/9front?
Not my picture, but i've been working on moving my work flow over to it.

ave mostly just had hurdles with hardware support (motherboard/buggy eufi firmware related issues)
other than that, I am liking it a lot. Might do drivers on here

Also, if your the type of user who is used to googling quick fixes, you might not like this, there's a lot of mandatory reading.

Code Reviews

What do you look for in a code review?

To be honest I just try to understand the code and the changes, which means that most of the time I point out things that hinder comprehension, like misleading variable names, overly complex approaches, and sometimes bugs in the logic or missing corner cases. But I feel like most of my comments are just nitpicking and I am wasting everyone's time.

Free Software GUI

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?

Verifying AGPL compilance?

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.

You can download any paper from ACM for free, until June 30, 2020! Quickly grab what you couldn't even find on sci-hub!

Don't know what to read? The Computing Surveys journal is full of papers that give an overview to the state of the art in many topics, it's always a good way to discover new problems, challenges and solutions: https://dl.acm.org/journal/csur

ImageBoards

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
