If Curry–Howard correspondence is true and proofs are programs, why don't software engineers just write proofs instead of programs? That we they wouldn't have to worry about proving their programs correct since they would be already proofs.

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.

Is there any new, up and coming technology that makes you excited? I feel like everything new I hear about is either boring or outright designed to make our lives worse.

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?

Running a chan

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?

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.

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

Arch; the Bad, the Ugly, the Worse

Good morning, evening and night, /g/. I'd like to talk to you about a pretty popular but lacking and somewhat horrible distro that you're all aware of; Arch GNU/Linux.
