What are you working on, /g/?
105 posts and 43 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


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.


if you would like to make a study group on this board I would be amenable to joining and going through your textbooks
although I would request to see the titles you're going through first


File: 1642481757482.png (972.64 KB, 1280x720, structure and interpretati….png)

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


File: 1642551673388.png (983.27 KB, 1258x1374, 1879234572345.png)

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.
Not convinced Scheme is the way forward


>especially the lower level stuff
I should've mentioned I'm starting from near zero here. Besides some codemonkey experience in Python, C, and Lua.
>If you get anything out of SICP, I would like to know.
I'll keep you posted Anon!

i know musics are basically just changing chords (i believe), so how do i make sure the chords from one to another, sort of follow the song im try to play? like the chord of the song "jinglebell" at "jing""gle" and "bell", would be ay least three notes/chords but what are they exactly and why exactly? sorry maybe i am abit improvisational than following the sheets….

since this is /a/ any jpop is also welcome to be of lesson… like maybe guilty crown's departure or hxh ohayou

You know you can learn things by practice rather than trying to master everything within the safety of theory alone, right? It's okay to make something that is shit. It's the only way to get better.


>>462 been awhile and i dont feel like i am imporving. i remember some guys used to grow his online social media in 3 years and get some outrageous awards which i couldnt get despite using the same platform for 5 years and even went around trying to boost my crowd through digital shortcuts while he probably plays game day and night

pretty sure that's quite a statement for me that i might not improve as much without some… external resources. a good one. so im not gonna try anymore because my one day effort value just dont stack up to another person's 5 hour a day tryouts i guess.


>>462 also i ve been playing music for awhile now and theyre all shit and i ve practically learn nothing. everysingle day but nothing lol

Learn music theory. Basically, a scale is a set of notes that we perceive as sounding good together. The Major scale is happy, Minor is sad. C Major is CDEFGAB. A chord is multiple notes played at once, chords made of notes from the same scale sound good together. A chord has a root note which is basically the note it's built out of, you get a C Major chord with the first scale degree of the C Major scale, C, the third scale degree, E, and the fifth scale degree, G. Different chords "resolve" or transition in a satisfying way to other chords. In C Major scale, An F Major Chord sounds good resolving into a G Major Chord, which sounds good resolving into a C Major chord, which can go toany chord in the scale. So a very common chord progression is CMajor, F Major, G Major, C Major.

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.
I am looking for things like this but complete, assembled together in one huge, nonrepetitive volume.

>She also learns C in class
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.

mood: being so autistic that you single-handedly managed to get StackOverflow blocked in China by posting Xi Jinping Winnie the Pooh memes

>Is StackOverflow blocked in China?

>Stack Overflow is generally accessible in China.
>However, it is getting occasionally blocked, thanks to Ciro Santilli, who includes banned keywords in his name.
>Ciro Santilli's girlfriend was a Falun Gong practitioner and was prosecuted by the Chinese government. Ciro then adds many filtered keywords in China in his StackOverflow username. His stated goals include "increase the cost of censorship" via making China "lose money with worse IT".

Ciro also has a very interesting website, with many articles arranged in a tree. From the article on "ASCII porn":
>Here's one of the Chinese government fucking 1 million Chinese people in the ass during the Tiananmen Square Protests, which was undoubtedly one of the largest gang bangs of the late 20th century:

Why not visit https://cirosantilli.com/ TODAY?

Well, holding close to the hearth of computing, let's simulate this thread as our mainframe room on campus
So, what are you working on?


im hoping op comes back to reply to u


Back then it was probably like getting an opportunity to drive a Lamborghini.


I am not really working on anything computer related, and we have a thread for that anyway: >>211

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

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.

im 20 and i basically chose imageboards and forums over social media offically a bout a year ago, and its made me look like more of a loser and i now have basically no one to talk to but i feel more at home at least
i spend most of my time with no one but my own presence.
id be fucking surprised if i were to ever find a permanent group or family from a board or anything of the sort, let alone a partner
discord is a hellscape and each day i get more tempted to delete my account and never look back, i regret making it back in 2015. its the only thing i cant bring myself to delete and move on to find people that are more like me..
irc is full of people beyond my level of jaded that i just cant relate with either because theyre like in their 30s-40s or theyre so far gone they have such a twisted view on the world its disheartening to say the least
not saying that i dont, but some people are worse than others


>>3301 social media/discord must be taken in well-regulated doses, and that goes for the more draining of irl interactions as well. if you find a niche in discord that isn't populated servers, and it over the years becomes a place you talk to friends rather than communities, than there's some good there, but that isn't without it's trial and error (but I mean, irl goes the same way as well.)
it's unfortunate when the only people that can be connected with cannot be found irl, but only through the wired. it's still a situation many including myself face.
the lasting things seem to always happen by 'chance,' and that seems to be something that can't be planned for or decided on as many things like that are

I think everyone has their own interpretation. Rewatch it several times, and eventually you'll find something for yourself.

Good fiction pertaining to the internet or an internet is really hard to come by. When it does come by though, it hits with force.
I've been running Lancer for over a year now and I've always appreciated the inclusion of HORUS as one of the setting's major figures. One of the best pieces of fiction I've read pertaining to not just the internet, but the nuances of internet culture and how it affects the physical world.
What are some other examples of really good internet-related cyberpunk writing?

Better coloration.


Grab an adapter. I have an HDMI to VGA and there is also DVI-D to VGA




I do, led screens hurt my eyes and I just like crt.


I have one as 3rd monitor, but the adapter that I recently bought was a scam. 24+1 with only 2 rows of pins topkek. Gonna need to buy another one I guess.

Learn and be curious.


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.


>>774 everyone hates me asking too much
>>775 i know linuxes and its protocols. but i still cant pass all the 5 cent certification tests after studying and the biggest license cost like hundred buck or so… it s nuts


>>775 I'm going to - since windows 10 has been a source of insanity and frustration for years in my case.

What are you dreaming about? Do you believe that they have a meaning?
Maybe someone knows how to lucid dream?
5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


dreamt that i was fucking my roomate, also dreamt that my roomate hooked me up with a cute girl


I had a lucid dream a week ago. It felt like I was completely in control. Nothing interesting happened though, and then I woke up. My dreams have gone from extremely violent, where I fend off attackers with knives to extremely mundane where I never remember them.


keep dreaming about fucking my moms friend


Today I dreamt of going on a vacation.


I dreamt of encountering an old alien friend. she didnt have a body. she possessed me and overwhelmed my perception with her bright light crystals. the light seemed to be red, but also white and just everything, even glowing dark. my body went into paralysis. a third arm manifested from my body, i choked that arm because it tried to kill me. for some reason i let go of that arm as i realized it was no threat, I realised it was all me. i had two arms as soon as the realisation struck. she brought forth a lot of emotions, till the point I couldnt distinguish hers from mine anymore. those emotions were very important to me. I sadly cannot remember them well. those emotions were pain, self hatred and anger, though, in a good context. i enjoyed that state of consciousness for as long as the dream went on. that dream was 3 days ago (I have only slept one night since then), I've been hoping she would reach out to me again, she has I guess. using the vessel of a blonde with blood covered anime girl wearing a blue dress. upon waking up she sung to me "mina mina mina yuri yuri yuri" I understood this as "I love everyone, I love everyone, I love everyone" those words were so intense for me that everything became white again.
