If internet is real life, then punch me.

A lot of internet is an extension of real life, and this is one of few places that still isn't.

I tried Blogger and Wordpress and I had a bad experience with them, considering that the ToS became more restrictive over the years.

What is the reason for the govt to spy on us? Do they really do it or is it just schizo shit? If they really did, how come the school shooter who says he will shoot up a school in instagram DMs the day before the shooting, doesn't get caught? Or is it that they don't think school shooters are more likely to be on sekrit clubs like 4chan, as proved by the neoouroncha shit how the japanese police was monitoring 2channel for violent people and caught the neomugicha copycat before he did anything, so they didn't pay any attention to normies threatening shit?

It's not like even they enforce their political ideology and curb wrongthink by spying on us. What do they get from spying on people? Ross Ulbricht was caught because of bad opsec and a simple google search, they can't even track a literal drug cartel with all the spyware they use.

Control and paranoia.

Yes they do it. Mass-surveillance is pretty easy to do since everyone is on social media and has a goyphone.

>how come the school shooter who says he will shoot up a school in instagram DMs the day before the shooting, doesn't get caught?
Remember Waco? Can you trust your government? ((( They ))) get more money for the next budget if there are terrorist and school shooters. It's not just about pure money but also politics. 9/11 was known beforehand (dancing Israelis et. al.) but it wasn't stopped? Why? I bet it was because of money and the Patriot Act (and to get casus belli to attack middle eastern countries).

>>6476 (OP) 
They want absolute control and ownership of everything, from your body to this planet, to the universe. They can't track everything yet, but that is the goal, because they want a system of universal slavery that will last forever and that can never be opposed. Just look at what is happening in the world right now. Agenda 21 has already happened, and Agenda 2030 is being implemented right now. They are already trying to take away people's land and talking about banning car ownership. There is no amount of power that they will be satisfied with.

At this point government spying, and corporate spying is pretty-much-accepted-as-fact regardless of what they're actually doing.

the NSA spy-ops are generally seen as gov spying on citizens for stupid reasons. I don't have it personally, but there's a repost that details how there's a recon organization for the US armed forces that basically is the eyes for actual threats against our nation without the need for spying on citizens. 

I don't know, but I have three hypotheses on just why they spy on citizens.
Law Route - "War is changing, we need to look for threats within ourselves,"
Neutral Route - "Better safe than sorry, everyone else is doing it anyway,"
Chaos Route - "Nobody can be trusted, we will not survive an uprising without this,"

Believe it or not, most of the "wow, you're so paranoid for not having a facebook/instagram/google/pintrest/tiktok account, lol." types are either out-of-touch wannabe-influencers, shills, or bots.

Most normies are actually sick of feeling like all their tech is watching them, they're just afraid and don't know what to do to fix the problem. Besides, it's not like anyone with a cell phone had a choice in that their personal data is being treated like another piece in a spreadsheet to be used as a convenient blackmail tool.

>Most people lack both internal monologe and internal visualization
Very flawed statement. All people are capable of dreaming and therefore internal monologue and vis. It's just that most people can't change their brainwaves at will which requires training. For instance, a martial artist's fighting stance is a way for them to calm their nerves and enter the zone, reminding them of their training - which they have memorized by heart.

This imagination isn't limited to dreaming, you can put someone into a daydream state. Let's put on the special incense to calm your nerves down and put you into such state, there you go, now you have it. What if someone blows you the Devil's Breath while on vacation? Now for sure you WILL develop your very own realistic imagination, visuals, voices while awake.

With that said, there is really no "NPC" meme. Maybe if you're crippled by birth or lack chromosomes it would prove to be difficult (or even the opposite!).

>huerstic for consciousness
Another thing you're dead wrong about. Consciousness is constantly manipulated by the subconscious. When you go live in the woods you will dream of being chased by a predator this is due to your brains survival "patch" work, your subconscious will now be implanted with such thought of danger  forcing you to be more extremely careful in the woods but what happens if the billion dollar Ad industry also have thoroughly researched on this and even uses techniques far beyond the average one's comprehension? Let's not even forget about intelligence agencies that abuse subliminal programming and psychology operations in the daily. Even military use psychological warfare (over internet or cyberspace, aka cyber warfare), you can read and download their academic papers if you don't believe me.

Most of consciousness is pretty much hijacked BUT there is one problem to "them". This was the imageboards. Imageboards are free from such idiosyncrasies caused by intruders let alone these narcissists >>6019 Anon talks about as they likely are the odd one out (namefags btfo). Imageboards is a free rein.
We are the hivemind immune to bullshit, it's like the complete opposite of a herd being manipulated, imageboard is where the free hivemind can olny exist in todays internet world (contrary to plebbit) and of which hivemind develops its own superintelligence, both the conscious and subconscious simply by shitposting, larping, and memeing, through words and the logos we retain what is important, passed on like memes. This is the TRUE consciousness. True Logos. Just like the when the prophets wrote the Bible which are passed on and protected.

Elon was absolutely right when he said picrel. Most people are manipulated by light, the LCD screens all people hold all day are part of their OWN consciousness. We are however different and obverse to such, we are the mind inside the LCD screen - the very reason why "they" are actively trying to subvert and attack imageboards especially also imageboards that are focused on the paranormal and occultism aspects.

The NPC meme is absolutely real. Being able to enter into a dream state does not mean that you have the capacity for internal visualization or internal monologue in the waking state. I don't understand what you are even trying to say here. I do find it funny your argument includes a fucking Twitter screencap from grifter Musk who is arguably the closest match to the tribulation schizos definition of an anti-christ (a universally loved figure) who wants to put brain chips in people's skull.
Inner speech is a layer of thought on top of "cerebration". NPCs simply lack the inner voice.  People that think with words do both.

First off, Bold claims bro, but there are too many prophets this day and age, far too many hands churning the waters of fate, spreading fearmongering and screaming hopes to their dire futures possibly-becoming reality.

Second. Centralized communication circles become corrupted shitheaps because the administration is either corrupted, replaced by, or has always been malicious actors. That's what happened to Reddit. Reddit just has the additional problem of the narcissist-dream of having a score to your posts. It's why the dead internet theory is a load of shit- it's not because of anything about bots, it's because people have patterns and search engines are tailored to an extremely-narrow pattern.

Third. ((( the usual suspects ))) may have billions of psych research on their side, but they make the mistake of thinking they're immune to their own tactics. Hell, their tactics at the end of the day, are based off of really old, tried-and-true manipulative-narcissist-parent bullshit that has existed since biblical times.

The whole "manipulated by light, and LCD screen," shit though, I somewhat agree with, just for different reasons. Nowadays popular media-outlets try to make people chase the "wiki walk" effect, and have tuned algorithms to try and keep people as distracted as possible for views, clicks and ad revenue. Same with mobile games, but that's mostly beca

Colemak confirmed

Better layouts are faster, but the upper end of qwerty speeds are faster than you need for programming and creative writing. Being proficient with qwerty allows you to sit at nearly any computer desk in the english speaking world and blast out 90 wpm without even thinking about it or configuring an alternate layout.

Something I've noticed with the failure of art teaching in schools is something that parallels with the failure of teaching programming in schools: Lack of structure.

When I say 'structure' I mean the teaching of craftwork that can be used as baselines to make things solid, sound and good. pic related is one of 25 pages dedicated to guidelines and overall structure of drawing figures. Anyone can draw or make art, but everyone knows the difference between good and bad art- except for idiots, that is. 

What I'd like to know, is how this can be paralleled to it's programming equivalent. I hear from programmers about how important math is- and I agree, but my problem with that, is that math's emphasis feels like it's either for magus-tier programming, or is so basic that it immediately fades into the background. Because of this, I feel like I've learned all I can at this stage but nobody knows anything on the level up except for pros who want peers rather than students.

I've heard "just do it" or "practice dude" but here's the thing: practice doesn't make perfect, it makes permanent. Trying to undo the damage of bad habits is effort on top of learning things the right way, the only saving grace is that is gets easier as you do it more. 

In conclusion, what is good programming structure? How can use it to be a better programmer and actually feel more than a just like a permanewb?

Alas, it’s not a failure, it’s the entire point. See also: semi-literacy training (teaching to read a letter based alphabet not letter by letter and/or with artificial interruptions). This produces all those TL/DRs who cannot read anything longer than a slogan. It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

By now, it’s not even intentional, just intrinsic: everyone in educrap is a less-than-bright schizoid trained at parroting  the previous iteration of garbage and unable to do anything else. Garbage In, Garbage Out, in a feedback loop.
The thing with schizoids is that after some point they have trouble understanding “structure” at all. Thus everything gradually turns into Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge grade nonsense.

> In conclusion, what is good programming structure? 
Just like with everything: whatever fits the practical usage. Obviously, there are several approaches. And lots of bad practices. But even a bad practice beats a good air castle.

I've had taken a break form programming since mid 2020. Lost overall interest and such. But now it's quite hard to get back at it and get any motivation, especially having learnt how shitty the job market for programmers really is. 

So my question, is it even worth getting back at this? I liked it as a hobby but I don't want to be a code monkey in the future. Would I be better off becoming a teacher or studying medicine?

Please let me know.

Use the fifo plugin and set up ffmpeg filter chain, outputs to raw hw. You should nice it realtime.
Surely, it's locked to 48000 despite having an option to set it to 0 (auto for hi quality dacs) and 44100 minimum clock (sample rate). What it does is it upscales anything from 44100 to 48000 even the 44100 I suspect is basically 44100->48000->44100 and as we know it's not a clean conversion especially with a natively low quality resampler method and worse, I suspect it does it twice to cheat out 44100 or maybe even an 88200 output may actually be 88200->48000->88200 (double dirty).

When I hardset it to 44100 I get very distorted sound from my music player, and it doesn't even play well with other plugins like pitch/tempo and cause severe distortion maybe because it becomes 32bit float idk.

I tried using their native "pipewire custom/house resampler" in the terminal and confirmed it is suboptimal.
I can convert music using sox and other resamplers out there and it's quite fast, pipewire's house resampler has issues when I set clock to 44100 even with a sweep tone, there are severe distortion or noises when viewed in spectogram/sound viewer.
Either there's a problem with their maths or 44100 is illegal or problematic (44100->48000->44100 double dirty resampling) with their customized resampler.
What was the point of customizing a resampler, it has worse latency and higher cpu time than existing and perfectly fine resamplers we have already and also about 200% slower than sox-vhq. Wou
