What will happen if section 230 is nuked?
>Section 230
Unlikely to be completely removed, but it might be revised as dup's last act or during Biden's term. These hypothetical revisions and what they might change and affect is what should really be discussed. When a businessman tells you something extreme like this, it's always a way to make meeting somewhere in the middle seem like a good option. However, in this case, both options are shit.

If the revisions are serious and make running any interactive service away from tech giants' infrastructure, migrating to alternative protocols like Tor and I2P would be a way out. But as of this moment, no imageboard software compatible with running over a network where a poster's identity is not tied to an IP address exists. There have been some truly autistic solutions proposed, such as Freenet's web of trust. But in my opinion those don't mitigate excessive shitposting but rather clusters people into social bubbles and circlejerks.

Lots of sites got deplatformed by jewflare and hosts already even with section 230 intact. This may scratch FAGMART just a bit, for their formidable army of lawyers. It will take more than that for the government to end the power of them. By then, the government will do the censoring.

>Lots of sites got deplatformed
That's not what section 230 protects you against. A platform is not responsible for the content its users post, barring illegal things with the Good Samaritan provision. So, as things are right now, if someone spams CP on your board, you are not liable for hosting CP provided your remove the offending material in a timely manner (see the provision). With it gone, you are now a lot more liable. By which I mean you will have to shovel a lot more shekels into the pockets of lawyers to get you out of it without an easy law such as section 230. So when you say
>This may scratch FAGMART just a bit
think about how hard that will scratch anyone that isn't.
>By then, the government will do the censoring
It's a very bold assumption on your part that FAGMART don't already operate together with government entities.

Yes. It is already bad enough now. See 8ch, somebody uploaded a Word manifesto and site is nuked. What difference does it make without section 230 anyways? If I doddle up a 0-day word docs, this site is kill in a too.

Does nobody here remember what happened to Backpage? That entire site being taken down and its operators arrested for the content users posted proves that section 230 never meant much.

Later they changed the law with FOSTA-SESTA which goes to show that they'll do whatever they want and change the law afterwards. Anyone who complains about about ex post facto laws must be a pedophile. That the owners of Backpage won awards from law enforcement for helping to fight sex trafficking and commendations from sex worker groups for helping make their job safer prior to being targeted doesn't matter.

Right now they're trying same thing against pornhub and they'll probably succeed.

I recall some sort of messaging service that used some sort of radio and required about $50 of equipment, it was open source but I forget what it was called.

What makes the current internet good is how ubiquitous it is. You can even make obfuscation protocols and additional routing networks on top of it thanks to that. You are talking about radiowave-based meshnets, which are mostly an enthusiast thing. This means you won't even get what little anonymity we have at the moment, not to mention other things such as triangulation of sender based on said air waves and how in a lot of countries an absolute majority of radio bandwidth is regulated very strictly, to the point of encryption being illegal.
Encryption is illegal in some countries for HAM.

Gentoo Linux to discontinue LibreSSL support

While it will still be possible for expert users to use LibreSSL on their systems, we are only going to provide support for OpenSSL-based systems.  Most importantly, we are no longer going to maintain downstream patches for LibreSSL support -- it will rely on either package upstreams merging such patches themselves, or LibreSSL upstream finally working towards better OpenSSL compatibility.

I honestly shudder to imagine why the flying fuck it's bundling its own copy of openssl to begin with, but I didn't care too much because it was only for the build.

Gotta love how they make this sound like a bad thing when it's actually one of the few things Windows does better than Linux because it means Windows programs can handle OOM situations properly. You can enable strict commit checking on Linux with vm.overcommit_memory=2, but there is no low memory signal, so you only get failing allocations; sometimes in an innocent program rather than the bloatmeister who caused it.

Probably because your problematic process was coincidentally the biggest memory hog at the time. This isn't always true and the OOM killer will still shoot innocents in that case today. This is a fundamental problem, the kernel can't magically intuit who's the real culprit.
>So can any program that uses low memory notification in Linux. It just didn't force programs to follow it.

Compilers have a vulnerability regarding Unicode and bi-directional text
The bug is in the Unicode spec
>https://www.trojansource.codes (remember to download the paper.)

<We present a new type of attack in which source code is maliciously encoded so that it appears different to a compiler and to the human eye.
<This attack exploits subtleties in text-encoding standards such as Unicode to produce source code whose tokens are logically encoded in a different order from the one in which they are displayed
<We present working examples of Trojan-Source attacks in C, C++, C#, JavaScript, Java, Rust, Go, and Python.

<The Rust Security Response WG was notified of a security concern affecting
<source code containing "bidirectional override" Unicode codepoints: in some
<cases the use of those codepoints could lead to the reviewed code being
<different than the compiled code.
<This is a vulnerability in the Unicode specification, and its assigned
<identifier is CVE-2021-42574. While the vulnerability itself is not a rustc
<flaw, we're taking proactive measures to mitigate its impact on Rust
<## Overview
<Unicode has support for both left-to-right and right-to-left languages, and to
<aid writing left-to-right words inside a right-to-left sentence (or vice versa)
<it also features invisible codepoints called "bidirectional override".
<These codepoints are normally used across the Internet to embed a word inside a
<sentence of another language (with a different text direction), but it was
<reported to us that they could be used to manipulate how source code is
<displayed in some editors and code review tools, leading to the reviewed code
<being different than the compiled code. This is especially bad if the whole
<team relies on bidirectional-aware tooling.

Log4Shell: RCE 0-day exploit found in log4j 2, a popular Java logging package
On Thursday (December 9th), a 0-day exploit in the popular Java logging library [Apache] log4j (version 2) was discovered that results in Remote Code Execution (RCE) by logging a certain string. Almost all versions of log4j version 2 are affected: 2.0-beta9 <= Apache log4j <= 2.14.1 
<Related: https://news.sophos.com/en-us/2021/12/17/inside-the-code-how-the-log4shell-exploit-works/

Log4Shell Update: Second log4j Vulnerability Published (CVE-2021-44228 + CVE-2021-45046)
After the log4j maintainers released version 2.15.0 to address the Log4Shell vulnerability, an additional attack vector was identified and reported in CVE-2021-45046. Our research into this shows that this new CVE invalidates previous mitigations used to protect versions 2.7.0 <= Apache log4j <= 2.14.1 from Log4Shell in some cases. You may still be vulnerable to Log4Shell (RCE) if you only enabled the formatMsgNoLookups flag or set %m{nolookups} when you also set data in the ThreadContext with attacker controlled data. In this case, you must upgrade to >= 2.15.0 or else you will still be vulnerable to RCE.

Systemd 250 released
systemd-homed now makes use of UID mapped mounts for the home areas. If the kernel and used file system support it, files are now internally owned by the "nobody" user (i.e. the user typically used for indicating "this ownership is not mapped"), and dynamically mapped to the UID used locally on the system via the UID mapping mount logic of recent kernels. This makes migrating home areas between different systems cheaper because recursively chown()ing file system trees is no longer necessary. 


        * Support for encrypted and authenticated credentials has been added.
          This extends the credential logic introduced with v247 to support
          non-interactive symmetric encryption and authentication, based on a
          key that is stored on the /var/ file system or in the TPM2 chip (if
          available), or the combination of both (by default if a TPM2 chip
          exists the combination is used, otherwise the /var/ key only). The
          credentials are automatically decrypted at the moment a service is
          started, and are made accessible to the service itself in unencrypted
          form. A new tool 'systemd-creds' encrypts credentials for this
          purpose, and two new service file settings LoadCredentialEncrypted=
          and SetCredentialEncrypted= configure such credentials.

          This feature is useful to store sensitive material such as SSL
          certificates, passwords and similar securely at rest and only decrypt
          them when needed, and in a way that is tied to the local OS
          installation or hardware.

        * A new setting DefaultOOMScoreAdjust= is now supported in
          /etc/systemd/system.conf + /etc/systemd/user.conf that may be used to
          set the default process OOM score adjustment value for processes
          forked off the service manager. For per-user service managers this
          now defaults to 100, but for per-system service managers is left as
          is. This means that by default now services forked off the user
          service manager are more likely to be killed by the OOM killer than
          system services or the managers themselves.

        * The per-user service manager learnt support for communicating with
          systemd-oomd to acquire OOM kill information.

        * The TPM2/FIDO2/PKCS11 support in systemd-cryptsetup is now also built
          as a plug-in for cryptsetup. This means the plain cryptsetup command
          may now be used to unlock volumes set up this way.

        * Support for activating dm-integrity volumes at boot via a new file
          /etc/integritytab and the tool systemd-integritysetup have been
          added. This is similar to /etc/crypttab and /etc/veritytab, but deals
          with dm-integrity instead of dm-crypt/dm-verity.

        * A new unit systemd-boot-update.service has been added. If enabled
          (the default) and the sd-boot loader is detected to be installed, it
          is automatically updated to the newest version when out of date. This
          is useful to ensure the boot loader remains up-to-date, and updates
          automatically propagate from the OS tree in /usr/.

        * sd-boot can now parse Microsoft Windows' Boot Configuration Data.
          This is used to robustly generate boot entry titles for Windows.

        * systemd-analyze security gained a --profile option that can be used
          to take into account a portable profile when analyzing portable
          services, since a lot of the security-related settings are enabled
          through them.

        * systemd-analyze learnt a new inspect-elf verb that parses ELF core
          files, binaries and executables and prints metadata information,
          including the build-id and other info described on:

        * systemd-networkd will now once again automatically generate persistent
          MAC addresses for batadv and bridge interfaces. Users can disable this
          by using MACAddress=none in .netdev files.

        * bootctl and systemd-bless-boot can now be linked statically.

        * systemd-homed will now try to unmount an activate home area in
          regular intervals once the user logged out fully. Previously this was
          attempted exactly once but if the home directory was busy for some
          reason it was not tried again.

        * systemd-homed's LUKS2 home area backend will now create a BSD file
          system lock on the image file while the home area is active
          (i.e. mounted). If a home area is found to be locked, logins are
          politely refused. This should improve behavior when using home areas
          images that are accessible via the network from multiple clients, and
          reduce the chance of accidental file system corruption in that case.

        * systemd-resolved now listens on a second DNS stub address:
          (in addition to, as before). If DNS requests are sent to
          this address they are propagated in "bypass" mode only, i.e. are
          almost not processed locally, but mostly forwarded as-is to the
          current upstream DNS servers. This provides a stable DNS server
          address that proxies all requests dynamically to the right upstream
          DNS servers even if these dynamically change. This stub does not do
          mDNS/LLMNR resolution. However, it will translate look-ups to
          DNS-over-TLS if necessary. This new stub is particularly useful in
          container/VM environments, or for tethering setups: use DNAT to
          redirect traffic to any IP address to this stub.

      * systemd-repart no longer requires OpenSSL.

        * systemd-journald will no longer go back to volatile storage
          regardless of configuration when its unit is restarted.

        * The shutdown command learnt a new option --show, to display the
          scheduled shutdown.

ID mapping for mounted filesystems
Almost every filesystem (excepting relics like VFAT) implements the concept of the owner and group of each file; the higher levels of the operating system then use that information to control access to those files. For decades, it has usually sufficed to track a single owner and group for each file, but there is an increasing number of use cases wanting to make that ownership relative to the environment any given process is running in. Developers have been working for a few years to find solutions to this problem; the latest attempt is the ID-mapped mounts patch set from Christian Brauner.

In truth, the ID-mapping problem is not exactly new. User and group IDs for files only make sense across a management domain if there is a single authority controlling the assignment of those IDs. Since that is often not the case, network filesystems like NFS have had the ability to remap IDs for many years. The growth of virtualization and container technologies has brought the problem closer to home; there can be multiple management domains running on a single machine. The NFS ID-remapping mechanism is of little use if NFS itself is not being used.

German Court Rules Against Internet Security Non-Profit Quad9 In First Hearing Versus Sony Music Germany 

Global Internet Freedom Threatened by Copyright Ruling Targeting Unrelated DNS Operator

The Hamburg Regional Court today ruled that they would not suspend an existing injunction against Quad9 in a case filed by Sony Music Germany. The case centers around Sony Music’s demand that Quad9’s servers located in Germany stop resolving DNS names of third-party sites which are claimed to have URLs that contain copyright infringements.

There is no component of the claimed copyright infringement that Quad9 participates indirectly, nor is there any infringing data on Quad9’s servers, nor does Quad9 have any business relationship with the site in question. The injunction claim is only that Quad9, by allowing end-users to map internet names to IP addresses as part of its DNS resolution service, is legally obligated to stop resolving those names if demanded by parties claiming to be rightsholders.

Section 230 was illegal to begin with because it's literally a law passed by Congress abridging free speech.

The tech companies dug their own hole by not developing mechanisms to have mass communication sites that don't require moderation to be functional.

They were warned and I already handed out packets on how to restructure communication sites so they don't require editorialization to be usable. So the companies that already got their Section 230 free business model ready will take over the market as companies that bet on censorship continuing disappear in a flurry of spam and lawsuits. It takes as little as a month for people to forget about old sites, so it will be a major transfer of market power overnight.

When Section 230 goes down, it shouldn't be replaced with some other rules to allow censorship and enabling tech cartels to control entry to markets by just accusing other companies of being immoral and blacklisting them from common carrier services. 

It's their own fault if they didn't listen.

You tell me why, gcc is an implement of the standard. gcc isn't a rolling release and each version of it is locked to what it supports at that specific commit. Of course an implementation depends on a standard. An old implementation depends on an old standard makes perfect sense.
The problem is gcc is often bundled in toolchains that never gets updated. This often happens in vendor-patched toolchains for embedded platforms.

Emacs 28.1 is out!
- Native JIT compilation of elisp files using libgccjit* 
- The new NonGNU ELPA package archive is enabled by default alongside GNU ELPA (https://elpa.nongnu.org/)
- Text shaping with HarfBuzz and drawing with Cairo
- Support for loading SECure COMPuting filters**
- Much improved display of ((( Emoji ))) and Emoji sequences
- New system for documenting groups of functions
- A minor mode for context menus (context-menu-mode)
- Mode-specific commands
- Emacs shows matching parentheses by default
- Many improvements and extensions to project.el

*Emacs now optionally supports native compilation of Lisp files.
To enable this, configure Emacs with the '--with-native-compilation' option.
This requires the libgccjit library to be installed and functional,
and also requires GCC and Binutils to be available when Lisp code is
natively compiled.  See the Info node "(elisp) Native Compilation" for
more details.

If you build Emacs with native compilation, but without zlib, be sure
to configure with the '--without-compress-install' option, so that the
installed "*.el" files are not compressed; otherwise, you will not be
able to use JIT native compilation of the installed "*.el" files.

Note that JIT native compilation is done in a fresh session of Emacs
that is run in a subprocess, so it can legitimately report some
warnings and errors that aren't uncovered by byte-compilation.  We
recommend examining any such warnings before you decide they are

** Emacs now supports loading a Secure Computing filter.
This is supported only on capable GNU/Linux systems.  To activate,
invoke Emacs with the '--seccomp=FILE' command-line option.  FILE must
name a binary file containing an array of 'struct sock_filter'
structures.  Emacs will then install that list of Secure Computing
filters into its own process early during the startup process.  You
can use this functionality to put an Emacs process in a sandbox to
avoid security issues when executing untrusted code.  See the manual
page for 'seccomp' system call, for details about Secure Computing

* clasp-debug interface so that IDEs like SLIME can retrieve backtraces and more to present during debugging.
* Fixed many errors identified by the ansi-test-suite

Actually, I just use Emacs as a file manager (dired), WM (EXWM) and terminal emulator (ansi-term, term and eshell). And I do all of my text editing using ED!! ed is the STANDARD editor. I actually used to use Vim before I tried GNU Emacs. What convinced me to switch to Emacs was the ease of customization (by using M-x customize-themes, M-x customize and M-x list-packages) and the documentation: try C-h ? (GNU Emacs is described as "self-documenting" among other things.) GNU Emacs is also more beginner friendly because it is harder to lose your work since Emacs makes backups by default. Both editors are very powerful. You should try both and choose which one you like more.

>muh emacs pinky
Not a problem for me. You can remap ctrl to caps lock or use evil-mode (vi keybindings).

>Vim is already perfect.
NeoVim is a thing for a reason. ((( VimScript ))) sucks (NeoVim fixed this issue). Gvim GUI sucks (NeoVim got rid of it, and GNU Emacs has a proper GUI). If you use (Neo)Vim and want to get the same keybindings for another program, you must either select a program that has vim keybinding by default or you need to configure/patch it yourself. However, if you Emacs, you can just install a package and you have the Emacs keybindings (at its core, Emacs is an elisp environment).
Replies: >>5132
>it is harder to lose your work since Emacs makes backups by default
Vim also makes backups by default (as .*swp files) and asks to load them next time you open the same file. I will admit the undo functionality is fucky though, it is absolutely possible to lose something you just typed through some panicked or confused combination of u, ctrl+r, U, u, ctrl+r ...

Today's processors are TDP-bottlenecked above all and speculative execution is an extreme waster of energy and therefore TDP. I don't get why they don't just do away with such a harmful optimization beyond saying they have it in marketing material.
Replies: >>6233 >>6234
Because backdoors.
Speculative execution is not a waste of energy, the cpu can choose to do nothing but nearly the same amount of energy is used. Pipelining in CPU implies some cycles would be wasted every branch if there is no speculation.
In the following example, the processor cannot do anything while waiting for the result of the ALU
Fetch	Decode	ALU	Memory	Writeback
There must be a nop because the result of ADD is not available until ADD finishes its ALU stage. Speculative execution allows the CPU to pick a branch (or in some implementation both) and execute as if the result was available. If the prediction fails, we get branch misprediction.
Is it a security problem, but it does improve performance.

Not much point in supporting a crippled platform that can't even compile software and doesn't work.

NetBSD doesn't have this requirement but most of their ports don't actually work. The VAX port for instance can only run inside emulators, it's too slow to run on a real VAX with typical tasks like installing a program taking days. The Dreamcast port is completely unusable, it only runs on CDs which are read-only storage and running a single program from the base system can cause it to run out of memory because the Dreamcast only has 16MiBs.

If OpenBSD runs on a system, it works, being able to compile its own packages is a good minimum bar to pass.

Until and unless WAN access for client-side hardware with general-purpose computing capability is entirely cut off (e.g.: OnLive MicroConsole but without even CPU cores or RAM) it will always be possible to build an overlay network atop the Internet or whatever replaces it. Even without installing a special autism browser, for instance, there are webshit-runtime VPNs that can indirectly connect to TOR or whatever.

An argument I've been seeing lately, and I think I agree with, is that TPTB are are treading a balance between stigmatizing and pushing truly fringe elements off the normienet slow enough, versus censoring such banal content so soon that significant fractions of normalfags adopt tools like proxies & P2P.

I'm not sure what that tipping point is, but the situation in fashier turd-world regimes like Saudi Arabia or China where most of the online population uses private VPNs habitually, isn't something they want in the "core" countries where the kayfabe of liberal democracy is still necessary.

Especially with some of the more ideologically lolbert central figures of the current Silicon Valley establishment starting to admit centralization is flawed enough to (even if it's just cynical buzzword mongering for now) dip their toes in darknet-like "Web3" projects such as Block/Bluesky and Libra/Metaverse, I suspect the pacing with which the noose is tightened around the clearnet will become more precarious and desperate very soon.

In some cases this is true. For greater than 1200 km / 750 mile propagation conditions are not always favorable for high data throughput. The Network is still a meshed system but on a much larger scale. Each node can provide 300-400 miles of continuous coverage with consistently high performance. This drastically decreases the amount of nodes required for a complex network. To bridge a connection across continents still remains a challenge.

>28MHz of bandwidth 
Incorrect, far lower. The Network has 12 kHz to 24 kHz of usable "bandwidth" but multiplicatives of that in data throughput. Channel capacity and symbol rate are independent of bandwidth. In modern telecom and signal processing there are several methods of utilizing one shared frequency space across multiple independent channels. Schemas like  2x2 or 4x4 MIMO carry over to HF far better than expected. Unfortunately due to the current archaic state of the amateur radio hobby baby boomers insist on doing 50 baud FT8 instead of 500,000 baud  OFDM so you don't see any of this in practice.

But perhaps you will soon.
Replies: >>6825
>Radio waves only really work until someone decides to get a radar and destroy the network. 
Spread spectrum jamming over HF is a difficult task to accomplish even for an actor with unlimited resources at their disposal. Most of the jamming that occurs is done against fixed AM stations with known time schedules and operating frequencies. If what you mean by "radar" is interference that degrades signal quality created from over the horizon radar systems this can be isolated and removed from a signal almost entirely. There is a spatial component of every EM wave.  For that wave or signal to arrive it has to follow a path in space.  HF allows for a far greater degree of directionality and signal resilience. Certain schemas can allow for a complete obfuscation of the originating point of transmission entirely.
>Moreover we can use satellites that doesn't require authentication

>Channel capacity and symbol rate are independent of bandwidth

DRM D Mode can manage maybe 30kbps for a 20kHz channel. Any technique that can be used to squeeze more drops of blood from a few kHz of bandwidth, will yield proportionally greater returns from GHz of bandwidth. No matter how you slice it, shortwave links simply can't do more than an Mbps or so, in comparison to a single KU-band satellite spot beam doing hundreds of Mbps, terrestrial microwave at >10gbps, and optical at >100gbps per fibre.

How about if, assuming your config is actually new and not just copypasta'd from what would be an optional package in a binary distro, what you're trying to achieve with your build is similar to what some other people are interested in? Then some of (you) could maintain that as a package, regularly tested against the rest of the distro and better known to upstream for each release, which would make it less likely to break everyone's install including yours, reducing the amount of dicking around with configs any of you have to do.

>that's what distros are for
A totally correct description for distros, binaries or sources. Gentoo overlay, aur, all of them are packages users shared with everyone. Why do you think only binaries are not dicking around with configs?
>dicking around with configs
You seems to be very adverse to configuring your system and software, and you shouldn't be. Any user with a good understanding of their systems can do that with ease. Not only is it easy, it is also good for the user to gain more understanding of their system.
You also assume everyone is using the same architecture. My set of configs are used on arm and aarch64, in addition to x64.
Your argument against source distros is to be a binary distro by doing the source part of distro yourself? What the fuck are you on?

>Why do you think only binaries are not dicking around with configs?
Because if you don't make any meaningful change from defaults, you aren't doing anything a buildfarm hasn't already done for you.

Gosh, that's almost as amazing as each arch of a distro providing crosscompiled repos for each one.

If my source is altered in any way, I can check it. You only get the binary with no chance to inspect it.
My install(1) is compiled as well.
You just don't take security and integrity of the software you use seriously. Many people don't. There is nothing LARPing about compiling software, even without changes, just to make sure I still own my system completely.

Just because you have the source doesn't mean there's no backdoor. You have to actually read the source, which you are obviously not doing. And even then you can have a trusting trust situation.

>If my source is altered in any way, I can check it.
All package managers, source and binary, automatically check that what you download from the mirror is the same hash as what everyone else has downloaded.

Hardened Gentoo made sense when grsec was public and none of the compiler hardening was merged into upstream gcc. Compiling everything from source gave significant security improvements which were too harsh/unstable for a binary distro to deploy. Things like position Independent code + address space layout randomization, stack smashing protection, write xor execute etc. All these things are either picked up by binary distros now or impossible without kernel support.

on the 1650 there are no graphical bugs whatsoever but i do get code related errors some 3d games run very smoothly while other 2D games run sluggish (they are all unity) maybe this has something to do with the damaged windows driver files since my host continuously writes 1mb of crap whenever audio is playing even on my radeon

Grsec invented a lot of the still openbsd stole. But yeah, openbsd is the only place to get it now.
But some of the hardening options aren't enabled in Linux kernel (that's why Arch Linux has a separate linux-hardened package). And disabling features (for example, via USE flags in Gentoo) reduces the attack surface. Moreover, some packages (mainly Firefox) can be linked to system libraries (instead of the bundled ones) which makes sure they are up-to-date and build using secure compiler options.

>any ARM specific hardware vulns?

You must have never owned an ARM computer. While x86 has mostly standardized BIOS/UEFI and initialization, ARM is nuts. Chips requires blobs to boot up, non-mainlined patches, drivers and boot loaders all over the place. Some embedded board are still stuck with Linux 3.x and patched u-boot based on 2010 because nothing is mainlined. Good luck reverse engineering dtb if it is not mainlined.

That's firmware (and mostly for the accessory chipset), not the CPU itself nor its ISA.

>I guess it also made the people at AdaCore got out of their comfy office chairs and started promoting their products more
IIRC, Rust is responsible for inventing solutions to some problems that dogged Ada for decades, which were subsequently incorporated into Ada. Until recently, Ada was significantly slower than unsafe compiled languages like C or Pascal.

Regarding SPARK specifically, rather than Ada in general, remember it's taking on the even more ambitious goal of formal verification through design by contract.

I'm sure everyone has seen ChatGPT by now and it's programming capabilities but what concerns me far more than the "threat" of it "taking jobs" is it's potential applications for ISP level censorship. What transformer driven language models like GPT excel at is text classification.

>ISP level censorship
I don't have the screenshot around, but old/tech/fags predicted this. The gist is all closed-source data miners (eg FAGMAN) collect massive amount of data to aggregated into psychological classifications. Understanding implies control. They can simplify however they want to meet computation limits to create models where they can ask if I show X to this group of people, what is their reaction or how does their profile changes. The more information given, the more accurate the model is and the more controlled a person is. Without going into dead internet theory level of autism, they can still target the majority of some forums or psychological groups to deliver the punch they wanted.
Yes. Does it matter when all sites pool data into the same several entities which are friends among themselves?

Encryption using something like shared PGP keys could solve the issue but it would require a web of trust model to be applied on the application layer. However it would make posting on a public website like this one effectively useless unless someone else had your PGP keys. This limits the extent of who can see your posts and if the site is public 

Which accomplishes the same goal that GloboHomo :tm: wants to do with internet censorship. The solution is the inevitable creation of distributed and independent nodes of infrastructure on the network level to support a fully open Network.

This is all hypothetical but given the current way things are going I don't see it as too far fetched.

The hype over Stable Diffusion and GPT-3 is a bit ridiculous when it comes to replacing artists / programmers. The real threat is both government and corporate actors using it to develop a fully autonomous and evolving firewall that censors all wrongthink.
And with GPT-3 it's easier than ever to create those types of models. In regards to the "dead internet" theory look at sites like cuckchan, Plebbit, or Twitter and about 40-60% of all posts are generated by neural networks.

The point of Rust is to be a high performance functional programming language without a garbage collector.

The point of Ada is to be a low level systems programming language focused on safety and security.

The Rust community likes to larp at the safety and security stuff but that is mostly a side effect not an actual priority in the design and development of the language.

The problem with Ada is that it's not cool. It doesn't have closures and metaprogramming and ad hoc polymorphism. Ada is for writing navigation systems for nuclear missiles, not dicking around with useless abstractions to pretend you're clever.

It may endanger unmaintained SDL2 projects, though there was an SDL1->2 compatibility layer created eventually so hopefully the same will happen for SDL2->3.
The suggestion is Wayland & Pipewire will be the defaults, but not required (this is often the case in programs with Pulse support, many of which can also use ALSA). On a side note Pipewire has the potential to be an objective improvement in every way over the previous Linux audio stacks, unifying ALSA, Pulse & JACK support under one umbrella.
>will be the defaults, but not required
This is fine until Firefox stopped supporting alsa. Audio is best when there are less layers. Quality can only get worse from the source. alsa handles everything except switching audio device during use.
Replies: >>8013
>Pipewire has the potential to be an objective improvement in every way over the previous Linux audio stacks
On my end it's objectively superior to PoetteringAudio as that would sometimes make these really annoying Tinnitus noises when closing an application while audio was still playing, PW doesn't do that and I've yet to run into an application with a PA dependency that has any trouble routing its audio through PW instead.
Replies: >>8013
Are you the fbdev faggot? If yes, SDL2 supports DirectFB so maybe try that. Dunno if it's enabled by default though... I've used both SDL versions and 2.x is a massive improvement over 1.x.

>though there was an SDL1->2 compatibility layer
The SDL1 API is quite small[1] I could write a wrapper for it in a day, the SDL2 API on the other hand is much larger[2] so a wrapper may be difficult to come by.
That being said SDL2 is extremely popular, I reckon it will still be in use a decade or two from now. Deprecating it in favor of SDL3 might take a long time.

>alsa handles everything except switching audio device during use.
That's an important feature, palindrome-anon. While I personally prefer ALSA for development reasons, I find it unusable on a modern desktop without PA. Thankfully alsa-plugins-pulseaudio exists so ALSA-only applications work great under PA.

Not necessarily.

I have been wondering about the same thing. gcc-go is perfectly usable but it's not still the same as Google's Go toolchain (but I can't remember what it's lacking (?), other than the fact that gcc-go uses older version of the language, Go: golang-1.19.5, GCC11: golang-1.16.3). 

Go is a weird/a bit disappointing language. When I was looking at it last year (after generics got added), Go initially looked really good but then there are some corner cases (etc.) that aren't taken into account.
Basically Go has 80% solutions for everything. It comes close to being good, but then it fails imo.

Mostly, yes.
But the JVM has GraalVM now (and it's production ready). Without GraalVM, Java/JVM is still really slow to start. Try Clojure+leiningen ( lein repl ) or Emacs: cider-jack-in. It loads slowly and executing the first expression takes more time than any subsequent expressions. I think modern web browsers do some kind of JIT caching but I'm not sure. I heard that they need to verify the JIT cache before they can use it (and based on this comment, I figured that browsers probably do it now or that it's in the works).  LuaJIT is very fast (even the start up).
