I like sigils in Perl. Raku, Ruby and (to lesser extend) sh/Bash also have them. A sigil is basically the "$" in $foobar, for example. In Perl, they are used in variables to differentiate the type (scalar (= normal var, like number or string), array, hash (In python, it's called "dictionary"). Sigils make string interpolation more beautiful: you can just print("hello, $name!") instead of something like print(f"Hello, {name}!") . In Perl, they also add more type info when the variable is used.

I wish more (dynamically typed) languages used sigils like they are used in Perl. What do you think? Also, is there some underappreciated programming language feature that you like?
Replies: >>10194 >>10239
The problem with perl is if you don't use it everyday you will come back to a script 6 months later and won't remember what all the different symbols mean and you basically have to re-learn the whole language.

Or worse, you somewhat remember what the symbol means but forgot all the nuances and implications and end up changing the code in ways that introduce bugs and security vulns.

Also checkout the perljam talks.

-fno-plt can be good for AMD64 but other architectures get a negative impact.

As an added bonus -fno-plt makes ((( lazy linking ))) impossible.
I wish PHP took Perl's clue when they copied sigils, and adopted "@" for arrays, hashes etc. Not just "$" for everything. Because of that, people are back to prefixing or postfixing (aMyDataArray, bMyBool; or personnel_array)

There is increasing resentment from the LGBs since the Ts have completely taken over the movement. Notice how it's not even gay pride month anymore it's just pride. Or remember the mainstream media reporting on monkeypox it was "men who have sex with men" not gay men. The LGBs are getting erased from the narrative and they know it.

Don't forget the agenda here is eugenics and population control. The LGBs were somewhat effective at fucking up families and impacting the birthrate. But nothing beats the Ts just straightup castrating children before they even hit puberty. That's why the Ts are the favorite.

So from the replies in this thread, there's a theory that the supermods orchestrated the blackout as a protest against the administration, because Reddit's supermod tools they use to do it for free (while allegedly getting corporate kickbacks on the side) need the API to function.

All in all, anyone on the normalfag side of things immediately called this blackout out due to the fact that there was a set date and time of only two days that it happened, instead of being an indefinite blackout. Other subs are still keeping the blackout going, and I hope that this will at least push people to make less-centralized platforms.

All in all, I had a feeling there was something up with the blackout, especially with how short it was, and though the post above is just a theory, I wouldn't doubt there's enough tells in that thread showing that something about this blackout wasn't organic.

From the looks of the youtube talking heads, Reddit's blackout may be "over", but the fire is not only still going, it's rising it seems like. Reddit's staff is downplaying the damage it's causing, Spez is continuing to be Spez,  and the moment I saw his picture, it looked -exactly- like the same kind of manipulative-sociopath-stare that Zuck has. 

Hell. I wonder if Spez played a role in Aaron's suicide, that would be spicy if he did.

Honestly? I don't give a shit what happens to either side, as a lot of what makes reddit as it is, is power-tripping mods, and power-tripping administration, all I want is justice for the evils committed by, on, and for Reddit itself, as well as the deliberate over-centralization of hobby communities and organic, real-human-tech-support.

If you want easy to use text editor, try Geany or Kate.


Vim and Emacs are very powerful editors and their productivity levels aren't matched by other editors. I don't know if there is a tour of Vim but here is a link to emacs tour: https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/tour/ 
I recommend you go through the tutorial of NeoVim and GNU Emacs. It takes about 30 mins and it's worth it if you switch to either editor. Open NeoVim and type :Tutor to get the tutorial, and on Gnu Emacs type ctrl+h t (or use the link on the splash screen or use GUI help menu).

More reading if you are interested:

There is also Acme and Sam if you are a Plan 9 fan but I think that (Neo)Vim and Emacs are better. Also, don't use the Gvim GUI because it's useless and it doesn't add anything (But Emacs GUI is better).
Replies: >>10402
For the record, if you're -actually- going to use Vim or Emacs, there are a few things you should ask yourself.

** "Do I like to use BSDs or minimal distros like alpine?"
** "Do I like extraneous functionality to be kept to a minimum until I find what I need?"
** "Do I want this editor to be something that can use my OS's programs?"

Then you're best of picking Vim

** "Do I like to use maximal distros that come with everything installed for me?"
** "Do i want something more-extended than nano?"
** "Do I want this editor to have the functionality of an operating system inside of it's own self-contained enviroment?"

Then your best off picking Emacs

But really, the best way to figure it out if you want to use it is to read the manuals, and try them out. BOTH of these editors are STEEP learning curves because they're from an age where shortcuts weren't standardized into the functions they have.

I personally settled on emacs solely because of how functional and smooth org-mode is.
Wow, Zuck has such creepy fangs...
I know the basics of Vim, and I went through the Emacs tutorial and even customized it a bit, but I have no motivation to learn any further, because Leafpad serves me well. It's a "if it ain't broken, don't fix it" situation, I guess. Even org-mode doesn't seem too interesting to me, because text files have been serving me well, so why should I learn something else.

If you work in tech or want to work in tech then learning how to use a real text editor with macros and stuff will benefit you in the long run because you will be able to do many more things and do them faster than with a notepad app.

If tech is more of a hobby then it might not be worth the time to learn.

That's some creepy shit. They do not look human.

Just do what you want. What is the point of convincing you to use something? Especially Emacs. If you need someone to convince you to use Emacs, then you're not gonna use it. It has to be an active decision, there's no point in using Emacs if you just use it the same way that you'd use notepad. Org is great, but if you don't have a lot of stuff to organize, then you're not gonna use it. There's only a point in using it if you want to do the things that it can do and are willing to learn enough to be able to get them done.

TBQH, I think the ideal project would be something less like an imageboard, much more like a revival of >>10451 with its two main weaknesses (vulnerability to automated spam, no protocol-integrated searchable archive functionality) fixed using modern technology.

A lot of people today, especially given the recent upheavals on Reddit, are pining for the days of small specialist webforums/BBSs, and I sympathize. But even back in the day I found them irksome for some strange reason, which I soon came to realize was the presence of dedicated human jannies and centralized servers/admins, something USENET simply functioned without over its decades as the foremost online discussion venue.

I think so too. 
For one due the fragmented nature of imageboards they are bound to become cancerous when they reach a bigger userbase. 
I also think that in many cases images are just distracting from real conversation.
And if you don't have the option to post images there's also a much lower chance of having "problematic" boards shut down due to glowies spamming pizza.

What about segregating the text and discussion boards themselves, but allow linkage?

Textboard - For discussion

>Text-boards allow text-links to images, but will never actually display the images. The user must click on the links to use them
>Alternative version, links to direct images are not allowed, but links to image-board threads ARE.
>Another alternative, you can mouse-over the links and get a thumbnail, but you have to click on the link to get the full-version.
>Broken links to images or image threads will display in text, the reason they're broken: Thread expired, erased by hotpocket, deleted by OP, etc.

But the most important thing about this, is that the discussion has to be front-and-center, the image-board must be it's own link and cannot be the center or front page: at least if you want to avoid the distraction of images and galleries.

Imageboard - for galleries

>Since it's images without text, it's a booru-style gallery view.
>Images are allowed, text is not, however, the site will auto-generate any in-site links to textboard threads that reference these galleries.
>this list will sort links by links-generated, new threads will be placed higher than the older threads.
>If there are any broken links between these threads on either board for any reason, the hyperlink will be disabled, and next to the link will display a reason: Thread expired, erased by hotpocket, deleted by OP, etc.
>Broken links will be placed in a list separate from the active ones.

I don't think separating images and text would make much difference. The separation can easily be reverted with a crude client fetching images together with text.
The problem has always been the userbase. Most modern "people" are just not worth talking to.
>>5022 (OP) 
I finally got money so I can replace my potatoes a bit (I have many devices but they are cheap things). I am still poor so I bought a Thinkpad like I wanted for many years but a t430....(also a cheap thing)... I wonder what Linux I will use on it? I hope it comes with a caddy. I had to buy the hdd separate, unless I went with an ssd. I figure ssd's last less long  than hdd's despite what they say to advertise speedy modern things. 

I'll probably try a Lubuntu Live disc image I have already burned from years ago (it's like 10 years old anyway, a t430, ergo maybe it'd be more compatible?) and then install it to the hdd/ssd if it lets me. I might also try the Lubuntu flash drive only method, as in not even install it if the other method won't pan out, but that is so slow and dies so fast. Burns out flash drives, I'd played with it before, that idea. I hope it lets me change the boot order, for years as a bum I've been stuck on win7 with my 'fav' potato over such drama. You don't know until you get it though.... of which is going to take a while...

It's funny you have to break 'the law' just to watch dvd's on Linux. Dvd's are so gay now days. Back in the winxp era I recall putting a disc in a laptop and it just werk'd but now even windows gripes at you to install faggy thigns to play it and LInux you use libdvdcss or whatever with that pylon (vlc) application for video/music playing to watch it and it technically cracks it so you 'broke the law'. Since when was hackering illegal? I thought most nations did not say that but now days what I am reading is pissing me off. I download things anyway but still. Having a backup was always okay when I looked things up in the past I coulda sworn. Not that I am pro laws of any nation as I am not that much of a scared stupid slave. 

I miss when Linux was cool. Back around 2007ish I had used a puppy live disc and it booted wih so much colorful texst on my win98 desktop I had back. It was really neat and soulful. I wonder how many live boots still do that?  I guess rainbows are gay now ergo rainbow text is gay, not that it was literally rainbow text. Seeing text fly by during a Linux boot is neat regardless if it's live or not, regardless if it's colorful too, I wonder which Linux would do that without my telling it to? I ain't going to stop drinking nor stop working to actually alter my distro much at all beyond installing mednafen, mupen64+, vlc (and it's libdvdcss stuffs? Maybe not...), transmission or some other bitorrenting client,  (transmission comes with Lubuntu doesn 't it?)) and  something to read ebook files with...for manga. I already converted my actual books, though I regret it a bit, to text files so any device can read it, like the pocketgo I own, it has an application called bard that can even do audio synthesis. Too bad they stopped making the absolute tiny potatoes. It's stock has the cool bootup text flying by like some pi would have (I own a couple of those too).  I mainly have 5v devices actually, sort of a prepper but are addicted to 'real computers'. My current Internet browsing very old dell laptop and also lenovo desktop are going to be replaced by the t430 hopefully even though the desktop is a bit more powerufl than the t430 will be. The desktop has win10 on it, I never conenct it to the Internet. The dell is so weak, an atom processor, it can't even use the Internet properly anymore. Some sites I needed to use an android phone to buy shit from recently so now here comes the t430 to replace them both. The bloatware the net is comprised of is a high contributing factor to motivating me to get the laptop. I mostly, currently, watch tv shows on the desktop and browse/buy/etc with the laptop, I post with the androids, I play games... never becasue I drink a lot but would with the handhelds and such I bought that have opendingux/nxhope/android-os/etc on them. 

>but what was the question
What Linux do you think I'd like? I was suprised it was hard to find  out, 'just try it' seems like what modern day people say to do with x device. Just finding required specs for x thing now days is hard, not in regards to os's but in regards to how bad the Internet is practicality wise. I can't plan well. Maybe search engines being so bad people are hosting their own is why. I tested yandex in comparison to duckduckgo and duckduckgo actually tries to censor a lot of things. 

I can't even concentrate as niggers are loud and raise their children to be loud and I'm in a  nigger apt. Seemingly just flinging themselves into the wall for an hour at a time just because the sun is up. Fucking retards.  
You mean they want to lull people into false security then take the stuff down? Google stuff is worse, like what happened with kissanime, not that I liked that place. The censoring of comments was so unfun. Why would I watch 'tv episodes' of things rather than torrent if I can't say things to people on the Internet? Glad they proved they were retarded with that google drive shit. Of course they like censoring comments if they were pro-google.

That was referring to a scamposter who was using 2 IA accounts to serve their sketchy files (the one that goes back to 2014 may have been an actual person tho), IA itself started in the 90s. From what I understand archive.org doesn't care what you upload as long as it isn't illegal (only insofar as it causes them legal problems) or a scam (though like any big service that's not easy to tackle fully).

For your Thinkpad you probably want to use a more recent disk image, hardware support mostly improves with successive Linux versions and you benefit from software improvements plus fixes made over the last decade.
>Back in the winxp era I recall putting a disc in a laptop and it just werk'd
DVDs have always had things like region locking, with only 5 region changes allowed for a DVD drive IIRC, libdvdcss bypasses that I think. DRM circumvention is illegal but enforcement is sporadic and non-existent for old formats.
>to text files so any device can read it, like the pocketgo I own
Isn't there a PDF viewer for OpenDingux?
>Too bad they stopped making the absolute tiny potatoes.
Not so, China started cloning the Dingoo & PocketGo years ago, device series like Anbernic 350 and 280 run the same hardware (which is old news at this point with more powerful SOCs being common) and software in various form factors. There's numerous Chinese companies repurposing old mobile hardware for SBC gaming handhelds.
>What Linux do you think I'd like?
If you're not well versed in Linux the Ubuntu family probably isn't a bad place to start, your T430 shouldn't break a sweat, especially with flavors like Lubuntu or Xubuntu.
>samposter using 2 IA accounts to serve thr skety files

There is a pdf viewer I read about but with nxhope it's not opendingux. The pocketgo I figured would be better off with text files. Even if I wanted to read a book with not but a mp4 media player, not that I currently own any, I could use that or damn small linux, whatever. Despite the damage it caused I converted ebook files to text using calibre 'just in case' a device might not be able to read my files in an emergency.  Nxhope is a bastardization of opendingux I guess for cheaper types of chipsets, and yes they have clones all over. I liked the pocketgo's size and look and such even if the same chipsets are being put into other devices. It's so bad without the look I'd just do opendingux and android, opendingux is retrograde tier enough as it is... then again an actual gp2x would be outgunned by a pocketgo.... how spoiled am I is the question. I suppose it does not matter with how often I play games, of which, not often. It's amazing how many applications were on the actual gp2x, even sissi, an irc client was there. They had a tethered modem they added to those things or something way back when but I only read about it. I ended up with a phat psp I hacked instead of having one and now that they spew out so many gmenu2x having devices I just can't help but randomly buy one or three because I wish they never died and android never happened. But yeah, they do have clones and there was lots of software for the gp2x but less the modern versions of them. Dingoo was less impressive to read about even if technically that  is what the modenr clones are. I have an rg280v myself. I should miss my phat hacked psp I coped with having instead of a gp2x, or make a pi computer myelf with gmenu2x launcher, but instead.....

I don't know what was installed on my older winxp that let it play them without installing stuff. Maybe they were counterfeit. Or maybe I've not used dvd's/vhs's in so long I forgot what not copyright infringing using torrenting sites was like....

The verson of Lubuntu I have isn't all that old, less than five years old. I figured I'd just type out sudo apt-get update and not worry, assuming the wifi actually works, because if not I'm going to install lakka and also lubuntu rather than do some funky local repository shit nor insatll from the tar or whatever.  No I am not "versed" and I'm not gong to be either. Sudo apt-get update then install software after that I mean to say. I just hope I don't have to manually install wifi modules or some shit.

This is for OpenDingux, a mobile version of Linux (different from Android) originally designed for the Dingoo handheld, which was ported to devices like the GP2X and later Chinese clone devices such as early designs from Anbernic. Most apps available are Dingux originals (or ports of popular emulators and FOSS games), the SOCs that run Dingux are not very powerful so you won't find modern desktop Linux software.

Replies: >>10639
They're an entire read-only filesystem leaning on goofy daemons to (optionally, in most AppImages not even) halfass various parts of what is normally handled by the OS or package manager. Use of system deps as first priority before fallback to the AppImage's outdated vuln-ridden deps is highly unusual, basically all AppImages will prefer their copy of every dep, only using system deps that were excluded from the AppImage. And reconfiguring AppImages yourself is a PITA compared to operating any package manager.
Actually, a long time ago you didn't have export, only save, and save could save in any format, but then they decided it's too confusing that save can actually save, so they split the functionality into two unrelated commands.
I guess it was around time they converted to that single window UI shit.

That's how static binaries and all these app bundles that try to emulate static binaries work. What do you think the alternative is. Either your application is compiled for your specific system and system libraries. Or it brings its own dependencies with it. There is no magic 3rd option.

Well what save does now is save in their made up gimp specific format.

>There is no magic 3rd option
There is what every modern OS except Linux does: Support multiple simultaneous versions of the same dep, providing a mechanism to explicitly specify any version requirements, allowing a fully stable ABI across all of kernelspace & userland.

A good example of how this can be done is Nix, though it is sadly not very popular.

Windows does allow override DLLs to be stored with an application (which makes useful things such as "portable apps" possible in a more straightforward way then chroot autism on Linux), but it also has a versioned central object store (SxS) capable of cleanly doing so system-wide where Windows Update can see it.
>these appimage/docker/whatever way of having practically immutable FS doesn't help with that
No, but aside from its immutability, Nix also has explicit centralized dep versioning.

>3rd option is to do both at the same time
Not quite. The package manager will fetch the newest versions of every dep that any packages require, all stored together and automatically purged when unneeded.

And aside from all that, it has the tremendous advantage over Snap/Flatpak/AppImage/etc. of installed applications actually using the OS normally.

How do you think Nix works? It's literally just a chroot mount namespace whatever for each isolated package and it's deps. Just like Snap/Flatpak/AppImage/etc. It's all the same shit because there's only one way of actually doing this.
Replies: >>10650
>It's literally just a chroot
>Just like Snap/Flatpak/AppImage/etc. 
I guess the difference is that if there is a vulnerability in a dependency then Nix/Guix can update/recompile anything inside the chroot individually instead of waiting for upstream to put together a whole new Snap/Flatpak/AppImage and downloading it.
But isn't that only used by some microsoft dlls and nothing else? Every other library and package has its own installer and (maybe) updater. And many packages has other data that needs to be stored besides dlls, and at that point sxs is pretty much useless.
>chroot autism
To be honest, libraries are partly to blame here as they're full of hard-coded paths. Steam used to ship with a steam runtime, where they patched every library to be portable, but these days they're also moving into these containerization shit with their soldier runtime.

>the clipboard magically lost the text I had typed out
By default the Linux clipboard behaves differently from Windows, instead of copying the contents of your selection it makes a reference to the program that has the selection, when you go to paste it then fetches the contents. If the program is closed then your clipboard is cleared as the reference is no longer valid, you can change how this works by using a clipboard manager program.
>Can't code search without logging in
Github does that too now. Guess I'll just clone the whole repo and waste your bandwidth then.

>If the program is closed then your clipboard is cleared as the reference is no longer valid
Shit that's it. I always thought it was firefox clearing the clipboard on exit because I never noticed it happen with any other application.
But why should I use krita after I figured it out with gimp?

My real gripe is how manuals never load now days unless it's accessing the Interwebz. I had to go searching to find something super basic and that's gay. Win9x didn't do me like that honestly. "You gotta download the manual bro" vs "error etc" was gay. 

In the past I tried kirta and hated it as much as gimp honestly and recently i did not even give it a second try but was hating on it to feel better also. 

I always used mspaint and it's tier and not photoshops. By adult you mean professional when I'm trying to fucken post text in an image. There are more options than you need and I get asspained if I can't understand every single feature without looking it up, of which, shit like gimp, as if I'm tryin' play Myst here or some shit when i'm drinkin' five liters of beer a day after work and sleepin' four hours while you insinuate I'm a child. I can't draw you know. 

Now that I've flamed it I'll likely not forget at least. Another thing that urks is my gimp doesn't look like the guides. Stuff like that makes me twitch all over due to ocd driven autismos. If I have to lower myself into cheating by looking shit up online it ought to at least look the same but gimp has differing versions I guess. It was more than enough to go on but that pinta crashing and shit sent me over the edge when it didn't even have an obvious way to change permissions. I could cross reference stuff in the command line but I was not about to ponder so hard with my lifestyle because I've done such technical stuff following guides and I know I could have given permissions with the terminal I just refused to be bothered to do it. 

But whatever. I'm just being honest. Honestly most adults would not even attempt to cope with Linux, no meme language intended. I'm also mad I put off using this Linux I kinda like to the point it's end of life and I didn't even realize it, that's possibly to do with my issues I'm noticing. Things here and there don't work that well but it's working in some ways far better than some android. Android would have had codec errors for some videos I'm watching but this one could not only fix that but I didn't need to so that's one thing that has me still using it is that in some ways it's kicking the Android OS experience's ass compatibility wise. 

The Tor guide isn't hard also, I just was caught off guard it'd not work out of the metaphorical box and in short I had a bad day with it is all. I'd not keep coming back to Lubuntu if I really hated it. I hated that pocketgo when i accidentally deleted shit off of it due to it's shitty keys being mapped not only cryptically but also wrong. The rg280v is fine with that sort of thing. I had to copy and paste back in all my emulators one time with a spare sd I made for it with the firmware and all.

I know what you mean anon. The good news is local documentation is very much a thing on Linux. For command-line programs you can type man <program> in a terminal to get an overview of how to use it and the arguments it accepts, for example man ls will tell you about the list command. For GUI programs the documentation will often come with the installation or might be available as a separate package, using your GIMP example you can install gimp-help-en to get the English docs.

Well, GIMP & Krita are billed upfront as Photoshop & Painter clones, respectively. Pinta originated as a Paint.NET fork, and is the sort of program you're probably looking for, though I'd advise vector graphics software like Inkscape is usually better suited to text-heavy maymays.
>you insinuate I'm a child

The problem with X is that even if they run under different accounts, it doesn't solve anything. One X client can inject events into other X clients, so basically if you have a web browser and a terminal emulator open, even if you run your browser as a different user, it can still type shit into your terminal emulator. And if you don't have a terminal emulator open, it can type your WM/DE's shortcut to open one. Basically whatever x0vncserver can do, your browser can also do.

I never actually put the system on a chip inside it (pi zero in that image, loading a site with Midori was soooo painful) but was instead going to make a custom ultra mobile PC for myself. I was just having fun that day seeing how neat it'd look if I DID put it inside it. It'd not be hard. I also used Lakka for fun with the pi I was using. 

Regardless, I like Puppy; that was the point of posting it as a reaction image.

No, xsecurity only manages connections to the X server, once an X client connected, it can do whatever it want. It only helps you if you run a separate X server for your web browser under a different account.
You can run the browser inside Xephyr/Xvnc/etc, to avoid needing to VT switch, but in that case you're still running your browser in a window which has its own x server and WM and everything. (Xpra integrates a bit better, but it has horrible lag and CPU usage) Works, but really cumbersome to use. Also I don't think accelerated OpenGL works in any of these servers, and since browsers are less and less optimized for software rendering, have fun with that.

Not that guy, but I just "ssh -X" to a local OpenBSD computer to run web browser on there, and I don't have any OpenGL drivers on either computer. It's actually not too slow, but you probably don't want to watch videos or play games in your browser like this.

I could not get it to connect to the Internet and didn't actually try to use it much but I have this t430 now so.....Next time I kill it I'm installing slackopuppy to see what happens, then I'll just try to make the UI look like I recall if that doesn't work with some ubuntu one instead after that. I figure slacko puppy has no systemd also, I see people flaming systemd but slackware wasn't systemd last I checked ergo puppylinux that's slacko should not be? Debian even  has systemd now days though so never mind if by now literally everything is systemd but void. Then again there's a void puppy.... not that I can use such things.

How exactly is it going to do that? The shell is logged into OpenBSD, and on logout browser it terminated. The only xterm running on Xserver is logged into OpenBSD. There's no other windows except the browser. The window manager is twm and there's nothing bound to mouse, just a few custom keybindings.
Also the browser is subject to all OpenBSD mitigations and pledge/unveil. There is also no additional openings like OpenGL (no driver) or meltdown/spectre (both computers are not x86 or speculative CPU).
Replies: >>10755
Exactly the same way x0vnc can turn your existing X server into a vnc server. Any X client can send input events to the X server, and the X server will treat it as if you would have pressed those buttons/keys. So as long as you can open a terminal emulator from X, any client can do.
OpenBSD mitigations are completely irrelevant here, as it can't filter individual X11 commands being sent over the network.

So it would have to guess my magical key sequence for opening a terminal. And maybe I could bind a whole bunch of more common key sequences to f.quit (ends the window manager, also killing the Xserver process).

You are incorrect.
Using a separate user account generate an untrusted X11 authorization file.
xauth -f ${TempFile} generate ${DISPLAY} . untrusted
doas -u ${AlternateUser} sh -c "$(umask 077 && cat > ${AlternateXauth})" < "${TempFile}"
rm -f ${TempFile}
When running X11 programs under your alternate user use the new X11 authorization file.

I don't think so because a client needs the MIT magic cookie to connect and a user's .Xauthority file is protected by standard file permissions. Unless you're talking about subverting X by going directly to /dev/input or something. And obviously root can read any file it wants.

>XSECURITY extension
I think that just splits clients into local and remote groups. So people connecting over SSH can't fuck with windows opened locally and vice versa. But it doesn't stop two different SSH clients fucking with each other.

This is the answer if you want real per window isolation on X but there is a large resource overhead.

>think the OpenBSD mitigations are at least useful to prevent the web browser from being hijacked in the first place.

Not quite. It splits clients into "trusted" and "untrusted". As far as I understand untrusted clients can interfere with each other. They need not be remote over SSH they can also be local with locally generated untrusted X11 authorization files.

That is how some people use it. If you're not a programmer you're more likely to encounter this usage.
>TrueCrypt can run in so-called portable mode, which means that it does not have to be installed on the operating system under which it is run
Well, the portable stuff you speak of is usually a boolean thing, so your app is either portable (which means you can just put in on a thumb drive and run on any computer without any installer shitting in the registry and the likes), or not.
With program codes you can talk about portability and say this program is highly portable and the other is only somewhat, but this is going to be subjective as shit. Portable where? Between unix systems? That can still mean shitloads of work if you want to get it running on wangblows. Does it use some "portable" library, like SDL to handle platform specific stuff? Then your program is maximum as portable as SDL is, but you can go lower (by still using other system-specific API, depending on undefined/undocumented behavior, etc). And while SDL is available on many systems, it still won't work everywhere.

The beast is dead, so is his Harlot, and anyone claiming otherwise is a shitstirrer looking to cause trouble for profit or power.
2. rainbows just look like they have seven colors when it's more closer to a spectrum of thousands. you just see seven since it's easier to see those.
3. Indigo and pink are the most expensive colors to print on paper. actually, you'd cause quite a shitstorm if you used these colors for a binary-pride flag
4. The number of the beast is actually 616. 666 is either a mistranslation, or a censorship (not sure which).
5. Only the devil would use God as a bludgeon. Preaching to a congregation who does not want to listen is fruitless, and preaching to the choir, equally so.

That's pretty fucked up, basically makes Odysee unusable for most people that have any standards at all. I unlocked their scamcoin with a Chinese phone number, but thought of it as an optional feature. Only realized now that you actually need to pay scamcoin to upload anything, and you can't get it without doxing yourself unless you find an online throwaway number that hasn't been used yet (took me a while, and that was about two years ago). I remember Odysee's monetization policy pissing me off as well, but I don't care about that, though I did tell them to go fuck themselves regardless.

And yeah, taking all of that into consideration, it's even worse than the shill lion (though also more useful). It does work for me, but I probably should upload my stuff to other websites as well. Maybe Vidlii. Don't know much about that one, but it's pretty neat, reminds me of YouTube when it was still cool (though YouTube itself already sucked and people already had problems with it in the late 2000s, so, it was never exactly good). 

They should all be treated as temporary, though. Every video-hosting website eventually ends up being censored and infested with normalfaggotry, or taken down, or just going down because it's too expensive to host. I see them as just temporary hosting. Could host stuff myself, but fuck it, if free shit is available, I'll take it, and leave the moment that they piss me off too much.

>You can achieve what you want with lbry
I think the main problem with peoples' reaction to open protocols such as LBRY or PeerTube is conflating sites and software with the protocol itself, similarly to the way Element is commonly conflated with Matrix. I suspect it stems from eMail being the only protocol in common use that still has a relatively diverse ecosystem of clients, servers, and software for both. Everything else is either one giant airtight bubble like Discord, or a disgusting mess still almost inescapably entangled with one or two giant corporations like the web.

People are disoriented by the freedom of choosing from any arrangement of servers, clients, platforms, software, and the ability to change or build more of those using standard APIs documented and maintained without hostility to developers like them.

Psh, yeah, even in its most basic form that's supposed to be completely impossible without some sort of hack according to YouTube. But using a web interface for anything is a 2nd-class experience at best, even something as simple as browsing a remote Db or streaming some media. I like the OS I installed, I like the DE I use it with, I like the way I configured them, and I want the behavior of everything else I use to conform to that system-wide configuration. That's not something webshit can do.
>requires some shell scripting anyway
The fact I have to resort to manually punching in regex just to make simple Boolean selections is a consequence of modern GUI software being either a barebones toy scornfully tossed out for icky users to teethe on, or a complete afterthought made with the unconscious assumption a text interface will be used to fill in all the gaps in its featureset.
<scared of the commandline
I use it all the time because there is little choice. I do not feel fear, merely contempt.
<that means everyone else is incompetent
Worse than that. I think other anon was halfway to an even worse truth, programmers aren't simply incompetent or contrarian, they are brainwashed by ignorance. When WIMP GUIs swept over various software, they outcompeted every other design in productivity, but there was one redoubt that was never seriously contested: Programming itself.

As a result, programmers took their unique antiquarianism as a mark of superiority, creating a false psychological wall between "use" and "development". On the one side, automation of the simplest kinds, let alone scripting, vanished from most UIs. On the other side, attempts at prying apart raw language to produce something more structured and consistent evaporated, noticeably degrading CLIs their and their storage/transmission formats from the state of the art in the 1970s to completely ambiguous raw text diarrhea now, and leaving IDEs to stagnate as little better than a glorified word processor.

In this environment, "power user" features have slipped into the realm of "agile" CLI hackjobs, while "consume only" UIs reminiscent of dumb terminal TUI apps have taken over for most users. All the progress of the PC revolution in the '80s & '90s is being reversed, and we tumble backward into the mainframe era, easy pickings for the forces of centralization.

The only solution is for that unfinished revolution to be completed, for programming to be ripped to shreds and dragged into modernity, for true unity between making and doing.

Naturally, this will never actually be a common thing in text-based interfaces, because graphics bad. Let's pretend that they are inherently bloated, forgetting that Windows 95 had a graphical desktop (with GUIs that were better than the abominations you see now), with a system requirement of 4 MB of RAM. Fuck making extensible GUIs, let's just pretend that GUI programs can't be extensible and can't be keyboard-based, even though Emacs exists.

I don't know where to post this, so here goes.

A division-free DDA algorithm (WIP)
(This is the TL;DR version, so if Anons want me to go into more detail, then just let me know.)
Before developing this algorithm, I was working on designing a simple GPU for an FPGA board of mine. However, one of the challenges was implementing DDA. Since division (and to a lesser extent multiplication) are both expensive in hardware, I thought of coming up with another solution.
Reviewing the principles behind the Bresenham Line Algorithm, you can easily take a line (or any other linear values needing interpolation hint hint) and plot values using only addition and subtraction.
The BLA works by approximating the distance from pixels to a line and choosing the closest pixel to a line. By decomposing the line equation, it is possible to obtain a distance value from the line for each pixel that can be stepped and calculated by adding or subtracting dx or dy. Let me explain in detail:
Line equation:
y = (dy/dx)*x
y = (dy*x)/dx
dx*y = dy*x
0 = dy*x - dx*y

f(x,y) = dy*x - dx*y
f(x+1,y) - f(x,y) = dy
f(x,y+1) - f(x,y) = -dx

So, you can calculate a distance from a point to a line by simply adding or subtracting the deltas for the x and y points.
While this may seem obvious, the approximate points to draw the line are the values that produce a distance closest to 0. This means that by using a simple absolute value comparison, it can be possible to approximate points on a line without using any division at all. (see the diagram for more information)
Here's some code demonstrating how the interpolation algorithm implementation works:
int dx = x1 - x0, dy = y1 - y0;
int dist = 0;
for(int y = y0, x = x0; x <= x1; x++)
  while(abs(dist - dx) < abs(dist))
  { y++; dist -= dx; }
  dist += dy;
  plot(x, y);

And here's some code I wrote for Processing (>inb4 babby language) that demonstrates the interpolation being used in a line drawing algorithm:
// Line drawing algorithm
void sw_line(int x0, int y0, int x1, int y1)
  int dx = abs(x1-x0), dy = abs(y1-y0);
  int sx = x1 > x0 ? 1 : -1;
  int sy = y1 > y0 ? 1 : -1;
  int dm = dx > dy ? dx : dy;
  int distX = 0, distY = 0;
  for(int x = x0, y = y0;;)
    { y += sy; distY -= dm; }
    distY += dy;
    { x += sx; distX -= dm; }
    distX += dx;
    if(x == x1 && y == y1) { break; }

// Testbench code
void setup()

void draw()
Sadly, as you may see, the algorithm is not entirely perfect. If you look at some parts of the line closely, you'll see some red pixels showing errors between Processing's line drawing implementation and mine. I'm not entirely sure what causes this. Nonetheless, I still think it's accurate enough for a simple hobby GPU, so I hope this writeup has been useful to Anons out there.

bro you literally have two points already you just make a vector with the two points and draw along that vector with the points that correspond to the coordinates in the texture map
ie.int vec[2] = { A.x - B.x, A.y - B.y };
for ( float r=0; r<1;r+=0.01 )
	int point[2] = { A.x + r * vec[0], A.y + r * vec[1] };
	// draw pixel at point[2] with texture map point { vec[0], vec[1] }
using an increment of 0.01 as example, primitives in the gpu will figure out the increment of r based on the nearest pixel based on how far the two coordinates are, something like hyp( A,B ) but probably smarter since you only need the nearest absolute adn the texture fill is just drawing those lines along the same vector

More people are noticing how gimped google's services have been lately, youtube's search even is throwing out so much garbage and clearly biased results, and the recent dumbing down of OAI's services is making people who would otherwise have their heads in the sand actually pay attention for once.
Been also just thinking about how fewer social websites i use within the past few years. Since stripping myself of mainstream media i only really use chans and like 3 forums..
I guess sooner or later we will have to go back to the pre-google era, with website directories (or whatever the fuck they were called, where people manually created lists of websites around specific topics). No matter what I search for, a majority of the results now consists of AI generated garbage.

But the way censorship is headed, and the laws they're passing starting this very year (e.g. DSA in the EU), I'm not sure how long even this will be feasible. I'm basically expecting to get banned entirely from the web in the coming years. If nothing else, it'll be because I refuse to use a biometric/digital ID.

It's not actually about censorship though. It's 100% about forcing the Globohomo-controlled honeypot/hellholes as the only acceptable form of online communications -- where you are completely under their Filthy Commie iron thumb.

Once ((( they ))) can achieve this for 99% of the population, they will not only give zero fucks about your degeneracy, they themselves will amp it up to over 9'000.

It's not about censorship, it's about control over the goyim.

Until you will be banned from ISPs for being conservative/right-wing, or being unvaxxed, or not having the mark of the beast, etc. Or until ISPs will ban stuff like TOR, i2p, BitTorrent/p2p, and all non corporate/approved websites.

That's what I do but without the "3 forums" part. I only use imageboards for communication/interaction, and for information/asking questions I use both imageboards and search engines. And, I don't know if by "mainstream media" you mean "mainstream social media" or really "mainstream media", but I also do the former... I basically only CONSOOM (I hate this word) Japanese videogames/VNs/Anime/Manga/LNs etc, preferably older than a decade.
TL;DR: Shitty corporate websites becoming worse does not make the internet "catastrophically fucked"... rather, that would be when people and things start being mass-banned at the ISP level.

That is censorship, silly.

Impossible. Billions of normalfags still VPN their way out from shitholes like Saudi Arabia, China, and Australia with nothing more than a locked smartphone, in spite of the fact it isn't just monopolistic capitalists censoring and surveiling their vendor-locked-in customers with "voluntary" ToSs, but the full force of the actual law that can and does break kneecaps with impunity for far less.

The only killshot scenario would be a full backslide to before the PC, zero local execution/storage hardware, absolutely everything done server-side. Something like a more extreme version of OnLive/Stadia/etc.
>You shouldn't be watching videos
In principle I agree that text is a better suited medium for most people than video; however the reason people opt for things like YouTube to not only watch videos, but upload videos of their own is because search engines are so sub-optimal at finding content that has any relevance to your search queries that if per chance there were an essay out there that spoke about the things you are interested in, it'd be buried underneath countless reddit posts and wikihowesque articles, never to be found. Either search engines get better or people will keep misusing video to express their thoughts.
Replies: >>11205
>search engines are sub-optimal
They shouldn't be using jewgle. Most people also don't know how to search and type questions to search bars.
Video can not be better for this reason because you can't search within a video, but you can find a page, then search within the page. If the information is introductory (i.e. they don't know the search keyword), then there are other sources of text that do the same but load faster, easier to seek and provide more information.
>They shouldn't be using jewgle. 
Name a single modern search engine that's as good as Google was in its prime. 
>Most people also don't know how to search and type questions to search bars.
It doesn't matter because modern search engines gimped the good ways to search and just flat out ignore good searches.
>They shouldn't be using jewgle
Most search engines don't have their own independent index, so the end result of using alternative search engines is just proxied Goygle results. Undoubtedly this improves privacy, but it does little to weed out the noise. For those search engines that do have their own index, they are often too small in size to be of note.
>Video can not be better for this reason
No. They are better because it's easier to find videos that are pertinent to the subject-matter of interest. The medium itself might be less convenient than text, but circumstances are such that it's usually more helpful; it also helps that I am less likely to waste megabits worth of bandwidth on jabbascript bloat - lest I be met with a broken webpage assuming it loads at all.
Trust me: if the situation with search engines weren't so bleak, I'd be watching videos less often.

To all the people who replied to me in the past thanks for your patience and im very sorry for my autism btw after setting up my mini pc all by myself i feel that my ADHD 720p is getting more manageable but i have online classes now oh well ill need that important computer servicing CSS lesson anyway as my mind cant digest it without spoonfeeding)
(wow TESDA is so wholesome they even metioned NEET on the first day in the introduction slideshow soon i may be able to get this "windows domain" done all by myself by the time you are seeing this we are Face to Face now and the initial 3 week online classes just got finished. Wish me luck for the final 21 day (1 week left) in-person assesment and help with job training)
i didnt even know NEETbux with picture holding money verification was a thing here in PH i thought it was japan only also censored the face to stop selfish little fucks in STEM furry community from hunting down my NPC family as i dont want to cause trouble here on any side see you guys soon i might level up my license get a formal IT job one day

note if you get "Aborted" on virtualbox after trying to boot with usb3.0 drive passthrough just wipe your system and use vbox 7.0 manual dpkg install instead as this worked for me but im not sure if other flavors are affected and xfce/lxqt is very reliable so far no errors in 30 days but i had to disable updooter notifier
(on xubuntu 22.04 specifically in my topton PC but does not happen on lubuntu pinktop at all even with ethernet usb hub) (nothing was lost since its freshly installed but i had to redo my configuration in an hour not too hard for me and why does lightdm crash on startup [system error detected] after auto login)
also to get anydesk audio working on linux all you have to do is make a simple script that terminates all its RDP and backend processes after 15 seconds then restarts the whole thing after 5 seconds and now KHinsider streams for me and its pretty good quality despite my realtek speakers

had to describe the file names and use a jak to censor the zoom meeting hopefully the blogpost does not cause too much disruption damn this is taking about 6 weeks in total for my batch and i shitposted the entire pride month without rest now here i am i think i should an indie game about racing light RC boats in a flooded city obstacles modelled after ours just for kicks
(first and second picture) wow this place looks like [rainworld] without troon slugcats (or floodworld on rural areas) as super typhoon EgayPH literally cooled down our extreme heat waved city and i can sleep soundly at night but i feel legit bad for the chinamen in central area right after the storm ravaged taiwan and thier forced evacutaion routine
we went on an adventure last sunday to okada and ayala malls wow this place is secure as hell with car snapshot cameras on the entrance next to the airport but mall of asia cinemas are crowded and [oppenheimer] was way too deep for us insectoids and why the fuck is there two exposed sex scene like WTF (little did i know we'd get sick the next day but i still attended without any problems)
(on the third and fourth images) decided to do a bit of monkey business fortunately my classmates had cracks and custom [Widnows 10 ghost spectre] ISO stored in their flash drives before hand and shared it with me also what does this check rain live distro thingy do? (its under 250MB total) dont believe me ? ill share it for you later on its public files anyway
on the right here you can see me messing with neofetch and configuring the router right after planned windows server reformatting by our teacher while capturing the system logs of the cracked OS as it boots up the ASCII art (need more research on kim jong cracks) on the other hand this remonds me of DC boot yet another custom winPE from some russian drivers forum (and why is there a wolf on the installer pack)
inb4 dont you (averi sharty posters) even think of guessing the street where powerlines fell down on my jeepney drop off point and the LRT station near my training school (right next to the guy servicing the ticketing machine also theres PRIDE on the counter i hate this place i'd rather use E-Trike than crowded south korean trains)
TLDR; ill no longer be a NEET see you guys on the other side (im not sure if announcing shit that nobody cares about will motivate seagull to ban me https://archive.is/h4DOm like this but out of xhe's cloaca hurting) (four more months left and ive just wasted another year FUCK)

How do I stop being incel?
Be a volcel. You can't stop being an incel (unless you become a volcel) because it is out of your control. An incel try his hardest and failed, the choice is not on him. Given he tries his hardest, going to gym, making money, perfecting his "game", anything less and you are just a volcel in denial. In this case, you have done ll you can and that's the physical limit. Faulting you for something you don't have control is irrational and you are a cuck (you can't) to be at that position because you are a simp.
When you realize it is not possible and out of your control, you better spend your energy elsewhere. The same as not winning the lottery. Stop buying lottery tickets when you don't have the luck.

Please provide brief answers to the following questions. Feel free to be detailed if you like.

Which do you use regularly?
Which do you prefer?
Have you had experience with more than one?
What do you primarily use it for?
Do you currently make money using this?
What is your education/experience?
Are you elitist/firmly believe there is only one true way to go?
Do you like anime/japanese culture?

I'll start. I'm a third year CE major, age 20. Not huge fan of programming but have had much experience with java, C, assembly, lisp, and prolog. Looking to get more serious with programming. Trying to become proficient in C, python, assembly, and possibly php. I regularly used notepad++ but recently discovered sublime and find the ui easier/cleaner. I don't have a job yet. I think of programming as hobby as an individual but with a good team, I could see how it can be a career. I really don't understand the anime fascination here. #judegme

This isn't soyddit, take your NPC brain that doesn't understand that something newer isn't necessarily better than something older back there.

There isn't a high abstraction language that is better than LISP to this day, and knowing at least one assembly is a requirement for being a good programmer. Additionally, it's not like today's LISPs are the same language LISP was in the 1950s.

I think his point was that they're irrelevant.

Lisp and prolog were just AI meme languages in the 1980s. The only lisp you can write professionally today is clojure and even then it's a tiny number of companies. You would struggle to make a career out of it.

>People [...] seem to have forgotten of a time before globalism took root as the de facto economic standard
Quick reminder reliance on free trade and mass migration worldwide was worse than today up through the "Gilded Age" of the 1880s. In particular, the USA's trade deficit and immigration.

It was only through a concerted decades-long campaign of protectionism, nationalization, and labor organization, that the "Golden Age of Capitalism" from WWII until the neoliberal recession of the 1970s came to be.

We won before against worse, and I see no reason we can't do it again.

Don't get me wrong Anon, I appreciate the postive mental outlook and encouragement. But the simple fact is that Satan and his little golem tribe the ((( Globohomo ))) have the world in a stranglehold. No natural efforts can forestall our destruction by these evildoers. God alone can save us. Only He can work the miracles necessary to stop this entrenched Big-Tech/Big-Government global conspiracy rolling forward now.

The collapse of the current world order is a inevitability. The system of GloboHomo :tm: we are living under is an anomaly. High level systems can't operate in low level conditions. Do you think the hordes of third worlders they are importing into Western countries are going to be competent enough to maintain critical infrastructure? Do you think the current or next generation of people are going to be able to when all they have been taught in education is drag queen story hour and Common Core math? The answer is no.

>The system of GloboHomo :tm: we are living under is an anomaly
I don't think so. Most of history is covered by tyrannical empires, which constantly swapped subject populations around the map to diffuse autonomy, stifled progress and merit in lieu of theocracy to maintain control, engaged in petty wars and genocides within and between them. These empires lasted centuries or millennia, many of them globe-spanning in an interlocking network of totalitarian domination, where the downfall of one lead directly to the rise of another.

Prosperity, freedom, and peace for the masses of men such as we've known in developed nations is the historical anomaly. It isn't an anomaly that simply happened, but one that was the product of intentional struggle, and which is falling apart IMHO more through negligence than some novel subversion, given such subversion has always existed.

You forgot you live in the timeline where Chris Chan raped his mom and got away with it.
So, no.
Maybe you guys are just conveniently looking for like-minded articles and stuff that agree with both of your depressed feelings.

We've been pulled from a pre-determined timeline into one that has no certainty and no determined outcome, and that has made a LOT of people afraid and edgy because things can actually change for the better for once. 

Globohomo pulled the shit it did because the chink-flu caught EVERYONE off guard. It just so happened that the people that thought they could be daddy-dearest to the entire world knew it a lot earlier, and refused to act because they unironically-thought the masses were too stupid to deserve to know it. 

Big Tech and Big Jew Money has been stumbling on themselves with fuckup after fuckup. They're coasting on their already-earned gains, hoping to desperately-keep the power they once held. They're continuing to hold onto a narrative that is increasingly-becoming stale, destructive, and annoying to the populace.

Their audience is "The Redditor". The thing is, the archetypical "redditor" is either a no-life subreddit mod, or they're the Silicon-Valley techbro who spews self-hating feminist drivel in the front, while being a complete raving lunatic hypocrite in the back.

That exercise, and others like it going back decades, was run 180° contrary to what played out IRL with wuflu and The Science™, for the absolute gayest imagineable TDS reasons. From memory bc I'm too lazy to look it up rn:
<1. Essentially every mainstream national and international body had for decades strongly condemned quarantines, lockdowns, closures, or embargoes of any kind, emphasizing the need for continued global economic activity to keep Line Going Up™ under business as usual in the face of even the most extreme plague. This was of course also true for guidelines in the Event 201 exercise, which assumed a contagion much more infectious, deadly, and adaptive in every metric than even the most hysterical characterizations of wuflu.

<2. During the initial (by which I mean VERY initial, I think all this transpired in the span of a month or two) response to wuflu, this remained the official message from the The Blob™.

<3. Trump, because of his protectionist loyalties, spoke contrary to that in favor most especially of international border closures and embargoes, but also incidentally in favor of some domestic quarantines, lockdowns, contact tracing, and vaccination.

<4. The Blob™ doubled down, describing everything Trump advocated as unScien™tific 'n fashist 'n raycis n' shiet. Trump basked in their hate & LOL'd @ them as he usually does.

<5. Unexpectedly, large sections of Trump's own base objected against Trump's domestic proposals. Even more unexpectedly, Trump actually listened to these complaints, and softened some of his positions to become anti-lockdown.

<6. As with every other decades-long mainstream position of The Blob™ that Trump adopted for so little as a femtosecond, The Blob™ instantly responded in a fit of childish contrarianism and revisionism, totally inverting its position, because Orange Man Bad! Lockdowns good, totally shutting down the economy good, and this has always been The Science™.

<7. Not only did The Blob™'s NPCs instantly listen & believe their firmware update. Trump's base went along with this propaganda as well, because your partisan side changing its opinion means you're CRINGE! & the more u pwn teh lieberals teh better u r, BASED!

<8. Infinite cycles of doubling down again and again

<9. [(You) are here] All of this transpired extremely fast, all the details are embarrassing to everyone involved, everybody has the attention span of a goldfish, and the consent factories (both on the "right" & "left") are goin' BRRRR at record speed, so nobody is making any effort to remember any of it barely 3 years later.

<10. Federal rhetoric aside, US states were left to do WTF they wanted. In spite of prognostications from both sides, deaths, infections, and economic performance in the USA were by everyone's official numbers about the same as most of the EU in spite of them doing all the effing wholesome 100% chungus/globalist satanic libtard shit we were supposed to. The only countries that did significantly better were some of the more industrialized parts of East Asia that aren't poor as shit but still retain some actual social cohesion.

tl;dr: Nobody is in control, there is no plan, every demand is invented the moment it's attempted.

Indicate nothing that can't necessarily be explained merely by "GoF research was carried out, it was sloppy AF, dey dun goof'd". Such a Hanlon's Razor interpretation is IMHO reinforced by the virus itself simultaneously being bad enough to be a major nuisance for at least a decade, but nowhere near as dangerous nor controllable as even the lowest-grade bioweapon.

This is further underscored by how much of the fuckery that happened, even by the admission of centrist libs, has precisely nothing to do with the pandemic, and everything to do with the "response".
>it's pointless to have any expectations whatsoever from any president
My argument isn't that Trump did (or didn't) do anything worth caring about, but that his mere presence caused the powers that be to LOSE THEIR FUCKING MINDS and proceed to FLIP THEIR SHIT.

That we got dicked & billionaires ended up tightening the noose was in spite of that, not because of it. I'm reminded of the Arab Spring, which obviously happened by complete surprise and destabilized or toppled a lot of regimes The Free World™ had spent decades propping up, but we still got a few messy wars to beta test psyops in and a gonorrheal discharge of several million moderate headchoppers out of it in the end.

And Trump still doesn't fucking matter even if the MSM acted like they hate him. He didn't get any fucking results. He fucking even told people the vaxx was good!

Obviously that wasn't supposed to include regimes like Tunisia, Yemen, (arguably) Syria, or especially Egypt. Not to mention mostly losing Iraq to Iran, and the continuous string of Ls taken to the Russians in Syria.

The most plausible counterargument I've heard is that the causative leaks from Manning/Assange were intentional "limited hangout", and even that strikes me as far-fetched.

BTW, OpenBSD is specially good on ARMv8 because it's one of the few OSes that can take advantage of ARMv8's features. For instance, ARMv8's MMU has completely independent exec/read/write permissions and OpenBSD can mark memory execute only, the only other OS that can do this is iOS. An OpenBSD dev also created a program that measures useful ROP gadgets and ARMv8 is the only arch in which they managed to get ROP gadgets down to exactly 0 (according to the tool, of course there could be more).

Probably it's a lot of things that happened all in a short period of time. People don't usually flip-flop on hard-held beliefs unless they are extremely afraid of something, even if that something is 'nothing'. There's been this weird surge of paranoiacs in the past decade or so, not Conspirafags, but full subsets of paranoiacs. 

I really REALLY wants to blame the news orgs for fostering a culture of paranoia. In the past 20 years, news orgs and their reporting has gotten more inflammatory, more fearmongery, and more-frequent than ever-before. A source that was supposed to be information and events about important happenings in our country has been reduced to a propaganda mouthpiece for the political parties of the choosing of the guy with more money.

But the news is just one part of the picture. There's also algorithmic content- which was pushed by youtube, and content farms like Gawker Media. Algorithmic media that has the convenient infinite scrolling, and random-content that comes in the media feed, you could be outraged about one thing, and in the next find a cute cat video, or see the next thing that you "should" be afraid of. Bonus points if you get stuck in the rabbit holes of shitty stock-market-fearmongers, and doomscroll forever within content curated by 24-hour news orgs.

And then there's the whole "community" problem, where people who want faster convos don't go to smaller sites or communities because "there is 'no community' there,". Which makes me feel like there's a massive plague of undiagnosed ADHD people who think they're normal.

My personal opinion at the end of the day? I think the problem with turning on beliefs on a dime at the root, is people are being jerked around by fear. People are being jerked around by manipulative assholes and fearmongers who want people afraid, either for amusement, for power, for clicks/money, or for attention.

Most likely the kernel APIs the driver needs simply didn't change between releases. The Linux kernel makes no such guarantee, however. It does make this guarantee for the syscall interface though, so you can compile something with e.g. kernel 3.10's headers and run it on kernel 6.

Hyprland is an open source Wayland compositor based on wlroots, a project I started back in 2017 to make it easier to build good Wayland compositors. It’s a project which is loved by its users for its emphasis on customization and “eye candy” – beautiful graphics and animations, each configuration tailored to the unique look and feel imagined by the user who creates it. It’s a very exciting project!

Unfortunately, the effect is spoilt by an incredibly toxic and hateful community. I cannot recommend Hyprland to anyone who is not prepared to steer well clear of its community spaces.
