Is it the future? Will we see the death of physical consumer hardware and the rise of "hardware subscriptions?"

Is there a FOSS solution to creating my own low-latency cloud computing network? Ex: setting up a server and streaming it to a SBC or something.

Was DOS based Windows any good?

Remember when Windows was just a GUI to DOS? I do, and I remember loving it.

Is it just nostalgia or was it actually good?

Dangerous RF levels?

im about 40 or so yards from a newly renovated mcdonalds and getting a really solid signal on my phone(which has a terrible antenna) not sure if 5GHz or 2.4

anyway isnt it dangerous to have this highly populated radio wave atmosphere?

seems like there are too many channel options and there should just be one antenna in a single city if thats not the case...

this guy seems to think so.

honestly im not an expert but i have read quite a bit more than the average wifi user and i see these towers everywhere. have you seen the gauge wire they use to amplify the beaconing signal? its 2-3 in diameter.

let me know what u think

Well lads I need to learn this crap at some point… Can somebody please explain how to use it? For the sake of simplicity I want to get familiar with it while doing a solo programming project with a local repository (so no Github or any of that crap).

I want to be able to revert back to a previous version in case I mess something up. Do I commit changes every time I'm sure everything is working correctly after implementing something? I would appreciate if somebody did a quick rundown on the development process using Git because all the stuff I find online is confusing and assumes everything is apart of some big project with several people on Github.

8ch Attention-Hungry Games 32

Last Round: >>74047

Archive of Past Rounds:!BA8V0KYD!eRw01c3zLKSa3wzSEHE00g (Updated to Round 26)

Hello /sudo/. Some time ago, CodeMonkey wanted to try a Hunger Games event for advertising boards using the global announcement feature. Since MANDATORY FUCKING OVERTIME has returned, I'm back to running these on Sunday morning. That being said, I have Good Friday off (and thus, I won't be working Saturday) so I could run Saturday then. Maybe.

For the 8chan Attention-Hungry Games, any board with less than 300 users can nominate themselves to participate, with up to 48 boards being able to participate (or we can go to 24 or 36 if we don't get enough boards for some odd reason). These 48 or so boards compete on a Hunger Games simulator hosted on BrantSteele. The current code for the regular events as of this writing is at which is based off of

The Mansion code that I used once but regretted using afterwards is at from >>>/hungergames/17115

Anyway, the winner gets to be advertised as a global announcement for about a week.

As for the requirements for signing up:

1. No boards that promote raiding other 8chan boards.

2. Must have less than 300 active users at the start of the game.

3. Can't have won the hunger games in the past week. Last week's winner is >>>/h8s/

4. Need to submit a SFW sentence that advertises their board that CodeMonkey can put in the global announcement. (NSFW boards are welcome to join, but the announcement should be SFW). Failure to do so will result in anons deciding your sentence via dubs, usually to your detriment. CodeMonkey will be the one to determine what is and what isn't SFW as he controls the global announcements.

5. It is recommended you post a picture with your nomination, and that picture should be square as it will be stretched otherwise. I will determine the gender of you tribute based on the picture. If I can't tell, I am defaulting to M. Also, MLP images will be ignored unless it came from a MLP board, if the BO approves of it, or from a certain image for /suicide/ until their BO says otherwise as they had that certain image before I added this part of the rule.

6. If a BO of a board does not want to participate, please don't nominate it. Board Owners, if you don't want to participate but someone nominated you, please let me know before the start of the round and I will remove it from the list. As of now, /miku/ and /jp/ have asked not to participate.

7. Nominate only 1 board per IP hash per post. For posts that nominate more than 1 board and an IP hash nominating multiple boards, I will take the first one and ignore the rest, and I will know if you are samefagging. For those with VPNs, note that someone may be using the same VPN as you when nominating, which means they may have the same IP Hash and I can't distinguish VPN users from normal ones.

8. Due to complaining in previous rounds, I am limiting the amount of furry and Star Trek boards to 2 of each for a bit.

9. Once a round concludes, please wait until the next thread is created before you nominate a board.

The next round will start

Sunday at about 8am to 10am ET

Here we fucking go again.

With that all being said, nominate your boards now and suggest some events for either code if you want (or even better, put your events into the mansion code since I won't mind people messing with that code. Just let me know if you do update it). Also, if I missed anything, let me know so I can correct the OP for next time.

MacWorld 1999

What happened? It seems like everything they were pushing for computers to be nearly 20 years ago (Best performance, "top-of-the-line" technology, built to last, "We can do more", aesthetically pleasing) has dried up with only one one of those aspects still remaining (Aesthetically pleasing). Was it the fact that all the competition (Amiga) died? That too many people got into computers who honestly didn't care beyond the fact "It works"? What was it that killed Apple's desire to be the best home computer because I don't get that feel from their systems today?

Anyone on /tech/ ever done research for finding an alternative to Youtube for hosting videos with less or no censorship?

>inb4 use youtube-dl to bypass the botnet

I do, but I'm looking for another platform that doesn't shut you down you for posting shit they don't like to be known by the public or what they deem (((problematic))).

I was about to do the research myself but wondered if anyone did this before me or has some infographs on it.

Google Removes "View Image"

So Google just shot themselves in the foot for some unknown reason. They made some deal with Getty Images to allow their images on Google Images in exchange for removing the view image button. For some reason, Google seems to believe that anyone at all gives a shit about Getty Images.

Is there any hope Google has reached the point where they begin to implode from being too big? Why would they make a deal with some irrelevant company that requires them to make such a big change to Google?

To the Anti-UNIX spammer

Stop posting emails from Anti-UNIX Usenet groups made in the early 1990's. You fail to realize that they are only sore losers in a culture war when you can read about in "A Brief History of Hackerdom" by Eric S. Raymond. They are ironic hipsters mad that UNIX won over their sad little LISP culture surrounding the PDP10. Anything they have to say is pointless, and many of them used UNIX anyway. Don't like UNIX, use Plan 9 then faggot.

site's dying


>The House of Representatives is about to vote on a bill that would force online platforms to censor their users. The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA, H.R. 1865) might sound noble, but it would do nothing to stop sex traffickers. What it would do is force online platforms to police their users’ speech more forcefully than ever before, silencing legitimate voices in the process.

>The House Rules Committee is about to approve a new version of FOSTA [.pdf] that incorporates most of the dangerous components of SESTA. This new Frankenstein’s Monster of a bill would be a disaster for Internet intermediaries, marginalized communities, and even trafficking victims themselves.

The bill changes section 230 of the CDA, the law that protects website owners from liability for what their users post, to carve out an exception for instances of human trafficking. Site owners can be held liable and subject to a criminal fine or imprisonment for not more than 20 years.



Voting on the House Floor is scheduled for THIS TUESDAY. Start spreading this information on as many websites as you can before it's too late. If you know anyone with a large audience try and get them to spread the word. If this bill becomes law then it's GAME OVER for free speech on the internet.

/tech/ aesthetics

Since apparently we hate flatnimalism now even though we were sucking its conceptual dick back in /g/ before it went mainstream, what's the new I-can-not-form-my-own-opinion /tech/ approved meme design trend we should be drooling over?

Image detection

so i just had an idea for a test

it would sort of be the calgary corpus of image recognition

think of a 20 sided die, where every side has the number it represents printed in english (or handwritten, or a different language, the dice can be modified but the principle is the same)

this die would be in a transparent box with a camera above it looking down

the box would be shaken, rolling the die

the camera would then take a picture

the goal for any algorithm attempting this problem would be to determine the number that was rolled

anyways i have no experience with image detection at all, how would i go about finding people to try this problem

Freenom DNS

free domain names are nice, but "anonymous" DNS??

Real or fake? I think their focus on "ads" is reason for doubt.

I'm currently using opennic dns, only problem is I have to switch servers every once in a while on my router, which I find out when websites stop loading...

/v/ moderation powerhungry fags yet again

I'm aware from cursory examination that there's already threads here on the faggery of /v/'s volunteers and of course mark, so pre-emptively I feel the need to express how fucking retarded this shit is. I know shit's not been perfect for a while, but it's insane to see just how much the place has degenerated.

Something like 2 hours ago, a volunteer removed+tempbanned the OP of some MLP looking fighting game thread. Just as I'm about to call the OP a fag for caring about a generic fighting game and being furfag-tier, the thread gets deleted. "gee" methinks, "someone did post cp at around this epoch, maybe it suffered another bout of that".

Yet resting before one's eyes in perfect clarity, the reason stood out:

Created a new 1-hour ban on /v/ (#44973) with reason: neither shilling nor ponies are welcome. if you are bound and determined to talk about this game take it to a fightan general

Take a look for yourself:

What kind of bullshit is that? In not one of /v/'s rules do they actually denounce that kind of content, which even fucking 4cucks made sure to have in writing back in the day. Had they done nothing, I'd be (verbally) attacking that OP, and yet now here I am defending it because the subhumans in charge of /v/ apparently care more about their fee-fees than FREE speech. Is it so hard to comprehend?

Free speech means even retards are allowed to speak, they'll just get called fags. And participating in a board is voluntary, yes, but then the scope of acceptability ought to be laid out right there.

The fags themselves even have it written as an addendum to their own rules that "If you dislike something, use the Filter and Hide functions - only report a thread or a post if it is breaking a rule;"

Copy of their rules, for whatever difference it will make:

As an additional aside, the post really wasn't that bad in terms of shillery, certainly it made an attempt to actually describe the game and not just go on with buzzwords and filler on how it's so revolutionary and memey, the devs are /ourguy/ and you all should try it. Come to think of it, even shilling isn't actually banned in the rules, at worse #8 which still only talks about hardcore shitposting/derailing/avatarfagging in threads.

luxe: a lovingly hand crafted game engine

Hello there! Do you enjoy artisanal, lovingly handcrafted vegan code? Cool. Looks like you went through a long journey to get here.

luxe is a free, cross platform, open source, rapid development game engine. in short: it's almost what I'd write if I wanted to make my own specifically for luxe, with deep integration for the engine (except written by a language engineer with years of experience making languages). It's artisinal software. Carved out of hardwood by a man with a beard and a flannel shirt. every design goal is considered in depth and not in a vacuum.

Designed as a 2D first engine, luxe aims to provide a strong 2D toolset ready to make games. This applies whether it's a one hour or one+ year project. our devlog is lovely. This 1.0 version of the engine is not yet available, the source will come along after it is :)

Is it going to be open source? It will be. Oh wow, I just blew my own mind.

Ah yes, luxe

tl;dr for Beginners

>decentralized P2P network

>like torrenting, but instead of getting a .torrent file or magnet link that shares a pre-set group of files, you get a hash of the files which is searched for in the network and served automatically

>you can add files to the entire network with one line in the CLI or a drag-and-drop into the web interface

>HTTP gateways let you download any hash through your browser without running IPFS

>can stream video files in mpv or VLC (though it's not recommended unless the file has a lot of seeds)

How it Works

When you add a file, the files are cryptographically hashed and a merkle tree is created. These hashes are announced by the IPFS client to the nodes in the network. (The IPFS team often describes the network as a "Merkle forest.") Any user can request one of these hashes and the nodes set up peer connections automatically. If two users share the same file then both of them can seed it to a third person requesting the hash, as opposed to .torrent files/magnets which require both seeders use the same file.


>Is it safe?

It's about as safe as a torrent right now, ignoring the relative obscurity bonus. They are working on integration with TOR and I2P. Check out libp2p if you're curious.

>Is it fast?

Finding a seeder can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. It's slowly improving but still requires a fair bit of optimization work. Once the download starts, it's as fast as the peers can offer, just like a torrent.

>Is it a meme?

You be the judge.

It has implementations in Go (meant for desktop integration) and Javascript (meant for browser/server integration) in active development that are functional right now, it has a bunch of side projects that build on it, and it divides important parts of its development (IPLD, libp2p, etc) into separate projects that allow for drop-in support for many existing technologies.

On the other hand, it's still alpha software with a small userbase and has poor network performance.

Websites of interest

Official IPFS HTTP gateway. Slap this in front of a hash and it will download a file from the network. Be warned that this gateway is slower than using the client and accepts DMCAs.

Pomf clone that utilizes IPFS. Currently 10MB limit.

Also hosts a gateway at which doesn't have any DMCA requests as far as I can tell.


IPFS index, has some links (add before to access without installing IPFS)


What's the general consensus on ReactOS? Kind of seems like a "worst of both worlds" thing to me (having done little research).


What do you think about Julia? Will it replace R or Matlab in some of their usecases? What do you think is an appropriate use for the language?

I'm particularly interested in hearing if someone made the switch from R and if yes, why.


faster for large datasets - if needed, has REPL, can call R if you need functions from your packages, seems to also compile on Open and FreeBSD, community seems eager to produce useful packages, plotting tools seem to be capable, syntax doesn't seem to be a mishmash of ideas like R, parallelism if you need it


python-style indentation, package system uses github, function overloading, there's a C transpiler, not made to be general-purpose, dynamic typing, not 1.0 yet


takes actually longer for small amounts of data (because of JIT compiler) than similiar slower languages, development seems to break packages as of now

On a sidenote: their community guidelines seem reasonable, but I've become allergic to those.

>In particular, do not sexualize the term "Julia" or any other aspects of the project. While "Julia" is a female name in many parts of the world, the programming language is not a person and does not have a gender.

Don't sexualize the Julia, can't make this up

The Decentralization Hype Circus

So after being aware of the numerous softwares that aim for decentralization, or a more refined federation or distributed web, the big questions still stand up in the first spot:

How much of this wave of decentralized software has substantial hype?

Is there a usable use case for the hundreds of millions that are 'aware' of the crimes and wrongdoings of the corporate operators, but are not technically literate enough to wrap their heads around using alternatives?

What would you find to be the ideal hype-to-substance ratio?

When will the casual end user be able to run decentralized software?

The announcement of Neocities' IPFS implementation of their website was over 3 years ago. The US states of Illinois and New Jersey are looking into the technology of decentralization and blockchain technology, and the proposed Spanish Catalan state is currently using IPFS to host some sort of files in order to bypass the censorship of the Spanish government. And according to patch notes, the latest version of Firefox will become more friendly to alternatives such as IPFS, DAT, and Secure Scuttlebutt/SSB.

What do you think of this wave proposing against centralized tech?

Why are websites so shit?

Because it is 2018 and people have forgotten how to static HTML. All that lovely rendering code in your browser goes unused as people rewrite it in Javascript, badly; or even in C++ and then compile to web assembly, that’s all the rage now, because why stick with one layer of abstraction when you can involve three?

Oh, and of course everyone rolls their own, so that website with the dancing pigs not only has its own stack, but also one for every ad and tracking network it pulls in. It takes a whole lot of javascript to provide that transparent pixel!

The situation is no better on the server side, of course. Why write static HTML for your pageful of text when you can have a web framework pulling C++ from a SQL database, compiling it to web assembly on the fly and vomiting forth to the browser just in time because someone might want their flying unicorn background to have different colour sparkles and pointing those people at a different static location is just gauche.

No, I’m not bitter, far from it. It all makes work for the working man to do.

So I know that the admins here don't want to interfere with the moderation here, fine, I don't agree but whatever.


There's a growing number of people on /pol/ who now suspect that imkampft/HotpocketX is now in control of the moderation of the BO account Heil. While I know you won't change the account, I think its disingenuous and deceitful to allow someone to use someone else's account. I mean, can we just get confirmation that this is the case? Would probably be easy for an admin to do. Hard to continue using a board that does shady shit like that. It's almost on par with that reddit faggot editing people's posts.

OpenBSD is a meme

OpenBSD is a meme.


default FS doesn't even support SSD TRIM, and I don't think OpenBSD supports anything modern like ZFS or BTRFS.


"Only two remote holes in the default install!!!!!!!"


I hope you realize that this literally only applies to a base system install with absolutely no packages added. In other words, not exactly representative or meaningful towards... anything really


A few years ago, OpenBSD was actually in danger of shutting down because they couldn't keep the fucking lights on. How could anyone see this as a system they could rely on, when it could be in danger of ending at any time?


"B-But OpenBSD is written in strictly standards-compliant C! Clearly that's better than muh GNU virus!"

So you're not allowed to create extensions to the standard? You should only implement the standard and nothing more? Keep in mind that this is nothing like EEE, as the GNU extensions are Free Software, with freely available source code, as opposed to proprietary shite. People should be allowed to innovate and improve things.

If you're gonna be anal about standards-compliance, then why let people make their own implementations anyway? Why not have the standards organizations make one C implementation and force everyone to use it?

A world where everything has already been programmed...

A world where no 'reinventing the wheel' is possible. How would it look like?

How will 8chan deal with the U.S. gutting CDA section 230 protections?

>The House of Representatives is about to vote on a bill that would force online platforms to censor their users. The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA, H.R. 1865) might sound noble, but it would do nothing to stop sex traffickers. What it would do is force online platforms to police their users’ speech more forcefully than ever before, silencing legitimate voices in the process.

>The House Rules Committee is about to approve a new version of FOSTA [.pdf] that incorporates most of the dangerous components of SESTA. This new Frankenstein’s Monster of a bill would be a disaster for Internet intermediaries, marginalized communities, and even trafficking victims themselves.

The bill changes section 230 of the CDA, the law that protects website owners from liability for what their users post, to carve out an exception for instances of human trafficking. Site owners can be held liable and subject to a criminal fine or imprisonment for not more than 20 years.



Voting on the House Floor is scheduled for THIS TUESDAY. Start spreading this information on as many websites as you can before it's too late. If you know anyone with a large audience try and get them to spread the word. If this bill becomes law then it's GAME OVER for free speech on the internet.

Why are the free as in speech options so dismal?

I needed to get a smartphone for my job and have been doing what little I could to prevent companies from making money by datamining me. But the libre options available in places like F-droid are pathetic. Many can't even open PDF or music files from my SD card while the programs that make money snooping around my phone do.

If people like me who are aware and willing to use free as in speech options and support it wherever possible are having this much trouble, there is no way this movement is going to grow let alone survive.

About to finalize my lock pick set, should look something like this except im riveting and gluing some steel handles to triple the thinkness.

Do you guys have any advice on hardening?

I'm thinking of heating them up to critical heat after ive shaped them, then dunking in water. and sanding them down.

Happy browsing.

Post your current desktop, I'll go first. Taken with an external camera for added aesthetic value.

Announcing Rust 1.24

The Rust team is happy to announce a new version of Rust, 1.24.0. Rust is a systems programming language focused on safety, speed, and concurrency.

This release contains two very exciting new features: rustfmt and incremental compilation!

For years now, we’ve wanted a tool that automatically can reformat your Rust code to some sort of “standard style.” With this release, we’re happy to announce that a preview of rustfmt can be used with 1.24 stable.

Back in September of 2016 (!!!), we blogged about Incremental Compilation. While that post goes into the details, the idea is basically this: when you’re working on a project, you often compile it, then change something small, then compile again. Historically, the compiler has compiled your entire project, no matter how little you’ve changed the code. The idea with incremental compilation is that you only need to compile the code you’ve actually changed, which means that that second build is faster.

As of Rust 1.24, this is now turned on by default. This means that your builds should get faster! Don’t forget about cargo check when trying to get the lowest possible build times.

This is still not the end story for compiler performance generally, nor incremental compilation specifically. We have a lot more work planned in the future. For example, another change related to performance hit stable this release: codegen-units is now set to 16 by default. One small note about this change: it makes builds faster, but makes the final binary a bit slower. For maximum speed, setting codegen-units to 1 in your Cargo.toml is needed to eke out every last drop of performance.

13 Major Vulnerabilities Discovered in AMD Zen Architecture (Including Backdoors)

So you thought AMD was not as botnet as Intel, well think again.

These exploits are categorized into 4 main groups.


The Masterkey vulnerability bypasses Secure Boot. Secure Boot is supposed to ensure that if NSA-kun, or someone else messes with your hardware that your computer will fail to boot. With this vulnerability it is possible to gain arbitrary code execution inside of the security processor inside of the cpu, AMD's equivalent to Intel's management engine. For those unware, these security processors run in ring -2 which is synonymous to saying that the cpu is aware of what it is doing. This means that it can run code, read/write memory, and more without the cpu realizing it.


Ryzenfall is a vulnerability which let's you run code on the security processor of a running system as long as you have administrative privileges. Let me repeat that, a RUNNING system. Additionally, "the malware can spread over the network to other machines."


I do not seem to fully understand what this vulnerability is, but it appears to be related to accessing protected memory if you have administrative privileges on an AMD EPYC server.


Chimera is a class of vulnerabilities in series of motherboards from AMD which are vulnerable to being backdoored. This backdoor requires just knowing a hardcoded password which can lead to arbitrary code execution of the chipset. Keep in mind that the chipset has access to pretty much everything in your computer, your memory, networking, etc.

Note that all of these vulnerabilities need some sort of administrative privileges to install / exploit. Additionally, the release of these vulnerabilities was only ~24 hour after they had contacted AMD about it.

Warning: These vulnerabilities may be fake

There's some reasonable speculation that parts or the whole of this release is fake and may be a FUD campaign to benefit Intel / manipulate AMD's stock. I have not looked into this very much, so feel free to research this idea to help educate all of us. These vulnerabilities are a big deal if true, but are maybe a little too good to be true. Especially considering it being rushed out to the public. For example, one thing I personally noticed was that the (((Israeli))) security team, CTS Labs's website: does not support https. failed

PirateBox thread

Hello chummers. I decided to start a PirateBox and I need your help to fill it up.

The hardware I'm using is a tplink wireless router with a 32gb drive.

Rename /b/ /v/ /tv/ etc and make those names unavailable and maybe the "users will decide which board to use" would actually fucking work.

Making a /cyber/ game

Soup fags. I've been giving this a lot of thought lately and, well, I want to make my own game. Nothing impossibly like "the next WoW killer" or "like GTA combined with Fallout" or some other stupid shit like that, it's a pretty low-key idea that shouldn't be too hard to make. And obviously it's cyberpunk.

The only problem is programming. I can design, draw and write but programming is definitely not one of my skills. Are there any bored coders here that would like to collaborate? If not, are there any good places where I can start learning how to program a game?

FreiBSD: An OS/cryptotoken/distributed network based on the economics of the Third Reich

Started brainstorming this earlier in response to FreeBSD's new and improved e-hugs = rape CoC. I don't have the nitty gritty worked out entirely, but the idea is to have a fork of FreeBSD called FreiBSD, in which tokens are distributed for commits, for useful contributions to the integrated git repo, and server uptime using the OS. Tokens can be sold, or burned to use distributed services over the network (drawing on InfernoOS for some of this code) and blockchain services. So think of the machines running this OS as the citizens, the network as the reich, and the crypto as the reichsmark, backed by labor and industry. I figure by rewarding productivity and involvement in the community, as well as having a flexible and useful token, would be enough to get people on board. Of course, the other purpose is to piss off FreeBSD enough to generate enough negative publicity to ensure its success.

Initial steps shouldn't be too difficult - it's starting as a fork, after all, and an erc20 take like a half an hour to get published, which can switch upon launch from a coin to a usable token, a la vechain.

Not here to shill, just wanted some input and some ideas. I don't think something like this has been attempted so far, and there's a lot of possibilities in integrating blockchain tech into an OS.

Bundled with the OS will be a browser called FuhrerFox. Among its many features, it will drop a gold star badge on any website owned or run by jews, and will have (((coincidence mode))) on by default. Stakeholders will require DNA tests, of course.

I figure I could get a bare bones alpha distro up in about a month, and I figure this could foster a good, meritocratic community of developers immune to LGBTech bullshit. For individually we are weak, like a single twig, but as a bundle, we form a mighty faggot. Any suggestions? Anyone interested in getting in at the ground floor? What other aspects and ideas from National Socialism and Fascism could be implemented in this project? What should the Code of Conduct look like?

Apple Employee Threatened to Leak Customer's Data

It Just trust us Goy Works.

>The man, surnamed Qin, told Sixth Tone that when he called Apple customer support to inquire about closing his iCloud account, he was infuriated by the employee’s “arrogant and neglectful attitude,” and the two exchanged verbal barbs. Wishing to protect his privacy, Qin refused to disclose any information about himself.

>Qin eventually hung up, but the dispute didn’t end there. The employee — who claimed to be a “senior technical advisor,” according to Qin — called back later that night from his own phone. Qin wrote in the article that he was told to check his three email accounts, all of which were linked to iCloud. In the email he found waiting for him, the employee said that if Qin failed to add him on messaging app QQ within one hour, he would leak the personal information Qin had stored in the cloud.

>“I used my position to copy your information,” the employee said, according to a phone conversation Qin recorded and posted online. “I can’t say you’ll wish you were dead, but I can at least cause some hassles for you,” said the technical advisor in a polite but menacing tone.

The Death of OpenCL

A few years ago, I was really enthusiastic about OpenCL and it seemed like everyone else on the internet was as well. What happened? I started looking around the other day for some introductory documentation and the most recent stuff I could find was from ~2013. I'm really regretting not learning it now. Is OpenCL dead? Has Nvidia completely fucked us?

What went wrong?

“Most people want their computer to be like their TV set: you buy it, plug it in, and it works perfectly for the next 10 years. Suffice it to say that current computers—and especially their operating systems—are not even close. We will consider the job done when the average user has never experienced a system crash in his or her lifetime and no computer has a RESET button.”

Here's a recent example: >>>/kocsog/4155

The images was there a few days ago, here it is archived by the Wayback Machine:

I know that I can repost it somewhere else, I've spent hours finding the missing images and then hunting down copies that match the sha256 hash, sometimes without success.

Should I just give up? Am I too much of a brainlet to learn programming? Why is it so hard to go from the theoretical basis to actual practice?

Why does large tech companies treat their consumers like nigger cattle /tech/? All I ever want is for them to respect me as a consumer, that's all. Why is that so hard for them to understand.

Does /tech/ know about Holochain?

"Holochain enables a distributed web with user autonomy built directly into its architecture and protocols."

Friendly reminder that this man condones the rape of a rotting corpse
