>>5360 I mean you can install Void and update the packages once a year or whenever you want. It's better than installing fucking Debian Stable where literally everything is outdated and meant for server use, plus makes you deal with Poetteringware.
>>5362 If you don't update, it's going to be outdated, yes. I don't think that's OP's concern lol. The point of Debian Stable is that it's meant to be outdated, meaning the frozen packages are thoroughly tested to ensure their long-term quality, and updates are provided only when strictly necessary, which is very rarely. An arbitrary user-side freeze of a rolling-release is the complete opposite of that.
>>5378 Debian Stable is outdated out of the box.
>>5378 Youre recommending a distro MEANT FOR SERVER USE. Like the other anon says its going to be severely lacking and you shouldnt use it unless you're on hardware from the early 2000s or youre a tech illiterate boomer who only uses the web browser and absolutely nothing else Whatever OPs complaining about strikes me more as something you see more often on corporate or open source normie software rather than niche libre autism
>>5379 Did I stutter? >>5380 >Youre recommending a distro MEANT FOR SERVER USE. Meant by whom? Not by Debian project, nor by people who use it on their personal computers. I don't think even red text will help you here.

Is it something practicle for insurgent groups or is it a giant meme?
>>1921 It's based AF IMO
>>1921 How much is possible from scratch?
>>4891 https www.sainsmart.com/ If you do everything from scratch, you'll have to do it yourself. But look up the YT vid of the golden gun (an AR-10 made from spent ammo) Granted, that guy shows off probably a million dollars in machinery but with enough care and practice you could build it all yourself, probably in less than a year of self-discipline, after which you'd have a program you could shove across the wires that could turn a solid block of metal into a mill-spec lower receiver. So long as lower parts kits and replacement uppers can still be you, you'll have yourself a gun. There's a reason why guns are considered a god-given right, and not a man's-laws privilege. The gray matter between your ears plus a few square feet in the garage can get you pretty far in life.
How do you machine the barrel? Old rifling machines are pretty expensive.

I am amazed that more people are not talking about Section 230 here. What is section 230? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_230 >At its core, Section 230(c)(1) provides immunity from liability for providers and users of an "interactive computer service" who publish information provided by third-party users: >No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider. >The statute in Section 230(c)(2) further provides "Good Samaritan" protection from civil liability for operators of interactive computer services in the removal or moderation of third-party material they deem obscene or offensive, even of constitutionally protected speech, as long as it is done in good faith. There has been a consorted effort by the united states government to destroy section 230 in the last 4 years. Destroying section 230 would turn the internet into the hellscape everyone claimed it would become (and to a part has) with the destruction of net neutrality. This thread will be, from hence forth, for discussion of section 230 and happenings surrounding it. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/section-230-why-trump-s-covid-misinfo-puts-facebook-and-twitter-in-a-bind/ar-BB19Lzs2 Both Trump and Biden want to repeal 230, fyi.

>>5367 >Missing the point to be a pedantic faggot. Do you have anything productive to say or are you going to continue to glow in the dark?
>>5368 You're the one missing the point, I'm only calling you out for talking like a faggot. :)
>>5332 >We need decentralized anonymous forums like NNTPchan. Technical solutions are good and necessary but we also need to find a way to deal with the new inquisition(s) that if forming. They are not going manage to close off the internet no matter what they do, it is impossible to stop people from building new information transmission systems from scratch if need be. The General intellect can not be privatized. But we could fall into a info dark age for decades until new resilient information channels can re-assert them self in a way that society at large can access them. We need to self criticize. The open internet is being threatened not only because of capitalism, but also the failure to make good information dominant. The signal to noise ratio is really bad. The internet is a unreliable information source even for researching technical subjects where truth and falsehoods are unambiguous. Figuring out how to deal with the ideological sabotage of capitalism via intentional disinformation flooding, is on another level entirely. Every faction of capital or special interest is funding (dis)information production that distorts frameworks for referencing information, which is far more destructive than mere factual lies.

https://www.theverge.com/2020/9/29/21493094/amazon-one-palm-recognition-hand-payments-amazon-go-store Why even bother with chips under your skin when your eye, palm or face are more than enough?

Biometrics are not practical, if somebody steals a keycard, you replace the keycard, if somebody steals your palm-print, you can't chop off your hand and grow a new one with a different palm print. Does capitalism have a anti-tool bias ? Fast-food does away with cutlery, smartphones do away with input devices like pens or keyboards, bio-metrics do away with keys. Is it really so bad if you need a helper tool for using an object ? I get doing away with hazardous cans that need a can-opener, but keys ?
Applying for a job or even working requires smartphones frequently, so it is basically required.
Why bother with eye, palm or face when your walking posture is enough?

>>5327 >Gen 2 Ryzen kicks Gen 1 Ryzen's ass. Is yours AF? If not, consider getting a cheap used one.

Should I stick with green or amber?
allebei lelijk oetz
>>5284 green imo
amber looks cool and the warm color is better for the eye, blue light is bad for your eyes.
Amber is the obviously superior choice. It's much easier on the eyes. It's almost like it's making love to me.
Ok, so, if this answers your question. Fallout New Vegas -> default amber theme. Fallout 3 -> default Green Theme. Fallout New Vegas >>> Fallout 3. Which means. Amber theme >>> Green Theme

functional programming Comrade 09/30/2020 (Wed) 13:31:38 No. 5054 [Reply] [Last]
Why haven't you taken the fp pill?
I already do it for scientific simulation programming, but I really don't see the point in using it for anything else.
I like OCaml and Scheme
>>5054 I use clojure. Most of /tech/ knows at least one functional language anon.
Why yes, I have taken the Susspill.
I like Haskell but I don't find it very much use for the things I do.

https://github.com/Mishiranu/Dashchan https://github.com/maksrago/Dashchan-Extensions-ACF Anybody using this to post here? I'm fucking scared because until recently this project was looking over. No updates or anything then randomly out of nowhere got update notification and against my best judgement updated the app. It's got a new look and options now. But then got several more updates over the next few weeks. Almost one everyday. I don't know where to check or see why there are these updates coming from out of the blue. Bros please tell me theres not some hidden malware happening behind the scenes of this new UI changes
