I was bored, so instead of fixing the broken part of the CSS I posted yesterday I decided to write a Red Yotsuba theme. Maybe a little too breast cancer awareness, but I like it overall. What do you guy's think?It's possible to make really clean CSS theme selector using custom properties and &ltselect> tags, I might do that next and just have a dark, yotsuba, and red yotsuba theme.

>It's possible to make really clean CSS theme selector using custom properties and &ltselect> tags, I might do that next and just have a dark, yotsuba, and red yotsuba theme.I was kinda dead wrong about this, it seem barely even possible to have a theme selector of the sort I was thinking. I guess the way to solve this then would be to have slightly different URLs for each theme. Some sort of simple subdomain would likely be best. A bit disappointing though.

A leftist /tech/ board is great! Let's use it more, comrades!Are any oldfags around who had the joy to come in contact with pic related or other micro electronics from real socialistic states? Sadly I was born too late to have a opinion on their products.I read DDR lightbulbs were more durable than the western ones because they had no planned obsolesence; what do you think would our society today look like, if more elecronic products like smartphones were designed with a much longer lifetime in mind? Would the use-value of the products stay the same over time, or would it decrease with technical progress?

>What do you think would our society today look like, if more elecronic products like smartphones were designed with a much longer lifetime in mind? Would the use-value of the products stay the same over time, or would it decrease with technical progress?You get more standardisation, less form over function sacrifices (works better but has worse design), as far as durability goes , it depends long lasting batteries are just hard to make, what you definitely would get is better repairability.For smartphones you'd probably would have seen magnetic field tracked pens (used in graphic tablets) rather then the currently capacitive touchscreens, because the magnetic pens are easier to make and more precise, Resulting in a renaissance of handwritten text and social/cultural trends/development around penmanship and quick sketches.You'd probably would have seen a universal interface scheme, where all sorts of devices no longer would have buttons and nobs but rather an IR-port that turns your smartphone into a remote for everything. Also a much greater R&D focus on sensors turning smartphones in a portable scanner.Since socialism has a sort of protected commons that isn't at risk of being enclosed, you'd see more people contributing to projects like user-generated "cartography" type stuff where people digitize "note-worthy" features of "meat-space". Enabled by the scanner functionality.>Would the use-value of the products stay the same over time, or would it decrease with technical progress?I'm not sure what you mean with this, you might get better backporting for software to run on older technology, because there aren't any IP laws blocking people from pruning software to make it run.

Perhaps a declaration of technical principles would be a better term, but regardless the necessity of finding a means (beyond licenses out of necessity) to secure our software from outside meddling seems to be all the more essential the more I think about it. There are approximately 90 CVE's (70% due to memory safety) in each Linux kernel major version, many of which remain outstanding even after moving to the next version, with the average lifespan between 3 and 6 years for "high" and "critical" bugs. The Linux kernel is now approaching 28 million lines of poorly documented code, making it completely beyond what a actual audit is capable of assessing, beyond comprehension. More than this the development of the kernel and funding of the foundation are almost entirely in corporate hands. Linux is but a example, every large component of major infrastructure (and rest assured if it's major infrastructure it will become large) suffers from similar plights.What I'm not attempting to advance here is the suckless philosophy. In my opinion suckless goes beyond attempting to restrict the scope of their projects to an obsession with SLOC to the point of harming correctness and completeness (for a sound list of necessary features see here: http://www.loper-os.org/?p=284). They do not document their programs, following the mantra that code is documentation (which is true but insufficient). Additionally they fail to critique the accepted protocols and divisions of applications, which would allow them to not only make more correct complete software, but also to make in aggregate simpler software. As a example why make a separate windowing system, terminal multiplexer, terminal emulator, and text editor when these things could all be combined as extensions of one another. Why separate your text editor from your web browser? Why work with text streams and the file system instead of having a single address space? Why take X-Server for granted rather than building of Linux's frame-buffer.What issues is it that I'm pointing at here exactly:a) scope creepb) illiterate programmingc) unquestioned assumptions (primarily those given to us by unix)d) over-optimization (understandability, and completeness should be prioritized over micro-optimizations)e) insecure technologies (for example unassisted manual memory management, and unchecked type wraps)f) incomplete software (corner cases handled etc)[b]Can yoPost too long.

>>292>What are these "unquestioned assumptions given to us by unix"? Should I read "The Unix Hater's Handbook" to know? Would I be better served reading something else?That's a great book, although at this point many of the complaints are outdated you can still see some of the impacts, I'd encourage you to read it. Reading summaries of the Unix philosophy critically after reading https://www.dreamsongs.com/WorseIsBetter.html is also a good introduction.The most important thing though I think is to just think critically about what Unix supports. Is it actually reasonable to say that every program should serialize and parse its data rather than just passing actual data structures? Is it acceptable that there are no safety measures making things as simple as moving, editing, or deleting a files foot guns? Is it tolerably that programs' source can't be inspected and edited live like in Emacs but rather we have to make forks and separate applications for even the most simple change, if we're lucky we have a cumbersome add-on system opaque to the user. etc.

Guess I'll wrap up these principles into a nice toasty CoC:>Thou shalt operate in the interests of thy users, this is the ultimate commandment. Thy users will not always know what's best for them, so we may disagree with them, but try as we must to serve them.>Thou shalt make thy user interfaces as physically and mentally ergonomic as possible, while recognizing often we are not capable of making interfaces capable of providing this for every situation, and thusly must allow for customization. When thy hath been forced to trade off between the interests of the users and the interface or artistic direction thy will always side with the users. This is the penultimate commandment all else is tertiary.>Thou shalt make thy source code including the entire stack as understandable as possible. Certain components likely must be complex to reduce the undesirability of the system over all. Thy shalt always sacrifice undesirability for the sake of the interface and the users, but never for anything else.

I don't know if I am the only person here who knows what lokinet is, but, basically lokinet is an encryption service provider that acts like tor; tor in the sense that it encrypts your packets with multi-layer encryption and bounces them around through a series of relays.What makes it different is that it also acts like i2p in the sense that it also encrypts the encrypted packets in a secure SSL tunnel while bouncing them around making it truly anonymous.It's also a decentralized network of relays and nodes of which anyone can spring one up and become a part of and on top of that you can use it as your default DNS provider meaning you can use this network as a vpn with out having to go through shady capitalistic datamines claiming to protect your data.The down side is it's small right now and not a lot of people use it. It's fast though.Furthermore, I can't seem to get the relays you need when you try to use lokinet as a VPN to work. I spoke with the staff on their IRC network and they told me the relays are down for those specifically.I don't know if they ever got them up.Does anyone else fuck around with lokinet on /tech/?Here's their IRC:irc.volatile.bz +6697 or +9999lolikaastbgo5dtk.onion +6697 or +9999
