Made as an extension of the main moderation recruitment thread, this thread is meant specifically for developer recruitment for /leftypol/.

We are asking for tech-orientated volunteers to help with development of the site's code and features, especially if you have experience with web design, common website coding languages, and/or development of mobile apps.

To Apply:

1. Log into your e-mail site of choice, and compose an email directed towards [email protected]
2. Decide on a short code word or phrase to identify yourself with, using it as the first part of your email and posting it on this thread.
3. Answer a short questionnaire, outlined below:

How would you describe your personal political tendency?
How long have you browsed or posted on /leftypol/ or her alt-boards?
Have you any experience working with leftist groups in the past?
How do you want to help the administration of leftypol.org?

>idk what hashes are
Nta, but essentially hashes are a fundamental security measure. Before hashes, passwords were just kept on servers and what not in plain text. This has two main concerns: A. if a malicious actor gains accsess to the site, the passwords are right there for exploitation and B: maybe I don't trust the person I'm sending my password to. Hence, encryption was introduced. At a very simple level, hashing just involves taking a given password (doesnt have to be a password but using this as an example) and processes it through a mathematical algorithm that rearranges and/or changes the password in such a way the output looks nothing alike to the original. Modern-day hashes do this mathematical algorithm hundreds of times over, for extra security.
<Back to how this matters to you
When you scan a wifi network, such as using airdump, occasionally the wifi router will broadcast the wifi password as a hash. Otherwise, your phone wouldn't be able to connect. You can use airdump to find the hash, save it to a file, then simply upload the file to your computer, and using a software such as Hashcat, you can then crack it.

Has anyone heard about this new dating app called Duolicious? It's supposedly designed to help you meet like-minded individuals based on your personality. Sounds like a neat concept, but I can't help feeling a bit skeptical about it.

First off, how accurate can these personality assessments really be? I mean, are we reducing the complexity of human relationships to a mere algorithm? And what about privacy concerns? With all the data breaches happening these days, I'm wary of handing over intimate details of my personality to some tech company.

Plus, there's the whole capitalist angle. Is this just another way to monetize loneliness and exploit our desire for connection? It feels like these apps are more about making profits than genuinely helping people find meaningful relationships.

I'm curious to hear your thoughts on this. Do you think Duolicious is a step forward in online dating, or just another tech gimmick preying on our emotions?

Mastodon and Lemmy/Kbin are lively platforms. But they still don't have enough users and content to be able to replace their proprietary counterparts.

I just wish something big would happen, that these capitalist corporations would just make one big mistake that would lead to everyone flooding to the foss alternatives. We need to take back the power and stop relying on private companies to regulate our online interactions. Companies are only driven by profit and the dollar bill, these alternatives are created purely out of goodwill and good intentions. Stop the enshittification now! Freedom from private platforms now! Let the fediverse spread freedom to all!

They're growing pretty steady. It's definitely reached the point where there's enough stuff posted per day that it can be one's main social, but I do find myself supplenenting it with stuff like cohost and the occasional tumblr search.

People on there need to learn to hashtag more, there's a lot of stuff if you look around, but the usual strategy of searching for your interests when you first get here may be unfruitful even if there's plenty of stuff on that topic simply not tagged as such.

Hopefully with the AI hype train keeps going long enough that the corpos make their users exodus a few more times. We need a new tech snakeoil pretty soon or the investors will get bored.

They will never replace their proprietary counterparts because the main appeal of the fediverse, being decentralized, is the opposite of the main appeal of the mainstream platforms, being centralized and thus being able to find anything and anyone in the same place. Both approaches have their own pros and cons. The sooner you accept that the sooner you will appreciate the fediverse for what it is today.

This literally happened on both Twitter and Reddit, leading tens if not hundreds of thousands of users to Mastodon and Lemmy respectively. I was there for a year before the Reddit API change, when a couple of hundred people turned into thousands and thousands of redditors.

This is why I don't trust nerds. Computer systems have become too complex and nobody actually knows, whats happening under the hood. When nerds say: "Bro, it's totally secure! Trust me!" Don't trust them! Don't trust computers! I have no clue how I will organize my life in the future, but I tell you this much, I will try to rely as less as possible on computers.

>Having met the initial design goals of working as a multiprocessing, distributed system capable of functioning on heterogeneous hardware, the Mach project moved on to the next step: weaning BSD out of the kernel space entirely. Mach 3.0 was intended to be a true microkernel system that could support an external operating system (like BSD) living outside the kernel space. Theoretically, Mach would be even able to host multiple external operating systems at the same time.
>Attempts to accomplish this failed spectacularly. The performance issues involved with pulling operating system functions out of the kernel developed into an intractable problem. Designing and optimizing a microkernel in general was found to be outrageously complex. Further, the basic concept of a microkernel was found to be poorly suited to the needs of general purpose computing.
>While some microkernels work very well for what they were designed to do, it became increasingly obvious by the mid 90's that the basic premise of Mach to act as a microkernel and host potentially any operating system as a personality outside the kernel… was at a technological dead end. Consequently, the Mach microkernel, and all the projects intending to use it as a microkernel, eventually faded into oblivion.
http://www.roughlydrafted.com/0506.mk1.html
To be fair unix has many characteristics that make designing a practical microkernel particularly hard. QNX seems to have got it right, but it has been languishing as a closed-source embedded platform for decades now.

 No.24966

>>24965
the performance problems with microkernels have been getting less and less important over the years. cpus have many cores, are colossally faster, and they also increase in speed at a greater rate than storage, so they spend most of their time waiting for storage to respond, so that becomes the bottleneck instead of ipc. also there's been CPU architecutral improvements, such as x86-64 adding the SYSCALL instruction, which is basically hardware acceleration for task switching.

 No.24968

>>24966
>they spend most of their time waiting for storage to respond, so that becomes the bottleneck instead of ipc
IPC is memory-bound in a badly designed microkernel. In Mach, many messages need to be copied from one process space to another. QNX extensively uses shared memory and provides more streamlined message passing semantics in general. AmigaOS circumvents the issue entirely by not having memory protection.
