to add to the RSS thing, there should be appropriate <meta> tags to allow RSS readers to automagically find the feeds. this is perhaps more an issue to bring up upstream. also an RSS icon somewhere would be nice, but again this also probably belongs upstream


finally, I see that the feeds list threads in the order they were created rather than bump order. it might be nice if there were feeds for the latter, so that threads with new posts are shown as new

I'm so tired of my normie friends sending me shit like "wow look what AI did this time" but whenever I try to send them something that actually explains the functioning behind it, the drawbacks, societal costs, exploitation or whatever the only reaction is "well we can't stop technology"

I hate AI so much now, it is literally cryptoscam 2.0, tell me about it when it actually does something useful (without exporting intellectual labor to underpaid workers and calling it "ai")


Dear colleagues,

I would like to share with you a short example of Common Lisp code that I think demonstrates some of the elegant, efficient, clever and impressive features of this language. The code is a function that computes the factorial of a non-negative integer using tail recursion and a helper function.

(defun factorial (n)
  (labels ((fact (n acc)
             (if (zerop n)
                 (fact (1- n) (* n acc)))))
    (fact n 1)))

The function factorial takes a parameter n and calls a local function fact with n and 1 as arguments. The local function fact is defined using labels, which allows it to refer to itself recursively. The function fact takes two parameters: n and acc. The parameter acc is an accumulator that keeps track of the product of the numbers from n down to 1. The function fact checks if n is zero, in which case it returns the accumulator as the final result. Otherwise, it calls itself recursively with n-1 and n*acc as the new arguments. This way, the function fact does not need to use the call stack to store intermediate results, and can avoid stack overflow errors. This technique is called tail recursion, and it is supported by Common Lisp compilers as an optimization.

The function factorial is an example of how Common Lisp allows us to write concise, expressive and powerful code using features such as local functions, recursion, labels and arithmetic operations. I hope you find this example interesting and inspiring.

Your name



Literally hundreds of people have written blog articles about this exact function.
You shoud ask it when call stack recursion is faster than tail call recursion. A quick search doesn't turn up anything, but i remember reading about it on comp.lang.lisp.

How do I actually buy Bitcoin? I'm using Bisq as like the market since apparently it doesn't have all the bullshit and it won't freeze my money, as well as Electrum as my main wallet (of course I don't have anything in it). But there's nowhere for me to pay money into it so I can't actually buy bitcoin and when I try to find out the problem it just tells me ways to get bitcoin to start when all I need is to pay my currency into the machine to get a fraction of a bitcoin to spend, I don't even need it to be super duper anonymous or whatever. It's so frustrating, if you don't know someone who knows this shit it's as obtuse as a rock. I just hope I don't have to go through like robinhood or any of those fuck companies that I have no trust for. Help would be much appreciated.

Okay anon, I'll help you out. Bisq is great but its probably one of the more confusing ways to trade at times due to its privacy. The simplest thing for you to do is to go to any of the big exchanges like Coinbase, Binance or Kraken or whatnot that basically just let you (usually after some small amount of verification) let you use fiat currency - USD, EUR etc. - and just buy crypto, including BTC. Also note the way you pay - bank card, credit card, PayPal etc.. may have different fees. Be wary of this when buying fiat for crypto! Couple of things to keep in mind

DO NOT KEEP YOUR CRYPTO IN THE EXCHANGE"S ACCOUNT PERMANENTLY. This is how people have gotten fucked over. Its okay to keep it there when you're trading or will be, but don't just let it sit in exchanges forever. Its good to keep it in a wallet only YOU control - it doesn't have to be a "full" wallet (aka with a full copy of the blockchain it downloads), it can be a "lite" wallet, so long as you have full control of your keys, account etc.

Next, note that EVERY CRYPTO TRANSMISSION BETWEEN ONE ADDRESS AND ANOTHER RECORDED ON THE BLOCKCHAIN HAS A NETWORK FEE. Some coins will call it something different (ie Etherium call it "gas" ) and when these cryptos started out it was nothing, a tenth of a thousandth of a BTC or whatever. However, as the value of the coins have gone up , proportionally this often gets a little more expensive. Its still not always horrible today and depending on what currency it will vary, but just know that it will cost a small amount of something for the network to process it even if say.. you're sending it from one wallet address you control (or your address at an exchange) to another of "yourself", the "network" fee still needs to be paid. Most clients will tell you this and what the minimum is for "standard" transmission (there's a faster more confirmations thing but don't worry about that) but just keep it in mind.

Anyway, I'll try to help you out. There's a lot of crypto bullshit out there but, if you use it smartly and know what each asset is and can do its not by nature evil or anything. Note that Monero is privacy friendly and one of the better coins (its actually one of the most equitable too updating its algo to keep ASICs from fucking with everyone attempting to mine etc), but isn't held as commonly on major exchanges because of the privacy element. Also be very careful for anything related to "DeFi", "dPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


>but you won't find any clear web crypto exchanges selling it anymore.
Waht? Yes there are, loads even


This was in Reference to XMR/Monero not Bitcoin, as I was suggesting it as a privacy coin that the OP might been interested in. They nuked Monero off the Majority of the Clear web crypto exchanges to where you can't even buy or trade in it from what I have seen.

Well Monero Mining is the one that uses the CPU and the different threads on the CPU, but not worth mining with just one CPU, but I get what you are saying ASICS with Solar Panels or clean energy alternatives will the way to go for Mining Bitcoin.


hell yeah dude

my man's going fin-goth mode


First of all, you should want to avoid bitcoin as it is horrible wen it comes to privacy. Every transaction is public and viewable by everyone, see if you can buy a privacy coin, such as monero instead.

If you want a different way to buy either of them, be it bitcoin or monero, check out localbitcoin and localmonero. You can use many different ways of making transacting with individuals (even cash by mail) and it's even accessible through the darknet.

no because they already have their established process that they need you to fit into like any other cog. so what you buot doesn't matter, what matters is if you can clear their standardized interview, work with their standardized tools, and follow a standardized workflow of accept ticket, tag git branches in your fix, change labels on your PR, clock-in some time so they can gauge your factory worker output of no of tickets per sprint to measure your velocity and plot a graph about how much value you are providing over time.

First twitter and now google. I wonder what's going on.

>You may have thought a Google account was forever, but the company's latest blog post details a new policy of deleting inactive Google accounts. The new deadline is two years—if your account hasn't seen "activity" in that amount of time, Google is going to delete your data forever.

>The company pitches this as a way to prevent spam. The blog post says that "abandoned accounts are at least 10x less likely than active accounts to have 2-step-verification set up," and once they get compromised, they become vectors for spam and identity theft. Deleting old accounts and freeing up storage is also probably a good way to cut costs, which has been a thing at Google lately.

it's like saying all you have to do to build a motorcycle is to also follow the instructions

I mean, it's a notable achievement


>typing ./configure && make && make install is an achievement
The only complicated pieces are kernel and bootloader. You can get by with the debian kernelconfig and the archwiki page about bootloaders should explain everything well enough.


It's cool but I find it very weird how people mythologize GNU/Linux as some dark art that can only be learned by the chosen ones and even they have to study it for decades before becoming comfortable with it.


KDE Spin of Fedora, Kubuntu, or KDE Neon.
Linux mint if you want a stable system.
If you don't like the Windows GUI and you have 0iq then you will like GNOME.
I use OpenSUSE Tumbleweed with KDE btw.

I tried to become a programmer a decade ago when I was in my late teens/early 20s but a large number of factors caused it to not work out. Looking at things like this I'm glad I ended up in some shitty engineering gig even though the money isn't nearly as good.


>but for programming it's gonna give you code that was already written and can be found on the internet, code copied from stackoverflow is gonna work 100% of the time so chatgpt still can't compete.

Okay, but that is already what happens on a large scale tbh


But programmers understand code, if you ask ChatGPT to make firmware for hardware that only exist in prototype it will only give you garbage as ChatGPT has no understand of coding, hardware or even you are asking of it. All GPT knows is statically is the correct response for a give input.
