>There are legit gripes to have with SystemD
Do you know how horrible it feels to crash init by making a syntax error in a power management option?

Who even needs to browse their filesystem?
If you cannot remember your directory structure, you should do a serious reorganization or cd moar.
When I extract an archive or download a torrent, I always write a script to sanitize the names (i.e. alphanumerics separated by underscores).


systemd has no quality control and is overextended, but a rewrite with the fat cut off might be very good


What is there in SystemD, that makes it redeemable?
There is no need to go back to SysVInit, now that we have minimal init systems like s6, runit and sinit.


there are good projects out there
forget the birds eye view, and see the diverse ecosystem right in front of you. Pick what you like, and dont use the stuff you dont like. More normies are using linux than ever. This is good and bad. But as long as there's still a spectrum from more user friendly but shittier, to less user friendly (not necessarily but from windows user perspective) and more free, then it's fine. If the windows-impersonater side is getting bigger, just move people who use this stuff to better projects. Shoutout to Void, for using runit and being all around super minimalist and easy to use and great.


I wish I understood what youre all talking about :(

You guys are aware that everybody connects you to idpol transhumanists, liberals LARPing as AntiFa and cuckold fetishists, and that this is hurting your cause?
I lurked this website for a month now and i noticed a fundamental difference between the posters who are here to actually talk to others and the posters who link to 4chan to ask for support in some ridiculous bait thread where you just waste time.

I also noticed that you have a thread talking about if an imageboard would be better as a single-page-application.
I am currently working on my own imageboard from scratch. I am actually a web-developer and know my stuff, so (i hope) it won't be just another 4chan rip-off. I am going to use node - react - redux - sequelize for mysql - redis.
I am visiting different boards to gather ideas, but i see the same sorry state everywhere. I seriously want to make something good.

>Facebook also uses long-polling.
>Twitter… never checked it, because its a shit platform that offers nothing goodM

<Facebook good! Birdapp bad!




I wrote one in vanilla PHP with MySQL. It isn't especially extensible, however.


Please be bait lol


it's also so that people get drip-fed dopamine and keep coming back for more. If you gave them everything at once, they'd take a second to look, see everything, and leave.
If you make them scroll up and make it so that they never really are in control of what they see, they stay on your service longer because they have an incentive to keep pushing the stupid button to get a treat

Why do schizos think the internet is going to ever be shut down intentionally
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.




i just looked up the statistic with the numbers, i don't know why they cut it, what >>8503 said sounds plausible.


It's not schizo at all.
* BGP vulns and IP take overs
* power grid
* supply chain attacks
* DRM :)
A state backed multi stage attack could seriously harm infrastructures and i would bet money that such an operation has already been outlined or is ready to go.


Schizos don't understand technology. The amount of schizos who have a brain hemorrhage when they see contrails in the sky and spaz out about "chemtrails" is a testament to that. Of course, many wrong and incorrect statements have sometimes a kernel of truth. While it is not the case that the entire internet cannot be shut down, government have compelled ISPs in their own countries to shut off internet access. This happened in Egypt, for example, way back in the Arab Spring. Governments more often than this, however, compel ISPs to block sites instead, and they accomplish this in a way that would usually require a VPN to circumvent. Pakistan, Turkey, and China are notorious for this.


>Schizos don't understand technology. The amount of schizos who have a brain hemorrhage when they see contrails in the sky and spaz out about "chemtrails" is a testament to that.
Forgot to mention that there was a real-life test conducted by the military where they basically crop dusted some people. It is highly impractical. It would certainly be implausible that passenger airliners would be doing it, as the schizo chemtrail dipshits think, because where the hell would you hide the chemical tanks? Pilots and crew would have to be in on it because they have to account for weight on the plane. Many of these commercial planes have over 100 people servicing them. That is simply too many people to keep quiet.

how do you make a “Cybernetic culture research unit” that doesn’t even know how to use SSL?
what’s with this phenomena of lit majors larping as tech bros?

Fisher goes too far in some regards, but his critique is great anyways.


>None of those things are my problem. If people don't want to see my site with random trash inserted into it, they can choose not to access it through broken and/or compromised networks.
They can't choose and they are broken and compromised.
> But that's not really the point here: this is all just handwaving away the earlier whining about how governments and ISPs are molesting HTTP traffic. If your government is actively hostile to your communications, overthrow it. If you think J. Random User is going to give a single shit (or even notice) when the telco provider ships a phone update that adds trust to MITM certs, you're completely delusional.
<le just overthrow your government


>SSL is reformism!!!!!!!!!! take over the State instead
I admire his attitude.


> consoomerist larpers
they’re accelerationists, you think they’re going to worship artwork made through baroque primitive means? go to the Frankfurt School if you want whining about “muh consoomerism”

< Babel is used by millions, so why are we running out of money?
> This doesn’t surprise me. The purpose of the web software industry is to extract value out of Open-Source Software (OSS). Everything is built under the misconception that OSS is abundant, replaceable, and free.
> People don’t appreciate just how much web dev is about extracting value from OSS, both on individual and corporate levels.
> [..]
> Web development? Everything is built or run directly on OSS.
> Almost everything we do in web development exists as a thin layer over open-source software.
> Servers, build tools, databases, ORMs, auth, client-side JS, web browser: we are all building on a vast ocean of OSS labour without paying back a fraction of the value we generate. It isn’t just big, direct dependencies like Babel that are suffering. The stuff your stuff is using—the infrastructure code everything needs—is surviving on sheer inertia as well.
> That’s value extraction. Strip-mining if you want to hammer home the unsustainability. Looting if you want to emphasise the moral dimension.
Is open-source close to collapse?


>corporations… but "open" source"!


Yeah, MIT licensed projects are basically working for Apple but for free

Reminder that the “upside-down” from Stranger Things is literally real in a completely non-metaphoric way. Neoliberal central planning is gathering data on you to create a blurry mirror-image of you that they can use to predict your interests and tastes. You know how everyone has a story about how they were talking about something one day only to see ads about it later? The typical explanation is that your microphone picks up on things you say and recommends things based on the conversation, but this is wrong. There is simply a mirror-image of you that heuristically knows your dreams and desires before you even realize them or know they exist. A blurry version of you exists in a parallel universe, snitching on you and plotting on you for a hive mind of aliens.

Tech nerds will not comprise the entirety of the revolution. We know this. It's going to include a lot of normies, who can't exactly communicate and coordinate everything through text messaging. As we also know, we live in a world of mass surveillance. We have to give normies options for communicating that can protect themselves from the corporate surveillance state. This thread is for evaluating those options. I am currently looking at phone conferencing options and can't make up my mind on these:
-some Matrix protocol tool
-some XMPP protocol tool

What I really want is something supporting phone call-ins, for stupid old people who cannot into computers. Phone OS support may also be important. Some options are more suited to these things than others. Maybe even better ones than I've listed. Discuss, please.

RMS changed his mind 2 years ago
>14 September 2019 (Sex between an adult and a child is wrong)
>Many years ago I posted that I could not see anything wrong about sex between an adult and a child, if the child accepted it.
>Through personal conversations in recent years, I've learned to understand how sex with a child can harm per psychologically. This changed my mind about the matter: I think adults should not do that. I am grateful for the conversations that enabled me to understand why.
he even used the special pronoun.

I guess it is possible to learn old nerds new tricks. between this and linus learning that other people do in fact exist, perhaps we will see some actual adults in the free software space
