Some breakthroughs have led me to finally and definitively abandon microshit's spyware.
I had been staying on wangblows for the audio software but had no idea Linux production had come so far.

My DAW [Renoise] has a fucking excellent native linux version that exceeds WIndows performance in some cases. Grabbing audio to feed into its sampler is easier than ever with youtube-dl and ffmpeg.
yabridge lets you convert Windows VSTs to run through Wine, the ones I've tried have worked seamlessly albeit with a little overhead.
Takes a tiny bit of elbow grease to get it optimized enough for serious use, but it's pretty simple once you get past initial setup and it even supports VST3.

Feels pretty good to be making music on a system I have so much control over, it's actually given me a lot of inspiration to work on new material.
Are you a composer or producer who runs Linux? What's your workflow/software?

There are a bunch of linux youtubers that produce their videos on Linux, they probably have tutorials on how they do that, and if you copy what they do and use the same or similar hardware as they do, it probably will work on first try.

>>12340
I think his comment of freedom is wrong, in Linux you really can add any functionality you want, while in windows you just can't. What Microsoft does is lay down a path where a lot of the time "id just worgs" but anybody who wants to go into another direction has to fight with technology on a level that is far worse than anything on the Linux side. There are people on windows that again have to fight with technology just to configure what their default browser is, that is a good indicator that Microsoft is trying to make their path narrower. If the audio stack on Linux sucks then that is cause for constructive criticism, not for tooting the corporate horn.

Hello lads, I'm looking to start a conversation on a topic that's been popping up alot recently, and will likely develop further as the technology gains more adoption. As I'm sure you know, robotic dogs from the likes of Boston Dynamics are being rolled out at police departments and military bureaus across the US, and I'd bet we see widescale adoption as the technology is fleshed out further.
So as a result, I'd like to start a conversation on the best feasible means, both expensive and DIY, to deal with these fuckers. With the advent of home-based 3D printing, easily accessible lasers, and other modern user tech, I believe there are a number of options available to us.
In the resistance against drones being used by the police in Chile, Argentina and now in Portland, lasers were used to incapacitate drone dogs during protests. However, this incapacitation *only* makes these dogs unusable at that single protest; any police department will simply repair their $75k digidog and send it back at the next protest. So, what I'm interested in is ways to make them *inoperable* for extended periods of time, whether physically or electronically. I was bouncing around the idea of somehow using very strong magnets to damage the internal electronics, but this may be unfeasible due to the size of magnet that would be needed. Other options that seem viable would be permanently damaging the optics being used by the dogs, but I'm not sure on the best option for this. As such, I'd like to open this to conversation. I'll be posting this thread here, as well as on a few other imageboards that may be interested and able to help in this discussion.

It doesn't look like you're that familiar with machine learning. The model is constantly updating as the system gathers information and encounters new situations. So even if you find a way to avoid being recognized as a target today, it might correct itself tomorrow. Don't stake your life on unpredictable machine learning models.

 No.14397

>>14393
Usually the embedded device doesn't update the model itself since the automaton lacks the processing power to do and that data is fed into a data centre and update rolled out through a server. So it would be possible to test to see if you are camouflaged by observing how a robot reacts when not aggressive (I.E will walk right into you as it doesn't see you as a solid object till it detects it physically ran into something) then it should be that way before a update roll-out.

That's not a valid argument… at all.

Some of these suggestions are good advice (and even some may be strategically helpful in countering the mainstream narratives we seek to denounce, even possibly useful for orgs or hactivist groups to abuse), others are absolutely malicious and dystopic. Others are just stupid.

>Make more noise than the disinformation

I secretly wonder if the Obama prism meme was a way to bury PRISM a little bit, or merely a coincidence.

Second part, to get jobs requires knowledge of algorithms/data structures and system design. Here's a few books on that. Once you understand DS/A generically try reading and grinding the problems in EPI, as well as websites like leetcode and hackerrank. Both books here are java based. Also learn DESIGN PATTERNS which will come up in job interviews as well (book for that as well).

 No.14365

With regards to system design, what the industry refers to as "system design" is really a combination of software architecture, cloud architecture/systems deployment. usually system design questions are asked more of mid and senior engineers than juniors but there still might be some questions of junior devs. This link is pretty good for self studying:
https://github.com/donnemartin/system-design-primer

that should probably be good enough for a junior developer. There are way more questions that could be asked down the line about concurrency, plus more advanced architecture/system design shit, but you probably won't encounter it.

I'd suggest learning SPRING BOOT and writing a server side app of your choosing to start. Maybe make it part of a dev portfolio or something. IF you get a chance to choose a tech stack for a school project try Spring Boot that way you're forced to learn it to make the project. It's relatively easy so don't worry.

SpeakUp: Silent Speech Interface; Low Cost; Arduino; Machine Learning

Project Summary by Varun Chandrashekhar: “I have designed and developed a speech interfaced for the paralyzed, which they can use to communicate without speaking. This device detects speech-related electrical signals from the throat and converts them into letters or words that we recognize using machine learning models.”

SpeakUp – ML Based Speech Aid to Enable Silent Communication
https://create.arduino.cc/projecthub/Varun_Chandrashekhar/speakup-ml-based-speech-aid-to-enable-silent-communication-ffd9f8

My comment about the project: easily replicable by anyone with computer science knowledge, different from what is being done with the silicon trojans in the 3G/4G/5G equipment only on it needing physical probes. Anyone doing research on this area be cautious of sabotage when using US designed CPUs (AMD/INTEL/QUALCOMM/APPLE/ARM), as the microcode, SMM and firmware of your system may be manipulated to mess up your computations. Ask your own Nation to stop trusting Silicon Valley and make your own silicon supply chain and tech services. Meanwhile, mitigate this situation by moving to an area away from any cell radio transmitter (check coverage on OpenCellID.org) and shielding yourself and your devices from electromagnetic eavesdropping and interference.

help.

let me start by explaining my project here. i'm scraping together video and other documentary evidence of the ethnic cleansing being carried out by the ukranian fascists, going back to maidan until today. someone on here has a 96gb file dump they are sorting now.

i worry because this information is already being systematically scrubbed from the internet and so i want to preserve it. what i would like to do is perhaps have a site where this information could be sorted, searched and perhaps even given brief descriptions. even better if it could have submit feature where people could drop off more stuff.

i also want to do some other writing/intelligence work on there.

the problem:

i have literally no idea how to do this. i do not know how to make a website. i do not know what sort of hosting i would want, or what to do once i get it. i am babby. i am dumb.

please help me nerds. i think its incredibly important for this information to be preserved. we have to do something.

If you can do stuff in the background while you organize a secure server, I recommend uploading the videos to archive.org. Use the noindex true metadata option if you don't want them searchable on the site or listed on search engines (direct link or correctly guessing the URL only).
>there's literally hundreds of gigs
Not an issue.

The post you replied to above is right. An interesting alternative option is self-hosting a PeerTube instance and uploading the videos to it, so that they have searchable descriptions, can be searched via other PeerTube instances that federate with yours, and that people can (theoretically, but let's be honest, they probably won't unless you ask them to) seed the videos as torrents. Torrents are a Peer-To-Peer file sharing system that is used by many groups, but a major one being online piracy groups, because as long as one downloader is still seeding the file, it doesn't matter if the original site/uploader goes offline.

i could help some if you want, but i'm a n00b, just have nothing else to do and already host some basic nginx servers and things.

Also i'd recommend to watch out and curate your shit - first of all, for people wanting to upload sketchy shit you know, that would have it taken down and maybe have you prosecuted, and then also because there's also disinformation which either is just russian, or is masquerading as russian opinion while being stupid. Like shit about the chemical stain on the faces, originally said to be ethnically targeted and calling russians orcs, is shown later with more evidence to be a torture for looters, rather than green paint. Or the shit with the citizens killed in bucha, two anti-ukriane narratives - they faked it, the hands moved, guy sits up in rearview mirror - and that the ukrainian military rolled up a bunch of pro-russian ukrainians (white armband).

I know this is a little besides your goal, since it's to do with the russian invasion instead, but you get the idea.

I've had this issue when I have too many tabs for this site open. I suspect, but haven't checked, that leftypol runs some kind of service worker or something that just falls apart when running for a long time with too many tabs open. I used to have a similar issue with running regular Twitter and browsing through too much, it would just crash after a while and start working again.

I'm also running windows and also suspect it doesn't deal with it well either. I'm switching to linux soon and should be able to compare then.

If this is the case, then the solution to this would just be to close all your leftypol tabs and opening the site again should work fine.
