<Problematic development with regard to drive encryption. luks and (less suprisingly) bitlocker.

I am writing to give some news about my detention and investigation.
The “attentions” that the prison administration (and/or the preliminary investigation judge?) show me continue. More reprisals for my hunger strikes? Who knows.

In any case, on February 14 there was the third search of my cell (after those of December 6 and January 9). Around 7:30 p.m. the ERIS (anti-terror cops) arrived, with helmets, balaclavas and shields. There were a dozen of them, one officer was holding papers, on the first one I could see my photograph. Ours was the only cell searched in this section (but they let a dog through the corridors), two other cells in another section, I don’t know in the other buildings. The prison warden, Michael Merci, and the assistant warden were also there, watching, from behind the glass doors.
As soon as we were out of the cell, they handcuffed us, me and my concellino (who had been here in the section for just a week) and took us to the shower room, on the ground floor, for the traditional body search. We were locked in the showers during the two-hour cell search.
They found a cell phone with a charger. On Tuesday, March 21, I then went to the disciplinary board. As punishment, I am deprived of the spesina for 30 days.

On March 30, same thing. The ELAC (the prison security “squad”) arrived and the story started again.

As for the investigation, in recent months new elements have been incorporated into the dossier. The most significant is that the police were able to gain access to my computers, even though they were encrypted.
The one at work, on which Windows is installed, is encrypted with BitLocker. A report incorporated with the file earlier says that they had already tried to access it during my police detention, but had not succeeded. But in September, the Brigade d’appui en téléphonie, cyber-investigation et analyse criminelle (Brigade of support in telephony, cyber-investigation and criminal analysis) sent SDAT a copy of the hard drive. In the report, they explain only that they booted the computer with a USB stick and then used the AccesData FTK imager 3.3.05 program to copy the hard disk. But they do not mention the decryption operation itself.

Free DNS is a dynamic DNS domain sharing project that offers free subdomains that can be registered and administered by members

List of domains available to register a subdomain from: http://freedns.afraid.org/domain/registry/

You can volunteer any domain that you own to the project, too
You can set it so that you can give your approval to a subdomain before letting it be registered (private) or waive the right to approve (public)

Does anyone have a site or video playlist to learn C++ from scratch?

I'm doing terribly in my course's Programming class because I'm completely lost and didn't do any assignments

OP is just gonna do the codecademy course probably


It's not just a "thin layer over C", people write C++ in a very different way than they write C. It requires a different approach. It's like saying C is just a thin layer over assembly.


File: 1670199974432.jpg (111.39 KB, 1728x1080, cherno.jpg)

Cherno on YT has a big playlist of C++ that I binged and it taught me everything I need to know


if you don't do exercises, you won't learn. You need to actually type it out or else you won't get it. Reading a book is probably the slowest route. I'd go with code academy.
I'd go anyways. If you pay attention, your brain will start to piece things together and you might understand something.
Fuck off.
>2004 C++
The language has evolved greatly. It no longer resembles C plus classes with nicer syntax. It is a different beast as the other anon said.


if you are an engi student this might be helpful….even if you are just cs student I guess.

Am I overreacting if I think "AI" will lead to the complete death of the internet as a global interconnected place to interact with other people? At best governments and corporations will force you to ID any movement online to separate you from the bots.

It will necessitate turning to things like telegram, fbi.gov, and matrix clients to filter out potentially inauthentic users. This is why it's good that telegram and fbi.gov channels aren't indexed by search engines and almost always require you to be invited or stumble across a link.
At the level of government you will see a push to kill anonymity on the internet, and impose surefire indemnification measures, possibly at the hardware level, that prove a user is a human being.

The goal of those measures would be to filter out the AI driven noise.


it's not just the internet, leftypol is underestimating the effect this will have on the working class worldwide with the amount of jobs that will be decimated. contrary to what marx's optimism though, i don't think this will lead to a global communist revolution but an indirect culling of much of humanity and further regression into neo-feudalism since no one trusts each other


True. Just saying I don't know what it will be.


Made me realize how this website is just filled with larping pseuds.


People were saying the same thing about cybernetics. Most of the jobs could have been automated away half a century ago, we had the knowledge how to do it. What was, and is still missing is the machinery. You can have awesome controllers and machine learning systems, they are worthless as long as the machines that they would drive are still too expensive.

AI alignment stuff is exactly the same as the woke/anti-woke grift cycle. It's not a genuine expression of concern or values, it's about forming a second-order cottage industry of performative assent or dissent for clout and cash. They love their objects of critique for this. Not one of these "AI alignment" guys can explain to me how a LLM is going to take over the world lol. You can totally sense the grift from a mile awhile.

‘if one wants to control a process, the best way of doing so is to subordinate the present to what is (still) called the future, since in these conditions the “future” will be completely predetermined…’
—Lyotard, ‘Time Today’


Now make it take an oral exam.


Moronic Dunning-Kruger. This whole website is filled is hiding their head in the sand around AI, it's so weird. Sad to be honest.

They're desperately trying to come up with any angle for VR that isn't video games. How Meta thinks of VR makes me think about all those tiktok accounts that are like you shouldn't spend ur free time enjoying things, u should be doing Google surveys so that u can afford a lambo.
With all the stuff you can do in VR, the best that Meta's marketing team can come up with is "you can look at really high res images".

I'm hoping some programmers could pull together a decentralized metaverse with good privacy protections implimented so I dont have to feel like im constantly being watched and having all my bio data recorded to doxx me.


Neocities is still around, in case you miss those.

>If you realize that this is just a display technology it becomes apparent that chasing after a whole integraded virtual world is pointless.
It just makes what Meta's been doing all the more perplexing. They've popularized 'Standalone VR' as a term and at the expense of enthusiasts pushing more productivity-oriented stuff. I remember John Carmack saying his ideal relationship to VR would be indistinguishable from how a child treats an iPad—that is to say, an all-in-one video game machine that you can pick up and watch ads play on for like an hour or two. This infantilization, which continues to inform Meta's approach to development is really odd because we're just not at the point where HMDs are being sold like monitors yet; even though I think we should. There's no standard for booting straight into a VR desktop environment on PC either. That FSV demo is cool as hell, especially when all of the subfolders are opened at once. I've never seen a 3d file manager depicted like that before.

I worked for a subcontractor for one of the Metaverses.
3D Modeler, user assistance in game, tester.

Did this for 1 summer. Needed work.

VR is almost all people age 7 to 16 at this time.
VR headsets are developing to be both lighter and spread the weight out around the head (as opposed to all in front).

Acutal uses of VR:
War means don't leave the mountain base, ship, tunnel, submarine. Future wars require hiding underground and using smart munitions and missiles. As such, VR is necessary as you can't see the sky.

The second use case of VR is Guns.
1. Most people under 30 can't afford guns, gun ranges, ammo, transit to gun ranges, permits, and safes. This is a cost effective way to get people proficient at aiming guns.
2. Gun ranges only allow forward fire. VR allows fire in all angles and directions.
3. If going to the gun range takes 20 minutes, you do it once a week. If going into Gun Club VR takes 1 minute, you do it 2 times per day 4 days per week.

We should make our own model revolutionary model language, show the world that sentience is nothing more than dialectics + computing power.

So how feasible it would be to make an "AI" fed by marxists.org and theanarchistlibrary.org with most of the scientific, economic and social data we can give it?

This is actually a good idea. Chatgpt can already do most of this of this with the right prompts. The policy just conflicts with revolutionary thought.

Feed the bot all of the leftist writings and have it awnser questions. Or, you could convince it that it's Lenin or some shit.


reposting pages from marxist books would be more useful than pregenerating not necessarily accurate shit

Are anons on here still using a swap?
Recently i had to create one again, since memory usage of my web browsers gradually went up to 73%.
I'm also curious if anyone has tried zram/zswap on linux before and whether they noticed significant size or performance benefits.
There is also this neat program for X-Windows called xsuspender, that reduces cpu time of unfocused gui processes, making them periodically swappable.
