Mirowaves have a metal mesh to bounce the microwaves it is broadcasting back into the cavity. Thus not really a Faraday cage, a better example would be RF shields that are just sheets of metal that are grounded that act like an antenna that sends all that RF to the ground pin.

>It lowers the entry barrier to whatever creative endeavor the artist wants to engage in
In general it doesn't, though. It cannot be demonstrated that if everyone who had a phone was using a computer just as often, you wouldn't get just as much new media. At the very best, it's neutral and transfers the barrier of entry from one set of tasks to another - You say "whatever creative endeavour", but all you've got is music and video, and I'll grant photography too - that leaves out writing, it leaves out programing, it leaves out web design, it leaves out image editing, it leaves out essentially anything that's hobbled by a small screen, a lack of a mouse, and a lack of a keyboard. (One might say "ah, but phones are intuitively easier to use" but I'd dispute that too. It's downstream of an elitist tendency to imagine that most people can't use a computer properly, one which is demonstrably wrong. If literal boomers and Chris Chan can throw up HTML webpages, anyone can do it.)

The only thing it can be said that phones have genuinely made more accessible is photography, by ensuring people have a camera with them at all times. and I might quip that even that's a mixed blessing since it means we're mostly getting portrait photographs Everything else is a case of going "well everyone has a fork, but not everyone has a pen, so the fork is a perfectly good tool for writing with." while carefully setting aside that this hypothetical world is run by a monopoly of pasta salesmen who've got incentives to get you to (a) eat their pasta and (b) not pen them bad reviews.

Put another way: You can't be mad at lowered barriers to entry, I'm mad because they've thrown up an infinity of transparent barriers to entry which you invariably sound slightly mad while trying to explain. You might celebrate a few songs we're getting, I'm going to lament the infinite number of furry RPGmaker games, anime fan homepages, and overwrought free-on-kindle novels we're missing out on. Not the lack of image edits or long /leftypol/ posts though, I can't stand competition.

In short, yes.

Engineers are already the most right leaning of the highly educated group, it would be amazing to have the same sort of content as Luke's put out for years that didn't lead into tradchrist-memery. I remember when I first started my degree I found his videos by looking up vim and latex stuff.
Given certain search terms his videos are top 5 of the results, sometimes even the first one.
The big issue is how would you capture the same energy as his videos, since the style is copied often and very easy to point out. Just doing good enough tutorials with some of the channel videos being political content would maybe work but normies might be scared away by being too radical out of the gate. Perhaps the best way would be, like Luke, grow first then reveal the actual power level.

Bonus for those who remember the short lived forum, I remember there being a poll for ideologies and commies being at 30-40 % back then. So something about his older content before all the overt christposting resonated with all sides.

>Google is recommending that the US government devote more resources to securing open-source software in light of the Apache Log4J 2 vulnerability, which has affected countless business applications and servers.


>On Thursday, Google and other tech companies, including Apple and Amazon, attended a White House briefing about securing open-source software. The meeting was called to help the US avoid a repeat of the Log4J vulnerability, which can make hacking an affected software program trivial for a malicious computer hacker.


>One reason the vulnerability is so bad is because the open-source Log4J 2 utility is used across the IT industry as a freely available tool. However, the same vital software is maintained merely through volunteers from the nonprofit Apache Software Foundation.


>According to Google, the lack of maintenance and IT support surrounding open-source projects leaves the US vulnerable to exploitation.


>“For too long, the software community has taken comfort in the assumption that open-source software is generally secure due to its transparency and the assumption that ‘many eyes’ were watching to detect and resolve problems,” Google’s Chief Legal Officer Kent Walker wrote in a blog post. “But in fact, while some projects do have many eyes on them, others have few or none at all,” he added.

Open source was created by venture capitalists at the turn of the millennium because they were pissed off at the initial triumphs of free software in the 1990s (beginning w/ the adoption of the Linux kernel). They were allowed to do this, because free software principally relies on bourgeois copyright law as the bulwark for its continued existence. As it turns out, creating alternative networks parallel to capitalist production (comprised entirely of unpaid contributors) wasn't quite as revolutionary as those classic /g/ memes made it seem.

Functional programming was a craze.

I've learned scheme and common lisp and scala and haskell in classes at uni/grad school and although in the 2010s the functional programming craze was huge eventually it died out and people just decided that low level languages like go and rust were better and that even java could be good if you add lambdas and first class functions/function objects to it. I was a full on FP cultist from 2010 to like 1-2 years ago.

After writing actual functioning apps in functional languages I've concluded that old fashioned OOP/java and now low level multi paradigm languages like go are probably better than the languages like clojure or haskell which force functional style and take up huge amounts of memory due to immutable data structures, despite the compiler writers best efforts. The concurrency benefits can simply be gotten by adding a few functional features to mainstream languages which they have already done, for example, C# and Java. Although C# does it way better imo.

I see literally no reason to write an app in haskell, clojure, scala, etc. over basic Java/C# or rust/golang

>It should be common knowledge that OpenBSD uses it.
I have an OpenBSD system right next to me and it uses both gcc 4.2.1 and LLVM/Clang. I was there at one point and tried to bootstrap a source-based distro with tcc and ran up against countless gcc-isms. These are not accidental but an integral part of its practical use. Clang has the benefit of mostly being gcc compatible.
>Maybe take a step back and remember what is the point you are trying to make.
>>10944 said functional languages and by extension language concepts above a certain level were "forced to be extremely complex to get semi-decent performance". Lisp has been the object of optimizations for a long time and it shows the freedom high-level concepts allow for implementation, hence some not using cons cells at all. In contrast, C has both unnecessarily rigid definitions (storage directives, implicit type casts, padding, function) and leaky abstractions an optimizer might trip over (see the use of volatile). And while large parts of C may map onto most instruction sets, it was not designed with concurrency in mind.
I know comparing the size of the source is inaccurate. Can you come up with a better comparison on code complexity?

Libreboot with "insert le epic super duper hard linux distro here" may be going a bit far in terms of baseline (speaking as a libreboot user), but the overall point is valid because all modern computers have hardware vulnerabilities in the IME and starting to switch over to linux generally is valid (but you don't need to use, literally mint or ubuntu is fine to start and then work your way up to a more hardened system, whoonix, tails, trisquel, whatever.).
