it's not dying
honestly i might invest in it this time around, it seems to me as if as long as you don't get greedy you may be able to make your savings grow a little
i live in a shithole (nonsocialist country) where inflation will eat all my money unless i invest it into something so im thinkin about going full ancap mode and becoming a bitcoiner

Anyone want to make.. something? I'm not sure what, my imagination has been neutered from too much wageslaving. I'm a pretty skilled web developer, would be nice to create something that isn't useless or serves capital.
If this sounds interesting throw out an idea!

Hello there, /tech/ comrades.

I am passing by to let you know that a Matrix chat for /tech/ talk has been created! The chat has been added to the official leftypol community. This chat is meant to serve as a place to talk tech and programming in general.

Come join us! The link is: https://matrix.to/#/#leftylambda:matrix.org?via=matrix.org

This chat will also be hosting an SICP /read/ing group. That is, we will be studying the book "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" and helping each other solve the exercises. For those unaware, SICP used to be the introductory textbook for Computer Science classes at MIT back in the day, and remains a cult classic to this day. It can be used as a general introduction to programming, but will also be rewarding for those more experienced.gentooGentoo

How to block everything coming after ##[href="/manga/genre/*/*"]

The stars don't work. Website is MAL if anyone curious. I tried reading through the list. And I can't get "n" "<" ">" or "*" to work. I'm trying to block all the genres, rather than doing it one by one.

CSS doesn't have regex, you're gonna have to use partial matching for that.

Are there actually any real world problems that can be solved by software and wouldn't make the world a worse place?

The more I think about it the less useful programming seems.

A more labor intensive process does not mean high quality. Even for 2D animation with computers you have the huge advantage of being able to correct animation errors. Also shitty cell animation exists.

>>just turn off JavaScript and nobody will be able to fingerprint you based on extensions
>ah so you dont even know what issue im actually talking about, thanks mozillatard

what the fuck are you talking about? if javascript is turned off, the only data that the server should see is in the requests that you make to it by clicking links or form buttons (which can include some identify information in the headers like your ip address, browser, operating system, and a unique id generated by the server and sent to the browser in a prior header… but i've never heard of plugins being listed there).

Purely anecdotal but I feel like since I went from many reading text on many screens at different distances - tablets, big screen 6ft away, desk at 3 feet away - to almost exclusively reading text at a desk, I've noticed it's become much more difficult to focus on text at less than 2 feet away. I've started increasing the default text size on tablets.

Considering clamping an extension to the desk so that the monitor can be further away, and going back to computing with different screens at different distances. Obviously being outdoors and focusing on things at different distances will help with this too.

A girl saw me using my T60(1) and started laughing at me.

She said "Wow, how old is that laptop? That thing looks ancient!" and when I answered honestly (14 years, the T60/61 came out in May 2007) she snickered at me and said "can't you afford a nice macbook? That's so sad, nobody should have to use a laptop that old! That's older than my little brother!".

A girl saw me using my T60(1) and started laughing gently.

She said "Wow, how old is that laptop? That thing looks ancient!" and when I answered honestly (14 years, the T60/61 came out in May 2007) she looked amazed at me and said "so old and it is still running? That's so cool, nobody should have to buy a new laptop every 2years! That's older than my little brother!".

And then we fucked
