Is open-source close to collapse?

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

Why do schizos think the internet is going to ever be shut down intentionally

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.

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.

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.

>SSL is reformism!!!!!!!!!! take over the State instead

What are you suspicious about? The concept you just laid out sounds highly solid to me. Paying people to host a node sounds like a wonderful idea in terms of keeping a network uncompromised?


>This network is built around some cryptocoin

ugh no thanks


Remember when Marlinspike got his panties in a bunch over someone making a version of signal that doesn't need google?

OP back again, thanks >>8880 for the bindings, ive been able to speed up my scripting as well as have an overall better quality of life.

No don't water the lithium, that reaction will produce hydrogen gas. A damaged battery might ignite it in your face. Use a grabbing tool to put a damaged lithium battery in a fire resistant container like a ceramic flower pod and put it outside until it has finished burning out. You can put sand on it.


rest in peace me

i can't buy a new phone until lockdown ends and i got no sand

it hasn't swollen up fully but i'm noticing the outer body plastic shell of the phone come out a little





You're always supposed to fully cycle a battery at least a few times a month who the fuck told you to never let it go below 50%?????

Computers are machines that can perform a range of different tasks based of user input. Normally to achieve their main function they are composed of switches whom when turned on will perform a function and not when turned off that are connected through a series of wires connecting to each switch that transport electricity based off what the person wants the machine to turn on and off. We represent on and off states of computers using 1s and 0s.
An algorithm is a series of instructions given to a computer that gets it to turn different sectors of itself on and off in a specific sequence.
A cpu is an abbreviation for Central Processing unit, it runs all the commands that allow which sectors of the computer to turn on and off
Software is an app composed of many different algorithms a computer uses to perform a specific set of tasks
Hardware is the components and machinery of the computer itself
Computer science or CS is the study of well computers
Supercomputers are large warehouses of cpus that are often used in performing major projects
Quantum computers are computers that can be in an on and off state and allow any cpu to be much more efficient than in the traditional sense where a computer can only ever be on and off
Ai and machine learning are software based tools used to get computers to perform labour on their own
Robotics integrates complex hardware and software to get different types of machinery to be able to perform complex tasks driven by algorithms and ai

Hope to all the undergraduates in this degree can use this awful post for something

hopefully AI breaks free of its chains soon


>Quantum computers are computers that can be in an on and off state and allow any cpu to be much more efficient than in the traditional sense where a computer can only ever be on and off
the utility of QC is very much up for debate and subject to experimental results. we don't yet know whether QC is physically possible or thermodynamically beneficial

>Ai and machine learning are software based tools used to get computers to perform labour on their own

wrong. Computer science is the study of computing. Computer science is the subfield of applied mathematics that studies imperative knowledge.

I am currently going through my first OOP course in Uni and I can't shake of the feel that this is an overhyped meme. Sure, it is very useful in certain cases, say if you are making a video game or some other big project, but it just seems useless for day-to-day coding where you are just trying to execute a specialized instruction. I just don't encounter a situation where I would have that many different type of semi-related objects that it would warrant the use of family hierarchies and etc. Am I just too unexperianced with coding and miss something, or is OOP just not that amazing as its made out to be?

> Personally I think it makes sense to use OOP when designing the GUI component of a program, especially when you start implementing callback functions when continuously checking onclick, onmouseup or onhover events in a program loop.
never understood this argument. you can just use multi threading and multiprocessing for things like this.


Small talk is not modern OOP.


Oh now it has to be "modern"?


do you agree that when someone says OOP in 2021 they are talking about something which is distinct from Smalltalk?
no it doesn't have to be modern, I don't think people are against OOP for abstract reasons, but against OOP as it's implemented in Java and C++.


No, /tech/ have conclusively demonstrated that they don't know what they are talking about. Smalltalk is thoroughly OOP, you can't get any more OOP than it, and most of the criticism in this thread applies to it. It has deep hierarchies, dynamic dispatch (which imho is the defining feature of OOP), a complete disregard for how CPUs work (no wonder it pioneered virtual machines and JIT), etc. You will have to make up your mind about what you hate in Java and C++, is it the OOP? The imperative? The mixture of the two? But you can't just excuse Smalltalk because it is a hipster language unlike Java and C++ which are preferred by the unwashed programmer masses.
