Is there a 3rd party app, which allows me to "follow" people, without using an account? Or is there a free "Twitter to RSS" converter, so I can receive tweets als RSS feed? I'm unable to find anything! Thanks in advance!

If you're on a desktop, you can use one of the many nitter instances over twitter: https://github.com/zedeus/nitter/wiki/Instances

Nitter is a free, self-hostable frontend for Twitter. I believe it can also generate RSS feeds for accounts so you can follow someone without using any specific apps or anything.

bullshit. openwashing.

 No.4994

AIs have blind spots.

Alpha Go never reached one specific node that Lee forced it to play on fourth game.

OpenAI five was defeated by dragging the game & punishing their gold sharing tactics with stronger core heroes.

Alphastar was defeated by fucking cannon rush on the corner.

libratus had bugs on various turn spots. I think it was pairing turns but can't remember anymore.

deep learning AIs will obviously have upper hand when it comes to time it takes to reach 'expert level of play' but I think humans will be always able to outwit it…unless they actually 'solve' the problem space completely.

but think about how stupid people on social media are. corporations often use marketing (which includes twitter accounts) to incite identity politics and keep the working class separated, and what's worse is that it's considered legal and not corrupt at all.

 No.5005

>>5000
I would say such polarizing marketing is side effect not the main goal of porky AIs trying to get most exposure on social media.

I am sure there would be an interesting way to hijack their bot to our advantage somehow.

Exactly the same thread exists on /g/
https://boards.4chan.org/g/thread/78445807
It reached 300+ replies so there's another one about the topic.
https://boards.4chan.org/g/thread/78454806
Why create an identical thread here, when the same topic is being discussed elsewhere, by more people? We should be discussing things that aren't being discussed on other chans/boards. Besides, discussing consumer stuff and companies is really really boring.

But de-botnetting isn't.

>If you don't care about gaming or only plan on emulating old consoles, an old Nvidia card and the completely FOSS nouveau driver or a CPU with integrated graphics would be better.
I'm interested in emulating, tried with lattepanda and raspi, but it could only handle PS1 games. I'd like to emulate ps2 games, at least. So which used nvidia card would you recommend for the purpose?

>>4944
either buy a cheap optiplex and take 1650 or something in the same range if it's affordable in your country,

Afaik only cpu matters when emulating (except for RPCS3, which can handle multicore too I think), someone correct me if I'm wrong

Unless you want to deal with inefficient intel housefires which only have a bit better single threaded performance but overall are worse you should get a zen 2 ryzen (not zen 1, those are from before amd made the jump to 7nm and are pretty bad compared to zen 2), ideally higher end and used, or one of the newest ryzen

Though this answer is about emulation in general, if you only care about ps2 my shitty ass amd bulldozer housefire can handle it so far

I did an analysis of the official leftypol twitter performance, and wrote a report on it. You can see more information in these two threads:

>>>/gulag/7976

>>>/leftypol/1034489

I was asked by a poster to also share this here, and to specifically ask if anyone here has any ideas how the twitter cropping algorithm works, and can offer any tips/insights.

Thank you in advance.

We all should have known this was coming

This should be an indication that all git repos need to be mirrored *somewhere*

At the moment there are many mirrors on gitlab.com, including https://gitlab.com/pintert3/youtube-dl.git
Last known commit according to IRC is 416da574ec0df3388f652e44f7fe71b1e3a4701f

I realy like this

From reading it i pick up that hes a /g/ person.
But I realy like the idea.
the implementation is a a bit shit.
You need to be running a local ipfs node on 8080 (obviosluy)

anyone got something like this going on?
anyone follow ipfs stuff?

Anon, I have no idea what IPFS is.

/g/ had a good idea for once:
We need a third option to the dichotomy between the fascist commie NIH philosophy of the FSF and the boot-licking brown-nosing philosophy of the OSI.
>OSI: in an ideal world, all software should be libre, but good software is more important than libre software, so when proprietary software is better than libre software, it should be able to cannibalize the libre software to make itself even better
>FSF: libre software is more important than good software, and therefore libre software is ALWAYS better than proprietary alternatives, no matter how many features are missing, and anyone who uses proprietary software should be harassed until they change their mind, and libre software should never promote proprietary software, not even for interoperability

What's the commonality that necessitates this dichotomy?
It's the fact that both the OSI and the FSF respect laws around proprietary software.
>OSI: those laws are kind of unethical, but it's okay if you want to license under them and steal our shit, your work is better after all
>FSF: those laws are unethical, so if you're going to license under them, then the only way to simultaneously avoid breaking them and retain user freedoms is to not use your software or even acknowledge its existence

I present the MAOSS. An idea for a gang of criminal e-thugs who use violence to force proprietary licensors to forfeit their IPs against their will so that users don't have to choose between software that works and software that respects their freedoms.
>oh, you're going to license your work under a proprietary license? *rips terms of service in half*
>*decompiles your work, neuters it of anti-features, and redistributes the libretized version as a component of other freedom-respecting libre work without your permission*
>oh what's that, you're gonna sue us? lol *brings flamethrower to court*
>*casually murders major proprietary software vendors in cold blood and burgles their laptops*

Free software terrorism thank god I wasn't the only one thinking about bricking some corporate servers and giving proprietary vendors free trips to the pit.

This must be incorporated to the agenda of the communist party. The freedom of the working class shall be complete.
