Biometrics are not practical, if somebody steals a keycard, you replace the keycard, if somebody steals your palm-print, you can't chop off your hand and grow a new one with a different palm print. Does capitalism have a anti-tool bias ? Fast-food does away with cutlery, smartphones do away with input devices like pens or keyboards, bio-metrics do away with keys. Is it really so bad if you need a helper tool for using an object ? I get doing away with hazardous cans that need a can-opener, but keys ?

Boomer family left me hundreds of blank floppies. (You know how Boomers love to collect things they don't use, which invariably become obsolete and become e-waste; they left thousands of blank CDs, DVDs, a zip-drive and about 6 old laptops and a few ancient desktops too. Because they refused to give anything away when they upgraded their stuff.)

Any ideas for what I can do with the floppies?

>Floppies
Those are not good for backup, and the typical storage amount isn't much for today's applications anyways.
>CDs, DVDs
These could be decent media for backup, but it depends. Sometimes the data layer can be degraded, if it isn't stored properly or utilizing materials that last long.

Anybody using this to post here? I'm fucking scared because until recently this project was looking over. No updates or anything then randomly out of nowhere got update notification and against my best judgement updated the app. It's got a new look and options now.

But then got several more updates over the next few weeks. Almost one everyday.

I don't know where to check or see why there are these updates coming from out of the blue. Bros please tell me theres not some hidden malware happening behind the scenes of this new UI changes

I have recently started my first course in Software Engineering. The first programming subject we got apart from C is learning assembly language. I have zero knowledge of the subject and it seems quite intimidating at first glance, and was described to us as a hard course. So I wanted to ask, what would be the best sources of information to learn the language and how to even use it? The YouTube tutorials always seem a bit shit and from my first glance it is true for asm as well. We were also all recommended to read picrel over the course. Is it good and or enough for learning? It's 34 years old, so I was wondering if there were more recent manuals on the subject.

A wiki of sorts with profiles on politicians, organizations, and individual content creators. Each profile contains a series of sourced lists of: promises made, and kept/broken; declarative statements made; "true or false"/factual claims made; sources of funding (available in charts); directly associated individuals/organizations; and direct consequences of various activities.
So a profile could look something like these:

>Name: Dave Rubin

>Funded by Koch Brothers [1 - $UNKNOWN]
>Claims to be a classical liberal [2]

>Name: Donald Trump

>Promised to build a wall on the border of the United States and Mexico [1] [2 - BROKEN]

One of the really neglected aspects of programming is software 'architecture' i.e. how to do overall design of a software system. Indeed even today many companies are replacing leetcode/algorithms style interviews with "systems design" type interviews or at least adding that.

For leftists or open source programmers we also need to study systems design to make programs better.

First book is a textbook for a grad school class on software architecture, published first 2013, and the next is a more modern (2020) book on architecture which teaches more FAANG style designs.

opinions /tech/ ?

I've worked in FAANG. It's a fucking mess. It's a meme that they hire great people there. Most are average to good devs. I've worked on projects that had dedicated senior architects that got scrapped years later because they were obviously badly designed from day 1.

>>4143
Don't know about OSS, but I would expect it to be better written/designed.


Good software developers/architects must remember to be suspicious of using meme architecture, like microservices and meme technologies like nosql, and meme research areas like ML.

Also, re usability between unrelated projects is a fake meme (unless working in non shit languages, which is never the case). In almost all cases, readability, testability, and "refactorability", should be priority. Coupling, premature optimization, abusing OOP patterns (SingletFactoryAbstractFactoryBeanVisitor), use of compiler directives, global state, parallelization, should be avoided as much as possible. Clear APIs are also very important.

But yeah, how software is made is a good idea to think of new ways of structuring code.

thats a reason to study architecture more, not less…

as for >>4143 :
seriously, can any of these anons responding
>NUUUUU these graduate level textbooks on architecture are wrong, every academic computer scientist and senior FAANG engineer is a pseud compared to me, read my Stallman memes instead they are way more better and based.
actually tell me what particular problems with the PDFs in OP? or in >>4141 which is the pdf that has the FAANG styles, or are you literally just shitting on it because its muh silicon valley and i'm going to write it in common lisp instead because Paul Graham and Stallman told me to do that in the 90s even though the last time they wrote code 80% of the people that use this site weren't even born.

Really, the fucking arrogance.

>Good software developers/architects must remember to be suspicious of using meme architecture, like microservices and meme technologies like nosql, and meme research areas like ML.

those things are only memes for non tech companies which would indeed be better off making traditional apps + a relational database, which in practice, they already do. Almost every non-startup/faang just does 4 load balanced traditional web app (server side rendered) with an oracle or microsoft database and some rando reporting software for the business analysts/managers like crystal reports(if c#) or Jasper reports for java.

You dont know what you are talking about, you never was in faang for sure. You cant write good Java code (decoupled) without using OOP patterns
