Also if anybody knows how to get text-align: justify; to work for lianchan styles I would love to know.


Isn't there a code tag


when i try to apply
text-allign: justify;
to posts, but it doesn't work. Center, left and right do work.


you misspelled align


i guess the issue was that I have to set
white-space: normal;
text-align: justify;

the default value for white-space messes up justification.


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!

I've lost count of how many times Novideo has announced they're making an "open source driver" (whatever that means). It isn't even the full driver: https://github.com/NVIDIA/open-gpu-kernel-modules

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

Good to hear, it's just something my C++ autism has been nagging me about throughout


Btw, we're now done with chap. 2!

Until 2021-06-25:

* 3: Modularity, Objects, and State
** 1: Assignment and Local State
*** 1: Local State Variables
*** 2: The Benefits of Introducing Assignment
*** 3: The Costs of Introducing Assignment


So I want to read the funny Patchouli book, can I only read it or would it be advised to also try some Lisp on the side as I read it?


You have to do the exercises, otherwise it does not count.


You can read >>14156 as an introduction to lisp.

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.

xD this is most indubitably epic sir


read cockshott

esp. toward a new socialism, but also book related


Nice twitter meme!


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.


Moar liek quantity->quality, amrite??

>>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).


You're fucked either way, you should use tor if you want privacy sadly.


I think he's talking about this bug.

>WebExtensions can be used as user fingerprint



That relies on JavaScript, which he indicated the problem he was talking about did not.


>inb4 it's because torproject says
<You should not install any additional add-ons on Tor Browser because that can compromise some of its privacy features.

This is your reminder to go to a park with a bag of books and have at it before you get De Quervain's/carpal tunnel syndrome/computer vision syndrome.

Take a break from that screen my friend :)

wtf its tru tho, just cause u have good eyes that dont have problems with screens doesnt mean its not a thing, or that it's somehow anti-tech


staring at a screen for hours will at most make you feel fatigued which will fix itself after sleeping, it will never cause myopia or astigmatism or whatever, thats on your genes





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.


have you considered going to an eye doctor……..? lol


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!".

Clip on track pad but the Toshiba T series was before the business world took Windows seriously, back then the people that could afford these machines only wanted to run Lotus 1-2-3 and Word Perfect for Dos.


touchpads are awful


Hence the clit.

I'm not doing survivorship bias, I'm saying a ton of people who are going into tech degrees will get nowhere with them and have been scammed, because they spent four years learning nothing and have no skills.


Most of those weaker CS majors will end up in application support, IT infrastructure, helpdesk, or become business analysts. Some will muddle through as mediocre programmers for the minimum amount of years until they manage to get into project/product management (or "real" management). So they will still have jobs in the tech industry just not as programmers.


>90% of my graduating class still didn't know how to use a CLI or manually manage memory
Non garbo collected languages are common in industry and using a CLI is optional depending on IDE.


People who don't understand memory management write bad GC lang code. I've seen this basic pattern all over real production code:
Class1 DoSomething(Class1 thing) {
    Class1 thingCopy = thing; 
    thingCopy.Mutate(); // Oops
    return thingCopy;

CLI tools are used all the time even for IDE-centric languages like C# or Java. Programmers who don't venture out of their IDE even a bit won't have a clue what's going on when they:
>write a build script or pipeline
>run migrations
>use git
>have to deal with their web frontends
>the list goes on…

True enough. This applies to a lot of "wasted"/"useless" majors– they end up doing something somewhat unrelated to their degree, but not necessarily just working at Starbucks.

except CS isn't just SWE, its more generic so a linux sysadmin, network admin, QA, or prod/app support engineer/analyst isn't really wasting their degree, they just have a job in tech thats less prestigious than being a dev.
