Tachiyomi and all of its forks have stopped development due to Kakao. Manhwas killed the manga star. This thread could be used for finding alternatives.


Imagine paying for manga or comics, you pay $20 for something that will take like an hour to read??


aren't manga readers basically zip/pdf readers? did it have a function to download content from third parties or something?


>"legitimate" open-source development
Translation: "Open-source development that we approve of."


Was it scraping the images from their site? Or what was the issue?

they're really trying to force the AI meme, huh?


all that investment needs some kind of return. you need AI even though you don't want it.

Has it lived up to the hype or is it still too early to tell?

Oh! Glad we're in agreement, comrade.


Why isn't there anything on the board on the hype around local models since the beginning of this month? The hardware requirements and costs of running a local model have plummeted. It feels like a paradigm shift. Mixtral is very interesting.


Anybody experimenting with those transformer things? Can you do this:

1. Compute (outside the AI program) long number X made of repeating digit minus some long number Y without consecutive repeats to make long number Z with very few repeating consecutive digits or none.

2. Ask the AI what Z plus Y makes.


Too many of my words are slanted in the above because of alcohol.

Hurdy Gurdys are pretty neat. Saw a kit for building one using just wood cutouts and wax, could be a fun CNC project.


I like the idea of just being able to slap more hands / devices onto a clock as needed. Fill a whole wall with time related information of varying usefulness.


this is tech. self powered, elegant, zero maintenance. post more please.

copyright for proles/artisans=good

to say otherwise would be like one of those people who says burgling some wageslave's house is leftist praxis because property should be abolished


the hbomberguy video probably


I'm pro-OpenAI-getting-fucked.


>copyright for proles/artisans=good
1. Artisans are capitalists.
2. Proletarians cannot own private intellectual property. If they do, then they become bourgeoisie.
>to say otherwise would be like one of those people who says burgling some wageslave's house is leftist praxis because property should be abolished
The proletariat's ultimate goal is to abolish private property, ie., capital.


capitalist innovation: DRM in trains!!


Didn't the company responsible for this deny all wrongdoing? Lol


They claim so in the video.

You know what would actually be a useful AI? One that crawls through the text of the entire written works of an author, isolates each logical assertion that author makes, and cross-checks it against other logical assertions for contradictions, to see if that author ever contradicts themselves. Is such a thing possible using LLMs? Does such a thing already exist?

it probably already is possible if you just customize GPT's personality and guide it every time for each text


Funny how Abrahamic religions rely on the validity of their religious texts so much. Really shows that they can't stand on their own and have no real practical advantage over other worldviews, it's just constant self-validation.


This doesn't just require understanding pronouns and antecedents. It also requires understanding what the nouns actually designate, in terms of their qualities with respect to each other, what "fit" actually describes in the relationship between the two things.
>Current AI is very flaky at this.
From my understanding it doesn't do it at all and can only occasionally imitate it passably out of luck and because people tend not to intentionally throw curveballs. The chatbot AI we have now isn't even supposed to be able to do this, either. The way people are asking it questions to get real answers fundamentally misunderstands the problems it's designed to solve. At the same time, the way people are trying to use the chatbots does show that they are succeeding at what they are supposed to do, which is produce text that looks like something a human would produce. The problem here isn't that the AI sucks, but that people misunderstand what tool they're using and aren't trying to verify or fact check things.


It's Wilton. Robert Anton Wilson.


AI doesn't understand the meaning of statements or words, it's only a statistical analysis of recurring sequences of symbols.

Not to mentions that statements made by some author are not necessarily unambigious in their meaning, so even humans can't achieve what you ask.

Comrades, we need a thread on privacy. Any decent activist should try ways of staying anonymous on the web and prevent being tracked by governments and corporations.General tips===* Use free software as much as you can.* Use GNU/Linux and keep it up-to-date, to be sure that you don't have unpatched security exploits* Don't use Flash Player, use youtube-dl instead for watching streaming videos online* Do not use Google, use DuckDuckGo or StartPage instead* Use a password manager like Keepass or for GNU/Linux users keepassx. Create new passwords for every site that you visit and use a strong password as a master password. A tip for easy remembering of your master password is to use a sentence. "i fucking love cookies and tits!" with extra capital characters etc. is easier to remember than some random characters and long enough to prevent brute force attacks of any kind.* Use the Tor Browser Bundle if you really want to stay anonymous.Firefox====* Go to Preferences -> History and set History to "Never remember history". * See for additional tweaks: https://github.com/amq/firefox-debloat and https://vikingvpn.com/cybersecurity-wiki/browser-security/guide-hardening-mozilla-firefox-for-privacy-and-securityAdd-ons-----------* Use uBlock Origin for preventing tracking etc. Bonus: use hard-mode to manually whitelist external domains on sites. Don't use uBlock but be sure to use uBlock Origin https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Blocking-mode:-hard-mode* HTTPS Everywhere* DecentralEyes: prevents CDN hosting from tracking you (Google for Jquery etc.)* Self Destructing Cookies: only allow cookies that you choose to allowOS==* Encrypt your hard drive or home partition at least* If you use GNU/Linux, you can try to restrict systemd or syslog from logging. * Use a distribution which takes security seriously. Also, be sure that you don't install a lot of things outside the repository. It will cover most of your needs.Real life tips===* Pay with cash if you canFeel free to provide tips to each other comrades!
