The widespread adoption of IPv6 will make anonymous imageboards obsolete. The address space is simply too large to prevent spam.

Imageboards will be forced to implement accounts, even if the posting remains anonymous.

This website is still ipv4. Are you talking about in the future when ipv4 addresses become unavailable? It's possible that many sites will just ban people with ipv6 service and only let in the affluent people who can afford expensive ipv4 addresses.

Retards unironically still saying that there's no conformity in mainstream imageboards and that they aren't like reddit. Faggy ass "board culture" is an ideology of its own.

Any programmers here? I thought about simulating a population organizing resources for a while. Nothing serious, just doing it for fun. Anyone tried that before in their free time? Do you have any conceptual starting points? I will start:

Type: Person
Attributes: sex, age_range
That is to predict how much resources they themselves need and how much work they can produce. All based on averages.

Type: Resource
Attributes: quantity, state
Subtypes: metal, mineral, wood, food
The attribute "state" describes for example if the resource has been refined based on some procedure. The mentioned subtypes have further subtypes of course.

Type: Product
Attribute: kcal, components
Subtypes: electronics, furniture, dish
kcal is supposed to represent the average amount of work exerted with the most efficient available tools available to produce the product.

Hm, yeah coding under pressure because you have to do something you aren't interested in sucks. I don't know, I code for fun because it's like a puzzle you have to solve. There is a practical goal and you have a blank canvas and can design a system however you want. There are many ways to the same goal.

Xubuntu/Lubuntu on my desktops/laptops because I just want shit to work. I'm probably going to move off them to Devuan in the future though, after Canonical made the decision to drop 32-bit libraries and fuck over the Wine project. Void Linux is my preferred distro for servers because it's nice and simple.

US Supreme Court rules in favor of Google in largest-ever programming copyright case

https://www.rt.com/usa/520167-google-vanquishes-oracle-scotus-copyright/

SCOTUS has ruled that tech giant Google did not violate copyright law by reusing some 11,330 lines of code and other elements of fellow Big Tech player Oracle’s Java platform to build its wildly popular Android OS.

The $8 billion copyright case against Google landed heavily in the tech giant’s favor on Monday, with six judges finding in favor of the company and just two dissenting in support of Oracle.

Google had argued its reuse of the code in question was in line with “long-settled, common practice[s] in the industry,” insisting there is no copyright protection governing “purely functional, noncreative computer code” of the sort it lifted from Oracle to build Android in 2007.

>>Supreme Court justices seem poised to allow copyrights on APIs.
afaik its just how they operate, as their judgements are the highest authority, they try to narrow it down as much as possible. But that means any use/duplication of API will be recognized as "fair use", even if it did end up being copyrighted (which they didnt take a stance on)

https://www.theverge.com/2021/4/5/22367851/google-oracle-supreme-court-ruling-java-android-api
>In 2014, a federal appeals court ruled that the APIs could be subject to copyright in a controversial decision overturning a ruling by Judge William Alsup. (The Supreme Court declined to hear Google’s appeal the following year, letting the appellate ruling stand.) But that decision left open the question of whether Google’s implementation had violated the Java copyright, and Google launched a second phase of the case arguing that the Android APIs constituted fair use. In 2018, the same appellate court ruled that Google’s implementation was not fair use, putting the company at risk of up to $8.8 billion in damages. Today’s decision overturns that ruling, allowing Google to continue its use of the Android code without threat of a copyright claim.

>Notably, then-President Trump’s solicitor general had formally petitioned the Supreme Court to leave the appellate ruling in place, effectively siding with Oracle in the fight.

Emacs is a hacked together abomination but it's still the best text editor and operating system in existence.
The next Emacs release should be much faster because it will be GTK native and GCCEmacs will be merged.
But you are not totally wrong. Eventually, Emacs will either need a revolutionary overhaul that will force a total rewrite of several essential functions in order to become multithreaded OR it will need to be retired in favor of a new editor that is built for the 21st century. All of the fine tuned optimizations we are seeing at the Elisp level are trying to delay the inevitable.

Depends on what I'm writing. If it's something really short I use nano, if I'm writing something longer in C I'll use emacs.
I do some math stuff so I use python a lot, and I've recently found Spyder which makes my life much easier and is actually fun, though it makes my shitty laptop have a heart attack whenever I open it.

It seems to be a healthy project to me. Emacs is still getting plenty of bugfixes and some new features. By software standards it is ancient, and it does have a lot of baggage because of it, but I did not see any signs of it falling apart, at least as an outsider. I don't follow the development mailing list itself, only the emacs-news, so I might have missed the warning signs.

Emacs can do a lot that would surprise you. With pdf-tools it can display PDF files pretty much as good as a standalone PDF viewer: https://github.com/politza/pdf-tools There's a real-time video game written in it: https://github.com/fitzsim/slime-volleyball

I actually went from using notebooks to using Spyder, though I still use notebooks for some things, usually writing the code in spyder and then moving it to a notebook.

The only reason I'd use colab is because as far as I understand you run the code on google's servers rather than the laptop, but I actually have some access to a cluster anyway.

The glow is everywhere already.

Plus this sort of application inherently is large scale, so the ordinary user cannot easily replicate its capabilities.

But even if individualized privacy tech. can't stop it, proper organization can render it superfluous.
