Skeletons, creepers,
Zombies, killing me all night
Hardcore is too hard

Textpunk (10)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2015-11-15 14:28 ID:pISPZOGG

we've all heard about cyberpunk and cipherpunk, but here's something new:


That's right. Textpunk

Newspaper articles, BBSs (like this one), IRC, ASCII art, Kopipe, program source code, Novels, View HTML source, Google search engine, Mathematics, Hieroglyphics, The Rosetta Stone, Gutenberg Bible...

A textpunk doesn't sit there waiting for information to be slowly fed to him drip at a time by the gogglebox. A textpunk is thirsty for knowledge and 100% focused - they read old school hacker textfile zines. They don't waste their time with lame imageboarders: instead they're doing crazy abstract shitposting on /prog/ with thoughts and concepts twisted up so with many levels of irony that it becomes an art form.

Textpunks recognize and understand the true power of kopipe - how a well crafted piece of text can be so damn powerful that it alone can trigger thousands of replies with so much veracity within days. They see through things down into the core of what really counts, everything in the computer is built of text, ascii, strings of bits - They don't care about the latest 3D GUI environment fads. No, that's just a distraction. 7-bit clean ascii program source code. That's textpunk.

You misunderstand the reason for ASCIIpunk:

Computers have gotten considerably more powerful, but they are being bottlenecked by the software that is running on them, it is bloated, horrible, interpreted languages and hugely extravegant GUIs are used for simple programs, weighing them down. ASCIIpunk is not a lust for the past, it is the trimming of needless fat from software in order that software that actually needs to be demanding (rendering, compiling etc) has as many system resources avalible to it. We are the rebellion against the culture of NodeJS, Microsoft and other such retardation.

8 Name: Anonymous : 2016-04-18 01:01 ID:tEfV9eaF

I agree with all of your points, but interpreted languages aren't necessarily bad, it's just that most interpreters for modern languages are horribly optimized. It is possible to make an optimized interpreter, however, it requires a lot of low level knowledge similar to that of optimizing a compiler. Most language developers probably don't want to deal with those types of things.

Text is great, OP. I highly recommend this shrine to the almighty textfile:

Here's a pile of ancient anime textfiles too:

This Maison Ikkoku guide textfile set has always amazed me with the amount of work and care put into it: From ASCII art of character names in Kanji, to detailed conventions/schemes for information, to all matter of detailed data, this was a real love letter to the textfile.

I think it would also be amazing to use an authentic CRT serial terminal for the Linux console, like this:

"If you know the name of a spirit, you have power over it"...Gerald Sussman (your SICP ref reminded me of this).

Suffering from Iconophobia (aversion to images) (6)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2015-11-14 06:22 ID:LRdzHt7t

Hi 4ch!

I was wondering: Is there someone lurking here out of a general dislike towards images? Compared to text, I always felt like pictures were dirty; looking at them is an unpleasent experience to me. Therefore I have now blocked every image in my browser and am currently looking for alternatives to imageboard, youtube, ect.

Someone here in a similar situation?

2 Name: Anonymous : 2015-12-19 07:24 ID:bl6/Gid4

Waste of download.
Internet should be devoid of all images except for creations.
Icons and such are stupidity. Stupidity deserves no place.

I agree. I used to browse on here a good bit in '08. After 8 years, I feel like everything in my life has changed, but this site has not really changed at all.

As long as the servers remain operational, little nooks and crannies like this give me hope that the internet isn't completely doomed.

40 Name: Anonymous : 2016-03-31 15:44 ID:+ECLPeOh

it makes me feel strange.
4-ch almost feels like it shouldn't exist, not that i'd prefer it didn't, but it feels like a relic of a bygone era - an era that i've idealized.

having a 4-ch tab open alongside 4chan, one thread speeding by before i can even read it, and one thread that won't have any replies a month from now is a most unusual experience. all the more-so because while the site itself feels like travelling back to a 'better' time, the other users retain their knowledge of current events.

even though it's unreasonable to assume so - the site has survived for a decade after all - i fear that one day 4-ch may die, or worse yet become unrecognisable. while i'd like things to run a little faster (not significantly so, as that would take away from the "can read once a week and see everything") i fear there's a quantity-quality relationship between posts.

4ch is the web version of the stereotypical "paradise" that palm-tree'd island in the ocean. an tiny part of a much bigger, often uglier world.
4ch is the web as it should be, as it could be, not as it is.

Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing,
Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another,
Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence.

I know some people want to create their own imageboard, but don't know how to. So I went and created a site where anyone can create a board with a click of a button. The site's pretty new.

My wish is that it'll be like a big stats screen, like in MGS or GTA or something where you can see various details about your progress (shooting accuracy, meals eaten, tyres popped with gunfire etc.) but incredibly detailed, anything you can think of you'd be able to see, like:

  • how many granules of sugar you ate
  • words typed
  • numbers of buttons pressed
  • shooting accuracy
  • NPCs met
  • distance travelled
  • sperm fired (ml)
  • longest wheely (bicycle)
  • longest wheely (scooter)

Anything and everything. I also think that at the time of death you project your own idea of an afterlife, so if you believe in "hell" and in your final moment of clarity you know you've sinned, you experience your own personal hell or something, like how you dream about things you worry about in your waking hours

If it's gonna list every stats in your lifetime...
That's probably one hell of a list there, mate.
