[CHAT] Fuck Discord! Matrix FTW! (1)

1 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-09-24 07:17 ID:bSKKF4mb

https://tanasinn.vip/doku.php/matrix

IRC is cool and all but it's 2021. Fork in the road:
Discord OR Matrix.

We currently don't have a proper Matrix server of our own yet, but that doesn't matter because you can just join whatever server you want and then connect to channels, or make channels to share with others. Matrix is like IRC -- channel based, channels are atoms, the admin "owns" their own channel to some degree -- users are free to create new channels, and unlike IRC, permissions management is simple AND real end-to-end encryption is possible.

Unlike Discord, where the "channel group" is created first and then contains its exclusive channels within it (with a shared power structure), Matrix users can also freely create "channel groups" for relevant channels, for private use or social use, to help organize similar channels by concept or intention. This radical inversion of the paradigm is naturally more in line with VIP values and return a more natural, bottom-up sense of vision to this space that corporate entities seek to seize and exploit to maladaptive ends.

why did RMS's stomach exploding from his own semen when he orgasmed (interesting medical condition, that) kill your daughter? and how did he survive?

or did your daughter switch to he/him pronouns moments before his death?

Some hardware seems to have been made by fags.

Weeks ago I partly disassembled then basically completely reassembled a DVD drive and now it does not work. And yes I checked to see if the rubber band thing was connected correctly and I checked to see that all of the wires were connected. There was a rattling noise when it was tilted, but that was just the bearings.

P.S. I can't wait to use old xfsprogs to access an old XFS HDD (maybe I'm overstating my interest):

Hello /code/.

Shiichan sucks and is written in PHP. Kareha sucks, is written in Perl (which causes more issues than anything else ever could when trying hard to do so) and doesn't scale well at all, seeing how a board of just the size of 4-ch needs to use archiving scripts in order to keep things running smoothly.

Is there any sane BBS software out there or do I have to try and do it myself, despite not being too much of a coder?

It's hard to say what you are looking for and what exactly is your problem with all the other software. But despite more than seven years have passed by and you may already have found something, I just want to chime in dietchan: https://gitgud.io/zuse/dietchan

It's very small and lean, but still under development.

You can take any imageboard engine and just disable image posting. Or install forum software you like and make possible to post without registration.

Hard to do things can suddenly become fun when you git gud at it.

3 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-06-17 13:12 ID:3fWxxBa/

if you really like games then at least try before you give up because it LOOKS hard. ive never been into making games but thats mostly because i am bad at making things fun. i would say go for it and at least try.

4 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-07-02 00:47 ID:wWYGOMei

just be comfortable with ignorance and failure, and work on things you're passionate about. if you can get into the habit of regularly programming, you'll start "getting it" and it will get easier.

drink or do drugs while coding

6 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-07-25 05:44 ID:J+XP/MeO

Just pick a game engine and start messing with it, it's always the less troublesome way and will get you to actually making games in no time.
Always try to make mistakes early and often, that way you'll start seeing patterns and will quickly "get" how it all works.

7 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-09-03 02:06 ID:aUh7Jn3b

i think so. i recently started coding an imageboard just for practice and while my code is horrendous and incomplete as i'm still adding functions, it does run pretty well so far with what i've added.
it feels really good when i finally get something to work that i've been struggling with.

Old version of windows (17)

1 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2020-07-12 07:38 ID:E6pQ0wWM

Is there any clear disadvantage to using an old version of windows (xp, vista, 7) over windows 10? Are there any workarounds for those disadvantages?

8 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-03-19 18:45 ID:dwX2cRRA

>Windows 10 has destroyed more of my data with nonconsensually forced reboots than any virus or hacker ever did

Good thing that my shitty Windows 10 laptop has such a small hard drive that Microsoft ran out of enough space to keep pushing updates to and the Win 10 laptop was last update in like 2019.

P.S. This was sorta interesting -- I guess the point is that a lot of systems linked to corp.com as a default/placeholder value which could lead to bad things, if I remember correctly and didn't miss the point:

There is literally a switch that says about no updates.

12 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-05-05 08:45 ID:vG1qTHuH

The main disadvantage is not being able to run newer software that drop support for older versions of Windows, but in most cases you can still use the older versions that still work. Sometimes the programs will work even though they're no longer supported.

Here's also some advantages:
You can run old games and software easier. You can run old 16-bit DOS programs directly in CMD. Your system will be less of a target for newer viruses that mainly target Windows 10.

15 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-08-06 06:26 ID:3dNC4d5J

I use Windows 7, it just works. I'll keep using it as long as it's usable, I don't care about updates as they just keep adding more spyware these days so Microsoft can look at my dick pics and watch me jack off. After it's no longer usable I'll bite the bullet and use Linux with a DE that resembles Windows enough to not bother me.

There's always Linspire (AKA Lindows). https://www.linspirelinux.com/

17 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-09-03 02:04 ID:MDUjIv6j

i used windows xp for far too long, and windows 7 for several years after it stopped being supported. unpatched security holes start being abused to target corporations and governments without funding to upgrade, you start becoming vulnerable to literally getting viruses just by browsing the web through exploits in images and videos and even just javascript. it's absolutely not recommended.

if you dont want to get screwed over, either get a supported version of windows or find yourself a nice comfy linux distro and style it like old windows themes.

/code/ Challenge № III - Dokyun Calendar (5)

1 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2021-01-25 02:38 ID:JgcWjPb2 This thread was merged from the former /code/ board. You can view the archive here.

I always enjoyed doing these back on /prog/. Here's the deal:

Dokyun Calendar
Input: one non-negative integer, corresponding to a certain number of days after September 1st, 1993 (inclusive).
Output: three non-negative integers, corresponding to the day, month, and year, in the calendar of your choice.

Rules
There are no damn rules, just make something cool!
Addendum: don't forget leap years.

Reward
The best submission, as determined by the hive mind, wins ten (10) Internet Cool Guy Points.

Nice idea, but it feels almost wrong to have something like that. It breaks the magic, if you will. Something that goes the other way (takes a date in some format and outputs the September 1993 date) seems like a better idea.

If you know the answer to any of the questions in this thread, please help us out here! I am sure it's going to be appreciated.

I am creating this thread since there's ben popping up too many threads lately with single questions asking for help that aren't really set out to create too much interest.

I recently bought a Gateway DX4375-UR22. It came with a 1 terabyte hard drive. I turned it on, and it booted up using Ubuntu. Me being me, I stupidly decided to take it apart. I put it back together, and now there is a problem with the hard drive. Everything else works fine, except for the hard drive. The drive is a Seagate Barracuda 1000 Gigabyte. I decided to try it in another computer, but the other one does not recognize it as a drive. I tried putting a hard drive from another computer into the Gateway to see if it would boot, but no luck. The seagate drive spins, but it is not transferring data or being recognized. Can I save the drive? How can I boot up the computer?

You didn't take the fucking drive itself apart, did you? If so it's fucked, buy a new one.
If I'm reading you wrong, then I guess the chances are you didn't plug it in properly. It's getting power fine, but are you sure there's any actual data connection?

like perhaps how polygons and vector points causes the objects to behave

359 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-06-15 09:20 ID:qBTBQzxc

>>358
Hm. First, this is usually done by existing engines. There are 2d physics engines and 3d physics engines, search for them. In simple cases you don't really need for them though.

Try watching unity tutorials, they explained how models often have a different simplified model specifically for physics. Something that looks like a chair may have a much more low polygon collision box than the model you actually look at.

In 2d games, hitboxes are often a bunch of squares, but they can be a bunch of circles, or even repeat the shape of what you see pixel to pixel.

Wow this place is fucking dead.

Existing videocards only work with poligons. At least used to, maybe some insane people made videocards specifically for voxels or something.

>how to calculate the RAM required to run a software from its codes and during programming

1) Run program
2) See how much memory it eats in resource manager or something

or something liek sega arcade stuffs (power drift, space harrier, air rescue, aqua jack so on etc) especially the physics model and how stuff sticks and not fall thru the floors despite the gaps between things and maybe lack of polygon meshes?

perhaps the behind the scene/making of logic...
hopefully includes several model/solutions of troubleshooting the same thing of why and whynots
