>tfw my W520 and 3770k are less affected than all later releases

Honestly this is just a good reminder that if you want an uncucked experience you're probably better off looking at older devices. A Q6600 is a reliable workhorse and was a great value for its time.

I'm starting to move to a model where I use older, more secure hardware paired with newer, minimal operating systems to minimize attack space of my local files and documents. Meanwhile, if I need power, I keep the poz'd hardware separate and have it run the more intensive tasks. Makes it harder for communication to be spied-on but you can still do all your development, media encoding, archival storage, and even gaming via a box that retains no data and only allocates resources.

Cloud computing isn't a terrible idea if you own your own cloud. You still can't trust the new high-end hardware, but you can just let it be insecure and take full advantage of the hardware while your personal information sits locked on older hardware with fewer backdoors.

Hello, my frens. I have a game idea. It came to me in a dream. I think it could really, truly be something. But there's one problem. I don't know what the fuck I'm doing. So, if anyone wants to help me make this happen, please do reply to this post. Compensation is off the table. This is purely a passion project. But when it gets finished, you may get a share in the profits (which, I might add, will probably be at LEAST in the DOZENS of dollars. You can buy like 75 packs of ramen with that).

The idea is essentially a Minecraft-esque vector block MMO game, but with NPC workers, oil, big machinery, vehicles with GTA-esque physics, and warefare. It's a big project that I think will be very fun to work on.

If you're interested in possibly helping make this happen, just let me know what your skillsets are in your reply and I'll be in touch.

Lastly, although I'm incapable of any form of programming or graphic design, I'm also not just "idea guy". I can do more than give cool but vague ideas and ask you guys to fill in the blanks. I have a lot of plans for balance and technicalities, and I can think real gud. Trust in one another and we can make this happen. And everything is subject to change, so if you have better ideas for certain things I'm open to them. :)

The game will need developers who are capable of:

Networky stuff

Graphicy stuff

C0dey stuff

Find me a non-trivial program that doesn't need JSON (or something with the same purpose) somewhere. Should there be built in JSON syntax? No, especially seeing as JSON is ill-specified.

>…you said the exact opposite one post ago.

Yes. For the sake of getting rid of crap semantics, the default type of number should not be machine words. That solved Problem A, which is the most obvious one.

Now Problem B is whether we want to bloat the language with some "official" number type or not.

Then if we head further into clown world, Problem C is which syntaxes should be supported?

Octal?

Decimal?

Hex?

Binary?

Thousands? e.g 9_999_999, 1_234_567_891_123, etc. latest fad for Haskell, Java, and now Go (I'm sure C#, JS, and whoever else added it too now while I wasn't paying attention)

In my school of thought that's just merging the UI into the language in a stupid way. (Same for comments. Same for names. Same for code layout.) Instead, why not have an editor that just displays the number literal however the user wants. From an auditors perspective, we never care about how the developer wants us to view his shit anyway. We may be looking at some number written in the code as decimal, but want to see it in hex or binary and would have copied into a converter or calculated in our head anyway.

Say we have an expression like this:

One (One (One (One Empty)))

It could be in the console:

<GetNumThings()

>One (One (One (One Empty)))

Or in the code editor:

>x = One (One (One (One Empty)))

>Find me a non-trivial program that doesn't need JSON (or something with the same purpose) somewhere. Should there be built in JSON syntax? No, especially seeing as JSON is ill-specified.

Tons of programs don't use JSON. "Anything with the same purpose", in addition to being unclear (what's the purpose?), changes the question to one where the language arbitrarily chose something out of the things that serve the purpose. There is no "different arithmetic" serving the same purpose as standard arithmetic that is unrightfully discarded by adding the latter to your language. So this doesn't answer my question.

Again, I get the intense feeling that you say "number" and "number type" but mean something completely different like "number syntax" or "special handling for numbers". Your rant about "Problem C" (which I mostly agree with, though if there is no standardized representation I don't see how you'd exchange programs with anything that doesn't natively understand whatever the implementation uses) supports me in that.

So how would a language "without a number type" look like? Does every single program in it have to define what a number is, arithmetic, etc. from scratch out of bits or whatever other primitive? If yes, what is the gain here, especially compared to the compatibility issues and subtle errors a dozen different implementations would create? If not, what exactly would be (semantically!) different from a "normal" language?

Serialization. It's either JSON, XML, ASN.1, Protocol Buffers, etc, etc.

>[This] changes the question to one where the language arbitrarily chose something out of the things that serve the purpose.

Yep.

>There is no "different arithmetic" serving the same purpose as standard arithmetic

I dunno… Why not define subtraction of natural numbers so sub(x,y) fails if y is greater than x? What's the correct way?

Why not have Naturals as well as Integers?

When inducing a protocol from types (as opposed to specifying bits or using some doodoo like Protocol Buffers or JSON), this is decent gain, because now the protocol specifies exactly what's acceptable and we don't need some comment (or clause in a spec) which everyone ignores, and we also don't need a bunch of runtime checks everywhere. Of course now we're more likely to need conversion from Natural to Integer or whatever once in a while but I feel it's more explicit and the other way around just lets lazy programmers not care about the edge cases.

We can have whatever types we want:

Integer: …-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3…

Natural: 0,1,2,3…

Positive: 1,2,3,4…

Rational: +/- …1/1,2/1,3/1,4/1,1/2,2/2,3/2,4/2…

>Again, I get the intense feeling that you say "number" and "number type" but mean something completely different like "number syntax" or "special handling for numbers"

When talking about existing PLs, I mean the whole part of the PL dealing with numbers - the syntax, the implementation, the type the language provides to the user (i.e, ->int<- x = 3). When talking about my language, I just mean the user-defined type, and I guess whatever functions he defines on it.

Hrmph. It's kind of hard to go back and go over all of what lead me to this.

10 years ago I was trying to design a secure typed language. Looking at every language and seeing how they have some arbitrary crap machine-word integers pissed me off. So much that I even considered using Peano arithmetic. Later, I started to doubt this path, because Peano arithmetic is crap no matter how you look at it performance wise, and probably can't be guaranteed to be optimized out. I started to think the idea of a general language can't exist and you have to add ad-hoc crap like built in strings or ints to it. Later, I somehow met someone else working on a similar language for similar reasons. He did the same thing as me, just let the user define his own numbers however he wants. However, instead of Peano he implemented binary arithmetic. I was like sheeit why didn't I think of that. And thus the problem was solved. Anything can be implemented by the user without built in support, because it only has to be asymptotically efficient. And this covers all programming use-cases outside of DSP and a few other edge cases, which is fine. I only want the other 99.999% of the OS in my language. Polyglots burn in hell.

Some reasons I don't want built in integers:

I want the language to be as simple as possible (especially because some of the meta stuff might be complicated)

I don't want the language to have a grammar or require parsing (it's 2d like i said before. this isnt some bullshit flowcharts like DRAKON or whatever crap out there. it's 2d because this allows extensible syntax as well as being the opposite of UNIX and therefore the correct choice)

I want to reuse the types _of the language_ everywhere: for sending on the network, for embedding in documents (replace PDF and HTML), embedding in chats, types in the database are just types in the language. And I never want anyone to have to choose how it's serialized. I can send someoPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>the other way around just lets lazy programmers not care about the edge cases.

In fact, let me clarify that. It's not that lazy programmers are forced to care about the edge cases (they aren't, and some will still blindly copy around a bunch of conversions that can error, for example negative Integer to Natural). It's more that now they forced to tell me what the edge cases are. And they're forced to make the protocol better defined. If I had to count the times I had to consider what happens when some number can be negative or hits some other edge case…

Now I know what you're thinking,"I'm not special, why would the NSA or any organization take any kind of interest in me?". They don't, and they probably won't, but it'd be real easy to store all that information until you do become special, until it's useful.

Why WOULD you use Twitter? Or any Twitter clone. The concept is pants on head retarded, encourages the absolute worst possible behavior and the only way to have anything of value on there is by abusing the format through making 20 posts in a row or posting text as an image. It's like saying anonymous boards are great because they have tripcodes.

Twitter is trash and a big fucking tumor on human society. This goes for the majority of shit on the OP image, actually. It's like asking if there is a non-botnet alternative to sticking uranium up your ass and recommending an arsenic enema instead. The lengths to which "people" will have Pepsi/Cola debates instead of drinking water is depressingly incredible.

I'm thinking about buying the Pinebook Pro instead of an old Thinkpad, as it offers modern hardware without any major hardware backdoors.

> Can offer a useable experience with a deblobbed kernel, only thing you'll loose is WiFi

> No Intel IME or AMD PSP, only possible backdoor is a 32kb boot ROM

> Publicly available component datasheets and schematics

> Hardware privacy switches for webcam and mic

> Good battery life and USB-C charging

Is there anything not to like about this device, besides the fact that it's ARM based?

Wow, that's quite a bit more expensive than I was expecting. It's probably so expensive because of all the custom parts, but when compared side-by-side to the Pinebook Pro, I can't see any reason to buy one of these things instead. The price/performance ratio is terrible, and the Pinebook Pro can deliver a better overall experience (once you disable the terrible trackpad) for cheaper.

I might buy one in a few years when my Pinebook Pro dies though, as unlike the Pinebook Pro, you can easily find replacement batteries for this thing.

much more expensive, but much more secure

might as well go to a local pawn shop, buy a laptop for under $175.00, get an SSD from Amazon, maybe do a RAM upgrade, and install your own distro

why buy new?

just make one

Get a USB to Ethernet adapter. Problem solved.

> ubuntu mate?

There's an increasing number of OSes available for the Pinebook Pro, I'll probably install Gentoo or Alpine on my device when it arrives. You aren't stuck with the terrible stock OS.

> much more expensive, but much more secure

More secure according to what metric? The Pinebook Pro has no Intel IME / AMD PSP (unlike the Purism laptop, which has a neutered one), it has physical privacy switches (just like the Purism laptop), the PCBs are open source, and all the component datasheets are freely available.

> might as well go to a local pawn shop, buy a laptop for under $175.00, get an SSD from Amazon, maybe do a RAM upgrade, and install your own distro

I think you're missing the whole point of the Pinebook Pro. If you want the best $200 laptop you can find, the Pinebook Pro isn't it.

>>1163

Eh, there's some other good things too, like the open source PCBs and great community support.

Imagine paying 3x the price for a monitor you have no idea what it does or why its better

Imagine taking it seriously after it takes 15 seconds for every modeswitch and to turn on at all

Imagine doing this every couple years since 2006

By 2006, LCDs were just finally getting around to not sucking so hard, after they replaced CRTs for very obvious stairway-safety reasons.

My memory of monitors since is that they keep getting larger and cheaper. Where have you ever spent 3x the price of the last monitor?

They've gotten cheaper and then expensive again. In recent years you have niggers paying $500 at a minimum for some bogus features like VRR, HDR, VRR 2.0 with HDR, full array local dimming, wide gamut version 774317, a few extra Hz, ultrawide + fixes to make it work, some other shit features that we forgot existed 5 months after shilling ended, etc. Shit even the marketing campaign of renaming LCD screens to "LED monitors" had everyone trashing their current trash and buying a new trash with LED backlight instead of CCFL.

>Larger and cheaper

The standard has been ~24" for like 10 years now, with lots of people moving to 27" recently (in the 16:9 market). Not that any of that makes a huge difference. Pixel density only became a thing (outside the sane 0.1%ers) recently too.

And to top this all off, not only does each generation have 10x more bugs, but each improvement necessarily trades something off. Like going to 120Hz/144Hz resulted in tons of horse-shit response times.
