I’m currently studying for a degree in Computer Sciences. Before choosing this, most people i’ve consulted told me that I should instead take Engineering since I was an academic student. But I always had a keen interest in IT related fields. Now that i’ve chose this, I don’t know what i should be doing next. Whether i should learn how to code or what? So far, programming is the only thing on my mind.

>TL;DR: nerd cannot decide what he should do after he’s done with his CS degree.

ITT—Suggestions on what i should do. Is coding worth it? Which language is the most valuable (and/or) easy to learn?

>When you say mathletes, do do you mean mathlets?

No, I mean mathlete. I'm trying to denigrate people who fellate mathematics in a way similar to those who say, "I fucking love science!". These attitudes are one in the same.

>What am I really driving at with all this?

People who push the "programming is all maths" narrative believe that the proper mindset when programming is similar to, or exactly like, the mindset when one is in a university mathematics classroom; however, this is not the proper mindset and leads a programmer to ignore important aspects of software development. You'll see these people push for languages like LISP and Haskell, or push for abstractions that "free themselves to deal with the problems they actually want to solve" while ignoring the technical and practical aspects of software development. These "programming is all maths" people brought us garbage collection, object orientation, and some of the most ineffectual programming languages to date.

>Are you suggesting that mathematics is not used is programming/software development?

No, not at all. Mathematics are used in software development. Want to compute a distance on a raster, find the shortest path, or perform some kind of hotspot analysis using a kernel density estimation? Well then you'll have to understand and use mathematics. The distinction that I'm trying to convey is that in order to use any of the aforementioned, you are not required to approach those problems the same way you would in a mathematics classroom: rote memorization of various forms of problems each with its extensive micromanagement and minute tracings. In contrast, all that is required is to have a conceptual understanding of the mathematical process, or processes, at play and be able to implement that process on a computer. You do not have to approach it like you are studying for a math test and these "programming is all maths" people preach this classroom mentality shit in spades.

Who cares if the government knows where I am, or can access the AI on my smart phone to predict my schedule. It's not a secret. Perhaps marketers will offer me better deals to the store I frequent. The more advertisers know about me, the better targeted their ads can be, and that helps me get better stuff.

Another amazing possibility that we can utilize with big data, and that so called 'privacy advocates' would chide (seriously, you don't work for the CIA/MI6, it's ok to share) is to help us meet new people. We live in an increasingly diverse world, in which the people walking beside you on the street vary likely did not attend the same primary school as you. They didn't grow up in your neighbourhood, and your guardians didn't exchange recipes. Who do you get to know them? A very cool, disruptive technology that machine learning affords us, is to solve this social problem by automatically alerting us when someone nearby is a positive match for our interests. Perhaps you two have recently watched the same three TED talks, have a similar connection of running shoes, or spend similar hours in the gym! The possibilities are endless. If you two walk by each other, don't you think you should know about it? If you happen to be near a star bucks, there's an opportunity for them to offer you a discount on drinks used for your conversation starter. Let's stop seeing each other for how different we are, and learn our similarities, or should I say… let the machine's do that heavy lifting (ha ha). Who knows, a Syrian refugee could meet the girl of his dreams this way, and it brings our world closer together. When you look at the net positive for humanity, I don't see how anyone could argue against it.

What he said.

Although personally I bit the bullet and usually use a *20 series. You can go as late as *30 and retain the old keyboards, ThinkLight, etc.

It's possible to mitigate a lot of the other stuff via a BIOS flash, which is strongly encouraged.

But you do technically need to worry about IME. Still, I'd rather the NSA have my backdoor than China. I feel confident that their backdoor isn't nearly as useful as it would be if I were some pleb running Windows with unencrypted files, but who knows. If you're that paranoid about it then you definitely want to go older. Pre-IME Intel chips. Perhaps last-generation IBM or first-generation Lenovo, when China's ability to modify advanced designs was basically non-existent and the best they could do was clone for cheap.

Reminder that it's still your responsibility to minimize attack surface, and a lot of these rootkit-tier backdoors still need to inject code into the OS to be effective due to design limitations.

This means install Gentoo and go full-minimal if possible. Or Arch if that's your thing. The less standard your computing environment the harder it is to inject code.

IME can also theoretically be disabled or severely neutered.

https://hackaday.com/2016/11/28/neutralizing-intels-management-engine/

If the IME can't have network access, and the BIOS is libre and doesn't support CompuTrace, then you've effectively killed the best backdoors.

>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.

Hi, let's try if I can open a thread about learning Prolog (Programming Language). I'm currently learning it and sometimes I should ask people about it. There are books and tutorials, but it would help to have some study group. The tutorials I found often contain errors or aren't explaining stuff very well. Since AI is becoming more and more important others might be interested in it as well. I don't mind if someone posts questions about other rather exotic languages with rather poor tutorials in this thread.

Let's start with this:

?- member(a, [a, b, c]).

true

?- member("Alita", ["Alita","Isla","Chi","Cameron"]).

true

?- [user].

|: alist(["Alita","Isla","Chi","Cameron"]).

?- member("Alita", alist).

false. Why?

?- member("Alita", alist(A)).

false.

?- alist(A).

A = ["Alita", "Isla", "Chi", "Cameron"].

?- member("Alita", (A = alist(A))).

false.

When I write this:

?- alist(X), member("Alita", X).

It should create X='the list I want'. Well, it does, it gives back:

X = ["Alita", "Isla", "Chi", "Cameron", …]

But it does not use it in the second term or command.

Another try:

|: sublist(A,B) :- alist(A),member(A,B).

?- sublist("Alita", alist).

false.

?- sublist("Alita", alist(X)).

false.

Well, probably I understood something in those tutorials wrong. I get the tests in those right, but as soon I try something on my own it fails. Getting useful answers from guys which know Prolog on the other hand seems to be rather difficult. However, I downloaded some books now, so I'll try it with those. Maybe this works better for me.

you keep saying alist(X), I think you're very confused about how Prolog works.

consider:

$ cat list.pl
alist([alita, isla, chi]).
anotherlist([isla, chi]).

waifu :-
alist(L),
member(alita, L),
print('waifu found').

bad :-
anotherlist(L),
member(alita, L),
print('waifu found?').

marry(L) :-
member(Waifu, L),
print('I guess I\'ll marry...'),
print(Waifu).

Ah, thanks. Now I've got it.

This is working:

?- [user].

|: fembots(["Alita", "Isla", "Chi"]).

|: buildfembot(X) :- fembots(L),member(X, L),print("Start building…").

|: ^D% user://9 compiled 0.06 sec, 3 clauses

?- buildfembot("Alita").

"Start building…"

true .

The variable for the list only needs to be on the right side. I got confused with the idea of singelton variables. I thought I need the same on both sides, but it's only important that they occur more than once.

I nearly had this part: buildfembot(X) :- fembots(L),member(X, L)

Here: sublist(A,B) :- alist(A),member(A,B). Doesn't work.

Also doesnt work: sublist(A,B) :- alist(B),member(A,B).

I didn't need the variable for the list I wanted to retrieve, and it might even not possible to hand it over that way. If it is possible, then I still don't know that part. However, that's no problem. The right style in Prolog seems to be to break these things in little parts anyways.

I started reading "Prolog Programming - A First Course, Paul Brna"

After 10 years my old hardware finally shat it, likely motherboard or CPU failure. This puts me in a bind because all x86 CPUs made in the last seven years or so have had Intel ME or AMD PSP – I had hoped that everything would hold out until there was a nice solution to this. AMD seemed to lean towards opening up their firmware at one point but then cucked out, probably due to licensing bullshit or bio-luminescent Africans.

I could go with the AMD FX series for the time being for that appears to be the most powerful x86 CPU without such cancer, but that's still pretty old hardware and finding (spare) parts for it is not going to become any easier as time goes by. I have also heard good things about the PC Engines APU 1, but with 1GHz it doesn't seem like a great choice for a desktop, especially one that's going to run Gentoo. Running 4GB of RAM right now so 2GB would still be livable.

Let's collect other good options for a system that doesn't have a goddamn backdoor at the hardware level. x86 would be preferred for the occasional Windowns shitware, but it's not absolutely necessary. I've heard that (recent or at the very least many) ARM processors have comparable cancer so a simple "use ARM" would probably not be enough, it would depend on the chip. Might be misinformation though since I haven't seen details on it. Performance would definitely become an issue once we go to less common architectures however.

inb4 "just disable the backdoor lol", you are the only disabled one here if you believe this shit, even when "disabled" it's still on and required for booting – if your method wouldn't theoretically allow you to use the CPU with a nail driven through the "security" processor, it's not a solution to this problem.

The problem is that chip fabrication is really expensive unless you do it at scale. Your random autist can't just easily test his designs, mistakes are insanely expensive compared to software, and the entire business is self-centralizing; then once you are large enough you're a great target for the CIA niggers.

I vaguely remember a blog being posted here around a year ago of some hobbyist making his own semiconductors. Of course his process was large and his yields were ass, but it was mildly interesting. Can't find it anymore, unfortunately.

If you're willing to accept minor companies instead of hobbyists, I think Chuck Moore's (of Forth fame) Green Arrays Inc. also fabs its own stuff, but I can't find clear info on their site. Their chips are ~130nm.

FPGAs are an option for low-end shit, but FPGA companies' main business model is IP fuckery with (often Windows-exclusive) toolchains, so the FPGAs with free or reversed toolchains quickly go out of print.

According to this, Piledriver is the last architecture without pspoz: https://freundschafter.com/cybersecurity-cpu-and-system-alternatives-without-intel-me-iamt-and-amd-psp-secure-technology/

So if you are already going for a "budget" box by using ~7 year old CPUs, one of the APUs may not be a bad idea either. The FXs were powerhungry as fuck.

Why do people use this Freetardism "Freedoms" for anything software, when most of this is easy to argue against. This person made a good webpage explaining the errors of this.

https://digdeeper.neocities.org/ghost/freetardism.html

But if you're not willing to go to the side, here's his writing of that section:

"The four essential freedoms A program is free software if the program's users have the four essential freedoms: [1]"

Okay, so a program has to satisfy some defined freedoms to be considered "free software". But do those freedoms actually have any relevancy to actual, practical freedom?

Freedom 0

"The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose (freedom 0)."

"The freedom to run the program […] without being required to communicate about it with the developer or any other specific entity. " - You mean that, for all those years I've been using Windows programs, I've been required to communicate with some "entities"? That's funny.

"In this freedom, it is the user's purpose that matters, not the developer's purpose" - This is actually impossible - the purpose is always defined by the programmers. And "free software" might still impose unwanted "purposes" onto you - like all the "free software" browsers on https://spyware.neocities.org/articles/ (archive). On the other hand, a nonfree software might make its purpose evident and not violate it - and will provide more actual freedom than so-called free software.. Also,

"The freedom to run the program as you wish means that you are not forbidden or stopped from making it run" - this is easy to violate in the so-called "free software". What prevents me from making a program that can only be run on Wednesdays? Nothing.

Freedom 1

"The freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish (freedom 1). Access Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

This. It's quite frankly amazing that our world is so shit we needed someone like RMS to step up and formalize what any decent person should already believe. You often hear

<b-but rms didn't invent the concept of free software!

which is true, but ignores the fact that he's been, by far, the most important person to spread and defend it.

I tend to disagree with some of his other social/political opinions, but he is spot-on when it comes to software freedom and technology in general.

Almost all arguments against free software boil down to either plain ignorance or bad faith.

>>1000

While there is no direct evidence about either RMS or any member of the GNU project being pedophiles, there would be absolutely nothing wrong with it even if it were the case.

I always wondered about that weird fucky faked interview and the CIA plane at the airport. It blows my mind thinking that this entire timeline of events with Assange could be a total fabrication. It would be nice if someone could create a pastebin/pdf/similar with high quality redundant citations (something like archive.is + wayback machine links). Perhaps I will go down the rabbit hole on the deepfake RT interview + the CIA planes and attempt to document my insanity in some pdf file or something for the sake of everyone who is wondering about this. If you’d like to open the rabbit hole yourself start here:

The original faked interview (full): https://invidio.us/watch?v=zEMKrRXjA3U

Sections of the video which appear to be deepfake artifacts: https://invidio.us/watch?v=YUAOTFIXbp8

You can even go to the timestamps in the original video and find the deepfake artifacts for yourself. I’m kind of mind-blown by how brazen this is.

I wonder how bad things really are…

Was considering they maybe cut out a silence, and then spliced the footage rather than a hard cut because it was just one scene and the morph happened in so many places.

But >>998 shows it happening again in a sentence that doesn't look like it can be cut up. I'm now convinced this was a deep fake. Scary thought.

One possibility I can think of is that they cut out some text. Here's an example, completely pulled out of my ass just now: In the yuro mind he represents white trash, the drug-addled scum living in a trailer park that is deplorable and irredeemable.

This sort of editing is pestilentially common (usually they hide it with clever cuts to the interviewer) but doing that would be weird for "full" interview footage. My best guess would be that RT, which definitely wasn't neutral during the election, wanted to push the interview into a light that better lines up with their agenda, i.e. Assange said something that would have made him unsympathetic to Trump voters. Though truth be told, I can't read minds and even I feel like this is grasping.

It's been over a year since i've messed with a cell phone and never knew much about them anyways. it used to be you could buy a burner for $20 bucks that came with minutes/texts that also didnt expire every 30 days.

does this still exist?

walmart wants 20-30 for a phone and then 40 (with tax) every 30 days just to be able to text.

i am a vpn user that cannot get on: twitter, youtube, skype, periscope etc etc without providing a cell number so they can text me, which is all i need this for. none of the "free sms texting" sites have ever worked for me.

what is the cheapest solution here? a burner for 55 up front then 40/month? or is there some online text service that actually works? all i need is to verify accounts to get on social media sites.

apologies for such a basic question

: OP ' fag DOES> ' black cock suck ;

FORTH is the best language if you have to implement an interpreter in a couple days and you're the only one working on the project.

From a core set of assembly primitives you can build layer upon layer until you have a symmetric or cooperative multitasking operating system with a VFS or anything you can imagine.

At the very least its good for learning about direct/indirect threaded interpreters that can easily be extended and exposed to a host.

The community seems mostly like boomers that stopped doing robotics 20 years ago and have been "consulting" and snorting viagra ever since.

FORTH is what BASIC wishes it could be, those 1980's micros would be so much better if they shipped with FORTH.
