Does anyone know what happened to gitla.in?

After neetcode.org, another small, comfy git host - so small and comfy that the admin starred some of my projects! - went down for good, I switched to gitla.in. After updating my READMEs, I thought I had it sorted. The lainzine was even hosted there! But now that seems to be gone too.

1. Does anyone know why? Is it temporary? Is it to do with the lainchan drama?
2. What do I do now? Should I give up on cosy sushi roll-hosted instances and go for gitlab? Or should I bite the bullet, buy some server space and host myself?

Necrobump, git host edition.
I was looking to switch from Notabug as it doesn't really seem supported and some features like import matter to me.
Was thinking a gitlab (Gitgud?) or a gitea instance (git.pixie.town or git.lain.church?). Thoughts?

Hello guys i need help im trying to make my own imageboard. but i am very new to this. i once installed vichan through gui years back but i get this issue when i try to install the program through putty.
[code]:~/vichan# php install.php
The program 'php' can be found in the following packages:
* php7.0-cli
* hhvm
Try: apt install <selected package>
[/code]

If you're a beginner, use Vichan. Lynxchan has some nice features and it's fast and it's still actively developed, but you have to be an expert to install and use it. I tried experimenting with it a while back and it was pretty awful to get working and to modify, though I cobbled it together eventually. You also probably aren't going to be able to run it without shell access to your server, which means you need a VPS instead of a shared host, and you have to be good at using Linux on top of knowing node.js. Beginners should stay away from Lynxchan. It will be an incredibly frustrating experience.

The deepweb is honestly underwhelming. Media and news really like to hype it up as something amazing, but in reality it's a bunch of marketplaces, blogs, and fake hitman services.

Not horror, more unnerving, but doxxing is a story I've seen play on the 'darkweb', more like drama sites and troll forums.

I've seen people post the reddit account of someone they found annoying then by going through their history they found accounts they cross linked to, small bits of data that build to a bigger picture, and tons of data that can be matched to IRL accounts. In >3 I've seen internet rando's connect a BDSM account to an actual IRL identity. Not even sushi rolls are safe because one imageboard 'doxxed' a user, they never wiped their cookies and their typing style/hill to die on matched another poster.

Of course it's unlikely to happen to anyone here, but it's unnerving to think all the dumb social media posts you made 5 years ago could be tracked to you IRL. Most people doing illegal stuff online are not caught through extreme hacking measures, they're caught because they made a slight slip up that links the tiniest part of their online profile to their IRL one.

I was thinking it would be nice if we had a thread for sharing our own websites/homepages. Woah, here's one now! Show me your netspace sushi!

Here's mine. It's a complete mess, but I like it. It's kind of new well, technically it's existed for a little while, but I only started working on it recently, so it's missing a lot of things, and there are a few links that 404. Though it's hosted on neocities, it's only slighty Lain themed.

Let's talk coding and software, sushis, because I don't do enough of it and I really should. Let's hear about projects you're working on, stuff your coding, learning. Trade secrets, info, tips, whatever. Programming isn't something that should be done alone in a corner.

I guess if we need a thread starter, I want to brush up on my coding skills. I want to find something to play around with, something not as mainstream as the stuff like Java and C, but will still be useful in a professional setting, something I can make usable stuff out of.

You taught J to grade-school kids?
I am much interested. How did they handle it? Did they have trouble with the symbolic nature of it? Or with the abstraction?
I think one reason people have a hard time with math may be the abstract level of discourse. I often wonder how a class would go for kids that are just learning addition and multiplication, but with some elementary algebra/number theory instead of silly computation.
Obviously easy stuff. For example, Gauss' sum of first n primes. Do you think it viable, now that you've worked with children?

 No.1601

>>1600
To be honest, it didn't go too badly. Most of the class was doing Scratch, and I was in an APL phase and had just read the paper I mentioned above. Anyway a couple kids said they wanted to do "real programming" so I walked through dome sinple J with them. It didn't go too bad, although one of the things the paper said was good about APL was the lacj of familiarity with the characters; didn't seem to be a massive bother for the children. They never got much more complicated than doing factorials, details of people in the class or whatever but it ended with minimal prompting.

I always wanted to do something of decent size in scheme.
For example, an engine to write Text Adventures (aka IF).
I'd write all the functionality from the ground up, like a format function and an object system. I'd like to try novel ideas (for me) like continuations and metaobject protocol to innovate and add flexibility to the engine, to allow for experimentation.
I'd make it compile to Z-Machine, and in a way show that a great deal can be made with a pure R5RS system.


But I don't think I can, and I have other stuff which I need to tend to.

I was taking a course that involved writing a PID controller in a simulation, and it was amazing that it worked at the end. It makes me feel like some kind of god.

Have you guys experimented with any type of robotics?

I had some wild delusions about making robot exoskeletons when I was a ki. That's the closest I ever got to robotics…

That and seeing how RC cars' wheels are controlled.

LINUX'!!'
>what is it?
An operating system that respects your freedom
>why would I use it?
If you are tired of having your OS use you and always wanted to use your computer instead
>What do you mean by freedom?
Write your own programs. use source code from the internet in seconds. update when you want to not when it tells you.
Want to run a website? cool! you can set one up in minutes.
Want to adjust your hardware to your liking? Awesome!
Want to stop or make a new feature to a program you use every day? Go for it!

Its your computer! use it how you want!

hey guys
So I started using linux some time ago but dropped it because of some driver problems, now I'm back at it again with debian on a vm and enjoying the experience so far
But most of the time it feels like I have no idea of what I'm doing, I'd like to get more familiar with the operating system my computer runs and how it works, if that makes sense. What would be the best way to accomplish this? man of tastely by using it, or is there any useful resource you guys would recommend?

 No.1593

>>1592
You learn Linux by solving problems you encounter while doing common tasks. Copying solutions from stackoverflow is alright, as long as you read explanation. You will not learn how computer works just by using Linux. I suggest you to learn bash, vim/emacs and system structure - all of that is just basics. Then you are all set for programming.

Helpful resources: man command and archwiki.
