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!

I'm not sure why Ubuntu would seem unstable since supposed to be among the more stable desktop distros, at least below the hood. I haven't used it since version 11 or 12 though so I may be wrong.

Debian Stable is a popular choice for servers and is pretty rock-solid, but a lot of the software in its repository is pretty old. Fedora is also very stable and another good choice for servers since it's basically just upstream RHEL which is a commercial product, and has much more modern software due to being a rolling release.

Actually most of the popular distros are pretty stable. If you just want a nice user experience steer clear of the more hobbyist-oriented ones, though if you really want to learn how Linux works you can try Arch or my favorite, Slackware, which are both stable and easy to configure but will require you to learn to use the command line and can easily be screwed up if you aren't careful.

System resource use is usually more an issue with your desktop environment and/or window manager and stuff than under the hood. If you're don't want to hack together a UI with a WM and some other custom stuff I suggest switching to xfce or LXDE instead of whatever flashy crap your distro might come with out of the box.

I've used that site a long time ago. It certainly isn't a dayfly, so I expect it to stay around for another long time. But I think one should still use a variety of sites, even for the same types of content. We lose too much when the likes of megaupload, oink, and what dies. Content should be mirrored on all kinds of different sites.

That's all that matters.

I remember a lot of small "fun" software that would be mildly annoying/I considered funny, that I used on my own pc to look what would happen.

One was a cmd script that would just open itself and calculators until the pc crashed. Most people didn't know about ctrl+c at that time. I used it on an exhibit pc during a convention, a security dude (who had no understanding of computers) saw it and proceeded to beat me up for it. He never pressed charges or anything, once he thought I was sufficiently dealt with he just told me to fuck off. In retrospect I did deserve it if I'm honest.

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.

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.

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?

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.

The program 'php' can be found in the following packages:
* php7.0-cli
* hhvm
Try: apt install <selected package>

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.
