>Cyberpunk died when people started fetishizing dystopia. People do understand that cyberpunk is supposed to be a resistance movement, right?
There are at least a few holdout cyberpunk boards that still realize this. https://lainchan.jp/cyb/

"Anything that can be done to a rat can be done to a human being."
As technology progresses that quote only becomes more and more horrifying. I am not looking forward to the future.


people on lainchan.org (ante-schisma) have literally argued with me in the past that "it's totally valid to interpret cyberpunk as actually validating my ideal totalitarian society" Always nice to be reminded that not everyone is an idiot like this.

It would be nice if you were to elaborate more on your post and not just post random links that some people might not want to click on. It might come of as spammy :^)

Man, tomorrow's my last day already. Imaged alot of Windows PCs & Macs, but the best part was the week I spent setting up & configuring a brand new Linux server! I'll miss this place. Nevertheless, Fall is coming soon which means exciting new courses to take.

>>12 and >>20 were right. SO & other StackExchange sites are a huge help.

I modded a frontlight into my Gameboy Color. It's a really simple mod but I'm pretty happy with the results. I probably need to add a resistor cause right now it's a little washed out.

Please excuse the dirty lens. The protective glass over the lens on my phone's camera is busted and the dust is too deep in to clean.

Linux thread sushiroll here. I quit my job today and proposed developing a new system for my current employer (the one im quiting from) going from lots of programs that written for the Borland database and machines that are running on 256Mb of ram to the current year. I guess the silicon board may not be the place to ask but I have the tech side covered but should I work in the company or develop the product and sell it as a contractor?
Does anyone have any kind of experience with this sort of thing?
I really like the people I work with but I just cant deal with working with COM port and increasing page file sizes to stop crashes and deal with the question of "Why" day after day. Im not really sure where to ask ;_;


I have never actually worked, but if I were you, I'd surely go for contractor. It gives you more independence.

That wheel/peddle stand is cool. Did you make it or is it available somewhere?

What are the Comfiest apps you sushi rolls know of? iOS or android. Personally, I'm pretty fond of sudoku apps, a nice challenge but still relaxing.

Daygram. It costs like a dollar, but it's a great diary app. I used it everyday for at least six months before deciding to move to a physical diary. I just today uninstalled it and exported the entries to a word document, actually.

Any diary app would do, I guess. Putting one on your homescreen is a great and easy way to start journaling. I find it to be a great way to release my thoughts since I'm quite introverted and don't say much to others.


There's an app to scroll sushi for Android? Could i use in Overchan?


Duolingo just added a Japanese course.


Just when I think im done with that app, they pull me back in.

I cast my vote for 868-HACK. Its a turn based roguelike with resource management. You fight viruses and attempt to score points. Its kind of obtuse, but once you get the hang of how things work, its really good. On iOS and steam.

Does anyone have any horror stories of what's happened to them personally while exploring the "Deep Web" or just any type of trouble they got themselves in?


Yeah. I liked this sort of stuff, I was collecting "do not open!" links, shock sites and so on. And once saw a gallery of GIFs called "Semantic Virii", sorted by country categories. Thumbnails looked like weird collages, a lot like Picasso paintings I scrolled a bit and closed the page.
Years later I was researching illegal CIA projects like MKULTRA and "semantic virus" caught my attention. Turns out there is a way to construct visual sequence that embeds some sort of command, think micro-hypnosis. It consists of three stages: attention grab, cultural crack and "ordnance" which is actual command. Attention grab is simple, utilising natural desires (food, sex, etc). Cultural crack is complicated and depends on country of origin. It utilises norms and common imagery of particular society. Ordnance is usually a "trigger-response" pair which embeds command. I was happy that I did not scroll down to my country - who know's what it actually do to you.


The most fucked up thing I saw was a gif of some cp about a man fucking a toddler.

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.

Has anyone here ever used ConnectWise Automate/LabTech before? I'm looking to impress a company I had an interview with this morning, but having trouble trying to decide what direction I want to go in for a project.

Sounds just fine imo. I've been fiddling around with Ethereum for some time now. The dev team seems to like Go pretty much, ending all their github/wiki pages with

I'm constantly reading about programming in some form; it's fun. I've been meaning to pay ECMA-48 proper attention, but I still read other documents more lately.

I'm mostly working on a development tool as of right now.

>Trade secrets, info, tips, whatever. Programming isn't something that should be done alone in a corner.

Even on the wired, we're still alone like this.

Lisp and APL have already been mentioned.

Consider learning a machine code; you'll use an assembler for this. Avoid Intel.


Recently I've been learning Haskell and recently wrote myself a simple file encryption program. I'm pretty proud of it and I'm finding Haskell and the whole functional programming thing really interesting. I'm considering learning something like OCaml as well as I hear that's getting real popular.


File: 1495137459575.png (42.08 KB, 723x476, napalm-v0.4-1.png)

I released v0.4 of napalm, my ncurses-based program for doing ASCII and ANSI art. This version is all about adding layers instead of having a single canvas. You can now import multiple files without overwriting everything, for example.

It's written in C, and I guess I learnt a new way to initialise a struct in the process. It's interesting to note that, since the first commit (612 LOC), the number of lines of code has quadrupled. Whether that's good or bad, I don't know.

The code is here: https://gitla.in/chibi/napalm

An operating system that respects your freedom

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 installed Mint yesterday from a USB, only took about 10 minutes. The ISO should be fine if you got it from their site, but you might want to check out another writing tool. I actually used Fedora's media writer.


I used the default iso burner from the windows explorer. I read somewhere that writing at 16x speed can sometimes result in a badly burnt disk. It seems unlikely but I guess I'll give it another shot.


I've used rufus and found it really good, made bootable usb of win7, linux mint, nas4free, arch and ubuntu from it no worries.

https : //rufus.akeo.ie/


Don't know what the hell was going wrong. I tried again yesterday and it went no problems. Can't connect to the internet through network manager or the command line though. Baby steps I guess.


>Can't connect to the internet through network manager or the command line though.

That's odd. I know with certain distros, you can't use non-free wifi firmware out of the box(Debian and Trisquel come to mind), but Mint should work out of the box with anything. If it's ethernet, that's an even stranger case.

Text going to the edge of the screen is pretty horrible though. Field of Vision may be more widescreen, which is why widescreen is better for media, but when it comes to text, focusing and not skipping lines is much easier, when the text doesn't reach too far out.


File: 1493992126357.png (11.29 KB, 558x347, OUTPUT.png)

Hmm. I personally find it the opposite; I normally extend the posting box out if I'm writing a long post because I find it easier.


Have you ever seen a book where the text starts and extends to the edge of the page?
If yes, it must be a horrible book.


it was a book in a art gallery that had ascii art
and the art wasn't horrible at all


 Books aren't quite the same though, as you have to allow for the bindings; you never get a smooth 180° angle between the pages unless it's like a done with ring-bindings. Another practical reason that books are portrait and not landscape is that stacking them on a shelf would cause them to jut out into the room. We have usually have a lack of floor space not wall space.
 Of course right to the edge of the page is a bit unrealistic, I shouldn't have said it. What I meant really was a comparatively small margin, about the size of one or two characters.
 Compact text is much easier to speed read though, so I can admit that it has some uses, even if it isn't my personal preference.

I hope it comes back soon.


I think it's ded and gone fellow rolls. From what I can tell there are people working on potential alternatives, and there are other sites out there where you can still grab animu. Unfortunately the database dumps were from 2016 but it's better than nothing.


may be an alternative, but I haven't actually tested anything from there yet though


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.
