Do any of you know PHP? If so, do you have any recommendations for learning it? I'm not new to programming or web development in general, but I started learning Node instead of older shit like LAMP.

I'll have to do my homework but I wonder how bad it really is security-wise. I did some challenges illustrating how badly a PHP script could be on this level (XSS, bad input filtering, etc) but those are obvious ones and I'm sure there is plenty of libs around to solve this, not to mention complete frameworks.

I don't know anything about how common exploits involve the php binary itself or if it is just a collection of bad practice / poorly thought API choices giving PHP its bad reputation

I got somewhat comfortable with PHP by maintaining and customizing our imageboard software. I also learned Python originally by maintaining and customizing a chatbot. If you already know a C-like language, picking up a project can be a good way to really dive in there. Of course I read some tutorials here and there, but mostly I used manual pages to learn the specific things I needed to do.

So I have no technical knowhow of the field myself, but ever since seeing photoshops like pics related for years I always thought it'd be a natural progression with augmented-reality waifus, when AR glasses as advanced as in Dennou Coil (instead of google glass HUD style) reach public market.

Do you think it'll be a thing?
Would you get a premade one or would you feel weird about having a generic clone and try your hand at a homebrew one?

You take it in small steps, learn as you go. Don't need the "waifu" to be free-walking to begin with, do like those simple card games and such that spawn a 3D model (seen through phone AR app) from a card thingy, conclude orientation of the surface you put it on by the angles of the card edges. First iteration would just be to spawn your image T-posing right at the camera without correcting anything, size or angles, just a waifu "hello world" to overlay something over video.
>Advanced hardware
Why would you use advanced hardware to prototype amateur stuff?
Just prototype it on a smartphone.

If you think you won't have to make effort, yeah of course it won't happen. You won't get results alluded to in the thread. But it's a start, and if you keep at it maybe you'll be the first to actually have something in that area when you apply what you learnt.

Everything is made by people.

Planned obsolescence – devices intentionally designed to break over time – has been getting really bad in recent years. Everything is disposable. Even when hardware works, you no longer get software updates, which can make a device useless because it'll no longer get security fixes or support for modern apps.

And haven't you noticed how, when a tech company comes out with a new product, they shit all over their old ones? Like "our new device is so awesome and fast, and our old one was so clunky and shitty by comparison!" But then a year later, they do the same process over again. And you're thinking… you bought it because people said it was good. But then the company that made it said it sucks. They do it to get you to buy the same thing over and over again.

When will this stop? Do you think everything will be disposable forever, or will there be enough backlash to planned obsolescence that will reverse this trend so that electronics in the future are made to last longer? People talk about "the invisible hand" of "the free market" but maybe government regulation is required to stop it.

An example of this is how my friend's phone battery wouldn't last very long, so he bought an entirely new phone, even though I told him I could replace the battery if he bought one on Amazon (and they were really cheap).

Never, not under Judeo-Capitalism. People these days go on twitter and faceberg and either repeat the thoughts of others or only post their most basic feelings and impulses. Pattern recognition is forbidden, ground out of them by (((social pressure.))) Nobody rose up en masse when batteries shrunk, when aesthetic became more important than durability, or when the software became bloated and unusable shit with flat-design bauhaus GUIs. Nobody will ever rise up en masse because most people don't and won't care about phone quality so long as it lets them interact with the blasted hellscape that is modern social media at all times.

Your whole post is a mess, but I'd like to focus on one particular point;
>flat-design bauhaus GUIs
This tells me that you only know what bauhaus is because of that 4chan screencap that /co/ loves to spam.

The whole philosiphy of the collage was "all substance, no style". The point was to strip away aesthetics in favor of functionality and durability. If you handed in any modern GUI, hell, any modern technology to a bauhaus professor they'd fail you on the spot.

Even if you treat it well, manufacturers will drop support so you don't get upgrades and eventually stop getting security patches to encourage buying a newer model. I'm grateful to the guys who develop custom ROMs so I can keep using my first smartphone like it's new.

 No.1410

I think this is somewhat related to planned obsolescence, but it feels rare that a software "becomes lighter" or somehow uses less ram and cpu after an update. It feels like software producers assume you're updating your computer with every update and don't they spbt code like someone with a 2 year old computer could use it.

I'm currently in the process of trying to merge my active directories into my backup folders, but it's not going that well. Active folders have grown differently than the backup tree, without neither being more "correct".
E.g. sorting images based on why they were saved (aesthetically pleasing, lewd, funny, etc) or the contents.

How do you manage your folders of saved things? Any tips?
How do you deal with things that could belong in multiple places at once and no particular one is more correct?

One interesting thing about open source software is that you can fully replicate an existing solution, modify it, and use it almost immediately to solve your problem.

When we look at open source hardware, we see that, yes, the same principle appears to apply, but it is missing the manufacturing component. Whereas a shell script in the software world might produce a binary that you can use, the hardware world doesn't have the same type of tool.

>From where should I source the parts to build the product?

>How do I assemble the parts once I get my hands on them?

By answering these questions, we provide the _full_ open source hardware solution that many of these open source hardware projects seem to fail to specify.

However, once we specify this information, we enter the real world where political forces exist, and simple sourcing information can immediately disrupt a supply-demand equilibrium. A solution that was previously economically viable through specified channels immediately becomes nonviable, something with which the open source software world doesn't have to deal.

My question is

_What will have to occur to bring the flexibility of the open source software world to the open source hardware world?_

 No.1379

Until you can instantly duplicate and send parts for hardware over the internet, just as you do with software, it cannot be as flexible as software. All you can do is give the schematics freely and let people replicate it if they so choose.

I would like to make an imageboard but not sure where to begin. If I get a LAMP stack running, how can I effectively install vichan without bugs? I have tried several times without succeeding because either posts do not work or the domain does not readily map over a raw IP address.

>the domain does not readily map over a raw IP address.
What exactly do you mean by this? I am not a vichan expert at all but that sounds like it's not a problem with the imageboard software.

If you have control of the domain, you should be able to point it to a single IP. If you are trying to run an imageboard on a computer at home, where your IP might change, then dynamic DNS is, as far as I know, what you should be looking at.

I'll snuggle up in here as well as a thread freeloader if that's okay with you OP, better than having two just slightly different threads on kind of the same subject.
I wouldn't want to host a chan, but I've wanted to try out writing my own board software for a while for fun and to explore concepts and stuff. I've yet to touch on web dev though, just learning some general programming. How far into webdev would one have to pry to realistically be able to squeeze out a board? What stuff would one have to learn?

Also anybody have any chan features they've thought would be cool to have?

If you're vaguely familiar with how PHP is executed and you know how to set up other hosted software, you will probably be able to understand how to set up your own board. You will probably have to follow these steps.

1. Point your domain to the server that your board is hosted on (i.e., create A and AAAA records with your DNS provider). For Google Domains, their documentation describes how to do this (https://support.google.com/a/answer/2579934?hl=en).
2. Set up the web server (e.g., nginx) to which you just pointed your domain to direct requests to your CGI or FCGI software (e.g., DokuWiki).
3. Perform initial set up as necessary (e.g., adding SQL connections strings or creating an initial administrator user).

Are you using an actual internet-facing server or just trying to self-host on your home network? If it's the later then you're probably dealing with some NAT issues. Self-hosting generally isn't a good idea anyway.
