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.

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?

Speaking of PIDs, I found this simulation yesterday which explains the concept behind it in an interactive manner. It was more enlightening than my entire automation course.

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.

Hello, this is not a shill post. So I decided to create my own chan in python as a hobby (using the flask library) and this is what I have come up with so far. Just give me feedbacks here in this thread or there.

Currently you can only upload jpeg , jpg , png , gif, webm below the size of 4mb.

1. There should be more white space distributed evenly, especially the margins around the posts.
2. Text boxes in a form should be left-aligned.
3. Fonts across a form should be uniform unless denoting labels or sections.
4. Don't use <br> to separate posts. Use <div> instead.
5. Don't use <center>. Use a style with text-align: center or some other style.
6. Don't use inline styles if not necessary.
7. Don't use the full-sized images. Create thumbnails instead. Request the full-sized image on click.
8. Probably some other things…

I hope op does not follow this advice. It would make the site better in every conventional sense, but the unrefined unprocessed feel has charm that polished corporate sites don't.

 No.1547

The truth is that the message matters more than the format. If you're bringing people together for a purpose, it doesn't matter if it's a website or an IRC channel. Anyone worth a damn will figure it out and most those who don't bother aren't worth the effort it would take to include them.

Inclusion is a corporate game, gaming for numbers. Authenticity and purpose is what the rest of us have.

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

 No.1474

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?

It wouldn't be compulsory to give it an actual AI, could just be a chat bot with text-to-speech and speech-to-text (probably free open source libs availabe).
I mean just look at Eliza, (ripped from wiki)
>Weizenbaum regarded the program as a method to show the superficiality of communication between man and machine
>However, many early users were convinced of ELIZA’s intelligence and understanding, despite Weizenbaum’s insistence to the contrary.
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.

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.
