Companies realized that most users don't know anything about technology and only care about looks. We are between the few who care about functionality. I wouldn't mind if we still had grey windows and no shadows/animations in the UI

Generally when I want to learn something i do some research to find the best resources and then focus on a single one. Jumping from book to book can be confusing. I think that the only way to really understand a concept is to apply it and that's why doing exercises is important. I guess we just have different ways of studying

Traps 04/09/2018 19:46:26 13790>>13792

OpenBSD is cool but it lacks features and is less popular so harder to find support resources and stuff, it's not available as an option with my hosting provider either although you could find ways to install it yourself. I'm not fully on board with their approach to security, its cool that they take it so seriously but some of the things they do to increase security just make the OS uglier imo.

Anonymous 04/09/2018 20:02:48 13792

FreeBSD is the best overall but OpenBSD seems fine for virtual hosts. The most important features missing in OpenBSD are: (1) lack of ZFS which is important for servers and (2) no TRIM support which can slightly shorten your SSD if used in laptop, none of which is an issue. Also DragonFly looks based though I haven't tried it to say anything.

What's the issue really? I hope that they integrate Azure Notebooks (which is a fine platform with absolute shit interface and no shareability the kind that exists on Github) and help in making Jupyter notebooks manageable with git. This is in their interest as they've F# (an ML on top of .NET; a good language overall) and an R distribution, that can be pushed in scientific computing.

PROGRAMMING IN C WITH TRAPS Traps 25/03/2018 00:17:48 11750>>11759 >>13000


So we have someone on here who wants to learn to program and I thought it would be fun to create a short guide for 4kev users who are new to programming to have some fun and hopefully learn something. Others are welcome to add to or criticize it. For this guide we will be using C. I want to stop your fresh new programmer minds from being corrupted by object-orientation, interpreters and dynamic typing, if you don't know what those mean then good, you have not been ruined yet and you can learn things the good ol' fashioned way.

Anonymous 28/05/2018 08:39:58 13000

reminder that if you're writing C from a Linux or Unix machine that you have access quick and easy access to the man pages for all standard functions. Always consult `man 3 function_name` when using a new function so that you can be sure of the side effects and errno conditions to expect.

Not checking for any reasonable and possible errno value out of a function call is a sin :^)

Ok here's the idea. A software where you can load high definition 3D scans of pornstars and play with them. You can make them say things with their own voice and use virtual reality to """interact""" with them. I'm sure something similar already exists but I'm talking about real girls, not simple 3d models

Nah man, most porn stars are ugly and this is just a limitation. I'm much more in favour of designing and modeling my own perfect girl from scratch.

Anonymous 18/05/2018 18:30:17 12936>>12937

Perfection is boring and unnatural. Sometimes you like a girl because she has something different from others, little imperfections

Traps 18/05/2018 18:45:20 12937

Well I've found you do need imperfections to make your brain believe it's real, perfection looks artificial and fake and so breaks the suspension of disbelief but I'd still rather design her exactly how I want, then she could actually be mine and nobody else's.

I'm most interesting in working on the CG part. I think if you can make something that looks realistic and convincing enough and cross the uncanny valley then it won't matter so much if her AI is shit. In saying that her "subconcious" intelligence should be good, by that I mean stuff humans don't think about such as spacial awareness as in not fucking walking into walls and shit in AR. As for speaking with intelligence I'm not sure it even matters. As for anime characters I think 3D models of realistic girls would be better. Anime girls seem better in anime but you never get to see them up close and if you were actually face to face with an anime girl with her eyes a few centimeters from yours I think it would just be weird and the illusion would be shattered esp since there is no detail. Also 3D models of 2D characters generally look bad, you would have to go with something like this:
