I've accumulated some decent skills in coding/debugging and I was wondering if any of you knew of any job boards that posted odd jobs for programmers to make a quick $ or whatever.


There were some code bounty programs for FOSS maybe they are still a thing?


I'll look that up. Thanks.


There's a full service dedicated to this but I heard that the companies totally dominate the code monkeys contractually and they regularly don't pay out


brief observations on fires
>1:Once a substance is ignited it cant be set on fire again

>2:fires spread based off their temperature, the hotter a region is the faster the fire spreads

>3:Objects will increase in mass after being set on fire

>4:an unbreathable smell will be created after an object is set on fire

>5: fires are observed to die when covered with something with alot of mass even if it is flammable

>1a: the reason why you cant set a burnt object on fire again is because the substance has already reacted with its environment in a matter that it cant produce an exothermic reaction again

>evidence: when I put an ignited match in water 5 times the fire on the match went out 100% of the time and couldnt be ignited again

torch bright light light

make go hot in brr brr yuga

food go torch go hot hot

torch normal no magic, torch just torch


yeah but some of the burned reactant is turned into gasses
isn't it literally like carbon + oxygen -> co2 + h20?
these things leave the original object.


Prove your hypothesis

>Yeah you'll also turn to ashes dumbass

Introducing the Waste Not Wood Ash workshop series where the Living Web Farms biochar crew takes a deep dive into understanding applications for one of our most common everyday waste products. As we deal with ashes from the last wood stove season and prepare for the next, discover practical everyday uses for wood ashes you can use year round. We’ll also explore the science of how and why wood ashes work in the garden, as an ingredient for natural soap making, or even as an ingredient in natural building materials. In part 1, Dan begins by filling in some of the gaps in wood ash research and sifting through some of the more and less useful info found on the internet.
If you have more clever ideas about how you use wood ashes around the farm and homestead, please share them in the comments below.

Does the failure of Linux desktop prove that communism will never work?

feels like a barely functioning toy compare to the commercial options. they argue over irrelevant differences, constantly reinvent the wheel, never innovate, barely handles the basics.

it has no profit motive to unite or to sort boring problems.

also slave morality would be doing the opposite of apple because they're the leaders.


>Choices on behalf of the user
Yes some choices are very, dare I say, stupid. There's a popular meme about linux UI/freetard graphic design and etc. I would say arrogance too, detachment from what users actually desire, mixed with a degree of narcissism "I'm gonna make my own le-arch-forkerinOS" instead of contributing to something already great


They are absolutely pathetic.
Never forget that Apple was in danger of going out of business in the 90s and they were kept afloat only due to the sheer cuckedness of their fans who kept throwing money at their overpriced and outdated (especially classic MacOS) products just because of the rainbow apple logo. And apple doesn't even treat these users well, sometimes even going to the extent of suing some blogger appletard users for sharing product rumours.
I don't think it's possible for there to be a more examplary epitome of corporate bootlicking than macfags. They don't just do it for free, they literally pay premium prices from their own pockets for it.


You can with third party programs, I use AlwaysOnTop.


I tried switching to Debian a few years ago and really liked it but no matter what I tried my G13 refused to work with it, and I rely on that too much. If only there was a G13 with on-board memory for the keys.

I used to dump video frames to jpg with mplayer, do some wild editing with shell loops calling ImageMagick and dc, then reencode it with mencoder.
This required a lot of disk space though.
Is development still stalled due to a lawsuit?

Interesting thanks

Is there a single based browser?




That's it


>Is development still stalled due to a lawsuit?
I don't think so.
>We would like to thank GitHub for standing up for youtube-dl and making it possible to continue development without dropping any features. We appreciate GitHub taking potential legal risks in this regard.

Yeah that's pretty gay, but, arguably it's less boot licky to have a group of devs democratically voted on to pass commits for code changes to the kernel and such. Also it's not like they are forcing us to use proprietary software. But i do agree


I don't get the capability argument. The only people that really suffer are NVIDIA fags. My AMD Ryzen will be unfazed.


>democratically voting on people
Please do not use words you do not understand. Elections are not democratic.


Wtf is this autism.

What do you think communism is retard. Can you faggots go for five seconds with out dragging out your gay ass tabkie bullshit. American elections under borg democracy are not the same thing as voting on people in and running your party you fucking faggots.

Work places should be run this way our mod team runs things democratically to some degree. This is just ideology. Stop it.


Arguably democracy is a very ambiguous word, but a marxist refutation of the represenativeness of OpenBSD's voting procedures would involve first examining potential factors like vendor pressure.


Democracy is voting to make decisions, elections have always been oligarchic in nature. You're operating on a misinformed definition of democracy that stems from an Orwellian inversion of meaning peddled by aristocrats in the late 18th century. Aristotle outlines clearly in his Politics that the people who actually invented democracy considered sortition to be democratic while elections have a tendency to select for people who are already in the upper levels of society.

I want to get an old thinkpad, like an x200 and make it into a secure, tor-only machine. What is the best way to do this? Something like Qubes OS or is that just a meme? Looking for solutions for full disc encryption, network card that connects to TOR alone, that kind of stuff.

Just pay $2000 to have someone else install Qubes on a thinkpad.


what's the market here? tech-illiterate schizos?




Maybe journalists who don't need to know how to partition a drive


They also have some hardware tamperproof evidence thingy.

Holy shit, Google and Apple may have unwittingly just destroyed the highly unethical false-sense-of-security marketing of encrypted-messaging apps to dissidents and whatnot.
For years, many of us here on /g/ who have 200+ IQs and who keep our computer gear in a basement Faraday cage alongside our anti-psychotic medication have been alerting the masses that you can't have a secure encrypted-messaging app on an endpoint device that's Swiss cheese. We've been talking about exotic baseband attacks, OTA SIM attacks, 0days against software running on the AP, etc.
But if the latest reports about auto-installed COVID apps in some states are true and not Qoomer-tier nonsense, Google and Apple are perfectly happy to give governments the keys to the kingdom for installing whatever the fuck they wish on a device. Poof go any assurances that dissidents have with regard to their encrypted-messaging apps.
Keep an eye on this. Shit is about to get lit in the neurodiverse community.


>Google and Apple are perfectly happy to give governments the keys to the kingdom for installing whatever the fuck they wish on a device.

Is this new? They always acted whatever way a local government wants them to.

That being said, source?


Those companies always could install apps whenever unless measures are taken to remove the preinstalled shit from stock devices, so it should not be a surprise that it is potentially used for the COVID tracker business. And there are a lot of allegedly secure encrypted message apps that are glow in the dark honeypots, so even besides the PUP installation shit, problems are already existent about security. Just don't use modern phones, if one has to do shady work or so.

kill yourself boomer

Looks like you never used a mouse with a short wire. I still dread the feeling of trying to move the mouse but getting stuck.


>we will come and steal the headphone jacks out of your life
Bourgeois degeneracy. Pay more for less (quality).


USB extension cables are still a way better option.
They sometimes come with a wireless mouse :^)

What programming languages do you guys use? I'm mostly Python, Java, C#, C++. Used to like functional programming but IMO now that regular OO languages have alot of function features like first class functions its not as big a deal to write code in a pure functional language like lisp or haskell, better to write regular python or something and occasionally write some functional-styled code

These days I only write Python and shell scripts. Haven't found anything better than Python for personal projects.
Used to write a lot of C, C++, C# and Java. I still hate Java.


Python is the best language for personal project IMO, unless you specifically want to experiment with a language of course. Django specifically is incredible for APIs.


What language would I use to automate stock ordering and trend following?


I would just use some Python libraries for making HTTP requests and parsing responses. Requests + Beautiful Soup for example. Both things you mentioned are very trivial until some stupid bug makes you order a ton of stocks over night.


I imagined it be easy, especially since the place I order isn't very busy, I'd need to also make it so the bot wouldn't go past a certain budget
