You guys are aware that everybody connects you to idpol transhumanists, liberals LARPing as AntiFa and cuckold fetishists, and that this is hurting your cause?
I lurked this website for a month now and i noticed a fundamental difference between the posters who are here to actually talk to others and the posters who link to 4chan to ask for support in some ridiculous bait thread where you just waste time.

I also noticed that you have a thread talking about if an imageboard would be better as a single-page-application.
I am currently working on my own imageboard from scratch. I am actually a web-developer and know my stuff, so (i hope) it won't be just another 4chan rip-off. I am going to use node - react - redux - sequelize for mysql - redis.
I am visiting different boards to gather ideas, but i see the same sorry state everywhere. I seriously want to make something good.

I wrote one in vanilla PHP with MySQL. It isn't especially extensible, however.


Please be bait lol


it's also so that people get drip-fed dopamine and keep coming back for more. If you gave them everything at once, they'd take a second to look, see everything, and leave.
If you make them scroll up and make it so that they never really are in control of what they see, they stay on your service longer because they have an incentive to keep pushing the stupid button to get a treat

Why do schizos think the internet is going to ever be shut down intentionally

i just looked up the statistic with the numbers, i don't know why they cut it, what >>8503 said sounds plausible.


It's not schizo at all.
* BGP vulns and IP take overs
* power grid
* supply chain attacks
* DRM :)
A state backed multi stage attack could seriously harm infrastructures and i would bet money that such an operation has already been outlined or is ready to go.


Schizos don't understand technology. The amount of schizos who have a brain hemorrhage when they see contrails in the sky and spaz out about "chemtrails" is a testament to that. Of course, many wrong and incorrect statements have sometimes a kernel of truth. While it is not the case that the entire internet cannot be shut down, government have compelled ISPs in their own countries to shut off internet access. This happened in Egypt, for example, way back in the Arab Spring. Governments more often than this, however, compel ISPs to block sites instead, and they accomplish this in a way that would usually require a VPN to circumvent. Pakistan, Turkey, and China are notorious for this.

Forgot to mention that there was a real-life test conducted by the military where they basically crop dusted some people. It is highly impractical. It would certainly be implausible that passenger airliners would be doing it, as the schizo chemtrail dipshits think, because where the hell would you hide the chemical tanks? Pilots and crew would have to be in on it because they have to account for weight on the plane. Many of these commercial planes have over 100 people servicing them. That is simply too many people to keep quiet.

Reminder that the “upside-down” from Stranger Things is literally real in a completely non-metaphoric way. Neoliberal central planning is gathering data on you to create a blurry mirror-image of you that they can use to predict your interests and tastes. You know how everyone has a story about how they were talking about something one day only to see ads about it later? The typical explanation is that your microphone picks up on things you say and recommends things based on the conversation, but this is wrong. There is simply a mirror-image of you that heuristically knows your dreams and desires before you even realize them or know they exist. A blurry version of you exists in a parallel universe, snitching on you and plotting on you for a hive mind of aliens.

Functional programming was a craze.

I've learned scheme and common lisp and scala and haskell in classes at uni/grad school and although in the 2010s the functional programming craze was huge eventually it died out and people just decided that low level languages like go and rust were better and that even java could be good if you add lambdas and first class functions/function objects to it. I was a full on FP cultist from 2010 to like 1-2 years ago.

After writing actual functioning apps in functional languages I've concluded that old fashioned OOP/java and now low level multi paradigm languages like go are probably better than the languages like clojure or haskell which force functional style and take up huge amounts of memory due to immutable data structures, despite the compiler writers best efforts. The concurrency benefits can simply be gotten by adding a few functional features to mainstream languages which they have already done, for example, C# and Java. Although C# does it way better imo.

I see literally no reason to write an app in haskell, clojure, scala, etc. over basic Java/C# or rust/golang

I think you are asking two different things but not too sure.

I will answer the memoization first a la
f(x) { if (f[x] == null) {f[x] = f(x)} return f[x];}

Haskell is semantically non-strict and the GHC compiler is lazy by default. This allows you to pretend like there exist an infinitely large data structure (list for single valued functions, map for multiple valued functions et cetra) that is populated with values you (will) need. When your program actually executes in hardware and needs that value, it will either utilize the contents of list / map / data structure or calculate (recursively or not) the value it need, store it into list / map / data structure and use it (transparently). There is no practical difference (as in how rough assembly language output would be generated) between your 'procedural' pseudo code and

memoize f = (map f [0 ..] !!)
fx = fix(memoize . f)

after all, turing machine and lambda expression should be equivalent right?

Now about the second part of the question regarding 'global' immutable, as you could readily understand the infinitely large data structure caching f's value is indeed immutable from programmer's perspective. Its contents are initally not 'realized' but it can, and it will be realized when you actually need it on runtime. You might be confusing not relying on mutability (side effect) while writing program and how haskell's compiler and runtime actually evaluates the code. If no side effect of any kind is not allowed while realizing computation, haskell or purely functional codes will not be able to do anything inside physical processor and that is not the point of 'purely' functional languages.

Look up prolog son, some implementations do tabling for free


Prolog is not a functional language.


>The reason people actually working in industry have been pushing FP meme and buzzwords like abstract type classes is because large problem domain that has been historically tackled within OOP framework turned out to be as easily 'approachable' in purely functional languages cheaply. Nothing more, nothing less.

except that a bunch of people in the 2010s didn't treat it like that, they acted like OOP was "BTFO", outdated, and that FP would cure cancer and world hunger. Saying FP is ok in some circumstances is not the same as subscribing to the cult of FP and the blogosphere of it and shit


what exactly is the value of this post? If you have valid criticism of haskell or MLs or frameworks written in those languages (which there are many and poor heap management is not one of them) share it with your personal experience or analysis. Why do you want to talk about nameless bloggers?

I know, you're asking yourself already, how the fuck are crypto's compatible with a leftwing communist image-board? Well, first of all, fuck you, we live under capitalism and as such must exchange and purchase under the current mode of production we find ourselves under.
Second, I would like some one to help me understand, exactly, how to set up a bitcoin, monero, what have you; wallet. I tried to set this up on my laptop but syncing with the bitcoin network is a huge MASSIVE bitch and took me months and I never got fully synced. Also, it takes a shitload of resources to work properly on my computer. I can barley do anything else.
So, my question is: What is the best way to get into bitcoin and use bitcoin and other cysto's like a boss? Am I doing something wrong? What are the best specs for btc and the like? As always, any help would be appreciated. Thank you /tech/!

Smart contracts, mining is getting removed, many other better features. It's not perfect, but Bitcoin is merely a store of value, while Ethereum is a effectively a whole platform running most of the other successful crypto projects.


>capitalism is when you buy things
i am in awe at this braindead comment


This thread is from the start of tech on bunker


Anybody use monero in here?

It seems cool.


bitcoins are not a viable currency and basically just a meme. You literally can't 'use' bitcoin for anything it was designed to do - the transaction costs are like $15 right now, it's slow, and it is completely public.

There are ok cryptos out there but not bitcoin.

did u try the official monero wallet gui?
