/t/ for the Infinity Winter Cup 2020! Anonymous 11/23/2020 (Mon) 13:24:29 No. 1838 [Reply]
Hey there, /t/! We're in the process of organizing a new edition of The Infinity Cup or /icup/ for short, a virtual soccer tournament pitching various boards and imageboards against each other, and we're trying to find out if any of the boards that previously joined us wanted to reserve a spot in the final tournament. Since your team was already present in previous iterations, we already have both your roster, your kits and logos, so the only thing we ask of you if you want to join is the following: 1) Making sure your team has the correct number of medals (1 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze), which you can see from the wiki page; http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//tech/ 2) Making a thread over at https://anon.cafe/icup/ with your team's pledge, you just need to make a new thread telling us that your board wants in on the cup. Optionally) Assign player cards, roles and special strategies to your players, which can be referenced from the following wiki articles: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Player_Cards http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Rules http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Team_Strategies Optionally2) Change roster names and/or give us 3D models to use for your team, or new kits or whatever contribution you'd like. I hope to see you guys on the pitch!

Aricebo fell apart completely. Dish is completely shattered and all three towers, and the sensors, are down. Total loss. The worst part? It's had no funding for years, the US probably won't rebuild it, and the closest thing to a replacement is a Chinese one that isn't even as good. This would be the perfect excuse to fund a replacement. https://archive.is/B539k

Archive.org may be going down soon. There's a lot of stuff in there, since this includes the wayback machine too. What would be the most essential stuff to keep from it? Personally I know some old PC games that have become abandonware and are impossible to find (at least the demos) linger there. I'm sure anon knows about another important thing.

Windows XP/Server 2003/NT 5.1's source code LEAKED Anonymous 09/24/2020 (Thu) 22:54:14 No. 1405 [Reply] [Last]
So apparently the source code of Windows NT 5.1 AKA the shit used on XP and Server 2003 was leaked by the same fag who stole 2 terabytes of stuff from Nintendo two years ago, and it was uploaded by the same Discord circlejerk that has been leaking random stuff from Nintendo (>>>/v/69748). Here's the original (now defunct) thread on 4/v/: https://arch.b4k.co/v/thread/525864626/ And the MEGA link posted there: https://mega.nz/file/PdhxBSZD#w-O3C-BAMwE4E02qPn_fSdTivILcE8hzk9PeyoXg7wU Archived /g/ threads because they seem to be the only fucking place on internet talking about this: https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/g/thread/77879263/ https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/g/thread/77874231/ (at least they have some interesting screenshots and links) Bonus: A collection of past Microsoft leaks Magnet link: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:cec41d87d329822ea9b05c4f6c0dff7d29514d59&dn=Microsoft%20leaked%20source%20code%20archive%5F2020-09-20 Torrent: anonfiles.com/Ffn8u2Yaoa/Microsoft_leaked_source_code_archive_2020-09-24_torrent Limetorrents: https://www.limetorrents.info/Microsoft-leaked-source-code-archive%202020-09-24-torrent-15247398.html

>>1723 yeah that's kind of sad because if we had 7 now it would be really useful. And by the XP DE I mean pretty much all of it, not just a skin if that makes sense. Obviously I don't really know how all this stuff works though, but having for example the XP Control Panel would be really neat. not just a skin but its own package. XPDE or something haha
>>1723 >There's lots of WinXP skins for xfce that are plenty good. The only one that's even close to perfect is Chicago 95, all of the others have weird idiosyncrasies here and there that detract from them, and there's no gtk2 theme that can be easily ported between desktop environments that perfectly replicates the look and feel.

Flatpak and Friends Anonymous 06/10/2020 (Wed) 10:02:59 No. 413 [Reply]
What's your opinion on the concept of these newfangled package managers having sandboxing, enabling backwards compatibility and having a one-build-fits-all-distros mentality? Is it bloat, or the right way to go about solving such problems? Personally, I use Flatpak to handle games, so my system doesn't actually have any 32 bit libraries installed by my distro's package manager, anything 32 bit's managed entirely by Flatpak, separate from everything else. As well as isolating propietary software, since most games are, and Steam too. Since I don't use programs with Qt 5 much, I've decided to get rid of the ones I've installed natively and installed the ones I do need on Flatpak, that way I can get rid of Qt 5 as well.

>>1322 It's amazing how many issues go away just by using the damn source code. Although while better then most the AUR is still garbage. compared to ebuilds AUR lacks major functionality like: useflags, masks, overlays, sandboxing, compiler options, good dependency resolution across the board. You could probably manage like one or two applications from the AUR but you have to get into a mindset of "what is this pkgbuild going to do to my system?" where you will constantly check what the pkgbuild contains in it's instructions just to make sure it doesn't do something like... replace your running ffmpeg version and all the codecs it contains with a git pulled version making anything with audio from official repos unusable. **this happened once and i hated every second of trying to fix it* Overlays are so much better.
>>1324 This might be acceptable for desktop use. I ran into some dependency issues trying to create a very specific development environment. And god help you if you need packages built for anything but x86_64. I just about ragequit life when I found out the version packaged for the arch/release I needed was the only one suffering from a critical bug, but Debian's maintainers decided it "wasn't a security concern", so they refused to just package any of the versions that had been released in the last few years. It ended up just being easier to rewrite a couple files so the parsing bug didn't cause it to fail, but I got lucky the tags it was failing on were non-essential. Still, this is all a huge pain in the ass, even on personal desktops. Like >>1325 said >Overlays are so much better The issue of dependencies has practically been solved by Gentoo (and to a lesser degree, Arch) but we've still got these really popular distributions run by faggots who insists "no, really, you need this release cycle for stability". All their bullshit has ever done is make me do something rash to try shoving a square peg in the round hole they gave me, which is very much unstable. Conversely, I've never fucked an Arch or Gentoo install. At least, not for package management reasons. I'm willing to accept that fucking an install is my fault, but I think Debian and Ubuntu deserve partial blame for making the most straightforward solution difficult in the name of holding the hands of newbies who probably won't touch the terminal to begin with.
>>413 Flatpaks are a security problem. If one of the dependencies that's bundled inside the flatpak has a vuln in it, even if it's been patched, then until the flatpak dev updates the flatpak to include the patch for that dependency, it'll be vulnerable. Just use the package manager included with your distro. Learning how to use apt and pacman isn't hard.

How are the cool kids making nitric acid at home these days? All the commercial sources are illegal because of McVeigh.
Well, since the chemical formula is HNO3, then you must grab Hydrogen, Oxygen and of course nitrogen out of the air and squeeze them all into a bottle to get nitric acid.

Invidious development halting Anonymous 08/01/2020 (Sat) 22:22:29 No. 826 [Reply]
https://omar.yt/posts/stepping-away-from-open-source https://archive.fo/78QBm https://web.archive.org/web/20200801221530/https://omar.yt/posts/stepping-away-from-open-source Starting September 1st, I'm shutting down the user-facing portion of https://invidio.us and stepping away from development. If you have an account on the site, you can export your data here, which will allow you to import everything to another instance or self-host. The API will continue to function until October 1st, to give time for any services relying on it to migrate to other solutions. If you're a patron on Liberapay, I would urge you to switch your donation to iv-org, as that will ensure it goes to the stewards of the project going forward. At the time of this writing, the main Invidious instance has roughly 35,000 users. It's difficult for me to even begin to think of those as actual people, and not just a number. At that level, the amount of feedback I receive, which I would consider rather small in comparison to others I've seen, is overwhelming. It's demoralizing not being able to respond to all of it properly. Even more so when I've received something that deserves an involved response, but I haven't had the time to reply, which counter-intuitively means the best comments are least likely to receive any response. To echo antirez: it's crushing not being able to be "there" for people. Lately, I've felt myself withdraw much more in return. For any project though, especially something that requires maintanence, it's difficult to actually "unplug" and mentally recharge. Turning off notifications has helped, but it's definitely taken its toll. For any project of a certain size, it's more important for the lead to be a manager more than a developer. As an example, it's mostly well-known that Linus Torvalds hardly does any coding anymore. At that point working on a side-project becomes a job, and not one I particularly enjoy. If I had known that I would've ended up in that position on a passion project, I'm curious if I would have made it open-source, or started working on it at all. In either case, I consider myself extremely lucky to have people that can manage the project in future, and can only imagine what it would be like for someone without that luxury. I can't help shake the feeling that somewhere, the software I use is being developed solely by volunteers who would rather quit, but don't have the ability to say "no". This post has been delayed for that very reason, especially when so many people have given so much, and I feel they deserve a proper goodbye. At this point though, I can't find the strength to leave on better terms. I don't want this to read like I somehow feel underappreciated or underpaid. I'm not motivated by praise or money. After working on the same thing for three years, I'm just tired and ready to move on.

It's funny how lots of the problems ITT come from a lack of knowledge on using linux/gentoo instead of direct issues with cloveros. cloveros itself is fine, but i feel it's probably only good for people who actually know what they're doing in the first place. Otherwise you get complaints from people stating theres a problem with cloveros when in reality it's working fine, they just don't understand why. this is generally the problem with aiming at less knowledgeable userbases >>1495 >cloveros fails at multiple monitor look up how to use xrandr.
