not much reason to get one tbh unless you just wanna have fun and got the cash to spare which is why i got one now i only use it as a homeserver ig i could look for some cool diy project, but meh sounds kinda pointless tbh im more of a software guy than hardware guy hardware is just too much of a pain in the ass to deal with

Can you guys browse textboard.org? I got perma IP banned from the site because I wrote a spamming bot shell script and bumped half of the threads on the site I feel guilty now later the admin restored everything Have you ever done something wrong on the internet hikari?

does anyone know what happened to textboard.lol? I know the site was infested with underage memefrens by the latter half of its life but I was hoping to get back on to lurk older threads when I found out it didn't exist anymore also the first (and so far only) time I've been perma ip banned from anything was when I got auth on a cube 2 sauerbraten server and kicked a random guy on the server because I wanted the place to myself. after the server owner banned me for that I uninstalled and then reinstalled the game to see if that would unban me and it did absolutely nothing

Making the computer *yours* Anonymous 01/12/2024 (Fri) 04:54:10 No. 359 [Reply]
People tend towards ricing their desktops, but this is really just visual stuff. What kind of touches do you have to make the computer an extension of yourself rather than collections of other peoples software? I personally set the login PAM auth settings to have rootok as sufficient. getty logins run from uid 1 so you don't have to put in a password. Unprivileged users (including ssh) can't login without the rest of the authentication modules. Having a file that gets printed whenever a shell starts as a motd is pretty useful too.

How do I use computers?
7 posts and 3 images omitted.
>>
phones are addicting, i prefer comfy computers (but I have no choice other than using the smartōphone >>300 it's not hard!! just expose yourself to new things in computer... try programming, installing other OSes, messing with the bios... go on, explore the world!!
>>
C and Unix are the bread and butter of computing. Install a Linux or Unix operating system in Virtualbox, preferably a Debian disto (Linux Mint is a good choice) or FreeBSD (GhostBSD is good for absolute beginners). Don't jump into something like Gentoo, OpenBSD or Arch too soon. Then go through this book: https://www.linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php Just make sure you have a copy of your OS' manual as a handy reference. Once you've done that, pick the Scheme dialect of Lisp or C. Scheme is easier to learn and will teach you a lot about computing whereas C is hard but used in literally everything and you will have to learn it at some point. Which you do first is up to you. Lisp is a great choice for any beginner. For Scheme, go with Simply Scheme and then move on to SICP if you want to https://archive.org/details/SimplyScheme SICP https://mitp-content-server.mit.edu/books/content/sectbyfn/books_pres_0/6515/sicp.zip/index.html For C, just use the King book https://archive.org/details/c-programming-a-modern-approach-2nd-ed-c-89-c-99-king-by

>I broke the pc by moving the cable inside the computer you sure that it's broken? anyway yeah just like poster number 36 said buy a USB adapter for hard drives and plug it to any working machine if you use windows it will appear as a disk F or something i don't know how alphabet works in microsoft but it should be easy and straightforward >>36

here are the ports needed but I don't know what it refers too which cables? and their names

Where do you discuss programming online? Anonymous 10/26/2023 (Thu) 22:00:01 No. 240 [Reply]
I just don't know what places are good anymore... I used to be a regular on 4chan/g/ several years ago, but it's gone to shit so much that even I can't take it anymore and I haven't been able to figure out where else to discuss tech/programming online. Do you have any places where you go regularly? The only one that I use other than random subreddits for whichever topic is hackernews, but that place is just no fun at all
>>
Idk, I can barely find any good places to discuss anything anymore
>>
>>240 >Where do you discuss programming online? textboard.org lainchan.org are pretty ok
>>
>>240 Mostly lainchan and sleepychan /t/ for me. I think the alternative is joining some dicksword server, reddit, lobste.rs, or hackernews, but I'd rather swallow a whole load of salt water than do that.

>>240 LainChan is too humourless.

can you tell me what our OS need that other OS lack off. I heard games on linux run like shit, so we need something good like windows because it works well there
>>
>>227 Its not the OS fault that games dont work, because developers need to spend time porting things to make sure it does Making an operating system is more of an artistic endeavour than anything else
>>
we would call it 'the wire' like in experimental lain
>>
Sorry anons, but the fact that you so severily underestimate what it takes to write an OS pretty much guarantees that you'll never make one. But I mean, go ahead, have fun >>156 >emacs but modern The fuck is that supposed to mean? What does "modern" mean to you, and what are the charactertics of emacs you want to have? An editor that looks "modern" is achievable through emacs configuration (see the NANO project on r/emacs), an editor that is recent, trendy and extensible in a programming language that is "modern" is vs code (it's based on packages like emacs), an editor that is keyboard controlled and "modern" in a way could be neovim. >fundamentally integrated into the OS This is a completely unrelated request to the previous one, but just as vague. EXWM allows you to use Emacs as a window manager, so instead of your TWM you run emacs directly and it manages all your windows. The Acme text editor is very well integrated with the underlying plan 9 operating system; for example, iirc you can type the name of a system command directly in the toolbar, the press it with the middle mouse button and it gets executed on the currently selected text.
>>
I mean, It'd be cool but >>276 is also right. maybe we could make a simple command line OS to start like Osaka OS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYImR-wrTV0 of course that in of itself is a long ordeal. but it'd probably be more achievable at the current state unelss we just want to take a pre-exissting operating system and mod it that could also be done?
