Do any of you guys have experience with phone/tablet replacement parts from China? I need a new digitizer and it's pretty cheap to get one from AliExpress. I have the device disassembled and I can easily put it back together when I get my hands on a new digitizer, I just want to know if there is any reason not to order a new part from China.

I found my old Technics sl-1500 in my basement and would like to get it running. I need to replace the needle and it is missing the resting hook for the arm. Does anyone know a needle that will work for this turntable and if the rest is replaceable? I am also assuming the best place to find a receiver is Craigslist or pawn shops?

He wasn't a traitor. He was never a US citizen and never owed loyalty to the US so he can't have committed treason.

Also he's charged with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion over something that happened in 2010 but has a five year statute of limitations. What actually happened was he accepted a data set from someone who legally had access to that data set but did not have permission to publish or share said data set.


Also without C code there would be no Windows, Unix, Linux, Mac OS or any of that shit. Learn to code. Without C, no C++, Without C++ no fun languages like Python and everyone would be writing shit in retarded assembly language.



Without C++, Python would be written in other languages. There are other languages that are fine to use for writing compilers and interpreters.

It's a mystery


if you were to create a new programming language, what kind of new/unknown debugging methods would you have for it?

3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


The field of debugging is complete. I can't imagine any new kind of print statement that one might need. Every existing language supports comprehensive string and number printing. More modern languages support printing of arbitrary data types, including arrays and structures. I've seen some languages that will even print out function definitions. Everything a person could need printed can already be printed, there is nothing new to add.



<debugging is just about printing data




This, when a Common Lisp program crashes you are dropped right into the debugger. You can fix the source code, re-compile it and have your program running right at the point where it crashed. Not to mention that the debugger is running in Lisp as well, so you use the same language for debugging as for writing the code.



Don't forget *debugger-hook*.


I'd provide a graphical map of all instantiated objects that could be navigated.

Any government can just ask the VPN businesses if they need any info on their users. Also a majority of VPN's log everything. The only way to get a good vpn is to create your own in africa.


torrenting popular stuff when people get paid to report IP addresses seededing the torrent.


not using Tor or something equivalent is a crime against the internet. if there's noone to flex the right to not be identified, the internet will slowly become botnet, as it has as cuckflare took over most of it. VPN is okay but you're putting all your trust into one person who is a capitalist cuck and can be bought



Yet anon, yet



Ulbricht was first connected to "Dread Pirate Roberts" by Gary Alford, an IRS investigator working with the DEA on the Silk Road case, in mid-2013. The connection was made by linking the username "altoid", used during Silk Road's early days to announce the website, and a forum post in which Ulbricht, posting under the nickname "altoid", asked for programming help and gave his email address, which contained his full name. In October 2013, Ulbricht was arrested by the FBI while at the Glen Park branch of the San Francisco Public Library, and accused of being the "mastermind" behind the site.

To prevent Ulbricht from encrypting or deleting files on the laptop he was using to run the site as he was arrested, two agents pretended to be quarreling lovers. When they had sufficiently distracted him, according to Joshuah Bearman of Wired, a third agent grabbed the laptop while Ulbricht was distracted by the apparent lovers' fight and handed it to agent Thomas Kiernan. Kiernan then inserted a flash drive in one of the laptop's USB ports, with software that copied key files.



why would you ever put your real name in such things and why was the laptop not properly secured

Why the hell is the GNOME shell written in Javascript?

I thought it was just the extension engine but no, Javascript has literally permeated the entire thing, this is completely absurd. No wonder it's so slow.

That's not even the worst part, the whole display server and kernel I hear is written in C. What weenie came up with that idea?

Well considering Rust and D didn't exist at the time it was a sensible choice.

55% of it is in Javascript, the rest is C (although most of that I'm guessing is just code from Mutter).

With all the /tech/ fags wanking about Linux-based systems and backwater OS's that I've never heard of, it got me thinking about what games /tech/ plays. You don't really have much vidya gaemz options unless you have a separate Winbloze system on the side. Or does /tech/ even play vidoe gaem at all?

GNUJump and cowsay



Try looking it up first before being retarded:





>muh locale

This is how i know none of you retards even bothered looking up the problem.


[/code]LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine /path/to/game/game.exe[/code]

If this doesn't work then you probably need to generate japanese locales locally on linux's side, this isn't an issue with wine because this isn't wine's job.

This is upto the locally implemented locales on your system.

A good way to check if you have locales set properly is open /etc/locale.gen and check if you have JA_JP locales uncommented.

If they are, good. If they are commented then you'll need to uncomment thema and run locale-gen.

I've literally never had a single problem with a japanese game in my fucking life.

If you still have problem then you might just be missing font files which you can get by downloading/winetricks cjkfonts

As for codecs, stop using retarded precompiled stable distros that packages out of date crap



You missunderstand newfags, they don't want to talk about libregaming or actual native linux games, they want to talk about how hip and l337 they are for using a wrap layer to run shit that most winfags already can run fine but with a shit ton of overhead.



He didn't say GNU/Linux games. He said, and I quote, "games on GNU/Linux", you pedantic fuck.

For those who don't know, LynxChan is a new chan engine I have been developing for the past 4 years or so.

Today I started 2.2 beta. It's main feature is the comeback of archives. Not only threads can be archived manually, but also limits for replies can be set for threads to be archived automatically after these limits are passed and the thread is pruned.

On a smaller scale and a more technical aspect was the optimization of ram usage. It should have use 80% to 75% less ram. Boot times have been improved too. And the json api have been merged into the form api too, which should make for a more consolidated api.

File: b7f1e3ec2c02968⋯.png (147.9 KB, 940x875, 188:175, ClipboardImage.png)


looks amazing with javascript disabled. On topic of that thread, "what new features" you should add?

1. try reducing the response time below 5000ms

but to be less harsh, i just think it will be very hard to find an audience for a site like that. if people want some kind of decent-looking forum there is already reddit.

image board users dont mind the raw, slightly-ugly-but-works design of these sites and while they have evolved slightly over years, they follow a similar formula. Futatsu deviates too much too quickly. Actually i think you need a design like these to even be considered an imageboard at this point. its basically a convention that you cant break.

this is no defence of lynxchan however. digging through the source it uses MongoDB to store files (gridfs) which is never going to scale in the long run. It also uses old javascript standards and is literally "callback hell". While it is "documented", its not using something like JSDoc to have documentation automatically built from the source and define inputs/outputs/descriptions in specially formatted comments.

And after all, the only reason people are making other imageboard engines is they dont like the idea of "tinyboard+vichan+infinity+openIB". Its a combination of an old cruft of code from 2012 and dodgy hacks accumulating over the years. People dont want to rely on the squished together work of so many deprecated projects and disappeared or retired contributors, even if it is still working for sites like 8ch.



>huegwtf empty space at the top


ok dude



Wow, you actually fail to understand sarcasm, Lynx. Delete yourself.



I guess other anons are right on this one.
