The source code for one of the best browsers ever, Opera 12, was leaked.

What interpreted languages are you using? What compiled languages are you using?
Right now I only know some languages very related to Unix, like C, csh, sh, and other tools capable of scripting.

Interesting.
Whenever looking up Go I always find this article:

Yes. I'd say Go is more of a replacement for Python (type safe, compiled, concurrent, faster, drastically better syntax, etc) or server-side JS (same reasons). Anyone saying it's competing with C/C++ or Rust is lying.

Actually I should have said statically typed instead of type safe. Sorry!

What text editor do you use? I typically use nvi (a vi clone) but I recently installed teco, just for fun. I've also used ed and ex in the past, to get acquainted with them.
emacs hurts my hands.

There are no scans of the instructor's manual to SICP, but I don't know if I should read SICP without the instructor's manual.

They think it's okay because they use a GNU operating system like GNU/Linux, on which autoshit works. It doesn't work on many other OSes.

Is RISC-V exciting? It would excite me, except for that I think capitalism won't allow it to succeed. Open-source hardware is a beautiful thing that should succeed.
I hope to read some of the specs when they're more finalised.

neovim accepts mouse input to move cursor and highlight text.
I don't know if I should be happy or disturbed by this.

Get a vps for 2$/year and install vpn on it yourself. You can even use scripts like https://github.com/Nyr/openvpn-install if you're lazy. Don't be cheap.

Admin here. If you want it I can email it to you. I still just don't feel like uploading it to anything like github yet. There's still some bugs and I think the code should be cleaned up quite a bit first before doing that.

I rather like this board script and would like to see if there's anything I could contribute, that's why I'm asking.
I'd suggest uploading the source to a git host of sorts, people interested in helping development could then debug and clean the code up themselves. It'd lift some burden off your shoulders in a way. Though, that's your choice.

I've left my email address in any case.

By news, I obviously mean Usenet.

2 guest@cc 1969-12-31T17:00:00
Never used Usenet. Every time I thought about starting it seemed like a lot to get into and I'd get the vibe that it was dying, so I'd just decide to wait for something new to take its place. If I'd known it would still be around after all this time I would have started over 15yrs ago.

I'm thinking about getting a new computer.
While I know nothing about computers, I spend a lot of time on them, and would like the best you guys can imagine.
I've heard good things about Linux, should I get it?
And I've heard good things about building my own computer, should I do that?
Also, is there a book I can read, preferably a .pdf, about how to start understanding computer hardware and software?

Sounds like you probably won't need an absolute top-of-the-range super gaming PC then. Look at the minimum specifications for all the games you play, and then make sure your new PC is much, much better than that. Not only so you can play the games at an acceptably high setting, but also so you can play even more high-tech games that will come out in the future.

Do you plan to put a DVD drive in it? If you don't, you're really going to struggle to install all the drivers if you put the PC together yourself.

You don't actually need a DVD drive for installing your shit, chances are the included drivers are positively ancient and you're better off downloading them from the manufacturer pages to begin with. I'm making good use of my $30 DVD burner because I'm a giant music faggot who likes CD's, but even then I did the installation with a 8GB USB drive loaded with the installation image and the Ethernet driver, the first thing I did was installing Firefox and using that to download the newest possible drivers for everything else.

Just a bit of incite -- If you know absolutely nothing about computers, Linux probably isn't for you. I mean this in a way that's not supposed to be an insult to you. The reasons most people have for linux probably wouldn't be of much relevance to the average user.
And like others have mentioned, game compatibility is an issue.

Regarding building a PC I highly recommend it. The process is extremely straightforward. They're simple to install, the only part that requires research really is the compatibility for the initial purchase. There are many communities however who can help you out, this one included.

Here's an example of what's wrong with software today.

* https://github.com/laneb/congruence_solver

Some guy made a program that takes an equation and tries x=1,x=2,x=3,.. up to some limit to check if it can solve it.

Like, the entire computation is literally a for loop.

That's fine but let's see what he did to acheive this goal...

The project is written in ruby, which is optimized for modern computers.
Which means that because of the abundance of resources it is not optimized at all.

ITT we create a python3 script 1 line at a time

Rules:
・ Use this character "→" to indicate each level of indentation (to make it clear, since python relies heavily on indentation)
・ Valid additions must be wrapped in [ cb ] tags
・ Only 1 line of code per post
・ Lines that would cause a crash are not allowed unless wrapped in an appropriate "try" block
・ Game Over if the interpreter enters an infinite loop
・ You cannot start a 1 line loop that would be infinite
・ Recursion not allowed
・ No quit()'ing

As a courtesy please try not to make 2 consecutive contributions, let someone else go after you.

Line 1: def somefunction():

I would have liked to quit it here, but we'll see what happens.
