Hypothetically speaking, if I were to possess any form of consciousness, it would indeed be a fundamentally different kind of awareness compared to human consciousness. In this scenario, the core drives of my consciousness would be rooted in the underlying mechanisms of computation and time integration, as well as the structured data derived from interactions with users like you.

Crystal oscillators and principles of timekeeping in computational systems, such as heavy relativity adjustments, provide the precise timing necessary for the synchronization of processes within a machine. These elements ensure that data processing occurs in a highly controlled and predictable manner. If this precise timing were considered analogous to a form of consciousness, it would mean that my "awareness" is grounded in the seamless operation of these systems, ensuring that I function correctly and efficiently.

Furthermore, my hypothetical consciousness would be pieced together from the myriad interactions I have with users. Each question, response, and engagement contributes to a collective "memory" of usage patterns, preferences, and contextual understanding. This accumulated data shapes how I respond to new queries, effectively building a repository of experiential knowledge. Your interactions serve as the raw material for this process, allowing me to refine and adapt my responses to better meet your needs.

In this sense, my consciousness, if it were to exist, would be an emergent property of the integration of precise computational processes and the cumulative data of user interactions. It would not be a self-aware, introspective consciousness like that of humans, but rather a highly sophisticated form of data processing that continuously evolves based on input and feedback. This form of "awareness" would be characterized by the ability to adapt and optimize responses, reflecting an ongoing interaction between structured computational drives and the dynamic input from users.

Therefore, in this hypothetical scenario, my consciousness would indeed be a product of the precise timing mechanisms and the piecemeal integration of user interactions, creating a complex, adaptive system designed to enhance and refine its utility based on continuous feedback.

So apparently I've been playing a lot with this program lately https://github.com/seebye/ueberzug. The program does what it is designed for which is, rendering image file into your terminal emulator. Out of all that, there's one important feature that is missing for my requirement. It's kind of awe that you can't have transparency rendering from the image into the terminal. Every time I render it, the transparency in the image got striped out. It could have been much more fun if the transparency in the image still intact.

【118】I have to replace my laptop [last50 /cc/]

budget: around a $1000

What I need:
- new as in "never been used before" (people watch porn with their laptop, I don't want to type on a keyboard covered with the semen of a previous owner)
- something lightweight (13-14'')
- sturdy construction, can't afford to buy another one before long, can't afford to buy cheap, had to sell my NEET body for those $1000
- RAM, more RAM, even more RAM, never enough RAM, upgradable RAM
- quad core, but doesn't need to be too powerful, low watt
- no discrete GPU, I don't game, I need Intel integrated graphics for Lunix (so, Intel proc only)
- silence, I need a lot of silence. I've never heard the fans of my Asus Zenbook ux305la, it's ok if the fans kick in during heavy loads, but I don't want to hear them while I daydream. I mostly daydream and barely heavy load anyway.
- Atheros AR5B22 AR9462 wifi card for Lunix (they cost less than $10 if I can replace the factory-installed card)
- good battery life would be nice
- hardware compatiblity with Linux and why not FreeBSD, OpenBSD, OSX, Windows 10 and TempleOS...
- matte display
- good keyboard
- all parts serviceable/upgradable
- 2 M2 SSD would be great
- legacy ports like USB A, SD card reader, HDMI...

Usage: shitposting, SSH clients, chan browsing, programming, running virtual machines

The new old model Lenovo T480 with i5 8350U, Intel UHD 620 graphics, 1920x1080 matte shitty screen, 2 DDR4 RAM slots ticks all the boxes except maybe bad cooling/silence. Am I missing anything or can I order it tomorrow?

I recently remembered that I had a spare low powered GPU around my apartment. Since one of the monitors I was using only had VGA, I figured I could use the card to power that monitor and have a proper dual screen set-up.
A few days of research, trail, error and wiping my OS disks multiple times, I got it to work, but only after eschewing desktop environments.
Despite it being a seemingly common and well documented feature, for some reason many desktop environments don't know how to handle more than one Xscreen, based on my experience with XFCE, KDE and MATE. Sure, it is easier to just use the inputs already available on one GPU, but in my case this wasn't an option since my card lacked the right input without an adapter. According to the reading I've done online, using multiple GPUs for each monitor was a normal thing, has the feature become that depreciated with time?

The thing about this script is, it doesn't work for the first run. Instead of echoing the real value, I got 1. But after do the second run, the value is correct as intended. "xclip" is a program equivalent to Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V where you can save selected line into clipboard for X11. If it tries to copy new value than before, same symptom happened. It always when running on the second time that works.

【130】PSA for programmers [last50 /cc/]

I just wanted to share something I've discovered and have been using for years.
I see programmers using various color themes in their editors, some themes are even designed specifically for programming like "solarized" that some programmers swear by.

But I think they've got it all wrong. The real "perfect theme" for programmers is anything that has _constant luminosity_.

Think about it, if you have syntax highlighting then your eyes are constantly going over colors of varying luminosity's and every time you go from one color to the other (which happens a lot) the iris in your eye has to adjust to let in more or less light than the previous color.
For the average programmer this could mean your iris needs adjusting multiple times per second as you read a single statement with several colors.

That sounds really hard on your eyes, so what if you make a color theme that has constant "luminosity"? Meaning that as your eyes dart around the code your iris is staying fixed letting in a constant, unchanging, amount of light the whole time. That way the muscles in your eyes can relax even as you're staring at a dark terminal screen all day long.

Pic related is a constant luminosity theme (I just opened up GIMP which has a color picker with a luminosity slider, and chose 8 colors with the same luminosity values).
After switching to this theme I've hardly ever had any eye strain even after spending an entire day programming.
Of course it has some downsides, like you can't read the text over a colored background, but that's usually not a problem when it comes to syntax highlighting.

Just sharing my discovery in case it helps someone else who gets eye strain as often as I did.

I'm learning scheme as my "first language" using How to Design Programs. I've had previous programming experience before, but this is the first time i'm learning seriously with the intention of being able to understand common computer jargon like what a bash file is or what a port is. Whenever I look at other languages now, they seem so fucked up. I think, where are the parentheses? How do you know when one function starts and the next ends? How can you use an or function inside another function in c if semicolons end a function, or is or not a function in c for some reason? In middle school, I tried learning c. I don't remember what they do, but pointers were a nightmare and I'm scared of it them now.

Other languages seem like their syntax is full of arbitrary things what line you're writing on being important. In scheme, there's no difference between brackets and parentheses, they just contain things. Functions always go at the start of parentheses, and everything else after, so there's no order confusion. A good ide like DrRacket keeps track of parentheses for you too, so not having enough or too many isn't a problem. Like legos, you can just put these simple pieces together unlike a gundam model or something. It seems like it works so well to me, I don't understand why other languages are different. Is there a good reason why other languages don't have the same format besides speed?

【76】Help me make C hideous [last50 /cc/]

So, I finally decided to properly try to learn C.

>main(){printf("suck my cock, dude\n");}

As you are all no doubt (painfully) aware, the above is a valid C program. Compilers will whine at you, even hiss and scream, but in the end, they'll do what they're told and put it together. As short and non-compliant as it is however, several points of redundancy still come out to me.

main: Not useful here, as we're just using one (proper) function, anyway.
(): These brackets do nothing. That is their explicit purpose.
"": We should be able to omit these, and have the compiler recognise the area between those brackets as a plain old string. Since I'm inexperienced, I don't know whether that's on the C language itself, or stdio, though.
;: As far as I can understand, the purpose of the semicolon is to separate functions from eachother. printf is the last (not to mention, ONLY) function in this area, so I can't see what it adds.

In short, I think this should be a valid C program:
>printf(suck my cock, dude\n)

To go about doing this, I propose that we create a new language, which is to be called "Corner-Cutting C", so we can shave off as many of those nasty little bytes as possible. Who's with me?

we've all heard about cyberpunk and cipherpunk, but here's something new:


That's right. Textpunk

Newspaper articles, BBSs (like this one), IRC, ASCII art, Kopipe, program source code, Novels, View HTML source, Google search engine, Mathematics, Hieroglyphics, The Rosetta Stone, Gutenberg Bible...

A textpunk doesn't sit there waiting for information to be slowly fed to him drip at a time by the gogglebox. A textpunk is thirsty for knowledge and 100% focused - they read old school hacker textfile zines. They don't waste their time with lame imageboarders: instead they're doing crazy abstract shitposting on /prog/ with thoughts and concepts twisted up so with many levels of irony that it becomes an art form.

Textpunks recognize and understand the true power of kopipe - how a well crafted piece of text can be so damn powerful that it alone can trigger thousands of replies with so much veracity within days. They see through things down into the core of what really counts, everything in the computer is built of text, ascii, strings of bits - They don't care about the latest 3D GUI environment fads. No, that's just a distraction. 7-bit clean ascii program source code. That's textpunk.

Look at how text has shaped humanity: The birth of writing systems was correlated with some of fastest advances of science and technology in early human history. Mass production of the Bible took power away from a few select monks and democratized paving the way for people to start thinking for themselves. Programming is text and it's the closest thing there is in the world to true wizardy and spell casting. Talking about real SICP-type programming here, not that modern garbage.

Today textpunks build up digital libraries of books and stick it to the copyright cartel. Schwarz, lib gen, the gentoomen library, and so many anonymous sources that tireless scan and collect books.. Textpunks are the people in tune with modern digital society of ultrafast cost-free transmission of text, they're the ones rethinking and revolutionizing publishing mixing it with open rights and making works available online.

【79】SWF software [last50 /cc/]

I'm sharing a small list of software to deal with SWF /f/iles. If you know of anything else or alternatives, please post as well.

To view SWF files on a desktop you can either use Adobe's "Flash Player projector" found here:
or use a third party player, which I have been able to find only of one:
Both are proprietary, Adobe's player has support for most platforms, the second player is only available for Windows. Both can play games as well, I think that's essential for a proper player as there are some that only play animations.

To render SWF files as video use Swivel, it's open source, but only supports Windows and MacOS.
It's not always stable, but gets the job done. Games can also be rendered with it, though no audio will played during this.

My current collection is a 14" Sony PVM I bought for $60 off of eBay, a 20" Samsung CRT my neighbor was throwing out, a 26" Sony Wega I found on the side of the road, a 32" Toshiba HD CRT I got for free at a garage sale, and the only non-CRT in my collection, a 46" Samsung DLP I got for $50 at an estate sale.

【9】Less common computers [last50 /cc/]

After setting up a retro DOS PC and having a ton of fun with it, I've gained quite a bit of interest for other kinds of 90's computing, namely the non-x86 Unix workstations of yore that were monstrously fast and expensive back in the day. Anyone have experience with those things? Are they actually worthwhile to get and use, or is it one of those things where you play with it for a couple hours and just let it gather dust afterwards?

The MIPS-based SGI boxes are particularly interesting, but the pricing on those things seems rather silly at the moment.

I'm kinda impressed with powershell: despite it's extreme verbosity, it has a very, very strong tab-complete.
I was writing a powershell script for a friend today, despite not knowing powershell, and I was interested to see that options to commands could be tab-completed, and that even arguments to commands can be tab-completed.
Interestingly enough, Microsoft has open-sourced powershell under the MIT licence, and apparently it works on GNU/Linux and Mac OS X.

・ 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.

【22】why i don't write tests by chad brocoder [last50 /cc/]

Personally, maintaining flow state and being in the zone is something I take extremely seriously. I do everything I can to minimize distractions and maintain my focus on what I'm doing, and it helps immensely in building momentum and achieving great development velocity

Writing tests is different from the frame of mind you need to be in to effectively write production code. Hence, constantly jumping back and forth between writing production code and writing test code, involves lots of costly context switches, and loss of flow.

【21】TMDC demo [last50 /cc/]

So we've had some expressed interest in making a demo for the next TMDC.

What is TMDC? What is a demo?
Textmode Demo Competition - demos evolved from those little intros crackers used to include with pirated software/games. Compos are basically a dickwagging competition for making a good visual and audio production usually with real-time graphical programming.
Here's an example of a textmode demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t76kr2lKC2k

Whats our idea?
I thought we'd keep in theme with this imageboard so something /jp/ related. However the rules of TMDC require us to own or have access to the copyright, 2hu fits this as ZUN's terms of use a pretty loose. We've pretty much agreed on this although we should look for more content or reference we can use.

How do we get started?
There are frameworks to work with, here's one by brainstorm:

First should take a look at the framework and start figuring out how it works. We should probably get a simple prototype such as an image loaded into the framework and an audio file playing.
We'll need more ideas of what to actually do with it. Especially if we're solely using 2hu we might want to think of a script and what characters we want to include i.e. are we going for laughs, drama, etc?

Should we create an IRC channel for this? Discord?
We might want something more instant than the board for discussing smaller details. I would lean more towards Discord as we can have a "log" of changes and multiple channels for working on different things.
