WHO /BRAINTRAIN/ HERE?

post braintraining shit
https://www.brainturk.com/dual-n-back
I just started, apparently doing a session of this a day can help you quit drinking. its like a miracle. The way you play is you push the button when the sequence repeats however many times back. So it starts with 1 back, which is easy, you just gotta remember the very last position and letter. Then it goes to 2 back and its a lot harder on your attention span.

I said there are potential uses for it, but the commerical shit is a meme. It's much easier to make games that feel like they're training you than to make games that might actually help (especially if you want people to buy your product). It's a very easy scam to do, and there's a bunch of people doing it. The stuff that would actually work isn't generally commercially viable, so it's restricted to the occasional experimental stuff. Someone might figure out a way to make games they can sell (like Brain Age) but it's a market that's full of grifters. And video games aren't particularly good at preventing senility. Reading books, doing a hobby, exercising, etc - basically anything that stimulates you regularly will help you in that regard. "Brain training" is definitely a meme used to scam people.
Total waste of time. Go learn new languages or something.

learning a language would be nice, but i think id require someone else who knew the language to be effective at learning it and then having some use for it. It'd be nice to be able to read some theory in its original german but I don't know if the investment is worth it.

Similarly with electronic repair, how do I ever gain those skills without having something to practice on. Which starts to get expensive. I think electronics are cheap enough today that its more expensive to buy those repair tools rather than just throwing it out and buying another microwave.

If I had money for a hobby, I would for sure be getting into stuff like drones though. Not trying to be a negative nancy, but I think we're talking two separate things. The attractiveness of brain training is that it's easy and free, at least the one i posted. You can come home, crash on the couch, and do it from your phone, 20 minutes a day and supposedly see results.

Bunker Media is a project to make a blog and a small podcast/radio show with a background playlist of laborwave and fan-made music based on a Wordpress-based website. We need writers, musicians, editors, translators, programmers, and listeners. We're planning on reporting on news, theory, practice, book discussion, and maybe other stuff besides.

Bunkerchan Movie Night n1x ##WQj+IL 05/17/2016 (Tue) 04:50:35 No. 42 [Reply] [Last]
So now that we finally have a general entertainment board...

People have expressed interest before in doing a Bunkerchan movie night. This is a thread to discuss that and to post any planned streams (Hoxha might want to sticky this).

So first of all: I'm not going to stream shit unless people show up. That being said, I can't stream every week at a time that works for everyone even if I wanted to, so if anyone other than me is able to stream and willing to, you should post here.

I'm also wondering what sorts of things people would want to watch. People have in the past talked about doing lefty themed movies and documentaries, but I think that'd be kind of limiting if it was all we streamed.

I'm all for this, but we really need to figure out what types of movies we're going to watch.
The Korean movie Parasite fucking sucked and it was so obvious the director was middle class
>>2788
I don't think we should watch anything too heavy, some light and fun stuff, maybe leftism related ofc
>>2813
finally someone agrees. I had to turn it off when the family of genius conmen went full retard and hung around in the house while the family was on vacation. too fucking stupid... everyone in it acted like a cartoon.
There's a Bunker Media project going on RN, maybe we could show the movies there.

clojure Comrade 08/06/2019 (Tue) 04:54:14 No. 731 [Reply] [Last]
what does bunkerchan think of clojure?

its a lisp that actually works for web dev and other SW dev in the modern day.

https://clojure.org/
41 posts and 3 images omitted.
>>2841
I actually know a bit of Clojure, and the backstory. I agree with what you mention about the persistent data-structures and concurrency being built-in rather than in libraries is a advantage, all be it a rather minor one to me. I disagree with the idea that Common Lisp having Lists makes it slow, in practice Common Lisp programmers use whatever data-structures are most performant for their applications, including using mutability to increase performance when applicable. Also it's possible that Clojure is simpler than Common Lisp, but it's not simpler than Scheme. You can (and I have) literally read the Scheme specification in a few hours, and understand the guarantees and primitives of the whole language across implementations. Trading the Common Lisp ecosystem for Java's might be advantageous depending on the application though.
>>2845
>You can (and I have) literally read the Scheme specification in a few hours

including all the SRFI? If your argument is that you can write a basic lisp interpreter as a side project or for a class then yes scheme is simpler but in addition to the SRFI to make scheme usable you have things like for example in Racket Scheme which have to implement lots of additional stuff to make scheme into a practically usable language (for web dev).

Scheme is like the C of lisps
Common Lisp is like the C++ of lisps
Clojure is like the Java of lisps

If you had to choose for example an embedded language for scripting a video game, scheme or lua might be good.

I probably wouldn't use scheme for doing modern web dev, because there are myriad of toy implementations. When you try to sell jim the JS developer on lisp, hes gonna flip his shit when he can't find the GraphQL library

>in practice Common Lisp programmers use whatever data-structures are most performant for their applications

sure but all good programmers choose whatever data structures are the most performant for their task. Its not just about what a language allows but what it steers average coders into in. rockstars can write good code in any language

>using mutability to increase performance when applicable.

theres a lot of strategies that let you rewrite functional code into mutable efficient code under the hood and most functional languages use these

Common lisp is a more complete overall language (other than concurrency) and Scheme is easier to understand, but as far as tooling, practicality, ease of use, and popularity Clojure definitely wins hands down. Other than emacs lisp Clojure probably has the most lines of code written of any of the lisps today.
>>2850
>The SRFI to make scheme usable you have things like for example in Racket Scheme which have to implement lots of additional stuff to make scheme into a practically usable language (for web dev).
The SRFI's are just libraries, Racket isn't a Scheme anymore, and really the only extensions you need to RnRS to have a language quite capable of web development is POSIX support, threads, and probably a FFI. Many Scheme implementations have these things. Regarding Libraries you should look at Chicken Scheme: http://eggs.call-cc.org/5/#lang-exts https://github.com/lassik/graphql-chicken Not that this isn't all besides the point because your claim was that Scheme was more complex than Clojure which is simply not true.

>Its not just about what a language allows but what it steers average coders into in. rockstars can write good code in any language
I don't think as a programmer you should care about how a language steers average developers. Ease of doing something does matter, and you're going to have a slight cost by going into quicklisp and installing a library for some of the things Clojure has built in but it's not significant. Regardless the average Common Lisp programmer cares a great deal about performance, and they tend to write very fast applications.

>theres a lot of strategies that let you rewrite functional code into mutable efficient code under the hood and most functional languages use these
I don't think this is true, you can do this if you have Linear/Quantitative types but otherwise you're going to be giving up any concurrency guarantees you have, if you do this behind the back of the programmer (which is sort of the main point of writing in a functional style at this point).

>Common lisp is a more complete overall language (other than concurrency) and Scheme is easier to understand, but as far as tooling, practicality, ease of use, and popularity Clojure definitely wins hands down.
I think this is probably a fair assessment so long as you recognize that Clojure has these advantages only for a single problem domain. It has better tooling, practicality, and ease of use for web development and nothing else. Additionally I don't think the advantages it has in this department are that significant.

>Common Lisp btfo
Not really, it was mostly just a overview, and as I said I already knew a good bit of Clojure. Pretty much all his arguments are rendered null by (ql:quickload "fset") or are insignificant to the point of not mattering. Porky likes JVM is another part of his reasoning. Some of the abstractions mentioned are cool, but don't really matter, it's basically just sugar. Not particularly interesting to me. I can't be bothered to watch the second video provided. Anyway I'm getting pretty bored talking about this, I feel I've made a quite solid case, so I'll probably stop now.

freespace Anonymous Comrade 11/19/2019 (Tue) 09:19:07 No. 2819 [Reply] [Last]
what does bunkerchan think of the Freespace series, meaning descent freespace 1 & 2 plus the expansion silent threat for the original.

Freespace 2, and its open source version remains to this day the crowning achievement of the "Space Sim" genre which it has never really topped, despite having come out over 20 years ago

the storyline is essentially a less personalized version of mass effect, or more accurately mass effect is ripping off descent freespace since it came out like 10 years later. Dead space also has similar lovecraftian themes
(40.47 KB 320x454 freelancer.jpg)
Never played it, but I loved Freelancer when I was a kid, any relation?
Used to have a demo CD with a demo of Freespace 1 when I was 8. Really loved the game, but as an adult I never bothered getting it again. I've only heard good things about Freespace 2, so I might download both games one of these days.
>>2848
be sure to check out the freespace 2 open source version as well (requires a copy of the original to play though). After FS2 the genre basically died and the studio went backrupt so they released the source code for free.

The fan community ended up updating the game engine with modern graphics and their own custom campaigns.

>>2846
Both are space games but freespace is much more story/capmaign oriented. It had a very extensive single player campaign as well as multi player (one of the first modern games in that it had voice chat and a map/scenario editor that came with the game).

I never played freelancer but I think its like another 'Elite' clone?, you can wander around the galaxy like han solo?

Freespace OTOH is definitively in the 'military science fiction' genre

the soundtrack is part ambient part electronic in the style of 80s/90s scifi-techno.

The music, the combat system, the storyline all really add to the atmosphere.

You can get the original game and the sequel for $10 on GOG, sometimes they go on sale for $5
