Welcome to /roulette/, Bunkerchan's roulette board! This board will be used for testing out new board ideas, based on the example of 7chan's /777/ board. The guidelines are as follows: -The countdown will begin as soon as the board is added to the top bar and will last for one month. -After a month, if the board has garnered enough posts on that month's topic, it will be made into a new board (barring any legitimate objections by the moderation team) and the threads will be moved there. Off-topic and spam posts will not count. Board ideas that do not meet this requirement will be shelved, with the possibility of being revisited later. -New board ideas can be suggested in the /gulag/ thread for /roulette/. This month's board topic is: /tech/ - Technology

>>258 I would bring them too /gulag/ itself or to the mod sticky.
>>1 Can somebody explain to me why the fuck is everyting announced only on /gulag/? Isn't /leftypol/ the board with the more traction? Also: You just killed HA! /dead/ and /tech/... why do you want new boards again? And how many posts are considered to be viable for the new board to form? What if the new board will siphon off a huge amount of people from another board (e.g.: Now we have /tech/ here but if it wins it's freedom nobody - who wants to post there - would check on /hobby/ )? How many boards do you want to create in total?
>>276 Not everything is announced only in gulag. Roulette was announced in the mod thread dawg. The thread is just so fast; leftypol only has more traction because users refuse to give otherboards traction.
>>255 >Pretty sure his is up next. Thank you!
>>276 >nobody - who wants to post there - would check on /hobby/ tech stuff is a job for a lot of people comrade

Is protonmail a honeypot? >Trying to sign up on .onion links back to .com >Can't sign up with vpn >Only accepts crypto after you've signed up There's absolutely no reason for not allowing sign-ups with vpns/TOR and activating the accounts after the payment has gone through Do there exist any alternatives that aren't glowies?

It's likely to be a honeypot since Protonmail already cooperated with law enforcement. Also, Swiss confederation recently reduced their privacy laws. Its policies should scare every anti-capitalist human. Initially, Protonmail was suppressed in Google search results but now it's the second for "secure private mail provider" For more info: https://digdeeper.neocities.org/ghost/email.html#ProtonMail >>348 Glowie detected.

https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22318707 >People miss the quality of discussions on Usenet, but don't ever think about why the discussions were better. >Biggest factor I think that made the discussions better is that folks were not connected all the time so discussions would span days or weeks. You had time think between posts. Folks would log on once or twice a day. Obviously there were exceptions. Today a reddit thread has about a 24 hour shelf life because of its global nature, and then it dies. Furthermore the most intense discussions will happen in bursts and then flame out. People aren't engaging in discussion they are shouting their opinion into the ether and moving on. Back at the old place, /tech/ had low pph even when unique ips were high This is what made it good Slow boards aren't a bad thing

Let's talk VPNs Comrade 01/27/2020 (Mon) 15:36:01 No. 17 [Reply] [Last]
I was using riseup.net as a VPN, but, now cloudflair (The upstream provider for the site) is blocking it. Furthermore, it's come to my attention that riseup boofed their canary after the FBI requested server logs. They are glowin the darks, for real, and confirmed. What VPN would you suggest anon? What VPN, if any, do you use. I was thinking of routing all my traffic over tor, but, currently the site still blocks tor traffic. Help me out guys, I feel naked, thanks.

Kickstarter workers unionize Comrade 02/19/2020 (Wed) 01:00:29 No. 352 [Reply] [Last]
https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22356972 https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/3a8pp5/kickstarter-employees-win-historic-union-election >The decision to unionize at Kickstarter follows a series of victories for union campaigns led by blue collar tech workers. Last year, 80 Google contractors in Pittsburgh, 2,300 cafeteria workers at Google in Silicon Valley, and roughly 40 Spin e-scooter workers in San Francisco voted to form the first unions in the tech industry. In early February, 15 employees at the delivery app Instacart in Chicago successfully unionized, following a fierce anti-union campaign run by management.

Comrade 02/11/2020 (Tue) 23:20:05 No. 301 [Reply] [Last]
I made a mild college CS alarmist post today on /leftypol/ and was asked by a student for advice on what to avoid in school. I'm well aware of how contentious programming can get, often with people disagreeing on what even constitutes fact vs. opinion, so feel free to argue against anything I say or provide your own advice to any potential CS students. Disclaimer: If you want to be a web-dev, none of what follows is applicable. Offer up your soul to the mad gods of JavaScript and prepare to live out your days in unspeakable agony. Here is my generalized advice in terms of CS: take any class that is focused on implementation rather than theory. Theory is also very important but it is absolutely useless unless it relates to your actual programming experience. If you are not being assigned large or challenging projects, make your own. Things to avoid or be skeptical of: - You are primarily being tested on pen-and-paper. The only time programmers have to write algorithms without a debugger or at least a console to print to is in job interviews. You can fail every single test in algorithms class and still be a boss programmer. Tests like these are more akin to Math exams where you must provide proofs. - You are being force-fed OOP (Object Oriented Programming), either by an academic ideologue or simply by virtue of using Java which basically forces it. OOP in programming epitomizes "ideology" in Zizek sense, it's an abstract model adored by academics who don't write code for actual users because of its perceived elegance and simplicity. However, real-world code ALWAYS has to deal with reality's messy edge cases, which renders any OOP code into a nightmare. There are about a million other reasons it's bad, there are many good lectures on YT. - Dynamic languages. If you have never programmed you might not even know what this means. Some examples include Python, JavaScript, Lua, etc. These are good for very small applications, like scripts, support tools, toy programs, hobby use, etc. The problem is that they can often be slow, and generally let you make fatal mistakes that you won't even know about until you actually hit the bug in testing. Compiled languages (C, C++), on the other hand, have a huge amount of rules that the programmer must obey before they even run the program. If all the rules are satisfied, the compiler translates your code to a fast, efficient format that gets directly executed by the cpu. This ends up saving an enormous amount of time by catching mistakes before running the program, and it produces a faster result. You should ultimately learn both dynamic and compiled languages, but only the latter ultimately leads to enlightenment. And FOR GOD'S SAKE if you are making a large, non-trivial project, make it in an actual, compiled language. Things to do: - Figure out which direction to go in. Programming has an almost unlimited array of applications. Eventually you will have to specialize to a certain degree. - Learn how to read code. This is brutal at first and only comes with time, but eventually you will learn how to. Whenever I find something interesting on github, I poke my head in and see if I can get any good ideas, or just observe how others solve the same problems I have. - Learn a god-damn text editor. I use Vim. It's horrible at first, then it's pretty nice, then it's great, then it becomes part of your being. - Be optimistic. Yes, I know, this sounds retarded, but hear me out. I knew before I ever started programming that it absolutely MUST feel amazing to be a really good programmer. I still have a lot to learn but these days I can tackle most problems that come up without consulting the internet and holy fuck does it feel good.

>>312 >Programming is not about computers No, but you can't program without a computer, can you? Even abstract programs are made to be run by abstract Turing Machines. Programming and computers are fundamentally linked. Nice word games, tho. >>314 SICP is well worth a read but you can obviously see his post is filled with meme-tier LARPing. >>316 Agreed with almost everything here. Make your own projects based on what you're interested in. People hiring will be far more impressed by completed projects than by your diploma. And for the record, even though I used C and C++ as examples of compiled languages, nowhere did I shill for them in particular. C is ancient and profoundly flawed and C++ is even worse but they are still often the least bad tools for the job. I was just expounding on the joys of having a compiler, that's all.
>>326 I can program without a computer just fine. If you can't, you might want to look for a new career path.
I think this might be a good thread to ask this. So I am just a few months away from having to decide what university course to choose. I am mostly certain I will be able to quire a government-sponsored spot in most of the ones I am considering, however I would like some advice on which might be the best. Basically there are 2 perspective tech courses and the more general math one, so I would really appreciate if you could give me some advice. The following course is the one I've heard was supposedly more promising, or at least the one that usually attracts better students and has better teachers (I will try to post other courses as well later, don't have time for all of them now): Information system engineering <1st semester: -Information and group work systems -Computer architecture -Math for information systems -Procedural programming <2nd semester: -Algorithms ad data structures -Discreet math for information systems -Database control systems -Object programing <3rd semester:

>>333 Computer Science / Informatics > Information Systems * > math etc. Getting a general math degree only qualifies you to be a math teach, you will essentially have to teach yourself dev. The degree you posted looks good, id take that any day over a pure math degree UNLESS you want to go to grad school for CS (PHD) and do research in which case the proofs, etc of a pure math degree might be helpful. But if you want to go to work, try something applied
>>333 Is this in Europe? A degree like this is usually called information systems in the US. You usually don't take very many business classes for engineering degrees in the US. In my program I don't have to take anything to do with marketing or economics. I've noticed a lot of European countries make no distinction between IT and Computer Science.
