Open Access to ACM Digital Library During Coronavirus Pandemic Comrade 03/31/2020 (Tue) 07:07:15 No. 680 [Reply] [Last]
https://www.acm.org/articles/bulletins/2020/march/dl-access-during-covid-19 > Dear ACM Members: > > As the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic continues, we at ACM would like to do what we can to help support the computing community. Many computing researchers and practitioners are now working remotely. In addition, teaching and learning have also moved online as more and more campuses close. > > We believe that ACM can help support research, discovery and learning during this time of crisis by opening the ACM Digital Library to all. For the next three months, there will be no fees assessed for accessing or downloading work published by ACM. We hope this will help researchers, practitioners and students maintain access to our publications as well as increasing visibility and awareness of ACM’s journals, proceedings and magazines. Please be sure to inform your colleagues that the ACM DL is now open, and will continue that way through June 30, 2020. > > This global health crisis is a unique challenge that has impacted many ACM members. We would like to express our concern and support for all who are affected by this outbreak. > > Stay well! > > Cherri Pancake > ACM President

>>1206 You can search libgen by DOI or title. I usually find the articles I am interested in through other means and only go to libgen to download them.
If you are new to scientific research, this paper describes a good method to find your way through the endless papers available. I have made good of this technique during my student years. How to read a paper by S. Keshav https://dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/1273445.1273458
>>1196 Thank you anon! This post was very helpful, and exactly what I needed. A 50,000 foot view of these topics since I'm such a novice to computer science. Have a Marxist Maru

The enemy uses bots. What do we know about how they work? Is there any literature that would help in writing our own? >>478855

>>1698 I'm an bot. :) :)
>>1699 They can filter on coherency too you know. They probably have an ever-expanding set of filters that censor different datasets to create different kinds of bots each time. They'll measure the response amount and type too to see if and how the post worked on the subjects targeted. Maybe we could compile some of the resources the /pol/ thread found (like the banned original research reddit OP image) for a thread on /leftypol/ for this stuff. It's important for all anons to become aware of this, and if it discourages people from engaging in meaningless twitter or reddit drama all the better.
>>1712 do it
>>1712 Yes, do it. This [info itt] was eye opening even though I already knew about it. You see we're aware of the government "spying" and "tracking" you but bots have hijacked internet discussion. One thing that's odd is that sometimes you read about this shit in the news and it's played off as something that's been going on for a long time so it's less of a big deal. The reality is that this is relatively recent and the full effects are unknown to us.

This is a good thread with nice accessible and, amazingly to me at least, relatively simple to follow guides. I'm not a programmer, I just want to automate some of my job/hobbies, but I just love how cosy this place is for noobs like me reading this stuff. Thanks for making this shit comprehensible, I took one class once because I thought about doing Game Dev and I was confused to shit and no one would explain. They just expected you to sink or swim. The thick accents didn't help either.

Give me one reason that pos editor emacs is better than this bad boy right here? you can't
82 posts and 32 images omitted.
There was a period when i was learning vim, then i switched to geany and then emacs. Vim isn't good for editing latex, since i am not native english i must frequently switch languages and that made editing in vim a pain, geany is good, but i think if i learn emacs i can do more within less time.
>>1484 Why don't you think vim is good for editing latex? that's what I primarily use it for as a math fag,
>>1485 I can't use the shortcuts (ie. i, u etc) if my keyboard isn't in english and i can't save fast because i have to write in my native language on latex, switching the language every time to save the document is a pain(when i want to save i have to press escape and :w, so it has to be on english keyboard).
>>1486 You could remap shortcuts to translate them to your keyboard layout. Maybe there exists a vim plugin that automates this for you.

Truly, the Year of the Linux Desktop is finally upon us! Comrade 05/08/2020 (Fri) 00:24:07 No. 1635 [Reply] [Last]
<Between the months of March and April 2020, Windows 7 saw a drop in user market share from 26.23 percent to 25.59 percent. That’s hardly surprising for a 10-year-old, unsupported OS as people finally upgrade to Windows 10. Right? Despite that conventional thinking, Microsoft’s Windows 10 actually experienced a rare drop in market share (down to 56.08 percent in April from its March 2020 share of 57.34 percent). Meanwhile, popular Linux distribution Ubuntu enjoyed an explosive increase. <Canonical's Ubuntu Linux OS saw astonishing gains in marketshare, while WIndows 10 slumped NASEEF FOR JASON EVANGELHO <How explosive? Ubuntu’s overall share of operating system usage ballooned from 0.27% in March to 1.89% in April. To put that in perspective, that’s an increase of 599 percent. <The lift for Canonical’s Ubuntu resulted in Linux usage climbing from 1.36 percent to 2.87 percent. And to frame that up against an interesting Apple data point, NetMarketShare measures macOS Catalina — which also gained user share in April — at 4.15 percent. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2020/05/06/windows-10-is-bleeding-users-while-ubuntu-linux-enjoys-an-astonishing-increase/ We did it, reddit!

How many of you use this app? It's only moderately spyware, less so than Discord at least. https://spyware.neocities.org/articles/telegram.html Here's a leftist chat I frequent: https://t.me/UAAMeta
>>1519 I do use it some years by now, and I'd join your group anon, but I don't really see myself as as anarchist, sorry...
Why use moderately spyware when not spyware at all exists? Just use Matrix, XMPP, IRC or the thousand other alternatives.
>>1530 >wah why won't people use my autism chat media I also like IRC but it's dying out and I can only really use it for substantive tech talk. Telegram is good for shitposting and it isn't as though I use it to discuss anything I'd care if the gov saw
>>1519 >>1540 Requires phone number. No thanks.
The best thing about Telegram is the publishing feeds ("channels"). Lots of thematic channels with good info and meme/gif streams.

Oh god oh fuck I'm retarded. I've never been tech-savvy, just a pleb consoomer and user, never digging deeper than what was on surface level. But it seems to be, based on what I've been hearing for the past two years, that those who don't have a workable knowledge of it will simply be considered the illiterate of the 21st century. What bare bones basic, and I'm talking like Primary School shit I'm just that dense, level stuff should I learn? So far I've got: - Linux (no fucking clue how I'm going to learn it) - Python (seems accessible and is used in some GAN AIs which I find interesting, so kinda motivating) - Ruby (it's easier Python, is it really worth it then?) - C++ (I've just seen it everywhere I have no idea what it actually is) - Java (always thought it was only for free online games)

>>1848 I am trying to say that this is just the usual "hurr real men use C" bullshit that is spouted by imbeciles in every /dpt/ because they think using malloc and free somehow makes them better than other programmers. There is absolutely no reason to learn C or C++ if your goal is to write "really excellent" Python programs. The way memory is managed are wildly different and there's little if any transfer between the two. You are better off studying the cost model of Python instead of masturbating to how manual your memory management is despite the malloc implementation doing most of the heavy lifting for you.
>>1852 >Otherwise you sabotage yourself, like most Tor users How?
>>1848 pass-by-reference is not the same thing as garbage-collected
>>1891 off the top of my head: -doing shit that makes your browser uniquely identifiable, like making your window a weird size -installing browser extensions that fuck with the page and thus fingerprint your browser to the website admins -putting confidential information in tor. tor exit nodes can MITM you and you should not trust stuff on tor to be secure -doing shit that ties your activity together, like having a conversation in one browser tab and then copy-pasting your post onto a different website in another browser tab
imo this is the best thread in /tech/ rn for total begginers to this stuff. Keep it up.
