Good day, sir. If you would allow me a prompt remark, I would like to comment on your use of the language of the great Shakespear. Indeed, it seems, maybe in your precipitation, that you have taken the poor lass and massacred her as you would an ill behaving wife. While doing that on the wife would bring me no incomfort, doing this on the language makes it impossible for me to understand your point. Thus, if I may, please be more mindful in the future, sir.
Best regards,

>defending a pedo
Replies: >>350
No he's not a 'would-be' pedo anymore, he actually retracted most of his 'consent logic' argument and claimed 'it is' bad for children. That was around Epstein shit in news and some tweeter sjw quoted Stallman to disown him of everything he had accomplished. It's just stupid, he was using 'logical consent=legal' argument and I even doubt he'd go pedo irl, it's just that he wanted a little banter 'if dead can consent' type of shit then so does children. He's a 1D fag though (text/book character), way ahead of you 2D loli/pedofagots.

Hey, so I wanted a tool to help with migrating my imageboard around. I used the approach of making copies of threads by hand, but I wanted something more powerful and much simpler to use. With the upcoming opening of 8kun, I figured it might be of interest to other anons to also use a tool like this. Sadly, my progress to date only includes my hand-written C++ code, not a fully pre-packaged piece of software for general users. So, atm this will only be of any practical interest to anons who can compile C++ and install needed dependencies. If that's you, then read on.

While I plan to create a GUI for this tool at a later point, for now it's a command-only tool. You run it simply by supplying the site name followed by the board name. For example:
./archbot julay.world robowaifu
would download the catalog's json & html, every thread's json & html, and every thread's media files (images, audio, video, pdfs, etc) to a local copy in whatever directory y

Cool, thanks Tom. I was a dumbass not to realize that would happen, and it helped me to take care that even my general text files follow 80chars now, if a little more loosely. I hope things went well for you mate.
Nice thing you provided instruction, Waifs.

Good job Tom

I aim to install a distro with following specifications:
- modern drivers for Radeon display adapters e.g. AMDGPU
- no systemd/GNOME3/pulseaudio with horrible defaults
- better documentation than devuan
Any suggestions? Considering gentoo, funtoo, guix, slackware for starters. I avoided Arch since it defaults to systemd - leading to unnecessary dependencies that can be potentially incompatible with a minimalist init. I wonder if that can be mitigated, since Arch seems very fun to tinker with.

There is no need to duplicate the rest of the arguments against it, I did not want to cause a systemd bashing thread. They are boring now.
I honestly do understand your concern.
Does the gentoo CoC influence the quality of the package management tooling? There was some sort of drama thing involving drobbins, too early to be involved with CAE or RH. Something about the project management moving too slow, I think. 
I guess I'll still pick gentoo since it's already been ported to more CPU arches.
>arch meh
Noted, thanks.
fix the documentation your complaining and and send in patches. then use devuan

Gentoo kernel configuration complex. Going to keep trying.  
I'm not using email unless I get a proxy. Don't want my location and hardware tied to patches. 
I think the problem came down to runlevels and eudev when using LVM within LUKS on GPT. Bloody login manager kept breaking because eudev failed to start, I had to start it manually from recovery boot mode.
Gentoo is definitely the "fastest horse in the glue factory" if you want to get rid of certain shitware: USE flags, user patches and overlays make it possible. Kernel configuration is obnoxious but it's a thing you do once for your hardware and then you just reuse and modify the old one. Nothing stops you from reusing another distro's kernel config either, though that one will obviously be more bloated. Most Linux security issues are in weirdo kernel modules that only shituntu et al include.

I haven't seen CoC shit be a big issue aside from worthless busybodies in IRC who won't answer your question but *will* rant at you for saying "fuck" once, but the quality of package management has definitely declined in the last few years. The worst part was probably when they edited the qt4 USE flags away without even a build revision. Thanks for silently removing my wpa_supplicant GUI, faggots.
I gave up on gentoo after spending a couple of days trying to configure and compile a kernel, without using kernel modules where possible, without using an automatic initramfs using tools like Dracut. AMD firmware for GPUs is a real pain when you try to hardcode the path to the firmware. I couldn't boot into any login screen at all.
I'm guessing slackware would have been a better choice in retrospect, but now I'm on debian because I want to play games without having to spend half an hour checking dependencies that have been renamed.

Here is another bad idea: Facial Landmark/"Mapping" based (((Coincidence Detector)))
Assuming we are using DLib's Facial Landmark algorithm, and assuming (((they))) haven't done complete plastic surgery, we should be able to find (((them))).

Those are fair points in general, but the C++ community has interests in a vast array of areas--obviously including the Internet--and there are roughly 5 million men earning a living daily programming in the language professionally. I wouldn't exactly call that a small community tbh.

No doubt its much easier for a PHB to decide the cost of dev time is more important that process run times from his narrow view. Try telling that to the likes of Jewgle or Amazon however. Much of their datacenter code is strictly C++ today. Turns out the limited supply of, and cost of the electricity itself is the chief limiting factor in their business models. They decide on languages based on how much wattage per instruction is needed at scale, and so naturally not only choose C++, but are heavily involved in driving it into new directions via their participation in the ISO C++ Standards Committee.

Consider that Golang is just Typescript for Python IDK.

So a two pronged C++ API backend and JS frontend?

The one thing to gaining imageboard traffic:features are king...
therefore if C++ slows your ability to implement all the features in Lainchan you should reconsider your choice of programming language.
