Seriously this looks like a literal phone of the future. The design is unlike anything we've ever seen and you can definitely still see it being cool 5 years from now.

That is exactly what YOU are trying to push you retarded zoomer. Majority of people need a headphone jack.

There was a thread earlier about TUI applications, and in that thread an interesting point was brought up. In their current form on modern operating systems, we access our CLIs through the emulation of old terminals. I think even Windows does this with CMD, although I’m not sure what it emulates (a CRT with DOS?) no clue on powershell.
But does it really have to be that way? What if we were to design a CLI that had no legacy ties whatsoever? As in, it does not emulate anything and is a strictly new implementation of a command-line interface program for whatever operating system. What would that look like? In theory it could be done, but what would we lose? What would we gain?

It's actually more efficient since you have one fewer steps (initial door opening) when cooking food. If you can't live with having your door open when it's not in use don't use a microwave
if you use anything besides the highest power setting you're using the microwave for the wrong purpose
go away /o/
go away /lgbt/
the thing youre thinking of is a toaster oven
fundamentally different from a microwave
My microwave is in a shit spot, so the door would get in my way, moving it to a corner would solve it l, you're actually right, even about the power settings, if not on max, why use it at all?
I'm glad you're starting to see the light
The microwave's purpose is to quickly heat food.
If you need to defrost something or soften your butter take it out of the freezer/fridge in the morning. if you need to cook or bake some food or pastry or something you put it in the oven. if you need to have a bag of popcorn, a hotpocket or need to reheat cold chinese takeout you use the microwave at the highest setting

I have for a couple of years now been pretty interested in cyber security (as a total amateur)

And I look into it and play a bit with it once in a while.

It’s been some time since I was looking into it last time.

I remember something about it being a really good idea to use some Plugins for my TorBrowser, like “scriptstop” (I think it was called?)

But when I’m looking it up now I can’t find anything about that, and in general the best information I can find seems to be 3-4 year old sites or youtube videos.

If I really want to look into it properly this time where would you guys recommend that I start?

From what I understand, the general way the internet is setup and designed, is not really compatible with encryption, and yet somehow it works
>Interesting, do you know why?
Don't entiely know. But using a VPN certainly wont make it harder to track you. I guess it would make a correlation attack a lot easier.
>how would I share some data with the world
Connect to a website or hidden service and upload the documents. Some news orgs have secure drops on tor just for that purpose. New York times has one I think.
>the general way the internet is setup and designed, is not really compatible with encryption
Not sure where you heard that but that's not true. Sure things could be better. There is too much trust put into specific services of the web. Specifically certificate authorities and DNS. Tor doesn't use those but it does have a master list of tor nodes (they try to kick ones that are trying to deanonymize users)
tor is for fucking weirdos, whatever you're up to i suggest you cut it the fuck out
>Connect to a website or hidden service and upload the documents. Some news orgs have secure drops on tor just for that purpose.
Would it really be safe just to go to NYT website through tor and upload some files if I was potentially being spied on by the North Korean or Iranian gov/ secret service?
>tor is for fucking weirdos, whatever you're up to i suggest you cut it the fuck out
or is for fucking weirdos, whatever you're up to i suggest you cut it the fuck out
>tor is for fucking weirdos, whatever you're up to i suggest you cut it the fuck out

Well yeah, I know, most of the time at least, but I have already seen my fair share of nasty shit when I was going through my 15 year old “I’m totally a hacker browsing 4chan and being a part of anonymous!” phase.
And as fucked up as gore and cp can be, somehow, I still think it’s a price worth paying for “real” free speech

Certainly ironic but i do feel compelled to respond to the point on anonymity. Lots of social science research has been since on it and anonymity has it's upsides and downsides. In other words, it brings out the best and the worst in all of us.
The anonymity and easy access to posting ruin it. It’s an interesting idea because you can just post and get replies but you can do that anywhere with a bit more effort with the benefit of at least getting a higher chance of quality responses. Nothing of value here. It only caters to people who are tools. People don’t act like this in real life because they’ll quickly realize after being outcast how stupid they are but because it’s anonymous here is suddenly okay to be an idiot? I don’t get the disconnect.
Facebook is still at the top but a huge margin. I don’t think most people agree. The issue is the bad outweighs the good. I mean look at the inane response I got to my reply. No reason to post that but the snowflake felt personally offended and instead of posting a genuine response he just acts like an egg. Kind of validates my point.

It’s an interesting concept but years of this site have shown it’s negative aspects far outweigh the positives, which I have yet to see.
Just don't visit those threads. Stick to generals or the kind of threads you like. Learn more about tech and post serious facts in the shitposting threads. I've changed a lot of minds that way.

Just because shit threads might be common doesn't mean it's all the content. 4chan's boards are different then other places. Since all that is needed for a thread to get pushed to the top is for someone to post, content circulates differently.

why can't you open .exe files on linux?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
You can, provided you have a loader for it. On Linux ELF is used instead of PE. You'd be missing any of the libraries it links to though, and if it makes any syscalls they'd be incompatible with those implemented by the Linux kernel so you'd have to translate them. After you're done doing all this you'll realize you pretty much recreated wine.
You can sometimes. Do you have Mono or .NET Core runtimes installed?

A lot of modern programs will work if you have these installed. Of course, some will not work with merely these runtimes because they are dependent upon something that is exclusive to Windows.

You can also install Wine to provide a compatibility layer that causes many more programs to work.
you can

All who know not of the sacred library are shunned.

Assembly is easy. Look up any reference and just fucking code. Don't think your teacher will note or understand how inefficient or dumb your code is if it works.

Thanks for the leads, everyone. I really appreciate it :)

it's really minimal compared to openSuse, so you will have to read (and hopefully learn) some stuff if its your first minimal install but other than that its a pretty solid choice imo

..and you will have to troubleshoot using wikis from other distros because the community isn't that big thou
tip: read the forum before update.
Void is an infinitely better distro than Arch, certainly.

How many times did you delete your root folder before throwing linux in the trash? For me today was the last straw

There's literally no way you can "accidentally" delete the root directory.
>running things as root
>running things as root with -y
what baffles me is you've done this multiple times. One would think that after the first time you deleted your entire system because you're a retard you'd learn from your mistake. Surely losing all your data and reinstalling your OS is more tiring than typing the letter y/n ...?
... Never?

Noob Python question:
I want to save a list to a file so I can open it and use again later with the same py file. Since lists cannot be written to a file, I converted the list to a string and wrote it. So the file looks like "['a', 'b', 'c']". How can I read this file's contents as a list? If I try to do a simple file.read() it gives me the string, but if I convert that to a list using list(string), it looks like "'[','\'',','" et cetera because it is creating a list using every character in the string including the brackets and commas. Is there a simple way to do this? I feel like I must be overlooking something obvious.
While I am familiar with their work, I'm just surprised their methods aren't used everywhere. How good of a PC do you need just to fix up images and videos they normally work with.?
why not write the elements to the file line by line?
There it is, I KNEW I was missing something super obvious. Thanks man.
