"I've never installed gnu/linux"

Just stick with the default, how hard is it? I personally have a .bashrc and a few other configs with an auto install script I keep on my github but that's it.
Compiling gentoo is more about configuring your operating system exactly how YOU want it, as is ricing your desktop and etc. Some people may not care whatsoever about either of those things, but for some people those are very important.
Why, what do you not like in the 5000000000000000000000000000 distros out there? More importantly, why don't you make an auto install script with all the configs and makeflags so I can get a readily usable gentoo instead of going through all the trouble?
>why don't you make an auto install script with all the configs and makeflags
But I did.

> so I can get a readily usable gentoo instead of going through all the trouble?
My setup is almost certainly nothing like what you want. Why even use Gemtoo if you don't want to customize it yourself?
Can you send me that automatic gentoo installer

his analogy is pretty accurate though
gender dysphoria is a real thing however simply telling people "you're a girl lol" is very far from curing the illness.
nothing wrong with feeling bad about your body however thinking you're someone that you just aren't is completely delusional. there's a difference between "i wish i was a girl" and "i am a girl even though i have a dick and was born a guy"

Everyone who was originally hunting these either got v& or bored, or was larping...

There are some nice tools out there for looking for files and text on the blockchain, like passwords:


Beyond that the insurance file torrents are all in the docs repo on the second link there.

Considering the DDoS in October 2016 when Assange had is internet access cut off, as well as the transaction spam to the blockchain on the same day, I find it suspicious and interesting. The spam may have been WL transactions uploading file segments, or more than likely, state actors trying to prevent release.

Help/thoughts/etc? There's more info that can be dropped but it's not worth the effort if none of you give a shit.

I have a pretty decent but rudimentary knowledge base of computing and can pick up new stuff relatively easily as long as I have context and definitions. I know of some number of sectools, only ones that are publically available though, and Im prepared to learn as much as possible about security and exploits.

If I attempt to infiltrate a system it is only to test my skills and learn more. How do I ascend from script-kiddie-dom? Is the answer just to be a script kiddie running tool X and tool Y until you understand everything enough to build your own?
New to the biz, eh kid? I remember when I was like you, pulling exploits, or 'sploits as we used to call them, from Rapid7 and sharing them on a private hacker IRC I found. People would ask me, hey what are you doing on your computer with 17 tabs open all the time? And I'd say, I'm in the biz. They'd say, what biz? And I stopped talking to them, because I knew the kind of people who knew what the "biz" was wouldn't ask questions like what the "biz" was, and people who didn't know about the "biz" couldn't be told. They would look at my funny, and just for kicks sometimes I'd pwn their Facebook accounts.

So you want to get into the biz. It's not easy, getting into the biz. First things first, you gotta hack the Gibson. No one in the biz will take you seriously until you do. Now you'll ask, what is the Gibson? Actually the first thing you gotta do is to find the Gibson, it being logically preceding hacking the Gibson. Then you may ask, how do I hack into the Gibson? If you were a little smarter, you'd ask where can I learn to hack into the Gibson. Because to get into the biz you need to get into the Gibson. In that sense, the Gibson is the biz, and you've got to impress the Gibson by hacking the biz and impress the biz by hacking the Gibson. First things first, you gotta close the curtains and turn off the lights. Then get your hands on some neon. Doesn't matter what it says, probably better if it's in a foreign language so people think you're a multicultural guy. Green is good, so's blue. But the all time favorite is that reddish pink you see in Chinatown. You might think this has nothing to do with the biz, but in the biz it's all about style. You gotta hack with style.

Now first thing you gotta do after that is learn all about HTML. The Web, or as we in the biz call it cyberspace, or we in the more rarefied levels of the biz call c-space, or the leet of the biz call c'ace, runs on HTML.
Nice copypasta, saving that one.
based, this is some fresh pasta.
>got my neons ready
>learn HTML
>hack the gibson
saving this one. meanwhile this is all I need to know to know that I'm not in-the-know and it's all need-to-know.
guess I'll just keep learning everything I can about hardware, software, and network infrastructure, vulnerabilities, typical attack vectors; injections, buffer overflows and the rest, what goes into designing an exploit, and go from there. see you in the gibson. got my neons on order.

where to get started with machine learning / neural networks?
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Fast.ai course if you would like to understand it with hands on approach. Deep learning and machine learning courses on coursera by Andrew Ng if you would like to understand how it works on low level first. Kaggle if you want to practice with your skills.
It's actually incredibly easy to learn how to do it and for some reason incredibly hard to get a job
Start witb machine learning in python, follow the tutorial and learn the basic methods. Then explore deep learning
Because only two types of people work on AI. The software engineers who know enough good practical software design to implement complex systems, applying ML theory to practice. And the PhDs who do novel research and hash out the tedious math. Anything less is usually a toy not worth funding
Not really. It's just the field is not mature enough right now. Companies don't really understand what they want and what can you do from dl standpoint.
The only good thing is the field is growing rapidly and you don't need to wait for anyone. You can read papers and try to implement it yourself

While talking about ENGINEERING. Which wasnt his primary task, which was to RUN THE BUSINESS OF THE CORE TECHNOLOGIES GROUP. Why do I have to explain to a bunch of fucking underage third world mongoloids that a business needs executives who make key decisions and manage high level plans like what kind of fucking product needs to be made. Engineers are fucking dime a dozen, those eggheads made garbage like bulldozer because of bad direction.

Rory came in and said "we need to get back to our core business, x86 servers. Let's cut costs and use the new budget to hire people to make it happen." So he hires Keller who hires other people and puts together a few engineering teams and draws up business needs. He goes "hey guys, Mike Clark will be leading this project. We need x86 and ARM architectures that need to meet these power targets, costs, performance, scales to x performance or cores, and it should be a traditional architecture that runs optimally on existing software none of that funny bulldozer business. Ok get to it." Then the PMs and engineers work together to hash out what's possible by when, the engineers figure out how exactly to make the shit they've been tasked with making, and in a very rare case the VP is chief architect and will also be working on part of the project directly.

Meanwhile Lisa, also hired by Rory, is going out and meeting other company execs and pitching them on existing and upcoming projects or deals. And she's taking other people with whipping up specific details for deals, promos, business agreements like semi-custom licensing, etx

As the buck gets passed down the chain the responsibility and details become finer grain and works it's way back together to create a whole product with people ready to buy it. But without Rory, without Keller as VP, none that happens and you get good engineers making garbage like bulldozer because they're helpless without goals

You're probably the kind of retards that believes in communism
