I have a massive assortment of software ideas that I desire to articulate into reality, but I have very little knowledge regarding computer programming. I desire to learn C/C++ as they appear to be most suitable to my needs, and I would like some advice as to where I can begin and what existing software programs/Operating systems will be most useful to me.

Are the books written by Dennis Richie/Bjarne Stoustrup my best bet?

Not sure what your ideas are but these books should cover the bases. You have: "Beginning Programming with Python For Dummies" to start, followed by "Python 3 Object-Oriented Programming, 2nd Edition." Those are must read beginner material, fly through those. Then you have "Beginning Game Development with Python and Pygame" and "MakingGames" the second one being just fun to play around with. Then you have "Violent_Python_A_Cookbook_for_Hackers" if that is more your interest. You might want the Kivy documentation in case you want to make phone applications. Python being the easiest language with the most user friendly tools, documentation and community means this should be a cake walk for most people with an interest. Lastly you need to get IDLE with Python 3, because that's what these tutorials will teach.

C is a fine start for beginning programming. Consider that 90% of everything you use on a daily basis is written in C, and in most cases, the working core was written by one person. Linux, Windows, Bind, Apache, Sendmail, and Postgres, for example, are all written in C.

Use whatever operating system you want, and install a command-line based C compiler like gcc. Use whatever tutorial you want and write a program that prints your name ten times and then exits. If, upon seeing that work for the first time, you experience an endorphin rush unlike anything else you've felt before, congratulations. You probably won't be able to stop, and it'll just keep getting better and better the more you keep digging into it. If on the other hand you feel mostly irritation about all the fiddly crap you had to do to get that far, you are not a programmer. While continued use of all the fancy tools and languages that have been created over the past 20 years to "improve" programming or make it "easier" might allow you to create some things, it's going to be neither easy nor satisfying and the results will, frankly, not be that great.

print "reasonably satisfied." 

print "thanks bro"
print "took me literally only a minute to learn how to do this"
print "exhiliration if nothing else"

i used python nvm will try c later am confused with the studio.h printf way its formatted.


Anonymous 11/07/2017 (Tue) 21:25:49 [Preview] No. 11720 del

#include <stdio.h>
int main() {
puts("lol! whatever language gets dat rush!");
}


yeah, C's printf formatting is daunting at first. All you really need to get going though is %s for text, %d for ints, %f for floats, and a newline \n at the end.


printf("%s %d\n", "the universal number is", 42);

I did a correlation between the major Ad networks and have found that they converge to unique autonomous networks used for this purpose. Can you guess who controls it?

In order:
1. AS16509
2. AS15169
3. AS14618
4. AS54113
5. AS13335
6. AS14061

You can look for yourself on radb.net or using whois(1).
If you want to block those, use this command and put on your router firewall:

$ whois -h whois.radb.net -- '-i origin ASxxxxx' | grep ^route

They don't have only those. There's dozens of others AS. I will report my "research" this week, with all the things I've found...
The asiainfra is not important, btw, I found things more important than that, such as a huge overlap between microsoft networks (holded by as-microsoft, as-microsofteu and AS-HOTMAIL on radb.net) and the China Telecom, the biggest internet provider of China. Also, facebook owns very few servers. All the traffic is on Akamai, not on facebook (look at the revenue from Amazon and compare with Facebook).

Discord sucks Anonymous 10/29/2017 (Sun) 03:38:40 [Preview] No. 11609 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
You know what sucks about discord is you can't use TOR to register a username anonymously. Sure you can use it, but as soon as you change IPs once they send an e-mail verification and then demand mobile verification before you can continue to use discord.

OK, I'll never use this service then.

I hate how many email services are now demanding mobile verification now days. Thus I am the only one I know who uses a foreign email service. It's ridiculous that they are mandating your personal info just to use their services. Fuck them all. I won't use that shit.

Anon, I would love to know more about this. Is there a way to spoof mobile verifications to create emails? If so I'm excited and want to know more!

Pic related is my AVR dev board I've made last weekend, as I got tired breadboarding microcontroller every time I wanted to experiment with it. How's my layout and soldering? On the bottom of the board I've added +5v and GND header rails for easy access.

I was actually working on a simple irrigation system which is quite literally a relay hooked up to a 9 volt battery that will open or close a valve using GPIO pins but it turns out the water pressure was too much for the valve... I'll post pictures once I get a new one in the mail.

hell yeah! noice!

If you end up building a lot of this stuff, check out Kynar, also known as wire-wrapping wire, as an alternative to solid-core copper for the longer point-to-point connections on boards like that. It's a solid core 30AWG, so a smaller gauge, but very strong. I find it easier to work with, though it does need a little stripping tool (cheap) and a pair of needle-nosed pliers to take a little bit of insulation off the ends without mangling it.

Why do you have colored blobs in your captcha when you could remove them with CSS?

I am typing this on a Macbook Pro right now.

I trust Apple more than Google and Microsoft, and I have been using their products for quite some time and have been pleasantly surprised each and every time. They make their product usage extremely straightforward and simple, and it saves me time whenever I need to accomplish tasks.

How do you store your data/backups? Anonymous 07/20/2017 (Thu) 23:19:37 [Preview] No. 10460 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hie, I'm trying to find a good solution to never get out of storage on my HDDs, for my backups and my regular use.
What is your data storage solution?
I want, if possible, a solution that is the most freedom compliant.
There is the usb HDDs, 3/4 plugged on a rasp.
There is the NAS with 3.5' HDDs in it.
Maybe a cheap 20$ computer with the HDDs in it with linux installed...

What should be the best? What HDD to buy (there are these backdoors, even though I don't think I can find any without)

Thanks you!

(continued)

Another thing preppers look into is actually surviving an EMP, which your faraday cages do NOT provide a solution for. Extra food, extra water / filtration system, extra guns/ammo/mags/rem oil, extra matches/lighters, an alternative source of energy (must be EMP resistant), extra toilet paper / paper towels, extra sanitation products like soap and hand sanitizers, extra toothbrushes/toothpicks/floss... all the essentials would be nearly impossible to get in a crisis scenario such as an EMP event. Where you could get them, they would be heavily rationed and scarce too. After an EMP, there would be no mass transportion so stores would be dried out of supplies within days.

See this great prepping guide, all you need to know: https://archive.fo/dr3NH

I keep five backup toughbooks inside of a plastic bag that has been heat sealed making it waterproof. I put the laptop inside of a faraday cage which in turn is inside of a metal box made of lead. Why five laptops you may ask? Well, that is if one of them breaks, I can move to another laptop and use that one instead, and if all of my laptops break, I can find the broken parts and use working parts from another to fix it.
