Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

If anyone can modify code of free software, why don't people make better versions of programs like GIMP and other free alternatives to professional software? Shouldn't we have several versions of different free programs?

>>2404 >http://archive.fo/XZvng Autism was strong on both sides on this. Does the furry fuck think he's the president, acting high and mighty because he was too important to be dragged into it? The other dude doing the port wasn't too reasonable either. I understand his frustration since a random nobody showed up DEMANDING shit like some authoritarian leader. But he was also a sore autist shit. "Petulant children", and dropping the project altogether for a minor altercation.
>>2801 >What's left to do? Tool that draws circles and squares. GIMP is the only image editor on the planet that doesn't have this.
The one and only reason people don't fix shit is because: >1. It takes a long ass time to learn a codebase in 2020. Have you seen the absurd LOC in modern projects? >2. Projects are not documented enough to be openly hackable >3. Nobody enjoys trying to make sense of C codebases with a thousand imported header files and single-letter variables, specially when they are not well commented. >4. Some developers have some loud and ass-backwards opinions and they will reject your patches because of some vague notions about hoe it doesn't fit the project's philosophy. People are afraid of having their efforts thrown away due to some dude's ego. Open development suffers from the gigantic autism of the average developer. Hackable software needs some extensive documentation and not many programmers are up to that task, which causes people to be afraid of diving deep into it.

Could a virus stop super A.I.? Anonymous 05/07/2020 (Thu) 20:22:36 No.2782 [Reply]
Someone i know is doing HNC (Scottish) networking in college and they seem to be confident that they could just develop a virus that could destroy general A.I., something that will be infinitely more intelligent than us, i would think something so intelligent would have countermeasures against petty viruses. Can it actually be done or is he niggerlicious?

>>2782 Heh, the very fact you made this post 'guarantees the super-AI will read it and take appropriate counter-measures to stop us. YOU HAD ONE JOB OP WE'RE ALL DOOOOOMED REEEEEEE Oh well, we had a good run tbh
>>2782 >Can it actually be done Maybe, maybe not, they certainly shouldn't be confident they have a reliable failsafe.
>>2782 depends on the AI's hubris

looking books that talks about making system like this specifically https://youtu.be/8c264xk15o4 [Open] or something liek sega arcade stuffs (power drift, space harrier, air rescue, aqua jack so on etc) especially the physics model and how stuff sticks and not fall thru the floors despite the gaps between things and maybe lack of polygon meshes? perhaps the behind the scene/making of logic... hopefully includes several model/solutions of troubleshooting the same thing of why and whynots Thank you!
