ideas for saving /tech/ general Anonymous 10/16/2017 (Mon) 07:26:55 [Preview] No. 11561 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
We're about halfway through October and about two weeks out from our most esteemed /tech/nician's autistic tantrum over on /operate/:

>>>/operate/7122 it's good reading, he came in with a balloon knot and left with a rectum that you could park a utility van in

so it seems like a good time to reassess the state of the board.

Since October 1st, there have been 0.6 original posts per day on /tech/. I use the term "original" with some reservation, as some of them are just verbatim reposts from 8/tech/. There have been an average of 8.13 replies per day, but most of them were one-line comments or barbs without substance, or memes, or corrections to a previous post. We're averaging about 1 substantive reply per day. Two on a good day. I didn't feel like digging into the numbers any further, but it's my impression that these averages don't even reflect how dire the situation is, as there was a burst of activity at the beginning of the month that has tapered off significantly.

/tech/ is not dead, but it's on life support, and, ironically, none of its denizens seems to know how to service the life support machine.

It would be a shame for this alternative to pigchan and Hiroshima's /g/ to wither through neglect.

Let's brainstorm ideas for keeping this place alive.

I'm also not suggesting such, but this guy has a certain flair for possibilities and promotion:

Chans aren't dying, it's just that Reddit keeps flooding them with their stupid bullshit. This place is mostly reddit-free. 4/g/ is unbearable as it's flooded with shills and unironic W10 or GNU/systemd users. 8/tech/ is ok for the most part.

>>11656
There's nothing wrong with discussing the political side of things as SJWs flooding free software is a major problem. Free software is being subverted as we know it. You can stick your head in the sand all you want, but eventually it will bite you in the ass.

Anyone suggesting upvotes shouldn't be using image boards in the first place.

Reasons its shit:

1) IP logging
2) Posts are forever
3) Avatar fagging
4) If you change your IP it demands a phone number or you can't use the same username again if you registered.
5) Full of status messages: I'm paying fallout 4
5) It's catching on with faggots and now every chan and forum wants you to join their discord for that board. Irc didn't ever have 1-4 and wasn't as popular as discord is becoming.

There is already a thread about discord. I don't know why it bothers you so much if discord exists, just don't use it. Based on what I've seen so far most people who use it, are your average gamers talking like "omg memes kek dude lmao". On IRC there is at least some sort of discussion going on, but even there I can sense the presence of neo-/pol/-meme crap. Last day I joined #electronics on freenode and what did I get? Some dude talking about socialists. I don't know if I'm going insane, but people are talking about politics a lot more than in the past. Last US election had a really big impact on the internet, it changed people in a bad way.

IM is not great for everything, there are some genuine uses for it, but it's mostly shitposting. You need to take some time to write a meaningful post, think about the content and structure it well.

With i2p isn't there an ip you can plug in like with tor (socks5 127.0.0.1:9050) I think port 4444?? If so then you can add i2p to the mix. I think it called an out-proxy. You can also use this to run i2pd with proxychains i2pd.I have found this proxychains setup useful because running i2pd with torsocks doesn't work.

NAT should be enabled, but it isn't as important as making sure your router isn't compromised. There is FOSS router software available for maximum security, have a gander and lurk.

I use a cheap but private VPN service, with encryption and (allegedly) no IP logging reading the ToS.

I do not use wifi, that is insecure. My wifi chip in my computer (along with the bluetooth chip and camera) have been physically removed. Linux of-course.

I use Mozilla Firefox for the most part, sometimes Tor too.

One thing I do is make sure I manually program Bleachbit to scrub sqlite files in my browser directory routinely. Logs, caches, cookies etc: content-prefs.sqlite, cookies.sqlite, formhistory.sqlite, healthreport.sqlite, places.sqlite, signons.sqlite, webappsstore.sqlite (and their associated file formats) from my browser directory. Tor too stores these same kinds of databases, so any browser you use you'll want to learn what is in those directories and what they store.

Then, I also use Random Agent Spoofer to spoof my browser agent (spoofing metadata about what OS I use, what kind of browser it is, headers, get requests, etc.) and also allows me to disable webgl and geolocation in chrome.

I also use noscript and HTTPS Everywhere. Scrub noscript whitelist and reconfigure the list to your liking, whatever suites your browsing habits.

Go to about:config and learn how to use it, but be careful!!! There are some tweaks you can use to fortify and secure your browser, and to make it stop bragging about data.

Also, why would you trust single DNSCrypt resolver when anybody can make one and claim to keep no logs and serve legit queries? It would be better to fail-proof with multiple server queries at least.

Even if they said their software was open source, it would be irrelevant. There would be no way to tell whether or not that's what they were actually running unless its behaviour deviated in a noticeable way from the code they claimed to be running. Then you'd only know that they weren't. You can never be sure they are.

IRC is simply inconvenient by any communication standards.
It is volatile, and doesn't keep message history on the server.
Multi-user chat concept is retarded for anything beyond game sessions, bots and casual shitposting. Group voice calling software and XMPP/Discord conferences with history supersede it for gamers.
Threaded forum boards and Slack supersede it for serious discussions where you can always connect to server and review old messages.
Finally, today IRC means connect to "our" IRC server hosted by third-party like Freenode, basically reddit in denial.

Advanced users of GNU/Linux (and I mean advanced), remember to try Source Mage GNU/Linux. True source-based distribution, and (in contrast with Gentoo and Arch) is:
Free from obfuscated and pre-configured code.
Fully committed to GPL, uses only free software (as in freedom) in their main package.
With even the documentation licensed as FDL.
Without 3rd party patches, sensible defaults or masked packages.
Doesn't need obfuscated python libraries, only bash.
No systemd (they've implemented their own init scripts system http://sourcemage.org/Init).
Uses clean dependencies as they came from upstream developers, which by the same provides instant updates.
Can heal broken installs.
Can also use flags.

Do you like Arch Linux's AUR? Do you like Gentoo's portage (or ports-like) package manager? With SMGL's "sorcery" you get all that. Making new spells (package build files) not found in the grimoire (repository of spells) is easy http://sourcemage.org/Spell/Book

Bash hackers welcome! Come and join http://sourcemage.org/

Installing SMGL is easy, here's the simplified process:

Virtual Distro Hopping Anonymous 11/20/2017 (Mon) 20:09:06 [Preview] No. 11773 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Let's see what's the state of the Linux desktop in the current year of the Linux desktop. For this purpose I setup a virtual machine with qemu. You'll find more details on the arch wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/QEMU - I create some dedicated space to install the distro and download or torrent legally the NET install ISO from the distro's homepage.
qemu-img create -f qcow2 fedora27.cow 20G

I run qemu with sudo, so I can use kvm. kvm allows you to use your whole CPU. You can use kvm as non-privileged user, by creating a new group in your udev rules. But I'm too lazy for that.
sudo qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 4G -cdrom /path-to-your-folder/fedora27_x86_64.iso -boot order=d -drive file=fedora27.cow

First Distro I'm trying is Fedora 27. Installation is quick, you need to click on some options, but that's it, the rest is done in the background. If you want more control, you need to find the options first though. It uses wayland as standard. No more screen tearing, but without GPU passthrough to the virtual machine, it uses the CPU to render the graphics. 3D graphics and wayland slow down the whole thing and CPU is constantly over 50%. To test wayland better another test from a live image would be necessary. The bars on top are not as big as they used to be. The software looks uniform. Accessing software with the activities tab and then searching through very big icons is not practical. There is not so much software, but the installation size is still big. Firefox and LibreOffice take a lot of space. You can't rice or adapt much of the desktop, but you can download different styles.
My impression is that Gnome looks clean and can be used out of the box as is. It hides as much as possible from the user. It has the best touch screen and wayland support so far. I don't like the usability concept with the hidden software, it's too much optimized for touch devices in the mind. It might be interesting for someone who has a 2-in-1 device or likes the look and feel of Gnome to really use this as desktop. Fedora is a bit strange as distribution, as they ship classic releases with stable software from a due date, but also ship the latest kernel. The perfect distribution for Linus Torvalds, but not for the imageboard neckbeard.

Gentoo.

I used only Debian and few derivatives, then switched for Gentoo. It's very good, but compiling may be slow at old computer. Still worth it. It just werks.

I am actually in search of comfy binary distro, is Devuan good? Currently trying out Void Linux for flashdrive install. I don't like it a lot, probably just because am not familiar with it. I consider just doing Gentoo there with heavy stuff like portage tree and compiling being done on home computer.

The best linux distro is your own.

Basically anything without systemd (gentoo, void, etc..). Gentoo is a good way to make you learn how to actually build your own distro (ofc, you'll need to understand the LFS process etc..).

WPA2 protocol attack Anonymous 10/17/2017 (Tue) 06:41:08 [Preview] No. 11568 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
https://www.krackattacks.com/

>We discovered serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). Concretely, attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted. This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on. The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites.

>The weaknesses are in the Wi-Fi standard itself, and not in individual products or implementations. Therefore, any correct implementation of WPA2 is likely affected. To prevent the attack, users must update affected products as soon as security updates become available. Note that if your device supports Wi-Fi, it is most likely affected. During our initial research, we discovered ourselves that Android, Linux, Apple, Windows, OpenBSD, MediaTek, Linksys, and others, are all affected by some variant of the attacks. For more information about specific products, consult the database of CERT/CC, or contact your vendor.

The Q&A is worth reading, and has information on attack mitigations. Unfortunately, if you are using an Android smartphone that isn't receiving updates anymore, your WiFi security on that device is probably null.

CPU, RAM, GPU: 1x single board computer

A Single Board Computer provides every component needed to build laptop, except for battery, display, keyboard and case, each of which can be added separately.

Single Board Computers provide CPU, RAM, GPU, motherboard and some other integrated features on a single board. They are full desktop computer system that is sufficiently small and low power consuming to be used as a mobile, DIY laptop. They are also very low cost (<$50).

The most important feature of Single Board Computers is that there are models that are fully open source. It is possible to build a fully functional laptop with Free Software only, including free firmware, wireless and 3D video acceleration drivers. It is even possible to get SBCs with open source hardware designs.

For reference:

Single Board Computers with free 3D video acceleration (Etnaviv)
Nitrogen6X ($225): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC2000, 2 GB DDR3, best option, compatible with mainline kernels
Nitrogen6_MAX ($299): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC3000, 4 GB DDR3, faster Nitrogen6X
Wandboard QuadPLUS ($139): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC3000, 2 GB DDR3, cheaper version of Nitrogen6_MAX, not mainline

Charger

The DIY Modular Open Source Laptop is designed to be charged by any combination of solar panel, handcrank generator, USB AC adapter, USB car charger, USB port or thermoelectric generator. Unlike most rechargeable electronics, each charger can charge the USB powerbank battery of the DIY laptop seperately from the DIY laptop. This flexible and modular charging ensures the DIY laptop never runs out of energy, yet never needs to be charged either.

For reference
USB solar charger: SOKOO 22W 5V 2-Port USB Portable Foldable Solar Charger ($55)
Handcrank generator: K-TOR Pocket Socket Hand Crank Generator Portable Power Supply 10 Watts 120 Volts ($60)
Pedal generator: K-tor Power Box 20 Watt Pedal Generator ($200)
Thermoelectric generator: Camping Stove Thermoelectric Generator TEG Power - Devil Watt 15 Watt ($304)

Each reference charger can provide the 5V 2A needed to charge a USB powerbank at full speed. The most convenient charger will depend on the situation.

Solar panels can provide >150 W unattended outdoors at daytime.
Handcrank or pedal generators can provide <150 W attended indoors or outdoors, day or night. Handcrank generators can be used while standing or moving, but pedal generators can be used while also using the DIY laptop.
Thermoelectric generators can provide >150 W unattended outdoors, day or night. Indoors with ventilation.
USB AC adapters can be used wherever there is AC electric grid.
USB car adapters can be used with most DC electricity sources such as 12 V car batteries or six 1.5 V AA batteries in series. USB car adapters can also convert DC from solar panels, thermoelectric generators, handcrank generators, DC wind or hydroelectric turbines into 5V DC for charging the DIY laptop.

This machine before your eyes is extremely powerful, a machine that grants its user access to all of the information conceived by the human species. It is capable of performing highly complicated mathematical calculations thousands, possibly millions of times faster than your typical human, and can store massive amounts of information, perhaps a library filled with thousands of books stored on this little machine, too massive for a measly individual to read in their lifetime, is reality.

When these sophisticated and wondrous machines had begun to appear in the 80's and 90's, the savvy individuals saw them for what they were, highly capable machines that would greatly change the world. They had taken advantage of this, and they became the first hackers, people armed with these extremely powerful tools. Companies and marketers observed this new medium and knew they could gain great wealth using it, and the mainstream mediums with the purpose of entertaining were born.

If only people knew just how powerful that little "phone" in their hand truly was. What a great time to be alive, so many ignorant fellows bickering about the problems in the world and how the past was such a great era, with no knowledge of what is truly happening at this moment.

I don't think I'm that intelligent. Really.
Actually, if you haven't understood the statements above, then it's my fault, not yours.

What you have said is true, except that there is no distinction between "computers" and "internet", it's the same. The interpretation of the informations on this internet is that is distinct from the computers.

About the text above (>>11303), I probably haven't explained properly.
Let's come back and do an analysis of your OP. You said:
>access to all of the information conceived by the human species.
That is not true, because we can access on computers only the information we produced, not the information we thought. Inside our heads there's much more information, that we can't express because these informations are not capable of being expressed with normal language (scripted or phonetic). That's why we have art, but even with art, complex thoughts can't be expressed because they are more of an experience through senses.
>performing highly complicated mathematical calculations
It does, but we should not just assume that mathematics is the "truth language". This is silly. Mathematics is a language used to express classical logic. So we should question if this classical logic is correct. If you go down the "rabbit hole", you'll notice that the foundations of science is not as solid as people think.

So, on my first comment I was just criticising your argument about "access to all of the information", basically.


About your AI idea, it seems cool, but that will take a huge effort and our understanding about human thoughts is not entire predictable, since we have no predictable model of the mind yet, and without all the variables you can't calculate.

All computers do past its true value as an efficiency chamber is create the illusion that an individual can achieve something when it's actually achieved by society as a whole. OP is wrong. Computers aren't helping us build cathedrals more magnificent or formulate philosophy more poignant, if anything it convinces us of the unworthiness of such attempts at beauty.

Basically, anything particularly useful that's done with computers is already done by massive superclusters that there can only be a few of in existence, or its tasks that have been done for ages by houses full of several people. It can be done by a single person with a PC, but giving them all a PC will not stack and only gets you repeated instances of those people doing the same thing over and over again. Ten million athletes will improve the world record only by milliseconds from the record of one million athletes. All it does is the athletes become less versed with anything else and become obtuse and preoccupied with their field, worse philosophers and worse voters.

Meanwhile, the only real innovation of personal computing is that once dumbed down enough we can now decrease the amount we actually have to commute to the same building to work.

I try not to worry about the future too much. For now I am part of a welcoming community bonded with free software. I will admit though, there is political influence making its way into tech. When the old members that act like pillars die, there is every chance freedom will be outlawed.

Bit torrent and P2P communities will be what temporarily saves the internet for past and current generations. Future generations won't know anything about the current internet and less than 1% will ever use P2P software rendering the internet into commercialized networks much like we see on TV.

I agree, backup everything and make sure you have multiple backups. But this won't save the internet forever as the mindless public capitulates to the total destruction of everything that made the internet so great.

If the original intenet ever goes, I'll go with it, and I won't be buying a bunch of "smart" tech or other commercialized crap. I'll be reading books, watching DVDs, throwing darts and drinkin' booze from a jar again. Going back to simpler times like the early 80s.

Who agrees?

Tor sort of works now but there's no official Tor-OpenRC script besides the deprecated AUR version of that script. Also, UseEntryGuardsAsDirGuards is deprecated, Endwall might need to update his endtorrc file.

Yeah I noticed this a while ago and updated the file in endconf.git but forgot to copy it to the rest of the repo locations. Should be updated now. I guess the whole idea is that there is a best way to do something, (Tor settings for instance), so lets find that best way and spread it.

I've been off of the ball for a while though. For instance I noticed recently that xtrac-ytpl.sh has stopped working. I'll look at this next weekend, but I've got homework up the wazoo.

I strongly believe that binary package based distributions are not the way to go for security. You're trusting the packager or the packaging team not to insert their own backdoor or malware, and you have no way to check if that has happened. Everything running on a secure computer has to have been compiled from source that is resident on your computer. That way if you suspect that something is wrong, you can at least check. I don't have the time or the expertise to do this but there are enough computer security experts out there that will, and will hopefully raise a red flag in a blog post, or in an article, or publicize it in a bug tracker. Right now, by using parabola (debian, ubuntu,mint,fedora,etc) , I'm trusting the packager that they don't work for an Intelligence agency of some small European country, or for a hacking team operating out of Russia. If they get caught (unlikely) they can just change their fake name and move on to the next distribution of linux (if they're not already doing it to the packages there as well).

I generally fell off of the wagon when I realized that my computer hardware and operating system were a major point of unreliability, and the probable source of my leak and privacy issues.

Binary package based distributions are a good place to start for someone learning to use GNU/Linux, but they're not the place to be for secure / private systems. Those are just my opinions, I'm not an expert in computer security, but by talking about it we'll get to the bottom of this eventually.

Endware is a suite of programs geared towards internet privacy, security, and anonymity.

Endwall: endwall.sh is an iptables based firewall script designed to be implemented on any linux distribution shipped with iptables. endwall.sh is based on default drop policies, coupled with a novel strategy of passing packets on local host ports only for those enabled by the enduser. It comes with a variety of well used ports enabled with several additional port passing configurations available by uncommenting the script. It provides essential security to a new user.

Endsets: endsets.sh is a script that adds blacklisting and whitelisting functionality to endwall.sh. It depends on the program ipset. It is persistent on reboot if you enable ipset as a service. This is the recommended blacklisting tool for endwall if you are running a server or planning on opening up ports and services to the public and will require daily blacklisting of new incomming IPs.

Endlists: endlists.sh is a traditional text file list based blacklisting and whitelisting script. It has slow performance, and can't be updated on the fly. Good for <1000 ip subnets, very tedious and slow to run for more than that. Blocks the IPs by adding them as individual rules to the iptables ruleset. Works but not recommended for heavy duty on a server. May be useful for workstation use to block ip ranges if you are not opening up ports and services to public clients.

Endtools: endtools are a collection of scripts including alogz.sh, mlogz.sh, spamlogz.sh and iplookup.py. These scripts will help to service an enduser of endwall in adminstering endsets/endlists.

iplookup.py is a geoiplookup script written in python and requires python and pygeoip. It has simmilar functionality to maxmind's geoiplookup program and uses the maxmind *.dat files.

spamlogz.sh is a script that searches through log files to find flagged log entries flagged in endwall.sh, endsets.sh and endlists.sh.

alogz.sh is a daily log reading script designed to read the output of an apache http server's log output.

mlogz.sh is a daily log reading script designed to read the output of a postfix smtp server's log output.

>How's it going so far? Also, stay healthy.

I just wrote a paragraph and it got wiped out when I went to get the captcha block bypass. I'll try to rewrite it:

I'm on it. I am stuffed up with homework, I have a major project due on Monday, and a midterm on Monday, so its not happening this weekend. My next free spot to try is on Thursday, I have a midterm next Friday, so realistically next Saturday is optimal.

I haven't tried to write it yet, it should take about 30min-1hr, but I just need a free 3hr stretch where I have time to start it.

Health. Funny you should mention that, because I've been sick with a mystery illness that started in June 2016 and lasted until 2 weeks ago October 2017. It started like flu but then moved into a persistent cough followed by a long duration sinus infection. It was probably antibiotic resistant pneumonia or meningitis and it fucked my year up. I went to the doctor like 5 or 6 times and got a bunch of different antibiotics and nasal sprays that did nothing. It fucked me up hardcore and ruined my entire year. I might have been poisoned, but I'm not sure. It also could have been a bio-weapon, or due to the mass influx of immigration bringing more non indigenous diseases.

I think I'm better now, but I think my mom has it now.

I've been on 4hrs of sleep all week because of school. Anyways I'll work on the revisions to pdfclean.sh next Saturday. I'll make it happen. Thanks for your patience.

Look into colloidal silver, MSM crystals, liposomal vitamin C, and air ozonators. Your life and your mother's life depends on it.

might as well recommend magnesium citrate, citric acid, bee propolis, licorice root, distilled water, breathing exercises, ketogenic diet, core exercises, castile soap (practically all mainstream shampoos and soap bars are carcinogenic), this guy's youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/HerbsPlusBeadWorks/videos and look around this site http://www.carposbotanicals.com/index.php/en/

Functionality has been added.

$ pdfclean file.pdf
$ pdfclean --all
$ pdfclean --help
$ pdfclean --version

I would probably separate the clean files into their own directory as one slight improvement. I also have to look into why pdfmetadata stopped working for me and try to reinstall it.

I might do that later, but I have to get back to homework. Thanks for the idea, keep them coming and I'll get around to coding them...

Thanks for the advice on the vitamins and MSM, i'm taking some of that. Also Probiotics, and Olive Leaf Extract and Oregano I take that all with vitamin D. I ran out of coloidal silver, I'll get some more of that.

I still have some slight sinus problems, it's lingering...Whatever this was/is it's bad.

Get a nasal spray and use colloidal silver to spray it in your nostrils three times a day. You can also breath in said colloidal silver water so that it goes to your lungs. Breathing in ozonated air will be very harsh and will make you cough up mucus and everything else inside your lungs, nasal passages, throat, etc., but after it all comes out and your body calms down (after drinking some water, preferably distilled ionized water) you would feel cleaner and you'll breathe better at least for 15 minutes after the inflamed effects of oxidation stops, although it's really the charged singlet oxygen atom formed after breaking down from ozone into O2 and O that has that effect in going against free radicals.

I use a 2,000 ppm colloidal silver solution which I dilute it. I think it's still available on (((Amazon))). MSM crystals tastes bitter so take with magnesium citrate or even magnesium ascorbate so that you can get your magnesium and vitamin C at once. Preferably, take it with your vitamins and supplementation. Also, look into taking high dosages of both chlorella and spirulina, though make sure it's high quality, broken cell wall for chlorella for higher absorption, and don't buy blue-green algae from klamanth lake, it's not clean. Here's another good youtube channel but this time from the ONLY vegan that interests me since he got high levels of B12 without supplementing it, check his perfect bloodwork video for more info on how (spoiler: he takes lots of chlorella). https://www.youtube.com/user/watershed11/videos

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.

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);
