Vichan to LynxChan migration script Anonymous 12/17/2017 (Sun) 18:48:16 [Preview] No. 11981 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

I finished cleaning up a migration script that was started a long time ago, also included a correct read-me on it.

Something that was missing on it was handling some files correctly, vichan isn't too consistent with thumbnail info on posts.

Any recommendation for Christmas?

I'm not into Christian traditions, but I would recommend something like anything from Ghibli (such as Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Princess Mononoke and Howl's moving castle) or Mushishi, if you're into japanese animation (they are trully masterpieces, seriously).
Or, for movies, something like Mr. Nobody, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Gattaca, A.I (2001) and Being There (1979).
If you're into art, watch the Valtari project short-films from Sigur Ros, they are great (you can find on youtube, I recommend "Ekki mukk").
For music, I can recommend you some classics (if you haven't listened it yet) like Gymnopedie (Eric Satie), Adagio for Strings (Samuel Barber), Tristesse (Chopin), Sonata No.3 in B Minor (Chopin), Air on the G string (Sebastian Bach). More modern composers such as Ludovico Einaudi, Hans Zimmer and Adrian von Ziegler have great opus too. Or something calm (or hipster, if you like) such as Bon Iven, Glen Hansard, Aimer, Mogwai, M83, Faun, Oasis, etc.

Just some things I like. Hope you check some of 'em.

Groundhog Day, but actually I hate it. For very /tech/ reasons, I would imagine. Autism.

What I've come upon to watch on Christmas is dystopian satire like 12 Monkeys, Brazil and Repo! The Genetic Opera. They also tend to feature snow quite often which I swear is a coincidence, but the tone is just somehow Christmasy to me. Also possibly for very /tech/ reasons, but I won't get into that.

Christmas inheritance: its about a spoiled heiress(daughter of a CEO) who who has a selfish fiance. Her father forces her to go to a small town to understand where the company started, and she falls in love with the place and an average joe. I've watched a bunch of them because my family likes them, and this one was above average. They're all nice for a change because you know Christmas movies will have a happy ending.
Pic deserves to be a Christmas movie.

lowRISC: another year bites the dust? Anonymous 10/18/2017 (Wed) 05:41:40 [Preview] No. 11571 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

>When can I buy a lowRISC SoC?
>As with most tech projects, the most accurate answer is “When it’s ready”.
>We are expecting to crowdfund an initial instantiation of the lowRISC platform during the course of 2017.

I'm pretty sure the lowRISC FAQ said 2016 last year. It didn't happen, obviously, and it was changed to 2017, but we're running out of that, too. Ten weeks left, boys. Is a lowRISC SoC vaporware for another year?

At what point do we start looking to the J-x processors based on Hitachi's SuperH architecture? The last SH-4 patents are expiring this year.

The majority of them are garbage.

Has anyone discovered or created a search engine that allows the user to set parameters to exclude certain websites? The massive majority of search engines have little features and space for user input (Searx is probably the closest to what is ideal).

I wish Amazon would make their own search engine and compete with Google. They could do it, just look at Amazon Echo. They probably don't because if they infringe on Google's monopoly Google will retaliate hard and hurt Amazon's profits.

HP keylogger Anonymous 12/10/2017 (Sun) 20:13:39 [Preview] No. 11897 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Because most of them are dumb fucks that don't see a point about that, since they see it as "conspiracy theory".

Hi tech, i'm tired of windows.

I will go to linux, but I need know which linux i will usage.

I am in doubt between the backbox and Kali Linux, if you have more recommendations, I accept (debian priorizer).

I have a 4GB pendrive, is it enough to change the operating system?

That individual (Not even sure if the creator of that post is a human, but the statistics say that it should be), is not me.

It is quite annoying to be told to "fuck off" whenever one asks for advice or help. The OP was clearly incompetent, but that doesn't mean we should get one less person off of windows.

I use Xubuntu currently, an older version of it, works pretty good for basic use but to tell you the truth I also have Windows XP on a separate offline PC (mostly for using media converting tools and DVD shrink which you cannot find for the linux OS).

See React OS instead of FreeDOS. Seems to have better development.

A friend of mine does this with rather good results. WinME isn't all that bad so long as you feed it plenty of ram.

FreeDOS and ReactOS are two totally different things with totally different goals. I wouldn't expect ReactOS to have any better DOS compatibility than NT (which was really poor, and getting worse).

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.

Medically speaking red fluorescent lightning. Green if you need shades, blue for the blind. Dark on low light: keeps eyes calm non-stressed. Other things include raised desktop to stand and walk, split ortholinear keyboard, small desktop or window to leaves the eyes still as possible. Treadmill on monitor with a pad keyboard is best.

Newb programming question Anonymous 12/07/2017 (Thu) 10:13:10 [Preview] No. 11858 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Hey guys, I wanted to write a script that will halve hex colour values and add together all possible combinations from 16 colours, making 256 colours. I suppose I could just halve the values to begin with, so really all I need to do is add hex value together to create all possible combinations. I have some python experience but still muddling through. Rare pepe for troubles.

Anonymous 12/07/2017 (Thu) 10:25:42 [Preview] No.11859 del
I don't think there is a library to do hex math directly in python. I think I need to define a hex converter, convert to int, do the sum, convert back.

Anonymous 12/08/2017 (Fri) 15:18:26 [Preview] No.11878 del
That's cool, but it's not really what I'm after. The way I think this should be handled is with 16 lists, each containing the red, green and blue value. eg:
rgb0 = [21, 21, 21]
rgb1 = [32, 32, 32]
rgb2 = [48, 48, 48]

I want to find all possible combinations of adding the values in those lists one to each other at a time. I can do one on one with numpy:
import numpy as np
np.add(rgb0, rgb0)
np.add(rgb0, rgb1)
np.add(rgb0, rgb2)
np.add(rgb1, rgb1)
np.add(rgb1, rgb2)
np.add(rgb2, rgb2)

What I think I need now is some logic to do it in sequence. I know there will be duplicates but thankfully the total combination will be 256 which is the exact number of colours in a palette. Then just to output to file.
