Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer.

The same way AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can also be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS vastly nastier than Stuxnet.

American military made a grave mistake to partner with the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.

How about starting off with why someone should consider learning it, and what uses it has?

>>74
Yeahh it's been a while

Anyways, Haskell is a pure functional, statically typed language. Most of the recent research results make their way into Haskell relatively fast. It's a different approach to programming than the traditional methods, but I believe this is going to be the future.
It is a general purpose language despite pushing for academical features, so you can do pretty much anything in it. As for why someone should consider learning it, well I believe that overall, the very expressive type system and type driven programming in general can lead to reduction of many common errors, the functional approach succeeds in reducing the amount of boilerplate one needs to write as well. I don't think I can put it too well into words, so I can demonstrate some examples maybe


fib = 1 : scanl (+) 1 fib

That declares fib, the infinite sequence of fibonacci numbers. This uses lazy evaluation, one of the main features of Haskell. scanl is a function that takes a function, a starting element, and a list, and produces a new list of
[starting_element, f(starting_element, element_of_list1), f(f(starting_element, element_of_list1), element_of_List2)...]
"1 :" part just prepends 1 to a list. The novel concept here is that fib can be defined in terms of itself, because of laziness. So we say that fib has a 1 in the beginning (the 1 : part) and the rest of the list is scanl (+) 1 fib which, as we said, is a list [1, f(1, first_element_of_fib), ...]
But what lazy evaluation accomplishes here is the fact that scanl doesn't need to generate all of the list at once. In fact, lazy evaluation is what allows you to have infinite lists. It only takes what it needs. As we saw, to generate the first element, scanl doesn't need any data, it's just 1. To generate the second element, it only needs to get the first element of fib (given by 1 :), to get the third element it only needs the second and first element of fib (1 : and the last one generated by scanl). You might be starting to see what I mean.

A simpler example would be

What do you guys think about GrapheneOS? If you have a pixel should you flash it or just stick to Lineage?

 No.65

It looks pretty good, I wish it only supported more devices than just google devices though. If you are debating on which one to install on your pixel, I'd say just chose one and work in a way so that you won't be too bothered to switch back to something more familiar if you don't like it later on

 No.67

Opinions on /e/ OS? I'm thinking of switching to it soon cause it seems to support my device. The whole alt-cloud they offer is a bit weird, but doesn't seem required

/e/ is just lineageos so there isn't really a point to using it compared to lineage unless you really like the ecosystem

Do you spend long periods away from electricity/internet? If you do, then yes, you're right.

But if it's a case of just moving your things from once house to the next, it's not as bad as you may be imagining, certainly you wouldn't have to reinstall anything. Use your init system to bring up e.g. nginx on startup. Connect ethernet. Then all you need to do is port forward the router to the SBC. It should take a few minutes.

I should mention, if you plan on having a clearnet domain, updating your IP on whatever nameserver you intend to use could be an additional complication. This can be auomated with a DDNS, I personally use afraid.org, there are many.

If you host over Tor or similar, you can ignore this.

I use ssdnode anon. They have a great value compared to vultr and digitalocean if you pay for a couple years at a time.

Like any hosting service it is way more computer than you you need for just a blog. I agree with nixx if that's all you need. I use mine for backups, my website, email hosting and big web sstommes.

get a tiny 128mb ram debian vps at gullo.me

 No.66

There do seem to be a few companies that are giving away free VPSs, usually at quite a low spec (but enough for a webserver and mail for sure)

One company called euserv seems to give a 1 core, 1gb ram, 10gb storage vps for free. I've tried registering to them with a fake name and number through tor, but it seems they have a manual verification process, so you need to be a bit better at making a fake identity than I was if you really want to stay private (though they don't ask for much more than most other VPS companies)

Another good bet is taking at a look at oracle's "always free" options. They are giving away either a x86_64 2 cores, 1GB ram, 50GB disk server or if you are fine with using ARM then you can get a quad-core system with 24GB ram (pretty good considering its free, "forever")

However as much as I'd like to shill for oracle's amazing free deals, they do require a credit card number (never charged anything though), and they only offer their service to a limited number of countries (though ive heard that people have been able to bypass this with vpns) Also there's also the fact that oracle isn't exactly one of the most trustworthy companies out there.

Though at the end of the day,
a 24GB ram is enough for something like a medium sized minecraft server to play with several friends, especially considering that its free.

Honestly gyroscope and accelerometers inside phones (at least for me) has become one of those unnecessary pains I have to deal with. Currently I'm running lineageos, and to my knowledge, I haven't given any apps access to that data (of course except the system itself). Asides from autorotate (which I always keep off), whats the point of those sensors even being there anymore?

>Not even phones are safe
What do you mean? Safe from what? It’s already a tracking device you willingly carry around that they can triangulate.

 No.61

That's why you use lineage or graphene where you can revoke sensor permissions

If you don't want to learn it as your primary career, but rather to supplement whatever else you're doing, my genuine recommendation would actually be to learn web dev. It's easy and thus mocked, but it's basically never not in demand.

Other than that, you could take advice from >>39 and learn an easier language like Python. I'm not sure what archiving is going to involve, but I've found learning a scripting language to automate tasks is also a highly rewarding experience.

What does archiving involve? That might help.

I wouldn't recommend anything more masochistic than the above, unless you're either interested, or are making it a career.

I've been looking at alternative operating systems for a while, and stumbled upon illumos. I honestly hadn't heard of it before, but from what it looks like its a derivative of opensolaris.

How should I approach trying to switch to something like this full time? Which distro would you reccomend? Any reasons I shouldn't give it a go?

 No.52

I'm not sure I'd like something with binary blobs, but I have heard of Illumos before and it has some interesting features, like ZFS, DTrace, and containers, etc. I think it's good to have a knowledge of operating systems that don't use the Linux kernel, as a backup plan of sorts.

>How should I approach trying to switch to something like this full time?

I think the answer to this question is always just to use it as a daily driver for a period of time, and either it'll work for you or it won't. You'll be forced to learn to some degree on the way.

>Any reasons I shouldn't give it a go?

Not unless you have anything more important to be doing.

Use Tribblix which is a fork that’s actually maintained by one man, Peter Tribble.
