Dear lord. Jesus how drunk was this guy. Not terribly brutal though I did chuckle
sorry. I've heard a lot more brutal flight recorders than that. True terror in their voices. The best last words was probably that one pilot who said "this is it baby!" I feel like he should've been flying Southwest.

One of the absolute shittier ones was it was the F/O who pretty much was responsible at least partly for the mistake that killed everyone--except him. He survived. He ended up with brain damage and in a wheelchair missing a leg, but he lived, and turned into an alcoholic.
I think he sounds cringey as hell in interviews though, as if he's somehow the biggest victim.

My friend's dad sometimes instructs weekend warriors on small aircraft at a local airfield. I remember him saying the US government added more red tape after 01. It's easiest if you were born in the US, can provide all the proper documentation, and have no criminal record. I believe they'll even check with your employer so don't be surprised when they do.

Hello Ernst,

Some of us are playing EpochCraft

It's basically an /int/craft spinoff, you roleplay as kingdoms and city-states during the Wars of the Diadochi. There is a lot of diplomacy autism involved

The server is running custom mods on a custom map made by dedicated devs, so there is chariot and pike warfare, period accurate weapons, bronze armor and linothorax, period accurate building blocks, ancient ruins, support for exporting hentai to maps etc.

Some of us are playing as Pontus, our national Discord is here: https://discord.gg/hvbHA2RDsq

The server opens to the public tomorrow at 3PM EST, come join us (select Pontus in #nation-select). You'll need to be whitelisted to play (get your IGN and discord tag verified), the server discord link is here: https://discord.gg/NXtV57Xrd5

I noticed that there's been quite a lot of technology related discussions on EC recently, that get washed away in the today thread before getting much discussion. We also have separate threads for hardware, software, technology in general, all of which don't get much activity.
So this thread would unify all of those discussions, and have a common place to talk about computer stuff.
Discuss OSes, hardware, programming, computing in general, the Internet, etc., here in this thread. Share opinions about how computer technology is shit, SHIT! also give each other advice.
No. 56443
Well, maybe, but if you gonna make them understand programming easily, I think it will be better to explain stuff like "system bus", "memory address", "clock". It may help avoid confusion in places in my opinion, especially when you start to teach someone with 0 knowledge about everything some high-level programming language with layers of abstraction

I have finished the first two tomes of Kotkin's Stalin. Now I must wait for the third and final to be published.

The first volume (Paradoxes of Power, 1878-1928) is primarily concerned with setting up the geopolitical scene around Stalin's time of birth, and then how the young Georgian revolutionary partook in the various revolutionary movements and events of the early Russian 20th century. From being a poor Georgian kid to being the undisputed leader of 1/6th of the world. From studying at a seminary, to emerging victorious in party politics.

The second volume (Waiting for Hitler, 1929-1941) has Stalinism itself appear. From forced collectivization and 5 year plans to the Great Purge and to Stalin failing to see the impending German invasion. Definitely a more Stalin-centric tome than the previous, while still providing an image of what is happening in the outside world.

The Soviet project, how it was enacted, what drove it and what allowed extraordinary suffering to fall upon the Soviet people is all categorically documented. Different characters within Stalin's sphere are in effect given their own biography, while an entire plethora of revolutionaries, oppositionists, artists and scientists also have their life briefly summed up. This allows for one to see how different people interacted with the revolution and how it interacted with them.

Are religious people going to preach about Jesus to aliens who are significantly more advanced than us, right before they zap us like bugs?

Survivorship bias is the only reason Christianity survived this far. The strongest material culture enforced Christianity. If the Aztecs would have been more advanced than the Spanish we'd all be sacrificing on pyramids.

The Middle East and North Africa are Muslim now, but they used to be Christian. The Christians there got removed by Muslims. Do you think the same thing will happen to "the way, the truth, and the life" when a stronger lifeform encounters us and dismantles our planet for resources?

Depending how the machine works, a nano weapon could just become a big galactic problem over time because it could take just one comet or something smashing into the planet to spray it everywhere. Granted it would be on long enough timescales to be largely irrelevant in the scheme of things but still. Organic life however will eventually die. It's not likely anything would survive a trip through space, so it preserves the number one and two rule about weapon development which is never develop something you dont want used against you eventually and don't shoot yourself with your own weapon. I just think a nanoplague has too many drawbacks to actually think about using.

You're forgetting the kinds of timescales were are talking about here. I mean yeah sure you could easily just glass it if you're in a rush, but spraying bioweapons are the kind of thing that unless you had instantaneous portals or the fleet is on standbye in orbit it's really not a problem at all waiting for several years. I suppose it would really work down to circumstances, which could also include the fact that for example simply lobbing a giant piece of rock at us from the Oort cloud or a diverting a nearer object would almost totally commit exterminatus but we would still have the opportunity for seeing it coming, which could give us a chance at stopping it or diverting its trajectory as well as generally lead to detecting it as a weapon in some circumstances if they tried it twice. A bioweapon is a stealth weapon. It would probably be a lot easier to just spray some spores and not have anyone think much of it than others which could also actively damage the planet, although I guess if you wanted to colonize their world for God knows what reason glassing it with something bigger than Chicxulub would do a pretty good job sterilizing the surface but so much microbial life would survive it's still risky.

That's not what survivorship bias means. It is a phenomenon in statistics in which a sample seizes to be representative of a population because individuals below a certain threshold are left out of the sample

Example: among your acquaintances, only Mensa members dare talk to you about their iq: it appears as if your acquaintances have an average iq score of 130+ even though it's probably closer to 100

>Your example boils down to "rewarding" yourself with something destructive in order to promote a habit loop for productive behavior (work). Pornography is not at all essential to that process.

You missunderstood me there. My post was not meant to justify porn consumption, but to point out a problem: It's much harder to get rid of a behaviour that your mind has reasons to protect because it has proven useful.

No. 56230
Yes, it is harder to get rid of behavior that you subconsciously associate with productivity. Although honestly, that whole description sounds like a bit of a cope to me. Either way though, you won't reach the goal (quitting) through objective reasoning and intellectual arguments. The key lies in forming strong convictions and affirming them. Like a prayer if you will.

Yes, not jacking off will not turn you into some sort of hypermasculine demigod. Just like taking one step won't let you run a marathon. Ceasing behavior that is addictive and completely warps your view of others as well as yourself is an excellent first step. Nofap movement may be cringe, but there clearly is a huge crowd of pornography addicts that urgently need its help in their lives. Think of it like AA or whatever. It just werks.

I created a video game.

6APM An experimental real-time strategy game: you are limited to exactly 6 Actions Per Minute (APM).

Did you ever have the feeling that RTS games like Command & Conquer, Starcraft or Company of Heroes are somehow stressful? There are always useful orders to give, but trying to perform 200 APM just isn't relaxing anymore.

We'll, I had this feeling, that's why I developed this game. It's a quite normal RTS game with units shooting at each other, control points, bases to spawn units. However, you are only allowed to give a move order (to an existing or new spawned unit) every 10 seconds, resulting in exactly 6 APM. Not the quickness of the commander is decisive, but good decisions – the game gives you enough time to analyse the situation and plan your next move.

Download Game:

The idea of limiting APM in RTS is really great.
Hope you'll make your game multi-platform, then I'll try it.

How does one go about producing their own indiegames? Which game engines and programs do you guys use or which ones could be used besides like Unity and Unreal?
No. 56089
For shooters you could try GZDoom. It started as a Doom sourceport, but at this point it's basically an indie game engine.
There have been a few commercial releases based on it, such as Hedon, Brutal Fate (upcoming), Selaco and for example the total conversion TOTAL CHAOS (though that one is free) that show what can be done even with that 2.5D stuff.
The good thing is you don't necessarily need 3D skills depending on what you're doing.
The bad thing is if you don't, you need 2D spriting skills.
Also, GZDoom has a really shitty netcode, so if you plan on doing anything multiplayer focused, you will have a bad time. It's really time for Zandronum to upgrade.

Hello, frens! It's time for another issue of the fable Kohlzine. This one, like we all expected, has a very distinct apocalyptic and viral flavour.
We have uncovered another sura from the depths of a Mossad secret base on Kiev, Bernds wonder how would affect this epidemic to various strata of out society, typical shitposts and confessions and a review of a (let's hope not) prophetic game in these end-times times.

For any doubts or if you want to see the previous issues go to https://kohlzine.neocities.org/
You can also fine information on the last page of this edition.
We hope you have fun with it.

You may enjoy it, Ernsts. Maybe even contribute one day? We aim at having contributors from all over the KC diaspora.

>For example, I've never seen Krautchan use scripts that start cryptomining without my consent
What is this about exactly?
No. 56159 Kontra
The closest thing I can think about is kohlcash. Tor and proxy users need to give proof of work in ordert to post, pretty much like mining bitcoin.
No. 56164 Kontra
I thought about that, however, calling Kohlcash "cryptomining without consent" wouldn't even be a stupid reductionism, but plain old disinformation.
Cryptocurrency is one practical application of proof-of-work (hashcash, which was originally devised to stop mail spam), but not all proof-of-work is crypto mining. The source code for Kohlcash is open, it's a simple brute force that does not provide anything at all for the server owner. And it never just "starts mining", you need to inform your consent not once, not twice, but on three different occasions: completing a text captcha, then clicking a link which takes you to the Kohlcash page, and finally clicking a button on that page which starts the PoW.
In that sense, it's no different from Komturcode, except you take matters into you own hands instead of waiting on IRC for several minutes to a few hours.
I don't think Ernst could deliberately spread disinfo, and he is not a Tor user as there is no whitelist process for Tor on this site, so I assume he must be referring to something else.

That reminds me if I ever get my government UI gibes pushed through I really want to buy something actually useful in any eventuality for a change and get a tent. I have a whole wishlist for shit I've wanted to get for ages now that between all the different potential sources of bailout money that I'm not counting until it's in my pocket, the greater bulk of it is all plausibly within my reach. One of those things is a tent and some camping supplies and equipment. It's not like I can possibly regret that kind of a purchase at least, well so long as it's not cheap and made in China anyway. That way if SHTF at least I can sleep with a roof over my head and not just a bushwould recommend when it's not raining tbh Stalin is wrong man is not truly free until he is bereft of any roommate, boss, landlord, cop, parent, or government agent to bitch at him and tell him what to do and nowhere can that be immortally found than living in a bush

It seems one can no longer take the train from Odessa to Tiraspol. In theory, Transnistria allows for visits, but this concerns me. I can't find any recent traveller accounts, and it's entirely possible their accounts are no longer representative after COVID.
I worry this 'nation' will disappear before I get a chance of going there.

>With a corporate logo that is shaped like the five-pointed star of a US law enforcement badge, the Sheriff Company dominates nearly everything in this Russian-backed enclave. Sheriff runs almost all the supermarkets, importing much of the food that makes its way in from Moldova proper and abroad. It is the main if not the only player in the automotive industry, selling cars, spare parts, oils and lubricants, say experts on the region. The petrol stations in this Kremlin-dominated statelet are run by Sheriff, as is the local football club, which has become hugely popular. It also produces beer and wine, and manufactures textiles, and is building hotels.

>But there’s more. Sheriff, a shadowy firm managed by two former Soviet-era security officials, runs the local telecommunications network. It controls almost all of the broadcast media. And over the past three or four years, the company has dominated the presidency and the parliament through a political party which began taking over in 2016.

>“There’s virtually nothing that they do not have a role in,” says Stephen Wolff, an expert on Transnistria at the University of Birmingham. Employing at least 12,000 people, experts say the company largely runs Transnistria. In some ways, say the smattering of Balkan and east Europe specialists who keep an eye on Transnistria, Sheriff has replaced the Communist Party that ruled Moldova until the collapse of the Soviet Union. Sheriff builds clinics and hospitals, and rewards promising pupils with prizes at its retail outlets. It has managed to secure an agreement by which it pays little or no taxes.
