How do I get this?!?! I wanna have Miku sitting on my desktop like that!
My OS is linux ubuntu, by the way. I've been searching all over the internet but I can't find a way to install this!

Hm you might try compiling from source and see if that fixes it. Alternatively if there is indeed a bug you could try compiling with debug symbols if needed and stepping through with gdb (or just looking at the symbol dump) and seeing what's causing it to segfault.

Another option might just be to find where the preferences are stored (probably some dotfile in the home directory or near the binary path) and modifying that directly.

Actually I didn't check before posting because I thought the software died years ago but it got updated in June, my repos is lagging two versions behind. I compiled the new one the menu works fine now. According to dmesg it was a GTK problem.

Thanks anyways.

I had some linker errors trying to get this to build on Linux. Seems like some GCC defaults changed since this was working to disallow for some undefined behavior, which MaCoPiX needs to be patched for. In the meantime, it can be worked around using `make LDFLAGS=-Wl,--allow-multiple-definition` for the make step.

So, my phone has been giving these warnings of no more room in the phone storage, so I installed an app storage analyser and found this out. There's a fucking 9GB folder that's inaccessible, I can't delete anything from this, and every day my free storage shrinks in size, I need to figure a solution out really quick. What to do?
>> No. 2057 [Edit]
>>2056
Can you try using https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.diskusage instead? A proper storage analyzer should enumerate the folders which are taking up the most space.

I have installed it and this is what came up. So I noticed first the System Data is 4gb isn't that too much? Anyway, it seems some big part of the memory is being used by some software that already came up with the phone and I never bothered to remove. I should add at least 2gb all, but the thing is these apps do not show when you search in Settings-Storage, so I looked for them in another location, and found other apps, Word, LinkedIn, that are also occupying a great part of the disk, but these don't show up on the DiskUsage app except for a very small file inside the Android folder. However if I go to settings-apps my phone will say they have hundreds of megabytes.
Anyway, I will delete these useless software, even though it says it could damage the phone, it is just a bootless message it seems.
I'm still suspicious that there might be something there in the System Data folder messing up with the phone storage, so I will register today's size and keep an eye for the future.
>> No. 2059 [Edit]
>>2058
For removing apps, if you're comfortable with the command line you can use adb to remove apps that the settings panel will not let you remove. I don't recall the exact command but something like "adb pm list" should list all apps by packade id, and then "adb pm -k" should allow you to remove it.

I'm not sure what exactly "system data" is comprised of here (I presume it includes the folders which cannot be read without root). If you have

If you had root access this might be easier to diagnose.

Did you compile with -O2/-O3? I'm pretty sure that past some point compilers will use binary decision trees for the branching instead of sequential conditionals. But again there's not much point to this as you're better off using a proper hash function anyway.

If you have to endure Microsoft shoving their whole fist up where the sun don't shine because your new-ish hardware either doesn't support Windows 7 or you're tired of worrying about operating systems and decided to just bite the bullet, here are a few things you ought to consider:

In the beginning, there was no reliable way to stop Microsoft's spying unless you somehow got your hands on a clean ISO for the LTSB/LTSC edition of Windows 10. Now there is, through a third party open source firewall called Simplewall. By default it comes with a list of IP addresses to block that Windows normally sends telemetry, keystrokes and other data to. Simply enable them in the blocklist.
Link: https://github.com/henrypp/simplewall

Another project which aims to mitigate data collection as well as to debloat the system is a PowerShell script called Windows10Debloater which disables bloatware applications that have their own data collection, such as Cortana, the Microsoft Store and Edge. (Link: https://github.com/Sycnex/Windows10Debloater).

After running these I managed to get zero networking utilization when I don't run any internet-connected tasks myself, something which was near impossible when running Windows 10 without these things. Keep in mind though that you will probably have to re-run the PS1 script after every major update since those tend to re-enable some if not all of the built-in crapware.

You can also defer Windows updates by setting Windows Update Service from Manual to Disabled in services.msc. To ensure that the Windows Update Service doesn't start without your permission since it can actually do that (believe it or not) you can open up gpedit.msc, then go to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update > Configure Automatic Updates, and select Disable. This way, Windows will only update when you tell it to.

Yeah this is a lot of hoops to jump through but I think it's worth it to try to stop Windows 10 from just doing what it wants.

This is the most comprehensive guide I could find on manually removing things like cortana and other unwanted components without a script.

Greetings.

I recently noticed that one could express a polynomial in terms of combinatorials and so I am curious as to how far one could go with this.

My requests are:
1) An expression of n^4 purely in terms of combinatorials
2) A method for finding these combinatorial-expressions
3) Clarity regarding what the term is for this field of study my question would fit into (if there is one)

I notice Pascal's triangle appears consistently (albeit with the rightmost '1' cut off) so perhaps, keeping the positive-negative alteration in mind, the n^4 combinatorial-expression is actually quite predictable but I have yet to test this and to be honest, I'd rather find a method than apply what I predict could be the cheat-sheet.

This just looks like sequences and (finite) series, though.
>> No. 2045 [Edit]
OP, you did well in asking if there was such a subject beforehand. Lately I was asking myself if there was something on sequences that are like arithmetical progressions, but with a different ratio between every number. I research deep in every possible related topic and couldn't find anything, even describing the problem didn't help. I ended up finding some formulas of my own, in the end, and was even going to post them here and ask about, but eventually I found they actually exist and are called quadratic sequences. There isn't a lot about them, though. The existing formulas are very different from the ones I made, and it appears that there are (as I suspected) even higher orders of magnitude, like cubic etc. What do you guys think of this whole thing?
>> No. 2046 [Edit]
>>2045
I think you can just generalize everything by writing it as a recurrence relation. For a quadratic relation we know that we must have

d(n) = f(n+1) - f(n) = an + b, which implies that f(n+1) = f(n) + an + b.

Now for the particular case of quadratic sequences I think finding a general formula for the nth term is relatively straightforward because we know how to do sums of arithemtic sequences, so you can apply this to find d(1) + d(2) + ... + d(n) which immediately gives you a formula for what f(n+1) is. Same thing applies for "cubic sequences" as well and so on since we have nice closed form solutions for those.

Hard to implement cleanly, since you'd probably have to double the thickness of the display part. Maybe with the new fancy paper-thin/foldable displays it's possible, but it doesn't make sense ergonomically since it'll be off-center.

I've seen home made mods that have the screen fold out on top. Which places one of the screens at eye level, making for a more comfortable view.

That'd be neat! And the vertical real-estate would be very useful. Tangentially I don't know why almost all laptops are 16:9, even though 16:10 gives you that extra bit of valuable vertical space.

Boorus are more of a mass collection site with little to no quality control. I'm thinking of a place where people post the cream of the crop, not just dumping images for the sake of it but sharing things that hit all the right strokes for them. Maybe a scene in an anime which spoke to them, or a single piece of erotic art that they could get off to several times. Also, I'd like people to have discussion about those images, albeit with the stipulation that EVERY post would have to contain an image. I don't want something like 4/h/ where half the thread is people shitposting or arguing without posting anything.

From the classical point of view, it is natural to assume that everything that happens in our world must have a reason. This reason may be hidden, unknown, but it must be; it is this consideration that underlies attempts to create a more detailed theory of the phenomena of the microcosm. But from the point of view of conventional, orthodox quantum mechanics, the theory of hidden parameters is impossible, if only because it does not have its own subject "behind the scenes" of quantum phenomena simply, according to quantum mechanics, there is nothing.
Is quantum indeterminism the absolute truth? I quote from Paul Dirac's book the Directions in Physics: "I do not rule out the possibility that Einstein's point of view may be correct in the end, because the current stage of development of quantum mechanics cannot be considered as final. There are many unsolved problems in this theory. Modern quantum mechanics is the greatest achievement, but it is unlikely to exist forever. It seems to me very likely that some day in the future there will be an improved quantum mechanics, which will contain a return to causality and which will justify the point of view of Einstein. But such a return to causality can only be possible at the cost of abandoning some other fundamental idea that we now accept unconditionally. If we are going to revive causality, we will have to pay for it, and now we can only guess what idea should be sacrificed."
Is this question open today in the scientific community, or does everyone believe that if Bell inequality has not been solved, then hidden parameters do not exist?

Viewing the universe as a cellular automaton seems pretty neat, and there appears to at least be some people [1] working on this approach, reconciling the results with the seeming implausibility of the conspiracy that initial conditions and determinism always conspire to result in violations of Bell's inequality.

I don't have the depth to go through that paper though so I'm not sure how valid it is.

Is there a reason why adblocker apps for android always seem to use vpn connections? Why is this necessary? Are there any out there that don't use one(rooted phone or otherwise)?
>> No. 2012 [Edit]
>>1502
Because you cannot set the hosts file on an unrooted phone, so the only way to do it at a global level is by tunneling all traffic through a local vpn which can then be locally filtered. If you just want adblock in a browser you can get that via firefox plus extensions or similar chromium variants that support adblock.

If you're rooted you can use adaway which uses the hosts file method (last I checked). There is also the option of using a custom dns pointed either at a local pi-hole server or a publicly hosted pi-hole. It seems the option to use a custom dns was only added in android 9, so for older versions you'll have to root it and modify one of the initrc files to override the dhcp-acquired value.

It's not much of a war at this point when your only browser choices are essentially Firefox or rebranded Chromium. Even Microsoft threw in the towel with Trident.

And while the performance improvements in Firefox since the "quantum" update are supposedly nice, they manage to make the UI worse every update.
