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.

Every single chan with a tech or g board is filled to the brim with political threads about policies, corporate/government spying and muh freedoms.

Whatever a tech board can come up with will be small-scale shit which they might use on the side to feel cool and above the system, but will never replace the current infrastructure. It's happened before. There is an interesting project called safenet, but whenever that actually becomes open the public is a mystery.

Also, tor isn't a "separate internet". Unless you make a new network of individual computers, you aren't making a "new internet". If you do that though, it wont be useful to people outside of that mesh network.

How does /tc/ sort their files? Do you throw them all in New folder (62) or do you take the time to sort them nicely?

I keep maybe 1/4th of my animu photos sorted by series. In some cases I have special sub folders for characters such as the waifu, saber, ect. the rest get tossed into a big general folder that I keep telling myself I'll sort out someday knowing full well I never will.

My audio is a bit better sorted. It's not ideal but I have a music folder, and from there groups/artists. few exceptions being folders for game music, soundtrack stuff, ect I do have a small general folder of sorts for music but that's just from when my only hdd died and I had to rip my music off my ipod, and because of how poorly it was stored the files were given randomized names and placed in random folders.

Videos is pretty straightforward. anime/tv/movies/other. sub folders with series names.

Games is also pretty simple. It's mostly just sorted by system.

For pictures, I keep everything in one big "Pictures" folder. I rely on remembering when I save things and hopefully naming things properly to find them. For anime, movies, music, etc. I make folders and keep filling them until about 50 or so are in there and make a new one. I also rely on remembering when I saved things to remember where they are in this case. When I sort pictures by anime series or origin I feel like it makes it a lot harder to find. I did this once a few years back to my whole pictures folder, and later dumped everything back into one folder. Took a really long time too, not worth it, long as I can sort by modify date I'm good.

I mostly sort my files in videos, pictures, documents, music, games.
In pictures and videos, files are categorized as board and non-board names ex. g, b, a/[serie]/[char], Art. there are videos in pictures tough, mostly webms.

Overall it's still a big mess, some loose files, duplicate files, wrongly saved. Then there's also the issue of files that fit within multiple categories, files on other drives yet to be merged and not having the same organization. Windows doesn't allow paths with more than 256 characters so long filenames causes a problem, a temporary solution is zipping the file so it can be moved or using Teracopy.

Hydrus as >>1810 mentioned before is a solution to file organization, but it requires all the files in one big folder, I don't want to lose my folder structure so Hydrus won't be used. some images can get tags automatically by looking at MD5 of your picture and those on x-booru.

One program that's been helpful is Everything, say you save a file, put some tags in filename it's easy to find back and it's MUCH faster default windows search.

Do you guys find saving annoying too? Depending on the content I might have to jump to many different locations for each file. now THIS is a hassle. Maybe one big folder is not so bad after all?
>> No. 1854 [Edit]

I have all my programs set to automatically download into one one big ingress folder and then organize from there. It's ugly but it's easier so long as you keep on top of shoving things into their appropriate places every few days. One trick is using temporary folders to group items as they come in. Say you're saving Touhou fanart. Clear out the base of ingress so only folders remain and let them all save there. Then when you finish drag them into a new folder so they don't mix with anything else. Even if you want to sort further (by character) it's still much easier than having to sit there and separate hundreds of pictures based on series which I find is usually the slowest part. And you can make other groups too like funny, infograph, etc depending on your needs and what you're saving.

Unless you constrain that to unusual and useful/functional, you'll find a lot of stuff made from shitty ideas that failed for clear and deservedly obvious reasons.

As for one that I thought was weird, but turned out to be immensely useful: the horizontal scroll wheel on a madcatz RAT mouse.
I just wish the quality of the mouse matched the price tag, because it was very hard to learn to live without it when I switched to a more normal mouse that would last longer than year before it starts to fail.

If you voluntarily surrender information to someone you don't have any reason to trust and then it turns out that they were lying about why they wanted the information and they plan on abusing it, who is to blame? The people who get into positions of power are awful people, you were taught that from a young age. "Power corrupts" remember that?
If you go out for a walk into the swamp in the evening on a warm day in May and the mosquitos go wild on you because you didn't put on any repellent whos at fault? You can't blame a bloodsucker for trying to suck your blood and you can't blame corrupt authoritarian animals for abusing power, they're both things you're expected to be away of and protect yourself from.
They can't sell your data if they don't have it. As long as they never get mine they'll never be able to genetically modify a superior being because I'm the prototype of perfection.

This thread is computer/technology related, so /mt/ is probably the best place to post it.

Anyway, to the point. I've been hearing many rumours that the soon to come Windows 8 will have forced "Live integration", which means (you guessed it), forcing you to register on Live before being able to use the OS. From that moment on, I realized that Microsoft will either fail completely as a Software manufacturer or the oblivious masses will bend over. To my (almost expected) disappointment, it is the latter. The masses will accept this as they have done so far. I'm talking about the social networking shoved in people's faces everywhere. You can't go to a large website without seeing facebook and twitter links everywhere. Hell, even online gaming has turned into one big social network (see Steam, Xbox Live, etc.)

The question I pose is, what's next? Requirement to have your real name visible everywhere you post? Or maybe forced cloud computing? Web 2.0? Seems likely.

They're already putting tracking devices in smart phones:

http://www.techflash.com/seattle/2011/04/is-your-iphone-spying-on-you.html

And don't get me started on the backdoors they've put in proprietary software.

Well, this concludes my pointless post. Any thoughts?

I can totally agree with you. It sure has gotten worse since 2014 in the name of kids and terrorists.

Actually, I am trying to figure out the fallout which will be raining upon us when A13 is implemented. If I recall correctly the new laws only affect platforms older than 3 years and with more than 3000 monthly users. While Im sure Tohno-Chan fullfills the age requirement, I am not so sure about the users part.

I think this user count clause will really save my ass. Most websites I use have also presumably under 3000 active users. Regarding Youtube and Co... I hope they will figure something out.

I think most of the internet isn't going to bother.
It's going to be cheaper for them to just cut off the EU peasants from the greater net than to try and conform to EU's fantasy demands.
Only the multinational goliaths will prevail, though I doubt they will be able to make significantly more money off of us anyway.

>Regarding Youtube and Co
As >>1828 mentioned, the big companies are going to be pretty unaffected. They can afford to (and already have) developed ML based content ID systems to automatically take down content. Google, Facebook, and co. will probably set it to be even stricter in the EU and call it a day.

Meanwhile the law will only hurt small startups and indie businesses because they can't afford to/don't have the manpower to do the above. And it'll also hurt end-consumers as an end result in two ways: 1) there'll be less competition from these small businesses and eventually people won't bother trying to create services catering to EU citizens so they'll be stuck with big goliaths that will only become entrenched and incumbent. 2) Smaller niche content/sites may also become unavailable to EU citizens, as even those possibly under the exception clause mentioned may not want to risk violations or bother so they'll just block EU IPs.

I've been wanting to try programming or game making for a while now but I don't know where to start. I have a vague idea of what I want to make. Ideally, something like a point and click adventure game but rather than having an inventory it'd be more about how your actions affect the things around them. If you've ever played ghost trick I wanted to make something like that. I really enjoyed that games puzzles and I liked how a scene was being played out as you solved them.

But trying to emulate that kind of gameplay is too ambitious for a first try so maybe something closer to "I wish I were the moon" http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/461959

Making video games is difficult and learning any language is extremely tedious. The software I write nearly every day is what most people, myself included, would consider boring and the tedium is absolutely inescapable. It will more than likely take great resolve to do anything you have in mind today.

If you decide to program it yourself you should learn java and get comfortable with that. Java is a fine language for beginners and teaches useful OO concepts.

Assembly and Python are also excellent starting points for beginners, Python will teach almost everything a beginner should learn. It's easy to use and would make a great stepping stone if you want to later use a language like C/C++/Java. Python is great in and of its self and you can stick with it. Assembly takes a bit of effort to learn, but it's still by far the best way to really get to grips with programming, but I still recommend it less than Python and Java.

If you decide you aren't tough enough and programming is not for you, there are things like Wintermute Engine and Visionaire Studio that will let you make your game with little or no programming knowledge. They're really easy to use, so I hear, and they would suit someone with not so much time to invest in a hobby.

>Ideally, something like a point and click adventure game but rather than having an inventory it'd be more about how your actions affect the things around them.

That is a point and click adventure game.

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.

Also, since I originally stumbled upon this dilemma when trying to calculate the total number of possible pairings amongst a species consisting of two sexes, rather than balls and bins, do you think you could apply it to the scenario of a race with three sexes (but only a trio with one of each of the three sexes can produce a child)?

Or, if sticking to balls and bins, could you draw pictures too?
>> No. 1779 [Edit]
>>1777
Not sure if I understand what you're getting at, but combinatorics is a field of math and I'd certainly put this in that category.

>My moment of genius was to realise that you could just take away all the possible male-male pairings
Yeah exactly! And your example actually *is* inclusion-exclusion applied to the case of n = 2 I think (expand out the summation and you should find that the terms match up)!

>do you think you could apply it to the scenario of a race with three sexes (but only a trio with one of each of the three sexes can produce a child)?
I'm not sure I understand what you meant. I'll give a concrete example for x = 3 bins and n = 4 balls though (so the number of ways to assign them is 3^4 = 81) (in your example I think this might correspond to each bin being one of the three genders). Also I'll stick to balls and bins if that's ok with you since that's a bit easier to visualize for me.

So we know that the number of ways to put 4 balls into 3 bins (with each ball going in only one bin and every ball going in some bin) is 3^4 (3 choices for the first ball * 3 choices for second ball * 3 choices for third ball * 3 choices for fourth ball). Now let's count this a different way. Form all possible ball/bin pairings:

ball 1 - bin 1
ball 1 - bin 2
ball 1 - bin 3
ball 2 - bin 1

I'm still in the process of trying to understand this post but for the time being, I have another question:
Is there any significance in applying calculus here? I've got x^3 expressed in terms of combinations and I've got x^2 in terms of combinations so it's not too crazy to triple the x^2 one (i.e. 3x^2) and announce one sum of combinations to be the derivative of the other. Does that yield anything interesting?

Also, with this ball and bin analogy, am I understanding you correctly when it's possible for one bin to have two balls?
>> No. 1782 [Edit]
>>1780
>it's possible for one bin to have two balls?
Yes two different balls can go in the same bin, but a single ball can go in only one bin and every ball must go in some bin

> derivative of the other. Does that yield anything interesting?
No I don't think so since nCr doesn't make sense for non-integers. It's also pretty contrived so I don't think there's any direct interpretation. You can make 1 = 1 turn into some complicated looking thing by stringing together identities but it doesn't necessarily mean it'll have a direct interpretation.

Why do gpu makers put all their effort into making the top of the card look fancy when you're likely only going to see the side and the bottom? Why do the fans blow downwards anyway? wouldn't it make more sense to vent the heat upwards?

With these questions in mind it seems people are taking to side mounting their gpu, problem is that pushes the card right up to the case window and blocks the air flow. Anyways, what do you guys think about this? would you mount yours sideways, do you not care if it sags at the end when mounted traditionally, what's your take?
>> No. 1763 [Edit]
I am pretty sure the fans on most graphics cards blow air into the heatsink, leaving it to exhaust out the side or back of the card, then sucked up by the rear fan. Not much you can do about that but I think it works fine most times unless the computer not designed for a large card like that. There are also blower style graphics cards which use a radial fan to blow air through a duct and out the back of the slot covers, which works better in tight computers, it's pretty common. I think a simple reason for making the card look nicer on the fan side would be that those images are what is mostly shown in product pages where people purchase the cards, so people will buy the better looking one regardless of if they'll see it in their case or not. Most computers don't have a clear panel anyway so the majority of the time the side isn't even seen.

Air movement is more of a non-issue. The larger issues are generally going to be the heatsinks getting gunked up with dust. Make sure to blow out the dust every now and again.

With modern cases, there is plenty of room to prevent air from stagnating and heat up.

The real problem, as can be clearly shown in your image, is the PCIe ports being completely blocked. God forbid you want to use one of the new and fancy SSD drives, or a good quality sound card, or a network card.

Also, with multiple card set ups, you now have to remove everything to get to the card vice being able to lift out the problem card by itself. The cases and motherboards were designed with the vertical mount orientation in mind, both for air flow and ease of use. Changing that on a whim is a stupid idea, unless you *really* need to show off the LEDs on the fans of your graphics card which would be otherwise obstructed by another PCIe card.
