I don't know if this is the right board but what are your thoughts on gene editing? Is it the future of humanity or will it just be a thing that is forgotten in a few years? Would you have you genes edited or no? Would you have designer baby or would you be ethically opposed to editing the genetics of your child?


I believe gene editing is a good thing because we can change humans genes to become better, stronger, faster, smarter, and live longer. Not just for military super soldiers ,better development for work purpose that requires some skills to work efficiency.


It will become a common thing, but I don't believe it will be as significant as the internet.


File: 1544385013442.jpg (298.96 KB, 780x456, Space-image.jpg)

this is a crucial element to our future!
we must kick human gene editing research into high gear - or fall prey to the AI!
(elon agrees)

if we are to meet the future, we absolutely categorically must edit our genes. let's level up, let's close in on perfection.
there is no sacrifice too great for progress, especially considering the sciences.
otherwise we'll end up in a "clogged society" of 12-lane highways, in horrendous slowly worsening stagnation.
we must engineer Homo Novus, the pioneer of our destiny, for our heritage to conquer this part of the galaxy.
it is obvious to everybody that our current bodies are frail, dirty, wasteful, and generally worthless. and we individuals truly are the proponents of military might, economic strength, and generational upgrading, for even the greatest tower is built out of such small bricks. therefore if we update the individual to our needs, the whole fortress of humanity shall emerge!

also, let's be honest…
it's nigh time that Futanari be engineered…


It's just yet another control problem. If we do figure out how to get precisely what we want to create by editing genes, we'll be creating things we fail to understand, control or contain in no time.
If we do not understand, it's just another high-hype form of tinkering that yields next to nothing. AI Winter? Gene Winter!

>to become better, stronger, faster, smarter, and live longer.

Perhaps, perhaps not. I would also leave a strong reminder not to fall for the progressive meme - just because something can be improved doesn't mean it can be improved indefinitely. Maybe all we can get is 20 more years of longevity, +10 average IQ and less diseases.

Sounds about right.

Are there any cases in the world where quadrotors are actually used? Shouldnt Amazon at least have started experimenting with drone deliveries in some city or observed occurances of criminal organizations making extensive use of drones for covert transport?


They are used a lot for filming and taking photos.


As for the covert transport, I remember a number of articles where prisons complain about all the illegal drone deliveries that happen these days, so I guess that's a thing.

In india they use drones to plant trees. Also Agriculture in general is a big customer, they can measure water levels on the field for example and see exactly where they need to water more instead of spraying the whole field like they had to so before.

Quad racing is great.

They are used for Art too (see the last olympic opening for example).

Biologists and Archaeologists use them for observation of all kinds of things all the time.

I see / read about drones all the time not sure how you have missed all this. There is so much stuff happening.

The problem with serious delivery drones is that these things need to carry some weight so they are big and loud while they need to fly freely above cities. Authorities aren't too happy about this and a lot of regulation happens, so it's not happening very quickly. Anywhere else they are a great tool and used in many ways.


Prisons often use drones to smuggle drugs these days ctfu


Train yards in the US have started using them for observation of their operations and presumably, security. Just an extension of the towers they already have.

I wonder if they are used in sports broadcasts, for following long distance races or just getting a more perfect camera angle that can't otherwise be reached.

I want to see a webseries like Robot Wars only in the air.

File Synchronization General

We all need to sync files from server to server, server to client , client to client, what tools do you guys use? How do you find it?


Git Annex
OpenSSH/SFTP with RSync
Resilio (Closed Source)
Seafile community edition

I only included Resilio because I know some lains use it and trust it, personally I am using SyncThing with global Discovery disabled and LAN only, my systems can talk to each-other over WiFi or VPN, but not over the internet.

Forgot to mention, Nextcloud discussion starts at 50:20.


man that sucks, did anyone try to fork it after this?



Thanks for linking this. I was on the fence on what I've been hearing about owncloud/nextcloud.

I feel the Nextcloud guy (Jos) did extremely well defending against 3 unprofessional interviewers that degraded it into a rant session. Afterwards they go back and recant things they said during the interview saying maybe they were too harsh because he was late, etc. Then from a high horse they preach about "responsibility" in software development as if they are saints and have flawless work.

So, looking at this on the whole I've a ton more respect for Jos and Nextcloud willing to even speak to randoms as this is literally, the type of soykaf show you will see. This was not a candid interview, 3 rabid dogs on 1 man and he handled them well.

Jos and Nextcloud honestly didn't have to give a soykaf about their users but it turns out they do have a sense of responsibility even if the software they made is under a different flag (Owncloud). I'd rather see a bunch of angry hypocrites ranting about soykaf they got for free than another Wannacry-tier debacle. (Owncloud 5 was free and a very old version at that, windows XP of nextcloud)

So, they did what was necessary to get these systems patched. They left it with the shadow server people and they took action accordingly which was warn the ISP. Major sec vulnerabilities aren't something to publish on a blog post and tracking down users without contact info is pretty impossible, let alone getting them to apply an update.

I don't know all the little details and but based on this interview alone, I'd still use Nextcloud over google drive/dropbox/etc.



I don't think that most people have a problem with the Nextcloud devs taking security seriously. The problem is that the Nextcloud devs didn't seem to give a single thought to the trouble that they could cause to home users by drawing attention to the existence of Nextcloud servers on residential no-servers-allowed ISPs. Especially when any given ISP might be the only ISP available in any particular area.


Did anyone notice the recent development on syncthing, especially the receive only folders for backup replication means or the Android app syncthing-fork on f-droid which allows selective per folder sync conditions and is mostly battery friendly? I'm happy using those two since about two months.

OK so here is the problem with my computer you may find weird

I have been playing csgo on gtx 1050ti for a while with fast sync on but I play better with vsync off although turning vsync off makes screen tearing, this is not the case in my situation because im getting about 100-200fps on 75hz monitor without screen tearing and it feels like fast sync although fast sync is off. Its weird thing to say but i actually miss the screen tearing. tell me how to fix this problem just need get screen tearing. its not just csgo it also other source games like gmod

PC specs: intel g4560, gtx 1050ti with 4gb, and 75hz monitor (freesync but nvidia wont let me)


Can't you put a rate limit on the frames? Or does that not help?



With high FPS your probably not going to see the screen tearing for a start at very slightly.

Put the refresh rate at 60 hz and try to disable vsync see if there an improvement then do it back at 75 hz if there is no change it probably due to an option somehere in the Nvidia panel.


It would be better to ask /wsr/ or a tech support IRC group, since this site has low traffic and it’s a specialized question.


I try capping fps below refresh rate but still no screen tearing
I tried uninstalling drivers it works but then no screen tearing after closing it off after a day

I'd also recommend looking at used parts if you have a lower budget. Old intel cpus for the sandy and ivy bridge range go for quite cheap now and DDR3 prices are also dam good.

If you look on sites like ebay or Aliepress you can find Xeons for really good prices. Take the 2011 platform, the 1650 goes for around 100 USD with similar performance to the R5 1600 or the 2660 v2 for 110, which offers 10 cores though has a low clock. Theses coupled with some cheap ECC DDR3 can provide a relatively cheap entry level productivity or gaming system depending on what you get. Be warned on what motherboard you get though, as the cheaper ones on Ali/ebay can be rife with issues.

"Embrace, extend, and extinguish", also known as "Embrace, extend, and exterminate", is a phrase that the U.S. Department of Justice found was used internally by Microsoft to describe its strategy for entering product categories involving widely used standards, extending those standards with proprietary capabilities, and then using those differences to strongly disadvantage its competitors.

Today I'm apply this to what's currently going on with the GNU/Linux project. With the push by Microsoft, putting their own software on the platform and having Microsoft Azure run on it, I'll advise everyone to remember who we;re dealing with here. Microsoft has no intention to give the power and freedom to their users. As it might sound fantastic that Microsoft is letting their projects be open source (to a select group), we cannot let our guard down. Now Red Hat, one of the most popular companies in Linux, influencing the rest of the distributions, creating standards by being closest to the enterprise (ex: systemd), whether you like them or not.

Red Hat has just been bought by IBM and I'm not going to repeat myself, so I'll make it quick. This may, or may not go well for us. IBM is first and foremost a company that probably don't have the same intentions and visions as their founders, or as Current CEO of Red Hat, Jim Whitehurst.

RedHat is responsible for systemd and pulseaudio, two of the worst kept software projects that people won't stop supporting because it has the backing of an enterprise. RedHat has always been a problem for the community.


I feel like I am more afraid, what ibm will do within freesoftware, than what they will take away. honestly if they made systemd closed, that would likely kill it, which would be a good thing.

the damage they may do, will almost assuredly be more insidious, and of the flavour redhat has pursued.


RedHat? more like TinFoilHat amirite?!?




How would IBM treat systemd? Would it improve with the backing of a great industry? Would it be left to the sorry developers?

hallo alice, i recently booted up a crouton version of ubuntu xenial and its a fucking pain in the ass, i tried getting the firefox and wine ppa's but to no avail, because i cant find any way to open software sources anywhere. and netsurf is one of the soykaftiest browsers ive laid eyes upon. so im stuck in a dillemma, i cant open any exe files or using any script and image heavy websites, an example being discord, as it becomes a scrambled mess of spliced images and urls
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


If I can recall Ubuntu comes with firefox, I don't know why you are looking for the ppa's of firefox when you can simply do "apt install firefox"


If that is a screenshot you made, first off you're likely not using ubuntu, but some derivative like lubuntu or w/e.


Isn't that some outdated attempt to boot and run a linux distro on a chromebook without removing or hurting chromeOS? That seems like a pretty bad place to judge ubuntu. You know what? If you can install windows 10 on an android phone and it works better, notify me and i'll move back to windows permanently.

>i cant find any way to open software sources anywhere

You can usually edit sources from your package manager ("software", "discover", "synaptic" or whichever you have), or just using the terminal
`sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list` to open it and add/change sources. Make sure you understand what you're doing before you do it, Google can further help you.
Also keep in mind that the primary source of software for linux distros isn't ppas, flatpaks or snaps. Every distro has its own software repositories, and you can install things from there.

>i cant open any exe files

LMAO what were you expecting? Windows can't run anything from linux but you expect it to work the other way around? The fact that wine exists and can run games like league and software like ms office simply means that linux is miles ahead in this aspect. What does windows have? A fucking bash emulator.

If you don't have a dedicated machine for doing linux and must use it on your school chromebook, just consider finding some student job until you earn enough to buy some used laptop. If you do have a machine, dual boot it with whatever else. And ffs use stock ubuntu before you try alternatives so you at least know what 90% of the posts you read on google are about.


>What does windows have?
To be fair, the windows subsystem for linux is comparable to wine.
You can run most user space programs in it, including an x server.

the comparison isn't really fair cause wine is reverse engineered and windows can just look at the source for the linux kernel.


oh, I never actually tried it, just read what they said and it mentioned awk bash and so.

Discussing your current set up, prospects for buying equipment and general questions relating to listening to music. Here's the parts in a nutshells.

Digital Media
Consider your listening device, from your phone or a computer it's important to know the capabilities of your hardware. It's generally recommend for your computer to be your main listening device as for the range of obtaining better sound is greater.

Source Files
For those with special ears, the format of your music might make light and day with your setup. The discussion of audio files could take forever, but without a doubt store your music in a Lossless (e.g FLAC) or uncompressed (e.g WAV) format and convert down to a lossy format (e.g MP3) when necessary such as playing music specific devices where the larger lossless and uncompressed format will be impractical.

Amplifiers and DACs
Amplifiers and DACs are a necessary part of your digital audio system. The DAC converts your music from 0s and 1s into analog signals, and then the signal is amplified by your amp. People often ask if they need an external amp or DAC, and the answer will depend on the following:

Are your current headphones underpowered?
Does your source produce audible noise/hissing/EMI?

There are a few types of amp and DACs, and they serve different purposes. An amp or a DAC can be portable, meaning you can simply put them in your pocket, and then enjoy the music on the go. Desktop amps or DACs can go from the tiny USB powered FiiO E10 and all the way up to the size of a Beta22. Amps and DACs are either be two stand alone units, or a single device.

With amplifiers, most people want a neutral and transparent sound signature, meaning the amp doesn't change the sound in anyway. However some people prefer amps that change the sound, because of this, many vacuum tube based amps are made with the intention of reproducing a colored sound.

Speakers & Headphones
The most important part of your set up, don't skimp out and buy cheap speakers or headphones.It's recommended to actually find some of this used, but always listen before you buy. When buying speakers and or headphones consider where you wPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

the entire GNU C toolchain. it just strikes me as an amazing achievement to maintain a collection of projects of that complexity out in the open for so long.

also Emacs.


Yes, I also used to be a member of the FSFE and visited talks about free software.

my favorites are my daily drivers: thunderbird & firefox, vim, gcc etc etc.


what do you compile ?
