Lets reveal coding secrets
I posted a previous version here before, just wanting to one-up the guy doing circle approximations before. This time, i have added a new circle approximator.
Up next should be some sort of triangle approximator. Ideas for how to make it work are welcome.

what the shit is going on with the openssl audit? we were told "one month ago" nearly A YEAR AGO
@kennwhite AFAICT has been completely radio silent on it.
My guess is they dug up a bunch of intentionally planted "bugs" that the NSA/CIA/whoever had installed and that they've been witholding the report until they can replace with fresh bugs
I thought this was supposed to be a a tech board?
What do you think of Telegram? Is Durov working for the CIA or FSB?
If you are using try catch at least once, you might as well book a flight to india and fit right in.

What the fuck? Does anyone have an explanation?
In my professional life I work mainly with centos / redhat boxes. At home I have a windows 7 PC and a laptop with Ubuntu on it. As I got more mature I found that I prefer using Linux compared to windows. I want to move to a new Linux distro on my main PC and purge windows but I play games and most of them only work for windows - that is the sole thing that is blocking my switch. I know about wine but heard that it can be flakey.
Have you ran into this and if so what did you do? Is it time to stop playing vidya?
ITT we judge or appreciate other anons for using open or closed source software.
We do this by using a screenshot programm like scrot and the tool vrms.
What is it ?
>vrms (Virtual Richard M. Stallman) is a program that analyzes the set of currently-installed packages on a Debian-based system, and reports all of the packages from the non-free tree which are currently installed.
Debian/Ubuntu Version:sudo apt-get install vrms

will there ever be AI that is nearly indistinguishable from a real person?
I think not.
If AI are developed to the point of becoming self-modifying and capable of learning, their motives and goals are different than organic life. There will be always a distinction.
There is that Replika AI that copies your writing style and behavior and starts mimicking it.
Sure a super intelligence AI that can outmatch any human will be weird because it's going to be basically omniscient, but an AI that could replicate your personality would be way easier to achieve since it just needs learn something really specific.
