Is there any reason not to use nvim over vim at this point? I'm still using the latter but am considering switching. I want to be considered ``tech savvy'' by my peers.

You should use nvi.

I recently switched from Vim to Emacs (evil-mode), and I've gotta say that it's really good. Nvim's got some cool stuff going for it, and I'd say that it comes down to which extension language you want to use. I've been enjoying elisp, but at the same time I haven't used Lua, so if you're already experienced in that then Nvim might be a better choice.
With Nvim, you wouldn't have the expectation that it will be installed on a given *nix machine, although it's not a very big deal since Nvim is backwards compatible with Vim.

ITT: You're favorite 2hu and when you realized you were gay

1 Name: Anonymous 2018-10-01 20:08
My favorite 2hu is Komeji and I realized I was gay when I was 19 when I told my friend about finding old condoms discarded by others and drinking the cum drinking out of them was gay. I thought about it and realized that was true. Anyway, Komeji is the best.

In general, I think security/cryptography/etc is so incredibly complicated and difficult

Nah. Crypto is actually pretty easy at the high level to understand. And the low level details are also quite simple, mixing, XORing, shifting, multiplying or exponentiation modulo a bit-length, solving the equation of an elliptic curve, etc. Once you have a basic understanding you can quickly string together cryptographic primitives and design new ciphers fairly simply.

What's complicated is testing to ensure that the resultant algorithm doesn't create bit dependencies which can be exploited by cryptanalysis. However, we have automated tests for that now. Side channel attacks are also a PITA to avoid, but there are guidelines which help nail them down. Really, what's crazy is running your system on a shared hosting platform then calling it secure when you've already lost any guarantee that your data isn't visible to 3rd parties. If you're worried about "side channel attacks" on code you've entrusted "The Cloud" to run for you... that's crazy. If you're running on your own hardware, and there's malicious stuff crawling around in there, you've also got bigger problems than passive side channel attacks.

What's insane is using an algorithm (Like SHA3) that NSA tweaked parameters to. It's silly to assume they didn't indroduce bit dependencies to make a back door... Like the backdoored Dual Elliptic Curve Pseudo Random Number Generator NSA submitted, which is now also a NIST recommended algorithm.

What's insane is NOT learning enough crypto to roll your own system, and instead trusting that some crypto library like OpenSSL isn't maintained by morons (it was), and hasn't just become a giant single point of failure for state actors to attack. Protip: The patch that introduced the 'Heart Bleed' bug was accepted on New Years Eve, when everyone else was too drunk to notice.

Sorry, the "common wisdom" of the crypto community is exactly the problem.

Forth Fan Club

just a general thread for everything forth.

This was posted back on the previous progrider and it's a fantastic read.

Three Forths Make a Hole

There are many theories about the best way to program a computer – the ACE project showed just what can be done with Forth, especially in a situation which was constantly changing.

"I have yet to see a decent piece of software written in Forth. Let's face it. Forth stinks." --- John Dvorak, provocateur and columnist, InfoWorld, October 29, 1984.
"Forth is the first language which has been honed against the rock of experience before being cast into bronze." --- Charles Moore, inventor of Forth.

"Only brain-damaged programmers use Forth." --- Alan Holub, ex-C columnist, Dr. Dobb's Journal.

"Forth is like the T'ao; it is a Way, and is realized when followed. Its fragility is its strength; its simplicity is its direction." --- Michael Ham, ex-Forth columnist, Dr. Dobb's Journal.

Concatenative languages can have formal parameters just as non-concatenative languages can not have them.

what are you talking about?
38 Name: Anonymous 2018-10-03 02:19
I've been playing around with Forth after seeing this thread. I'm still learning but so far I can't seem to figure out how to get Forth to print out how words are defined in its dictionary entry. Using a search engine yields too many irrelevant results.

I eventually encountered the relevant word, see, which does just that.

The Day of the Programmer is an international professional day that is celebrated on the 256th (hexadecimal 100th, or the 28th) day of each year (September 13 during common years and on September 12 in leap years). It is officially recognized in Russia.[1][2]

The number 256 (28) was chosen because it is the number of distinct values that can be represented with an eight-bit byte, a value well-known to programmers. 256 is also the highest power of two that is less than 365, the number of days in a common year.

what we need is emoji to be cloud synced. so they control it. meaning we can have seasonal ones, like a dab emoji but they only roll it out for a couple months then take it away.
