Working at security has taught me some valuable lessons. Prior to it I had never thought feeling bored would be so amazing... Dec 2, 2019 at 4:02 PM

      Well, I paid the price for no sleep and crappy work schedule this night. Between midnight and 4 am I was completely out of reality.

        @Kuro DCupu You think Google's bad about doing it? Here in America, phone companies used to keep your address in the phone book as well as your phone number and name, unless you paid a fee for them to keep you out of it. Imagine someone being able to just buy a book and then know where to find you.

        Well, ISPs do/used to do it too and the data is/was available to some IP tracing websites, so just an IP was enough to find a person's name and exact home address without buying anything. And from that we have pranks like

      In our newspapers we have an article that tells us to go exercise outside. When we should avoid heat to avoid collapsing. Yeaaaaah, sure.

        I have exercised in 39°C. Ran a 6 km run, managed to finish only 4.5 of them though. It stopped being funny when I started shivering from cold... In 39°C temperatures no less.

        Not sleeping at night is bad for you though...

        That said, I usually prefer to define "goal of the discussion" first before proceeding further. One of the examples is what do you mean by "advancement". Without an agreement of the definition, it can only lead to disagreement or even conflict.

        @Poryg you've done it again, by the way. Like the YouTube search algorithm, Poryg's exact method for selecting invigorating status topics that draw large responses is held close to the chest, and is a sought after trade secret.

      I used to dislike the concept of open-source. But seeing how much awesome stuff is happening thanks to open-source, I've grown to love it.

        My main problem with open source were two things. One of them was, no income. The other one... Unless you use GPL2.0, someone can just take it, twist it into something and sell it and you can't really do anything about it.

        Third problem is ransoming code. Previous year there was a controversy regarding Linux and code of conduct. The code of conduct would essentially shun people of certain opinions. And some threatened to take down their code if that had happened, which would crash all major distros.

        Now that was a perfectly legit reason to do so and that's not the main thing. The problem is, large corps are getting more and more involved with open-source. And in their hands holding code hostage can prove to be a large negotiating leverage.

      TIL that in C++ making functions virtual can really mess with debuggers and is a nice antidebug measure.

        I'm sure it can't be too hard to find a way around that. Also, why would you want to mess with debuggers anyway? If someone really wants to reverse engineer what you make, they will eventually. Your time would be better spent on code quality.

        Actually, I was hacking PwnAdventure3 and messing around in it with GDB. Could not set breakpoints at or display virtual functions. And no, there's no way to reliably circumvent that, because virtual functions mean that the pointers get assigned on runtime, while pointers to classic functions are assigned statically.

        Guess the guy thought he could get you.

        They like to use massive sums and play up their desperation in an attempt to get people to think they're the ones getting a better deal and they love to appeal to sympathy.

        Like those ones where they claim that if you help them smuggle 20 million out of their country that their evil government is trying to seize illegally after his wife died, he'll pay you 15 million.

        There's people out there who get attached to the idea that this could be real and they desperately want to believe. They start to feel hope and become more and more sure of themselves as it goes on.

        It's heart breaking especially when it happens to old people. $50,000+ sent to scammers.

        This is beyond my understanding to be really honest, but I just want to say that a lot of us here like you and care about you very much, Poryg, and that it IS okay to be wildly different. Do not ever hate yourself for it.

        But the prices go up unreasonably, we're now receiving utter garbage as "dlcs",... It's ridiculous. For example if you pay 29.99€, you get Warcraft 3. If you pay 10€ more, you get four skins to HOTS, a mount to World of Warcraft,... And so far no content to Warcraft 3. Ridiculous.

        My take on this is that the new models make being a "smart consumer" mandatory rather than optional. If the skins and mount feel unnecessary to you, you can just pay 29.99€ and enjoy WC3. I tend to spend no real money on games with gacha systems, just because the cost to get "what I want" is unknown.
