What is your favorite programming language and why?

Anything but Go. Go was created for stupid people. From one of the creators of Go:

Forth. Relevant pasta:
>Sometimes as Forther you feel like a Jedi night. People think about
>Forth as an ancient religion, with it's followers doing things like
>standing on one hand and lifting stones with the force of their minds.
>And well, The Emperor doesn't like Forth.
Just kidding again!
A language is a tool. You should pick the best tool for the job you want to accomplish
...that being said I'm most efficient in python for most tasks I do, but the languages that really fascinate me are the ones that allow you to extend their syntax (like forths and lisps).

http://catb.org/jargon/html/magic-story.html
>my personal experience, how I found out about hacker culture
I was just a kid when I... sigh... became curious about becoming a "hacker", in the mainstream meaning of the term. The reason I think was that at the time I heard about the "Anonymous hacker group" and obviously was extremely fascinated by it. I mean, they were fighting for good, and were epic hackers! And they did it all from their bedrooms, and were otherwise pretty ordinary people like me!
Thing is, surprisingly enough on one of the websites which claimed to be associated with "Anonymous" I found a link to catb, specifically the "how to become a hacker" page
And that page encouraged me to learn more about programming languages, which had a big impact on me, as discovering langs other than java, python and c exposed me to new and different ideas that I probably wouldn't have heard much of otherwise until much later. It's also indirectly what got me into emacs. The culture itself really inspired me at the time too, and even though sadly I didn't become a hacker, I think those ideas influenced me growing up. Later my focus shifted to other things, and gradually I forgot about all this up until recently, when after revisiting some old places and reading some new things I made this thread

How do you anons think the universe was created?
Do you think it was made by some higher power? Maybe a scientific phenomenon, or perhaps it was just always there.
All thoughts and beliefs are welcome, religion, scientific research or just personal beliefs, they're all just as valid to the question. After the universe was created, how did all the atoms and matter get there? What caused all of this matter to just appear? Excited to hear your thoughts.

I think this universe is just some allocated space with the purpose of creating infinite more concepts.

Some realm beyond this universe is constantly creating and puts its essence into everything it creates, which makes 'god' us and everything we can possibly see, feel, taste, think of.

Our purpose is information. All food that we eat is different than the one we ate before, and all of them have a different reaction within our body. Our flexible DNA code is constantly changing and so is the environment.

Every time that we do something we produce something new. Even when not doing something we create new things in this space.. why are we not doing something? What has lead us to not do something. What motivates us to do something? Where does that come from? What does that thing consist of and how do the smaller parts work together?


The entire universe and all realms beyond exist for the search of absolute knowledge. Till now that has been unlimited so we continue to live and breath.

They say God knows everything from past to future? That's because he can't know more THAN IS.

There is a criminal organization in Brazil using NSO Group's Pegasus to infect devices for hack for hire, to incite terrorism, blackmail people, produce illegal pornography and assist in assassinations. They also have other advanced malware, like UEFI implants and even persistent implants for Kindle and Raspberry Pi. Plus face/voice recognition on every camera and microphone they can get into, in public or private places.

Brazil won't do anything to stop them. Only the FBI, CIA and NSA can stop them.

There is also the possibility that they were engaged on the hack of Bezos' smartphone.

If you know of any security researcher who wants to reverse engineer the exploits they are using, I am more than willing to help them.

If you want a story about how they operate, I am willing to work with you to expose them.

back in the old days, I used to use Avast, as it was considered the best of the free ones. Nowadays, I hear Avast is basically malware itself, so I wouldn't recommend using it. If you are using Windows 10, the one built in is probably good enough for everyday use. The main way you would get infected would be installing/running shady software. Don't download cracked/pirated software is the best way to avoid malware. Also, use an blockader. Drive-by malware ads are the main other way that malware spreads these days, and that is incredibly easy to defeat.

If you don't think the built in Windows anti-virus is good enough, you can try uploading downloads to virustotal.
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/
It scans the upload across dozens of different anti-viruses.

>Why do malware warnings scare me so much?
They are designed to be scary. They make them scary to keep normalfags from clicking the "go to the website anyway button." The do this because they have a vested interest in keeping malware off of normalfags computers. If a normalfag can easily click past the warning, they will, and they will inevitably get infected. When they get infected, the normalfag blames the antivirus for not protecting them instead of themselves for deliberately not following the warning. This blaming of the antivirus would reflect poorly on the company and also allow malware to spread further. Thus, they have to resort to scaring normalfags as part of the systems protection.

This is the same way that religion works. Make up a scary God and punishment in order to keep normalfags from harming themselves.
