Please, give me infinity row for computing a^x, where a is rational number and x is rational number. In most cases, chas as 5.43^7.3, 25^-8.3

What is "infinity row"?

sounds like something you'd get from google translate if asking for infinite sums of power series in another language

This, to my knowledge, is the best /tech/nology board that exists. 4chan is consumerist gaymer garbage, 8ch/tech/ has been overrun with faggots from /pol/ trying to hide from muh jooz, lainchans data was wiped off the fucking planet when their administrators screwed up, and all of the others are dead.

If this board is to be brought back to a state of prosperity, we need to create and bring forth more educated individuals with a yearning to understand with the motivation and knowledge to pursue their own projects.

Learning 4 Newbs:
C Programming Language (Learn how to make that machine you shitpost with do what you want)
Computer Organization and Design (Learn how that machine you are using to shitpost works)
George Simmons Precalculus In A Nutshell (Will revamp your mathematical knowledge and help you understand deeply)
The Art Of Electronics (Learn how that machine you shitpost on works on the lowest level with electricity!)

Getting Started:
-Look on ebay for old thinkpads (If you are here, you should already have done this)
-Get a small Raspberry Pi (Simple to learn with and a massive community and hundreds of projects done already with firmware support)
-FPGA boards (Big boy electronic design, where you get to psuedodesign your own CPU. Try https://www.nandland.com/ (Xilinx is independent, Altera is Intel owned, so I'm not going to trust them)) LIMITED ONLY BY YOUR IMAGINATION!...
-Some cheapo electronics tools and wires from Amazon or an electronic supply store. Hakko is a japanese-based company and creates some of the best soldering stations and irons for the lowest price, 60/40 solder will get the job done. Don't forget solder wick, or your gonna have a bad time. Avoid working with BGA electonics.
-A multimeter and an Oscilloscope (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) if you want to dig deeper into your electronics. A variable power supply will also give you more freedom.

not OP, but a few reasons is that they're built like tanks, they're fast enough, they're practically free, spare parts are cheap and plentiful, documentation for the pre-Lenovo thinkpads is excellent, and that pencil eraser mouse thing in the middle of the keyboard is an unsurpassed mouse substitute for a laptop

Anonymous 05/24/2019 (Fri) 12:45:11 [Preview] No.13326 del
old thinkpads are pretty /comfy/, excellent build quality and easily repaired/upgraded. unfortunatley the new ones are mostly trash.

Anonymous 05/24/2019 (Fri) 15:05:53 [Preview] No.13327 del
Oh, u were refering to the old ones. I'm suspicious of everything coming from Lenovo, were those also from them? That company had around 3 outbursts of spyware on their firmware.

I had a LG S425 back in the day, it was an excellent laptop. What is your experience with LG and Acer?

Anonymous 05/25/2019 (Sat) 20:57:55 [Preview] No.13328 del
ooh ya soz i wasn't more specific - pre-Lenovo is the only way to go. HP went cheap and cheesy on manufacturing after they bought them.

Terry Davis memorial compilation webm Anonymous 09/30/2018 (Sun) 09:33:39 [Preview] No. 12898 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I want to make a memorial compilation of all his best moments in memorium. This needs to go here, the file size limit on 8ch make this more difficult to do there.

Lets upload and link content here to go into the compilation and let me know what you think the sequence should be and what if any background track.

Mod please sticky this.

I have Tor Browser which runs its own Tor instance. I also have Tor explicitly installed on my Linux system. Should I start up and run the Tor service in addition to using the Tor Browser, even though I technically don't need to? Is this more secure and robust and, if so, why?

Anonymous 05/26/2019 (Sun) 20:08:34 [Preview] No.13333 del
in the tor browser bundle there is an executable file called tor which is a stable build of the tor daemon. In the case of using the tor browser you do not need to run a separate tor instance.

Anonymous 05/27/2019 (Mon) 04:32:23 [Preview] No.13334 del
But what about using Tor with Zeronet? I think it needs to be configured in such a way that it requires the Tor service to be running as a separate instance. I don't think simply accessing zites through the Tor browser is enough in that particular case, but I'm not sure.

Anonymous 05/27/2019 (Mon) 06:42:06 [Preview] No.13335 del
I am not that familiar with zeronet. It uses a port with like tor so you might be right. However I have noticed if you load a zeronet page regular it loads the same speed as if you run it over tor which could mean it is not binded to torsocks or whatever. Or it could be how zeronet distributes content in chunks instead of flow based on speed of connection. I am not sure. I know that you can run i2pd over tor if you use a proxy in between with proxychains. But you can't use i2pd with torsocks directly. So you might have to research more right off the bat i think zeronet and its based on fucking javascritpt which explains the speed because its just bypassing tor with whatever internal java components make it work. That is my theory its probably way off.

Blatent honeypots Anonymous 05/10/2019 (Fri) 07:43:37 [Preview] No. 13316 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I stumbled across some chans while casually browsing and fapping by just following a few forum links. They are actually full on hardcore kid fucker sites, on the open web. Needless to say they are blatant honeypots. I've seen similar here spammed, the links are to obscure file upload sites which enforce google captcha.

I'm wondering, who is behind this shit? No pedo, except perhaps a literal retard, would be browsing bare ip with js enabled and fill out a google captcha to download that content so I doubt highly the links are legit. Whoever it is though is hosting that shit and uploading those images/clips. That's certainly illegal for the eye agencies. Russians maybe? I remember reading mentions of this on 8ch months back so they've been at it for a long while.

Anonymous 05/29/2019 (Wed) 14:00:11 [Preview] No.13336 del
Could be some literal retard, but I wouldn't be one bit surprised if it was some kind of agency. I know 180chan (and its deratives) was hosted by some sketchy hosting company in Amsterdam (Novogara, IIRC) and I believe it's offline now. So not all honeypots, but most of them are.

Also you'd be surprised how many pedo's browse this shit unsecured. Hell, they sometimes even use their work/personal e-mail to sign up for some forum.
