Im not dead yet (dunno about next week), for those that knew me here when I was around, but I really wanted to come to a place I know I could get some comments about it, but what the whole IT/Tech world right now?
Python and its CoC shenanigans
Mozilla telemetry spying on you https://reddit.com/r/linux/...
And so on and on, the ride isnt over yet, right? (it never is, it only gets more fun from here on baby)7
Have you heard about the Embrace, Expand and Extinguish idealogy? lets think about it:
Atom/Electron (embrace) -> Atom fork named "VSCode" (extend) -> Atom (extinguish) as it was developbed by Github company.
"R" lang (embrace) -> incompatible SQL Server 2016 R lang extension (extend) -> R lang (extinguish soon).
Android -> CyanogenMod (embrace) -> CyanogenMod (extinguish) as M$ "sponsored" Cyanogen Inc to destroy CyanogenMod
Linux (prejudge) -> sponsors RedHat, Debian, SuSE, Alpine and Canonical/Ubuntu (embrace), forces unstable backdoored "systemd" -> Linux (extinguish soon)
Reusing the last image I did because I didnt wanted to make more OC stuff cos the few ++ gained arent worth it5
Yeah, I can see you guys are also commenting (t.memeing) about this so may as well jump in the fun too.
Also Im still alive to anyone that may care an atom about it3
Alot of youngster still give absolute Zero fuck though

Holy shit! so after my last news report https://devrant.com/rants/1063342/... , I also shared the news in my site where there is a guy that works in a Washington ISP and also offer mail servers and such for the locals... fun and joke time has ended my friends, any SysAdmins here regarding this want to comment on this topic?9
A group of Security researchers has officially fucked hardware-level Intel botnet officially branded as "Intel Management Engine" they did so by gathering it all the autism they were able to get from StackOverflow mods... though they officially call it a Buffer Overflow.
On Wednesday, in a presentation at Black Hat Europe, Positive Technologies security researchers Mark Ermolov and Maxim Goryachy plan to explain the firmware flaws they found in Intel Management Engine 11, along with a warning that vendor patches for the vulnerability may not be enough.
Two weeks ago, the pair received thanks from Intel for working with the company to disclose the bugs responsibility. At the time, Chipzilla published 10 vulnerability notices affecting its Management Engine (ME), Server Platform Services (SPS), and Trusted Execution Engine (TXE).
The Intel Management Engine, which resides in the Platform Controller Hub, is a coprocessor that powers the company's vPro administrative features across a variety of chip families. It has its own OS, MINIX 3, a Unix-like operating system that runs at a level below the kernel of the device's main operating system.
It's a computer designed to monitor your computer. In that position, it has access to most of the processes and data on the main CPU. For admins, it can be useful for managing fleets of PCs; it's equally appealing to hackers for what Positive Technologies has dubbed "God mode."
The flaws cited by Intel could let an attacker run arbitrary code on affected hardware that wouldn't be visible to the user or the main operating system. Fears of such an attack led Chipzilla to implement an off switch, to comply with the NSA-developed IT security program called HAP.
But having identified this switch earlier this year, Ermolov and Goryachy contend it fails to protect against the bugs identified in three of the ten disclosures: CVE-2017-5705, CVE-2017-5706, and CVE-2017-5707.
The duo say they found a locally exploitable stack buffer overflow that allows the execution of unsigned code on any device with Intel ME 11, even if the device is turned off or protected by security software.

I post mostly daily news, commentaries and such on my site for anyone that wish to drop by there21
So I was thinking whenever to run a Kanban-Board style ala Trello subdomain for the people on my site that are helping me with bug hunting and such and I came up with this article about this project that got 6k Stars in Github in 5 days https://github.com/thedaviddias/..., what is this project about? " The perfect Front-End Checklist for modern websites and meticulous developers "
Here is the article for those wishing to read more about it https://medium.freecodecamp.org/how...1
So I dont know if this has been brought here already but I was busy lately with an oncoming amount of users of my site... and they found a few bugs, anyway me sucking aside:
To my fellow American DevRant users, how do you guys feel when you are about to get fucked by the posibility of get Net Neutrality in your country? Man what is going there sure is a tragicomedy, uh?24
Hahaha, well would you Imagine my shock?
But then again people enable this personal hell to happen5
Ok guys, since what Im using is a laptop with some low specs since Im too broke to even afford a new FM2+ motherboard to repair my desktop pc and have a little more raw power to use and make more fancy stuff, I wish to know if anyone here legit is interested in some Original content images that Im thinking in make just out of spite in the Zerg Rush of users spaming about F. Quantum and if its worth my already highly limited time just to get hopefully more ++ than my last AMD OC that pretty much noone cared about6
So I decided that instead of let a bad meme thread misinforms our users, specially the young ones I decided is better to make a proper one with Open Source/Libre Software and Hardware in the community and bring up attention to it, of course at the same time I require if you could both ++ this to help it up so new users can see it and also for you guys to help out informing us about such projects if you came around,now to the point:
For me I can at least comment that seems RISC and POWER may make a new come back as fully open source hardware without any kind of close sourced drivers and such, right now Im only aware of this platforms:
There is only 1 motherboard Im aware is sold commercially to big companies and is quite recent, mostly after the whole New EU law about data breaches and such so yeah, Its rather wicked expensive and not for your average joe:
Not only dev related but remember to constantly backup your important info of your Hard disk constantly... specially if those disk have not only the lastest code you are have been working on but photos of you and high school friends back in the day when the original Iphone was just released that you havent properly printed yet.
I think that is one of the nearest thing I can think of that I regret lately aside from simple being "my life" in itself1
So... has anyone yet made a comment about now exHead AMD Chief of GPU division Raja Koduri joining Intel?
Now this is awkward after I made this OC image not so long ago :/
Also in other news can we comment that Systemd has pretty much took over most linux distros? is this the new NSA backdoor? (before someone points out is open source, have anyone been able to properly audit it?)4
How many here just want off of this wild ride that life is, I sure do I .... I want so badly off right now3
Do you wanna play a game?
WeedFS (CHMODing into 420 fam)6
I will like to ask my fellow users here if you currently are studying game development or if you are working already in a game to sell and which store you are thinking to publish it?1
So I want to know, can I shill at least one of my "working" sites here? I want to do measure some organic/natural traffic on this so original site(/sarcasm)
Also Im want to know if there are people here interested to help me out with my other site if they could ... specially since my finances will perhaps force me soon to take a local (retail) job to afford "normal" living5
Hey guys, is anyone here looking for a VPS for their projects or website? I will be honest and say Im running incredible low in money and I could "sell" a few ones that I have and wish to help a fellow wannabe dev in need to afford some food next week3
What Im doing with my life, Hurricane edition.
So Im still working in a site that I have keep saying Im about to launch Soon™, most of it was already working for a while but the notification system was Youtube-levels of ""broken"", I personally didnt wanted to spend time on it fixing it since I really wanted to launch the damn thing already to show the world I havent been wasting my time/shortening my lifespan doing fuck all ... but I remember that your average normie wants eyecandy and all that stuff ... urgh ok fine, will try to fix and that I did ... but in doing so I ended from a ~90% fully working site to a crippled ~50% "working" site.Also some neat info for those prepping for the hurricane https://imgur.com/gallery/tzv0d, also because some stuff going with my life, it makes me aware of all the homeless people out there and hope they have proper shelter and such.2
Greeting everyone,first post of myself here, be gentle with me and kindly throw this needed dude some neat ++ since I wish to have a nice avatar.
So I wanted to share and interesting thing I found out, I was compiling FFMPEG from source following the official(?) tutorial → https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/..., everything was going ok so far until I got into LibOgg part and says to download libogg-1.3.2.tar.gz from xiph.org and untar it, then it gave me an error about being unable to do so, ok whatever just download the zip version and unzip it AND ... it gave an error again that is not a valid file, ok what is going on here now? decided to run file libvorbis-1.3.4.tar.gz/zip version and it said "HTML document, ASCII text", oh... kden, that is interesting.
Decided to actually check the url "http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/..." in my browser and it sends me to "https://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/xiph/..." and the archives there do work since libvorbis does the same thing, so perhaps someone should tell the guys at FFMPEG to stop sending people to xiph.org and sent them to the other url.
Now this is mostly an interesting thing I found out that I wish to share, I dont really any rant to share ... at least not dev-related because Im sure full of stuff to rant in my life6
