I've heard you can download any videos from any site without using extensions on any browser. Is this true? How do you do it?
Any good? How close is it to programming in x86-32 Assembly?
its much closer to AVR and other microcontroller assembly
its instruction set is extremely simple and it only has 2 operands
that being said, its still very educational, especially with the variety of "puzzles" (homework tier problems) there are
So I'm getting an i5-2500k and need a mobo.
I want a $40-50 mobo, and I've come to two choices: ASRock or MSI
I'm only going to be using 1333mhz RAM and will only do light CPU OC'ing. So, ASRock or MSI?
Learning python for educational purposes, can /g/ recommend any projects that would be good for a greenhorn programmer?
I recommend "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist". It's like a very in-depth codecademy tutorial. Goes over actual best practices. I'm an experienced code monkey and learned a lot going through it.
What do you know about face swapping technology and its potential applications for anonymity technology?
Are there good libraries available for face-swapping images? Do we know what snapchat uses? Current face-swap tech seems to not be very "sticky," ie if part of your face moves out of the frame, or a foreign object gets in your face or goes into your mouth, it often gets broken and flickers or superimposes the image over something other than the face. Obviously even a momentary flicker exposing your face could be disastrous if you're trying to use face-swap...

Does anyone remember a one-off sci-fi drama in the UK around the year 2000 where some hacker terrorist guy uses a "video morph" to swap his face? I can't remember what it was. It was supposed to be a prediction of the future and it got quite a lot of other stuff accurate, like voice recognition
>momentary flicker exposing your face
Get a static picture of the background and use that, then just add in the new face. You'd never have to have your real face in the image, and if there was an error it would just drop back to the background.
Probably a proprietary implementation. You could use OpenCV libs to do something very similar though. Inaccuracies are primarily because it's computationally infeasible to do something like this with extremely high accuracy, so they use speed-up techniques like Haar-like features and hashing. To complicate this, not everything is pose-consistent so you need to account for multiple permutations/orientations of edge features.
If transcoding an mp3 at the same bitrate will degrade quality, does saving a jpg at the same quality setting over and over again degrade quality?
Just got an electrical shock from my headphones connector at the same time my closed laptop next to me started playing music it was in sleep mode, im running win 7 on main pc and debian on laptop. Pulled out all the wall sockets in my room, booted up my main pc now everything seems fine. How fucked am i? was it the company? on just an solarflare? Fuck guys im so fucking paranoid,
I have a very specific problem on my android, its a opx running cm 13 nightly (pic related)
I can't seem to use anything besides clover over my LTE connection, YouTube shows errors of not being connected to the internet,fire fox ,chrome ,google now...
None of these work sept for clover.

Who here using older phones for another 3 yrs or so ?
FreeCST, was started on December 6, 2015, we want to help educate people about the numerous security threats, and how to protect their self online and offline from cyber security attacks.
Haven't really seen much of these.
Hello, I'm looking to buy a graphic card of a budget of maximum €50. I'm considering to buy Sapphire Radeon R7 240, but I'm not really sure if it's worth. Which gpu is good for €50?
x = "b"
print x == "a" or "b"
If you execute this code on python, the ouput is "b" instead of True. Can someone explain this to me?
>still using Python 2
to answer your question, the second statement is basicallyprint <expresssion>, where 'expression' in this case isx == "a" or "b". The value of that expression itself is the value of the first operand that is true, which is "b".
order of operations.
"==" is before "or"
So the 2nd line is equal to:print (x == "a") or "b"
First do the parensprint (false) or "b"
"or" returns the second thing if the first one is false, soprint "b"
Is Go the best language for distributed systems?

>The key point here is our programmers are Googlers, they’re not researchers. They’re typically, fairly young, fresh out of school, probably learned Java, maybe learned C or C++, probably learned Python. They’re not capable of understanding a brilliant language but we want to use them to build good software. So, the language that we give them has to be easy for them to understand and easy to adopt. -- Rob Pike
