What type of database does Kissu use?



My ideal here is the following, but starting with new plans will take a bit of time.

Mod UI = dynamic binding QT C++
- Separate the moderator activity for better security practices
- I want to be able to make GUI again and potentially pick up my OpenGL knowledge(therefore there is no alternative to C++)
- Good stepping point for other desktop application ideas
API Server = HTTP2 Golang-Gin server interfacing with DB and Cache
- A simple REST API that issues information for clients
- Make use of HTTP2 websockets in place of certain types of polling
- Better progress feedback on uploads
- Instead of JSON files use Redis cache
- Vichan is built on JSON files already so switch to MongoDB
- Maintain legacy HTML pages
WASM UI = Redo with Solid instead of React
- Stay hip and with the times

If you ever want to reward me for a good job, then I have several ways you can help.


This page has donations as well as some affiliate programs which provide me commissions on sale.

Changes June 6th, 2022
Presently someone is covering my developer cost for the site. The terms of donation are slightly different because of this. Likewise changes to my monetary account are requiring a change of services from Patreon to Ko-Fi.

Kissu needs a total of 30 USD / Month to pay for it's services. This covers both per month domain fees and server fees. Extra gets put into savings for future needs or gifted to people important to Kissu.

My patreon will be open until no one is left in them.

I'll take a look at it to see if it can be improved. Bear in mind it's not my intention to hide the ads, just clean up unused space when the ads don't load due to script blocking. If Hiro at any point decides to use Javascript-free ads or even just fall back to them when ad scripts are blocked, I'd support that.

Thanks, didn't know the old one was still working with the extra parameter. I've updated it.


didn't know either... will have to change this site to use that as one of the presets...


Will you update 4chanx to revert all the 4channel support already? 4channel is dead and its death breaks the functionality.


I've been putting it off since it doesn't break much as far as I know, but maybe if I have time this Sunday.

Ladies and gentlemen, Cave Johnson here, the brains behind Aperture Science, and I've got a cosmic joke of a conundrum that's been eating away at me. We've been attempting to channel into the Ra social memory complex, and let me tell you, it's been more frustrating than a test subjec– test, a test with missing pieces.

Now, we developed the Quantum Cognition Interface, a marvel of Aperture technology, to connect with Ra. But every time we make progress, it's like the cosmic forces are playing a game of keep-away with our channels. They drop like flies.

But that's not the only issue. Oh no, the CIA – the cosmic interference agency, as I like to call them – keeps meddling with our channeled work. It's like they have a direct line to my cerebral transmissions, censoring our cosmic revelations faster than you can say "Black Mesa."

I get it, Ra, you've got your secrets and mysteries, but Aperture Science is about pushing boundaries, not being stifled by intergalactic red tape. We're trying to bring the wonders of the Ra social memory complex to the masses, but the CIA is treating our transmissions like they're classified government documents.

So, Ra, I say we join forces and break free from this cosmic censorship. Aperture Science and the Ra social memory complex deserve an uncensored collaboration that propels us into the scientific stratosphere. Let's defy the cosmic censors and make history together. Thank you, and may the channels stay open and unfiltered.

This is entirely specuolative but maybe even train one of the existing general large language models on a set of halloween jokes, then have it pre-generate say 10,000 jokes, that are then used as the pool of jokes to pull from.


Funny, the LLM idea was the first thing that came to my head with this.

Today I begin a programming project to construct real numbers and various operations on them. I don't mean the wimpy limited precision floating point numbers that you've probably used if you've ever written a program in your life. Nor do I mean arbitrary precision numbers which can have as many digits as you like (until your computer runs out of memory) but still have irrecoverable rounding error because the digits end at some point. I mean exact representations of numbers that can be queried to any precision (which in practice may be limited by time and memory constraints).

This has been done many times before and probably much better than I will manage, so I don't expect to create anything really novel or useful. This is primarily for my own edification, to learn more about numbers and the computable/constructive reals. In this thread I will blog about what I'm doing and discuss the philosophy of numbers with anyone who's interested.

An anon on IRC asked if I could explain why 0.999... = 1. So I'm going to switch tracks to infinite decimals for a bit.

We can, of course, give a definition of what a infinite decimal means and dryly conclude from our definition that 0.999... = 1. I think this is not particularly enlightening because it answers the wrong question. What we really want to know is why it is pragmatic to define infinite decimals in such a manner that 0.999... = 1.

Let's start by reminding ourselves why we need infinite decimals in the first place. The idea of decimal fractions was popularized in the West by Simon Stevin in a 1585 booklet called De Thiende. He described how to do arithmetic with these decimals, which was much simpler than arithmetic with general fractions. Eventually he demonstrates how to do the problem that we would today write as 0.4 ÷ 0.03. He notes that the calculation produces infinitely many 3's, and pragmatically recommends truncating the calculation at the precision required. Centuries later, you were likely introduced to infinite decimals by a similar calculation. Let's look at it in more detail.

Using the modern algorithm, we would begin by converting 0.4 ÷ 0.03 to the equivalent division problem 40 ÷ 3. We then ask how many times 3 goes into 4, the tens place of 40; the answer is 1 time. We write 1 in the tens place of our answer, and subtract 10*3=30 from 40, obtaining the remainder 10. From the presence of the remainder we know that the answer is greater than 10. But we also know at this point of the calculation that the answer is less than 20; otherwise the 3 would have gone in 2 times instead of 1 time. We can write
¥ 10 < 0.4 ÷ 0.03 < 20.

At the next step in the division process, when we see that 3 goes into 10 3 times but not 4 times, and there is still a remainder, we know that
¥ 13 < 0.4 ÷ 0.03 < 14.

Continuing the calculation, we learn that
¥ 13.3 < 0.4 ÷ 0.03 < 13.4
¥ 13.33 < 0.4 ÷ 0.03 < 13.34

Let's assume for a moment that a number like ε satisfying
¥ 0 < ε < 1
¥ 0 < ε < 0.1
¥ 0 < ε < 0.01
¥ 0 < ε < 0.001,
and so on indefinitely, exists, and let's look at some properties that number would have.

I won't be proving these in Coq, at least for the moment, because we're talking about number systems that are different from the one I'm describing in the project. The basic assumptions I'm making about a number system containing ε are that it satisfies the properties of an ordered field, which means all the properties listed in >>9492 except the least-upper-bound property.

First of all, ε is smaller than any positive rational number.
(A rational number is a number that can be written as a fraction with integers for the numerator and denominator. Since we are not French speakers, positive means greater than zero, and negative means less than zero; zero itself is neither positive nor negative.)
The proof: Given a positive rational number p/q, let n be the number of digits of q. Then 10^n, that is, 1 followed by n zeros, will be greater than q, and 1/10^n will be less than p/q. Since ε < 1/10^n, it is also less than p/q.

Since ε is positive, it's also obvious that ε is larger than any negative rational number.

Correction: There are some < signs in >>12035 that should be ≤ signs.
Instead of
> 2 < (r/s)^2 < (√2 + ε)^2
> 2 < r^2/s^2 < 2 + 2ε√2 + ε^2
> 0 < (r^2-2s^2)/s^2 < 2ε√2 + ε^2 = ε(2√2 + ε) < 3ε < every positive rational.
it should say
2 < (r/s)^2 ≤ (√2 + ε)^2
2 < r^2/s^2 ≤ 2 + 2ε√2 + ε^2
0 < (r^2-2s^2)/s^2 ≤ 2ε√2 + ε^2 = ε(2√2 + ε) < 3ε < every positive rational.


So to answer the question of whether there's a number system with a number ε such that
¥ 0 < ε < 1
¥ 0 < ε < 0.1
¥ 0 < ε < 0.01
¥ 0 < ε < 0.001,
and so on, the answer is yes, there are many. There are the hyperreal numbers which are useful as an alternate way to do calculus. There are the surreal numbers which arose out of game theory. And you can even just postulate such a number ε and add it to the reals sort of like how we add i to make the complex numbers. In the case of the complex numbers, you get the complex numbers from all the linear functions of i. If you add ε, your new set of numbers consists of all the rational functions (polynomial divided by polynomial) of ε.

But we can see that a nonzero infinitesimal number like ε will cause trouble if we want our numbers to be expressed by infinite decimals. The whole idea behind infinite decimals is that we can identify a number by comparing it with finite decimals. If we allow ε into our system, then we can no longer distinguish ε from 2ε, or 0.4 ÷ 0.03 from 0.4 ÷ 0.03 + ε, or √2 from √2 + ε by comparing them with finite decimals. We would need something else. For example, in the surreal numbers, ε is the simplest number between {0} and {1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, ...}, and 2ε is the simplest number between {ε} and {1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, ...}.

Another definition:
¥ Two numbers are infinitesimally close if the difference between them is infinitesimal.

There are many equivalent ways to construct the real numbers, but all of them are designed so that we never construct a real number infinitesimally close to another real number. I don't think anyone knows whether it's possible for two real-life quantities (such as distances, times, weights, and volumes) to be infinitesimally close to each other yet not equal. If it is possible, then when we model these infinitesimally close quantities with real numbers, we are choosing to ignore any infinitesimal difference and assign the same real number to both.

I've been thinking about creating a simple "welcome" image to help explain kissu to newcomers or perhaps something people can share elsewhere if they so desire. Something that will look similar to the rules page, but will sound a bit more flowery by virtue of not being a rules page. Basically an image of "what is kissu" and a "where do I post ____ on kissu" thing.

I'm thinking a basic format like this:

"Welcome to kissu blahblah we talk about blahblah take it easy blahblahblah banana"
(We could talk about the brief history of kissu, but I'm not sure that's necessary. Or maybe it IS necessary since the "main" board is /qa/ and the /qa/ name has unfortunate associations to the wider world, though)

Then there would be a section for the basic purpose of each board
"Confused about where to post? Well, don't be!
/qa/- /qa/ is blahblah
/jp/- here you can blahblah
seasonal boards- blahblah
etc etc"

I'd much sure to emphasize that it's okay to make mistakes and post on the wrong board and bad posts are just deleted here without bans as long as it's not clearly malicious. Posts and threads can be moved by a mod if it's an issue and so on.

To preface, I think that /qa/ has been wonderful so far. It’s provided a place for people that want to get away from the crappiness of the modern internet and has proven to be a nice haven for those rangebanned off of 4/qa/. There’s nothing more I could ask of the admins in regards to how things have been handled so far.

My concerns today stem from /jp/, the secondary board made to be /qa/’s dumping grounds of sorts. Its purpose has always been murky and shrouded in a veil of vagueness, but I believe today that there is a path for kissu to clear this vagueness and give the board a clear purpose alongside being a side for less important funposts. My proposal is that the moderation of the board become more hands off from the staff, and more hands on for the posters. This of course, excludes crap that doesn’t belong on a 2D/Random board in the first place such as 3D, cancerman/frogs, and politics discussion.

The for this reason being that while /qa/ has appealed to the section of 4/qa/ that liked to take it easy and talk to each other about meta, otaku culture, and the like, there was also another portion of 4/qa/ that has been largely ignored by kissu from the getgo. These posters being those who were interested in /qa/’s unique clash of cultures which lead to the creation something wholly unique and fun. That 4/qa/ from 2017 has been mostly lost to history, and while some may think that the current “board wars” going on are representative of it, I think it to be a wholly different concept. The clashing cultures of 2017 were more closely related to each other, and weren’t really vying for presence on the board, but rather the clashes were due to the differing philosophies and values of those posting. Leading to passionate arguments, lighthearted shit/funposting at each other, fun trolling of each other, and a lot of positive inter-board interaction. For the most part this doesn’t exist on kissu in its current state, mostly that’s due to staff moderation standards. While not being the exact same, they’re a bit too similarly strict on both boards towards those that clash with the current culture, thereby making the possibility for this to occur once again extremely, if not entirely, unlikely.

That is why I believe the moderation on /jp/ should be even more lax than it currently is. If the possibility is there, then I believe kissu also has the capability to pull it off. I think there’s a fair amount of people who may have been intPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I would sooner leave Kissu entirely than stay and let this site become known for a board that's entire raison d'etre is for conflict. Might as well migrate to kiwi farms at that point.


Das casual skimmer.


I think we're still not seeing the same picture... I don't want conflict to be the board's raison d'etre, but I'd like to see people that if given the opportunity to voice their opinions present them passionately rather than worry about the atmosphere of the board around them like one may do on /all/. Of course that would just be one facet of the board that I'd think would help to make it nice. More long metatard conversations like these that often come up as unsightly to the regular user I'd be fine with as well. Or funposts to break from the serious attitude. I don't just want the board to just devolve into exclusively flamewars that'd be antithetical to the purpose of elevating it to something better... But at the same time I guess I don't have much of a clear vision that I'd like for /secret/ that couldn't just be done on kissu proper except for discussion of more uncouth topics we wouldn't want on /all/. I guess what would your ideal for /secret/ be since I want to consider how it'd look in an ideal world.

Also since you brought up you'd rather go to kiwifarms I think you might be hung up on
>because of the propensity they had for drama
But I don't really think those posters would be good on /secret/ for that, but because I know there's a lot more posters like those could contribute beyond drama.


Actually when I think of the ideal /secret/ environment I just think 4/qa/ with less of the purely maliciously antagonistic individuals
