Does anybody know what happened to serax? I was using to as my default searcher (even though it is slower than most) but it seems to be down. I'm not sure what to use in the meantime, what do you use? Unrelated image.
I'm trying to do something but I don't know the right tool for it.
I want to get the page number from lsw and store it in a file. In this case number 96
This is an example output.

Yeah like automatically downloading every damn thing you need a la sudo? I mean I used it when I was told to, sure I know how to remote into unix blade in retail stores and navigate all these fake ass virtual systems, yeah, it's fucking exciting as all fuck, don't get me wrong. I am fully vested in social security, I worked my whole fuckin life in IT, and I can live on < 1000 dollars a month. I live in a /pol/ based mentality, this tech board cannot understand, forgive me for abusing this thread. I pray OP will delete my posts.
>there's still mostly proprietary >hardware if nothing else, BUT >there's definitely not the same >amount of trust involved when >you're using Windows.
After I wrote the above posts, I realized that, I love being baited by a snipey comment like that, "fuckin windows users" I have heard it my whole life from the old days. But see, when baited, I just eat the bait, the fisherman, everything. It's fun for me. Yet, not so much fun for the fishers.
but thy have to slum for work like all editors and end up cutting dome fag pr0n eventually, oh the horror stories I hear from career editors. Is video or audio engineering really even an actual job that people get paid for? Wow, that's awesome I guess. But the suffering of editing other people's worst video work, is painful, so, maybe pain taken, factors into this equation? We can assume faggoty means weak and petty and not an allusion to sexual prefs.
>>8094 That is being over dramatic. You would not be surprised how little some of these musicians know about technology. If you can quickly compliment thee clients desired sound then you are acting as that artists foundation and can control that artist completely for that en-devour. is the artistic intent that they pay you to captain. That is the feeling of power. Now when someone wants you to do something that is artistically bankrupt a lot of these guys fill it in with their kikeling virtue memeing.Disrupting that dynamic by whatever means necessary is the pleasure that is received.
Hmm, not webm related but that was some good stuff. but
> kikeling virtue memeing.
WTF either you are a kike or you have virtue. I don't buy into recent faggy terms or chanisms, like virtue signal etc, means jack shit to me.
This is kinda fitting tho that we have a cross spectrum thread on tech board about webms and windows versus unix old farts, music engineer versus musician, heh, reminds me of that skrillex song with some dude talking about how no one is a musician if you can't play guitar. I mean, I am bout as good at guitar as I am at nixy stuff, but still, can I play along, yes, can I set up a BF2 server yes. Can I make and upload a webm? Hmm only just recently, thanks to some germans.
Any way we can increase the character limit used for flags? The current limit (16) is barely large enough for a relatively normal name like 'Michael Jordan' let alone enough to submit some of our gag flags like...
Person of Interest - NHP - Yakub the Evil Black Scientist Who Lived 6,600 Years Ago and Created the White Race Through a Selective Breeding Process Known as 'Grafting'
I don't know what the formal limit of flag files is either as it doesn't say, but I currently have close to 700 of them and they're all very dear to our community so something to keep in mind.
Also it would be nice if we could embed off site videos hosted on youtube, liveleak, dailymotion, vimeo etc. into the post itself like 8chan. Of course you can just post urls in the post's comment body itself, but embedding is a nice feature that gives the post a contextual visual to accompany it, gnomesaiyan?
>>5722 >Well, I just feel a big image in the middle of a text post would just cause a problem.
Basically what happens on 8chan if you embed a video it precludes any images being posted, it isn't placed in the middle of the post in the text, rather off to the side in the same manner an image is.
>And we can't put it in the media slot... well maybe we can, I'll look into it.
Consider doing a little digging into 8chan/vichan's code-I don't imagine it's all that hard. While I'm a layman so take my guess with a grain of salt I would assume it's just an 'IF' statement that swaps the <div> that normally displays image(s) at variable dimensions with a <div> that displays an embedded youtube video with static dimensions.
>CyberX has confirmed at least 70 victims successfully targeted by the operation in a range of sectors including critical infrastructure, media, and scientific research. The operation seeks to capture a range of sensitive information from its targets including audio recordings of conversations, screen shots, documents and passwords. Unlike video recordings, which are often blocked by users simply placing tape over the camera lens, it is virtually impossible to block your computer’s microphone without physically accessing and disabling the PC hardware.
>Most of the targets are located in the Ukraine, but there are also targets in Russia and a smaller number of targets in Saudi Arabia and Austria. Many targets are located in the self-declared separatist states of Donetsk and Luhansk, which have been classified as terrorist organizations by the Ukrainian government.
judging by the targeted countries i wonder who would benefit from something like this...

>"Schools and libraries subject to CIPA may not receive the discounts offered by the E-rate program unless they certify that they have an Internet safety policy that includes technology protection measures.

Before adopting this Internet safety policy, schools and libraries must provide reasonable notice and hold at least one public hearing or meeting to address the proposal."
It is because of them that filtering software such as IBoss exists and why schools have google integrated within their computers to force students to use their services and to use a filtered search.
>>8071 I'm not for censorship but i get what he's saying, school networks are for school and not for playing games, watching porn etc. And the reason why they force students to use Chrome is likely that the lazy admin isn't foolish enough to require users to use IE, and makes use of Windows GPO to set up stuff like proxies and custom certificates (Chrome uses Windows' settings, Firefox doesn't trust Windows and has its own way of configuring this).
>>8056 Who cares if the geniuses are multitasking and playing games while you give an inefficient slow lecture, or hand out pointless crossword puzzels as busy work which everyone will cheat on. If the sumb-fucks are not gonna study when it matters, simply hold them back and flunk them until they shape up or drop out.
Back when I was in high school 4chan was blocked for CP. I thought it was pretty funny. iBoss can be bypassed if you manage to get into the default iboss account on the school system; in mine, I just searched it up on the active directory and guessed the password. Administrators almost had me arrested lmao
Either way, fuckit. It only applies to school kids and even then only 8 hours of the day. For computer dorks it provides a fun game of trying to break it. As long as they don't extend it out to the "real world" and make a filter for all ISPs, I don't exactly give a shit
I'm trying my best to remeber dealing with power when I was working at Intel, so bear with me.
The 'power' directory is for runtime power management and coresponds to a device going into a sleep state when it is idle (this is *not* the same as suspend to RAM). This directory exists for most devices (I was mostly fiddling with USB devices). In this case a sleep state makes sense for a device such as USB keyboard or mouse, since the device may not be being used and should enter a sleep state (but it's usually fucky and misses the first keypress or motion so it's usually disabled), but I have no idea what it would mean for a monitor. I'm guessing that changing that brightness doesn't count as entering a different *state*, so any power savings from changing the brightness is automatically done by the component; the only time runtime power management states may come into play is when your monitor shuts off due to inactivity (this is my guess, not confirmed).
Is there any more news on the Jacob Appelbaum situation? It seems like he's disappeared off of the face of the Earth after the allegations. I find the fact that multiple witnesses have come out against the stories that were told on their behalf disturbing.

This from the article above is also true, everyone knows the Assange thing is bullshit. Now that he's a cold corpse, it's time to admit that he just did "the boyfriend maneuver" and only faggots would object because they have no interest in normal things like pussy. Assange RIP, may have been a Zio tool but he will shine chrome, eternal, for his love of midnight snack. Fully allowed within the lines play.
working with a developer from /librejp/, we'll made some minor adjustments on page loading and refresh. We're trying to: 1. Make sure freshly added posts at the bottom of the page have all the same bells as whistles at the posts that were there when the page loaded 2. Cut down on browser stalls when processing large pages
Let me know if you notice anything better or worse.

Hey here's a feature I'd really like. 8ch.net has the ability to screenshot a page. I'd really like that for EndChan. I've made something before but my time is best spent on fixing bugs. I also have to fix the unban system apparently.

>Hey here's a feature I'd really like. 8ch.net has the ability to screenshot a page. I'd really like that for EndChan. I've made something before but my time is best spent on fixing bugs. I also have to fix the unban system apparently. would you like to reflect endchan server's front-end files and back-end files to the repository? (Several files in the repository look old) I want to see the bug.
I found where that spam full of random garbage is coming from. It doesn't have any discernable pattern so we can't use the autoban addon to remove it, but it's all coming from the same /24 range of IPs in Russia so we can just rangeban it. The problem is that Lynxchan currently only does /16 rangebans, which would result in substantial collateral damage. To counter this I'm enabling the block bypass function.
If you are rangebanned, you can use the block bypass function to solve a CAPTCHA and bypass the rangeban. This requires your browser to store a "bypass" cookie. No CAPTCHA will be required to post if your IP has not been subject to a rangeban. Block bypasses last for 24 hours or 50 posts.
I've already asked StephenLynx about adding a second, smaller rangeban level.

>>8027 You are welcome to mail Walrus <email@example.com> and ask why he misconfigured the donate page.
reCAPTCHA is effective, easy for end users, has a good noscript fallback, and has a good API. Naturally not everyone has the same captcha preference as me and that is why I've made it as easy as possible (technically and license-wise) for you to fork tokumei-recaptcha and make it use a different captcha implementation.
>>8028 >reCAPTCHA is effective, easy for end users no. fuck off with this shit. your site was completely broken shit when you spammed it on 8ch/tech/, with beliefs like this no wonder. since you can't even stray from coding "user friendly" bullshit like HN UX hipsters do, your site will never be useful to anyone who cares about privacy or security
>>8051 Once again, I am not Walrus. My site was not broken, and I did not spam /tech/.
reCAPTCHA *is* effective enough. Google offers a difficulty slider when you generate an API keypair and the maximum difficulty is enough for nearly any site (I can barely solve them as a human). The minimum is quite good too; in practice even a dumb captcha whose answer is always the same keeps out nearly all spam.
reCAPTCHA *is* easy for end users. Many just need to click on a check box.
Obviously a captcha can't be perfectly effective and easy for end users at the same time, but reCAPTCHA's difficulty slider lets individual Tokumei sites decide what balance they want.
I write user-friendly software with good UX not because I am a hipster (I personally hate material design) but because I am selling my software to users. For most users, material design is friendly. For the rest, I provide an excellent API so you can post from the command line or write your own interface. The material web interface also provides an easy way to install custom CSS to strip material bits you don't like. I don't know what else you want.
If you think Tokumei is HN hipstershit, you have not read a line of code.
>>8059 So, why then you would give your users website visit info to Google if dumb captcha with fixed answer is enough (and unless someone goes after spamming your very specific site it holds true)? Why not make locally generated captcha like this website does? I dislike how exactly captcha is implemented here (see lynxchan thread, >>7569), but it is many times better than privacy-invading Google's "service".
>>8065 >So, why then you would give your users website visit info to Google
Unless users ignore our recommendation to use TBB, we are not giving any useful info to either the Tokumei site host or to Google.
In the edge case that a user trusts a Tokumei host enough to access a site over the clearnet (either the site is served over the clearnet directly or they use a gateway) but does not trust Google, you have a point.
>if dumb captcha with fixed answer is enough
For Tokumei sites where this is enough, indeed this should be used over the tokumei-recaptcha apps.
>Why not make locally generated captcha like this website does?
Because captcha is complex and Tokumei is not HN shit. This nodeshit website depends on fucking ImageMagick.
But for clearnet hosts that want to avoid pinging Google and don't care about back end complexity, sure, a local captcha app would be good.
>>5643 It's not real. I've seen terrible things on the internet, but stuff that's truly important is kept hidden extremely well. If the US military for example were to have something similar to Tor but more secure and someone like you found out about it, they'd burn it to the ground and use whatever backup technology they had in case of such an event. If there are super secret organizations or sites out there, you will never find them. I've been digging for years, and I've found some really spoopy shit, but still nothing that truly shocked me.
Why the fuck does this stupid filter even exist? On work provided computers, this shit is integrated into the computer and tracks your location constantly and you can't end it's process in the task manager/monitor.
At the same time, it is always using your network regardless of your internet browser being opened or not.
How it's "integrated"? I bet you can boot alternative operating system on that computer to bypass all botnet crap. Just don't write to main HDD if you gonna use that computer like that. Don't do anything non-work-related on spyware-d (by employer and Microsoft) operating system.

>>7989 I'm a little foggy on AMD PSP but it's pretty similar to the IntelME. The ME (short for management engine) is a micro controller inside of the CPU. Firmware for the IntelME is stored in the same EEPROM chip as the BIOS firmware. The frontend of the ME is called AMT, which does a couple of other things too but mostly allows for configuration. The IntelME is officially advertised as a remote management tool. You can do stuff like update the OS or even the BIOS of a bunch of PCs in a closet somewhere and you don't have to touch a single one. The ME also runs below (or I should say independently) of the BIOS, bootloaders, and OS. Fantastic for large companies and frightening for home users. The ME has full system memory and TCP/IP stack access. It can control the CPU cores and I think it's safe to assume that it can also record keystrokes and circumvent your OS firewall. The ME can also send and receive network packets. Most models depend on an Intel wireless card to do this but IIRC some models don't. There's absolutely no reason why it should be present in consumer CPUs, as the average user has no uses for it. If you tried to plysically destroy the ME, your computer would shut off every 30 minutes because the ME manages the CPU cores and interacts with the hardware in such a way that it keeps the CPU cores running. Nobody outside of Intel fully understands how it works. It can now be neutralized with software called ME Cleaner that modifies the ME firmware. You need a Raspberry Pi 3, GPIO cables, and a clip to do it. It requires removing the motherboard of your PC. If you fuck it up, the computer will cease to function.
I was using a Thinkpad T400 for a really long time with Libreboot because I was able to disable the ME. ME Cleaner came out late last year. I've since switched to a Thinkpad T420 with an i5 that uses Coreboot as the BIOS and all is well.
What is LynxChan? LynxChan is a chan engine developed with performance, efficiency and flexibility in mind. It powers several chans ( http://lynxhub.com/lynxchan/res/285.html ) and contains a number of community-created front-ends ( https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan-ThirdPartyFrontEnds ). It offers a number of features, including: -File deduplication, saving bandwidth, disk space and allowing users to post files without uploading them. -Overboard, aggregating posts from the whole site on a single place so users can browse more easily. -Multi-board, allowing users to aggregate posts from only selected boards. -Extensive anti-spam and anti-flood tools that aim to both impede and reduce damage without inconveniencing users. -Add-on support, which enables features to be added without the need for a fork. -Modular front-end and language pack allows for the site owner to customize it without having to change the actual software.
LynxChan 1.8 main addition is multi-lingual support. This feature allows site owners to specify alternative language packs and front-ends and associate languages to them. When an user visits the site, the engine seamlessly picks an available language from the user and serves content in that language.
This version brings some other minor features so far: -More granular and specific verbose modes. -A terminal command to perform a clean shutdown of the engine.

In replyThread.js, if user presented valid bypass cookie or is not subject to captcha check, just store form data as thread reply, put your "post added" in response and do your redirect to thread. If user have to fill captcha ("banned" IP and no cookie), put form data in replyThread.js response page as another form that features captcha. Storing post temporarily in DB and presenting only captcha text plus hidden form field with reference to stored post is fine too. Is that simple enough to implement?

>>6351 Most web browsers (at least Webkit and Gecko based ones) use hardware acceleration for scrolling and rendering oddly enough. While you can still use them without hardware acceleration, it is far from ideal.
>>7908 MPD is nice because there are a few terminal frontends for it and you can use them to access MPD remotely (for a headless media server for instance). Personally I use VLC for most video things and only switch to MPV if VLC fails at something (which does happen from time to time).
As for image viewers, I have tried at least half a dozen of them for Linux and not a single one I have tried so far does everything well enough to be usable. Some still think its the early 2000's (when the relevant patents expired) and will not open animated gifs properly, and others will simply hang on extremely large images and/or use massive amounts of memory (not everyone has 16GB of ram to throw around). For some images I have no choice but to use a web browser of all things to look at them. My only hope is that one day Irfanview is ported to Linux so there is at least one image viewer worth a damn.
>>7908 >why are mplayer and mpv better then vlc? well, there are rendering options such as vdpau and vaapi but that's a pretty muddy area to draw comparison. There isn't really any difference for image or sound quality unless you are streaming, which is where vlc got its' bad reputation, mostly in the bad old days as a mozilla plugin.
>why is MPD better then, lets say, VLC, when it comes to music? this is purely an interface thing, nothing to do with sound quality. I personally use deadbeef for music and the interface, keymappings, ability to display track name on desktop and etc. make it more comfy as a music player. Options are also simpler and its' easier to configure than the options in vlc.
>If anyone can recommend any software for viewing images then that would be nice. I use the standard one that comes with mate "eye of mate" but to be fair, they are all pretty lame. There are no "advanced" image viewers.

does anyone know the archive.is operators? someone needs to tell them to remove the pointless captcha (I hear this can be done by unblocking the country T1 (tor) in cuckflare settings). they probably don't know it's enabled because they never visited their site through tor (or maybe they're morons and actually believe the captcha accomplishes anything more than blocking legitimate users, i don't know)
How difficult would it be to archive clearweb webpages onto an onion website?Zeronet? I2P? Not using archive.is or web.archive.org/save/ from tor rather making a tor-based clearweb archive? That would be ideal for the archival of information to diversify.It is a natural response to the increasing allowence to censor news based on subjective standards of credibility.
Server provider has almost doubled their price on us. They're now asking $115/mo instead of $66/mo. I'm of half a mind to tell them to fuck off but they are one of the few providers that protects free speech.
So I'll throw it out to our users, should we stay or should we go? If stay, we'll have to raise more donations. If leave, we'll have to find a provider that protects free speech. We may end up paying the same costs.
I'm communicating with them now to see if a slower/less expensive server is available.
Luckily, we'll have under January 1st until we have to pay the new bill, though if we want to move, we'll have to purchase something and do so before then.

The longest uptime ever recorded for an actively used server was on a FreeBSD machine that ran a NetWare server, which was up for 18.6 years before it was taken down when its hardware finally failed. Compare this to the longest uptime for a Linux machine: roughly 6 years See https://archive.is/sre09

>>8019 If I actually go through with this, it would be a good idea for people to identify me in the threads I make. Besides, the name is just anonymous with "sat" as a prefix.
>>8020 Even one satellite may prove to be enough. If it is geostationary, then it is fine, but the way I want it, it needs to be moving or it will crash into earth. I could have it moving around the earth so I can get great pictures of antarctica and the north pole which tend to be shit on google earth for some reason.
>>8021 I could put other devices onto it as well, and I am going to have multiple hard drives to see how they fare in space.
This is nice and sleek. I really enjoy this and so do the masses. This is a great browser because when you press escape it opens another window.It has a detailed list of privacy settings.You cant change anything but it lists what is out of your hands. It tells me who I am.I've got nothing to hide. The fake news blocker is crutial for staying informed. What more do you need? This is evolution. From text to symbolic icons.No more primitive text we are one step closer to the cosmos.

Google is the website that receives the largest amount of traffic in the world. By utilizing any service provided by Google, you are indirectly agreeing to their TOS and willingly giving your information to them, while also allowing them to do as the

Google has become too powerful, and evidence exists of them manipulating search results to push their own political agenda. This is a form of brainwashing as they could easily censor valuable information and news and could get content of their choice to the top of the list, and with the amount of people using Google, the results could be devastating.
We could fix this problem by convincing current Google users to switch services and educate them on how they are being used and how their information is at risk. However, with the amount of integration Google has made into other services and the fact that many electronics come preloaded with their website as the default search engine is going to be a large barrier in our way. If someone was willing to compile the information I have included here and created an infographic, it would be a great way to inform people and damage Google.
>>8012 Mapquest and bing maps come to mind. They even seem to work over tor most of the time, as opposed to google maps which just breaks and shit half the time. Also buying maps at the store and basic human instincts.
The famed Pioneer Cabin tree, known for its hollow center that allowed cars to pass through, collapsed during the intense storm that blasted California with heavy rain.
The giant sequoia was located in the Calaveras Big Trees State Park in Calaveras County, about 80 miles southeast of Sacramento.
The tree was a popular tourist site since the 1880s when a group of pioneers carved out the center. It became an iconic part of the state park. Until recently, cars were allowed to drive through.
Jim Allday, a park volunteer, found the collapsed tree on Sunday as a major storm barreled over central and northern California.
"When I went out there (Sunday afternoon), the trail was literally a river; the trail is washed out," Allday said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "I could see the tree on the ground. It looked like it was laying in a pond or lake with a river running through it."
The tree has shallow roots and its health has been deteriorating, Allday said.
According to the Calaveras Big Trees Association's Facebook page, "the storm was just too much" for the famed Sequoia, that was believed to be possibly more than 1,000 years old.
What's the best way to go about deleting old accounts on websites I no longer use? I don't want my info available if these websites get hacked. A lot of sites don't have the option to delete your account yourself. Should I email their support and ask them to delete my account? That will leave an email record if their email ever gets hacked. Should I just leave these sites alone and hope for the best?
>>6144 If you decide to delete an account that belongs to you on a website, know that the data that is linked to your account may still exist on the host's databases. It is a good idea to read the website's Terms Of Service to know what will happen when you use their services. On websites that allow you to delete your account with a few steps, you should delete all your data on the account and then delete the account without attempting to log into it again. If the website does not allow you to delete your account, then you should attempt to delete all the data linked with the account, change the password to a long string of random letters, numbers, and symbols, and never log in to the account again.
From this point forward, it is recommended that you should learn about the website hosting the services you plan to use and remembering that you should NOT upload your personal information onto the internet.
I couldn't delete my Stormfront account as well and mods refuse to do so. Just click on username, slam your keyboard, change your email to 10minutemail.net address, slam the keyboard in the url bar, copy it in password field and click save. Remove all unwanted posts if you can.
can u plz be a bit more transparent with the server hosting?
>SnakeDude pays the bills is nice but it does not give us much assurance endchan would stay alive the next day. since he is the sugar daddy of endchan he could just disappear next month and endchan is gone.
on elysium, they give a financial report where they say how much longer their world of warcraft servers are able to stay up based on donations:
u dont have to give the exact cost like they do because of bargaining reasons, but it would b nice if u could give an expiration estimate like "EndChan hosting set to expire on March 11 based on current funds."
I'll work on updating it. I haven't been because we have plenty of funding in the coffers and I committed to keep the server online until March with those funds. I haven't even really checked on the donations in a while.
>is nice but it does not give us much assurance endchan would stay alive the next day. since he is the sugar daddy of endchan he could just disappear next month and endchan is gone.
He is gone. That's why we set up the donations page. I also have back up resources that can be used. And you may have not be aware of the funding successfully until March part.
> it would b nice if u could give an expiration estimate like "EndChan hosting set to expire on March 11 based on current funds." You're right that should be put on the donations page. I'd really like to make the page dynamic in the future. So much on the todo list. We'll get there.
>>5665 I don't get it. I tried >>>/acount/ and >>>/accounts/ but they don't exist. Do I need an account on endchan to create a board? Why not just implement a button with a link on the index page, like 8ch does?
A few of my posts on other imageboards were strangely deleted for "breaking the rules", so I am afraid that they may be compromised.
But listen to this advice:
Unless you can fully Audit software yourself, you should assume that it is doing work behind your back. Many audits on the can be faked, and what is the chance that you will attempt to confirm that it is fake? 99% of people do not have the time or knowledge to audit something as large as a linux system.
If you are truly paranoid, you should drop computers completely or start coding your own programs.
>>7952 Dude, in future, lead with an image like that. It's really good.
The 8ch/tech mods are the same as here but it's much slower here so not as much gets deleted. They tend to be a little twitchy on the delete button because that's the way the BO wants it, and many agree they don't want another /g which slid badly under zero moderation for years on 4chan.
>>7983 >I could have picked on any program-handling program such as an assembler, a loader, or even hardware microcode.
Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck! That just fucking blew my mind! I am way more paranoid now. What if those that compiled my packages were compromised? No one would ever know. Damn.
Besides, what you go on to describe isn't shitty moderation, but a shitty userbase. And the userbase of every imageboard I'm aware of at the moment is fucking garbage. I suppose a moderator could delete posts by shitty users, but if they did that, the board would be left with nothing but a handful of posts I made months ago before I stopped coming here regularly. Unfortunately, there were only ever 2-3 good posters here. I was, by far, the best, and I'm not even that great.
As for your OP, what you're saying is mostly true, but it's not particularly interesting. Yes, you have to audit programs or write them yourself in order to trust that there's no malicious intent in them. But, as the poster who posted the pdf on the "Trusting Trust" attack points out, that's not enough. Here's where it gets even more fucked up: there is a mitigation for the "Trusting Trust" attack. It's called "diverse double compiling". You can look up the guy who came up with it for his Ph.D. dissertation. Name's Wheeler.
The thing is, it doesn't matter. So you know your compiler isn't compromised. Fine. What about the silicon you're running it on? Who audited that? Got an electron microscope and the semiconductor engineering chops to do it yourself?
You can stop using computers, personally, if you want. You're still in them. Unless you go up to the Canadian north and live a primitive, subsistence hunter-gatherer lifestyle, you're in the Black Iron Prison, baby.
Relax. WWIII is coming soon, then it'll all be over.
Insects develop efficient antimicrobial strategies to flourish in a bacterial world. It has long been proposed that native gut microbiota is an important component of host defense; however, the responsible species have rarely been isolated to elucidate the mechanism of action. Here we show that the dominant symbiotic bacterium Enterococcus mundtii associated with the generalist herbivore Spodoptera littoralis actively secretes a stable class IIa bacteriocin (mundticin KS) against invading bacteria, but not against other gut residents, facilitating the normal development of host gut microbiota. A mundticin-defective strain lost inhibitory activity. Furthermore, purified mundticin cures infected larvae. Thus, the constitutively produced antimicrobials by native extracellular symbionts create a significant chemical barrier inside limiting invader expansion. This unique property also benefits E. mundtii itself by providing a competitive advantage, contributing to its dominance within complex microbial settings and its prevalence across Lepidoptera, and probably promotes the long-term cooperative symbiosis between both parties.
I'll soon be moving into a new flat, and haven't gotten a contract with an ISP yet.
However, since it is still possible in my country to buy prepaid SIM-cards and reload them (~1$/GB) with cash, I'm contemplating just rolling with that and limiting my Internet consumption.
I would use it stationary, and the city I'm using it is densely populated, so there are many base stations. Wikipedia tells me that E-OTD could yield my position with an accuracy of 25m, even less if my modem cooperates using GPS/Wi-fi signals.
That's not quite safe enough, so I might use a VPN in Panama or somewhere that I'd pay for in Bitcoin, and configure an OpenWRT router to connect to it by UMTS.
Is there something I should look out for in order not to identify myself?
What kind of open hardware would you recommend for the router and modem?
>>7528 >However, since it is still possible in my country to buy prepaid SIM-cards and reload them (~1$/GB) with cash >still possible What would change to make it not be?
>>7536 >Just setup iptables on your computer and be done. OpenWRT is fine too, but I have no idea if it can run Tor daemon plus firewall out internet. Most routers you get from your ISP are absolutely horrible; you should firewall on both machines (with iptables, pf, or whatever), one is not a substitute for the other.
>>7528 If you are planning on going off the grid, then I would recommend investing in a automobile to live inside of and installing extra gas tanks with many spare parts to be self-reliant in the event of a breakdown. Many individuals attempt to go off the grid, but soon realize that they are helpless due to the fact that going off the grid with utilities in mind is going to require some prior knowledge and savviness.
Relatively empty countries such as Australia, Canada, Greenland, Norway, Etc. are your best bets for being left alone and avoiding a war.
When using electronics, use TOR at all times and never send personal information over your connection as TOR may have compromised nodes.
>>7528 This is way over kill and still very insecure. You would be better off hacking the wifi of a neighbour and possibly even using hidden repeaters or a big dish to cover the distance. Else, going the mobile communication network route with a vpn should be just fine. I believe you can use a usb data device in an asus router and tomato even supports routing all wan traffic over tor, although I would recommend the vpn instead as tor is slow.

Oh great, let's take Jabber, and shove it into HTML! Federated systems are great from a technical standpoint, and nerds like me will always use them just fine. But if we want encryption to actually move out of the hands of the massives after only nerds having it for 50 years then it needs to be on fully distributed systems. Dealing with servers and configuration does not make any sense to normal people. I've tried to get my friends to use Jabber but when the "app" is called Jitsi and the sign up form is at "hot-chili.net" and add account menu says "XMPP" and I tell them to add me at firstname.lastname@example.org then they get confused and give up. The app, the protocol, the website are all just one amorphous thing to tech illiterate people. Which is to say, everyone who is not us. Something like Tox is way better.
GRsecurity is preventing others from employing their rights under version 2 the GPL to redistribute (by threatening them with a non-renewal of a contract to recive this patch to the linux kernel.) (GRsecurity is a derivative work of the linux kernel (it is a patch))
And it is suggested to be the case here aswell: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/4gxdlh/after_15_years_of_research_grsecuritys_rap_is_here/ "Do you work for some company that pays for Grsecurity? If so then would you kindly excersise the rights given to you by GPL and send me a tarball of all the latest patches and releases?" -- lolidaisuki "sadly (for this case) no, i work in a human rights organization where we get the patches by a friendly and richer 3rd party of the same field. we made the compromise to that 3rd party to not distribute the patches outside and as we deal with some critical situations i cannot afford to compromise that even for the sake of gpl :/ the "dumber" version for unstable patches will make a big problem for several projects, i would keep an eye on them. this situation cannot be hold for a long time" -- disturbio
Is this not tortious interference, on grsecurity's (Brad Spengler) part, with the quazi-contractual relationship the sublicensee has with the original licensor?
>>4366 I think it would be a good idea for /tech/ to organize and a few get a monthly subscription. Then after a few cycles start releasing the patches, and if/when cut off these /tech/ users will have a case.
