LynxChan 1.9 is about to enter beta and introduces a very important feature: JIT caching.

JIT caching is caching pages once they are requested, instead of caching when their content is changed.

This feature should allow for not only a significant reduced CPU usage but also for a more responsive experience for users.

Other from that, this version will also add a few features:
File search on media management
Maintenance images
Ability to restart the unix socket from a GUI
Subject editing
Board locking
Better global board moderation
SSL can be made mandatory
Mass bans directly from ips

I have a small instance running it over http://lynxhub.com and a list of chans running it can be found at http://lynxhub.com/lynxchan/res/285.html

I have good news for you: I am improving the block bypass so front-end js will be able to check reliably beforehand if you have a block bypass and its status.

So not only it will be able to tell you if you have one, but also make sure you have one before uploading, even if is just enabled and not mandatory.

Microsoft certainly already share everything with the agencies.

All I see is that they maybe tried to hide their own backdoor, or maybe it's a CCleaner dev who tried to push his own malware in the back of his team.

Avast's antivirus was already malware. It will miss your actual virus email attachments but identify anything downloaded from a domain registered less than three months ago as a virus. Avast's logic is that if a domain is newly registered, then it must be distributing viruses. Avast does serve as an example of something that harms because it's worse than useless though.

Avalon (2001). It's a very powerful movie. Like Matrix, it questions the perceived reality created by human mind. But, unlike Matrix, it does not creates this new "reality". The author let's you imagine what it would be to live in a world more real than that we live now.
I personally don't think that's the case, but it's a good movie.
Like other film such as Truman Show, Inception and Matrix, this one will give you a shift about the way you think.

>Bullshit. The point is not if the leaders of these corporations have privacy or not, the point is that everyone lost the privacy.
>For me, this movie is a clear communist message.

The book ended with the main character too far gone in drinking the company kool-aid and she turned on the black guy, betrayed him, and supported censorship and ushering in a dystopia without resisting her leaders at the company. I see the film as a more morally grey ending. Her actions resulted in a kind of communist mob rule rather than a dictatorship, and after the film ends there's still a possibility people like her parents will rebel once they see the bullshit in the e-mails of her superiors. No such possibility exists in the book, because the monsters have already won.

You are a waste of flesh.

Anyway, I'll answer the question for you. No, although NSA Suite B cryptography is an NSA recommendation, the NSA did not have "a massive part" in developing the algorithms in it, as your fellow retard suggested re: RSA.

AES, for example, which is the recommended symmetric cipher in the suite, uses an algorithm called Rijndael, which was developed by two European cryptographers, Vincent Rijmen and Joan Daemen. Rijndael was submitted to the Advanced Encryption Standard contest (and won), which was sponsored by NIST, but it was not created by the NSA.

One thing that frustrates me about the trump train is that in the beginning, when he first announced he was running, there was a small minority of people who actually supported him without being part of the massive deluge of users that came near and after the election. Whether or not I agreed with them, it was actually cool to see that minority argue their case against the rest of the board. Now ask anyone who supports trump, and you'll be wading through memery and retarded arguments for months before you get to one of those original supporters; those who were for trump not for his flamboyant personality or just to be against "the system"

I don't believe any "smart phone" is or can be secure, but neither are regular flip phones either. Any phone can be hacked / intercepted.

However, considering we all do need to use phones today to communicate with people we know, I have chosen to buy a "jitterbug" which has no online service, it is a basic late 90s-style flip phone meant for elderly people or people with bad eyesight. Thus the big bulky numbers and mundane simplistic interface. Cover up the camera with electric tape and it's just like an original old-school cell phone.

The great thing about Jitterbugs is they really are cheap, you can get great service for just $20 per month. Saving you A LOT of money.

You must be lucky then, many people do need phones (family, friends, work, emergency if need be, etc). Not that I'm saying we need them all the time but occasionally we do.

That's how I keep in touch, since I refuse to use personalized social media. And in that case, a simple "Jitterbug" or "burner" phone works well, and those are really cheap. No internet needed, no apps. Just a bare basic cell phone interface.

And if you don't use a phone, how do you communicate with people you know other than relying on social media? Is there some secret tech out there I don't know about? Ham radios perhaps?

I don't use social media too (unless you consider imageboards social media). And my point in doing so is not just the privacy issues, but also because they control you with reinforcement mechanisms to keep you hooked to receive their stimulus (attention in case of normal people and advertising in case of corporations).
I want to be out of this, so I don't participate. If people want to contact me, send me an email. If they think it's too complicated to use email or think that I'm not as special for them to waste time with me, them they are not trully friendz and don't deserve my attention. It's a good filter.

Don't you guys really understand that with dumb flip-phone you have absolutely no privacy when doing calls and texting with other people. You should treat cellular network as another way of connecting to the Internet without wires. Yes, all hot-spots are controlled by one entity and can triangulate you, it's bad. Yes, the firmware is proprietary. But you can utilize the possibilities and connect to SIP bridge through VPN. Your carrier knows where you are and that you are using a VPN. Fine, lot's of people are using VPNs today, especially corporate employees. You don't make calls, most people use message apps today it's fine too, nothing suspicious. Your SIP provider sees you connecting through VPN, nothing interesting here.
You still can communicate privately with other people on IRC, via mail and messaging apps, lot's of free software choices here, you can call others with SIP and not be fingerprinted/profiled by your carrier. When you don't want to be connected and therefore tracked, you turn off the modem and done.

>What transaction isn't? Are you talking about conning people out of some pocket money, (((anon)))?

You can't have any anonymity if you don't have any way to make anonymous exchanges. You can do anonymous exchange right now, with paper money. Paper money allow "black" market, markets out of any state control. For exemple, you buying something for you friend is anonymous, and is de facto in the "black market". It allows anyone to work without the need of any contract.
It's the most basic need. With every transaction being traceable, you're done. You're just done. If they decide to deny you the right to possess a bank account, then you'll not being able to even buy from the most basic store. The whole economy will be controlled and monitored. But I guess that you trust your government and you bank to not do any arm against you, isn't it ((((((((anon))))))))?
Saying that it profits the criminals is monstrously retarded, since the biggest criminals are the banks, and the companies not paying taxes by using tax heavens. It's not the little faggot drug dealer. Moreover, since it's the state that control the drug traffic, don't count on the fact that they'll track them through bitcoin transaction. Police don't have enough people anyway to do this job. That's why it's actually the banks who try to detect credit card fraud (under ~1000/2000 euros), and not the police.

>The only thing that does is prevent hoarding and even more egregious speculation.
What? You're talking about monetary creation? That's the process that build paper money, that makes it remain on pure debt. The dollars paper money you have in your pocket is a debt upon the central bank. The money who's on your bank account is a debt on the bank. Nothing have any value, and it allows bank to create money out of nowhere. Well, not from nowhere, but from continuous inflation. Bitcoin will not solve anything. I pretty much think that it'll worsten the problem. I highly think that today's crypto will not be the future crypto used in global market (when the world will have only one global market). Maybe the blockchain will be private. Maybe they want a decentralised money to make it detached from any nation (since every nation will disapear, it's pretty logic) in apparence, but totaly controlled by the one setting it up.
The whole economy is immoral. Bitcoin will not, but confirm everything that has been destroyed since the founding of modernity.
You truly must be a redditor level faggot using his little mac to think that bictoin is a good thing. That's the same kind of guy who find it totaly normal to implant an RFID chip in their hand, or soon a neurolace.

"I" expected more of you. Don't tell me you're the common hn user, not risking to go in any direction that is not approved by the official good thinking institution.
About the RFID, no, I don't think that it's particulary what is reffered to be the mark of the beast. I think that it's nearly nothing, especially when you look at the neurolace, and what are the tech possibilities that would be available in the close future. Honestly, the private corps already know everything about everyone. All i'm saying is that it's a very very dark future that is being releaved as the days advance. And it's certainly technology which is the conductor. It's like always: a trade between yourself, a piece of your soul and your privacy, for more comfort, social acceptance etc..

Moreover, you haven't read my post to the end: I'm saying that the future crypto currency will be far more controlled than what it is now. Every bank are testing their own crypto.
Don't think that banks will diseapear with the founding of a global market based on an unique cryptocurrency.

Cryptocurrency does amaze me, I think it has potential (that is, *IF* continually allowed to).

However, I do see in the near future one of two things playing out on a global scale: either 1) governments will step in, intervene and take full control over it with new regulations and laws, thus undermining the whole freedom/anonymous concept ... OR 2) governments will just shut it all down, like they have begun to in China. And this will lead to arrests and raids if exchanges don't conform.

That being said, invest wisely and DO diversify! Do not hold all your eggs in one basket. Make sure you have plenty of basic essentials needed to survive stocked up (the prepper mindset), have some physical gold or silver coins to barter with, guns/ammo/mags won't hurt for self-defense (if you can get them), if you can buy some property away from a major city I highly recommend it if you are up to that line of work, make sure you minimize your debts too. Try to become as self-sufficient as possible.

We all know that governments are planning to steal our wealth via the banks. We need to be planning ahead of time, to mitigate how much they can steal. And it is possible but you have to diversify your investments and holdings. Don't just trust one entity to protect your wealth - it is mostly up to you. When SHTF you have what you can physically hold onto and that's pretty much it.

The best possible outcome is this ends in an extreme train wreck and Intel remove ME/vPro on desktop chips.

Less ideal is after said train wreck people create tools to easily disable this shit.

Worst case, it's only a partial train wreck and Intel dismiss the whole thing with marketing and PR bull shit about increasing security so it doesn't happen again and the majority go back to sucking Intel dick.

Your metaphor could be better defined but message received. To try and use your metaphor: The "cars" can only drive on the roads. I'm saying we become "cyclists" and get off the roads.

That said, the idea that we can keep our own little corner of the web clean, safe and free browser compliant (which I assume you are saying) is naive. For reasons stated here >>11213 the web and because of that in part the internet is now compromised as a safe platform. Even non web applications like IRC rely on domain name servers and the web to communicate the address to users. If the web does become hostile we can only hope it's at such a slow transition that we can easily adapt. Alternatively we can start discussing technologies now.

Banks, websites, governments, etc. could have been requiring DRM for years in order to access and interact with their content. Flash and Silverlight make DRM possible. EME has been implemented in various browsers for years, and in all major browsers since 2016. Every single site on the web could have required users to use DRM to access their content for years now.

Yet they haven't, and have no reason to do so for most content. Again, you do not understand what DRM is, apparently.

Were you freaking out about your bank potentially requiring DRM 7 years ago, even though they could have done so at any time? No. Because you have no fucking idea what you're talking about.

You're freaking out about it now, because you read about the W3C recommendation a couple days ago on reddit and now, all of a sudden, you think the sky's falling.

I use XP Pro 32 bit as a daily driver (gaming mostly) and I optimized it somewhat to get 167MB used at boot. On a normal system with less optimization would be ~180MB used. After a few days of use it sits around 250MB, largely due to caching.

My Debian stable (Jessie) 32bit file server only uses around 55MB idle (no x, just ftp). My desktop machine before it died ran Devuan testing 32 bit which used around 80MB at boot without X running. I only used icewm on it though. I could get it lower by compiling my own kernel, but not really worth the hassle.

The main problem with Linux nowadays is when you install large DE's like KDE/Gnome/whatever you end up with a bunch of unnecessary desktop related services installed even with X stopped. 64bit should add some memory usage, but not the large numbers I am seeing.

Unfortunately my FreeDOS rig is down at the moment otherwise I would get you memory figures from it. Memory usage with networking would be troublesome though due to pretty much every packet driver using different amounts of memory depending on how good the NIC vendor is about optimization. I have seen some packet drivers using less than 20K, but others nearly 80K, and thats just the hardware I have laying around. As for running a GUI on such a system, OpenGem would be what I would test with (pic related), but Arachne while ultimately just a web browser lets you do many filesystem functions with it.

I had Win2000 for years but I cannot recall the memory usage from it offhand. I just remember I was able to get it to run on a machine with 32MB of ram without drastic performance issues at one point. I think the numbers were comparable to my stripped down XP install though.

At least for a start, it would probably be helpful to know the minimum requirements of 95/98/ME until someone comes up with hard figures.
95: 386DX with 4MB (8MB recommended) ram
98: 486DX/66Mhz (Pentium recommended), 16MB ram (24 recommended)
ME: Pentium 150Mhz (Pentium II 350Mhz recommended), 32MB ram (64MB recommended)

From personal experience, 95 and 98 benefited greatly from 512MB of ram if you had it. 98 (not sure about 95 but i'd assume so) needs a patch to see more than 1GB. WinME on the other hand really needed 1GB+ before it was happy, otherwise you could expect frequent bsod's.

>why the hell does Linux need 150MB to start up and release a console to me?

"Linux" doesn't. Parabola does. Maybe Parabola sucks. I dunno. I just checked my Slackware installation:

Without X: 54 MiB
With X & a lightweight window manager: 83 MiB

It could be lower, too, but I am running a number of daemons like ntpd and sshd, and I recompiled those that don't come compiled with hardening flags by default. Usually, that means they take more memory. The tradeoff is better security.

I trust FreeDOS more than I trust GNU/Linux. Get your system back up and running. I used to run this on a Pentium III system but it corupted the file system twice in a row after copying some files into the games directory. I Wiped and reinstalled, and tried it again same result. So I stopped using it, and started using MS DOS instead. But that aside I think that FreeDOS and OpenGEM have a real future. I think that FreeDOS should be an important part of the private computing future. They just need to port a heavy duty file encryption program to the base system and I'm sure gpg is already ported. When you get your system back up please post the memory usage results. Thanks!

I've been off of the ball for a while though. For instance I noticed recently that xtrac-ytpl.sh has stopped working. I'll look at this next weekend, but I've got homework up the wazoo.

I strongly believe that binary package based distributions are not the way to go for security. You're trusting the packager or the packaging team not to insert their own backdoor or malware, and you have no way to check if that has happened. Everything running on a secure computer has to have been compiled from source that is resident on your computer. That way if you suspect that something is wrong, you can at least check. I don't have the time or the expertise to do this but there are enough computer security experts out there that will, and will hopefully raise a red flag in a blog post, or in an article, or publicize it in a bug tracker. Right now, by using parabola (debian, ubuntu,mint,fedora,etc) , I'm trusting the packager that they don't work for an Intelligence agency of some small European country, or for a hacking team operating out of Russia. If they get caught (unlikely) they can just change their fake name and move on to the next distribution of linux (if they're not already doing it to the packages there as well).

I generally fell off of the wagon when I realized that my computer hardware and operating system were a major point of unreliability, and the probable source of my leak and privacy issues.

Binary package based distributions are a good place to start for someone learning to use GNU/Linux, but they're not the place to be for secure / private systems. Those are just my opinions, I'm not an expert in computer security, but by talking about it we'll get to the bottom of this eventually.

So why don't you, like fucking everyone since the night of times, purpose a paid subscription?
You know what internet is like? A free to play. First to make it extremly accessible, while taking money from the customer who don't even know they's one. It's a shit economical system, based on ignorance.
People still think that google, facebook is free. Just ask anyone how they win billions and are at the top of tech industry, most people will not even be able to answer (or something vague like "ads?").

We need to stop with this. "If it's free, then you're the product."
All I see is that a lot of people actually started their blog for fun, to share with people, then they discovered that they could make a shit tone of money on it, so greed came on, and they try to only live on that. That's not how reality works. You can't live only on your shit little blog, or on a little youtube video. Just look at how newspaper use to work in the past. It's the same thing. It's not because I share some good inside with peoples that I'm gonna create an entire newpaper on this idea, and only live on that.
I need something serious. A team of writers, a shit tone of work, talent. Not just random internet luck of fame.

That's the root of the problem. Too easy for random people to get too much money. Just look who're at the top of youtube, or other medias. That's ridiculous. It's certainly, certainly not a meritocracy. Even the top youtuber agree with that, that they're were they are with only luck, and that people with less success have more talent than them.

I don't think it's an internet issue, I think it's an human issues. Nikola Tesla, Kurt Godel and many others, died poor and fucked, for example, before the internet existed.

GNU is a complete meme. Some software is meant to be proprietary. Without it, we loose our jobs.

It's a problem of economical model, and government that push for free market, but without doing its job to eliminate monopolies.
You should actually get back in time, and understand that everything was sold with the "source code". You washer was sold with the manual describing everything about it, every pieces used with reference to allow you to repare you machine.
Today, everything is made breakable, and the most complicated to not allow you to do any repair, any modification.
Even though software is a special case, because you NEED the source code if you want any security, but you don't want to easely give out your source code to every one, it pretty much followed the same path. Basically, anything closed source is backdoored from my point of view. I'm not even talking about the official stuff, like microsoft who gently tell you that it tapes everything. Or apple that trace everyone's move.

A mechanical system can't be close source, because you still can "easely" reverse engineer the process by simply opening your car, if you know what you're doing.

So no, it's not that black and white. If you have a bullshit job, it's the problem of an economical model based only on an all mighty market, and not a market serving the actual people.
Free market without regulation create this kind of none sense, because the goal of any companies if not to serve any general interest, but egoist profit.

You're not the only one who have a partly immoral job, it's pretty much general. So please, don't say that we need close source because you need a job. That's in no where a justification. A lot of industries had to close their door, letting the workers without any job because of technological progress.

There was no atheism debate. There was an altruism discussion (calling it a debate is too generous and doesn't accurately reflect your inability to construct logical (or even coherent) statements) which you repeatedly tried (and failed) to turn into a discussion about atheism.

Universal Plug and Play UPnP is a bad idea. If you get malware they can own your network. Open the ports that you want open and only those ports and protocols, block everything else. The first line in your firewall chain on you router should be:
BLOCK ALL INCOMING
BLOCK ALL OUTGOING.
What ever way that is set up according to your router.
Then slowly open things up, starting with DNS, then HTTP, HTTPS, then whatever other ports and protocols you need. This will take more time but it will give you more control.

NAT Network Address Translation. This should be OK to turn on.

UPnP No, NAT OK.

Those are my thoughts on it. I'm not an expert. Open only what you need and don't let your software on your OS control your router at will, set it up yourself.

With i2p isn't there an ip you can plug in like with tor (socks5 127.0.0.1:9050) I think port 4444?? If so then you can add i2p to the mix. I think it called an out-proxy. You can also use this to run i2pd with proxychains i2pd.I have found this proxychains setup useful because running i2pd with torsocks doesn't work.

If it's not going to have js, why bother with a new browser at all? links2, lynx, Dillo, etc. already exist.

>links2, lynx, Dillo, etc. already exist.
links2 doesn't render all css
lynx is only for term, no images
I don't even remember what was wrong with dillo but there's no point in using it is there ?

>links2 doesn't render all css
That's not the problem with links2. CSS is cancer.
The problems with links2 is that it has not preventive security measures by default, such as privsep, sandbox, etc.
It also could adhoc with youtube-dl and an external player, so we could directly play media.
Another problem is keybinding. There's none.

If someone address that problems in links2 (and clean the messy code, obviously), that would be a fantastic browser.
I had this project myself (although I would reconstruct it in a dependent-type language or Lambda-Prolog), but I'm too immature to do it (yet).

Why not Ring, it was recently endorsed as an official GNU Project

Also Ring is god tier, not even joking, but Slack is kill. Riot just have to get the same level of attention or to get a big community

Advanced users of GNU/Linux (and I mean advanced), remember to try Source Mage GNU/Linux. True source-based distribution, and (in contrast with Gentoo and Arch) is:
Free from obfuscated and pre-configured code.
Fully committed to GPL, uses only free software (as in freedom) in their main package.
With even the documentation licensed as FDL.
Without 3rd party patches, sensible defaults or masked packages.
Doesn't need obfuscated python libraries, only bash.
No systemd (they've implemented their own init scripts system http://sourcemage.org/Init).
Uses clean dependencies as they came from upstream developers, which by the same provides instant updates.
Can heal broken installs.
Can also use flags.

Do you like Arch Linux's AUR? Do you like Gentoo's portage (or ports-like) package manager? With SMGL's "sorcery" you get all that. Making new spells (package build files) not found in the grimoire (repository of spells) is easy http://sourcemage.org/Spell/Book

Bash hackers welcome! Come and join http://sourcemage.org/

Installing SMGL is easy, here's the simplified process:

I don't see the problem with this, it could end up being promising software if it actually stayed true to the developer's promises and had a proper audit.

No, I am not the OP or a shill working for them.

It's just the metaphor they base their brand of GNU/Autism around.

They do seem a bit further onto the spectrum than the average GNUtard, though.

I've been trying for the past week to figure it out, but I'm stumped. The chroot stable image, which is already immensely outdated, is missing features that it requires like a built-in bootloader and zsh, for which chroot calls for but does not supply in /mnt/usr/bin/bash.

I'm stuck with going through chroot with /bin/bash, because installing zsh with dependencies is a PITA. But vital steps like initliazing the bootloader (grub or lilo) are absolutely impossible. A full chroot find for either lilo or grub utils returns only empty files.
