People have become tired, and having to move from website to website to escape spying and data collection fractures the community and kills motivation. I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of /tech/ jumped into a bunker that made itself visible for a little while and has been hiding out, but I am being optimistic.
The truth is, there are no large alternatives to 8chan, it was always the big brother to 4chan, and now that it is gone, it was the final nail in the head for many, and people just lost hope, and many of the bunkers didn't make themselves known for fear of shills and idiots coming onto them. Fucking /pol/ has been expanding its influence and has pretty much taken the websites it resides on hostage and disregards all other boards, it was a massive mistake to ever allow /pol/ to flourish. I personally am just tired, I am tired of imageboards, I am tired of the current state of the world, and I just am not as motivated anymore to hide, I pretty much have my computer at a great condition at the moment, and I just want to see this all end.
Every single day, I see communities die and be destroyed by invaders and hostile groups that desire their destruction. I blame fucking /pol/ for this, they brought the normalfags to the website, they completely corrupted memes to push their agenda, and they disregard everyone else on the website. /pol/ has been around for less than a decade, but when it came, many idiots jumped on as this new medium was promising to them, and they corrupted it.
Sorry for the rant, I just feel sad seeing such a great medium and board fade into obscurity.
Isolation is the saddest part of this honestly, 8/tech/ was very much full of LARPers who simply repeated knowledge that they picked up without actually applying it and consolidating their computers and data. Lainchan was wiped and that caused many of its users to be pissed and lose hope, and endchan has to deal with shills and /pol/ as always.
If any intelligent and competent anons from 8chan or this medium jumped into a somewhat populated bunker and are lurking on here to check up on the board, would you mind accepting me or other lost anons into the group? You know how this works:
Anons on 8chan lurk on 4chan every so often to check up on it
Endchanners check up on 8chan and occasionally 4chan to check up etc.
refugee from 4chan to 8chan to diaspora now i guess. i've been trying all of the chans i know but they have small userbases compared to 4chan and 8chan. i've heard good things about nntpchan but haven't tried it. and blazechan has innovative features.
8/tech/ users are 95%+ larpers who never code. i remember back 2014 - 2015 it was completely different. there were groups legitimately trying to help anons gitgud but nothing came of it.
it's sad and very frustrating the cycle of the chans.
>>10428 i used both /pol/ and /tech/ on 8chan. 2014 there were a lot of crossposters. but they coded and didn't use the board for shitposting. there was an effort to help interested anons on /pol/ gitgud with self-improvement threads. blame it on the mods when they started banning self-improvement threads they drove out core users leaving only idiots who spread to and degrade board quality on all boards. when new users come to /pol/ they see these idiots and learn to act like them.
8/prog/ maybe is still worth something.
we should start monthly library threads here (or, tri-monthly since the board is slow). work with a new library every month and compete to see who comes up with the best shit. 8/tech/ did this early 2015 and then it died out. but they were some of the threads i enjoyed most. we should restart it. be the change you want to see.
>>10439 Most people are in it for the memes, sadly, but he actually has interesting things to say. I talked with him a lot a few years ago when he still posted on /tech/ and /templeos/ and had a channel on Rizon. It's a problem with the "CIA niggers xd" people, not with Terry Davis per se.
I spend too much time pondering and editing my old memories and looking back into the past rather than creating and fostering new memories, and I believe that this problem is happening to many of you as well. It seems that content and activities that used to entertain us have stopped being entertaining, and the world has just become more shitty and boring. Before, these mediums were funny and people made posts with intelligence to back them up, and people didn't take the world seriously, life is too short to worry and deal with normalfag problems. /pol/ always loves to blame the jews, but I seriously am starting to ponder the possibility of a malicious group that is subverting all of the small and interesting communities and sending normalfags into a deeper trance, they don't need to think when they are told what to think and are fed endless piles of temporary pleasures and entertainment. I don't believe any anons believe how difficult it is to usurp control from each individual country and be able to manipulate and control many various events at once, but it is very much possible with some interesting technology...
If someone built a special machine that could change the very way people think... I have thought of and conceptualized technology such as this, and knowing that out there someone else has thought of it as well and has put it to use... They could take over the world with ease and control it by pressing a few keys on their laptop from the safety of their home.
Hie, I'm trying to find a good solution to never get out of storage on my HDDs, for my backups and my regular use.
What is your data storage solution?
I want, if possible, a solution that is the most freedom compliant.
There is the usb HDDs, 3/4 plugged on a rasp.
There is the NAS with 3.5' HDDs in it.
Maybe a cheap 20$ computer with the HDDs in it with linux installed...
What should be the best? What HDD to buy (there are these backdoors, even though I don't think I can find any without)
I just use external usb drives for "cold" data storage, but I have encrypted password files on floppies that get refreshed/replaced from time to time(multiple, for redundancy). I have an old pentium 3 era machine I will probably end up putting sata drives in (with IDE adapters of course) for intermediate storage so I dont have to worry too much about backdoored hardware.
Honestly I have never heard of backdoors in hard drives, but then again anything with firmware is vulnerable.
>>10459 Pretty much. It kind of kills the magic when you can watch some tryhards awkwardly backspacing and rewriting a ten character meme a dozen times. ฏ๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎ ฏ๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎ ฏ๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎ ฏ๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎ ฏ๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎ ฏ๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎ ฏ๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎ ฏ๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎ ฏ๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎
Live posting can be pretty good, in theory. Unfortunately the one's I've seen are full of avatarfags and blog posters. If you like tight knight communities with the occasional pretentious larper then you'll fit right in. Chanpink looked horrible and i doubt I'll find myself there again; if you asked me for an example of a consistently good anonymous image board, i wouldn't have any, live or not. Unfortunately.
Warning of the dangers of not taking action is a "naive argument" and makes me a "fool". Laches still exists (to limit equitable relief). Statutes of limitation still exist (to limit relief under law).
>>10416 I could ask, but his response won't be satisfying. It's the same as the mailing list and previous email. He clearly can't say you are wrong and I doubt he would admit to arrogance so his options are call you a fool without evidence again or not reply. Like I say, the fact he even gave you notice was impressive.
If he responds, it would be interesting to see if he tries to give examples. If there are any (and I doubt there are) they will be from the District of Colombia (DC likes to help the poor, especially in, say, landlord-tenant disputes, for instance), but they wouldn't be applicable to the Third Circuit where GRSecurity now resides, nor would they be applicable to middle-class programmers (who are not indigent), nor would they likely be applicable to plaintiffs bringing an action at all.
I was brainstorming the next step in bringing an action: one is supposed to think of all the little affirmative defenses an opponent might bring as-well as all the procedural hurdles they will place in your way.
Basically it seems that Bruce has publically libeled me in the worst way: questioning my professional abilities, and now since you investigated; we have evidence that he, indeed, did mean it the way we (and likely others on the debian user mailing list) took it.
I imagine that he would like to retract his article, since it was induced by a "fool", however if he were to do so that would impact his reputation, and, ofcourse, there would be a new slashdot, soylentnews, ycombinator (hacker news) story on the retraction.
I do not imagine, however, that he will pursue the GRSecurity case further. A "fool" used him as an implement and he would wish to go no further I would imagine.
Note: one can compare my write-ups on the GRSecurity situation and then his later article. You will see echos of my language. I certainly did.
Thanks for sending that mail. I would be interested to see if he responds again for a clarification.
>>10447 >It's probably not intended. Hope so...
>Is there a place where you can report shit like this ? I don't know, maybe FSF itself could help, since Github is meant to be FLOSS and it's violating the use others to access it's website.
>>10448 >Did you try another exit node? Yep, many.
cant post on 4jizz /g/ without having to use a non banned proxy or personal ip so ill ask this here.I and am having issues compiling. Is it usually a dependency thing or do you just make && sudo make install ?
>>10383 I recommend using --basedir to keep all data in a different location, so you can still easily use qutebrowser for casual browsing, and deleting the non-config dirs between sessions just in case. But I doubt Blink can't be told apart from Gecko, even with all those restrictions.
>>10364 Couldn't you use it for portable applications? That would make it safe for the host system like they are on windows. It could be used with something like this http://appimage.org/ which basically keeps the files in a mountable image like in apple dmg.
>>10373 I know you're just joking, but systemd actually makes the same security mechanisms this uses (namespace, cgroups) easily available for its services. You don't have to give your daemons unnecessary access to your filesystem, the network, etcetera. It's neat.
>>10375 You can even use nspawn to create full virtual userlands, that can be booted with their own /sbin/inits or have a single process run in them. It's like chroot on steroids, or Docker without the bureaucracy.
I've read Neuromancer and Little Brother, would recommend it to anyone here. Been wondering how's Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep, should i read it? I has been mentioned in Psycho Pass alongside Neuromancer.
I know this is a little off topic but when I read this, it struck me as very cyberpunk-esque so I thought I would share: "All unintellectual labour, all monotonous, dull labour, all labour that deals with dreadful things, and involves unpleasant conditions, must be done by machinery. Machinery must work for us in coal mines, and do all sanitary services, and be the stoker of steamers, and clean the streets, and run messages on wet days, and do anything that is tedious or distressing. At present machinery competes against man. Under proper conditions machinery will serve man. There is no doubt at all that this is the future of machinery, and just as trees grow while the country gentleman is asleep, so while Humanity will be amusing itself, or enjoying cultivated leisure – which, and not labour, is the aim of man – or making beautiful things, or reading beautiful things, or simply contemplating the world with admiration and delight, machinery will be doing all the necessary and unpleasant work. The fact is, that civilisation requires slaves. The Greeks were quite right there. Unless there are slaves to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work, culture and contemplation become almost impossible. Human slavery is wrong, insecure, and demoralising. On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine, the future of the world depends. And when scientific men are no longer called upon to go down to a depressing East End and distribute bad cocoa and worse blankets to starving people, they will have delightful leisure in which to devise wonderful and marvellous things for their own joy and the joy of everyone else. There will be great storages of force for every city, and for every house if required, and this force man will convert into heat, light, or motion, according to his needs." Oscar Wilde - 1891 The quote is from "The soul of man under socialism" and he talks about socialism but clearly describes that what is needed is individualism, an awakening of each and every man.
What the gay shit was called that early software design concept, that forms these looping patterns of pixels out of a rule algorithm? Something like there's an endless sequence of turns, and you paint a set of pixels, and every turn those pixels that are on turn off and pixels next to them turn on. Certain combinations end up canceling themselves out, so you end up bein able to create these intricate looping pixel waves that don't do shit but they are pretty neat. I think it's called 'a-somebody's game'.
One more step Please post in the cuckflare thread to access endchan.xyz/tech Why do I have to post about CUCKFLARE? Posting about CUCKFLARE proves you are a human and gives you temporary access to the web property. What can I do to prevent this in the future? If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware. If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices.

>>965 I can't help you with the memory usages of those OSes, but I would say that at one point, I got down to 60 mb on an x86 Debian GNU/Linux (before Ian died) with X and running openbox and urxvt. x64 is at least double that with a similar barebones setup (very little background resources) for some dumbfuck reason that I have no idea why. I'd blame the hardware first, kernel second, OS third, yourself fourth, and some crackers fifth. They really just don't make things the way they used to anymore
