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.

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.

New Imageboard Concept in Early Planning Stages Anonymous 03/07/2017 (Tue) 02:37:24 [Preview] No. 8160 [Reply]
PROMISEDCHAN (name liable to future change)
There is a new imageboard-software concept in the works. Addressing the problem of powerful moderating positions being compromised and shitting up the board against the will of board communities and their established board culture.
(See: 8/b/, 8/pol/, etc.)
>Nothing that isn't spam or illegal is deleted, ever. You can subscribe to different moderation teams (and bots) to have the shit filtered to your liking. There would be a default moderation team for each board but the default would change if the majority changed the moderators they subscribed to.

>To keep normies from freaking the fuck out a default profile of moderation subscriptions will be applied by default, the default moderation will be decided by an impartial algorithm that takes in to account the modoration most users in a board choose, weighting the chooses by activity.

Unfortunately there is a shortage of skilled /tech/anons who are willing to assist in the planning and development of this new imageboard concept, which is holding back development.

If you're interested in assisting in the development of this new imageboard concept, please go to

Weird spam Anonymous 03/18/2017 (Sat) 09:58:07 [Preview] No. 8200 [Reply]

Has anyone actually tried to follow these links other than me? It's fucking bizarre. It's very obvious spam links. I expected it would lead to a download with an exe, but it's always just more links. I guess they make money off the ads, but it all seems randomly generated by some sort of bot. It's not even a convincing trick that it should lead to something. What the fuck is this stuff and why is it posted here?

I don't think PGP itself can be compromised, since it's a process. His PGP key could be compromised. Only a CA can be compromised and there are several to choose from

You managed to cram a lot of retardation into a very short post. It's actually kind of impressive.

The following posts will describe each component in detail, starting with the USB powerbank.

There are several good reasons to use a USB powerbank to power the DIY laptop. One is that it integrates both the charge controller and power supply into the battery. Another is that it is cheap and easy to replace. The last is that it contains enough energy to power a laptop for several hours.

10000 mAh is sufficient for 2.5 hours of operation at 20 W, which is the maximum power drawn by a 10 W SBC, 10 W display and peripherals. 20000 mAh is sufficient for 5 hours, 40000 mAh for 10 hours and so on. If the average power use is closer to 10 W, the operation time is doubled.

Most powerbanks can provide the 5V 2A required by single board computers. A few more can provide another 5V 1A output, or even 5V 2A. This second output can be used to power a 5V 2A display.

For reference: Limefuel BLAST L150X 15000mAh 4x5V/2.1A (5V/4.2A max) w/passthrough ($35.99)

If one powerbank does not provide enough power, then multiple powerbanks can be used. One powerbank can be connected to the SBC, another to the display and so on. They can be charged simultaneously from a single USB cable by using a USB female to 2x micro USB male splitter, or USB Y cable.

Also choose a USB powerbank with passthrough charging. This feature allows recharging the powerbank while drawing power from it. This feature is needed to continue using the laptop while it is charging.

Charging USB powerbanks is very easy. USB AC adapters and USB cables are cheap and easy to find. Any USB port can be used for charging if needed. USB powerbanks are also very easy to charge off the grid by solar panel, handcrank generator or thermoelectric generator. Any source of 5V will charge a powerbank, even if only 100 mA.

The most important feature of a USB powerbank is that it can be charged separately from the laptop. This allows swapping discharged powerbanks for charged ones, which instantly recharges the DIY laptop. The discharged powerbank can then be recharged by any USB charger.

Display: 1x USB powered HDMI monitor

No computer actually needs a video display, as blind computer users demonstrate, but having one is much better than not.

The easiest and most reliable display for the DIY Modular Open Source Laptop would a USB powered portable HDMI monitor. This is the only option that is plug and play in both power and video cable, with no driver installation needed. Just connect the HDMI cable to the SBC and the USB cable to the 5V 2A USB powerbank.

For reference:
GAEMS M155 Performance Gaming Monitor 15.5" LED TN LCD, 1366 x 768 ($169.99)
GeChic 1503H 15.6" IPS 1080p Portable Monitor ($349.99)
GeChic 1002 10.1" Portable Touchscreen Monitor IPS 1280x800 ($245.99)
Elecrow HDMI Display Monitor 5 Inch 800x480 TFT ($38)

The next best option is a 12V portable LCD monitor. These are commonly available as security camera monitors, photography field monitors, portable TVs, LCD panels for SBCs. These will need either a 12V 1A power supply or 5V 3A to 12V 1A DC to DC converter ($5), both of which can be provided by USB Type C powerbanks. An HDMI to VGA or HDMI to AV converter ($5) may be needed if the monitor has no HDMI input.

Another option would be to use a LVDS controller board ($30) with a laptop LCD panel (>$70) and 5V 3A to 12V 1A DC to DC converter. This is the cheapest and most flexible option, but is significantly more complicated than the previous options and may need soldering.

The last option would be to make a DIY display. With enough soldering and programming, it could be possible to create seven segment character displays from LED arrays.
