AMD told us in their AMA on reddit yesterday that they'd consider Coreboot/Libreboot support. We should do something to let them know we're interested, because this would be a game changer.

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".

>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.

what the fuck. how can anyone be this stupid (assuming they're not a shill)?

captcha slider is meaningless. it is a concept made up to make customers feel good about themselves.

>I write user-friendly software with good UX
No, you missed the irony. UX is not a legitimate field. It's a term thrown around by charlatans to pretend user interface design is too hard for developers and needs professional people trained in CYBER-PSYCHOLOGICAL interaction and what not. Then it provides a set of doctrines about how to design user interfaces, and the result is completely retarded shit, such as your site. At this point I can't even remember what your site looked like because it was down every time this thread got bumped, but it was twitter tier buggy unusable slow garbage.

>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.
No you don't understand, your site was shit and hardly worked at all. See post on 8ch/tech:
>I had JS off initially, so clicking "SPEAK FREELY" would bring me to a page with a post form which silently fails. Going again with JS, if you look really hard (or I suppose smart phone users might notice it right away), there's a pencil button at the bottom right. But then it still silently fails. I even tried the .onion domain and same result.

>reCAPTCHA *is* easy for end users. Many just need to click on a check box.
Yes, users who use the same cookies and IP for months at a time. When you tie personal identity to every transaction you make on the internet, captcha is redundant. You do not need Google to implement such a trivial feature. 4chan had this feature a decade before the G.

We recommend that you don't use DuckDuckGo if you seek a search engine that values your privacy. There's no confirmed proof that DuckDuckGo is violating your privacy, but there are some very suspicious things, however, that make certain other search engines far superior in that regard.

Gabriel Weinberg, the founder of DuckDuckGo, used to run the Names Database. This was a website that aimed to connect people who had lost contact by gathering lots and lots of e-mail addresses. Getting access could be done by either paying money, or submitting lots of e-mail addresses of other people. Since the service revolved around gathering personal information, it is very suspicious for Gabriel Weinberg to start a business that is privacy-oriented.

DuckDuckGo used to set a tracking cookie, even though they claimed they didn't. This was done by a third party they cooperate with, which means that it wasn't necessarily intentional, but if it's unintentional, it shows a worrying lack of care.

DuckDuckGo is based in the US. This makes it really easy for the NSA to compromise it. If it were based in the EU, for example, the NSA wouldn't have the legal power to force them to log everything without telling anyone. This wouldn't guarantee privacy, but it would make it a lot more plausible. Instead, they're based in the US, which means that the NSA can do whatever they want with them. There are secure search engines that are not based in the US.

I have a whole free week on my hands and i want to make most of it by installing a fresh new distro. Since i value /tech/'s opinion, tought i'd ask you guys.

Been using Linux Mint fot a year, but now i want a distro that is clean and not full of software i don't need (like Mint is). Can't decide between Debian or Arch, help me maybe? I kinda have a life, so if Arch is really that high maintenance, it's out of the picture.

Sure, Linux has reasons to be larger while sticking to the same philosophy, but not to this extent. It's also much larger because it's so filled with features. Its size is also the result of its very different design philosophy. And I don't think that's a bad thing, but I do think that it invalidates arguments that are just "this one other part of the system doesn't follow the unix philosophy either, therefore it's shit".

Also Manjaro offers official OpenRC support and it's developed as a user-friendly distro while offering more or less the same power as archlinux. The core team clearly lacks an understanding in security, but it's the best we have that has the potential to grow as ubuntu/mint and "reach the masses"

After red hat fully takes control with systemd, there is no need for different distros, because basically they will be all the same but with a different logo.

This is the main reason why systemd is bad for linux.

I searched the blockchain when that happened but found nothing.

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 me@dukgo.com 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.
