Is Signal a threat to Free Software? Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 19:49:01 [Preview] No. 8917 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

My opinion: the guy from LibreSignal was using the Signal servers, consuming their energy, and using their marketing. This is not right.
About the Signal requirement to have google shit, it's very unfortunate. Though, people should just use other thing and stop all this buzz.

They keep adevertising that end to end encryption but there's like one client that has it and that's the web/electron based on. The rest are useless, and as someone already mentioned in this thread it's not really federated at the moment.

>the problem with tox is that anonymity was just an after thought
You're right on that. Tox was initiated on /g/ shortly after Snowden disclosures. It was made to be foss, distributed (so no servers are used) and provide strong encryption but anonymity hadn't been thought. It was added sometime after the project begun though. https://github.com/irungentoo/toxcore/blob/522f90fee138087db660dccc08413c53f388f604/docs/Prevent_Tracking.txt

If he posted this in 2004 that would actually make Mr. Michael McAllister 27 years old at the current time.
The average age for passing the bar is 27 and the pass rate is 66% in New York State.
Based on that I highly doubt that he's passed the bar exam. You're looking for a Law Student approximately 27-31 years of age, a white male. He might be attending Columbia Law School. Here are some other possible options:

its the chan cycle like kali yuga.

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.

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.

we used to do threads where we'd focus on using 1 new library a month. for example, sfml or libpng or zlib. 1 month seems to short it'd be better as 2 - 3 months.

there's always the issue of good content vs active posters. IMO the reason why a lot of boards decline in quality is that a certain amount of activity is needed for people to be engaged and without engaged posters a board is easily taken over. A high quality board can die due to lack of content and then easily have its skin worn by nu poasters

Poettering (a Red Hat employee) is not the source of the problem in the modern Linux ecosystem. Red Hat is the problem. Red Hat has almost complete control over freedesktop.org (xorg, DRI, cairo, mesa, wayland, systemd, dbus, PulseAudio, Gstreamer, xft) and GNOME (this includes all its applications and GTK+) and has a massive influence over the Linux Foundation and many GNU projects. Red Hat is a for-profit corporation so any action they take will only be for their own benefit and NOT yours. Regardless of whether their software is "FOSS" or not, they've slowly been redesigning the core design of Linux so that they could restrict your usage of it to their products, making you dependent on them. GNU/Linux should be renamed Red Hat OS, as it's essentially impossible to escape their tentacles on it.

HELP with drivers Anonymous 07/28/2017 (Fri) 06:01:30 [Preview] No. 10495 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hi Windows users.
Has anyone managed to install Nvidia Quadro drivers on a GTX board? Both uses the same processors, the only difference are on the drivers, but Quadro costs much more because of that. I'd want to try those, because I need more performance on video edditing softwares and I don't play games.
I did a basic search, found some tips[1], but I thought it would be better to ask on imageboards, because the autistic people from here are (generally) smart on those topics...
Also, if you have any advice on configurations for better performance, I would like to hear that (I'll try to install Windows Server instead of Win7, just to see if memory consumption drops, since Win7 has a lot of bloatware shit).

P.S: Yes, I need Windows for this, can't run all the software on Wine yet. Looking to switch my workflow to Flowblade instead of Premiere Pro, but I can't do After Effects animations on any open source software (Blender or Natron could do it, but I'd need to learn them and I don't have enough time now).

>I don't know how to program this thing, but I don't think it's complex

So you want a neural network to datamine sporadic personal information and output potential password choices. Ill assume it would learn from correct responses to correlate certain data with potential passwords. For instance those with an age over 50 have shorter passwords often using the name of a pet or child. It would probably need to scrape that data from social media because that's a lot to input by hand not to mention the frequency of posting, who they interact with most and common language used in posts are all also valuable data.

Yeah, doesn't sound too hard, give me half an hour and I will write a python script for that.

Even though you're ironic, I'll keep my position, it doesn't sound too complex for me.
The information could be dragged from a site like Intelius Premier. It would be much more efficient than simple dictionary attacks. Even if it's not ANN-based, a statistical model would be better than the actual dict. attack.

Hey techies, my idiot friend and I want to make a simple game.

What are some nice language choices for us? Bare in mind we are both fairly retarded with little interest in programming and no intention of becoming good.

Not so interested in "game engines" as that seems like learning something more than we need.

Python and Gambas look good.
