You can't get any decent discussion going on nntpchan without people accusing me of being CIA and wanting co compromise them. I know it's the local meme but it gets annoying.

BSD Thread.

Let's have a thread about the permissive, copyleft style of operating systems known as BSD.

Discussion of Free,Net,Open,Dragonfly,Edge *BSD is welcome!

Linux and FSF users who would rather complain about licencing and that linux is better need not apply.

What about hardened BSD on laptop?

Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:21:26 [Preview] No. 9971 del

it's still based on freebsd so suspend/resume and other quality of life features won't be available.

For daily driver OpenBSD laptops might be better.

Ain't that the truth, I have a really bulky HP laptop, great in specs wise, but once the wifi card started dying I bought one that had better OpenBSD compatibility only to have the HP bios firmware lock me out of installing it.

Fuck HP.

nntpchan does do that architecture too.
there is a segment of the network that is off in it's own island, we pull posts from them but they don't back.

Yes DIBOARD architecture are similar. But diboard was created becouse of bad code and lack of important architure solution for pull and push messages.
DIBOARD much more thoughtful than nntpchan.
>>we pull posts from them but they don't back.
DIBOARD and NNTPCHAN are open for passive reading with XOVER and ARTICLE command. For PULL AND PUSH in both directions you must exchange public keys and confirm connection.

Without meaning to be offensive, may I ask what your native language is? I feel like there is a barrier/limit to your explanation which makes it difficult to understand the intention and design choice of your project.
Perhaps if you post a description in your native language and we can better interpret you.

What is not clear?
Threre is NNTP protocol. Many years ago it was Usenet. Now it is ImageBoard. NNTPCHAN soft first.
And not DIBOARD perfect designed for accpet large files with minimal system requrements. Security, quality of code and anonymity.

DIBOARD and NNTPCHAN both use NNTP protocol and fully compatible.
NNTPCHAN use decentralized moderation.
DIBOARD use trust groups and captcha protection.

New Imageboard Concept in Early Planning Stages Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:02:46 [Preview] No. 9866 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
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

LynxChan 1.8 Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 22:52:17 [Preview] No. 9807 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
What is LynxChan?
LynxChan is a chan engine developed with performance, efficiency and flexibility in mind. It powers several chans ( http://lynxhub.com/lynxchan/res/285.html ) and contains a number of community-created front-ends ( https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan-ThirdPartyFrontEnds ).
It offers a number of features, including:
-File deduplication, saving bandwidth, disk space and allowing users to post files without uploading them.
-Overboard, aggregating posts from the whole site on a single place so users can browse more easily.
-Multi-board, allowing users to aggregate posts from only selected boards.
-Extensive anti-spam and anti-flood tools that aim to both impede and reduce damage without inconveniencing users.
-Add-on support, which enables features to be added without the need for a fork.
-Modular front-end and language pack allows for the site owner to customize it without having to change the actual software.

LynxChan 1.8 main addition is multi-lingual support.
This feature allows site owners to specify alternative language packs and front-ends and associate languages to them.
When an user visits the site, the engine seamlessly picks an available language from the user and serves content in that language.

This version brings some other minor features so far:
-More granular and specific verbose modes.
-A terminal command to perform a clean shutdown of the engine.

I'd give you a short ban, but the "Moderate Thread" link gives me the login page even if I'm already logged in, so I'll delete your post with a friendly request not to spam any more.

Please save me from this hell.

There are many good ways to prevent spamming in the way that I've been doing.

Let's say you did block excess repeating words, and I bypassed them by typing in random letters. How to block this? If your post contained random characters which which did not constitute words, block the post.

Getting server to look up every word against dictionary to block every post with typos, neologisms, proper nouns. Great thinking. Meanwhile spammer may just take same dictionary to concatenate random words. And markov chain bots, in case if you suggest extending checks. Don't fucking mess with user input.
