Windows 7 pleb here, how do I reduce the amount of data that gets cached in my ram? Currently I'm using 4gigs of ram and have 4 gigs of data cached, with about 100-50mb free.

Anonymous 07/08/2017 (Sat) 19:45:43 [Preview] No. 8878 del
What do you mean by cache? You mean RAM usage? If it's that, the software you're using is consuming too much RAM, try alternatives. For browser, try Firefox with uBlock. For torrent, try Deluge. Music, Clementine. Etc.
You can also remove the windows animation effects. Write on google about "win7 god mode", it'll give you access to all configs, tune it for "performance", there's many options.
Also, press Win+R and type "msconfig". There you can choose programs that start at boot. Disable as much as you can.
You can also use BleachBit to wipe some shit.
Increase your swap:

This script also could help:

I would suggest to you that remove Tor-mirror and save i2p. That will get rid of the spam because unconfigurated (tunnels) i2p is unstable and slow so you can not spam with it.

From undleadly:

"on recent OpenBSD snapshots we have KARL, which means that the kernel is relinked so each boot comes with a new kernel where all .o files are linked in random order and with random offsets."

"To ensure this security feature works great in the 6.2 release, please test snapshots. By working well, I mean it should work invisibly, without any glitch such as a broken kernel or anything. If there are ugly glitches we would like to know before the release"

Anyone here using omemo on a daily basis on desktop ? What clients are you using and what are your experiences ? I'm thinking of dropping tox since I need offline messages and no scripting a workaround with tox is not what I want.

Anonymous 07/03/2017 (Mon) 19:50:49 [Preview] No. 8830 del
Never tried because I've never found a good client and also:
Ricochet works for me... no offline messages, though. Maybe Pond or Bitmessage would be a good idea for you OP.

pond is kinda dead isn't it ? And I'm looking for something that has a nice cli.

I don't think Omemo has a cli client yet...
Maybe irssi + OTR + Tor would be your best choice for security, but it's not userfriendly, you'll not get your friends to use it.

Ricochet has a CLI (not official and probably insecure):

can't download files to disk from sankakucomplex Anonymous 06/12/2017 (Mon) 17:08:17 [Preview] No. 8550 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Kind /tech/nologists

A week or so ago I can't download images with the Tor Browser from sankakucomplex.

How is this even possible?

I can load the full size image in my browser, so it is in the memory, but when I try to download it to disk, it just creates a ~5.5kB broken file. Is this some new Firefox browser feature? How can the server owner have the right what I do with data that's already in my RAM? Is this some kind of new DRM? Please enlighten me. You can be as technical as you want to be, I'm a gentooman, I'm just not up to date about browser technology.

I await your answers with interest and a held beck REE if my worst fears prove to be right.

p.s.: on a second thought is this a Cloudlare-wide thing?

p.s.2: I can still download images from other Cloudflared sites like 4chan, 8ch

Linus Torvalds: Free Software Foundation "insane crazy people" Anonymous 09/05/2016 (Mon) 01:53:19 [Preview] No. 6644 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

We all knew it. Now Linus said it.

In a mailing list discussion about GPL enforcement, Torvalds touches on the pitfalls of involving lawyers in GPL disputes and argues for the superiority of the open source approach, stating: "the people who have created open source and made it a success have been the developers doing work - and the companies that we could get involved by showing that we are not all insane crazy people like the FSF."

Thoughts? Butthurt?

>Whoever uses GPL is essentially delegating their rights to FSF for more systematic enforcement (that is, monetary backup incase you want to sue someone for not giving back the code).

This is not true, merely using the GPL does not give the FSF any rights over your code, or what anyone does with it. It's only if your programme becomes part of GNU that they request you delegate rights.

>All he wants is a way to make the Linux kernel proprietary
He just wants to stick with the GPLv2 because of feuds with some free software people (and not even the FSF staff).
When tivoization appeared people proposed a new draft of the GPL (v3) the license wasn't even a year old draft and Torvalds read it and immediately removed the + of the GPLv2 license that was at that time the license (most of the drivers are still GPLv2+ tho).
What happened are actually linux kernel developers who protested to Torvalds.
Torvalds told them to BTFO because the "draft" GPLv3 license was horrible.
And shit discussions stacked itself for at least two or three weeks until we got the actual State of things where Torvalds don't want to talk about or with free software people.

But he's right about one thing the two or three SJWs in the FSF are crazy and should be impeached for the shit they might steer.

nah he's just a stubborn idiot guy who holds a decade old grudge because of a draft license.

You expect people to READ? Are you fucking crazy? Reading is the new latin. Plebs want everything video. 20 minutes or less, preferably.

Anyway, even if you know latin I recommend watching some Eben Moglen. He's one of the primary lawyers behind GPLv3 and explains it and the whole commercial software, software freedom and copyleft very well

Linus is right. It's stupid to waste so much time on license political shit. It's not only a distraction but outright demoralizing. One reason (but not the only one) I left Debian for OpenBSD is that the mailing list is actually focussed on technical stuff, and not so much political garbage. Politics attracts the worst class of people, the ones with an agenda to push and the brainwashed useful idiots. In OpenBSD they don't get any traction, they will be told to fuck off unless they have actual solid code or other real contribution.

Open source goes back a lot farther than FSF. In the 70's there was an organization called People's Computer Company that started publishing free (PD) software in source code form. They're the same ones who are responsible for Dr. Dobb's Journal, the longest-running most technical journal in the history of computing, with lots of free code for anyone to use as they wish.
