daily reminder that palememe is shit Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:53:05 [Preview] No. 10151 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
browser randomly disappears but the process is still alive until you SIGKILL it. happened twice today within my 1 hour of browsing
view source pops up a window that freezes for 10 seconds, and the rest of palememe is frozen for that duration
webdev console also takes ages to open
when saving webms, they often get at 0%. if you cancel them, they remain stuck there, and when you restart the browser (even after clearing everything with ctrl+shift+del), they silently download in the background (they arent visible in the downloads list) and then give you a popup saying they're done, or they overwrite the completed version with a half finished version of the file, whatever the fuck palememe feels like today
firefug has all these problems too of course, except maybe the last one

if you open https://youtube.com/watch?v=NRSBKyz2Kvk [Embed] and see no <video> anywhere in the source, it's not going to work without JS or a plugin (which, if you're just being a smartass and stating that it works without JS because you have a plugin, ironically is probably written in JS)

pale moon is excellent
It has good addon support, active development, and most importantly is not firefox. Anyone who used firefox will want to blow their fucking brains out after having to use the abomination that is australis. I won't be surprised if women came up with the design.

Google has become too powerful, and evidence exists of them manipulating search results to push their own political agenda.[2] This is a form of brainwashing as they could easily censor valuable information and news and could get content of their choice to the top of the list, and with the amount of people using Google, the results could be devastating.

We could fix this problem by convincing current Google users to switch services and educate them on how they are being used and how their information is at risk. However, with the amount of integration Google has made into other services and the fact that many electronics come preloaded with their website as the default search engine is going to be a large barrier in our way. If someone was willing to compile the information I have included here and created an infographic, it would be a great way to inform people and damage Google.

Google needs a consumer minded president with teeth to enforce a breakup of the company. Split YouTube, Gmail, spreadsheets, Google search, Google Earth, etc, into separate companies.

I have no realistic way of going without some of their programs... there is no alternative to Google Earth, and all good search engines use Google.

4. Indeed, one’s personal audio selections – including music, radio broadcast,
Podcast, and lecture choices – provide an incredible amount of insight into his or her personality,
behavior, political views, and personal identity. In fact, numerous scientific studies show that
musical preferences reflect explicit characteristics such as age, personality, and values, and can
likely even be used to identify people with _autism spectrum_ conditions.1 And that’s just a small
sampling of what can be learned from one’s music preferences.

the tech sector WILL grow *if* it is not allowed to stagnate

Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:49:09 [Preview] No. 10129 del
The problem with the "tech industry" is exactly the same as what we see in music, film, games etc. Large corporations have taken a grip in the industries and are refusing to innovate. Stagnation in a monopoly is much easier for them to maintain dominance rather than be outperformed by a newcomer. Young innovations and new ideas are simply bought and buried before consumers gain knowledge of them. They are allowed to do this by the governments who, over decades, have given them such a monopoly that they are now too big to fail. If they were simply allowed to fail without being propped up, the U.S. and related governments fear it might destabilise their unbacked currency.

Win10 is just another step towards total control.

The only hope is that consumers have much more control over businesses than they do over the government. If consumers could rally to use their purchasing power to support real innovators, perhaps smaller independents then the entities that have us in their death grip could be felled.

Hunting down an OEM CPU Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:47:02 [Preview] No. 10117 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Basically, I am looking for the last best pre botnet AMD CPU, the FX-670K.

It's a Richland (piledriver) FM2 4 core 65W with the graphics disabled. Being a 4 core K at 65W should make it ideal for over clocking and extending the non botnet lifespan of a PC. The problem is it's OEM made for HP. It was released in the HP Pavilion 500 series in these models:

However, finding this chip or these machines seems to be near impossible post 2015. Ebay, Amazon, Gumtree and refurbished office equipment sites are all dead ends.

Where the hell would I find this thing?

Randomised spam Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:45:15 [Preview] No. 10106 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I was thinking we should brainstorm this. There are undoubtedly some very smart people here. No wrong answers, just brainstorm.

How can you stop the randomised spam. The text is random, the image is random and the link is random right down to the host.

Obviously a standard filter couldn't cut it, but what about a random filter, or even a smart filter.

Let's say we block posting all links not on a white list. We could also block posts using words not found in a dictionary. Naturally not being able to post without subject text solves the image problem.

In addition, I have tried following the spam links, mentioned in previous thread, but they don't lead anywhere. I cannot understand the motivation for these posts. If it was ad money then just filtering the links should solve it, but it doesn't seem to lead to ad sites or somewhere requiring registration. I get the impression the spam is generated by someone with the motivation purely of attack. In that case, why don't we see more spam, is our current filtering that good?

The spam never replies to any posts and they also namefag and have the email field filled. That is an identifier. So it is really an issue of quantity and if it starts replying.and You may have seen this with that one attack on 8chan with the bots posting nonsense. Markov isn't there yet.

If I actually go through with this, it would be a good idea for people to identify me in the threads I make. Besides, the name is just anonymous with "sat" as a prefix.

Even one satellite may prove to be enough. If it is geostationary, then it is fine, but the way I want it, it needs to be moving or it will crash into earth. I could have it moving around the earth so I can get great pictures of antarctica and the north pole which tend to be shit on google earth for some reason.

I could put other devices onto it as well, and I am going to have multiple hard drives to see how they fare in space.

I am triggered by your narcissism.
You need at least three for triangulation, the hard drives will waste power that you don't have on the satlilite.
If it was me I would at least make 24 small satellites in geostationary orbit. They will run on seL4 and transmit information to one centeral server to store the images.

>hard drives
Radiation might not cause bit flips down here but that's only because earth's magnetosphere shields us, on a satellite they are common enough that every thing NASA (and most likely other agencies) sends up is radiation hardened. Which in the context of CPUs means everything is done twice since radiation shielding isn't feasible.
>great pictures
Google Earth's pictures of Antarctica and the North Pole are shit because less than 1% of the population lives there. Your best option for satellite imagery is probably NASA's High-res imagery. (Bing and Mapbox apparently take "creative liberties" when it comes to the northern ice cap.)
