So there's a NNTP chan.
How do you connect to read & post with a standard NNTP client, like Tin, Pine, slrn, etc.?

The only negative I see is that it's written in asm. Not many are going to be able to debug or even review the code for hidden "features."

I could not register. Anyway, ssh being able to disclose stuff like client ciphers and version, terminal options including size, "anonymous" user's PUBLIC KEY or connect username are bad things for anonymous messaging.

Any alternative? We did some research here in the past (see >>10507 ), but we could only find Ricochet (weak cyphers), Briar (still in beta and don't seem have desktop support yet, just mobile) and Jitsi (weak for instant messaging, but uses ZRTP for video). Other clients have good security but bad sides, such as Signal (require phone number) and others.
The more "advanced" solutions (irssi + OMEMO or OTR) is too complicated for normies to set up, so it's not actually usable outside of our imageboard leet culture.
I still think that Briar is good, but laks some vulnerability mitigation that Signal Protocol employ today. A version of Signal that reduces to the maximum the metadata and has a command optional command line interface would be the ideal, but this solution doesn't seem to be done as of today.

Modernized $CRT/$ Terminal Anonymous 12/01/2017 (Fri) 11:15:36 [Preview] No. 11825 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Has anyone here used a monochrome phosphor CRT with a modern machine? Say, a monitor with a 9-pin serial/re9/rs232 cable with a more modern PC. Also, this will just be a terminal screen. Possibly with w3m images. Here are some options I've thought up. I haven't picked out a monitor yet.

VGA/serial adaptor
These adapters are common. Don't know if they would work.
CGA video card output or other period correct, oem matched card
Don't know how the fuck I would use this on a modern board.
Some other 9 pin display video output
''Maybe there is an old PC with Core Duo or Pentium with serial display? I was born in '96, so I'm not too savvy on 20 year old graphics hardware'

I know that the green Macintosh CRT's are pretty cheap and use a 9-pin, but the pin out is proprietary. Chime in if you have experience with these things! Am I over thinking this?

They tend to have smoother/cleaner looking images projected onto the screen due to the fact that they use an electron gun to illuminate a phosphorous coating towards the front of the tube instead of electronic pixels which can be clearly distinguished if one places their face closely to the screen. Of course, cathode ray tubes would not be ideal in other applications due to their high rate of energy consumption and radiation output.

I personally like them, you can fix it yourself with some electronic engineering knowledge and the proper tools, and they are interesting to use.

Anonymous 12/01/2017 (Fri) 15:28:56 [Preview] No.11829 del
You could always use an old machine as a serial terminal to a Linux box. Serial-to-USB adapters also exist, which would make it a bit more accessible hardware-wise. You would lose the benefits of UTF-8 but probably far easier than nigger rigging a pre-vga monitor to a modern machine. You could even set up your own dial-up interface if you are brave.

Personally I have an old Pentium 1 era machine with an old CRT (has ISA slots so I could feasibly do monochrome/cga if I had the card + monitor) running FreeDOS for something like that. It uses 10base ethernet and Telnet to a 15+ year old headless Linux box though because I am lazy and have the hardware laying around. I mostly use it for writing since I really like the capacitive switch AT keyboard I have for it. A friend of mine does the same with a 486 and a raspi.

I'm really liking the DEC terminals. The VT520 is still being made by Boundless. Think I'll just drop a little extra money for the 520. I have an Rpi2b. FreeBSD works with all the hardware before rpi3. I'm running OpenBSD (I know, de raadt is giant dickhead) on a librebooted x60, so this terminal is mainly for kicks. Plus I don't think I've actually seen mono in person. I remember seeing color terminals in the library as a little kid, but never mono.

Anyone else excited about the coming full realisation of the GNU OS? Soon GuixSD will ship with Hurd and the original GNU vision will be a usable system.

After that all they need is all the software using GNU licenses and RMS can die fulfilled. If they then rewrite everything in scheme RMS will become a saint in heaven.

Hey /tech/, I've updated the list. Many changes (I did no changelog, sorry):

Any comments are welcome.
Let's wait for "Endwall" to update. If you want to spread it to other communities, please post it here too, so we can keep following the criticism and improving it.

As for the other thread ( >>11660 ), I'll share my 'research' (nothing big, really) on this thread, but there's too many information to put on the list, so I thought it would be better to just discuss it here first.

Reasons its shit:

1) IP logging
2) Posts are forever
3) Avatar fagging
4) If you change your IP it demands a phone number or you can't use the same username again if you registered.
5) Full of status messages: I'm paying fallout 4
5) It's catching on with faggots and now every chan and forum wants you to join their discord for that board. Irc didn't ever have 1-4 and wasn't as popular as discord is becoming.

Web 3.0 really will be a fucking chat room on every site.

There is already a thread about discord. I don't know why it bothers you so much if discord exists, just don't use it. Based on what I've seen so far most people who use it, are your average gamers talking like "omg memes kek dude lmao". On IRC there is at least some sort of discussion going on, but even there I can sense the presence of neo-/pol/-meme crap. Last day I joined #electronics on freenode and what did I get? Some dude talking about socialists. I don't know if I'm going insane, but people are talking about politics a lot more than in the past. Last US election had a really big impact on the internet, it changed people in a bad way.

IM is not great for everything, there are some genuine uses for it, but it's mostly shitposting. You need to take some time to write a meaningful post, think about the content and structure it well.

You can make this easy and without having to work twice where other people already leave its contribution, that is what the unix philosophy is about.

Elinks lets you change key bindings and make custom scripts, so it's probably possible to have it run youtube-dl and mplayer from a youtube link.
It doesn't display images inline though, but relies on external viewer (like Lynx).
