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.

The collection seems really outdated:

idk, i got it from https://archive.org/details/ETYNTKE and the trackers from a random site.

I'm thinking about remaking the torrent (and just getting a new torrent client in general). Any suggestions?

Hunting down an OEM CPU Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:47:02 [Preview] No. 10117 [Reply]
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]
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.

why are you trying to shut him down.

Of course it will be a lot shittier than Google Earth but it would still be neat.

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.

Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:43:15 [Preview] No. 10095 del
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.)

I have no sleep in days
And i think this is a good option to do this

To format your "Ãusb", use dd:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdx

change sdx to your interface.
If you are paranoid about your system being infected, you should reinstall your system and reflash your BIOS...
But since you don't know how to use dd to format a disk, you probably have many other security problems that doesn't include your friend's software. Encrypt your disk if you want more security/privacy.

Also, he could dig sideways and then start carving up.
The point is: you won't untangle yourself when all you do is adding wrapping yourself with more rope.

>he could dig sideways and then start carving up.
If they can use hand-operated shovel, the wall is not solid enough dig sideways. Plus square-head doesn't even have a helmet, so it is extremely risky.

What I take from the graphics is that you have to be extremely dumb to get dig a hole and actively create a ladder problem like this.

Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:41:15 [Preview] No. 10084 del
You are still missing the point.
If you could read what I said before: the issue is people doubling down on complexity instead of moving away from it on a complexity issue.

I agree, the ladder solution is stupid. They don't even have any wood down there. Doubling down and building stairs is best solution.
