Search Engines Anonymous 08/19/2017 (Sat) 15:56:08 [Preview] No. 10837 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The majority of them are garbage.

Has anyone discovered or created a search engine that allows the user to set parameters to exclude certain websites? The massive majority of search engines have little features and space for user input (Searx is probably the closest to what is ideal).

Try YaCy, is a self hosted search engine and has advanced features.

I wish Amazon would make their own search engine and compete with Google. They could do it, just look at Amazon Echo. They probably don't because if they infringe on Google's monopoly Google will retaliate hard and hurt Amazon's profits.

HP keylogger Anonymous 12/10/2017 (Sun) 20:13:39 [Preview] No. 11897 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
>TL;DR: HP had a keylogger in the keyboard driver. The keylogger saved scan codes to a WPP trace. The logging was disabled by default but could be enabled by setting a registry value (UAC required).

Because most of them are dumb fucks that don't see a point about that, since they see it as "conspiracy theory".

You know what sucks about discord is you can't use TOR to register a username anonymously. Sure you can use it, but as soon as you change IPs once they send an e-mail verification and then demand mobile verification before you can continue to use discord.

OK, I'll never use this service then.

I hate how many email services are now demanding mobile verification now days. Thus I am the only one I know who uses a foreign email service. It's ridiculous that they are mandating your personal info just to use their services. Fuck them all. I won't use that shit.

Medically speaking red fluorescent lightning. Green if you need shades, blue for the blind. Dark on low light: keeps eyes calm non-stressed. Other things include raised desktop to stand and walk, split ortholinear keyboard, small desktop or window to leaves the eyes still as possible. Treadmill on monitor with a pad keyboard is best.

Newb programming question Anonymous 12/07/2017 (Thu) 10:13:10 [Preview] No. 11858 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Hey guys, I wanted to write a script that will halve hex colour values and add together all possible combinations from 16 colours, making 256 colours. I suppose I could just halve the values to begin with, so really all I need to do is add hex value together to create all possible combinations. I have some python experience but still muddling through. Rare pepe for troubles.

Anonymous 12/07/2017 (Thu) 10:25:42 [Preview] No.11859 del
I don't think there is a library to do hex math directly in python. I think I need to define a hex converter, convert to int, do the sum, convert back.

Anonymous 12/08/2017 (Fri) 15:18:26 [Preview] No.11878 del
That's cool, but it's not really what I'm after. The way I think this should be handled is with 16 lists, each containing the red, green and blue value. eg:
rgb0 = [21, 21, 21]
rgb1 = [32, 32, 32]
rgb2 = [48, 48, 48]

I want to find all possible combinations of adding the values in those lists one to each other at a time. I can do one on one with numpy:
import numpy as np
np.add(rgb0, rgb0)
np.add(rgb0, rgb1)
np.add(rgb0, rgb2)
np.add(rgb1, rgb1)
np.add(rgb1, rgb2)
np.add(rgb2, rgb2)

What I think I need now is some logic to do it in sequence. I know there will be duplicates but thankfully the total combination will be 256 which is the exact number of colours in a palette. Then just to output to file.

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.
