Which distro? I tried 8 or so distros and they all have problems on my laptop. Mainly dpi scaling on my 2k screen. Otherwise, many of them are great. I was looking at Ubuntu Budgie but there was not UI scaling option. Unity seems to have the best scaling and the GUI is all over the place. Icons are too small so I make them bigger but the text underneath is still tiny. Modal dialogs scale oddly. I compare this to running Ubuntu on my desktop(1080p). Which distro do you recommend for a 14 inch 2k laptop screen?

Alternative to dictionary attack Anonymous 07/25/2017 (Tue) 15:58:44 [Preview] No. 10484 [Reply]
I recently saw this wifi-cracking github:
https://github.com/brannondorsey/wifi-cracking

I don't think dictionary attacks is a efficient way to do it, though. Does anyone know if there's some tool that I can input information that I got through social engineering and then this tool generate a custom dictionary?
Example:

- The informations on a file:



$ cat foo.txt

name=Richard
age=32
house=1337
pet=John

>I don't know how to program this thing, but I don't think it's complex

So you want a neural network to datamine sporadic personal information and output potential password choices. Ill assume it would learn from correct responses to correlate certain data with potential passwords. For instance those with an age over 50 have shorter passwords often using the name of a pet or child. It would probably need to scrape that data from social media because that's a lot to input by hand not to mention the frequency of posting, who they interact with most and common language used in posts are all also valuable data.

Yeah, doesn't sound too hard, give me half an hour and I will write a python script for that.

Even though you're ironic, I'll keep my position, it doesn't sound too complex for me.
The information could be dragged from a site like Intelius Premier. It would be much more efficient than simple dictionary attacks. Even if it's not ANN-based, a statistical model would be better than the actual dict. attack.

Hey techies, my idiot friend and I want to make a simple game.

What are some nice language choices for us? Bare in mind we are both fairly retarded with little interest in programming and no intention of becoming good.

Not so interested in "game engines" as that seems like learning something more than we need.

Python and Gambas look good.

Why am I being stonewalled from the discussion now?

I started the discussion, now because you all believe Bruce Peren's
libel that I "don't know what I'm talking about" (after he wrote an
article based on my council...) and his public sanction against me
because HE didn't understand the importance of brainstorming any and all
likely arguments from the other side (because HE is brought in as an
expert witness only once an action is well underway and doesn't witness
the work that is done in bringing a case forward from a cold start), I
am no longer included in the conversation.

I feel I've been wronged and I am very angry about it.

its the chan cycle like kali yuga.

refugee from 4chan to 8chan to diaspora now i guess. i've been trying all of the chans i know but they have small userbases compared to 4chan and 8chan. i've heard good things about nntpchan but haven't tried it. and blazechan has innovative features.

8/tech/ users are 95%+ larpers who never code. i remember back 2014 - 2015 it was completely different. there were groups legitimately trying to help anons gitgud but nothing came of it.

it's sad and very frustrating the cycle of the chans.

>>10428
i used both /pol/ and /tech/ on 8chan. 2014 there were a lot of crossposters. but they coded and didn't use the board for shitposting. there was an effort to help interested anons on /pol/ gitgud with self-improvement threads. blame it on the mods when they started banning self-improvement threads they drove out core users leaving only idiots who spread to and degrade board quality on all boards. when new users come to /pol/ they see these idiots and learn to act like them.

8/prog/ maybe is still worth something.

we should start monthly library threads here (or, tri-monthly since the board is slow). work with a new library every month and compete to see who comes up with the best shit. 8/tech/ did this early 2015 and then it died out. but they were some of the threads i enjoyed most. we should restart it. be the change you want to see.

we used to do threads where we'd focus on using 1 new library a month. for example, sfml or libpng or zlib. 1 month seems to short it'd be better as 2 - 3 months.

Live posting can be pretty good, in theory. Unfortunately the one's I've seen are full of avatarfags and blog posters. If you like tight knight communities with the occasional pretentious larper then you'll fit right in. Chanpink looked horrible and i doubt I'll find myself there again; if you asked me for an example of a consistently good anonymous image board, i wouldn't have any, live or not. Unfortunately.

I spend too much time pondering and editing my old memories and looking back into the past rather than creating and fostering new memories, and I believe that this problem is happening to many of you as well. It seems that content and activities that used to entertain us have stopped being entertaining, and the world has just become more shitty and boring. Before, these mediums were funny and people made posts with intelligence to back them up, and people didn't take the world seriously, life is too short to worry and deal with normalfag problems. /pol/ always loves to blame the jews, but I seriously am starting to ponder the possibility of a malicious group that is subverting all of the small and interesting communities and sending normalfags into a deeper trance, they don't need to think when they are told what to think and are fed endless piles of temporary pleasures and entertainment. I don't believe any anons believe how difficult it is to usurp control from each individual country and be able to manipulate and control many various events at once, but it is very much possible with some interesting technology...

If someone built a special machine that could change the very way people think... I have thought of and conceptualized technology such as this, and knowing that out there someone else has thought of it as well and has put it to use... They could take over the world with ease and control it by pressing a few keys on their laptop from the safety of their home.

How do you store your data/backups? Anonymous 07/20/2017 (Thu) 23:19:37 [Preview] No. 10460 [Reply]
Hie, I'm trying to find a good solution to never get out of storage on my HDDs, for my backups and my regular use.
What is your data storage solution?
I want, if possible, a solution that is the most freedom compliant.
There is the usb HDDs, 3/4 plugged on a rasp.
There is the NAS with 3.5' HDDs in it.
Maybe a cheap 20$ computer with the HDDs in it with linux installed...

What should be the best? What HDD to buy (there are these backdoors, even though I don't think I can find any without)

Thanks you!

I just use external usb drives for "cold" data storage, but I have encrypted password files on floppies that get refreshed/replaced from time to time(multiple, for redundancy). I have an old pentium 3 era machine I will probably end up putting sata drives in (with IDE adapters of course) for intermediate storage so I dont have to worry too much about backdoored hardware.

Honestly I have never heard of backdoors in hard drives, but then again anything with firmware is vulnerable.
