You'll never know until you try.
There's seven banners that's over 500 KB. Get better internet bandwidth and hardware.

Here's my proposal: make fourteen 500x200 old /g/ or /tech/ related banners under 500 KB that has an omega logo as well as /tech/ somewhere on the banner if it isn't clear enough that it's a /tech/ related banner. Do this and if there's more than two poorfag pajeets on their android phone using 2G networks, I'll get rid of all of the banners over 500 KB. Until then, tough luck phonefags, just filter the randomBanner.js script if you can.

If you want the banners smaller I can easily reduce the quality.

I don't think lynchan supports that as a banner

Yeah about that, if you guys want lower quality versions of the currently existing banners beyond 500 KB, then go ahead, I'll replace those instead IF that's what YOU guys want though it's really just one humble guy (excluding me and my one banner) making these banners. I really don't think that there's more than two minimalists lurking in our /tech/ at any moment so besides pleasing the masses, you don't "have" to at all. Take it as an self imposed challenge for fun. Do try to make it web optimized without making it look too crusty like a .gif image from the 90's.

TL;DR: researchers can crash devices with magnetic drives from just under a meter away using sound waves.

It's just finding the resonance frequency to vibrate the plates so the needle doesn't read or write properly? I like the idea of using it to disrupt CCTV recording.

It's not dead per se but it's not really alive like let's say warow or xonotic.A few meme commits per month doesn't and pretty much no communication with the community shuts the case by my standards regarding alive projects.
You could say it's alive the same way rtorrent is alive for example. With that I agree.

They're telling you to write to your representative. Not saying you'll succeed or have an impact though.
There are also other methods such as contributing to projects that hinder attempts of mass surveillance in your country/state.
Or getting your family to use instant messaging clients with good encryption.

Don't work, conglomerates have too much money.

Don't work, no one gives a shit about privacy anymore, they just follow the bandwagon and no pretty sheep is allowed to criticize.
>Or getting your family to use instant messaging clients with good encryption.
Never worked. They just use whatever the other people is using. I've tried so fucking many times that it's not even fun anymore (I suggested not some obscure software, but Signal, that has fancy interface and all - not once they installed it).

Something must happen and I think it's close (~2022), unfortunatelly.

>>12186 not 12185,
but what have you succeeded on?

You are dealing with a social problem you cannot fix.
FBI here is admitting encryption and good OPSEC actually work,
But if your family, and society as a whole, does not want either,
what are you left with?

I'm ignoring OP, and several respondents here who clearly read NSA's ANT Catalog,
and know clearly how NSA bypasses encryption by fuzzing Qualcomm chips worldwide[1].
NVM LTE is designed top to bottom to dox everyone in the planet (which is why
Snowden is COINTEL).

So tell me, what should I try?

Provided we can actually find a way to communicate, would anyone be interested in making our own alternative to privacytools.io ?

>I'm what you call "unangstfag" and also who 'designed' the html and all the information in it,

Well, like I said, it's an improvement over the previous version. It looks nice. Good job.

>since no one here is interested in contribute but, instead, talk shit.

Sometimes talking shit _is_ contributing. It is when I do it, anyway; my shit talking is (almost) never pointless.

Nonetheless, as a gesture of goodwill, I will read over the list again and attempt to make a more traditional contribution to the list.


>why does it have to be a website?

I can't speak for the guy who started it or for Unangstfag, but I would suggest the following:

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 keep five backup toughbooks inside of a plastic bag that has been heat sealed making it waterproof. I put the laptop inside of a faraday cage which in turn is inside of a metal box made of lead. Why five laptops you may ask? Well, that is if one of them breaks, I can move to another laptop and use that one instead, and if all of my laptops break, I can find the broken parts and use working parts from another to fix it.
