It's not a true collective effort to say the least, it's just one guy who's curating the links and picked some ideas from a thread that he made on /tech/ so that he could make the claim that it was a collaboration, which if you treat him and the Endwall guy as /tech/ users, then sure, why not. It is not however, the "official end/tech/'s secure computing practices links". If you've got a better list, I might consider putting that up as well if it isn't half assed.

He needs to trim the exculsions way down and explain why each country is chosen. Ohterwise he is making people more insecure using that exclusion list rather than more secure.

CPU, RAM, GPU: 1x single board computer

A Single Board Computer provides every component needed to build laptop, except for battery, display, keyboard and case, each of which can be added separately.

Single Board Computers provide CPU, RAM, GPU, motherboard and some other integrated features on a single board. They are full desktop computer system that is sufficiently small and low power consuming to be used as a mobile, DIY laptop. They are also very low cost (<$50).

The most important feature of Single Board Computers is that there are models that are fully open source. It is possible to build a fully functional laptop with Free Software only, including free firmware, wireless and 3D video acceleration drivers. It is even possible to get SBCs with open source hardware designs.

For reference:

Single Board Computers with free 3D video acceleration (Etnaviv)
Nitrogen6X ($225): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC2000, 2 GB DDR3, best option, compatible with mainline kernels
Nitrogen6_MAX ($299): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC3000, 4 GB DDR3, faster Nitrogen6X
Wandboard QuadPLUS ($139): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC3000, 2 GB DDR3, cheaper version of Nitrogen6_MAX, not mainline

Open source hardware Single Board Computers
BeagleBone Black ($55): Single core ARM A8 @ 1 GHz, TI Sitara AM335x, PowerVR SGX530, 512 MB DDR3, fully open source except GPU, mainline compatible, https://github.com/beagleboard/beaglebone-black

Charger

The DIY Modular Open Source Laptop is designed to be charged by any combination of solar panel, handcrank generator, USB AC adapter, USB car charger, USB port or thermoelectric generator. Unlike most rechargeable electronics, each charger can charge the USB powerbank battery of the DIY laptop seperately from the DIY laptop. This flexible and modular charging ensures the DIY laptop never runs out of energy, yet never needs to be charged either.

For reference
USB solar charger: SOKOO 22W 5V 2-Port USB Portable Foldable Solar Charger ($55)
Handcrank generator: K-TOR Pocket Socket Hand Crank Generator Portable Power Supply 10 Watts 120 Volts ($60)
Pedal generator: K-tor Power Box 20 Watt Pedal Generator ($200)
Thermoelectric generator: Camping Stove Thermoelectric Generator TEG Power - Devil Watt 15 Watt ($304)

Each reference charger can provide the 5V 2A needed to charge a USB powerbank at full speed. The most convenient charger will depend on the situation.

Solar panels can provide >150 W unattended outdoors at daytime.
Handcrank or pedal generators can provide <150 W attended indoors or outdoors, day or night. Handcrank generators can be used while standing or moving, but pedal generators can be used while also using the DIY laptop.
Thermoelectric generators can provide >150 W unattended outdoors, day or night. Indoors with ventilation.
USB AC adapters can be used wherever there is AC electric grid.
USB car adapters can be used with most DC electricity sources such as 12 V car batteries or six 1.5 V AA batteries in series. USB car adapters can also convert DC from solar panels, thermoelectric generators, handcrank generators, DC wind or hydroelectric turbines into 5V DC for charging the DIY laptop.

Very nice. Really.
I think this could be minimized in size, though, using trackpoint ('clit') instead of touchpad and squeezing the components inside. The wood color would also call too much attention while using it in public, so a matte black painting would be nice.
I don't know if you're the creator, but this is pretty cool.

About the keyboard, I had this idea some time ago of using a foldable keyboard from Blackberry, like this one:
https://www.amazon.com/Stowaway-Ultra-Slim-Bluetooth-Blackberry-Handhelds/dp/B0002OKCXE

So, all the components would be together with the display, like a mobile 'tablet', and this foldable keyboard could be unfolded just when you start using the computer and would serve as the 'base' for the display. This could make it less havier and also would be smaller i size.

Never finished that project, but I still think it's a good idea (although I'm thinking about head-mounted displays with hand-adapted keyboard now, instead of conventional laptop format).

This is for those of you who ask about this form factor every so often. I hope enough people join so that he makes beige ones.

The X500 Pro is the final product in a line of computer cases designed a few years back (the X500 Plus and later the Evo with a mechanical keyboard) as a tribute to the computers of the '80s and '90s (Commodore, Atari, Sinclair etc...). It's a wedge styled computer case with built-in, full size mechanical keyboard.

The chassis that I originally opened this thread with is dead so I ended up finding a substitute in the Checkmate A1500 which has the pizza box form factor. It's for Amiga fans but can fit mITX/mATX with a full-size reference blower-style graphics card. There'll also be risers so you can slide your keyboard under it when not in use.

Palemoon blacklists NoScript Anonymous 05/12/2018 (Sat) 03:01:36 [Preview] No. 12708 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As the subject says. It's been entered into their custom "bitch at the user with a popup until they disable it" database. To be fair to the developer, he has solid reasons for his stance. I'll try to summarize as there is a lot of misinformation and emotion out there fogging the issue.

1) The Palemoon project does not have enough developer juice to debug other software and addons.
2) Various users: "[website] does not work with Palemoon. Fix your shit, Moonman!"
3) Moonman: "Known issue. Stop being morons and disable NoScript. Thank you, and have a nice day."
4) Various users: "We did. Same problem. Fix your shit."
5) Moonman: "Oh. That's an actual issue with Palemoon then. I'm on it!"
6) Much hacking and cracking and time and talent are expended to no effect. Surprise! NoScript does not follow the standard of letting go of the browser when disabled. It lingers on. It has to be completely uninstalled with an added cache clearing operation on top of that.
7) Moonman: "It's NoScript. Get rid of it. Have a nice day."
8) Various users: "No. FIX YOUR SHIT!"
9) Moonman: "Crush. Kill. DESTROY!"

If you roll with my simplification you can see his point.

I have two observations. First, quite a few sites have a technical support checklist that runs like this: "What browser are you using? Palemoon? Oh good! We have two fixes you may choose from. One, use another browser. Two, go away and do not come back."

My irony sense is tingling.

More and more websites are using "loading" screens for some reason, and most of the elements are display:none until fully loaded and the js changes it. All this without any "javascript is required for this page to function properly" message. I think the currently popular UI kits (like bootstrap styles) are the one to blame here.

NoScript also has a very unintuitive pop-up interface:
>Allow http://endchan5doxvprs5.onion
>Forbid http://endchan5doxvprs5.onion
For the first time, it is not clear whether these are actions or statuses. Especially when you consider the icons next to them.

I can imagine how hard to troubleshoot this. But the way it is explained at http://blocklist.palemoon.org/info/?id=pm112 doesn't help anyone.

seamonkey just updated on my work computer (without asking I am flabbergasted) all of my add-ons still work though, which is surprising.
Only difference insofar as I can tell is it no longer just downloads stuff I tell it to download it asks where I want to download it each time which is a rather useless procedure.
It's still probably the best option for me at work on a windows computer.



Endware Endwall 05/03/2016 (Tue) 08:54:28 [Preview] No. 32 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Endware is a suite of programs geared towards internet privacy, security, and anonymity.

Endwall: endwall.sh is an iptables based firewall script designed to be implemented on any linux distribution shipped with iptables. endwall.sh is based on default drop policies, coupled with a novel strategy of passing packets on local host ports only for those enabled by the enduser. It comes with a variety of well used ports enabled with several additional port passing configurations available by uncommenting the script. It provides essential security to a new user.

Endsets: endsets.sh is a script that adds blacklisting and whitelisting functionality to endwall.sh. It depends on the program ipset. It is persistent on reboot if you enable ipset as a service. This is the recommended blacklisting tool for endwall if you are running a server or planning on opening up ports and services to the public and will require daily blacklisting of new incomming IPs.

Endlists: endlists.sh is a traditional text file list based blacklisting and whitelisting script. It has slow performance, and can't be updated on the fly. Good for <1000 ip subnets, very tedious and slow to run for more than that. Blocks the IPs by adding them as individual rules to the iptables ruleset. Works but not recommended for heavy duty on a server. May be useful for workstation use to block ip ranges if you are not opening up ports and services to public clients.

Endtools: endtools are a collection of scripts including alogz.sh, mlogz.sh, spamlogz.sh and iplookup.py. These scripts will help to service an enduser of endwall in adminstering endsets/endlists.

iplookup.py is a geoiplookup script written in python and requires python and pygeoip. It has simmilar functionality to maxmind's geoiplookup program and uses the maxmind *.dat files.

spamlogz.sh is a script that searches through log files to find flagged log entries flagged in endwall.sh, endsets.sh and endlists.sh.

alogz.sh is a daily log reading script designed to read the output of an apache http server's log output.

mlogz.sh is a daily log reading script designed to read the output of a postfix smtp server's log output.

Please keep the commentary in this thread to Endware discussion. As this note might be falsely attributed to Endwall. I didn't write it.

I don't know anything about this information. I assumed it may have been a recommendation for me to try the Bastille Linux script or a notice about its status... I looked around and didn't find anything in the news about any status changes or problems with it... I'm not sure what this is about.

Update Endwall 05/10/2018 (Thu) 08:03:33 [Preview] No.1209 del
endstream.sh
- I've added about 200 livestream.com channels mostly of local news from USA. I have to organize this into a coherent framework and also move foreign language channels into language groups. Other than organizational stuff, I'm more or less done working on this product for the next couple of months, it should be static. I want to slowly replace the youtube streams with other alternatives whenever available. It's too much of a hassle repairing the keywords every once and a while, or checking to see if the provider has stopped providing content.

endtv.sh
- I replaced the engine with the endstream engine and added some more channels from the website. I have to find and remove all the dead channels. That process should take place incrementally over the next couple of months.

endradio.sh
- I've added a couple radio stations, ABC AU, and some Russian stations, not much but some minor adjustments.

All the files are available in the usual places.

Moving forward I plan on working more on the BSD ports and updating them to the current GNU/Linux equivalent. I also plan on making a reference version of Endware for Debian, by setting up a Debian box and testing the scripts and modifying them until they work under that environment. Some of the broken scripts will be looked at again to see what can be done if anything to repair them. I'll also update the license and do some license revisions as mentioned in the EULA thread. There is nothing really revolutionary on the horizon in terms of new software for Endware.

Any bug reports, software requests, feature requests, etc. post below. Thanks.

Some introductory questions:

1) What are some good books on this subject both mathematical and practical?

2) What are some good methods to defeat crypt-analysis like frequency analysis to include when doing standard encryption methods like RSA using gpg? Would padding the plain text message before encryption with arbitrary random ASCII on both ends help or hinder this process?

3) Why is the trend for modern crypto to move away from using prime numbers towards elliptic curves? Speed? Security? Lower computation time?

Of course do this on your air gap and shuttle the messages and replies by floppy disk to your transmission workstation. Do encryption and decryption on an air-gap, and move the messages by floppy disk message sneaker net FDMSN . That should mess them up really good. If they can still get to your messages after that then re-evaluate the trustworthiness of the counter-party correspondent.

RC2014
http://rc2014.co.uk/

RC2014 is a simple 8 bit Z80 based modular computer originally built to run Microsoft BASIC. It is inspired by the home built computers of the late 70s and computer revolution of the early 80s. It is not a clone of anything specific, but there are suggestions of the ZX81, UK101, S100, Superboard II and Apple I in here. It nominally has 8K ROM, 32K RAM, runs at 7.3728MHz and communicates over serial at 115,200 baud.

RC2014 is available in kit form for you to solder together.  Through-hole components are used throughout, making soldering easy, even for those with limited soldering experience.  Along with a selection of modules to extend functionality, such as serial terminals with HDMI output, digital input modules or, simple keyboard, the RC2014 is a very adaptable computer.

Assembly guides can be found here:

RC2014
http://rc2014.co.uk/
As soon as you turn RC2014 on you can start programming in Microsoft BASIC.  This is very easy to get started with and some very complex programs can be written.  To get right down to the metal, though, you can write your programs in Z80 machine code.

Development of the RC2014 has lead to a more powerful machine with pageable ROM, 64k RAM, compact flash storage and a whole range of expansion peripherals.  With the right modules, it’s now possible to run CP/M, which opens the RC2014 up to a wide range of software.

RC2014 can be bought from Tindie:

Z80 Retrocomputing 18 - Z180 CPU board for RC2014
https://youtube.com/watch?v=D9u9hhNjcEY [Embed]
Dr. Scott M. Baker
In this video, I build and try out a Z180 CPU board to replace the Z80 CPU in my RC2014 retrocomputer. Aside from simply being faster than the Z80 that I'm currently using, the Z180 offers a lot of on-board peripherals (serial IO, timers, interrupt controller, mmu, dma, etc). I benchmark the 20 Mhz Z180 against my 7.3728 Mhz Z80. I'm saving exploration of the onboard peripherals for a future video. For more retrocomputing projects, see http://www.smbaker.com/

I'm wrong about the use of encryption with the SSD. In fact, you can, but you can't trim the SSD.
So if you're doing heavy work, then it'll be a real problem. I'm not even talking about buying it second hand, and so getting an already used SSD. But you still can use it.

But we have to treat SSDs differently regarding sec.

The demise of Ixquick Anonymous 04/19/2018 (Thu) 22:47:34 [Preview] No. 12655 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I would like to hear what the community has to say regarding search engines, with a twist.

A long time coming, today I found all my requests to Ixquick redirected to Startpage. Ixquick was my engine of choice. At this point I expect someone to cite the primary importance of privacy, my previous choice of Ixquick, and thus an obvious suggestion: Startpage. Thanks, but no thanks.

What is my problem with Startpage?

Here is my perspective. With adequate provisioning, any search engine is fine to use from a privacy standpoint. By provisioning I mean choice of browser, addons, connection method, etc. My primary concern is not privacy because I handle that myself, ignoring the S.E.'s reputation for such. My concern is with the quality of search results.

History lesson. In olden days the choice was between Yahoo or Google. Yahoo went early with the commercial model, carefully managing your complete experience end-to-end, steering you toward their valuable partners, web portalization, etc. Google beat all that with strict adherence to academic methodology, and computer science. Sadly, all was merely short term tactics over strategy. Yahoo had the right idea, the right strategy, but it was Google who became Yahoo's dream.

Anyway, today, I find a note of bias in Google S.E. results, with commercial, regulatory, and ideological considerations given subtle (but noticeable) predominance. This is why I preferred Ixquick. While including results from Google, they cast a wide net and did not give any source special prominence. I found Ixquick returned more relevant results.

My understanding is Startpage goes straight to Google for everything. Given my perspective, you should understand why I find Startpage to be nothing more than Google re-branded. Such is my problem with Startpage.

Searx I know of. MetaGer is currently my favorite contender. What else is worth consideration?

I'm surprised to see them do it.
I have no idea why, but they've made a number of retarded moves with no explanation in the past:
>removing the option to get 100 results per page
>removing scroll image search
>removing search query from tab title
If it's a cost cutting measure, it'd have to be because more and more people are
learning it exists and using it, but they don't make enough money
(from selling email accounts) to keep up with the demand.
Maybe people didn't use Ixquick enough.
Maybe they think Searx is superior.
I don't know.

You are right that Google's results are trash (articles from news websites typically get top priority second only to Wikipedia)
but everything else is even worse in my experience

Searx is what you want if you like having control over what results you get,

Watching the Zuckerberg testimony to the Senate Judiciary & Commerce Commitee on C-SPAN2.

This Zukerberg guy seems to think that we're dumb. He keeps saying that Facebook only knows about what you share in terms of likes, dislikes, and pictures.

Here's something that they do: They track who's pictures you click on, how many you look at, and how long you linger on a picture or on someone's page, they also track who you creep on from people not in your friends list. They can use this to harass you and blackmail you. They can use this to determine your sexual orientation, and determine who you find sexually appealing, without you sharing the information explicitly, among other things. They also build extensive profiles on your political viewpoints, and track and monitor all of your connections and affiliations.

None of it is private. Don't use this service. It's a PRISM service provider, and can be used to triangulate your position and activities in the real world, and preempt and stop you from doing activities. RUN. Don't use it.

If you have to use it for business, be careful, be aware that it is an intrusive surveillance platform. Nothing you do on it is private, it's all tracked and stored in a database. They track all of your clicks, and database all of it and use it to determine information about your preferences that you don't actually share. Using very sophisticated statistical data mining. They also share this data with many more 3rd parties than just the Government of the United Sates of America. Don't use it if you can avoid it.

Optical Computing vs Quantum Computing Anonymous 04/16/2018 (Mon) 02:34:21 [Preview] No.12648 del
LIGHT: How optical processing can solve some of the world’s most complex problems.
https://www.labs.hpe.com/next-next/light
>Beausoleil spent about a decade working on quantum computing. That’s when he experimented with chips made out of diamonds. His team found that it was too difficult to create enough diamond chips that had exactly the same qualities, making it impossible to manufacture them in a repeatable and predictable way. This particular approach to building a quantum computer wouldn’t scale.
>Beausoleil concluded that photonic technology offered a faster and more practical route to success than building an actual quantum computer. “When somebody does manage to create a true quantum system with entanglement, that’s going to be awesome,” Beausoleil says. “Right now, we’re leaving that one on the table and just trying to take advantage of coherence.”
>[...]
>Optical computing is an emerging field with experimental components. The challenge is to raise the yield of working components to a commercially viable level. The Labs approach is to create a round of equipment, test it to identify flaws, then determine necessary changes in the chip design or manufacturing method.
>[...]
>Labs researchers are also exploring new applications for their optical circuits. For example, they’ve designed a system called an energy minimization computer that changes the state of an optical circuit to find the configuration that consumes the least amount of energy. This concept applies perfectly to solving NP-hard problems like the traveling salesman.
>[...]
>This technology won’t replace general-purpose electronic computers, because lots of problems aren’t NP-hard problems. But a photonic system-on-a-chip could be used as an accelerator running alongside a CPU in a conventional computer. Emerging computing platforms like The Machine, a next-generation system under development at Hewlett Packard Labs, offer even more intriguing possibilities. The Machine will hold huge amounts of data in memory and allow users to plug in different processors as needed, depending on the type of computation they want to perform.
>This technology won’t replace general-purpose electronic computers...
I still haven't learned why this would be the case.

That sounds really cool. I've always liked the idea of having a completely modular computer, more so than what we currently have; the ability to have multiple processors for different tasks in a standard level computer would be incredible. It will never happen, because most users don't care for solving NP-Hard problems, though.

I spoke with a guy who had a PhD in photonics about 6 months ago. Although that conversation was mainly about carbon fibre, the bandwidth increases alone seem like they would be able to replace normal computers easily. Imagine being able to compute on a terabyte of data in seconds. We're hitting the limits of silicon, and quantum computers require massive amounts of energy to keep the conditions correct. Photonics looks like the only way forward.

To add to my first paragraph (which is worded like shit), my main ideas would be having a modular CPU. So, the APU, cache etc. and the controller for all of the chips would be separate, rather on one die. There would be a much higher latency, especially for the cache, but that could potentially be negated by using a high-bandwidth connection and by using large packets. But it would be much easier to upgrade in response to exploits. Meltdown/Spectre? Just buy a new cache module that mitigates the exploit. Intel ME spying on you? Buy an open source controller that you know can't be hacked remotely.
It would make cooling a bit of a nightmare, though.

While I'm at it, why can't we have open source CPU designs at all, like we do with 40xx and 74xx chips, where different manufacturers make functionally identical products? If the basic chips are simpler (as described in my first paragraph), it wouldn't be too difficult to accomplish. The truly paranoid people could even produce their own modules that would work in a standard motherboard then.

I believe this is the goal of RISC-V, a silicon project which is just getting rolling this year.
Qualcomm, Samsung, nVidia, Western Digital, have all invested in it, so it's possible that there'll be more competition for consumers in the area of CPUs; there's also Sifive and Lo-risc which I believe are companies more committed to actual open-sourcing.

Normal people however can't make their own CPU in their garage---it takes highly advanced equipment, controlled space, and enormous amounts of money.

>>12653
>We're hitting the limits of silicon, and quantum computers require massive amounts of energy to keep the conditions correct.
>Photonics looks like the only way forward.
An argument I don't find too bad from quantum enthusiasts is that 60 years ago, electric computers took up entire rooms, and now they fit into the palms of hands.
Obviously there's limitations that restrict the potential mobility of quantum computers no matter what, but it's possible that a consumer could get a fridge-sized quantum computer in their own homes some decades from now.

But that is far off. If you want better personal computing now, I see nothing more promising than optical computers.

>the ability to have multiple processors for different tasks in a standard level computer would be incredible. It will never happen, because most users don't care for solving NP-Hard problems, though.
It won't be available for "most consumers" in the first place. Windows is over and Macintosh will never get off silicon. These computers are going to run OS that won't be geared toward non-professionals; and so they won't be the target market initially.

That is something I will keep in mind because some addons stop working like "white noise generator" which did what "trackmenot" does but in a seperate window with tabs randomly switching to random webpages.

I'm pretty sure Ghostery can be analyzed. I saw somewhere recently that they made it open source, so basically you can look through the source code if you want. Might be something worthwhile to do, but isn't necessarily something I would be able to do since I don't know shit about coding.

The Ruination of Technology Anonymous 04/15/2018 (Sun) 02:32:10 [Preview] No. 12630 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Howdy friends, it is time for a thread by me, your favorite endchan poster. Hmm, basically this thread will be all about technology. And perhaps I will share some amusing anecdotes and or opinions in the subject, from my lifetime in the destruction of American tech sector. I call it "the destruction of tech" because that is what they did. Weaponizing it, and infiltrating a bunch of rupee caste to take over the tech positions. Now we see India going full on beast money to control their people. We in America allowed this horror to happen.

Essentially, this bespeaks how corporatized (non citizen controlled) tech is actually a device for intl level fuckwads, to ruin the USA power base through their infiltration of their dirtbag "engineer" types who are famous for being total fuckups and makers of shitty code. basically 25 years of kike enabled war on technology, with bitches like Jobs Zuckerberger and Billgatus who bought DOS from the guy across the street. Like also how Disney himself couldn't draw for shit, but he knew how to buy artists and market his stuff (and how to blackmail and make underworld mulholland drive style connections to the deepest of states see also Hugh Hefner grotto full of kompromat).

Here in paragraph three I will make the point that essentially conspiracy is the water the boat of the world floats upon. Our time is when people alternately struggle and ask questions about what rich fuckers might actually get up to, and is "Hostel" descriptive of a certain class of people who delight in murdering and eating others? Eli Roth, hmm, is he part of some Hollywood eviltech to make us all see and believe bullshit horror as fantasy rather than accepting bullshit horror as truth of our lives? If only we knew how little they value us as souls and how much they value themselves as the soulless?

Okay so here in paragraph four I will say that the ability to project sound upon one person and thereby make them hear a voice spoken to them, reminds me of when Valdemort 'speaks' to all the kids in their heads. I wonder that it wouldn't be difficult to hmm in some stadium let us say, project into people's heads, on a seat by seat basis. Imagine if you will, a stadium full of people being delightfully spoken to in their heads/ears by what may as well be a spirit or a ghost, encouraging them to visit concession stands. Would you call that technology? Imagine a lady saying "did you hear that too?" and you didn't hear that which she is referring to. Will you wonder what words were sent to her head and not to yours? In the past 25 years of technology, what has humanity gained and what have we lost?

Finally here we speak to the death of the IP network. I would say again, it's due to us allowing third world shitbags to ruin it. We should have kept it to ourselves, but again, the intl kike scheme is designed to Zucerberger everyone as if we were all cattle. Push the IP into the lousiest places and tech-nable the biggest assholes of the world. Just imagine if we had kept fidon et and the earliest nets private and only allowed higher level citizens to use them. In this way the intl shitbags would have been kept down in their mudpits, and never been given the gifts which we white folks invented. Not being racist, just saying that white people make awesome shit and others can't give us credit for that. Everything we make, they ruin. So in this way again, I ask, if "Hitler Guy" of the future, re invents the IP schema, but keeps it as a national thing, with zero connections to the outside world, would you consider that to be an advancement of tech or a disadvancement of tech? Well anyway thanks for listening and ask any questions you wish. Here we mourn or celebrate the full spectrum war happening to us all.

[cont] Europeans might have had a more subtle understanding of gold than did good honorable soldier and officer class as Sherman did. But was he a rube? An unsophisticated dummy? No because he knew iron and steel and alloys and metals. But gold was not an implement of war at that time. In California it wasn't legal tender or money. One then wonders, can some class of people, coin living blood, into gold itself? The blood inside you, animating and making you what you are, is it worth something precious to you? And if so, will we eventually be using blood as money as the last line of "the safety of markets"? Maybe you can see an horrific place in that line of questioning?

So very much concentrated hatred and tension, the sign of one at war with themselves internally, sorrow instilled within them by their own perception of the world and an existence revolving around it. I agree that many events have occurred throughout history as a result of the malicious intentions of those who care not for others, but the very fact you are capable of broadcasting this message to us, the very fact that at the press of a button you can access seemingly endless troves of information that our ancestors would have killed to obtain, is this not evidence of the greatness that is the internet, a medium which contains the information gathered over centuries to be accessed by anyone anywhere in the planet?
Humans are quite foolish creatures, greedy for naturally occurring metals and dominion over others, but never desiring to be dominated themselves. The society which many yearn for is a society which firstly fulfills the basic needs for human life, and only then can one explore themselves and the world to grow themselves and learn.

Well said. I parsed it out like meaningful prose. But is the age of books going to last? Amazon has a great used book business going tho, I buy used books there all the time. However, some of my friends do use kindle device. I could write a book on having lady who uses kindle device but there is no need for such a book. Fact is: People had been preconditioned to expect a "Star Trek" world, i.e. tablets we swipe and so forth. AND YET Star Trek itself presumes total nuke war and destruction, for us, by 2100 AD I think. And if you take note of TNG they view people from our time as basically diseased crap. Yes I know it is just a TV show but it is also powerful somnambulist program that makes generations, expect certain things.

If they showed the kindle device, in ST as what it is: just some book reading gadget, enabling someone like Bezos (and his chums), we wouldn't like it. We wanted the Trek thing from 1968 to become a great thing. But the kindle is not well suited for battle, I would only deploy it to rear echelon units.

A complete transition from x86 would take years to be done. Also, if some bunch of people from internet get to reverse engineer intel's microcode, don't you think military security agency wouldn't have this capability? They do. They probably don't run on x86 anyway, not the stuff that needs to be secure, anyway.

Well the issue is more like the standards of the web have gotten out of hand. New standards need to be spread and upheld. Imagine it like this: we could either fork existing browsers or webengines and add more functionality, like supporting FLIF and animated SVGs and other goodies they currently don't deem necessary, or we remove and replace functionality, like taking out Javascript support and only allowed for scripting using LISP dialects. But you need webpages and websites that are going to conform to that new standard, and the only way that's going to happen is if it's small fansites or homepages that can leverage an alternative search index besides Google (who is heavily biased toward big-name websites that can pay for positioning).

It's not a problem that can be solved just by introducing new web browsers. It'd be better to just support a fork that already exists.

I'm very sceptical that HURD is developed enough to be released by the end of this year. Does GuixSD even have a newbie-friendly installer yet, like the major distributions?

Anyway, let's assume that the world is perfect. HURD is completed by the end of the year. Then what? Now you have Linux and GNU as two distinct entities, distinct operating systems. Now third party developers might have to develop for one additional system; lots of developers don't even port their software to BSD, as far as I've seen. How would they deal with the threat of incompatibility with software originally designed to run with the Linux kernel? Maybe that so many developers use glibc will mean that this is not a big issue at all. I don't know.

Okay, what if it wasn't an issue? What incentive would people have to adopt the GNU operating system, instead of or in addition to Linux? The BSDs already operate according to a centralized development model that is its prime distinction from Linux. GNU would be either be moving toward that model or it could be like Linux and allow for distributions of the GNU operating system built upon HURD. But what would GNU have to offer? Obviously, completely, 100% free software. Ideologically, that's a big win, but this wouldn't translate necessarily to practical benefits for the user. The driver support would be worse, the software repository smaller. The only way it could grow would be to convince would be Linux users, and even would be BSD users, to develop for GNU; but aside from the free software philosophy, which is not exclusive to but only purer in the GNU OS, what would be the draw?

With that question in mind, I just don't see HURD ever taking off even if it finally makes it out of the hangar and unto the airstrip.
