Too bad that the users of this board were never that good with technology. They were years above typical people, but far from a unified knowledge base seen in only a few individuals across the planet...

Intel/AMD CPUs were hit with Meltdown and Spectre, and Intel already had the Management Engine inside of it.
Some things with TOR and other projects happened, a coordinated attack on multiple imageboards (Be lucky that I am telling you this, it was largely undetected) that resulted in lainchan, mewch, and other getting hit hard.

While I'm not familiar with the board, after a quick skim I see you did a good job. I also found threads with potential, wish Endchan would have a few more posters. I hope someone with good intentions takes over your place.
Have a nice one, dude.

This, to my knowledge, is the best /tech/nology board that exists. 4chan is consumerist gaymer garbage, 8ch/tech/ has been overrun with faggots from /pol/ trying to hide from muh jooz, lainchans data was wiped off the fucking planet when their administrators screwed up, and all of the others are dead.

If this board is to be brought back to a state of prosperity, we need to create and bring forth more educated individuals with a yearning to understand with the motivation and knowledge to pursue their own projects.

Learning 4 Newbs:
C Programming Language (Learn how to make that machine you shitpost with do what you want)
Computer Organization and Design (Learn how that machine you are using to shitpost works)
George Simmons Precalculus In A Nutshell (Will revamp your mathematical knowledge and help you understand deeply)
The Art Of Electronics (Learn how that machine you shitpost on works on the lowest level with electricity!)

Getting Started:
-Look on ebay for old thinkpads (If you are here, you should already have done this)
-Get a small Raspberry Pi (Simple to learn with and a massive community and hundreds of projects done already with firmware support)
-FPGA boards (Big boy electronic design, where you get to psuedodesign your own CPU. Try https://www.nandland.com/ (Xilinx is independent, Altera is Intel owned, so I'm not going to trust them)) LIMITED ONLY BY YOUR IMAGINATION!...
-Some cheapo electronics tools and wires from Amazon or an electronic supply store. Hakko is a japanese-based company and creates some of the best soldering stations and irons for the lowest price, 60/40 solder will get the job done. Don't forget solder wick, or your gonna have a bad time. Avoid working with BGA electonics.
-A multimeter and an Oscilloscope (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) if you want to dig deeper into your electronics. A variable power supply will also give you more freedom.

nice bread op. i have a few books coming in and i've already read through most of them in pdf format. one is k&r but i also recommend people get a solid grasp of networking. my recommendation is Computer Networking a Top-down Approach. pretty pricey textbook, found a bad condition copy on ebay for 30 bucks though.

Author rescinds GPL licensed code from "Geek Feminists" Anonymous 01/11/2019 (Fri) 01:21:48 [Preview] No. 13089 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Reportedly, the author of the GPL licensed text-mode casino game "GPC-Slots 2" has rescinded the license from the "Geek feminist" collective.

The original author, after years of silence, notes that the "Geek Feminist" changed[1] a bunch of if-then statements which were preceded by a loop waiting for string input to a switch statement. The author reportedly noted that to use a switch statement in such an instance is no more preformant than the if-thens. Switch statements should be used where the input to the switch statement is numerical, and of a successive nature, for most efficient use of the jump table that is generated from said code.

The author reportedly was offended, after quiet observation of the group, that the "Geek Feminists" mocked his code, mocked his existence as a male, and never did any work on the code afterwards and never updated to include new slot machines added to the original code by author subsequently.

The author notes that he neither sought nor received any compensation for the granted license, that is was a gratuitous license, and that there never was any refutation of his default right to rescind given. (A right founded in the property law of licenses.)

The copyright owner has reportedly watched quietly as each year the "Geek Feminists" published a recount of their heroic efforts regarding his code.[2][3] Presumably he has now had enough of it all...

The author notes that the SF Conservancy attempts to construe a particular clause in the GPL version 2 license text as a "no revocation by grantor clause", however that clause states that if a licensee suffers and automatic-revocation by operation of the license, that licensees down stream from him do not suffer the same fate. The author of "GPC-Slots 2" reportedly notes that said clause does only what it claims to do: clarifies that a downstream licensee, through no fault of his own, is not penalized by the automatic revocation suffered by a licensee he gained a "sub-license" from (for lack of a better term.)

The author reportedly notes that version 3 of the GPL did not exist when he published the code, additionally the author notes that even if there was a clause not to revoke, he was paid no consideration for such a forbearance of a legal right of his and thus said clause is not operative against him, the grantor, should it exist at all.

(Editor's note: GPL version 3 contains an explicit "no-revocation-by-grantor" clause, in addition to a term-of-years that the license is granted for. Both absent in version 2 of the GPL)

Are you actually posting 4/g/ threads to the LKML? lol, you fucking nutter, as if people didn't already totally disregard you for being an obnoxious wackjob.
Here's an idea, fake lawyer. Actually make a contribution to the Linux kernel, then rescind it, if you want to try to prove your point. Because nobody gives a shit about your little casino script, you pathetic eunuch.

Blatent honeypots Anonymous 05/10/2019 (Fri) 07:43:37 [Preview] No. 13316 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I stumbled across some chans while casually browsing and fapping by just following a few forum links. They are actually full on hardcore kid fucker sites, on the open web. Needless to say they are blatant honeypots. I've seen similar here spammed, the links are to obscure file upload sites which enforce google captcha.

I'm wondering, who is behind this shit? No pedo, except perhaps a literal retard, would be browsing bare ip with js enabled and fill out a google captcha to download that content so I doubt highly the links are legit. Whoever it is though is hosting that shit and uploading those images/clips. That's certainly illegal for the eye agencies. Russians maybe? I remember reading mentions of this on 8ch months back so they've been at it for a long while.

I have a coaxial cable with internet connection entering one part of my house attached to a modem, and then in another part that isn't connected to anything. Is there a way for me to convert it to ethernet with a modem/router/etc?
