Yet you keep on crawling back here time after time to waste your time in your persistently broken english. Nobody's really falling for your funny business. Go bitch and moan elsewhere but you know all too well that I can't stop you from destroying this place, you'll bypass it one way or another.

Since there was just no way of restoring the old flags, I've uploaded 8chan's custom flags on here except for three which was the ones that wasn't removed from the database error from awhile back. No more broken custom flags.

Discord is shit Anonymous 10/22/2018 (Mon) 02:28:19 [Preview] No. 12909 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Is there a Libre version of Discord that isn't so shit? It needs stuff like this:
>voice chat
>text chat
>Youtube and image embeds in text chat
>Free Software (Libre)
>you can host it on your own server
>you can make bots for it
>uses actual good encryption
>has a web interface and mobile app
>you don't have to have a mobile phone to register an account

matrix: https://matrix.org/blog/home/
Voice chat: yup
text chat: yup
youtube and image embeds: image embeds and and youtube previews.
free software: yup
own server: yup
permissions: Like some people are mods of rooms? If so, yes.
bots: yup. https://matrix.org/docs/projects/try-matrix-now.html
good encryption: there are E2E encrypted chats, and the protocol has been audited. Not sure how well it's implemented though.
web interface and mobile app: yup
no phone: yup

You could also use IRC or XMPP, but matrix is the most similar to discord.

I had a look and it looks great, but the voice chat is a problem.
I'm trying to get some people to migrate from Discord so I don't have to buy a prepaid sim card to create an account and give them all of my conversation data.
In other words, it can't compete with Discord voice chat rooms.
I don't think they have the attention span to use both this and Teamspeak; plus, Teamspeak is proprietary.

How to secure firefox forks post legacy Anonymous 10/22/2018 (Mon) 01:33:52 [Preview] No. 12908 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Icecat now no longer supports LEGACY EXTENTIONS. Pic related is some of the extentions that are mostly legacy now.
Is the new firefox basically a waste of time? Is palemoon and waterfox the only forks that still support legacy extentions?

Terry Davis memorial compilation webm Anonymous 09/30/2018 (Sun) 09:33:39 [Preview] No. 12898 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I want to make a memorial compilation of all his best moments in memorium. This needs to go here, the file size limit on 8ch make this more difficult to do there.

Lets upload and link content here to go into the compilation and let me know what you think the sequence should be and what if any background track.

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.

Been doing UGC for a test drive for some time now. The only irritations I've found so far:

1) No way to conveniently prevent automatic page refreshing.
2) Installing extensions is a bit of a hassle.
3) No non-M$ 32bit version

Only that last is really irksome. Why no 32bit version?

It also enforces tear off tabs with no way to disable. Something else I hate.

the addresses are effectively the same idea as i2p, hash of public key bundle. the cool part is that the public key bundle has a slot for vanity nonces.

i can put it on my git if you really want an i2p mirror

RISC-V desktop Anonymous 09/26/2018 (Wed) 17:35:42 [Preview] No. 12897 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Western Digital published a guide to transform the RISC-V HiFive Unleashed board into a desktop:

SiFive completely open sourced their bootloader:

This means Coreboot can now have more development on SiFi platforms:
The usage of Linux kernel as a payload (instead of bloated UEFI stuff) is going good too with the project LinuxBoot:
Check this (very good) talk:

There's still some blobs, though. The GPU is not open hardware, although some project have open ISA (maybe in the next years):

P2P web browsing via websites served and shared on individual nodes:
users can create their own websites and host them from their own computers/servers
users can upload and share other's websites on their own computers/servers
self serviced websites are manually named *but will generate a random entropy hash within the url, example:
node://7bv45ix0/8ch.net or node://c334o96y/endchan.xyz
*the random entropy hash prevents individuals from creating and overriding other established websites
endless domain creation: .com, .org, .info, .onion, .rebel, .on, .geek ... et al (infinite)
browser can access HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, Zeronet, Beaker, eMule/eDonkee and various obscure networks.
browser is enabled for users to share files with others, creating decentralized P2P file sharing
the browser would have its own built-in decentralized search engine similar to YaCy that can pull up any content found
high standard end-to-end encryption would be active by default for all P2P connections
browser has a lightweight bit-torrent client built-in
onion routing is not mandated but the option would be allowed within the browser
I2P routing would also be an option for users
Dust and IPFS could be utilized in the browser for further anonymity and resilient decentralization.

You want an internet suite stuffed into one browser?
That's sorta something what Seamonkey and ChromeOS do and dozens of failed projects before them did.
Which is not really good. Having interoperability and data exchange between different gui applications is cool, but having your browser to do all the work is asking for a trouble with too much attack surface. I am also pretty sure, you can have all this shit like accessing zeronet, irc, tor and i2p, download torrents and email with set of web browser addons.
You should also understand that hosting stuff from home computer puts drawbacks on availability compared to a remote VPS in a professional datacenter, or a dedicated server in your basement with nig-rigged car battery UPS which not everyone is eager to invest in.
>the random entropy hash prevents
You just came up with some useless bullshit. Look at how onion, eepsite, gnunet and cjdns domains are resolved and generated. It should not only be a "random hash", but also act as a public encryption key or public key hash without reliability on someone's DNS servers.
The main problem of "le decentralized internet" is how easy it would be for external powerful actor to remove pieces of it, and remove them not only for one group of users, but for everyone. Let's say you live in small corrupt country and post on facebook. Your country's government wants to remove your posts from facebook, but until those break facebook's tos or facebook has big-money business in your country, they don't care. And what would your country do then, ddos facebook or block it? The latter is feasible, but blocks can be avoided, the data still exists on Facebook's servers and is available for those who put much effort in it.
Now say again, you live in Ancapistan Enterprizes Real Estate. A society of decentralized Internetz and such. You host your blog from home, a small single board server and a 1 gbit unlimited connection, pretty nice isn't it? One day you post something bad about McFacebook corporation on your blog. Automated web crawlers of YaCy search engine detect wrongthink and it triggers McFacebook CEO personally. What happens next? They simply DDOS your weak 1gigabit-wide channel to the point when your ISP, or datacenter where your VPS is hosted disconnects your server for consuming too much traffic and blackholes all requests coming for your address, your server is already inaccessible at this moment. It's done, McFacebook corporation completed it's mission and eliminated you quickly. What would you do next? You either go to your ISP or some decentralized CDN provider and ask them to implement a DDOS protection, i.e. you have to find someone who will host your shit for free on pure enthusiasm (ipfs and webtorrent) or for thousands of shekels (Cloudflare) or in exchange for datamining (Facebook). Now you get the same modern Internet and web, where you have to host your important information on a big datacenter with wide bandwidth, distribute content over wide network of CDNs and gateway proxies.

Just similar to torrents. There is no need to have a full copy, giving endchan as example you could only have /tech/ and a few threads from other boards. You just seed when your pc is on anyway, that should not be expensive. Alternatively some retarded cryptocurrency stuff can be added.
