Anyone else excited about the coming full realisation of the GNU OS? Soon GuixSD will ship with Hurd and the original GNU vision will be a usable system.

After that all they need is all the software using GNU licenses and RMS can die fulfilled. If they then rewrite everything in scheme RMS will become a saint in heaven.

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.

Imagining a future for vectors Anonymous 04/11/2018 (Wed) 16:50:52 [Preview] No. 12598 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I have some hope that there could be a return to restart developing computing for vector graphics. It seems a bit counterintuitive how kids these days got 30 years of raster display tech development only to complain that VR doesn't work because they can still see the pixels in anything under a gorillion-k displays.

Perhaps in the future a mobile device could project laser-based optically scalable graphics on any wall, while a secondary monitor may simulate it in rasters when needed, but I'm more interested in how we can possibly get there from the current state of the industry where raster screens are so ubiquitous. Can anything as mildly dangerous as early CRTs even legally make it into the market this day and age? Can a dedicated vector graphics card survive the russian scalpers, if such a device is even possible without it's own OS?

Even if it's vector they would still see the pixels, because all the technology was build in this concept, a matrix of square dots. We would need to rebuild the display tech to fit the "meta-model" of vector graphics first and I have no idea how we could do that. Maybe holographic, as the other anon said, but that's too futuristic for our primitive society. Also, holographics would have density issues, as external light would not offer enough contrast for the human vision.
Maybe look into bioengeneering would be better, like a brain-computer interface that can send signals to human optics or something.
Again, too futuristic, and there's no research investiments enough for that. Maybe there's some guys on Cambridge, Berkeley or Stanford, for meh, not really.

>Going backwards in technology is not an option.
>too futuristic
I'm happy to see "too big to fail" ideology coming from the consumer rather than the government, it only shows that culture is being cohesive and bailouts have the blessing of the public. Going by the success of 3DS and Shovel Knight, some of those allegations are patently false, however. The amount of fun is clearly scalable to the reach of the production, while lowering prices are much more heavily influenced by increasing the reach to secondary and tertiary markets. To put it short, first people to buy Shovel Knight were happy to pay $100 in Kickstarter, the second people $20 in early adoption and now $30 on Nintendo Switch. Calling this "unaccepatble" is clearly ideological and false in real world terms.

A game as much fun as Shovel Knight is produceable in primitive technology that resembles the early Vectrex, with the addition of modern computing power. On the other hand, such a device is liable to crash and burn as well like the Virtual Boy. These are however mere indicators and not gospel. A viable new vector technology would need a few bottom lines fulfilled, one is to be able to mimic raster graphics in an inferior way the same way raster graphics are able to mimic vectors in an inferior way, where they get pixelated but are not unuseable. One other is to support an universal standard of vectorization so that any method of greating a vector algorithm is transferable directly into the device without going through the process of re-encoding the same collection of shapes in a different way to no further benefit.

I do not imagine to pointlessly throw out raster graphics just to accommodate vectors. What would need to happen is to introduce another element of interface next to raster visuals and audio, which are already succesfully merged into one experience, so we can enjoy an effective use of vectors, rasters and audio. This is not an unforeseen concept, as Apple did introduce a touch interface even though we already have a good touch interface in mouse and keyboard, and Wii was succesfully sold on motion controls despite being clearly inferior to the single-plane motion control found on the mouse.

While it's important to first discover a viabilty for pure vector displays, or else well never get to the point where the following is possible, I imagine there comes a point where a screen monitor can display both vector graphics and raster graphics. How I imagine this to work is that there should be a layer of screen that can produce rasters, and onto that a vectorized line can be projected, from a board that is flat but can mimic tubular monitors. Similar technology already exists where touch screens can receive input in analog shapes and digitize it in raster form. Also rasters in see-through materials already exist in a primitive form, that's another thing that is absolutely a step "backwards" yet plenty of hard money sees potential in it.

The way I imagine it it might be something that recognizes which colors are intended as lines and which are intended as solid colors, and the graphics controller chip within the monitor itself would know what lines to produce in scalable rasters while the rest of the colors would get as pixelated as the definition allows, but perhaps be written over by any vector lines drawn over the jagged edges. It's highly hypothetical until the early forms of flat vector displays exist to start indicating what direction the technology can possibly go to, depending on the exact workings.

What exists now is at least QR codes, which can mimic vector equations if being put up to task. I can hardly imagine a QR code reader doing 10 000 calculations every second, though, if they were to perform the task of a vector display controller chip.

I don't quite get how your Shovel Knight example ties into the ideas of your first paragraph. Are you accusing us of preferring the status quo; are you suggesting that older technology actually does have a place in the contemporary world, and that it is not true that the only direction possible to go in is strictly forward? I'm having trouble understanding your post, but don't feel obliged to spell it out.

quick response for now: I'm not talking about those cases where no https version exists.

Anonymous 04/10/2018 (Tue) 23:48:44 [Preview] No.12596 del
The more security you have, the more layers of obfuscation you have, the more points of failure, the more maintenance required. Some security is necessary for some privacy at a certain layer to deliver certain private information to other systems or people using the same protocols, but it's just to assure a certain level of communication that one trusts and feels that it is necessary to hide private information from those that look for it. Online privacy is information that's to be separated from the public that you don't want to be accessed by the public but only a secure connection between one or more people that nobody else knows about. If those that you privately contact chose to betray you, they can leak confidential private information to the public or to others privately. One can use a secure channel but say nothing of private confidential information. The front end of a website is what's publicly accessible which should never have private confidential information that shouldn't be publicly accessed. Security is a means for privacy but is not privacy in and of itself. Using a VPN for example hides what you do from your ISP but it doesn't hide what you from the ISP of what the VPN uses, so even securing the VPN connection doesn't mean privacy, just a layer of security. Let's say the FBI goes to your home and asks you to decrypt your hard drive or else they'll break your bones. You are the ultimate key to all of your data that's at least accessible by you. Multi signing is a higher level of security, but if some secret or public organization gets the private keys of all of the people responsible for its creation, it's compromised. Privacy deals with trust management which uses security but is not merely security. True anonymity probably doesn't truly exist online, only obfuscation of identity is real.

Just because some websites have https doesn't mean it's properly implemented https and so doesn't redirect its users to its https site but instead its http site because that's what the people running the site wants you to use their site the way they want you to. If you refuse, go complain to the people running that website without accessing it's http website somehow. Poorly implemented https sites are all over the place, and if they really properly set up https, they will redirect all http requests to https because most people that set up https tend to also care about SEO scores.

Yeah, I stand by my response here >>12595

I'm not saying never share or visit HTTP links. I'm saying that HTTPS is better than HTTP when available (and that means, taking into account also your countercase, you aren't just being redirected away from the HTTPS site). Your response doesn't say anything against that.

On using a VPN, you need to distinguish between using a home VPN and commercial VPN. Commercial VPN is better for privacy than a home VPN when you trust the provider, because they give you an IP Address that isn't your own.
HTTPS is better than HTTP because the data is encrypted, can't be easily snooped on.

So, obviously, HTTPS with VPN would be best from a privacy and security standpoint, but this isn't what I was talking about.

Alright, alright. Going off your conception of this then, let's look again at your setup.
>I use HTTPS everywhere, noscript (manually re-configured for my browsing habits), Random Agent Spoofer, Tin Foil (well some of the options, not in full mode), disabled most chromium vulnerabilities with about:config and also use a private VPN (w/ encryption), and I use a Linux OS... am I safe at this point?

There's some websites that improperly loads from a http site into the https front end, not truly secure, AKA: mixed content. Websites that are slower when using https instead of it's regular http site has more often than not mixed content not from same origin.

Your so called argument has to take into multiple variables, it was a loaded question and so there's no simple yes or no answer to it and so there's no definitive "yes" or "no", it must consider all of the variables, while your loaded question was used in response to my previous points like how the ISP (any ISP) will know what links you've clicked and the various concerns in using a third party between you, the web host, and the domain host (if they're not one and the same) that can at any moment revoke certificates willingly or unwillingly from the web browser side or the certificate issuers which sometimes try to mess with the certificates used by the web browser, making certain websites inaccessible that way.

If an https site has the locked green padlock it's safer than https site without the padlock. https://www.whynopadlock.com/

Even assuming a website has some A+ score on observatory.mozilla.org (which mind you, my own personal website has an A+ score), absolutely any layer of security isn't guaranteed privacy. Your nit picking on about me not specifying specific types of VPNs is avoiding the core failure of you needing to trust protocols upon protocols yet my point is that any layer of security opens up more variable points of failure that you merely assume that you can circumvent before it is exploited when really that can't be done, nobody knows the future. Securing the most direct path from point A to B is better than securing point A-Z, while there's more trust in the information the less filters it has to go through. Have you ever played telephone or chinese whispers? The more people that have to pass the message verbally, the more distorted the original message becomes until it's totally indecipherable at the end of the chain.

All I'm saying is that no single protocol should ever gain 100% of your trust, neither one or the other, so everyone is wrong if they answer yes or no to the whole trusting https over http thing because that's not how it works in real life. I would trust a letter with a tamper evident seal on the envelope more than I trust any protocol that connects me to the internet.

define "app" Anonymous 03/21/2018 (Wed) 15:40:25 [Preview] No. 12507 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Is app or even application a term that has a standardized definition, if so then what? Meaning that whatever platform I use to run "an app", I can trust that means the task being run has certain universal qualities that define it from other executables. My understanding of computing is a very poor outdated mix of dad logic and grandma logic and all this marketing shit doesn't do me any favors. When an "app" can be nothing more than a glorified interface to a program that's already always running, even on top of programs that are already only being run on an OS, I wouldn't want to be one to explain this shit straight to a next generation who have to unlearn all this training wheels garbage.

As i understand that term came with smartphones and popularization of mobile apps. An app on a smartphone is basically a webpage adjusted for mobile use (twitter, google docs, ebay). And since we started to call all of those services "apps" - because of smartphones - we now call everything an "app". So today you can't go wrong with saying something's an app, be it a webpage, executable, mobile app or something else.

And acording to wikipedia, that's not wrong:
-Mobile app, software designed to run on smartphones and other mobile devices
-Application, software that causes a computer to perform tasks for computer users
-Web application or web app, software designed to run inside a web browser

"Microsoft have changed their terms of service so that they can monitor any of your personal content, including the files on your PC, while using their products or services and if they deem it offensive they can take that content and their products/services away from you and ban you! If you happen to have an Xbox or have bought PC games from the Microsoft Store and are logged into your Microsoft account on any device while committing your "crime" you can be banned from Xbox Live and have all your downloaded games and any credit that's still in your account taken away!

But it gets worse. This applies to all Microsoft products and services. So therefore Windows itself! I think I have already been a victim, probably due to posting here, as recently my Windows 10 key was revoked out of the blue. I contacted Microsoft and they told me my key was no longer valid but outright refused to tell me why. So I had to buy Windows 10 again. I didn't buy it direct from them of course. Please post if this has happened to you very recently too.

I'm pretty scared about what's coming. They want us off the internet and I think this is how they're going to get many people. They're going to just shutdown our Windows on the basis of us breaking their new terms of service. What if ISPs are next?"

OP comment:

First off, no one should be using Windows 10. If you like Windows get an older one like Windows 2000, Vista or XP and make sure you turn OFF all automatic updates in the settings. Make sure you do not leave it online 24/7 either (leaving the OS online when not in use makes it much more vulnerable). There are also programs out there you can install that will completely remove all auto-updates for Windows if you are too lazy to change the settings.

If you want to switch to Linux you can install "Wine" and run Windows executives right from your Linux OS. Depending on which OS you partition (such as Q4OS) this will mimick an older version of Windows. Q4OS is what I recommend because you can install Wine and the OS replicates Windows XP, looking almost exactly the same!

Second, which is VERY important, users should be using a private VPN service in this day and age. No reason not to. Get off your lazy ass, buy a cheap private VPN (these can cost as low as $30 PER YEAR), and shield yourself by encrypting your communications and spoofing your IPs. Its easy and even us boomers can learn how to do it, I did.

Third: always have physical offline backups of any of your important files (this includes ISOs of the OS you use, software you may use and any media or other files you deem valuable).

I'm not surprised that things have gotten to this point. While I agree with you that using Windows 10 is stupid, and indeed it has never not been a poor decision from a standpoint of a daily driver, I disagree that Windows XP is the only niche operating system one should consider having installed. I suspect it might be more a matter of taste, as you are much older than I am; I prefer the look and feel of Windows 7 more than XP, and I'm sure many others feel the same way. While much more difficult and less worthwhile these days, it's still possible to get a Windows 7 installation without the botnet backports from 10 if you didn't have it installed already. Nevertheless, using it as a daily driver would be ill-advised, due to the lack of security updates that must be dealt with in order to avoid the spyware.

On the necessity of a VPN, I think it depends on what one is doing. If you're a heavy-/pol/ user, you should avoid visiting links to sensitive material non-anonymized, lest you put a target on your back. We aren't at that point yet, I don't think, where simply visiting Prism-Break will put you on a priority list. It depends on what "layer" you're active in, so to speak, whether measures like a paid VPN are worth the effort and the money. If you want to avoid getting snooped on while using public wifi, that's a different matter, and one where having a home VPN makes a lot of sense.

For offline backups of media, I have nothing really to say against. If you haven't heard of it, check out youtube-dl, which is a command line application for downloading video and audio from streaming websites. It seems like the old video downloaders have stopped working, so this is a final option, which will work for nobody knows how much longer.

Finally, on switching to GNU/Linux, there's concern that distros like Fedora or Ubuntu are botnet as well. Not to the extent of Windows, but still adware or spyware, or otherwise introduces insecurities into your computing. If there were any good novice systemd-free distributions, I'd recommend them, but I didn't see anything worth installing. Admittedly, I'm on Fedora right now myself, for the time being, while I learn enough about GNU/Linux to roll my own installation.

No. If you want to transmit your cleartext queries over the internet, use the shortest path.
This means use your ISP's DNS server for DNS, and don't use proxies for HTTP/e-mail if for some reason you need to transmit sensitive data through it.

Us privacy aware folks are using:
- DNSCrypt
- and/or Tor and remote DNS resolution
- and/or hosts file
- and/or increasing DNS cache time both inside the OS and in the browser
- and/or our own DNS server on LAN

LynxChan 2.0: Magnus StephenLynx 04/07/2018 (Sat) 13:31:31 [Preview] No. 12551 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
LynxChan is an imageboard engine I started developing in 2015 with performance and flexibility in mind. It now powers several chans, with some having a good amount of traffic, like http://mewch.net and http://endchan.xyz

LynxChan 2.0 has entered it's beta with a stable release scheduled for 19/05.
It brings easily the biggest changes ever made in the project's nearly 3 years of existence, having completely changed templating and caching.
Now offering around 5 times better performance when serving pages and 50 times better performance when building pages it is trully deserving of a major version bump.
Along with these optimizations it includes the following features:

Links to board staff on board moderation page.
Page with details for media files, including a list of posts that use the file.
Implemented "remember me" on logins.
Thread's bump order is adjusted when replies are deleted.
Setting to configure the cache expiration of static files.
Optional headers and footers on pages.
Setting to completely hide unindexed boards.
E-mail confirmation.
Terminal command to change account's password.
E-mail notifications of reports made to content you can moderate.
