Hydrus Network General #5 Anonymous Board volunteer 09/14/2022 (Wed) 22:07:14 No. 9763 [Reply] [Last]
This is a thread for releases, bug reports, and other discussion for the hydrus network software. The hydrus network client is an application written for Anon and other internet-fluent media nerds who have large image/swf/webm collections. It browses with tags instead of folders, a little like a booru on your desktop. Advanced users can share tags and files anonymously through custom servers that any user may run. Everything is free, privacy is the first concern, and the source code is included with the release. Releases are available for Windows, Linux, and macOS. I am the hydrus developer. I am continually working on the software and try to put out a new release every Wednesday by 8pm EST. Past hydrus imageboard discussion, and these generals as they hit the post limit, are being archived at >>>/hydrus/ . If you would like to learn more, please check out the extensive help and getting started guide here: https://hydrusnetwork.github.io/hydrus/

>>9929 >>mass-exported 40k pairings from a booru >How did you do that? I imagine it depends on the booru, but I'll attach the one I have for e621. I forget if I wrote this from scratch or copied the base from somewhere but you just run these in python (input API creds), then import the resultant .txt files into hydrus: https://pastebin.com/bxDC9Znm https://pastebin.com/c70bJzKn https://pastebin.com/e9MwrRG7 At least for e621, generating the pairings is quick, and importing them into hydrus via .txt is quick. Doing the tag sync takes like half an hour but not too bad. Removing the pairs via show all -> highlight ~10k pairs -> delete is slow (10k at a time works fine for me), and at least in the latest version of hydrus it seems to cause some sort of UI error that hides all the pairs when it does this, but clicking apply works as intended anyway. Then reopen the window and do it again.
>>9930 The third link is for Siblings, not Parents - forgot to change the title. It's just a copy of the 2nd link with the mode changed. API documentation is here: https://e621.net/help/api and you can do interactive searches e.g. here: https://e621.net/tag_aliases Idk if this sort of functionality is normal for other boorus but it's pretty easy for e621.

Operation Download And Conquer Anonymous 10/02/2021 (Sat) 13:51:54 No. 5546 [Reply] [Last]
Given how majority of the internet's audio and video services are provided by Google, thanks to Youtube, the purpose of this operation is to loosen the death-grip that has taken hold. This process will only require that you have a steady internet connection and (Advisably) 100 GB of free space. Here is the process: Step 1 Download the latest versions of FFMpeg and Youtube-DL, and put all the programs into the same folder: http://ffmpeg.org/ https://ytdl-org.github.io/youtube-dl/index.html Step 2 Create an account to any video sites that you wish to distribute videos on. Here are some of the more well-known alternatives, as well as some recommended sites: AfreecaTV: https://www.afreecatv.com/ Bitchute: https://www.bitchute.com/ BitTube: https://bittube.tv/ D.tube: https://d.tube/ Dailymotion: https://www.dailymotion.com/ LBRY: https://lbry.com/ NicoNico: https://www.nicovideo.jp/ Rumble: https://rumble.com/

>>9692 What is there to think about? Where the fuck is that dude's foot? And his hands? The hooves look weird, too. This algorithm definitely shows some kind of "understanding" of what's being asked for, but it doesn't have a "model" (if you will) of what's being asked for. The astronaut has no feet, no hands, and three arms. To general intelligence, it's recognizable, but on close scrutiny, it falls apart. What the fuck kind of Lovecraftian horror am I looking at? I'm probably missing things about the horse, but am too ignorant of horses to comment on them. It's got a way to go. I'm not really into AI programming, but could we at least make an adversarial model so that the result has to match a model of the target? Our three-armed, no-handed, no-footed astronaut wouldn't be generated, because that doesn't match a model of a human? Just a thought, but it's probably stupid shit, cause I don't know shit for AI.

How hard would it be to make a functioning imageboard (or textboard) using IPFS and OrbitDB/GUN, or Hypercore/Dat? It would be immune to deplatforming by hosting providers (and DNS providers depending on how it's addressed). https://ipfs.io/ https://orbitdb.org/ https://github.com/amark/gun / https://gun.eco/ https://hypercore-protocol.org/ (formally https://www.datprotocol.com/) There's two chans on zeronet but you have to make an ID to use them

Right is obtained over IPFS (except for the board name and description which are obtained over HTTP for now) and the left is the traditionally served HTML page from the central server. As I'm doing this a lot of the quality-of-life stuff that should be handled is becoming more clear.

The pci_disable_device function is defined in the source file of the kernel pci module. Let the pci_disable_device function be a working parameter of the kernel pci module.

Advanced Untraceable Hidden Camera System Anonymous 05/14/2022 (Sat) 19:29:00 No. 8443 [Reply]
If you were to build a hidden camera system, how would you go about it? I want to build such a system but don't have the skills to put it all together. I do have a few specs in mind and would enjoy your input on how to make it a reality. In terms of applications of such a device... Think the worst case scenario's with the highest level of deniability and near impossible traceability. Even if the device were discovered, stored files would be inaccessible, upstream intermediaries and hosts would be impossible to access. This device can be used as a trail cam, nanny cam, or secondary security cam. This can also be used for spying, like a corporate espionage cam, bathroom/dorm room cam, hotel/airbnb cam, etc. The use, whether for good or evil, is left to the user. The main point is that if properly constructed and properly installed, it would be extremely difficult to detect and likewise to determine who installed it and where it uploaded to. * Camera separate from main system to allow for flexibility in mounting * Camera should be 'pinhole' type to avoid detection (0.5 mm or smaller) * Camera should provide crisp image (highest quality possible given size limitations) * Control unit OS should be open source * Control unit file system must be sufficient to temporarily store recorded media until transferred and verified * Control unit file system should be encrypted * Image and video files should be individually encrypted on device * Media is stored only until transferred and transfer verified * Media is transferred off to secured site, preferably a file drop site over Tor or I2P (the latter preferred, due to file volumes)

Reading your post and I had come up with something similar a few years back. Adding my notes below but I dont have the skills to put it together. Kind of wish there was a commercially available system with the same security measures. There is a huge demand for devices like this in some places. I dont condone it but in South Korea these are very often used in womens bathrooms (so much so that in Seoul, there are teams that check the bathrooms daily). This would also be good for deployment as a trail cam or security cam. In any role I can see a benefit in separating the device from the owner. If found even a thorough forensic analysis should not provide any useful information that would aid in identifying whomever placed it. Hardware: - Raspberry Pi or Arduino - Camera module - Cellular data module - IR motion sensor (or software based?) - Tamper-resistant self-destruct module (simple, voltage/current driven, massive power surge) - Power source and backup battery - Enclosure Software: - Base OS

Almost every normalfaggot internet service requiring working, hard to change, much more personally identifiable than plain IP address, phone number to register. And to periodically provide as "random checks" to keep working and not lock you out of your data without prior warning is normal and widely accepted business practice in Muttland as of 2020's. Requiring ID card or SSN to register for such services would be literal commiefascism and would never fly in Muttland, normalfags in revolt. How did it get this absurdly cucked in Land of the Free.

Because the vast mass of people are lazy and/or ignorant, and the remaining people who are neither are either engineers or market drivers. Engineers keep the lights on and typically are not independently wealthy; market drivers reinvest the technology and science back into the market to create a captive market as services (non-ethical software). Furthermore, a majority of the front-running FOSS projects of the last decade have been co-opted by FAGMANN companies or destroyed by entryism by Rob Pike-alikes with awful fucking ideas. A few neckbeards keep any sort of FREE AS IN FREEDOM web alive by self-hosting and writing good notes, but this is seriously less than 1% of people and it will never tap into the auto-amplifying feedback loops which market mechanisms work on. Consider the number of people developing "open source software" on iBads/fagbooks working for tech firms, vs the number of people willing to demand FOSS software and actualize on it: the number of engineers willing to pay the actual price of freedom (lower convenience, lower interoperability, more time investment, actual money for hosting fees) is low and will always remain low. One can do their part by refusing to buy into it, by instead choosing to self-host services, and to make our methods known, but it only really goes so far. Ethical software will remain esoteric knowledge (as will understanding of computers, oddly enough for the same reasons.)

Fuck phone numbers. There was a time about 20 years ago when people thought it would not be needed in a few years, after evertything went online. It was a sign of early adopter to not have boomercell any more. Now it has become a pseudo-ID card to tie your real identity to your normalfag online activities, and de facto requirement that sure as fuck isn't going anywhere. At least I still live in a region where anonymous prepaid is still allowed, for now (outside US). Do americans have anonymous prepaids / burner phones any more? It's a tiny proportion of countries that allow it by now. Vast majority requires you to present real life ID to activate a prepaid subscription.

Use electron beam physics to make your own 3D Metal Printer. Support this open source project Anonymous 04/05/2022 (Tue) 19:58:55 No. 8038 [Reply]
Hello! My name is Agustin Cruz. I'm making a 3D Metal Printer for making parts with titanium and other metals. Is a low cost, Open source project, so everyone can make their own 3D Metal Printer. This project have an extreme affinity in philosophy with Monero and would not be possible without your help. Making 3D printers affordable can help decentralize production of various mass produced items. The goal is to make 3D Metal Printing more affordable to the general public, hospitals, small institutions, organizations and companies around the world. Specifically for developing and low income countries. This project fills a gap that no open hardware successfully fills. 3D Metal Printing is an impactful tool. Making it more accessible will democratize science, engineering and empower people. This low-cost hardware will be able to accelerate innovations in and lower barriers to scientific research. This printer uses an electron beam to selectively melt each layer of metal powder, causing the powder particles to fuse together. After one layer is complete, the build platform is moved down one layer in height. The re-coater comes in again with a fresh layer of powder, and the electron beam starts to induce the fusion of powder particles, causing the new layer to form. This process is repeated until the entire part is finished, making a solid metal part. This is what I do fulltime. Doing all this takes a lot of time and effort. Now the project is opening to the community inside a crowdfunding model. The design, tests, updates, will be shared so I can receive some support and continue working 100% in this project I made a Patreon, if you want to support my work: https://www.patreon.com/3dmetalprinter I also created a Bitcoin and Monero address. They are also in the Patreon site.

It also has a set of pogo pins on the back that exposes an I2C bus. Charging is done through USB-C which also doubles as display out and OTG. >muh shady company Pin64 is not a company as such. It's a community run project where an entrepreneur from HK supplies hardware, and the community gets to buy it at very low cost and do whatever they want.
