So, you have to compile things you want sometimes.

>>5043 >>5044 I fine if it's not solely made in America because, to be quite honest, we don't have the mining and production facilities that most Asia countries have established over the past couple decades (Partially because, even with companies getting away with paying employees almost nil in those countries, government regulations are a bitch that's holding the rest of the production line back from being actually profitable at a reasonable price for the customer). However, I will take what I can, so my baseline is just companies who are staying out of West Taiwan. Overall, I'm fine with paying the $300, but I'm just still shopping around.

Hydrus Network General #2 Anonymous Board volunteer 04/20/2021 (Tue) 22:48:35 No. 3626 [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/

>>5028 If you right-click the 'file log' button on the page, you can say 'show all files on a new page', which will restore the file order. Then, hit ctrl+a on the unsorted thumbs and then ctrl+r to remove, and then ctrl+a on the new page you made with correctly sorted, and drag and drop the thumbs to the original page. Sorry for the inconvenience. >>5036 Yes, sorry, it looks like it. Sorry for the trouble. >>5049 >>5041 If you boot hydrus and it is empty and has the 'hey, looks like the first time you ran the program' popup, then what has likely happened is the database location has been changed. Nothing is broken or missing, but you'll want to redirect it back to the correct location. This could happen if your shortcut says a database location, as --db_dir here: https://hydrusnetwork.github.io/hydrus/help/launch_arguments.html But then somehow your shortcut got scrubbed/replaced, or you ran the exe raw without the shortcut. It could also happen if your install directory suddenly went read-only. Then hydrus would not be able to use the default directory of install_dir/db, and would default to somewhere in your UserDir.

Is it possible to add tags with the url downloader based on the order they're downloaded or their url? I mainly just want to add page tags to pixiv files.

hey does anyone have a way to access vimadventures for free Anonymous 07/27/2021 (Tue) 09:49:18 No. 4946 [Reply]
im tryna learn vim but do not want to pay a large amount
2 posts omitted.
>>4963 And you should really refer to the vim tutor for further info.
>>4946 whats wrong with emacs
>>4946 Do what the other anons said, just type 'vimtutor' in your terminal and do the interactive tutorial. It will teach you in half an hour all that these soy-dripping websites do for free, plus you can run in on a potato without internet access and you don't get your browser data harvested. After that you can start using Vim and read the user manual bit by bit. Don't try to read it back to cover, read a bit, use Vim a bit, read a bit, use Vim a bit, and so on. To access the manual type ':help' in Vim. The manual has roughly to parts: the actual user manual and the reference documentation. The reference goes into detail and is intended for people who know what they are doing. Read the actual user manual instead. >>4963 I find these video counter-productive. Just do the tutorial yourself. The video format is better suited for short "tips" style videos, but YouTubers have to make 10+ minute long videos for that sweet advertising money.

Tor Discussion Anonymous 06/15/2020 (Mon) 04:52:53 No. 449 [Reply] [Last]
So, what's so bad about Tor? >it's a honeypot Not really, I have done extensive research into this and the only people caught on it were dumb fucks who made OpSec mistakes. Plus, the only people championing this point are schizos who use VPN services or set up their own VPN, or even just use their plain ISP-given IP address, all of which are way riskier than using Tor. If you're concerned about onion links being honeypots, then set up your own. It's one of the easiest things in the world to do. >it's slow Fair enough. >a lot of sites block it Yeah, and a lot of sites are fags anyways, a lot of sites are also using ReCatapha and require phone verification and use Cloudflare or AWS. Sites have been against privacy for a long time and are banning VPNs too. >it's operated by sjws&trannies Literally everything is now, including VPN services and ISPs, there is no escape unless you want to fully disconnect from the internet and live in a cabin in the woods, which considering people are still using this site, I don't see happening. Also, the directors are known privacy-advocates. >firefox Firefox is rapidly becoming a shit browser for privacy, yes, Chromium is worse, "Ungoogled" Chromium is still Chrome garbage, same with Brave, alternative Firefox builds are usually outdated, and Opera is blatantly spyware. Meanwhile, Tor usually strips out all the tracking that Firefox tries to push in new releases. >relays and nodes operated by governments Which is more of a reason to get more people using Tor so more people can set up nodes and relays aside from government interference. Not opening this to start an argument or a bash on how bad Tor is or just to simply praise Tor, I want a discussion, because most points about Tor being bad for privacy are easily debunked and usually only used by schizos and I want to ensure my personal privacy.

>>1506 of course they are anti-government. As long as the current government isnt the one they want. Take a look at the newly formed DPR state that was formed in captured Ukraine and youll see the people there talking the usual anti-government talk until Russia took over and now they mysteriously went silent
>>455 Exactly. Not sure why people don't understand this. sure one country might try and block it. but everyone wont.
Ironically my experience with Tor sometimes is that it get less blocked compared to a VPN, I would say it's at least better than it because, there is no profitable company that could get their service shut down if they don't work with the feds.

Password Managers Anonymous 06/01/2021 (Tue) 17:14:56 No. 4278 [Reply]
Ok it's time to get a password manager. It has to be open source, free and without any cloud crap because I trust nobody. Which PM do you anons use? Which KeepAss is better? There's the OG, X and XC now. Is there any way to extend my PM to android manually without any company getting their hands on my database? Let's discuss.
1 post omitted.
>>4283 This is what I use too. Desktop integration with rofi-pass is great, pass-otp manages OTP nicely, and the Password Store android app works great, too, and supports autofill in a lot of apps.
I still use kpcli. There's probably something better out there but I'm too lazy to switch at this point.

Anyone able to have a purely JACK audio setup working? Of what was actually able to use JACK for the audio server it was fantastic, but I always ran into the issue of not enough of what I used would support it. Meanwhile everything adopted pulseaudio in a heartbeat, which I always see errors in dmesg for.
>>3363 I don't think enough software supports jack to get pure only jack setup to work. closest setup I've seen is using alsa loopback devices with apulse.
>>3336 >It seems like gentoo maintainers have been going on a killing spree with anything that goes unupdated for a year. even if it really doesn't need updates. Talking from the future here, but LXDE didn't get removed. That said, being unmaintained upstream isn't just about getting new features, it's about getting support when code eventually rots and becomes unable to compile/function properly on modern systems. LXDE currently requires very few patches, but I'm sure if a bug or two appear that aren't trivial to solve, they'll consider it for removal again. You're usually free to contribute to keeping it alive, if you can fix the issues. Same shit happened with opentmpfiles, as the latest version had significant bugs and had to be masked, nobody stepped up for over a year to either fix those or release a new upstream version, so they decided it wasn't worth keeping around.

Hello does anyone have cock.li invite

you'll have to convince me you aren't a fed if you want the invite.
>>4929 why does it matter if he's a fed or not? the only reason for invite links is that it makes it more cumbersome to create spam email addresses. the whole philosophy of a service like cock.li is to treat everything as if it were compromised, and therefore everybody's already a fed
>>4929 I'm not a fed, but it doesn't matter anyways since the feds are already surveilling Cock.li

/p2p/ General Anonymous 05/06/2020 (Wed) 02:13:46 No. 23 [Reply] [Last]
Welcome to /p2p/, the dedicated peer-to-peer thread for /tech/ and the bunker for /t/orrentfags. What is P2P? Peer-to-Peer technologies allow decentralized networks to share data. They can be used to bypass oppressive government regulations on speech or to download the latest seasonal anime. What are my options? First and foremost is BitTorrent, a common protocol where files are split into chunks which are then shared via swarm, which works to get everyone a copy. There are many BitTorrent clients out there, and everyone has a personal preference. Some are owned my corporations and full of spyware. It's recommended you use something open source, like Deluge or qBitTorrent. Won't my internet get shut down? If your ISP is cucked then they might, but thankfully there is a solution. Use a VPN! Don't trust any VPNs that advertise all over the place. What is IPFS?

>>1788 i went from Win address to GNU address and finally i settled for the MAC address since its the superior distro. One day GNUtards will wake up
Has anyone already tried to get shingetsu/saku (p2p/federated imageboard) running over i2p/TOR? It doesn't seem to work straight-up with the standard tunnels, and modifying the code to set the proxy in urllib.request.Request fucks up something else, presumably with the HTTP requests, so peering stops working for TOR and straight up stops the entire thing from running for I2P. Anyone solved this already or am I the first to try this?
>>392 I like BiglyBT's searching capabilities. It lets me scrape and search the DHT, and has RSS support. I think you can use it to search trackers in the same way as QB but I never have to. I just search the DHT, and if I get no results I can set up a "subscription" which just repeats that search and stores the results while I'm idle. There's also a swarm merge plugin that does this automatically with files you're downloading so if one of your torrents only has X% availability it automatically suggests other torrent files it found that have the same file in it. So you might end up finding 2 torrents with 50% and merging them together to fix the swarm for both of them. It also ships with i2p support out of the box if you ask for it, which means extending those searches beyond the clearnet. I never stop seeding my torrents but I stop seeding them on the clearnet at 2.0, and I'm sure others do the same. Among a ton of other shit. It's one of the oldest clients and its modular so a bunch of plugins exist around automation, search, etc. >>4458 I host a node but honestly never use the thing for search. I think I spend more time looking at its cool statistics graphics more than anything else. It's a good idea though so I contribute my disk and bandwidth to it for now.

>>4702 >>4703 How is refusing to use "lefty-made" open source software for all eternity going to rob you of your rights? You know exactly what they are doing with it (because it's open source) and therefore you can just stop using it or fork it if and when they start obstructing your rights. Also, if you think the political right doesn't obstruct anyone's rights, I'm sorry to say it but you are delusional. For most of history they have been forcing their religion and views on marriage down everyone's throats. It's only recently that the left has taken their place.
