>>6587 >It has speakers too, i might go with this one if i can't find anything better. Don't know how much value I would put into monitor speakers. What I look for is an AUX port so you can plug a little cheap mini-soundbar into it and pass through audio through to one of those. Or at least I hope that's how they work since that's how I want to setup an extra monitor for playing console games eventually. But built in speakers are nice to haves on top of that I suppose if you don't want to spend any extra money.

Lithium Ion Batteries Anonymous 11/27/2021 (Sat) 19:48:57 No. 6405 [Reply]
I fucking have lithium ion batteries so fucking much. Every god damn device on the fucking planet now has some stupid fucking soldered in lithium ion battery instead of just letting me slot in my own batteries. So now whenever I buy something as stupid as fucking small electric screwdriver I have to account for the fact that when I leave it on the shelf for a couple years and pick the thing up the cheap chink shit battery inside it will have killed itself and made the thing fucking useless. I can't even count the number of times I've picked up an electronic device with one of these useless fucking things inside them only to discover it died and is now a fucking paperweight unless I go onto ebay and comb through a bunch of shitty batteries to find the bizarre form factor they used in that specific device only to have to fucking rip the entire thing down and solder in an entirely new battery to use a basic fucking electronic. Why the fuck can't retards just let me use replaceable standardize batteries in devices. I DON'T WANT TO RECHARGE MY SHIT WITH A USB CABLE JUST LET ME PUT BATTERIES INTO THE FUCKING DEVICES.
10 posts and 3 images omitted.
>>6405 Sadly, anon, the USB form-factor is more universal than any wall outlet is. Also, lithium batteries last longer. Really, the problem is that the fuckers who make lithium batteries generally WANT to make the stupid form-factors in order to make the company unable to find a new supplier.
>>6454 >lithium batteries last longer. longer than what? you know they make lithium AAs and AAAs right anon?
>>6455 Longer than Alkalines. You are in a very precarious position: Custom batteries allow you to emphasize aesthetics, while allowing you to claim that your device produces less garbage (though it's custom Li battery probably doesn't have enough information on it to be recycled). Replaceable batteries are more convenient for the consumer, but make Liberals (who buy things: conspicuous consumers) cry. And, I can't even imagine the nightmare of trying to recharge random replaceable batteries. Let's just be real: poor niggers are more likely to have a USB-C charger than rechargeable batteries. Owning rechargeable batteries takes planning for the future, and niggers can't plan for the future: that's why they use the charging cable that works NOW and makes the phone work NOW.

Hydrus Network General #3 Anonymous Board volunteer 12/01/2021 (Wed) 23:12:07 No. 6469 [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/

>>6578 >After decrypting my 2TB bad sector boot HDD (with my hydrus database), I cloned to an external 5TB HDD. Also I lost this clone, because, even though it's retarded, I didn't understand why I couldn't expand the partition to fill the entire 5TB HDD. Right now, that external 5TB HDD only has the image I made after booting from the bad sector HDD three times. I eventually learned that there is a difference between like "NTFS" or something, and that the partition couldn't expand past 2TB because of the type it was. I didn't have to delete this clone of it; I could have created two new partitions, and used those. I can only say that I was vulnerable, and thus incapable of operating in my own best interest. I didn't purposely fail myself. Even though every step I took was one self-destructive mistake after another. I just wish I hadn't been vulnerable.
>>6579 Anon, I think you misunderstood quite a lot of stuff regarding hard disks from reading your last two posts. This is clearly a bit too much information for you, so I'll try to condense it down. However, I don't have time right now. I'll try to explain tomorrow, but please, do not touch anything regarding those disks and especially the image of the original boot sector HDD. A lot of assumptions of you are wrong, an OS does NOT overwrite free space at random. You overwriting your hard disk may also be less problematic than you may think at first. I really hate to give you false hope here, but don't be so hard on yourself. There is no way an average computer user has the background knowledge for any of this, especially since windows is hiding a lot of the complexity from you. Stop blaming yourself for not knowing what you couldn't have known. Recovering corrupted file systems is a minefield and any wrong move will blow disastrously in your face if not planned for properly. There is a reason why professionals in this area make shitloads of cash. After the encryption is done, please don't try any more experiments before someone can explain to you exactly what went wrong and how to fix it. I urge you, do NOT do any writing to this image - no chkdsk, no hex editor, no ntfsfix, nothing! Copy the image of the original boot drive somewhere safe, in addition to the 5TB external HDD. Again, for any functional backup, you need at least two other hard drives of the same size. You may as well bite the bullet and buy them right now.
>>6584 Thanks. I won't fuck with the only image I created, of course, nor the original bad sector HDD. But I only have a laptop, where I use the CD drive as a secondary hard drive slot. But I won't fuck with all I have left. And, I'm trying not to hope. Even though any new information makes me feel like death, I'm not purposely trying to make myself vulnerable like that.

The Pinephone Anonymous 05/18/2020 (Mon) 09:17:14 No. 114 [Reply] [Last]
>what is the Pinephone It's an open hardware phone that runs specialized Linux distros with touch friendly DEs, you can also just install arch and dwm on it if you're insane. >muh privacy The phone has hardware switches that allow you to physically disconnect privacy infringing peripherals. >muh repairability Pine64 sells all spare parts for the phone, display module is 30$ for example. Battery is the same as a Samsung j700 and extremely cheap. >muh touch screen Pine64 is developing two keyboard cases. One is a clamshell PDA style, and the other is a slide out kb like the n900. They integrate directly into the phone since they will replace the backplate. >muh peripherals It has a 3.5mm headphone jack, which doubles as a UART port. 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. They donate much of their earnings to open source projects, and use the rest to develop new devices. >full specs and more info https://www.pine64.org/pinephone/ >wiki

>>4884 >are you schizos that retarded? If they wanted to go through all this hustle just to spy on you they'd just make a normal phone and deal with the marketing crap they put dummy buttons in elevators to make people feel in control of the doors opening/closing. they put dummy buttons at crosswalks to make pedestrians feel in control of the walk signal. why do you doubt a phone manufacturer would put a placebo switch on their device?
>>284 >that's we they're lying about fake disconnect switches that just send the same signal as the OS For me the issue is not so much about whether or not the hardware switch is sending the same signal as the OS on a normal phone, it's more about how the signal is being sent. As this anon >>217 said, >Try transmitting or receiving with the rtl8723cs when it's chip enable isn't enabled I am confident enough in the hardware to trust that it will do what it is supposed to do when the appropriate commands are sent. But I am not at all confident that an operating system will do what I tell it to do every time, especially not one owned by Apple or Google. I have seen different OS enable switches not work at times on my old Iphone, and I have even seen them turn themselves back on after I turned them off. The hardware switch on the PinePhone removes this variable
>>5207 > but now I can't since it won't work on Verizon, At&t, or T-mobile, or any carrier operating on their infrastructure I bought a PinePhone last year and T-mobile gave me service On this note, does anyone have any carrier recommendations for the PinePhone in the US? While T-mobile did connect my phone, they don't have any service at my house, so it was kinda pointless. The phone appears to be compatible with US Cellular networks, but they won't allow it on their network. I haven't tried Verizon yet because I can't stand them.

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.

>>6539 >Guns are different because confiscating those door to door gets you killed I believe most gun owners that bothered to register their firearm would also comply with a door to door gun grab. the only ones willing to shoot a cop would be niggers, drug dealers and other felon types. cops are more likely to be killed by their covid vaccine than by a registered gunowner
>>6551 >gun owners that bothered to register their firearm Which states have gun registration laws, besides for a CCW? California perhaps?

The 08chan and Zeronet Problem Anonymous 03/15/2021 (Mon) 19:36:10 No. 2951 [Reply]
An idea sort of came together toward the problems of zeronet moderation and a possible solution for another go at something similar. What about crypto wallets? I think using XMR or similarly private coin wallet address as your identifier instead of how you pretty much gave up your privacy to be tracked on 08chan as an initial identifier to track trash glowniggers and commies posting CP and other such trash to ruin it for everyone else. You'd still be tracked but only to the point of your wallet. I'm sure someone a bit more OpSec fresh than me could come up with an infographic to set that up securely even.

>CP is... le bad
>>2951 I think that would be a cool,but not to replace image-boards,but rather as another way of communicating online. >>2974 I think pseudo-anonymous websites would be cool, this sites when they get big get misleading and just annoying.In popular sites like 4-chan people don't say be B in response to A ,they say D ,Z and C in a ironic way.I've seen people who respond the most retard responses they can think of only to degenerate the conversation. With this system you wouldn't have glowniggers spying you,but could also differentiate the users.You wouldn't talk to your grandma the same way you talk to a friend , so the same online you wouldn't talk to a newfag the same way you would talk to someone who specializes on the board topic. This wouldn't replace the imageboards,because this is not their intent.Their intent is to have meaningful conversations or discussions,while imageboard would be for laughs and idiot posting. >>2975 Agreed bans are stupid >>6314 >>6360 >>6497 Can't you see there is a solution,different boards,(or pseudo-anonymous forum as I mentioned),with different owners.Maybe in one they accept what you hate maybe in others no.The idea is that there is a free-market of ideas and sites in which the user chooses the best one instead of being imposed.

So youtube has indefinite shadow bans now, huh? Anonymous 11/24/2021 (Wed) 09:03:21 No. 6356 [Reply]
Don't know if it's the right place to post, so give me directions to plebbit if it isn't. So i was testing why the hell my comments were disappearing from public view. I've come to conclusion that jewtube now shadow bans you for reaching certain threshold of bad words. Before you could at least make a correction in comment, but as of right now, system doesn't allow you to comment anywhere. Here would be some examples.

>>4658 Crypographically secure hardware attestation that your computer is running what it says it's running plus a unique hardware ID you can't change. It will be trivial for anyone to track your computer around the web with 100% accuracy, if you catch a bullshit cheating ban they will ban your mobo permanently from whatever service it is, and you will be required to run unmodified windows 11 to access several services (bank websites, online multiplayer, etc.). Basically unbreakable android safteynet (phones already have hardware attestation, once every phone does it will be enforced everywhere with the same consequences). Everything shitty about computers will get 10x worse because no one will be able to do anything about it (you WILL run chrome with no ad blocking and you WILL be happy). Buy an fx-8350 and a newer mobo with solid state caps and hold on to your butt.

Monero As the Internet's Currency Anonymous 04/18/2021 (Sun) 01:27:33 No. 3581 [Reply]
There's many cryptocurrencies out there. But out of the many cryptocoins out there only one stands out, Monero. It's safe, secure, private, and anonymous and there has yet to be a government agency that can crack its code. It's also not handled by banks, payment processors, and credit card companies that may blacklist you for bullshit reasons. The promising technology of atomic swapping will also render crypto exchanges to be not needed as this will counter government regulations of asset exchanges. Also this cryptocurrency is the easier to mine compared to Bitcoin. So do you think Monero will see more widespread use in the future? Give your thoughts.

Anon drags a mouse No (You) are really pathetic huh?
nvidia are killing gpu mining so its only before monero gets a pump and the golden age returns to cpus. I am fucking sick of crypto currency that are nothing and aren't privacy oriented and not decentralized. Monero is the only coin with an actual use and philosophy that crypto currency should be.
>>6012 No but I meant for online stores,like checking the money automatically or showing inside the website server as if someone (anonymously preferably) has paid or ,etc, vids,tutorials,forum about this?
