Anyone know of software for generating various names? I know there's a bunch of random websites but it would be nice to have a basic command line program or something simply for getting various names generated. Fantasy names, usernames, real names, etc.

>>5433 As far as I'm aware the framework laptop isn't really a good price to performance deal by any stretch of the imagination. If you really want a repairable laptop or want to support the cause and the company than it would be fine to buy, but you could probably get a laptop with a dedicated GPU in it for the same price, or a laptop of equivalent performance for a fraction of the price. I don't know why a used chinkpad wouldn't fit an office aesthetic since that's literally exactly what they're designed for. And a newer used chinkpad will be like $300-$500 and do everything you need.

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.

New fag here, is there any application or code to make an online store with monero or a way of personalizing transactions such as messages ,the only transaction apps I see are proprietary or get a cut . I say this because now transactions depends in a lot of trust and isn't professional.If I'm a chair seller and I sell two chairs but there are three request how do I know who I send the chair to,not to mention that for what I know you can't just make a website where it register if someone has send you monero or not

ChannelChanger Development & Support Anonymous 09/06/2020 (Sun) 18:37:48 No. 1257 [Reply] [Last]
This is the official development and support thread for ChannelChanger. Please request help, post bugs, or offer suggestions here. What is ChannelChanger? A cross-platform, multi-site scraper and importer. It allows anyone to back up a board and then import it to their own website. https://gitgud.io/Codexx/channel_changer What do I need to run this? Python 3.8+ and most of the dependencies listed in requirements.txt. A basic set-up guide is provided in the readme. This software was developed and tested exclusively on Linux. I intend to support both OSX and WIndows. If you use either of these platforms and encounter any issues, please let me know. Can I scrape a board from [site] with this? Probably. There is explicit support for LynxChan, Vichan, and JSChan websites. Some vichan sites may have issues with thumbnails because their APIs do not expose thumbnail extensions; I have added an override but you may need to run two scrapes of boards on some sites to get all of the thumbnails. Vichan's API matches 4chan's with some extensions, so the scraper might work on other sites which clone the 4chan API, but this is untested. Many vichan sites have customized frontends, such as OpenIB, Lainchan, or Kissue. I've tested and confirmed these work, but can't always guarantee full compatibility with each of these, especially if they decide to alter the API or where files are stored. LynxChan sites should work fine, since the direct path for both the thumbnail and the file are in the JSON.

>The 9th Circuit has defended the right to scrape publicly-accessible data (Archive). In the same ruling, they explicitly disallow measures which discriminate against scrapers, holding that they have the right to access any data a user with a web browser does. Who the fuck is the 9th circuit and why should anyone care? And also you're wrong faggot, you don't have the right to rape web servers with automated requests because that stupid article lies on a fallacy that bot activity = "a user with a web browser" which is clearly wrong unless you limit your tool to 20KB/s which I doubt is the case so fuck off.
>>3513 https://infogalactic.com/info/United_States_Court_of_Appeals_for_the_Ninth_Circuit Maybe you should've actually looked it up instead of fagging out about it. >And also you're wrong faggot, you don't have the right to rape web servers with automated requests. Explain what the actual issue with scraping public data is, aside from "muh requests", get a better VPS or connection then if you're hosting public data that's starting to be scraped and you otherwise have no objections to such scraping.
By request, I've added experimental support for scraping Yotsuba on a side branch. It's hacky and I probably won't add it into master, but if anyone wants to use the tool for scraping halfchan it should now be able to handle that.

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?

So what's considered "good" VPN? Mullvad? ovpn.com?
>>5366 Mullvad is pretty well regarded. Even if you don't trust them, you can just mail cash in an envelope or send them bitcoin. Their accounts have no identifiable information unless you give it to them.
>>5381 It's rather annoying that they don't accept Monero.

Okay retards, what's the best school for computer science? How is the school you went to better than all the others? And what is the objectively best, top-of-the-line "even if I didn't personally make it in" school in your opinion? Or is your knowledge of computers entirely self-study? What was your course of study? And why did you choose that path? And finally, is there anything you wish you would've done differently while studying computer science?

>>5308 This is the smartest path in the long run. If your REALLY want the theoretical foundation, find any of the free online curriculum like https://github.com/ossu/computer-science or https://fullstackopen.com/en/ (much more practical for making projects) and go to town. What is going to get you the job are your projects on your resume, they show you can get things done. Target start ups for your first job since they won't care so much about your degree, but what you can do. Stay for a year or two and apply somewhere else if you so choose. After the first year, experience counts more.
>>5308 >>5337 Full disclosure, I went the university route and only really for a piece of paper and 50k in debt to show for it. It took me 6 months to land my first job, and I ended up getting hired alongside someone who went to a bootcamp at a fraction of the cost of what I paid. All universities and bootcamps give you are a clear path to graduation, but all of this can be learned on your own for free.

Censorship-free game server Anonymous 08/24/2021 (Tue) 16:47:11 No. 5237 [Reply]
Is it possible to make a free speech friendly game server (say, Minetest) that is resistant to being shut down by restrictive governments, hosting companies and ICANN. Possibility 1: Anonymity networks. How feasible is it to connect to a game server running on, say, a Tor hidden service? How about a Lokinet SNapp? I2P? Possibility 2: Blockchain domains. These are very straightforward from what I've heard. Cons: only defends against ICANN but not gov or provider. Possibility 3: Peer-to-peer. How hard is this? Cons: no privacy (by default) These possibilities are not necessarily mutually exclusive. E.g. The P2P network could be run over an anon network to improve privacy.
>>5237 >Is it possible to make a free speech friendly game server (say, Minetest) that is resistant to being shut down by restrictive governments, hosting companies and ICANN. Assuming your server is seen as some super-Nazi hangout that multiple governments want shutdown, no. Realistically, if you're not on a watch-list and neither are the players, you're probably fine. >How feasible is it to connect to a game server running on, say, a Tor hidden service? How about a Lokinet SNapp? I2P? Privacy networks are usually terrible for most games due to latency. (Unless you're doing something turn-based where speed doesn't matter.) Each user using a VPN with only 1 server in the middle (most of them) would offer some privacy, but not enough if the government really wants you shut down. >Blockchain domains. <Cons: only defends against ICANN but not gov or provider. It does delay it. Some governments are retarded about catching people on "alt tech", but they'll catch onto you eventually. >Peer-to-peer. <no privacy (by default) If there's no feds involved and no one is on a watchlist, you actually might stand out less and avoid the initial suspicion of wrongdoing in the first place. May or may not be safe in a surveillance state, even if no one is suspected of anything before joining or hosting the server. Your best bet might be to just move the server around different hosts periodically if you're really paranoid about potential takedowns.
how free speech are we talking about here? calling people niggers? openly advocating for pedophilia?

Looking for a Thinkpad, primarily for ease of travel so it needs to be as thin+lightweight as possibl. Will run Linux. Minimum 8GB RAM, if I can install 16GB great. Internet Browsing, 1080p video playback, and i want to play some 3D games if possible like TF2 but not serious stuff unless the laptop can do TB3 eGPU. X240 + IPS is good choice?
>>10 I managed to find my old IBM T42. It powers on, but I only get a black screen from both the monitor, and the VGA output. The battery is dead, but the power cable works fine. Does it need a working battery to show a display? I could have sworn I've unplugged it before without issues. Before I spend money on replacement parts, what should I try troubleshooting? (I'd prefer not to spend too much in case there's more wrong with it than I realize. I just want to use it as a cheap 90s/XP-era gaming machine because it's available.)
Is there anything modern even close to what an old IBM Thinkpad was in terms of durability? Or is everything just cheap chinkshit nowadays? I got one years back used as a gift, but eventually I had to upgrade to something newer for work. I didn't realize how great it was until every laptop I've had since die on me within a couple years. I formatted it with some flavor of Ubuntu and gave it to my grandma at least, so it didn't go to complete waste, but I still wish I could have used it longer. I tried a Lenovo Thinkpad once, but it didn't feel the same.

Richard Stallman taught us that: 1. In America "you can get arrested without a reason." 2. Russian spy "Edward Snowden is a Great Hero." 3. HAMAS terrorists are the good guys, while Israel is a fascist state. 4. "The US military" are the "violent white supremacists." "The US owes reparations to Iraq for the damage it has done." 5. "The US military is poisoning [low-income] communities across the US with toxic chemicals." 6. It is wrong that "the US government has persecuted Julian Assange for a decade for Wikileaks' journalism." 7. "Publishing of leaked secret [American] information" is journalism, and not espionage or sabotage. 8. Terrorist Iranian dictatorship, trying to make a nuclear bomb, are the good guys, and America should ally with it. 9. "US today — plutocracy, extractivism and dooH niboR." 10. "US government doesn't try to operate fair taxation." 11. American "democracy is a sham." 12. "We must defeat [American] plutocracy." 13 "War is not the way to deal with" the totalitarian regimes. 14. Pre-teen children can "appear entirely willing." 15. Writing software unpaid makes you "free as in freedom." 16. There is nothing wrong with the Red Star GNU/Linux being used in North Korea as the totalitarian surveillance tool tracking any non approved communication. GNU GPL completely approves such use, because it gives their government users "freedom."
