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/

How do you use system predicates in advanced searches? The advanced search box doesn't bring up the drop-down menu for system predicates like the normal one, and inputting the system predicates normally seems to treat them as a normal tag instead of a special system tag, so it doesn't actually perform the search right.

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.

>>1500 Tor didn't used to be run by sjws and trannies. They took over after the software was done. >Because the FOSS paradigm is inherently left of center. >Historically ""leftists"" have been the main group Wrong. From 2000-2009 "foss" (that term didn't exist then) was men-only, pro-loli, anti-feminist. Women kicked us out of all of our projects by taking over the web hosts. Every single one. Any project that didn't bow down was deleted from the webhosts or censored from the announcement websites. That's once we completed the software.
>>3617 No: it is because systemd can be remotely exploited. The Tor people hate pedos, hate anti-feminists, and hate men. They are pro-women's rights, pro-tranny, pro-USA
Now it has script enabled, and it auto enables script on restart but shows no script icon, so this is surely honeypot.

A place to shill for your favorite browsers & addons. Learn how to protect yourself from the botnet. What are your favorite addons and browsing tricks to protect your privacy? Share them here so we can all be a little safer. Browsers Chrome Chrome is somehow still in the lead due to sheer momentum, despite even the dumbest lusers cracking jokes about memory usage. Google has continued to abuse their position as the largest website and browser to force non-standards compliant changes to the way rendering works, generally to their benefit. Should be avoided at all costs. They track everything you do in some way. Chromium Even "de-Google'd" it still phones home and tracks your every move. Plus it gives them market share to bully smaller browsers and websites into complying with their standards. Avoid. Firefox Mozilla is pretty cucked and it's running on Rust these days, but it's a decent compromise between the modernity of Chrome and the standards compliance of something like Pale Moon. It's the closest you can get to a proper browser that's also updated regularly. Addons are worse now that they use Google's "web extensions" API, which is a downgrade from the Mozilla API and no more secure. But the whole "Quantum" thing has it flying, and they are better about standards compliance than Chrome is, and usually only break away because Chrome gives them no choice. Pale Moon The Gentooman's preferred choice, although some sites just don't play nice with it anymore. The last real holdout of old Gecko rendering. Has a diverse ecosystem, but it's basically the remnants of Firefox from yesteryear repackaged. Not bad if you can stand many sites not playing nice.

>>4374 The big gimmick of Nyxt is that since it is written in Common Lisp and includes a Swank server you can hook Emacs up to it and edit your configurations live on the fly. Try something out, write it to your init.lisp file and you are good to go. And since it is written in Common Lisp you can change pretty much any aspect of the browser, you are not boxed in like in other browsers. I have know about if for a while, but last time I checked (which was two years ago) it was still very experimental. I might give it a try now though. > and uses WebKitGTK. It can use both WebKit and Blink. Gecko is not supported though because Mozilla was retarded and made it practically impossible to embed Gecko.

All AMD Processors Since Phenom II Have BadBIOS Circuitry That Leaks to the Military Anonymous 06/10/2021 (Thu) 11:34:40 No. 4426 [Reply]
Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer. Just like AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS (uses radio, not sound) vastly nastier than StuxNet. American military made a grave mistake by giving access to the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.

https://archive.is/SMqgj Most of the Freenode staff has resigned and moved to Libera.Chat now that Andrew Lee (or maybe someone from PIA) dun goofed with allowing corporate takeover of the site. Some might have considered it blown out of proportion: https://archive.md/b39Ic Gentoo might migrate soon, too: https://archive.md/DVhWz
Freenode is a honeypot that blocks Tor. Does Libera.Chat block Tor?
>>4165 The site plans to allow it eventually: >Libera.Chat is not yet accessible by Tor but we intend to have this available soon. https://libera.chat/guides/connect
Looks like Gentoo, Arch, and Artix have all moved to Libera.Chat. Tor is supported there now, too.

That is because of Richard Matthew Stallman: who is at the helm of the free-software movement but will not say a word. It is RMS's fault that he doesn't even speak to defend his copyright license.

No-one is going to enforce it and you should really get over it. You haven't found a single person of note with an appetite to make a serious fuss about grsec and get something done. The GPL is an irrelevant joke in 2021 and it's only used in places where it literally doesn't matter, and largely it seems that open source is getting pillaged by corporations regardless.

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?
