Tor Discussion Anonymous 06/15/2020 (Mon) 04:52:53 No. 449 [Reply]
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is worse, "Ungoogled" Chromium is still Chrome garbage, same with Brave, alternative Firefox builds are usually outdated, and Opera is blatantly spyware.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.

>>449 Tor's main strength is bouncing your IP address every 10 minutes and hiding your user agent from onion supported sites(if you have javascript disabled). That sounds great on paper and better than a VPN except there's a draw here; compromises in speed, and not being compatible/flexible with Cloudflare supported sites. Tor's not practical to use outside imageboards and Tor supported sites. For clearnet sites you're just better off using a VPN. >>800 SJWs and the likes are a cancerous bunch but they can't censor the Tor software as it would rid of the point of using it in the first place. Still though I'd probably just run a Browser with no telemetry/spyware and a VPN and that ought to do the trick.
>>817 To add to this, while Pale Moon exist, I think its probably worth fixing up Firefox, and removing all the telemetry features because it has Noscript which can safeguard you against malicious sites that might have spyware and avoid having to install anti-virus software in the first place.
>>817 >Still though I'd probably just run a Browser with no telemetry/spyware and a VPN and that ought to do the trick. Sure. In most situations it's enough.

Colorimetry Anonymous 07/12/2020 (Sun) 03:48:13 No. 630 [Reply]
I'm trying to learn colorimetry. In particular, I want to calculate CRIs from spectrographs of a light source. However, all the CIE documentation is fragmented all the fuck over the place so I don't even know which piece of documentation I need, and it's also all paywalled. Anyone have any good colorimetry sources?

Post bits and pieces of JS and CSS here that you use to make browsing imageboards running Lynxware more enjoyable. On 8moe I use the following CSS: @media only screen and (max-width: 812px) { .uploadCell { margin: 0.25em 1em 0.25em 0.5em; float: none; } .multipleUploads { float: left; width: 100%; } .postInfo, .opHead, .divMessage, .panelUploads, .panelIp, .panelProxyIp, .contentOmissionIndicator, .labelOmission, .labelId, .panelASN { font-size: 80%; } .innerPost{

Valve/CodeWeavers Rolls Out Proton 5.0-10 RC For Death Stranding, One Day After Windows Release https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Proton-5.10-RC Valve and CodeWeavers have rolled out a release candidate of Proton 5.0-10 as the newest update to their Wine-based software powering Steam Play for running Windows games on Linux. The lone significant change with Proton 5.0-10 RC is making the game Death Stranding now playable on Linux.

Approved: Fedora 33 Desktop Variants Defaulting To Btrfs File-System https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Fedora-33-Btrfs-Desktop-Approve The Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee formally signed off today on allowing Fedora 33 desktop variants to default to using the Btrfs file-system rather than the existing EXT4 default or other alternatives. About a decade after the Btrfs default for Fedora was originally proposed for multiple release cycles, with the Fedora 33 release due out this autumn is when that milestone may finally be realized. Of course, if issues come up with the Btrfs usage of Fedora, the change could still be reverted, but FESCo gave the go-ahead. As stated, this default change just affects desktop variants of Fedora 33 like Fedora Workstation. The mad men are actually doing it: BTRFS is gaining traction. Considering this is how systemdicks got support, we could see a switchover to BTRFS in major distributions following this.

>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

>>681 >Allegedly they were sold at-cost I used to sell the Goddamned things back in the day, and that's what our Google reps told us. Android only exists as we know it today because Google were absolute Hebrews about it and simply dumped money into the drain in order to get Apple out of the top spot. Rumor had it that Samsung only gained the top spot because they backed Android when Google needed them to, so Google scratched their back once Android got a foothold and backed off in order to let Samsung pull ahead.
>>680 Have you ever seen a multi-layer PCB, nigger?
The price isn't bad compared to other devices promising the same shit. Though the low amount of RAM is making me doubt to ever get one.

Is there any steganographic encryption/Tor/etc. out there I can use when this "let's ban encryption!" bullshit gets passed? Because let's be honest, they're eventually going to pass it, just like every other bullshit legislation they always eventually want to pass.
3 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>624 Anon, this happens with a LOT of legislation. Major corps backing minimum wage laws, tax increases, more regulations, etc.. They do it because it increases the barriers to entry, making them more dominant, crushing their competition, and centralizing their market share.
>>623 >Definitely call up your congressman and senators and complain loudly. This cannot be allowed to pass. We will all become criminals overnight. It's just like SOPA/PIPA/TPP/FOSTCA/SESTA/etc., they can keep trying over and over again (encryption in particular has been going on since the clipper chip debates in the 90s) until they find some sneaky way (like the SESTA shit) to eventually get the legislation they always wanted to begin with. I'm already incredibly fatalistic about it. I can see the writing on the wall. They're going to get this shit passed even though everybody on the internet is against it. So, I'd rather skip to what I can actually do (because 'calling your senator' has about the same staying power as that online petition to get a new season of Firefly). If I have to move to steganographic protocols, for example, I think that'd be the most reasonable move that within my scope of what I could reasonably do in my life.
>>627 Yeah, let's just wait until the day that the MANE (Monopolies Are Not Evil) Act gets passed allowing monopolies to actually be allowed. (No, it's not an actual thing, but with how things are going, I don't doubt that some legislation is going to come out legitimately allowing monopolies instead of corporate loopholes that allow them to be "not" monopolies) >>628 Yeah, it's sad. They only have to pass this one time whereas everyone else has to vote against it until they stop. While your congressman and senators may not do much, just remember to cast your vote for actual people that genuinely care about your privacy rather than corporate sock-puppets.

/p2p/ General Anonymous 05/06/2020 (Wed) 02:13:46 No. 23 [Reply]
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?

>>573 if you can, try to get into Bibliotik in addition to MAM. It has much greater quality control and organization, even if the community there is dead, and it's as easy as mam as long you spam 100 uploads from LA's Overdrive. Generally for books, your sources should be Bibliotik --> MAM --> Libgen/B-ok
>>593 has Bibliotik much advantages compared to MaM ? Ive just read that the invite is kinda hard, ratio is tough and the staff is not that friendly.

>>520 The screen is not bulging out, although it's hard to tell. I didn't know that the board could be placed under the keyboard, either. Also, there's some IPS glow that's noticeable when adjusting the lid.

kind of wish a core duo / x200 could handle a 1080p60 decode let alone encode, such a shame it can't
>>525 I had to troubleshoot my audio jack (turns out it was never plugged into the fucking motherboard) and while I had it open I decided to stash my LCD controller behind the monitor as well, and it works great. Mine looks different from yours though; the cables that come off of the board are both 90° connectors and they are pointed towards the same corner, and also the cable to the screen itself is much longer. It was kind of a pain in the ass to manage the cables but after I got it stuffed in there it works fine.
