Invidious development halting Starting September 1st, I'm shutting down the user-facing portion of and stepping away from development. If you have an account on the site, you can export your data here, which will allow you to import everything to another instance or self-host. The API will continue to function until October 1st, to give time for any services relying on it to migrate to other solutions. If you're a patron on Liberapay, I would urge you to switch your donation to iv-org, as that will ensure it goes to the stewards of the project going forward. At the time of this writing, the main Invidious instance has roughly 35,000 users. It's difficult for me to even begin to think of those as actual people, and not just a number. At that level, the amount of feedback I receive, which I would consider rather small in comparison to others I've seen, is overwhelming. It's demoralizing not being able to respond to all of it properly. Even more so when I've received something that deserves an involved response, but I haven't had the time to reply, which counter-intuitively means the best comments are least likely to receive any response. To echo antirez: it's crushing not being able to be "there" for people. Lately, I've felt myself withdraw much more in return. For any project though, especially something that requires maintanence, it's difficult to actually "unplug" and mentally recharge. Turning off notifications has helped, but it's definitely taken its toll. For any project of a certain size, it's more important for the lead to be a manager more than a developer. As an example, it's mostly well-known that Linus Torvalds hardly does any coding anymore. At that point working on a side-project becomes a job, and not one I particularly enjoy. If I had known that I would've ended up in that position on a passion project, I'm curious if I would have made it open-source, or started working on it at all. In either case, I consider myself extremely lucky to have people that can manage the project in future, and can only imagine what it would be like for someone without that luxury. I can't help shake the feeling that somewhere, the software I use is being developed solely by volunteers who would rather quit, but don't have the ability to say "no". This post has been delayed for that very reason, especially when so many people have given so much, and I feel they deserve a proper goodbye. At this point though, I can't find the strength to leave on better terms. I don't want this to read like I somehow feel underappreciated or underpaid. I'm not motivated by praise or money. After working on the same thing for three years, I'm just tired and ready to move on. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

User-respecting websites

Are there any notable websites left that would respect the user's right even to some degree? My criteria are quite simple: 1. The website must not require javascript to work properly. It's fine to have extra functionality that requires javascript, but the main purpose of the site should be implemented without requiring javascript. 2. The website must allow Tor users and other proxy users. 3. The website must not require the user to give his name, address, phone number or any other identifying detail. In other words, the website must allow pseudo-anonymity. I can think of very few such websites: 1. allows you to create e-mail addresses, although the webmail doesn't work, but you can use your own e-mail client instead. 2. Some smaller imageboards work. 3. Search engines like duckduckgo and sometimes Startpage work. Although Startpage has been more frustrating lately. A lot of forums require registration, which is not new, but nowadays they require the user to pass google recaptcha v3, which does not work at all without javascript, and even with javascript it often just gives a never-ending list of traffic lights. works without javascript, but the comment section doesn't really work, and you obviously cannot upload videos that way. Bitchute allows you to watch videos if you already have the channel URL and do some RMB+Q magic, but the main page is practically unusable without javascript, and registration requires recaptcha v3. None of the social media sites fit the criteria, obviously.

Although not entirely in the spirit of /t/, let's talk a bit about this typesetting tool. What do you use it for? Do you like using it? Encountering any problems? What program do you use? I mainly use it for my academic reports, since it works very well with formulae and chemical reactions. Anything else would be an abstract horror, so to say. I have been using TeXworks+JabRef, and have mostly been satisfied with the results - except for the occasional hiccup like the formula above. The only drawback is that there is not a proper dark theme, so it gets a little straining on the eyes sometimes.

Tor Discussion

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.

Lynxchan customization

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{ width:auto!important; } .innerPost, .markedPost { display: inline-block; padding: 0.25em; max-width: 100%; } #threadList { margin: 0; } iframe { display: block; width: 100%; } .divPosts { margin: 1em 0!important; } } This basically cancels out the responsive layout so the look of the board is consinstent when dealing with different windows/screen/fontsizes. It's probably a really retarded way to do it as it just overrides the stuff in the media query with the default values. But I'm glad I got rid of it at all. .theme_win95 #divThreads .title { background:linear-gradient(90deg, darkblue, lightskyblue)!important; color:white!important; } This turns the Windows 95 theme into Windows 98 SE. I've made a few more adjustments but I think fucked up other stuff in the process (focusing a post makes it all blue). The starting point was the gradient making everything less readable so I changed some of the colors. .labelCreated { display: inline!important; } .theme_win95 #divThreads .title { background:linear-gradient(90deg, darkblue, lightskyblue)!important; color:white!important; } .theme_win95 .extraMenuButton, .theme_win95 .hideButton, .theme_win95 .linkQuote, .theme_win95 .linkSelf { color: white!important; } .theme_win95 .panelBacklinks>a { color:gold!important; } .theme_win95 .labelSubject { color:orange; } .theme_win95 .noEmailName{ color:White!important; background: transparent!important; } .theme_win95 .linkName { color: cyan; }

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 >wiki >schematics >store: currently selling the ubports community edition, where pine donates 10$ to ubports foundation per sale.

/p2p/ General

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? IPFS: The Interplanetary File System us a protocol designed to help decentralize the web as a whole. It works like a distributed filesystem where you can pin files you like and others can access them. What is I2P? I2P is similar to IPFS in that it is a distributed network which holds files and other information for access outside of regular channels. Entire websites can be mirrored and accessed via I2P. This thread is for discussion, questions, and recommendations regarding peer-to-peer technologies and filesharing. You may also offer, request, or trade invites to trackers. Also consider this the /tech/ Share Thread.

Flatpak and Friends

What's your opinion on the concept of these newfangled package managers having sandboxing, enabling backwards compatibility and having a one-build-fits-all-distros mentality? Is it bloat, or the right way to go about solving such problems? Personally, I use Flatpak to handle games, so my system doesn't actually have any 32 bit libraries installed by my distro's package manager, anything 32 bit's managed entirely by Flatpak, separate from everything else. As well as isolating propietary software, since most games are, and Steam too. Since I don't use programs with Qt 5 much, I've decided to get rid of the ones I've installed natively and installed the ones I do need on Flatpak, that way I can get rid of Qt 5 as well.

Good Microphone for VA?

Hey guys, I'm starting to get into voice-acting, and it's honestly something that I've been wanting to do for a long, long time, so now that I have the money and the time, I wanted to really dive into it. Problem is, I am very inept when it comes to audio technology. I'm doing my best to try and learn about the different kinds of mics, and how to hook them all up, i.e. XLR vs. USB, audio interfaces, etc., and it's SORT OF making sense, but really, there's just a kind of overload of information online. Can you guys just help me decide on a good microphone for voice-acting, even entry-level? I have a Blue Snowball iCE right now, but I'd really like something more professional, even if I have to spend a couple hundred. Thoughts? Recommendations? Two that've caught my attention so far are the Shure Beta 58a and the MXL 990, but I don't want to make a shitty purchase and regret it.

My concern is that the ATX12V port is under the heatsink, requiring me to bend the cable when the heatsink is in. This is the only way to fit the cooler since in the proper direction (hovering over the RAM), the pipes will bump into the chipset heatsink, making mounting that way impossible.
