The Pinephone

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

Arch User Repository

Is it just me or does the fact the AUR is shilled so hard kind of retarded? It seems like an insanely insecure method of distributing software. Any random fuck being able to upload shit. Sure some of the packages are managed by the official developers, most most are just binaries packaged by random dipshits. All it takes is one popular package to get orphaned and a malicious actor to take over and you suddenly can distribute malware to fucktons of people. It seems like such a bizarre thing that everyone has accepted and even actively pushes as a "noob" friendly method to get any and all software they want easily on Linux. Now with the Steam Dick around the corner the platform will be a much greater target for attacks. I suspect all these previously unexploited vectors to get much more sketchy in the coming years. Linux security has been entirely dependent on the competency of the individual user and that's a recipe for disaster in the hands of the average consumer. But I also find it very irresponsible that the discussion around Linux hasn't really highlighted how fucking insecure the AUR really is, but instead highlights the convenience of it.

Monero As the Internet's Currency

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.

The 08chan and Zeronet Problem

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.

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.

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.

Operation Download And Conquer

Given how majority of the internet's audio and video services are provided by Google, thanks to Youtube, the purpose of this operation is to loosen the death-grip that has taken hold. This process will only require that you have a steady internet connection and (Advisably) 100 GB of free space. Here is the process: Step 1 Download the latest versions of FFMpeg and Youtube-DL, and put all the programs into the same folder: Step 2 Create an account to any video sites that you wish to distribute videos on. Here are some of the more well-known alternatives, as well as some recommended sites: AfreecaTV: Bitchute: BitTube: Dailymotion: LBRY: NicoNico: Rumble: Veoh: VidLii: Vimeo: When signing up, if you do not want to use your personal email, you can create a temporary one using any one of the numerous “10 minute email” websites, (If you have a referral link), or you can create your own email address: Also, make sure that you fulfill whatever silly verification demands the site has so that you can upload videos without any issues Step 3 Hold “Shift” and right-click in an empty part of the folder and select “Open command window here”. Afterwards, you can download Youtube videos through one of the two following methods. First method is if you just want to repost videos and nothing more. All you have to put in the command youtube-dl URL and replace the “URL” with the actual link of the Youtube video, playlist, or channel that you want to download. Doing this will result in all the videos being downloaded, in the best quality possible, to the folder and nothing more. The second method is for those looking to repost videos in a more complete format. In the command line, instead of just the previously listed command, you copy and paste the following command: LOGFILE="$PWD/logs/$(date +"%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S.%N").log" exec 3>&1 4>&2 >>$LOGFILE 2>&1 youtube-dl --verbose --ignore-errors --no-continue --no-overwrites --keep-video --no-post-overwrites --download-archive archive.txt --write-description --write-info-json --write-annotations --write-thumbnail --all-subs --output "%(uploader)s-(%(uploader_id)s)/%(upload_date)s-%(title)s/%(upload_date)s-%(title)s-%(id)s.%(ext)s" -f bestvideo[ext=mp4]+bestaudio[ext=m4a] -- $1 After doing so, replace the “$1” section of the final command line with the URL of the Youtube video, playlist, or channel that you want to download. The big difference here is that it will result in Youtube-dl creating an archive of videos already downloaded (To prevent downloading the same video repeatedly), all the videos and their files will be downloaded to their own individual folders, and videos will only be downloaded in the best quality that is available (Instead of the best quality possible). Make sure that the video downloaded by inputting the download command 3-5 times. Sometimes videos disconnect midway through, so you may need to perform this process several times, especially for longer videos. For videos hidden behind an age-gate restriction, there are two ways to bypass this. The first option is to use yt-dlp: It's the same program as Youtube-dl, except it has some QoL changes made to it. HOWEVER, do not use it as a replacement as it doesn't download most regular videos in their entirety for some reason. For the second option, what you do is that you log into your Youtube account and go to a video. Then you can either dump your browser's cookies to the same same folder as the previously downloaded programs, add --cookies FILE after “youtube-dl” and before the rest of the command, and change the word “FILE” to the actual cookies file that you put into the folder; ORyou can open the developer tab in your browser, copy the cookies requested by Youtube, and proceed to make your own cookies file: If you download too many video in a short time, you may encounter a “HTTP Error 429: Too Many Requests” message that blocks your access. This can be bypassed by either filling out the Captcha on the Youtube website and dumping the cookies file afterwards or changing your IP address. Step 4 Despite either method mentioned previously, sometimes there are leftover files that are trash. To delete this trash, search for and delete all “.part” files, audio files, and “.fXXX” video files found in the download folder. The “.part” files are videos that were unable to be fully downloaded for whatever reason and should be reattempted at a later date or downloaded through another method. The audio files and the “.fXXX” video files are just the individual audio and video for each Youtube video. They should automatically be deleted despite either method used, but verify just in case. Step 5 Just re-upload the videos on all of the sites you made an account for. Also, it is advised that all uploaded videos should have this disclaimer in the description: “I did/do not create, publish, nor own the original video.” If you're doing a more thorough upload, here's a breakdown of the files in the video folder. The “.description” files contain all the text from the video's description, and can be opened in Notepad. The image located in the folder is the Youtube thumbnail. The “.json” file is the video's configuration file for annotations. The “.m4a” file is just the video's audio file and should be deleted. The “.mp4” file is the actual video itself; if there are two “.mp4” files, delete the one ending in “.fXXX” as that's just the original video file without any audio. The “.vtt” file(s) is the official subtitles attached to the video. Questions >Why are some video sites with known issues recommended? Because a bigger issue than all of those sites is the fact that Youtube has an artificial monopoly on the video-hosting market. And, a lot of these websites are just following their model and practices because they see it as successful and are not trying to compete. However, as is the goal of this operation, we will begin to see some sites altering their business practices to better complete as their presence increases. >What videos should I be uploading? Advisably, just the videos you like to watch and rewatch. If you cannot think of what videos you should download, just sit back and think about the content you normally search for or listen to on Youtube, and repost that. The point is to just download and repost whatever is relevant to what you watch. Also, make sure that you're not flooding sites with 20 copies of the same video, so do a search on the sites before you upload to them. >What can a small amount of nobodies on the internet accomplish? If 10 anons were to download and upload 10 videos for 10 days straight, that would result in 1000 videos being distributed across other sites in under two weeks. You don't need a large group of people to cause a sudden and dramatic shift. All that's needed is just small steps taken one at a time, that compound into an avalanche. >This isn't going to change anything as people are just going to fall back into their old habits. I appreciate your criticism and advise that you go and rent a movie or game from Blockbuster or Hollywood Video.

ChannelChanger Development & Support

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. 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. JSChan works, but its API is presumably unstable. if it changes, please alert me and I will make the necessary tweaks. Can I import these boards to my own website? Sure, but for the moment only importing LynxChan boards from LynxChan or Vichan sites has any support. Importing is currently undergoing a heavy refactor. Once it is done, it will be possible to import from any board to a LynxChan website. Imports to other imageboard engines are planned. Can I view the board offline? Easily? No, but I am looking into an option to do this. You will have a local copy of the threads and files, but the data is not modified for local viewing. I will continue to iterate and refactor. The code is a bit of a mess at the moment, but I plan to simplify it and make it PEP8-compliant soon. It's very likely there's still some big kinks to work out. Your feedback is incredibly valuable!

/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.

Censorship-free game server

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.

Richard Matthew Stallman

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." 17. "Facebook is surveillance monster." 18. American corporations are the "enemy of your freedom", despite them creating jobs, quality products and paying taxes. 19. It is totally okay to work for totalitarian regimes, speak propaganda on RussiaToday and get paid in bitcoins by Karpeles. 20. Free software != free speech, and criticizing Stallman and his cult is a taboo, and will get you banned from all related IRC channels and forums. 21. RussiaToday and similiar anti-American sites are the best and most unbiased sources of information. 22. "China is wise" for banning "Tesla cars from entering military bases." 23. "US police are the thugs," while ghetto gangsters are the good guys. 24. "Defending borders and national symbols is the sure sign of a culture in decline". 25. "US should sign the land mine ban treaty," and also ban military robots to put itself at a disadvantage, and risk American lives, where a drone can be used safely. 26. Calling yourself "doctor Stallman" and bragging about your phony honorary degree is totally okay. 27. Being an old fat sexist Jewish creep and harassing young goyim women is perfectly normal. 28. Having net worth of millions of USDs and paying your personal lawyer, Eben Moglen, $281,000 in 2007s money is not an example of corruption and donations mishandling. 29. "Everyone who buys a computer should pay x percent of the price as a software tax," which will go straight to the Free Software Foundation.

Hydrus Network General #2

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:

The future of imageboards: Over 9000 server proxies?

Of the new imageboards that launched recently two of them have something in common: Proxies. The new Zchan launched its server normally and proxies their site through a separate sever. This site has a "back door" to its tor hidden service that runs from a proxy on the clearnet. Much like anons using a proxy to evade a ban from a site, entire sites are now using proxies to avoid being banned from the Internet. The effectiveness of this is apparent at a glance. The servers for the main sites have no public IP to know and a much smaller attack surface, and if a proxy gets shut down another one can be spun up faster than relocating a whole server and all of its data. 8chan goes even further by allowing its server to hide on the onion network in case of a major attack or outage. Deplatforming a proxy that doesn't host content is naturally going to be a bit harder than deplatforming a site that does. My question is, is this going to become the status quo for "controversial" sites going into the future? Even a year ago I would have said this was extreme, but the sheer hostility against non-politically correct sites on the Internet, and the willingness of service providers to cave to an angry mob on the basis of emotion has exceeded my worst fever dreams. This is not how the Internet of my youth was supposed to be.

I Built an Air-Gapped Feed Reader and That Unveiled US’ Military Surveillance

I made for myself a feed reader that can visit pages that need JavaScript (with Puppeteer), make feeds from it (PHP script), make full feeds out of it and write the result to an email file (msg/eml). I then take these files to an air-gapped computer (no network ports, no radio dongles) and read it there with a localhost web stack and custom JavaScript that makes it easy to read hundreds of entries every day. The emails include images and even videos, so there is no need to visit the sites manually most of the time. Besides learning what is written in all these feeds, I have come to learn what isn't written: the US military has access to all PCs (even air-gapped ones) by using radio to control all CPUs (BadBIOS). They use this for blackmail, sabotage and theft. All done by state sponsored cyber terrorists. This is the reason the US is insisting that countries don't use Chinese 5G: China has discovered what the US was doing and now can either do it themselves or block the US' radio transmissions - and the US doesn't want to lose their backdoors. I also learned that the big social networks tap into the data mined by the US' military to surface recommendations in their timelines. TikTok was called a national security threat, but isn't the only one that is tapping the surveillance machine: Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are on it too. I am willing to partner with researchers who want to replicate my findings and reverse engineer the malware they inject on the RAM of PCs. There is more that I haven't written here, but ask away and I will reply. For those who don't have the skills or don't want to face the danger of going against a corrupt military, but that still want to stand against the violations of Human Rights that are going on, just spread the word. Thank you.

Browser and Internet Privacy Thread

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. Brave A cryptocurrency scam in browser form that's running modified Chrome underneath. Avoid. Lynx Text-mode browsing. Quality way to browse a surprising number of websites. Highly recommended. Unfortunately doesn't work well with LynxChan, which is ironic. Addons Block Ads uBlock Origin is pretty much uncontested. Be sure to avoid AdBlock Plus and uBlock, which are both sellouts. JavaScript LibreJS or uMatrix make it easy to manage and secure what scripts run in your browser and where page contests are loaded from. Canvas Defender' I use this to ward-off HTML5 canvas fingerprinting. It will return a randomize response to fingerprinting requests when it detects one. Decentraleyes Minimizes or blocks content loaded from CDNs, helping reduce the number of requests you need to make and preventing CDNs from violating your privacy. Even supports Pale Moon, so you know the developer has a good head on their shoulders. Disconnect A bit sketchy based on the website, but effectively works to block arbitrary cross-site scripts which ping Google, Facebook, etc. Helps prevent being tracked by these behemoths when sites use their embeds. Container Tabs A real killer feature that Firefox should have upstreamed instead of garbage like Pocket. Allows you to open tabs with a container for cookies. Instead of having to open private browsing to prevent Google from spying on your other cookies, you just put them into a containment tab. Problem solved. >But there are other ways to identify you! Correct, but these are increasingly becoming the most common. But the user agent string is a common giveaway, as is screen size, operating system, and available fonts. But there are mitigation techniques which can be applied, and having the above will still make it more difficult to track you. Keep in mind, the more people running these countermeasures, the more everyone begins to look the same. So shill them to your friends and family. It protects all of us.

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.

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.

Alternatives to ffserver (streaming/broadcasting server in general)

ffserver lost support in 2018 and I want a streaming server solution. mkvserver_mk2 is recommended here:, but it doesn't seem like it's updated frequently (I don't want meaningless updates, but general maintenance, there's issues that have been open for years that haven't been fixed) and doesn't seem like there's a lot of eyes on the code and I don't know how secure it is. There's, but chinese who live in china maintain it. I would use this since it seems to have a lot of eyes on it and regular maintenance, but I don't know what kind of botnet PRC has implanted into the code base. The nginx-rtmp-module looks good, but the legal situation of nginx seems precarious to build something on: openrtsp - eh. They don't have a repository and requires manually checking for new tarballs to extract and then compile against. Interesting though. I know you can do h264 streaming with apache, but I want more codecs that aren't over encumbered by patents depending on the way the wind blows. I'm struggling to find good open source alternatives that don't have aforementioned issues. pic is unreleated

Grsecurity can do as it pleases with your code.

Look, when Grsecurity decides to add additional terms between it and it's customers: that's a business decision, protected by American Business Law. Your copyright bullshit doesn't override that. Sure, if Grsecurity was operating as a charity it might have to abide by the linux kernel license and not add additional terms when distributing it's changes to the linux kernel and the compiler. But it's not. It's operating as a Business. It can add any additional terms it wants when distributing for pay to it's Customers. This is a Fundamental american freedom as confirmed by the Supreme Court. Additionally Grsecurity did it's due dilligence by having an attorney from the Patent Bar look over it's business plan and the Patent Bar attorney found no copyright problems: American Business law gives an absolute right to conduct Business with whatever customers one wants to; and to cut off any customers one wants to at anytime: INCLUDING as a forewarned penalty if an act of redistribution to non-customers occurs. It doesn't matter what linus' copyright rights are to his work, nor what his license supposidly allows. American Business Law allows Grsecurity to add whatever additional terms it wants to when working with IT'S CUSTOMERS. It has chosen to add: No redistribution, Forum is Penn. State, Law is Penn. Law, No liability if penalty for illicit redistribution is enacted. Grsecurity has the RIGHT to protect it's PROPERTY: which are the changes it has chosen to make to the Linux Kernel and the GCC compiler. It does NOT matter what linus thinks his copyright means. It doesn't mean anything. Which is WHY linus hasn't spoken up: He knows he has no legs to stand on: his copyright isn't worth trash. Same with RMS and the Free Software Foundation and their GCC compiler: Their copyright isn't worth trash. All Programmers Agree: Patches are not subject to the original copyright holders copyright. Patent Bar lawyers agree as well.

They're attacking you for two reasons: 1) To save money: To prevent another multi-million dollar settlement (FSF vs Cisco). With you gone it wont happen. They also don't want to have to "pay off" the FSF by contributing donations either (which would increase your ability to hire lawyers and sue violators (even when the outcome of the action is difficult to predict (thus no contingency))). 2) Cultural reasons: the rest of the "they" believe that you like young girls: In your heart. And they oppose any man liking girls. That is: they believe you have thoughts and they oppose any man having such thoughts. Men are mules that must work for, fight, and give their life for women, their country, etc. Not live for themselves. Not have happiness. Only toil and responsibility. You noted once that your life has been incredibly sad. Being denied the purest love would fit the bill. They hate you for what they think you believe in your mind. What they believe that they have deduced from your previous wrightings. They hate you for your thoughts they ascribe to you. For having those thoughts. For being capable of having those thoughts. We've been defending you in the various programmer and anime forums, including your previous statements. For years, and now aswell. The namecalling is going every which way and both sides hate eachother: On one side there are the old hackers, the men, and the anime-lovers, the NEETs. The beloved language is C. On the other side are the wage-workers, and the Rust programming language (C++ ... plus plus... basically: and it takes just as much memory to compile as C++ code). The fight is as hot as molten lead: and there is real true hatread.

Holy shit this is slow. I never tried a "green" hard drive before and this is the last time I ever waste my time on these pieces of shit. Ever bought something only to regret it the very moment you started using it? If so what was it?

Budget storage with tapes in 2020

I've got a lot of stuff I want to have archived on mediums that will last a long time just sitting around. I'm currently looking at LTO tapes, likely LTO-5 so I can use LTFS on Linux. I'm sort of skimming around ebay to find a cheap drive. Has anyone here ever used tapes and know what would be accessible for a relatively decent desktop? I'm mostly looking for externals as I don't think my case has support for front facing drives, but I do see some trays where a CD drive would be on an older device. For context, this is primarily for a small business's software dev, raw assets, and records down the line. Along side, I'll set some tapes aside for animu and vidya personally, and it's mostly permanence of tapes and the low cost per GB as time goes on. I don't want to spend on software and am hoping that I can get a drive in the 200-300$ range that supports the things I mentioned. Anyone have some insight? Also general tape/data hoarding thread I suppose.

/t/ for the Infinity Winter Cup 2020!

Hey there, /t/! We're in the process of organizing a new edition of The Infinity Cup or /icup/ for short, a virtual soccer tournament pitching various boards and imageboards against each other, and we're trying to find out if any of the boards that previously joined us wanted to reserve a spot in the final tournament. Since your team was already present in previous iterations, we already have both your roster, your kits and logos, so the only thing we ask of you if you want to join is the following: 1) Making sure your team has the correct number of medals (1 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze), which you can see from the wiki page; 2) Making a thread over at with your team's pledge, you just need to make a new thread telling us that your board wants in on the cup. Optionally) Assign player cards, roles and special strategies to your players, which can be referenced from the following wiki articles: Optionally2) Change roster names and/or give us 3D models to use for your team, or new kits or whatever contribution you'd like. I hope to see you guys on the pitch!

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

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; }

>The Trump administration has unveiled a five-part plan to remove the presence of Chinese tech companies from the American Internet. Dubbed "Clean Network," the program aims to disrupt Chinese espionage efforts and prevent any censorship decisions being made at the whim of the Chinese government. >According to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the new program is an expansion of the White House's 5G Clean Path initiative that was announced earlier this year and targeted Chinese telecom equipment providers like Huawei, Hikvision, Hytera, and ZTE. >Clean Network would extend that same attitude towards "untrusted applications from US mobile app stores." One obvious example is TikTok, which is now facing an outright ban unless Microsoft can buy the entirety of its global operations. Pompeo told CNBC that "with parent companies based in China, apps like TikTok and WeChat and others are significant threats to personal data of American citizens, not to mention tools for Chinese Communist Party content censorship."

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.
