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/

>>4466 For some reason, it just started working again a couple days ago. I didn't change anything.
hydrus absolutely dies when trying to load many files, in the hundred thousand range. As expected. It's even worse when you try to add a tag to all this files as a batch. can something be done that allows the user to apply tags to a bunch of files in a search, without loading the actual files? For example, if I search feet, and it returns 200k results, I can add a tag to all those 200k results without actually trying to get hydrus to load all of them at once so it doesn't kill the client? By the way, a dynamic loading feature would be nice as well, instead of trying to load all results at once.
The suit tag has a 'meta:junk tag' next to it... what should I be using instead of 'suit'?

>>4479 >By delivering a product with a different name and looks, Microsoft will be able to swipe away Win10's bad repo and start again It's basically the same shit MS pulled when they made Windows Vista SP3 and decided to name it Windows 7, since the Vista name was also forever tarnished with the disastrous RTM build. At least with Vista SP3, Microsoft actually got their shit together enough to justify changing its name to Windows 7. But at that time MS wasn't an indian company ran by a sociopathic pajeet manlet that hates white people and full of diversity hires, so I have my doubts if they will repeat that redemption story.
Also reminder that since 2015 and until very recently, MS would stomp their feet saying Windows 10 was supposed to be "the last Windows" and that a full new release would never happen again, they would just forever keep releasing new builds (like a 22H1). Of course anyone who isn't a slack-jawed mouthbreathing drone knew this was pure marketing / pr bullshit, but this sudden backpedaling is still pathetic and so far I didn't see anyone calling MS out on it and demanding they give an explanation.
W10 looks like shit and this looks like garbage I fucking hate W10 so much and I'm forced to keep it on my work laptop because my colleagues are mongoloids and higher ups demand it

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.

>>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.
I can say that I've been using tor for illegal activity. Not kiddie bullshit. But actual over state line . Packages filled with drugs etc. I did it for 4 years straight never had an issue. Once FBI showed at my residence but I later pieced together it was an old friend who was knowledgeable of what i was doing . And exactly what he knew is exactly what I was questioned about . The FBI agent had some virgin with him he pays to translate for him because they are literally so behind on tech they need to outsource their nerves. They even offered me to work for them and said I can make alot of money ... ( yeah right ) no I'm good . So anyways the point to this was. Tor was actually more secure than my friends and family was. I looked up recently i transferred over 3 bitcoins over a 4 year period. Just VPN and tor. And sometimes I'd connect to a open wifi. And for messaging always use a PGP program to encrypt your communications back and forth. Or use protonmail etc. I do want to emphasize there is truth to the relays and nodes being owned by some government. And the OP is fully correct by saying the more we use adopt and set up ourselves. Thr less power they have. But just take my story and ask yourself if what your doing is worse than what I was doing and they didn't catch it. Or didn't care enough. . OR tor actually helped keep my identity private .

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?

>>4402 if you want to generally unfuck your shit pronto get a computer from system76, purism or starlabs. to avoid/mitigate the hardware Cpu backdoors (AMD PSP and Intel Management Engine) On the topic of google, amazon, microsoft, all social media being spyware Yes yes they do that's how they make money. In reality you can only half avoid them so at least use a search engine that doesn't claim to harvest all your info like duckduckgo. if you want to completely avoid them use almost exclusively the tor browser (as it's currently the best browser for privacy and run Yacy search in private mode for your own personal search engine ( you can set it up to be accessible through tor ). it's not open source it has a back door and if it doesn't the government will gag order and force the company to put one in.

Browser and Internet Privacy Thread Anonymous 08/13/2020 (Thu) 06:48:58 No. 984 [Reply] [Last]
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.

Freenode is a honeypot that blocks Tor. Does Libera.Chat block Tor?

Looks like Gentoo, Arch, and Artix have all moved to Libera.Chat. Tor is supported there now, too.
