I got online in 1995 with just a 28.8K modem, and it wasn't slow because most websites were small and didn't have big images. For porn, there was the local ISP's Usenet servers that were fast (because they were local, every ISP had one) and provided unlimited porn, if you just setup your newsreader to download overnight, when nobdy needed to use the phone (if you only had one line). All that Napster-type fileshareing and Livejournal-type social media shit came later on, in the very tail end of the 90's. There wasn't even much in the way of ads on websites, unless you went to geocities and such, and even there they were mostly just small banners, rather than 50 megs of javascript for tracking your ass like now. But a large fraction of websites were completely ad-less because they were actually hosted on people's own ISP accounts, because you got free webspace, gopherspace, and even FTP just by virtue of having a dialup Unix shell account (like netcom.com, for example). I even played online Quake through 1996-98 with the same dialup connedtion, and consistently got average 250-300 pings on servers in my country, which made the game playable. Spent a lot of time on those servers late at night even all night long sometimes, playing lots of mods and CTF. Then I dropped out when Quake II came out because it was lame, and haven't played online since. I ran Slackware, and then Debian the whole time, never that Windows garbage (it was totally lame compared to Amiga). One of the very first things I did when I got my ISP account was to head over to ftp.cdrom.com and download all 50-some disk images and write them to floppy. Then I dual-booted DOS and Linux Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

It's pretty much equivalent to telnet, yeah. Details here:

I had that stuff setup on my LAN back then, because rcp was really convenient for moving files around (now scp does the same thing).

Oh and here's some really old Doom-related sites that are still up:

http://www.gamers.org/doomgate/

http://www.montefiore.ulg.ac.be/~quinet/games/DEU/DEU-en.html

http://games.moria.org.uk/doom/du/

Except for a few I downloaded from a dialup BBS (and I can't remember which ones anymore), my very first PWADs came from the Doomgate site. Oupost 21, Deimos Subway, Doomsday of the UAC, all fucking mind-blowing. I ended up using DCK to make a couple of my own PWADs (which unfortunately were lost when HDD crashed), but they weren't nearly as good as the ones I mentioned. Later on, like 2010-15 I started actually making much better ones, and even made one with DEU 5.21 in dosbox, just for the hell of it. File is named hex-e2m9 if anyone wants to try it, but don't expect anything fancy, I'm very much a vanilla purist who loves 1994 style wads, where there aren't any set rules and anything goes.

I still play Doom on occasions, but the scene has largely moved on and I'm the minority now. Well that was really already the case in 2010, but it has gotten much worse now, so that's why I dropped out of that scene. Had the idea of making a classic Doom themed telnet/ssh BBS, but I doubt there's much interest for this. I have other important hobbies now like pic.

Not always, I've used this particular EQ to drive guitar amps and monitors.

Also more lights and buttons to keep a cyber aesthetic. Software based EQ controlled by hardware peripherals is the idea. Hopefully I can expand the ranges and precision a little more. Thinking about it more, I can overhaul and take out the LED monitor and put an OLED bit matrix instead.

I've seen another flexible antenna that could be printed to a piece of thin cardstock. That particular hackerspace used a bubblejet printer with silver based ink.

And on the topic of killdrone faggotry - a varying array of antennas could improve situational awareness of being able to ID controller RF… possibly even exploit backdoors left in DJI and similar makes.

Damn chummer. I was thinking something maybe the size of what you were suggesting FOLDED UP and then make that foldable. You could keep it unfolded in thin back pocket or fold up to prevent damage if necessary.

But, in all srs, its an antenna. With proper connectors they could easily be swapped for different purposes or replaced/upgraded as wanted.

Still, thanks.

>>54055

> Multiple Antennas / Printed Antennas

Truly nifty. I think the multiple antennas is a good idea, if even just for sheer utility. Though the cardstock idea sounds better for indoor/art stuffs…sounds like something to look into though, kinda like the cardstock PCBs?

Your reminding me how little I actually know about the backside of RF tho, I need to do some research!

Speaking of cardstock PCBs (and OP), just how advanced can we get on purpose built, disposable electronics? I continue to see little examples (little LED blink circuit, quarter-sized, on displays to draw attention; NFC tagging; cheap BT earbuds)

…hmmm…

Hows about artsy/cyber cards, printed with art backgrounds and lit via PCB printed over? Maybe directions to some rave/party/meetup/whatev via some NFC or teeny USB capable device, make it look cool via technique above?

If you whom posted about it, drop as much info as you can, as this sounds very useable.

I committed about all of 30 minutes trying to comb my ridiculous subscription list/saved videos. (really old, anon account - not tied to real name/phone)

I found something much better though, this is effectively /the/ whitepaper that explains everything you would like to know about the applicability. That file: https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Dong-Youn_Shin/publication/51831079_Printed_UHF_RFID_Antennas_with_High_Efficiencies_Using_Nano-Particle_Silver_Ink/links/00b495222dd2aa66e7000000.pdf?origin=publication_list

Now during my short search I did find a 3D printer company teasing with the idea of releasing a nanoscale printer that can print much smaller, tighter traces. Goes without saying that this is the step to creating thinner nano substrates that could host entire MCU/CPU. That video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDIF8N055j0

The next technical disruption may very well be hardware.

I wanted to make it usable when folded, so that you have it in your pack and still have better connection than if you had just a basic short wire one.

>With proper connectors they could easily be swapped for different purposes or replaced/upgraded as wanted

Yeah, but you don't get those in the field, which is where you'll most likely be when you're using those.

>I did find a 3D printer company teasing with the idea of releasing a nanoscale printer

There's a printer than can lay optic/carbon fiber between layers of nylon. That makes it a lot stronger but can also act as a faraday cage and can probably be used as a conductive wire.

A place to discuss afflictions that seem to fit a cyber setting and how.

The obvious are depression and schizophrenia, there are plenty of scenarios that incorporate them.

I think HPPD is a great candidate.

Please elaborate/give source! I know psychedelics can exacerbate latent psychotic illnesses, with genetically prone individuals more likely to suffer from an episode, but I've always known HPPD as more due to trace elements of the dose either frying your neurotransmitters or becoming lodged in them, causing your serotonin production to go haywire.

If it's something else I'd like to read up on it. I'm pro psychedelic as a tool for meaningful personal change and creativity and knowing the cause of the most frightening side effect of these is interesting to me.

Microsthma

Cause:

Inhaling nanobots designed for breaking down plastics, toxic silicates and other non biological purposes

Main Risk Factors:

- Counterfeit medicine and narcotics

- Cross contamination in aftermarket augmentations and surgery

Symptoms:

Similar to asthma early symptoms include restricted airways, mucus, coughing, wheezing. Untreated Microsthma can cause tumors, holes in the respiratory tract and lungs, internal bleeding, crippled immune system. In the final stages loss of motor functions, amnesia and eventually death.

Treatment:

- Quarantine [200 credits an hour]

- Electromagnetic shots [5000 credits a session]

- killswitch pulse direct from manufacturer [300,000 credits]

Prevention:

- Use of a filtered pollution mask

- Use of anti contamination facilities at workplace

- Avoid exposure to sea water

- Stay inside when rain acidity levels reach critical

- Do not ingest any non G-FDAC approved foods and liquids

- Report and avoid unlicensed surgeons and medical practitioners

- Do not flush medication

- Use of regulatory safety equipment when handling electronics

WARNING:

Intentional spreading of biological contaminates will result in a minimum life sentence

AI sickness

AI sickness comes about as a result of longterm untreated AI corruption in military tactical implants.

AI sickness displays as several stages.

>STAGE ONE: Victim begins to display disorientation and PTSD style symptoms including memory regression and mild hallucinations. Oftentimes victims will

>STAGE TWO: Mild Hallucinations are expanded into severe hallucinations. Eyes will become consistently bloodshot. Artificial eyes will routinely become unfocused and malfunction. Auditory hallucinations may develop. Occasional violent outbursts. This is the final treatable stage.

>STAGE THREE: Victim will no longer respond normally to outside stimuli and memory regression will become a locked state. Severe violent outbursts may occur. Beginning signs of complete psychosis may occur

>STAGE FOUR: Complete psychosis sets in. Victim will alternate between violent outbursts and self mutilation.

>STAGE FIVE: Catastrophic brain hemorrhaging occurs, followed by death.

Well, since the site in the sticky is down, I decided to make a hidden service containing useful cyberpunk links, including discussion, files, and more.

If you want another link on the page, just reply what link you want. If you need a new category, be sure to say it.

Actual link:

Has anyone read Nick Land? I like the /cyber/ feel of his stuff but I have to admit, I don't understand a lot of it. Any other things similar that may be more of a gateway? Or anything else that should be read before trying to understand Land?

Essentially…. Philosophy General

The last oyabun disappeared one month ago or so, which means /cyber/ is now under new administration.

Seeing the deplorable state of the board, I decided that maybe we could start talking stuff like civilized people, about what should we allow or not, or possible ways to boost board activity, in periodic meta threads, much like /tg/ does. Hopefully, this time it will not devolve in political shitflinging. If all goes well, maybe we could even manage to decide on a final design for /cyber/-tan. :^)

I think our user base is the the right size for a comfy time, some of us just need to remember that you can hide threads and individual posts, and that you don't need to engage everyone who is wrong on the internet and getting the last word in a pointless argument is equally pointless.

As an aside, while some are just trolls and some aren't, you may notice that the bulk of the people spouting at length about jews, nazis, antifa, trump, socialists, communists, pedophilia, etc. get most disruptive when conversation starts to get interesting, or when conversation is about how to heal divide or build communities. Maybe I'm paranoid but I see this all over the web outside of the big corporate platforms and it smells like an effort to keep tensions high and divisive conflict frequent in order to make sure no strongly rooted communities grow outside of their controlled spaces. Just something to think about.

You're not paranoid. Monitoring and subversion is very real, some bot is probably scraping this thread right now and sifting through data for triggers that tell operators to investigate further. Try going to 4chan /pol/, that place just feels off… We seriously need to think how to solve this problem. That is if we even have a chance. We're against well organized and well founded group with advanced training in cyber intelligence, information gathering, data analysis and psychological warfare. I'm fully aware that this sounds like some stupid conspiracy theory, but the fact is: this is our reality right now.

No, you're completely right this shit has been going on for a long while.

Honestly what hope do we have?, seems to me our best hope is to infiltrate them as they have infiltrated us.

I mean, anyone can come here and post, a simple captcha is not going to stop them, so how do we create communities that they can't access but that interested anons can? at the end of the day you'll never know who's on the other side of the screen so it seems impossible to me.

I don't want to be all "it's fucked, it's not worth trying to resist" but damn once you learn how easy it is to gather data about people and have an algorithm make sense of that data, it's quite discouraging.

I think that a lot of the net was protected for a time by memes, jargon and common culture. Our signal looked like noise to the powers that be. Unfortunately while the lexicon of the web is evolving faster than ever, it no longer outpaces their ability to decode it. Plus, memes have changed. When used for communication rather than just funnies, they used to be more metaphors for concepts or actions, now they are mostly analogies for emotional states. Even if we could outpace the efforts to decode our communications, I doubt we could shift the language of the net back to a more subtle and info-rich form. After all, you can't force memes. Plus now there are those working for the intelligence agencies who were raised on the net, so no matter what there will be at least a handful among them who speak our language. We need a memetic enigma machine.

Sage because this line of conversation isn't really on topic with the thread.

ITT: Post reasons why we are already living in a cyberpunk world.

I often see users complaining that the world isn't /cyber/ enough, but people are already doing all the cool things your read and watch and consume. Just you're sitting inside browsing /cyber/ instead of being /cyber/.

Webms, GIFs, videos etc appreciated.

I'll start:

•Riot police/swat

•Megacorporations (Namely Google)

•For-profit healthcare and prisons

•Overpopulation

•Drones (agricultural drones especially)

•Drone-jammers

•Google assistant/Amazon Alexa (& Google home, Amazon echo)

•Great disparities in wealth

•Boston dynamics, etc robots

•Lack of free speech

•Nuclear bombs

•High depression rates

•Targeted advertising

•Instant access to porn, entertainment online (dopamine releasing content)

•Consumer society

•Pollution & global warming

rebellion in its common definition will become impossible. At very minimum, you'd need to know how to encrypt/decrypt to secure messages (unless that Pattern-Seeking AI searches for any encryption? Create Exception for businesses?) As the tech that prys into our lives advances, we hope that its ability to counter it should increase.

And a hope that if such an Techno-Overlord gets created, someone, somehow, releases how it works.

Lain watching over me?

And yes, the lines of comm lines are not as discreet as they used to be, and your only real hope of 'anon' is to make it more trouble than it worth.

As well as a rapidly changing society in reaction to tech, and yet it will keep adavncing, and become even more chaotic.

/k/ has been spammed into oblivion for a few days with no backlash from the BO and now 80% of current threads are a mix of /int/ and /pol/. It happened before but these were shat on and ridiculed and they went down quite quickly due to bumps of quality threads and few of aforementioned ones but now it seems the only thread that gets some actual attention is QTDDTOT. I'm doing my research and occasionally bump SMG thread with posts but there's been little interest in that. Other old threads also suffer from lack of activity more. Maybe its not dead yet but this case, even if resolved, does show that something's going wrong with the board or BO.

I'm an occasional /k/ lurker and i have to say the threads i enjoy the most are those /int/ /pol/ ones, like the Syrian civil war thread.

I wouldn't say /k/ is dead, but i also wouldn't know how it was before.

Well, i'm more into weapons autism and while those other threads do contain some spirit of /k/, it's going to decline into just usual political shitflinging, especially when ww2 topic is touched.

All right, it's back. Sorry for the downtime. Also, be sure to make it clear that it's `SFTP` rather than just standard `FTP`.
