>The U.S. Federal Communications Commission next month is planning a vote to kill Obama-era rules demanding fair treatment of web traffic and may decide to vacate the regulations altogether, according to people familiar with the plans.

>The move would reignite a years-long debate that has seen Republicans and broadband providers seeking to eliminate the rules, while Democrats and technology companies support them. The regulations passed in 2015 bar broadband providers such as AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. from interfering with web traffic sent by Google, Facebook Inc. and others.

>FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, chosen by President Donald Trump, in April proposed gutting the rules and asked for public reaction. The agency has taken in more than 22 million comments on the matter.

Are you guys ready for the Internet™️?

Why does internet censorship have to look like that ? It could just like a generic all category being ridiculously priced, or just specificed popular sites blocked. (Comcast Internet Premium - stream media from netflix, youtube). There doesn't have to be a channel like , explicitly optin to each video on a website.



wishful thinking: the post

But I'm sure we'll find a way aroun it, or maybe we'll all have to deal with having limited access and we'll finally be able to focus on our projects instead of spending our time talking to NEETS on siberian braiding forums.

Before AOL fiercely publicized the Web people would have to use a shitty 800 baud telephone connection to download a couple textfiles so that they could get a little bit of information that would allow them to make slightly better use of their 128kb RAM personal computers. Nowadays we just come to *chan to post frog pictures in some flamewar about whether we should prepend GNU/… to every other noun and to poselytize our particular choice of tools alledging that we're all in for GUIs with more bells and more whistles because our attention span is too limited for us to focus on a simple project because everybody keeps telling us that our language sucks, though every other language out there sucks just the same.

I barely use the internet anymore if not for downloading books, if only I had my resources limited so that I wouldn't just jump into libgen.io and would instead work on meshnet routing protocols instead of just complaining that web browsers are oh so bloated…

Was I complaining about a wishful thinking post?

I kinda think this might be a good thing in the end. Trying to prevent abuse of technology with red tape is only ever a temporary measure, and as long as abuse is prevented that way there is very little motivation to develop technological solutions to the abuse. Not to mention telicoms have already found ways around the red tape in the form of datacaps and selecting groups of affiliated streaming services that don't count towards your data alotment. Telicoms have come up with new and creative ways to fuck us while we just sit idle, protected by an imaginary barrier that, as we see now, can come crashing down at any time. There are no such things as political solutions, only technological ones. With political "solutions" you give the power to some agency charged with enforcing the law, these agencies can become corrupt or be disolved. With technological solutions the users hold the power, and that power is inherent in and inseperable from the technology.

Don't get me wrong, it's gonna suck hard for a while, but the pain is nessary to advance. Information wants to be shared. We will come out of this victorious and with a network more resiliant than ever.


I'm not even a US citizen but shit like this makes my blood boil. Some people keep telling me not to worry about it, we are not affected, we won't be affected, Americans deserve this etc. but I just can't see how this is ok. It's a classic example of rich corps trying to rip off simple citizens and smaller organizations with brouzouf and now with their freedom of ditributing or acquiring information as well. It's plain disgusting. Am I just way too autistic, or are my online companions shazbots?



>It's a classic example of rich corps trying to rip off simple citizens

Yeah, but you see, rich corps are on both sides here.

No matter who wins, simple citizens lose.

That's why there's no much point to worry about it.

I understand your hope and your concerns so just know that only the boards listed know about the boards listed unless someone already knows about the different ones.


kek, what are you doing on /cyber/?

>all these crazies! they're so crazy! but I'm going to jack into the matrix I'm so /cyber/ uber hax oh yea brouzouf baby

I mean come on, it's time to wake up. the rest of the world is crazy. we are the superior base level.





No. Get this shitposting out of /cyber/, the boards in OP have nothing to do with the scope of this board.



>I'm going to jack into the matrix I'm so /cyber/

I don't think you understand this board tbh

Get out of here with your pseudoscience and newage bullshit




fuck off shills. you have no idea how much in common /cyber/ has with these other good boards. that, or the community here is only obsessed with the style but not the underlying culter of what it means to be /cyber/. the good anons will unite, and they will have good discussions. shills like you will never stop that from happening.

Hey guys, a few of the smaller cyberpunk communities are doing a thing this year, figured you chummers might want in.

Long story short, just going to be flooding the #cyberpunkmonday hashtag with cyberpunk talk. With /cyber/ practically dead, could be a chance to reconnect the community a lil.

See you guys there.

This board isn't dead at all, it's just super slow because we're only few regular members




Thank you



the PPH on this board used to be ~10-15. now it's generally speaking <1.

if that isn't dead enough to you, i'm not sure what is.



When I think of a dead board, I think of boards like /poke/

Well, you could easily use a microwave motion sensor - which has way better sensibility than IR - and glitch it to adjust the distance. I think it can be easily done with Arduino.


Not very easy to do, given the current state of the available drones average flight time. Though I think that with a DIY solar powered drone it would be quite viable.

How come nobody said anything of smart glasses? I guess Google's fiasco is a reason, but anyways… I would like to see something like this (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vue/vue-your-everyday-smart-glasses/description) but that could be able to embody forks and such. They say they're opening their API but don't link any resources to it. Seems like they are going proprietary.



>a drone following you

Great way not to attract any attention!



Well, it started with the idea of making a light flash if someone is very close to you, to be turned on at night.

But, since this board has no grounding in reality at all, the kids took it and ran with it, and now we've got kids talking about AI and drones, stuff they obviously know nothing at all about.

I still think the concept of wearable technology as a replacement for spikes in the next iteration of the punk jacket is an interesting idea.



>not having a sentient car that stays in your vicinity and can come to aid if needed

It's like you never seen Knight Rider, because holy shit I would love a car that did exactly that!



How do you think trends are created, dumbass?

What a cool cyber name for a language.

You want to pretend to be cool and ununderstandable? Just learn Classic Latin.

Eh, one of Esperanto's "selling points" was how by learning it you'll be partially learning other European languages as a bonus.



Esperanto is far from being ununderstandable

Latin isn't hart to understand either.

what purpose does a knife have other than utility? autisTHETICS?



Im pretty sure he meant utility as in only made for one job, which that knife looks like it is (probably for fish or meat).

America 2019: Net Neutrality has failed and the ISP's own goddamn everything. Content, transmission: they own it all. They charge you double to access parts of the web they don't like.

In this potential dystopia world, how does a schway cyberpunk circumvent the restrictions of the corporatists to access the internet?

Meshnets? The old stand-by's of Tor and a VPN won't help you here (they'll just block 'em). In this hypothetical dark age of the internet, how would you fight the corps and circumvent this egregious offense to freedom of information? It may not be long until we can't access 8ch anymore; now's the time for a solution.

The best thing to do if the vote goes through, wait till it gets absolutely shit and see if riots happen in your local area. That's the best outcome to this, but most likely you'll have to join or set up mesh net since people might just be corpcucks and say, "just go for the economic package, why are you being so serious about this?"

>I hate that i chose chemical engineering as a major, if i had chosen CS or some engineering related to pcs i could understand this better.

Grass is always greener on the other side I guess, but I really wish I didn't choose CS when going to university.

As I see it now, chemist with some CS knowledge is way better than CS specialist who doesn't know anything else.

But unlike chemistry, computers are easy to learn at home, which is exactly what I did, xkcd related.

Or replace "chemistry" with electronics, economics, psychiatry, gender studies, whatever, statement still stands.



By the way, i have started learning C some months ago, and assembly. I've been reading on networking too.

My idea is to be able to REALLY understand what's going on on my pc. Because i feel like blindly following guides on the Internet could fuck my shit up too, even if i trust the chans a bit more that the propaganda bloated mainstream.

Do you think i'm wasting my time?



Not in my mind, but I'm biased towards encouraging people to learn about computers and shit.

Has anyone done any homebrew computer stuff? I don't mean going to pcpartpicker or something, but buying your own CPU, the ROM, the RAM, etc and wiring/soldering it all up, basically like an integrated circuit.

I recently became fascinated with the Zilog Z80 processor that has been used in many, many, things, and considering using that as a processor for a computer.

In my research, I found this:


I've considered also just building a C/PM computer, but I want the joy of actually writing my own bootloader and OS.

What are your thoughts/experiences on this?

1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


I looked into making a TTL computer once, you can look up TTL computer and find homemade computers that are made with kinda simple components that are a bit easier to understand

If you're interested in the z80, here's an article on it from last month; https://hackaday.com/2017/10/26/hackaday-prize-entry-the-minimalist-z80-computer/



That's an ambitious project. You might want to start modestly, but whatever you do, please please post here from time to time so we can learn from your mistakes.


There's my father's old Soviet ZX Spectrum clone lying on my table, and I'm trying to resurrect it.

>ZX Spectrum was the cheapest home micro computer on European market, beating competition by a margin.

>Despite that Sinclair still managed to make massive profits from it, because it was literary built from garbage.

>When schematics reached Soviet block, people there didn't have access to any good components and had to cut down costs even further.

>Out of all Soviet speccy clones, Leningrad-1 is considered to be the cheapest and shittiest one.

>Leningrad-1's schematics and PCB mask were copied with a malfunctioning fax machine, introducing an additional error, that could destroy your ICs.

>unpopulated PCBs made with that mask were sold on grey markets across provincial parts of Russia, where my father got a hold of one.

>In addition, my father couldn't find some required ICs while building this thing and had to improvise.

>Later on the board was used as a donor for other projects and then was rotting in a garage at the bottom of some box for ~20 years.

So you can imagine the depth of the situation I've gotten myself into.

And considering my lack of experience with restoration, I'm seriously in over my head.

There's rust flakes everywhere, capacitors look like someone chewed them, lots of components missing.

Even some PCB traces are falling off, and when you fix one thing, two other things break.

For now I replaced the oscillator and even got almost stable video signal out of this thing.

CPU appears to be working too, but only when I take it out of PCB and stick into a breadboard.

On the other hand, when I hook power directly to the board, I have a serious voltage drop (from 5V to fucking ~4.3V) and CPU doesn't get enough juice to start up.

So, I'm not sure Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


File: 945d754953d2e20⋯.pdf (3.12 MB, ZX-Spectrum-sm.pdf)


I don't know if experimenting with a PICkit 3 counts, I have no results to brag about just yet.


Your post brought a few extra drops of polymer lubricant in my optical sensor implants.

The voltage drop is more than likely to be caused by a faulty capacitor somewhere close to the CPU.


I think I'd probably do an Apple clone, just because there's more information and the parts are probably easier to find.

Check this series out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXllm5JWWAs

The thing that holds me back, though, is questioning what I'd use it for? There are projects to take something from this generation and add an ESP8266 modem, so you can do text BBS systems again, but you can more easily do that with any widely available CHIP or Pi Single Board Computer.

I've just downloaded /g/entoomen library. Use this thread to discuss good uses for it.

21 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


wow i didnt seen a post with sense like this for a while.

so, will be usefull if we start posting the selecteds for the begginner library. START NOW.. i will suggest for the serious begginner, the Tenenbaum books, especially, Operating Systems, and Computer Networks



I am unaware of how skillful most people here are, but I would suspect most would benefit from

COMPTia A+, NET+ , Security+ Core for IT.



The library also needs to stop using scanned PDFs. There should be some community effort to switch to some format that uses less than 100MB per book. OCR should do most of the trick.



Does /cyber/ have a wiki ?



There's wiki.installgentoo.com but ultimately it never went anywhere though there is some minor activity on it still.
