Teach me about messing around with hardware, old computers are cheap enough to make some dumb projects but I lack the required knowledge to do anything.


Well for starters it would be nice if you actually said something.


Get some SBC or SBMC kits and get some schematics for any laptops/computers you have access to.



get a soldering iron and learn how to solder faggot



> Wasting that much on silkscreen

The only way I would be more mad is if this board didn't do anything.

Anyway, if you want to get started, you probably want to learn a little about hardware, and assembly. I was taught with Logisim (http://www.cburch.com/logisim/) and MARS (http://courses.missouristate.edu/KenVollmar/mars/). I hear my uni has moved from MIPS to ARM since it's more relevant nowadays. I don't know of any good simulators for it though.

If you want to design your own boards eventually (and don't work at a big company that can shell out for E N T E R P R I S E software, check out LibrePCB (http://librepcb.org/) or go hardcore and learn VHDL/Verilog

Mind sharing some of the best one for that kind of activity?


Have any other anons killed anybody?



Not yet.



Does indirectly count?


I hosted an ai chat bot and turned it off.

Does that count as killing?

Thanks anon. I kinda like it too even though the colors don't fit too much but at least it's comfy. The other ones that caught my interest are too cold.



Looks dope, but a bit too bright for my current scheme. But I'm sure it would look dope with Arc Dark or some other GTK theme

Shut the fuck up lets talk about some cyber feels.

>We missed a bunch, don't try to deny it.

tfw you jack yourself into olduse.net, a server for live replaying the entire Usenet, time-shifted by 30 years. A portal, a wormhole to the past. Today is May 18, 1988. Great Naming was just completed one year ago, a new hierarchy known as alt.* arrived 7 months earlier.

You see people are talking just like us, but the quality of each post is comparable to a nowadays project mailing list. You see some memes in your 80x24 text console, and you find they are in fact an integral part of the hacker folklore. You don't see even a single shitpost. You see hackers with big names, were still playing around in their youths. Larry Wall, John Gilmore, except Linus Torvalds who hasn't yet to come… Richard Stallman's fine-tuning words for the GNU Manifesto You see the parties, clubs of the SF-fans, with their endless fan works of Star Trek. You see the first generation of otakus who are not weaboos, making anime fansubs with a VCR and an Amiga 500, running on Motorola 68k @ 7.16 MHz. You see pages of impassioned discussion in alt.cyberpunk. You see a new version of NetHack released out. The calling-for-mod and the flamewars.

This is the digital equivalent of sondering, except you can read their inside thoughts, recorded without a single missing NNTP-Posting-Host. Except the people and the age which has long gone. Finally you ended up with the same feeling in >>50442. It's only you, a /cyber/ user who is spending the whole night reading it, but for everyone else, who would remember this world on your screen, or even realize such a world ever existed in the first place? This place is irrelevant, ephemeral, and has already forgotten, died and buried…

I don't know why, I just think you're wrong for some reason.



This user gets it.

Inventing your own encryption algorithms is not as easy as OP's shazbot brain seems to think.

It involves lots of statistics and requires you to prove the algorithm's security mathematically.

"Nobody has broken it so far, so it must be secure" won't cut it. OP just wants a group of people who do work for him so he can feel like a cool 1337 h4X0r.

Most codemonkeys are closer to a hacker than you are.



Not sure if you are Saying I understand or don't but:

You largely do not design cryptography if you want security because cryptography is hard, and pretty much only huge institutions like universities and governments retain sufficient cryptography expertise to design cryptosystems.

Generally, most people use "Nobody has broken it so far" cryptography.

There are not many "perfectly / information-theoretically secure " crypto systems out there, and the most that are out there are inconvenient. (Cf. One time Pad - key distribution problems).

Instead most people use cryptosystems based upon computational infeasability of breaking the system. For instance, RSA is based upon the difficulty of factorizing integers. No one can easily factorize (54= 3^3 * 2) large intergers with few factors (say two large prime factors only). There is an algorithm for it that will run on a quantum computer (Shors Algorthim) that is fast, but qauntum computers at sufficient scale are not widely available if at all available. So, as long as factorizing integers remains hard, it is believed that RSA is useful "No one has broken it yet.. " . It could turn out that a government agency has figured out how to easily factorize integers on a classical or has developed large enough quantum computers to do so.

The Russians have developed their own cryptosystems and retain the expertise to do so. I don't know anything about them, but I would bet they are based upon similiar problems (Discrete-Log, Integer factorization) , etc.

Sometimes we want crypto-primatives like PRNG's to have nice statistical properties, but really modern cryptography is based on "No one has broken it so far,… " security.

Implementing your own crypto is stupid. Post Snowden some jihadist groups tried, and ending up producing trivially broken crypto.

But, Almost certainly, none of thaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



Was it not clear that I was opposed to the idea of implementing your own cryptography?

You literally elaborated on what I said. Don't get me wrong, not ungrateful, but I feel you misunderstood my position.

Hey /cyber/, I used to go on here a lot back in 2014-2016, and I met a couple people from that zeemaps post a long time ago and we'd really like to interact with some people from here, especially the OGs. Play some games, talk about cyber shit, do some dev projects if anyone's apt with that, etc.

I know Discord isn't a popular medium here but all my old Tox friends haven't been on in years.


Here it is, let's relive some old memories and do some fun cyber shit together.

The whole premise was dumb.

I never use my smartphone's features and I don't like the idea of having accounts and spyware in my phones software (yes i know about custom roms, my phone currently runs cyanogen, and if i could it would run replicant). So what are some cool old (or maybe new) phones that can be used on today's networks for about $50?

Hopefully it won't happen to 3G for a long, long time. You'll probably be able to find parts for your 4S for a decade or so too, I imagine.

So Lainchan just decided to remove their board index bar.

I guess Kalyx sold to, who, George Broussard and Cleve Blakemore?

Somebody about as coherent as a pit bull in a spin drier, at any rate.

I mean, who does that?

I guess I'm back here for the duration. This really doesn't bode well for the future of Lain.

Was the 90' and 00' the most cyber era , wasn't it ?



I think it was somewhere between the 80s and mid 2000s. After that, everything in the Internet became normie tier and people started giving away their info. The reality we live in its still very /cyber/ tough, just not the way the movies envisioned it.

This is actually a very interesting thread for me since I will become an authorized representative of a local cosmetic brand, so I will try to sell my stuff through the Internet and deliver it in a 3 to 4 km radius. I am already in a semi-athletic physique. Are there any tips you can give me?

I just remembered that many fictional universes use couriers as a way to avoid data theft, such as Faith (Mirrors Edge), YT (Snow Crash) and Chevette Washington (Virtual Light, pic related). This is not our reality and bike couriers are decreasing since you don't need to move many documents around in the digital age and there are better cryptography technologies

The question has been goin around in my head since a long time. Androids are constantly evolving, one day, they may eventually replicate humans at perfection (think blade runner)

Could it be possible, and understandable for and human to fall in love with and android, and artificial life form?

I personally think it is, to me, the nature of skin, bone, and flesh is expandable. All these materials can be faked, but mind and soul cannot be. Of course, an AI can try to replicate human mind and brai functions, but in this case, we are just gonna assume that the synthetic body is piloted by an human brain (Like Major Motoko Kusanagi in GITS)

I mean, what is the sole difference between meat and synthethic substance? appearence? not really, one day, synthethic technology will be able to fake everything so well you could hardly see the difference.

Physics properties? maybe, but I doubt it.

The only difference is in the human mind and nowhere else.

Like gally said in Battle Angel Alita.

"Brainchip or not, it doesn't matter. A human being is a human being"

What do /cyber/ think about that? this topic really interests me, I would like to have other people point of view.

>Could it be possible, and understandable for and human to fall in love with and android, and artificial life form?

Yes it is possible.

> A human being is a human being

Irrelevant when the synths will be like 100% human both in appearance and in interactions

The questions is how much of that love will synths be able to reflect back.



>The real question is if anyone would be able to resist falling in love with a mate engineered just for them.

This was a recurring question across the Chobits series.

Gibson wrote a few chapters in Count Zero, Virtual Light and most of his last book The Peripheral in rural areas.

It's fun for me, who grew up in a trailer, looking at his take on hicks in the high-tech future.

In Count Zero one of the characters has a super computer in his barn.



Ah I remember that section of CZ. He had quite a lot more than a super computer around his place
