What is the impact of using TLS on an .onion URL like this? Is it redundant? And/or is it counterproductive?

ANYONE can produce a valid cert



valid = accepted by browsers



having those annoying warnings for self signed certs is just another jewish trick. its not like any normie ever checks if the cert is really right and theres rarely any way to do that because no one tells the information thats needed for it



It pisses me off to no end when idiots like you pretend to know what they're talking about in 8chan. If you don't know, it's fine, but don't go pretending you do and spread false information, just shut the fuck up.

OP was talking about hidden services (hence ".onion URLs"), what you described was merely using Tor as a proxy to the clearnet, hidden services do not work like that.

How far are we from the kind of tech that's in this book? For those that haven't read it, I'm talking about practical, ubiquitous AR, augmented reality. In the book, essentially everyone has non-intrusive, wearable computers in their clothes that produce images on contacts, and the input consists of specific eye-movement and by moving other parts of the body in certain ways. It's so powerful and comes so natural to the people in the setting that they function like they have the calculator software and all the other tools in their brains. On their way to work, as they look around, they see their favorite fictional setting on top off the real world, in a safe way. And everything's connected to the network. Will 5G make this stuff possible? Great book, by the way.

So you mean to say that fiction is crap and people shouldn't mistake how reality works for how fiction works?

Tell that to OP, or to most adults in the developed world.



Hard to say. A lot of people can notice the world and the economy is broken, but it's broken in such a complicated way that very few people actually understand why or how.



>How far are we from the kind of tech that's in this book?

I'm sure we have it now but a phone is all that's necessary at this point. The loosening of restrictions on recreational drugs is the next likely step towards keeping people entertained. Anything else is too much work.



It's not hard to say once you understand the mechanisms.

For instance, reading "The Lost Science of Money, by Stephen Zarlenga" clarifies much, and then "Web of Debt, by Ellen Brown".

Of course, then you need to know Market Mechanics, just like Physics.

You link the knowledge and you're done.

Something like a 3rd of every CPU is government property in that novel.

It's basically a Chinese-survalience (only worse) level society, but less authoritarian/draconian.

Vernor wrote it a couple years after 9/11 IIRC, and tried to imagine how societies would addapt to the threat of terrorism in a high-tech society that makes it easy for individuals to cause lots of damage.

He envisioned all hardware and software requiring backdoors as I've stated. I find it funny that intel ME came out around a year later. This means intel was probably developing that stuff while he was writing the novel.

I have to wonder if he had friends on the inside who straight up told him what they were doing and why,



>Turning a hard drive into a listening device doesn’t have anything to do with its data storage capabilities. Instead, the team leveraged the sensors that help control the position of the read head above the platters.

>Any vibration can alter the position of a hard drive, so a modern hard drive is sensitive enough to pick up even minute disturbances in the platter. Yes, even human speech shows up in the PES data.

Long story short, the signal needs to be loud and the attacker needs physical access, but HDDs can be turned into microphones now.

SSDs still can't compete for the price-point of larger HDDs. Especially with software bloat and HD movies being a thing, most people I know have a PC with both: an SSD with a size 256 or 512GB that has the OS and programs that work better with rapid access, while the HDD (sometimes multiple) in the 2-4TB range stores most of the media and program data.

You're right about the laptops and phones, though. I built my PC myself so I know damn well there isn't a microphone in there, but it does have an HDD. Good thing I don't have a habit of talking to myself.


I could swear I heard of this a few years ago?



I could swear punctuation has rules?


That's a lot of fan noise to sort through.



This is why you should keep your HDDs in a NAS in your basement.


I hear many people talking about their UNIX addiction. The thing is that they rarely understand that UNIX is truly addictive.

I remember back in the day when I weighed 260 pounds and felt miserable, I lived on UNIX. It was a staple in my religion. I bought 2 licenses of UNIX System V. I gorged on them, had ed sandwiches and smothered my shellscripts in metacharacters.

My body ached, I was lethargic and depressed..

Thankfully, hypnosis changed my life. I used hypnosis for UNIX addiction as well as for weight loss and overall lifestyle change.

The result is that today I have a large amount of no desire for UNIX. I lost about 115 – 120 pounds and I feel great.

My hypnosis for weight loss program can help you too. If you are struggling with UNIX addiction or just want to lose weight, call or email me now. Together, no matter where you may live, we can develop a hypnosis program for you.

Pic related, it's what all you UNIX weenies look like.

If it works the same way, does the same thing, has the same issues, and was based on it, then arguing that they are not the same thing is just being pedantic. They are identical enough that "GNU is not Unix" is a thing. Even the name is defensive. ReactOS doesn't work like Windows, and it doesn't do what Windows does. It's not Windows, it's shit. If it was Windows, then it would actually be viable as a Windows replacement, but it doesn't replace much of anything, does it? And it won't be until the world suddenly becomes not shit and Microsoft is forced to release the source code for every version of Windows, excluding only possibly the current one, because they are clearly enforcing a monopoly, since nothing is allowed to replace Windows. But that will never happen. But don't forget that Microsoft loves dude open source, dude.

GANNOO and the BSDs are what Unix ended up becoming, they are just branches of the same thing. Barely any practical differences between them. Still Unix. Still a disappointment, and generally shitty. Living proof that if something is dude open source, it will last until the end of times no matter how shitty it is, and it will forever be an excuse to never invent anything better. Then again, that is kinda harsh. It's not that bad. Not compared to the software that runs on it. If it wasn't for that, then it could be more decent. Give me Windows 95 levels of usability and I'll be happy. And it should have the same performance for the same amount of features, and actual design. None of this decent performance but nothing but a window manager bullshit. Do that on Windows and it will be much lighter. We had everything back in the day, so it's possible. Not even 95, Windows 7 is fine too, by current standards. Just compete with anything decent that Microsoft has ever made and Unix can be usable enough until someone makes something else.

RMS chose to make GNU Unix-like for mere compatibility reasons, since Unix was a popular system at the time. That way, encouraging people to use his OS would have been much easier than it were completely different. It has was never a technical choice based on the actual quality of Unix.

The main goal of GNU and the FSF is, and has always been, spreading the idea of free software, not necessarily make a "Unix-like" system, or even a "perfect" system from a functional point of view.

If you look at major GNU projects such as Emacs, in fact, which were not part of the original Unix system, they are anything but "Unix-like" in functionality, code and underlying philosophy.

The name "GNU is not Unix" is not defensive. If anything, it's making it clear that the system, despite mostly looking and working like Unix on the outside, is _not_ Unix, and considering it "what Unix ended up becoming" is just wrong.

With every bird genociding kike shilling for 5G radio communications it's highly coincidental that no one seems to be interested in implementing wider Li-fi infrastructure.

Li-fi has none of the microwave botnetting of regular 5G but speeds akin to fibre but without fibre wires, yet for some reason there is little interest in this technology.

Self-driving glowmobiles could share information of local interest through their daytime LED lights with other glowmobile peers, when waiting at an intersection they could recieve wide Area traffic information through Street lamps thus lowering wireless signal congestion while causing less cancer to boot.

Glowphones with Li-fi sensors wouldn't even need to connect to any regular wireless networks when traversing something as light polluted as Manhattan, the entire wireless signal congestion issue would be a meme once everyone's devices glow in the dark and low botnet density Areas should do fine with LTE-A for the time being anyhow.

All exploring alternative content that would be censored on youtube. Unfortunately you have to get an invitation to register. But at least there's now a youtube without censorship. Even flat earth videos are allowed!

Anyone a real pro with html, css?

So I've been having a problem with this table for the past couple hours... I'm trying to make a simple table consisting of three cells, so one row and three columns. I want the middle column to be centered with the span I place inside of it and the other outside cells taking up the rest of the space within the table. I've included a picture to better help explain what I'm trying to do...

What keeps happening is the top table. What I want it to look like is the bottom table. I'm using inline-block for the middle cell which is what I want, the middle cell then changes to fit the text inside of it perfectly, but then the two outside cells do not fill the gaps completely. There's weird spaces between them. Any suggestions on what to do? Thanks.

>background-size: cover;

I just noticed that I wrote something that's probably not supported by IE5.

You can just place this in the div if you care about that:

<img src="image.jpg" style="width:auto; min-width:100%; height:auto; min-height:100%; z-index:-1;">


I just looked it up. min-width is supported since IE7. Cover since IE9. So I only got down 2 IE versions. I could probably go down more if I would accept the image not filling the screen or being stretched.



Assuming the background image is widescreen I could do:

<img src="image.jpg" style="height:100%; width:auto; z-index:-1;">

However that's of no use. Going further down with that banner=screen requirement is impossible since CSS "position" is only supported since IE 7.

So we're watching a mystical space monkey that can only say "yes" or "no", and sometime doesn't say anything at all. When something bad happens, we turn to the monkey for explanation: it happened because the monkey said "yes", or because it said "no", or because it didn't say anything for too long.

I both love and fear the mystical monkey.

That's obviously bullshit, but just to be sure, how does that help ecology exactly and what are exact power sources you using? Maybe your servers were produced with 100% renewable energy as well?

Fuck you and your pretend-to-care-to-milk-more-of-those-shekels-out-of-plebs attitude. You are going nowhere.




Image search is still top notch tho.


Botnet, but it isn't botnet. There was a thread a while ago outlining this problem: 'propietary' free software, FOSS that is too big to be properly maintained, modified or audited, and as such, provide temporary or even permanent backdoors, or vulnerabilities exploited by many agents. The best example of this is Poetterware; software coming out from Red Hat aiming to standardize the GNU/Linux desktop experience, carrying all this baggage with itself for no practical reason concerning the end user, and often written in part or in whole by Lennart Poettering.

In this thread, I'm asking for a bit of a clarification on a few examples of what is and isn't, as well as tips to recognize, avoid and replace it.

What everyone here agrees about:


I don't need to say anything about this, we've heard about it for years. It's obvious.


Something something about needing no configuration when networking.


Allowing users to turn off the computer without admin privileges, among other things.

Why not just use the suid bit?


Using wpa_supplicant and dhcpcd is a breeze, why bother with this.


This piece of software was memed on by many people because it simply did not work, but is it really that bad? The fact that Poetter wrote it already makes me allergic, but I'm not too well informed about its code quality. It does "just werk", but who knows how much shit it needed to just work.

What I am not sure about, but most likely is:

>what do you mean by saying 'bsd-like' license?

Sorry I should say non-copyleft.



You can use the term "permissive free software licensing". The term of permissive refers to the fact that distributors have permission to fork the free software into a proprietary software project.

I'm reading the paper posted by Fredrick Brennan regarding the different approaches of making a decentralized image board and i came to this part.

"In a BitTorrent-like magnet

network, unpopular or old images can fall out of the network over time, but in a

blockchain, all images must be stored forever no matter what they depict."

I think there is a clear winner here being the bit torrent approach, follow the approach most chans have traditionally used that old/inactive images/threads fall out of the ecosystem of the board.

>censorship of the bootstrap peers stops people from connecting to the board.

You only need to bootstrap to the network. Connecting to specific domains can't be blocked.

>peers listed in the DHT there's absolutely zero anonymity

Knowing who connected to the network doesn't tell you who's sending or downloading specific files. Read how tor works.


We just need an IPFS-based imageboard, that is all



Anon, no. IPFS can only serve static content, you can't make interactive services only over ipfs. You still need a centralized site to send new posts to and update the pages of the imageboard.

I have been reading a bit about freenet and I think if somebody were to make a decentralized imageboard they should use freenet first as a proof of concept. It's an infrastructure that works an it's been heresince 2001 you also have several nodes for your use. Blockchain based imageboard on the other hand sounds ridiculous because the point of imageboards is that things shouldnt be permament and besides, who the fuck would want to synchronize a huge blockchain every time they make a post? It would be like usenet where you require server rooms to hold the content. It's in no way a sustainable censor-resistant internet infrastructure, that shit will flop like usenet.

Either way, freenet already has filters supported for images and mp4 so technically an imageboard is feasibly to implement on freenet. After that you can work on extending the network to make it even more censor-resitant.



>You have to be able to delete something across the network

No, you don't.

>Not only should posts be synced between hosts, but banlists and hashbans should too

This should be optional.

>Nodes can ban people, and they can also subscribe to ban lists and delete lists by other server operators if they wish. Not required. If a host is sending you a bunch of illegal content or they refuse to delete what you delete, you can unlink from them.

Sounds like a waste of resources because changing your identity is effortless and users shouldn't be trackable anyways.
