Of course, if you go back to the origins leftism was just those against the king. But you know very well I mean leftism today and not in Louis XVI's time. And that means idpol as you very well know.

Can anybody suggest some replacements to Linux's native virtual terminal?

Before you yell "bloat", "botnet", or even "sin", know that Linux's own terminal is essentially a terminal emulator in itself (instead of sending the text to a device, it just sends the text to itself), so the only real difference between it and a replacement is basically whether it runs in kernelspace or userspace (as far as I'm aware, there are no kernel modules which replace the VT. Something like that would interest me though).

Anyway, here's a list of ones that I know of, but I don't really know which one of them is best. Do any of you guys use these ones?

http://zhcon.sourceforge.net/ - Old, unfinished software which only implemented UTF-8 support in its last version. Not really a candidate, but it's included just to make this list comprehensive.

http://jfbterm.osdn.jp/ - Even older than the last one. Doesn't explicitly mention UTF-8 support, but I've heard people mention it here and there, so it probably has it.

https://github.com/uobikiemukot/yaft - This one could be pretty good, if it supports obscure stuff like sixels. I like to screw around with a lot of dumb shit.

https://repo.or.cz/fbpad.git/blob_plain/HEAD:/README - Seems to have some kind of integrated termux bullshit.

https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/kmscon/ - Looks alright, but I'm skeptical of any software produced by freedesktop. Looks like the idea of it is to be more of an expansion to the native terminal, than a replacement if that means anything.

https://code.google.com/archive/p/fbterm/ - I've heard of this one often. Looks like it has more of that multiplexing stuff.

inb4 Unix hating LISP fag


UNIX terminals suck at everything. They suck at interfaces so you need ncurses, they suck at graphics so you need X11 and X11 virtual terminals to emulate your virtual terminal, they suck at usability and scripting so you need Perl and Emacs, and they suck at being a terminal so you need an IBM 3270.

Wake up weenies, we live in a society where UNIX sucks and is no longer relevant. It's time to move on to a real computer with a real operating system written by real programmers in a real programming language that doesn't suck. I can't do it alone but through my wisdom and experience you can free yourselves from UNIX brain damage and create the operating system the world needs right now.

Take >>1049490 , for example. This young sage was fed up with UNIX's brain dead metacharacter bullshit and invented an entirely new console syntax that forever eliminates all UNIX's console string errors. I have taken the liberty of quoting him for your edification:

Here's an idea that a 5 year old would have thought of if he didn't get converted to UNIX religion at birth:
given some non-UNIX OS, the console has some command typed in it, like:

[get video] [ ]

the GUI puts boxes around shit to mark two different strings. yes strings can have spaces in this system, and we don't need to fuck with quotes
you click on the second box
it goes into edit mode
you hit ctrl+v to paste a link you copied from the web browser
you hit enter
it exits edit mode
also, since this is a non-gay shell and non-gay OS, you can't put $ or some stupid metacharacter in the string and fuck up your console. no matter what is in the string, it's just a string

See that? That's exactly the kind of genius I set out to inspire on this board and with the moderation's help I and my proteges are well on my way to achieving what no one has ever done since the 1980s: creating an operating system that doesn't suck.

is that ther, with switch or handle X window manager for X. It's not

You really want direct frame buffer access. Terminals are meant for spraying text onto a screen. If you want to be my hero, as an experiment you should port Firefox to direct frame buffer. It used to work in the framebuffer eons ago.


Alphabet Inc’s Google said on Thursday it was dissolving a council it had formed a week earlier to consider ethical issues around artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies.

The Vox report said Google employees had signed a petition calling for the removal of one of the members over comments about transsexual people, and added that the inclusion of a drone company executive had raised debate over use of Google’s AI for military applications.

I see we're talking about two different things. I was mentioning how the researchers' personal biases influence their works at every turn, not the methodological biases independent from the researchers' will.


Google had a board that was thinking about whether it's moral for google to write drone AI and NWO surveillance shit.

They were then shut down because allegedly one of them once said something about gays, or some gays.

That was a clearly coordinated deep state action that should be discussed.

The shills here who are trying to derail this into some /pol/-type kiddie discussion about niggers can go fuck themselves.



>repeating what the OP says

Are you retarded?



The technical issue is not solvable due to the blackbox nature of machine learning.

And the ethical solution is to simply limit the agency of inherently untrustworthy AI.

Guess why large tech companies and thoughtless scientists might have a problem with that.



Google employee: AI, how to stop all the problems on earth?

AI: Terminate all jews

Finance department: Shut it down.

But once I do get this work and get a full understanding of how this project works I'm planning on making a local mesh network using this project Running on top of CJDNS And I am going to create document explaining on how to connect to the network Which will include the following

> A brief description on how to connect to the network

> A list of software you need

> Couple screenshots and a dash of autistin



>KadNode intercepts .p2p domain queries on the systems level and resolve them using a decentralized DHT network. TLS authentication can be used to make sure the correct IP address was found. If successful, the IP address is passed to the application making the request.

sounds like insecure bullshit. but why would i have assumed anything else when someone calls their system "DNS"


It's called a petname system. The proper way to do it would be for the web browser to display .onion domains with the name you chose. But this will never be implemented in today's bloated browser without 500 vulns over the next 10 years.



it would suck. they would probably make it centralized like its on i2p so they can censor things they dont like.



Yeah, but if anybody can make a "petname" list then as soon as someone censors one someone else will make a new list you can download with the links that the other list censored.

What will YOU do when the Chinese Social Score comes to your nation?

Don't think for one minute that it won't. Generation Z has been raised to rate everything, from the products they buy, to the sellers they buy from, the restaurants they visit, their teachers, and even the doctors they visit. They rate their uber driver and the uber driver rates them. You have a large generation very used to the concept of rating.

The social media phenomenon has inculcated a narcissistic driven behavioural reinforcement system, by which people are nudged into group pleasing actions in return for high scores. Whether the motivation is purely rooted in vanity, or for monetary award corresponding to subscriber counts, it becomes clear that people are intimately vested in a gamification existence.

This combination of ratings and points is the underbelly for a "Social Score" system that is actually being realized in China today. Fail a test, litter on the street, say something 'politically incorrect', or perhaps staying out too late would result in demerits. Naturally, governments will issue rewards to nudge people into 'correct' behaviour. Those with low scores will be restricted from many services ranging from communications to travel; perhaps dissidents won't even have any freedom of movement! I'm sure you can imagine how such a scheme could also be tied into Universal Income.

(((They))) have primed the younger generation to accept this system, and you're kidding yourself if you think it will be met with but a handful of resistors. The question is then, how do we prevent this dystopian nightmare from emerging before it is too late?

It's healthy to escape the hugbox echo chambers but goddamn both sides have some fucking idiots.



I can think of disroot, riseup, antix, GNU and a few social media alternatives on the left. All I know of the right are a couple of image boards and personal sites with no JS.

I would love to be proven incorrect but it seems the left is far more focused on helping kill the botnet.

Size 177.96GB. I dare to say contains among the best books of their fields and are supposed not to repeat. It is a extremely well ordered collection by topic, and if you compare the size you soon see its value. Topics range from mathematics, physics, psychology, self improvement, survivalism, the best science fiction and fantasy literature, comics, magazines, and more. Magazines takes about 75 GB and there are many youtube videos, documentaries and conferences so you can exclude these if you want to. All books combined takes about 40 GB or so. But i really recommend downloading other stuff too since you can't really find it somewhere else easily. Did I mention is well sorted and contains only the best books?


It has only one seeder left right now. Used to be many more months ago. Would you kindly share this torrent on places like demonoid, piratebay and other imageboards too? That would be good.

Use Tor to download from libgen and SciHub.



There was libgen.pw that had both libgen and scihub with https but domain name gets changed to ambry.pw and now it doesnt seem to work anymore.



If I wanted to be happy I wouldn't be here.



wouldn't I2P be better for that?


Can we have a thread about anonymous (so no cjdns, no IPFS and no retroshare) distributed networks for the purpose of file sharing and shitposting?


Primarly made for and used as a proxy to the clearnet; the network is saturated by this. The client is written in C with some welcome security features like sandboxing.


Supposedly better than Tor, has a fork of the bittorrent protocol as filesharing. Sadly, the main implementation is a JavaPD implementation that includes everything possible.

Fortunately, there's i2pd, an actively developped C++ implementation and XD, a Go torrent application for it. It's still rough around the edges but progressing fast.


Don't know anything about it, except that there are some papers supporting it and the userbase is extremely tiny for now. Has filesharing builtin and an optional GTK+ GUI. It looks like its website got a facelift recently, maybe we'll see more development.

>lokinet (i2pd and monero successor)

Made by some guys including some i2pd devs because they're fed up with i2p and monero. Supposed to cure cancer and all.

For now, I think i2p is the way to go as far as anonymous filesharing goes. Any further opinions?

Common sense says yes.



>complaining about getting pers repost deleted

fuck off, spammer.



Not all Tor sites are indexed by Google, only some of them are known to Google.



does it affect onion sites (since almost all of them use http, since https would be redundant)?



A network wide correlation attack, what you're talking about, has simply never been done before although it may be possible.

Hey /tech/, yes Im "from" 4chan and so are 95% of you fucks. Anyways, I'm curious about what you peoples think about privacy and security on mobile networks. I can do what is possible on my end and Im def interested in the librem5 when it comes out, but its seems like no matter what you are forced into a illusion of choice for mobile internet. every 3 months or so a scandal comes out that your mobile provider has sold your data for example:




etc ad nausem.

There is a lot you can do, but nothing beats not owning a phone.

Famously snowden demonstrated how to "secure a phone". He starts with the presumption, that it is compromised. (Which on the level of Intelligence agencies is the case anyway) and removes and entry points of information they can collect, up to a point where he can set boundaries.

Cameras, physically removed, microphone, physically removed. He carries a micro-usb plugin microphone for phone calls.

Radios inside? Well, here you hit a brick wall. Ultimately you can't hide if you are truly tracked by someone. So what have you achieved?

A zone of privacy, that extends o sightline. He can be geographically tracked, but his phone does not allow you to get information of something happening in close proximity. (Eg. Voice recordings)

That is how you deal with it. Set a boundry you wish to enforce and work towards it. Can you go invisible? Not in everyday life. But you can limit what information you bleed, at least in a 10 Meter radius.

There's this clearnet imageboard hosting CP, won't link because that's illlegal and don't want thread deleted.

By now the authorities should be aware of it (it's been up for more than a month I think)

So my question is, how come it has not been shut down?

Don't the authorities have the power to do that?

I am tired of attempting to find work. I have decided to become a small-buisness owner and make my own computer repair store. I wish to run this out of my own home.

I plan to make a website tomorrow. However, I am looking for some advice on this.

What is a good price schedule for computer repair? Would having customers mail their computers to me at their own cost be a deturrent? I live in a gated community and don't think I could have people physically enter my property (let alone safely). How would you personally start this business?

I'll come up with more questions eventually, but this is all I have at the moment.

You want an IT career or to be a business owner?

If it's the first then the path to take is live near a city at the outskirts, get some basic ass certs like an MCSA set with an ITIL foundation, apply for low tier work like service desk or desktop support and then pay attention in the company. Learn everything about everything you see outside of the lame grunt work whilst getting to know people.

Most large organization (in the UK where I am at least) will have a standard ITIL aligned rollout where the operations area will consist of a the following teams:

networking team,

dba team,

Wintel and Unix for server and virtualisation work,

cct area if the business has a call centre for IVR dev,

telecoms team to hand toys out to execs and maintain their network structures,

you'll find a security team full of cunts with blue sky thinking and wankers galore,

ITIL services like change, release and transition management,

project teams full of dumb middle aged women with prince 2's and boring old bastards.

Your job will be to survive the low end work for a year sitting amongst computer illiterate retards deciding the second line promotion you'll work towards, since you're a nolife on 8chan you'll be managing the next team you move into within another year or be the lead. After the third year in your third promotion you'll begrudge contractors that make 4x your salary whilst you've now become better than their average staff level and will either move into contracting or start preparing for head of services/CIO/CTO.

Personally I'd recommend going for a dba team as it's a quick path to some living money and a lot of the other jobs will be made obsolete by cloud platform technologies and robotic process automation (autohotkey meets basic ai).

Adding to this, don't be a coder.

Testing areas and dev are absolute code diapers which are usually relegated to a separate building full of pajeet contractors that squat on the toilet and stink of curry+shit.



>a separate building full of pajeet contractors that squat on the toilet and stink of curry+shit

what a nightmare. must fire them and send them back to their country.



So quit seeing 11 jobs in 4 years as a "feat in the modern world", and quiting after two days because "its degrading", and earn literally one full time month salary to buy yourself an entry level used vehicle. And start doing something with your life.

Otherwise might as well listen to this poster: >>1044514

There are people who like to experience what was there in the past. In this age it's more like a toy rather than something that people would use for their daily computing.



You could execute code this way though. Like the well-known winrar security flaws.

It's not even too different from a buffer overflow actually. You have that void zone somewhere in a file and half of the programs reading the file don't have behaviour defined for when they encounter it.



if it contains something that is targeting a vulnerability in the image library then it will work in the image viewer

If I'm going to download a higher quality file that can be listened to as-is, of course I'm going to use that. Storage is dirt cheap now. I can't tell a difference between FLAC and 320 kb/s mp3, but at least a FLAC is less likely to be poor quality than an mp3. If I convert it myself I at least know it's a good quality mp3.


I've never seen VBR mp3s anywhere. I always see CBR, and who knows what bitrate they compressed to until after you've downloaded the file. More places are offering 320 at least, but lower bitrates are still more common unless you're actively searching for higher quality files.



many old albums are only 128-192kbps and collector kikes want way too much money for the cds.
