So the trailer for this new film about the deep, dark web came out a few months ago (its recently become more popular), and it looks cringey as fuck to anyone who knows even slightly what they're talking about when it comes to the dark web, or computers, or even just common sense.

Everything in this trailer is stupid.

From the film's tor browser clone "river browser" having to span itself over fourteen different nodes to access its sector of the dark web (on the river network I guess. You know, "tor" actually stands for something, it means something. What the fuck does "river" mean?), to how the villain whose supposedly this genius hacker person carelessly leaves his laptop in a coffee shop (and gave his user account the most suspicious username ever), to how this moron who works in a coffee shop somehow managed to get into this guys account either because it wasn't password protected (some hacking genius this guy is) or that it was so easy to crack that even this coffee shop moron could crack it, to why the fuck is this genius hacker person accessing the darkweb on his host operating system which is none the less a mainstream operating system that is likely to catch a virus, e.c.t.

So this all got me thinking about something which has been bothering me for quite a while now. Why do most people not know shit about the darkweb?

As far as Computer Science goes, it's relatively simple to understand.

But you always hear people, especially online, talking complete bullshit about it.

I see it in my school a lot where you have these stupid kids boasting about how bad-ass they are because they downloaded the tor browser (again, on their fucking host operating system. If they actually get the balls to browse the dark web properly their computer is going to break in like five seconds).

I actually showed one of the students in my school that I had downloaded the tor browser. He was terrified because he thinks that the browser itself is illegal and that just accessing the dark web is illegal.

It got to the point where he actually tried to bribe me to deletPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

His specific way of using Tor is compromised: public hidden sites are easy to bust just by listing the top N IPs by traffic and then seeing who correlates best with the timing of page refreshes. It's parallel construction, though not because of covering up eavesdropping but because statistical correlation doesn't meet a proper standard of evidence.



Did your prepubescent mind come up with that garble? Official documents say that Ross Ulbricht did not isolate his web server completely in Tor. FBI scanned internet for his captcha page which was served by third party in turn IIRC on http port and voila, this is how they got his server IP. What happened next is they contacted the local police in Iceland where data center is located and asked for IP addresses ever connected to that server. Turned out, dumb nigger used a fucking V P N service to connect to his own very secret darkweb server. Not Tor, a VPN service from some CIAnigger company. The rest of this case is pretty self-explanatory.






That's a lot of text that you typed just to say "LMAO I know how tor works, sekrit Klub amirite? XD"

The Terry that died was Terry Allen Davis, born in 1947. https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/Terry-Davis-obituary?pid=190092051

TempleOS Terry's real name is Terrence Andrew Davis, and he was born in 1969. He graduated from AguaFria High School, 1988. With this, there's no way he is 72 years old. He's not even 50.

The following is a post submitted to an Apple subreddit bragging that you can do the majority of your "computing" on an iPad/iPhone, now before I lose you immediately, take heed that this is actually a microcosm for the normie population at large. There is still some opposition, but an alarming number of these NPC's are leaving Mac/PC behind. If their demand for computers drops, the price for everyone increases. Here's some choice quotes, these are real beauties.


>95% of my computing work can be done on my iPad Pro. It’s just that annoying 5% that’s really frustrating. I’m studying Maths and Physics at university, and they require access to Matlab and RStudio.

>I am in a similar boat.

>I do IT support for small and medium enterprise. Prior to my iPad Pro I was using my 2011 MBP for everything. I would charge it over night, put it and my charger in my bag, and go place to place.

>In IT support you are generally using someone else's computer, that you are fixing. My iPad seems to always have a charge. >My MBP still has to come out sometimes, to format drives, target disk mode, console work etc. But basically my iPad Pro has become my main machine and my MBP has become a tool for some tasks.

>Even doing quotes and stuff for customers is great. Having two Safari windows side by side and simply dragging content between windows is pretty nifty.

>I’ve definitely come to the realization that after college there is really no need for a laptop

>If there was Xcode, Git and better desktop website support, I could ditch the Mac and switch to iPad.

>Unless you are buying an i9 MacBook Pro, you don’t need to worry about this. Also, it’s still a bit unclear what exactly is happening. Most computer users could probably get by with just a tablet. In that case, it’s more preference. Some people like super portable machines. Other people want a larger screen.

Conventional gasoline ICE vehicles, the refinery process used to manufacture fuel for them, and the externalities imposed by fossil fuels, cost vastly in excess of $10k more than a BEV. Since this cost is amortized over lifetime fuel purchases, its cost is less obvious to retards like you than the up-front sticker price of electric cells in a BEV.

For up-front prices to be even close to fair between gas and electric, subsidies would in fact have to increase far more.

RMS philosophy is just one interpretation of what free software is. You could open your source but not allow anyone to modify/resell it, open your source completely and allow anyone to close/resell it however they want (like the cuck you are, yes you are the AT&T's bitch you BSD cuck) or if you change your mind maybe go balls deep instead and use AGPL, the true communism license.



GPL users are cucks. BSD developers are cucks. Whos getting cucked is the difference.



GPL cucks can receive contributions back from the companies, albeit forcefully. BSD cucks on the other hand literally works

Normalizing Audio in Video Files

Is there any good free software that can easily replace the audio track of any video with a normalized version?

I need this because some videos I watch have really shitty audio editing that causes me to have to perch over the volume button to turn the volume up and down. Pisses me off.

13 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.



>ffmpeg -i input.mp3 -ac 1 output.mp3

this would assume the input is stereo and mix them into mono. Any out of phase audio would cancel out. The effect of doing this would reduce the volume considerably, and you would need to run a volume normalization filter after scanning the audio for the correct values to do so.

The prior suggestion >>962022 should solve the problem without such volume degradation. However, the most accurate solution is to choose a channel and map it as the mono channel.

>Choose a specific channel

> This example uses the pan audio filter to include only the right channel:

ffmpeg -i stereo.wav -af "pan=mono|c0=c1" mono.m4a

Would use the right channel for the resultant mono stream.

If you only want the left channel use c0=c0 instead.



obviously you could extend this to copy one channel to the other / swap them / etc for stereo.



>right click video

>select normalize audio from drop down menu

was it that hard?



The premise of my take on the problem, was that the audio was mono in a container marking it as stereo. I don't know what ffmpeg would, do but you are most certainly right that it is more precise to map the stereo track that has sound in it instead of leaving it up to ffmpeg what to do.

However in this case doing ffmpeg -i file.mp3 -ac 2 file2.mp3 would not make the file play in stereo, as it would still be one track with the mono sound and a blank one.

Some of those GOG games come with multiplayer DRM-walls. Age of Wonders 3 infamously has a DRM-wall on all multiplayer, including "LAN" and "PBEM". Everything must go through Triumph servers with a verified Triumph serial number, or else you get no multiplayer short of hotseat.



I misread Triumph as Trump



Originally the singleplayer was locked behind Triumph account registration bullshit too, but GOG forced them to open it up since they didn't want to process all those refunds. They left them with the multiplayer block though.

>Fucking TheTemple is the cause of a lot of fucking grief

No, it's a case of "kill the messenger". We wouldn't know Terry was dead if he didn't broadcast their private message to us. I've spoken with TheTemple in the past, he loved Terry just like many of us do. He and tsheiks both get a lot of undue hatred, despite having directly helped Terry in finding donators and making donations themselves.



So you think it's ok that perhaps the last message his mother ever sent to "Terry" was actually to this fucker who had been stalking his family, befriending them and posing as Terry?

>Isn't there a better way to implement a text input and output environment?

No? UNIX and their derivatives are primarily command-line driven, so it makes sense to do this, as it allows for a more modular approach to driver development and generally makes the interface and behavior more consistent. I rather like not having to worry if my software's running on a VGA framebuffer, SSH session, X-Term, or honest-to-god VT100.

Maybe I'm dumb, but I'm yet to see a more elegant solution.



a terminal emulator is literally more work to implement than setting up a VESA framebuffer

>apple will burn as soon as chinese laborers want rights

This won't matter unless the CCP falls out of power. It's not a matter of if they want rights, even if they get them the cheap labor will just shift over to some other group like China's vast network of political prisoners who are basically slaves or one of it's many African colonies who are basically slaves.


Facebook is likely going to die. Apple, Amazon, and Alphabet can easily diversify like Microsoft did



>apple will burn as soon as chinese laborers want rights

Apples main hardware is made in Taiwan so they already have more rights. If Apple really wanted to they could move assembly to somewhere else



> Amazon

> diversify

The problem with the graph is that it fallaciously abstracts a very diverse revenue stream into being one revenue stream. You wouldn't say that Walmart isn't diverse because "they sell stuff". They're arguably more diverse than, say, Barnes and Noble, or Hobby Lobby.
