The future will hold a heavily restricted internet with ISPs selling you access to fb/yt/twitter/wiki/amazon etc and other sites being inaccessible because the goverment declared them "hostile".

There is no way to stop it so we need a proper alternative internet before its too late.

The government doesn't need to do anything here. All you need is for the industry to continue to consolidate until corporate control of what you see and access is absolute. Google is already massively impacting web traffic by tweaking their algorithms to direct people away from websites they don't like.

Yep. Censorship is good, but it's even better if you don't need to censor because all information people seek and find is already kosher. A few autists can get around it, but getting 99.999% of people is more than good enough.



Badthink sites will be banned regardless of net neutrality. Big Tech was using their power to ban anyone they deem ungood before net neutrality was repealed -- see the mass bannings on Twitter and the Daily Stormer. Like every other rule regarding freedom of speech, net neutrality was never going to be applied evenly. It would have been used to protect leftists, while any doubleplusungood h'white men would be mysteriously exempted from its protection.

Net neutrality being repealed is a good thing. It exposes leddit/leftist/normalfaggots to censorship, while not changing the situation for non-leftists one iota.

I'm going to enjoy seeing leftist faggots bitch and moan as their favorite sites are restricted. Let's see how they like the censorship they've been foisting on everyone else for so long.



>mfw it makes sense

Seriously do you even know who passed net neutrality? It was fucking Obama! It's SJW trash.

what do you lads think of YaCy? is it in a good state to be a daily search engine? i honestly do not think so




Posteo is the best I've found for 11 euro a year. I need to look into lavabit.



It'll never be viable. Even there were a sufficiently large and sufficiently active network, imagine trying to teach a normie how to add yacy as a service on startup. Especially on an operating system that's not Unix like.

Alright, just checked what the situation looks like in Germoney and found that one can get a dark fiber to the nearest metropolitan area (which should be enough to reach an IXP) for around 1000€ per month. So peering is indeed much more expensive than getting access to fiber.



I'm assuming most anons don't live within 20km of Frankfurt. 1000€ for what distance?


File: 533d3bf0374f3cc⋯.png (325.99 KB, 642x750, 107:125, Gasline.png)


It just says 700-1400€ to the nearest metro area. No specific distance. Would have to contact them for details.

But at least here in Europe that should be enough considering that there are IXPs everywhere within a couple dozen kilometers. Obviously not "tier 1" like DE-CIX Frankfurt, AMSIX or LINX, but smaller ones like DE-CIX Hamburg/Dusseldorf/Munich, BCIX or ECIX.

But even a line to Frankfurt shouldn't be anywhere as expensive as what peering costs given how relatively central Frankfurt is located, how tiny Germany is, and how dense WANs running over transmission lines and pipelines are; I'd say 400km or so max from any location.

Probably a whole lot different compared in North America though where you'd have to run 100s of miles over lines owned by a dozen companies.



Yes, let me just block traffic for no reason so I can make a completely unrelated "statement". How progressive!



But then you'll get complete jackasses who think their euro piece of shit makes him a pro driver speeding down downtown streets like this guy.

THERE'S YOUR FUCKING PROBLEM. Deluge is optimized for running on *nix.



>python program using an horrible boostruosity like libtorrent-rasterbar

>optimized for anything



That's problem with libtorrent not rtorrent [1]. Apprently someone forgot major distros started rolling c++ compilers with C++11 features.

[1] https://github.com/rakshasa/libtorrent/issues/158

[2] https://github.com/rakshasa/libtorrent/commit/462f358f8fb3f842c2086b96d396c7d27736add9



That's why you set -std= in your makefiles. Fucking retards.



This is exactly what I've been looking for. I've never been very sucessfull when trying to set up rutorrent; instead running it in a dtach session works, but I'd rather have a server-client model alà mpd.

A shame there haven't been any activity for six years, and the forks seem to be mostly minor code/documentation improvements.

This BSD fork claims non-free binary downloads happen after installing OpenBSD.

Has anyone tried this yet?

431 posts and 71 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


So what's the situation on Free firmware replacements for common hardware? I know that (for example) while Intel and ATI GPUs have good quality free drivers, there are blobs needed for at least some of their GPUs.

What even needs firmware these days? Does practically every device like your SATA controller and ethernet card need to load some binary blob, or is it limited to stuff like wireless cards and GPUs?



Mhh, I like that openBSD is so much focused on security but it's true that ZFS support is lacking.


Ok, so it's not really the magic bullet that I imagined because it doesn't do anything to replace the firmware that it removes, so kinda pointless fork but we'll see what they do in the future.


I was wondering the same thing.

Even hard drives have firmware, ideally you'd be able to control every firmware in every chip.

A good solution would be to have... a stateless computer. Which means no firmware-carrying flash memory chips, all state to be kept on an external trusted device, USB or SD! https://blog.invisiblethings.org/2015/12/23/state_harmful.html



>Improving the quality of all code, proprietary or not is in the best interests of everyone.

No, in the case of BSD, it's only in the interest of big corporations.


>Is there any better alternative?

Yes, there is : Linux.



>Great, they should be added to the FSF's RYF OS page.

Not gonna happen since Richard Stallman has a personal vendetta against the BSD license, so even if LibertyBSD somehow does everything right, it'll come down to personal philosophy. Could try requesting https://h-node.org for special consideration. Frankly, I always thought Debian had the best approach to binary blobs - take 'em away by default, but respect the user enough to give them the option to individually re-enable any needed ones.

>but wait WebKit is written in C++

GNU/webkitgtk+ is C

Qtwebengine is C++

I was thinking the same thing though playing around with it. Build it with webkit first and then replace pieces if I feel like trying.



I think that's Stylo, Servo is supposed to be the full engine.

>goto hell;


First, I would build a Lisp machine on an FPGA which would increase productivity by at least 1,000,000 times. This should make it easy enough for one person to write a full Webkit replacement in a relatively short amount of time.

How do you organize your source in larger projects? Is there an industry standard specifically for how to handle code not written by yourself?

Do you just put it into a folder called "external" or what?



If you have a language with a package manager you user that. If you are using a language like C or C++ you have the user install dependencies on their system and the required header files will be placed in the system directories. For everything else you just create a folder called external and place your libraries there.



That's one of the nice things about javascript and node/npm. npm lets me just drop a git repo into my dependencies and I can install shit that way, instead of having to go through publishing my code in the registry.



Yea, external pretty much. Plus header/source separated in folders. Possibly another one for template specifications and inline functions if there's a lot of them.

Assuming it's a common 1TB, and assuming I have peripherals like keyboard, mice, headphones, etc.

-small, simple, and stable OS with up to date packages and software to run whatever I'm storing

-vidya, probably from older generations like gameboy and NES because the files sizes are so tiny you could have tens of thousands in a few gigs

-couple hundred thousand books (mostly in plain text format except for documents that need pictures), everything from science to novels to instruction manuals and survival guides

-infographs about ammo size or first aid or whatever I might need

-music, probably enough to take up 100GB or so at moderate bitrate that will give enough variation for all kinds of moods I'd be in

-depending on how much space I have like ~10gb of porn in pictures

-leave like ~50 gigs freespace for documentation: journal, pictures, video diary, etc.

If the HDD is smaller like 500gigs or less I'd probably most free space and keep a pure text journal, omit some music and porn



>What's on you HDD, anon?

A lot of music and music software, some classic animus, too.

A collection of political videos that show crimes against the west so the kikes and their golems can't rest while our global communications network got fucked after finally getting one to tell each other how kiked the kikes are.

And a few games.

Oh, and since I'm running Slackware, pretty much all programming languages, no matter if compiled or interpreted.


Probably none of you guys would be thinking of games or anime at that point. Or even sitting at the computer at all since I assume the supermarkets and such went down also.

Probably, knowledge about growing plants, identifying wild plants and such would be useful.

I miss Presto Opera...


Non Webextension crap? Many of them.

All FF 27.9 and below work. Most other versions up to at least FF52 should work. Just remember to use the Moon Tester addon which allows you to force any addon on Pale Moon to test if it really works out (ignoring the FF version #). Or you could manually edit the .xpi but its obviously easier this way.


They have their own add-on site, which is slowly growing due to the FF exiles and a xpi archive for when AMO goes down. Many of the addons in said archive will probably end up in their addons site (at least those with permissive licenses).



Some of them are compatible and some need to be substituted for alternatives or PM-specific ones. Enjoy Swedish furry browser, I started using it years ago and don't really see why I should stop.


If moral addon policing was not repulsive enough, Pale Moon is now threatening ports with legal action. Starting an issue with "you will..."? Top grade asshole material there.

Isn't human interaction intrinsically non-free? No one really knows for certain how the mind functions, how it processes data, and it most certainly can't be easily changed to better suit tasks. While it is public knowledge that the mind is public domain and not licensed via the GPL 3.0, I feel it is necessary to clear up the misconception of personal freedom people seem to think they gain while talking with people offline.

When engaging in a discussion, casual or not, neither you or the person you are talking to are consenting to the collection of data in the form of verbal communication and have no control over how it is being used/abused by the mind as time goes on.

Anyone here know of cryptocurrencies that have genuinely interesting and developed technology behind them?

Very few interest me. Monero seems like it has advanced privacy enhancing features that make it a no brainer if someone wants to anonymously exchange value between each other. The Brave browser also adds novel features to the browsing experience that aren't seen in mainstream browsers unless you add extensions to certain ones.

Let me know if there's any legitimate technology out there that I'm missing. Most projects with a "product" suck a fat cock and don't have a working product to speak of.

>Master nodes

>>>>>>>stabilize the value

No, look at Dash. All masternodes do is centralise control and make a Sybil easier, as well as provide an easy access for malicious actors

You know nothing about what makes a cryptocurrency private, do you? Sell your PIVX and get out of crypto, if you can't do basic research it's not for you



>It's a fucking mixer, dumbass. There's no privacy involved, same shit as dash

Nope. The mixer is what they had before.

>Is not safe for a mainline network. Even Vitalik knows this.

Explain and why are you being derogatory to the one who founded the second largest market cap crypto?


What is zerocoin? lets not get emotional now... <so you want private ledger... like J.P. Morgan private? The whole point of crypto is having a encrypted decentralized public ledger, that is the base technology.

>No, look at Dash. All masternodes do is centralise control and make a Sybil easier, as well as provide an easy access for malicious actors

Easy access... yeah, a large investment is 'easy access'

<The rich list also shows that the coins are not that centralized in single addresses- just cheer-leading though because you can have multiple addresses, so yeah the creators can own most of it, same goes for fucking bitcoin.



It was probably an inside job. It would not be the first time one of the "nem team" ripped off an exchange.

Last year a character by the moniker of kodytycoon ripped off polianex for 2500000 nem. He even admitted it on bitcointalk



>why are you being derogatory

Learn to read, dumbass.

>The whole point of crypto is having a encrypted decentralized public ledger, that is the base technology.

Besides being wrong (Satoshi's vision is a cryptographically secure p2p payment system)...

>Public ledger

A system with a PUBLIC LEDGER is NOT PRIVATE. I am using caps to make my point, because you seem to be unable to read.

>Easy access... yeah, a large investment is 'easy access'

A malicious actor with a large amount of money can literally buy up as many masternodes as they like. Hackers, too. Did you not see the missing NEM over the past week?
