>using windows

Okay, let me also take a shot at deciphering your retardation.

Is what you're really asking is how to make it so that when you hit enter, capslock disabled?

If not you are a fucking brainlet and need to buy a real keyboard.

QTDDTOT is where you should start, but do bear in mind that if you need to actually explain precisely what you want to accomplish there, not give some internal core dump of your greymatter.



1) Read the fucking stickies.

2) Read the fucking documentation. I use AHK for the little Winshit I still do for work, it's piss-easy to use.

3) If you're still a retarded faggot who can't use it, just buy a keyboard with programmable macros.



maybe it would be for some dialog where enter would send or do something else instead


Just type it out yourself you neet

Hello tech friends

Disclaimer: I am not a thief, I am an idiot that bought a phone on craigslist

I bought a phone off of craigslist that wasn't paid off and is tied to a sprint account that is past due. The IMEI will eventually be blacklisted, although it is not at the moment.

I paid $200 bucks for this Samsung galaxy s8 active and would really hate for this thing to be a damn paperweight.

Can anyone lead me in the right direction?

So far I'm aware of a few options

octobox plus, z3x box, swapping out the board with a new one, paying for a third party service (which I am willing to do if reputable and offers a guarantee) or lastly I was told that if I root the phone there's a tool that's called something along the lines of IMEI_decode and to flash the bin file it spits out into the boot rom.

Please help lol

They stole it from the poor phone companies who are just trying to feed ther families. Truly despicable.





Still stolen. Contract subsidized phones/installment plans are basically rent-to-own, but the phone companies won't repo some phone you probably had stashed in your asscrack. Anyone can pay off an account as long as they know a phone number on it, but if they cannot verify the account, they have to play 20 questions.

"Will $1000 pay off this account and let the phone be unlocked?"

"Will $200 pay off this account and let the phone be unlocked?"

And so on.

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.

Doesn't this just give moderation power to state actors or other well organised SJW groups?

>board syncing

I could be reading a thread and be reading messages that respond to a message I have yet to sync? In isolated nodes, or node clusters that are just starting to coalesce into their own little echo chamber, this would be a bit fragile (but maybe sync issues for these small clusters is preferable).

dude... maybe I even agree with you but this shit is top tier cringe. you don't have to fill your zine with autistic memes to make it seem like you're just a cool dude who doesn't give any fucks. I read some of the first one and it's honestly not that interesting to me, we've all already heard the talking points. I especially don't need a transcript of plebbit threads in essay format.



This. I mean, its self aware, and ironic, the first entry in the first zine being "congratulations" , but there is no original content, and really little content at all.

The internet has really destroy the need for magazines, by the web is essentially a magazine anyway. Why would I download a magazine full of famous shitposts, when I could read those shitposts in my browser for free if I wanted to? I kind get that your currating them, but your curating famous stuff like Navy Seal CopyPasta, and various wikis already do that.

I actually don't really care for this kind of non-sense, they aren't funny, and take a lot of time to read for virtually no content, so I guess I am not your target audience anyway.


If you where truly Intelligent you wouldn't be using copy pastas You would actually come up with your own content That's good Unlike my original content which ends up being shit anyways because im a shit brained monkey That thinks hes a uber haxor Because he uses steghide and knows how to self host shit

This is absolutely true. Doing tech work on prospect is not recommended. Most people will make up some reason they are not going to pay you.

Right on, so completely reverse engineering a SDR dongle to theoretically { read as maybe } operate and transceive data on broader spectrums.

I do not see much material out there on modifying SDR hardware at that level. From my experience, I can imagine it'll take some reverse engineering over serial or finding the board specific solder pads to directly modify the firmware. It is nothing small or easy.

Now using DVI, that is an idea... I wonder what that interface would look like... and whether more complicated functions(I.e. decryption/packet analysis; using the capabilities of a GPU and something like hashcat).

I was wondering what are the average /tech/no's opinion on this whole mess of a legislation. From what I've come to understand, platforms such as this very one seems to be mostly exempt (not only because they're based in America with no European counterpart, but because they fail to reach the user and revenue quotas of the bigger players), as well as most attempts at parody and pastiche seem to be somewhat protected.

That being said, we all know how much of a shitter every filtering service really is, Youtube's Content ID check being at the forefront of fucking with even uttered words.



Also, what are burgers' take on this?

>please don't just say "lmao doesn't affect me hoss"


You lads are fucked. Hoard those memes while you can.


>Providers of services such

as not-for profit online encyclopedias

>shall not be considered online content sharing

service providers within the meaning of this Directive.

There's your loophole. Make a phony wiki that catalogues the images uploaded by boards or threads and you don't have to change anything about the de facto operation of your imageboard.



My honest opinion about article 13 is it's badd idea is going to destroy the Internet well for the uk any ways That is unless America also has to apply to this rule


I have been trying to work on my own memes just in case I mean they're all garbage but it's better than having no memes at all I'm trying to use pain and trying to make it all original That way there's absolutely no way they could Sue me for copyright I'm even arming myself with steganography to So I can hide the copy righted memes within my own memes



>they fail to reach the user and revenue quotas of the bigger players

Reda's writing on the subject implies that platforms older than three years have no user or revenue quotas.

What amazes me about all this is how fucking long we managed to get away with just DMCA. This is basically a policy where you can upload whatever copyrighted shit you want, anyone can download, and when you get found out there are zero consequences. It's glorious. Now the policy is going to be: Somebody has to liable for every copyrighted thing that gets uploaded. Either the website owner, or the user, or the filter operator. The latter won't necessarily get in trouble, but they are expected to correct the problem.

I fully expect, in 20 years or so, either copyright bas been abolished or policies like this one are the norm. DMCA is completely against the spirit of copyright, the powers that be can't possibly let it stand as it is.

Any suggestions?

I'm open to new options, but your argument is null and void if you can't provide any.

Besides, Sager hardware is harder to order outside North America. That's where System76 excels at:




If you want the opinion of anons, a site that I know is run by them is https://laptopscribes.com/laptops, assuming part of the reason you want S76 is because they're fairly beefy laptops to boot.



That's a nice site, but I'm mainly looking for something that's not made by a mainstream company, and something that's pretty powerful for what it is, and it still manages to give you a fairly decent payment option. It's not so much as privacy concerns as it is all of the bloatware they try to push on their laptops next to Windows.

And an answer to your last bit:


I have plenty of reasons to own a big and beefy laptop, but mainly because I want a long-term portable solution that's not prone to breaking every 2 years for once.



I think System76 is actually nicer than Zareason. They make computers high end enough to meet your needs. They computers are not any more or less serviceable than a standard laptop. (Excluding BS like apple laptops, or MS Surface, or ultrabooks)


Pop os is based on ubuntu And my honest opinion about that is you ubuntu is OK if you're beginner and it comes with a lot of support However I don't care for the Amazon spyware that comes with it

Stenography might actually work. how many people are still around that can read shorthand? Court stenographers use that special typrewriter. If you started writing shit down in gregg shorthand, who would be able to read it?

So I did some googling, and apparently, cops know shorthand. Kinda invalidates my whole idea. The only people that still know shorthand would be the last people you want to read it in this case.



Any sort of "sekrit code" is going to be about as effective as Pig Latin in the face of a determined adversary.



If you're looking to go cheap, libreboot is a good bet. I've had people vouch for the Talos computers, if you have the money, but those are clearly expensive. I don't know of any non-botnet, non-x86 laptops either, so you're out of luck if you're looking for something decently sized and powerful.


Are there any good tor remailers or a list of them to line up a good mail circuit? I've damned tried to look for one. Can someone help a fellow anon out? What should I search for?



Open source hardware is nowhere near fruition. Maybe buy the 4000$ riscv pc that can't even do anything right now or get build the lowest spec Talos II for around ~2500$ while using your own hardware for ram and hdd and also case.

Novena laptop is not entirely open source but more of like "open for hackers" thing especially if you're a fan of hacking into jtag and unlocking system's potentials (tl;dr reverse engineer -enthusiast's wetdream). You can do it yourself as long as you have the parts available.

>Snowden leaks its that encryption cannot be cracked without cooperation of the person who has the keys.

That's why you should escrow your keys so they'll just ask some /x/ tier person to find where you hide your phrases.

That doesn't make sense, even AES something will be crackable and it's just a matter of time. Wonder why we're not using the older ciphers? They got owned, shhh. Once this one we are using is owned we'll raise the bar for standards over again and market it as "takes billion years and entire universe's electrons to crack" when there's only some clever trick that makes use of a bug or some cool math algorithms that every hobbyists are doing right now like optimizing prime numbers and sudoku/rubiks every year.

Just installed the new 'dipshit 2019' update! More ads and spyware have been installed, and Bill personally made it harder to modify the desktop environment. Toolbar colors are now locked into a pool of 16 choices, and you can no longer change its position. I really enjoy the sterile, flat colors, and microsofts pledge to stick to the interface paradigm that they have since 95. Using Linux, there is just too much choice in interface control. Thank god that has been taken away from me, it makes my brain hurt.

I was dumb enough to remove the ads from the windows(tm) smarttile(r), so they have been put back! Can't wait to look at the cool candy crush logos while I'm trying to search for an item off the super menu, which for some reason takes several minutes. I actually remember the function being faster on xp. Maybe it's bill's little way of saying "stare at the ads you fucking consumer pig. look at the groove(tm) music ad, that looks good doesn't it? Did you know that artists can make .001% of every sale?"

If you do want to disable the tiles adware completely, don't worry! It's as easy as : gpedit.msc => Local Computer Policy => User Configuration => Administrative Templates => Start Menu and Taskbar => Notifications. => navigate to sidebar => turn off tile notifications

Then, simply:

Go to regedit => HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications => click on NoTileNotifications => modify dword => change base hex value to 1

(not kidding, you actually have to go through all of this. I could not make up something this user-unfriendly)

Do you guys have the update yet? If not, Microsoft will install it for you the next time you leave your pc for half an hour. Remember to save your work!

What's the point of LTSC 2019 if Server 2019 is way better as a daily driver?



Agreed. I've tried Server 2019 and was surprised on how much closer it is to desktop Windows than previous Windows Server versions (2012R2 and older, I never tried 2016). The pajeets didn't even bother creating a different wallpaper / desktop color theme for Windows Server anymore. From a desktop users standpoint it's just Windows 10 with all the bullshit cut off and it actually performs better.



>Plus you can't scroll inactive windows

I could do this with the Logitech driver on Windows 95 which had no native scroll support at all. But you need to install 3rd party software that runs at a key/click logger level to get this in Windows 8.1 and earlier.

It's disgusting using other peoples PCs without scroll focus following mouse and middle click paste.

Just install tor.

The DNS server you're connecting to, whether its traffic is secured by DNSCrypt or not, knows that hostnames you're looking up.

>surely because they have to translated it to IP, right?


As anon said, you should be usng Tor for most everything, though.
