ITT we talk about Japanese webdesign. Why everything they design look so elegant and cool tech? I feel like wearing my ki and sipping matcha and painting kanji when I look at them.

For example just look at this website.

It is a website of Shinjuku central street. It cycles between eigo, nihongo, chugokugo, and kangokugo. Brilliant. I just read it when it is eigo (that means English for those of you who do not know nihongo (Japanese)). It also has a perfect web 2.0 design and cool animations.

I can't parse what you're trying to say. Here's some possibilities I've come up with.

>I feel the need to conform to the subjective opinions of those around me, despite having different personal opinions and preferences

>I don't like that people voice their opinions

>I don't give people the benefit of the doubt and assume they're detractors, not advisory

Not sure if it's any of these or a combination, so I'll give a general response.

Form your own conclusions on a case by case basis.

Don't let the opinions of others control you, in any way. There's nothing wrong with people disagreeing with you, just because it happens doesn't mean you aren't allowed to speak on subjective topics. In addition, just because people are silent, doesn't mean there aren't others out there that share the opinion.

Regardless, you shouldn't seek external validation or feedback. Your thoughts and opinions should be based on your own perspective and preferences, not the appeal factor of the place you're currently speaking at.

Most importantly, this is a global communication channel. Society is living together despite our differences, it's absurd to think that the entire globe is going to agree on any topic. There's nothing wrong with someone expressing their own opinion in response, or disagreement with yours. Don't take it personally.

In relation to your specific example, you have to remember that different patterns suite different people. I recommend tools I don't personally use, to certain OTHER people, because it's better for THEM. A simple example is something like git on the cli vs some git gui frontend. It's highly subjective and particular.

Since there's a few threads discussing alternative chat protocols, I figured we should attempt to centralize it in order to have a decent discuss the strengths and weaknesses in our preferred clients/servers.

As far as I know this is a fairly complete list of the currently most common chat protocols and applications used by privacy conscious users. If something was forgotten feel free to add.

>IRC

The long standing champion of ez internet based chats. Not very secure by default.

>XMPP

Currently the most well known/tested privacy conscious chat protocol. Used by many different users around the world for secure communications

>Signal

Phone based e2e encrypted messaging client and protocol. Trusted by many, has created the new and interesting encryption method known as double-ratchet.

>Telegram

Similar to signal but owned by a Russian, one of the largest private messaging platforms in russia

>Whatsapp

No.

>Matrix

A fairly new decentralized chat protocol that supports e2e encryption. The main matrix.org server has a CoC as well as pretty poor privacy protections from the server admins. Hosting your own matrix server appears to be safe and is indeed end to end encrypted. More testing needs to be done as the devs don't seem as paranoid about privacy as they should.

>Tox

A P2P and E2E encrypted chat network based on a DHT, pretty decent but comes with the usual problems of P2P software. Supports groups, voice, and video although the video still sucks.

>inb4 great we have another thread about chat services.

>zstd is the best overall

zstd is the mediocre in all dimensions. It will sometimes be best depending on the situation. In particular, suppose you want to send data over a wire as fast as possible. The time taken is d + s/b + c (d:decompression time, c:compression time, b: byterate, s:compressed size). Graphing that:

b(B/s)	1.00E+03	1.00E+06	1.00E+09
paq 1.48E+04 8.76E+03 8.75E+03

gz 1.75E+04 2.09E+01 3.50E+00
none 3.54E+04 3.54E+01 3.54E-02

at 1k/s 7z -m0=ppmd is best. at 1M/s bz wins. at 1G/s, no compression is best, second best is gz. On this graph, I see nowhere that zstd is best, but lets add another one assuming that compression happens once, but downloading +decompression happens n times (ie d+(s/b+c)*n) (also standardize on b=1e6):

n	1.00E+01	1.00E+03	1.00E+05	1.00E+07
paq 8.81E+03 1.48E+04 6.15E+05 6.06E+07

For ten downloads bz is best. at 1000 they're all identical lol, but 7z2 is best. at 100,000 paq starts throwing it's weight, the rest are all identical again, same for 10,000,000. The lesson basically is that compression time mattePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

China Yes!

Highlights

• Haploid ESCs display PGC-like methylation profiles following in vitro cultivation

• Parthenogenetic and androgenetic haploid ESCs show different demethylation dynamics

• phESCs carrying 3 deleted imprinted regions support normal growth of bimaternal mice

• ahESCs carrying 7 deleted imprinted regions produce live full-term bipaternal mice

Summary

Unisexual reproduction is widespread among lower vertebrates, but not in mammals. Deletion of the H19 imprinted region in immature oocytes produced bimaternal mice with defective growth; however, bipaternal reproduction has not been previously achieved in mammals. We found that cultured parthenogenetic and androgenetic haploid embryonic stem cells (haESCs) display DNA hypomethylation resembling that of primordial germ cells. Through MII oocyte injection or sperm coinjection with hypomethylated haploid ESCs carrying specific imprinted region deletions, we obtained live bimaternal and bipaternal mice. Deletion of 3 imprinted regions in parthenogenetic haploid ESCs restored normal growth of fertile bimaternal mice, whereas deletion of 7 imprinted regions in androgenetic haploid ESCs enabled production of live bipaternal mice that died shortly after birth. Phenotypic analyses of organ and body size of these mice support the genetic conflict theory of genomic imprinting. Taken together, our results highlight the factors necessary for crossing same-sex reproduction barriers in mammals.

Are you denying the inferiority of other species? What logic compels you that any human species besides whites should be allowed to live? Kikes and niggers are objectively inferior and a detriment to progress on a scale larger than you, me, or the human race. If whites were not the measurably smartest, strongest, most efficient and advanced, then they should equally be removed in favor of whatever lifeform is better. And people like you are specifically a greater threat to the next stage of civilization because you fight against it to preserve the state of life you hold that you know is inferior.

>The feature, first reported by CNET a year ago and officially called private tabs with Tor, is built into Brave 0.23. The official Brave 1.0 is due to ship this year, but 2.8 million people already use the browser monthly, Eich said. To use the new feature, you can either select "New Private Tab with Tor" from the file menu or flip on the Tor switch once you've opened a new private tab. Using Tor on one tab doesn't affect other ordinary or private tabs.

>"Studies show that users expect private tabs prevent things like ISPs tracking them or other people on Wi-Fi tracking them," but in fact ordinary private tabs don't, Zhu said. "Tor private tabs bring private tabs much closer to what the user expects private tabs to do."

<Mozilla says it's too early to know when the project will bear fruit. But Brave's Tor support is here now -- although in a testing stage to try to find problems and patch known privacy leaks compared to Tor's better-tested browser.

It's one guy. Some kind of shill. Operates across the site. /tech/ refuses to ban him though. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the BO being ideologically aligned with him.

NetBSD works way better on the pi's and supports the older and lesser models fine. Has been that way for a few years. OpenBSD just recently started supporting them in a limited fashion and I don't think they will put much effort in to expanding support because of the whole binary blob issue. I could be wrong but I think the only reason the /arm64 OBSD port exists at all is because of the pine64.

Doesn't change the fact that I'm sick of Unix to the point that I'm about to reinstall Windows XP, at least for general use. Doesn't change the fact that Linux is a piece of shit. I tried a couple of different OSs that people here suggested, and holy shit, they actually just work. I didn't even remember what just being able to do things was like. You would think that I would have compatibility issues installing OSs that are probably used by 6 people, but no, they actually work perfectly, on computers that won't accept any of the BSDs and most LiGNUx distros. I actually forgot what it's like to just be able to install something that works, and not having to spend an hour getting everything I want to use to work.

>umm, yes because the EU has its own flight regulations different than the USA

But people aren't talking about flight regs, they're sperging about "international borders" like it's 1940 and the EU doesn't exist. Like they expect German/Vichy anti-aircraft batteries to be trained on OP's ultralight like it's a Bristol Beaufighter. If it's a matter of strict European flight regulations, fine.

You got that right. He's on his 4th or 5th prototype, but they never, ever fly. He's become a bit of a laughing stock, but there's a lot out there that salute his tenacity. The last attempt I saw from him at least looked like it had a lighter body, but even running the thing down a hill and over a ramp, there was no lift.

if only he had the same tenacity reading books he'd probably be able to to build an actual flying aircraft

It's the current year. Is there anything out there better than LaTex for typesetting technical documents? The syntax used in LaTex is god awful, but of course the only reason anyone puts up with it is the beautifully typeset document that results. Since I've been out of academia for a while, I'm wondering if there is any viable alternative, or are people still doing things the old ways? I do see that many popular editors have preview functions for latex formulas, that's nice, but it doesn't entirely ameliorate the pain.

The idea is to have 100% semantic markup. A tree-like expression is the only sensible way of doing it because a math expression is a tree structure. People are just not used to thinking of an expression like "2 + 3 / 4" as a tree, they think "take two, add three, divide by four, except you have to take into account order of operations, so first read the division, then take two and add the result of the division". With a tree-syntax on the other hand the expression

(+ 2
(/ 3 4))
reads as "the sum of two and the quotient of three and four". But since people are so used to infix notation they find it more intuitive and easier to read.

What's jewgle's endgame? Is there one? To me, their agenda seems so clear, and every day they keep making it clearer. It seems like lots of people see part of it, especially when it comes to jewtube, but it just seems to run so deep. Now that almost nothing published is "copyrighted" per say, it seems information is more controlled than ever.

Why? And how can we, really, fight the control of our thoughts?

They want to destroy the concept of individuality by claiming (stealing) ownership of all free ideas. They corrupt culture, race, intellect, science, politics, communication, religions and natural laws to enslave humanity for the first step.
