You motherfuckers know your shit

So I am asking if someone could help me do a simple personal HTML where I put images and gifs and they'd be scattered around like so in the page, where I could see everything

And I'd want the page to scroll down automatically, as to showcase all the images I've put on display and if there's a possibility for the cycle to start from beginning in a loop

Right now I am using very bare bones version of:

<!DOCTYPE html>




<img src="C:\Users\Me\Desktop\images\1.jpg">

<img src="C:\Users\Me\Desktop\images\gif\2.gif">

<img src="C:\Users\Me\Desktop\images\3.jpg">



I can only scroll it down myself, the images are next to each other horizontally and theres huge gaps between the images, I don't know how to make them packed tight

I only know very basic code so go easy on me

Use flexbox and it will be easy to do.



It's another one of these problems where you don't even know what you want.


Reconsider having the autoscroll shit. What is the point? Let people scroll at their own pace.

I'm looking for a new laptop right now ($400 budget), and I'd like to get hardware with no goverment backdoors (like Intel Management Engine or AMD Platform Security Processor). It needs to be something from the past 10 years, have at least 2GB of RAM, and be capable of running Debian.




Thinkpads still have Intel Management Engine. I've heard that you can disable it on some of them, but I'd prefer a device that doesn't even have it in the first place.



Buy something with and AMD processor then.

>muh PSP

PSP and IME are not the same thing. For one, PSP has no access to the networks unless the OS grants it . Either way if an attacker has a privileged access to run such a thing, then he owns you already.

Not quite. We require access to source code in order to have freedom. Without copyright, we would have the right to freedoms 0,2,3. Freedom 1 would be restricted by virtue of not being available to any user.



These moves are all very obvious once everyone accepts that we are in the state of war. The entire western civilization is under siege and marked for destruction by a group that doesn't even have the honor to declare war out in the open. Instead they oppress the victim into silent acceptance of their own destruction.



I don't think you know what you're saying. The countries being flooded by Africans are the countries who support the will of the EU. The countries who have secured their borders also oppose the EU's migration policy and are not being flooded.



Copyrights are about controlling the dissemination of intellectual culture. If the first person to create a biface kept that from the rest of tribe we would be extinct. If the first person to control fire never shared what he had learned, we'd probably be extinct. If you limit the dissemination of technology you create further inequality in cognitive culture which leads to small groups of people having a hand up on larger groups of people. If every technological advance just leads to a small group having greater control over an even larger group where is this going to put us? It puts us in a technological dark age like in Medieval times when people only weathly and powerful people could read and write.

Information wants to be free. Liars and people who withhold information to control the masses are not working in anyone's best interest. These copyright laws are aimed at memes. He who controls the memes controls the world.

Here's what each of us should do.

Every time a company jumps on board with cenorship of any kind encourage people to boycott them.

Facebook politically censors everything. Print flyers about Minds and Gab. Physically walk around and hand them to people. Explain why Gab and Minds are better. Same with twitter.

Google. Start encouraging people to use DuckDuckGo. Personally use DuckDuckGo for a large percentage of your search queries.

Amazon: There are numerous ecommerce platforms where you can buy and sell. Stop using Amazon. If you are a big amazon seller start gradually moving your products to other platforms so you are not dependent on Amazon

Microsoft. Buy a 50 pack of DVDs and burn 50 Linux disks. Hand them out to people. Do it regularly. Start a Linux user group in your community. It will take work. Stop complaining and just do it.

The (South Korean) government will switch the operating system of its computers from Windows to Linux, the Ministry of the Interior and Safety said Thursday.

>The Interior Ministry said the ministry will be test-running Linux on its PCs, and if no security issues arise, Linux systems will be introduced more widely within the government.

>The decision comes amid concerns about the cost of continuing to maintain Windows, as Microsoft’s free technical support for Windows 7 expires in January 2020.

>The transition to Linux OS and the purchase of new PCs are expected to cost the government about 780 billion won ($655 million), the ministry said.

>Before the government-wide adoption, the ministry said it would test if the system could be run on private networked devices without security risks and if compatibility could be achieved with existing websites and software which have been built to run on Windows.

>The ministry’s digital service bureau chief Choi Jang-hyuk said the ministry expects cost reductions through the introduction of the open-source OS and also hopes to avoid building reliance on a single operating system.

The reason western governments are so reliant on Windows is because of the corrupt politians who undo all the efforts to switch gov PCs to Linux.

Sorry, america, your time is over.



Got some more buzzwords?


I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really GNU/Linux.



>Maybe Linux developers will finally take their OS seriously, or let in people who want to take it seriously.

Well, Linux is just a kernel, whereas GNU/Linux is the system and GNU/Linux isn't an one thing - there are many distributions some of them are funny jokes or shit, like 'Hannah Montana linux', but some other distributions are being made seriously, for example Guix System, Gentoo, etc. But if by 'take their OS seriously' you mean clone Windows, then you should know, Windows isn't a serious OS, because it lacks basic features an OS should have, for example a proper package management. But there are distributions that try to be the same way Windows is - GNU/Linux Mint, Debian, RedHat, Fedora, basically everything having systemd.

Also the purpose of GNU/Linux isn't to make convenient environment for gamers and corporations wanting to sell their proprietary software, but its purpose is to give people freedom. And finally 'Linux developers' are just kernel developers, they don't shape how the OS looks like, that's what distro maintainers do.

I purge dbus from my system and then install xfce. I got it to launch by symbolically linking dbus-launch to /bin/true and exporting a fake DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS to fake network socket linking to /dev/null. But then the xorg-server crashed on startup with the weirdest fucking message

>*insert xorg crashes here*.... dbus-launch --autolaunch=fuck you

I shit you not, that was what appeared on the command line. I grepped through my entire filesystem and the xfce source tree to no avail to find the source of this message, as it shouldn't even appear since dbus is in no fashion installed. If I unsymbolic link dbus-launch it just crashes saying dbus-launch isn't installed. If I symbolic link but don't export DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS then it crashes without the extensions to the command, dbus-launch.

/tech/, somebody here surely has gone through this. Where is the "dbus-launch --autolaunch=fuck you" coming from? I can't find it grepping the source files I compiled myself.

13 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



Gnome, KDE, xfce, mate, cinammon, unity, and lxqt all have hard or token source code/runtime dependencies on dbus or dbus-launch as I just found out.

LXDE and lumina DE are your two choices for sanity or just use a WM alone. One is gtk2 or gtk3 based the other is QT based. You can make LXDE look like windows XP but I duno about making lumina look like windows for normalfag DE replacement. LXDE is stable and requires few updates. Lumina is a WIP that is not done. I'm sure with minimal editing xfce could be made to not use dbus. All the others, which I have checked out above, have non trivial usage of d

bus in their source code.

Of course all of this removes the functionality to click a radio button and shutdown/reboot/hibernate the computer. I have yet to find a replacement that interfaces with HAL to do so. DBUS interfaces with HAL to do all of that functionality and I can't find documentation on how to interface with HAL nor find it in the absolute shit that is dbus source code.



Note that GTK3 requires DBus for accessibility shit which is not removable by configuration because lol gnome. See this for a patch: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1084252-postdays-0-postorder-asc-start-50.html



>note that gtk3 requires malware by default

Noted. I just used some repository to try this shit out. I dont know how any of this stuff actually works other then grepping source code is easy.


Maybe Xorg has that exact condition in which you symlink your dbus-launch and it says "Fuck you" cause the programmer was mad at himself he kept getting that bug



>openbox > icewm

IceWM is more lightweight and it has a working menu, panel, system monitor and clock that just werk out of box. IceWM's configuration files are way comfier than OpenBox. That being said, OpenBox is the 2nd most comfy WM.



Zeronet is written by idiots and prefers marketing bullshit over technical details in its docs. That should be a red flag if you've ever seen one.

Thank you for making this clear again.



...so, is Linux Mint really:

Linux (kernel) + a "Mint modified" GNU OS + systemd?



GNU is the basic OS and Linux is the kernel program that's paired with GNU. Mint is the branding of the specific GNU OS + Linux kernel + systemd manager combination.



ebuild looks interesting. I actually enjoy writing install scripts.


I didn't realize so many people were in the anti-systemd camp.


ca$h do you have a build script for this? This is without any kind of package manager right? How minimal a system is it?

I decided password recovery / cracking would be a good subject for starting people on security related topics. For you complete /newfags/ a hash is pretty much a one way cryptographic function that in most cases is not reversible. In any modern authentication a password hash is stored rather than a plaintext password.

When you punch in your password on a web application to login the application takes your plaintext and feeds it to a cryptographic function then checks to see if it is equal to the stored value if it matches then access is granted. This way the application can function without every knowing your password.

Purpose of cracking a password hash. Recover a plaintext password user who forgot his password. There are a ton of application that can do this and I will discuss some of that later. Right now I just want to drop the basic concepts.

I'm going to do a dictionary attack against an MD5 hash for demonstration purposes. I'll go over the steps. It's actually pretty simple.

Legal disclaimer. Don't break into other people's computer systems or networks unless you have permission. You put on your own pants in the morning and you know the difference between right and wrong. If you don't know the laws where you are at look them up or consult an attorney before penetrating computers or networks that you do not own.

Alright let's have some fun.

What's the point of this thread if you're just going to import a library that does the whole thing for you?



That’s pretty much what 90 percent of software development is these days fam



No wonder modern software is so shit.



Yep, software today would be far better if nobody used libraries and every single program reimplemented all of its hashing, encryption, encoding, and network functionality from scratch. That's a reasonable thought and not at all completely fucking retarded.



What is automation scripting? Take a bunch of programs that already exist. Write a script that calls programs and gets output from them. For some things like this hash cracking bullshit yeah you don't really even need a crypto libraries just a header and addtional file as with this C++ implementation. http://www.zedwood.com/article/cpp-md5-function You could code all of that and compile it or you could just

$(echo -n password | md5sum | cut -d ' ' -f 1)
Get the value as a variable in a bash script and work with it. Depends on if you value your time or maybe you want to write closed source software and sell it. Not sure what your motive (other then developing deeper understanding of a given language) for writing all of that extra code would be. Don't get me wrong. I see where you are coming from. I just don't give a shit.

If you need to reverse engineer the hashing algorithm that's another story. Godspeed.

But honestly most languages built in crypto.

Also why rewrite an library when you can just write a function or two and get the result you want.

The global VPN market is estimated to be worth 23.6 billion in 2019 according to: https://www.statista.com/statistics/542817/worldwide-virtual-private-network-market/

However, using a commercial VPN has one key disadvantage: You have to trust the company to not keep any logs or spy on you in any other way.

There are currently several projects in crpyo trying to tackle this problem with dVPNs, the idea is very simple, you can rent out or buy bandwidth/IP addresses.

These are the three main players at the moment:

Mysterium: already has a working testnet for windows, mac and android. I routinely use it on windows and android and it works well. They were the first player in the market. Based on Ethereum.

Sentinel: They have a working version on testnet for windows, linux, mac and android. Also works really well. They also offer nodes connecting to tor for outgoing connections and are currently testing multihopping. Based on Cosmos.

Privatix: They are an existing VPN company (privatix.com is their page for their "normal" VPN) and they plan to bring over all their vpn users to their dVPN. Also working testnet on windows and linux. Also based on ethereum.

All three of them claim to be the first dVPN, however I think they are on the same level, all have working testnets, so the one that releases to mainnet first is not necessarily farther than the others.

Also all three can tap the market for residental IPs, which are currently very expensive (https://luminati.io/ is one of the leading providers and a residental IP costs 12.5 Dollar per GB with at least a 500 dollar per month commitment)

dVPNs will be able to beat both commercial VPN providers on price (because of more efficiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
