If you've used both (desktop or server), what's your opinion on them? Do you have a clear favourite for desktop use?

If possible, tell a bit about noteworthy experiences on these:

>initial installation/setup and upgrades


>filesystem layout, ease of configuration

>package manager, ports, updates

>availability and third party packages and their state

>missing features

>supported hardware

What features do you miss from FreeBSD when using OpenBSD and vice versa? If you like ZFS, is there a way to archieve similiar functionalty within Open with the tools that are there - will there be a HAMMER port? Does anything in administration or usage slow you down in the things that you actually want to do?

Please do not discuss the recent CoC nonsense, as there is a separate shitposting thread for this.

>If you have more to say on that topic (or others), I'd love to hear.

OpenBSD's security is not something that you need to setup or tune. It is built in the base system and in some packages as well. Don't think about security as containing "bad activities" within a chroot/jail/vm. Just take a look at this:


Warning: people with no background in cs may understand little.

The browser can reach every file in the system by default.

Key iPhone Source Code Gets Posted Online in Biggest Leak in History

(pic 1)

<Source code for iBoot, one of the most critical iOS programs, was anonymously posted on GitHub.

<Someone just posted what experts say is the source code for a core component of the iPhone’s operating system on GitHub, which could pave the way for hackers and security researchers to find vulnerabilities in iOS and make iPhone jailbreaks easier to achieve.

<The GitHub code is labeled “iBoot,” which is the part of iOS that is responsible for ensuring a trusted boot of the operating system. In other words, it’s the program that loads iOS, the very first process that runs when you turn on your iPhone. It loads and verifies the kernel is properly signed by Apple and then executes it—it’s like the iPhone’s BIOS.

<The code says it’s for iOS 9, an older version of the operating system, but portions of it are likely to still be used in iOS 11.

<Apple has traditionally been very reluctant to release code to the public, though it has made certain parts of iOS and MacOS open source in recent years. But it has taken particular care to keep iBoot secure and its code private; bugs in the boot process are the most valuable ones if reported to Apple through its bounty program, which values them at a max payment of $200,000.

<“This is the biggest leak in history,” Jonathan Levin, the author of a series of books on iOS and Mac OSX internals, told me in an online chat. “It’s a huge deal.”

(pic 2)

<Levin said the code appears to be the real iBoot code because it aligns with code he reverse engineered himself. A second security researcher familiar with iOS also said they believe the code is real. We don’t know who is behind the leak. Apple did not respond to a request for comment.

<Having access to the source code of iBoot gives iOS security researchers a better chance to fPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Those can't be considered secure unless the user encrypts it himself on his own computer (that's not running something totally botnet like Windows 10). Granted, most people don't know about or how to use PGP, so they fall for this magic web 2.0 interface shit...

We trust Vincent because those who actually read his site knew that those were the risks of using his website?

Vincent is good because he allows PGP specifically tells you that anything other than client side encryption is placebo and only complies with the bare minimum required, which is why he got raided.

In the wake of the Florida school shooting. It's been discovered that the school shooter, Nicolas Cruz, left a comment on some youtube channel "I want to be a professional school shooter" that made the channel owner contact the FBI.

The next day the channel owner was called by the FBI and asked if he knew the person who left the comment. Nicolas Cruz used his real name for his youtube account. And had a metric fuckton of red flag in his countless facebook posts about guns and things that would point out that he would actually do such a thing.

So my question is why the fuck should we bother and go full on tinfoil hat autist-tier when bullshit like that easely go under the radar. What the fuck is the point of the NSA massive surveillance complex and tech if they cannot even prevent these kind of horse shit happening. Why?

I am fatally retarded.

Can someone here give me the straight dope on bitrot, and non-traumatic data loss in general?

I have over 2 TBs of Chinese cartoons, transferred onto a brand-spankin' new drive. After some research, it was the most stable I could find

All of the data is just sitting there. I don't plan to move or rewrite it until the drive begins to fail. There are some currently airing shows and ongoing manga that I follow, so new data is intermittently written to the disk.

But what about loss? Brace yourselves for my retarded questions:

- Does any data loss whatsoever occur when simply copying files from one drive to another?

- Is bitrot a real problem? Does it occur significantly within the span of an average human lifetime? If so, what can I do to avoid it happening with a veritable mountain of data on a single drive?

>argues that arguments are absolutely worthless



>Hard disks have ECC

Do you know how HDDs work? The surface of a disk platter is not a pristine storage medium such as DRAM, HDDs are dependent on ECC to even be able to work and preserve data integrity. A HDD without ECC would be inherently broken, while ECC in DRAM is an additional protection against errors which are usually signs of faulty memory.



So you need like at least a dozen or so tapes if you would like to backup weekly to tape?

So, net neutrality is down the shitter, this is the perfect time to start our own internet. Why?

- ipv6, a lot of providers stuck with v4 and this is a huge shame

- true (?) neutrality: something happens to the neighbor you can still use a backup path

- it's finally like intended: decentralized; no isp control

- it depends on You and your community, not on the ISP; in my area the shittiest buildings have fiber optics with gigabit but our modern house won't get it soon (we have cable says the provider), we stuck at hilarious sub-MB speed and lot of areas are not allowed to do infrastructural upgrades (historical parts of the city so digging and redoing the network is impossible)

So list the router distros and everything that would support mesh networking!

Is it possible?

OKay, so I have a ton of music (I use soulseek a lot). My collection is expanding everyday and I'd like to keep track of when I added something for the first time, and its subsequent positions.

I don't want a HUGE git repo, I don't even want a backup. I just want a log of my files.

Is it possible?

Okay OP here, I'm doing this

>add file names to .txt file

>add .txt file to git

>write a cron task to monitor the folder and update file + reupload to git if anything gets added

The git repo is initialized in /home/user/folder.

I want the directory with the text list to be hidden, so it's named .list and I set up a cronjob to run the following script every 5 minutes.

cd /home/user/folder/ && tree -faRn -o /home/user/folder/.list/1
cd /home/user/folder/ && tree -faRhupsDn --du -o /home/user/folder/.list/2
git -C /home/user/folder add .list
git -C /home/user/folder commit -m $a

It's also monitoring the .git folder (!) and this means that it's committing everytime the script runs. Should I add .git to a gitignore? Why is it watching the .git folder anyway? is it because my directory is named .list? Do I need to double quote it? .list isn't a git repo.

/tech/ is pretty fucking shit, but you are delusional if you think this is any worse than /g/. We do not have (or at least, didn't use to have before the recent influx of halfchan imbeciles) shitty smartphone threads, shitty wallpaper circlejerks where people only post screenshots and no rice recipes, shitty "r8 my build" threads, shitty leg shaving threads, shitty CPU/GPU vendor wars threads, shitty battlestation threads...

Technology boards in Futaba-style imageboards are dead. It's like browsing a place as pedantic and elitist as SlashDot, but everyone talks entirely out of their asses. Imageboards in general are on life support anyway, with most people attempting to provide anything of value for the community getting drowned in drama from fellow users who do not like to see anyone succeeding. Nobody no longers produce OC because it is frowned upon, because at some point in time we adopted a culture of lazyness that encourages bringing down those who are onto something with claims of not your personal army (you think Habbo raids would have been possible today? No, it is obviously a personal army request, not a way to have fun with fellow shitposters), baseless destructive criticism for the sake of acting like a tough guy and general assorted drama.

Wrong. I'm not sure why you believe this. There are plenty OC as screenshots posted to this board everyday. I even posted a picture of a simple LED card for Valentine's Day I made yesterday.

You're right. I totally forgot how big my filter was when posting on /g/. It literally filtered an average of 100 posts per board.

Stop, I'm going to grind my teeth to powder. How can we get people to care? Most people on these sorts of boards are content with feeling superior because they know what's going on and shaking their fists at the elites and the normies, but we're all just as complicit for not doing anything to reverse this even though we have the knowledge. I've managed to convert two people to linux, and I've stopped using social media so that I'm not contributing to the "all my friends are using it" thing that keeps ambivalent people from deleting their accounts. Obviously, that's nowhere near enough.

What are practical steps that can be taken to stop tech apathy?



You can't. Stallman has dedicated his life to lecturing society about freedom and computing. He is a verifiable genius and unverified autist. You're not going to find people much smarter than Stallman who is going to speak about these specific issues. After 3 decades of lecturing the same lectures over and over again, only handfuls of people are even aware of the issues.

Personally, I have ways of telling people about my political position, both the 10 second elevator pitch and also the 2 hour lecture connecting all manner of geopolitics. I don't bother controlling other people, all I can do is give a reasoned lecture about why I don't use Netflix, Facebook, or Apple.
