>The Intel Management Engine is a tool that ships with Intel chipsets, purportedly to ease the job of system administrators. But in reality, it is another restriction on user freedoms, imposed by a company, and used to control your computing.

>The Management Engine (frequently abbreviated as ME) is a separate computer within Intel computers, which denies users control by forcing them to run nonfree software that cannot be modified or replaced by anyone but Intel. This is dangerous and unjust. It is a very serious attack on the freedom, privacy, and security of computer users.

>At first, it was designed to help system administrators and other employees to remotely manage computers, and was advertised as a computer feature for business customers.

>Over time, Intel imposed the Management Engine on all Intel computers, removed the ability for computer users and manufacturers to disable it, and extended its control over the computer to nearly 100%. It even has access to the main computer's memory.

>It now constitutes a separate computing environment that is designed to deny users the control of their computer. It can even run applications that implement Digital Restrictions Management (DRM). See Defective by Design to learn why DRM is bad.

>Because of Intel's attack on users' freedom, to avoid being denied freedom, privacy, and security, computer users wanting to use a machine with an Intel processor must use older computers with no Management Engine, or whose Management Engine is disabled.

>Whenever companies follow Intel's path, we will need to design our own hardware to keep being able to escape such attacks on freedom, by ensuring that users can run fully free software on it. This will also create the necessary building blocks that will enable users to benefit from hardware freedoms in the future, when manufacturing technologies are easily available to end users.

The only theoretical way to put an end to the Intel Management Engine is to exploit the fuck out of it and cause worldwide computer outages on a newsworthy scale.



That already happened. Nothing really came of it.

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.




Why, you can go as far as the Pentium MMX 233 MHz and stay safe from Spectre.

The Rust team is happy to announce a new version of Rust, 1.24.0. Rust is a systems programming language focused on safety, speed, and concurrency.

This release contains two very exciting new features: rustfmt and incremental compilation!

For years now, we’ve wanted a tool that automatically can reformat your Rust code to some sort of “standard style.” With this release, we’re happy to announce that a preview of rustfmt can be used with 1.24 stable.

Back in September of 2016 (!!!), we blogged about Incremental Compilation. While that post goes into the details, the idea is basically this: when you’re working on a project, you often compile it, then change something small, then compile again. Historically, the compiler has compiled your entire project, no matter how little you’ve changed the code. The idea with incremental compilation is that you only need to compile the code you’ve actually changed, which means that that second build is faster.

As of Rust 1.24, this is now turned on by default. This means that your builds should get faster! Don’t forget about cargo check when trying to get the lowest possible build times.

This is still not the end story for compiler performance generally, nor incremental compilation specifically. We have a lot more work planned in the future. For example, another change related to performance hit stable this release: codegen-units is now set to 16 by default. One small note about this change: it makes builds faster, but makes the final binary a bit slower. For maximum speed, setting codegen-units to 1 in your Cargo.toml is needed to eke out every last drop of performance.

If you've been here for more than a week, you know that that we're inundated with pointless Rust threads to an extent where there isn't much to say anymore. It's partly their own fault, for allowing the technicals of their language to be lost amidst the worthless SJW talking points espoused by a vocal section of their community.



>worthless SJW talking points espoused by a vocal section of their community

thats just about every community in the normie world tho, i mean my opinion of it is meh, but it would be nice to see that shit ignored and have some decent tech talk on this tech board...



That would be the dream. Politics is not technology.



There was never decent tech talk on /tech/.

What company makes the best HDDs and why is it Seagate?

74 posts and 8 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.



I secretly hope for exactly that



I do, too--except not so secretly.



>not even a handful posts that are worth reading in the thread

What the fuck did you expect to happen after such a cum-bukkake'd OP?


All the Seagate disks I've owned always ran significantly hotter that WDs/Samsungs/HGSTs (even when idle) and were always developing some kind of additional problem after some time. It seems to me that the quality of the magnetic medium on the platters used by Seagate is comparatively low and the ECC system must work hard all the time to try and maintain data integrity, which results in both higher operating temperatures as well as reduced long-time reliability. But maybe someone else know more about this and can explain it better.

So you want to kill google? And not just kill it, fucking demolish it? Three things need to happen. All of Google's money comes from advertising, analytics, and hosting. To kill google we need to drive up their operational costs while lowering their profits.

Fuck with their advertisements

If you have ever worked with adsense before you will know that the one thing they absolutely despise is telling people to click ads. They want people who are actually interested in products to click advertisements, because only they will be persuaded to purchase products. On top of that, companies pay google per click. If they are paying a ton of money and few people are buying their products, they will pull out.

STEP 1: Go on to youtube, google shopping, or anyplace else with adsense ads in private browsing mode on a vpn or proxy.

STEP 2: Click all the ads you possibly can

STEP 3: Hop on a new proxy/vpn/tor circuit, and clear out the browser

STEP 4: Repeat



Fuck with their file storage

Google stores everything you upload, and keeps it there even if it gets "deleted." Storing stuff costs lots of money, and high speed ssd drives to keep it all on aren't cheap. The more you upload, the more they pay.

STEP 1: Choose a platform that allows you to upload files(eg: youtube, drive, gsites, ect)

STEP 2: Get a file that is at or over the maximum file limit

STEP 3: Upload it again, and again, and again, and again

EXTRA STEP: If you are doing youtube make a huge file with a ton of random music, text on the screen, and game footage. Their matching algorithm will have to go through your whole 1hr + video and match everything there for monitization.

Now YaCy is using 3,6 GiB RAM out of 8, but I set it to do so, and I'm crawling english wikipedia. Network 160 KiB/s - 600 KiB/s. Processor - 20%. Hard drive - 89 GB (1 bilion indexes)



I meant milion indexes



>3,6 GiB RAM out of 8

wew, that's pretty bad. should i still let my 32 bit server run it?



To be clear, YaCy typically supplements your index with other people's indexes to let you search the web, so you're scraping Wikipedia so that you can have quicker access to those results, right?



I let YaCy use 4 GB of RAM it's my choice.

Here you have system requirements



It is faster, but searching indexes of other peers is fast too. Wikipedia isn't all crawled by YaCy network yet, so I thought I can do this (After crawling indexes are shared among peers).

No serious requirements other than custom domain support and some form of reliability/security. Multiple included mailboxes would be a plus.

You are mostly right, but a different types of beta males look at a clearly volatile female like asuka and make excuses, because they see her instability as a way to make up for their own lack of personality and assertiveness. They are subs, basically. Anno included.

A future with Asuka consists only of screaming, punching holes in the walls, beating the shit out of each other, destroying furniture, and having the cops called every other night while the kids cry themselves to sleep listening to it.

4 main reasons why it's the best distro

+(like arch) most (stable) up to date packages of any distro

+systemd-free, comes openrc as init

+gtkcucks BTFO, able to choose between i3/lxqt

+nice and simple gui installer


why not void or gentoo?

void- stupid as fuck package manager. bloated as fuck hybrid package management. also buggy as fuck. stay clear

gentoo- not a good desktop os. compiling is something of the past and is overall just a clusterfuck to use (coming from a gentoo user for 3 years)

Honestly, this makes me feel better about void. I think ponyfags are gay as hell, but the fact that they don't shun and turn away degenerates is a good sign imho. Normie repellent as far as I am concerned.


Its an ok distro, any problem it has can be resolved by cross referencing it with Arch and the installer is pretty nice.


>Where the fuck is the iso

Digging around for an iso and getting one that shouts out archbang or artix(same fucking thing) is annoying as hell. This was 5 months ago so things might have changed but holy shit make up your minds

>32 Bit doesn't work

This is true across everything for Arch based and it has to do with the pgp keys. For which there is no genuine solution but hope they fix it in the year or pick a machine with a different architecture to use a different version.


Wine uses 32 bit libs and other things from the repo. Its not a matter of Wine can't get the libs its that the repo for Wine is broken as shit.

>Why not Just Use Parabola?

Seriously its RMS approved you fucking faggots. Isn't this the distro where one of the devs is some greek fucking anarchist? Its either this one or salix, anyways far too many fucking faggots involved and they won't put in the effort to pull off the FSF standards.

Good things

>Its Arch without Systemd

Arch is piss easy to install if you're too dumb to configure the package manager for Gentoo or just want binary's for everything instead of an emerge. You don't have systemd and you get Pacman which is a pretty good Package Manager.
