I want a cellphone because it will make my life more efficient with:

1. A function for unlimited daily alarms.

2. A daily calendar function that I can set events to years in advance.

3. The ability to take spoken and typed notes.

4. The ability of taking and receiving calls and text messages (mostly so I can get a ride when I need it).

5. (and) The ability to take pictures and video.

I'm going too delete the internet browser because I have some bad self control problems on the matter of the internet I run a website blocker on my Thinkpad. I agree with you too a point, but I find it's advantages more valuable than its disadvantages.

>ipfs 0.4.17 is a quick release to fix a major performance regression in bitswap (mostly affecting go-ipfs → js-ipfs transfers). However, while motivated by this fix, this release contains a few other goodies that will excite some users.

>The headline feature in this release is urlstore support. Urlstore is a generalization of the filestore backend that can fetch file blocks from remote URLs on-demand instead of storing them in the local datastore.

>Additionally, we've added support for extracting inline blocks from CIDs (blocks inlined into CIDs using the identity hash function). However, go-ipfs won't yet create such CIDs so you're unlikely to see any in the wild.

skip out on EFI if your motherboard still supports regular ol' bios.

It's not worth the trouble.



Kyle is that you?



>. but the gentoo handbook is really confusing when it comes to installing GRUB via EFI instead of MBR

In my first try the installation was fucked up because I activated "legacy" on a "UEFI" motherboard. Then I deactivated it and just did a GPT installation like it's said in the book with parted, the only partition that you don't need to create is the 2 MB bios/boot partition. So instead of 4 partitions you just get 3. sda1: efi/boot (in fat32 because microsoft), sda2: swap, sda3: rootfs.

The confusing part is actually with a pure BIOS/MBR system. The tutorial says that you need to tag shit but MBR doesn't support it.

Same thing with the command "set 1 bios_grub on " shit doesn't work and there's a lack of explanation to say what it does.



Your last point is confusing. MBR is the one that supports the active/bootable flag, not GPT (my Dell Latitude complains about me using GPT/BIOS with an "invalid partition table" message because it doesn't find such flag, but boots fine after it).



yea that first 2MB partition is what fucked me over for 2 attempts. they don't tell you what to do with it, just that it'll be used by grub later.

handbook needs a rewrite for that stuff.

everytime you scroll through the page or view a video it automatically subtracts a certain amount of xrp from you.



What a joke. They spent all that time developing a PoS blockchain then ditched it to hop on EOS's coattails with a DPoS algo. Unfortunately for them, DPoS is already proving to have issues with centralization by people buying their votes and exercising in-group preference (EOS is undergoing a Chinese takeover). So the next gen blockchains are implementing DDPoS. TRON is just so far behind.

How does /tech/ back up their Chinese girl cartoons? I had been using Time Machine on the Mac, which worked with no questions asked, but I'm looking for something less gay now.

What I am looking for is an automated solution which will back up my files to a local hard drive that's plugged into my computer. Also, should I back up the entire machine or just my home directory? I think the home directory should be sufficient because the system itself can be just rebuilt by installing the packages again.

I would also like to have several versions of my files, so I can restore some file I deleted last week even if I have already made a new hourly backup. And of course the backup needs to be encrypted or otherwise protected somehow. Really important things like GPG keys or passwords would need to be stored somewhere off-site in addition to the local backup.

What are my options? Is there something you guys are using? Should I roll my own thing with rsync? And just to be clear, I want the functionality, I don't care about the stupid space animations of Time Machine.



Your home directory is probably full of dumping ground trash because users are the lowest of faggots.

I use Borg. There's an exclude file option and I use that to ignore a chunk of crap.




>deduplication, encryption, automation

borg indeed



>Time Machine

Is just a worse rsync. Everything Apple does seems to be crap, glad I don't have to deal with it all the time.

If for some reason rsync is not enough for your needs, take a look at borg.



I always just use rsync. Does borg do anything special?



snapshots, dedup and encryption.

What exactly does the future hold for intel?

Intel is having a rough time of it lately, AMD appears to have finally been able to reap some benefits from their MOAR CORES strategy while at the same time Intel's planned 10nm die shrink appears stillborn and as if being stuck on the same 14nm architecture from 2015 wasn't bad enough they're not even able to move enough parts to fill demand.

AMD's zen 2 line is likely no more than six months away from release, the probability that they will surpass intel in terms of raw IPC are slim and the OC headroom simply does not reach as high but if Intel don't get their shit in order it's really just a matter of time.

At this point whats the likelihood 10nm frustrates Intel to the point they simply try their luck with 7nm instead?

>Has never written an async FSM.



phoneposter pls go


my understanding is all of this bullshit

reason 10nm has problems is because its not much better than 7nm and it NEEDS TO BE for Intel to succeed, but they cant get the silicon lottery to good enough level, everything else seems to be smokescreen around this goal

This is bullshit, matrix does not support that right now. Private keys are currently manually saved and restored by the user.



Don't try to distract from the main concern here: deploying google analytics on any website that touts itself as privacy conscious is pants on head, socks on ears retarded. I'm sure the OE admin must understand that, they being experts on the risks of using discord as white nationalists, so you must ask yourself why they have done so. Because make no mistake, anyone rawdogging that site with their bare ip is now on a list. Antifa raiding is a shit excuse.

Also, you can complete captchas through tor for some websites. Google's internal criteria for this is unknown, but we can probably guess what it might be.



Where does OE use google analytics? It isn't on their main website, nor is it on the Riot instance they host.



At this point your kikery is showing or you are completely oblivious and retarded.

There is no Google analytics on the website. If you somehow see Google analytics, you probably have some weird malware on your browser.

There is a google api on the website because the theme includes space for links to social media at the bottom. That is only on the website. The chat page and chatroom contain nothing of the sort.

Also, i'm pretty sure that if you care so fucking much about your IP being logged, even though you have a VPN/tor you wouldn't be on fucking 8chan to begin with.

Just hang yourself.

>What is XMPP?

Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is a communication protocol for message-oriented middleware.

Unlike most instant messaging protocols, XMPP is defined in an open standard and uses an open systems approach of development and application, by which anyone may implement an XMPP service and interoperate with other organizations' implementations. Because XMPP is an open protocol, implementations can be developed using any software license and many server, client, and library implementations are distributed as free and open-source software.

Matrix's E2E encryption works similarly.



If your gonna use matrix you may as well just use riot.im. Then you don't have to bother installing anything or running a server. If matrix is as secure as you say it is then what difference does it make? just use riot


These overly complicated magic bullet "secure" protocols and services always lure people in to a false sense of security. People end up forgetting basic opsec. Built in authentication and IDs let you become trackable across the internet. That's why glowers love them.



>Built in authentication and IDs let you become trackable across the internet

Even with IRC where it's completely possible to use a different handle per session you'll have people who decide to use just one in multiple sessions, or in different servers, or even services. Likewise, with XMPP there's nothing stopping you from creating different JIDs for different purposes. Or just using one for everything.

Being careful with opsec is something that will always be responsibility of the end user, and no protocol can do shit to prevent an user from doxxing himself. Authentication being in the spec itself just avoids the issue of leaving decisions about it to specific client and server implementations.

Whats the best version of OSX to use in 2018? Brew packages are dropping support more and more often. Most importantly, gcc. It even throws a big error message saying they no longer support 10.9. Are the recent osx releases any good at all? Is it worth it to upgrade to 10.11 or 12 or should i finally uninstall osx from this thing? I never use it for anything serious, just light coding, shitposting and browsing when away form home. I do most of my coding at my desktop, so having a 'just werkz' os like mac has been really useful.

Apple hasn't had unique hardware for over a decade, so trying to say their OS is made to sell hardware by definition makes the OS a selling point you stupid faggot.



>Apple has a selling point

And here I thought they were just catering to retards who want to see stupid shit like round displays and trash can PCs.



>Apple hasn't had unique hardware

If by unique hardware you mean "making their own chips", sure, but that's not what I'm saying.

I'm saying they sell you prebuilts, those prebuilts only come with Macos installed, and Macos license forbids you from installing it on any other hardware.

But keep shilling for the worst of the worst of tech, anon, what could possibly go wrong?

You should go to reddit, the place is much more accessible to newfags. Maybe you'll understand the need for good private trackers in a see of retards.






>You don't actually have to do anything yourself to seed.

You need to have files other people want to download, and you need to not be out-seeded.

Leaving your client open is not enough if nobody wants your files or someone else is already seeding them enough to satisfy demand.
