8ch Attention-Hungry Games 24

Last Round: >>66174

Archive of Past Rounds:!BA8V0KYD!eRw01c3zLKSa3wzSEHE00g (Updated to Round 19)

Hello /sudo/. Some time ago, CodeMonkey wanted to try a Hunger Games event for advertising boards using the global announcement feature. Now that I made a thread on Thursday, I'm not as worried about not getting enough nominees as I was last thread. I may run this on Saturday night after all.

For the 8chan Attention-Hungry Games, any board with less than 300 users can nominate themselves to participate, with up to 48 boards being able to participate (or we can go to 24 or 36 if we don't get enough boards for some odd reason). These 48 or so boards compete on a Hunger Games simulator hosted on BrantSteele. The current code for the regular events as of this writing is at which is based off of

The Mansion code that I used once but regretted using afterwards is at from >>>/hungergames/17115

Anyway, the winner gets to be advertised as a global announcement for about a week.

As for the requirements for signing up:

1. No boards that promote raiding other 8chan boards.

2. Must have less than 300 active users at the start of the game.

3. Can't have won the hunger games in the past week. Last week's winner is >>>/fukemo/

4. Need to submit a SFW sentence that advertises their board that CodeMonkey can put in the global announcement. (NSFW boards are welcome to join, but the announcement should be SFW). Failure to do so will result in anons deciding your sentence via dubs, usually to your detriment. CodeMonkey will be the one to determine what is and what isn't SFW as he controls the global announcements.

5. It is recommended you post a picture with your nomination, and that picture should be square as it will be stretched otherwise. I will determine the gender of you tribute based on the picture. If I can't tell, I am defaulting to M. Also, MLP images will be ignored unless it came from a MLP board, if the BO approves of it, or from a certain image for /suicide/ until their BO says otherwise as they had that certain image before I added this part of the rule.

6. If a BO of a board does not want to participate, please don't nominate it. Board Owners, if you don't want to participate but someone nominated you, please let me know before the start of the round and I will remove it from the list. As of now, /miku/, /jp/, and /startrek/ have asked not to participate.

7. Nominate only 1 board per IP hash per post. For posts that nominate more than 1 board and an IP hash nominating multiple boards, I will take the first one and ignore the rest, and I will know if you are samefagging. For those with VPNs, note that someone may be using the same VPN as you when nominating, which means they may have the same IP Hash and I can't distinguish VPN users from normal ones.

8. Once a round concludes, please wait until the next thread is created before you nominate a board.

The next round will start

Saturday between 6pm and 8pm ET (if we get 48 nominations by Saturday morning)

I am aware that running this on Sunday night gets in the way of 8chanmania, so I guess I am willing to try Saturday night if we have enough nominations, even though it doesn't work as well for me. That being said, I don't want to put in filler if I can help it, so I may run this on Sunday if there are still empty slots by Saturday morning.

With that all being said, nominate your boards now and suggest some events for either code if you want (or even better, put your events into the mansion code since I won't mind people messing with that code. Just let me know if you do update it). Also, if I missed anything, let me know so I can correct the OP for next time.

Originally it was presented as a proof of concept which crashes some macOS/iOS applications, including safari.

From what I can see, the page content abuses some Unicode characters known as ZALGO text.

I can't report it officially since I was banned on mozilla bugzilla, so can someone repost it to mozilla's bugzilla so they fix their remains of a browser?

Data Dumps

This board has seen a surge of activity with the happening of Summer, so I'm going to put all of this in to one thread for new chummers. You know what's schway as fuck? Having loads of data on your disk so that you're not selling your soul to the corps every time you look something up. It feels pretty great to have a local store of information that you know you have no matter what. So here's some good dumps to get you started. Please feel free to add anything you want to this thread:

/Cyber/ Academy - Books,Podcasts,Forums.

Hello /cyber/!

I come to you today in search of guidance.

There's plenty of INFORMATION on the web about:

* How to program.

* How to configure your router.

* How x protocol works.

And while that's cool 'n all,that's just INFORMATION, fragments info,that you read in x forum or wiki and forget in 3-5 hours.

I propose,we try to LOCATE and ORGANIZE technical books,courses,and instructional videos, in order to facilitate the study of computers and their inner workings.


what's the point of looking /cyber/ if you don't have the know-how a citizen of the web should have.

>How will it be organized?

i was thinking about using a binary tree.

So can any one recommend,books,pod casts or other material that could be used for self study?

i made a similar thread on lain-chan,and they pointed me to Computer Networks' by Andrew S. Tannenbaum, as a introductory book about computer networks,their technologies,organizations & protocols.

The idea is to make a single thread,asking about content for a specific theme(applied math,networking theory,etc) ONE THEME AT A TIME.Get the entries make a list and post it.Then move to a different subject,we would refine the list over time.

So.. right now we need to decide what THEMES we will need to look at.I Recommend:

History of Computation,History of programing,Applied math,"programing theory"(what's a class?,Programming paradigm?),networking theory,Something about the operational systems we have today.

Any one would recommend additions or changes?

There are people who still don't understand how pozzed social media is.

people sometimes talk about fancy pens and mechanical pencils. my sister is an artist, I steal some of her pencils sometimes, like pic related. I've been using it for a while now and I really like how it looks (professional looking, has metal parts on it that look nice) and how the eraser works (long and thin, you just keep pulling it out as it depletes so you dont have to replace it often). I also like how it says japan on it. japan is cool.

Hello devs. Where should I follow latest updates of OpenIB?

The GitHub repo hasn't been getting commits for months, but obviously as >>40654 shows there's a lot of fun going on here, alive and kicking.

I had been running my own imageboard instance for years, starting all the way from Tinyboard, vichan, infinity, infinity-next, then eventually OpenIB. Really hate seeing all of those becoming abandonware, so thanks and please keep up the great work!

UNDENIABLE TRUTH 8CHAN ADMINISTRATION IS LYING ABOUT WHAT IT RUNS ON ITS SERVERS deliberately removes parts of its codebase from the OpenIB software. I will list the removed functionality below. You can evaluate this yourself by visiting and downloading the archive posted by the hacker.

1. The Alacrity Daemon

The Alacrity-related code is removed from the public OpenIB release. The files associated with Alacrity are: inc/alacrity.php, inc/alacrity2.php, alacrity3.php. If you evaluate you will see that Alacrity is not publicized here. If we peek into inc/config.php.php from the hacked version, we can also see configuration related to Alacrity. Here are the configuration variables:

// Alacrity
$config['alacrity'] = array();
$config['alacrity']['enabled'] = false;
$config['alacrity']['host'] = '';
$config['alacrity']['port'] = 80;
$config['alacrity']['options'] = array();

2. Image deduplication

Image deduplication is not implemented on the open source version of OpenIB. If we look at the hacked version of config.php, we can clearly see:

// Image dedup. See inc/instance-config.php for how to enable it, more than one config option needs setting.
$config['image_deduplication'] = false;

This does not exist on the public OpenIB. See: It does not exist.

3. Various features and stuff that has not been implemented.

1. The Nerv Center is not public.

2. The oath implementation used for banners is not implemented. OpenIB does not give you a banner implementation at all (and neither did Infinity; czaks has to re-implement it). The files related to oath are oath.php, oath_authorize.php, and oath_whoami.php. Not to mention code related to it in the templates.

3. Several features taken directly from the changelog are not implemented on the public OpenIB. Here are a few examples:

>* Added Request board backup button to the Board Owner dashboard under Administration.

>* Implemented CAPTCHA check at 0% of file uploads.

>* Added a tripcode whitelist option for Board Owners.

>* Added antinecrobump functionality to deletions;

>* Added new super secure tripcodes.

>* Fixed [-] button in the catalog;

>* Fixed tile resizing bug in the catalog (Very Small, Medium and Large tiles were resized to Small after clicking on [Show All]).

Why are these things not public on OpenIB? You were queried about this long ago on the tracker ( to which you replied:

>We dont publish our anti-spam efforts.

>Doing so would be akin to keeping your poker cards face up and trying to bluff that you have a royal flush when you really just have a pair of Jacks.

Yet none of what I have mentioned is related to antispam functionality at all. These are all usability or convenience related features, that have no reason to be hidden.

So I ask again: Why are these things not public on OpenIB? 8chan isn't open source.

>looking for jobs

>every single offer is asking for years of experience with a certain technology/framework/thing

>just want a junior dev position

why is it so hard to find entry level dev jobs?

ThinkPad (and Toughbook) thread

Old one hit 400 posts, again.

>tfw the seller of a highly modded X31 does not respond to my inquries anymore

It will require a lot of new technology to go to outer space for commercialized travel and mining. Speaking of which, I am data mining and need more responses on this survey.

C learner: problem with strcat

I was doing homework, and here is my code:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
char word1[25], word2[13], spc1[1] = " ";

printf("Type your first word.");
scanf("%s", &word1);
if (strlen(word1) > 12)
printf("Error. Word is too big.");
goto p1;

printf("Type your second word");
scanf("%s", &word2);
if (strlen(word2) > 12)
printf("Error, word is too big.");
goto p2;

strcat(word1, spc1);
printf("New word is: %s", word1);

So basically, the question asked for me to create a program where the user would type 2 words, but none could be greater than 12 characters. That being ok, I would need to concatenate those words and print as a 1 word only. My first problem was that the print had no space between the words. Example, if the entry was "Infinite Chan" it would print "InfiniteChan".

I then created a new string called spc1 that would be a space " ", I would then concatenate word1 to space and then the new word ("Infinite ") would be concatenated to word2, printing "Infinite Chan". But hell, the thing is working with just strcat(word1, spc1); . When I print, the output is correct, "Infinite Chan".

Why is that?

You know what uses technology? The US International Military. You know what this survey is about? The US International Military. Do it.

Something better

The issue: Modern PC's have become overly complex and undependable. Botnet hardware prohibits users from understanding or controling their hardware. Microcode, buggy BIOS, firmware. Backdoors on a hardware level. Layered on top is the most complex set of software, whether you are running Windows, Mac, GNU/Linux, or a BSD. Security holes, endless bugs, and unexpected behavior. A never-ending onslaought of updates, fixes, and "improvements." Proprietary OS's cannot be trusted. The various open source options are an unorganized mess. A large, uncoordinated community of so-called developers relentlessly hacking together haphazard code that is always breaking. The casual, community-driven developement model was novel at the time, but now it's unweildy and dangerous.

Every year software becomes larger and requires more resources. Manufacturers are always coming out with newwer hardware, and the average consumer is elated to scrap their thousand dollar device for a more shoddily manufactured and expensive one. None of these machines are built to last.

Think of all the money and time that is spent developing and manufacturing modern computers. Think of the cost that consumers pay to aquire and maintain these devices. And now consider that these items are treated as disposable. It might be forgivable if modern computers fulfilled their purpose, but instead they are riddled with bugs, defects and poor craftsmanship.

Booting takes an unpredictable amount of time. There are always software updates delaying you. Unwanted reboots that take forever. Overly complex user interfaces with countless dials and toggles for the most useless settings. Software updates routinely introduce regressions and break user-expected behavior. A million things to get in the way of actually using the damn thing.

A solution I would like to see: A simple, bare-bones, future-proof, portable computer. Designed to mainly run in text-mode, but graphics would be possible. Physically robust construction with components designed to last. Extremely low-price.

Low-power, simple CPU. Probably an 8-bit Z80, but maybe something 16-bit. I know very little about CPUs, but the idea would be to have a CPU that is affordable, ubiquitous, and not backdoored or otherwise voulnerable to attack. (Think about microcode infection, firmware exploits, and the recent Ubuntu BIOS corruption debacle.)

Bare-bones BIOS/OS in ROM. Would be able to access and execute code stored on battery-backed RAM, internal flash storage chip, or stored on USB flash. Would include a simple text editor, BASIC, assembler, and small and simple C compiler. Some small utilities for file management, etc. Not likely to have any multitasking.

Standard keyboard. No chiclet shit. Highest quality. Keyboards are how we interact with a computer, and anything subpar is unnacceptable.

Powered by standard AA batteries with optional AC adaptor. Proprietary batteries = planned obsolesence. The simple CPU and components would allow the machine to be powered by 4 AA batteries for many hours of continuous use. Rechargable AA batteries would work.

Non-backlit reflective LCD screen. Backlights are unnecessary. They waste battery and are just another component that will fail.

Instant boot and shutdown. A dependable machine that is simple and easy to use and maintain.

Perfect for writing code. All needed tools built right into the machine. No nonsense to distract you. Store countless text documents in RAM or internal flash. Perfect for archiving and acessing your data.

Would work very well as a word processor. Power on and just start typing.

Does anyone else feel this way? Does anyone else want such a device? Does it exist? Will it ever?

So now /b/ mods are openly encouraging anons to raid /pol/ with CP.

Can we please FINALLY do something permanent about /b/? The half-measures have not done anything but make it worse. If he kept his shit to his own board that would be fine with me, IDGAF. But this crosses a pretty significant line IMO.

How to get a solid foundation in compsci mathematics

This guide assumes you forgot everything from highschool. No you don't have to learn any of this in order to program you can just start hacking around every .c file in your git source clone and see what happens. Why would you want to learn math? Because it will change your thinking. You won't be easily fooled by bullshit, you will have tools to sort through obvious logical fallacies. You will be able to optimize programs and create your own algorithms. You will be able to estimate. Above all, you will be able to solve problems using computation which is what computer science is all about. And least of all, you will get paid more than anybody else without this knowledge so if your goal is shekels then read on. Note: DO THE EXERCISES. You won't learn otherwise. Books instead of video lectures were chosen because they've lasted 30+ years some of them in relevancy in the field, also lectures disappear all the time like when MIT nuked all one prof's Physics OCW lectures because he tried to pickup a student, setting a precedent that at anytime this information can disappear. Read a book nigga.

Math Preliminary

Basic Mathematics by Serge Lang

Buy/Pirate this book (he's dead). It's highschool math, from the perspective of a Mathematician. You will learn up Pre-Calculus and be prepared for rigorous proofs later.

An Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning" by Peter J Eccels

This changes you from rote drilling and being a human calculator in highschool to learning what math actually is, and what proofs do. Excellent, excellent book.

How to Solve It by G. Polya

How to do proofs, written in 1940s and still for sale in every Chapters/B&N bookstore to this day because it's the best proof helper that exists.

Welcome to Proofs

Calculus" by Spivak

Actually, you are learning ANALYSIS, in addition to calculus. Torrent the 3rd edition w/the answer book. This is a fucking hard assed book, you may be better off reading "Advanced Calculus" which is actually easier, as the intro points out that Spivak's exercises are difficult as shit:

Discrete Math Intro it also comes with lectures on jewtubes Doing real discrete math and probability.

Linear Algebra by Friedberg, Insel and Spence

Get the latest version (piracy). It's proof centric, this will come in handy later when you need to understand some Linear applications and don't know how something works so can revert back to your training in LA in proofs. LA is heavily, heavily used in all game programming. Also in cryptography and numerous other CompSci fields.

Images keep disappearing

Why the fuck do images still keep disappearing? It's been 8 months since the hack, fix your site already.

Here's a recent example: >>>/kocsog/4155

The images was there a few days ago, here it is archived by the Wayback Machine:

And here's the archiving from today, which shows the 404, in case someone reposts it meanwhile:

I know that I can repost it somewhere else, I've spent hours finding the missing images and then hunting down copies that match the sha256 hash, sometimes without success. I wouldn't whine if this was missing since the hack, but now I have proof that this one disappeared recently. How? And why? Don't you think you should do something about it?

The current state of Wine

I've been fairly impressed with how much progress Wine has been making over the past year, so I thought I'd open a thread about recent developments with the compatibility layer.

/sudo/ feature request thread

The nerv center is cute, but please consider:

Bobber - prevent thread from being pruned/slid past end of catalog

Whitelist/Blacklist board option - approved posting IPs instead of only having a ban list

Have Mod actions return to mod.php/reports instead of index.html

I saw some other neat features requested month or two ago, but I can't find the archived threads, so anons please add them and use this as a general feature request thread

What happened to TAD? Haven't seen him online in a while.

Time to raise the Itanic?


So it occurred to me that now might be a good time to pick up Itanium server hardware on the used market to re-purpose as a personal workstation.



>No ME. These processors were designed for multi-socket systems, so they relied on the system to provide remote management, eg HP iLO. Typically this has its own separate ethernet port which can be left disconnected.


>Totally invulnerable to Meltdown and any future Spectre-class vulnerabilities. The Itanium architecture is based on explicit parallelism via VLIW. It doesn't do speculative execution.


>Gentoo port available





>Horrendous power draw and bloody noisy


Best option looks to be systems about 10 years old. By then it was only HP making them. These systems started around $10K and could run up to $100K+

There are still a few refurb IT outfits asking big money for these, but you can find them cheap enough on ebay. The blade servers are the most ubiquitous and cheapest, although this obviously presents the problem of acquiring an enclosure. Some of the blades sell cheap enough that it might work out to cannibalise them for CPUs and RAM to populate another server.

I've never worked with these systems myself. Does anyone have an insights into whether this is a viable idea? Performance comparisons to current hardware are a bit of an unknown. I believe it depends a lot on the workload, particularly how parallelisable it is.

This is so typical of old botnet machines.

Any way around this?

Thinkpad Thoughts

I was wondering how long a used Thinkpad would last as a daily driver. I'm a more worried about battery life than anything else. Moreover where do I find a cheap x220.

High-Risk US Hosting

I'm starting up my own VPS company in the US with a policy of not giving a shit about complaints, except where required.

I'm looking to gauge interest in such a service. If you're interested in a US based 'semi-bulletproof' hosting solution, please let me know what your needs are.

Yes, (((Google))), but I've disabled login required. Email me at if you want to talk without filling out a form. Encryption friendly; public PGP key is 0xcbda5c6b6a4627ac on MIT.

Policies will be that all complaints will be forwarded along to client. I will leave it up to the client to handle DMCA complaints. I will work with high-risk websites like imageboards on issues like malicious users uploading CP, but I have no interest in hosting child pornography or things like 8chan's old pedo boards, so if that's your thing, please look elsewhere and/or commit suicide.

Exist node friendly. Hatespeech friendly. Dox friendly (minus CCN/SSN). Lolicon / bestiality is permissible where I reside, where the servers will be hosted, and where the LLC is incorporated. No fraud, no spam, no system abuse. Obey the law and I will respect your privacy and rights.

Imagetrips - An idea to reduce CP through public VPNs/proxies

I propose an image tripcode(imagetrip) system to reduce the posting of CP though VPNs. An image trip code works like a regular trip code with respect to how it is produced.

When a poster wants to make a post containing an image/video or embed through a public VPN/proxy, he enters his imagetrip password in a field allocated for the purpose and the system generates a trip. Then, the produced tripcode is checked against a Pre Approved list of tripcodes contained in a database table column. If the tripcode matches an entry in the database, the post goes through. Otherwise it doesn't.

Pre Approved list of image trip codes

Here I describe how the approved list of trip codes is produced. To get his trip code into the approved list, the user has to first register the tripcode for approval. Once submitted, the tripcode becomes usable only after a week of submission. During this week the user can only make text posts though public VPNs/proxies. Posts containing an image/video or embed are not allowed during this time.

After a week of submission, the trip code gets automatically approved and added to the database table of trial tripcodes. From hereon, that particlar imagetrip gets approved to post 50 images during the 2nd week, 100 images during the 3rd week, 200 images through the 4th week. After 4 weeks have passed, and if the posted has posted at least 100 images by this time, the trip code gets added to the table containing the Final approved list of tripcodes of the database. During any stage of the approval period or even after the trip code gets approved, if the poster posts an image that amounts to CP and gets banned for it, that trip code gets removed from the approved list and he has to start all over again.

Points I emphasise

1. Under this system making text posts through public VPNs/proxies will never be affected. You would never need any trip code ever to make text posts. This will work just as before.

2. The approval process is time dependent as well as number of posts dependent

3. Image trip codes are not displayed publicly or identifiable to global mods or Board owners or volunteers. The entire process takes place behind the scenes. If a user posts CP and gets banned for such his imagetripcode gets removed from the approved list automatically.

This protocol is intended to slow down and minimize the posting of CP through public VPNs/proxies. It will not completely stop it

There has to be a better way

>post something

>want to add an reaction image

>browser for 2hours until i find what im looking for

We need something that easily allows you to browse your tagged reaction images and then adds the image to your post.

Hydrus is good for tagging but you would have to start it everytime you post and then manually browse to the file afterwards anyways.

Why is there no better way to do this yet?

AI-Driven Marketing in Games and Media

Originally saw this "leak" posted on /v/. All of this is unverified right now, but the concepts presented here seem solid. The /v/ thread was targeted by D&C shills within minutes and the whole thing went to shit almost immediately.

A few things I want to point out here:

1. The AI apparently uses voice analysis to determine things like mental state, a history of responses to in-game events and content, and (for women) menstrual cycle

2. The AI will use this data to craft user-specific marketing, and determine what time is best to present these advertisements to players

3. One suggested tactic is to have an AI-controlled user in an MMORPG pretend to be a player and manipulate other players into buying microtransactions (for example, by bragging about finding good drops in pay-to-play dungeons

4. One slide talks about "Out-Of-Home advertising", which combines things like cellphone location, facial recognition, and internet-connected advertisement platforms (e.g. billboards, in-restaurant TV screens, etc) to present user-tailored advertising. I think that this has been discussed here before so it's interesting to see it included here.

5. Another slide discusses using AI-controlled accounts and bots on various types of social media sites, including imageboards.

Say goodbye to the internet, net neutrality was only the beginning.

Where to get latest Cyber and Tech New/Updates

Where to go to keep updated on the latest tech, and the evolution of our world into one out of a cyber novel?

Searching for these things just leads to masses of uninformed, click-bait garbage. But I know their are gems hiding around the net somewhere…

Bugs report

I think it's a good idea to have a thread to report misc bugs in, that don't need a whole thread.

It may be good to sticky this too, so all users that have to report a bug can do it here instead of clogging up the index. Thoughts, CM?

Advent of Code 2017 #3

Advent of Code is a series of small programming puzzles for a variety of skill levels. They are self-contained and are just as appropriate for an expert who wants to stay sharp as they are for a beginner who is just learning to code. Each puzzle calls upon different skills and has two parts that build on a theme.
