I'm an old hat at PC repair. A little too old, I don't have much experience with new Linux systems or with Windows 7 and 10.

I just got a job doing tech support and PC repair.

Where's a good set of tutorials I can skim through to get myself up to date?

Dumb brainlet's question of the day

Hey /g/, what's the biggest appeal of using Arch Linux over Debian, aside from "it's just better"?

Discussion about paper "Towards a peer-to-peer imageboard"

I'm reading the paper posted by Fredrick Brennan regarding the different approaches of making a decentralized image board and i came to this part.

"In a BitTorrent-like magnet

network, unpopular or old images can fall out of the network over time, but in a

blockchain, all images must be stored forever no matter what they depict."

I think there is a clear winner here being the bit torrent approach, follow the approach most chans have traditionally used that old/inactive images/threads fall out of the ecosystem of the board.

[QUESTION] is XMR.TO legit? (Privacy, instead of mixing BTC)

Bitcoin mixer with XMR

i need it with guns

I’ve heard mixing BTC is practically Useless. So i’ve been researching BTC-> XMR -> BTC instead.

But i don’t have time to download the whole Blockchain (Monero GUI OSX)

Question 1: is xmonero.to legit?

Question 2: Any light/webwallets for XMR (w/o the need to download the whole Blockchain?)

Question 3: Privacy-wise, is this enough?

Bitcoin -> Monero -> Bitcoin, Then those bitcoins are mixed using Helix

Veracrypt file plausible deniability / cuckoo's egg

Hey!

Instead of using an hidden volume for plausible deniability of the existence of an encrypted volume, wouldn't it be also possible to use a file container and and hide the file as something unremarkable?

The encrypted container can't distinguished from random. You could name it "004.dump" or "mem.log" to make it seem like it's just a blob of uninterpretable binary.

Are there any programs which generate big files of data which can't be distinguished from random afterwards?

C vs asm

So I have been thinking about doing a sega genesis back port of undertale and have come to a crossroad of programming it in asm or C. The only arguments I hear are

>The compiler knows better than you, use C

>you can do better low level optimizations on low power platforms, use asm

Which one should I go for, I already know C and I don't have much interest in learning 68k asm

Defending digital spaces

How do you defend digital spaces from being overrun by degenerate communities? Furries turn up and more of them come along, until it's full of furries and people wanting the original content leave so they don't have to deal with it.

Similarly with anime and porn consumers, they turn up and shit up the place until it becomes a swamp full of them.

How do you defend your digital spaces from these people? Is there a way to safe guard against this slippery slope or is it permanent?

LSP

>The Language Server Protocol (LSP) is an open, JSON-RPC-based protocol for use between source code editors or integrated development environments (IDEs) and servers that provide programming language-specific features. The goal of the protocol is to allow programming language support to be implemented and distributed independently of any given editor or IDE.

It sounds really good on paper, convince me that it's shit and botnet.

CIA Glowniggers thread

Anons,

I think the 3letter agencies might be trying to spy on me.

This or my VPN provider is actively collaborating with them to spy on me.

Here a description what I mean:

>be anon

>connect to internet always via VPN

>it has been like this since 2011

>year 2015 or 2016

>have strange occurence where my tower pc turned itself on

>it went to the passwords page of my encrypted debian partition

>turn on screen and just look at it

>maybe someone is remoting my machine and will type passwords now

>nothing happens

>turn off after 10 minutes

>shrug it off as nothing

>FF March 16th 2019

>Christchurch happening

>8gag slows down for me

>government agencies are lurking this site

>Jim even confirmed he is collaborating their research

>nobody knows what that means

>today my internet connection gets weird

>after I make a posting on /pol/ my internet dies

>need to restart cable modem

>reconnect another VPN server, everything works

>get back to /pol/

>connection dead again

>reconnect router

>works again

So now I want to ask what the odds are that I am on some govt watchlist.

I never thought I am interesting enough for govts but maybe they now just want to have everyone who ever posted on /pol/ in a govt database and spy on them for life. Or am I just paranoid and this was all coincidence?

My VPN provider has a warrant canary and they state up until March 11th everything was fine. As this was one week ago I cannot do much with this info for todays problems. Have you similar stories that happed to you? I just wanted to shitpost and have fun browsing memes and dark humour. Why do normalcattle always ahve to ruin everything?

tor /cyber/ chatroom

me and some other anons have been talking about /cyber/ chatrooms in privacy thread. we have tried tox but it turned out pretty bad. since then ive been making an tor chatroom. im happily inviting you to try it, it looks promising to me. i want this to be /cyber/ chatroom, not mine or yours or anybodys, this is our chatroom. there are no names, nothing. i would like to improve it furthermore, im open to ALL ideas. also, when an more experienced and trustworthy anon appears, i would like to give him the whole chatroom to operate.

guide:

you should download tor if you dont have it already. it gives you very good protection and anonymity. then go to the .onion below and bookmark it when you are there so you dont lose it

http://wkg2h6gin6i745lp.onion/chat.php

why does gnu/linux not feel like real computing to me? i know how to operate linux efficiently because i just translate my knowledge from using command prompt all these years and translate lingo to its linux counterparts. but for some reason despite having more complexity it still feels like a kids toy in comparison to good ol' windows 7.

i do not say this to offend, more to see if anybody else feels this way. Microsoft is now being run by a bunch of idiots but windows 98, 2000, XP and 7 ran like absolute chads and you knew you could get work done on them and count on everything working as intended, given you weren't a mouthbreather who ran untrusted programs.

hell even win ME and vista worked great in my experience. i probably got service packs because i dont remember them being bad, most of the issues were upon release and were quickly fixed. not excuseable from MS, but it wasn't THAT BAD.

>inb4 dumb wincuck

ive been using linux for years now, but only now am i realising i should come home. all those years i could have been using a system that just werks, and prior to 10, had an infinitely better aesthetic than gayDE or footgnome. even win8 looks good if you just install classic shell and use regedit to bring everything back to control panel from the settings "app"

PNG is actually smaller filesize while being higher quality for most images uploaded on 8chan

All jpg cucks will hang.

All the time I see these stupid jpg thumbnails that 8chan is using and they are bigger filesize than if they were just png while looking like shit.

Worse yet random anons keep thinking jpg is always smaller and so they save their screencaps as these shitty jpg fuzz ridden higher filesize images.

Home Computer Repair

I am tired of attempting to find work. I have decided to become a small-buisness owner and make my own computer repair store. I wish to run this out of my own home.

I plan to make a website tomorrow. However, I am looking for some advice on this.

What is a good price schedule for computer repair? Would having customers mail their computers to me at their own cost be a deturrent? I live in a gated community and don't think I could have people physically enter my property (let alone safely). How would you personally start this business?

I'll come up with more questions eventually, but this is all I have at the moment.

FAQ

>What is cyberpunk?

Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction in a future setting, noted for its focus on "high tech and low life". It features advanced science, such as information technology and cybernetics, coupled with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order. - wikipedia

>What is /cyber/?

/cyber/ is a board on 8chan devoted to the Cyberpunk genre, setting, and ethos.

>I want to post "x". Is "x" cyberpunk?

Lurk for a bit and ask yourself if you think users here would like it.

>What are the specifications for banners and flags?

banners should be 300x100 png or gif. file limit must not exceed 750kb

flags must be 20x11 png. Flags should be clean and legible on a dark background.

Browser ENGINE Thread

/tech/ has always been known for it's in depth browser threads, but how often do we really look under the hood and discuss the rendering engines that run these browsers and do most of the actual heavy lifting of displaying a webpage? Right now there are three main browser engines:

Webkit: Made by apple. Written in OOPC. Used by Safari. Has official Gtk+ binding for ease of use by pajeets. as easy as gtk+ can be, anyway. Also has external projects making bindings in many other languages.

Blink: Made by google. Originally forked from webkit. Written in C++. Used by Google Chrome. As far as I am aware, there are no bindings for it. If you want to roll your own browser with it, you better know what you're doing.

Gecko: Made by Mozilla. Infected with Rust. Used by Firefox. It used to be good before Mozilla went full retard. Like blink, there are no bindings for Gecko.

Other engines of note:

NetSurf: Originally built for RISC OS. Programmed in ANSI C. Doesn't have HTML 5 support, and is just starting to get Javascript support.

Goanna: Forked from Gecko. Used by Palemoon. Like Gecko used to be before Quantum and the webextensions bullshit.

Servo: Mozilla's experimental engine. Extremely infected with Rust.

Beware the Social Score

What will YOU do when the Chinese Social Score comes to your nation?

Don't think for one minute that it won't. Generation Z has been raised to rate everything, from the products they buy, to the sellers they buy from, the restaurants they visit, their teachers, and even the doctors they visit. They rate their uber driver and the uber driver rates them. You have a large generation very used to the concept of rating.

The social media phenomenon has inculcated a narcissistic driven behavioural reinforcement system, by which people are nudged into group pleasing actions in return for high scores. Whether the motivation is purely rooted in vanity, or for monetary award corresponding to subscriber counts, it becomes clear that people are intimately vested in a gamification existence.

This combination of ratings and points is the underbelly for a "Social Score" system that is actually being realized in China today. Fail a test, litter on the street, say something 'politically incorrect', or perhaps staying out too late would result in demerits. Naturally, governments will issue rewards to nudge people into 'correct' behaviour. Those with low scores will be restricted from many services ranging from communications to travel; perhaps dissidents won't even have any freedom of movement! I'm sure you can imagine how such a scheme could also be tied into Universal Income.

(((They))) have primed the younger generation to accept this system, and you're kidding yourself if you think it will be met with but a handful of resistors. The question is then, how do we prevent this dystopian nightmare from emerging before it is too late?

Article 13 around the corner and #Blackout21

https://archive.is/19XAf

I was wondering what are the average /tech/no's opinion on this whole mess of a legislation. From what I've come to understand, platforms such as this very one seems to be mostly exempt (not only because they're based in America with no European counterpart, but because they fail to reach the user and revenue quotas of the bigger players), as well as most attempts at parody and pastiche seem to be somewhat protected.

That being said, we all know how much of a shitter every filtering service really is, Youtube's Content ID check being at the forefront of fucking with even uttered words.

You shouldn't have to flash an iso to a usb in order to run it as an operating system in memory.

When you press f12 and go into bios the bios gives you a drop down menu of the available devices.

In the same way if you select a usb it should ask you if you want to boot directly from the usb OR boot from a .iso file on the usb.

If you select a .iso file it should give you a list of the .iso files present the top directory of the usb. It should also give you a little menu to dive into folders to look for .iso files.

What are some good VPNs out there?

Outside not ratting users out, fast connections would be nice, and having servers available across Asia/Eu/US too.

I picked nordvpn up last month, while theirs servers are really great and I kinda like their terminal application, I decided to issue a refund because of e-mail related. Because of their poor implementation of obfuscation, their only use for me is keeping me safe from my ISP at home, not much more. I cannot recommend it to anyone because of this.

Plus, lots of stuff knows ALL their IPs and will block connections with all of them, even the most recent ones. I'm surprised they are able to make it through China's firewall.

BREAKING NEWS: Vulnerability in golang.org/x/crypto/salsa20

BREAKING NEWS: Vulnerability in golang.org/x/crypto/salsa20

>Hello gophers,

>Commit b7391e95 (https://go.googlesource.com/crypto/+/b7391e95e576cacdcdd422573063bc057239113d) fixes a vulnerability in the amd64 implementation of the golang.org/x/crypto/salsa20 and golang.org/x/crypto/salsa20/salsa packages that affects large message sizes or high counter values.

>If more than 256 GiB of keystream is generated, or if the counter otherwise grows greater than 32 bits, the amd64 implementation will first generate incorrect output, and then cycle back to previously generated keystream. Repeated keystream bytes can lead to loss of confidentiality in encryption applications, or to predictability in CSPRNG applications.

>The issue might affect uses of golang.org/x/crypto/nacl with extremely large messages.

>Architectures other than amd64 and uses that generate less than 256 GiB of keystream for a single salsa20.XORKeyStream invocation are unaffected.

>The vulnerable code is derived from the amd64-xmm5 and amd64-xmm6 implementations that are distributed with SUPERCOP, NaCl and at https://cr.yp.to/snuffle.html. The issue is present in those upstreams, but is not considered a problem by their author because of the policy at https://nacl.cr.yp.to/valid.html, and because support for counters larger than 32 bits is an incomplete experiment. We attach a patch that applies to the amd64-xmm5 and amd64-xmm6 salsa20.s files for any downstream that might want to fix this issue.

>This issue was discovered and reported by Michael McLoughlin.

>Cheers, Filippo for the Go team

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/golang-announce/tjyNcJxb2vQ/n0NRBziSCAAJ

Daniel J. Bernstein responds

>"Let's take code from the SUPERCOP benchmarking framework. Does this file supercop/crypto_stream/salsa20/e/amd64-xmm6/warning-256gb mean anything? Probably not." [Time passes] "BREAKING NEWS: We found that this implementation doesn't work after 256GB!"

tl;dr Gophers copy Salsa20 code from SUPERCOP, ignore warning that shit breaks after 256GiB

Personally I'm a free-speech absolutist and honestly I want to start something that's questionably legal. Something that really Freedom right to the very edge. I don't want it to just be a normal website and I wanted to be very Underground. I'd love to hear people's thoughts on this I'm working today but I'll be refreshing this thread every chance I get.

Are AMD FX processors botnet? What's the best x86-64 processor to get if one is looking to avoid the botnet while being able to run various legacy software?

/ftg/ fuck telstra general

right boys, what are we gonna do?

what can we do?

how can we really get under their skin?

>I'm on a contract

i honestly feel like saying fuck off, finding a new provider and not paying them a single cent more. why should they have my money when i don't agree one bit with what they're doing

>inb4 get a vpn

imagine connecting to 8chan without a vpn, are you retarded?

i am barely stopped by this, but instead pissed that legitimate websites are being banned because of a minority of snuff brainlets

There's this clearnet imageboard hosting CP, won't link because that's illlegal and don't want thread deleted.

By now the authorities should be aware of it (it's been up for more than a month I think)

So my question is, how come it has not been shut down?

Don't the authorities have the power to do that?

Author successfully DMCA's GPL'd work

was bumplocked by the shadow admins (aka the programming code) (Since I'm winning on all counts: because I am correct on the law).

Summary of this episode as this thread reaches the bump limit:

>an impersonator ("John Doe") created GitHub, then GitLab and BitBucket repos for trolling purposes

>MikeeUSA hit all three with DMCA (with the GitLab and BitBucket repos successfully taken down)

>meanwhile the impersonator opened the GitHub repo to pull requests; Mikee's butthurt as usual

>that GitHub repo's last commit was made last Thursday

And:

>>1027530

>Gitlab and Bitbucket repos are down due to DMCA notices

>There is still no evidence he hit github with a DMCA

Activating Windows XP in (((Current Year)))

How the fuck do I do it? Can't find any cracks. Won't be connecting to the internet on this.

Tried the "OobeBnk" trial period reset trick (with registry modification), and pic related is what I get.

It still gives me five days left and I can't reset the trial period no matter what I do even though I have only reset it twice since and I really don't want to reinstall everything on this machine because right now it is perfect the way it is.

GRSecurity Kernel Patch?

Is there any news on this.

Are they ever going to release another open version?

Why do they get to violate the GPL by adding an additional restrictive term (we will punish you if you redistribute the source), when their patch is a non-separable derivative work of the kernel?

why isn't this a reality /cyber/?

why only shazbot displays still in general usage in 2038?

ReactOS &gt; your opinion over it

Is it the closest thing we get to Linux imitating Windows down to detail? Or is it just as, if not more, broken than WINE?

Have you tried it, have you tested it, and have you experimented with it? All questions I want to know.

If I were to run any Windows program on it now, what are the chances it won't work?

Linux Users Going Their Own Way

It's time for linux users to go our own way. The whole "GNU"/linux ecosystem - more appropriately called the freedesktop/systemd/gnu/chromium/linux operating system.

* The red hat goons basically own the userspace now. If you want to make changes to your system you can send a patch and it wil get dropped. They essentially have 100% control, linux desktop will conform to their vision alone.

* polkit and dbus.. what do these things even do? Yet you have them on your computer most likely.

* GNU glibc is bloated and full of bugs *that GNU software depends on* and it is pro abortion.

* ls / gives about 50 things. for "historical reasons": Translations, if you try to make it simple like 4 or 5 directories all with a clear and distinct purpose every piece of software in existence would break because it's all badly written.

* every single programming language has its own fucking package manage that fights against all the other package managers. Is this a joke? Why are programmers, supposedly smart people, allowing this to happen?

* You have all this FUCKING GARBAGE that is overcomplicated and nobody likes like: systemd, polkit, dbus, gsettings XML schemas. None of this stuff makes sense, the documentation is unhelpful and the systems themselves violate standard UNIX design ideas - I wouldn't have a problem with that if they had actually improved on things.

* The web browser is about 80% of the linux desktop experience now. And while it's technically free software it's nearly monopolized (firefox is digging its own grave) and it's basically impossible to make changes to. lets be honest here.

* The shell's fucked. Try writing a shell script that correctly processes a list of files that might have spaces on tabs in the names. You can do it if you study but everything takes work when it should be simple. Programming with lists of strings shouldn't be so tricky.

* The core sets of software has so much historical baggage that could be cleared away. Did you know ./configure tests if your system uses EBCDIC instead of ASCII? configure performs millions of checks, yet the software usually doesn't work either way.

How about a simple init system that doesn't reimplement half UNIX in a buggy way?

It's time for linux users to go our own way, let's have a simple operating system based on clear understand principles with man pages that explain everything you need to know. There's so much more that could be said but I'm sure you have your own complaints too.

IMEI repair

Hello tech friends

Disclaimer: I am not a thief, I am an idiot that bought a phone on craigslist

I bought a phone off of craigslist that wasn't paid off and is tied to a sprint account that is past due. The IMEI will eventually be blacklisted, although it is not at the moment.

I paid $200 bucks for this Samsung galaxy s8 active and would really hate for this thing to be a damn paperweight.

Can anyone lead me in the right direction?

So far I'm aware of a few options

octobox plus, z3x box, swapping out the board with a new one, paying for a third party service (which I am willing to do if reputable and offers a guarantee) or lastly I was told that if I root the phone there's a tool that's called something along the lines of IMEI_decode and to flash the bin file it spits out into the boot rom.

Please help lol

Political Correctness in Science and Academy

The enforcement of political correctness and censorship is also present in science and academia, even more than in the popular fields of politics. Scientific discoveries that threaten the rule of plutocracy that could empower the population are routinely suppressed and exorcised.

All true, but politically incorrect scientific discoveries pass through five stages:

First, they are ignored.

Second, they are ridiculed.

Third, they are debunked with false arguments, buried, and violently opposed.

Fourth, they are plagiarised and stolen by authority bullies.

Fifth, they are accepted as being self-evident, attributed to a plagiarist.

System path

Pic unrelated i wonder is it good practice to put all of your command line tools and your system path on windows 10 Or is it better to just leave everything in a folder and cd into that directory Because I got sick and tired of doing that and Just created a folder on C:\ i was using YouTube down loader clamav as well as steghide and ffmpeg Of course clamav is in its own Separate folder And at this point I'm actually getting tired of playing around with my system paths And just install Linux
