>ITT: Tales of tech laziness

I accidentally locked myself out of remote root access to my server, and I'm too lazy to walk ten steps over to fix it.

Growing to hate technology

As I kid I fucking loved technology, it was always improving and we were seeing massive leaps in what machines were capable of doing. We went from the Atari 2600 all the way up to the PS2 and then everything just seemed to stagnate. Technology no longer improved as much as it just sort of polished things a bit better.

This even happened with the internet where we kept seeing improvements and new ways to use it until we hit social media and immediately it all stagnated and turned to shit on the spot. Instead of having cool games to play on it the internet is now watching someone else replay the same old game over and over or seeing some cam whore play the latest bland as fuck skinner box.

It went from being an exciting thing to explore and see all these awesome new websites to asking myself which company I want to spy on me for an hour. I have super high speed internet and can download a gig in less than 60 seconds... and then the only porn being offered is trannies, interracial or cuckolding. What's even the point of that?

I understand as people get older they start to see newer tech as something they can't understand but that isn't the problem here. It's not that the tech is not understandable, it's that it's devoid of any soul or purpose. There's no excitement, nothing new and interesting. The most interesting thing I've found lately is Neocities which is little more than a Geocities parody. It's so bad that parodying the bad stuff is now one of the exceptional highs.

Any one else just grown to utterly despise technology but it's so inbuilt into who they are there's no real way to disconnect from it without completely restructuring their lives?

The Tor Illusion

Is this crap supposed to "protect your anonymity" ? The fact is, you can't use it almost anywhere. It's "attention required" after "attention required". Some websites don't even provide that, but inexplicably ban your IP. Most forums won't allow you to register. And even here, I can't post with Tor since the captcha just keeps appearing...

Is Tor an illusion?

Dvorak keyboards

Anyone here using Dvorak instead of QWERTY? I'm considering switching because I've heard it helps with pain related to carpal tunnel. Wondering if that's just a meme or if it's just marketing. Did your WPM go up after adjusting to the new layout? How easy is it to go back and forths between QWERTY and other layouts once you learn them?

The only reason I didn't attempt making the switch years ago was constantly using multiple machines that I didn't have full control over. Now I'm old and my wrists have totally gone to hell. I get pain and numbness after a few minutes of constant typing which is starting to slow me down and causing me a lot of concern. I'm actually having to manage the pain with opioids now to get through my daily work loads.

Online Spyware Watchdog

Hi /tech/, it's been a while since the last thread about this project, so I thought I would make a new thread because I've been more active in editing the website, and I have more free time now.

The Online Spyware Watchdog is a website I have been working on, on and off for a while, you can visit it here:

https://spyware.neocities.org/

This is a website that is supposed to be a resource for learning about spyware- software that collects information about its users. It basically exists right now as a collection of articles that describe specific software, assigns it a "Spyware Score", and then has a detailed explanation of how that software spies on you. The idea of the website is that it's a living document, and that new articles and changes to existing articles are contributed to the website over e-mail. So, it's supposed to be a place on the internet that consolidates all the information about how a certain program is spying on you into one article- you'll notice that if you want to find out all of the ways that a program like Discord spies on you, the information is spread out across the privacy policy and several threads and forum posts that explain other spyware features that the privacy policy doesn't mention. This website is supposed to have a synopsis of all of that information so that people can be more aware of it.

Lately, the website has been getting a lot of traffic, a lot more than it was getting earlier, I think this is because a few weeks ago RMS created a page about why Discord is bad on his website linking to an article on the website: https://stallman.org/discord.html And then there was the controversy about Discord among /pol/ users which happened more recently which probably drove a lot of traffic to the site as well. The website has had almost 40k total hits when i'm writing this. So since a lot of people are looking at the site, I thought I would fix it up a little (I've been working on it more and adding new articles lately) and make a new thread for it.

You can read my earlier thread about this project here:

Staying anonymous online

How can one stay anonymous while online? It's a simple question, but trying to find the answer has led me down a real rabbit hole. Could someone give me the redpill on protecting my identity when online?

Which Linux Distro is the best for privacy and security?

How much would it cost to hire someone to make a new addon/xul for waterfox? The reason that I am asking is that I want two particular addons: tabgroup manager revived https://bitbucket.org/tabgroupsmanager/tabgroupsmanager/downloads/ and session manager https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/ to work for the newest version of waterfox; however, do not think that that they are willing to update as it will not work with the newer firefox. Therefore I see no choice to get a person to make a add on similar to tabgroup manager revived.

LibbieOS - Libbie The Free Virtual Assistant

this idea of mine has been floating around for a while, I have doubts on how well this will be received but I'll be glad if you guys like it.

.

Premise

LibbieOS, AKA "Libbie - The Free Virtual Assistant", is a linux distro designed to work as a free alternative to Siri/Cortana/Alexa. No need to worry about government snoops or corporate stooges watching you at every turn, Libbie does what you ask of her and doesn't need to hide anything from you!

Purpose

The purpose of this distro is to provide a small operating system for embedded devices to function as a free replacement to Alexa. LibbieOS has a series of scripts that can be inputted through voice commands or text terminals to do various functions for whatever you want.

LibbieOS is based on Gentoo Linux, and can be tailored for your needs the way you want it to be.

Example Commands


Libbie
run <Program>
play_music
volume <number or command>
get_the_weather
search "<query>"
remind_me_about <date> <time>
set_alarm_for <date> <time>
read_mail
help <subject>
turn_off_microphone
<etc>

Author's Notes

I have far too many neat ideas, too little time, and burn out on motivation. Besides, this idea was way too fun to keep holed up in my head, and I wanted to share this with you guys.

by the way, "normal" is relative.

tl;dr for Beginners

>decentralized P2P network

>like torrenting, but instead of getting a .torrent file or magnet link that shares a pre-set group of files, you get a hash of the files which is searched for in the network and served automatically

>you can add files to the entire network with one line in the CLI or a drag-and-drop into the web interface

>HTTP gateways let you download any hash through your browser without running IPFS

>can stream video files in mpv or VLC (though it's not recommended unless the file has a lot of seeds)

How it Works

When you add a file, the files are cryptographically hashed and a merkle tree is created. These hashes are announced by the IPFS client to the nodes in the network. (The IPFS team often describes the network as a "Merkle forest.") Any user can request one of these hashes and the nodes set up peer connections automatically. If two users share the same file then both of them can seed it to a third person requesting the hash, as opposed to .torrent files/magnets which require both seeders use the same file.

FAQ

>Is it safe?

It's about as safe as a torrent right now, ignoring the relative obscurity bonus. They are working on integration with TOR and I2P. Check out libp2p if you're curious.

>Is it fast?

Finding a seeder can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. It's slowly improving but still requires a fair bit of optimization work. Once the download starts, it's as fast as the peers can offer, just like a torrent.

>Is it a meme?

You be the judge.

It has implementations in Go (meant for desktop integration) and Javascript (meant for browser/server integration) in active development that are functional right now, it has a bunch of side projects that build on it, and it divides important parts of its development (IPLD, libp2p, etc) into separate projects that allow for drop-in support for many existing technologies.

On the other hand, it's still alpha software with a small userbase and has poor network performance.

Websites of interest

https://ipfs.io/ipfs/

Official IPFS HTTP gateway. Slap this in front of a hash and it will download a file from the network. Be warned that this gateway is slower than using the client and accepts DMCAs.

http://glop.me/

Pomf clone that utilizes IPFS. Currently 10MB limit.

Also hosts a gateway at gateway.glop.me which doesn't have any DMCA requests as far as I can tell.

/ipfs/QmP7LM9yHgVivJoUs48oqe2bmMbaYccGUcadhq8ptZFpcD/links/index.html

IPFS index, has some links (add ipfs.io/ before to access without installing IPFS)

Why is it that people always discuss what killed the internet but never bring up the DMCA?

I have 1000 projects, tasks, plans.

How to manage them, prioritize them, plan them for specific simple tasks and actions?

How to plan life and projects into long-term future and execute and finish them?

Also, how to force myself to do what is most important for now, not what is easiest and most pleasurable? what drugs pills or system would force me to that? how to become terminator?

and how to get a lot of energy speed and hypomania so I can do a lot of tasks fast? How to explode?

FUCKING RADIOS, HOW DO THEY WORK?

Let's talk about radio technology, /tech/. What would be a good radio frequency for point-to-point transmission of data without needing to go through the FCC? My guess would be the unlicensed microwave frequencies, but that's not good for transmitting through weather. Is there something near AM that could use the magnetic portion of a radio wave to transmit digital data legally like how AM does? The idea of a high-gain loop antenna on top of a pole for sending/receiving digital data seems intriguing.

Have any of you guys built your own radios? If so, what kit did you use and how good was it?

Does increasing antenna length or size do anything to affect the gain of said antenna or is it more complicated than just adding more metal?

What amplification kits exist that could be used for boosting signals coming from an antenna?

Help a gay retard learn networking

Networking and internet are my least favourite subjects in computer science and I'm shit at both of them. How should I approach these subjects (recommended books/lectures)?

web browsing and chans are fundamentally broken

this is how it looks for me today:

1. open web browser

2. open chans and websites

3. open a lot of tabs

4. start reading chan tabs and answering in them

5. leave them open because more replies can come, also I plan to save tab to PC when it's done. or write some text on my PC after reading that tab

6. go sleep

7. reply to tabs from previous day & open more tabs

8. repeat, repeat, until I end with thousands of tabs

9. ???

I do not understand what I should do with all of chan and website tabs. And when. Web browsing is broken.

I cannot close them because they can get replies, or I want to save them, or do some follow up.

follow up - for example if I read that jews are evil, a follow up would be to kill them or plan to kill them, or write some text related to this.

Posting on 8chan nowadays...

OK so I want to use Tor to post on /b/.

<Surprise, bare exit nodes are detected and blocked "for security reasons". Bullshit. I bet a direct connection from my bare IP wouldn't be blocked "for security reasons". But OK, let's use the onion. I can handle text only.

<Surprise, Tor posting blocked on /b/ because BO is a fag!

Actually, no surprise there. OK then how about Tor+webproxy?

<The DNSBLS captcha either reloads forever, or if it doesn't you get a 400 Bad Request when trying to upload anything.

Am I supposed to mess with the referrer and spoof it? If yes, what to spoof it to? I was thinking post.php but it doesn't work. (I'm brainlet.)

Also I noticed some mysterious "tor" cookie is being set for 8ch.net, looks like a tracking cookie. That's cute.

So how can I keep posting anonymously here? Normally Kproxy works fine but some absolute retard found it and spammed CP on /vichan/, getting all kproxy.com IP's banned site wide on all boards.

I don't even care about the politics behind intentionally restricting Tor and proxy users anymore. If 4chan does it, 8chan and Mewch might as well do it too I suppose. In a few years the blocking will be absolute but I'll be damned if I stick around and put up with this anti anonymity bullshit. I just want to post my weekly 3DPD Umaru, because it's Friday, lol.

Google warns Android might not remain free because of EU decision

Google warns Android might not remain free because of EU decision

<An unlikely warning

<By Tom Warren @tomwarren Jul 18, 2018, 8:54am EDT

https://archive.fo/z5HxF https://www.theverge.com/2018/7/18/17585396/google-android-eu-fine-response

<The EU’s decision to force Google to unbundle its Chrome and search apps from Android[1] may have some implications for the future of Android’s free business model. In a blog post defending Google’s decision[2] to bundle search and Chrome apps on Android, Google CEO Sundar Pichai outlines the company’s response to the EU’s $5 billion fine[1]. Pichai highlights the fact a typical Android user will “install around 50 apps themselves” and can easily remove preinstalled apps. But if Google is prevented from bundling its own apps, that will upset the Android ecosystem.

<“If phone makers and mobile network operators couldn’t include our apps on their wide range of devices, it would upset the balance of the Android ecosystem,” explains Pichai, carefully avoiding the fact that phone makers will no longer be forced to bundle these apps but can still choose to do so. Pichai then hints that the free Android business model has relied on this app bundling. “So far, the Android business model has meant that we haven’t had to charge phone makers for our technology, or depend on a tightly controlled distribution model,” says Pichai. “But we are concerned that today’s decision will upset the careful balance that we have struck with Android, and that it sends a troubling signal in favor of proprietary systems over open platforms.”

<Pichai’s subtle talk of a “careful balance” of the Android business model will be seen as a warning shot to consumers, phone makers, and the European Commission. The EU has made no suggestions on exactly how Google should solve its app bundling violations. But it’s clear that if phone makers can bundle their own browsers instead of Chrome and point search queries toward rivals, then that could have implications for Google’s mobile ad revenue, which constitutes more than 50 percent[3] of the company’s net digital ad revenue.

<Google is warning that its Android business model could now change, and that may mean the company will need to consider licensing Android to phone makers. It’s an unlikely scenario that relies on consumers not seeking out Chrome or Google search on Android after Google’s unbundling. Given Google’s dominance in search and browsers and the popularity of its many web services, Pichai’s warning looks more like a bluff to court popular opinion than a genuine threat that Android will no longer be free.

tl;dr: Google pretends to be the victim after being fined for abusing its monopoly over Android phones

Announcing Rust 1.24

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.

The illusion of meritocracy in programming

Code speaks for itself, right? How does it relate to your biological sex, expressed gender, sexual orientation or race?

I'm tired of Mozilla and other companies buying into the diversity meme. It makes me sick. I have never looked at anyone who has a genuine interest in computers and programming as inferior to me. So why push the anti white men agenda?

Other /cyber/ communities on the internet?

I've been lookin for some good ones to shitpost in and/or seriously talk about cyberpunk stuff for a while now. I was desperate enough to join reddit's r/cyberpunk/ and that place is full of neomarxists and idiots, plus anyone who questions the cyberpunkness of a picture of a regular city street is met with hostility. Cancer and soykaf everywhere.

Where can I go for active cyberpunk discussion in between shifts at my shitty kitchen job?

End of Codec Wars?

Can AV1 deliver and together with FLAC and Opus make codec fights history? If AV1 is as good as they promise, that is when free royalty free codecs are best at everything: lossy and lossless audio, and then with AV1 video. There should be no reason to use anything else in my books. Mux those in MKV or its imouto format WEBM, both free as well.

Even typically tech advanced anime scene is to this day sticking usually with h.264 + aac combo. Will they be the first to switch to AV1+Opus? They skipped VP9+Opus combo for some reason.

GOOGLE OWNS ME

I don't know how to get out...

I wanted to get out of the Google Ecosystem, but its nearly impossible...

I began to think of replacements for everything:

Gmail? Outlook!

YouTube? I'll just download subscribed videos automatically.

GDrive? OneDrive (dropbox too small)

Chrome? Palemoon

Google Music? ...Spotify?

Google Books? Kindle maybe...

Google Search? DuckDuckGo I guess...

Android? Uh...fuck.

Should I bother? Maybe the ecosystem is better and more convenient for me anyway? Help /g/entoomen

Alternative browsers?

Why the browsers performance have been shit by the past year or so?

They used to work just fine.

The moment i install Firefox (Clean) performance goes to ground same for Chrome.

In a poorly optimized kind of way. Also adblockers just won't work.

Opera works like silk but compatibility is very low unless i install the chrome hack.

As you can see i'm a /g/ newfag.

What do anons think about test driven development?

CyberPunk Wallpaper

so, there is no wallpaper thread ?

had to fix that

BSD thread?

Please explain this linux atheist why people recommend DragonflyBSD over FreeBSD (other than the SJWism), and where OpenBSD and NetBSD come in. I'm using VMs right now, but I actually have a toaster computer I'm looking to turn into a generic home server and I want to see if a BSD would suit me more than linux.

I played with OpenBSD for 2 days in a VM, it was pretty nice. I just installed every package set and booted it. FVWM was a pretty shitty and clunky WM, but I could easily learn how to install a different WM/DE and replace FVWM with something else from the man pages alone. I ended up installing XFCE4, firefox and random desktop programs to see how they worked. I noticed the single core VM I was running it in was still responsive even when hammering the CPU, whereas I've ran linux on single core PCs this decade and whenever there was too much CPU load even a pure commandline system would go unresponsive. OpenBSD felt like everything was more integrated and I was happy with every default package. I think every linux user has this list of software they want to avoid because of bad experiences and they often have to actively replace them when installing just about any distro. I know that's my case, but everything I tried that was default or exclusive to OpenBSD felt good enough for me. I didn't have any qualms with any of the OpenBSD software I tried but I didn't try everything. The partition scheme looked weird though, there were a trillion partitions and I couldn't understand why things were like that. I didn't bother learning it either because I was just installing on a VM, but that would be something to look into if I end up having an OpenBSD-based home server.

I want to avoid FreeBSD because of its SJW faggotry, and I hear people say DragonflyBSD is the alternative to it so now I'm downloading DragonflyBSD.

I'm trying NetBSD after and I have this feeling it's somehow worse than the others but might be the only choice on some hardware, I haven't tried it but nobody has given me a reason to use it on a x86 machine, all I hear is "yeah NetBSD runs on everything!".

What are the opinions of /tech/ anons?

What are some code comments that you guys have found that legitimately made you smile? I found pic related in some company software today and I'm sure it's going to be deleted by [REDACTED] before it can be allowed to brighten any more days, but hey, it was fun while it lasted.

Adblockers

>Ad cancer becomes a horribly intrusive problem all across the web

>Adblockers come along and completely cuck webowners out of ad revenue for committing such transgressions

>instead of changing their practices they double down and implement anti-adblock procedures, locking users out of certain features and in some cases outright banning people

>adblock users just write scrips and implement filters to block those too

WHEN WILL THEY LEARN??

Let's have a thread to talk about how to purge this horrid cancer from the web.

Productive VR user interfaces

As mentioned in the cyber feel thread, how about we discuss how to properly use VR.

Right now, what we have is virtual monitors in a 3D environment. It's the most basic user interface inspired by the concept we've been using for decades.

It doesn't do the possibilities justice though. It's still limiting yourself to monitors, just more of them in a beach house, mountain cabin or whatever you design.

Let's discuss how you could actually "dive in". Post a conventional program (file manager, text processor, web browser, IDE, accounting applications, online banking, etc.) and how you could take advantage of VR. After all, it's just representing 1s and 0s, right?

Multiple concepts for a single program and feedback welcome.

Retroshare thread!

Retroshare is a p2p program providing email, chat rooms, file sharing, forums, channels, over fully encrypted tunnels. It can replace most things you need to do online. Find it at http://retroshare.net/ or through your distributions package manager. Retroshare has gotten many new features recently.

Retroshare supports full hidden service mode. When you get to the profile creation popup don't use the default. Instead click the advanced button and then configure your tor hidden service. This adds another layer of encryption and provides anonymity. We have a chatroom on retroshare right now. Come try it out!

So...how do you guys communicate?

I'm out of the loop. Tox, Matrix, Signal, XMPP, IRC?

gib me journals or scientific evidence of galantamine giving more vivid dreams and better recall of dreams.

I need proofs so my shrink will gib me galantamine, he agreed dreaming is a good therapy and will look at the info i give him.

How do you cope with your internet footprint?

I have dozens of account from different websites and i write all of my accounts to notebook with password-name-e mail etc. And now i feeling like shit cause i am literally swiming in botnet and i think i should clean some of them but i cant delete some accounts and i dont know where to start??

What is with the move to softer language in error screens? It seems like a move to make things more 'user friendly', or maybe it's a shift in developer attitudes.

Based Browser Introduces Tor Tabs

>The feature, first reported by CNET a year ago and officially called private tabs with Tor, is built into Brave 0.23. The official Brave 1.0 is due to ship this year, but 2.8 million people already use the browser monthly, Eich said. To use the new feature, you can either select "New Private Tab with Tor" from the file menu or flip on the Tor switch once you've opened a new private tab. Using Tor on one tab doesn't affect other ordinary or private tabs.

>"Studies show that users expect private tabs prevent things like ISPs tracking them or other people on Wi-Fi tracking them," but in fact ordinary private tabs don't, Zhu said. "Tor private tabs bring private tabs much closer to what the user expects private tabs to do."

<Mozilla says it's too early to know when the project will bear fruit. But Brave's Tor support is here now -- although in a testing stage to try to find problems and patch known privacy leaks compared to Tor's better-tested browser.

Laughing at Firecucks right now.

Object Oriented Programming is fucking retarded

OOP is retardedly complex and difficult to learn, and doesn't make yourr programming experience more simple nor more powerful. Why the fuck is it necessary?

Can you guys help me choosing my future field? Which field is better in the long term? computer science or health?and why should I choose cs?
