In a desperate attempt to get this /tech/ board going, Lets have a "Questions That Don't Deserve their own thread" thread. I'll try to answer anything I can, and I'm sure there are other people here with more know-how than me, who can help as well. Conveniently, That leads to the first question:

Does anyone here have any experience with the transmission-daemon? I've gotten everything set-up for my local server, but I'd like to move all of my currently running torrents to the daemon without adding each torrent file or magnet individually. Is there any way to do this? or a place where currently running torrents are stored?

I use the one on the right, it doesn't require non-free software, headless at least. You can also use it to flash Libreboot too.

Use https://linux-sunxi.org/Main_Page to read more about Allwinner boards.

I use the OLinuXino A20 Micro, with an USB wifi adapter (ath9k_htc driver), which is supported by Debian https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/Allwinner
I don't know about touchscreen and X but it apparently can be done https://www.olimex.com/wiki/How_to_use_15_inch_touchscreens.

If you care you can completely encrypt disk and boot using https://linux-sunxi.org/FEL/USBBoot, which needs another computer to store your initrd and vmlinuz or keep an unencrypted /boot.

I would upgrade to the A64 or A33 but they have no SATA port. Also all of them seem to be unnafected by spectre and meltdown and use a Mali GPU instead of a PowerVR one.

Oh, and be sure to get the UART adapter.

Someone just gave me an Ipad Air(1st gen Wifi model) and asked me to get rid of the code lock on it, after a bit of research I figured out that my only three options were replacing a memory chip on the board to change the serial number, buy a new logic board with that isn't locked to an iCloud account or use a DNS bypass during activation but that has less functionality for use.

Does anyone know where the jailbreaking community for Apple devices is on the net? Or any experience and advice to give me on this topic?

Depends on what kind of pdfs really, if it's mostly black and white text then find a cheap ereader that you can root and install a decent OS on it.

Otherwise I'd go with an older phablet that can run /e/ or LineageOS.

a lineageos reskin which the makers pretend they have done from the ground up, like all these custom roms.

Has IPFS made any progress in the last 6 months or are they still dragging their feet?
Isn't LineageOS just a reskin of CyanogenMod then? And Replicant can be considered the same with non free code removed.

As long as they host their own packages it should be considered similar to the distro situation in the GNU/Linux world. The only reason why I'd recommend anything but official Android is to use a pure version of mPDF without any bloat in the OS.

Im actually waiting for that shit to launch and see if it gets the nufsf seal of approval, also the pinetab and pinephone is coming out, wonder how shitty they are going to be.
It's clearly stated that the wifi doesn't work on their page and they have links to libre wifi adapters that you can plug in through the USB port. With one that's small enough and by soldering a micro USB port on it you'd have a decent solution.

Or you can just reinstall it with the nonfree wifi code included. I was going to go with Replicant but decided against it when I saw how much trouble that was going to be, also they don't support the Lima driver for the Mali GPU yet so it's doing software rendering.

It is available for LineageOS but it's not currently supported as it's so old.
In fact all that Replicant is the FSF taking LineageOS and removing nonfree code.
Digital Foundry makes a good case for going back to CRT monitors for gaming. I personally want one for my old PS2 because PS2 games look like shit on LCDs.

Excuse the nigger in the video but the nignog is right.
They're misguided. What they want is any small monitor with low resolution and high refresh rate. The only monitor they could find though was a CRT. All small, low-res monitors are shitty cheap ones with ghosting and muted colors and all monitors with a high refresh rate are huge 4K LCDs where you can choose to either see stretched pixels or no rendering details.

PS2 games look like shit regardless. The best a CRT can do is fuel your nostalgia so you accept that it all looks like crap. Be sure to get an old 15" TV.
Or trash your PS2 and play on PCSX2 instead. It's a tradeoff between "can't see shit" and "can see it's shit".
They aren't wrong. My high refresh rate LCD is really good but even one of my cheapo CRTs will always beat it when it comes to blacks, blur, and refresh rates. I wish they'd stop telling normalfags about CRTs because the prices just keep going up and up with so many of them jumping on the retro bandwagon. The only saving grace is maybe the fad will get enough normalfags behind it that someone will start producing new CRTs again. Old CRTs are in short supply now and they all have a limited life span. At some point there won't be any parts around to keep current ones going.

I wish there were more 16:10 CRTs in circulation. I haven't been able to source one locally and I'm not going to pay to have something like that shipped in. Right now I have a bunch of CRT monitors I saved from the trash. I keep a 24 inch CRT hooked up to my main PC as an extra monitor. It's nice to have it in the mix for when I run older games. I'm trying to find something CRT around the same size to mount above it right now.
>The only saving grace is maybe the fad will get enough normalfags behind it that someone will start producing new CRTs again.
We can dream anon, but we both know this isn't happening why even live anymore
I apologize in advance for bothering you with a troubleshooting inquiry, but it's just this shit makes zero sense to me. It's a problem with my internet connection that so far I have no idea where it's coming from and no clue as to how to deal with it. Here's what I have observed in the few days I've been dealing with it:
>My connection peters out almost instantly, except not quite. To elaborate, I can't access any new webpages through my browser except sometimes Google and YouTube (I tested it)
>signal strength display shows no problems, appears "Limited" very infrequently
>resetting my router and flushing the DNS hasn't yielded results besides brief moments of false hope
>According to my browser it's a time-out error, though sometimes it says it can't resolve DNS
>For some reason I can't fathom, it has a more or less specific schedule. My connection always shits the bed at around 7 pm and comes back at around midnight. This is by far the most baffling thing about it.
What do you think the problem might be? What can I do to find the root of the problem and solve it once and for all?
Does it work just fine over a wired ethernet connection?
What does your the web interface of your router say about your internet connection? Have you made sure the connection itself works?
If so, what does it say about the dns?
God damn it I forgot to mention that, but yes. It works like a charm.

Zero problem on the former, so it should work on paper. As for the latter, I suspect it's a DNS issue but I'm not sure where to look.
Maybe try wireshark and see if the DNS requests get a response, or TCP connections for that matter.

If it's a DNS issue in your router, you should get results from using a VPN, using an alternate DNS provider like jewgle's or using tor.
Signal strength is not the only relevant measurement, the noise floor also affect throughput but WLAN adapters usually cannot measure the noise floor.
So it is possible that some other device that is only being used in that time interval is adding noise enough to make your connection unusable. Considering the time, it's likely a neighbor using another wireless network after work. Does the affected time change on weekends?
Try scanning for other networks then changing your channel to something far away from the other networks. Also try moving your WAP.
The fact that he can access google/youtube implies it might be on the ISP's end. 7pm-midnight would be prime time for most locations since people are off work and watching streaming services. Google keeps servers at most ISPs that mirror their content. If he can access youtube and google but nothing else it probably means he's only able to access content mirrored locally at the ISP and nothing is going beyond that hop.

Next time it does this try running a trace route or pinging something that isn't a google server and see what happens.
Could also try a full factory reset of the router. And do a network scan of surrounding networks and choose an unused channel.
Seagate or Western Digital?
Whatever is cheaper.

In those cases I usually just type the title or write something else entirely because Going Bananas with Burritos.pdf will not help me when I want to find that paper on van Laarhoven lenses.

Too bad extracting the title with a browser extension won't work half the time either, because the actual document title is often Microsoft Word or empty.
At least sometimes copying stuff without the first and last letter works.

I've been running only Linux (Debian) for a while now, but I've got a spare hard drive kicking around and I've been thinking I'll install Win7 on it for times when Wine isn't working out.
A while ago I had been set up to dual boot between Windows and Linux, but that was starting with a Windows install and adding Linux on top. I've heard it takes some fiddling to get things working in the other direction, and on top of that I don't know what catches there might be for having it on a different drive. Should I just physically unplug all my drives except the one I'm installing to, install, reconnect the drives, and set boot priority in UEFI/BIOS? Do I need to do anything with grub?

Pardon my ignorance needing to ask such a basic question. I've never actually installed Windows before at all, never mind in a dual boot setup.
every successful multiboot i've ever managed 10+by now i imagine starts with installing Wangblows first, as it stomps anything else on the box.
>I've heard it takes some fiddling to get things working in the other direction
If some expert knows a different way, let them enlighten us all. This is what's worked for me repeatedly.
>as it stomps anything else on the box.
That's what I gathered, which is why my thought was that I should install it on a separate drive and leave the others all physically disconnected from everything, so even the bootloader can't possibly be touched.
My concern is whether it might still mess with anything once I plug those drives back in afterwards.
>My concern is whether it might still mess with anything once I plug those drives back in afterwards.
by 'it' i'm assuming you mean the copy of wangblows. it will certainly scan and catalog (and very likely send all the hashes back up to the mothership for upload to the 5-eyes (((agencies)))). but i can't recall 'it' actually damaging anything on an external. yes, unplugging is a good idea during all installations, even the linux ones anon.
Only on MBR. Windows assumes normal EFI boot on a GPT formatted drive and you can install OS in any order you choose.

t. installed Linux first on GPT, works on my machine
Spoonfeed us a walkthrough?
Just keep in mind that the common Windows 7 loader everyone uses to activate it doesn't work if you install it in UEFI mode.
Just set up the partitions properly when installing your first system. Windows will to it automatically, obviously. If it's Linux, you can just let the distro autopartition for UEFI if it can. I had some trouble doing it manually at first, because you have to have a small unallocated sector at the very start of the drive and then a correctly formatted EFI partition right after. When the first OS is in place, even if you install Windows afterwards it won't erase your boot sector and will instead just add its own option alongside. Worst case scenario, you have to launch a system off USB and run grub-update once.

Didn't know that. Are you talking about Daz Loader?
How would you handle encryption on a linux home NAS? It would be best if it worked per user so the user's container will be mounted on access and dismounted when the user disconnects from the NAS. I imagine this to be a pain in the ass for backups and copy on write, it would probably hard or impossible to incrementally backup without decrypting everything in the process.
if i download shit from yt with youtube-dl can i get jewed?
define (((get jewed))). it's simply a downloader. the developer keeps it agile to constantly stay up to date with jewgle's intentional kikery intended to defeat it, but otherwise it's basically just a means to download the file to your machine. you do exactly the same when you watch a video on kiketube.
when i watch videos on yt there are ads and (((scripts))), do youtube-dl run these scripts and give up my privacy/anonymity? can it leak my location if i donwload over tor?>>485
i don't know the intricacies of all the hoops youtube-dl has to jump through today to retrieve a kiketube video anon. but one thing i feel i can guarantee you is that downloading a video using youtube-dl is more secure and private than doing so in a browswer. and sure, you should be able to torify ytdl connections, why not?
One other thing. Using youtube-dl with invidious at least puts one more layer between you and (((Jewgle))) anon.
There are options to use proxies built into youtube-dl. Very useful for archiving in case youtube cuts you off for sucking up too much of their bandwidth or for getting around region blocking.

I haven't watched anything on the youtube site in years thanks to my media players being able to stream their videos and youtube-dl letting me batch download everything I want and watch while offline.

No it doesn't as the video is still hosted on youtube's servers. All youtube-dl does is look at the video ID in the URL so using invidious makes no difference at all. If that site wasn't a placebo Google would have shut them out of using their service by now like they did with NicoNico awhile back.
i usually use the --proxy option but it doesn't work with invidious .onion address, i feel like it's somehow bypassing the proxy.

Btw, invidious got hacked recently.
youtube-dl cannot execute any Javascript because it has no interpreter for it. You can open up the python file from your install and look. What it does is parses the HTML page you get from opening the video URL and gets video information from its tags. In the specific case of Youtube, it also looks for specific <script> areas and uses regex to get media URLs from it. Last time I checked, this was all it did.
PhantomJS is a optional dependency, in some cases it might execute something. But yeah, i should take a look on the source even though it looks like gibberish for me
I see. I stand corrected anons.
>invidious got hacked recently

To put it plainly, I'm a paranoid fuck and have reason to suspect that my computer's being or has been tampered with while I'm away. I'm looking for ways to detect this as well as ways to prevent it. Currently just have a bogstandard password on it, but I'm looking to lock it down as much as possible.

I guess this extends to making sure my online activities can't be viewed by those also connected to the network if at all possible, because while they're my friends that doesn't essentially mean I have 100% faith in them nor have I any reason to.

Are there any good, lightweight web browsers for Linux Mint? I have a 1GB machine that I'd like to use to browse some websites, doesn't matter if they look like shit so long as they actually load.
Just try different ones anon and see what you like. I'd say have a look at this one:

BTW, Mint is a good platform, I like it. But tbh it's not really very lightweight for a small box. I think if you tried something like Manjaro using XFCE instead you'd have a smoother experience.
log your network activity using tcpdump or something. You learn that there are things that can't be unseen by the network. The best you can do is encrypt everything.

Try some headless browser, there are lots of them like >>522

my question is pretty simple, how can DNS cause a error 502? it resolves but cause this error, why?
If the domain name is resolved into an address, then the DNS didn't generate any error.
502 is likely the HTTP error code and any code starting with 5 is a server error.
NetSurf (http://www.netsurf-browser.org/) or lynx/links? Or perhaps Gnu/Emacs?
i thought that too, but the weidest thing is that the only way i found to get rid of this error was changing DNS servers.
Maybe the previous DNS server was redirecting you to a different address than the expected one.
It's nothing strange for this to happen. Probably it was caused by some errors during the propagation of the updated record or the internal cache misbehaved somehow.
probably, now its fixed, thx anyways

If you're on a new machine as in, one with recent hardware then Win7 is certain to encounter driver issues what with it being less than 4 months from EOL, best install gentoo or some other free as in freedom operating system and have Wangblows run in a VM with GPU passthrough if it's really needed.
yeah because gentoo won't have any driver issues or insane config troubleshooting
Why are you trying to push gentoo on to newbies? Do you want him to hate you or something? Why would you do such a thing?
Get Debian, Arch or Ubuntu and then de-bloat those. Join a few chat places (IRC, retroshare, zeronet forums, whatever) that are made to help new linux users and go from there.

Is there a program that can compare images from two different folders/drives and tell you if there are any files with the same name but are actually different images?
That would be pretty easy to do yourself, you could even check if the file is same as well and delete the duplicate.

First delete duplicates, rmlint is handy, then make a script to compare filenames, if they are equal append an string to the filename, when done just `ls *string-appended*`.

No, the Manjaro developers are incompetent, and it doesn't make sense to grab the packages from a rolling-release distro when you are building a stable distro (this practice leads inevitably to delayed upgrades.)
Also, Arch (or the AUR) isn't a killer feature. And actually, n00bs shouldn't even use AUR as the AUR "packages" are just shell scripts (in other words, the packages basically gets access to your computer because, if you are new to Gnu/Linux, then it's very unlikely that you understand shell scripts.)

>I'm not really comfortable switching to linux right away
It's better to dual-boot windows and Linux. You can try Linux with Virtual Box without touching your HDD/SSD (pls note that Virtual Box has worse performance than you would actually have)

this tbh
Also, MS backported at least some of the Botnet 10 spyware to Windows 7, and Windows was never very private anyway.
Is there a reason why not to use btrfs filesystem? I notice that the swapfile feature is now compatible with btrfs as long I'm using linux kernel >= 5.0. I kinda want the easy way to do backup with snapshot though. As for btrfs stability concern, I'm not using RAID or anything like that.

Btw that gpg Sakaki guide looks very neat indeed except in my part, I need to get an additional package for gpg hooks configuration. Thanks for the gentoo link anon.
If I was starting now I'd probably only run linux in a virtual box and not dual-boot. Dual-booting is annoying as fuck.
/throd. been doing this for years. good advice.
most distros offer an iso but not a tarball, how can i "install" any distro so i can chroot on them?
>offer an iso but not a tarball
that's a good thing, so that you don't have to go through the compiling process of the tarball.
>how can i "install" any distro so i can chroot on them?
You need to to boot the iso first by turning it into bootable distro in your thumb drive or burn it into empty cdrom disk. In Windows, there's program call rufus where you can do all that. After booting, depends on what kind of distro you've downloaded. The generous distro developer would include installer inside them. If there's no installer, you have to do the installation process manually.
ok, i will elaborate, i want to have the filesystem of any distro after installation in a subdirectory where i can chroot to, this way i dont need a vm for each distro, a tarball is basically the filesystem compressed, is there a method to get the filesystem of any distro or i will have to install from the iso and copy the filesystem to my subdirectory?>>656
No, a chroot is an operation that changes the apparent root directory that is from another root installed distro for your current root system. You cannot chroot into a tarball filesystem because that's not how it works. If you thinking of installing multiple distro in a same partition so that you can chroot onto them, there's a user that actually manage to adopt that kind of setup https://askubuntu.com/questions/405735/installing-multiple-linux-distros-in-a-single-partition

I personally wouldn't recommend doing so because it makes everything more complicated.
This is more of an ideaguy question, but how would you handle linking to tags in an imageboard?

Say threads can have tags, and you can browse/search threads by tag. So you need to be able to link to a tag in the current board, on a different board, and across all boards.

For example:
##sometag links to 'sometag' on the current board
###sometag links to 'sometag' on all boards
###/tech/sometag links to 'sometag' on /tech/ only

Would that be too inconsistent? Maybe you'd use ###/*/sometag to search across all boards, that would seem more consistent. But you'd probably want to use that so often that it would be beneficial to use just ###sometag and think of a different way to link to tag on a board. For example ###sometag@board or something.
Been stuck with windows 7 and seemingly there's alot of fuss about when they drop support for it, it would be a frenzy feed for hackers. Is this just normalfags blowing this out of proportions or is it this bad? If so is the LTSC version of win10 good enough?

Well, there's two types of 'tags' in the context of your question, Satan.
1) JSON tags. These are common to all imageboards, and don't care what kind of media, etc. are involved.
For example:
"board_type" : "lynxchan",
"comment_tag" : "message",
"file_ext_tag" : "",
"file_hash_tag" : "",
"file_name_tag" : "path",
"file_orig_tag" : "originalName",
"files_arr_tag" : "files",
"last_bump_tag" : "lastBump",
"media_dir_tag" : "",
"op_replies_tag" : "posts",
"site_name" : "julay.world",
"subject_tag" : "subject",
"thread_id_tag" : "threadId"

These are tags that will occur in one variation or another in any imageboard. This example happens to be julay.world and the lynxchan software it relies on. Other boards will use other specifics for these same tags, but the general tag is the same. For example, 8kun and it's openib variant of vichan:
"board_type" : "openib",
"comment_tag" : "com",
"file_ext_tag" : "ext",
"file_hash_tag" : "md5",
"file_name_tag" : "tim",
"file_orig_tag" : "filename",
"files_arr_tag" : "extra_files",
"last_bump_tag" : "last_modified",
"media_dir_tag" : "file_store",
"op_replies_tag" : "posts",
"site_name" : "8kun.net",
"subject_tag" : "sub",
"thread_id_tag" : "no"

Same 13 general tags, different specifics right?

2) Content tags. These are entirely separate from JSON file tags, and require humans in general to make them. For, example "My Favorite Bathtime Gurgles", or "Funny Cat Gifs".

Anyone know a way to host/get a mumble server without exposing your IP? I've seen some sites that advertise free mumble servers, but are those really secure? I'd like to rid myself of botnet VOIP services.
>host [...] without exposing your IP
This is by design impossible.
People need an address to connect to your server, so no matter what you do an address must be known to everyone.
Even if you use a different address assigned to a machine that then forwards to the real server, that machine still has to know the address of the server.
Similarily, any client will have its address be publically known (to the server) because the server needs to know where to send data.
I figured as much. So are free mumble hosting services safe to use? Like https://www.imumble.nl/. I only need to have a handful of people (4-5 at most) in it so I'm not concerned with bandwidth, just security.
>by design impossible
normally, and on clearnet.
abnormally, you can use CloudFlare or similar. In this case visitors resolve your domain to a CloudFlare IP, they connect, and CloudFlare talks separately with your server, without exposing your IP. This is how CloudFlare actually protects anyone from DDOS attacks: the attackers don't know the IP to attack, and have to attack CloudFlare, which has the money to deal with the attacks.
CloudFlare probably isn't a good option for mumble though, unless it's voice-over-HTTPS.
and of course on the darknet you can get the exact same IP hiding through e.g. Tor hidden services, where connections to an .onion address are onion-routed to your real server, and real IPs are hidden in both directions.
again probably an annoyance for mumble hosting.
But if you want communications without exposing your IP, there are ways depending on your adversary.
>hide from analytics companies
use TorBrowser. analytics companies care about more than your IP, and TorBrowser tries a lot harder to secure you from that extra stuff.
>untrustworthy admins/mods
1. if the site doesn't block tor somehow, use TorBrowser or Brave Browser's built in tor support, or any browser with tor.
2. get some cheap VPSes and proxy requests through them. This gives you a number of identities to work with, but it's a hassle to recycle them (hosting companies will not go along with "hi I want a new IP for NO REASON").
3. use an unturstworthy VPN? even if it's a scam, if your main concern is site admins, as long as they proxy your traffic you're getting what you want.

Does True/Veracrypt in-place encryption work offline or online and can it be paused and resumed like bitlocker?
If you're on Windows, use bitlocker.
If you're on Linux, use LUKS+AES.
I'm not sure why you would want or need Veracrypt.
This post is fucking radioactive holy shit.
I'm sorry, I had assumed that was a Windows user. Use LUKS+AES like everyone else.

Are there any decent laptops still being made? I need a new one and don't want to buy something used.
There are a lot of problems buying laptops new. They aren't like standard PC's where individual parts can easily be replaced, fixed, or upgraded. So you're essentially buying something that's doomed to melt itself into hardware failure in ~5 years. Whereas at least if you buy used old shitty thinkpads it feels less like you've been scammed since they're so disposable and you can get another for $100-$200. If money isn't an issue I guess you can get one of those purism laptops, though they have absolute shit hardware for their price. But if you don't care about privacy or security I'd just go watch some jewtube videos about the best value laptop currently on the market. No one here is going to know enough about or recommend new modern laptops considering how anti-/tech/ culture they often are with the botnet and nu-features they have.

Here's some video that seems to cover most of the bases, and it's very recent.
go with System76.
+ coreboot
+ disabled intel shit
+ tends to work with BSD
+ expandable & maintainable
+ sometimes pretty stylish (last generation 17" Oryx Pro is a beaut)
+ good support
+ Pop_OS! ain't bad
- generic (their manufacturer sells the same shit for less to other people)
- you'll probably need the support (always had a high rate of failures with them)
- they have the disgusting diversity-hugging-each-other logo on the windows key
- you could've just bought a refurbished ThinkPad
- Dell XPS is pretty nice as well
- HP laptops always work well with Linux for me and are the most beautiful stuff on the market
system76 desktops look alright as well.
Just wait for the PPC notebook to come out, it should only take another 3-4 years. Less if the OpenPOWER Foundation throws some money at it to promote the ISA.
Should I just get a thinkpad then? I don't care about ultra thin shit I just want something I can run OpenBSD/Gentoo on. I need a laptop for fixing shit when I'm away from home and my last one melted itself.

I need it now not in 10 years.
Depends on what you want to do with it like I said. If you want to do basic shit and don't need powerful hardware the consensus among most people is to deal hunt on ebay for a used thinkpad. If you're asking about new thinkpads? Compared to other modern laptops they're kind of just the same, except with better keyboards. Though I've never owned a modern laptop and that's just me regurgitating what I've heard people say in jewtube videos. I don't really feel comfortable giving direct recommendations to someone spending hundreds of dollars, so since you're hardly explaining the daily use case I'd say just do your own research on various products.
Is there a place where a beginner can learn to code, but its made fun? Or at the very least, a very good tutorialTrying to learn Java so bare with me
Why are there literally ZERO decent TKL membrane keyboards on the market? It's insane. The one I happened to find for a good price on ebay ended up being pretty shit with inconsistent key presses and keys getting stuck. It's virtually impossible to find a well made, wired, TKL membrane keyboard. Meanwhile it's also virtually impossible to find a reasonably priced MX Clear switch board, which is the closest you can get to a membrane. This is some fucking bullshit.

Currently the Radeon 5700 XT is the highest end from AMD. Make sure you get one without a blower cooler, as there's issues with noise and heat. I've seen some good deals at Micro Center, where dual-fan 5700 XTs cost around $360. If you want to save even more money, get a 5700 with a BIOS switch like the Sapphire Pulse or the Powercolor Red Dragon, and then flash a 5700 XT BIOS for higher performance.

Are there any decent ways to host simple html/CSS/js content for free?

I want to make my own "homepage" of sorts where I can put shit into, but hosting my own server is not viable and I don't want to throw around my personal information through paying. All I really need is a static file host that allows directly viewing the files (instead of downloading them), and the ability to modify them. All the "free website" websites want to shove some template editor at you, and I don't want that shit, I want to edit the raw html or at the very minimum inject css/javascript into it (since with javascript you can just replace the whole page with anything if you want so it can serve the desired effect).
Also before these get mentioned; Github captcha is broken so I can't make an account, Gitlab uses google captcha so I can't make an account, Netlify wants me to use some botnet email instead of my own so I can't make an account.
don't use SJWhub anyway, anon. Use gitgud.io or gitlab.com
Gitgud doesn't allow hosting pages from what I can tell so it's not valid in this context.
The only limitations are that a single file can't be larget than 20MB or something and you have a maximum of 50000 hits per day. You can use either their online file manager or FTP to get your files to your website, and I dont think they even have a template editor. There's also no ads or trackers injected into your site.
Uses google captcha. I'm starting to remember why I don't use anything on the internet anymore besides imageboards.
I wanna start writing down a tabletop RPG system, but I am not sure what to use. My initial idea was to use org-mode, but, despite what the org-mode fanboys say, it seems to be not so good for literate writing, due to linewrap fuckery (I know that can be disabled, it's just that the default behaviour is there for a reason). Now, I'm thinking about using QOwnNotes to make the draft, then maybe use Scribus to lay it down nicely once I'm done.
Can anyone convince me org-mode can be comfier than a WYSIWYG program? I know org-mode is way more powerful, but I'm not sure I need all of that.
surge.sh maybe?
I haven't used that but apparently the entire process of signing up and uploading your website works completely throught the command line, so I doubt they have google captcha
Looks very interesting. It requires bloat.js because for some reason it's too hard to make even a command line program for uploading files without it nowadays, but I'm willing to deal with that if the program works as easily as advertised.
How about neocities.org? The guy who runs spyware.neocities.org seems to have custom html.
I fiddled around with surge.sh for a bit and it does indeed seem to be just as easy as advertised. Just navigate to a folder with your shit in it, and then call surge. It asks you to make an account, which only requires email and password and nothing else. It suggests a random subdomain by default, but you can change it to whatever.
Visit my amazing page: http://tsun.surge.sh/

Only problem is that it doesn't seem to allow modifying an individual file, so you either reupload literally everything every time or nothing.

Uses google captcha. I'd rather give up than ever allow it to run on my computer.

Which Thinkpad is good for casual use? Just planning to use it for tinkering in Linux, playing XP/Vista tier games like elona+ and fortune summoners, and writing docs.

Also any linux distro recommendations? I was looking towards manjaro or opensuse, are any of those easy to deal with.
>are any of those easy to deal with.
If you're a linux newb, there is only one answer to that question: Ubuntu.

It's geared explicitly for newfags and has by far the largest community around it. But in a similar fashion to Wangblows it's also loaded with botnet by the company packaging it Canonical. So plan to move on to something better like Manjaro then Gentoo within six months anon.
If you're going for something newer, I'd recommend a Dell Latitude over a thinkpad. I've had a few of the newer ones and struggled with driver issues the whole time, while I've never had any issues out of the box with a Dell.
Not a total newbie, but the laptop I had previously was garbage and kept shutting down and acting weird for some reason. Too cheap of am laptop to buy a new battery, might as well buy a new one.

Thanks for the info. Does the Dell laptop have the same or similar build quality to older thinkpads? And I wasn't planning to get the new macbook look a like thinkpads, I was planning to get the older refurbished and used models like the T or X series.
Latitudes are the enterprise model, so good build quality, easy to repair, and can be found cheap on eBay. The new-ish thinkpads that I had were a T440 and A-something, both had plenty of driver issues on Linux.
Wow that's pretty weird. Aren't thinkpads renowned for their compatibility with most distros?
The IBM thinkpads are, but those are over a decade old at this point.
>the laptop I had previously was garbage and kept shutting down and acting weird for some reason
Was it a hardware problem?
My current laptop would do something like that: when it first happened it was something like 3 or 4 months after I bought it so I still had the warranty; I brought it to the shop where I bought it so they could fix it or something. They told me it was the disk that broke, but after they changed it it still happened after a couple of weeks.
It turns out the problem was that the disk controller is not part of the motherboard, but it's a separate piece connected to the motherboard with an extremely small connector; needless to say, the tiniest movement would "unalign" (for a lack of a better term) the connector, essentially disconnecting the disk from the motherboard.
The solution was to swap the CD reader with the HDD.
I really don't know what it was, but it was most likely a hardware problem. Didn't care anyways since its a cheap laptop from Walmart that my mother gave to me. Processor only ran at 1.6 GHz max.

Can you explain the issue with google captcha? I personally dont like it but is there security/tracking issues? All i know is that is has its own specific google scripts
Maybe its similar to proxychains but that term is also new to me and ill have to look it up
It's collecting data about you every time you use it. It's like the facebook like button where if you don't block it you're basically handing them your entire browser history. It's also used to train AI, that's why it asks you to identify things like signs.
You become another stat in google analytics and train their self driving car AI with photos from their global spy network aka google streetview.
Oh and remember the old recaptcha with 2 words? Those were taken from scanned books and you were digitising them for sale on google books.

A few rabdom skewed letters is all a captcha needs.
>website starts loading
>it's a solid white square
What's the point of a dark theme if websites are blindingly white when loading? How can I make websites not blindingly white when loading on chromium?
Besides what other anons said, the purpose (at least on the surface) of google captcha is to detect whether you're a bot or not. It's one of the most likely surfaces for analyzing all kinds of information about you and connecting it to other information that google knows about you. Since you're most likely registering an account, it will also be able to read all the information in the registration form including your email and username (unless you create new random ones just for that form). In the case of making a post in imageboards, it can possibly read what you're about to post.

But primarily it's become a principle. I don't really think "I don't want to be tracked by this" anymore, I just refuse to take part in a giant global spying corporation injecting itself into everything. If you put that shit into your website then I'm not using your website, period.
Forgot to mention that google is evil in more ways than spying. Censoring information/videos and manipulating search results is something they do all the time.

They also push leftist agendas through censorship and more visibly through the google logo header. They often put insignificant nonwhites into the google logo image, yet neglect much more significant accomplishments by whites. And there was that recent-ish space related event where the google header had almost no white people in it even though basically everyone related to it was white. Youtube logo that sticks to the top of the screen often has all kinds of gay pride flags and shit in it as well. Youtubers in general have had issues for a long time with unresponsive and unethical behavior by google, and again preferring to put nonwhites and women into their yearly recap videos instead of people/events that were much bigger but involved white people.

Nobody will hire you for javascript. Now a bloated flavor of the month javascript framework though, as long as you can shit out anything with it you're good to go.
So javashit became javashit modular edition?
It's not even javascript anymore.
"Modern" frameworks have shit like their own DSL or some junk declarative statements to do their things.
People using pure javascript (even jQuery!) are either people working on the framework themselves or on some ancient piece of code.

It's the same as when vch.moe required javascript, I won't use it until they turn it off.

Nowadays with a completely different audience comprising almost entirely of phone posters I'm not confident that they'll turn it off.

How do you use ffprobe/ffmpeg to detect if a video is playable on the web? What should you be looking for? Should you whitelist properties or blacklist them?
>to detect if a video is playable on the web?
You're better off trying opening it with a web browser.
I'm trying to filter uploads from people into a server.
Then stick to a selected few combination of audio/video encodings.
For example refuse anything but VP8+Vorbis (the old webm combination.)
If you look at the output of ffprobe you'll see it labels some fields: just use grep on the labels and then examine the resulting string for the actual encoding.
It's not really foolproof but it works.
>stick to a selected few combination of audio/video encodings.
That's gay. I want to do the exact opposite; support as many videos as possible for most browsers. I just don't know what I should be aiming for with that goal in mind, what formats and settings I should be filtering by.
>I just don't know what I should be aiming for with that goal in mind, what formats and settings I should be filtering by.
The only thing you can do is set a whitelist and expand it as browsers support more formats.
Well then, let me rephrase: right now at this moment when I need to add things into a whitelist, I have no idea what to add into it.
Couldn't you just run something like umatrix, and limit everything besides what makes the page work? How much access does javascript get when you allow it?

In Windows command prompt, how do you enter the directory that a shortcut (.lnk) points to?

This is literally impossible to google. If you try to cd into it, it won't work. If you try to cd into it without the extension, it also won't work. If you just type 'shortcut.lnk', it opens an explorer window.
Short answer, what you want is impossible because .lnk files aren't any kind of link it's stupid windows fuckery.
God dammit. There has to be some easier way to go to common folders than typing them manually or creating separate command prompts.
Thanks for the answer though, I hate that "shortcut" also means keyboard shortcuts and every other word is even more generic so all the search results are useless.
Fuck, right as I typed this out I realized I could just make a bat file with the cd command. That works.

Meta question: does /tech/ consider Libbie its mascot? I know she wasn't made for this board, but following the LibreOffice disaster she's gained some affinity here. I've just never heard it explicitly said one way or the other, so I'd like to get some opinions on the matter.

I doubt anyone would recommend VPN's they personally use since it means they're IP's are more likely to get banned on imageboards and what not. I would just apply some general rules like if it has a massive marketing budget it should probably be avoided, so things like PIA or NordVPN are probably bad ideas.

i was watching my internet traffic through nethogs and just see a suspicious outgoing request. Checked it and shit is Google. Why would my debian linux i3wm computer sends data to Google?
>>1166 Plenty of modern internet-related (though usually dealing with the web) software regularily sends data to servers effectively owned by Google, e.g. through some 3rd party service that relies on some other service offered by Google. Usually this is advertised as "gathering data to improve the software", but ultimately they are just sending a bunch of data to Google. You should check each and every one of the programs you have installed, so you know which one is connecting to that address. It's the only way to know for sure; as far as we know it might even be your terminal emulator of choice. This also includes your init system, because if you happened to forget, systemd has a built-in DNS resolver which uses Google's services to resolve records.

Should I switch from manjaro, are the devs that bad, I often hear they are but does anyone have examples. I use arch on my laptop but I've avoided using it on my main desktop in-case I break something. Messed around with mint but I didn't want to try updating my kernal for ryzen 3000 cpu support (temps etc) because I'll shit it up. I often wonder if rolling release is that great because you seem to be at the will of random updates to everything but it does mean you never have to preform large updates every 6 months and I find it easier than debain & apt. Has anyone been running a rolling release distro for a long time say 5-6 years - is it worth it long term ?
>>1236 I no expert on Linux, but the most consistent distro I've used is MX Linux. Manjaro has been nothing but headaches with random issues that I couldn't even begin to understand or troubleshoot.
>>1238 Thanks I'll check out MX, I'm no advanced arch user but if you ever decided to try rolling release again, doing the arch install process and using it on my laptop helped me better understand and fix a lot of the problems I've have had with manjaro.
Never used manjaro but the differences between distros is minimal, that is to say instead of changing Operating Systems all the time you should focus on learning how to fix what is broken. I suggest doing an LFS install as a learning experience. As far as the rolling release question, I would reccomend gentoo as its kind of the best of both worlds, you can be on stable but easily install newer versions of packages if you need some new feature or whatever. Doing this on Debian distros causes apt to shit itself overtime iirc.
>>1241 >differences between distros is minimal The differences are huge in some respects, but when it comes to breaking, yes, they're all similar. Ubuntu is a pretty good choice for learning how to fix stuff because the internet is overflowing with ubuntu noobs asking how to fix their shit and very patient people giving the right answers, if not deprecated. >>1236 >Has anyone been running a rolling release distro for a long time Yes, but it's a server, so I don't have drivers and graphics to fuck up.

What's a good way to sanitize text so that it can't contain invisible characters or any weird zalgo shit, but still allows foreign text like Japanese?
>>1281 1. Do not question the optimizer. 2. Do not even ask why it copies the stack pointer to esi and uses that register further on instead of the actual sp. Or do ask that, but try to answer that yourself by checking out what those other functions do with the sp. Maybe the calling convention of F2940C0 requires the caller to reserve some stack space above the return address. Or maybe it doesn't and maybe the optimizer just couldn't think of a good way to rearrange the instructions to make 4 pushes. Or maybe it has good reason for this arrangement because of better cache hit ratio, pipelining, speculative execution, parallel execution... but then see 1. Do ask yourself why you're not using ghidra for what is basically static analysis. If that code is somewhat new, ghidra will not only produce readable C code but even help you reconstruct classes and methods, so you can check how many and which arguments the static virtual method [[eax]+3A0] really takes.

Anyone know how to force streaming videos through Tor? I'd love to be able to do something like "torsocks mpv <URL>" but it throws errors relating to name resolution because maybe torsocks routes DNS through Tor and that only supports TCP not UDP.
>>1288 >Is there an alternative Within platforms, yes. Faceberg, instaberg, tiktok, imgur, twatter etc are full of uploaded videos. The concept of sharing dumb videos within a platform is so successful it even killed the vine. But when people look for videos, they will search within jewtube and jewtube only (and pornhub). Vimeo, dailymotion, wikileaks, bitchute, they're all niches for stuff that doesn't fit on jewtube and people who don't fit there either. Vimeo, you're still in my bookmarks, but you've faded from browser history. :'( So with the internet happening on a couple dozen sites, do you want to upload a video to the big archive where everyone can see it but never will, or do you want to upload it to "social" media where it's seen by all your 12 (((friends))) once and never again? >>1293 >yeah it was using the SP in there I mean did it leave the sp at a different address or did it change values in those 8 bytes of "reserved" space? Most functions don't behave like that, but I've seen a couple of times where it was on the caller to prepare the callee's stack or clean it up. Not that it would make a difference really, because it's still "because optimizer", but it would ease my mind as to why that function starts using ESI. Anyways good luck, hackerman. >>1294 torsocks does handle DNS correctly, but mpv probably can't handle the proxy: https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/issues/3373 So use privoxy, use the web player that comes with the stream or come back with pcap files of you trying to open a stream.
>>1288 Related to this, are there any non-botnet alternatives to Google Captcha? Some websites, such as bitchute, would work well enough without 3rd party javascript, but the registration on these sites always requires google captcha. I'm not that bothered by occasionally having to use google captcha for downloading files and such things, but I certainly do not want to create an account if that account is tied to google. If there is an alternative, then one could try to lobby the site owners to change the captcha system, so that the web would be more usable without botnet.

I installed Void Linux on a Chromebook and I have everything mostly working with the exception of one problem: for some reason, certain music players and applications (mpv, vlc) play audio 2x fast, quiet, and extremely distorted when playing compressed formats (mp3, ogg).

Apparently something in the system didn't agree with 32-bit samples.

If a whole game could be converted to native instructions you'd only need some 600MHz CPU. Some PowerPC instructions require multiple x86/ARM instructions, so there'd be a little bit of overhead. But the JIT can only convert small parts of a game, because a game can use dynamic addresses and self-modifying code and shit, so there's a lot of places where dolphin has to manually read and process each instruction and that's fucking slow. >>1360 Can you record and play voice messages and use the camera?

>>1383 >Can you record and play voice messages and use the camera? Yes, all SMS/MMS Equivalents function with their intended purpose. The only thing that seems to fail is the encrypted Internet VoIP (which I assume is how Signal does that). Strangely, I also hear the ringing signal but others don't see me call, nor do I see them call. I'm begining to think it is an emulated mp3 because the server itself doesn't provide POTS-type telephony signals. >Can you see DNS logs and does it have successful lookups for what looks like Signal servers? Better yet, can you do a traffic capture on your phone, over ADB or on an access point? This is more than I am willing to do, though I suppose I might as well eventually. >Maybe there's an event log or error log somewhere on the phone too. Is there a /var/log directory?

Then add extra fields and tables like a toggle to make your post pink or to add emoji to an existing post. Each of these should take anywhere from a day to a week to understand and play with depending on your programming skills. Setting up the IB and finding the appropriate database editor might even be the hardest part.
What is your take on UDev? Necessary complexity for dynamically managing and auto mounting devices or pure bloat? It is now part of SystemD but it didn't begin this way. I wasn't able to find an alternative with equivalent functionalities. It seems that MDev was what came closest to it, still falling behind though.
>>1417 SystemD is shit and linux in general needs to be rewritten from the ground up. Config files shouldn't be scattered across the entire fucking directory structure, for one. Two, there's no need for fifteen fucking tools and thirty scripts to do the job of one. The duplication problem is awful. t. dealing with hardware issues lately and had to deep dive past reddit-tier comprehension of computers and 99% of the time come up with "this is a known bug" because the devs are too fucking lazy to move three bytes in their goddamn code for an if case.

We know that Linux is posed, but what about the GPL? Version 2 still seem like a fine license. Regarding the permissive licenses, doesn't it bother you that others can sell your work or use it on their projects without giving anothing back?
>>1471 People can sell even GPL-licensed software without contributing back for what is worth. The license doesn't stop you from doing it; the only requirement is that users of your software have access to the source code. In practice this means that if the users of your software are only those who paid for it, you don't have to put your source code on the internet on a publically accessible repository, just that inside the zip file (or whatever you use to distribute the software to your customers) there is also the source code besides the executable. And the GPLv2 has a number of holes that allow certain non-free software to avoid some restrictions placed by the license in some specific cases. The GPLv3 is more well-defined and the only real "issue" is that not everyone wants to deal with the "virality" of the license.

You can also just make a throwaway account on github and add an issue like https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Android/issues/8302 .

You know that scrum agile project tracking software that developers use at their jobs? I'd like to use something like that but for myself and my own projects only. Ideally some FOSS clone of Jira as a standalone application instead of some software as a service on the cloud bullshit. Any recommendations?
>>1668 Why?
>>1676 >standalone application Nope, you're gonna run a local webserver at the very least. Assuming you not only need issue tracking but also time tracking and organization, it's gonna be Redmine. Assuming you barely know shit about servers and you only use it yourself, I recommand you go for SQLite as a database, which saves you a number of installation steps. And I recommend you get redmine through docker, because that prevents you from fucking up the redmine environment and the installation of redmine gets reduced to (see https://hub.docker.com/_/redmine ) docker run -d -p 3000:3000 redmine in a command prompt, after which you can login on http://localhost:3000/ .

My chinkware monitor (Prism M27eq)'s HDMI 2.0 port crapped out. It works but Windows detects it as "Generic PnP monitor" with a resolution of 640x480. Other ports on the monitor work. Any potential solutions? Factory reset didn't do shit, except make the settings menu Chinese. Unintalling and reinstalling graphics card drivers didn't work either, and the monitor just works when I plug it into any other ports.
>>1766 Have you checked the cable?
>>1766 I should note, the whole thing was weird. I was playing autismcraft with a jewropoor friend on his server. We both lost connection and my computer fucked up with the monitor completely losing power. Had to plug it in and out a few times until it worked at all again. At the same time as I was having monitor issues, my friend's internet got disconnected for half an hour. Thought we got hacked or some shit. >>1767 The cable itself works with another HDMI port on the monitor, and another HDMI cable didn't help.
>>1774 Try the monitor with another computer. If it works, the monitor is fine. Otherwise, either the circuit board in the monitor is fried or the HDMI port is broken.
