>(((SAN FRANCISCO))) — With growing criticism over misinformation in search results, Google is taking a harder look at potentially "upsetting" or "offensive" content, tapping humans to aid its computer algorithms to deliver more factually accurate and less inflammatory results. >The humans are Google's 10,000 independent contractors who work as what Google calls quality raters. They are given searches based on real queries to score the results, and they operate based on guidelines provided by Google. >On Tuesday they were handed a new one: to hunt for "Upsetting-Offensive" content such as hate or violence against a group of people, racial slurs or offensive terminology, graphic violence including animal cruelty or child abuse or explicit information about harmful activities such as human trafficking, according to guidelines posted by Google. >The goal: to steer people with queries such as "did the Holocaust happen" to trustworthy websites and not to websites that engage in falsehoods or hate speech.

This is clear collusion.Google does not want you to know that pizza means disposable children. Forget about why they are disposed and how they are cultivated. Lets all sit with our thumbs up our asses as the elite shift the scorecard to rig their game.
Bacons been supporting vid.me since 2015. Every now and then faggot would go on autistic rants on twitter about some stupid shit but he predicts some shit such as recently with disney and the youtube age gate before it blew up. Hes like some underground youtuber with the rarist rumors its scary sometimes. still a faggot though. don't watch his videos.
Josh announces 16chan is kill, gives a shout-out to Endchan. 16chan refugees incoming!
>I'd rather not see 16chan die a slow death from neglect so I am going to humanely put it down.
>At the moment, I do not have the time, energy, or financial resources to give the love and attention that a community or open-source project needs to grow.
>I appreciate everyone who stuck around during the life of the board and I enjoyed talking and collaborating with people just as weird as I am. I'm sorry I don't have what it takes to bootstrap this. I originally started 16chan as a place to showcase the software and it grew just a little heart because it had something special. With Ron now adequately approaching 8chan's issues using a playbook I contributed to, that something special is no longer so unique.
>I have a dream that involves this place. Until I collapse, I will work towards achieving it, and when I have my resources together I will see it to completion. It pains me too much to let it languish in the state it was in.
Since the boogaloo with 8chan, was it really a good idea to have 5 different alternatives (end, libre, 16, final, freech, and I think I'm even forgetting some more) prop up, each with a small pool of users and low activity?
>>508 I agree with this, it also didn't help when you had earlier ones going to boards besides the big three on 8ch and screaming how the site is dead and everyone needs to move or your a shill/posting endless tl;dr info-graphics that included bogus claims like shadow banning. Kind of pissed off the small good boards to where they tell people trying to advertise one to fuck off now, users are jaded whenever *chan of the month pops up. Combined with the deadness of these alternatives it also makes it seem like a migration of people will never work unless 8ch dies for good. You would need more than a handful of people from one big board, like several smaller boards going at once too to prove that others need to as well.
>Dispensationalism >Biblical More like eisegetical dogma. A self proclaimed Calvinist that believes in Dispensationalist is a closet Anglican and also believes that God contradicts Himself as to the nature of how He predestines his people regardless of whatever era one is born in. Dispensationalism makes the Jews saved by blood, not by their faith. When people say Covenant Theology instead of Replacement Theology or the Reformed Faith, they refer to Dispensationalism. They believe that the Church cannot replace Israel and by that they mean flesh and blood Israelites. If that what they think is going on, then they never truly understood the bible in its entirety, also known as "Tota Scriptura", not to be confused with "Sola Scriptura". Most pro King James Version Onlyism people listen to fallacious people preaching nonsense like Sola KJV which is that only the spelling of the King James Version bible can save one's soul, while most of these people come from Anglican based denominations. Baptists that weren't Reformed Baptists like the Southern Baptists had lost their way and are full of Freemasons.
Eric Jon Phelps used to not believe in the Flat Earth Theory just a year ago, but now he's a full blown shill and caved into its nonsense so that he can get more money from the Flat Earthers while his hardcore followers already stopped listening to EJP when he was inconsistent in what he taught concerning the true nature of the English Monarchists trying to use the Protestant Reformation to reform England since Henry VIII hated the Vatican messing with his life. He had hid the nature of King James' closet homosexuality, how he was hated by the Puritans, Calvinists, Presbyterians, Anabaptists and were persecuted under his papist reign through the state controlled Anglicans that pushed Arminianism that focuses on works based salvation, AKA: Penance.
It is from a Dispensationalist stance that Premillennialism and a Pre-Tribulational rapture is promoted, that Apostle John is made a liar for recording the book of Revelation after the destruction of Jerusalem in a 3 and half year period from AD 66 to 70. I have said time and time again that I'm a Partial Preterist, not a Full/Hyper Preterist. There will be a rapture, but before that happens, God would have to gather the tares first to burn them. We are already in the spiritual, allegorical 1000 year reign of Christ Jesus on earth through the Holy Spirit preaching the gospel unto all nations and that kingdom of God is the body of Christ. I argue that this stance is the most consistent stance, which is why many scholars in their ivory towers seek to dismiss Partial Preterism. Almost all of the stuff in Matthew 24 historically happened while Matthew 25 has yet to come.
Anglican Priest Ethelbert William Bullinger (E.W. Bullinger) is where most of this modern understanding of the seven Dispensations garbage comes from, which is not the same form of "Dispensationalism" that was traditionally held which is that the church was formed at Pentecost that had done away with the older system God had with the Judahites. This dispensationalism you know of is called hyper/ultra-dispensationalism. E.W. Bullinger is also a member of the Universal Zetetic Society, the name of the Flat Earth Society before they had their name changed.
After a long period researching a new host and waiting for the right inventory to become available. We have found one. We're getting the keys tomorrow. Our new set up is $100USD/mo, a little more than our old server but it's much better hardware (3 times the cpus and ram, double the disk space) and we believe this is a better arrangement moving forward.
This includes an $85USD/mo 12 cores (24 threads) of 2.6ghz and 2x2tb HDD set up (HW RAID) in RAID 1. It has 6 bays and it is rent/lease to own, which means after 12 months we can reduce our monthly cost. It'll be a little slower than what we're on now (3.5ghz) but service levels should be more consistent.
Then the remaining $15USD/mo. is a front end caching VPS with encrypted disks (root and swap). We will use this to hide our backend server better, prevent DDoS and help put the nail in Cloudflare's coffin.
We'll be migrating to these new servers over the next week. Please hang with us and let us know any problems you may have.
We rely on your donations to stay independent and have our own hardware. This is a first major step in improving our infrastructure and having a long term plan to ensure we'll be around when needed. While we have a couple months buffer, I'd like to ask if you like what we're doing, to see if you can help kick down some bitcoin to ensure our continued existence.
Does the ridiculously high 350 MB file size affect the server cost? There aren't any cheaper servers you can find? Can you replace all existing animated GIFs with thumbnails so they don't auto-play when people load the page to reduce a bit of unnecessary bandwidth usage?
>>5823 Ok, why is it bad? How can we make it better? Buttons/links too small? Zoom problems? For bonus point include some screenshots.
>>5834 >Does the ridiculously high 350 MB file size affect the server cost? Yes and no. It does effect the cost because we have to have a 2nd disk of the same size for RAID1 and then we have to back it up. Even with 350 MB files and being online over 1 year, we've never hit 1TB nor had to run the vacuum script. 1TB drives are so cheap these days, it's hard to find anything smaller (for example the old server we're leaving has 8tb hard drives). Also we got such a great deal on our new set up, it's hard to compete with the value.
>There aren't any cheaper servers you can find? In the short term, yes. We looked at VPSes, $35/mo for 1TB but it was with a provider that fucked us over originally, so I didn't feel confident they're not going to increase that price either. The are other providers will cheap solutions but we ran out of time to research and vet them. Plenty of shit-tier VPS providers that over ratio their boxes and have lots of problems (See troubles with NextChan, LibreChan, Kiwifarms and 8ch.pl) In the long term, no. This lease to own option allows us to purchase the server hardware (a very nice dual hexcore box) at $20/mo more than we were paying previously for our dedicated server. In a year this will allow us to have really nice hardware and drop our costs to VPS levels.
>Can you replace all existing animated GIFs with thumbnails so they don't auto-play when people load the page to reduce a bit of unnecessary bandwidth usage
Any way we can increase the character limit used for flags? The current limit (16) is barely large enough for a relatively normal name like 'Michael Jordan' let alone enough to submit some of our gag flags like...
Person of Interest - NHP - Yakub the Evil Black Scientist Who Lived 6,600 Years Ago and Created the White Race Through a Selective Breeding Process Known as 'Grafting'
I don't know what the formal limit of flag files is either as it doesn't say, but I currently have close to 700 of them and they're all very dear to our community so something to keep in mind.
Also it would be nice if we could embed off site videos hosted on youtube, liveleak, dailymotion, vimeo etc. into the post itself like 8chan. Of course you can just post urls in the post's comment body itself, but embedding is a nice feature that gives the post a contextual visual to accompany it, gnomesaiyan?
[4:10pm] OdiliComm: StephenLynx: https://endchan.xyz/operate/res/5852.html#5852 [4:10pm] OdiliComm: is your new 1.7.5 patch causing this? [4:10pm] OdiliComm: threads not expiring [4:11pm] StephenLynx: the post itself is gone. [4:11pm] StephenLynx: what probably happened was a failure to delete the preview or page of the thread. [4:12pm] StephenLynx: and if the posts are old, that might have happened for a million reasons.
[5:02pm] StephenLynx: you can quote anything that is a number, if it doesn`t exist it will just quote a thread that doesn`t exist. [5:04pm] Balrog-was-here: the confusion probably comes from vichan not linkifying quotes of posts that don't exist
StephenLynx: OdiliComm, OdilisLap OdiliTime Balrog-was-here I couldn't reproduce it on 1.7.5 [05:50am] OdiliComm: k [05:55am] StephenLynx: there is also a possibility of your webserver having a cache of the file, perhaps. [05:55am] StephenLynx: you will have to check manually if the previews are alive on the db. [05:56am] OdiliComm: no there’s no caching on the webserver [05:56am] OdiliComm: they are [05:56am] StephenLynx: welp [05:56am] StephenLynx: then you will have to see what's up on your fork. [05:57am] OdiliComm: ok we’ll make a fix for our fork
StephenLynx: if I were to have a guess: [06:06am] StephenLynx: the post files are not being attributed correctly. [06:06am] StephenLynx: to their respective board, thread or post. [06:06am] StephenLynx: when content is deleted, the engine looks for any file attributed to the content and deletes it. [06:07am] StephenLynx: but if the file doesn't have the matching ownership, it won't be caught and deleted.
>Let us know what's up 8chan is being raided by pretend actor shill newfag normies saying shit from gamergate like "8chan is dead" it's a hostile shill takeover every fucking board is being raided silently by antitrump antifreedom of speech shills who have always hated 8chan, they are turning it into 4chan and they are saying things like "8ch.pl and endchan are DEAD" HAPPENING
Is the ban system broken or am I just fucking retarded and don't know what to put in the duration field? I try things like "April 1, 2017" that should work with the js mentioned in the moderation manual yet nothing happens when I try and ban a user.
but thy have to slum for work like all editors and end up cutting dome fag pr0n eventually, oh the horror stories I hear from career editors. Is video or audio engineering really even an actual job that people get paid for? Wow, that's awesome I guess. But the suffering of editing other people's worst video work, is painful, so, maybe pain taken, factors into this equation? We can assume faggoty means weak and petty and not an allusion to sexual prefs.
>>8094 That is being over dramatic. You would not be surprised how little some of these musicians know about technology. If you can quickly compliment thee clients desired sound then you are acting as that artists foundation and can control that artist completely for that en-devour. is the artistic intent that they pay you to captain. That is the feeling of power. Now when someone wants you to do something that is artistically bankrupt a lot of these guys fill it in with their kikeling virtue memeing.Disrupting that dynamic by whatever means necessary is the pleasure that is received.
Hmm, not webm related but that was some good stuff. but
> kikeling virtue memeing.
WTF either you are a kike or you have virtue. I don't buy into recent faggy terms or chanisms, like virtue signal etc, means jack shit to me.
This is kinda fitting tho that we have a cross spectrum thread on tech board about webms and windows versus unix old farts, music engineer versus musician, heh, reminds me of that skrillex song with some dude talking about how no one is a musician if you can't play guitar. I mean, I am bout as good at guitar as I am at nixy stuff, but still, can I play along, yes, can I set up a BF2 server yes. Can I make and upload a webm? Hmm only just recently, thanks to some germans.
Yes I know it's been awhile. I've had to deal with a lot of shit lately due to running low on money, moving, etc. I'll try to do what I can to help out from now on but I understand if I am not as respected as I once was due to my absence. Long live endchan!
PROMISEDCHAN (name liable to future change) There is a new imageboard-software concept in the works. Addressing the problem of powerful moderating positions being compromised and shitting up the board against the will of board communities and their established board culture. (See: 8/b/, 8/pol/, etc.) >Nothing that isn't spam or illegal is deleted, ever. You can subscribe to different moderation teams (and bots) to have the shit filtered to your liking. There would be a default moderation team for each board but the default would change if the majority changed the moderators they subscribed to.
>To keep normies from freaking the fuck out a default profile of moderation subscriptions will be applied by default, the default moderation will be decided by an impartial algorithm that takes in to account the modoration most users in a board choose, weighting the chooses by activity.
Unfortunately there is a shortage of skilled /tech/anons who are willing to assist in the planning and development of this new imageboard concept, which is holding back development.
If you're interested in assisting in the development of this new imageboard concept, please go to http://8ch.net/polk/res/102.html If the link is broken, try checking the catalog on http://8ch.net/polk/
Has anyone actually tried to follow these links other than me? It's fucking bizarre. It's very obvious spam links. I expected it would lead to a download with an exe, but it's always just more links. I guess they make money off the ads, but it all seems randomly generated by some sort of bot. It's not even a convincing trick that it should lead to something. What the fuck is this stuff and why is it posted here?
This is some seriously fucked up shit, and its as much in your interests as it is ours. Pics show a few highlights, but what you're looking at is the enemy's Strategic-level shilling plan for the next four years. It's all there.

Need a hide image button. Hides images and counts how many times it has been hidden and depending on how many times it is hidden out of the times it is viewed it should go into a perma hide mode forcefully before the user loads the image. This is a good way to report cp aswell.
I'm shocked at how little support there is on Android for Endchan. You truly should reach out to the devs of Chan Barauza or Everychan or Ouroborous or something and get them supporting this board. That's the key reason many folks do not migrate here.
The comments on the amazon page above (notice all this lcass of amazon style teccchh tards agglomerate not just tech but humans and their talking of buying things hah) show how nixers lost the ball to android people.
Very simply put I would rather have a difficulty +1 device that is a computer, even if its not touchscreen to fondle, or large screen, and even if its just a shitty risc processor, I want a computer, that is modular, not android/applestyle production line from Chinese Foxconned workers who get not right to leap from the rooves to their deaths.
To have a -1 device later iterative (as the comments describe it was 5500 then androidshits) that is not a computer, but which is a TARD TO TARD FONE DEVICE, is not an upgrade-based iterative. Notice good old POTS copper was ripped out by the same FIOS type shitheads, now all fios does i make your landline go dead when the power flattens and the batteries run dry, fucking great tactical upgrade dipshits.
Literally the programmers of the world, have destroyed the image of Picard confidently swiping on some ipad shits. they made it and made it totally reprehensible at the same time. They got richer than fuck all, and guns threads are not part of your board, so, good luck with the tech that helps you is all I say.

Laptop form factor open source hardware design, built from off the shelf components for DIY, modular, open source computing.
CPU, RAM, graphics: 1x single board computer
FSB, ports: 2x powered USB hub
Battery: 1x USB powerbank, >5000 mAh, >2A
Input: 1x USB keyboard
Input: 1x USB trackpad
Storage: 1x USB flash drive
Network: 1x USB WiFi dongle
Audio: 1x USB sound card/headset
Display: 1x USB powered HDMI monitor
Case: 3D printed or DIY glued wooden case
-Completely modular, customizable, upgradeable and repairable
-User serviceable by all users
-Universal, modular battery and charger. Can swap battery when depleted
The following posts will describe each component in detail, starting with the USB powerbank.
There are several good reasons to use a USB powerbank to power the DIY laptop. One is that it integrates both the charge controller and power supply into the battery. Another is that it is cheap and easy to replace. The last is that it contains enough energy to power a laptop for several hours.
10000 mAh is sufficient for 2.5 hours of operation at 20 W, which is the maximum power drawn by a 10 W SBC, 10 W display and peripherals. 20000 mAh is sufficient for 5 hours, 40000 mAh for 10 hours and so on. If the average power use is closer to 10 W, the operation time is doubled.
Most powerbanks can provide the 5V 2A required by single board computers. A few more can provide another 5V 1A output, or even 5V 2A. This second output can be used to power a 5V 2A display.
If one powerbank does not provide enough power, then multiple powerbanks can be used. One powerbank can be connected to the SBC, another to the display and so on. They can be charged simultaneously from a single USB cable by using a USB female to 2x micro USB male splitter, or USB Y cable.
Also choose a USB powerbank with passthrough charging. This feature allows recharging the powerbank while drawing power from it. This feature is needed to continue using the laptop while it is charging.
Charging USB powerbanks is very easy. USB AC adapters and USB cables are cheap and easy to find. Any USB port can be used for charging if needed. USB powerbanks are also very easy to charge off the grid by solar panel, handcrank generator or thermoelectric generator. Any source of 5V will charge a powerbank, even if only 100 mA.
The most important feature of a USB powerbank is that it can be charged separately from the laptop. This allows swapping discharged powerbanks for charged ones, which instantly recharges the DIY laptop. The discharged powerbank can then be recharged by any USB charger.
No computer actually needs a video display, as blind computer users demonstrate, but having one is much better than not.
The easiest and most reliable display for the DIY Modular Open Source Laptop would a USB powered portable HDMI monitor. This is the only option that is plug and play in both power and video cable, with no driver installation needed. Just connect the HDMI cable to the SBC and the USB cable to the 5V 2A USB powerbank.
The next best option is a 12V portable LCD monitor. These are commonly available as security camera monitors, photography field monitors, portable TVs, LCD panels for SBCs. These will need either a 12V 1A power supply or 5V 3A to 12V 1A DC to DC converter ($5), both of which can be provided by USB Type C powerbanks. An HDMI to VGA or HDMI to AV converter ($5) may be needed if the monitor has no HDMI input.
Another option would be to use a LVDS controller board ($30) with a laptop LCD panel (>$70) and 5V 3A to 12V 1A DC to DC converter. This is the cheapest and most flexible option, but is significantly more complicated than the previous options and may need soldering.
The last option would be to make a DIY display. With enough soldering and programming, it could be possible to create seven segment character displays from LED arrays.
>>7791 >I am also trying to port openbsd to it on spare time Tell me how that goes. From what I know, armv7 on OpenBSD has no Xenocara support.. which is a shame. Would love to see a fully-featured OpenBSD C201.
>>5794 > more of them have shown an interest in the site than /pol/lacks.
Quantity over qaulity then? Isn't that the /int*/ creed?
Spam is not free speech, it's free shit. T notion of SPEECH means ideas that resonate. **The founding fathers who coined the idea, and that of "equal rights between men of colony and men of royalty", wouldn't give two fucks about spam. They would if they were alive, waste /int*/ and all their ilk. And the Barbary pirates as well. Thanks BO for this place.
>>5789 The key to understanding /int*/ is that there's no appeasing them. If we imagine the internet as a continet. /int*/ are the nomadic tribe, you can pay tribute and become their vassal by becoming a "free board", but you can't become their ally., only submit.
As for the rest, the ones that live by rules and sweat of their brow, they'll violently rape and scourge everything, not because of ulterior motives, but because that's their way of life.
You can't rape them back, you'll be playing by their rules and thus losing. They're the ultimate villain, spawned from the depths of somethingwaful, reddit, 4chan and st.Hitler knows what other shithole.
I'm going to respond to my own shit.
Weechat has an option to take the sec password from a file or a environment variable.I currently have an alias for weechat started with that specific environment variable.
working with a developer from /librejp/, we'll made some minor adjustments on page loading and refresh. We're trying to: 1. Make sure freshly added posts at the bottom of the page have all the same bells as whistles at the posts that were there when the page loaded 2. Cut down on browser stalls when processing large pages
Let me know if you notice anything better or worse.
Please tell me if this is a lynx problem or not, so I can go bug him.
The block bypass needs to be before I begin uploading a fuckton of files. I was just uploading a big file, while doing that I posted elsewhere and completed the block bypass. After the file uploaded I am prompted to complete the block bypass, thus wasting my time.
>>5777 >>5778 True, and thank you. But, my point is, I set it whilst uploading and it still didn't work, which leads me to the assumption that it is cookie based and could have been checked upon clicking "new reply" but before actually posting/uploading. This is just inquiry though, I don't know the codebase well enough. I do still think of this is as a bug but would like to know if this should be reported to lynx or endchan.
For bandwidth, set it to your top speed or 12500 KBps (100 Mbps) and adjust the share ratio where you want it. It says >(97.66M bits per second or 31.18T bytes per month maximum) at 12500 100% but don't let that freak you out, it'll never use 31 fucking terabytes ever. Most I've seen it use in a month is ~400GB. If that's a bit much sounding, try 10% to start off with and see what your usage is like.
Also while I'm thinking about it, check your server tunnel for it's various settings, as they can affect site reachability tremendously. Tunnel count: Higher count/backup == more reliable but also more bandwidth usage.
Hop length: Lower hops == less anon and slightly less bandwidth usage but much better reliability, speed and RTT/ping time.
Backups are for when a built tunnel in the count suddenly dies, 1 or 2 of these can be handy for reliability. They aren't used otherwise and I don't think they use much bandwidth. will have to ask
If you honestly don't want much anonymity for your server (since it's hosting the same site on clearnet anyway) you could probably go for a 1 hop tunnel with 3-5 count and 1 backup. 1 hop ensures that others connecting still have their anonymity from your end while making your site faster to use and 5 count/1 backup would make for excellent reachability but potentially higher bandwidth usage due to the 6 tunnels being built.
I forget what variance does but I remember having piss poor performance :^)
With the bandwidth profile, I would try either the interactive or the bulk to see which works the best. Here I would see bulk probably working better.
lastly that I can think of, there's the "Reduce tunnel quantity when idle". This will reduce the tunnel count (but not backups) when idle. If you turn it on, this'll reduce bandwidth usage with more idleness and not affect reliability much. Very worth it to turn on.
>HIVE is a multi-platform CIA malware suite and its associated control software. The project provides customizable implants for Windows, Solaris, MikroTik (used in internet routers) and Linux platforms and a Listening Post (LP)/Command and Control (C2) infrastructure to communicate with these implants.
>The implants are configured to communicate via HTTPS with the webserver of a cover domain; each operation utilizing these implants has a separate cover domain and the infrastructure can handle any number of cover domains.
>Each cover domain resolves to an IP address that is located at a commercial VPS (Virtual Private Server) provider. The public-facing server forwards all incoming traffic via a VPN to a 'Blot' server that handles actual connection requests from clients. It is setup for optional SSL client authentication: if a client sends a valid client certificate (only implants can do that), the connection is forwarded to the 'Honeycomb' toolserver that communicates with the implant; if a valid certificate is missing (which is the case if someone tries to open the cover domain website by accident), the traffic is forwarded to a cover server that delivers an unsuspicious looking website.
>The Honeycomb toolserver receives exfiltrated information from the implant; an operator can also task the implant to execute jobs on the target computer, so the toolserver acts as a C2 (command and control) server for the implant.
>Similar functionality (though limited to Windows) is provided by the RickBobby project. See the classified user and developer guides for HIVE.
>One of the notable disclosures is that Assange will share details on the CIA's hacking tools with the tech industry before releasing them to the general public. The WikiLeaks founder said he has much more detailed information about CIA hacking techniques and will allow tech companies access so they can "develop fixes" before the information is more widely published.
Insects develop efficient antimicrobial strategies to flourish in a bacterial world. It has long been proposed that native gut microbiota is an important component of host defense; however, the responsible species have rarely been isolated to elucidate the mechanism of action. Here we show that the dominant symbiotic bacterium Enterococcus mundtii associated with the generalist herbivore Spodoptera littoralis actively secretes a stable class IIa bacteriocin (mundticin KS) against invading bacteria, but not against other gut residents, facilitating the normal development of host gut microbiota. A mundticin-defective strain lost inhibitory activity. Furthermore, purified mundticin cures infected larvae. Thus, the constitutively produced antimicrobials by native extracellular symbionts create a significant chemical barrier inside limiting invader expansion. This unique property also benefits E. mundtii itself by providing a competitive advantage, contributing to its dominance within complex microbial settings and its prevalence across Lepidoptera, and probably promotes the long-term cooperative symbiosis between both parties.

Try again. I set the mail server up on my main desktop (with my gui) as a test. I turn my computer off when I go to school. I was planning on migrating the mail server to a dedicated tor server computer but never got around to it. No one emails me anyways. I'll leave my computer on in text mode tomorrow, so you can send me something. I really think this is the answer, I mean not withstanding all the other security problems with computers.
Air gap with private key and public key ring for recipients-> encode message -> port encrypted message by floppy disc to transmision computer -> Send encrypted mail to tor mail server.
Recieve mail to tor mail server -> port encrypted message by floppy to airgapped decryption computer running in text mode. decrypt message read, in sealed room with multiple locks -> destroy traces of communication (reboot).
I think this would do it. That way you never type on the online computer, and only type and encrypt and decrypt on the air gapped computer. If both counterparties do this it should work.
Unfortunately I'm not currently doing this, my private key is also on my workstation. One day I'll impliment this strategy, probably this summer. If everyone did this protocol that would mess the NSA up big time. It wouldn't matter if your workstation was compromised, they still wouldn't get the message.
What about keeping your master key on an airgapped system and using subkeys instead of using floppy disks back and forth? You could avoid using floppies (an attack vector, albeit an uncommon one) altogether.
You still want to do the decrypts and encrypts on an airgap . Assume any computer connected to the internet has keylogging.
So if you want to use subkeys fine get a third computer. Two air-gapped computers and an online transmission computer. Decrypt and Encrypt on the transmission computer means you may have given the content away. Coppying 100Kb text files back and forth and using jails is more safe than plugging in an RJ45 cable and typing on your keyboard.
Do it my way and you're home free. They'll need physical access to your full disk encrypted system or a virus that exfiltrates bit by bit. If you only copy the encrypted text file to the A:\ drive and write a checksum or some other verification method, and have reasonabley good security on your physical location I think this is the best way.
For the time being, the only free email service I'd use is bitmessage.ch, sigaint.org, unseen.is, and cock.li. I won't recommend paid email services, but I would say that a couple of them is only worth it if you buy in bulk then stop using it after it runs out as you try to move on to any newer or better free or paid email service. Also, never forget about auti.st, and email services of the various hidden/decentralized networks like Tor, 12p, Zeronet, etc.
Cloudflare breached! If you used infinow.net to log in, it's possible that your password has been leaked. We suggest you change it, even though CloudFlare has sent us an email saying >Fortunately, your domain is not one of the domains where we have discovered exposed data in any third party caches.
We're now considering removing the cloudflare from infinow.
>>5760 I have noticed when posting with i2p it is the same blank Id that you get while posting with tor. I was wondering if you could change the i2p icon to how it is on nntpchan. Then again I just went there to find an example of this and they also have an onion for torposting. Seeing that it is blank for torposting it would make little sense to add an icon for i2p but this is what I was referring to.
>>649 I'm curious about the people who have been attacking null and his family lately. Chances are, if he gave them the userdata, they'd still keep harassing him.
He should really just "quit" "give it to someone else", and proceed with the name change, operating kiwifarms under something like "moonman333"
All things taken into consideration, I have a great deal of respect for Null, running a forum, a dieing platform, and respecting his users so much as to put his family and himself in jeopardy. Truly an amazing administrator.

We know the truth She couldn't handle the grief of losing her grandson. She always knew he was a winner since Harambe was a young chimp delivering messages about having great dreams about not letting memes just be memes. Harambe's Grandmother was the meme giver and now she has passed on. Press f to pay respects to her.
She died because her heart broke hearing the judges final sentence of Dyro the nigger killing dragon (aka Dylan Roof) Dyro was alot like harmbe she knew that more then anyone which is why she was so upset F
>>581 It really pisses me off how incompetent some parents are and in this case, an endangered gorilla was killed and the mom got away with no charges. It also doesn't help that so many people jumped on the meme bandwagon for Harambe when they wouldn't have given a shit if it never became a meme in the first place.
>>8059 So, why then you would give your users website visit info to Google if dumb captcha with fixed answer is enough (and unless someone goes after spamming your very specific site it holds true)? Why not make locally generated captcha like this website does? I dislike how exactly captcha is implemented here (see lynxchan thread, >>7569), but it is many times better than privacy-invading Google's "service".
>>8065 >So, why then you would give your users website visit info to Google
Unless users ignore our recommendation to use TBB, we are not giving any useful info to either the Tokumei site host or to Google.
In the edge case that a user trusts a Tokumei host enough to access a site over the clearnet (either the site is served over the clearnet directly or they use a gateway) but does not trust Google, you have a point.
>if dumb captcha with fixed answer is enough
For Tokumei sites where this is enough, indeed this should be used over the tokumei-recaptcha apps.
>Why not make locally generated captcha like this website does?
Because captcha is complex and Tokumei is not HN shit. This nodeshit website depends on fucking ImageMagick.
But for clearnet hosts that want to avoid pinging Google and don't care about back end complexity, sure, a local captcha app would be good.
>>8059 what the fuck. how can anyone be this stupid (assuming they're not a shill)?
captcha slider is meaningless. it is a concept made up to make customers feel good about themselves.
>I write user-friendly software with good UX No, you missed the irony. UX is not a legitimate field. It's a term thrown around by charlatans to pretend user interface design is too hard for developers and needs professional people trained in CYBER-PSYCHOLOGICAL interaction and what not. Then it provides a set of doctrines about how to design user interfaces, and the result is completely retarded shit, such as your site. At this point I can't even remember what your site looked like because it was down every time this thread got bumped, but it was twitter tier buggy unusable slow garbage.
>The material web interface also provides an easy way to install custom CSS to strip material bits you don't like. I don't know what else you want. No you don't understand, your site was shit and hardly worked at all. See post on 8ch/tech: >I had JS off initially, so clicking "SPEAK FREELY" would bring me to a page with a post form which silently fails. Going again with JS, if you look really hard (or I suppose smart phone users might notice it right away), there's a pencil button at the bottom right. But then it still silently fails. I even tried the .onion domain and same result.
>reCAPTCHA *is* easy for end users. Many just need to click on a check box. Yes, users who use the same cookies and IP for months at a time. When you tie personal identity to every transaction you make on the internet, captcha is redundant. You do not need Google to implement such a trivial feature. 4chan had this feature a decade before the G.
>>8067 >Because captcha is complex and Tokumei is not HN shit.
Does anybody know what happened to serax? I was using to as my default searcher (even though it is slower than most) but it seems to be down. I'm not sure what to use in the meantime, what do you use? Unrelated image.
We recommend that you don't use DuckDuckGo if you seek a search engine that values your privacy. There's no confirmed proof that DuckDuckGo is violating your privacy, but there are some very suspicious things, however, that make certain other search engines far superior in that regard.
Gabriel Weinberg, the founder of DuckDuckGo, used to run the Names Database. This was a website that aimed to connect people who had lost contact by gathering lots and lots of e-mail addresses. Getting access could be done by either paying money, or submitting lots of e-mail addresses of other people. Since the service revolved around gathering personal information, it is very suspicious for Gabriel Weinberg to start a business that is privacy-oriented.
DuckDuckGo used to set a tracking cookie, even though they claimed they didn't. This was done by a third party they cooperate with, which means that it wasn't necessarily intentional, but if it's unintentional, it shows a worrying lack of care.
DuckDuckGo is based in the US. This makes it really easy for the NSA to compromise it. If it were based in the EU, for example, the NSA wouldn't have the legal power to force them to log everything without telling anyone. This wouldn't guarantee privacy, but it would make it a lot more plausible. Instead, they're based in the US, which means that the NSA can do whatever they want with them. There are secure search engines that are not based in the US.
I have a whole free week on my hands and i want to make most of it by installing a fresh new distro. Since i value /tech/'s opinion, tought i'd ask you guys.
Been using Linux Mint fot a year, but now i want a distro that is clean and not full of software i don't need (like Mint is). Can't decide between Debian or Arch, help me maybe? I kinda have a life, so if Arch is really that high maintenance, it's out of the picture.
>>7876 Sure, Linux has reasons to be larger while sticking to the same philosophy, but not to this extent. It's also much larger because it's so filled with features. Its size is also the result of its very different design philosophy. And I don't think that's a bad thing, but I do think that it invalidates arguments that are just "this one other part of the system doesn't follow the unix philosophy either, therefore it's shit".
Also Manjaro offers official OpenRC support and it's developed as a user-friendly distro while offering more or less the same power as archlinux. The core team clearly lacks an understanding in security, but it's the best we have that has the potential to grow as ubuntu/mint and "reach the masses"
>>7691 >>7692 >>7695 >They will do whatever they can to make sure that Gentoo, Slackware, Void, and Alpine have the worst time possible by not solely supporting systemd. After red hat fully takes control with systemd, there is no need for different distros, because basically they will be all the same but with a different logo.
This is the main reason why systemd is bad for linux.
