I was using archive.is to get a better view on sites that rely on javascript and now they've enabled CloudFlare which require javascript.

Is there any alternative to it ?

does anyone know the archive.is operators? someone needs to tell them to remove the pointless captcha (I hear this can be done by unblocking the country T1 (tor) in cuckflare settings). they probably don't know it's enabled because they never visited their site through tor (or maybe they're morons and actually believe the captcha accomplishes anything more than blocking legitimate users, i don't know)

How difficult would it be to archive clearweb webpages onto an onion website?Zeronet? I2P? Not using archive.is or web.archive.org/save/ from tor rather making a tor-based clearweb archive? That would be ideal for the archival of information to diversify.It is a natural response to the increasing allowence to censor news based on subjective standards of credibility.

Anonymous 02/19/2017 (Sun) 18:48:29 [Preview] No. 8048 del
that's not such a bad idea actually, but you'd have to specify which websites you want to archive, because you can't just scrap the whole clearnet and put it in an onion archive

Is there any more news on the Jacob Appelbaum situation? It seems like he's disappeared off of the face of the Earth after the allegations. I find the fact that multiple witnesses have come out against the stories that were told on their behalf disturbing.

>Website comes out with a bunch of rape allegations
>Appelbaum denounces the allegations
>Appelbaum is effectively exiled from the free software community despite the lack of a trial
>multiple witnesses come out saying that the allegations made in their name were false, or at best heavily misinterpreted
>Even if all of the witnesses declare that Jake is innocent, his reputation is forever destroyed

Scary stuff.

This from the article above is also true, everyone knows the Assange thing is bullshit. Now that he's a cold corpse, it's time to admit that he just did "the boyfriend maneuver" and only faggots would object because they have no interest in normal things like pussy. Assange RIP, may have been a Zio tool but he will shine chrome, eternal, for his love of midnight snack. Fully allowed within the lines play.

I searched the blockchain when that happened but found nothing. The only thing that still bothers me is the idea that the pre-commit hashes were for the "decrypted data", but that's known to be an inferior technique, as describe in both https://stribika.github.io/2015/01/04/secure-secure-shell.html (under "Message authentication codes") and https://lwn.net/Articles/681616/. I can't imagine Assange fucking up like that. It haunts me to this day.

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.

is it really fair to compare LOC of linux(that runs on virtually anything relevent these days) to comfy days of PDP?

linux kernel code's quality VARIES.

For portion where linus himself and experienced devs invest most of their time tend to be high quality software with lots of technical gems.

It's just vendor specific parts where codes of rather questionable quality get introduced.

Small companies throwing in whatever crap that happens to compile and hipsters who wants title of 'linux developer' spoils community and ultimately, kernel itself.

Theo might be autist but at least he applies autism for better quality most of the time.

I'm not sure what's Linus' plan with kernel anymore...what is he trying to focus on with this dumpster fire.

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"

Oh great, let's take Jabber, and shove it into HTML!
Federated systems are great from a technical standpoint, and nerds like me will always use them just fine. But if we want encryption to actually move out of the hands of the massives after only nerds having it for 50 years then it needs to be on fully distributed systems. Dealing with servers and configuration does not make any sense to normal people. I've tried to get my friends to use Jabber but when the "app" is called Jitsi and the sign up form is at "hot-chili.net" and add account menu says "XMPP" and I tell them to add me at [email protected] then they get confused and give up. The app, the protocol, the website are all just one amorphous thing to tech illiterate people. Which is to say, everyone who is not us.
Something like Tox is way better.

Internet Censorship Anonymous 02/08/2017 (Wed) 01:52:49 [Preview] No. 7971 [Reply]
If you are an American, you can thank these two senators (John Mccain and Fritz Hollings) for censoring a large portion of the internet and preventing people from gaining knowledge and learning.

>"Schools and libraries subject to CIPA may not receive the discounts offered by the E-rate program unless they certify that they have an Internet safety policy that includes technology protection measures. The protection measures must block or filter Internet access to pictures that are: (a) obscene; (b) child pornography; or (c) harmful to minors (for computers that are accessed by minors). Before adopting this Internet safety policy, schools and libraries must provide reasonable notice and hold at least one public hearing or meeting to address the proposal."

It is because of them that filtering software such as IBoss exists and why schools have google integrated within their computers to force students to use their services and to use a filtered search.


How does this make you feel?

I'm not for censorship but i get what he's saying, school networks are for school and not for playing games, watching porn etc. And the reason why they force students to use Chrome is likely that the lazy admin isn't foolish enough to require users to use IE, and makes use of Windows GPO to set up stuff like proxies and custom certificates (Chrome uses Windows' settings, Firefox doesn't trust Windows and has its own way of configuring this).

Back when I was in high school 4chan was blocked for CP. I thought it was pretty funny. iBoss can be bypassed if you manage to get into the default iboss account on the school system; in mine, I just searched it up on the active directory and guessed the password. Administrators almost had me arrested lmao

Either way, fuckit. It only applies to school kids and even then only 8 hours of the day. For computer dorks it provides a fun game of trying to break it. As long as they don't extend it out to the "real world" and make a filter for all ISPs, I don't exactly give a shit
