Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

Welcome to /tech/ THE RULES: 1. Please spoiler all porn and gore 2. Talk about something actually related to /tech/nology 3. Have fun! Required reading http://cryptome.org/2012/07/gent-forum-spies.htm Beginner Info If you would like to try out GNU/Linux because of https://itvision.altervista.org/why-windows-10-sucks.html, you can do one of the following: 0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine (preferably using KVM or Oracle VirtualBox for newfriends). 1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything (keep in mind that the performance of live distros might be very different than from distro that was booted from your HDD, as most distros are loaded in RAM and don't include the proprietary drivers for NVIDIA GPUs or up-to-date Mesa libraries in their isos). 2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows (make sure to install Windows first, as it can "replace" GRUB or other UNIX bootloaders, and troubleshooting of Windows replacing your bootloader of choice might be painful for people that just started learning about the Linux kernel) 3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux (you really shouldn't do this, if you don't know what you're putting yourself into, see: https://itvision.altervista.org/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html).

FOSS SJW Blacklist Anonymous 09/22/2019 (Sun) 07:25:12 No.219 [Reply] [Last]
The recent shitstorm about Stallman revealed more bad actors within the Linux/FOSS community and as developers and users we should fight to regain the civilization we built with our blood and tears from the encroachment of destructive "cancel culture" madmen.

We need to start by making of list of organizations and projects that are thoroughly infested with the rot. Avoid contributing effort and support to them and eventually they will crumble inwards as internecine group politics is no replacement for hard technical knowhow.

I'll start by listing a few:

Red Hat/IBM (Fedora, Centos)
PulseAudio (Red Hat/IBM)
SystemD (Red Hat/IBM)

>>1458 That, and Unity was barely-usable clusterfuck made by Apple fanboys. I switched to Xubuntu then and there. More to the point, it was suddenly dropped in as the primary environment, not introduced as an option. This says something too. Mac was obviously intended for those with longing for Big Brother who "knows better". Being developers gave them a delusion that they became little Big Brothers too, maybe? >>1407 It's not rotten through yet (for one, no snide shits in support yet, like it was in Mozilla, those who sit on bug reports are cool people), but you see what the management is, and fish rots from the head down, so... matter of time.

Avoid Rust if possible. The entire project suffers from SJW/CoC bullshit and it has been mostly, if not completely subverted by large corporations (Amazon) just like Linux.

are there still any traditional forums with activity that don't suck, or is the old web dead?
6 posts omitted.
>>3291 Only forum I can think of that is still active and isn't managed by faggots/trannies is kiwifarms, although I don't browse it a lot since if you're not a lot into the lolcow type of hobby there's not much to do, other than the tech section. Technically not a forum, but I also found an under development future forum about the old net on neocities (tranny hole in general) called aethernetwork or something, the good thing is that unlike most neocities users the guy doesn't seem to be a fag/tranny, in fact he seems to be (discreetly) an anon; but considering the braindead policies of neocities and whatnot, it is logical he doesn't show it too much. But other than that, and although I wish it wasn't, the old web is pretty much dead yeah.
The Federal government wants to force everyone off anonymous sites that aren't censored. They're taking out chat rooms and forums. Most of the people that would have been here had their internet connection redirected to mirrors of sites that just have bot spam that resembles actual posts. They are pushing "free speech" sites with the caveat that they require identifying information so you can be targeted by terrorists of the state or groups they protect if you become too good at changing people's minds and hurt their plot to manufacture consent.

BitChan Beta v0.9.0 Release Anonymous 11/15/2020 (Sun) 19:38:41 No.3162 [Reply]
The BitChan beta just got released and is looking for people to try it out. It's a decentralized imageboard that runs on top of BitMessage. You can create and completely control your own public or private board, globally moderate as an owner, add admins who can also globally moderate, moderate your own instance locally as a user, upload literally anything with size limits theoretically up to 100gb. Uploads can be sent purely over BitMessage or you can choose to use a hosting service. Uploads that use hosting are subjected to heavy duty protection: every file is zipped, encrypted/password protected, the zip's header is removed and random chunks of the file are removed before being uploaded. The removed parts are hidden in the PGP encrypted message that's sent over BitMessage. Once the upload is received the zip is put back together again, decrypted, unzipped and displayed in the thread. 100% of BitChan traffic happens over tor. Private boards prevent posting from all but explicitly added IDs. The permitted ID list can be edited by the owner at any point to include new IDs or restrict old ones. On public boards any ID can post until it is banned, but because of how BitMessage works, you can always just make another ID. Communications on every board are PGP encrypted. This means that even if someone somehow guessed the board name on BitMessage (basically impossible for reasons I won't go into here), they would be unable to read anything without also having the BitChan PGP symmetric password. Owners can globally change CSS, banners and wordfilters. Owners can even wipe a board if they want. You can join and create as many boards as you want. There's also a prototype steganography thread running alongside of every normal thread. The steg thread shows decrypted steg from jpg/pngs. There are also public and private lists. Lists are just collections of links to boards or other lists. Owners can do much of the same moderation, CSS changes etc. as they can do on boards. They can be updated and edited after their creation. BitChan is fully dockerized so it is cross-OS compatible, but has only been tested with Ubuntu 20.04 and the most recent version of Whonix. I could go on about all the features (there's a lot more), but I just wanted to give you a taste. It's surprisingly fast for text only messages that total around 20kb or less and using hosting services for file attachments, taking usually only a few seconds to a minute depending on how many people are on your part of the BitMessage network. https://github.com/813492291816/BitChan

If the restrict act passes the government can ban any technology they want. If you access banned technology you will face up to a million dollar fine and 20 years imprisonment. The RESTRICT Act is not limited to just TikTok. It gives the government authority over all forms of communication domestic or abroad and grants powers to “enforce any mitigation measure to address any risk” to national security now and in any “potential future transaction” This includes the possibility of banning Tor/ I2P / VPN or even foreign CHAN sites in the name of "National security" under threat of fine/imprisonment for anyone caught using them. https://www.congress.gov/bill/118th-congress/senate-bill/686/text?s=1&r=15 Cosponsors / date Sen.

>>3436 This is like the draconian shit they pulled with the patriot act after 9/11 but this time its for the internet.
>>3436 I'd sure like to know A) how many of these are kikes or cryptokikes B) how many of them are vocal supporters of war with China. Clearly, (((they))) are positioning things to attack the based Chinese, and this move would be a necessary precursor to SHUT IT DOWN if the uppity goyim can be distracted away from (((Netflix))) long enough to mention online, "Hey maybe we shouldn't be getting into an all-out nuclear armageddon with the chinks, even if they are The Great Evil(tm)?'' They certainly fucked up their estimations on their proxy war with based Russia, so this edition maybe they are angling beforehand to keep the niggercattle silent?
