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).

Post Notifier Anonymous 03/16/2024 (Sat) 19:45:17 No.3519 [Reply]
I'm looking for a way to get notifications when posts are made on all my favorite imageboards as a way to A) Discourage myself from spending hours aimlessly lurking dozens of sites and finding maybe one or two new posts, while I have stuff I really should be doing. And B) Encourage activity on these places by being able to respond promptly. I want these notifications delivered to my phone, because I spend most of my time outside. I know /whitelist/ on Junkuchan has an RSS and an Atom feed, but I don't think most boards do. If there's some app that already does this that would be cool, but it needs to work for any IB. I've tried out some IB browsers but they only work on a handful of boards, and never the ones I actually use, and with the current state of IBs to rely solely on some guy, who's probably knee-deep in a computer science major, and working on 6 other projects, to learn about every new IB I like and get it on their app doesn't seem practical. And besides, I don't need a IB browser, just something that notifies me when a post is made. If this is something I'd have to make myself, I'm willing to do that, and if so, I'd love to be pointed in the right direction(s). I'm not particularly learned on computers or programming, but I've always been able to mash out anything that I set my mind to.
>>3519 >>3519 You could do this yourself by scraping the catalogs of the boards you care about. It's pretty easy, the only problem is different sites will be slightly different so you'll have to tweak the code for each one. That's why the apps you've tried don't work for every IB. I'll show you how you could do this site as an example though. Load up the catalog ( https://alogs.space/tech/catalog.html ) and either use Inspect Element or look at the page source to see how the html is laid out for the posts. On this site each post has a div container with the class "catalogCell". The cell for your post looks like this: <div class="catalogCell"> <a class="linkThumb" data-filemime="image/jpeg" href="/tech/res/3519.html"><img loading="lazy" src="/.media/t_521cc4fa7782f2124436653ee6b072f1f70c4de3df51c0ce23fb44cfcafa6d3f"></a> <p class="threadStats"> R: <span class="labelReplies">0</span> / I: <span class="labelImages">0</span> / P: <span class="labelPage">1</span> </p> <p> <span class="labelSubject">Post Notifier</span> </p> <div class="divMessage">I'm looking for a way to get notifications when posts are made on all my favorite imageboards as a way to...</div> </div>

mailing lists still kicking
Recently I noticed slashdot was still around. But they have taken away the ability to create new accounts. So it is just a one way advertising platform that doesn’t want your input. Maybe the people still posting there are mostly robots.
Any ones that are still left are very insular and run by turboautist like the webring. They are sadly a closed system with little way to make newer users.
gemini://midnight.pub is alright. In general, though, you're going to have to be O.K. with slow activity.

Controller Issues Anonymous 08/29/2020 (Sat) 10:46:35 No.3047 [Reply]
I have recently bought an 8BitDo SN30 Pro+ controller after it had been shilled to hell and back and it was pretty comfortable to play with, but I'm getting some issues with diagonal inputs with the analog sticks. More specifically, according to Windows 7 patented controller settings screen, I can't seem to get the cross in any of the four corners, no matter how hard I try or what settings I change using 8BitDo's software. Updated firmware doesn't seem to make a difference. More specifically, I'm having trouble when playing with emulated games that use wide and angled movements, think Crash Team Racing. I can play it no problem but it won't turn all the way left or right in tight corners for some reasons. Is there a way to achieve that sweet corner movement, or is my controller just defective? It's such a joke that a Linq cheap PS3 controller can do what a 40 dollarydoos controller can't.
I have two sn30s and never had any software/firmware issues but the build quality seems wildly inconsistent. I'm not a big gamer in fact I've never worn a controller out before even as a teen playing hundreds of hours of ff7, thps3 etc on psx with a dual shock controller and the first sn30s I have had at least 100 hours on it and it's in great condition... The second one has less than 100 hours and the right joystick rubber rim has already torn off and one of the buttons is stiff and does not press/depress freely depending which angle or pressure you press it with. The sn30+appears to be identical to sn30 with a dual shock bezel so I would be very wary. Any future product I buy from them will come with a warranty either from 8bd if offered or a 3rd party, again, if possible. This might be a controller mechanics issue masquerading as a firmware issue now that I think about it

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

>>3086 I take it the goal isn't so much to exclude phoneposters but retards who very frequently use phones. In which case I concur with simply checking whether JS is enabled or not. Can be as simple as a line of code deleting the entire document body. Disabling JS isn't hard but it'll filter at least 99% of retards. You can take it further with CSS abuse but there's ways around it too, including "desktop mode". t. Phonefagging

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.
