Tor Services Anonymous 09/24/2019 (Tue) 02:40:45 No.237 [Reply]
Is there something like neocities or txti.es for Tor websites (and/or other darkwebs, like I2P, Freenet, Zeronet, but Tor in particular)? I'd like to start up my own simple site, but I don't have a permanent server.

Pardon if I'm asking something retarded here.

>>2052 >On Tor everyone can start a hidden service on any computer that supports Tor and be instantly accesible within the network. sounds compelling, what's the catch? if it was that easy/good surely it would be yuge by now.
>>2061 Well the instant you have encrypted traffic over non-standard ports you get flagged by glownigs. jews and mormons run NSA, for the most part.
>>2061 TOR is huge, plenty of thrid world normies use it to bypass regional blocks to facebook and twitter for example.
>>2062 lol, why would that matter? fuck the kikes.
>>2115 I agree with the sentiment, but it's important to have a proper threat profile. Hosting a server is always a pain compared to throwing a site on someone else's, plus the stigma of tor and the difficult web addresses (there needs to be some URL shortening to make them easier to deal with for normalfags or even just writing down on paper). I think Tor needs to grow before the whole internet becomes a walled garden (which it pretty much is), so I hope you continue with the project.

Tech Hardware Discussion Thread 1: Never buy HP products edition Anonymous 03/10/2020 (Tue) 22:42:54 No.1973 [Reply]
Discussion for all things Hardware. Buys, Wants and recommendations. I obtained a HP Probook 64xxb recently however the machine bios was locked along with the OS selection, I researched for about 30 minutes and found leaked OEM bios restore keys along with the functionality to enter bios reset and flash mode insert OEM key it was easy as fuck even a child could do this. What i did on probook was doing a combo of f10 pushes to then install Linux. It's fucking pathetic to sell such a glaring factory backdoored product like this and these were marketed to the professional sector. I'm also considering purchasing a LG 27GL850-B for a nice 4k screen, stingy price but something tells me with china going down and innolux closing shop thanks to corona sama panels may not be properly available for some time. FREE Recommendation: TPM chip functionality. It can be added to LUKS and even used as auth for such things as servers and on system PC adding layer of security to any filesystem. Very useful and very overlooked little chip. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=NFQ22SBlejk

>>2025 Thanks pretty good rec interesting those are about the same price range as the ones i listed. And as you said with studio monitors it's mandatory to direct them to listener headpsace. Wall mounts are def optimal but not necessary, you can simply put something under the speakers to lift them up and direct them.

>>2036 Not too much a fan of wall mounting, L-shaped stands are the best, really. I'm buying a pair of 8030 with pic n°2 in two months. Using pic n°1 with Yamaha HS7, currently; they're quite good, with extremely low hiss, but I want the cream of the cream to match my ColorEdge. If you're shopping around those prices, Adam's T5V is good too (they provide data: https://www.adam-audio.com/en/t-series/t5v/#technical-data), Tannoy's Gold 5/7 is a cheap way to go coaxial, as is Fluid Audio's FX50 (you even get a DSP based crossover!).

modern CS courses don't really touch on the deeper philosophical issues related to AI. In place of the theological/philosophical we've been forced to take "computer ethics" courses taught by sociology/humanities faculty (people that have difficulty getting email to work). This is how high iq computer programmers get infected with the "google/marxist mind-virus". Look at government grants to AI research, all of it is for rancid word-salads of cultural marxist ideology (under new lingo) milking the commercialization hype-train of big-data. For every "machine learning applied to pandemic prevention" research project there is 10 "why AI is racist" papers. SICP had students questioning the limitations of computation in their first year of CS. The new generation generally believes computers are limitless machines and will ridicule said textbook.

Hi! About 2 days ago I created a Tor service that allows you to get your own imageboard. You can pick either Vichan or LynxChan. You will need to register, but it's free. No email verification needed, only a non-JS captcha. You can create up to 2 imageboards. You will get a REAL imageboard with full control. No CP is allowed btw. This service is the first of its kind for imageboards. It's tor only. >tor address http://ibhostr63abm7764.onion

>>1745 4chan blocks some ranges and some IPs but if they blocked EVERY range nobody on the planet would be able to post without a 4chan Gold 10bux Pass. That said, it's like 1/1000 IPs that aren't banned on 4chan. Glowniggers, trannies and skiddies will walk through an entire service and get every IP permabanned or range blocked.

Meta-Machine Code Anonymous 09/25/2019 (Wed) 03:50:17 No.269 [Reply]
I had a thread on 8chan's /tech/ for this program of mine and, now that I've found this place, I may as well make one here.

Featured in the image is my Meta-Machine Code targeted at CHIP-8; on display in that is a Rule 30 program I've written in CHIP-8. This is what I consider an ideal machine code development tool that I envisioned years back and have by now breathed life into.

An assembler is a lesser tool, I believe, lacking an intimate knowledge of what it targets and being a batch tool; my MMC is interactive and asks the programmer to recall little about the machine code being used, as it will explain in suitable detail all instructions it knows of; further, as programming is accomplished through instructions bound to keys, rather than to mnemonics, it's easy to simply press keys and answer questions until one learns what the keys are bound to. Invalid instructions won't be generated; an assembler will simply fail with an error. I've more recently come to believe the tool could have pedagogical worth, as one can simply learn the tool as it's used, which isn't reasonable with an assembler and its assembler language.

Here's some articles I've written concerning this tool of mine, which will give you details and demonstrations:

The version currently available is old and out-of-date compared to what I'm using. The program is in a state where only I can really use it, for a variety of reasons. I've been wanting to write an Ada reimplementation, but I've found that the idea isn't nearly structured enough to the degree Ada requires and the Common Lisp implementation I've is a mess I've been reluctant to work on.

Simply put, Common Lisp is that language I'm most skilled with and the flexibility it provided allowed me to hang myself with tangential considerations. Wanting for a proper customization mechanism that wasn't Lisp, I thought a machine code was an appropriate mechanism to customize a machine code tool and the least arbitrary choice; as CHIP-8 lacks the power to do such a thing, however, I designed a Meta-CHIP-8 and the current implementation of the tool is a shell around this environment, with the personality of the tool being written in Meta-CHIP-8. This is, of course, a mess.

My current plan is to rewrite the Common Lisp once more in a more structured fashion and lacking Meta-CHIP-8 and I expect after that I'll have the structure necessary to translate the Common Lisp to Ada. I can still work on the primitives the Ada version needs and will use, but the overall organization of the packages and whatnot lacked the structure I thought it should have. I've also written my own terminal library in Common Lisp and this is something I've not yet published in Ada, which is another requirement down the way.

In any case, feel free to ask me any questions concerning this or other works of mine and I'll do my best to provide an answer. Now, the argument could be made this doesn't deserve a thread, but I thought this place could benefit from the activity and I'm suitably interested in it.

>>1559 You seem to believe I was unaware of SHA-1 being unsuitable for its purpose before I implemented it; this isn't the case. Firstly, SHA-1 is still in-use. Secondly, I figured I would implement all SHA over time and SHA-1 was a good starting point. I agonized over the design of my SHA-1 in Ada and this influenced the other two implementations; further, the basic shape of the design is very suited to the later SHAs. Do you not program purely for the learning and fun of it; the implementations of the SHAs in APL are practically worthless, but good fun to write and document. >I had to stop soon because of too much braindamage. Your "ideal machine text" is called entropy encoding, except that entropy encodingis language agnostic. This ideal machine text system of mine uses words as the fixed-length unit and not characters. It's not entropy encoding, but you didn't read enough to realize this. >>1692 Common Lisp resembles historical Lisps moreso than Scheme, obviously as it was designed to be the common Lisp. I like Common Lisp, the separate function and value spaces, and I heavily use macros for my work. I don't mind writing my libraries myself. If you ask a more detailed question, I'll give a more detailed answer. On that note, I've written a Common Lisp Style Document recently; feel free to give your thoughts on this as well: http://verisimilitudes.net/2020-02-14
>>1785 I mean from a consistency and elegance point of view. Both Lisp and Scheme stem from lambda calculus but Lisp departs way further and seem to complicate the syntax uselessly (e.g. ' and quote). To someone who never touched Lisp but use Tcl and did a bit of Emacs Lisp, Lisp vs Scheme distantly looks like C++ vs C; well, if you ignore the timeline and squint your eyes really hard.
>>1804 The Lisp family doesn't truly derive from Lambda Calculus. Without venturing to get an exact quote or to doublecheck, John McCarthy didn't understand all of Church's paper and used the name lambda for some reason I don't recall. The quote shorthand exists in Scheme and Common Lisp, among others. Common Lisp isn't a Lisp which is fearful of becoming more complex to simplify itself. You may think Common Lisp is complicated, but in many cases providing what it does makes things simpler, if only because there's a standard way to achieve such things. By having a mechanism for conditional compilation through #- and #+, as an example, there need not be multiple and incompatible solutions to the problem. Providing a solution to a problem, rather than ignoring the problem's existence, is valuable. I enjoy that I can easily test my libraries and programs in multiple implementations, rather than being tied to a small number and accidentally using nonstandard code where it's avoidable.
>>1813 Then the language failed. It should give you the minimum set of tools to solve all your problems by building more tools, not the world's biggest toolbox. That's why I think Tcl's uplevel is the best thing to ever happen.
I released the reimplementation on the third anniversary of the announcement: http://verisimilitudes.net/2020-07-07 This post doesn't bump, as I'm not quite certain it's worthwhile to do so. I'll still check this thread periodically for replies, however, so feel free to prove me wrong.
