>>9866 But if I manually set sizes in the font config, how will that affect things like UI scaling? Actually, now that I look, there's a mismatch between my set font size in XCFE's GUI settings menus (set to 11pt) and what actually displays for English (14pt). Changing the number in that menu does change font size, for both English and Japanese (with Japanese always being a little larger), but the number itself is inaccurate.

Hydrus Network General #5 Anonymous Board volunteer 09/14/2022 (Wed) 22:07:14 No. 9763 [Reply] [Last]
This is a thread for releases, bug reports, and other discussion for the hydrus network software. The hydrus network client is an application written for Anon and other internet-fluent media nerds who have large image/swf/webm collections. It browses with tags instead of folders, a little like a booru on your desktop. Advanced users can share tags and files anonymously through custom servers that any user may run. Everything is free, privacy is the first concern, and the source code is included with the release. Releases are available for Windows, Linux, and macOS. I am the hydrus developer. I am continually working on the software and try to put out a new release every Wednesday by 8pm EST. Past hydrus imageboard discussion, and these generals as they hit the post limit, are being archived at >>>/hydrus/ . If you would like to learn more, please check out the extensive help and getting started guide here: https://hydrusnetwork.github.io/hydrus/

What's your workflow for tagging personally curated collections of files, anons? I never use any mass downloaders. All my files going into Hydrus were at some point manually selected by me. My tagging process is, >Choose a folder to start tagging, preferably under 500 files >Go through every image that could exist on a booru and verify it via SauceNao >Use url downloader every time there's a hit >Import the folder into Hydrus while mass tagging all files with at least 1 tag based on the folder it came from >Delete inferior dupes and make sure the booru tags are moved to superior ones if needed >Archive all url imports that need no further tagging as their dupes are deleted >Add a sparse few personal tags not from boorus to url imports if needed, then archive them >Hide deleted files in folder import >Choose a trait common to many files and start multi-tagging groups of files based on this trait. >Repeat until there are no common traits >Go through every file individually and add tags that are less common, archiving each file that's done being tagged This is the most efficient process I've come up with so far. I can mostly skip tagging for anything that exists in a booru. Picking a trait common to many files and going through the whole set just looking for the presence of that trait makes sure I don't forget it for chunks of files, and allows me to semi-mass tag, which really speeds things up. I was originally doing all the tags for a single file at once, but then I was going through files one at a time, and I'd quite often forget one of the things I was looking for, or discover a new common trait to look out for and tag. This meant a lot of backtracking through images I thought I had finished tagging, and had already archived.
>>9880 >Is there a way to directly convert one namespace into another? I asked a similar question, and I think the answer was "not yet". Simplest solution, go through all images with the artist namespace, search for a particular artist, add the artist tag under the creator namespace for all images, delete the artist tag under the artist namespace for all images, repeat the last 3 steps until the artist namespace is eliminated. >before running into the problem that some files don't really have artists You don't have to add an artist namespace tag. You could just keep using artist: for artists, and creator: for anything with a "non-artist" creator. For similar such namespaces, I recommend going into File -> Options -> Tag Presentation and setting them to the same color.
>>9882 >You don't have to add an artist namespace tag. You could just keep using artist: for artists, and creator: for anything with a "non-artist" creator. I know that's an option, but I'd prefer consistency, and there's no reason not to put artists under creator: too if I can. >For similar such namespaces, I recommend going into File -> Options -> Tag Presentation and setting them to the same color. I have already done that, since leaving the artist tags with the default colour made it harder to see them.

Almost every normalfaggot internet service requiring working, hard to change, much more personally identifiable than plain IP address, phone number to register. And to periodically provide as "random checks" to keep working and not lock you out of your data without prior warning is normal and widely accepted business practice in Muttland as of 2020's. Requiring ID card or SSN to register for such services would be literal commiefascism and would never fly in Muttland, normalfags in revolt. How did it get this absurdly cucked in Land of the Free.

Because the vast mass of people are lazy and/or ignorant, and the remaining people who are neither are either engineers or market drivers. Engineers keep the lights on and typically are not independently wealthy; market drivers reinvest the technology and science back into the market to create a captive market as services (non-ethical software). Furthermore, a majority of the front-running FOSS projects of the last decade have been co-opted by FAGMANN companies or destroyed by entryism by Rob Pike-alikes with awful fucking ideas. A few neckbeards keep any sort of FREE AS IN FREEDOM web alive by self-hosting and writing good notes, but this is seriously less than 1% of people and it will never tap into the auto-amplifying feedback loops which market mechanisms work on. Consider the number of people developing "open source software" on iBads/fagbooks working for tech firms, vs the number of people willing to demand FOSS software and actualize on it: the number of engineers willing to pay the actual price of freedom (lower convenience, lower interoperability, more time investment, actual money for hosting fees) is low and will always remain low. One can do their part by refusing to buy into it, by instead choosing to self-host services, and to make our methods known, but it only really goes so far. Ethical software will remain esoteric knowledge (as will understanding of computers, oddly enough for the same reasons.)

Fuck phone numbers. There was a time about 20 years ago when people thought it would not be needed in a few years, after evertything went online. It was a sign of early adopter to not have boomercell any more. Now it has become a pseudo-ID card to tie your real identity to your normalfag online activities, and de facto requirement that sure as fuck isn't going anywhere. At least I still live in a region where anonymous prepaid is still allowed, for now (outside US). Do americans have anonymous prepaids / burner phones any more? It's a tiny proportion of countries that allow it by now. Vast majority requires you to present real life ID to activate a prepaid subscription.

Use electron beam physics to make your own 3D Metal Printer. Support this open source project Anonymous 04/05/2022 (Tue) 19:58:55 No. 8038 [Reply]
Hello! My name is Agustin Cruz. I'm making a 3D Metal Printer for making parts with titanium and other metals. Is a low cost, Open source project, so everyone can make their own 3D Metal Printer. This project have an extreme affinity in philosophy with Monero and would not be possible without your help. Making 3D printers affordable can help decentralize production of various mass produced items. The goal is to make 3D Metal Printing more affordable to the general public, hospitals, small institutions, organizations and companies around the world. Specifically for developing and low income countries. This project fills a gap that no open hardware successfully fills. 3D Metal Printing is an impactful tool. Making it more accessible will democratize science, engineering and empower people. This low-cost hardware will be able to accelerate innovations in and lower barriers to scientific research. This printer uses an electron beam to selectively melt each layer of metal powder, causing the powder particles to fuse together. After one layer is complete, the build platform is moved down one layer in height. The re-coater comes in again with a fresh layer of powder, and the electron beam starts to induce the fusion of powder particles, causing the new layer to form. This process is repeated until the entire part is finished, making a solid metal part. This is what I do fulltime. Doing all this takes a lot of time and effort. Now the project is opening to the community inside a crowdfunding model. The design, tests, updates, will be shared so I can receive some support and continue working 100% in this project I made a Patreon, if you want to support my work: https://www.patreon.com/3dmetalprinter I also created a Bitcoin and Monero address. They are also in the Patreon site.

Battery is the same as a Samsung j700 and extremely cheap. >muh touch screen Pine64 is developing two keyboard cases. One is a clamshell PDA style, and the other is a slide out kb like the n900. They integrate directly into the phone since they will replace the backplate. >muh peripherals It has a 3.5mm headphone jack, which doubles as a UART port. It also has a set of pogo pins on the back that exposes an I2C bus. Charging is done through USB-C which also doubles as display out and OTG. >muh shady company Pin64 is not a company as such. It's a community run project where an entrepreneur from HK supplies hardware, and the community gets to buy it at very low cost and do whatever they want. They donate much of their earnings to open source projects, and use the rest to develop new devices. >full specs and more info https://www.pine64.org/pinephone/ >wiki

How hard would it be to make a functioning imageboard (or textboard) using IPFS and OrbitDB/GUN, or Hypercore/Dat? It would be immune to deplatforming by hosting providers (and DNS providers depending on how it's addressed). https://ipfs.io/ https://orbitdb.org/ https://github.com/amark/gun / https://gun.eco/ https://hypercore-protocol.org/ (formally https://www.datprotocol.com/) There's two chans on zeronet but you have to make an ID to use them

Made a bit of progress on the overall design concept as well as implementation on the orbitchan project. Here you can see two catalog pages. The left is the traditional view served by the central server as you would see accessing an orbitchan (or vanilla jschan) catalog page. On the right we have a page generated and served by the local peer node, that gets all of its data over IPFS. There's some missing elements (including CSS) but I think highlights what's going on to an extent. Also released the basic foundation of the peer node server if anyone wants to mess with it: https://gitgud.io/threshold862543/orbitchan-peer

Kik and similar over TOR? Anonymous 09/18/2022 (Sun) 04:38:34 No. 9801 [Reply]
How would one go about setting up a machine to talk on Kik over TOR without compromising anonymity? I'm sure others would be curious about Telegram and similar chat apps. Simply put, with all the surveillance capitalism and in particular, data hoarding practices by China and other threat actors, how does one reduce ones risk profile while still being able to enjoy their time online?
