>>1704 At least recently DDG gotten much better about that sort of trivia stuff. It has a full calculator that it will automatically display and run "11 / 7" or whatever you put. As well as unit conversions, and a few times it's pulled up the wikipedia article (on the side) when I searched something, or the dictionary entry if you search a single word.

Budget storage with tapes in 2020 Anonymous 12/18/2020 (Fri) 20:38:35 No. 2034 [Reply]
I've got a lot of stuff I want to have archived on mediums that will last a long time just sitting around. I'm currently looking at LTO tapes, likely LTO-5 so I can use LTFS on Linux. I'm sort of skimming around ebay to find a cheap drive. Has anyone here ever used tapes and know what would be accessible for a relatively decent desktop? I'm mostly looking for externals as I don't think my case has support for front facing drives, but I do see some trays where a CD drive would be on an older device. For context, this is primarily for a small business's software dev, raw assets, and records down the line. Along side, I'll set some tapes aside for animu and vidya personally, and it's mostly permanence of tapes and the low cost per GB as time goes on. I don't want to spend on software and am hoping that I can get a drive in the 200-300$ range that supports the things I mentioned. Anyone have some insight? Also general tape/data hoarding thread I suppose.
3 posts omitted.
>>2202 >>2203 Got a box and barely used DDS4 tapes, should I get a drive or just toss them?
>>2432 Depends on how much money you have to spend and if you need cold storage. If you've got some folders you want a backup of, especially if you want to offsite it, then it's hard to go wrong with tape.
>>2432 If you don't mind getting friendly with mt and tar and have a way of keeping track of the data,(printout of tree or [code]ls -lh[code] would work) you should be gold. 5.25 internal drives seem to be dirt cheap, along with the HBA's. You would be dealing with an older, more confusing era of SCSI cabling, but there are Ultra320 pcie HBA's out there that would work on a modern machine.

Whatzapp Anonymous 12/01/2020 (Tue) 15:26:31 No. 1906 [Reply]
So im going through university and the teachers demand we have whatzapp group for our class so they can make announcements and distribute files and such, but as far as i know you need to have the app installed. Is there any way i can go through uni without getting zucked in the ass?

Or get a free phone from your phone service provider.
I was in a similar situation, i just told my superior who was in charge of forwarding information that internet on my phone doesn't work and without any discussion he began using e-mail or phone calls, just as he was supposed to.
(306.23 KB 1536x1408 04a75f80.png)

Honestly if you're at uni, then prepare to get fucked in the ass in even worse ways than whatsapp. But yeah, try what >>1910 said and if that doesn't work then setting up a Matrix homeserver with a bridge for whatever you need is the next best thing, since the bridges usually work on the API/message broker levels, you'll only be giving your messages & presence (and even that can be disabled in the config iirc) to zuck, no unrelated activity tracking etc.

Cloudflare Bypass Anonymous 08/30/2020 (Sun) 14:57:52 No. 1186 [Reply]
Privacy newbie here. Is there any reliable way to bypass cloudflare? I've been trying to use alternative net services like invidious and searx instances but with 40% of the net behind their service it really limits the options for surfing the internet.
5 posts omitted.
>>1186 >Is there any reliable way to bypass cloudflare? The best you can do is use add-ons like ublock origin and umatrix to blacklist javascript coming from cdnjs.cloudflare.com.
Cloudflare is a giant fucking MITM attack posing as a service. I don't know that there's any reliable way to counter it, other than avoiding any site that employs its services, which is ~40% of the web at this point.
>>1186 >>1235 >Is there any reliable way to bypass cloudflare? Unless the websites themselves host Tor or other hidden addresses, too bad, you can't. >invidious and searx I believe some instances have Tor sites. Find them yourself. For invidious, you could just use youtube-dl on youtube itself for the video. (youtube-dl also supports socks5 proxies if you need it) >Can anybody give more alternatives/mirrors to websites under cloudflare then? You can also archive the pages you want to browse. This way the archives render the cloudflare page, and you can browse the archive. If any of this isn't possible, just use Tor, a VPN provider, or some other proxy to browse a cloudflare service from some other location. Depending on the website settings, this will be a lot more work (either blocked, more captchas, etc) but you maintain more privacy if you do this correctly. (Obviously do your own research on how Tor and proxies affect privacy.)

/t/ for the Infinity Winter Cup 2020! Anonymous 11/23/2020 (Mon) 13:24:29 No. 1838 [Reply]
Hey there, /t/! We're in the process of organizing a new edition of The Infinity Cup or /icup/ for short, a virtual soccer tournament pitching various boards and imageboards against each other, and we're trying to find out if any of the boards that previously joined us wanted to reserve a spot in the final tournament. Since your team was already present in previous iterations, we already have both your roster, your kits and logos, so the only thing we ask of you if you want to join is the following: 1) Making sure your team has the correct number of medals (1 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze), which you can see from the wiki page; http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//tech/ 2) Making a thread over at https://anon.cafe/icup/ with your team's pledge, you just need to make a new thread telling us that your board wants in on the cup. Optionally) Assign player cards, roles and special strategies to your players, which can be referenced from the following wiki articles: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Player_Cards http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Rules http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Team_Strategies Optionally2) Change roster names and/or give us 3D models to use for your team, or new kits or whatever contribution you'd like. I hope to see you guys on the pitch!

Aricebo fell apart completely. Dish is completely shattered and all three towers, and the sensors, are down. Total loss. The worst part? It's had no funding for years, the US probably won't rebuild it, and the closest thing to a replacement is a Chinese one that isn't even as good. This would be the perfect excuse to fund a replacement. https://archive.is/B539k

Archive.org may be going down soon. There's a lot of stuff in there, since this includes the wayback machine too. What would be the most essential stuff to keep from it? Personally I know some old PC games that have become abandonware and are impossible to find (at least the demos) linger there. I'm sure anon knows about another important thing.

Windows XP/Server 2003/NT 5.1's source code LEAKED Anonymous 09/24/2020 (Thu) 22:54:14 No. 1405 [Reply] [Last]
So apparently the source code of Windows NT 5.1 AKA the shit used on XP and Server 2003 was leaked by the same fag who stole 2 terabytes of stuff from Nintendo two years ago, and it was uploaded by the same Discord circlejerk that has been leaking random stuff from Nintendo (>>>/v/69748). Here's the original (now defunct) thread on 4/v/: https://arch.b4k.co/v/thread/525864626/ And the MEGA link posted there: https://mega.nz/file/PdhxBSZD#w-O3C-BAMwE4E02qPn_fSdTivILcE8hzk9PeyoXg7wU Archived /g/ threads because they seem to be the only fucking place on internet talking about this: https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/g/thread/77879263/ https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/g/thread/77874231/ (at least they have some interesting screenshots and links) Bonus: A collection of past Microsoft leaks Magnet link: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:cec41d87d329822ea9b05c4f6c0dff7d29514d59&dn=Microsoft%20leaked%20source%20code%20archive%5F2020-09-20 Torrent: anonfiles.com/Ffn8u2Yaoa/Microsoft_leaked_source_code_archive_2020-09-24_torrent Limetorrents: https://www.limetorrents.info/Microsoft-leaked-source-code-archive%202020-09-24-torrent-15247398.html

>>1723 yeah that's kind of sad because if we had 7 now it would be really useful. And by the XP DE I mean pretty much all of it, not just a skin if that makes sense. Obviously I don't really know how all this stuff works though, but having for example the XP Control Panel would be really neat. not just a skin but its own package. XPDE or something haha
>>1723 >There's lots of WinXP skins for xfce that are plenty good. The only one that's even close to perfect is Chicago 95, all of the others have weird idiosyncrasies here and there that detract from them, and there's no gtk2 theme that can be easily ported between desktop environments that perfectly replicates the look and feel.

How are the cool kids making nitric acid at home these days? All the commercial sources are illegal because of McVeigh.
Well, since the chemical formula is HNO3, then you must grab Hydrogen, Oxygen and of course nitrogen out of the air and squeeze them all into a bottle to get nitric acid.

Invidious development halting Anonymous 08/01/2020 (Sat) 22:22:29 No. 826 [Reply]
https://omar.yt/posts/stepping-away-from-open-source https://archive.fo/78QBm https://web.archive.org/web/20200801221530/https://omar.yt/posts/stepping-away-from-open-source Starting September 1st, I'm shutting down the user-facing portion of https://invidio.us and stepping away from development. If you have an account on the site, you can export your data here, which will allow you to import everything to another instance or self-host. The API will continue to function until October 1st, to give time for any services relying on it to migrate to other solutions. If you're a patron on Liberapay, I would urge you to switch your donation to iv-org, as that will ensure it goes to the stewards of the project going forward. At the time of this writing, the main Invidious instance has roughly 35,000 users. It's difficult for me to even begin to think of those as actual people, and not just a number. At that level, the amount of feedback I receive, which I would consider rather small in comparison to others I've seen, is overwhelming. It's demoralizing not being able to respond to all of it properly. Even more so when I've received something that deserves an involved response, but I haven't had the time to reply, which counter-intuitively means the best comments are least likely to receive any response. To echo antirez: it's crushing not being able to be "there" for people. Lately, I've felt myself withdraw much more in return. For any project though, especially something that requires maintanence, it's difficult to actually "unplug" and mentally recharge. Turning off notifications has helped, but it's definitely taken its toll. For any project of a certain size, it's more important for the lead to be a manager more than a developer. As an example, it's mostly well-known that Linus Torvalds hardly does any coding anymore. At that point working on a side-project becomes a job, and not one I particularly enjoy. If I had known that I would've ended up in that position on a passion project, I'm curious if I would have made it open-source, or started working on it at all. In either case, I consider myself extremely lucky to have people that can manage the project in future, and can only imagine what it would be like for someone without that luxury. I can't help shake the feeling that somewhere, the software I use is being developed solely by volunteers who would rather quit, but don't have the ability to say "no". This post has been delayed for that very reason, especially when so many people have given so much, and I feel they deserve a proper goodbye. At this point though, I can't find the strength to leave on better terms. I don't want this to read like I somehow feel underappreciated or underpaid. I'm not motivated by praise or money. After working on the same thing for three years, I'm just tired and ready to move on.
