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.

>>1495 >It should still be done Most people care far, far more about their laptop being stolen that they care about the thief potentially being able to get some of the info inside it. As long as their passwords are encrypted in some way (which is the default on chromium browsers), it's a non issue. Of course things are different for work computers, but for those meme distros aren't even worth considering.
>>1503 the WM is FVWM the GTK theme is Adwaita
It's funny how lots of the problems ITT come from a lack of knowledge on using linux/gentoo instead of direct issues with cloveros. cloveros itself is fine, but i feel it's probably only good for people who actually know what they're doing in the first place. Otherwise you get complaints from people stating theres a problem with cloveros when in reality it's working fine, they just don't understand why. this is generally the problem with aiming at less knowledgeable userbases >>1495 >cloveros fails at multiple monitor look up how to use xrandr. If it's failing to use multimonitor that's an issue with xorg not cloveros (cloveros is literally just a script) >it downloaded the binary but compiled the dependences update your system before installing packages. if a dependency isn't present portage falls back to compiling against the current dependencies in order to prevent breakage. You could probably prevent this fallback by removing --keep-going in the emerge defaults in make.conf

TRUMP IS BUILDING A WALL...AROUND THE INTERNET Anonymous 08/08/2020 (Sat) 17:17:35 No. 953 [Reply]
>The Trump administration has unveiled a five-part plan to remove the presence of Chinese tech companies from the American Internet. Dubbed "Clean Network," the program aims to disrupt Chinese espionage efforts and prevent any censorship decisions being made at the whim of the Chinese government. >According to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the new program is an expansion of the White House's 5G Clean Path initiative that was announced earlier this year and targeted Chinese telecom equipment providers like Huawei, Hikvision, Hytera, and ZTE. >Clean Network would extend that same attitude towards "untrusted applications from US mobile app stores." One obvious example is TikTok, which is now facing an outright ban unless Microsoft can buy the entirety of its global operations. Pompeo told CNBC that "with parent companies based in China, apps like TikTok and WeChat and others are significant threats to personal data of American citizens, not to mention tools for Chinese Communist Party content censorship." https://archive.vn/A6Tj1

Books, .pdfs etc Anonymous 08/09/2020 (Sun) 17:38:09 No. 960 [Reply]
What are good, free books/.pdfs or any other source for CS learning? Post them here. Looking for anything to do with CS, any level, etc. If you got it, feel free to post it. Preferably non-programming (as that is clearly widely available anyway) - but anything posted will be useful to someone.
>>960 I'll just shamelessly pull from the /pac/ thread, and technically, from here as well because one of the torrents I first saw here. Firstly, the ACM Digital Library of Computer Science, a whopping 519 GiBs of computer science papers and such, very useful bb4367aa Secondly, from the Sicp website (I found this by looking at threads here) is the Gentoomen Library, a good resource for learning computer science, programming, and development. magnet:?xt=urn:btih:0bbfaaf5f469a2bd3d762f6942a302f7014a35e9&tr.1=udp://tracker.ccc.de:80&tr.2=udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80&tr.3=udp://tracker.opentrackr.org:1337&tr.4=udp://tracker.coppersurfer.tk:6969&tr.5=udp://tracker.leechers-paradise.org:6969&tr.6=udp://zer0day.ch:1337&tr.7=udp://explodie.org:6969
>>960 I second the Gentooman library. Beyond that, it's unclear what you want. Books about CS that aren't programming? Could be anything. Do you want network theory? Do you want cryptography? Do you want operating systems? Algorithm design? Finite state machines? There are textbooks on every possible topic, but there are too many topics to make a recommendation. Some of the best books are bound to programming because they offer how-to sections and practical examples in some language or another. That or they explore advanced techniques. I can offer suggestions but you need to be more specific with what theory you want.

Colorimetry Anonymous 07/12/2020 (Sun) 03:48:13 No. 630 [Reply]
I'm trying to learn colorimetry. In particular, I want to calculate CRIs from spectrographs of a light source. However, all the CIE documentation is fragmented all the fuck over the place so I don't even know which piece of documentation I need, and it's also all paywalled. Anyone have any good colorimetry sources?

Is there any steganographic encryption/Tor/etc. out there I can use when this "let's ban encryption!" bullshit gets passed? Because let's be honest, they're eventually going to pass it, just like every other bullshit legislation they always eventually want to pass.
3 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>624 Anon, this happens with a LOT of legislation. Major corps backing minimum wage laws, tax increases, more regulations, etc.. They do it because it increases the barriers to entry, making them more dominant, crushing their competition, and centralizing their market share.
>>623 >Definitely call up your congressman and senators and complain loudly. This cannot be allowed to pass. We will all become criminals overnight. It's just like SOPA/PIPA/TPP/FOSTCA/SESTA/etc., they can keep trying over and over again (encryption in particular has been going on since the clipper chip debates in the 90s) until they find some sneaky way (like the SESTA shit) to eventually get the legislation they always wanted to begin with. I'm already incredibly fatalistic about it. I can see the writing on the wall. They're going to get this shit passed even though everybody on the internet is against it. So, I'd rather skip to what I can actually do (because 'calling your senator' has about the same staying power as that online petition to get a new season of Firefly). If I have to move to steganographic protocols, for example, I think that'd be the most reasonable move that within my scope of what I could reasonably do in my life.
>>627 Yeah, let's just wait until the day that the MANE (Monopolies Are Not Evil) Act gets passed allowing monopolies to actually be allowed. (No, it's not an actual thing, but with how things are going, I don't doubt that some legislation is going to come out legitimately allowing monopolies instead of corporate loopholes that allow them to be "not" monopolies) >>628 Yeah, it's sad. They only have to pass this one time whereas everyone else has to vote against it until they stop. While your congressman and senators may not do much, just remember to cast your vote for actual people that genuinely care about your privacy rather than corporate sock-puppets.
