>>4796 Factor out the bullshit and it makes a lot of sense. Replace cuckold relationships (deliberate NLP with "girlfriend" for someone who is not, in fact, your girlfriend) with any non-commodifiable service e.g. music. Replace NFT degenerate blockchain signature-orgies with a single signature (i.e. an autograph) of the person that actually matters, the musician. You now have a basis for a long-term relationship (platonic) with a content creator, solidified by a bonding ritual/tradition. You thus enable investment capitalism and shun transaction capitalism.
>>4805 That sounds more like a parasocial "relationship"

I Built an Air-Gapped Feed Reader and That Unveiled US’ Military Surveillance Anonymous 07/10/2021 (Sat) 23:26:40 No. 4795 [Reply]
I made for myself a feed reader that can visit pages that need JavaScript (with Puppeteer), make feeds from it (PHP script), make full feeds out of it and write the result to an email file (msg/eml). I then take these files to an air-gapped computer (no network ports, no radio dongles) and read it there with a localhost web stack and custom JavaScript that makes it easy to read hundreds of entries every day. The emails include images and even videos, so there is no need to visit the sites manually most of the time. Besides learning what is written in all these feeds, I have come to learn what isn't written: the US military has access to all PCs (even air-gapped ones) by using radio to control all CPUs (BadBIOS). They use this for blackmail, sabotage and theft. All done by state sponsored cyber terrorists. This is the reason the US is insisting that countries don't use Chinese 5G: China has discovered what the US was doing and now can either do it themselves or block the US' radio transmissions - and the US doesn't want to lose their backdoors. I also learned that the big social networks tap into the data mined by the US' military to surface recommendations in their timelines. TikTok was called a national security threat, but isn't the only one that is tapping the surveillance machine: Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are on it too. I am willing to partner with researchers who want to replicate my findings and reverse engineer the malware they inject on the RAM of PCs. There is more that I haven't written here, but ask away and I will reply. For those who don't have the skills or don't want to face the danger of going against a corrupt military, but that still want to stand against the violations of Human Rights that are going on, just spread the word. Thank you.

Pajeets are probably the worst choice anyone could pick to run a large company - even a tranny nigger midget would probably be less damaging. Like all manlet pajeets in a position of power, Nadella is a megalomaniac who always wanted to turn Windows into "his" OS and Microsoft into "his" company. Like every pajeet, he is extremely stubborn and will never, ever admit to having made a mistake. If pajeets are in a sinking ship, they'd rather sink and drown with the ship, in case abandoning the ship would carry the implication that they've made a mistake. That's why they always stick with any bad decisions made regarding Windows 10's design even if there's backlash and no one likes it. Saying all of this from experience by the way. I have worked with and interacted daily with pajeets in an IT company that hired a few of them because they fell for the "indians are smart and good with tech" meme. >half of his bad ideas have failed already, leaving a long trail of tech debt detritus to clean up Well he's a street shitter, of course he leaves a trail of shit wherever he goes.

What should I do with these computers? Anonymous 06/30/2021 (Wed) 01:27:09 No. 4661 [Reply]
I have a few computers lying around my house that I don't use anymore or inherited and I'm trying to find what to do with them. To answer the question of why I don't use them, it's because I already have a laptop, tablet, and desktop that already suit my basic needs. So, what should I do with these aside from tossing them (Which I think is a waste)? Here are the models I have: >Kaypro 10 >Dell Latitude CPi A-Series >HP Pavillion G7 1355dx >HP Pavillion 500-424

>>4661 > What should I do with these computers? sell them
Give em to me, I'll use them.
>Kaypro 10 You should sell. I have no idea how rare it is but it might fetch a decent price among retro collectors. >Dell Latitude Install Windows 98 on it and make it a DOS/Win9x era retro gaming machine. Or keep it stored somewhere and hope that in 5 - 10 years it will increase in value with retro collectors. Or throw it in the trash. >HP Pavilion desktop and laptop These machines still have pretty decent specs for basic use, and can run Windows 10 or current Ubuntu / Mint just fine. You could turn one of them into a HTPC or living room web browsing machine. You can try selling them for about 100 bucks each, but I'm not sure it's worth the hassle. If not, donate them (i.e. to a school or some poorfag who is in need of a working PC).

I'm getting schizo Anonymous 06/08/2021 (Tue) 20:58:29 No. 4402 [Reply]
Hey, /t/. I've always heard about: "Google fucks your privacy", "Microsoft is a fucking botnet", "If a software doesn't give his code, probably is a spyware", etc. I'm very worry about this, so I want your help. Maybe my ignorance it's the cause of this... Really Microsoft/Google/Social medias steal persona information?, where can I get information?, some tip/recommendation?, or all this is just a bait and I'm a fool for believe them.

>>4457 As far as I know, System76, Purism, and StarLabs can't remove PSP or IME, nor can they replace closed-source chipset drivers. I don't think this is by choice, but generally it violates their contracts to do it themselves and voids the warranty even if they could. Their hands are tied. But I'd really like to be proven wrong.
More and more you'll notice their A.I.'s knowing you on a personal level.
>>4509 PSP is a motherboard module, some asrock models including mine can disable it, but you'll have to trust experts that it really is disabled. As for getting a computer without even support for it, arm64 or risc-v computers might be more promising, just remember only 5% of the risc-v instruction set on consumer chips are actually free and open source, vendors stack their proprietary implementations for things like video codecs and networking instructions. So arm64 is more practical at the moment due to larger software support.

All AMD Processors Since Phenom II Have BadBIOS Circuitry That Leaks to the Military Anonymous 06/10/2021 (Thu) 11:34:40 No. 4426 [Reply]
Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer. Just like AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS (uses radio, not sound) vastly nastier than StuxNet. American military made a grave mistake by giving access to the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.
You already posted this: >>3215 Although just as last time, > from empirical events I witnessed and inside info basically, you're pulling this out your ass

To: esr@thyrsus.com Nothing more to say? You just keep your mouth shut because you quake in the knees at the thought of a BS libel suit from Grsec and just want peace in your old age, while RMS tilts at windmills regarding topics such as "Am I a Real Doctor" and "What /SHOULD/ The age of consent REALLY be: my musings over the years" and never "Hmm what of these blatant copyright violations that stab at the very heart of my movement?" Guess you're happy in you irrelevancy: which comes because you don't do what you used to do.

GRsec will never be held to account. There is not a single person of note who wants to pursue it. The GPL is a fantasy and has no teeth and is irrelevant.
>>4353 >GRsec will never be held to account. Wrong. Funds are being gathered. >There is not a single person of note who wants to pursue it. Wrong. There is a person of note who wants to pursue it and is taking steps to do as such. It may take some time. >The GPL is a fantasy and has no teeth and is irrelevant. That is because of Richard Matthew Stallman: who is at the helm of the free-software movement but will not say a word. It is RMS's fault that he doesn't even speak to defend his copyright license. It's like a ship without a captain.

Oh, you're a programmer! I bet you believe that editing someone else's code and then making a "diff" of your changes makes that a seperable non-derivative work too! Stupid fucking piece of shit.

Although not entirely in the spirit of /t/, let's talk a bit about this typesetting tool. What do you use it for? Do you like using it? Encountering any problems? What program do you use? I mainly use it for my academic reports, since it works very well with formulae and chemical reactions. Anything else would be an abstract horror, so to say. I have been using TeXworks+JabRef, and have mostly been satisfied with the results - except for the occasional hiccup like the formula above. The only drawback is that there is not a proper dark theme, so it gets a little straining on the eyes sometimes.
