Hydrus Network General #1

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 continually working on the software and try to put out a new release every Wednesday by 8pm EST. If you would like to learn more, please check out the extensive help and getting started guide here:

Browser and Internet Privacy Thread

A place to shill for your favorite browsers & addons. Learn how to protect yourself from the botnet. What are your favorite addons and browsing tricks to protect your privacy? Share them here so we can all be a little safer. Browsers Chrome Chrome is somehow still in the lead due to sheer momentum, despite even the dumbest lusers cracking jokes about memory usage. Google has continued to abuse their position as the largest website and browser to force non-standards compliant changes to the way rendering works, generally to their benefit. Should be avoided at all costs. They track everything you do in some way. Chromium Even "de-Google'd" it still phones home and tracks your every move. Plus it gives them market share to bully smaller browsers and websites into complying with their standards. Avoid. Firefox Mozilla is pretty cucked and it's running on Rust these days, but it's a decent compromise between the modernity of Chrome and the standards compliance of something like Pale Moon. It's the closest you can get to a proper browser that's also updated regularly. Addons are worse now that they use Google's "web extensions" API, which is a downgrade from the Mozilla API and no more secure. But the whole "Quantum" thing has it flying, and they are better about standards compliance than Chrome is, and usually only break away because Chrome gives them no choice. Pale Moon The Gentooman's preferred choice, although some sites just don't play nice with it anymore. The last real holdout of old Gecko rendering. Has a diverse ecosystem, but it's basically the remnants of Firefox from yesteryear repackaged. Not bad if you can stand many sites not playing nice. Brave A cryptocurrency scam in browser form that's running modified Chrome underneath. Avoid. Lynx Text-mode browsing. Quality way to browse a surprising number of websites. Highly recommended. Unfortunately doesn't work well with LynxChan, which is ironic. Addons Block Ads uBlock Origin is pretty much uncontested. Be sure to avoid AdBlock Plus and uBlock, which are both sellouts. JavaScript LibreJS or uMatrix make it easy to manage and secure what scripts run in your browser and where page contests are loaded from. Canvas Defender' I use this to ward-off HTML5 canvas fingerprinting. It will return a randomize response to fingerprinting requests when it detects one. Decentraleyes Minimizes or blocks content loaded from CDNs, helping reduce the number of requests you need to make and preventing CDNs from violating your privacy. Even supports Pale Moon, so you know the developer has a good head on their shoulders. Disconnect A bit sketchy based on the website, but effectively works to block arbitrary cross-site scripts which ping Google, Facebook, etc. Helps prevent being tracked by these behemoths when sites use their embeds. Container Tabs A real killer feature that Firefox should have upstreamed instead of garbage like Pocket. Allows you to open tabs with a container for cookies. Instead of having to open private browsing to prevent Google from spying on your other cookies, you just put them into a containment tab. Problem solved. >But there are other ways to identify you! Correct, but these are increasingly becoming the most common. But the user agent string is a common giveaway, as is screen size, operating system, and available fonts. But there are mitigation techniques which can be applied, and having the above will still make it more difficult to track you. Keep in mind, the more people running these countermeasures, the more everyone begins to look the same. So shill them to your friends and family. It protects all of us.

/p2p/ General

Welcome to /p2p/, the dedicated peer-to-peer thread for /tech/ and the bunker for /t/orrentfags. What is P2P? Peer-to-Peer technologies allow decentralized networks to share data. They can be used to bypass oppressive government regulations on speech or to download the latest seasonal anime. What are my options? First and foremost is BitTorrent, a common protocol where files are split into chunks which are then shared via swarm, which works to get everyone a copy. There are many BitTorrent clients out there, and everyone has a personal preference. Some are owned my corporations and full of spyware. It's recommended you use something open source, like Deluge or qBitTorrent. Won't my internet get shut down? If your ISP is cucked then they might, but thankfully there is a solution. Use a VPN! Don't trust any VPNs that advertise all over the place. What is IPFS? IPFS: The Interplanetary File System us a protocol designed to help decentralize the web as a whole. It works like a distributed filesystem where you can pin files you like and others can access them. What is I2P? I2P is similar to IPFS in that it is a distributed network which holds files and other information for access outside of regular channels. Entire websites can be mirrored and accessed via I2P. This thread is for discussion, questions, and recommendations regarding peer-to-peer technologies and filesharing. You may also offer, request, or trade invites to trackers. Also consider this the /tech/ Share Thread.

Github's Head of Human Resources Resigns over the firing of a Jewish employee What are the possible ramifications of Github becoming woke and becoming pozzed? In light of this debacle. It is possible that Github could possibly look into changing it's Company Policy and thus code of conduct >GitHub regrets firing Jewish employee who called Trump-incited mob “Nazis” >GitHub Inc. yesterday apologized for firing a Jewish employee who had urged colleagues to "stay safe" and avoid "Nazis" on the day a mob incited by President Trump stormed the US Capitol. GitHub said it "reversed the decision" and indicated it is trying to hire the employee back. >"Stay safe homies, Nazis are about," the employee, whose identity hasn't been revealed publicly, wrote in an internal Slack chat room on January 6. He was fired two days later, after one "coworker was quick to criticize the employee for using divisive rhetoric" >"I did not know that, as a Jew, it would be so polarizing to say this word," the former employee wrote in a Slack group for Jewish employees shortly "before his corporate accounts got deactivated. The former employee is Jewish and had family who died in the Holocaust >The sacking was reportedly explained by the human relations representative who did the deed, with a “pattern of behavior that is not conducive to company policy.” >The fired employee spoke with TechCrunch last week before GitHub announced its decision to reverse the firing. The man "says he is (((currently seeking counsel to ensure his family is protected, as well as figure out if he can receive damages or some other form of reconciliation"))) and that he ((("is waiting to engage with the company until he has legal representation in place,"))) >The fired employee said he was also threatened with being fired in October when he complained about a lack of (((diversity))) in GitHub leadership. ((("I feel like this could be an opportunity for GitHub to really do a purge and say, 'Do we want white supremacists at this company and how do we get Black leaders into executive management?")))

Budget storage with tapes in 2020

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.

Point out languages and products that try to force politics on their users. It's become commonplace for tech startups to virtue signal, and for large open source projects to attract users who contribute little in terms of code but demand favorable treatment. Additionally, some have started including political messages in the software itself, or naming releases after issues the developer cares about. Some argue that such constraints and impositions violate the spirit of free software by requiring an agreeable political alignment between developer and user.

Archiving Discussion

Over the past couple of years I've been using my own technique to put together my own "locally stored google" of sorts. It's nothing complicated, I use the legacy add-on Session Exporter to export my tab history to an html file, and Ctrl+F them anytime I need to find something. I do this periodically while keeping Pale Moon set to remember tabs from the last session, and using FEBE to hold onto any profile underarchived while I start fresh to save memory. Lately I've been trying to use this technique to keep track of all the election related shit from, and I am finding it difficult to keep pace with this method alone. Between the sheer volume of links and media files, and the slowness of which forces a Jewgle capthca if you try to archive too many links at once, I am left looking for a technical solution that can address my needs. So, let's have a thread about archiving in general. Share your techniques and helpful advice.

ChannelChanger Development & Support

This is the official development and support thread for ChannelChanger. Please request help, post bugs, or offer suggestions here. What is ChannelChanger? A cross-platform, multi-site scraper and importer. It allows anyone to back up a board and then import it to their own website. What do I need to run this? Python 3.8+ and most of the dependencies listed in requirements.txt. A basic set-up guide is provided in the readme. This software was developed and tested exclusively on Linux. I intend to support both OSX and WIndows. If you use either of these platforms and encounter any issues, please let me know. Can I scrape a board from [site] with this? Probably. There is explicit support for LynxChan, Vichan, and JSChan websites. Some vichan sites may have issues with thumbnails because their APIs do not expose thumbnail extensions; I have added an override but you may need to run two scrapes of boards on some sites to get all of the thumbnails. Vichan's API matches 4chan's with some extensions, so the scraper might work on other sites which clone the 4chan API, but this is untested. Many vichan sites have customized frontends, such as OpenIB, Lainchan, or Kissue. I've tested and confirmed these work, but can't always guarantee full compatibility with each of these, especially if they decide to alter the API or where files are stored. LynxChan sites should work fine, since the direct path for both the thumbnail and the file are in the JSON. JSChan works, but its API is presumably unstable. if it changes, please alert me and I will make the necessary tweaks. Can I import these boards to my own website? Sure, but for the moment only importing LynxChan boards from LynxChan or Vichan sites has any support. Importing is currently undergoing a heavy refactor. Once it is done, it will be possible to import from any board to a LynxChan website. Imports to other imageboard engines are planned. Can I view the board offline? Easily? No, but I am looking into an option to do this. You will have a local copy of the threads and files, but the data is not modified for local viewing. I will continue to iterate and refactor. The code is a bit of a mess at the moment, but I plan to simplify it and make it PEP8-compliant soon. It's very likely there's still some big kinks to work out. Your feedback is incredibly valuable!

The future of imageboards: Over 9000 server proxies?

Of the new imageboards that launched recently two of them have something in common: Proxies. The new Zchan launched its server normally and proxies their site through a separate sever. This site has a "back door" to its tor hidden service that runs from a proxy on the clearnet. Much like anons using a proxy to evade a ban from a site, entire sites are now using proxies to avoid being banned from the Internet. The effectiveness of this is apparent at a glance. The servers for the main sites have no public IP to know and a much smaller attack surface, and if a proxy gets shut down another one can be spun up faster than relocating a whole server and all of its data. 8chan goes even further by allowing its server to hide on the onion network in case of a major attack or outage. Deplatforming a proxy that doesn't host content is naturally going to be a bit harder than deplatforming a site that does. My question is, is this going to become the status quo for "controversial" sites going into the future? Even a year ago I would have said this was extreme, but the sheer hostility against non-politically correct sites on the Internet, and the willingness of service providers to cave to an angry mob on the basis of emotion has exceeded my worst fever dreams. This is not how the Internet of my youth was supposed to be.

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; 2) Making a thread over at 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: Optionally2) Change roster names and/or give us 3D models to use for your team, or new kits or whatever contribution you'd like.

Tor Discussion

So, what's so bad about Tor? >it's a honeypot Not really, I have done extensive research into this and the only people caught on it were dumb fucks who made OpSec mistakes. Plus, the only people championing this point are schizos who use VPN services or set up their own VPN, or even just use their plain ISP-given IP address, all of which are way riskier than using Tor. If you're concerned about onion links being honeypots, then set up your own. It's one of the easiest things in the world to do. >it's slow Fair enough. >a lot of sites block it Yeah, and a lot of sites are fags anyways, a lot of sites are also using ReCatapha and require phone verification and use Cloudflare or AWS. Sites have been against privacy for a long time and are banning VPNs too. >it's operated by sjws&trannies Literally everything is now, including VPN services and ISPs, there is no escape unless you want to fully disconnect from the internet and live in a cabin in the woods, which considering people are still using this site, I don't see happening. Also, the directors are known privacy-advocates. >firefox Firefox is rapidly becoming a shit browser for privacy, yes, Chromium is worse, "Ungoogled" Chromium is still Chrome garbage, same with Brave, alternative Firefox builds are usually outdated, and Opera is blatantly spyware. Meanwhile, Tor usually strips out all the tracking that Firefox tries to push in new releases. >relays and nodes operated by governments Which is more of a reason to get more people using Tor so more people can set up nodes and relays aside from government interference. Not opening this to start an argument or a bash on how bad Tor is or just to simply praise Tor, I want a discussion, because most points about Tor being bad for privacy are easily debunked and usually only used by schizos and I want to ensure my personal privacy.

User-respecting websites

Are there any notable websites left that would respect the user's right even to some degree? My criteria are quite simple: 1. The website must not require javascript to work properly. It's fine to have extra functionality that requires javascript, but the main purpose of the site should be implemented without requiring javascript. 2. The website must allow Tor users and other proxy users. 3. The website must not require the user to give his name, address, phone number or any other identifying detail. In other words, the website must allow pseudo-anonymity. I can think of very few such websites: 1. allows you to create e-mail addresses, although the webmail doesn't work, but you can use your own e-mail client instead. 2. Some smaller imageboards work. 3. Search engines like duckduckgo and sometimes Startpage work. Although Startpage has been more frustrating lately. A lot of forums require registration, which is not new, but nowadays they require the user to pass google recaptcha v3, which does not work at all without javascript, and even with javascript it often just gives a never-ending list of traffic lights. works without javascript, but the comment section doesn't really work, and you obviously cannot upload videos that way. Bitchute allows you to watch videos if you already have the channel URL and do some RMB+Q magic, but the main page is practically unusable without javascript, and registration requires recaptcha v3. None of the social media sites fit the criteria, obviously.

Flatpak and Friends

What's your opinion on the concept of these newfangled package managers having sandboxing, enabling backwards compatibility and having a one-build-fits-all-distros mentality? Is it bloat, or the right way to go about solving such problems? Personally, I use Flatpak to handle games, so my system doesn't actually have any 32 bit libraries installed by my distro's package manager, anything 32 bit's managed entirely by Flatpak, separate from everything else. As well as isolating propietary software, since most games are, and Steam too. Since I don't use programs with Qt 5 much, I've decided to get rid of the ones I've installed natively and installed the ones I do need on Flatpak, that way I can get rid of Qt 5 as well.

Invidious development halting Starting September 1st, I'm shutting down the user-facing portion of 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. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Lynxchan customization

Post bits and pieces of JS and CSS here that you use to make browsing imageboards running Lynxware more enjoyable. On 8moe I use the following CSS: @media only screen and (max-width: 812px) { .uploadCell { margin: 0.25em 1em 0.25em 0.5em; float: none; } .multipleUploads { float: left; width: 100%; } .postInfo, .opHead, .divMessage, .panelUploads, .panelIp, .panelProxyIp, .contentOmissionIndicator, .labelOmission, .labelId, .panelASN { font-size: 80%; } .innerPost{ width:auto!important; } .innerPost, .markedPost { display: inline-block; padding: 0.25em; max-width: 100%; } #threadList { margin: 0; } iframe { display: block; width: 100%; } .divPosts { margin: 1em 0!important; } } This basically cancels out the responsive layout so the look of the board is consinstent when dealing with different windows/screen/fontsizes. It's probably a really retarded way to do it as it just overrides the stuff in the media query with the default values. But I'm glad I got rid of it at all. .theme_win95 #divThreads .title { background:linear-gradient(90deg, darkblue, lightskyblue)!important; color:white!important; } This turns the Windows 95 theme into Windows 98 SE. I've made a few more adjustments but I think fucked up other stuff in the process (focusing a post makes it all blue). The starting point was the gradient making everything less readable so I changed some of the colors. .labelCreated { display: inline!important; } .theme_win95 #divThreads .title { background:linear-gradient(90deg, darkblue, lightskyblue)!important; color:white!important; } .theme_win95 .extraMenuButton, .theme_win95 .hideButton, .theme_win95 .linkQuote, .theme_win95 .linkSelf { color: white!important; } .theme_win95 .panelBacklinks>a { color:gold!important; } .theme_win95 .labelSubject { color:orange; } .theme_win95 .noEmailName{ color:White!important; background: transparent!important; } .theme_win95 .linkName { color: cyan; }

>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."

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.

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?

Good Microphone for VA?

Hey guys, I'm starting to get into voice-acting, and it's honestly something that I've been wanting to do for a long, long time, so now that I have the money and the time, I wanted to really dive into it. Problem is, I am very inept when it comes to audio technology. I'm doing my best to try and learn about the different kinds of mics, and how to hook them all up, i.e. XLR vs. USB, audio interfaces, etc., and it's SORT OF making sense, but really, there's just a kind of overload of information online. Can you guys just help me decide on a good microphone for voice-acting, even entry-level? I have a Blue Snowball iCE right now, but I'd really like something more professional, even if I have to spend a couple hundred. Thoughts? Recommendations? Two that've caught my attention so far are the Shure Beta 58a and the MXL 990, but I don't want to make a shitty purchase and regret it.

Is this setup fine? >Working on PC like normal >PC starts whirring like the ball bearing's going out on the fan mounted to the stock block >Start to replace 80mm case fans, only to awaken to the sound of "WHIIRRRR" after compiling FFMPEG. >then I install a Be Quiet Shadow Rock LP with a Noctua Redux fan and the computer refuses to boot claiming "system fan failed" after the boot logo >then I replace the fan with a Noctua A12x25 while also adding a Noctua A9 to the rear I am wondering if I'll have issues with this setup? My concern is that the ATX12V port is under the heatsink, requiring me to bend the cable when the heatsink is in. This is the only way to fit the cooler since in the proper direction (hovering over the RAM), the pipes will bump into the chipset heatsink, making mounting that way impossible.
