Welcome to /hobby/, plus mod feedback thread! Comrade Board volunteer 10/23/2019 (Wed) 16:57:58 No. 1 [Reply]
Hello everyone, and welcome to /hobby/! This topic will serve as an introduction as well as the mod feedback area. I know that some people were not on board with our decision to merge the boards, but please give it a chance and hopefully you will find it to be as comfy as where you used to hang out, but with more population. In addition, Comrade King has kindly volunteered to migrate over all the topics that have had activity in the last few weeks so you can continue your conversations.

However, I want to stress that this board should be treated as a clean slate and you should make use of the freedom that it allows. In this space feel free to make topics about any kind of hobby, entertainment, passtime, interest or vocation. These topics don't have to be related to leftism, though of course you should feel free to do so if you would like. Overall, this board is intended to give refugees of 8chan somewhere to post about their favourite interests without having to go into whatever new skinhead-infested DoD honeypot is created to replace it. An example of the kind of topic that might be encouraged is to start a topic discussing your favourite workout routines or recipes, or discussing an interesting movie that has recently been released. We would encourage people to put effort into their OPs however, as one line shitposts might be more comfortable on /GET/.

As we have merged other boards in order to create /hobby/, we would like to remind all users that it is possible for more boards to be created in future out of /hobby/ if they demonstrate a good user count/post volume such that they would be able to support a board on their own.

Overall, the moderation standards here are similar to the ones on /leftypol/, and I have included their manifesto for reference, with the exception that posts do not have to have a political slant or basis. I hope you will all enjoy this board together and that we can have some good conversations.

>Protecting the status quo is the most common "heroic" motivation in popular media.
That's more MODERN Western media. A lot of works I have read of Western film and literature have been protagonists who are NOT 'status quo'. For example Spartacus or Ben Hur or Huckleberry Finn etc. Obviously shit like Tom CLancy or James Bond is status Quo but that's more modern pop-culture.
>That's more MODERN Western media.
I said "contemporary western fiction." You're right there's plenty of history to the contrary.
>contemporary western fiction
Ah, well many 'leftists' tend to use "contemporary" to encompass the entire 20th century TBH.
>Most villains are ideologically leftist.
Now this is a hot take if I ever saw one. Mind expanding on that?

A lot of the more nuanced villains of superhero stories are leftist or have some sort of leftist ideology.

- Joker, especially in the recent film, is essentially an example of when one of the working class shatters and goes nuts from the crush of capitalism essentially embodying the metaphysical alienation and urge to lash out and do SOMETHING caused by wage-slavery.
- MCU Whiplash was the result of a scientist being essentially thrown out to die after helping create the Arc Reactor and his son seeking vengeance and to gain what his fathers labor had rightfully deserved but was taken.
- Sandman from Spiderman 3. Guy was put in prison for what amounted to man slaughter after his need to support himself and his family drove him to crime.
- Eddy Brock (Venom) was just a photographer and journalist who ended up being in the wrong place(s) at the wrong time(s) and ended up jobless and with nowhere to go.
- Remont 4 or six depending on publication are literally ex-soviet supers who revolt against the de-sovietization of Russia and want to return the USSR to the days of Stalin.
- Garou from One Punch Man is ironically an idealist who sympathizes with monsters only because the concept of Heroes is so oppressing.
- Stain from My Hero Academia is a hero-killer who despises heroes because they're 'fake' pretending to be noble and instead just playing at being responsible for others.

The list goes on but you get my point

>ancap wolf guy
I have a rough idea of who you're on about. He's more outspoken but his own ancap idiocy makes him easy to dismiss and laugh at. Roarey is more moderate and so more people like his faggotry and agree. That said, any time someone serious points out his bullshit he nitpicks then blocks them.
>the biggest Dildo in BD's inventory up his ass on a livestream
I think so, not that I've seen it or looked TBH.
>fence posts with dragon dildos
>pants with dragon dildos built into them in the seam of the back
The latter probably. Furries are a minority of the social populationm Furries doing buttstuff even more so so public BD wouldn't go over well. Although that does remind me of pic related
I had to fucking google the guy's name "esoteric entity" it's more pretentious and more auto-generated than I thought. Also he made that fucking cringe hammer meme so I sure fucking hope nobody takes him seriously.
>Roarey is more moderate and so more people like his faggotry and agree
Is he Sargon's fursona or something?
>Furries doing buttstuff even more so so public BD wouldn't go over well
I wanna make a joke about everyone getting a dragon dildo whether they want it or not but I feel like someone would take that seriously

I want dragon dildo wallpaper now. Also tbqfh the only part of that which actually took me aback was that fucking sergal body pillow. I need to do some google searches real quick.

Try searching for Bad dragon dildos on duckduckgo image search in tor, that image searcher gives the best resolution for any search I've cared for NSFW or not.
>joke about everyone getting a dragon dildo whether they want it or not
We're a tiny closed-away board on a tiny closed-away chan, go ahead, I'd enjoy more BD jokes.

Here's one you may know;
Why do they call it Bad Dragon?

Because the quality is bad and the wait times keep draggin' on.
>Try searching for Bad dragon dildos on duckduckgo image search in tor
Nah I mean like a real physical wallpaper for my room. For reasons.
>go ahead, I'd enjoy more BD jokes
Oh the joke was just going to be "everyone gets a dragon dildo whether they want it or not" but in an ironic sense..
>that joke

Also I was just asked to go to a masquerade event and when I asked what's the style they responded with "formal: suit and mask" and I had a terrible thought run across my mind. the awoo of the opera
>the awoo of the opera
That's a good one actually.
That guy's deer provides great furry humor. His animated video to the Grease song is really well made too.

Typical Western chauvinist doubting the dialectical materialism of Neo-Dengism.

Interesting ideas, what role do you think nuclear weapons would play? Countered by laser technology? My apprehension with mods set in any timeframe where nukes are in large quantities is how conventional war would be unrealistic for any nation which had a nuke stockpile.
>Typical Western chauvinist doubting the dialectical materialism of Neo-Dengism.
Come on, we know it’s gonna happen, the writing is on the wall.
>what role do you think nuclear weapons would play? Countered by laser technology?
A missile would have to be heavily armored to get though point defense. Maybe ICBMs for the most part get mostly replaced by SLBM or Satellite launched missiles.
Yeah I agree with you on China, would be interesting to see what their iconography/symbolism would become with mask-off capitalism.

And I was under the impression that MIRVs countered point-defense but I suppose modern forms of it could take them out.

What do you think would trigger Britain going Communist?
>And I was under the impression that MIRVs countered point-defense but I suppose modern forms of it could take them out.
Laser point defense could destroy any missile without sufficient armor. However, with Tungsten armer a few could probably get through. The main problem with military lasers is that they aren’t just better guns, they are weapons that concentrate heat on a target in hopes that enough heat will cause it to disfunction. So while hitting an object might be easy, a hit doesn’t garente neutralization.
>What do you think would trigger Britain going Communist?
Well the main reason why I chose the UK is that they are semi-issolated from the world being an island and all and are a major power capable of projecting some power outside their boarders, but not much. They aren’t China, or India who’d be the superpowers in this mod. A plausible scenario for them going commie would be Boris pushing through NHS privatization, and eventually the Torries allowing for rents to rise supper high, while wages are stagnate. Things boil to a point where enough is enough and people revolt.
>would be interesting to see what their iconography/symbolism would become with mask-off capitalism.
They could keep their high amount of state run companies and just take the hammer and sickle stickers off. While the amount of the Chinease economy that is state run is high, it’s not so high that an openly capitalsit country couldn’t have the same thing. As for why they’d do it. ITTL they successfully replaced America as the world’s superpower and did it so that American companies and banks would feel comfterble “immigrating" to China. Many major american financial companies are registed Chinese companies, headcorderd in Hong Kong Providence by the time the mod starts.

How to set up linux for tor usage. Comrade 08/06/2019 (Tue) 23:50:13 No. 600 [Reply]
I posted this in another thread but I think it deserves its own thread.

I've been seeing a lot of people saying that installing tor is super hard and difficult, and, even if you use windows it's not that hard. All you have to do is install the tor browser and go into the browser bundle files and run the executable for tor, or, just use the browser bundle.

Like it's not hard at all.

But, being the pros (and dirty commies that we are) we don't use fucking bourgeois Microsoft.

So, I've set up a super simple and comprehensive guide to installing and using tor like a pro on Linux.

This is why we use Linux.


Downloading tor:

Tor would be useless if you fall on a node controlled by the NSA, so one should at least exclude all the nodes from counties in the 14 eyes. Also don't use distros using systemd.
>Tor would be useless if you fall on a node controlled by the NSA, so one should at least exclude all the nodes from counties in the 14 eyes.
Elaborate? I really don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.
conspiracy theory that the US government spies on the tor network by running tor exit nodes. due to the design of the protocol, they would have to control like 3/4 of all the nodes on the network to be able to successfully deanonymize anyone.
What are the chances that conspiracy is true?
>they would have to control like 3/4 of all the nodes on the network to be able to successfully deanonymize anyone.

Seventeen Moments of Spring Anonymous Comrade 11/18/2019 (Mon) 02:52:46 No. 2805 [Reply]
This Soviet TV series is probably the best TV show ever made. It is pure кино and deeply anti-fascist, anti-imperialist, and anti-USA. It's about a Soviet spy sabotaging peace talks between the OSS and Himmler (to allow the USA and Nazi Germany to team up on the USSR). It was made at the request of the head of the KGB. The tension and drama in this show is outstanding!
7 posts omitted.
Anyway, thanks for the rec. cheers!
Best thing you can do is make more topics and posts
Sadly don't have much to add about 17 moments of Spring (since everything I know and have on it is in Russian).

I do know of a film called Cross of Iron
It's interesting but still has some anti-soviet tones sadly.
We need to advertise on the other boards or on other chans like 2ch.
really good soviet comedy with english subtitles

I had my eyes on it. I'm surprised it's still in early access, I feel like I watched the trailer for this game like a year ago.
It looks cool, but I'm not touching it until it's out of early access.

Lets Make a Imageboard - /hobby/ edition Anonymous Comrade 10/31/2019 (Thu) 22:28:28 No. 2350 [Reply]
With the official locking of >>>/tech/ I'm moving my development log thread here. Feel free to ask questions, make comments, or pass on your suggestions. Much of the template is now complete, the CSS is responsive, usable on every browser that has rem support, and only 3815 bytes. There is still some work to be done which I'll mention in a reply following this. As it stands the plan is to start programming the back-end in OCaml this Monday leaving the finishing touches in the front-end for a later date.

front-end principles
The site should be minimalist. Adding elements unnecessarily makes everything more difficult to implement for and slower.

The site should be responsive. I don't own a device with a touchscreen, but they are omnipresent, and there is no reason that you shouldn't be able to use a website with your touchscreen device well.

The site should be compatible. I'd like to see support for more or less every desktop platform since ~2000 (this is easily done with MyPal PaleMoon, and TenFourFox) and more or less every "smart device" ever.

Text formatting should be subtle and compose as expected. There should be nothing that would feel be out of place in a book or article.

Web-fonts should not be used. Web-fonts don't improve the usability of the site but increase bandwidth usage and hinder performance for users.

JavaScript should only be used for progressive enhancements and as much of the site as possible should work without it. A Complete list of features which will require JavaScript are: automatic copying of text into the reply form, automatic refreshing of the page along with title notifications, and moving the second reply form.

To maximize the part of my life authentically lived under normal circumstances I don't allow myself to use the internet except for to find answers to specific questions, or to download books, and I don't engage with entertainment at all. Over the past several months due to some stress in my life I've been enforcing the internet part of my rules less stringently than I would like. I'll be continuing development but dramatically slowing my dev-log. It's unlikely that questions asked here will be answered in any sort of timely fashion. I hope you all understand. Just for the record, I don't think Asceticism is in its self good, it's just a tool I use.
wait so are you discontinuing development? i was planning on using this... :(
No, "I'll be continuing development but dramatically slowing my dev-log." In other words I'll be programming the same amount but talking about it less. Also keep in mind it's going to take a while before it's competitive with existing engines, you'd probably be better off using those for the foreseeable future.
I'm late to the game here, why was >>>/tech/ shut down?
they said there wasn't enough activity, so they combined the non-leftypol boards other than GET into one single board
