>>92 >Having to literally boot up a whole different operating system That's not what I meant to imply, sorry for the confusion. I meant to convey that I was pretty sure Whonix were helping with developing a solid I2P Browser. >I should be able to use [two different darknets] with out switching to dedicated browsers[...]. I totally disagree. <[researching, catching up on last 6 months of I2P's development] I'm pleasantly surprised! They seem to have made major design improvements, the project no longer gives the impression of 2003 malware, which is great. On a more serious note they seem to have (with the help of Whonix developers) integrated what was previously the "I2P Router" with the new I2P Browser https://geti2p.net/en/browser/releasenotes#r20b5 >2.0 Beta 5 (Sep 12 2019) >The browser now ships with the router on Linux >The browser now ships with the router on Windows >The browser now ships with the router on Mac OS X This is what I was referring to.

>>72 Because the add-ons actually fucking work on Pale Moon. I'll switch to Icecat as soon as they reject all the fucking bullshit Mozilla added over the years to kill the very extensions that made their browser unique and appealing in the first place.
>>96 I wasn't trying to be rude, anon. I hope I Didn't come off that way; >I totally disagree. I do want to go off on a tangent about this, though: Why do you disagree with this? If I can use the tor browser for all of my privacy needs why should I have to use a different browser for i2p? Isn't that just more development to keep up with and more load on the user all together? It seems unnecessary. > the project no longer gives the impression of 2003 malware Audible kek.
>>8 Firefox with duckduckgo
I've been using Tor Browser for literally everything for years now, don't have any other browser on my system. But my Internet surfing is very modest and adapted to that, can't remember the last time I logged into a user account for example. Not gonna lie, sometimes it can be frustrating when Tor is blocked or you end up with a slow circuit, but at this point connecting over clearnet feels like going naked outside of my house.

The white glass is broken and the screen has moisture, is the whole thing destroyed? Otherwise perfectly functional (!). Client is a friend, apparently this happened before he could replace his damaged case. It's a gift so he can't afford to service it. I feel like the parts for this will either be chinkshit or more expensive than a decent Android with a free, open operating system for once. Any advice would be huge.

It looks like to me you are gonna need a whole new screen ribbon cables and all. Shouldn't be much like you said.

Hardware Issues Comrade 02/04/2020 (Tue) 10:43:17 No. 220 [Reply] [Last]
More just cause I don't wanna go to some place like r/techsupport ew So anyways I built a computer recently, it works perfectly fine except for one issue: it has difficulty starting up. It takes about 5 minutes after pressing the power button for it to turn on, nothing will speed it up. I found out that the issue with it is that the Motherboard came with a dead CROM battery, I replaced that and voila it starts up fine. And it has been fine for the past week, however the startup issue has returned, and just to be sure I replaced the CROM battery AGAIN but this time it didn't work. I know for a fact that it was just the dead battery that was the issue so why is it persisting?
7 posts and 2 images omitted.
>>242 Yeah but if it was the battery then your new battery wouldn't be experiencing the same issues right?
>>243 It's some issue with the mobo and related to the CROM somehow since its affecting boot time but not the boot itself, the delay can only come from some issue with the mobo getting power from the CROM since the time and date reset as well. If it was a PSU issue it just wouldn't start, plus I've tested the PSU, plus replacing the battery fixed it before, so obviously that was the issue, just somehow it's back and changed? Or the problem got worse somehow.
And now the computer won't turn on at all after turning on while in sleep mode last night and MSI is being a fucking bitch about a replacement, they fucking sent me a broken motherboard, the least they could fucking do is own up to it.
>>249 Walk in the door and punch them in the face.

Bodhi vs Lubuntu? Comrade 02/01/2020 (Sat) 06:20:29 No. 172 [Reply] [Last]
I'm planning on switching from lubuntu to bodhi, however I need to know whether or not bodhi would work just as well as lubuntu for my system Specs: >CPU: Intel Atom CPU Z520 @ 1.333GHz >GPU: Poulsbo >RAM: 2gb It's a really shit acer netbook
2 posts omitted.
I only ever used Lubuntu for old computers and it works quite well (don't expect to be able to watch video on YouTube at more than 480p though). I've heard nice thing about Bhodi but never tried it.
>>177 >(don't expect to be able to watch video on YouTube at more than 480p though) That'd still be an issue of the hardware tho and not the OS (I've used Lubuntu playing HD clips fine on my laptops with 4GB of RAM).
>>177 I have shitty laptop too but minimal devuan with dwm helps alot
>>178 Yes I know, I was just saying that while Lubuntu can give an 10 years+ computer a new life, it can't do much about resource intensive websites like YouTube (there's always the great program YouTube-dl for that).
>>175 Because I'm buddhist

I know, you're asking yourself already, how the fuck are crypto's compatible with a leftwing communist image-board? Well, first of all, fuck you, we live under capitalism and as such must exchange and purchase under the current mode of production we find ourselves under. Second, I would like some one to help me understand, exactly, how to set up a bitcoin, monero, what have you; wallet. I tried to set this up on my laptop but syncing with the bitcoin network is a huge MASSIVE bitch and took me months and I never got fully synced. Also, it takes a shitload of resources to work properly on my computer. I can barley do anything else. So, my question is: What is the best way to get into bitcoin and use bitcoin and other cysto's like a boss? Am I doing something wrong? What are the best specs for btc and the like? As always, any help would be appreciated. Thank you /tech/!

>>136 No, not everyone is a capitalist. That doesn't make any-sense you stupid polack; I don't have capital and sell my labor for a wage, therefore I am not a capitalist. Furthermore, no one is looking to mine anything, man. All I want is to simply invest a few hundred dollars into the currency during a low point and, sure, everyone enjoys consuming things. Consumption is the very nature of our existence. The point is to consume responsibly and not frivolously like a fucking dipship. Hence why transferring electrical signals over satellite and landline is more efficient than shipping millions of lazoser disks around the globe; Entertainment is a necessity for a persons existence, believe it or not.
>>57 Well to answer the first question is are you trying to buy bitcoin and other cryptos. Because there are many places you can, but not a lot that allows you to convert the fiat to btc. You aren't doing anything wrong, syncing a hardware wallet is a pain, most crypto folks will tell you get a cold storage wallet the one that I have is a Ledger Nano S. Now if you are thinking about mining crypto for profits, even the ASIC miners don't even make up for their electric costs, and mining farms are insane. I am still pretty newbie myself but I can give you help where I can.
The best way to get rich off cryptoshit is to either buy in early and then shill it, or to make one yourself and mine early, and them shill it. Crypto is pure pyramid speculation, unlike stocks crypto does not generate dividends.

https://github.com/8b2eef7c901269e8e9a6ec532d57b6b1/supremereality Cons - Terrible CSS - No use of redis/memcached or any caching - cuck BBcode formatting until the last version PROS - Written in a functional language (Clojure) - Way less lines of code than Vichan - No CAPTCHA, uses honeypot method of spam prevention - User created boards unlike Lynxchan Maybe the CSS can be modified to make it better?

>>140 >I just want to know why it wants me to install this fucking imageboard rather than just visit it through https.
>>132 >allows you to create features faster and have a smaller codebase Then why does everything written in functional languages has less features than normal software? >inb4 muh ignorant and ebil programmers fail to notice the supreme functional meme
>>140 there's literally a demo app linked in the page... https://www.supremereality.us/ >>147 >Then why does everything written in functional languages has less features than normal software? Thats a pretty broad and sweeping statement. Most of twitter's backend is written in Scala, which is a functional language
>>132 While functional languages reduce (some) complexity and stuff, choosing a purely functional language has downsides. Additionally, javashit has a fuckton of npm libraries despite it being a cancer language, something which underused lisp clone 576 lacks. If I were to use a functional language to implement the logic I would use f# because of csharp interop and thus ability to use most csharp libraries. But .net has bad webdev capabilities. Also as it stands right now I have no interest in switching the entire site to a new software, learning a new language and then having to cobble together all the features that are missing.
>>161 no one is saying to switch the site dude, its just an interesting project... Also clojure has the most libraries of any language due to JVM/java interop, it has all its own libraries plus Java's.

I will be making a post on this board later this week with information, etc. On friday I will have (hopefully) finished my college degree and have free time again. >Our code, however, is going to be a forked version of that, ofc. Nope. As of right now our backend code is 100% pure lynxchan, in which we have 3 plugins to provide additional functionality (fixing post history, anchord functionality, orangetext). Our frontend is a fork of the default frontend but is kept relatively close to it in order to be able to pull updates if we upgrade a version.

>>151 Im somewhat upseti but the repair isnt that difficult. I missed two parts for my grade which I did make but did not document. Shouldnt take more than a week to fix my thesis and pass, maybe 3 weeks if im going to be really fancy and thorough. After that i should hopefully be completely done. I was hoping to finish my education today though. Feels bad when you do all that work and then fail you. Im so fucking tired.
