Public key cryptography integrated into chans. Comrade 03/03/2016 (Thu) 03:32:58 No. 22 [Reply]
Has any IB software integrated public key generation? it will be very useful when people wants to share something specific on the board without others seeing.
I was actually thinking of this another day. But we need a secret board first IMO.

The fuck is spoiler on lynxchan? Am I a newfag again?

Lets Make a Responsive Imageboard Comrade 10/28/2019 (Mon) 20:06:19 No. 1002 [Reply]
Hey folks I had some time off again this morning so I was able to polish off a good chunk of the template from last week, fixing the issues I was having there and adding some new content. The following is a list of design ideas for the front-end, I probably have a morning or two more work to have this in a stable enough situation to start working on the backend which I have a number of ideas for as well.

Text formatting should be composable without errors, and should be subtle. There should be no text formatting that you would be surprised to see in a article or book.

Minimalism should be upheld. unnecessary forms, links, and elements should be removed. Adding complexity unnecessarily makes everything more difficult to implement for no reason and slower on account of having to process, serialize, and send additional information.

Responsive design should be implemented. 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.

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 be solely used for copying text into the reply form, automatically refreshing the page, and changing the page title when there has been a unseen reply due to automatic refresh. Possibly also for n file upload.

Compatibility should be strived for, I'd like to see 90% support at the minimum preferably greater than 95% along with a browser for more or less every desktop platform since ~2000. (Windows XP can be trivially supported due to PaleMoon MyPal for example, G3 and later Macs can be supported with TenFourFox, there isn't really a reason to have a outdated linux/bsd machine, mobile devices will likely be a different story.)

How do spoilers work? Do they cover up EM🍩JI and also colored text and also links like https://bunkerchan.xyz for example?
>>1012
>Do spoilers work with other sorts of text formatting?
So, basically the only ways to get spoilers to work are to either remove colors when hovering, or to not spoiler colored text and links. I've opted to spoiler but remove the colors. I also don't plan to have any equivalent to the rage text, I think bold is a fine replacement. Attached is a image of this in action.
>>1012
>Do Emojis work with spoilers?
Emojis are even more tricky, as it stands only new chrome and safari builds support using transparency to hide them while having them still take up space. I've got a way that comes close to this while being backwards compatible but depending on the size of the emoji it's often going to be incorrect and lead to it resizing slightly on hover. I'm honestly considering banning emoji's although I likely won't do it.
>>1015
>depending on the size of the emoji it's often going to be incorrect and lead to it resizing slightly on hover.
You can actually see this in the image sizes of the two examples notice how one is "329x196", while the other is "327x196", that's because the span I'm using to fill while the emojis not there is 2px smaller than the actually emoji on my device. This fill can't realistically be dynamically changed because every font has different emoji designs and we've already ruled out using webfonts. By the way this requires a span for every emoji or block of emojis in the spoiler, along with a additional span for each spoiler block, not exactly pretty. If I'm being honest the possibilities are a webfont with emojis or to remove emojis, on some devices the current implementation will look quite bad.
>>1016
Apparently a sound way to deal with this is to swap all the emojis for SVG images, and maybe limit the number you can post per reply. Twemoji is one source of these SVGs. So the options are removal or SVGs, neither of which seem unreasonable to me.

I think when I start back to work this following Monday or Tuesday I'll focus on the back-end. Just for my own sake I'm going to have a brief list to remind me what still needs to be done on this page's template: overflow-y: auto; on mobile when flex-wrap isn't available for the navigation, add reporting/deleting posts, check if whited00r has a browser with rem support, add moderation tooling, consider "desktop first" CSS because all mobile devices have media query support, and setup a second position: fixed; form for easier posting.

After wasting yesterday evening trying to get UEFI boot working with funtoo on my brother in laws new desktop and eventually giving in and using the MBR, there is emerging the question: Are there any advantages using UEFI boot?
9 posts omitted.

You should spend less time at pol. LISP code looks like this:
[code]
(define (groessere-quadratsumme x y z)
(define (quadratsumme a b) (+ (* a a) (* b b)))
(cond ((and (< x y) (< x z)) (quadratsumme y z))
((and (< y x) (< y z)) (quadratsumme x z))
((and (< z x) (< z y)) (quadratsumme x y))
((= x y) (cond ((< x z) (quadratsumme x z))
(else (quadratsumme x x))))
((= z y) (cond ((> x z) (quadratsumme x z))
(else (quadratsumme z z))))
))
[/code]
Some people say LISP were an acronym for "Lots of irritating superfluuos parentheses". I don't think the parentheses in the image have a connection to pol.
>>176
Reposting code like >>>/gulag/633 suggested:

(define (groessere-quadratsumme x y z)
(define (quadratsumme a b) (+ (* a a) (* b b)))
(cond ((and (< x y) (< x z)) (quadratsumme y z))
((and (< y x) (< y z)) (quadratsumme x z))
((and (< z x) (< z y)) (quadratsumme x y))
((= x y) (cond ((< x z) (quadratsumme x z))
(else (quadratsumme x x))))
((= z y) (cond ((> x z) (quadratsumme x z))
(else (quadratsumme z z))))))


By the way, if you wonder what's the matter with LISP and GNU, GNU Emacs, one of first and most important programs of the GNU project is written in a certain LISP dialect, which makes it more extensible. Based on the experiences with that, Guile was created as a LISP interpreter that is easy to include in other software as a extension language. Also, the board of the FSF contains people like Sussman, who has designed Scheme LISP.

No, there are no advantages besides being able to install operating systems on newer hardware.

One big drawback of UEFI, is, you can't use it to boot from software RAID volumes as it only recognizes a single drive as the boot device.
>Are there any advantages using UEFI boot?
There are for the CIA and NSA. But not for you.

With mega.nz you get 50gb for free. Use that. It also encrypts your files.
>people can't afford USB drives
This is so fucking depressing

Anyway, I'm fairly certain all linux distros can mount windows partitions. You could always try booting into linux and mounting your windows partition somewhere, then move the files from windows to linux.

>>992
I will defiantly check this out
>>993
I know but for some reason when i was looking through my windows partition files the important programs were simply not there
why not just mount windows ntfs partition in fedora?
>>990
Windows does not support Linux filesystems, but Linux does support Windows filesystems. Format it as NTFS, then install ntfs-3g on Linux.

i'm trying to install Lubuntu on a chap windows 10, everything works but i only get the OEM installer option in which i have to set up partitions manually.
I'm not skilled enough for that, is there a command line to load the regular (non OEM) installer ?
where did the picture go?

This is the type of thread that you can write in every time you visit the site! You can do anything from use this as a personal log for your project, to sharing what you're hacking on at the moment, to critique something some else did in the thread, or request help with a bug you're struggling with. I'm looking forward to hearing what you guys are up to!
