invidious is shutting down Comrade 08/02/2020 (Sun) 22:12:49 No. 3816 [Reply] [Last]
So the author quits the invidious project, so what now ? It seems that other instances https://instances.invidio.us/ will continue but according to https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=24024230 the hole project is being abandoned. Here's the not from the project author: >Stepping away from open source >Published August 1, 2020, tags: invidious >Starting September 1st, I'm shutting down the user-facing portion of https://invidio.us 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.

>>4719 what makes Albanians so resistant to depression?
>>4720 how can you be depressed with so many beautiful bunkers everywhere?
>>4721 Imagine you're homeless. You're living in albania, you have a gun so you're not really worried about self-defence, because hoxha made guns so plentiful. You end up searching for a place to live, and all of a sudden you happen upon a little dome type bunker in the middle of nowhere. It's not being used, so you decide to live inside it. It keeps the rain off you, holds heat, has bugs for you to eat. The spirit of hoxha smiles upon you.

We train an AI to capitalism and when it inevitably buys out every company in existence we pull the plug.
>>4601 Create a social media network that matches people together based on their jobs and once i has a large enough user base in at least a few industries (you can directly target certain professions for advertising) use it to spread union propaganda or integrate it with a party or the iww or some shit

>>4601 Grocery store chains in particular utilize digitization to a significant degree today. Cash registers are directly connected to the inventory system, and keeping an eye on available stores only calls for cursory inspections and small corrections to make sure volumes coming in and going out more or less match. The internet permits that this data can, and often is, funneled up for processing and analysis, as is information from warehouses (which also use reports to resupply to shops). Similar technologies are used in many forms in many kinds of conglomerates. The problem with all this is the fact that this knowledge is atomized and spread out across several separate organizations and systems. If standardized data-forms for different purposes of such kind were created, and all parties would post their data openly and more or less in real-time, much greater efficiency, deeper society-wide analysis, and synergy could be achieved. Greater insight into the real, extant market and economy would without question incentivize more dynamic competition, and would also allow smaller (and more flexible) businesses to more easily find untapped niches and exploitable market-opportunities. All the technologies of this concept already exist and are being used as we speak. Computers and inventory systems, the internet, all the parts and pieces... The only thing that needs to be done is to put these parts together, to connect the systems. The boons of the internet and the information age should be taken to their full potential! Thank you for coming to my TED Talk. Quiet part: Of course all this would take corporations, the profit motive, and capitalist businesses in general a step towards obsolescence, since it is in all but name a system of decentralized planning. But don't tell Porky that.
>>4628 This is a great idea actually, although we should use Facebook or someshit
A computer program that functions as an interactive "book" by augmenting text with maps (and possibly other info). I was reading Plutarch's Lives and had to constantly refer back to the map at the beginning of the book to even have a clue of the spatiality of the conflicts described. Worse yet, there were no maps for the battles, like the famous naval battle of Salamis where the Greeks repelled the Persians. Imagine a computer program (or web site I guess), with text on the left side (directly from a book) and maps / info on the right. As the user advances from paragraph to paragraph, the map changes, updated with information from the text. Needless to say the data cannot be automatically gleaned from the text, it would have to be finely crafted by a human that understood the text perfectly. The ideal use case is a description of a battle, in which formations of soldiers would move on the map as you are reading about their maneuvers.

https://brave.com Is it a viable Firefox alternative for privacy or just another adware scam?
10 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>4399 But what if I am not a massive faggot?
No. Privacy goes beyond just gimmick anti-privacy tools that only make you stand out more - precisely by blocking things in a way that makes you unique. You should instead aim to stand out as little as possible. Tor Browser is best in this because it is specifically restricted in a way that website can't detect every little detail about your OS and browser, it tries to make every user appear as the same person. Not to mention that hiding your IP is the bare minimum (but far from enough).
>>4643 I just wish more sites didn't do deliberate degredation or denial of service to people using tor. I generally take the RMS approach of refusing to use such services but it makes so many things a pain.
>>4650 Some major websites who do that have alternative front-ends that can function also as proxies, e.g. invidious, nitter, bibliogram. In other cases, if I really want to access the website, I use such primitive methods as free web proxies. They work well enough even for posting comments under blog posts or news articles. However most websites don't necessarily even know they're blocking a chunk of their users or audience. That's because they use 3rd party tools that by default block Tor.
>>4386 Ungoogled Chromium or bust. Brave is botnet disguised as a "privacy-oriented" browser.

How to track someone on the internet Њардеџ 09/03/2020 (Thu) 23:08:43 No. 4610 [Reply] [Last]
Hello comrades, here in Serbia there are some right wingers who on social media attack leftist, dox them and over all make our lives worse, and all that on fake accounts. That is why I would like to know how to track them on the internet and dox back. Can you suggest some useful tutorials for that or books?

>>4294 Yeah and it's full of plants and animals that already thrive there. Maybe don't obliterate them with a geoengineering project whose consequences you can't fully grasp?
>>3974 Your math is off. 110,000 m3/d is not 110 km3/d. It's only 110 ML, which is enough to grow 22 ha of vegetables or 10 ha of rice for a season.

I need to recover deleted data from a hard drive that was formatted twice. Is it possible?
12 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>4572 That is usually due to file system corruption or a crash before sync. Is your hard drive failing? Post the output of the following command (use sudo if not root): # smartctl -a /dev/[drivename]
>>4573 Is there an equivalent for flash drives? I checked SMART on the HDD recently and it was fine. I'll check again tonight. I think that the corruption might have happened during a data transfer to a flash drive. Sorry that I wasn't clearer earlier, I'm kind of in a rush.
>>4575 Depends on the flash drive, but not usually. A failed flash drive usually produces read or write errors, so you can try running badblocks on it after the data is off.
Also, test your RAM.
>>4572 test with foremost and see the result.
