>>5089 sure thing Red Hat Inc. employee
Conceivably the glows could sneak in hidden backdoors that cannot be discerned without considerable difficulty. That won't be stopped by using hipster operating systems though. Linux is far more audited than those have been.
>>5092 Yep, this is the same issue with people using supposedly more private forks of Firefox. They end up using a much less secure web browser that also makes them much more fingerprintable.
>>5092 >>5094 Linux, the kernel is audited to hell and back. But there are many more components to operating systems than just that, and each of them adds additional surface area to an attack. The big example to call out for this is of course SystemD, which took over many functions other more decentralized manageable components did. Since it came from Fedora, a forprofit entity, it also is a reasonable source to distrust the main distros which all use it. Being able to work with several obscurer OSses would add a lot of security to whatever you're doing, since having a more varied OS ecosystem will give more hurdles to any would-be attacker. This makes things like OpenBSD, Qubes-Whonix or even Gentoo very useful in allowing at least some to keep their safety guaranteed. Similarly with Firefox, it added many more components to itself in recent years that all form additional potential entry points into the system. If the fork in question is a more stripped down version of it (which is often the case) and still takes the main security updates that are added as they are found (which is always the case), they end up being safer against attack. Your point regarding fingerprinting still stands though, but it there are many vague sidechannels that can compromise your browserprints with relative ease.

comrades, i need to buy work from home laptop so give me advice which ones are good please Comrade 09/30/2020 (Wed) 16:08:29 No. 5058 [Reply] [Last]
Just want to earn my paycheck to feed myself from something that will work for at least 4+ years and be durable in a chaotic home environment. I heard stuff about how the new ryzen laptops are crazy good worth of money for the consumer. Don't know much about cpus wars. Only want to be able to do my work fast on it without lagging under heavy load. Will be using many many browser tabs, excel sheets, word documents, and pdf softwares. No games or anything. Just work. What durable laptops would you suggest for these purposes in the $300-500 dollar range. I just want to fully utilize my purchasing power while buying this laptop because i'm kinda loaning the money from somebody else ;-;

>>5073 >Will this Acer survive for 4+ years? >Graphics Chipset Brand AMD Avoid laptops with AMD or NVidia discrete gpus, those laptop gpus have high failure rates, often double digit percentages, unlike Intel igpus which have <0.1% failure rate. MAYBE the Radeon Vega igpus from AMD will be fine, but they haven't been out long enough to determine their durability. Find out what the specific GPU model is. >Resolution HD (1366 X 768) Pixels Too small resolution for my taste, wouldn't settle for less than 900 pixel height. See if you can find 1400x900, 1600x900, 1920x1080, etc. If the screen is glossy (which it usually is nowadays) instead of matte, you might want to also buy an laptop screen anti-glare filter. >Hard Disk Description Mechanical Hard Drive Are you unable to find one with an SSD? >Processor Brand AMD >Processor Type Core i3 3220 Specs look like they're completely riddled with mistakes, find out what the actual processor is. This looks like a scam. Also I would try to make sure it's a fanless laptop. >Will be using many many browser tabs, excel sheets, word documents, and pdf softwares. No games or anything. Just work. You can't make money off excel/word, this isn't 1993. Expert knowledge in html, css, php, laravel, mysql, js, bootstrap, node.js, react, jquery, angularjs, vuejs, json and mongodb are the minimum requirements today (you can probably get by with just the first 7), which would take months to learn. Throw in some knowledge of http, apache, nginx, dom, xml, csv, and maybe python, django, beautifulsoup for good measure. >I just want to fully utilize my purchasing power while buying this laptop because i'm kinda loaning the money from somebody else ;-; You won't be able to pay back your loan without a real job.

A cheap used Thinkpad. That's all anyone needs.
For the usual office work or even programming many laptops could work. Get decent processors and enough RAM, and that should be fine, and there's isn't a requirement for the most LEET gaming GPUs. If the operating system matters, then one with that already preinstalled could be considered. Most should have that anyways. But libre software is good to have installed.

Can you believe AMD beat Intel even on laptops? >Will be using many many browser tabs, excel sheets, word documents, and pdf softwares. No games or anything. Just work. Though honestly you should just get an old thinkpad if you're going to do only this much. They're durable, alright.

Boomer family left me hundreds of blank floppies. (You know how Boomers love to collect things they don't use, which invariably become obsolete and become e-waste; they left thousands of blank CDs, DVDs, a zip-drive and about 6 old laptops and a few ancient desktops too. Because they refused to give anything away when they upgraded their stuff.) Any ideas for what I can do with the floppies?
>>5042 if there something importing on it you can try to back them up or try to smelt them, or glue them together to form cube or pencil holder or what ever post pics of what you made
If they still work and you don't want them sell em on eBay or gumtree or whatever Retro enthusiasts still use that shit
You could use them to backup anything important you want to last.
>Floppies Those are not good for backup, and the typical storage amount isn't much for today's applications anyways. >CDs, DVDs These could be decent media for backup, but it depends. Sometimes the data layer can be degraded, if it isn't stored properly or utilizing materials that last long.
If there are any rare, important programs on it, and they aren't already on the Archive, upload them.

Indeed, OP. I am excited. I figure some one is going to pick this up and restore the windows xp project. We could see the rebirth of, frankly, a very nice and stable operating system. I think it will be a cool thing to witness.
The only people happy about this are nostalgic retards too dumb for Linux like >>5016 and hackers hoping to find exploits that haven't been patched yet (unlikely). I for one hope this helps the Wine project, but they probably won't touch this in fear of lawsuits. Thank you copyright law!

Bypassing Twitters' Phone Number Registration Comrade 04/24/2020 (Fri) 13:18:50 No. 1371 [Reply] [Last]
Anyone know of a reliable way to get a fake phone number for when social media accounts force it upon you? I keep trying those 'receive SMS' websites but all the numbers are already used by the time I get to them. Also, you don't need to remind me how they all spy on you, I know, I just need this to conduct business directly with clients, nothing more.

Let's talk VPNs Comrade 01/27/2020 (Mon) 15:36:01 No. 119 [Reply] [Last]
I was using riseup.net as a VPN, but, now cloudflair (The upstream provider for the site) is blocking it. Furthermore, it's come to my attention that riseup boofed their canary after the FBI requested server logs. They are glowin the darks, for real, and confirmed. What VPN would you suggest anon? What VPN, if any, do you use. I was thinking of routing all my traffic over tor, but, currently the site still blocks tor traffic. Help me out guys, I feel naked, thanks.

>>4900 Would like to echo the same problems. Can't we have a temp ban on tor posting after a raid or something? Or at the very least make tor posting without pics/files always okay. Then make photos a captcha thing? What's the worst that could happen if you allow tor text posting? I mean if frequent posting became an issue put a cooldown on the threads so that they can only get posted to every 10 seconds or something. This gives jannies enough time to see if there is a problem. Making tor posting so annoying is definitely an mistep imo for an obscure leftist chan. I've also thought about this >>4646. No pol-tard wishing to raid is going to know that these boards are less protected. Anyways I think we should all agree here that text-only tor posting should be unhindered.
>>4900 >For me "block bypass" works 99% of the time. Good for you, but what about posting pics? It's also probably only because Cloudflare doesn't have the resources to block all Tor nodes (yet), but they can block all proxies on proxy lists even if there's a delay between them appearing on said lists and them getting blocked as "known spammer" IP's. Obviously most of them haven't been used for spam on this site, but they're blocked on every site that uses Cloudflare. These are the proxy sites I know of, whose proxies are all blocked within a day or two in the rare case where one works at first: https://www.sslproxies.org https://proxy-list.org http://www.proxylisty.com http://www.freeproxylists.net It's good if the block bypass works for Tor, but especially on a site like this it's pretty fucked that anonymity must be compromised at all. 8chan used Cloudflare but didn't implement Cloudflare's spam blocks (except after raids), at least when I still posted there. I just tried as a test to post on 8kun with a proxy and a VPN and it works, too. If a hangout for far-right white supremacist terrorists can do that, why can't a mostly reasonable left-wing site?
>>4904 I totally agree about imageposting, that's something that frustrates me too, although sometimes it still works if you're lucky. I've even been thinking of using Whonix+VPN setup just to bypass that, but it's not worth the trouble. >It's good if the block bypass works for Tor, but especially on a site like this it's pretty fucked that anonymity must be compromised at all. In what way is anonymity any more compromised when using "block bypass"? Mods can see that your posts come from the same exit node, it's all IP-based AFAIK. Nothing stops your from creating a new circuit or restarting your Tor Browser session.
>>4905 >it's not worth the trouble Ideally there wouldn't be any trouble at all in the first place... >In what way is anonymity any more compromised when using "block bypass"? That's not what I was referring to. I meant blocking proxies and VPN's is fucked up since that compromises anonymity. It's not really this site's fault but rather Cloudflare's spam blocking, but I think having Cloudflare's spam blocking on a site like this is pretty fucked up to begin with. I mentioned 8chan and now 8kun not having those, when its users are constantly advocating for violence based on race, gender, etc... so why does a far more reasonable site like this need those kinds of anti-spam measures? If the block bypass worked with all proxies, VPN's and Tor nodes, then that'd be great, but it doesn't. It's good if it usually works with Tor, and for me the consequences would most likely be only a fine in the worst case so I don't need a proxy like I said and which is how I'm posting here right now, but I assume >>4635 for example is referring to more serious consequences. How can the proletariat of the world unite if uniting is made hardest for those who need it the most?
So I've literally just tried over fifty proxies today and none of them worked even after doing the "block bypass" captcha. All still gave the exact same error message: >Your IP was recognized as a known spammer. Cloudflare has really rammed up those anti-proxy "defences", it seems. Good to see people on /gulag/ are complaining about it too, but will that actually accomplish anything?

>>4984 same question, just want to know if someone managed to fix the broken bunkerchan rss feeds
The connections themselves are only as secure as your connection setup. It's your job to use a vpn or set up tor for all your traffic, if you feel the need to do something like that for youtube feeds and streams. Since this only handles feeds, and watching or downloading the streams themselves is done with another program, presumably you already have your preferred security measures set up for that other program, so route this one through the same setup. For adding extra fluff to the request headers to hide in the crowd you can use GetFeed.get_headers. The default request looks like this: GET /feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=... HTTP/1.1 Host: www.youtube.com User-Agent: ... Accept-Encoding: gzip Connection: close and the equivalent for invidio instances.
Bongino is in the process of moving to Rumble (.com) because YT's SJW tendancies are disheartening, and eventually will necessitate the move. But Rumble's /c/<user> page is, no surprise, nothing like YT's channel feed. And I can't code my way out of a box. Any chance of QuiteRSS updating to interpret Rumble's feeds?
>>4993 Hmm. There's this http createfeed.fivefilters.org/index.php?url=https%3A%2F%2Frumble.com%2Fc%2FBongino&in_id_or_class=video-item--a&max=5&order=document But it can't, for example, tell what the video is called, nor will it play/show pictures internal to Qrss but choosing the <no title> to be opened externally brings up the latest video. Doesn't at this time show any of the other videos in the channel though; not with those settings.
