Do you have to mine crypto to make enough money to buy computer hardware now ? Is this becoming a new destructive feature of capitalism, like when they destroyed new cars that came fresh from the assembly line during the great recession.

I don't thinking workstations can reliability earn enough to pay for themselves with how ridiculously OP mining rings are (as you are in professional render farm territory) and how the more processing power mining crypto, the harder the hash gets for everyone.


how many render farms do you need until they pay for a workstation ?
Like what is the ratio, do you have to run 50 computers to be able to use one ?
How does the energy efficiency compare to computers from the nineties if you account for the "crypto overhead"

Well if you look at the picture above, the mining rig is running ten RTX 3060ti and a 3090 is not even double the power of a single 3060ti so this mining rig will still have around ten times the GPU power of the beefiest PC rig. This is the kind of setup you are going be going up against from professional miners that can have entire racks of these things. Professional miners also have less trouble acquiring GPUs since they buy them by the pallet thus can order from distributors directly.

Computers from the 90s used less wattage but were less efficient in processing power per watt.


Upside: this might be a blow to Big Data because the trend of storage becoming cheaper is reversing.

I know that if I run my own instance of searx is the most private way to search things up. But what about public instances of searx like search.snopyta.org, are they any safer than just using pure duckduckgo? Because I am still trusting a 3 party with my data, the only other advantage that I see using a public instance of searx is that is completely open source. Are there any other positives?

I feel like google has really gone downhill lately, like they keep giving me results they think I want instead of what I ask for. Idk maybe it's me


Elliptic curve cryptography has, to my knowledge, no special weakness that makes it easy for quantum computers to break it.


Considering that DuckDuckGo is shit now, i'd like to ask: is there any advantage in using this in DuckDuckGo's place in your everyday browser? Or are the advantages exclusively Tor related?

i don't know what that means, what needs to happen for sci-hub to continue functioning as normal ? It's a fundamental to human civilization at this point. Why doesn't anybody put down the CopyrightSS ?



This is an ed2k link, you'll need something that can access the edonkey network to download it, like emule. Your best source for French comics is emulebdz, a forum that posts ed2k links to pretty much everything that gets ripped or scanned in French.

I really like this images, Does anyone know who artist is?
Edited to remove that text at bottom.


It looks like until the court hearings end, sci-hub will remain paralyzed.


The artist is Bruno Loth: https://www.bedetheque.com/auteur-12827-BD-Loth-Bruno.html

By the way, the volume 2 came out in January, and most of the French comic scanners/rippers have a rule that they won't release a comic until 6 months after it gets published, so it'll be on emulebdz in July probably. If you're don't want to wait until then, you can buy a digital on izneo, and quite easily rip it yourself:

How is Telegram? I've been seeing RT shilling it as a Twitter alternative. Is there a major Left presence there?

Posts that glow in the dark.


Letting perfect security be the enemy of good security is glow


For the last time I'm not using your honeypots like Signal or Telegram when XMPP exists.


no one uses xmpp, and it doesnt have cryptography natively….
not all implementations integrate with omemo and its ass and ugly and annoying, plus again no one uses it
Whats the problem with Signal? also there's p2p fork of Signal… not a great idea but also federated servers take effort so i guess for most people centralized makes sense here, its not optimal but fr what did Signal do to compromise security? they do real e2ee that is supposedly authenticated on each client, and its open source afaik so whats the deal
no matter what your metadata is fucked pretty much
also xmpp is federated too… so its also kinda ass for that


What about Session?

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/!

whats the advantage of ethereum over bitcoin


>Does not generate dividends
Go look at Aave or Compound, or one of many other already working Defi projects, then come back and tell me that.


Smart contracts, mining is getting removed, many other better features. It's not perfect, but Bitcoin is merely a store of value, while Ethereum is a effectively a whole platform running most of the other successful crypto projects.

We're on a new board, so why not a new desktop thread? Let's keep this board active. Hopefully a fresh thread will draw some activity.

You know the drill: post your desktops, talk rice, etc etc.

It's a mixed bag. Where I live, the public transportation is fairly reliable, you just have to live in the city. In the surrounding towns and country, the bus comes once every hour at best.


>Is there a way out of this nightmare?
A lot of people would die


>surveilance capitalism or barbarism, no inbetween
Take out that flag.


the path to revolution and revolution are both paved with the blood of innocents

are you a cringe reformist?

Although he still hasn't regained his position at MIT, Richard Stallman is returning to the board of the Free Software Foundation.


How will the corporate apologists, identarian social climbers, and Microsoft agents who smeared him in the first place respond to this?

Here is an entire thread of leftypol comrades downplaying the effects of this same kind of woke bullshit that rms is dealing with.
For people who care about free software, the current left-wing of american politics doesn't seem like an ally at all.


It's a shit show. Braindead idpol or ancap nutters. Can't say I have a solution, but anyone who thinks the AOC-types are an ally is not a communist.

Sometimes while using the onion website it says my posts are flood for dozens of minutes on end.
Could you possibly fix that?
Is there something i should do to fix that?


whenever someone is using the TOR node to spam it counts towards the specific connections post limit(to prevent flooding). So it's likely you're trying to make one post after someone tried to use it to spam and you hit the same limit.


When I tried visiting this site from Tor it just said that I am not allowed to do that.
