Does anyone know anything about Thermal Goggles/Scopes? I heard right wingers talking about wanting to use rural camouflage against us.
>>

sure, if you have like 15k to burn. very few people even own NVG's and thermals are substantially more expensive - I wouldn't worry about it. moreover, a space blanket lined with some insulating fabric can assist with hiding. the taliban just use blankets when they are in a hurry

I have no idea what exists on the lower end of the scale, including older technologies. Where I'm at, a modern chip putting out 50hz with auto non-uniformity correction is going run you ~$7000 while goggles are about double or more (collimation and bridging gets expensive). I am in Canada, but you don't save much in America either.
I actually got a chance to demo PVS-31's with clip-on thermals - great stuff, but very front heavy and bulky. Whiplash injuries with advent of helment-mounted NVG's has always been a problem and it's going to get worse unless more effort is put into reducing size/weight. Iirc Act in Black of Luxembourg makes some of the lightest, durable dual-tube NVG's today. The very high-end shit from L3 uses a small, integrated germanium lens which solves this, but access is limited to super sekrit government work.
As for the space blanket, you actually don't need much space at all - just enough insulative layers, the Mylar and some kind of adhesive (Velcro) to prevent the layers from separating.

I recently gotten myself on some books on how to do Java Script again. I came here today to ask what is the programming languages that are worth learning.

Because I think that people still use Java Script but not as nearly as much as other programs. I want to do this on my off time as I look for a job again. That way I can just have something useful other than my knowledge of historic events and wanting to preserve the artifacts.

Ok if you are interested there are 2 websites where Onyx sells their Boox, but this one is the official one: https://shop.boox.com/

The other one is Russian and they take longer to get the firmware updates.

Also before you buy check out this video review of it to see if it’s up your alley.

https://youtu.be/ASYlLCROscw

Personally I paid 600$ for it when it came out and love it really. It’s worth it based on how many books I have on there already. The battery life could use some improvement as if you browse the internet on it, it will last only 2-3 days. Eink uses power when the screen changes so for normal reading it lasts like 2-3 weeks.

I've heard in an older video that Linus Torvalds uses Fedora, and I read on Stallman's webpage that he presently uses a newer distro called Trisquel GNU/Linux.

>That's hardly surprising since it isn't a problem with the operating system. Your machine is incapable of meeting your excessive expectations of it. Even the lowly Intel Atom line of CPUs out-perform the Pentium N3540. Once you go beyond basic email and simple web-browsing, that machine simply is not going to cope.


>Hi everyone, sadly all recommendations did not change anything. However I've been testing a Fedora 33 live image with Xfce and things works perfectly, I've been in more than three meetings with Google Meet (even sharing my screen) and one with Zoom and had no problem at all. I know my hardware isn't very good, but I was sure the problems were not all due to my machine. All my experiences and "experiments" with this issue suggest to me that this is a Debian related issue as I had the same trouble with Debian-based distros. I think I will change to Fedora permanently as this solved my problem. Thank you all for your help and your time.

>Pluton acts as a hardware root-of-trust, which in simple terms protects a device’s hardware from tampering, such as from hardware implants or by hackers exploiting flaws in the device’s low-level firmware. By integrating the chip inside future Intel, AMD and Qualcomm central processor units, or CPUs, it makes it far more difficult for hackers with physical access to a computer to launch hardware attacks and extract sensitive data, the companies said.
>The chip comes with immediate benefits, like making hardware attacks against Windows devices far more difficult to succeed. But the chip also solves a major security headache by keeping the device’s firmware up-to-date.
>Microsoft declined to say if it planned to offer the Pluton chip designs to other chip makers or if it planned to make the designs open-source for anyone to use, but said it plans to share more details in the future, leaving the door open to the possibility

Because having to choose between the AMD and IME botnets wasn't enough, Microsoft is going to add its own backdoor to pretty much ALL processors.

>all hail the new security chiperino, it will make puter safe
it's an old story it has been retold for decades, every single time it plays out the same. Everybody trusts the black box magic, making it exponentially more lucrative to break the security of the chip, because so much rests on this one pillar. The chip gets owned, and all the hardware has to be thrown out and be replaced with new wares. It's a racket.

i hope somebody finds a way to use this to lock open hardware.
