It seems be par the corse. Yahoo users got their logins leaked in 2013 because Yahoo kept their logins in plain text on their servers as if was still the 1970s yet Yahoo still exists. In 2019 someone managed to get a backup of Facebook's servers and leaked it.

A USB drive of mine corrupted with stuff on it. Its not important stuff but it would be cool to get it back. I don't know much about tech so I was wondering if you smart bois could at least tell me if there's realistically anything I can do to fix the drive or if its game over.

I'm using a mac and using dick utility it gave the following result when I ran first aid:

Repairing file system.
** /dev/rdisk2s1

Invalid BS_jmpBoot in boot block: 000000

File system check exit code is 8.
Updating boot support partitions for the volume as required.
File system verify or repair failed.
Operation failed…

Is there anything I can do to fix the drive or should I just use some fancy software to recover as much as possible?

You could try opening a terminal and typing 'sudo fsck /dev/rdisk2s1'. IDK if the disk utility already uses fsck under the hood. It might give you more options.

Are computers a branch of state/defense/power within the context of a communist party?
It seems they are only treated as tools for mass propaganda and outreach for most I've come into contact with (and with questionable results – amounting to retweeting each other or posting take downs as Facebook posts with hardly any engagement). Is this way of using the technology maybe a huge mistake setting us back currently, especially considering the media platforms often are confirmed police/SIGINT tools where our groups are indisputably targeted/sabotaged?

free streaming services are still a thing. the only downside is that if you hove no idea how to use an adblock you get shit ton of ads but its still like ten times more convinient than netflix. or any tv shit for that matter, "smart tvs" are just a way to spy on people. just buy a large monitor or some shit if you really think you need it.

Anyone have a setup to play downloaded content on the TV?

My current top goal would be to have:
>VPN torrent downloads + easy web interface to add torrents or easy way to upload content via local network
>reasonably cheap
>HDMI

I was reading online and I'm thinking of getting a cheap raspberry pi, installing something nice, and getting an external HDD which are now very cheap.

Interested in learning what setup you have if any.

I haven't seriously pirated shit in like 10 years but it's gotten so annoying. Please help me piracy chads in establishing a flow.

I have a Google Shield (just a device that has Android TV, capable of installing apps), a television and an external HDD.

I would love to simply add a torrent and have that downloaded/available on my device somehow. I remember their used to be this solution where you could add series names and they would be automatically downloaded/extracted/placed on your device.

The STEM student -> defense contractor pipeline is a serious issue in this country. In many places and some fields, a greater majority of available jobs are like defense contractors. That shit is bleak and horrifying man. They'll be like "assist in creating autonomous ai for delivering payloads towards targets" and knowing exactly what they mean lol. I took a robotics software class where we discussed "efficiently tracking multiple moving targets with distinct trajectories" as like an academic problem and briefly wondered if I hadn't chosen the wrong field of study.

Yeah. i majored in aerospace engineering because I was going through a pilot phase in highschool and wanted a "backup" degree before doing piloting; plus thought planes were cool as shit. turns out that (i) piloting is an objectively shit job and I'm not crazy enough about flying boats emitting tons of pollution to do that shit and (ii) a majority of jobs in the aerospace industry are for the military industrial complex. I fucked up bad bros.

People would probably not care about some random queer failsons fifteen years doing IT work for the weapons manufacturer if they didn’t position themselves as some poor put upon marginalized personality who jockeys for social power on Twitter. Pretty important context!
A fairly common issue within queer “spaces” (and if we are being honest plenty more ‘marginalized’ leftism-as-aesthetics social groups) is that people aggravate the most for social power & woe-is-me clout consistently end up, uh, being full of bullshit affectations.

Comrades, we need a thread on privacy. Any decent activist should try ways of staying anonymous on the web and prevent being tracked by governments and corporations.General tips===* Use free software as much as you can.* Use GNU/Linux and keep it up-to-date, to be sure that you don't have unpatched security exploits* Don't use Flash Player, use youtube-dl instead for watching streaming videos online* Do not use Google, use DuckDuckGo or StartPage instead* Use a password manager like Keepass or for GNU/Linux users keepassx. Create new passwords for every site that you visit and use a strong password as a master password. A tip for easy remembering of your master password is to use a sentence. "i fucking love cookies and tits!" with extra capital characters etc. is easier to remember than some random characters and long enough to prevent brute force attacks of any kind.* Use the Tor Browser Bundle if you really want to stay anonymous.Firefox====* Go to Preferences -> History and set History to "Never remember history". * See for additional tweaks: https://github.com/amq/firefox-debloat and https://vikingvpn.com/cybersecurity-wiki/browser-security/guide-hardening-mozilla-firefox-for-privacy-and-securityAdd-ons-----------* Use uBlock Origin for preventing tracking etc. Bonus: use hard-mode to manually whitelist external domains on sites. Don't use uBlock but be sure to use uBlock Origin https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Blocking-mode:-hard-mode* HTTPS Everywhere* DecentralEyes: prevents CDN hosting from tracking you (Google for Jquery etc.)* Self Destructing Cookies: only allow cookies that you choose to allowOS==* Encrypt your hard drive or home partition at least* If you use GNU/Linux, you can try to restrict systemd or syslog from logging. * Use a distribution which takes security seriously. Also, be sure that you don't install a lot of things outside the repository. It will cover most of your needs.Real life tips===* Pay with cash if you canFeel free to provide tips to each other comrades!

Ok so apparently there's a "slimmed" "faster" version of a youtube proxy (in the same vein of invidious) called "Piped". But whenever I use it on Tor Browser the performance is terrible. Any code fags able to explain why that is? There's something very weird with the site code, the buggy nature reminds me of the similar displeasure of using lemmygrad.ml's weird site code on Tor Browser. What is it with both site's codebase that lends itself to such poor performance on secured browsers?

No, why?
My statement has nothing to do with tor "speeds", I know the tor network is on average several times slower than your regular connection due to onion routing. I'm talking about how fucking weird and wonky the presumably JS code is. Like you will press a button and it won't even register. Other buttons will work sometimes but also not, refresh will be unresponsive, etc.
