Not burger. MAP is a euphemism lolberts try to push, 'minor-attracted person' or some shit, so it comes up a lot on imageboards when they're being told to fuck off. Seeing the word next to liberation brings to mind their screeching.


imageboards fucked your brain


This is why it's easier to just host shit like this on a .onion and don't worry about these assholes.


Erase it from your brain. MAP means Multi-Animator Project. Retvrn to Warrior Cats.


oh cool warrior cats

Soundcloud wouldn't let me post this 10 minute Depeche Mode remix I spent 3 days working on, after mixing it during a live set.

If I can't post Depeche Mode remixes, what can I do on this shit ass platform? What am I paying 20 dollars a month for?

anyway, download that, steal this shit.


nice mix im kinda suprised they took it down but now that I think abt it alot of the copyright infringing material I see on soundcloud is kept hidden although gatekeeping leaks might not be super comparable to your predicament

The Internet Archive being in danger is another good reminder that YA writers fucking suck. Neil Gaiman especially is a hack.
Gaiman and some fucking Star Wars writer lol (and several other companies) are suing the Internet Archive to stop lending books due to copyright and it could potentially fuck over the site and by an extent, the Wayback Machine.

>intellectual property was a mistake
us programmerfags have been yelling that from the rooftops and pushing through free software that reverse engineers or replicates such "patented intellectual property ideas" for ages.

the biggest opposition to us have been precisely the kind of people who live off royalties instead of their labour, because they want to claim ownership of "work" like an idea or a performance in time (like book writers) which they can rent-seek off of in perpetuity.

attempting to restrict ideas through ownership or things that can be easily replicated, like information, is enforcement of artificial scarcity and an evil thing to do.

It comes from this misconception that your have individual innovations by individuals. Ignoring that innovations don't exist in a vacuum rather it is a process as a collective effort and the more you try to innovate on the individual level the less progress you actually make.


Feeling especially doomed tonight, lads.
>another good reminder that YA writers fucking suck.
True, but this was coming even without the YA writers cheerleading it. If everything goes according to keikaku for the publishing industry the legal precedent set here will end up screwing over a lot more people than just the IA.

archive.is is having a bunch of problems with some nginx BS. It fails to open properly then opens, then archive.ph stops working, and so on and so forth. It works ok in Tor, but you can't archive properly in tor because cloudflare gets stuck in a loop of captcha. It's enormously frustrating.

also Cloudflare has been blocking me from accessing sites on any browser except Tor, citing some BS about being flagged, even though I was opening sites like blogpost literally the day before. I thought it was my computer but checking with IsItDown shows it as a problem across the net. Fuck me.

Well it isn't like labouring pays badly, and it gives you the opportunity to go in to many well paid trades, just as my example and a very accessible one.
What does the potential mega-money of some coding jobs matter anyway when you cannot have time or the mental health to spend it?


When in doubt, make a calculator for something.


how about you program yourself a gf


I've tried for the fun of it years ago with various ai software and coding, but I realized it was a stupid thing to do when, as much as Cameron was a teen crush, I ought to live in reality and not a fantasy. The experience did give me a pretty thorough understanding of how difficult AI is and how important creating a friendly AI is to prevent a Skynet situation. No amount of rules in programming matter because if you teach an AI to be truly sentient, it will learn to break those rules.


Like what? Fahrenheit to Celsius?

FAGMAN hosts a lot of services on Tor, and every idiot running Brave is on the 'tor users' watchlist. Gotta try harder so NSA senpai will notice you.


Just like when CIA said US is exempt from their propaganda, they are 100% surveyed


NSA probably put you on a slightly higher focus the first time you pinged torproject.org, but also they spy on like anyone with an IP address so who cares


Also considering that anonymization has spread to even normie spaces, you should be reasonably obscured

The workers who moderate internet have always been underpaid and over traumatized, I even speak from experience, they have to see gruesome shit daily, even the mods of this site could relate

Apparently the ones that work for tiktok that work through a france based company in Colombia are thinking of unionizing
I was watching a tech show about it, and it's true when you think about it, how in the future we'll how crazy it was to put so many people through PTSD

If these people went on a strike, the internet would be 1000% worse, In a good and sad way though, It seems A.I will replace them

Do you have any thoughts on this job sector in tech that goes unnoticed mostly

That sounds like a valuable tool. An anon on 4chan was producing graphs that claimed to show posting frequency on ukraine threads correlated to certain happenings. Anything that gives us a better overview of wtf is going on is great.


Automated moderation is fucking awful (look at YouTube and reddit automod tools) and it's not just targetting CP or gore, it's being used as an automated censorship tool. With how the mainstream platforms operate to push the bourgie neolib orthodoxy and suppress dissent, automation (more than they already have) would make that even worse. Unless paired with radical transparency in moderation it's proliferation would advance the dystopian trajectory of the internet.
An obervation I've read here I agree with is if a platform has to use automated tool to keep out spam or illicit content it's become too big for it's own good.


It's done with so called perceptual hashes. So they're resistant to single pixel changes. Of course they can be circumvented, but they're resistant to cropping, resizing, shit like that, that normal hashing isn't.


They were right in that tools like this can be a free speech issue if not paired with extreme transparency in moderation which few places have, or are closed aource which most tools are.

All rightoids in hysterics about China and TikTok are useful idiots for this agenda. America is rapidly becoming worse than China when it comes to digital controls. As usual, the cries about authoritarian the west are really either hypocrisy or jealousy.

Anyone been having trouble with libgen lately? Books get about 75% downloaded and then the download fails. I used to never have this problem. I get partial files as a result.

Another thing I noticed is files start of downloading very quickly, and then the speed rapidly decreases before coming to a total halt.


try other mirrors. It's free shit so the servers will be strained.


yeah i ended up using annas-archive and it worked

tell me the best ways to block all explicit content while surfing the net. there should be an AI or something that detects explicit files on imageboards and similar sites and blurs those images, ideally

>AI network level solution
nah I think encryption and stuff would get in the way, and that would be too nuch for a locally hosted AI, ane impractical for a VPS hosted VPN with that applied aven if you could get around that.

Could use your /etc/hosts file, add " riskof.coom" to a new line and save. Should block the site in most cases. That's what I usually do when wanting to eliminate distractions.

Darknet markets are as close as it gets to a free market, where you can order drugs and have it delivered to you by mail. The purpose of this thread is to discuss opsec, ask for help and discuss markets in general. This thread should be fully legal as long as you don't solicit or facilitate illegal transactions, meaning:

&ltDon't beg to buy from someone
&ltDon't attempt to sell to anyone here
&ltDon't link to dealer Instagram/Reddit/Snapchat accounts. These accounts are run by either scammers or feds.
&ltDon't directly link to any market. These links could be fake scam/fed markets, designed to phish your login details and steal your cryptocurrency. Only use https://dark.fail/

The following is my personal recommendation for good opsec while conducting business, however, you must [b]read the darknet market bible[/b] (.pdf attached) after you are done with this post. If you don't read theory, it's likely you will be caught and convicted.

>Will I be 100% safe?

In theory, no. The darknet market bible, together with this thread, is meant to minimize the risk of getting caught as much as possible. If you follow the exact procedure outlined in the bible, you should be okay, especially as a small-time buyer.

Tails is an Linux-based operating system that runs entirely on your RAM and is wiped when PC is powered off. If the cops intercept your item, conduct a controlled delivery and seize your machine, they will not be able to find evidence linking you to the package and you can deny involvement via a lawyer.
You will want to install the Tails operating system to a USB flash drive with at least 8GB of storage. Personally, I'd go for USB 3.0, with at least 16GB storage for persistent volume purposes, or even 128GB or more if you want to store the Monero local node on it. You also need a PC with at least 1GB RAM to run Tails. The bible contains a guide for installing Tails in [b]2.A.2 Installing Tails[/b]. You can download it here:

According to local monero, the full blockchain is now ~115GB, which probably means that the pruned chain is 4+GB

I hate blockchain so fucking much, when will we get a p2p that doesn't inherently suck ass on every level?

Seriously, buying drugs online is supercool but who ever thought it was a good idea to store every fucking transaction ever on a immutable log file? It is so fucking stupid i hate it so much, all cryptobros need to get shot in the ass fuckfuckfuck


>pruned chain is 4+GB
I meant 40+ obviously


>p2p that doesn't inherently suck ass on every level?
Isn't that pretty much everything other than blockchain?


So you don't know how Monero works. Unlike bitcoin, transactions cannot be tracked back to you. When you are controlling a node, you can wipe/not save all the logs you want. Nobody is forcing you to keep logs on yourself lol

I never understood the appeal of LED fans. Yes I did have a LED PC phase when I was in my 20's but I've mellowed out to a more subdued look, No LEDs,. just letting the performance of the computer speak for itself in a nice MicroATX case, with no windows. And it has a nice big 200mm or so fan in the front with a fan filter. And it does have 2 5.25 inch bays, one I put in a Blu-Ray/DVD Drive so I can watch the DVDs I collected over the years.


>I don't like pretty things SO WHY DOES EVERYONE ELSE
Want a cookie for that?


No, bright LEDs are more obnoxious than anything else and the whole 'Gamer" look is overpriced junk that looks ugly as hell.

Not exclusively. Aesthetics are certainly important to many but a more expensive case often has different properties in other ways in terms of materials, function/capability, and in some cases manufacturing and other factors that influence its price.

I'm from this era. There were a lot of differences back then and aside from some of the more extensive mods (often done for shows, LAN events and more ) the features and support that we used to have to mod in at considerable expense were eventually adopted into new classes of cases for enthusiasts which was generally a good thing. However, the increasing financial and technical accessibility of PC gaming in the 2000s and definitely by the 2010s meant that things evolved but not always for the best. There's a lot more to discuss about the changes since that era, but its not as simple as most make it out to be.

Most office cases were made with horrid compatibility for components (often using non-standard mobos, PSUs and others at times), bad cooling potential and the like. They were meant for massmarket, price point focused for businesses. I think one could pick enthusiast cases from older eras that had better features and similar aesthetics. For instance, I had the LianLi 6070A in one of my early custom builds which was full aluminum (old LianLi was full aluminum, modern LianLi is sadly often aluminum only on the outside and steel structure or other materials) and had a very clean aesthetic

>Gamer Aesthetic

A lot of this is really just contrarianism because it has become more common. Its just like hating RGB LEDs. Back in the day we would have killed for addressable RGB that was standardized and worked. Sure, people who leave everything looking like rainbow vomit isn't the look I prefer, but the "I'm going to go out of my way to not have any LEDs because I am a mature sophisticated person unlike those GAMERS" contingent strikes me as trying way too hard and looks ridiculous. Just about every set of decent RGB features can be turned off entirely or controlled to whatever color profile you wish. You want a single color or twPost too long.
