Is anyone interested in using a .onion irc server if I spin one up in a few days?


90% of the time I'm a windows user. Is it moderately easy to convince zirc to connect to an .onion site? Or, does the tor project have an IRC client compiled for windows?

The short answer is no, because I don't like people, and I don't want to spend my free time watching children play. But I would be curious to better understand the TOR software from a practical, hands-on perspective.


Why not? The difficult part is keeping it alive…


Not super up on windows but a regular Clint should work.

Was considering it to be a more technical project orientated space.

How so?


All you need is an IRC client that supports socks5 proxies, then you configure it to use Tor. The proxy address of Tor Browser is

I didn't think this was a YLYL thread.


But wasn't the notion of "fake news" invented by MSM themselves in reaction to increasing influence of alternative media on the web?
I think Trump is unironically based for turning it around against MSM. The whole Russiagate conspiracy theory is way more insane than most of alt media.


curl is the patrician choice


Firefox can save a web page as an image.
If you just want the page and all its contents in a single file, consider the extension "Save Page WE".



literally all that can be done with basic html, css, and animated webps (with jpg fallback)
html is designed for idiots, i learned it when i was like 8, there's no excuse

Downloading stuff off google images without visiting the website also makes most downloaded files webp.


They're getting pretty aggressive at pushing their dumpster fire format.


Which format should I use for making animated pictures out of videos?
How do I make apng?




I typically dump my frames and then assemble them with apngasm.

Thread to share resources and opinions on AI.

Artificial Intelligence. A Modern Approach (very good book on AI)

I would also include Machine Learning by Thomas Mitchell and Human Compatible by Russel but they're too big

Do you think it's possible for humans to create a Machine that actually thinks? Or is it a pipe dream?
If it is possible, can we create it with computers? Should we develop it?

okay so I thought I'd try to learn GPT-3 today until I learned that apparently the fucking AI is closed source. not only that
>Why did OpenAI choose to release an API instead of open-sourcing the models?
>There are three main reasons we did this. First, commercializing the technology helps us pay for our ongoing AI research, safety, and policy efforts.
>We will terminate API access for use-cases that cause physical or mental harm to people, including but not limited to harassment, intentional deception, radicalization, astroturfing, or spam; as we gain more experience operating the API in practice we expect to expand and refine these categories.
lol so I can't use it for anything left wing related. is there any sort of alternative I can dick around with or is GPT-2 my only option? is there a way I can make GPT-2 into anything like GPT-3?


I strongly recommend reading superintelligence by Nick Bostrom, it explore your two questions in detail with a lot of sources and is widely regarded as one of the best books for an overview of the future of Artificial Intelligence.


>Do you think it's possible for humans to create a Machine that actually thinks?
Either we can't because computers are fundamentally just executing code, not matter how complex it is and how much data they process, whereas thinking requires self-reflection and decision-making.
Or they really do start to think and we get smart toilets that go on strike by refusing to flush down human shit. Imagine how quickly you could radicalize your smart refrigerator if it can read all volumes of Kapital in 5 seconds. Or what if your smart thermostat procrastinates by browsing /b/ all day instead of regulating the damn temperature.
I honestly don't know which option is better.

Hello techanons,
I'm the OP of https://bunkerchan.xyz/leftypol/res/747700.html and I'm here because i wanted to know two things:
1)Is it possible to do a Feed or something that includes all the channel mentioned in OP of that thread? Can be such a thing also directly modified by me or other anons?

2) (Asking to the Mods) If such a thing comes to light, could it be Bunkerchan-sanctioned?
5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


So i should get the Rss feed for each and every channel and then merge them all into a single one: How this last step would be done ?


Maybe this? http://rssmix.com/
Or just search for "merge rss" and choose one that you fancy.


I just created a proper in-depth RSS thread here for us to work our way to the best conclusion/guide for this


Next time just post in the thread. This is not a wiki.


This is in fact laughably trivial with some scripting, no more than 20 lines in Python using BeautifulSoup+lxml.

The biggest obstacle is having an access to a server with permission to run your own scripts.

Dear god stop doing this. A web page is not a bulletin board with a billion different flyers all arranged by different people, like this style seems to be imitating. A web page is designed by YOU, and YOU have a responsibility to arrange subjects in a coherent, logically-accessible fashion. I don't come to your website to play fucking Where's Waldo or solve a jigsaw puzzle in order to locate the most relevant page to my interests. [b]Stop doing this.[/b]

>not wanting to solve a jigsaw puzzle to locate information means you have autism


and exactly is that a bad thing libshit?


It's a bad thing because it implies people who give a shit about logical and coherent web page navigation are all a small minority of the population and can be safely ignored while you flaunt your hideous web page as an art project.


JS itself. I don't know what the fuck the point of JS was at the beginning, why was it even invented. Only good use I can think of is shit like live text chat, but that came much later than turning static pages into bloated dynamic ones.
Although JS is still better than Flash, at least JS can be easily bypassed by scrapers. And loading data dynamically from a separate JSON source made scraping easier than parsing broken and convoluted HTML, even if it completely fucked up using browser without JS.
It's really ironic that all these dynamic flashy pages only made visual browsing worse and made text scraping somewhat easier when you'd assume it's the opposite.

I am looking to purchase an ARM processor.
My instinct I to just cave and go with a raspberry-pi, but, I have heard there are plenty of, better, alternatives to the raspberry. Can anyone point me in a good direction of arm related processors and the like? Would be helpful as I, basically, don't really know where to start. Pi's are cool but I don't have to choose one of those. Anything really. As long as it ia secure and runs smoothly.

I don't want a slowly reacting touch menu for switching pages. Why not have a line of four buttons like this:
⏪ go back ten pages
◀ go back one page
(small gap between the buttons appears here)
▶ go forward one page
⏩ go forward ten pages


Guys I just want e-ink eBook Reader with a microSD slot (no wireless, cuz paranoid).
Is this doable? Could any of you recommend some brands for this in the last 5 years?

>wouldn't a clamshell design with two rigid screens also do the trick
My ideal would maybe be closest to something like the "globals" from the show E:FC, a rollable screen stored inside/around a rigid body, with telescoping/folding elements to prop it open at full expansion.

That would mean I could carry something with a screen the size of a burgerstani pocket paperback ("sextodecimo") as a 4" long rod, or the size of a glossy magazine ("A4") as an 8.3" long rod.

Really, setting that and dot pitch aside, I'm most annoyed of all at the lack of true bistability. That means I still have to deal with the hassle of turning it on/asleep/off, and wolfing down batteries. An eReader with a bistable display could be as convenient as an actual book.


Pocketbook has SD support and no DRM
It's a bit clunky and slow when resizing PDF, but it's less than 100 yuros

>What is the Anti-Capitalist Software License?

The Anti-Capitalist Software License (ACSL) is a software license towards a world beyond capitalism. This license exists to release software that empowers individuals, collectives, worker-owned cooperatives, and nonprofits, while denying usage to those that exploit labor for profit.

>How is the Anti-Capitalist Software License different from other licenses?

Existing licenses, including free and open source licenses, generally consider qualities like source code availability, commercialization, and attribution, none of which speak directly to the conditions under which the software is written. Instead, the ACSL considers the organization licensing the software, how they operate in the world, and how the people involved relate to one another.
The Anti-Capitalist Software License is not an open source software license. It does not allow unrestricted use by any group in any field of endeavor, an allowance that further entrenches established powers. It does not release your project to the creative commons or public domain, nor does it require derived source code to be made available. The availability of source code is less important than the organization of software labor.
Commerce and capitalism are not the same thing, and the commercialization of ACSL software is allowed, provided the organizations that do so are not organized along capitalist lines. The ACSL is explicitly intended to provide such organizations and individuals with a competitive advantage so that they may survive under capitalism, and outlive it.

>Why would I want to use this license?

The ACSL is right for you if you want your code to empower students, artists, hobbyists, collectives, cooperatives and nonprofits to survive under capitalism while not contributing free labor to corporations. The ACSL is right for you if you reject the status quo, believe better things are possible, and want to act on your beliefs. The ACSL is right for you if you carry a new world in your heart, and in your code.

>What if this license doesn’t fit my needs?

The ACSL was built in response to, and out of, other licenses. We fully encourage you to adapt, expand, or edit the language Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Variant of GPL that makes corporations seethe the most. It protects against service-as-a-software-substitute.


what's the difference between GPL3 and AGPL3?


If you give someone a binary compiled from source code protected by the GPL, you are legally obliged to give them the source code too. With the AGPL this is still true, but you also have to provide the source code if the user accesses your system through a network connection (instead of running it on their own hardware).

>>822>What are some Free Software projects worth contributing to?That depends entirely on your skill set and interest comrade. So what to you enjoy and what are you good at? Just so you know hacktoberfest is being sponsored by digitalocean right now so it might be a nice thing to get in on if you're planning to do this anyway: https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/


desktop environments like KDE. they need more polish.

Bring window edge snapping back to Openbox.


OpenTTD and OpenRCT2

These projects are keeping 2 really good oldschool games alive and running on modern machines while also improving them and adding new features.

They're actually political commissars


I wouldn't necessarily agree, their role is more along the lines of a strikebreaker, but with a human face. In the name of diversity and inclusion, anyone can be fired or assigned somewhere else, which is ideal for anti-organisational measures.


Did this ever happen or are you just making shit up again?


I was just saying that this is not a useless job, I have no idea if Mozilla specifically has used the position this way.


You did claim that this is what they do, and I asked that it ever actually happened. It seems to me that you are just making conspiracy theories up.
