Signal decided to include a payment mechanism in their app based on some obscure cryptocoin which is located in the British virgin islands, a known tax heaven.

Them hiding their server commits for over a year sure makes sense now

It's a matter of which glowies are preferred, the choice of chat apps and ilk, so best stick to the old technology that works or what others in this thread already said.

Just use XMPP for chatting with people directly and Matrix for group chats. XMPP is proven and reliable and completely open.

Any programmers here? I thought about simulating a population organizing resources for a while. Nothing serious, just doing it for fun. Anyone tried that before in their free time? Do you have any conceptual starting points? I will start:

Type: Person
Attributes: sex, age_range
That is to predict how much resources they themselves need and how much work they can produce. All based on averages.

Type: Resource
Attributes: quantity, state
Subtypes: metal, mineral, wood, food
The attribute "state" describes for example if the resource has been refined based on some procedure. The mentioned subtypes have further subtypes of course.

Type: Product
Attribute: kcal, components
Subtypes: electronics, furniture, dish
kcal is supposed to represent the average amount of work exerted with the most efficient available tools available to produce the product.

Brainlet here, but for the "Too simple" etc etc didn't Cockshott make an open source program in Julia for planning?
Couldn't you anons use this as a base?

 No.10610

>>7710
At such simplistic level you could just structure the whole thing on iterations, so you have a simple mathematical function that takes the current state as input and transforms it according to some chosen model to produce a new state which is then again fed as input. Then just iterate to see how it behaves through hundreds of generations.

LM was the first OS I ever used for Linux and if you are openly making declarations of your laziness then I can't fault you. Hell, I use Gentoo on my desktop but i installed Ubuntu on my laptop just out of sheer laziness. Mint is a great Os though and I can't knock you for using it for the sake of laziness.

 No.9261

Fedora for desktop and Centos for servers.

 No.9264

Debian, because it just werks

 No.9351

Debian. Works for almost every use case from making old computers still useful to my daily programming work, container shit, server side stuff, etc. and has a massive community that ensures that you have reasonably up-to-date versions of every software within the linux/unix ecosystem.

Also it helps that at least some who use and develop for it still have an ideological inclination towards the FSF and real free software instead of being fronts for corporate shit (Fedora, Ubuntu, etc) or total sellouts like the user-focused ones whose priorities lie more towards being Apple clones in functionality instead of free software.

also what the fuck is your alternative for small sites who cant afford homebrew protection of the same grade?

 No.7599

The glow is everywhere already.

Plus this sort of application inherently is large scale, so the ordinary user cannot easily replicate its capabilities.

But even if individualized privacy tech. can't stop it, proper organization can render it superfluous.

Cisco bought them out in 2016, which is definitely a dealbreaker for me. But I feel like I stopped using it earlier than that for other reasons related to censorship that I can no longer remember.

so using a DNS will prevent your ISP from viewing what websites you've visited?

 No.7389

Using a DNS server that does not harvest one's requests will be quite probably more private than default ISP DNS servers that might surreptitiously collect information on the domain names being resolved.
Use a hosts file to get to sites if absolutely paranoid.
On a separate topic, usage of a DNS SEC capable resolver is probably also a good thing.

I’m installing linux for the first time, what distro should I use? I’m fine with it taking hours to set up, as long as it’s free. I ain’t paying for that shit. I was leaning towards gentoo but what do you guys think?

If you actually want to learn Linux, go for Gentoo or at least arch, and do as much through terminal as possible. I recommend a tiling window manager. They're honestly the absolute shit once you get used to them.

Hi, Is any1 interested in contributing to a hacker zine coming from the left? All is welcome, art, articles, poetry, 0dayz, ownz, tutorials, propaganda, etc. Feel free to reply or discuss ITT or email.

Similar to the lainzine?

I would say similar to Hackback! and similar to HackThisZine with some passing similarities to the anracho zines like 325 in some style and format ways. I'd like it to be as open as can be politically.

A few things:
Firstly, an article wrote for this project is about thinking outside the box and a positive examination of 'Security through Obscurity'. This piece comes with a block of code that will per configuration will insta-kill all networking, wipe RAM and swap before either delete or encrypt everything on your hard drive as soon as your earplugs are unplugged, the use case would be for example to counter how DPR was arrested and it's not as obvious as having a usb tie to your wrist …anyways! what I wanted to ask is there anyone who would be so kind as to test this, give me specs of your machine and speeds of the softwares to do it's jobs? And is there any improvements or critique of the concept that you have?

Secondly, I've been writing a news section a la picrel but with hacking and radical tech related news (such as unionization in the tech sector which incidently i'd love an article on if anyone has one or wants to make one), i,f yo have a interesting tech happening that has a lefty bent please post, thanks.

Also, I did not know where to put this but I have a feature request: A Gitlab instance. It would be a great thing for the community, I can see no downsides at all.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GitLab

>>7466
FYI GitLab is now funded by In-Q-Tel, the private research funding arm of the CIA. Would be a good idea to choose a different git for the future.

 No.7477

>>7469
Good call. I'm indifferent to the software used tbh, I just think having our own could be a really useful resource and lead to some interesting things. hopefully. :)
