Intel seems to have suffered a massive leak of about 17GB in size. It is named drop 1 so maybe more to come.

They will find a way to blame China for this.


So what do these leaks even revolve around? Government collusion?


The update to the tomshardware article lists this stuff.

Intel ME Bringup guides + (flash) tooling + samples for various platforms
Kabylake (Purley Platform) BIOS Reference Code and Sample Code + Initialization code (some of it as exported git repos with full history)
Intel CEFDK (Consumer Electronics Firmware Development Kit (Bootloader stuff)) SOURCES
Silicon / FSP source code packages for various platforms
Various Intel Development and Debugging Tools
Simics Simulation for Rocket Lake S and potentially other platforms
Various roadmaps and other documents
Binaries for Camera drivers Intel made for SpaceX
Schematics, Docs, Tools + Firmware for the unreleased Tiger Lake platform
(very horrible) Kabylake FDK training videos
Intel Trace Hub + decoder files for various Intel ME versions
Elkhart Lake Silicon Reference and Platform Sample Code

is the master key for IME leaked or what?


Anything important that relates to the common folk?

>All distro websites tell you to use checksums
Exactly. And any good distro has signed packages, so they fortunately assume their users could be attacked. It happened to Mint because of a wordpress vuln IIRC, so nothing to do with the distro itself. It's ridiculous to put so much blame on Mint project itself, wordpress is not some obscure amateur project of their own making.
Much bigger scandal to me is how Arch Linux refused to sign their packages for so long, attacking anybody who pointed this out. This is the case where a distro itself was actually unthrustworthy, and not just because of incompetence but because of their attitude towards security.


>>please dox yourself
How is:
>just use macOS for now if you have a mac
equivalent to
>please dox yourself
NTA, I think he may be referring to installing macOS on non-mac hardware. That's a huge pain in the ass, but also, if you're going that route, a linux OS is obviously much better.
>Dude, the website even tells you how to use them.
Dude, do you seriously use checksums every time? I try to use them, but many times I'm just lazy and trust the server. I sometimes even run plain bash code directly through ```curl website | bash```. It's the easiest way to install some software.

Again, linux only makes sense if you're starting out and have non-mac hardware.

I don't know why anyone would think we're talking about macOS on non-mac hardware, that is quite silly.
May I add to the list for fresh mac installs:
>yabai wm
>Kitty or Alacritty (fuck iTerm it's slow)


Nvm, I was thinking of "hackintosh".
I usually use all apps as large as possible and just command + ~, or command + tab, depending on what I need to access. I don't use a separate monitor though.


you can do everything on every OS. that doesn't make it objectively more efficient to stick with linux when learning linux systems

>he isn't Marxist - Leninist - Maoist - Stallmanist
You know that Stallman is basically essential to understand if you want to liberate the working class of today. He teaches us to take our digital means of production, and it can be taken a step further when applying his thought to Free and Open Source hardware designs.
Read Free Software, Free Society

Then to take it to the hardware level, check out the Open Source Ecology project:
but it's never being talked about
>The Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is a modular, DIY, low-cost, high-performance platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts. We’re developing open source industrial machines that can be made at a fraction of commercial costs, and sharing our designs online for free.

>terrible human being
>because he had an autistic argument of the meaning of certain words
tbh it would be better fitted to an anonymous imageboard but it doesn't make him a terrible human being, are you for real?


>He was however kicked out at this time not because of his controversial statements, which he has a ton of him, but because of his views in regards to tech and law.

obviously this
why do people have such a hard time wrapping their head around the concept that people use sex-stuff as pretext for persecuting people for their political views.

The two most common indicators of detecting an high-functioning autist is how they are very literal and persnickety and how they are unaware of socially inappropriate behaviors (ex. eating dead skin off your foot in front of a live audience, defending pedophilia and not understanding why age of consent exists).

Eating dead skin off foot: https://hooktube.com/watch?v=I25UeVXrEHQ
Having an autistic meltdown: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jskq3-lpQnE
Unable to react to jokes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFMMXRoSxnA
There are endless videos of his "awkward" behavior.

He should be known for his work on GCC, GNU, GPL licenses, free software advocacy, and nothing else. Any other subject you shouldn't take him seriously due to his neurological disorder.


How do you know his neurological disorder isn't exactly why he's so good at GCC, GNU, GPL licenses, and free software advocacy?


Is this a rhetorical question?

I've been thinking of Mastodon lately and the idea of federation. I've also been thinking of gochan and the efforts here on /tech/ to develop a new chan based on golang.

One thing that is learn is that the chaniverse, the 'alt chan' community is declining.

Instead of writing yet another chan, something new needs to happen: A common protocol or interface which defines server to server and frontend-to-server operates.

This protocol would be defined as JSON endpoints, possibly extended off the already existing 4chan api which is read only.

Normal federation is based off of following individual users (see activitypub protocol), whereas this would be based off following boards/topics.

The frontend-to server api definition would be there so that mobile clients etc can be made that are standardized, allows SPAs and mobile clients to use it while also providing an optional server-side rendered version for browsers, in case people don't want the javascript of an SPA.

Also it would allow everyone to write their own chan software while having it all interoperate with a wider universe of alt chans.

The same restrictions of mastodon (ex: blocking certain other instances) could also apply. The only think I think would be needed was individual accounts/registrations so that individual users could follow boards on other sites and it wouldn't have to replicate more than necessary

I haven't kept up with any of this, but just wondering why golang? What is inadequate about the other languages in which imageboards are implemented and why would an implementation in golang improve on them?

Sorry for the only very tangentially related question.


golang is a compiled language so presumably performance will be better.

most imageboards were historically written in php although obviously lynxchan was written in javascript

In reality it's not that big of a difference imo


Have you seen NNTPchan?

nntpchan is based on the nntp protocol which was a usenet protocol from the 90s. Modern architectural practices should be used instead through standard (restful JSON endpoints) like every other web app made after 2010 and mastodon

>inb4 "nntp is better than modern architecture"

>inb4 "oh, so you want it to be less secure and less anon then?".

This is the fucking problem with imageboard /tech/ and /g/ boards its full of fucking pseuds. Yes obviously JSON based microservices are bad which is why every multi billion dollar FAANG company and startup, what with their world level technology and advanced engineering degrees, are wrong, but you, some rando on /g/ who sells belts at the mall for a living knows that the REAL solution is NNTP protocol and scheme and whatever Richard Stallman thought was cool in the 90s.

The problem with imageboards and the internet in general is it falsely equalizes pseuds to non pseuds from the perspective of bystanders who don't know enough to tell who's full of shit


man what point is there in being this aggressive? this is such a bizarrely hotheaded reaction that I wonder if the creator of NNTPchan stole your girlfriend in high school or something. just chill dude, and quit making fun of my belt-selling business it has really picked up on aliexpress lately.

I'm trying to block websites using the Windows 10 hosts.txt so I can focus on my schoolwork but it doesn't work. I'm able to block bunkerchan and 4chan, but not twitter. when I type twitter.com into the address bar it just opens the page, even when I have DNS over HTTPS turned off. what the fuck is up? pic related, it's my current hosts.txt


Have you tried to flush your dns?


Win10 is fucked, this must be some built in safety "feature" to prevent DNS hijacking of normie websites. Fuck microsoft.


Remember to add both twitter.com and www.twitter.com, and flush your dns and browser caches

W10 is ass fucked anyway, you could do a pihole or something to block twitter there but maybe if you're serious about avoiding time syncs like twitter this shit is easier in Linux :^)

It is generally understood that programmers don't fancy with worker unions, instead opting for muh individualism. I can't really comprehend it, is the field just filled with Elon Musk worshiping people who think they'll be the next big thing?
Why is this? It happens in most countries, not just the USA. Do they not realize they'll get older, too? As a programmer myself, this is really frustrating. The tech workers union in my country is tiny and pointless.

The gaming industry is notorious for being awful to its workers, maybe that's the place to start pushing unions?


We had the same thing here in Portugal, but they were called Magalhães


Where I live there is high demand for programmers so the companies are competing with each other to be the best to work for, offering high pay, good work environments etc.

If you don't like the place you're working you've probably got ten recruiters in your LinkedIn ready to get you an interview with half the city.

Basically they feel secure in their jobs and happy that they'll be able to move to a new one if things go bad.

This might point to a lack of foresight, as you said they'll get older too, but as it sits they dont have grievances that they cant solve by quickly moving to a new company so it's hard to unionise when they are either generally very happy or prepared to go somewhere else.

And then Game dev is a passion job for a lot of people so they are willing to make sacrifices to work in it. Until they shatter from the overworking.

I live in Brazil and here the government had laws to encourage the use free software whenever possible in universities, schools and in the government itself.
The current government doesn't care about this. Helpfully, they are apathetic for the most part and aren't enforcing proprietary software and most people in computer-related courses in public universities are inclined to prefer free over proprietary, but there are people switching to Windows in universities and other places because they are more familiar with it.

Choose Apple. It's the people's choice.


Apples are for burgers.


Man it fucking sucks that most of my family/extended family use iDevice bullshit.
No group MMS even fucking works for me anymore on android if I'm interacting with Apple phones, I just don't receive fucking messages because I assume they're packed with some manner of metadata my phone doesn't understand.
As long as they gate you out in a way that appears unintentional, due to 'sloppy code' for interacting between the OSs, they just get away with it.
Phones are totally nonfree devices engineered to spy on you anyway, so I guess I am considering a fucking iShit next time, eugh.

3x shit 27" @ 1080p/75 IPS Freesync 85%-ish sRGB
1x 27" 4k/60 LCD 100% sRGB

Win10 (NSA edition, work)
Qubes (daily)
Manjaro/Cinnamon (because I hate myself edition)

don't game much, don't design for a living, but normally have a ton of windows open

85%RGB is fucking horrible
color gamut > all


1080p at 27'' looks like shit
I would go for 2 24'' 1080p freesync or maybe even 1 or 2 1440p high refresh screens instead of either of those options


Moved from Windows to Linux full time, noticed some interesting things with my second monitor, there's a bit of input lag for some reason that wasn't present in windows, and a lot of people online are saying Xorg doesn't like multiple monitors of different res/refresh rates

I have a 1080p/144hz monitor and a 900p/60hz secondary
Should I scrap the secondary entirely and get a larger 1440p/4k primary, or get a 1080p secondary, or what?



what Distro/DE do you use?never had any issues with dual monitor in Kubuntu, Manjaro (KDE) or Arch+i3; all of them with Xorg.
Maybe try Wayland? From what I understand it's almost usable these days


I'm on mint cinnamon, only distro I've ever installed on my main computer, using Pop on laptop

Not sure about wayland but I might give it a try
