I love my electronic reader, I must have read hundreds of books on it, all free thanks to the pirate comrades and websites like library genesis, mobilism or archive.org.

Picrel is a Kobo Aura with Plato as OS. I hear KOreader is also good.

So fellow anons, do you live fully in the current year? Do you own an e-reader? Do you love it? Are you still hesitating to get one?read_a_fucking_bookRead a Fucking Book

I've had an e-reader in my hands since I was 9 (t. zoomer), barely have ever had physical books outside of school and still don't

I was considering buying the Manifesto at 16 when I was getting initiated but thank god I didn't, that shit puts you on a watch list


>that shit puts you on a watch list
Uh oh…


I have an ereader but I like physical books more tbh. I like to be able to flip back and forth, I can highlight stuff physically, make scribbles, and when I'm done I have a physical token I can display. But to save money of course e-readers are better. Good PDF support is the only remaining problem.


ya think im on a list if i searched a couple marxist authors on glowie platforms but didnt end up buying anything from them?

>Good PDF support is the only remaining problem
koreader is pretty decent

Deleting system32 is kids stuff. You really want Windows to shit itself, use another OS to make files with names legal in NTFS but not under Windows especially in system folders.




>use another OS to make files with names legal in NTFS but not under Windows especially in system folders.
so the only way you can delete files windows wont let you to, is to use another OS?
one thing i really fucking hate about windows is that it refuses shit i fucking tell it to do
>no, you cant delete cortana files even though you are the admin, permision denied, fuck you
yes because i want my computer to disobey my commands when i fucking tell it do to something
god bless linux or i would have lost my sanity with this piece of shit OS

one way i have thought about bypassing this is to write a kernel level driver, is my plan good?


The goal was to make it die quickly, not extend its suffering.


With files names legal under NTFS yet illegal under Windows you run into the problem that Windows doesn't know how to process some file names or processes them wrong. Like con where Windows literally thinks con is the console. To fully fix this you have to rip out Windows legacy code that prevents Windows from being fully NTFS compatible (yes I know MS wrote NTFS for Windows NT but Microsoft is stupid and not fully compatibility with their own file system and patched it by simply having the OS not use certain characters and names for files).

This Thread Has Been Re-appropriated for leftypol.org Usage.

General thread meant for the discussion of the mobile app for browsing leftypol.org, known as clover.

Releases can be found here:

Hi comrades, someone who knows Kotlin or Java can contribute to add support also on Kuroba-ex Github?


Is this updated for the last version of kuroba?


Nothing burger comrade

On a side note, I honestly hate using the clover fork because sometimes it crashes when opening other threads and it's really annoying. I wish I could just use Kuroba-Ex instead of using more space (On my phone) than needed.


All media seems to be broken now with vids unable to play and deep zooming on images failing on my end. You can still download some images but video is a complete bust. Haven't tried opening a pdf yet. Maybe it's something to do with there now being two periods before file extensions now?


Yeah we need a full update.

We're on a new board, so why not a new desktop thread? Let's keep this board active. Hopefully a fresh thread will draw some activity.

Every few months, people come up with an idea to create a new imageboard, since mostly everyone is dissatisfied with the state of vichan/lainchan, or thinks they can do it better. Having better software would greatly enhance the experience for both regular users and mods, and have more crossover appeal to “normies”. The problem is that no one can agree on the technical or more importantly non technical decisions on how one would go about making an actual, usable replacement for lainchan.

In fact, people don't even agree on whether the imageboard replacement should be an imageboard at all. This thread is a merged, consolidated, megathread of all the various attempts at answering this question that people have made.

Previously, there was a thread on outreach to lainchan, including a strawpoll:

The poll determined it should be built in Java, but a significant minority wanted to use a functional programming language, esp. Haskell, or Clojure/Lisp.

The only way a new imageboard will be built is if multiple people, technical jannies and lurker-programmers, from here and lainchan and even elsewhere, actually collaborate on a single project and concentrate their efforts on this.

There are important technical and non technical questions to be answered.

Namely, do we even want an imageboard?

Vichan is a read only API, there are no endpoints marked as anything other than GET, for it to be a real API you would need the ability to POST new posts from any client


Anon I like your schema (the first one) seems kindof incomplete tho

I'm not a real oldfag and even I know that the Yotsuba most modern boards are based on is the redesign.



And like I said, all the "redesign" involves in adding a shitty shadow to post boxes and setting a font instead of letting the browser fall back on the default, lol.

Be sure to include the relevant SHA256 checksum for verification. Latest stable AMD64 versions preferred but no strict requirements obviously.

What is the purpose of doing this? The best answer depends on that.



wtf is this thread? someone reposting official distro torrent links, or posting links to torrents they've created or something?

either way, only a retard would trust these links


thanks for the utilitarian insight


>wtf is this thread?
It might be nice for the people that don't browse distrowatch. I posted one of the obscurer distros.

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!

But tor explicitly allows for SOCKS5 proxying. In many cases its better than vs not doing it, also TB is extremely limited in functionality for "heavier" web applications, like even Element/matrix with a lot of people / rooms chatting (SOCKS5 proxied Element Desktop is then preferable).
Another similar area is also RSS. Most browsers, including Firefox (and TB) removed support and you're thus forced to use a standalone application. Here again its better to torify the traffic via SOCKS5 proxy than vs not doing it.
Wouldn't you agree?


Firefox keeps on winning (or rather, Chromium keeps on losing).

Fucking chromebooks


Why do keyboard and laptop manufacturers always assume I am using Windows? I find it very offensive as I am not a Windows user myself. Stop printing the Windows logo on what was originally the command key or at least just leave that space empty.

Unicomp makes Tux keys.


You can get keyboards and laptops that have various linux logos or generic super-key decorations preinstalled, and you can get replacement key-caps for some keyboards, even some of the inbuilt ones for laptops have that option.
You could just scrape it off with a very sharp knife or use a chemical solvent.

Lol No, windows is using you.
