Reminder that Marx encouraged consumerism and was only against capitalism putting a brake on letting people fulfill their desires.


Marx died before consumerism existed.

Nevermind then.

Also I'd use cpubenchmark.net next time, the owner of the website you posted has a bias against AMD he doesn't even bother hiding so I'm not sure how reliable their results are.

Why even bother with chips under your skin when your eye, palm or face are more than enough?

Biometrics are not practical, if somebody steals a keycard, you replace the keycard, if somebody steals your palm-print, you can't chop off your hand and grow a new one with a different palm print. Does capitalism have a anti-tool bias ? Fast-food does away with cutlery, smartphones do away with input devices like pens or keyboards, bio-metrics do away with keys. Is it really so bad if you need a helper tool for using an object ? I get doing away with hazardous cans that need a can-opener, but keys ?


Applying for a job or even working requires smartphones frequently, so it is basically required.

Why do people use this cancer over actual Wine?


cause shpeed


…Because it works better? Valve took Wine and patched it.

I don't know what answer you expected.


use lutris.
they have some valve applied patch but they also present in wine.
base proton take a shitload time to update, custom proton like egg roll add wine patchs and fix to proton.
there also some game that don't run in proton but does in wine.

Should I stick with green or amber?


allebei lelijk oetz


green imo


amber looks cool and the warm color is better for the eye, blue light is bad for your eyes.


Amber is the obviously superior choice. It's much easier on the eyes. It's almost like it's making love to me.


Ok, so, if this answers your question.
Fallout New Vegas -> default amber theme.
Fallout 3 -> default Green Theme.
Fallout New Vegas >>> Fallout 3.
Which means.
Amber theme >>> Green Theme

Why haven't you taken the fp pill?


I already do it for scientific simulation programming, but I really don't see the point in using it for anything else.


I like OCaml and Scheme


I use clojure. Most of /tech/ knows at least one functional language anon.


Why yes, I have taken the Susspill.


I like Haskell but I don't find it very much use for the things I do.

Anybody using this to post here? I'm fucking scared because until recently this project was looking over. No updates or anything then randomly out of nowhere got update notification and against my best judgement updated the app. It's got a new look and options now.

But then got several more updates over the next few weeks. Almost one everyday.

I don't know where to check or see why there are these updates coming from out of the blue. Bros please tell me theres not some hidden malware happening behind the scenes of this new UI changes

I posted this in another thread but I think it deserves its own thread.I've been seeing a lot of people saying that installing tor is super hard and difficult, and, even if you use windows it's not that hard. All you have to do is install the tor browser and go into the browser bundle files and run the executable for tor, or, just use the browser bundle.Like it's not hard at all.But, being the pros (and dirty commies that we are) we don't use fucking bourgeois Microsoft.So, I've set up a super simple and comprehensive guide to installing and using tor like a pro on Linux.This is why we use Linux.STEP ONE:Downloading tor:ctrl+alt+t: Open terminal:Sudo apt install torsudo service tor startSTEP TWO:Downloading and setting up privoxy.sudo apt install privoxyEdit the config file:vim /etc/privoxy/config(If you don't have vim sudo apt install vim)add in text at the bottom:(vim insert mode: press I)forward-socks5 .onion 9050(press escape)Type :wq (write quite)Done, ammo loaded cannons ready to fire.STEP THREE:Set up firefox to use tor:about:preferences: Network settings, Use custom proxy(Privoxy runs on port 8118) 8118Check off "Use this proxy for all protocols"Done.Takes literally 5 seconds and you don't have to inconvenience yourself by downloading a whole brand new fucking browser ONLY for the simple task of bouncing around encrypted packets through a bunch of proxies. You also don't have to live with the hellscape that is Microsoft and the billions of exploits and bugs in and written for it. (Not to mention back doors.)And before anyone starts bitching; Setting up firefox for privacy isn't that difficult.Basically turn off all telemetry and geo location, referer headers (but you will need http refer headers for 8chan) and some other shit, Guide here:https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/blog/2018/09/firefox-hardening-guide/But honestly none of that even matters unless you are a windows user or a pedophile and let's hope you aren't either one of those.Have a nice day.

make an onion site on a vps that doesnt take any info and is operated out of 14 eyes. Keep a backup site in case u do get shut down by the company i guess. keep your database encrypted until called upon obviously if anything sensitive. Only use tor to connect to the server when configuring it. Should keep u safe, these r the basics, look into it. grugq has some case studies in some like deceased 2013 blog about cyber criminals n shit, one case study about how this pedo ring basically got away by just using yknow, standard opsec but just sticking to it well and not giving out personal info, using proxies for everything, not using VPNs for security, and shit. So nah anti-gov shit stays up unless infiltrated, cp stays up -> gets killed -> comes back, and drugs always stay up lol but who do u think really profits off that, govs r the og cartels. Anyways yeah, whatever u do just have good basic opsec and u should be fine, tor isnt horribly broken, just use it how you are told to use it by people who know their shit. i.e. dont do shit on tor u do on clearnet, dont change ur browser, close sessions frequently, dont have it full screen, ideally use whonix or sandboxing or smth, whatever. If you're super noided there's always yknow, doing it out of public wifi also, so even if its deanonymized its not tied to u
good luck anon


The recent update for the browser bundle standardizes the screen size for the full screen browser window, so that leak is probably not that big of a problem now.

Also if using public WiFi to be anonymous, consider cloning the MAC address to something else than the one that could be traced if hotspot operators log that and can correlate the traveling of the device.




>The recent update for the browser bundle standardizes the screen size for the full screen browser window, so that leak is probably not that big of a problem now.
No, the recent update (10.0) completely fucks up resolution fingerprint resistance, because the rounding is buggy. 1) it doesn't round to multiples of 100 but is slightly off. 2) the window size is different between initial window and subsequent new windows.
Secondly, the canvas fingerprint resistence doesn't work anymore.
Thirdly, what you're referring to (a technique called "letterboxing") has already been part of the 9.5 version.

See for yourself:


god you people are retarded. You can't figure out how to install a fucking program through the package manager? Kill yourselves.

Just want to earn my paycheck to feed myself from something that will work for at least 4+ years and be durable in a chaotic home environment.

I heard stuff about how the new ryzen laptops are crazy good worth of money for the consumer. Don't know much about cpus wars.

Only want to be able to do my work fast on it without lagging under heavy load.

Will be using many many browser tabs, excel sheets, word documents, and pdf softwares. No games or anything. Just work.

What durable laptops would you suggest for these purposes in the $300-500 dollar range. I just want to fully utilize my purchasing power while buying this laptop because i'm kinda loaning the money from somebody else ;-;

Good luck, keep us posted on what happens


>Will this Acer survive for 4+ years?
>Graphics Chipset BrandAMD
Avoid laptops with AMD or NVidia discrete gpus, those laptop gpus have high failure rates, often double digit percentages, unlike Intel igpus which have &lt0.1% failure rate. MAYBE the Radeon Vega igpus from AMD will be fine, but they haven't been out long enough to determine their durability. Find out what the specific GPU model is.
>Resolution HD (1366 X 768) Pixels
Too small resolution for my taste, wouldn't settle for less than 900 pixel height. See if you can find 1400x900, 1600x900, 1920x1080, etc. If the screen is glossy (which it usually is nowadays) instead of matte, you might want to also buy an laptop screen anti-glare filter.
>Hard Disk DescriptionMechanical Hard Drive
Are you unable to find one with an SSD?
>Processor BrandAMD
>Processor TypeCore i3 3220
Specs look like they're completely riddled with mistakes, find out what the actual processor is. This looks like a scam. Also I would try to make sure it's a fanless laptop.

>Will be using many many browser tabs, excel sheets, word documents, and pdf softwares. No games or anything. Just work.

You can't make money off excel/word, this isn't 1993. Expert knowledge in html, css, php, laravel, mysql, js, bootstrap, node.js, react, jquery, angularjs, vuejs, json and mongodb are the minimum requirements today (you can probably get by with just the first 7), which would take months to learn. Throw in some knowledge of http, apache, nginx, dom, xml, csv, and maybe python, django, beautifulsoup for good measure.

A cheap used Thinkpad. That's all anyone needs.


For the usual office work or even programming many laptops could work.
Get decent processors and enough RAM, and that should be fine, and there's isn't a requirement for the most LEET gaming GPUs.

If the operating system matters, then one with that already preinstalled could be considered. Most should have that anyways.
But libre software is good to have installed.

Can you believe AMD beat Intel even on laptops?

>Will be using many many browser tabs, excel sheets, word documents, and pdf softwares. No games or anything. Just work.

Though honestly you should just get an old thinkpad if you're going to do only this much. They're durable, alright.

For symbol names and documentation, avoid introducing new usage of 'master / slave' (or 'slave' independent of 'master') and 'blacklist / whitelist'. Recommended replacements for 'master / slave' are:
'{primary,main} / {secondary,replica,subordinate}'
'{initiator,requester} / {target,responder}'
'{controller,host} / {device,worker,proxy}'
'leader / follower'
'director / performer'

are from a security perspective better

sure thing Red Hat Inc. employee


Conceivably the glows could sneak in hidden backdoors that cannot be discerned without considerable difficulty.
That won't be stopped by using hipster operating systems though. Linux is far more audited than those have been.


Yep, this is the same issue with people using supposedly more private forks of Firefox. They end up using a much less secure web browser that also makes them much more fingerprintable.


Linux, the kernel is audited to hell and back. But there are many more components to operating systems than just that, and each of them adds additional surface area to an attack. The big example to call out for this is of course SystemD, which took over many functions other more decentralized manageable components did. Since it came from Fedora, a forprofit entity, it also is a reasonable source to distrust the main distros which all use it.
Being able to work with several obscurer OSses would add a lot of security to whatever you're doing, since having a more varied OS ecosystem will give more hurdles to any would-be attacker. This makes things like OpenBSD, Qubes-Whonix or even Gentoo very useful in allowing at least some to keep their safety guaranteed.
Similarly with Firefox, it added many more components to itself in recent years that all form additional potential entry points into the system. If the fork in question is a more stripped down version of it (which is often the case) and still takes the main security updates that are added as they are found (which is always the case), they end up being safer against attack. Your point regarding fingerprinting still stands though, but it there are many vague sidechannels that can compromise your browserprints with relative ease.
