Boomer family left me hundreds of blank floppies. (You know how Boomers love to collect things they don't use, which invariably become obsolete and become e-waste; they left thousands of blank CDs, DVDs, a zip-drive and about 6 old laptops and a few ancient desktops too. Because they refused to give anything away when they upgraded their stuff.)

Any ideas for what I can do with the floppies?


if there something importing on it you can try to back them up or try to smelt them, or glue them together to form cube or pencil holder or what ever post pics of what you made


If they still work and you don't want them sell em on eBay or gumtree or whatever

Retro enthusiasts still use that shit


You could use them to backup anything important you want to last.


Those are not good for backup, and the typical storage amount isn't much for today's applications anyways.
>CDs, DVDs
These could be decent media for backup, but it depends. Sometimes the data layer can be degraded, if it isn't stored properly or utilizing materials that last long.


If there are any rare, important programs on it, and they aren't already on the Archive, upload them.

Anyone know of a reliable way to get a fake phone number for when social media accounts force it upon you?
I keep trying those 'receive SMS' websites but all the numbers are already used by the time I get to them.

Also, you don't need to remind me how they all spy on you, I know, I just need this to conduct business directly with clients, nothing more.

you don't have to have a phone number, just email them twice that your phone number doesn't work and they'll unlock your account


Have you been locked? Are you a furry artist or something?


Twitter will just randomly lock your account at times.


OP if you try this out report back about it working or not please

same question, just want to know if someone managed to fix the broken bunkerchan rss feeds


The connections themselves are only as secure as your connection setup. It's your job to use a vpn or set up tor for all your traffic, if you feel the need to do something like that for youtube feeds and streams. Since this only handles feeds, and watching or downloading the streams themselves is done with another program, presumably you already have your preferred security measures set up for that other program, so route this one through the same setup. For adding extra fluff to the request headers to hide in the crowd you can use GetFeed.get_headers. The default request looks like this:

GET /feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=… HTTP/1.1
Host: www.youtube.com
User-Agent: …
Accept-Encoding: gzip
Connection: close

and the equivalent for invidio instances.


Bongino is in the process of moving to Rumble (.com) because YT's SJW tendancies are disheartening, and eventually will necessitate the move.

But Rumble's /c/&ltuser> page is, no surprise, nothing like YT's channel feed.
And I can't code my way out of a box. Any chance of QuiteRSS updating to interpret Rumble's feeds?


Hmm. There's this
http createfeed.fivefilters.org/index.php?url=https%3A%2F%2Frumble.com%2Fc%2FBongino&in_id_or_class=video-item–a&max=5&order=document

But it can't, for example, tell what the video is called, nor will it play/show pictures internal to Qrss but choosing the &ltno title> to be opened externally brings up the latest video.
Doesn't at this time show any of the other videos in the channel though; not with those settings.

Let's have a general for discussion about the most based OS there ever was.
What builds are you using? Use flags? Are you on a Stacking or tiling windows manager?
Lay it all down. Talk about optimization and help out more, less experienced, gentoo users.

It wasn't intended to be a rhetorical question. Why might someone do Gentoo over Linux From Scratch?


Linux from scratch is the dumbest most boring thing one could do. It's litterally a gentoo installation where instead of using portage you go to the page of all the various components and projects and manually download them and compile them.
Maybe it made sense before gentoo was a thing but I really don't see the point now, you learn nothing over a stage 3 installation


Gentoo actually has some uses, it can be an excellent base for a specialized distro:

LFS on the other hand is just a hobby project whose only goal is building the system to learn about linux, and not actually using it. It's like a school project.


LFS is actually unmaintainable as a computer that you would actually use because just keeping the packages up to date would take all of your free time to download, compile and debug. LFS is something you do out of curiosity in a VM, and then wipe the VM image afterwards. It doesn't exist to create a thing that serves a useful purpose.

Muh Pratchett anon!
Big reason i love his works is the way he slips in these things in such an easily digestible and humerous way. He's an often under-looked leftist influence for children.


that's just the "poor people buy twice" saying.

Don't get me wrong, I think he's great and I've read nearly all of the discworld novels, but I don't think he was a leftist.


He was maybe a Dem Succ at best, more like Succ Dem which is pretty standard for socially progressive people of his generation in the UK


please recommend me a over the ear headphone that will be durable strong. i'm not an audipphile. i just want to be not able to hear the outside world while wearing it.

converting my country's currency to dollars
my money to spend on a headphone is 10-15 dollars


Buy a nice pair of shure or etymotic headphones with detachable cables and then just replace the cables.

I wanted to know if this tablet was good, and i didnt know where to ask. https://consumer.huawei.com/en/tablets/matepad-pro-5g/
I just want something to read theory on comfortably while also having a good screen to watch movies and stuff on.


Specs look quite good and once you get past the dirt cheap tier Chinese engineering is very solid and tends to get you a lot of bang for your buck


I watched one video and there was a lot of shit being flung at it, i wasnt sure if it was just apple-tards being apple-tards or what.

Thanks for answering my guy

Can you self study the equivalent of a degree in electrical engineering from khan academy, coursera, edx, youtube, free pdfs from libgen?

Any EE's here want to comment on this? This is just for knowledge not to be accredited or certified or whatever

you study EE to design entirely new components or to make very complicated systems from existing components, so beyond what you'd want to do at home or whatever

Hi Anons. If you could have root on any porkies machine who would it be?

I'm scared of going to prison. Even though I know the chances are slim that I would get caught it was still the fear of it holding me back.


A) Know what they can use to detect that you're in their systems
B) Know what they can use to link it back to you
From these two points you narrow down the chance of being caught.
You could hack an old machine, for example, since reconnaissance is the most important part of hacking, and you got access to it all. In case you get caught they wouldn't think it was an insider.

But be safe, if you don't master what you are doing, you'll be caught.


How do we persuade and/or help you, anon?


If you prepare the rootkit beforehand and put it in some kind of simple tool (like an addon for a text editor or something dumb) and then release it anonymously in public, you get plausible deniability for it.
So when they ask you "hey, our data got hacked and you unlocked the door when it happened" you can say you just compiled this cool github thing that would've helped your workflow.
You might not even get fired for it then, since this shit happens all the time anyways.


he said that he used to work for the company, he's not going to be able to waltz back in there and get his hands on a company computer.

half the time, the IT guy actually doesn't know his shit, even in companies with supposedly high security/compliance requirements. speaking from experience.
