The writer is such a faggot I want to rip his skull off


Why the fuck do I have to upgrade my phone at all?
The things a smartphone can do didn't change at all in 10 years yet every fucking year I need more battery and more CPU, what for? To display a bunch of text and pictures on a fucking screen?


Nothing new from CONSOOOOOMERS. You would be surprised at how many articles out there are as dull and lifeless as the one in the pic.

>Why fight it?

>4 IPs:9 posts


Jokes on you, I have no one to communicate with. Eat shit porky.


Because your phone is full of proprietary shit that makes you vulnerable. Here, upgrade to this:

We all should have known this was coming


This should be an indication that all git repos need to be mirrored *somewhere*

At the moment there are many mirrors on gitlab.com, including https://gitlab.com/pintert3/youtube-dl.git

What's stopping youtube from using widevine?


nice ass


Why the fuck can't I download anything from YouTube even with the newest youtube-dl version? There aren't any sites that work right now either

Shame it's ruined by those god-awful faces


Oh, I just remembered that I can in fact download the video I want, only on one site, and only in 360p.


Have you tried pwnyoutube.com?

&lt /ipfs/ homepage?
&lt /ipfs/ image board?
I realy like this
From reading it i pick up that hes a /g/ person.
But I realy like the idea.
the implementation is a a bit shit.
You need to be running a local ipfs node on 8080 (obviosluy)

anyone got something like this going on?
anyone follow ipfs stuff?


Anon, I have no idea what IPFS is.

/g/ had a good idea for once:
We need a third option to the dichotomy between the fascist commie NIH philosophy of the FSF and the boot-licking brown-nosing philosophy of the OSI.
>OSI: in an ideal world, all software should be libre, but good software is more important than libre software, so when proprietary software is better than libre software, it should be able to cannibalize the libre software to make itself even better
>FSF: libre software is more important than good software, and therefore libre software is ALWAYS better than proprietary alternatives, no matter how many features are missing, and anyone who uses proprietary software should be harassed until they change their mind, and libre software should never promote proprietary software, not even for interoperability

What's the commonality that necessitates this dichotomy?
It's the fact that both the OSI and the FSF respect laws around proprietary software.
>OSI: those laws are kind of unethical, but it's okay if you want to license under them and steal our shit, your work is better after all
>FSF: those laws are unethical, so if you're going to license under them, then the only way to simultaneously avoid breaking them and retain user freedoms is to not use your software or even acknowledge its existence

I present the MAOSS. An idea for a gang of criminal e-thugs who use violence to force proprietary licensors to forfeit their IPs against their will so that users don't have to choose between software that works and software that respects their freedoms.
>oh, you're going to license your work under a proprietary license? *rips terms of service in half*
>*decompiles your work, neuters it of anti-features, and redistributes the libretized version as a component of other freedom-respecting libre work without your permission*
>oh what's that, you're gonna sue us? lol *brings flamethrower to court*
>*casually murders major proprietary software vendors in cold blood and burgles their laptops*

oh, sorry. didn't mean to post such a serious post on a glowie site.
But for real though, send me that shit.


would have really liked the source code to that


Is this really what Static Analysis is? I've taken a class on static analysis and its all about analyzing OO code for object oriented quality metrics like McCall's model, Chidamber and Kemerer metrics, etc. Maybe it has a different meaning in software/quality engineering from security


Doing posting is peak praxis.


Free software terrorism thank god I wasn't the only one thinking about bricking some corporate servers and giving proprietary vendors free trips to the pit.

This must be incorporated to the agenda of the communist party. The freedom of the working class shall be complete.

porn and 4chan are banned in the shitty country I'm living in for the next six months. What weird things are banned in your country?
5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Cuban cigars are banned in burgerland


you can usually get what you want first search pretty reliably with decent google-fu, anon. in my experience.


Also depending on country there are still lots that work. Have you tried https://magnetdl.eu/ ?


Really? Friend brought some over to the uk once, you ain't missing much


piracy sites and live streams of sporting events, can be bypassed with a simple dns switcharoo

Sup guys, looking to move my normie friend gaming group from the garbage that is discord to a mumble+matrix/riot (with some fileshare on top mb) hosted on a VPS. Does anyone have tips, insights, and good cheap VPS provider recommendations to give ?
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


any specific reason ? did you use it yourself ?
free bandwith (in reasonable limit) and 5€/month seem ok but standard


so depend on your budget, location (EU/NA/MENA…)
i will recommend you online(scaleway) the price vary from 8 - 12 euro a month for a VPS but they have a quick and good support no limit in bandwidth + root access . Note : they are installation fees depend in the options you take

Or you can build your own and self host you can try getting a cheap Optiplex or those Lenovo Think center mini they are low power or even a raspberry pi
4 with active cooling, i have a raspberry pi that i use as a NAS+adblocker and other small automation service in my rack with my other network.
if your IPS give a static IP you can use a freedomain service.


europe and 5-10 bucks a month top as budget
I should be tech literate enough to install my shit myself if I have root access
I'd self host if my home connection wasnt so shit, but it would prolly be an awful experience for the others, although I do have a raspberry I use as a retro gaming platform, so I could mb give it a shot. Mumble might work, but I'm afraid it will fuck with my connection if we use it as a fileshare. And my ISP give dynamic IP, pretty sure I'd have to pay extra to get static.


for VOIP you don't need a high bandwidth just a stable one that will be enough for 20+ clients with a stable bitrate.
and yes ISP are shit

well as i said you can try scaleway this should be enough for mumble + file sharing
careful they got installation fees


also OVH is also a option

You don't remember how Microsoft fell in the 90s after being deemed "too big to fail"? They never got to that point again.


1) Microsoft is still bloated and is still on their campaign of eating up others.
2) Breaking up these bloated monstrosities from time to time is done to extend the lifespan of the system. "Too big to fail" means catastrophe when they do fail, it threatens to bring down the whole system with it. It's not a coincidence that idealistic neoliberals like Elizabeth Warren and Margrethe Vestager (Competition Commissioner of EU) are the faces of regulatory measures.
3) The dream of small entrepreuners is a libertarian fantasy. Not even their heroes believe in it. If you talk to start-ups they almost always say their ultimate goal is being bought by FAANG.


>Microsoft is still bloated

>and is still on their campaign of eating up others.

With not much success, if any.

I'm not sure what point #3 has to do with anything I've said.


They have the biggest OS share and have long been creeping into other markets under other brands.
>With not much success, if any.
Github comes to mind. There are other not so small fish.

But all that is not really important, because even if Microsoft "fell" and is now irrelevant, it was replaced by FAANG. The principle has stayed the same. If anything, big tech has only become bigger.

>I'm not sure what point #3 has to do with anything I've said.

The 3rd point is concerning the fact we will not go back to small tech and big tech is here to stay.

And what is your response to the 2nd point?


>They have the biggest OS share
That's Android (Google).

>Github comes to mind.

I'll give you that. It's a good thing alternatives came up after the sell.

>And what is your response to the 2nd point?

I don't disagree with it, that's why I didn't mention it.


This based sheep-fucker hacker built his own Cruise Missile.

Honourary /ourguy/?

What other /tech/guys are you like, anons?

Hows it not easier in 2020.


Remember, the Oklahoma bombings was possible and now it's nearly impossible to do the same état today.


… anon terrorist attacks happen multiple times a year in most of our countries. the ATF obviously aint shit.

OKlahoma bombings would absolutely be achieved today. Brevik did something similar, there is no reason couldnt do same again in US either theortically. Why do you think otherwise/


You can't simply buy fertilizer and chemicals as a farmer normally anymore. Stealing mining blasting caps is pretty easy still though so I give you that.
You need to be deeply interconnected with the criminal underworld and import explosives abroad.
The ATF had in fact made it harder to do the same as the Oklahoma bombings.


that's just a V1
