how much it would cost to build something to shoot that down, or maybe EMP the drones

this isn't Final Fantasy the military doesn't use airships

You will ride the blimp and you will be happy.


Yes and no, airships for recon still have uses if there is no risk of them attacked and DARPA is devloping drone airships that job would be just sit on a boarder and listen in to radio signals with a nation they are technically not at war with.


Hover your drone in front of it. Then when it crashes into it, you sue Amazon for $100000000000000000000000000000.


Is making money off suing companies really as comically easy as they show in TV?

We have you surrounded, come on out and enjoy the new iPhone!


I use my dick. I find hat helps.

Not being able to open the phone and replace the parts is a truly disgusting thing.

>The emerging dream of an internet where every interaction is a financial transaction

I FUCKING HATE TECHBROS Why is this shit presented as a good thing?


Because they think they'll be high enough on the pyramid to not get fucked. Same thing with libs who want the great reset (same shit but in the real world).


bruh just learn to code


Doesn't matter, if such thing comes about people will just stop using the internet

Tech people are really good at coming up with the most retarded solutions.


What are some good, lightweight and regularly updated music players I can download?

Sucks there's nothing better looking than music bee still


All you need is mpd+ncmpcpp.


>better looking
How much do you find yourself staring at your music player lol


I just use mpv.


I still use audacious because it has a very clean and simple old school interface that can be customized and cleaned up further. Everything else I find too cluttered or/and lacking.
I only play local files, but maybe it supports more advanced shit, I don't know.

If I wanted to start my own website dedicated to piracy that is open to the public such as Pirate Bay, libgen, or sci-hub how would I go about it? What providers will protect me from government intervention?
Pic unrelated


stop calling it piracy, stop the verbal diarrhea, this are examples of piracy:

If you don't know how this is done, your only option is to join the copy-censorship mafia organizations that want to shake down online sharing websites, to learn all their tricks and get into a position to disrupt their activities, before you start your own online sharing platform. Extra points if you can trick them into funding it. People in the know will never spill the beans in a public forum, the howto you are looking for doesn't exist.

If you want my advice, start a web-service for creatives and "content-producers" that enforces creative commons licenses. Get good integration with free software tools. Your goal is to create a network effect for your licensing scheme that draws in all the creative workers into the creative commons dimension. Once all the living producers of media operate in the creative commons, politics will change and all the old media with copy-censorship licenses will loose enforcement. Creative commons production has one killer feature, it's much easier and cheaper to reuse media assets. You have to make new media formats that have mandatory mod-hooks for styling and theming. Producers should be able to reuse any media asset in the creative commons library and apply styles and themes that make them look consistent. You also have to make the finished media products interactive, for example a video game made with Modable.Creative.Commons. assets should allow artists to pause the game and rightclick on a game-asset and save it for later reuse.

You can make something new that doesn't already exist or you can do something boring like yet another sharing site.


I'm not making another sharing site. I want to create an application akin to Spotify and Soundcloud that has equally gigantic libraries without any copyright enforcement so certain libraries aren't sacrificed. while still keeping it social such that people can create and share playlists easily.
I have a feeling this would be pretty popular based on the responses I've got to such an idea.


My advice would be to add a feature for making and remixing music that is on you application, so that it's not just a spotify or soundcloud clone without copywrong enforcement.


I've toyed around with this idea before, but I don't exactly have the technical knowledge to make it come to fruition. My only concern would be that the tech-mafia would go after the end user. You could create a website with a library of all the media and host it in russia, and then maybe an app where links could easily be viewed but is not explicitly linked to the website.


I could program the website I just dont have the expertise when it comes to security and taking precautions against western governments.

Friendship ended with AGPL. Now SSPL is my favorite copyleft license.


>In October 2018, the MongoDB database was released under the SSPL. The Debian, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and Fedora Linux distributions subsequently dropped MongoDB, citing concerns about the SSPL.
Reveals who is a friend and who is a foe.


What do you mean? SSPL is literally free as in free labour.

Discussion of automated bots and scripts.

Hello comrade wizards of /tech/ I am making a thread to seek advice regarding the implementation of simple bots and scripts to simulate user actions. Our team has been experimenting with simple bots ran using tamper monkey, and we are looking to learn more. Please share with us your arcane knowledge in the field of bots, scripts, and sock puppets. And use this thread to discuss anything related in general o7

How do you get those americans to do bot-like mass actions on order?




>Our team


you should infiltrate it then, can't get v& if u hide in the honeypot :' )

Seriously though this info should be useful to any communist interested in information warfare. I'm not asking for personal info or something. Seeing as this is /tech/ I would ask you kindly that you reply in earnest if you may


Is it troubling you that seeing as this is /tech/ you would ask I kindly that I reply in earnest if I may?


What's the hip new way to download from spotify?

All my songs are in my liked playlist so I can't just copy paste the url into a downloader

Spin off from >>7090
Right now we're under threat of big tech companies finding loopholes on the GPL to take out software and make it closed source without giving anything back and because the FSF is staffed by corporate stooges once Stallman dies we're at their mercy.
We also need to promote the use of copyleft licenses and dissuade people from using permissive licenses.

What is there left to do?
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


we need a new license, since the GPL is (as good as it is) still too much of a liberal and idealistic license. consider a license which is based on GPLv3, but which also provides that the software cannot under any circumstances be turned into a commodity or a capital, and must (whether in original or modified form) be not only "free as in freedom" but also "free as in free association of producers" and also "free as in free healthcare". in other words, a license which communizes software, making it the common right of the workers of the world.


I don't like the framing around "giving back" as it misleads from the issue Free Software is trying to solve. In case you are not aware, nowhere in the GPL or the four freedoms is "giving back" present. If you receive a software under the terms of the GPL and modify it, you don't have to make your modifications available to the person who gave you the original software. You do have to make it available to those who use your version of the software. If you send your modified program to a friend, you have send the modified code to them. But you don't have to publish it. Your friend could publish it, and you can't stop them from doing it, but they don't have to do it either.

I have the suspicion that most posters here wouldn't agree with the Free Software philosophy if they actually read what Stallman wrote.


Start with Affero provisions. Service in place of software is a very serious threat to user freedom and with Google's monopolistic take over of web development they're trying to turn all computing into web.


Parity License seems good, dunno if it'll work legally in burgerland though


GPL was defeated when cloud computing and SaaSS became practical for most things. Anything less than AGPLv3 or EUPL is the same as the MIT license. But those aren't perfect either. Something like Parity License is better, but I don't think it would hold up legally. So our best would be to have AGPLv4 drafted while Stallman is still there to oversee it.
If you're a burger, it's imperative that you support the Right to Repair movement both nationally and in your state. The northeast coast has the strongest presence for it.
Open hardware development should be prioritized. This is an important piece to stopping the "proprietary streaming brick" dystopia that is being built.
It is also important to make federated versions of everything you can (under an AGPL-like license of course) as well as mobile apps for using them.

Batch upload the content of ./out on gfycat.com, and paste the URLs in 4 lines (Discord will only display 4 images per line). In case your victim's client can handle the cursed video format change, each animation will consume around 2Gb of RAM and you have 16 of them.

Adapt the script to suit your needs. Enjoy the termination of your account and your newfound freedom!

Someone explain how I can do it pls. I will spam the infradolf discord


File: 1619563869077.png (84.64 KB, 606x285, ClipboardImage.png)


Save the script as whatever.sh, make it executable (chmod +x whatever.sh) and upload the media that comes out to gfycat or whatever.


I don't get how it works. If I make it an executable how does that pertain to it working and uploading to a discord server? Will it crash the whole server?


Once the script makes the pictures, upload them to gfycat. Then simply post the URLs, four at a time. Discord will preview them (most people have this turned on by default) and should lag their browser.

Theoretically, I don't know if it will actually work.
