>why don't you guys just fork the vichan repo and let people contribute code as they wish without having to go through some formal process of being a developer.
leftypol.org has been open source from the start - https://git.leftypol.org/leftypol/leftypol
although it's a bit nastier because it's actually a lainchan fork
openbsd is also wankery btw. no disrespect to BSD

honestly this doesnt even matter: it's a volunteer codebase which has had about 2 extremely casual devs in 2 years. making C a prerequisite is a fast way to kill any chance of more volunteers, not to mention the extra attention needed to avoid security issues.

"I don't know how to torrent. It's too complicated and scary for me, so I'm happy to pay corporations a regular fee for temporary access to their content" is exactly the learned helplessness corporations have been pushing for years with their UI streamlining and walled gardens. It's symptomatic of a bigger problem: "The internet shifted and I don't know (or never learned) how to seek valid information in this new environment." Adding "reddit" to every Google search you make isn't a sustainable solution, it's just one most people landed on for now.

What I think gets often lost is that it's not a personal individual failure as much as it's a deliberate behavioral curation by corporations on the populace. Internet corporations do not want savvy internet users. They want to create mass consumers who value convenience.

Most insane thing is that many people will call you a conspiracy theorist for pointing it out. What do these people think is the purpose behind "marketing" and "advertising"? Do these users think multibillion dollar corporations maintain their edge and consolidate monopolies through vibes? Apple has entire teams of psychologists for this kind of thing.

A very basic example of corporations curating consumer behaviors: there is no logical reason why anyone should care if your text message shows up on their phone as blue or green. And yet - tens of thousands of Apple users pay attention and form judgments around it

Social technologies are the answer. Circulating USB sticks between friends. A clubhouse computer terminal that one person has the user for and another person has the password. Stuff like that


LAN parties where you teach people how to torrent. Wasn't there something like that? Or was it only for encrypting your emails?


I was at my most computer literate in highschool when me and my nerd friends had LAN parties every weekend. I'm eternally trapped in the 2000's.

Even images on this website are webp. Try and save that thumbnail kek. Yet you can't post webp. Weird.


Chrome is ass.


It is, but it's not IE is basically what I meant. Whatever the case, the shit Chrome does, FF needs to implement. Sometimes even broken shit.


Trusted sources only ;) broken settings saved the day. I tried to fix it but I couldn't look too much into it. The way lainchan handles images is very convoluted for no reason.


Eh isn't it one of those exploits where a lot of things have to go wrong for it to work?

I was wondering, have any of you guys experience bluetooth connection issues on linux?

I originally got into linux through manjaro, and it was great until about a year later, where I had issues with bluetooth connection, (plus others, but I won't pad the post with them), I then switched to mint.

On mint, similar issues, (plus new ones since of KDE + mint = bad tim), and then switched to opensuse.

It was then I realized the solution for the bluetooth problem, don't installing tlp.
I forgot I installed it before, but when I installed since of opensuse's poor battery life, my bluetooth became just as bad as on mint and manjaro.
(Granted, the most days I have ran opensuse without rebooting is a week since I get like 100 updates a day, and some ask for me to reboot).

Have you guys experience this tlp and bluetooth issue?
Or alternatively: you find the two working together fine, but instead have other issues with the bluetooth?
I spend like 10 hours in the past trying to fine a solution to the bluetooth issue, and it was insane that it was a issue with tlp, (especially since the problem seemed to only appear days after you installed tlp).

Most peripherals are broken in some ways. The firmware often has to deal with unreliable hardware and drivers need to be coded around buggy firmware. For this dance to work, each layer needs to be sufficiently specified and debugged.
Many vendors don't care much for linux (though significantly more then for the BSDs). They either offer low-quality contributions, don't provide open-source implementors with sufficient documentation, or are actively trying to make their work even harder. This leads to scenarios such as my laptops network card not being able to use both wifi and bluetooth under linux.
>It was then I realized the solution for the bluetooth problem, don't installing tlp.
IIRC the default tlp config sets peripherals in powersaving mode. Linux drivers could have badly tuned timeouts or missing wakeup event handlers, that interfere with open connections. See the kernel documentation on device power management https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/v4.14/driver-api/pm/devices.html

It wasn't supposed to be like this.


And to think that JavaScript sucks as a language and a runtime environment. Plus the new shit chrome is pushing like DRM and the security nightmare that's webp.


we live in a society


corporations have been trying to turn web browsers into operating systems for a decade and counting


web 2.0 was a mistake, the internet is slower now than it was 15 years ago despite the insane increases in broadband speeds


What's the source for the pic?


>In the fall of 2020, gig workers in Venezuela posted a series of images to online forums where they gathered to talk shop. The photos were mundane, if sometimes intimate, household scenes captured from low angles—including some you really wouldn’t want shared on the Internet.
>In one particularly revealing shot, a young woman in a lavender T-shirt sits on the toilet, her shorts pulled down to mid-thigh.
>The images were not taken by a person, but by development versions of iRobot’s Roomba J7 series robot vacuum. They were then sent to Scale AI, a startup that contracts workers around the world to label audio, photo, and video data used to train artificial intelligence.

I wanted a robot vacuum but now I'm not so sure.

Robot vacuums are a retarded concept. Sure, I totally want to have a 1/3 of my floor clean at all times, but I want the 1/3 to change and be in a long stripe around the apartment. Vacuum the floor yourself you lazy fucks, anybody using a robot vacuum deserves to have their genitals photographed on the toilet (and worse).

As a lazy motherfucker with enough expendable income to buy one of these things, I agree. It takes like 10 minutes to vacuum my entire apartment with an actually powerful vacuum/hoover/sucky-machine. I bought a Shark one for 250 imperial currency and it's fucking fantastic, turbo suction power.


Exactly, same goes for those fucking lawnmower bots imo. If you buy any of these things you are even more worthless then a vacuumrobot


>just work more!!!!!

The difference here is that mowing your lawn is retarded by itself.


lol you can get one for a couple dozen bucks these days, thats a nice price for not having to clean every day by myself


>rely on this every day
>literally ctrl+v an image in
>it crops out the focused object with 90% accuracy
>saves me from having to crop stuff by hand
>can just right click -> copy image when I'm done
>paste it directly into GIMP
>it was perfect

<they "update it"

<it goes way slower now by giving you a stupid animation
<they wrap the actual image file in some javashit so you can't actually right click and copy the image anymore (artificial scarcity moment)
<try to inspect in browser console
<the url is a fucking blob link now

>try selecting text
>it doesn't select


special place in GNU/lag for whoever at the W3C decided that was a good idea to put in CSS


you can't screenshot it with the transparent checkered background, then it won't be a transparency anymore. the whole point was a PNG transparency
OP I've also used that site and noticed that the other day. they fixed it though, I came back today and I could right click copy image again. So whatever they did they reversed it.


these are attempts to lock down what is supposed to be an open web.
javascript was built by a corp to add complexity to web pages and for years it was a broken mess until corps flooded the standards bodies with their own people to align with their goal of making more complex and locked down "webapps" instead of just pages.
now most of the internet doesn't even work if you don't allow every page to download 1MB of minified js junk that needs some "v8" intepreter shit in your browser to execute.
it's basically java applets, but more broken and insecure and the jvm is bundled with your browser.


>you can't screenshot it with the transparent checkered background
then just erase the background in GIMP with transparency on and then save as png.
>what are custom stylesheets?
>what is the reader function in firefox?
>what is archive.is?
how are you so helpless?

Biden admin passed crypto regulations, its just taking a while for the treasury to implement it


Any Marxist analyses on the nature of crypto?


it's a speculative asset that really only exists because it feeds from all the excess money printing that is used keep the other asset bubbles from popping in this hyper financialized economy. It really is just a symptom of excess money printing. Just watch when Fed rises interest rates and cryptos plummet because that means no more free money to inflate the bubble and keep the illusion of growth and value going.
