Questions that don't deserve their own thread
If you have a /tech/ related question that doesn't need a whole thread, post it in here.
Welcome to /tech/, the board for discussion of technology and related topics.
/tech/ is a SFW board so please spoiler and keep NSFW content to a minimum.

The BitChan beta just got released and is looking for people to try it out. It's a decentralized imageboard that runs on top of BitMessage. You can create and completely control your own public or private board, globally moderate as an owner, add admins who can also globally moderate, moderate your own instance locally as a user, upload literally anything with size limits theoretically up to 100gb. Uploads can be sent purely over BitMessage or you can choose to use a hosting service. Uploads that use hosting are subjected to heavy duty protection: every file is zipped, encrypted/password protected, the zip's header is removed and random chunks of the file are removed before being uploaded. The removed parts are hidden in the PGP encrypted message that's sent over BitMessage. Once the upload is received the zip is put back together again, decrypted, unzipped and displayed in the thread. 100% of BitChan traffic happens over tor. Private boards prevent posting from all but explicitly added IDs. The permitted ID list can be edited by the owner at any point to include new IDs or restrict old ones. On public boards any ID can post until it is banned, but because of how BitMessage works, you can always just make another ID. Communications on every board are PGP encrypted. This means that even if someone somehow guessed the board name on BitMessage (basically impossible for reasons I won't go into here), they would be unable to read anything without also having the BitChan PGP symmetric password. Owners can globally change CSS, banners and wordfilters. Owners can even wipe a board if they want. You can join and create as many boards as you want. There's also a prototype steganography thread running alongside of every normal thread. The steg thread shows decrypted steg from jpg/pngs. There are also public and private lists. Lists are just collections of links to boards or other lists. Owners can do much of the same moderation, CSS changes etc. as they can do on boards. They can be updated and edited after their creation. BitChan is fully dockerized so it is cross-OS compatible, but has only been tested with Ubuntu 20.04 and the most recent version of Whonix. I could go on about all the features (there's a lot more), but I just wanted to give you a taste. It's surprisingly fast for text only messages that total around 20kb or less and using hosting services for file attachments, taking usually only a few seconds to a minute depending on how many people are on your part of the BitMessage network.
the desktop thread
1. newsboat (cli): an rss/atom feed reader. (looking for a good alternative.)
2. transmission-daemon (cli): a bittorrent client for all your torrent management needs. along with transmission-remote, i recommend using its web-interface at localhost:9091.
3. nnn (cli): a very fast file manager. i haven't tried vifm, but it also seems like a good alternative, if you are willing to invest some time in getting familiar with the keybindings and doing a little bit of configuration.
4. links (cli, gui): an excellent web-browser with enough features. (there're good alternatives like w3m, elinks, lynx that i haven't tried yet.) (note that you can use it with transmission-cli to add torrents from sites like 1337x.to without the annoying popups and ads.)
5. youtube-dl (cli): a small software to download videos from a variety of streaming sites. you can use it in combination with mpv to stream videos with a minimum cpu usage.
6. gallery-dl (cli): a small software to download photos from a variety of sites. i think ripme is a good alternative.
7. imv (cli): probably the best image viewer out there. a good alternative is feh.
8. tmux (cli): a terminal multiplexer. has a lot of features like tmux-resurrection that allows you to restore sessions (and programs) the way they were left even after shutting down your machine.
9. htop (cli): a good system monitor written in lua. better alternative than top.
10. misc: wget, curl, aria2, fzf, ueberzug, blender, gimp, inkscape, krita, vivaldi, firefox, freecad, qbittorrent, xclip, scrot, xbanish, unclutter, termite, st, xterm, instaloader, tuir, tiktok-scraper, blackbox, dwm, dmenu, surf, qutebrowser, xdman, irssi, weechat, yandex-disk, p7zip, rtorrent, ytfzf.
the best operating systems. everything else is trash.
looking books that talks about making system like this specifically
or something liek sega arcade stuffs (power drift, space harrier, air rescue, aqua jack so on etc) especially the physics model and how stuff sticks and not fall thru the floors despite the gaps between things and maybe lack of polygon meshes?
perhaps the behind the scene/making of logic…
hopefully includes several model/solutions of troubleshooting the same thing of why and whynots
greetings fatchan nice to meet you
refugee from friendster i hope you accept me and my very intelligent tech question gracias denada
so to start, how do i be great coder.
and have money and lots of
hello can pass me the pirate version of red hat
help me understand matrix used between model view projection in 3d softwares???
what will happen if we dont use matrix
I2P can import/export reseed files. Yggdrasil pretty much requires that you manually specify peers to connect to (for the first hop, anyway). ZeroNet will work with pretty much any tracker you throw at it. What does Tor have if the indexing servers and dirauths go down?
how do you write timer fpr programs? or basically something that increase as you wait...
or maybe the 'wait' function?
you access the computer timer or something?
How do I join?
- a link to your website
- a 240x60 banner of your website
then add the others also in the webring
There is a criminal organization in Brazil using NSO Group's Pegasus to infect devices for hack for hire, to incite terrorism, blackmail people, produce illegal pornography and assist in assassinations. They also have other advanced malware, like UEFI implants and even persistent implants for Kindle and Raspberry Pi. Plus face/voice recognition on every camera and microphone they can get into, in public or private places.
Brazil won't do anything to stop them. Only the FBI, CIA and NSA can stop them.
There is also the possibility that they were engaged on the hack of Bezos' smartphone.
If you know of any security researcher who wants to reverse engineer the exploits they are using, I am more than willing to help them.
If you want a story about how they operate, I am willing to work with you to expose them.
>You will currently not be able to access any v3 onion addresses, what is happening is unknown, but it is potentially a huge attack on the entire network. Earlier today I made a post outlining consequences I would be putting into place to deter markets from funding DDoS attacks against each other, as the potential to scale and completely kill every node on the network is a very real potential outcome. Now everything is down and I have no idea if this has sped up the process of this occurring or if it is even an attack at all, all I know is, this is big.
>This attack began after Dread forum owner, HugBunter made a post stating the consequences for market owners who continue to attack rival markets.
I didn't know Tor was this shit and prone to attacks tbh. Makes it a lot more unreliable.
What's a good Tor alternative? I2P?
