Welcome to /tech/ THE RULES: 1. Please spoiler all porn and gore 2. Talk about something actually related to /tech/nology 3. Have fun! Required reading http://cryptome.org/2012/07/gent-forum-spies.htm Beginner Info If you would like to try out GNU/Linux because of https://itvision.altervista.org/why-windows-10-sucks.html, you can do one of the following: 0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine (preferably using KVM or Oracle VirtualBox for newfriends). 1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything (keep in mind that the performance of live distros might be very different than from distro that was booted from your HDD, as most distros are loaded in RAM and don't include the proprietary drivers for NVIDIA GPUs or up-to-date Mesa libraries in their isos). 2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows (make sure to install Windows first, as it can "replace" GRUB or other UNIX bootloaders, and troubleshooting of Windows replacing your bootloader of choice might be painful for people that just started learning about the Linux kernel) 3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux (you really shouldn't do this, if you don't know what you're putting yourself into, see: https://itvision.altervista.org/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html).

If you wanted to create a website that only allowed Computer and Laptop users to browse, how would you go about it?
21 posts omitted.
>>3146 If you read the thread, that's the reason why I asked. Some things can be standardized, not all. "General" standards are the worst of all. http://harmful.cat-v.org/standards/ Most websites should be rewritten into real programs.

>>3196 kek, the developers had some fun with that.
I'm getting pretty tired of imageboards. I'd prefer if people had their own blogs or websites and some way of connecting those sites, but people don't seem to be interested in personal sites anymore. Neocities sounds like an ok idea, but in practice it's just yet another modern site that requires google captcha and god knows what else.
>>3201 I'd make my own fun website if I could just pay someone to give me a server. Instead I have to fill a tax form with all my personal details and enable jewgle captcha first. Alternately I could host my website from my own computer, but I don't want some attentionwhore to pay chinese bot farms $5 to DDoS my home IP.
>>3202 Just host your website as a Tor hidden service. It's free to do so and you don't need to open your ports. I'm not sure if you can avoid DDoS attacks, but it may be the case anyways.
>>3203 This. Somehow in 2020 there's still this mentality of "Tor is only for cp and glowies", like this shit doesn't happen in clearnet. Today's clearnet is pozzed to all hell in terms of censorship and the effort required to host anything safely is stupid. Honestly anyone who gives somewhat of a fuck should host/provide a mirror over Tor.

BitChan Beta v0.9.0 Release Anonymous 11/15/2020 (Sun) 19:38:41 No.3162 [Reply]
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. https://github.com/813492291816/BitChan

>>3169 Feds haven't been able to prosecute anyone who used BitMessage for perpetrating a crime. BM is battle tested. This should be clarified. People who have used BM to assist in crimes, such as sales and shipping of illicit goods, have been prosecuted. One case is that of Jones (https://www.justice.gov/usao-mdfl/pr/texas-resident-charged-illegally-selling-controlled-substances-silk-road-bitmessage, https://www.justice.gov/usao/flm/press/2014/May/20140530_Jones_Complaint.pdf). However, this case was actually prosecuted due to the use of physical mailboxes and tracking through USPS. Jones was only verified as a BM user during the subsequent investigation. BM did not provide the information (through leaking etc.) to allow the prosecution to get off the ground. What is of note is that no successful ransomware attacks which involved the transfer of crypto have resulted in a prosecution. This is what is meant by 'battle tested'.

>>3186 If you've been following the change log for the next release, media embedding has been removed and a no-referrer fix has been added. How to remove the unlisted media embed tag and add the referrer fix has also been posted in BC 0.9.0.
BitChan's been updated.

the glow-in-the-dark RIAA niggers took down the github repo for youtube-dl and it seems that using the latest version no longer works on any videos that have copyrighted music in them. any other software for this? obviously something that rips the media and doesn't re-encode or anything niggerlicious like that gas kikes

>>3134 heh, welcome to the internet troonfriend.
>>3134 no, not dead. almost dead. the whole project was starving because of lack of maintainers. before the shutdown pretty much the only person doing anything with the repo was dstftw and he only bothered to show up like once a month to merge a few critical bugfixes. other stuff like fixes to less important extractors, improvements and new extractors were brushed aside and ended up hanging on the pr's list for eternity (iirc there was something like 700-ish pr's in september). i tried adding a new extractor some time ago and even though it got reviewed by someone, it just hanged there until the dlc fork came along and finally merged it. so yeah, not exactly dead, more like a bleeding corpse.

>>3151 I did, only 480p .m3u8s keep popping up, which is weird.
when i set my hostname on my linux machine, shouldn't other systems be able to just type my hostname and connect to it? for example if i set my hostname to "box" shouldnt i be able to type on a computer on the same network "ping box" and get responses from "box"? i used to be able to do this with my file server but one day hostnames just stop resolving.
richard stallman uses jitsi im pretty sure

What are your (creative) solution for dynamic ip?
>>3081 Create an overlay network where the current address is bound to a public key, so that when the physical address changes all it takes is to change the associated value and since the overlay address is a crypto key I can encrypt data for free, too. Not my idea, but it's cool.
>>103 i dont have anything cool to say except devuan, nice also >don't let this board get more dead then it already is than*
>>3082 What is the resolver?
>>3084 As long as some kind of table can be built, resolving the overlay address to get the physical address is easy, just store it as a value in the table with the overlay as a key. It's pretty much what also happens with routers and IP addresses. With an overlay network the already existing protocols can't really be used, but it can be worked around by using a dht or something like that.
