This technology will grow back your foreskin.
Why this one instead of the DTR?
whats dtr
Dual Tension Restorer, a guy hand makes them and they work much better than other devices according to a lot of people. It pulls the inner and outer foreskin at the same time and are made of a high quality nylon

official website

>The DTR is two foreskin restoration devices in one. It's a tapeless self contained traction device made from nylon that does not require any straps or weights to create tension. It's almost indestructible, easy to clean and very easy to use. It can be set to any tension desired or use an auto tension feature with the use of an elastic band. The device works by creating a dual tension on the skin between the pusher plate and the gripping cone. This helps creating inner foreskin as well as outer.

I was thinking about picking up one of these, but I'm hesitant because I don't want to shell out $80 dollars... I'll likely pick this up though in the future

I have some technololi movies but can't post them here with Lynx browser. Lynx chan don't like Lynx browser.
>Lynx browser
Serious question why would anyone use Lynx unironically?

Or to only have a look to see a thread with no pictures?
There are a wide variety of websites that may be accessed with just lynx such as wikipedia.

Lynx is more minimal, and that's nice if you like minimalism.
Lynx works gud with torsocks, and in fact it's one of their recommended browsers. It avoids all the web beacons tracking shit, because Lynx only downloads exactly the URL you click on, and never anything more. The only exception is cookies, but it's configurable to accept only cookies from the same host, or even reject them all entirely. You can also build Lynx without cookies, and it doesn't even take long to build it on a 10-year old netbook or similar low-end hardware.
As for images, you can configure an external viewer of your choice. This is in my /etc/mailcap, and it just werks:
image/gif; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/jpeg; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/png; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/tiff; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/x-ms-bmp; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"

Hi everyone! I have a question about image serving. I'm making a 4chan clone, and currently what I do is I download the image from the client, make thumbnails on the web server, and then I use rsync to send it to my "image server" which is just an Ubuntu box that serves a folder impartially. An issue (I think) is that I end up downloading the user's file twice. I download it once on the web server, and then again on the "image server."

I also have to make thumbnails, in which case I just use imagemagick. Currently, I make the thumbnails on the web server because I will likely have multiple instances of them running, it seems fitting to have harsher processes there. As a result, I also send the thumbnails and more to the "image server."

One issue I have is that I also have to manually delete files via rsync. While nginx is fast, if I were to soft delete a file in my database (the database contains basic file information like filename, format, date, and more), I wouldn't be able to forward the changes and prevent the box from serving the files. I depend on rsync to work, when I would prefer "checking" if a file is allowed to be shared before I send it to the client. Do you think it would be worth it to write up a REST api to ensure more control?

As you can see, there is no sync between the file system and the database, and this can result in me serving illegal content or for stale content to stack up and waste space.

Do you guys have any suggestions to how I can improve this architecture? Are there better ways to handle this? I'm going to have one instance of an "image server" and multiple instances of my web servers. I really don't want some random power outage to occur and end up serving illegal content unknowingly because I would have no way to sync my file system the database.

One solution I was thinking of was forwarding the request to a custom REST api that would communicate with the database and check if the files are safe to share. The only issue is that this doesn't solve the duplicate download....

Any advice would be helpful!

(pic related, it's what the app currently looks like)

>takes up extra storage and time to compute

I still can't believe Safari doesn't support webp... for fucks sake even Palemoon does it
is just cancer the worst file format out there I hate how nothing can work with it.
Can we force all websites to drop webp support? And go back to the old days?
there isn't wrong with webp other than it's lack of support. If webp had the same support as jpg in the browser and in applications, then we wouldn't be complaining. Fuck apple and fuck safari for blocking progress
Fuck goygle and fuck their webp standard even if it is "open format", goygle will inch their bullshit in like goygle did with chrome and web standard. And fuck you.
This only less hostile.
>there isn't wrong with webp other than it's lack of support

Yet here we are and its almost 2020 and this is still not supported.

You know how its like to download a picture and find out its webp? So I need to run my script(linux) to convert it to PNG? Its infuriating!

>there isn't wrong with webp
I actually hate webp for the fact that it hides what it is a webp can be a crap format like jpeg or a perfect format like PNG only no one knows because webp is fucken container and both of these things can be in it so you have no idea if its PNG(perfect quality will not degrade, takes lots of space) or jpeg(degrades, crap quality however less space).

I hope no one supports webp and everyone drops support for it, especially google.

This would be against the rules on 4channel because posting pictures of trump that positively affirm trump is against the rules on 4channel.

Are there any right wing or republican programmers here on 16chan?

Is there anyone here who like me has a problem with censorship in technology communities against the right wing?
>being into politics
>thinking of politics as a line rather than 8 directional

The traffic that doubled 4chan during the election should probably go kill themselves for the fact that their reddit is so capitalistically corrupt that it forced them onto a place they're not compatible with at all. Programmers are communist tier with linux they say, so are you asking if anyone here works for google or intel or something? A statist?

t. faggot that can't use a computer
Communism works with computers because it costs almost nothing to copy a program.

Communism does not work with these products:
>housing construction
>school resources like books and buildings and teachers
>other consumer goods

The reason it does not work with these goods is because these are not so easily copied. It costs immense resources to produce many of these, and they are not finite. Land for example is very finite, and there is only so much to go around.

But, that's like, you're opinion, man.....
huh... ur right it was probably the traffic doubling in the 2016 elections along with jidf that caused most of 4chode's problems.

imagine having only one good video about explaining how having a hammer that does two good things btfos the whole unix philosophy to some extent.
If there's something /g/ doesn't need is a male attention whore.
I am a unix demi-god. I have studied the unix way more than you realize.

If you truly understood my video about hammers then you'd realize why forth is "the ultimate unix way".
I sent this to Rob landley:

Thesis: Since filesize and memory footprint are the most precious
commodity, toybox needs forth.


Toybox apps must be:
A. Fast:
Forth is significantly faster than sh + awk.
B. Small:
Forth < 1 kB
C. Memory Safe:
Require root to run forth in memory unprotected mode,
(As a last resort) I'll add memory safety.

Hold on a minute why was one of these pictures removed?

I just now realized that some of the boards are SFW however one picture was literally of a silicone tube.

So is posting silicone tubes NSFW?
Yes Anon. If you had a corporate desk job, do you think the boss might have something to say about you browsing (whether witnessed by co worker and rated by IT) a thread with silicone fleshlights and child rubber dolls? Please think before you post in SFW boards.

Durga is a most respectable man who feeds his family with Java and he pays all of his taxes as well. He lives in a very modest home and collects comic books.
>Durga is a most respectable man

Durga (Sanskrit: दुर्गा, IAST: Durgā), identified as Adi Parashakti, is a principal and popular form of the Hindu Goddess.[4][5][6] She is a goddess of war, the warrior form of Parvati, whose mythology centres around combating evils and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity, and Dharma the power of good over evil.[5][7]Durga is also a fierce form of the protective mother goddess, who unleashes her divine wrath against the wicked for the liberation of the oppressed, and entails destruction to empower creation.[8]
Durga is a respectable man. Shame on you for trying to defame him.
