Q.T.D.D.T.O.T. Anonymous 12/05/2019 (Thu) 17:05:49 No. 650 [Reply] [Last]
retarded question i know,but i want to run my computer off of ethernet so my isp piece of shit isn'ttrying to circumvent my security stuff, but we have a whole ethernet relay that goes from the main ethernet port to the modem to the tp link which splits it into 4 and it goes some other places. our main ethernet source only has two ports and the tv gets to hog one of them and everything else shares one main source. the tp link has 6 ethernet ports so two other things could connect to it, but what i want to know is if i use the ethernet from that will the isp router still be able to see my search stuff and mac addresses n shit? also questions that don't deserve their own threads because this question alone did nothing to even deserve it's own post.
your TV is plugged into the internet, I can't help..

Laptops are a nomads and dissidents only friend. It is mobile and easily disposable. You can make copies of encrypted drives incase of data loss, ensuring you are confident of your hardware before encryption. Theft and surveillance is most effectively countered by encryption or anticipation of theft, not by how inaccessible your hard-drive is. If it is not feasible or recommended to rely mostly on encryption, it is still easier to relocate, conceal, or destroy a laptop and it components than a desktop. I however can't vouch for the security of hardware between the choices for which I am not a hardware engineer. I've read you can render a reliable thinkpad if you find an untampered BIOs and wipe the drive with a fresh OS. Write the boot sector to a USB or something if you can't trust your machine around others. I would add that in the instances of physical theft, social engineering, or torture, there should be a method of preventing this. I wonder if this would work, hear me out:

how do i post on 4chan wilst using tor? Anonymous 10/18/2019 (Fri) 10:23:54 No. 387 [Reply] [Last]
Hey 16chan, this board seems to have attracted a lot of dark netters like me. I am also a complete fucking noob. I just started using linux and tor. I know not to connect to the same wifi network every time, but i only have two. is that sufficient, if i switch between them every time i refresh my identity or open this place up? Another question: how do i use 4chan without the fucking jannies blocking my IP for not wanting to succumb to their captcha ridden honeypot?

>>620 It's nice to see Wireguard has been accepted in the linux kernel.
>>622 I guess, I use Gentoo for my workstation, but I would never run anything but OpenBSD on a VPS or internet facing node. I'm running my VPN client on an OpenBSD Beaglebone that routes all my traffic over Wireguard. Also with my own private Wireguard and DNS server my speeds are pretty amazing. Moreover I'm not trusting some anonymous nerds from who da fuq knows where with my DNS and internet traffic like with a VPN-as-a-service. My next task is to set up Unbound as an ad blocker like described here: https://www.tumfatig.net/20190405/blocking-ads-using-unbound8-on-openbsd/

old = good Anonymous 11/28/2019 (Thu) 13:05:17 No. 621 [Reply] [Last]
I only play old versions of games that build with old libraries like SDL 1.2 and work fine in the framebuffer console and don't require OpenGL.
>>621 To some extent I agree. Old often means stable. Stable == good.

I was reading this https://github.com/leandromoreira/digital_video_introduction End up at: Colors, Luminance and our eyes Fuck me, I really fucking tried to see that the squares A and B was the same color, but could not do it. I ended up opening the image in Gimp and use the dropper.. shit seems same. Draw a line between A and B in the color and brain explode.

Now here's the weird part. The GIF has 484 frames that vary in size between 1x1 and 1152x1152 pixels. Pic is part of the output of "identify" (from ImageMagick). It's fucking weird.
(11.75 KB 804x484 mpv.png)
Also mpv plays it just fine, whereas sxiv sucks balls for larger GIFs in general.
>>603 It's blended, your server is crap. if you opened it in an image editor you would clearly see the frame types.
(76.42 KB 500x500 pepesmoke.png)
It's not really my server, it's just the default Xorg server that comes in Ubuntu. And I really don't think the problem is related to the X server since mpv plays the GIF just fine. In fact, I just checked with "top", and it uses only 2% of the memory. But sxiv tries to hog everything right away. I also tried "animate" (from ImageMagick) and it also wants to hog all memory. Those softwares suck.
