Richard Stallman resigned Anonymous 09/19/2019 (Thu) 02:38:51 No. 52 [Reply]
Richard Stallman resigned from the FSF over a long weird comment he made about Epstein
What does this mean for free software?
I personally think that he overreacted. He's successfully passed off projects to others in the past, but I have little faith that the FSF will find a competent, or trustworthy, replacement.

>Can you explain it a bit more?
I'm no legal expert however stalman tried to force something like a auto update for the license from the start only a legal auto update.

Meaning if you would license your code with GPL3 and GPL4 comes around it legally is under GPL4 now.

You can see how stupid and dangerous this is.
I can not find linus talking about this, however I remember it.

GPL3 is ....
Did you read a GPL2 license VS a GPL3 license?

GPL2 is normally written.
GPL3 reads like a raving lunatic that has schizophrenia.

I don't know if GPL3 is even enforceable in court.

Why does everybody who's anybody use irc if it's insecure?
>Even if the server itself encrypted the messages/uses SSL, it's a moot point: everyone can connect and read what you're saying unless you encrypted it on your end. IRC admins can read your private messages as well.

>The vast majority of servers I've visited also expose your IP Address to everyone unless you're behind a proxy or VPN, so there's no real anonymity. Even the ones that partially mask your IP will show part of where you are. For example: Random432342.hsd1.ca.comcast.net. While other servers will block everything, all IRCops/admins know the real IP you're connecting from. What's to stop them from cooperating with law enforcement?

>Your IRC client could also be vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks / string formatting vulnerabilities / etc. Or maybe you'll just click on a drive-by-download link...

Just the fact that everyone can see my ip scares me... Is there a way I can talk to all the cool kids but still be safe? What's your irc setup? What's the most common setup? I really want to start using it, but after reading this I'm a little put away...

You are right to be cautious - IRC is good for some things, bad for others. It is a good choice for a technical project community, and a very bad choice for discussion of politics.
You should assume the default for all IRC channels is permanent, publicly accessible logs. Very useful for
For a server such as freenode, here's a pretty standard setup:
- connect once to the server using your real IP
- register your nick with the server
- reply to the email they sent to confirm registration
- setup SASL on your IRC client
- disconnect and turn your VPN on
- connect back in, hope SASL works, then join a channel

This solves the I.P. problem. It will simply instead say "username joined from 111.222.333.444@Your_VPN, which leaks far less information. That protects you from rando's, but admins can still get you.

If you want to talk about something that's not a technical reference project, you'll probably want something else. I've heard Riot, Telegram, and Signal mentioned, but I don't know enough to recommend one.

IRC is from the 80's and nobody cared about being 100% anonymous. I still don't. But I tried to use IRC some months ago and the server bitched at me for not having a registered nick (which requires signing up with email address). Those are extra steps I don't want to go through, so I didn't bother, and I /quit the server. Haven't bothered with IRC since. Back in the day, if someone else had taken your nick, you just used another one. It wasn't a big deal, and your friends would recognize you anyway from your hostname. Also we had a lot of fun with netsplits and channel takeovers.
If you want to be safe from buffer overflows and shit like that, just setup OpenBSD on an ARM SBC and run IRC on there from an unprivileged account that's not in the wheel group and also doesn't have doas/sudo access. I would guess the IRC clients in packages/ports have been pledged and unveiled by now.

The way to do programming is just to code java and shut the fuck up and if a black woman or a trans woman or a feminist with purple hair shows up you better shut your fucking mouth and keep your opinion to yourself and say yes ma'im or they'll send the cavalry quick.

ok, it's pretty straight forward.

> download hardened gentoo with SELinux patches
> set up systemd
> download and configure git master from the tor project
> build it using the provided makefile
> set up the aliases and unit files to start tor when your computer starts
> configure interfaces, ports, and application settings carefully to ensure all traffic is routed through tor
> double check everything because you most likely fucked it up and will get vanned immediately

<I mean you could also download the tor browser bundle, start it up, and have it just werk and be properly configured like the kids on youtube do but I don't know why anyone would do that.

obviously all of this advice only applies to minecraft and I don't condone any illegal activities.

Tor is often banned and you must use bridge connections. Reinstall and go to their website to get some, or get the bridge connections somewhere else.

Also finding onions is basically impossible and people will meme your ass that finding them is easy.

I'm really enjoying this new home.Perhaps we were too harsh on the OP.
Just gotta give it time to grow, pretty sure he launched it today. Could be comfy but I dunno, I wonder how long it'll take to get some traction
It will prolly take some time cause the every thread on halfchan containing pointers to this site gets zapped. Even a mention of it results in a ban. Yet here we are boiiiz.
Yep, all 50 of us out of 200k. This kinda shit is why pisscord is taking off. You may as well have a ring and that actually is advertised so is getting used for small groups. When you have 10 different bunkers to choose from the 500 that could have been becomes soon 10.

They don't even have an RPi4 install image. That means they probably don't support that SoC yet. You should probably get an RPi3 instead, at least for now.
On the plus side, the RPi3 is based on the ARM Cortex-A53, which doesn't do speculative execution, and thus is 100% immune to all Spectre class bugs. That CPU and the Cortex-A7 are the only relatively recent ARM processors that aren't vulnerable. The SoC in the RPi4 has also another faster processor but that one does do the speculative execution, so it's vulnerable to Spectre.

All phones are compromised and worst spyware then it's insane to throw away x86 and then talk what phone to get.

>rasberrypi 4
Is it the one with the WiFi ? They stopped making non WiFi ones some time ago even rasberrypi zero has wifi now. I think you can puzzle this together yourself. And answer why.
<LMFFO! rasberrypi zero is the cheapest option and has no pins to be the cheapest. LMFFO! Lets give it wifi capability! And no pins! LMFFO!

You know my x86 PC has no capability to contact WiFi or Bluetooth or cell network. This is why its safe. The hypervisor can do shit if its disconnected from internet.

how do i post on 4chan wilst using tor? Anonymous 10/18/2019 (Fri) 10:23:54 No. 387 [Reply]
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?

4chan janitors have lost their fucking gords. Tumblr is actually a better and more spicy chan than 4chan, now. that's why people are fleeing the chans into altchans and into discord.

Unfortunately it's hard to do becuase we can't make a post on 4chan deciding "where to go" as an exodus cause it will get deleted.

This is why the sign of a true chan is that they wont' censor links to other sides, because a true chan isn't afraid of losing users. They know they are the most based. This is how 4chan *used* to be many years ago.
>becuase we can't make a post on 4chan deciding "where to go" as an exodus cause it will get deleted.
>our IQ is too low to know how to do this
We always did call you our retarded cousins for a reason.
Too low effort even for 4chan.
