cheap hardware Anonymous 03/01/2021 (Mon) 19:16:58 No. 1478 [Reply] [Last]
nowadays I look for cheap hardware deals. Not for games, but for specific jobs like mining, does anyone sell to me? or recommend a way to find it cheap?
>>1478 Try the Nvidia Jewcrypto cards.

Linux or Windows Anonymous 09/19/2020 (Sat) 10:19:58 No. 1230 [Reply] [Last]
I have Windows 7 on a laptop that I bought from a friend. I am wondering if I should keep it or install a Linux OS on it. I plan on using it to play DVDs and playing video games only. What should I do?
>>1230 You are better off using Linux Mint or just upgrade to windows 10.
No matter what you do you should always read the documentation before installation. While using linux type "man *programhere*" to find further instruction.
>>1230 Keep Win7 as long as you possibly can, and if and when you run into problems or incompatibilities, then change over to a Linux distro. In the meantime start learning about Linux. You can even download some distros that have 'live' versions and boot/run them off USB to try out first, play with them, get a feel for it.
What are the typical issues that Linux newcomers run into ? What are persistent issues with Linux (I heard there are sound issues, but what else) ? Wine vs Windows 7 boot for gaming ? What is drastically different when using Linux compared to Windows 7 ?
>>1230 Nothing. It is the White Man's way unlike us Ni/g/gers.

Redpill me on Tails Os Anonymous 01/20/2021 (Wed) 13:04:50 No. 1412 [Reply] [Last]
Fist of all I have a question. Is the Edward Sno*den thing a hoax? On tails' official website Sno*den and the co-founder of the Tor Project are the main "promoters" of this linux distro. Sno*den is described as a (3 letter agency) whistleblower, yet the same agency he is allegedly against financed The Tor project. Is this whole affair a false flag operation? What is your take anon?
Snowden was before Linus got sent do re-education camp and before systemd. Maybe it was ok back then, but a lot has changed.
Wouldn't trust snowman. how can you trust anything on the web now. i've hjeard fbi talk, referred it during an interview,lecture, that using tails is a great way to get eyes on you. best privacy is not using any computer at all.
>>1430 Yeah you're right about not using it. But why would I trust a rando on an african ape chimping board over some hipster who """used""" to work at NSA?

Well, with fairly little effort from your end you could turn Emacs not only into something resembling an integrated development environment, but actually make it into something vastly superior and much more useful, not to mention an enormous amount of fun. Only boring people who doesn't really look at programming as an activity that could be enjoyable and fun turn into such corporate-friendly garbage like IDEs. I bet you also use Windows?

Secure Email Anonymous 12/19/2020 (Sat) 04:40:22 No. 1333 [Reply] [Last]
What is the general consensus on non (((google))) email? I've only ever heard of Proton Mail, but like many things of a similar nature, I have heard rumors of it being (((Proton Mail))). Anyone know of any better alternatives? I'm not looking to fedpost over email, just looking for email that isn't going to sell my data, will be relatively secure, and will likely be around in a decade. Ideally cheaper than Proton.

>>1338 Don't see use for the paid account tbo
>>1340 I've only reached 1.2GB after 15 years with Gmail, so I'm sure I could make do with 500MB. However the Protonmail free account puts a "sent from Protonmail secure email" signature after every email. Don't like that, but don't want to pay $4/month to get rid of it. Agreed that the rest of the features of a Plus account are useless.
(11.59 KB 845x155 Screenshot (1076).png)
>>1341 Ah your right, had noticed the signature before but didn't realize losing it meant more shekels. Take a look at https://cock.li/ ? I've used as throw away accounts before, but never as a main email They have one option that isn't a meme address @airmail.cc
Id say whatever email you find, its always a GREAT RULE to delete your old email and keep your inbox clean every week. Write the important information from the emails or just download them. There is a big chance the deleted emails will get deleted from their servers anyway, since they will think it must be trash if you delete it. They probably purge deleted emails every month or so and thats ENOUGH for you.

Bored I decided to go look at the old /hover/ board on 8kun. Saw there is a massively active qoomer thread there. One of the threads posted a bunch of links to social media scrapping tools talking about tracking antifa. The post had a picture that had a bellingcat logo. Some of the first responses were calling bellingcat fake and gay. Never heard of bellingcat before. Are they fake and if so what were they caught doing? Thanks,

>>1471 That explains it. You said MI6 and Department of Defence so I thought they were active in the UK and the US and I somehow missed them.
>>1472 Well technically they are active, but not a high profile. I have seen CNN and Whitehouse Press Secretary cite them as a source, just not often For Assad gas attacks they claim they had documented social media posts that proved the attack happened Same for the "downing of MH17" They came up with the bogus social media posts to prove it was Russian that did In both cases their info was bullshit, in both cases CNN and the WH used them as a "source"
>>1473 They tried to frame Russia directly for the MH17 or made up the posts of the pro-russia fighters claiming to have shot it down? I appologize I am behind on the whole MH17 story and never heard exactly who did what. The wikipedia seems rather biased for info.
>>1474 So the war had started a few weeks before, and Ukraine was using air support on the rebels. Most airlines had decided it wasn't wise to fly over an active warzone. But Ukraine never 'officially' closed its air space. Dutch flight on it way to Asia somewhere flew over donbass an was shot down by a surface to air missle Rebels claimed it wasnt them that did it Russia said maybe the active UKR Air Force jets in the area shot it down Ukraine said rebels stole a Buk missile system, and while trying to shoot down a fighter accidently shot down the airliner Fast forward a few days, and Bellingcat said there was social media post of a Buk missile system driving through rebel territory heading towards Russia. This was suppose to be proof the rebels had a missile system While the video was circulated, what was in question was "when the video was taken" Iirc, It was argued, that the billboard in the video was for a car dealer that had closed a year before and the billboard was no longer even there Just a few weeks before Sen. Jim Inhofe stood on the Senate floor with pictures of Russian tanks that proved Russia was invading Ukraine. Except a google image search showed that the images were from Georgia 2013 https://www.prisonplanet.com/busted-kiev-mps-try-to-fool-us-senator-with-proof-of-russian-tanks-in-ukraine.html

>>1460 Just run an old school text BBS on your pi. There's a bunch of open source BBS software for Linux, but you can also write your own (it's not that hard). For starters, look up DayDream, Eagles BBS, and Mconv (mconv.sourceforge.net). Avoid Mystic BBS because it's closed source. Or you could do something like an NNTP server, but I dunno how easy those are to configure (never tried it). However, those will surely run on a pi, because NNTP dates back to the 80's and the code isn't a bunch of bloated crap like modern web.

>>58 If you were sure it was jidf, you should have included the footage of the vampiric rabbi and stated that the ban was anti-semitic on those grounds. btw, I have no idea, i just wanted to throw that in there. what did the ban message look like?

>>1354 thanks anon I was unbanned a long time ago by writing an appeal and making it very clear it wasn't cp and yes it did have the procedure probably redpilled an anon or two
>>1370 My lord, you really dodged a bullet there. It may have not gone anywhere but with even the mention of CP shit can go down real quick.
>>58 I would look into a dedicated IP. Some VPN providers offer them.

Does anybody know of a good monitor or tv for 720p content? I'd really like a monitor that has EXACTLY 1280x720 pixels at a 1:1 Pixel Aspect Ratio. It seems impossible to find such a thing, just endless rows upon rows of 1366x768 shitters. I fucking hate scaling and it seems to me that trying to display a 1280x720 video stream on these is going to cause blurry scaling. If true 1280x720 devices don't exist, then does anybody know of at least a 1366x768 that would let me display pixel-to-pixel in the middle of the frame? Really I'm mostly interested in something that would look good displaying a 1280x720p @ 30 hz signal from a PS3. It looks great but too small on my 20" 4:3 CRT and it looks like absolute ass scaled to 1080p on my bigg projector. I thought it would be a simple matter to just get a used 720p monitor for this purpose but they don't seem to exist in any quantity. The only display I have that is exactly 1280x720 is my GPD Win and it lacks an input port (in addition to being only 5 inches). >HDCRTs Wish I could find a nice one at around the 20"-24" ish size. I can find these all day on craigslist near me but they are absolutely fucking massive and I'm not looking for a 300 lb 36" monster at the moment. >The 24" and 32" Widescreen BVMs fucking epic, true multiscan with no lag but I don't have $10,000 and two weeks to burn driving to southern california and back for pickup and calibration. >PC CRTs Would be happy with one of those big epic sony monitors but they're around $1000 last I checked, seems most of the deals are gone. Would be worth it at around that price but they don't do 15khz signals. >Plasma I've heard various good things about these, but don't know much about them. They rose to prominence then faded away at a time when I wasn't in the market for a new TV. These are fixel-pixel displays right? Are they actually true 1280x720? Are there any other scaling autists here? Please Respond.

>>846 I find it interesting that you can't find PC CRTs online, was thinking these were more common because I bought a LG F900P for €5 from someone on a German site similar to craigslist few years ago. These are really nice and, if they support 96kHz horizontal scanning frequency(common), you could use them at 1366x768 at 120Hz.

>850 I've got a 4:3 PC CRT. The main issue is that it's 4:3 and therefore doesn't display 16:9 content very well. The main reason I don't use it very much is that I've already got a nice multiformat 20" PVM that outdoes it on 480p (4:3) content. The PC CRT I have is some top-of-the-line Mitsubishi Diamondtron with similar max stated specs (1536p) but the focus isn't great any more and the phosphors seem tired and uncalibrated. I'm really kicking myself because I had a really great CRT from with moderate resolution but great colors from my childhood but I got rid of it like 2 years before I got back into CRTs. It was some Viewsonic that I think topped out at 768p or so but it had some sort of "Viewsonic SuperBright" or "VIVID" or something button on the front that would make everything pop and look really nice. So it's really the 16:9 that I'm looking for since my PVM already does letterboxed 720p. Widescreen PC CRTs are pretty rare and expensive as far as I know because most people and brands shifted over to 16:9 and flat TFTs at the same time. The only two widescreen PC CRTs I can think of are the thicc SGI monitor that carmack used and the sony FW900s. The annoying thing is that sony FW900s used to be somewhat available on craigslist for cheap around 8-10 years ago but are now rare and expensive. And on the top end of things, I have a nice VA gaming monitor at ~1 frame added lag that can do [email protected] and a projector that will do [email protected] or [email protected] (1080p native resolution so the 720 is extra blurry). So I've already got some displays that cover the high-frame-rates. So I have 480p @ 4:3 covered pretty well, and 1080p @16:9 but there's still a hole where I don't have any way to make 720p content look good. I suppose I also have a hole for 854x480p content but basically all of those games have a good working 4:3 480p that is the default option, since widescreens were rare and expensive for a while. The annoying part is about halfway through the PS3/XB360 system life many games stopped providing options for 4:3 - if you launch Forza 4 at a [email protected]:3 resolution it will just letterbox the 16:9 view and waste a bunch of screen area that leaves you squinting for your turns. At this point I am declaring this a display technology general thread. Before I got the projector I was looking into that one frankenstein custom setup that one display engineer makes that can do 4k/120, 1080p/240, 540p/480, but decided I'd rather have field-of-view instead. Here's the link: https://blurbusters.com/4k-120hz-with-bonus-240hz-and-480hz-modes/
>>846 thrift stores right now sometimes have 20"-22" 16:9 LCDs. they are probably 1080p though. you probably wont find a 720p LCD because it will have to be so small to make the pixel density acceptable for computer use cases (1-3 feet from monitor). at this point you may as well just use a 1080p LCD and center the image in it. (lots can do this, in case you didn't know. an example off the top of my head the 24" BenQ XL2420T). i cant remember if 720p LCD computer monitors even ever existed. there are lots of 720p TVs, but in my limited experience they are pure ass. input lag as usual with LCD TVs, and all kinds of weird issues with handling different modlines. >1366x768 i think only laptops (and apparently TVs) tend to have this. CRT will of course support it and is the best anyway. 720p isn't that bad on a 22" CRT (22" viewable). i think at that resolution, the beam focus will be good enough so you wont have any blurriness on a good CRT
correct. I have some 1280x1024 LCDs, 17" and 19". The 19" are unusable because the pixels are too big.
>>1435 I run my 19-inch 5:4 LCD at 640x480. If it could sync down to 320x240, I probably use that so I don't have to scale anything whatsoever. But scaling 2x is fine here, even though my hardware is a slow 32-bit ARM SBC and I don't even use the GPU at all.

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.
