ActiveState used to build a nice Perl but the latest is missing packages that ppm needs to run. So I tried out their slick custom build tool. Not so slick: 4 days, only half done. inb4 Win: Gotta run engineering design software that only runs on Win. :-(
You can always use the cygwin version, or even build perl yourself from the upstream source. Then just use cpan for modules.

Well, after 5 days, it failed to make-install the PPM, so yeah, I guess I'll be taking advice above and installing Cygwin at some point. For now, and maybe indefinitely, I'll stick with Perl 5.18. ActiveState Perl was very nice while it lasted. Roughly a decade for me.
>>662 I remember some distro called strawberry perl or some shit like that. Maybe that still lives?
>>665 Apparently so: https://learn.perl.org/installing/windows.html There it is, right on perl.org, and it looks easy. Maybe it's killing ActivePerl.

This technology will grow back your foreskin.
4 posts omitted.
>>235 How do you grow back a foreskin? That's like having someone's face burned off and then grafting more onto it and being able to feel your face.
>>630 It's not an exact replacement, but it's as good as it get currently... The main function of the foreskin is the act as a gasket and as lubricant during copulation. By stretching the skin out, you restore these two functions. You also undo the keratinization caused by the exposure of the glans. So by restoring, you are undoing a lot of damage. Of course an all natural foreskin is better than this (mostly because it contains specialized nerve endings) but restoring is the best option for men who want to reclaim their sexual pleasure... it's not perfect, but it's a substitute until foregen is finished with their product.
>>635 It's pretty fucked up that religous nutjobs are able to mutilate baby's genetals and get away with it.
>>651 I completely agree. It's barbaric and violates the basic human right of bodily autonomy.

Good Holiday Tech Deals Onideus 12/02/2019 (Mon) 23:34:31 No. 636 [Reply] [Last]
Sooo... what did y'all get this Black Friday and Cyber Monday? I got two of these ripe little jobbies... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013HNYV8I/ Dump tier 4 TB drives for only $72 bucks, pretty sweet deal, especially considering they're not white label, refurbished crap. I've bought a lot of these drives before so I know the quality is pretty good overall. Don't ever get those cheap Toshiba drives though, they're consistently crappy. Real high failure rates and such. I also got a yearly subscription VPN from Ghost... or rather my mom got it for me. My mom kind of "red pilled" herself over the past year after watching various YouTubers and since they're always doing sponsored ads for VPNs she became convinced that everyone ~has~ to have one.
I got nothing.

>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"

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:

>>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/

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.
