>>516 qutebrowser is fucking amazing. https://qutebrowser.org/ Dont know about the security on it tho. But it comes with greasemonkey so you can add javascript scripts (You can adblock then and install 4chanx and oniichan). >>530 Surf lacks alot of useful features imo. Like downloading files can be a hassle sometimes. An example of this is that i use surf as my whatsapp web client. But downloading files from the whatsappweb page isnt possible. But for browsing proper websites that dont give a fuck about javascript bloat and stupid features its awesome.

>>831 If you want to lower your power consumption, consider older ARM-based systems like those built around Cortex-A53 and Cortex-A7 processors. The advantage here is that not only they use less power than x86 laptops, but they're also totally invulnerable to the many x86 hardware bugs. These two ARM processors are also immune to all Meltdown and Spectre class bugs, because they don't do speculative execution. Granted that makes them slower than x86 or faster/newer ARM processors, but they're good enough for my needs. Added bonus: they don't even need a fan at all. The Raspberry Pi 3 and older boards use those processors, but there are better quality boards like for example those by Olimex. I have pic and run it off their 5V/1A power supply, and it does what I need it to. I use it as a headless server basically (over Ethernet), so you would need a bigger PS if you're going to connect LCD screen or whatnot. And my main computer is an A20 board (Cubietruck) which itself has a 5V/3A PS because I actually have a mechanical HDD attached to its SATA connector. This is only a dual-core 32-bit ARM Cortex-A7 @ 1 GHz though, so quite a bit slower than my other computer, but it still performs adequately for my needs. And an e-ink display would be a good choice for saving power compared to other screens. They've been coming down in price in the past few years, but I'm still using old 5:4 LCD VGA screens for now.
>>835 > immune to all Meltdown and Spectre class bugs >Intel & AMD installed botnet but ARM did not. All is botnet. The game was rigged from the start. From preliminary research I found there is no all-in-one solution for a mini solar generator. You need Solar panel + regulator + battery. Are there any all-in-one solutions out there that anons know of and I missed? Enough to run a laptop, or mini-stove, or soldering station post-apocalypse??
>>844 Nevermind, you're a dumbass. I'm not gonna help you, even though I have experience using solar panels and deep-cycle batteries in RVs.
I'm OP. >844 is not me. also that guy is retarded, they do make all-in-one systems they're just way above the price point and marketed to upper-class outdoors snobs or businesses where they need it to just werk. I think "GoalZero" makes some integrated, expensive stuff. eink screen would be sweet. I've been waiting... and waiting... and waiting... for a reasonably cheap 9-13+ inch packaged screen to come out for reasonably cheap but it doesn't seem to have happened yet. I have a couple little 1-3 inch screens in my parts bin I've been meaning to play with for a while. I have a few PINE and other ARM SBC boards, but nothing from Olimex. but it seems to me that it's hard to beat a laptop integrated form factor for this use case. I'm not sure any monitor manufacturers are as laser-focused on power consumption as the bare panels that go into laptops. What are your thoughts on the Pinebook and Pinebook Pro? Do you have a recommendation on a relatively cheap regulator? Like I said, just something that is a little better than the cheapo harbor freight crap I bought.
>>864 >I'm OP. >844 is not me. also that guy is retarded >>845 >you're a dumbass So I'm a dumbass and retard because I created a custom solution since the last time I posted? OK whatever faggots. >I'm not gonna help you, even though I have experience using solar panels and deep-cycle batteries in RVs. As we are jerking off our egos, I'll confess, I have experience in rocket design and didn't need your help. P.S. If you didn't know about the backdoors in ARM as well as the commonly known ones in INTEL and AMD - the fuck I care. Enjoy your ignorance.

Got most of the parts for free: Storage is 3x2tb hdds i3 6th gen Gtx750 What should I do with it? Installed Plex and nextcloud on it got tired pretty quickly and barely used it Just too lazy always uploading the files to the server to play them with Plex No motivation to fiddle around with server admin stuff Should I somehow use it as second pc for "productive" stuff so that I won't have all the distractions I would normally have? Money won't be worth anything soon so selling is not really worth it Really don't know what to do with it Also got a thinkpad I have no use for I really don't know what to do with that stuff I feel like giving all that stuff away for free to someone who really needs it although the cyberpunk notion would be to be surrounded by lots of technology I think there is some truth in all that minimalism stuff

What kind of thinkpad is that? From the latch I notice it is probably an older one with a 16:10 screen ratio. t. thinkpad man
>>861 it's a 410 with shitty tn screen
(212.79 KB 850x574 dios-mio.jpg)
>>863 ah, bummer. the x200 with ccfl backlights have a compatible AFFS (VA-like) screen that's a drop-in replacement. You can also put the same panel into the x200 LED and x201 (all LED) but then it's kind of a pain as you have to replace a cable and a backlight inverter as well which ends up being a more involved swap. and x220 and up have IPS screens as drop in replacements I was never able to find any sort of good swap for a t420 I had so I ended up giving it away as a gift a few years ago. There's that one alienware panel that's supposedly """good tn""" that you still need some hackjob cable for, then semi-recently I think they finally made some other mods but I think they still involve soldering directly to the dock displayport output on the mobo. But that sounded like a hassle and I think I'd already given mine away at that point. Kind of a shame as I liked some other stuff about the laptop but that screen made it painful to use. Nice to see a fellow TN-hater on here. I couldn't believe the amount of bad advice on /4/g about buying a gaming monitor or old thinkpad that fails to note the extremely critical fact that's it's fuccing TN garbage.

>>865 yep, I was fucking retarded when I bought it two years ago but it doesn't matter since I have never used it anyways
>>865 what's that image supposed to prove? that TNs have inversion? the image doesn't look right in ANY of those screens. VA viewing angles are trash IPS in my short experience (i only have like 5 of them) doesn't seem very good either (of course way better than VA and double way better than TN) like last time I looked at my IPS screens they actually still had viewing angle problems. also that orange glow bullshit in the LCD world all one can do is look for the best pixel response IPS with either high refresh rate or backlight strobes. but the refresh rate is limited (like you can only get reliably maybe 75Hz or 120Hz before getting a defective product - as in the pixel response goes to shit) get a CRT laptop im srs tho. LCDs have everyone bluepilled on thinking its normal to have to bend your neck once in a while to be able to see something, and to stop scrolling to read text

Idea for a political game Anonymous 02/20/2020 (Thu) 05:53:20 ID:7afcb4 No. 810 [Reply] [Last]
it's a civilization game where you take charge of a small group of people at the beginning of time and try to raise it to a great civilization. the difference here is that you choose specific policies for you civilization, and the results of any set of policies are based upon how exactly how those sets of policies worked in the past. eventually, the player community will determine which policies are the best to use. everything is designed to be a 1:1 depiction of reality, as close as possible, even the way you take control of you initial population is also true to the way the first human societies were formed. there is also the distribution of genes among your people and the lifeforms around you, all of which are affected by your decisions as well, along with the environment, and each individual's genes determines their traits just as they would in real life. Genetic data is largely hidden from you until you have the tech to see it, and actually ask for that information to be determined for you. speaking of which, you can ask those under you to gather information, you also get updates on the visible affects of your policies on the people, though some of the less visible stuff must be actively looked into. you cannot directly choose the advancement of technology or culture like you do in sid mier's, nor do you directly instruct people to build structures (if you want a wall, you choose policies concerning border security, and a wall follows from that), people who are not politicians are the ones who do that, you are a political leader, not a scientist, engineer, architect, or artist, your power is strictly political in nature, only the ability of a real human leadership is given to you, though this means that you do not need to conduct research to discover political policies, you simply have all of them available to you from the beginning. on that note, you can choose from any political policy that has ever existed or from any political policy that had ever been proposed (the effects of these will need to be extrapolated from what is already known, or what is most likely).

>>813 I'm working on something similar. Think like how (((they))) put propaganda in everything except this game is going to all but name (((them)))
here is how katawa shoujo was made: - Idea guy posts image and states basic premise - Other anons think it's a good idea and start recruiting assigning roles, forming a small dev team "four leaf studios" - team begins creating game and posting updates, eventually releases demo and starts collecting fund via donations - more than enough is gathered to finish the project and so they do a bit extra notice how the idea guy doesn't get told to do it all by himself, notice how the idea guy is not even involved in the project past the first step. this is how a jewish movie is made: - jew producers find a barebones concept for a film from pitches - they hire a team of writers (not the idea guys) to flesh it out into a plot/script - they recruit a team of directors, actors, etc. (probably some of them will be jews) and production starts - any of the above may be altered in the course of production, but usually the core premise of the project remains the same (not always, however)

>>810 I just wish some anons out there would be dedicated enough to remaster Ethnic Cleansing. The game itself is trash but it is Pierce approved and deserves a remake.

>>819 Sounds like a less shit verison of Nation States. You would have to limit the amount of options to pick from though as you would need to caculate the outcome for all them. I could see that working though, having a drop-down for Currency Backing for instance (Labour Backed Fiat, Gold, Silver, Unbacked) and then the money disturbtion (Private Bond Aggragate /State through public works). I could see that working. >>826 I was thinking of remaking it in Brutal Doom some time ago, gave up because of texture issues but it may be duable with the "final release". It honestly would fit better as a Brutal Doom wad. It would probally look better tbh, Ethnic Cleansing was pain on the eyeballs and the fucking shadows? It's like you're playing as the El Paso shooter but the dork left his glasses at home.

Hello, this is not a shill post. So I decided to create my own chan in python as a hobby (using the flask library) and this is what I have come up with so far. Just give me feedbacks here in this thread or there. Currently you can only upload jpeg , jpg , png , gif below the size of 4mb. https://rikchan.pythonanywhere.com

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)

>>291 Wut?! Uh... using thumbnails will SIGNIFICANTLY reduce bandwidth and increase loading speeds... also browser resizing is usually shit level bicubic or bilinear... or if you're using IE I think they're still stuck back in nearest neighbor resizing. I like using PHP with the Lanczos algorithm, in conjunction with cached thumbnails. You can create "perfect liquid" websites like this one I made back in the early 2Ks... http://mimkrys.epizy.com/qausi.html (you can also click on the window and drag it around) Resize your browser to any size you like and the entire site will recode itself on the fly... http://mimkrys.epizy.com/internals.js God Level coding! :D ...not very practical, but fun for "proof of concept" stuff.
