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)

A retard in desperate need of help.

I have two questions, /g/. Pidgin is as confuzzling as fuck. do i look like i know what host and port to connect to? i just what tor/privacy socks5 encryption backed up by sasl authentication and ssl use for gods sake! Also, any onion url archives you reccomend? one where you can just put in the name of a website and the onion url comes up? I'm tired of pecking around fuckfuckgo just so i can use ahmia or some shit.

Richard Stallman resigned

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.

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...

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.

how do i post on 4chan wilst using tor?

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?
