Wow, nice rack! I would suggest finding a router that you could install openWRT onto. The router will be fully configurable, just find an extension (or a few) that blocks the ip or shrinks packets to the ip.

I'm thinking to just keep using Windows 7.

Also what problems did Windows 7 had always?

I never seem to had a Virus/Worm/Trojan/Ransomware for almost more than 8 years.

The only reason why I'm not switching is because of VSTs. I use alot of them & have collections of it.

Install LMMS then get gud with ZynAddSubFx. If you're making traditional (i.e. not electronic) I've heard Ardour is pretty good.

LMMS is just a tad nicer on Windows because it has native VST support instead of running it through WINE.

So I'm still using almost 10 years old android phone with 3.2" screen and I love its small size, jack, sdcard, reliatively cheap, removable batt, fits into everything. Periodically I go to "local" online shop to see what's new of this form-factor and there is close to 0. Everything below 5" is noname or retarded or outdated, everything out of stock and 5" is already too huge for me, and recently I've looked at 6" and it is ridiculously huge...

What's up with this shit? I did not subscribe to this shit, I have nothing to buy...

What will YOU do when the Chinese Social Score comes to your nation?

Don't think for one minute that it won't. Generation Z has been raised to rate everything, from the products they buy, to the sellers they buy from, the restaurants they visit, their teachers, and even the doctors they visit. They rate their uber driver and the uber driver rates them. You have a large generation very used to the concept of rating.

The social media phenomenon has inculcated a narcissistic driven behavioural reinforcement system, by which people are nudged into group pleasing actions in return for high scores. Whether the motivation is purely rooted in vanity, or for monetary award corresponding to subscriber counts, it becomes clear that people are intimately vested in a gamification existence.

This combination of ratings and points is the underbelly for a "Social Score" system that is actually being realized in China today. Fail a test, litter on the street, say something 'politically incorrect', or perhaps staying out too late would result in demerits. Naturally, governments will issue rewards to nudge people into 'correct' behaviour. Those with low scores will be restricted from many services ranging from communications to travel; perhaps dissidents won't even have any freedom of movement! I'm sure you can imagine how such a scheme could also be tied into Universal Income.

(((They))) have primed the younger generation to accept this system, and you're kidding yourself if you think it will be met with but a handful of resistors. The question is then, how do we prevent this dystopian nightmare from emerging before it is too late?

NEET Pill: how to go gentle into that dark night.

the described neet pill destroys every possibillity of a legacy and does not uphold the necessities of life for value to exist, making it something that destroys value.

The neet pill, if it truely means complete inaction, is the bastard fusion of nihilism, hedonism and communism.

Taking it easy in this way denies the future existance of value and entices entropy, making it an act against life and therefor value. It is a parasitic form that may not be furthered.

the so called endgame of life is an illusion.

only by creation of something that may last is life, value and imortality achived.

Taking it easy is valid, but taking from life itself is invalid.

>The Maze ransomware gang is claiming on its data leak website to have stolen files from South Korean company LG Electronics. “Soon you’ll be able to know how the LG company have lost the source code of its projects for one very big telecommunications company, working worldwide,” the group says on its website.

Maze is known to not only encrypt organizations’ files and disrupt their systems, but also publish stolen sensitive information unless they pay a ransom.

BleepingComputer reported that among the screenshots posted on the Maze website as proof of an attack was an image of a split archive for a .KDZ file, which is the format for official stock firmware code from LG.

>No, it requires loading an entire OS, such as firefox or chrome to render properly.

It works with terminal browsers iirc.

>If that's all browsers did then most issues would be solved.

Yeah. But they have perfected it. People just need to take a step back and stop piling shit on top of it.

The single best way to improve any browser is to REMOVE THE JAVASCRIPT. Client side scripting has no business being in a browser, ever.

So a typical web browser today surpassed an OS such as Win98 in complexity? When will it surpass Win2k?

They should go back to being the sane alternative to Chrome. As it stands today, the default installation is a privacy nightmare.

How do you get into developing decentralized/distributed software? Where do you find good resources for learning how it all works and how to make things that use such mechanics?

And I mean making it from scratch, not plugging in lib_buggy_bloated_distributed_magic_shittery_x86 and throwing shit at it. How do you understand the way decentralized systems work to the point where you can develop the general field with your own implementations of such systems and attempt to invent new things?

OR you could just fucking document your shit properly so other people can read and understand it instead of having to spend weeks researching it and reverse engineering 17 layers of technologies.

I want to develop services and communication platforms that don't rely on a third party server authority who can just shut it down for any arbitrary reason at any time. You can share your files in IPFS or whatever all day but it'll never be designed to do the things I want it to do.

Me again. I definitely believe in weaning ourselves off third party authorities but I see decentralized services as just half the equation. You can make all the decentralized services you want. Without mass adoption by a sizable user base they might as well not exist.

I've decided to focus my efforts on building a decentralized user base instead. That means an informal network connected together via multiple forms of contact. They exist across multiple platforms and they adopt whichever tools and services happen to suit their purposes at any given time. It's manual, human-powered and old-school. I think that forming individual connections is a lost art and that it holds potential that a lot of people haven't considered.

You don't need to forge the perfect decentralized platform, with all the features you want, if you have an informal network of people who can adopt whichever services happen to suit their purposes and then discard them after they outlive their usefulness. What you loose in automation you gain in flexibility.

Come and pay me a visit if the general concept appeals to you.

Nigger the very reason nobody adopts them is because they're always such a fucking pain in the ass to set up. Torrents and Tor are popular because with both you can just download a thing (any torrent client and Tor browser respectively) and start using it without having to read an instruction manual first.

This anon gets it.

Devs of this sort of software have to understand that the average dipshit is often less tech-literate than even a member of the US congress with an attention span of a gold fish. If your shit doesn't work out of the box with that oft-forgotten concept known as "sane defaults" then nobody is really going to use it outside of about 20 mega-autists who all hate one another. Without a large quantity of users decentralization attempts are doomed to fail. RTFM is not a valid response because most people who actually work for a living in a job that doesn't involve them sitting on their asses waiting for code to compile don't have the time or will-power to do so or perhaps are just too lazy. Either way, you need something like tor-browser-bundle but for your given platform, and more importantly you need a normie-friendly manual akin to a "quick-start" guide to complement your technical one, though even regardless again it must normally work without any configuration out of the box. That's why nothing but tor has actually caught on even despite sometimes being technically superior to it. Once your thing has caught on more people will be willing to rtfm a little bit but until then assume nobody will ever read your autistic manual that is the size of war and peace that can generally be boiled down to "start the program. Go to this address in your browser." outside of configuration details, nor will they ever read your equally-long and even harder to comprehend man-pages.

My advice is to bundle a version of palemoon with all necessary configuration akin to how tor-browser-bundle does - with scripts to make sure everything works properly at least 99% of the time, and to provide a trouble-shooting guide for that 1% when it doesn't or needs to work differently on your site.

To follow up on this, if you do go with palemoon make sure you follow this mitigation guide on securing it: https://spyware.neocities.org/guides/palemoon.html

We all know China is fast growing as another global menace. This unfortunately makes the prospect of owning a Lenovo branded ThinkPad unsustainable in the near future.

Do you think Toughbooks and other rugged laptops can take over the UNIX-like market in absence of a brand like ThinkPad?

And then I remembered I overclocked the display which caused the artifacts. Thank fuck, the Quadro in the M70 is extremely failure prone.

Nice, the VAIO I bought off eBay is coming in the mail. Going to pilfer that C2E X9000 from it for my M4300 and put in the T7700 from the M4300.

It also ended up having GSkill DDR2 800 SODIMMs with CL5 timings, nice. Swapped the X9000 into my M4300 and now I have two (semi-)working laptops.
