I've been trying to find some more information on the original systems operating in the Soviet Union. Especially those earlier systems that showed some promise and interesting features. I've been looking specifically at the BESM-6 due to the ample documentation available. The most interesting features to me are the system of modes, and bit packing, both of which seem very odd but interesting to me, oh also it's RISC which is nice. The CPU was also developed under the name Elbrus into the late 80's which is unique, and was reasonably competitive at the time. The Elbrus-3 which was a completely new ISA with novel VLIW capabilities was also competitive.

Would any of you happen to have any information on the MIR «Машина для Инженерных Расчётов» machines? I'm struggling to find any information on them but they sound fascinating especially concerning "a hardware implementation of a high-level programming language capable of symbolic manipulations" which reminds me of the exceptional Scheme-48. Also it seems to be immensely capable for its size. Thanks in advance!

you dindn't know that Richard Stallman was ALMOST communist??
Oh wow, communists don't believe in universal political programs.
We want the age of consent to be 5 in one country and 18 in another. You got it from this free and rational talk show host right here folx.
Muh god has to be the basis of any moral or ethical standard otherwise it's not a universal standard.

What a joke.

The Social Media Question Comrade 08/19/2019 (Mon) 15:11:52 No. 620 [Reply]
What is to be done about social media?

"But how has this model of progress, in which history culminates in the glorious invention of iPhones and apps, become so uncontested?
And, if we attend closely, isn’t there a desperate quality to all this cheerleading?
Addicts always rationalise their compulsions, but the desperation here belongs to capital itself, which has thrown everything at the great digital swindle. Capital might still swagger like some data cowboy, but iPhones plus Victorian values can only be a steampunk throwback.
The return to centuries’ old forms of exploitation is obfuscated by the distracting urgencies of digital communication."

What's next for social media?
How can it get any more cancerous?
Replace with decentralized, FOSS, psuedonymous alternative, preferably run as a workers' co-op or something.
There mere existence of decentralized, FOSS, pseudonymous alternatives will not do a single thing to overthrow the corporate domination of the internet.
But foss hackers and codemonkeys will.

New tool album Comrade 08/30/2019 (Fri) 05:43:45 No. 149 [Reply]
New tool album is out.
Thoughts? Sounds good to me.
But, it feels like their swan song. They seem to agree. Anyone else listening?

In some respects it really sounds like they are pushing their boundaries in other it sounds very cookie cutter (not a bad thing for tool)

It's boring as fuck. Sounds like the band had some riffs left over from 10K days and used some Kraftwerk techniques to stretch them into 10 minute long songs. Record company wanted a longer album so they stuck in some 3 minute "songs" consisting of random noises. Nothing in particular is outright bad, but it's just so painfully mediocre, especially coming form a band that was known for being cutting edge(y).
Yeah chocolate chip trip was pretty fucking disappointing. There will be faggots that will fawn over this album and unscrupulously praise it for years to come though,
These bottom dead threads are perfect for random shit that helps boost PPH a little.

Maybe you've seen this one on 8chan's /tech/: https://wiby.me/ Hobby thing by one guy with a very small index. Doesn't even crawl the web, but relies on people submitting pages. The kind of site he likes is noncommercial without javascript and cookieshit.
Qant has a retarded name and picture.
Practically unusable and the lack of crawlers make it even more so. I'll stick with Startpage.

I took the Startpage pill the other day after finding out DDG may be less than trustworthy.
Try setting your Startpage theme to Night, I find it really comfy.
Gibiru is another one with no logs. They are run entirely by donations so no ads and no "anonymous" data mining.

I don't know if I am the only person here who knows what lokinet is, but, basically lokinet is an encryption service provider that acts like tor; tor in the sense that it encrypts your packets with multi-layer encryption and bounces them around through a series of relays.

What makes it different is that it also acts like i2p in the sense that it also encrypts the encrypted packets in a secure SSL tunnel while bouncing them around making it truly anonymous.

It's also a decentralized network of relays and nodes of which anyone can spring one up and become a part of and on top of that you can use it as your default DNS provider meaning you can use this network as a vpn with out having to go through shady capitalistic datamines claiming to protect your data.

The down side is it's small right now and not a lot of people use it. It's fast though.

Furthermore, I can't seem to get the relays you need when you try to use lokinet as a VPN to work. I spoke with the staff on their IRC network and they told me the relays are down for those specifically.

I don't know if they ever got them up.

Does anyone else fuck around with lokinet on /tech/?

Here's their IRC:

No you CAN connect to the outernet which is why it's so amazing, because, it also uses secure tunneling on top of onion routing; all ontop of a decentralized network.

I just can't get the fucking thing to work as my fucking VPN so I can stop sending all my data to a random database.

It's good shit though, anon.
well let us know how it goes
it goes like ass. it wont play nice with my DNS for some fucking reason.

So last night they where apparently doing maintenance on the network. It's back up and running now and giving me no issues.

Follow this to get it set up. It's easy:

Next I will be attempting to route my traffic through one of their exit nodes:

Apperently, routing through an exit node is still broken and in an "experemental" phase.

Setting up zeronet for 08chan is a fucking herculean task of epic proportion.
How the fuck has anyone gotten this piece of shit to fucking function?

I finally managed to figure out in order to post you need to get an ID from zeroID but after I did that it wouldn't post while I was using tor. So I backed my torrc file uninstalled (cause it automatically runs on linux apparently) re-compile zeronet and then I can't make another fucking ID cause it's attached to my IP address. Like what the fuck? So I wait again, and attempt to make a post, after getting my cert, with out tor on and then i'm getting the stupid "Your post is Xbytes > 0" Error.

AFTER SETTING IT UP FOR TOR WHICH WAS ALSO A HUGE PAIN IN THE ASS. I had to find out the hard way that the apt package, as usual, is fucked.

Ergo, had to compile it.

Literally how in the absolute fuck do you get this fucker to function?
