Biometrics are not practical, if somebody steals a keycard, you replace the keycard, if somebody steals your palm-print, you can't chop off your hand and grow a new one with a different palm print. Does capitalism have a anti-tool bias ? Fast-food does away with cutlery, smartphones do away with input devices like pens or keyboards, bio-metrics do away with keys. Is it really so bad if you need a helper tool for using an object ? I get doing away with hazardous cans that need a can-opener, but keys ?
Applying for a job or even working requires smartphones frequently, so it is basically required.
Why bother with eye, palm or face when your walking posture is enough?

Should I stick with green or amber?
allebei lelijk oetz
>>5284 green imo
amber looks cool and the warm color is better for the eye, blue light is bad for your eyes.
Amber is the obviously superior choice. It's much easier on the eyes. It's almost like it's making love to me.
Ok, so, if this answers your question. Fallout New Vegas -> default amber theme. Fallout 3 -> default Green Theme. Fallout New Vegas >>> Fallout 3. Which means. Amber theme >>> Green Theme

functional programming Comrade 09/30/2020 (Wed) 13:31:38 No. 5054 [Reply]
Why haven't you taken the fp pill?
I already do it for scientific simulation programming, but I really don't see the point in using it for anything else.
I like OCaml and Scheme
>>5054 I use clojure. Most of /tech/ knows at least one functional language anon.
Why yes, I have taken the Susspill.
I like Haskell but I don't find it very much use for the things I do.

https://github.com/Mishiranu/Dashchan https://github.com/maksrago/Dashchan-Extensions-ACF Anybody using this to post here? I'm fucking scared because until recently this project was looking over. No updates or anything then randomly out of nowhere got update notification and against my best judgement updated the app. It's got a new look and options now. But then got several more updates over the next few weeks. Almost one everyday. I don't know where to check or see why there are these updates coming from out of the blue. Bros please tell me theres not some hidden malware happening behind the scenes of this new UI changes

How to set up linux for tor usage. Comrade 08/06/2019 (Tue) 23:50:13 No. 2280 [Reply] [Last]
I posted this in another thread but I think it deserves its own thread.

I've been seeing a lot of people saying that installing tor is super hard and difficult, and, even if you use windows it's not that hard. All you have to do is install the tor browser and go into the browser bundle files and run the executable for tor, or, just use the browser bundle.

Like it's not hard at all.

But, being the pros (and dirty commies that we are) we don't use fucking bourgeois Microsoft.

So, I've set up a super simple and comprehensive guide to installing and using tor like a pro on Linux.

This is why we use Linux.


Downloading tor:

ctrl+alt+t: Open terminal:

Sudo apt install tor
sudo service tor start


Downloading and setting up privoxy.
sudo apt install privoxy

Edit the config file:

vim /etc/privoxy/config

(If you don't have vim sudo apt install vim)

add in text at the bottom:
(vim insert mode: press I)

forward-socks5 .onion 9050

(press escape)

Type :wq (write quite)

Done, ammo loaded cannons ready to fire.


Set up firefox to use tor:

about:preferences: Network settings, Use custom proxy

(Privoxy runs on port 8118) 8118
Check off "Use this proxy for all protocols"


Takes literally 5 seconds and you don't have to inconvenience yourself by downloading a whole brand new fucking browser ONLY for the simple task of bouncing around encrypted packets through a bunch of proxies.

You also don't have to live with the hellscape that is Microsoft and the billions of exploits and bugs in and written for it. (Not to mention back doors.)

And before anyone starts bitching; Setting up firefox for privacy isn't that difficult.

Basically turn off all telemetry and geo location, referer headers (but you will need http refer headers for 8chan) and some other shit, Guide here:


But honestly none of that even matters unless you are a windows user or a pedophile and let's hope you aren't either one of those.

Have a nice day.

>>4983 make an onion site on a vps that doesnt take any info and is operated out of 14 eyes. Keep a backup site in case u do get shut down by the company i guess. keep your database encrypted until called upon obviously if anything sensitive. Only use tor to connect to the server when configuring it. Should keep u safe, these r the basics, look into it. grugq has some case studies in some like deceased 2013 blog about cyber criminals n shit, one case study about how this pedo ring basically got away by just using yknow, standard opsec but just sticking to it well and not giving out personal info, using proxies for everything, not using VPNs for security, and shit. So nah anti-gov shit stays up unless infiltrated, cp stays up -> gets killed -> comes back, and drugs always stay up lol but who do u think really profits off that, govs r the og cartels. Anyways yeah, whatever u do just have good basic opsec and u should be fine, tor isnt horribly broken, just use it how you are told to use it by people who know their shit. i.e. dont do shit on tor u do on clearnet, dont change ur browser, close sessions frequently, dont have it full screen, ideally use whonix or sandboxing or smth, whatever. If you're super noided there's always yknow, doing it out of public wifi also, so even if its deanonymized its not tied to u good luck anon
The recent update for the browser bundle standardizes the screen size for the full screen browser window, so that leak is probably not that big of a problem now. Also if using public WiFi to be anonymous, consider cloning the MAC address to something else than the one that could be traced if hotspot operators log that and can correlate the traveling of the device.
>>5045 >The recent update for the browser bundle standardizes the screen size for the full screen browser window, so that leak is probably not that big of a problem now. No, the recent update (10.0) completely fucks up resolution fingerprint resistance, because the rounding is buggy. 1) it doesn't round to multiples of 100 but is slightly off. 2) the window size is different between initial window and subsequent new windows. Secondly, the canvas fingerprint resistence doesn't work anymore. Thirdly, what you're referring to (a technique called "letterboxing") has already been part of the 9.5 version. See for yourself: https://arkenfox.github.io/TZP/tzp.html https://www.amiunique.org/
god you people are retarded. You can't figure out how to install a fucking program through the package manager? Kill yourselves.
