Recycling Hardware Comrade 09/29/2020 (Tue) 20:02:46 No. 5042 [Reply]
Boomer family left me hundreds of blank floppies. (You know how Boomers love to collect things they don't use, which invariably become obsolete and become e-waste; they left thousands of blank CDs, DVDs, a zip-drive and about 6 old laptops and a few ancient desktops too. Because they refused to give anything away when they upgraded their stuff.) Any ideas for what I can do with the floppies?
>>5042 if there something importing on it you can try to back them up or try to smelt them, or glue them together to form cube or pencil holder or what ever post pics of what you made
If they still work and you don't want them sell em on eBay or gumtree or whatever Retro enthusiasts still use that shit
You could use them to backup anything important you want to last.
>Floppies Those are not good for backup, and the typical storage amount isn't much for today's applications anyways. >CDs, DVDs These could be decent media for backup, but it depends. Sometimes the data layer can be degraded, if it isn't stored properly or utilizing materials that last long.
If there are any rare, important programs on it, and they aren't already on the Archive, upload them.

WINDOWS XP SOURCE CODE GOT LEAKED
Indeed, OP. I am excited. I figure some one is going to pick this up and restore the windows xp project. We could see the rebirth of, frankly, a very nice and stable operating system. I think it will be a cool thing to witness.
The only people happy about this are nostalgic retards too dumb for Linux like >>5016 and hackers hoping to find exploits that haven't been patched yet (unlikely). I for one hope this helps the Wine project, but they probably won't touch this in fear of lawsuits. Thank you copyright law!

Bypassing Twitters' Phone Number Registration Comrade 04/24/2020 (Fri) 13:18:50 No. 1371 [Reply]
Anyone know of a reliable way to get a fake phone number for when social media accounts force it upon you? I keep trying those 'receive SMS' websites but all the numbers are already used by the time I get to them. Also, you don't need to remind me how they all spy on you, I know, I just need this to conduct business directly with clients, nothing more.

you don't have to have a phone number, just email them twice that your phone number doesn't work and they'll unlock your account
>>1371 Have you been locked? Are you a furry artist or something?
>>1401 Twitter will just randomly lock your account at times.

Let's talk VPNs Comrade 01/27/2020 (Mon) 15:36:01 No. 119 [Reply] [Last]
I was using riseup.net as a VPN, but, now cloudflair (The upstream provider for the site) is blocking it. Furthermore, it's come to my attention that riseup boofed their canary after the FBI requested server logs. They are glowin the darks, for real, and confirmed. What VPN would you suggest anon? What VPN, if any, do you use. I was thinking of routing all my traffic over tor, but, currently the site still blocks tor traffic. Help me out guys, I feel naked, thanks.

>>4900 Would like to echo the same problems. Can't we have a temp ban on tor posting after a raid or something? Or at the very least make tor posting without pics/files always okay. Then make photos a captcha thing? What's the worst that could happen if you allow tor text posting? I mean if frequent posting became an issue put a cooldown on the threads so that they can only get posted to every 10 seconds or something. This gives jannies enough time to see if there is a problem. Making tor posting so annoying is definitely an mistep imo for an obscure leftist chan. I've also thought about this >>4646. No pol-tard wishing to raid is going to know that these boards are less protected. Anyways I think we should all agree here that text-only tor posting should be unhindered.
>>4900 >For me "block bypass" works 99% of the time. Good for you, but what about posting pics? It's also probably only because Cloudflare doesn't have the resources to block all Tor nodes (yet), but they can block all proxies on proxy lists even if there's a delay between them appearing on said lists and them getting blocked as "known spammer" IP's. Obviously most of them haven't been used for spam on this site, but they're blocked on every site that uses Cloudflare. These are the proxy sites I know of, whose proxies are all blocked within a day or two in the rare case where one works at first: https://www.sslproxies.org https://proxy-list.org http://www.proxylisty.com http://www.freeproxylists.net It's good if the block bypass works for Tor, but especially on a site like this it's pretty fucked that anonymity must be compromised at all. 8chan used Cloudflare but didn't implement Cloudflare's spam blocks (except after raids), at least when I still posted there. I just tried as a test to post on 8kun with a proxy and a VPN and it works, too. If a hangout for far-right white supremacist terrorists can do that, why can't a mostly reasonable left-wing site?
>>4904 I totally agree about imageposting, that's something that frustrates me too, although sometimes it still works if you're lucky. I've even been thinking of using Whonix+VPN setup just to bypass that, but it's not worth the trouble. >It's good if the block bypass works for Tor, but especially on a site like this it's pretty fucked that anonymity must be compromised at all. In what way is anonymity any more compromised when using "block bypass"? Mods can see that your posts come from the same exit node, it's all IP-based AFAIK. Nothing stops your from creating a new circuit or restarting your Tor Browser session.
>>4905 >it's not worth the trouble Ideally there wouldn't be any trouble at all in the first place... >In what way is anonymity any more compromised when using "block bypass"? That's not what I was referring to. I meant blocking proxies and VPN's is fucked up since that compromises anonymity. It's not really this site's fault but rather Cloudflare's spam blocking, but I think having Cloudflare's spam blocking on a site like this is pretty fucked up to begin with. I mentioned 8chan and now 8kun not having those, when its users are constantly advocating for violence based on race, gender, etc... so why does a far more reasonable site like this need those kinds of anti-spam measures? If the block bypass worked with all proxies, VPN's and Tor nodes, then that'd be great, but it doesn't. It's good if it usually works with Tor, and for me the consequences would most likely be only a fine in the worst case so I don't need a proxy like I said and which is how I'm posting here right now, but I assume >>4635 for example is referring to more serious consequences. How can the proletariat of the world unite if uniting is made hardest for those who need it the most?
So I've literally just tried over fifty proxies today and none of them worked even after doing the "block bypass" captcha. All still gave the exact same error message: >Your IP was recognized as a known spammer. Cloudflare has really rammed up those anti-proxy "defences", it seems. Good to see people on /gulag/ are complaining about it too, but will that actually accomplish anything?

>>4984 same question, just want to know if someone managed to fix the broken bunkerchan rss feeds
The connections themselves are only as secure as your connection setup. It's your job to use a vpn or set up tor for all your traffic, if you feel the need to do something like that for youtube feeds and streams. Since this only handles feeds, and watching or downloading the streams themselves is done with another program, presumably you already have your preferred security measures set up for that other program, so route this one through the same setup. For adding extra fluff to the request headers to hide in the crowd you can use GetFeed.get_headers. The default request looks like this: GET /feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=... HTTP/1.1 Host: www.youtube.com User-Agent: ... Accept-Encoding: gzip Connection: close and the equivalent for invidio instances.
Bongino is in the process of moving to Rumble (.com) because YT's SJW tendancies are disheartening, and eventually will necessitate the move. But Rumble's /c/<user> page is, no surprise, nothing like YT's channel feed. And I can't code my way out of a box. Any chance of QuiteRSS updating to interpret Rumble's feeds?
>>4993 Hmm. There's this http createfeed.fivefilters.org/index.php?url=https%3A%2F%2Frumble.com%2Fc%2FBongino&in_id_or_class=video-item--a&max=5&order=document But it can't, for example, tell what the video is called, nor will it play/show pictures internal to Qrss but choosing the <no title> to be opened externally brings up the latest video. Doesn't at this time show any of the other videos in the channel though; not with those settings.

Gentoo Comrade 08/18/2020 (Tue) 14:48:56 No. 4206 [Reply]
Let's have a general for discussion about the most based OS there ever was. What builds are you using? Use flags? Are you on a Stacking or tiling windows manager? Lay it all down. Talk about optimization and help out more, less experienced, gentoo users.
25 posts and 3 images omitted.
>>4632 It wasn't intended to be a rhetorical question. Why might someone do Gentoo over Linux From Scratch?
>>4630 Linux from scratch is the dumbest most boring thing one could do. It's litterally a gentoo installation where instead of using portage you go to the page of all the various components and projects and manually download them and compile them. Maybe it made sense before gentoo was a thing but I really don't see the point now, you learn nothing over a stage 3 installation
>>4637 Gentoo actually has some uses, it can be an excellent base for a specialized distro: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Distributions_based_on_Gentoo LFS on the other hand is just a hobby project whose only goal is building the system to learn about linux, and not actually using it. It's like a school project.
>>4637 LFS is actually unmaintainable as a computer that you would actually use because just keeping the packages up to date would take all of your free time to download, compile and debug. LFS is something you do out of curiosity in a VM, and then wipe the VM image afterwards. It doesn't exist to create a thing that serves a useful purpose.

>>4309 I'm scared of going to prison. Even though I know the chances are slim that I would get caught it was still the fear of it holding me back.
>>4331 A) Know what they can use to detect that you're in their systems B) Know what they can use to link it back to you From these two points you narrow down the chance of being caught. You could hack an old machine, for example, since reconnaissance is the most important part of hacking, and you got access to it all. In case you get caught they wouldn't think it was an insider. But be safe, if you don't master what you are doing, you'll be caught.
>>4331 How do we persuade and/or help you, anon?
>>4331 If you prepare the rootkit beforehand and put it in some kind of simple tool (like an addon for a text editor or something dumb) and then release it anonymously in public, you get plausible deniability for it. So when they ask you "hey, our data got hacked and you unlocked the door when it happened" you can say you just compiled this cool github thing that would've helped your workflow. You might not even get fired for it then, since this shit happens all the time anyways.
