Self Study EE: a request Comrade 08/30/2020 (Sun) 08:22:44 No. 4518 [Reply]
Can you self study the equivalent of a degree in electrical engineering from khan academy, coursera, edx, youtube, free pdfs from libgen? Any EE's here want to comment on this? This is just for knowledge not to be accredited or certified or whatever

Is this good? Comrade 09/15/2020 (Tue) 19:43:10 No. 4743 [Reply]
I wanted to know if this tablet was good, and i didnt know where to ask. https://consumer.huawei.com/en/tablets/matepad-pro-5g/ I just want something to read theory on comfortably while also having a good screen to watch movies and stuff on.
Specs look quite good and once you get past the dirt cheap tier Chinese engineering is very solid and tends to get you a lot of bang for your buck
>>4744 I watched one video and there was a lot of shit being flung at it, i wasnt sure if it was just apple-tards being apple-tards or what. Thanks for answering my guy

https://brave.com Is it a viable Firefox alternative for privacy or just another adware scam?
10 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>4399 But what if I am not a massive faggot?
No. Privacy goes beyond just gimmick anti-privacy tools that only make you stand out more - precisely by blocking things in a way that makes you unique. You should instead aim to stand out as little as possible. Tor Browser is best in this because it is specifically restricted in a way that website can't detect every little detail about your OS and browser, it tries to make every user appear as the same person. Not to mention that hiding your IP is the bare minimum (but far from enough).
>>4643 I just wish more sites didn't do deliberate degredation or denial of service to people using tor. I generally take the RMS approach of refusing to use such services but it makes so many things a pain.
>>4650 Some major websites who do that have alternative front-ends that can function also as proxies, e.g. invidious, nitter, bibliogram. In other cases, if I really want to access the website, I use such primitive methods as free web proxies. They work well enough even for posting comments under blog posts or news articles. However most websites don't necessarily even know they're blocking a chunk of their users or audience. That's because they use 3rd party tools that by default block Tor.
>>4386 Ungoogled Chromium or bust. Brave is botnet disguised as a "privacy-oriented" browser.

How to track someone on the internet Њардеџ 09/03/2020 (Thu) 23:08:43 No. 4610 [Reply]
Hello comrades, here in Serbia there are some right wingers who on social media attack leftist, dox them and over all make our lives worse, and all that on fake accounts. That is why I would like to know how to track them on the internet and dox back. Can you suggest some useful tutorials for that or books?

Does filling basins up with freshwater count as /tech/? I mean it's all there, engineering, math, science, construction, hydroelectricity, irrigation...

Big basin in turkey
>>4294 Yeah and it's full of plants and animals that already thrive there. Maybe don't obliterate them with a geoengineering project whose consequences you can't fully grasp?
>>3974 Your math is off. 110,000 m3/d is not 110 km3/d. It's only 110 ML, which is enough to grow 22 ha of vegetables or 10 ha of rice for a season.

Can mods move this thread to either >>>/hobby/ or >>>/edu/, depending on where it fits best? I think it would be better off on one of them.

I need to recover deleted data from a hard drive that was formatted twice. Is it possible?
12 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>4572 That is usually due to file system corruption or a crash before sync. Is your hard drive failing? Post the output of the following command (use sudo if not root): # smartctl -a /dev/[drivename]
>>4573 Is there an equivalent for flash drives? I checked SMART on the HDD recently and it was fine. I'll check again tonight. I think that the corruption might have happened during a data transfer to a flash drive. Sorry that I wasn't clearer earlier, I'm kind of in a rush.
>>4575 Depends on the flash drive, but not usually. A failed flash drive usually produces read or write errors, so you can try running badblocks on it after the data is off.
Also, test your RAM.
>>4572 test with foremost and see the result.

Oh God oh fuck hopping phone images is even better than hopping distros, its like distro hopping but with an actually important device How the fuck do I clean myself from google services? It seems insurmountable, I installed clean lineage with nanodroid so I could spoof the playstore to get some non fdroid apps but I can't get off of gmail and my proper youtube account, it seems insurmountable setting everything back up on non google shit
Slowly deglowing myself,google is almost removed,fb messenger is a bit of a sticking point with my tech illiterate friends though

Is anyone interested in using a .onion irc server if I spin one up in a few days?
>>4233 90% of the time I'm a windows user. Is it moderately easy to convince zirc to connect to an .onion site? Or, does the tor project have an IRC client compiled for windows? The short answer is no, because I don't like people, and I don't want to spend my free time watching children play. But I would be curious to better understand the TOR software from a practical, hands-on perspective.
>>4233 Why not? The difficult part is keeping it alive...
>>4235 Not super up on windows but a regular Clint should work. Was considering it to be a more technical project orientated space. >>4236 How so?
>>4235 All you need is an IRC client that supports socks5 proxies, then you configure it to use Tor. The proxy address of Tor Browser is

Dear tech, I've been writing and curating the publication New Multitude this year which is hosted on https://medium.com/new-multitude The original aim was to curate effort posts from leftypol etc. I've been wanting to do a soft relaunch by moving the site to a proper domain with its own website. And then start to seek out high quality Bunkerchan users to do essays for the site. Actually I know nothing about web design or anything like that sooo. I'm asking here if anyone would like to either collaborate with me as a webmaster/editor or would be able to do a straight forward commission where I pay you to set up the website for me. Anyone out there interested? if so message me on twitter. https://twitter.com/newmultitude
