Japan doesn't give a fuck about free software and their DIY scene is reserved for people with a lot of money.

Privacy on the internet in an inherently retarded and infeasible concept. For most people, privacy does not matter, and it is a good thing. Since its very inception the internet and its communication protocols were never designed with privacy in mind, because humans don't live a private lifestyle. Do you schizos wrap yourself in tinfoil clothing and hide every inch of your skin and use a voice changer when talking to other people IRL? Do you tunnel every single conversation one on one so no other person can overhear you?

You are already monitored on a daily basis, and humans have been in general for thousands of years now, and it is a general way of information exchange and communication among people. Not everyone can live a hermit lifestyle encrypting every bit of traffic that leaves their basement.

The upcoming integration of cloud based services and the IoT among machines, along with increased automation will help more people who don't care about retarded non issues like muh data mining and those super fucking great cooming sites you searched for the other month. Maybe you neckbeards should try leaving your house more often and realize that technology exists to serve social needs and thus information IS required in the process. Using busted up, old, Thinkpads and then cutting off hardware wiring does not make you any more special or 'secure'. Secure from what? Who exactly are you trying to hide from? Motherfucker I can guarantee that most of these self proclaimed 'privacy enthusiasts' are friendless losers, so nobody would care either way if anything happened to you.

The average human lifespan is around 80 years now, all that time that could be spent being open and social with people, living a carefree life, and instead you spend it on some vague concept of being 'le based privacy chad hackerman', someone who is so non-existent, even online, that the people of your own forums and imageboards won't recognize you.

You won't look back at all those years wasted on ricing up your machines and encrypting your TOR mails for gazillionth time, just in case of that tiny off chance that a glowie decided to read your smut collection that particular day. Though you might remember the day you had a good laugh with your friends on dickcord or other 'privacy nightmares'.

Unless you're an Illegalist, in which case please carry on.

I don’t really care about data tracking by itself, but how it’s used. at least if China takes my data it will be contributed to something useful like AI instead of “marketing business analytics” or whatever faggot bullshit research field small dicked ex-jocks are coming up with these days.


>at least if China takes my data it will be contributed to something useful like AI instead of “marketing business analytics”
lmao this is your brain on dengism

I'd rather keep 48*x. 44.1 doesn't divide from standard time bases, higher multiples less so. It was born of a terrible compromise between fatuous Beethoven and an easy to use form factor. Also, production routinely occurs at 48*x, usually 96 or 192. The downmix to 44.1*x will introduce artifacts that didn't need to be introduced.

If some teen can hear in that range well, I say more power to them.


>If some teen can hear in that range well
Can anyone?

Not really. They seem to be about 5dB more sensitive at high frequencies than their parents' cohort. It's hard to find any research outside the nominal 20-20k band of human hearing.


>Also, production routinely occurs at 48*x, usually 96 or 192.
I remember reading this was only the case for movies etc.? And not for music, which has been produced at 44.1*x for years but is being released in 96+ like in movies for hi-res because higher numbers = better marketing.

Walmart-exclusive router and others sold on Amazon & eBay contain hidden backdoors to control devices

Instead of asking for libre hardware, burgers are going to demand that production is brought back to the US.


>implying their hardwares don't have backdoors.

Seeing the Internet of SHIT being more popular than ever makes me think people are never going to be "redpilled" about mainstream technology.

Also, sorry for posting twitter screencaps.


Sometimes relatives tell me they bought a smart vacuum robot or whatever the fuck and I have to put effort into not showing my power level. Not that they're going to listen to me even though they know I've got a degree in this shit.


it's almost as if burgers want their corporate daddies to get it in raw

So this is the best modern science can do? Video game consoles?


I'm really starting to think that porky's running low on steam.

Ha, steam. Get it, because steam engine.

Does anyone know anything about Thermal Goggles/Scopes? I heard right wingers talking about wanting to use rural camouflage against us.


sure, if you have like 15k to burn. very few people even own NVG's and thermals are substantially more expensive - I wouldn't worry about it. moreover, a space blanket lined with some insulating fabric can assist with hiding. the taliban just use blankets when they are in a hurry


I have no idea what exists on the lower end of the scale, including older technologies. Where I'm at, a modern chip putting out 50hz with auto non-uniformity correction is going run you ~$7000 while goggles are about double or more (collimation and bridging gets expensive). I am in Canada, but you don't save much in America either.
I actually got a chance to demo PVS-31's with clip-on thermals - great stuff, but very front heavy and bulky. Whiplash injuries with advent of helment-mounted NVG's has always been a problem and it's going to get worse unless more effort is put into reducing size/weight. Iirc Act in Black of Luxembourg makes some of the lightest, durable dual-tube NVG's today. The very high-end shit from L3 uses a small, integrated germanium lens which solves this, but access is limited to super sekrit government work.
As for the space blanket, you actually don't need much space at all - just enough insulative layers, the Mylar and some kind of adhesive (Velcro) to prevent the layers from separating.

I recently gotten myself on some books on how to do Java Script again. I came here today to ask what is the programming languages that are worth learning.

Because I think that people still use Java Script but not as nearly as much as other programs. I want to do this on my off time as I look for a job again. That way I can just have something useful other than my knowledge of historic events and wanting to preserve the artifacts.

why is that surprising? given the amount it’s used even outside of web clients with nodejs it makes sense. yeah it’s a half-assed language but so are most other big ones besides C.


It doesn't matter what language you start with.


dont believe this man, probably a LIBTARD




also the setup necessary to get javascript running is minimal.
to get C compiling? lol. good luck.

What is the best e-reader? Is the Kindle paperwhite even worth mentioning?

Ok if you are interested there are 2 websites where Onyx sells their Boox, but this one is the official one: https://shop.boox.com/

The other one is Russian and they take longer to get the firmware updates.

Also before you buy check out this video review of it to see if it’s up your alley.


Personally I paid 600$ for it when it came out and love it really. It’s worth it based on how many books I have on there already. The battery life could use some improvement as if you browse the internet on it, it will last only 2-3 days. Eink uses power when the screen changes so for normal reading it lasts like 2-3 weeks.




>Is the Kindle paperwhite even worth mentioning?
You're all retarded. You can jailbreak the Paperwhite and run your own software, including Koreader.


Anyone had any luck trying to remove the wifi chip from a kindle?


Battery lasts super long. I barely charge mine. It's easily 24 hours of reading straight
