so i'm motivated to planing to create a archive for threads and websites. thread and web writings that are important enough, have quality, and or can be used to counter western media and history naratives.

the archive i want to create for the threads is different from things like internet archive or things like that because i want to actually save all the file that is uploaded unlike regular archive where not every file and many that are uploaded in the thread were not saved in the archive.

if i can i want to make a website for this but i do not have any experience about creating website and coding nor can i do it. i also have special-ed mental that make me unable to learn coding like normal people so its hard.

my main plan is to use httrack and use every file format list from wikipedia and other websites, then copy that list to httrack file format selection thing

i want help from every people here, so if you can please send something

No. I just used an in-built Kate function for moving all strings into one line, that's it.


wait so, wizard, you telling me that it is complete ? no deleting thing ?


yes ?


i will take it as a yes

I'll start with a few examples:

>Proprietary Software can be secure

This is a slight of hand. In theory proprietary Software can of course be secure, but in praxis there is no way for you to find out which proprietary software is or isn't secure. So from the perspective of the user proprietary software can't be considered secure because there's no reliable way to tell.

>Proprietary Software is harder to hack because the source-code isn't open

This is a security by obscurity fallacy, that for some inexplicable reason is still in circulation. Exploitable software bugs are usually found by examining the behavior of executable binaries not the source code.

>Open source is secure

Not by default, there is no automatic security-magic in publishing code on git-hub/lab. However open-sourcing code means that it can be subjected to broad public scrutiny and hence it becomes possible for the users to know which software is or isn't secure.

>Security and privacy are not the same

This fallacy is widely parroted even by the security community. You, the human is a part of your computer security, without privacy, attackers can potentially learn enough about you to figure out psychological hacks to compromise your computer security by tricking you.

>Unbreakable cryptography

This is usually wrong in praxis because it doesn't factor in that most people will give up their cypher-key after the "low-tech-biological-deciphering-algorithm" broke their pinky-finger. Cryptography can only be considered secure if the encrypted-data-vault is obfuscated as random bits on a storage medium so that the existence of the encrypted data can be denied.

>Am i missing something ?
Yes. It was done not with a smartphone but a stationary PC.


>stationary PC.
So a desktop box ?

Assuming the user hasn't plugged in a mic or a low impedance headphone, what are you using as microphone ?

Those cheapy speaker boxes that people usually use, have classD amps, while, efficient, low cost with reasonable audio fidelity, they have a terribly high noise-floor. I doubt that you can get usable audio capture from that.
A class-D amplifier or switching amplifier is an electronic amplifier in which the amplifying devices (usually MOSFETs) operate as electronic switches, and not as linear gain devices as in other amplifiers. They operate by rapidly switching back and forth between the supply rails, using pulse-width modulation and pulse-density modulation to produce a pulse train output.

That leaves the motherboard-beeper, which usually is just a piezo connected to a 5v IO pin that goes high-low-high-low square-wave at 500Hz. Can you get audio capture from that ?


You need to ascend anon, for your home wifi you need to disable the password, then set up some utility to clear up/reset the IP connection logs daily, and now you have plausible deniability on any download/connection that you make from your house

So far as phones and etc, ofc it is all fucked, but you can set up your home connection to be quite resilient against your internet provider snooping on you



You can just desolder the microphones/speakers (they have more than one), Snowden has got some youtube videos showing how it is done. Then if you want to have phonecalls you just plug in a set of earbuds and talk through there

You need then to research your phone model to see if you can disable the GPS and other things. But at these points the weakpoint stops being you, and it becomes wherever other retard that still uses whatsapp you are working with to setup the coup detat/assassination/thievery etc


>You can just desolder the microphones/speakers (they have more than one), Snowden has got some youtube videos showing how it is done. Then if you want to have phonecalls you just plug in a set of earbuds and talk through there
Interesting stuff

>to setup the coup detat/assassination/thievery etc

Lol imagine announcing a coup d'état by using phones, rather than couriers. Even technically super sophisticated spy agencies don't trust their communication technology for the sensitive parts of their operations.

New attack on privacy is taking on a hole new dimension.

TLTW:The US congress has proposed a law that would require rc-drone pilots to broadcast the location of their rc-drone and their own location.

Never mind the drone stuff, this would be a precedent of mandating a tracking beacon that broadcasts your location. Such a mandate so far only exists for convicted criminals that have to wear a tracking ankle-monitor.

I think this is so egregious, that surveillance has to be re-categorized as a form of attack or assault. We ought to grant people a right to self-defense to preserve their privacy, analogous to the right to self defense against physical attacks. People should be granted the right to use very assertive measures to protect their privacy. (Going beyond the current passive defense of privacy)

Obviously privacy means the absence of surveillance


Having a transponder that squawks on a certain code is already standard in aviation, this seems like it's extending it to drones. I'm not that worried tbh.


I'm not opposed to a requirement of transponders for commercial drones. If those delivery drones ever become viable, there will probably arise a need for dedicated drone airspace corridors and possibly even some kind of flight-control system that directs what flight routes drones can take to prevent collisions.

However none of that is really relevant here. This law has a requirement for hobby drone pilots to not only have a drone-transponder, but in addition they also have to broad-cast the location of their person. This is a mandate for a personal tracking device.

Outside of a commercial setting, neither your personal stuff nor your person should be subjected to any kind of surveillance. And any attempt of subverting personal privacy should be frustrated with effective means.

So the EU wants to introduce software regulations (Cyber Resilience Act) that is probably going to harm FOSS pretty badly.

The politically stated goal is improving software security. However it's not likely going to achieve this, they are introducing costly security certification. Which to me appears more like a scheme to pay somebody to take responsibility, rather than actually improving engineering quality. It might also have a psychological factor like a secular version of asking a priest to bless your technology. And it kinda looks like a anti-competitive regulatory burden that favors large firms over smaller ones. It is unclear to me whether or not there is malicious intent behind this or not.

This process might make sense for large corporate software monopoly dinosaurs that still do proprietary release dumps. This legislation will probably give an unfair advantage to those business models. The irony here is of course that proprietary software lacks the openness that would allow for public code auditing, which is a vital part of modern software security. Proprietary trust me bro security/obscurity is low quality and a bit anachronistic at this point. The net-effect of favoring this could be decreased software security.

If you listen to the FOSS advocates they want to have exemptions for open-source so the C.R.A. would not undermine FOSS projects. This is reasonable because at least it wouldn't make anything worse. The security praxis of infrastructure relevant FOSS project has improved a lot in recent years and is comparably decent atm.

What would actually improve software security in the FOSS world is more code audits, you could have an EU wide census about which software is commercially deployed and then prioritize funding security-bug-bounty programs that specifically target these. This scheme is effective because the cyber-espionage-agencies do exactly that for their weaponized software exploit acquisitions. I don't understand why they wouldn't copy what already works.

I think that if they don't fix this it will lead to walling FOSS out of the EU, with the resulting brain-drain from FOSS projects looking for regulatory environments that aren't hostile.

This definitely is a blow to the organizational capabilities of FOSS since the EU explicitly states that it will be affected. I don't think that development could realistically go underground at this current scale either. There will likely be a mixed bag of compliant larger devs and noncompliant smaller ones but it will be fuckey for sure if it happens.


It kinda depends on what is motivating this. If they really just want better IT security and it's not their goal to suffocate FOSS, they'll likely go back and fix the broken aspects of this, and it'll be temporary damage.

But if this is a monopoly move to kill off smaller competitors we have to start teaching FOSS companies how to bully back. I kinda thought that proprietary and FOSS software could co-exist now, it looked like the proprietarians had given up their war against FOSS, if that turns out to be false, it's better to just preserve FOSS and get rid of the predators that threaten it.

>I don't think that development could realistically go underground at this current scale either.

Yeah it's kinda hard to have a secret organization that wants to be fully transparent to the wider public.

>This definitely is a blow to the organizational capabilities of FOSS

I guess FOSS would turn into a programmers guild, where only guild members get source access and maintain the FOSS principles internally but not externally. At least that way organization would be maintained.

>There will likely be a mixed bag of compliant larger devs and noncompliant smaller ones but it will be fuckey for sure if it happens.

One thing to consider is that China has been super effective at poaching talent from Taiwan ever since the US began it's crackdown on microchips. There's even a Chinese graphics card company that was formed by a bunch of former NVIDIA employees that got screwed over in the chip-purge. The Chinese basically created a special economic zone that pretty much allowed these people to import the Taiwanese legal framework with long term legal guarantees.

If this is indeed the inquisition preparing to purge FOSS, it might be possible to survive in a Chinese special economic zone until shit goes back to normal. It would be kinda ironic if the Very American concept of freedom that are underpinning FOSS ideals end up getting preserved by the "muhauthoritarians".

FOSS will give Tesla a run for its money. It works with many newish (2018 onwards) cars. The hardware costs $1k versus $10k+ for Tesla autopilot.

I think someone's already done it. There is certainly an effort to bring open source ECUs to the market for many engines, and this being LS-powered, I'm sure one exists already. I would like to see an electric version. In fact, I'm very interested in electric buggies, because I would like to take one for night hunts and shoots. Right now I'm really just heavily considering an electric bike or motorcycle.


>Right now I'm really just heavily considering an electric bike or motorcycle.
At the moment you're best bet might be to go for an electric bicycle, you can get relatively open technology, for motors, controller circuits and battery packs.

Louis Rossmann the youtube repair-guy said the stuff from this shop is open and reasonable quality

here's a forum for ebikes


Thanks, anon. That might actually be a better choice, considering I don't have to go and get the license. I always like the stuff by Rossman. That manlet knows what's up.


Consider sharing how it went in case you decide to build an electric bicycle


Will do. The area I'm working in certainly lends itself to an offroad electric bike, and it might be easier to carry to and from.

I made a wiki about unretarding technology and society. What do you think? https://www.tastyfish.cz/lrs/main.html


seems interesting
can you fix dead links like for example this one https://www.tastyfish.cz/lrs/countercomplex.html i kinda wanted know what countercomplex means


Dead links are articles I haven't written yet, they should appear as red. For countercomplex see http://countercomplex.blogspot.com/.


I read the section about licenses , and i still don't understand why you consider publicdomain CC0 licenses to be better than copy-left and FOSS licenses.

Wasn't FOSS and copy-left created specifically because it was possible to modify public domain works and then close off the modified version.

what's a "management decision"?


Counterpoint: computers could be made less biased and impartial, ensuring that any decision taken at the managerial level, even if incorrect, could be justified as reasonable.

I found a pretty wild website that seems to be all about open source and trash recycling, it's pretty funny: http://www.southplatte.net/
It also has a github with some very out there code:


And an ebook? https://raw.githubusercontent.com/LafeLabs/pibrary/main/geometronmagic/main-large.pdf

I thought it was interesting, thought I would highlight it.

Redhat is going closed source for Redhat enterprise linux (RHEL).

Jeff Geerling the guru for Ansible server deploy scripts is already jumping ship

Behind the scenes this is probably something that resulted from IBM buying Redhat. They're probably going to wreck the RHEL ecosystem with this move. It seems like a short-term cash-grab.

I don't quite understand the legal stuff how they can close off gpl software. It's probably not a big deal given that there are many other enterprise Linux distros, but it's still kinda fucked up to burn such a big project.

I don't think they care. Red Hat has big contracts with DOD.

So apparently Open Suse is going to fork RHEL,

<SUSE declared it would invest more than $10 million toward the development and maintenance of a RHEL-compatible distribution available to all without restrictions.



but susa has its own enterprise linux that is not RHEL-compatible.. so what's the fucking point?


tho I'm all for susa rolling in. Their Open Build System is awesome


>what's the point?
ibm/redhat has alienated a sizeable chunck of their customer base with their recent moves and most of the free code contributors. SUSE is capitalizing on that.

>susa has its own enterprise linux

A RHEL-compatible is complementary to their own offering.

If you have a company network that runs on rhel, switching over to suse enterprise linux is a lot of effort, but if Suse can offer you a RHEL-compatible, it's basically zero effort for you to switch over to their services.
