at least he posted the original link. half the archive.is using fuckers just post a shortlink. Archive.is can even use long links like what >>7259 posted. But yeah they need to get rid of cuntflare (maybe switch to a real anti-ddos solution, and save half their money) so their service can actually be useful.

This isn't even a problem for most users since they already run everything as the same user, in which case we can just use WriteProcessMemory and CreateRemoteThread for the same functionality (or one of the million other ways to do the same thing). BTW this situation is no differeent than Linux or any other mainstream OS.

Firstly the article is completely retarded, so let's talk about the actual "disclosure" instead:

Well no, there are millions of ways to communicate with the rest of the OS and you cannot enumerate them all, and even if you did, it would mean your stupid Application Firewall gives obscure meaningless warnings (with a 99.999% false positive rate) for every possible action a program takes. This reminds me of Comodo's Application Firewall crap, which did exactly this.

The reason why we use 2 firewalls. Internal + external ( Linux )

Always online with an isolated, restricted guest network / access point.

Umm so this 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 is never my gateway.

First, get a radeon card with Graphics Core Next. The new AMDGPU drivers that replace the old proprietary drivers are fantastic.
Second, get a motherboard that supports overclocking from the bios/uefi.
Third, if you want wireless you need an atheros chip. Check out thinkpenguin.
Last, aim a little high on the PSU, I have heard linux drivers have higher power consumption on pcie devices.

Also, if you are using wine, check out gallium nine.

ffmpeg help Anonymous 06/17/2017 (Sat) 12:24:13 [Preview] No. 8561 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hey guys, with Adventure Time coming to an end I would like to create a web-dl complete torrent of all seasons.

I like what tinymp4 did here: https://thepiratebay.org/torrent/10387424/Adventure_Time_Complete_Season_1_2_3_4_5_720p_-_TinyMP4
These are the 720p episodes with the intro and outtro cut out.

What I want to do is maybe write a script or use bash tools to rename the episodes in a uniform way to cut out the extra stuff in file names, then use something like ffmpeg to cut the beginning and the end off each file but leave the rest as is.

Any ideas how I should go about this?


Anonymous 06/19/2017 (Mon) 01:17:09 [Preview] No. 8562 del
ffmpeg stuff isn't so hard.
You would probably need something like ffprobe to get the length of the episode

 flen=$( ffprobe -i "$filename" -show_entries format=duration -v quiet -of csv="p=0" ) 


Then just work out the start and stop times from that.

 ffmpeg -ss [start] -i in.mp4 -t [duration] 


I think a few episodes of that show had cold opens would need to work out what those are and give them special treatment.

Due to plot reasons or the cash cow/creative passion is now dry? Hell did an overarching plot ever develop for it to have a proper ending with character resolution plus closure and the like?

The original creator didn't fuck off, he stepped down to become one of the writers. Apparently he couldn't write under all the pressure. That said, season 5/6 which was the transition was a little bloated. However they have wrapped everything together in seasons 7, 8 & 9 quite nicely. I particularly liked Finns origin story in the "Islands" mini series which harks back to previous plot development surround Finns dad Martin.
The real problem it seems is that it became far more popular than any other Cartoon Network show. So they deliberately fucked the schedule for episodes to release new episodes as a surprise to force viewers to watch the channel. This negatively affected the ratings. To be fair though the show has had a rough end date since its' creation, because they chose a child actor to voice Finn, eventually he would out grow the role. Anyway, I am clearly a little biased since I like it so much I am making a complete archive of episodes but I think it's being killed off earlier than necessary. There was talk about a Warner Bros. film, maybe now it has ended they will finally make it. Any remaining plot holes can be filled then, but it's mostly complete.

>>8562
I know the intro and outtro are the same length every time , also the show stopped doing cold opens, so for the remaining seasons (6,7,8,9) that won't be a problem. This is a much better way of handling it than I was thinking to be honest, I was looking for a way to cut off the beginning then cut off the end forcing me to process each file twice.

Any ideas on renaming the files? Every file should have the "s01e01" indicator in its' name, if I could just cut out the rest, that would be ideal. I don't even need to keep the file extension, I can just add a ".mp4" in the ffmpeg output. I am looking this up, would it be sed to find the "s0" the cut everything an additional 4 characters after that and move the file to that new name?

No, the real cancer is Teen Titans GO!, not Cartoon Network's schedule. DC comics got CN by the balls with that show that is the epitome of Gen Z sterile canned humor. If that show just fucked off, everything would be more tolerable.

Could I follow youtube channels without having an account? I am thinking using RSS or similar.

I subscribe to 400+ channels on my current account so I cannot simply check each one for new videos.

Anyone tried something like this?


Anonymous 06/08/2017 (Thu) 06:29:33 [Preview] No. 8545 del
Hmm, I use newsbeuter, have a query feed (basically an entry which includes entries for multiple feeds) and I filter them by age and some certain keywords but jesus christ I don't have 400+ channels I barely have like 10 and probably 2 of them are dead. I don't know if there's any practical solution for your case.

Just using newsbeuter and putting all of them into a query feed and checking that query feed full screen from time to time to see if there's anything interesting might do it but I'm not familiar with the way youtube shows videos to users (I know they introduced some follow feature or some bullshit)

will do.
I think some feed readers just take the URI to a channel and it gets converted automagically.

>how could they find out if I got that bitcoin legal or not?

Depends on which end of the money flow you're being investigated from.

Example scenario #1: LEAs compromise a darknet market and trace payments for illegal goods/services to one of your public keys. They see subsequent transactions involving those public keys and a company that exchanges BTC->USD (or GBP or EUR or whatever). They get a warrant for information about the exchange from the exchange company. They then have information about your bank and deposits. They get a warrant for information from the bank. They now have a chain of transactions tied to you from sale of illegal goods/services through to your deposit in your name at the bank. If you tumble your bitcoins, theoretically, it's more difficult to make the connection from the public key that received BTC for illegal goods/services and the eventual conversion from BTC to fiat currency in your name.

Example scenario #2: You deposit at your bank an amount of money or in a pattern that raises red flags. LEA gets warrants from the bank and the depositing company (the BTC -> fiat exchange) and gets information about the BTC address involved in the transaction. They then try to tie the BTC address to receipt of BTC for the sale of illegal goods/services. If you're using a DNM that has its payment system set up properly, this should be really difficult. That's a form of tumbling in itself.

LEA ability to associate illegally acquired Bitcoins with you depends on 1) associating an illegal transaction with a given Bitcoin address, and 2) associating that Bitcoin address with you. Tumbling your Bitcoins attempts to make that difficult by obscuring the relationship between the Bitcoin address involved in an illegal transaction that the one that eventually is used to transfer Bitcoins to fiat currency in your name.

I'm so deep down the gentoo hole nothing else does it for me anymore aka if I were to install something easier I would just think "fuck it I might as well install windows and get vidya".
Gentoo satiates my autism, it really hits the spot. Also if you're going to be running gentoo I recommend funtoo on a desktop/workstation pc. On a workstation machine the debian kernel will save you a lot of hassle and getting the audio right out-of-the-box is cool for desktops as well (more importantly it's good for laptops). Getting your kernel config right is a long process but just save the .config and bob's your uncle.
