why are you trying to shut him down.

Of course it will be a lot shittier than Google Earth but it would still be neat.

If I actually go through with this, it would be a good idea for people to identify me in the threads I make. Besides, the name is just anonymous with "sat" as a prefix.

Even one satellite may prove to be enough. If it is geostationary, then it is fine, but the way I want it, it needs to be moving or it will crash into earth. I could have it moving around the earth so I can get great pictures of antarctica and the north pole which tend to be shit on google earth for some reason.

I could put other devices onto it as well, and I am going to have multiple hard drives to see how they fare in space.

I am triggered by your narcissism.
You need at least three for triangulation, the hard drives will waste power that you don't have on the satlilite.
If it was me I would at least make 24 small satellites in geostationary orbit. They will run on seL4 and transmit information to one centeral server to store the images.

>hard drives
Radiation might not cause bit flips down here but that's only because earth's magnetosphere shields us, on a satellite they are common enough that every thing NASA (and most likely other agencies) sends up is radiation hardened. Which in the context of CPUs means everything is done twice since radiation shielding isn't feasible.
>great pictures
Google Earth's pictures of Antarctica and the North Pole are shit because less than 1% of the population lives there. Your best option for satellite imagery is probably NASA's High-res imagery. (Bing and Mapbox apparently take "creative liberties" when it comes to the northern ice cap.)

some friend recommend me today to install some shit to reformat my usb now I'm kinda paranoid bout viruses right now,
I have no sleep in days
And i think this is a good option to do this

To format your "Ãusb", use dd:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdx

change sdx to your interface.
If you are paranoid about your system being infected, you should reinstall your system and reflash your BIOS...
But since you don't know how to use dd to format a disk, you probably have many other security problems that doesn't include your friend's software. Encrypt your disk if you want more security/privacy.

Also, he could dig sideways and then start carving up.
The point is: you won't untangle yourself when all you do is adding wrapping yourself with more rope.

>he could dig sideways and then start carving up.
If they can use hand-operated shovel, the wall is not solid enough dig sideways. Plus square-head doesn't even have a helmet, so it is extremely risky.

What I take from the graphics is that you have to be extremely dumb to get dig a hole and actively create a ladder problem like this.

You are still missing the point.
If you could read what I said before: the issue is people doubling down on complexity instead of moving away from it on a complexity issue.

I agree, the ladder solution is stupid. They don't even have any wood down there. Doubling down and building stairs is best solution.

From searx.me:

>The searx.me server is reaching its limits.
>Searx is no commercial enterprise, it lacks all the resources available to the services you normally visit, we don't have neither a marketing department, nor do we have datacenters, nor devops teams.

So, I thought about setting up our own (imageboard users, mainly endchan and lainchan) instance. If you guys help me find a openbsd server (VPS or dedicated) I could do it. The server would use obsd httpd(8), have no logs, have a hidden service and (maybe) a clearnet link (with TLS provided by Let's Encrypt). No javascript or cookies too, and no google crawling.
Anyone here interested? If you know any good host (outside of the US, Canada, China, Russia and UK) that has the last stable branch of openbsd running and where I can have root without limitation, at a good price (<$30) we could plan it.

ps. no, I don't want to use any other system. If you want to do it by yourself, go ahead.

Wikileaks Release CIA Scribbles 28 April, 2017 Anonymous 07/09/2017 (Sun) 23:35:32 [Preview] No. 10052 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Scribbles 28 April, 2017

Today, April 28th 2017, WikiLeaks publishes the documentation and source code for CIA's "Scribbles" project, a document-watermarking preprocessing system to embed "Web beacon"-style tags into documents that are likely to be copied by Insiders, Whistleblowers, Journalists or others. The released version (v1.0 RC1) is dated March, 1st 2016 and classified SECRET//ORCON/NOFORN until 2066.

Scribbles is intended for off-line preprocessing of Microsoft Office documents. For reasons of operational security the user guide demands that "[t]he Scribbles executable, parameter files, receipts and log files should not be installed on a target machine, nor left in a location where it might be collected by an adversary."

According to the documentation, "the Scribbles document watermarking tool has been successfully tested on [...] Microsoft Office 2013 (on Windows 8.1 x64), documents from Office versions 97-2016 (Office 95 documents will not work!) [and d]ocuments that are not be locked forms, encrypted, or password-protected". But this limitation to Microsoft Office documents seems to create problems: "If the targeted end-user opens them up in a different application, such as OpenOffice or LibreOffice, the watermark images and URLs may be visible to the end-user. For this reason, always make sure that the host names and URL components are logically consistent with the original content. If you are concerned that the targeted end-user may open these documents in a non-Microsoft Office application, please take some test documents and evaluate them in the likely application before deploying them."

Security researches and forensic experts will find more detailed information on how watermarks are applied to documents in the source code, which is included in this publication as a zipped archive.

If you are all hell bent on a hardware encrypted drive, I don't think I have anything useful to say. I don't understand why anyone would want one as most people face only one of two distinct threats, both of which suggest hardware encryption is a stupid waste of money. You are probably worried about one of:

a) Preventing a three letter agency snooping your Allah blessed plans for great Jihad. Commercial hardware can't be trusted in this situation, NSA is but a step along their production line. You're wasting dinars better spent on hashish and entertaining unclean western wimminz.

b) Some vague nuisance. You want to shield mummy from the true extent of you furry pr0n addiction? The next chimpout is but a street corner away from you? Use VeraCrypt and save up for that special NRA membership drive that comes with a complementary handgun.

Three questions.

1. Do you know how to backup?

2. Have you ever successfully and completely restored something from backup?

3. Do you have a CURRENT AND COMPLETE backup of ALL your data on a PHYSICALLY SEPARATE MEDIUM?
