Whew, nice recovery! I'm familiar with the traditional use of sage stemming from Japanese imageboard culture. I'm also familiar with the concept of trying to rationalize an embarrassing gaffe by lying about your motivation or attributing misunderstanding to the other party.

What a low-stakes thing to come back and lie about several days later, though. You are truly a sad specimen.

In an discussion community what matters is not if you're more intelligence or how important you are. What matters is the discussion and the possible conclusions from it. Else, you just fall in an eristic dialectics (as Schopenhauer would say), as we are doing now, it seems.

Smartphone concept is fundamentally against privacy. If you want to use (or have to), go ahead. But don't expect much privacy from it.
Besides that, Purism has already many critics about their marketing stuff:

I can't find many details about the phone, but that may be because their site seems to require javascript.

I did notice this:

Does that mean it's VOIP only? No 3G or 4G LTE?

LynxChan 1.9 is about to enter beta and introduces a very important feature: JIT caching.

JIT caching is caching pages once they are requested, instead of caching when their content is changed.

This feature should allow for not only a significant reduced CPU usage but also for a more responsive experience for users.

Other from that, this version will also add a few features:
File search on media management
Maintenance images
Ability to restart the unix socket from a GUI
Subject editing
Board locking
Better global board moderation
SSL can be made mandatory
Mass bans directly from ips

I have a small instance running it over http://lynxhub.com and a list of chans running it can be found at http://lynxhub.com/lynxchan/res/285.html

LOL, I'm not OP, but my assessment about your mind being small is completely correct.

EME is exactly what every host provider would need to properly execute anything under the sun on a web browser. It only takes the right motivation to completely control an entire computer down to the firmware/UEFI. CCleaner/Avast malware is just one recent example of many more to come. It's your lack of imagination that I criticized, not that EME will not be used for totalitarian control by every conceivable potential.
Whether support or execution by major browsers is or isn't featured in their sample for EME inclusion should be discussed at the current state of affairs, but what are we going to do when every facet of society conforms to only requiring this client using EME be the one to communicate and work with

I mean, not too long ago everyone was required to install Flash, Java, Silverlight, Adobe reader, insert your pile of crap to submit X shit. Why do you assume companies will not attempt to control their consumers like governments already do?

If my words are too big for your little mind to comprehend:
How will you gain employment if your employer requires to use their specific EME browser to submit your application, so that they can submit their mandated W2 form on the mandated .gov site using the mandated browser with EME, so that you can afford to pay your ISP that requires their browser with EME to submit your down payment you received at your private bank that requires access with their browser having EME?

The ignorant ask "why", the intelligent ask "when?"

Call me when Mark Zuckerberg is president!

Not the person you are responding to, obv., but: The internet at large host many many types of traffics, protocols, networks, and NIC responses. However, the web, is a theoretical idea that we have yet to achieve. The thing we are using right now, this very moment is a HTTPd server we are submitting HTTP POST near Nevada that all of us have to connect to to be able to read what we posted to. HTTP is a subset of many many TCP/IP protocols ISPs deal with at large with cables and routers they have to maintain and pass packets around. The idea that TCP would have achieved some sort of web to locate resources anywhere in the planet has not yet been achieved, because what we have right now is hierarchy addressing of top domain queries to the remote IP address we connect to to post messages to. Are there alternatives to the HTTP "web"? Plenty. Do they affect the fact many browsers adopted a stupid standard to incorporate into their HTTPclients? No, not really. But now it's going to be many times more easier to inject whatever the fuck anyone wants into these vulnerable clients.

Your metaphor could be better defined but message received. To try and use your metaphor: The "cars" can only drive on the roads. I'm saying we become "cyclists" and get off the roads.

That said, the idea that we can keep our own little corner of the web clean, safe and free browser compliant (which I assume you are saying) is naive. For reasons stated here >>11213 the web and because of that in part the internet is now compromised as a safe platform. Even non web applications like IRC rely on domain name servers and the web to communicate the address to users. If the web does become hostile we can only hope it's at such a slow transition that we can easily adapt. Alternatively we can start discussing technologies now.

Now you're purposely being ignorant of both human behavior and progression. The cyclists expression here is using cURL or ed browser to "display" a httpd "site".

Banks, websites, governments, etc. could have been requiring DRM for years in order to access and interact with their content. Flash and Silverlight make DRM possible. EME has been implemented in various browsers for years, and in all major browsers since 2016. Every single site on the web could have required users to use DRM to access their content for years now.

Yet they haven't, and have no reason to do so for most content. Again, you do not understand what DRM is, apparently.

Were you freaking out about your bank potentially requiring DRM 7 years ago, even though they could have done so at any time? No. Because you have no fucking idea what you're talking about.

You're freaking out about it now, because you read about the W3C recommendation a couple days ago on reddit and now, all of a sudden, you think the sky's falling.

Creative Commons is not mandatory. Some projects are, though, so you can probably download them.

I receive this too. Since it's just to GET the website, a bad TLS will not make much difference, although I think that's self-signed or something... haven't tested.

I don't know if Blender Foundation will release something, but there's many other people submitting short movies. I for myself am thinking about a 'cyberpunk' short film, I just need the screenwriting...

>What transaction isn't? Are you talking about conning people out of some pocket money, (((anon)))?

You can't have any anonymity if you don't have any way to make anonymous exchanges. You can do anonymous exchange right now, with paper money. Paper money allow "black" market, markets out of any state control. For exemple, you buying something for you friend is anonymous, and is de facto in the "black market". It allows anyone to work without the need of any contract.
It's the most basic need. With every transaction being traceable, you're done. You're just done. If they decide to deny you the right to possess a bank account, then you'll not being able to even buy from the most basic store. The whole economy will be controlled and monitored. But I guess that you trust your government and you bank to not do any arm against you, isn't it ((((((((anon))))))))?
Saying that it profits the criminals is monstrously retarded, since the biggest criminals are the banks, and the companies not paying taxes by using tax heavens. It's not the little faggot drug dealer. Moreover, since it's the state that control the drug traffic, don't count on the fact that they'll track them through bitcoin transaction. Police don't have enough people anyway to do this job. That's why it's actually the banks who try to detect credit card fraud (under ~1000/2000 euros), and not the police.

>The only thing that does is prevent hoarding and even more egregious speculation.
What? You're talking about monetary creation? That's the process that build paper money, that makes it remain on pure debt. The dollars paper money you have in your pocket is a debt upon the central bank. The money who's on your bank account is a debt on the bank. Nothing have any value, and it allows bank to create money out of nowhere. Well, not from nowhere, but from continuous inflation. Bitcoin will not solve anything. I pretty much think that it'll worsten the problem. I highly think that today's crypto will not be the future crypto used in global market (when the world will have only one global market). Maybe the blockchain will be private. Maybe they want a decentralised money to make it detached from any nation (since every nation will disapear, it's pretty logic) in apparence, but totaly controlled by the one setting it up.
The whole economy is immoral. Bitcoin will not, but confirm everything that has been destroyed since the founding of modernity.
You truly must be a redditor level faggot using his little mac to think that bictoin is a good thing. That's the same kind of guy who find it totaly normal to implant an RFID chip in their hand, or soon a neurolace.

"I" expected more of you. Don't tell me you're the common hn user, not risking to go in any direction that is not approved by the official good thinking institution.
About the RFID, no, I don't think that it's particulary what is reffered to be the mark of the beast. I think that it's nearly nothing, especially when you look at the neurolace, and what are the tech possibilities that would be available in the close future. Honestly, the private corps already know everything about everyone. All i'm saying is that it's a very very dark future that is being releaved as the days advance. And it's certainly technology which is the conductor. It's like always: a trade between yourself, a piece of your soul and your privacy, for more comfort, social acceptance etc..

Moreover, you haven't read my post to the end: I'm saying that the future crypto currency will be far more controlled than what it is now. Every bank are testing their own crypto.
Don't think that banks will diseapear with the founding of a global market based on an unique cryptocurrency.
