This thread is quite obscure and I am uncertain if this post will be viewed by another human.

I am tired of this endless bullshit! I am tired of politics constantly leaking into this board, I am tired of every thread being related to damn security in one way or another, I am tired of idiots leaking into this medium and causing it to cease being entertaining and insightful for the genuinely savvy users, and I am tired of constantly running from corporations and agencies that want to oppress me and take my data, fuck this.

/tech/ has ceased being a medium for discussing genuine software and hardware and has basically become a medium for hiding from corporations and agencies and constantly being paranoid that every fucking electronic device around you wants you dead, it gets old after a while, and you end up using hardware and software which is absolutely useless for daily activities. BUT HEY! This software/hardware protects your freedom, so you should install it!

I want to discuss motherboards, I want to discuss soldering and other techniques for building simple electronics, I want to discuss interesting software applications for performing calculations or visualizing data plugged into it, I want to discuss signal interception using old television satellite dishes, I want to discuss physics and mathematics that pertains to technology, I want to discuss internal compression engines and transmissions (Because this type of shit actually pertains to /tech/).

But I know this is all a dream, imageboards are filled with faggots and individuals who are interested in these types of topics are highly rare, and on rare imageboards such as this, the only people you will find are those who are here because they care only about their privacy and that is all.

There should definitely be more threads about hardware and other branches of engineering. Ironically, even though I am EE student no one in my class is particularly interested in field they study. Drinking and partying comes before everything, it's very tiresome to be surrounded by such people and I have no one to talk with, so I often loose will to do anything. I am also not very fond of forums, since attaching name to your every post is uncomfortable in some situations and I also find forum format more confusing than image board format of discussion. So by all means start a engineering/hacking/lab/whatever thread so that we may discuss about soldering, electronics, mechanics, physics and other things that are different from usual privacy and free software talk.

Gentoo.

I used only Debian and few derivatives, then switched for Gentoo. It's very good, but compiling may be slow at old computer. Still worth it. It just werks.

I am actually in search of comfy binary distro, is Devuan good? Currently trying out Void Linux for flashdrive install. I don't like it a lot, probably just because am not familiar with it. I consider just doing Gentoo there with heavy stuff like portage tree and compiling being done on home computer.

The best linux distro is your own.

Basically anything without systemd (gentoo, void, etc..). Gentoo is a good way to make you learn how to actually build your own distro (ofc, you'll need to understand the LFS process etc..).

ideas for saving /tech/ general Anonymous 10/16/2017 (Mon) 07:26:55 [Preview] No. 11561 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
We're about halfway through October and about two weeks out from our most esteemed /tech/nician's autistic tantrum over on /operate/:

>>>/operate/7122 it's good reading, he came in with a balloon knot and left with a rectum that you could park a utility van in

so it seems like a good time to reassess the state of the board.

Since October 1st, there have been 0.6 original posts per day on /tech/. I use the term "original" with some reservation, as some of them are just verbatim reposts from 8/tech/. There have been an average of 8.13 replies per day, but most of them were one-line comments or barbs without substance, or memes, or corrections to a previous post. We're averaging about 1 substantive reply per day. Two on a good day. I didn't feel like digging into the numbers any further, but it's my impression that these averages don't even reflect how dire the situation is, as there was a burst of activity at the beginning of the month that has tapered off significantly.

/tech/ is not dead, but it's on life support, and, ironically, none of its denizens seems to know how to service the life support machine.

It would be a shame for this alternative to pigchan and Hiroshima's /g/ to wither through neglect.

Let's brainstorm ideas for keeping this place alive.

WPA2 protocol attack Anonymous 10/17/2017 (Tue) 06:41:08 [Preview] No. 11568 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
https://www.krackattacks.com/

>We discovered serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. An attacker within range of a victim can exploit these weaknesses using key reinstallation attacks (KRACKs). Concretely, attackers can use this novel attack technique to read information that was previously assumed to be safely encrypted. This can be abused to steal sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords, chat messages, emails, photos, and so on. The attack works against all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. Depending on the network configuration, it is also possible to inject and manipulate data. For example, an attacker might be able to inject ransomware or other malware into websites.

>The weaknesses are in the Wi-Fi standard itself, and not in individual products or implementations. Therefore, any correct implementation of WPA2 is likely affected. To prevent the attack, users must update affected products as soon as security updates become available. Note that if your device supports Wi-Fi, it is most likely affected. During our initial research, we discovered ourselves that Android, Linux, Apple, Windows, OpenBSD, MediaTek, Linksys, and others, are all affected by some variant of the attacks. For more information about specific products, consult the database of CERT/CC, or contact your vendor.

The Q&A is worth reading, and has information on attack mitigations. Unfortunately, if you are using an Android smartphone that isn't receiving updates anymore, your WiFi security on that device is probably null.

In the future, anyone who can build a desktop will also be able to build a laptop. This is the entire point of a free hardware project like this.

Free Hardware is not blobbed nor tivoized, not backdoored at the software, firmware and hardware level, and not designed to fail as soon as warranty expires.

Free Hardware running Free Software is the only solution to the modern craptop.

CPU, RAM, GPU: 1x single board computer

A Single Board Computer provides every component needed to build laptop, except for battery, display, keyboard and case, each of which can be added separately.

Single Board Computers provide CPU, RAM, GPU, motherboard and some other integrated features on a single board. They are full desktop computer system that is sufficiently small and low power consuming to be used as a mobile, DIY laptop. They are also very low cost (<$50).

The most important feature of Single Board Computers is that there are models that are fully open source. It is possible to build a fully functional laptop with Free Software only, including free firmware, wireless and 3D video acceleration drivers. It is even possible to get SBCs with open source hardware designs.

For reference:

Single Board Computers with free 3D video acceleration (Etnaviv)
Nitrogen6X ($225): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC2000, 2 GB DDR3, best option, compatible with mainline kernels
Nitrogen6_MAX ($299): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC3000, 4 GB DDR3, faster Nitrogen6X
Wandboard QuadPLUS ($139): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC3000, 2 GB DDR3, cheaper version of Nitrogen6_MAX, not mainline

Charger

The DIY Modular Open Source Laptop is designed to be charged by any combination of solar panel, handcrank generator, USB AC adapter, USB car charger, USB port or thermoelectric generator. Unlike most rechargeable electronics, each charger can charge the USB powerbank battery of the DIY laptop seperately from the DIY laptop. This flexible and modular charging ensures the DIY laptop never runs out of energy, yet never needs to be charged either.

For reference
USB solar charger: SOKOO 22W 5V 2-Port USB Portable Foldable Solar Charger ($55)
Handcrank generator: K-TOR Pocket Socket Hand Crank Generator Portable Power Supply 10 Watts 120 Volts ($60)
Pedal generator: K-tor Power Box 20 Watt Pedal Generator ($200)
Thermoelectric generator: Camping Stove Thermoelectric Generator TEG Power - Devil Watt 15 Watt ($304)

Each reference charger can provide the 5V 2A needed to charge a USB powerbank at full speed. The most convenient charger will depend on the situation.

Solar panels can provide >150 W unattended outdoors at daytime.
Handcrank or pedal generators can provide <150 W attended indoors or outdoors, day or night. Handcrank generators can be used while standing or moving, but pedal generators can be used while also using the DIY laptop.
Thermoelectric generators can provide >150 W unattended outdoors, day or night. Indoors with ventilation.
USB AC adapters can be used wherever there is AC electric grid.
USB car adapters can be used with most DC electricity sources such as 12 V car batteries or six 1.5 V AA batteries in series. USB car adapters can also convert DC from solar panels, thermoelectric generators, handcrank generators, DC wind or hydroelectric turbines into 5V DC for charging the DIY laptop.

This machine before your eyes is extremely powerful, a machine that grants its user access to all of the information conceived by the human species. It is capable of performing highly complicated mathematical calculations thousands, possibly millions of times faster than your typical human, and can store massive amounts of information, perhaps a library filled with thousands of books stored on this little machine, too massive for a measly individual to read in their lifetime, is reality.

When these sophisticated and wondrous machines had begun to appear in the 80's and 90's, the savvy individuals saw them for what they were, highly capable machines that would greatly change the world. They had taken advantage of this, and they became the first hackers, people armed with these extremely powerful tools. Companies and marketers observed this new medium and knew they could gain great wealth using it, and the mainstream mediums with the purpose of entertaining were born.

If only people knew just how powerful that little "phone" in their hand truly was. What a great time to be alive, so many ignorant fellows bickering about the problems in the world and how the past was such a great era, with no knowledge of what is truly happening at this moment.

I don't think I'm that intelligent. Really.
Actually, if you haven't understood the statements above, then it's my fault, not yours.

What you have said is true, except that there is no distinction between "computers" and "internet", it's the same. The interpretation of the informations on this internet is that is distinct from the computers.

About the text above (>>11303), I probably haven't explained properly.
Let's come back and do an analysis of your OP. You said:
>access to all of the information conceived by the human species.
That is not true, because we can access on computers only the information we produced, not the information we thought. Inside our heads there's much more information, that we can't express because these informations are not capable of being expressed with normal language (scripted or phonetic). That's why we have art, but even with art, complex thoughts can't be expressed because they are more of an experience through senses.
>performing highly complicated mathematical calculations
It does, but we should not just assume that mathematics is the "truth language". This is silly. Mathematics is a language used to express classical logic. So we should question if this classical logic is correct. If you go down the "rabbit hole", you'll notice that the foundations of science is not as solid as people think.

So, on my first comment I was just criticising your argument about "access to all of the information", basically.


About your AI idea, it seems cool, but that will take a huge effort and our understanding about human thoughts is not entire predictable, since we have no predictable model of the mind yet, and without all the variables you can't calculate.

All computers do past its true value as an efficiency chamber is create the illusion that an individual can achieve something when it's actually achieved by society as a whole. OP is wrong. Computers aren't helping us build cathedrals more magnificent or formulate philosophy more poignant, if anything it convinces us of the unworthiness of such attempts at beauty. What are hackers known for, the really good ones? Petty leeching off of society's existing structures, but in a very efficient way.

Basically, anything particularly useful that's done with computers is already done by massive superclusters that there can only be a few of in existence, or its tasks that have been done for ages by houses full of several people. It can be done by a single person with a PC, but giving them all a PC will not stack and only gets you repeated instances of those people doing the same thing over and over again. Ten million athletes will improve the world record only by milliseconds from the record of one million athletes. All it does is the athletes become less versed with anything else and become obtuse and preoccupied with their field, worse philosophers and worse voters.

Meanwhile, the only real innovation of personal computing is that once dumbed down enough we can now decrease the amount we actually have to commute to the same building to work.

I try not to worry about the future too much. For now I am part of a welcoming community bonded with free software. I will admit though, there is political influence making its way into tech. When the old members that act like pillars die, there is every chance freedom will be outlawed.

Bit torrent and P2P communities will be what temporarily saves the internet for past and current generations. Future generations won't know anything about the current internet and less than 1% will ever use P2P software rendering the internet into commercialized networks much like we see on TV.

I agree, backup everything and make sure you have multiple backups. But this won't save the internet forever as the mindless public capitulates to the total destruction of everything that made the internet so great.

If the original intenet ever goes, I'll go with it, and I won't be buying a bunch of "smart" tech or other commercialized crap. I'll be reading books, watching DVDs, throwing darts and drinkin' booze from a jar again. Going back to simpler times like the early 80s.

Who agrees?

Reasons its shit:

1) IP logging
2) Posts are forever
3) Avatar fagging
4) If you change your IP it demands a phone number or you can't use the same username again if you registered.
5) Full of status messages: I'm paying fallout 4
5) It's catching on with faggots and now every chan and forum wants you to join their discord for that board. Irc didn't ever have 1-4 and wasn't as popular as discord is becoming.

Web 3.0 really will be a fucking chat room on every site.

There is already a thread about discord. I don't know why it bothers you so much if discord exists, just don't use it. Based on what I've seen so far most people who use it, are your average gamers talking like "omg memes kek dude lmao". On IRC there is at least some sort of discussion going on, but even there I can sense the presence of neo-/pol/-meme crap. Last day I joined #electronics on freenode and what did I get? Some dude talking about socialists. I don't know if I'm going insane, but people are talking about politics a lot more than in the past. Last US election had a really big impact on the internet, it changed people in a bad way.

IM is not great for everything, there are some genuine uses for it, but it's mostly shitposting. You need to take some time to write a meaningful post, think about the content and structure it well.
