Videomaking and stuff like that. I would like to get into formal proof/verification, though. Maybe in the next years following.

Why has Terry Davis become the new face of /tech/, just some schizophrenic pol-tier guy who created his own operating system, a computer would be much more suitable.

How ironic, people from /g/ couldn't decide on a logo to making an operating system for many years until some dedicated dev had kept on improving the content of the frequently abandoned /g/ project more than the logo up to how it is now (CloverOS), yet people like you care less about content and care more about a fucking picture.

People here in the last thread couldn't decide on anything collectively, and I did listen to someone's request in providing a good image but that guy needed to polish that image a little more to be presentable to my standards yet he was just too busy to deliver. Same goes to the guy that wanted to have a custom CSS that fits his own terminal colorscheme, he didn't come back to post the finished CSS. You have to be the change that you want to see in here. However, if you really want me to make a new sticky just to qualm your autism, the blood will be on your hands.

Provide me a competent image and have someone else here to agree with you in its implementation and do it ASAP but don't make me wait too long. However, this is really truly a non issue, but the real issue is that I will only allow just one more sticky image change. Get it right this time or I'll remind you all it's your guys' fault and I'll make a new sticky without any OP image and make it an official rule to not bitch about the sticky thread image posthumorously when there's no sticky image to even complain about.

Grow up.

You do understand there's no license to shitpost in The End℠ right?

There is no true objective winner in the license wars, every public or private license has its own purpose. Having Stallman or Terry won't change how people will always be triggered. If anything, people like you want to take over this board.

Provide me a competent image and have someone else here to agree with you in its implementation and do it ASAP but don't make me wait too long.

I wish I could have been there for the last day it was all still up. Schoolwork called me away, and now it's all gone. It's just like those stories where a loved one dies while you were called in; in this case, during a routine checkup. I don't think I got the chance to sweep the desktop thread, for instance.

>>12660
So what are you going to do now? Keep running the board? This is very sad.

Here's the basic rundown, I don't have a backup of the banners but let's face it, we don't need more than one. I wasn't the BO when the custom flags were added though I could make an attempt to add some basic flags although some of you hate the concept of virtually identifying through flags so would rather not have any custom flags. The spoiler image sucked anyways so a new one can be done.

This is a site wide issue as you should know from reading >>>/operate/8874 so how I moderate this /tech/ or whether or not I would continue to moderate this /tech/ won't change how there's basically two options for this /tech/'s Board Owner to deal with. Option 1: Do everything from scratch again. Option 2: Wait and hope that by some miracle the database might be restored some time in the future. Option 2 is unlikely to happen as recent updates had revealed by odilitime >>>/operate/8967 so Option 1 it is.

Upload whatever image you guys want and specify what that image would be for. There can only be one spoiler image and one sticky image but there can be many custom flags and banners. I don't care much for uniformity anymore but I don't want lengthy or huge custom flags, keep them at most 64x64px but it can be wider than 64px in width. If three people or more people don't want custom flags then so be it.


betamax Board owner 04/28/2018 (Sat) 08:37:12 [Preview] No.12666 del
Hold on, noticed a few custom flags are visible. Is barlog's plan >>>/operate/8960 just barely being implemented recently? Interesting.

Well, just in case, I've archived every thread here:
https://archive.fo/https://eu.endchan.net/tech*

For the older archive links, see:

https://web.archive.org/web/20171011180943/http://endchan.net:80/tech/

I for now don't see any reason to delete the old threads. If you want to post the same old images, either wait for the threads to expire, or I can temporarily reduce the number of threads to get rid of say at least half of the old threads.

betamax, do you have the specification for the images we need? I mean:
- What resolution (in pixels)
- What format, png or jpg? There's support for svg yet?
- How many we need? The sticky, spoiler and a banner, that's it?

I could do it, if anyone have any idea just hit me and I'll see what I can do. Is Terry again a good idea? Show your thoughts.

As long as any of the images are gif (non epilepsy inducing), png or jpg though preferably png, it's okay. The sticky, spoiler and banners should have at least a capitalized Omega letter Ω in it, preferably in a serif font and looking symmetrical since some fonts have asymmetrical Ω used.

The sticky image can be any size although please don't use abnormal resolutions and shouldn't be a file bigger than 10 MB. There can be up to five sticky images but the first one in alphanumeric order will become the first sticky image that will show up in the catalog. If you want to reupload the old Terry image, change one pixel.

The spoiler image should be a square but preferably 250x250px. Only one spoiler image can be used at any given moment. Just include either a question mark or something that says spoilers or nsfw since this board is a safe for work board.

The banner image should be wider than it is tall. There can be as many banner images as one wants to upload. If anyone has the older banners, they need to edit one pixel to reupload it or else Endchan will not let it show up. The previous banner image resolution was 500x200.

The custom flags can be slightly wide but not tall, but we don't really need custom flags. I'll disable custom flagsCan't disable flags without deleting all of them but should someone reupload most of the old custom flags in a zip folder or something, one pixel needs to be changed in all of them so that I can upload them again. The resolution of these custom flags shouldn't really be beyond 50x50px, I think.

I think the way the catalog looks now is ugly and off-putting,
so if you've already archived them all,
then there's no reason to keep them around.

Lack of fresh content, or an abundance of stale content,
may discourage people from posting new stuff.
So I'd rather see it all nuked and rebuilt from the ashes
at this point, but have the links to old Omega Tech be
preserved in a new sticky.

Admittedly, though, I've already moved on from here. Endchan
was a cool idea, but after a lot of effort on peoples' parts,
it's yet to catch on and is unlikely to do so as long as
4/g, 8/tech, and Lainchan are still around. This site does not
have much to offer that the other sites don't---except for not
being a botnet---that will induce potential users to care to make it
a home. People don't care that mook and Jim are datamining them.
They care that there are way more people currently posting than,
say, here. I don't see in the foreseeable future this changing at all.

I'll get to nuking everything (yet the images in the old database can't be posted still) after there's at least some contributions for >>12684 which if there's no new sticky image and banner image by the end of the weekend, I'll just cook something up and make you all suffer with me to the end. I've already "moved on" to decentralized networks and follow some websites for general information, none of which I'd dare to mention here, but I'm still very much invested in keeping this joint running and not going away any time soon.

Welcome to /tech/, a technology board. This board is for discussion of computer technology, both software and hardware.

NSFW files are only allowed if they are spoilered.

I think this part should be "technology in general". There's subjects we might discuss that are not computing, and technology is not limited to computers.
Besides that, the OP text is good.
