@Tyler Baker Squarespace is probably far-leftists, but the site is very easy to use.
Today I was thinking about the possibility of an open source web search engine. One of the biggest criticisms that I think we on the alt-right have about tech companies is their obvious biases and google is no exception. However in trying to establish (and correct for) biases explicity it is hard to object to search engine results because it's hard to audit how those results were generated. For this reason I think web search engines being open source would be quite natural, because then people could defend/attack/suggest improvements to the methodology. In that vain I assumed I couldn't have been the first person to have thought of the idea of an open source web search engine before and it turns out there a handful. The first I found was https://www.gigablast.com
I searched "alt right" there and I think the results are better than google's.
I also found YaCy though I played with it less, it integrates being a search engine with also being P2P. https://yacy.net/en/ That's a nice feature though I wasn't even thinking that far when I first started on this research.
Of course with web search engines the code is only one piece of the puzzle, the other piece of the puzzle is what websites are indexed, i.e. what data is "the fodder" on which the web search is based.
I do wonder if there's any utility this tech could provide for the alt-right. I'm always interested in alt-tech.
@sigruna14 I know you're an alt-tech guru I would be interested in your hot take (and anyone else's)
YACY is a brilliant idea. Didn’t work too well for me but I think it’s in alpha still
Anything that furthers the glory of our movement is worthy, however, we have to get people to actually use it. I don't think most people use Google for their search. I think people use them for Chrome, maps, GMail, Smart Lock, Android etc, and the search just happens to integrate with all that. If we really want the take down Google, we need to replace their functionality.
@John O - Sorry for the delayed reply. What is it you're trying to do?
It's cool, talked to my cousin
@Deleted User alright, so I'm installing Debian, and trying to install lxqt, but when I input apt install sudo lxqt, it says it can't find it
E: unable to locate package lxqt
“sudo” should be input before anything else. It indicates that the command should be run with root permissions.
So a good thing to try next would be ‘sudo apt-get install lxqt”
@John O -#7072
I botched the quotes but hopefully you get the idea
@Deleted User I did, and it said something along the lines of an unrecognized command. I'll get back to it later.
I’m not very familiar with Debian, but the next thing to try would be the same command, except type “apt” instead of “apt-get”
sudo apt-get me a GUI so I don’t have to deal with all this nonsense :p
I've never tried OpenBazaar, but accepting bitcoin for your goods would be a good move in any case
A lot of people are moving from tor to openbazaar
Idk if OpenBazaar is enough for marketing a business. But accepting bitcoin is a big benefit to your business
Yeah it needs to be developed more before it can be completely trusted.
We need something like Etsy to accept bitcoin
Overstock.com accepts bitcoin, or at least it did. I know a lot of merchants have been having problems because the fees and transaction times are too slow
@this_that5553it sounds neat,but still really unsure of bitcoin,don't know all that much of it. But i like the concept of OpenBazaar. Something to think about more once i get going
@celticflame you can always immediately convert it to American $, or spend it on Amazon.
If I had a business where I produced goods, I would use that as a good opportunity to get bitcoin
I should have said this before, but I realize now we should keep crypto related conversation out if here too
@ThisIsChris (autistic screeching intensifies) I assume you mean cryptofinance and that this would be the preferred place for cryptography and COMSEC discussion? because the latter (which actually may or may not be channel-worthy) is something that I can offer some decent insights about that don't relate to the former at all
@ThisIsChris what about blockchain related topics? crypto is based on it but blockchain is used for other things.
@ArtairRose#9199 blockchain OK, even the technical aspect of building your own cryptocurrecy is OK, what I want to prevent is the price of today's altcoin deriding all topical conversation in a channel that isn't cryptofinance
>Intel says the stock sale was unrelated to the vulnerability, but came as part of a planned divestiture program. But Krzanich put that stock sale plan in place in October - several months after Intel was informed of the vulnerability.
Why do they lie about stuff that’s so easy to disprove?
A redditor’s response:
Possibly because Krzanich will probably never get SEC actions taken against him.
He's been the CEO of Intel - the manufacturer of the most powerful tool for exfiltrating foreign countries' data that the NSA has ever had.
He oversaw and kept mum about the IME blackbox in every Intel CPU. There's absolutely no way that people at Intel didn't know about these vulnerabilities years ago. They've collected and analysed crash dumps from billions of installed systems running hundreds of OEM OSes for the past two decades.
The fact that they were not fixed means one thing: Intel's largest customer, the US Intelligence Community, ensured this "feature" that Meltdown exploits, continued to be kept in production.
The last Tech Sector CEO to refuse to comply with US Intel extrajudiciary activities, in PRISM, got the SEC so far up his colon that he couldn't cough without filling out a stock value impact form and got prosecuted for insider trading. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Nacchio
Krzanich played ball and gave the NSA every feature they wanted for as long as he worked there. He won't spend a moment in a courtroom.
Anyone @here know how to fug with webpack? @sigruna14 wants to know
Damn I forgot about this server.
>this server btfo'd
Do any of you guys have experience with e-commerce, dropshipping, using Shopify storefronts to sell items? It’s piqued my interest lately
@APmessaged you back. Unfortunately have had to put all business on hold,on back burner for now. Got thrown into alot of family personal stuff going on
@celticflame I think it's a topic that a lot of people are curious about, could you post something here about what you found?
Well my head feels like stuffed wool right now do to alot of stuff going on in family so bare with me...
For the past year or 2,i have been slowly building up a small hand beaded jewelry business, getting products made now some in small bulks here n there,ready to sell. Got some business cards made off of Vista Print. Have looked online into Etsy & Ebay that want to charge you a lovely fee per item that you try to sell off their sites,decided not to do. Have looked into and started setting up app called "Shopify"- they give ypu a 14day trial period to start setting things up,give you some sample pages for you to set up,display your items for sale,seem the best to go by. Have gotten emails back on directing traffic to your site once you get it made,etc and how to help with the business aspects of it. There are some free sample pages u can use or some u pay fee for,all depends on your set up and way you want things, etc. So far seems the most solid from what i have compared to other sites in the past. Just need to get it done,set up. Because at the time i would have got started a bunch of family emergencies have happened so haven't had chance to finish setting up. I have kept somewhat track of receits,costs it has taken to make all my products,but still have alot not done so best to keep a quickbooks aspects of business costs set aside for your product's. Have taken lots of patience and time to build products up,so not something you do relatively quick. Still learning barely by the curveballs thrown at me. Plus what it will cost to ship products, and what you also have to factor in. Am alot closer to trying to get it off the ground but like i said have now had family issues to deal with so having to set aside and come back to again in lil while when i get better time,rtc set aside. Please excuse any fuzziness,really drained right now from driving lots hours,stress & little sleep.
Just 1 example of my product i have made by hand,take alot of time and patience
Not to mention costs of supplies i get off ebay or local,etc. Like Silver,gemstone beads like the Amethyst,Opal,Pearls in bottom set,or some of the Swarovski crystals,silver & silvwr chain in top 1. Alot of factors...
Anyways,thats as far as I've gotten. Takes time,sorry can't be of any further help right now folks. Like i said,so close to launching but am having to put on hold to help with extended family matters
Oh also have a magnetic reader white Square thing to use too
If anyone is looking for contracting leads...I know a guy looking for someone with node.js/angular experience building gui. I believe some Mongo experience is helpful. DM me if interested. He's looking to fill the position within the week.
Also,put into perspective that I made a photobox out of cardboard & cheesecloth and couple decent lightning setups to photograph some stuff with,play around with,that also takes time to get every item done,which I'm still learning & playing with since some pics take and others don't. Also costs for Display,bags,etc too. Lots of aspects still fiddling and learning by trial or fail. And if you decide to sell at craft fairs or other faires to get your name out,besides it going online and getting started. And other business apps that can help you or books,what have you. Factor your costs it takes to make item,add in your time it takes to make it & times by 3. When i took old jc jewlery class in past, teacher told us to times the item by 3. That's material costs,time,etc
Best to keep solid stable accounts to go by instead of hit and miss,otherwise you have to go back and figure out all over again & thats alot of wasted time
Also if for instance you have to go by price of silver that you use if you hand sauder a silver ring,how those stock prices flutuate. Not to mention the costs you can't apply for say your own quality hand tools you might use to make a piece. Nor your work space. But thats off topic a lil. Anyway hope ya get the jists of tryung to start up your own company and many facets you have to factor into it
Sorry its not alot of tech jargon but what goes into prior to it. Like i said,learning as i go
Self-hosting that would be great too
It's just a protocol, not a full chat solution, sadly
Also, it was just said today that Whatsapp has a backdoor to convos even though they advertise the encryption. Can't trust anything that doesn't open source server code. Even then they could be running different code than what they show on github, but it's a better bet
Anybody have camera suggestions.
I was thinking about getting aOlympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III
What are you wanting to do with it?
@JesseJames we talked about a lot of options. Favoring the sony a6000 now
I'm not the one buying though lol
I'm assuming your going to use video mire
After seeing the conversation and the video results for that sony a6000 that's what I'd buy.
I am a Nikon fan. I've also had a cannon. I have heard good things about Sony the only negatives I've heard are the lenses have issue with dirt getting in them and I went through that with the g7x.
@Why Tea A good point was brought up that 4k video makes the a6300 more future proof
Hot Take: As much as I like decentralized/distributed tech projects, I don't think they'll ever catch on because the ability to delete things and have them deleted for everyone else is too valuable for people. The "once posted, always posted" thing is very unsettling to most normal people.
Dude. How long does google drive take to upload a 4min video!?
Still says "starting" for 20mins now.
@Deleted User sounds like it's trouble connecting. Is your space full? Do you have wifi? If everything seems find, might just want to refresh the page if you are using the web client, or restart the computer if you are using the automatic backup thing
Space = Google drive space
Thanks @ThisIsChris Everything is in working order. Never used googledrive before. Think I might be getting there now.
Anybody into amateur radio?
What is up with the new tor for android? Can't switch by swiping and added some basic apps like google chrome etc.
@Deleted User hmm I didn't know you could switch by swiping before , minus that, I can't notice any differences, although admittedly I only used it when DailyStormer was down. Are there any other onion sites you recommend as worthwhile?
Cool I didn't know you could do that. @Deleted User does that get around bans?
@ThisIsChris. No unfortunately, as far as posts being too "altright" etc... just runs Twitter traffic through tor for privacy. Orfox (the web browser) is dependent on the site suspecting unusual traffic as far as viewing. Finding a link for Twitter on how to do...
Install and activate Orbot, open Twitter, tap the gear icon on the home screen.Check the “proxy” box, enter ‘localhost’ and ‘8118’.Open your account settings, and disable the “Sync Data” option to stop push notifications which cannot be proxied through Orbot/Tor.
Ok I got a question for all the computer gurus here. My wifi works on my tv my kids iPad and my phone. Won't work on my laptop. But I can use my hot spot on my phone to get the internet to work on the laptop... wth.
@JesseJames Does your laptop "see" your wifi and you just can't connect to it? Or does your laptop not even see the wifi?
It sees it connects and everything just won't load anything. But if I connect it to my hot spot on my phone it works
@JesseJames Hmm... 2 Qs:
1. Have you tried restarting your computer?
2. What model router do you have?
Yes I have restarted it it's always my go to lol. It's an arris. Server admin told me to check my drivers on the laptop and I'm going to try that later and see what it does. It's just odd to me the wifi is working on other devices and the laptop is working on the hotspot.
@JesseJames on the router (maybe on the bottom) there should be an "http://" followed by several numbers, possibly `http://10.0.0.1` or `http://192.168.0.1` or something similar. Write that into your laptop's web browser and see if that page loads. If that page DOES load then your computer is connecting to your router fine.
I think it's windows 10 pro. I will check that as soon as I get home. Thanks man.
@JesseJames You're welcome. Yeah so I would check that "http://" thing on your router. If you can connect, then the connection between your router and your computer is fine and it is something else. But if you can't connect to that address then as siggy said it is probably a device driver thing. Use that wifi you can get from the cell phone to run the driver update wizard in your system settings.
So I got home tried the http thing and it worked and now it's working just fine.
@JesseJames Cool, thanks for the update! Networking can be a finnicky thing. If that happens in the future I would try visiting that address again to see if that knocks it into shape
Is it possible that fixed something? If so what could it be?
There's a few things it could have been, all of them "bugs". When you connect to the internet, traffic goes from your computer to your router to your modem to your ISP, and then out to the rest of the world. Anywhere along that chain there could be problems getting traffic in or out. By connecting to that numerial address on your router, you were connecting to a website that is just on your router, so the traffic didn't have to go all the way to your ISP. In other words, you were *just* testing the connection between your computer and your router. This was simpler for the router then having to get traffic from the ISP and forward it to your computer, so by doing a simpler task it may have just reminded your router how to connect correctly to your computer, and then it was able to do the more complex task of forwarding you traffic from the real internet correctly
Ah. Just when I think I'm fairly good with computers. Lol.
haha to be fair without the manufacturer's code it's hard to know *exactly* what's going on, you just have some broad ideas of how things work and try poking around in them.
Does a hammer work for poking around?
char c = "Str";
c = 'r';
printf("%s\n", c); //Output: Srr
How to get this to work with an array of strings? I have an array of strings (char*) and I need to modify individual characters of each string. I'm getting segfaulted because I had type `char**`. Now I know `char` works for individual strings but how can I extend that to arrays of them? I'm writing this in C btw.
@John O - obviously I know the answer but I think the outcome would be satisfying.
Ball peen or claw?
Hmm that's a tough one.
1st answer here is easier than me writing out pointer thingy data structure: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1088622/how-do-i-create-an-array-of-strings-in-c
@Why Tea I'm not sure how that addresses what I'm trying to do here.
Then maybe I don't understand the question. "How do I create an array of strings" is your question, and the second answer in that StackOverflow pretty much covers it.
For multiple cases.
No, I know how to create an array of strings. My question is how to modify individual characters of the strings within said array.
The answer to that is in there if you read carefully.
You're talking about this? Wholesale string copy?
Are you wanting to hit the individual characters in the string and substitute? I think I did miss the gist of what the question is. You have variable length strings, in an array structure (pointers to a bunch of strings) but you want to change just individual characters at will?
It is an array of three strings, each of which is three characters long. It starts out with each string being `"000"`. I need to be able to reach in and change the zeroes to ones where necessary.
But you want to reach in and "touch" each one individually, at will.
Add data type size to array pointer to access each char
Assuming your language won't let you index the array like a normal person
That's all indexes are anyway. Array pointer + index * data type size
Well I mean, obviously it won't.
So do like `*array + (sizeof(char) * 2)`?
@Perihelion - CA Nope, "lvalue required as left operand of assignment"
I think you have to use &array to let it know you're treating the array like a bit literal
Ok do this for c++ *(array+2) to get value
Array + 2 for mem address reference
I'm having a weird problem. Anybody wanna help?
Yeah but it works now. Actually you want the code? See if you can break it. I think it's working. Still need to document it but I can tell you what it accepts.
Okay, I'll DM it to you. But first I'm gonna try to change how I find the command line args to be a little less ridiculous.
Hey does anybody know how to put music behind a video I’m editing… I’m using iMovie app
@Deleted User you just have to have an audio file on your phone. Select the plus on the left side and then select audio.
@JesseJames many times it won’t allow me to upload the song..”copyright” infringement is what the message says... I just (like five mins ago) bought a GoPro .... will that be easier to operate ya think ?
The GoPro editor is really good. I like iMovie though because I know it better. Where did you download the song from? Also you will have the same problem with copy rights on GoPro editor also. The best thing to do is find music on soundcloud that is royalty free. @Deleted User
I need a WordPress guy
I need a c++ guy
Hey Does anybody know how to download videos off YouTube?
@Deleted User get `youtube-dl` it is a command line program which turns people off but it really is the only thing that works without fail.
@everyone Okay well now I've got a damn JS event listener that refuses to add to a button. It's like the most basic thing ever so idk what's the problem.
Is the line of code where it's being added actually execute?
As confirmed by console log messages
@Perihelion - CA Nah, I seem to have a talent for figuring stuff out immediately after asking for help. This button is wrapped in an anchor tag and somehow the click event doesn't reach the button, which I really don't understand.
If I listen on the anchor tag, it works.
Most stuff like that does a tree search to the named element
Depending on how it works it may not parse all tags
@Perihelion - CA It was because I had used the same ID twice. OOSH.
@everyone Any front end devs here? I'm having trouble with Bootstrap, form overflowing its container, and it's pissing me off.
I fixed it.
Does anyone in here have some gopro experience and wouldn't mind helping me troubleshoot my camera?
@Fox hope experience? Is that autocorrect for photo experience? If so, @fascinima may be your man, though I think he isn't in the server
What would be a somewhat simple WordPress site I could build to help the movement/IE?
I'm not good at coding but have made a lot of WordPress sites, optimized for SEO.
Hey fellas can you recommend a safe, easy-to-use VPN blocker for me?
@Deleted User I can't remember who it was here but I was suggested to use Opera for the best free vpn.
Can anyone help me with a laptop issue?
@Valaska Try this and don't use laptops: https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/0xc0000225-error-code-on-windows-10-fixed/
@sigruna14 as in, after I use this POS for target practice I should buy a desktop?
@Valaska Yes. I have seen more than one laptop just go straight to hell after a few years. I don't know what the problem is but in my experience they don't last. That may be by design (planned obsolescence). Build yourself a desktop, don't buy no pre-built garbage. Get you some good parts on NewEgg and assemble it your own damn self.
@sigruna14 yes this will be my last one. I will probably bombard you with questions when I prepare to build a desktop.. I don't have the media in any form so I will have to DL onto USB tomorrow from a separate ((laptop)).
If buying a desktop, you might consider getting a used engineering workstation. Processors haven't improved much over the past few years, so you can pick up an HP Z-series workstation with an 8- or 12-core Xeon, 64 GB RAM, OpenGL-capable graphics card for $1000 or so. Slap in an SSD and it will fly.
i just downloaded Tor browser. what is y'all opinion on it and should i use it for IE? for which websites or for not which websites?
Why not just use a VPN?
@Deleted User Yeah you can use tor browser for anything, though some websites will not provide service to tor addresses, like reddit I think doesn't let you create an account, and from what I understand gmail doesn't work either (designed by google to be that way) but most sites will work normally. I don't think there's a need to use TOR to visit any of our stuff. TOR is nice to see onion sites though the only one I bother with is DailyStormer when it goes down which is fairly rare now. Really the only time I think it's necessary to use TOR for a normie site is if you plan to leave a comment on an antifa website. Merely reading antifa websites shouldn't be any issue at all, it's only when they can connect your IP to a hostile action that there could be an issue. For any other site I wouldn't worry and I wouldn't bother
Not that I know of
that's why i'd rather use Tor
@Deleted User it's shit I wouldn't use it. Slow and it's not actually anti censorship or free speech. Mostly used by pedos and drug traffickers
@everyone I need a good site to hire a JR sysadmin from. Not sure where to begin, but I want to get it done ASAP as my boss wants to hire some mulatto he knows who knows fuck all about technology.
Just out of curiosity what are the requirements?
@Deleted User nordvpn is probably the best VPN out there but it obviously comes with a good price tag. If you're going to use a VPN in Windows there are also a number of additional steps you will have to take like disabling teredo and some special Windows DNS stuff
@Havamal at the moment I have no idea because prior to firing the most recent one for not showing up to work I integrated pretty much everything into my role. Would have to talk with my boss about it. Mostly just basic IT background knowledge and I would train whoever was hired to manage the stuff I handle now in addition to my dev stuff.
I could pretty easily train just about anyone as long as they have basic IT knowledge I would just greatly prefer it be someone white so I don't have to deal with extra cultural and societal bullshit
I wish I could find a role like that. Here it is so competitive that you can't find a Jr system admin or security spot.
Forever IT Support 😐
It's basically the same way here. I spent a lot of time with my thumb up my ass while applying for jobs before I landed this job.
@Deleted User I would also be interested in the job description when you have it. You’re in Pennsylvania, right?
Pay would be around 35k-40k to start with healthcare
I think you might have to use Rush as a code
I'm having the most annoying bug with Fedora. 5.37 no irq handler for vector upon resume from suspend, no internet until I reboot. At first I thought adding `noapic` to kernel parameters fixed, then I removed that and it still worked, then just now it started happening again, so I put `noapic` back, and it doesn't fix it this time. It feels like I'm the only one with this problem. I can't imagine having to switch distros over one issue, but not being able to suspend and resume the machine really is a big deal. If anyone @here has any ideas, please let me know.
Ok can someone redbar me on what happens when twitter “locks” you out of your account and you have to enter a phone number to get back in? I have a sock email for twitter but I used my real cell number to get back in, then I went in and deleted my phone number from my twitter acct. I’m wondering if someone can still see/find it?
I assume I violated the rules, and if so, why would verifying a phone number let you back in?
Burner phones are $5 at Home Depot
Maybe that’s my next step
You can get one that has a certain amount of texts/calls. Just have one in your closet, and only use it to verify various accounts
So even if the app is on your main phone you can still just use the verification info off the burner right?
Idk, I've never not used a burner
Thanks, I’m boomer tier tech functional
Would you guys be interested in me writing up a guide on how to properly use a VPN? Would include specific information on Teredo, WebRTC and some weird specific MS Windows DNS stuff that has to be disabled as well as IPV6 for a VPN to properly function. You can't just turn it on have it work seamlessly. @everyone
Would be windows specific and specific to Win10
Yes. If adaptable to Windows 7, also good.
Ok. I'll look into the win7 bits and make 2 guides
Truly man's best friend
So this isn’t an April fools joke?
@Zyzz maybe. Mac is very different from Windows. I'll look into it
@Ben - OH well, some of us are technology retarded.😂 I'm like a boomer when it comes to tech. Haha
Good Win10 is such a pile of garbage. From a normie user perspective it isn't bad, but from any technical or development or mass deployment perspective its absolutely awful (much worse than Vista)
Going back to the burner phone discussion... Can anyone point me in the direction of such a phone/service provider? What I'm mostly seeing requires a monthly plan--which is unnecessary. Just a basic text/call-only phone with a certain number of texts/minutes that don't expire would be ideal.
I'll check out Walmart. Neither my Lowes nor Home Depot carried phones.
Weird. Does Colorado not have many Mexicans?
Haha, a good number there actually. I'm in Iowa staying with my family for a while at the moment though--great R&R in the rural Midwest.
Actually, I would expect a lot of Mexicans in Colorado. It never really got conquista'd, and I know a guy whose best friend got murdered by some Mexicans in Boulder
Is anybody here in IT networking or security?
Att go phone. Prepaid sims. Got mine at goodwill, came in a piece of luggage I bought, no paper trail. Lol
I was looking at that and the T-Mobile version as possibilities.
The Burner App I just learned about seems like a valid possibility too.
