(・∀・) I won't fail you this time grandpa!
Mine says "Yugeness". Maybe they're cousins?
Less than 100 fail posts left before this thread ends!
I feel sad that nobody has gotten one yet.
Only 89 more tries!
This will be the one!
i'm in trouble with using tor. Onion links dont work. They're just not opened. There's a sign telling kinda "fuck you". What should i do?
Get the Tor Browser Bundle, open it, type .onion URLs in the address bar. Easy peasy.
Though the Hidden Wiki has moved, died, and resurrected about fifty times since 2006. Check TorDir (dppmfxaacucguzpc.onion) or core.onion (eqt5g4fuenphqinx.onion) for the latest URLs and mirrors.
Hey, that's not how you spell "100GET."
Also, not your personal army. :D
I am new to tor. I need help with the basics. Can anyone help me please?
Welcoming myself in here.
Hmm. Lotta stuff.
Inb4 gtfo surfacefag,
this place isn't what it's cracked up to be.
>this place isn't what it's cracked up to be.
yes it is
where the fuck am i?
Does anyone else literally live online? I think that I spend an average of 19 hours a day online.
I did too, now I really don't. You'd get tired of being out and about on your own without any human contact, so I much rather enjoy death's eternal slumber.
I say this but I average 18 hours, daily.
since 7 years I'm online 16-20 hours daily
I kinda wanna be absorbed by the internet so I can stay here forever
Do you guys think we'll be able to and live in the cyberspace in a few hundred years?
I WANNA LIVE IN THE INTERNET
There won't be anywhere to live in there, at that point.
Few hundred years is too much. I want my virtual reality now so that i can say goodbye to material world and literally start living in the internet.
Even as a student I am online about 14 hours a day.
Which one do you use or like better? And why? O:
I use Firefox because it's a lot more widespread... plus I love all the addons and plugins for it, Chrome is getting there, and it's a little faster, but nothing beats good ol' Firefox IMO
The last two, yes, which are opt-out.
The others are opt-in. Firefox also lets me download malware, but that doesn't make Firefox malware.
Update checking is opt-out in Firefox, not opt-in.
Exactly what tracking is present in Chrome but not in Firefox?
Firefox's on-by-default update checking is equivalent to all of those except the omnibox and page not found suggestions. Those two can be easily disabled before they send any data.
I wish Mozilla would cut all ties with Google now that Google have their own browser. Even if Google still contribute financially, they should not be allowed special favours in return.
I want something like the browser choice feature in later versions of Windows. When I first run Firefox, it should ask me questions like, "Who do you want to be your search provider?" and, "Do you want to use Google's Safe Browsing service?"
Chrome has some great extensions.
I use AAReadable in the AA Bar: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/aareadable/omooelimgkbkdfnnciofhjoopichcbok
and this is great for threadwatching:
Did you know that some malicious websites actually DON'T serve viruses to Chrome users? That's because Google detects and blocks those sites ruthlessly. And it does this quicker than the most antivirus companies.
Tracking hippies are a funny lot.
That's what you get for fucking around with Scientologists...
42 same here. i grew up on ED and 4ch.
Sad to see it go and even sadder to see what Oh Internet turned out to be.
I can't believe people are actually lamenting the death of ED. It's like when someone jokes about something and then it seriously happens.
There was encyclopediadramatica.ch mirroring the old site and carrying on in its tradition, but they're down too right now. It's almost like they're setting up an April Fool's joke about OhInternet 2.0 or something.
encyclopediadramatica.se ITS BACK BITCHES. ...
i still mourn etherchan
Is it just me or has the overall quality of that site's user base decreased? I recall a time where the people weren't actual idiots looking for attention and calling everything they do that upsets someone "trolling".
Serious title. Suddenly I realized:
There's internet 'pillars' such as YouTube, Facebook and 4chan that a whole lot of people contribute content or simply lurk right? The communities formed are unaware of each others existence to an extend right now. There's also 'secret' elitist communities (like I consider 4-ch to be - or the 4chan textboards) that have to do with cultures or hobbies.
You can't force a sudden awareness - it happens on its own. It's an autonomous system of communities that grow, learn and become aware of each other. (Jensen's words from the movie The Network come to mind http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074958/quotes)
Moreover, coming to the title of my post, there's the I on the internet. That is, the self that is reflected. [b]You are what you browse.[/b] For example, when I browse 4chan I'm playful, naughty, horny. When I browse 4-ch I feel the need to "shut myself in" and communicate with other shut-ins (not trying to insult anyone here), and I simply do not use Facebook, which could say something about what kind of person I am socially...
There was a spark that grew into this post. I wrote as I thought about it. This has to be studied! Discuss.
Oh WakabaMark I forgot about you...
The revelation here has evaded me. These are just the basic tendencies or social groups, no?
fixed action patterns are never suppressed, they are simply taught to act within appropriate social contexts.
But can you really call this a social network? They are usually just communicating with a multifaceted machine
So basically people generate different personalities to different websites.
Imo it's more like the plot of GITS:SAC.
But back to op, you can't compare chans to facebook. FB is just wanking contest with your friends, as LJ or MS used to be, maybe even ICQ/MSN before that.
Twitter is a celebrity circlejerk of which youtube is only half, the second part being kinda chan (the comments. THE COMMENTS!) for average joes. Reddit started as a nice improvement over digg, but will eventually meet the same end - drowned in it's own karma swamp.
Multiple personas is a natural thing. You talk different in school, to your parents and to your friends. But chan is the only place where you can pretend to be anyone you want.
But indeed herd behaviour dictates it all. Chans are the only herd which is not tightly controlled by shepherds, one may say, they/we're a feral bunch.
You say that chans are the only place where we can pretend to be someone else but what if we actually become the person we're pretending to be and the persona we use offline is actually the fake one?
This makes me think of the end of Evangelion (the anime, not the End of Evangelion film)...."This is the Shinji that you know on Facebook. This is the Shinji you know on Twitter. This is the Shinji you know in real life..." etc.
I kind of half-realized this in middle school; I noticed that I acted different in front of my friends and in front of my classmates, and my parents, and teachers. Then, when I went to college I realized I was different with my college friends than I was with my middle or high school friends. I think people mostly have herd tendencies, and I feel like most social groups (IRL at least) have a leader (or leaders) who set the tone for how the group will act.
One group of friends from when I worked at a bar were all loud and crazy, so when I hung out with them, I was loud and crazy.
At home, I'm boring and quiet.
I think humans are just like this. We are pack creatures, like it or not.
Some of us adjust to a solitary lifestyle, and we are adaptable, but in a group, I think most people would take on the role the "leader" has prescribed.
a textboard and stuff
You know, you probably shouldn't have so many separate BBSes for such a small site. Just make one BBS and a thread per topic.
I used to own waro.su, but then the economy went to shit and I couldn't afford it anymore.
OH NOES HERE COMES DA IMAGEBOARD SOFTWARE DEBATES
The Society for the whatever is dead. Where else are we supposed to have these flame wars?!
According to this website:
4-ch.net-iaa is probably written by a female somewhere between 18-25 years old. The writing style is personal and upset most of the time.
Discuss, internet addicts. Is it true? It's on the internet, so it must be true...right? right?
I've yet to be convinced the methods used aren't utter tripe.
>the internet is feminizing men through passivity
> whitehouse.gov is probably written by a male somewhere between 66-100 years old. The writing style is academic and upset most of the time.
> /Debate/ managed to rank as the second manliest place on the internet,
It's now third, behind nsa.gov and some whiny blog.
I'm dying to know about /dqn/'s ranking, but the site fails to process it. Something about a non-breaking space character entity seems to be the culprit.
Apparently my tumblr was written by a 66-100 year-old male whose style is academic and happy most of the time.
That's so opposite from anyone's Tumblr that it's not even funny.
w3m, edbrowse, etc.
w3m even works for imageboards.
Pentadactyl is a great Firefox extension that allows you to control your browser with Vim-like keystrokes. It's nice since my mouse has almost no room to move around.
Midori on my older computers/netbook.
Firefox on everything else!
I use Comodo Dragon decked out with a shit ton of privacy addons.
>>1 included obscure ones like Opera, but forgot about Chrome?
