Sad in a way, but perhaps indicative of the changes in our society. I just returned after a 4 year hiatus, and I half to say it is almost heart-breaking to see the lack of content (゚´Д`゚)゚

Perhaps it was the end of an era? I hope not. Perhaps the drop of quality on contemporary imageboards (8ch, 4chan, etc.) will bring a flood of Anons back to textboards. They are a glorious thing that I hope we will rediscover.

3 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2015-03-30 22:55 ID:t8TPQEsL

The thing about 8ch is that can't say that 8ch itself is bad. I'd say it's rahter the boards that are shit, and more specificaly their users. 8ch only provides a playground for redards at 8ch's /b/ for example to post the exact fucking things they'd post on 4chan and brag about them and 8ch being so much better than 4chan qualitywise. If you look a little bit further than the top25 you might find a board with a decent activity and ok posts and people to discuss with. You have to look hard though if you wanna find a board where people don't have the need to use funneh maymays and greentext to communicate with one another, but there are boards like that.

And as to people comming back to textboards. I wouldn't hold my breath, really. If you wanna discuss something with chill people you'll have to find a niche imageboard, textboards are so obscure it's really saddening, this place could have been the 2ch of the west but no one cared. What a pity.
The thing that I am hoping for is that /jp/@8ch becoming more active and fun to post in, there is really a lot of potential for that board. So please tell rad people you know about !

4 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2015-06-13 01:30 ID:mckVjBoa

fuck you, 8ch is an IRC channel-circlejerk with subreddits. Everybody who actively uses this not worthy of my time. Not to mention kid that ruined my last expectations about boards for NEETs. Theres no internets anymore. Long gone. And was a teen shit.

I got banned from 4chan the other day for simply posting a cartoon pony image. I think the whole culture is messed-up, if they can't handle a harmless pony, and yet their boards are full of angry jerks who do nothing but act aggressively. It just doesn't add up.

Anyway, I'm done with bothering to post there. Besides, I have all the google tracking/API stuff blackholed in my /etc/hosts file and don't want to temporarily disable that just to post something.

I've seriously been thinking of going back to gopher and telnet BBS's.

Integrated in-car personal computer components, Suggestions please!!! (5)

1 Name: morph : 2006-06-21 17:43 ID:mgdUzMlA

OK here is the plan, I want to install a windows/linux based pc in my car for personal entertainment and gps etc..
I'm panning on using a combination of desktop and notebook components depending on price and performance and the look that I want.
What I've decided already is to use a desktop motherboard, chip, ram, hdd and graphics mainly for the hdd storage capacity. I'll propbably use a laptop slotloading dvd drive or I think plextor have a desktop slot loader,not too pushed about that.
What I really need help in is power, touchscreens, and auto battery management and multiple monitors.

The way I want to set it up is as follows:
Slot loading dvd drive in the center console/dash plus usb ports.
Touch screen monitor and maybe some hand controls in centerdash or drivers side.
Full size monitor keyboard and mouse in glovebox/dash passenger side.
Two x 7" screens in the headrests.
surround sound 7.1

because this site is very underpopulated, ergo threads can live forever depending on which board they're on.

I'm not a fan of desktop environments, never really was. They just take up too many resources, even the "lightweight" ones like this XFCE. Instead I just use stuff like twm or similar, and reserve the rest of memory for Firefox and other big hogs.

But quite frankly, I'd rather just go back to my Amiga 500. Even without the 40 MB SCSI disk and extra 2 MB RAM that I eventually upgraded to, it was still a great machine for running Deluxe Paint, and the only computer that I ever truly felt creative with.

true color animated images? (10)

1 Name: Pete Norton : 2015-06-24 01:52 ID:XKf+p8QJ

Is there any graphic format to create animated images in true color that can be viewed by most browsers or does that have to be done in flash?

2 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2015-07-02 00:02 ID:Heaven

Yes, there are several. Most browsers support SVG and h264. Most browsers except IE and Safari support WebP, WebM, and Ogg/Theora.

3 Name: Pete Norton : 2015-07-05 04:23 ID:0C/C045C

But will the image boards accept them? There's these two images I got of hot chick feeling herself that I want to combine to make an animated image, but the picture don't look so good when reduced to 256 colors.

4 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2015-07-06 03:06 ID:Heaven

That depends on the image board.

5 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2015-07-08 23:09 ID:Heaven

Most browsers you say?

6 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2015-07-18 16:53 ID:Heaven

Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and others.

7 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2015-07-23 07:15 ID:Heaven

Pretty sure most browsers don't support any animation format.

8 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2015-08-18 18:13 ID:9rCYO4QM

It depends.

4chan accepts non-sound .webm(Can accept sound .webms on their /gif/ board, but moot held it back because of screamers)

Some vichan/tinyboard fork supports sfv, sound webms and even animated png/jpg, but those are rare anyways.

Error Cannot Copy <filename> Invalid MS-DOS function (46)

1 Name: Joe!QkO1sgFXdY 2005-07-14 02:13 ID:5du9jpAD

Ok, I get this whenever I try to copy something from my CD-Rom drive, It sounds like it's working ok, but after it reaches somewhere around 40% it just gives up on the file and shows this error message saying "Error Cannot Copy <filename> Invalid MS-DOS function". The computer is brand new and I was wondering if anyone else has had the same trouble with this? thanks!

Thank you very much to Latheef!!
for your solution :

"Best solution
Inj win2003 Right click any where in your drive or dirctory then from the popup
new-> ziped folder
then a new zipped folder is created
Drag and drop the the contents of CD up on the newly created icon after a short time whole the dragged contents are ziped to your disk then upzip it. Then you will get all contents without any errors

once more, your rock dude!!

40 Name: PERSON : 2011-06-07 15:55 ID:Bf0YMnVc

What if your compter won't allow you to make zip folders?

No Internet, Only College (11)

1 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2009-09-11 13:36 ID:E7S+fm+c

Yo, I can't afford the internet right now so I do all my browsing from my college. It seems that overnight my colege started blocking everysite I ever visited. Its ok right now cause I'm using Tor. Although I fear they may start blocking Tor.

So in fear of that I ask you. What can I do if they ever start such a thing?

2 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2009-09-11 16:46 ID:fIWUWLIw

Complain to your college? Worst case you can afford to buy hosting and setup a proxy through that, though that requires computer tech knowledge...

3 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2009-09-12 03:49 ID:EhsvIcUm

Looks like you have to be careful of which websites you look at when you're surfing on campus. I doubt they'll block Gmail, but they might block other (NSFW) websites.

Speaking of which, what websites are you visiting with their connection?

4 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2009-09-12 13:47 ID:E7S+fm+c

Well there's 4chan of course, then various blogs, a couple of music blogs that were blocked because "P2P File sharing is not allowed", They even blocked Source forge because of
"File Sharing".

I've tried complaining and requesting that they unblock some of the sites but the people in charge state that "Those sites are not academic". When I inform them about the 70 some odd people on myspace and facebook they don't reply. Man some people are just so stuck up.

5 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2009-09-12 19:02 ID:J1KDEI0y


> 4chan of course

For which reason was 4chan blocked?

> a couple of music blogs that were blocked because "P2P File sharing is not allowed",

Well, they have a point there, although you can bypass that easily anyway...

> They even blocked Source forge because of "File Sharing".

You can certainly complain about this. Sourceforge shares files legally, and the files are directly tied to CS academia - they're computer software for fucks sake. Actually, that is fucking outrageous.

6 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2009-09-13 03:23 ID:Heaven

Sourceforge as filesharing? Complaining about non academic sites? They might as well block the whole Internet.

7 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2009-09-13 23:25 ID:bRCLb/6j

What about tunneling? If you can use TOR, then you could tunnel your browsing. Possible a friend could lend you part of his internet connection.

8 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2009-09-20 08:18 ID:wtDoFdua

>>7 said the best solution

Either setup an sshd in your friends computer or buy an ssh account (they're pretty cheap).

For 5 bucks a month (scroll down to the last option):
etc. you can google for 'ssh account hosting'

There is a thing called bridge exactly for the case when Tor as whole is blocked.
You just connect to a bridge which essentially acts as a proxy into Tor so all that is visible is an encrypted connection to a bridge.

Can any of you help out with this Linux distro? (8)

1 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2012-01-11 04:34 ID:xjwteEwy

Namely, creating a branch of it that uses Openbox.

2 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2012-01-16 01:26 ID:Heaven

Just fetch the Openbox sources and compile (then move to your $PATH or whatever). You might even be able to grab the binaries from Arch Linux's repository if they use the same package manager.
Honestly I wish wouldn't associate itself with this project. Then again it's a wiki and it's just one guy editing it, so whatever.

Remember those wacky early 00s amd athlon xps?
I had one. I just got 8 extra fps in QIII and because of overheating got my CP burned. AMD was shit. Then I bought intel pentium 4 2ghz and still use it to this day.

Fuck unstable ATHLON

2 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2014-11-22 07:13 ID:Heaven

All desktop chips are shit. If you think you need to overclock your processor, the rest of your machine is probably shit, too. The first laptop I ever bought had a 1.6GHz Turion (MT-30), and it ran circles around the 3GHz Pentium 4 desktop that my dad bought a year later, and used less than a third the power (25W vs 89W).

People are really fucking stupid when it comes to technology. (6)

1 Name: grey!C.MxxuCiTo : 2011-05-14 19:33 ID:nJWx28JA

There is definite sort of anti-intellectualism when it comes to technology. People don't want to learn. They don't want to grasp it. They view it as a bad thing. But they still know what martketing companies tell them, they have to have the latest smartphone or they won't be smart!

I mean, fuck, I HATE going out into public with my netbook. It's like walking a newborn puppy in public or something except it's not college girls bugging you, it's grown men and women. Five minutes before typing this some white trash guy with his kid in tow came up and started bugging me with "Eyy das a nise cumpuda. Look at it-EY BRANDON, MERE-look at his little tiny cumpuda." The guy named Brandon comes over. "Who-ho-hoo! What we gut here? Jeeze. Thats things tiny."
And there was this one diluted woman once, she walked by and practically screamed "WOW. Would you look at that TINY baby computer! Is that an EYEPAD????"
She does not even know what an Ipad is but by golly she sure does know it's just got to be the most REVOLUTIONARY INVENTION OF OUR TIME!!!!

Hole-lee-shit. It's a computer, not a puppy. Do you act like this when you see peoples blenders or microwaves too?

I always tell people to consider their needs first. For instance, I constantly get people telling me that I need a newer phone. They’re always stumped by the question of "Why?" I need my phone to make calls and for messaging. It does that already so I’m not upgrading until this one dies. You’re right, they’re just told that they must have the latest thing with no consideration as to what would actually be the best for their situation.

The tablet craze is driving me crazy because people are insisting that they must have one without considering what they’ll use it for. Do you need a reader that’s in color? If not, get a Kindle. If you don’t read, why do you need anything like this? Do you travel often and need to check e-mail? By the way, do you respond to e-mail? If so, buy a netbook. You want to play games? Games for tablets are lame, get a DS. My advice is that if you think you need a tablet, get the cheapest Chinese knock-off you can find. If you're using it all the time and need more from it, then upgrade, but not to iPad because it’s just more marketing than substance.

Most of the time they'll ignore the advice and get an iPad and never use it. It's what keeps our economy in motion, I guess.
