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.
8/jp/ is good
4chan is bad
well I want to leave 8ch anyway, where should I get the latest otaku updates?
One post every 3 months seems fair
let see if this can make text [b]bold[/b] or [i]italic[/i]
that didn't work lets try ''bold'' or '''italic'''
I don't like this whole 8gag thing guys. I want my mama
With regards to tech support specifically, people are less and less knowledgeable about their machines to the point that they may as well be black boxes. In some cases division of labor has just gotten to the point where it is impossible for one person or a small group of people to understand every aspect of a machine, but by and large I think the root cause of this phenomenon is the forced deadening of curiosity in the interest of selling more cheap shit. In Ghana people can keep their cars in working order well past 500,000 miles, in wealthier countries people just throw things in the garbage and buy new machines more poorly built and with more restrictions placed on the user than the last iteration. I've seen adults struggle to pump their own gas, people try advice online about fixing their phones by putting them in the freezer or some other nonsense you would expect of a cargo cult, and bioinformatics software grow so complex that people with doctorates often fail to understand the proper application of each program and just churn out worthless papers that have novel results only because of a questionable choice of statistical methods by the programmer (cuffdiff's negative binomial distribution is woefully insufficient for identifying differential regulation). Every so often there is a new burst of curiosity in whatever field is fashionable at the moment, but the trend has yet to be bucked in any meaningful way.
Even the computer companies that you would hope would know what they are doing have started to forget (http://www.eremedia.com/tlnt/lost-knowledge-what-are-you-and-your-organization-doing-about-it/). Intel is probably the best example of this. Most of the people involved with writing the basis for their millions of lines of proprietary microcode are dead, senile, or long since retired. There is no one left alive who has any damn clue how the processors work beyond the basic principles and whatever increasingly small niche of design they are assigned to improve on. Everything is slowly becoming machines making machines making machines with all knowledge of their function slipping away as people make petty little flashing light games that take the existing infrastructure for granted.
How do you make the text bold or italic on these boards?
still relatively new to working outside generic operating systems. looking for an os that I can easily use to stay off the radar and to start learning how to develop my own software eventually.
I can't reach Sankaku Complex, neither directly not with a free webproxy. Could somebody tell me if they are all right?

Who fucking cares? Sankaku Complex is worse than 4chan.

lol. h8ter gun h8te.
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
why is this thread so old someone call the puhleeze
because this site is very underpopulated, ergo threads can live forever depending on which board they're on.
because it's sad
i am not a panda
Because of my Social
the fact that there are two disorders with the same acronym makes me even more sad than I was previously. (*;_;)
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.
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?
Yes, there are several. Most browsers support SVG and h264. Most browsers except IE and Safari support WebP, WebM, and Ogg/Theora.
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.
Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and others.
Pretty sure most browsers don't support any animation format.
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.
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!
have you tried to shortcut it to my computer
Thank you very much to Latheef!!
for your 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!!
What if your compter won't allow you to make zip folders?
Seriously. Fuck off. You don't know how to use the site and you keep spamming your blog here. Kill yourself.
@Latheef, thanks a lot, it works on my win XP :) God Bless you
The Best Thing to Do is Reload Windows
I Reloaded Windows and it worked.. I didn't get any Error Messages like "Invalid MS-DOS Function"
Oh god this thread is so fucking old. 10 years, wow.
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?
Complain to your college? Worst case you can afford to buy hosting and setup a proxy through that, though that requires computer tech knowledge...
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?
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
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.
> 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.
Sourceforge as filesharing? Complaining about non academic sites? They might as well block the whole Internet.
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.
>>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.
Namely, creating a branch of it that uses Openbox.
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 Tanasinn.info wouldn't associate itself with this project. Then again it's a wiki and it's just one guy editing it, so whatever.
i still don't see why someone would use this instead of just installing those package on arch.
