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.
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.
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 www.8ch.net/jp !
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.
>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.
They are, I think.
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.
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.
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
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).
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?
People always have and always will be stupid.
For some reason sometimes when I crop an image to reduce the file size the opposite effect happens and the file actually gets bigger? How does this happen and can it be avoided without affecting the picture quality?
Sounds like a format change. Maybe you cropped a png and saved as jpeg? Or maybe you cropped a 8bit png and saved as 24bit?
It can be happened for some reasons. I saw such thing for once when I edited my icons using special editors from aha-soft.com maybe other I don't remmeber exactly. I cropped a picture a lil bitbut I set the edges of the croppin frame OUTSIDE the edge of the picture. After I cropped programm added this piece to initial picture and it became larger.
>>1 is probably long gone, but anyway.
When you do something to a jpeg image, this is usually how an image editing program would do it:
4. Convert bitmap to jpeg macroblocks
5. Throw away some amount of detail (configurable)
6. Compress jpeg file
7. Add metadata (like "CREATED BY ADOBE PHOTOSHOP LOLOL", thumbnail, date and time, etc)
