Deuvan is Debian without the systemd, but all the UNIX. It's maintained like it's still 1999 -- but really, nothing of any positive worth has been added to the Unix environment in the past 20 years..

[CHAT] Fuck Discord! Matrix FTW! (27)

1 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-09-24 07:17 ID:bSKKF4mb

IRC is cool and all but it's 2021. Fork in the road:
Discord OR Matrix.

We currently don't have a proper Matrix server of our own yet, but that doesn't matter because you can just join whatever server you want and then connect to channels, or make channels to share with others. Matrix is like IRC -- channel based, channels are atoms, the admin "owns" their own channel to some degree -- users are free to create new channels, and unlike IRC, permissions management is simple AND real end-to-end encryption is possible.

Unlike Discord, where the "channel group" is created first and then contains its exclusive channels within it (with a shared power structure), Matrix users can also freely create "channel groups" for relevant channels, for private use or social use, to help organize similar channels by concept or intention. This radical inversion of the paradigm is naturally more in line with VIP values and return a more natural, bottom-up sense of vision to this space that corporate entities seek to seize and exploit to maladaptive ends.

it is very easy to get a bouncer for irc but it's not worth it unless you have actual friends on irc who use it regularly.

19 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-02-22 08:37 ID:WRKGqxlz

As >>18 said, there's bouncers you can use for IRC. Even if you don't use a bouncer most IRC networks have a host option to mask your IP. Then making sure to do proper SSL/TLS connections will protect you as well.

20 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-05-09 18:22 ID:kSYkzz9A

By this logic, we should all start using FB messenger

IRC is a sane and well-established protocol. It's easy to work with, there are plenty of good clients, and it just works.

21 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-05-20 17:59 ID:YjoroCsI

You could literally accomplish everything said in this thread with a well oiled XMPP server.

22 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-07-07 14:52 ID:VIvDRad4


Many networks will give you a bouncer or at least mask your IP but I don't think it's all that necessary. Unless you have enemies on an IRC network you don't really need to worry. Any firewall should block ports and nobody is likely to DDoS you unless, as mentioned, you piss people off. Just be sure to connect via SSL/TLS and that'll give you an extra layer of security. Likewise, a VPN can be useful to route through thoughamy VPNs are banned due to abuse, so your results may vary.

But yes your IP is usually visible by default on IRC networks.

23 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-07-13 06:59 ID:U9EkSRFO

Using SSL when connecting to IRC is neat, until someone else joins the channel with plaintext connection and everything leaks in the clear from the other side.
Jabber/XMPP could be enough for everyone, but then, what the excuse would be to reinvent the wheel and /or hoover up all the data.

24 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-08-24 18:30 ID:h0GKVNQG

you dont need to read the backscroll. use it to have conversations not as some glorified forum system. find a network with HistServ so you have the immediate context of the chat, or like everyone else has said, get a bouncer that does it for you. infinite history sucks.

Can I run Windows software on Solaris using wine?

408 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-10-29 03:39 ID:iiFBMAJc

I would say RISC OS, a classic like OS/2, but you may need an ARM computer/emul to make it run. Think ppl got it to run on a Raspberry Pi.

As for x86 platform, a little, often overlooked one is GEOS for PC. Similar Win 3.x, nowadays it is foss, iirc. Also marketed as GEOWorks, Breadbox Ensemble a.o..

Newest is OS/2 derivate is ArcaOS, but non-free. Quite a bit modernised, so it installs on more recent PCs. Sadly idiots at IBM never released OS/2 source, could have been the better Windows... :(

What Text editor you guys use, and like? (8)

1 Name: ed(1) : 2024-02-06 20:14 ID:sXM4ZYHY

I might frighten some sissies, but I heavily use ed(1).
Look at you in disbelieve, questioning how could this be possible, "why would anyone use it?" you sissy slut say.
I believe anything else is absolute bloat, even the visual idiot vi editor; is bloat hiding under the minimalism umbrella with its six grillion features, let's not forget the eymax jewchinese faggotry, an entire fucking OS on another OS all to fucking take notes in org formats, those jiggers thinking they're like a fucking Jedi for using "such a powerful editor" OS to open an email client.
Why would I even bother to install Unix or Loonix to end up living inside my editor, where I can't even leave my machine without taking my config files with me
I mean, you faggots even started to challenge each other to not leave those fancy sissy editors.
None of you can be truly commune with your machine on a very deep and personal level, because of your brainlet kikery.

How do I learn computer? (9)

1 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-09-29 21:26 ID:vOTR+GC/

So how do I actually learn computing. Do I start with programming? Then what do I do after that? I just want to know how my damn machine works, get the best out of it and know how to write programs. What programming language should I start with? Should I install Linux? What's a good curriculum I can follow in my spare time?

2 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-09-30 05:10 ID:a79gp11T

C programming language. Many languages are influenced by it. After you learn C then just learn whatever you want to use.

Don't bother with Linux unless you NEED to run software that only works on Linux. Just stick with what you are already running.
You will waste time dealing with distribution or Linux-specific problems that would not be found in a well designed operating system.

3 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-09-30 12:22 ID:4xO8Dj9/

Unix and C are the basis of literally everything so just learn those

4 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-10-04 02:40 ID:PH71Wibb

Read the book Linux Command Line (you can get it free online) then install Arch Linux by reading through the wiki (or just Debian if you want something more stable). Then learn C or Scheme. Scheme is easier but doesn’t have a lot of practical use. C is primitive but powerful and it runs literally everything. Choice is yours.

A well designed operating system does not exist, you will waste time on OS-specific problems no matter what you do.

6 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-10-26 01:20 ID:f8xAwF5H

Okay so I installed Debian and now I am learning the Scheme but the SICP book is too hard. What else should I read?

7 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-12-31 00:29 ID:keFstFqV


Keep learning SICP. Just reference other books or online sources when you need to know more about something it's talking about. Also get a good book on Linux to help you get used to that. I reccomend A Practical Guide to Linux: Commands, Editors and Shell Programming by Mark G. Sobell. It's quite a tome and not a book you read cover to cover (unless you would be good to do so, just not really intended to be read that way as it's dry) but it will teach you the ins and outs of Linux in ways a gay JooTube video or some blog post can't.

8 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-12-31 00:30 ID:keFstFqV


Here's a digital copy below, but it's worth picking up a physical version as it's a lot easier to reference a book that you can have sitting on your desk and pull out anytime.

Nginx and Kareha (5)

1 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-10-20 14:49 ID:vcQSD2Tb

Hey all,

I got the basic Kareha pl files / perl in general to execute on Nginx with the following block of code:

location ~ \.pl$ {
try_files $uri $uri/ index.html;
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/fcgiwrap.socket;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;

however attempts to render pages such as /test/ render a 404 error as there is no file/directory literally called obviously. There is, accordingly, a file called ./res/1697812648.html that was properly created. How do I make kareha work? I'm assuming rewrites are involved, but I don't know how to do this.

2 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-10-20 16:45 ID:Heaven

Here's what's in my config:

location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ $uri.html =404;
autoindex off;
location ~ \.pl {
gzip off;
include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_NAME /var/www/$fastcgi_script_name;
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/fcgiwrap.socket;

Not sure if hardcoding the script path is correct, but it worked for me.

3 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-10-20 17:01 ID:vcQSD2Tb

i feel like this is close:

location ~ \.pl(/|$) {
fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.pl)(/.*)$;
try_files $uri $uri/ index.html;
fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;
fastcgi_param PATH_TRANSLATED $document_root$fastcgi_path_info;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_NAME $fastcgi_script_name;
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/fcgiwrap.socket;

Still can't figure out how to actually view though, still getting 404 errors.

Maker of ‘smart’ chastity cage left users’ emails, passwords, and locations exposed (5)

1 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-09-03 04:47 ID:Sxfg701g

A company that makes a chastity device for people with a penis that can be controlled by a partner over the internet exposed users’ email addresses, plaintext passwords, home addresses and IP addresses, and — in some cases — GPS coordinates, due to several flaws in its servers, according to a security researcher.

This is not the first time hackers exploit vulnerabilities in sex toys for men, in particular chastity cages. In 2021, a hacker took control of people’s devices and demanded a ransom.

“Your cock is mine now,” the hacker told one of the victims, according to a researcher who discovered the hacking campaign at the time.

The average computer should run for at least 25 years, just stop running bloated shit and it'll be fine. NetBSD/Alpine Linux, suckless-like programs, and making webdevs face the wall should do the trick. Heck, I'll argue technological progress should have ended with the Pentium 3, computers can just do the stuff we do today (just with less fancy graphics boohoo, don't need anymore than software rendering at 640x480) anyway.

I'm glad that sharing that in this thread moved you so. As well as that there are others here that at the very least believe in some type of principals with understanding just how "off" everything is now days. I'm only sorry that I'm just now replying back to you as it's been a little while.

That's really good, also encryption is an absolute must. The more people that refuse a smartphone the better, sadly there will never be enough of us to really validate a "movement" of sorts. But hopefully at the very least the idea will seed itself to another possibly reading this now or in the future along with any other information that they have come across online to take even further initiative for digital privacy awareness. I do the same with learning how things work on the very least a basic level. Ironically knowing more about the functionalities of a smartphone than a hefty majority of users. To hate or avoid something you need to at the very least understand exactly why you are doing so. Sometimes I feel like being interested in technology is a gift and a curse simultaneously. On the subject of your age, that seems to me that it's really the last age group that got to experience life before everything was warped as to understand fundamentally what was going on around them as well.

It was just so ridiculous at the sheer reaction that people had over everything and still continue to in many places with the politicization of covid. There was times I'll admit I thought about wearing a mask just for the privacy. I just didn't want to legitimize things further even appearing to be as you put it part of the cattle farm going along with it. I was already hesitant over vaccines once they were forcing new vaccines to high school students threatening them with not being able to graduate if they didn't receive them. Thinking how fucked up that was and if I had still been in school during all of that I would have just dropped out. Nobody should have the right to force any type of injection of anything inside of you especially with intimidating, threatening, and/or demonizing someone along with it.

Happens every single time with pictures, I'll simply never understand their mentality in sharing everything especially personal family photos with a bunch of fake "friends" on their shitty Facebook accounts or any other social media platform. Perhaps that's the real virus and "pandemic" that people should have been worrying about for all of these years. It's just sad and disheartening that people can't see how controlled they really are. You can only imagine the confused looks that I get when I tell people in public that I don't even own a cell phone. Which is another thing, it's so frustrating that almost every single purchase for anything they want to ask you for a phone number and an email address. I always say, I don't have one to both. Like I'm going to give them that kind of information. Even in the 90s anyone with half a brain should have been able to deduce what these sleazy corporations were up to.

That's simply the reality of it. They just don't care. People don't care about anything anymore. Not a fucking thing! Can't accept the reality that is crumbling all around them. And again, I despise the whole "I have nothing to hide" mentality that mostly is associated with it. I've tried for years myself with people I one time really cared about and wanted to help them. I tried to show others that there was other ways to use the internet. The internet is a lot bigger than just a few "apps on a phone". People have also lost the drive to explore the web as they once did. I still come across a ton of new interesting websites every single time I sit down at my computer. It's not this extremely hard thing to do. Just like with a lot of other mediums the internet and true hobbyists of it are a dying breed. You just can't relate with the userbase anymore. Same goes with anime and video games as two more prime examples. It's to no surprise that everyone suffers depression constantly obsessing over nostalgia of "the good old days". What's even more sad is the fact nobody wants to take action to attempt to make anything like "the good old days". Like I had mentioned I used to help run a few small forums and I've hosted a bit of my own personal webpages over the years. Plan on working on a couple of new ones here soon. Would like to make an updated webring page since I took my other one down a few years ago.

Compartmentalizing is a very good practice, combining it with a good threat model, and proper OPSEC naturally. Having specific VMs for specific tasks along with anonymizing network protocols. Getting some decent hardware to help you. OpenWRT or OPNsense compatible routers would be a nice touch as well. I'm not against VPNs but that's another mistake a lot of people make in thinking it completely protects them. I could go on and on about other measures to take. Something I have been wondering for a while is since the internet has been getting completely assblasted with censorship and most people being completely retarded, will people like us eventually just move over to fully staying on something such as Tor or i2p for an example?

YES, YES, and ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY YES!!! That's what all of these fucking moronic dumbass people are already doing each and everyday. Getting pissed on, shit on, and fucked in their loose gaping assholes leaking nasty shit and cum from these technocratic overlord elites.

I really hope our pocket communities can survive and that we can maintain some sense of progress with continuing our work even if it's just small things such as our convictions that we uphold and share our knowledge to attempt to enlighten the next group of drifters who stumble upon our corners of the web. It does make me quite sad about not being able to find people IRL to connect with who really understands. Almost a cruel fate that we can't escape from. You're right though, smaller communities is the last bastion of hope. Thank you, for those kind words and taking the time to write back to me. I'm glad that I'm also not alone in seeing things the way that they are knowing that there's an alternate way to live online that's not only better but more practical for our "digital" survivial in these weird dystopian do I dare say, cyberpunk times.

Still using decade old hardware daily. Most programs usually have an older version that still work and sometimes you get respectable programmers that still support legacy systems. Only real issue I've had was a government related online ID program that only works on the newer versions of wangblows or the latest dumbphones, but there's usually some alternative ID method that is a bit more inconvenient. I'll probably get a new computer when those new mega cache CPUs specifically made for AI computations become more afforable.

Ask yourselves, do we really need any more computing power to just browse the web, listen to music, watch videos in 1080p, and play some graphically good enough games between now and 10, 20, or even 50 years time? Not really. A computer should serve a lifetime, programs considered complete, and hardware fixable. The benchmarkers are really just an extension of the marketing arm of the computing industrial complex.

I get you dude. I've felt the same way, I used to be on Discord only to stay in touch with my old friends, I thought that maybe they'd make an effort to email me so I gave them my address and left. I never got any email from them. And that's not even the first time this has happened where I lost a whole cluster of friends because they wouldnt bother to stay in contact through other mediums.
The most concerning thing to me isn't that normal people are dumbfucks, that's pretty normal. What really swept me off my feet was entering a CS course this year thinking that I'd meet other people like myself or even better than I, then finding out that nobody has anything more than a year of python experience, or playing with ubuntu, if they've even done either of that.
It fucks me off to no end, and makes me feel more alone because I cannot find a single person who I can maintain a conversation with where I'm not spoonfeeding them basic programming concepts.
maybe next year will be better?
Seriously though... these are meant to be the people who will be my work peers? who will have massive influence on software into the future? That makes me uneasy, because they are so disinterested and so ignorant.

Sometimes it feels like being the last one left on Earth after a horrible apocalypse. Aside from the brief moment of fresh air you might get reading posts here, you're probably only likely to find hypersexual furries with 6-figure incomes writing "blazingly fast" terminal emulators in Rust that only work properly on computers made after ~2009 with OpenGL ES 2.0 support or whatever (even though more capable terminal emulator programs have been a thing since the 1980s).

I think it's probably because most of the people "interested" in computers at the moment are actually much better at (and happier knowing about) business studies and sleazy marketing tricks than knowing how to design your own Arithmetic Logic Unit or program microcontrollers with a variety of different ISAs or anything like that. They don't really like or care about what a computer actually is and does, so they create countless marketable abstractions on top of it, which also conveniently helps fuel the infinite cycle of throwing away older computers that can't handle those abstractions and buying newer ones with even more pointless computational power.

That's probably why one of their favorite marketing buzzwords is "scalability," because they often only ever know how to scale up, not down. The complexity required to manage the kind of distributed computing used by vast data collection businesses like Google doesn't really work anywhere near as efficiently on a simpler, older computer even with smaller datasets, yet "scalability" is all people really seem to care about. It's great for business, and "computer scientists" -- at least nowadays -- are just fancier businessmen.

you've got to be retarded to use suckless

27 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2023-08-11 01:57 ID:vwoFm2jZ

I think the people who use Suckless are just gullible. They think minimalism is when you use a program that is only 5 lines of code long, but just so happens to depend on a thousand-gigabyte library that does all of the work instead. (See Suckless Surf, and the thousands of clones that all do the same thing poorly)

They like their convenient "truths," so calling configuration files "bloat" is fine but the moment they're confronted with an actual gigantic source of bloat that would require actual effort and thought to replace, they'll just shrug their shoulders and go back to complaining about how scrollbars are the real source of all evil or something. To make matters worse, a lot of them think they're special computer geniuses because Suckless taught them how to run a compiler every time they edit a file, as if changing an integer value in the source code is some kind of monumental cognitive load.

Good luck getting their programs to run on an old Pentium II, let alone configuring them when you have to run the whole compiler over and over again. Having a lower LoC figure to flaunt is apparently far more important to them than programs that actually work. There's a term for this I think, "Chickenshit Minimalism."
