I think it's a good idea to archive internet people who aren't retarded spectacle enveloped types that the internet thread on leftypol makes fun of. Fredrik "not the Engles" Knudsen uploaded a new video and it's about international brewer heads putting poisons into wine to turn a profit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhN-o2ame-4 I really enjoy his stuff because it takes a fact based stance, it isn't just the video opinion essay garbage regularly vomited online disguised as material fact. It's a genuinely sourced thing and not a bunch of platitudes thrown together.

Anyone still browse 4chan? Anyone still post there with flair? Not encouraging brigading or anything, but it's kinda funny. I'll reply to something with a relativity benign comment and they'll get triggered really easy.

Used to browse /vr/, /tg/, /x/ and occasionally /v/. Nowadays I just check /vr/ every other week for a rush of nostalgia and that is it. >/x/ has completely turned into a /pol/ colony that only talks about pizzagate and other burger conspiracy theories, if you are like me and frequented it for spooky stories it's no longer the place for you The russian imageboard 2ch actually segregated its spooky board into /sn/ for creepy things, /mag/ for magic larping and /zog/ for conspiracy theories. /x/ badly needed that a couple years ago but there's nothing that can be done anymore >/tg/ has been on a downward spiral for a while, but at this point it's just 50/50 hornyposting and /pol/ bait. Not worth browsing anymore. I used to think removing quests was a good thing but now I'm rethinking it, it seems that turned off a lot of creative posters >/v/ is pretty self-explanatory >even /vr/, being a niche hobby board suffered pretty badly, it's deader than ever before and full of stupid children, /pol/fag "culture" leaks there too from time to time The worst part for me though is that 4chan shit leaks everywhere, even to foreign websites. At this point 2ch is unusable either outside of niche boards, it used to be pretty good and even better than 4chan at points, now it's overrun by cargo cultist children who think that acting like 4chan /pol/acks makes them cool. So even on 2ch you can't go anywhere without running into someone who gets triggered by absolutely everything and starts ranting about SJWs and jews. And if you call them out on it they'll say you're a newfag and it's imageboard culture, even though you've been using imageboards since before /pol/ or internet SJWs even existed. It's like an actual unironic cancer that spreads everywhere. But the sad reality is that there is simply no place for an imageboard oldfag to go anymore, everything has been politicized and turned into shit, and smaller boards have ceased to exist.
>>7558 >if you are like me and frequented it for spooky stories it's no longer the place for you yeah, no joke all that kind of user generated content has moved to places like reddit. but mention this and you get a revised history about how 4chan was always this shit and only leftist cucks say it was possible to post apolitically.
>>7558 >there is simply no place for an imageboard oldfag to go anymore I stopped going on 4chan in 2016 and never really frequented anything else so I'm over it by now. But goddamn it is a sad state of affairs imageboards are in.

I haven't visited 4chan in months and I haven't been a regular in years. The hobby boards are great for gathering recommendations, tools, sources, downloads, translations, and so on and so on, but after you've gotten what you were looking for, I don't see the point in going back there, except maybe to discuss some of your favorite media once or twice, because then it's all the same opinions over and over. Last time I was a regular I took part in a couple of /trash/ generals (comfier and bloggier than their original incarnations in their respective boards, contains cancer and the native furries/ERPers won't mess with your threads, but non-native generals are exceptionally prone to raids and spamming by individual schizos and trolls due to /trash/'s nature, which can spoil the experience and ruin a community beyond repair). Every two months or so I go on /adv/ to vent about some trivial shit nobody even reads. I don't feel the need to visit any of the hobby boards (or the site) at all anymore because it's exhausting and reading a bunch of threads about cartoons or anime or games I'm not even consuming is pointless, threads that have barely any discussion other than anti-SJW or e-celeb bait and porn/loli/waifuposting (mostly /v/ and /co/). The visible clash between newfags and bitter oldfags only makes things worse (which I find amusing tbh). Plus, I just hate how every subset of users within each big board feels superior to one another, like a hierarchy; in /a/ for example, there's shonen fans at the bottom, and within this group there are fans of different shonen series, the worst and most unapologetic probably being the DBZ autists. Then there's moe fans, "MANime" fags, hipsters, etc. Most of the /a/ userbase is incredibly elitist but lack any self-awareness; in reality they're all garbage who want everyone to have fun only according to their own standard, which is "everything is shit", so nobody must enjoy anything. And this is supposed to be the "best" out of the boards I've mentioned. Everyone hates each other in the biggest boards and that naturally gets tiring after years of only visiting that site. >>6903 >I do however go on hispachan and replace the "o" or "a" at the end of Spanish words that refer to people with "e" example amigos / amigas would change to amiges kek, based although the unironic forced use of the gender neutral "e" or "x" as in "latinx" still makes me cringe. Hmm, maybe you should try using the "x" next time and see what happens.
>>6897 > Always the same things over and over again like a broken record. I've noticed it on other boards too. It all becomes so boring.

Yesterday thanks to some anon I in SU thread I have rediscovered a childhood classic cartoon of mine, Malo Korrigan and the Space Trackers. I just watched the first two episodes and it really does live up to the nostalgia. Also I think I really wasn't mistaken that it was based as fuck: the very first episode has an underlying anti-corporate-imperialism theme, showing corporations muscling out any local competition, treating workers like shit and doing an imperialist genocide, and if I recall correctly, it only gets more based from here. Also the main casts ship has big red star painted on the side for gods sake. However there is a problem. This show seems to be really obscure (like only 300 people looked for the English first episode obscure). The YouTube channel with English episodes has big gaps between episodes. Then there are some episodes posted on daily motion, but again, with holes. The only full series I found was in French, and I can't understand it, nor have the time to learn. So, can anyone give any tips on how to find the full English version?
>>8792 I could get motivated to translate one episode or two
>>8793 I'd prefer not to exploit a comrade like that. If nothing comes up here I'll try asking the same thing over at 4/co/, though I never used 4chan apart from raiding /pol/, so I don't know if they deal in such topics as finding obscure shows.
>>8792 I was that anon, you're welcome, I didn't see your reply. Unfortunately I haven't seen the show in a while so the only current online source I can find in the past minute (in english) is Daily Motion. Russian Servers ought to have some torrents though if you check. >>8794 >exploit a comrade It's not exploitation is helping one another. He isn't losing anything, is likely enjoying himself and sharing it.
>>1424 Was thinking about Asterix the other day. Most European representations of Romans in art (films etc) have them as the antagonists while the celts gauls etc are the uncivilised other. Asterix seems to be one of the few representations where the Romans are the other.

post novel recommendations, I’ll start The Elementary Particles is a great book, it deals with themes of social breakdown and alienation. On the downside the epilogue is fucking retarted, and the main character is a bit of a reactionary, but it makes sense in context...

The dune books are great. They get a lot of hate now due to anti-hype but the world building is amazing and the 4th one: God Emperor of Dune, is fucking great Currently going through the dark tower series, just finished the first book. Its cool
>>8746 Do you got and .pdfs of Whatever I think or Virginie Despentes’s work?
>>8756 You can find them on libgen.is (searching by fiction). Houellebecq novel is just Whatever, my bad.
>>8753 I've only read the first two Dune, I loved the world building but couldn't get into the new age and mystical shit. But it's interesting to have that next to political plots.
>>8758 It gets a lot better imo, the third is were a lot of people fall off bit its more off closing up everyone's arc as the story moves on Tiny spoilers; the 4th, considered the best skips a few centuries. The less I say the better, but someone turns into a giant worm God, its a very trippy book

Basically I want to buy a new phone. What's the best type to buy, one that won't spy on me and steal my information, something that's cheap, but has good quality. Something that isn't an android.
I hear Huaweii is linked to China or something, so is that any good?

Is it just me or are most jobs in IT utter bullshit? I am not referring to "Bullshit Jobs", the book. It's something different. Take say twitter. The mobile twitter front-end in particular. What is twitter? Chunks of text with occasional hyperlinks, pictures and videos. There are also a couple of forms, to register, to submit a tweet, to report stuff, etc. So again, it needs text, pictures, links and forms. All of that is supported by HTML directly, i.e. it doesn't even require a single line of javascript to accomplish that. But judging from the fact that on an old phone twitter may take half a minute or more to load or it may actually fail to load, or freeze up while loading, and taking in account how generally sluggish it is, it's obivous that it isn't plain html. In fact, there's probably a good dozen of megabytes of JS and CSS code, and that is after compression. The code that nobody every asked for. "Yeah I'd really like some people to spend their time writing thousands (?) of lines of code just to provide me with a site with the exact same functionality but with way poorer performance" - said no user ever. Bloated frontends should actually push users away it'd seem, and they probably do to some degree, that's why e.g. nitter and invidio.us exist. And this doesn't only apply to twitter. The same with youtube (there exist even more alternative front-ends, hooktube and invidious and there probably are more). The same with the vast majority of sites on the web, actually. There are countless frameworks like React or Angular, that achieve the same thing as can be achieved using regular HTML and some js, but they make websites slower AND require people to develop them AND people to learn them. And by the way AFAIK nitter or invidious devs aren't paid anything for creating the sites, they might receive donations but that's it isn't it So who profits from the labour of those who develop such sites? Why would the capitalists behind e.g. twitter be interested in a) Paying more people b) Making the site less attractive to users, thus potentially reducing their profits.

>>6376 The internet is a Chrome walled garden now, haven't you heard? Of course, it's not a monopoly like IE and microsoft!
>>6377 Mozilla is basically google's puppet I think. Gecko is increasingly more akin to Chromium. And even then it cannot render such a popular site. The entire internet is controlled but a single company. What a motherfucking dystopia we live in. Frightening.
>>5821 >All of that is supported by HTML directly, i.e. it doesn't even require a single line of javascript to accomplish that. It sounds to me like you think, you only need to use HTML to make twitter, which is obviously not true. For twitter database is a must, also you need backend language for communicating with database, I mean stuff that is fetching certain data (for example all posts by certain user) and sending to display in views. This backend language cannot be HTML, it can be JS, or any other programming language. Thing is: database comunnication is widely known as bottleneck in many web applications, I mean its a thing that is causing web app to be slow. So if you say that JS front end rendering is bottleneck of twitter, then I am asking: How do you know that bottleneck is not caused by database communication which is not related to JS?
>>6966 Because nitter loads way faster while it should actually have to spend more time fetching data from twitter than twitter itself.
