Does anyone here actually use this? Be honest. I feel like I miss out on a lot of stuff and can make a lot more friends if I decide to use this, but tinfoil autists on /g/ keep shilling against it. It has pretty much become the standard for communication in most online communities so it feels like you will be harmed more for not using it than otherwise, I guess that is how it goes for most big proprietary products these days.

Intel Massive Leak Comrade 08/06/2020 (Thu) 20:10:28 No. 3902 [Reply] [Last]
Intel seems to have suffered a massive leak of about 17GB in size. It is named drop 1 so maybe more to come. magnet:?xt=urn:btih:38f947ceadf06e6d3ffc2b37b807d7ef80b57f21&dn=Intel%20exconfidential%20Lake%20drop%201

So what do these leaks even revolve around? Government collusion?

>>3897 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endorheic_basin >An endorheic basin (/ˌɛndoʊˈriː.ɪk/; also spelled endoreic basin or endorreic basin) is a drainage basin that normally retains water and allows no outflow to other external bodies of water, such as rivers or oceans, but converges instead into lakes or swamps, permanent or seasonal, that equilibrate through evaporation. They are also called closed or terminal basins or internal drainage systems or basins. Endorheic regions contrast with exorheic regions.[1] Endorheic water bodies include some of the largest lakes in the world, such as the Caspian Sea, the world's largest saline inland sea.[2] >Basins with subsurface outflows which eventually lead to the ocean are generally not considered endorheic;[3][4][5] they are cryptorheic.[6] >Endorheic basins constitute local base levels, defining a limit of erosion and deposition processes of nearby areas.[7]

How can "linux" full surrender to anything? The Linux kernel is not centrally operated. The kernel is supposed to be Free and Open source, so, I am skeptical of the farcrys over the horizon about linux "surrendering to the sjw's." At anyrate, it's not like linux is an imageboard. Linux is a community based around the Use and Development of the Linux Kernel. the more people use linux, even if they are sjw retards, the better and this is likely to turn the libshits onto linux. On the otherhand it could turn a lot of regular people off to linux, so, we will see. This is some mega retarded pr, though, that's for sure.

invidious is shutting down Comrade 08/02/2020 (Sun) 22:12:49 No. 3816 [Reply] [Last]
So the author quits the invidious project, so what now ? It seems that other instances https://instances.invidio.us/ will continue but according to https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=24024230 the hole project is being abandoned. Here's the not from the project author: >Stepping away from open source >Published August 1, 2020, tags: invidious >Starting September 1st, I'm shutting down the user-facing portion of https://invidio.us and stepping away from development. If you have an >account on the site, you can export your data here, which will allow you to import everything to another instance or self-host. >The API will continue to function until October 1st, to give time for any services relying on it to migrate to other solutions. If you're a patron on Liberapay, I would urge you to switch your donation to iv-org, as that will ensure it goes to the stewards of the project going forward. >At the time of this writing, the main Invidious instance has roughly 35,000 users. It's difficult for me to even begin to think of those as actual people, and not just a number. At that level, the amount of feedback I receive, which I would consider rather small in comparison to others I've seen, is overwhelming. It's demoralizing not being able to respond to all of it properly. Even more so when I've received something that deserves an involved response, but I haven't had the time to reply, which counter-intuitively means the best comments are least likely to receive any response. To echo antirez: it's crushing not being able to be "there" for people. >Lately, I've felt myself withdraw much more in return. For any project though, especially something that requires maintanence, it's difficult to actually "unplug" and mentally recharge. Turning off notifications has helped, but it's definitely taken its toll.

>>3888 >All distro websites tell you to use checksums Exactly. And any good distro has signed packages, so they fortunately assume their users could be attacked. It happened to Mint because of a wordpress vuln IIRC, so nothing to do with the distro itself. It's ridiculous to put so much blame on Mint project itself, wordpress is not some obscure amateur project of their own making. Much bigger scandal to me is how Arch Linux refused to sign their packages for so long, attacking anybody who pointed this out. This is the case where a distro itself was actually unthrustworthy, and not just because of incompetence but because of their attitude towards security.

smart contracts, chainlink, project cybersyn Comrade 08/02/2020 (Sun) 14:38:01 No. 3796 [Reply] [Last]
I see actual application for these things outside of capitalism, in fact maybe even a way to force us into a more socialist economy with the automation of accounting, resource management, lawyers, simple things like sending data to weather apps and the like. Just generally making life easier and will go hand in hand with the automation of many other jobs . In fact chile even tried to do something similar in the 70s under allende before he was assassinated but ultimately was never put into practice. Take a look at project cybersyn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Cybersyn , fascinating stuff. I would also like to leave you with this video, some of it is rather heady and may require the searching of definitions but i foun the history of contracts fascinating and inspiring. https://youtu.be/ufVyX7JDCgg on top of all of this, chainlink is an open source decentralized entity . Id love to hear ur thoughts, and i think this could be especially cool to any transhumanists around lol

>>3805 how would data be regulated and supplied to the people ? and what would the majority of people have as for use and the ability to easily parse for the data? only people working in certainf ields will find the data relevant which puts them in a position of power, i think relegating open source communist ai to parsing it would be better than human judgment a large amount of the time. maybe not at this exact moment, especially as we live and participate ina capitalist world at the moment , but in a communist technological society data would still be important. such as resource allegation . which is why i think project cybersyn was so revolutionary at the time , and still is in theory today.
