Polish companies have been the predominant source of our recent uptime. However, Cogent's CEO seems directly invested in shutting us down. I have had multiple run ins with Cogent and this is their most aggressive.

Usually the Tier 1 ISPs have censored the Kiwi Farms by simply refusing to broadcast my IP addresses. However, since Liz Fong-Jones has been successful in censoring the Internet this way, I no longer even try using my IPs.

This time, Cogent has directly instructed a customer of theirs to stop providing us - by name, through the customer's own IP addresses - networking infrastructure.

No company has done this until now. This is the most invasive, direct actioning from any ISP thus far.

If you are in the industry you need to make it absolutely clear to Cogent that you intend to move your business elsewhere.

Just to confirm, Cogent's CEO is directly forcing two customers to drop us, not just one.

There is now precedent for this to be done to ANY WEBSITE that some unelected fatcat deems unpopular, and not only that, to force other companies to do so.

Is dlss3.5 a meme?


It's a pretty good idea but the implementation is awful.

The end result ends up looking like they applied a paintbrush filter, not unlike those free image upscaling sites.

The AGO has confirmed it has received complaints from Incognet and Crunchbits and that the complaints fall under the scope of their office. I am filing mine this week.

Residents of Washington may be needed soon.

Edit 1: Small update but when we tried to route another /48 off my subnet it was also blocked immediately before ever being pushed live as an AAAA record. In short, this means the company is actively hawking my subnets and terminating them as soon as they go up to deliberately deprive Washington residents of Internet access to websites of their choice.


Edit 2: Actually, they blocked my /32, which means Hurricane Electric is blocking 65,536 network blocks containing 65,536 subscriber blocks each with each subscriber block containing 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 possible addresses. With this number, I could assign each gram of the Earth's total mass 74 IP addresses each. They have done this specifically to accomplish keeping Washington residents off the Kiwi Farms.

AI Language models already pass turing tests + your average internet user speaks like a dyslexic four year old. Not to mention the OF "model" who's already proven a bot can replace human interaction.

No Aliexpress GPU aren't worth the risk because a large number of the budget ones are just older cards that have been flashed. Aliexpress is good for CPUs tho if you don't mind being sent test units/ex business parts.

Has anyone here used Haiku? What do you think of it?
Personally, I've tried it only a bit in virtual machines before, and it's kinda comfy, but I can't say for sure because I didn't test it for too long. But I think it may possibly be enough just to watch anime and read manga, play open source games, and browse non-bloated websites.


BeOS was a very interesting operating for the time, but it’s features are pretty commonplace nowadays imo


Honestly, it's not something you should be trying to use as a daily driver today. You're better off using Debian or Fedora

Is Intel arc a meme?

An a770 le might cost 50$ more than the rx6700 in my country, but it’s got twice the tflops, 30% more transistors and 4 gigs of extra ram. It’s clearly the superior card when it comes to performance, so I’m not sure why I shouldn’t go Intel this year.

I checked one of those performance comparisons on YouTube, and it absolutely destroys team red in 4k and ray tracing, and provides pretty similar performance in older games.


The performance is still a bit worse; I don’t think it makes sense to spend money on what could just be an empty promise.


Arc has a lot of future potential as a platform but that really depends on their dedication to consistent driver updates. My biggest issue with Arc is that their kernel isn't opensource…

Imageboards are only a type of internet forum. Do you think a new type could be made? What features would it have?
5 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



uhhh, a videoboard… I guess?


Reddit is literally the most popular internet forum whether we like it or not.


i remember there was an "audioboard" called audiochan, but the head admin shut it down for some reason.
the source code is on github if anyone wants to revive it:


That sounds very gimmicky but is interesting.


Most ordinary people these days want a slick user interface with lots of smooth edges, curves, and plain colors with a corporate memphis art style. Importantly, they want something that feeds their narcissism and allows them to express their identity through an avatar and a bunch of friends with all this including their irl info. Lastly, they are actually profitable tech companies whereas imageboards often run at a loss and are just community projects, so there's no way you'd get financing for an internet forum to compete with social media.

> I don't think there'll be a mainstream internet forum, ever,
2channel, the grandaddy of all chan sites, was as mainstream as Reddit in Japan and the country's biggest internet community until it split in 2014. At one time, it was the biggest site on the internet and it was an anonymous textboard/BBS.

All I can think of is an anonymous version of Reddit with the kind of attitude to moderation you see on some of the better imageboards. But it would still have to have that memphis art style and have the look and feel of a Silicone Valley tech company.

I doubt imageboards or internet forums will ever be as big as they used to be and anonymous 2chan/4chan type sites are on the way out. Vast majority of gen Z just don't trust those places and see them negatively.

I paid 2000 bucks for one of those back in the day and I can’t even replace the fucking battery. You have to somehow remove the peeling and cum stained alcantara without ripping it (ifixit couldn’t do it), and then you have to remove every component because the battery is connected UNDER the motherboard, which is a lot harder said than done considering that every connector goes under its own spot welded RF shield. That probably means that the fcc is going to take away your newly repaired laptop once you start it up.

It has a 0 repair ability score for a reason



My brother in Christ, why are you promoting misinformation? It's no harder than replacing the LCD in an older pre-retina Mac, all you've got to do is use a heat gun and craft knife.


That is to say the repairability score is a meme based on consumer backlash to closed systems (otherwise ifixit wouldn't be selling battery replacements and scoring the job as medium dificulty).

Anything beside good OPSEC, GPG keys, not leaking ur own shit and such?
Asking for a friend ;)


Its pretty much honey pots and stuff.
All the real shit is invite only and R really hard to get onto so all the motherfuckers talking about darknet shit R mostly talk about random bullshit. So unless u have access to an invite only site u wont find anything at all


hello, where do you get that pic from ?. is it a vgame ? what is the name ?


If you're asking that question you shouldn't be looking at the Dark Web. Learn how to grow your own and source your seeds from your dealer/friend you are already buying weed from or better yet don't break the law.

Any recommended sites/tools for easily making my own 4chan-style imageboard for free?


File: 1672852695516.jpg (14.92 KB, 280x280, 1671633462547-0.jpg)

for free your best shot is gonna be self-hosted on an old pc, using mySQL. vichan (what comfychan is based on) as well as lainchan are both open source on github, so they're recommended. also since you're asking the question to begin with, i'd just go with ubuntu desktop for the host server, its not ideal for professional use but the gui will make it easier for you
landchad.net also has some good resources on self hosting.
note that it won't be 100% free as you'll have to buy a domain, unless you're fine with the site just being your ip address, not a problem if its just friends but for public use thats not a great idea.


i should also note, the reason i recommend self hosting is that i haven't personally seen any 100% free webhosting services, but also i haven't looked into it so fuck me i guess

I fucking hate fang companies.
Most of them are pretty much cartoon supervillain conglomerates.

I respect google because despite all of their spyware, data collecting, lawsuit worthy bullshit, they still put out good quality products such as android os and their amazing suite of tools such as docs, slides, drive, calendar, keep etc.

But the rest of these companies just put out bullshit, such as Microsoft with the downfall of windows.


>But the rest of these companies just put out bullshit, such as Microsoft with the downfall of windows

desktop windows has never made much money. all of these but netflix and apple get most of their money from expensive software, hardware, or advertising services.

What is the best window manager for Arch linux. I've always been interested in ricing but have never fully gotten into it.
I have always been drawn to dwm for some reason.
If you got any recomendations on ricing or windows managers that would be highly appreciated .


File: 1671713092326.jpg (172.1 KB, 1065x698, ezgif-1-5666de6387.jpg)

i3 is by far the most popular when it comes to showing off, closely followed by other pretentious tiling window managers.
I personally love NsCDE's lainpilled aesthetics, but ricing is supposed to be personal and unique, so i can't really give you any advice. Look at all of the options offered to you and make your choice. Remember: looks are always cooler than functionality.


i like awesomewm, it's the best


Follow an aesthetic and it'll turn out great. I like to start with a wallpaper and then work from there
