Anyone here interested in a new version of 2ch for us gaijins? Anonymous 07/17/2021 (Sat) 06:37:52 [Preview] No. 14794 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
So someone on /jp/ created a Western version of Ayashii World (sadly offline - RIP) and it got me wondering - we haven't had a true Western equivalent to 2ch ever since world2ch imploded all those years ago, and it's high time we got one. So what do you think? Would you post on a new Western version of 2ch?

Australia's Tactic Anonymous 06/27/2021 (Sun) 07:46:09 [Preview] No. 14775 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In NSW last year, I was made stupider by the Australian Federal Government, and I would like to warn others about this tactic as it is used by Australia. If you have an enemy, or in this case, a perceived enemy, you can't beat them up without an investigation, you can't kill them without an investigation, but if you were to make them 20% less intelligent you completely remove their ability to do what they intend to do, and that is what Australia did to me. I have no idea about their motivations, but that's what they did. Keep in mind, even something as simple as lead powder bought from your local hardware or online for $20 can make someone less intelligent and act out violently as well, so this tactic can be done by anyone at all on earth.

I contacted the CIA, FBI, consulate, embassy, and drove over 7,000kms to Pine Gap to whine in person, all to no avail. I have not even been contacted about this, despite complaining 24/7, sending over 100k emails, and going to everyone including giving letters to the Chinese consulate etc. Therefore as this tactic is 100% effective, and there is no chance of ever being caught, I want to warn others to watch out for Australia using this tactic on them, as they will have no recourse once the attack is carried out, therefore prevention is the only way.

Keep in mind, if there is a criminal group being investigated they could easily make the investigators stupider as a tactic, or if there is a trail then they could make the prosecutor stupider, and it would be undetectable and set them free more effectively than killing the person. That's one reason why some of the thousands of people I reported this to should have cared, but when you have Australia blocking and spoofing and lying it's impossible to get attention.

As it is, it's been over a year since I originally started doing all I can to get attention to this issue. I spent 6 months being tortured in NSW, and the last 6 months in NT being kept broke, I have only recently been allowed to get a job, and this Friday my last financial link to the USA was cut off, I was hit with a fradulent charge and forced to cancel my only US debit card. I am now completely exposed in every way to the very people who lowered my IQ and tortured me for 6 months in NSW, and the people who kept me broke or busy for 6 months here in the NT (as if I want anything besides to be able to move the fuck on!!!!) perhaps operating under the assumption that if I am busy or broke I will be less likely to be believed or get help. It's quite the opposite, all I have been begging for every day is to be allowed to achieve a middle class income so I can start to heal from the trauma.

There's a lot more than this, I live at Unit 22, 3 Larapinta Drive, Gillen, NT, 0870, and my name is Max Freedom Moussa Pollard. Please do not contact Australia, they will use it as an excuse to hurt me further. It's been a very very very long time and believe me. Please note I am totally fine now, merely annoyed and as you can imagine it's not the kind of thing you will ever get over, so I'm mad. Once I have a middle class income I will be able to start the healing process, but until then I am very much PTSD. Totally safe, secure and happy at the moment besides the fact I have been kept completely broke, and I'm now cut off from all US finance on top of that.

It goes without saying that nobody will complain as much as me about this, and I doubt anyone besides me would notice, therefore taking my case as an example, this is a crime nobody will ever be caught for. This is a crime with no chance of being caught for, ever. It can be done on anyone 1000x ways, it's evil.

though, news sites censor quite a ton to keep the normies under control, would be unsurprising if they censor or twist your words for their liking... maybe if you license your documentation under cc-by-sa-3.0, cc-by-nc-nd-3.0, or etc. it'll help on them not manipulating/twisting your words I suppose

Software guru McAfee found DEAD in Spanish prison Anonymous Board owner 06/24/2021 (Thu) 00:09:12 [Preview] No. 14760 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
>Former antivirus magnate John McAfee was found dead in his prison cell in Barcelona just hours after a Spanish court approved his extradition to the US on tax evasion charges, authorities in Madrid have told national media.
>McAfee, 75, was found in his cell at the Sant Esteve Sesrovires jail on Wednesday evening, Spanish media reported, citing an official statement from the Ministry of Justice. Guards and prison medical staff intervened and attempted resuscitation, but to no avail, the ministry said.
>Investigators have been dispatched to the jail to probe the cause of death, but “everything indicates it could be a suicide,” the ministry added.
>Earlier Wednesday, a Spanish court ruled to allow his extradition to the US on charges of evading taxes between 2014 and 2018, which could have landed him in prison for up to 30 years. US authorities also had civil charges pending against McAfee for an estimated $13 million in profits from cryptocurrency schemes. McAfee was arrested in Spain in October 2020 and held in jail as a “flight risk” pending his extradition hearing.

CPU/hardware backdoors, coming up with solutions .... Anonymous 06/26/2021 (Sat) 11:09:26 [Preview] No. 14763 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
usually, it would require to externally/internally flash a libreboot bios and/or remove Intel ME with me_cleaner then install a fully free system such as parabola, so in this way the CIA can't glow on that computer.

fsf's ryf approved notebooks meet the requirements of freedom in hardware. sadly those resources aren't so accessible.. buying a ThinkPad made before intel ME and internally flashing libreboot (specifically X60) seems to be the easiest way to replicate what fsf did. in which sadly I couldn't find any X60 out there.

RISC-V powered computers are also an alternative, though I don't know any computer/notebook that has a RISC-V CPU .

ARM powered computers such as raspberry pi 4 seems to be a safe alternative since I haven't seen anyone whistleblowing about backdoors nor spyware on their hardware nor software, is it safe though ? what are your thoughts on this matter ?

ive been thinking on building a raspberry machine for some time now.

i personally like the idea of having like a sort of motherboard for multiple computing modules since the rpi foundation released their modules. this would make it possible to have a powerful computer in a fist-size box

the only thing stopping me from doing that is that theres is still no commercial solution for powering the machine from 18650 batteries, if someone could come up with a scalable solution to this i would definetely give it a try. and here i mean complete and efficient power management like charging and also an input for power from ac outlets.

would you care to explain what intel me is?
is it the new secure boot method that comes preinstalled on the board chips?
excuse my ignorance on this subject

a riscv computer, hardware completely 100% open source, though is it also free? suppose it's even better than those thinkpads, since now there is hardware source code, we can just see and change what we don't like and do anything, effectively putting an end to surveillance.

into RFID Anonymous 05/09/2021 (Sun) 17:49:45 [Preview] No. 14721 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
So I want to get into RFID. I'm no programmer, I'm basicaly a low-level IT support guy, with very basic code understanding (studied C, Html/CSS and java just a bit). I'm interested in RFID about my company's vending machine, but also about subdermal implants, and maybe in the future for malicious intents.
Can anyone point me on some ressources, or even just share some RFID dumps I could study/compare?

Anonymous 05/09/2021 (Sun) 18:26:58 [Preview] No.14722 del
I know it's not quite as simple as the fear-mongers want to present it as.

At work, all our items are tagged, now instead of just an external barcode but also an internal RFID tag. Even buying them 100K at a whack they were $0.40/ea.
And fifty or so people were set aside to go through and tag everything we own.
Three years later as we move equipment from office to office we start finding errors. Serious errors. Turns out our tracking vendor had settled on one particular tag format, our software didn't have that so we'd chosen something "pretty close" but our vendor went through a small, internal reconstruction and came out using their information a bit differently. Our software couldn't read their tagged information and it took months of experts scratching their heads to figure out that "pretty close" wasn't close enough.

SO the big bosses sent out emails that "hey, you guys, you've been doing it wrong all this time shame on you."
And politely refused to take note of how those bosses' trained people set up all our equipment on what turned out to be a misunderstanding.

Reading the tag isn't all that hard -- any antenna can energize and read off the contents. But you might need a human to interpret the results, especially if the tag format they're actually using is different from the one they publish that they agreed to use.

Sorry I can't be of more specific help, but searching out the high-level tag datasheets might be an okay start.

Richard Matthew Stallman is based.

Anonymous 05/14/2021 (Fri) 10:06:09 [Preview] No.14730 del
Stallman is most definitely a based dude to whom the entire open source movement owes a great deal. It is unfortunate that he did not pick the time and place to get up on a soapbox about the proper use of the word "assault" wisely, resulting in a particularly disasterous kerfuffle.

The letter is well written, especially this part: "He is usually more focused on the philosophical underpinnings, and pursuing the objective truth and linguistic purism, while underemphasising people’s feelings on matters he’s commenting on. This makes his arguments vulnerable to misunderstanding and misrepresentation, something which we feel is happening in the open letter calling for his removal."

Programmers who tend toward linguistic purism should also strive to recognize the conditions under which technically sound but potentially abrasive statements could make their arguments more vulnerable to misrepresentation and try to avoid doing that.

Based ninjas can be as pedantic as the best of them while also having some skills in diplomacy to help woo the more sensitive and less rigorous to a technically correct perspective. There are benefits to be had in studying the quirks of different instruction sets.

without Richard Stallman, GNU/Linux distros wouldn't exist, freedom wouldn't exist in computing(therefore in most of ours lifes, don't you value freedom?). and "open source" was created by some members of the free-software-movement who didn't agree with its philosophical views and only wanted its practicality and better way of development (so "open source" also wouldn't exist). the GPL2 is what keeps the linux Kernel safe. he should be leader of fsf

I like GNU and its utils and its well-made commands. GPL is also great, examples of GOOD free software: zsnes (the BEST and most NOSTALGIC SNES emulator), PPSSPP (BEST PSP emulator), redream (BEST dreamcast emulator), KDE (best desktop imo), GNOME (also good), gimp, krita and etc etc. they're all in GPL, many free software are the best in quality. tor is in BSD license BUT it's also free software, if richard didn't start free software movement, free software in other licenses (such as in BSD) also wouldn't exist (btw I'm using tor, thanks for not blocking me >_<;*)

The big PC makers all have competent engineers and they occasionally will produce a good product, particularly for their top spec machine. For some reason people really latch onto this concept with Lenovo, but generally ignore other excellent pro grade hardware, notably from HP and Dell. I've worked with these three brands and have to say on average the HP are the best, followed by Dell, with Lenovo taking third.

You can certainly point to exceptions of this trend, and there's good and band from any group, but on average you'll pay more for less with Lenovo.

With all that shit talking out of the way, the idea that should be lauded is buying a top spec machine used rather than the walmart special garbage new. You can do this with practically any brand and come out ahead, especially when you figure that even if something needs to be replaced it won't break your budget.
