This is a good sign for the future, fellow citizens of the intarwebs. The decentralized internet looks like it might become a thing. One of the biggest obstacles, distributing video, is being tackled by a site called bitchute. Instead of the videos being hosted by the site, they are distributed through torrents that decode and stream as they are received.

The neat part is that there is no client. Your web browser is the client. It's a pretty cool (working) concept. Not sure when it goes live to everyone, but there are invited users that seem to be using it with success.


Layout is similar to youtube, which is probably a good thing. Will have to wait and see how easy it is to setup a torrent server for it.


This is all well and good, but the question is if they can pull people from YouTube to their site.


They don't say how they get around some of the obvious problems with torrents, for example that if everone with the torrent is offline there is no way to access it. Unless this becomes really easy to use, share from, and upload to, it will never touch YouTube.
The in browser torrent client is cool though.


If you read the FAQ it clearly states that they also host conntent, but that the cost of distribution is much cheaper due to the seeding. Makes the most popular videos the ones that aren't eating all your bandwidth. Would be interesting to host a seebox for it.

nothing fancy



>Ublock instead of Ublock Origin


That's because UO isn't consistent with blocking elements. I'm not sacrificing control.

What is LynxChan?
LynxChan is a chan engine developed with performance, efficiency and flexibility in mind. It powers several chans ( http://lynxhub.com/lynxchan/res/285.html ) and contains a number of community-created front-ends ( https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan-ThirdPartyFrontEnds ).
It offers a number of features, including:
-File deduplication, saving bandwidth, disk space and allowing users to post files without uploading them.
-Overboard, aggregating posts from the whole site on a single place so users can browse more easily.
-Multi-board, allowing users to aggregate posts from only selected boards.
-Extensive anti-spam and anti-flood tools that aim to both impede and reduce damage without inconveniencing users.
-Add-on support, which enables features to be added without the need for a fork.
-Modular front-end and language pack allows for the site owner to customize it without having to change the actual software.

LynxChan 1.8 main addition is multi-lingual support.
This feature allows site owners to specify alternative language packs and front-ends and associate languages to them.
When an user visits the site, the engine seamlessly picks an available language from the user and serves content in that language.

This version brings some other minor features so far:

the worst website ever


I'm a Win 10 fag but I want to start using some Linux distro. I decided to use Ubuntu because I'm a beginner.

I want to still keep my current OS because I'm not ready to completely switch (so dual boot I guess) and I want to install Ubuntu on a USB.

What is the best tutorial on how to do this?

Once upon a time I shared one drive between Redhat, W98, OS/2 Warp, and Novel Netware server 3.11. LILO handled them all with easy grace.

I gave up on crazy dual (and multi) boot partitioning schemes ages ago.

As long as I can boot things directly from USB, Micro$oft can fuckify their own boot loader (and filesystem, but that's another story for another day) to their hearts content.


Rufus is probably the software you want to be able to make the bootable USB on Windows. It's really good. Frankly, I like it more than unetbootin, as I've had the latter fuck up on me before. Rufus always gets the job done.


start with ubuntu, you have installation instructions on official website, i started with ubuntu, great experience for beginners


I would recommend this guys piece of advice but you should probably try out different DE and see what fits your taste

Desktop enviroment



Not exactly the same but if you install windows after you install Linux it blows up the bootloader so you have to use a linux cd to fix it.

I'm too cheap for records so I buy tapes


I still have a lot of games on discs. I have some CDs of music, too. In fact, it's a big thing to me that a laptop I purchase have an optical drive. If it doesn't, then I probably won't purchase it.


I recently got an Mgła vinyl. You can see everything I have by going to


I don't really have too much, most of it is CDs, I only have 4 vinyl.


I do, my dad left me some Bee Gees and Queen vinyls, they are pretty good

Did some cleaning. This is how I legitimately labeled my floppies. I hope something good is on it.

What old tech do you have?

Oh hell yeah!



Anon delivers!

I can't read the signs. That place looks awesome. I would love to wander around it. How many Game&Watch units do you guys have? In one of the pictures it looks like you have a couple of different ones.


What's your favorite thing in the museum?


File: 1463913550944.jpg (8.98 KB, 252x252, 1412427311855.jpg)

The signs are in Italian, so I didn't bother focusing on them. If you are referring to the ones of piture #3, they are lyrics of songs that mention videogames, and the one with the magnifier indicates the shelves entirely dedicated to graphical adventures.

Yes, they are Game & Watch. We got about a dozend different models, and also some ripoff ones (Play & Time, anyone?)

Probably the Radikal Bikers cabinet (I love that game), sadly it's currently out of service. Luckily we have a group of people that know their shit, so maybe, someday, it will be back to work ;-;

Another cabinet we are proud of is Konami Fighting Mania (the one with the paddles to punch), it's not in the pictures but will be in the video.


So whats on the floppy?


Anyone else here into traditional western music? (I'm not saying "classical" because technically that's just one specific time period)

Fags who never delved deeper than Bach/Mozart/Beethoven (not that their music is shit, it's just entry-tier) need not apply.

Embed related, a piano concerto by a friend of Beethoven.


you lost me with "traditional". So you mean jazz?


Jazz is cool but not what I had in mind. Perhaps I should say European; jazz would go under American (still western though, and also influenced at its beginning by the European pals).

Oh also you can hear proto-jazz in Beethoven's 32th (and last) sonata, in the 2nd movement. You often find some ideas that later genres are based upon in way older music.


Here's a work by Gesualdo from his settings of the Tenebrae. He was an Italian prince around the turn of the 17th century who murdered his wife when he found out she was cheating on him, and spent most of his later life in isolation in his castle. His music is very haunting, and uncharacteristic of what we expect from the time period.
Technically, classical with the lowercase c is the general term, while Classical with the capital C is the one specific to the late 18th century.
Calling the second movement of that sonata Jazz is one of my favorite classical memes, even though I feel like it's probably heretical on some level. This sonata is one of my favorite works though. It's so beautiful, and so much larger than itself. His 31st sonata is also amazing, specifically the last movement.
