Do any of you dabble in old tech or legacy operating systems? I just spent some time today and got a Windows 2000 vm to run the latest Firefox ESR. I can also watch Youtube videos, as flash works. Pic related.

I guess my server counts. I have debian running on an old Asus EEE PC 701 I bought back in 2008 or 2009, since I had no more use for it and it was just sitting around collecting dust.

I have a machine running the 1999 version of Windows CE. Unfortunately, it won't participate in the screenshotting.

I too have an old netbook being used as a server. It's an HP Mini 110. I use it mostly as a development server, I have a 500gb external attached to it as well setup with OwnCloud to have a personal backup of stuff.

I also have an old Compaq laptop being used as a Plex media server and nothing else. It has a 1tb external attached to it. I could probably do something else with it but I'm just not too certain.

i happen to own a mid 2004 G5 imac which in hindsight has not aged well at all hardware wise though i like to fuck around with it every now and then. nothing too invasive for the system itself.
although i have had the interest to embrace the whole linux distro deal. it might not hurt at all since it is a far cry from my current main computer.

How do you feel about how phones seem to be slowly taking over the tech market? How mobility seems to be more important than functionality?

I'm pretty he's emphasising the mobility over functionallity arguments. The Switch is not as powerful as other consoles, has crappy connections to its controllers, and several other flaws, but will sell well due it's mobility.

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.

https://www.bitchute.com/faq

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.

 No.1235

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

 No.1236

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.

>>1236
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.

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:

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.

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.
