Distro Sharing Thread

Let's have a fun little thread. Post in this thread and tell the person above you what distribution they should run. They have to run it in a virtual machine for a day or two and can then come back and share experiences or opinions.

I feel like it's easy to get caught in a rut of one or two distributions and I think it would be fun to do this. Also, I would recommend staying away from gentoo or something that will take too long to install.

IPFS and distributed tech

Let's talk about IPFS (but also other distributed internet technologies).

>What is IPFS?

It's basically BitTorrent on steroids.

>why would one use it

* Same file is accessed with the same hash across whole IPFS and everyone you can reach who has it seeds it. You aren't stuck in one Torrent swarm. Let's say you download a folder, and then it turns out there are some issues with it. If you download a better one you don't have to dl same files again. Individual files you already dl'd are cached. You don't have to move anything, it'll just work. (Don't shove your shit in RARs faggot.)
* You can have an both immutable and mutable addresses, kinda like a Torrent that you can update on the fly.
* As a result you can host static websites (like in Freenet).
* Smaller files that traditionally "aren't worth a torrent" can be viably hosted with IPFS.
* Because it's like a 1 huge torrent, peers are found fast for new downloads. You don't need to wait that much to start a download.
* You can watch your animu while it automatically downloads and seeds. Just point your player to the local link. It's super-fast!

>how to upload a single file

$ ipfs add ./$file
Access it at http://127.0.0.1:8080/ipfs/$outputted-hash
>how to upload a dir
$ ipfs add -r ./$dir
Access it at http://127.0.0.1:8080/ipfs/$last-outputted-hash
>how to make the thing mutable
$ ipfs name publish ./$file-or-dir-hash
Access it at http://127.0.0.1:8080/ipns/$output-hash-aka-peerid (it's ipNs not ipFs)
To update, publish another hash and it will be available at the same IPNS address.

>gateways (how to access IPFS if you don't have it installed)

https://gateway.ipfs.io/, https://gateway.glop.me/, http://ipfs.pics (just pics?)

Daily reminder to pin files that you care about.

IPFS now supports CRDTs and pubsub channels, making fully dynamic content on IPFS totally possible! Try out orbit.chat (#ipfschan channel) or check out the code at https://github.com/orbitdb/orbit for an example!

IPFSchan could be a possibility, with fully distributed operation. In principle, it should already be possible to port an existing chan to a fully distributed IPFS architecture (based on the orbit example above), except for captcha and moderation.

In the meantime, it is already very usable for filesharing/file storage.
Also, Filecoin is going to be released soon: a cryptocurrency to pay people to host stuff on ipfs and to move it to a requester as quickly as possible. This will allow people to host things in ipfs even if the content is unpopular.

Thoughts? I'd love to see interesting (perhaps finalchan-centric) projects based on it. With the blanket censorship going on out there and the inherent issues with centralized websites, it looks like the silver bullet we need.

New Imageboard Concept in Early Planning Stages

PROMISEDCHAN
(name liable to future change)

There is a new imageboard-software concept in the works. Addressing the problem of powerful moderating positions being compromised and shitting up the board against the will of board communities and their established board culture.
(See: 4chan 8/b/, 8/pol/, 8/wx/ etc.)
>Nothing that isn't spam or illegal is deleted, ever. You can subscribe to different moderation teams (and bots) to have the shit filtered to your liking. There would be a default moderation team for each board but the default would change if the majority changed the moderators they subscribed to.
>To keep normies from freaking the fuck out a default profile of moderation subscriptions will be applied by default, the default moderation will be decided by an impartial algorithm that takes in to account the modoration most users in a board choose, weighting the chooses by activity.

Unfortunately there is a shortage of skilled /tech/anons who are willing to assist in the planning and development of this new imageboard concept, which is holding back development.

If you're interested in assisting in the development of this new imageboard concept, please go to

CSS Design

How can I into advanced CSS? Any of it that I write is usually shit, and the rest is copied from someone else much better than me. I want to be that person.

I can code, my background is almost entirely backend/CLI programs, but I also have an eye for UI/design. I intend to be a CSS wizard, and I'm willing to put in the time.

Take the OP image for instance. Alignment can take me a while, but then how do I start designing the individual elements? I'll browse codepen for hours to find something similar, but I'd rather know how to do it than steal someone's work.

The shadow effect is really neat. How is that "Up Next" box designed and aligned? How do the soft animation effects work? I can "animate" something, but the fancy throws me in for a loop. This is stuff I'll research for hours but not really find any good answers for.

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.

LynxChan 1.8

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:
-More granular and specific verbose modes.
-A terminal command to perform a clean shutdown of the engine.
-A board setting that allows for a maximum age that threads are allowed to be bumped.
-Improved spammer and TOR ips storage.

This version will be released 03/17, LynxChan can be found at https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan.

I've got a few questions.
I'm not posting this on /v/ because it mostly deals with the creation aspects of a game.
Suppose I wanted to make a computer game. My guess is that it wouldn't be very complex, compared to a lot of other games out there, but I could be wrong.
Anyway, here are some things about the idea:
>First person, WASD
>There would be an inventory screen from which you could equip 2 items (wear clothing or hold an object)
>No enemies, cutscenes, or character hand animations; i.e. items would not appear on screen if you're holding it in your hand.
>The environment could be interacted with by using L-click, but this would really only result in stuff like doors opening or lamps illuminating. Nothing super fancy, and objects wouldn't be able to be moved in the game world unless an event is #triggered. So no moving objects around with the mouse.
>Some rooms would use different lighting and music, but the general physics would stay the same.
Based on that, what sort of difficulty on a 1-10 scale would I face in the actual making of something with those attributes? Excluding stuff like recording sound effects and making textures/meshes, what kind of software would I be looking at? Time isn't really important, as this would mainly just be a project I'd work on in my spare time, and I'm not intending to try to sell it on steam.
If it makes any difference, I do have some programming experience (C++ and C), but its been about 6 or so years since I actually wrote anything, so I've pretty much forgotten.
Please keep the abuse to a minimum.

Well it looks like Netflix has taken their internet speed battle with Comcast and Time Warner to the next level.

Netflix has launched Fast ( http://fast.com ) and it's a speed test that uses Netflix servers for the results. The benefit to using fast.com is that since it's using Netflix, you can see if your internet is actually matching what you pay for. Providers in the past given unfettered access to Speedtest.net to make it look like you were getting great speeds, but by using Netflix servers, you can test your speed against the exact service that providers are trying to throttle.

Netflix makes up approximately 33% of all internet traffic. This is a great public move for Netflix. Now you can call up your internet provider and ask them why Netflix is loading so much slower than the package you pay for.

We've all heard about cyberpunk and cypherpunk, but here's something new:
Textpunk

Newspaper articles, BBS (like this one), IRC, ASCII art, program source code, books, viewing HTML source, math, etc.

A textpunk doesn't sit there waiting for information to be slowly fed to him, textpunk is thirsty for knowledge and 100% focused - they read old school hacker textfiles.

Look at how text has shaped humanity: The birth of writing systems was correlated with some of fastest advances of science and technology in early human history. Mass production of the Bible took power away from a few select monks and democratized paving the way for people to start thinking for themselves.

Programming is text and it's the closest thing there is in the world to true wizardy and spell casting.

Today textpunks build up digital libraries of books and stick it to the copyright cartel. Aaron Swartz and so many anonymous sources that tirelessly scan and collect books.

Textpunks are the people in tune with modern digital society of ultrafast cost-free transmission of text, they're the ones rethinking, revolutionizing, publishing and mixing it with open rights and making works available online.

I just bought these, they have shipped but I do not have them yet.

The reviews for them are really good, so hopefully it was a good decision. The removable cable is great for me, because I tend to run over the wires with my computer chair.

Here is one review, but they all seem to say the same thing. http://www.cnet.com/news/how-good-can-21-59-headphones-be/

How viable is to host dynamic website on a free web hosting?

Of course i know you can't host there a big website, i'm not that dumb, but i mean small one or middle sized one.

I've made a simple textboard in PHP and i'm hosting it at one of these.

You can't upload files there, so i won't run out of limited storage space very soon, but i'm afraid that i will run out of limited bandwidth soon.

What are my options?

So I wanted to play an old win9x game.

And VMware still can't keep aspect ratio when upscaling, so I thought I should try it under VirtualBox.
And once I had 98SE all nice and tweaked just like I wanted, I thought "why the hell not?"
So what's your excuse for still being sane on the eve of 2016?

Delta Packages

Why do other distros not use delta packages? Fedora does this when upgrading, and you can see instead of downloading 120 mb I download 15mb.

Is it not worth the trouble?

Itt: post your guitars, and guitar accessories.

I'm currently trying to find a name for mine (Epiphone Les Paul 1960 V3)
Current front runners are "Kayla," "Amber," and "Rebecca," who was the first girl that wronged me.

Torrential suggested Chisa, but shes not bright and bubbly like a Strat.

Whats your guitar named?

Hey /t/, what are you listening through?

Pics are my Grado ps500s and my fiio e10k

The Grados aret sweet, as a headphone with its price in the name should be, the highs are super crisp, and the bass is clear and deep without being rumbly. though i enjoy them the best when the have some kind of bass boost. They're also low impedance enough that they can be driven very well straight from my phone.
I'm not a super audiophile that can tell the difference between different cables or whatever, but they make me smile all the time.
Plus they make my old beat solos (lel) sound like I'm listening to hold music through a telephone.

I use Google music player, because on my phone it let's me download my whole playlist of thumbs up songs onto my sd card, so I don't use data. I also really like the bass and 3d effects in the equalizer setting, they make for a really enjoyable listening experience if I'm not trying to critically listen (straining to hear every detail in a quiet environment etc).

On my pc I use muh foobar2000 for muh flacs cause that's what the haxxors use. If I'm just causally listening then I'll use Google music because its mini player supports the media keys on my laptop. Only problem with it is that it has a tendency to skip halfway through songs reeee.

How do you listen to your music/porn/games?

search engines

What are some good privacy based search engines I should know about?

I just want to escape corporation/marketing/google type of threat level. Are private search engines enough for this or do I need a paid sweden/swiss VPN?

ITT: Guilty pleasure songs, or ones that fall way outside your usual genres. Say your usual tastes, and why you like the song. For example if you usually listen to indie ska jazz but really have a soft spot for AC/DC.

I usually listen to classic hard rock.
I like this, because it captures a sense of passion and gentle but intense lust.

Source Based Distributions

So, how do you all feel about source based distributions, like Gentoo/Funtoo? Pic related is me doing an install of Funtoo in VirtualBox. Creating this thread to pass the time.

Happy now, Torrential?

RIP Ian Murdoch

Be Ian Murdoch.

You love your wife so much you name the masterpiece of your life after your names. Debra + Ian = Debian.

Debian.

After 15 years she leaves you taking with her half of your money and a chunk of your heart. Debian - Debra = Ian?

Debian.

She found a new lover immediately but after 6 years you still can't get over the divorce. You are alone. Worse of all every day at work you hear about 'Debian' and it reminds you of her.

Debian debian debian.

Then "women in open source" start telling you everything is white-men's fault. Why aren't you doing anything for women in tech? Aren't you ashamed of your privilege you fucking cis-scum? And even with all your privilege you are alone.

Debian debian debian debian.

Maybe at the bottom of the next bottle I'll find some solace.

Debian debian debian debian debian debian.

Then the neighbour yells "install gentoo you fucking faggot!", it's blind rage.

Next thing you know a cop is strip-searching you, she's a woman. Her name is Deborah.

Welcome to /t/!

This board is for the discussion of all types of technology, whether it be Google Glass, smartphones, OS's, musical instruments, etc. This board is strictly SFW, so unless VR and porn have become one (which it has), nothing of that sorts.
