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.

I love the coffee machine.
Absolutely essential


Yeah, it's nice to have if I'm playing vidya or doing work. I have a box of bob marley-brand coffee beside it atm.

Does anyone know much about car audio? I would like to do something like in the attached. I drive a truck, so I know there are less places to put in something like a 3-Way Bandpass box, but I'm not familiar with amps, speaker brands, or really anything about car audio.

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!

I have some bad news for you friend.


Checked, and also the animation doesn't real.
IPFS go client seems to have some issues: if you run it for too long clearnet sites start blocking you for "unusual traffic", and it murderizes your bandwidth. Known issues from 2015, too. But maybe they'll address it sometime.
At least it works quite well for what it does, it's very fast beside name resolution and name resolution speed is just about to be fixed by pubsub + CRDTs. After that, filecoin and shift (especially shift I think) are going to blow its popularity skyhigh. And with shift we'll have fully dynamic websites on ipfs.


It works on my machine (TM). Hope they fix that soon though. I love it as an idea and really hope it cathces on, at least among the tech-savvy crowd.


Definitely. And with ipfs-js (a js implementation of the entire thing), it doesn't need to be restricted to tech-savvy people at all. We'll see what happens. It's actually pretty surprising that there's no already-existing solution for this, honestly.

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.

Pic mostly unrelated.

Parrot OS


I assume you mean parrot security OS? I'll take a look at it I suppose, though I am by no means a penetration tester, so I am not sure how well I will be able to review it.

For you, I'll recommend taking a look at Bunsen Labs. It's supposed to be a successor to Crunchbang. I wonder how they are doing.


Oh, yeah, Bunsenlabs, I've actually been meaning to try that out. Never really dug into openbox before. I'll make a VM.


So I downloaded the home non pen-testing version of Parrot OS. My general impressions are just a sort of resounding meh. I feel like as a normal use distribution, it doesn't really do anything that makes it stand out. There are a million distributions based on Debian stable and I feel like it doesn't really stand out.

I didn't have too many issues. The graphical installer in the live session would not work for me. However, choosing the graphical install from the boot menu worked just fine with a pretty standard Debian installer. One thing I did notice was that Parrot OS did use relatively few system resources, which was nice. However, I did not like the default theming. At a first glance it looks nice, but the colors often clash and the fonts have very poor contrast, with a lot of dark grey on black.

It's very difficult to write this review because I feel like there's not a lot to say, good or ill. I think my biggest problem is just that it does nothing to stand out, at least in its home version. There are other distributions that do MATE better, and other distributions that build off of Debian better. It does not really excel in any area. That being said, it doesn't really falter either. Overall, I would rate it about 6/10, though for different reasons than Korora. While Korora had a horrendous KDE version and a pretty good MATE version, Parrot OS is consistent, just… well, kind of boring. If you use it an like it, I don't think you're crazy. However, I wouldn't really recommend installing this one or taking the effort to move over.

Bunsenlabs is pretty cool.

The conky config is nice enough, it's not overdone and all over like a lot of the ones I generally see. The OS uses a generally grey colour, which obviously can be changed, but I'm not huge on it. Bunsenlabs is supposed to be to debian what crunchbang was; preconfigured to work as one would require, including in terms of visuals, which I think they took too conservative an approach on by default.

in terms of functionality, Bunsenlabs manages to do pretty well. It's not unstable, and the openbox config is very usable. My only real issue was the default window sizing, which again, is easily changed.

I was sort of surprised the devs hadn't moved on from jessie to stretch as a base. Neofetch wasn't in the jessie repos, so this kind of bothered me, but again, not anything I can't change.

The lightdm layout is really nice, I have to say. It kind of reminds me of the ubuntu theme, so I really like it.

All in all, Bunsenlabs works, and it looks/functions well enough without much issue. The only "issues" are generally easy to remedy and it's certainly a reliable OS. I'm personally not big on openbox, so I wouldn't use this in my day-to-day life, but I'd still call Bunsenlabs an 8/10.

Sorry for the cut-off screenshot, kek.

(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

>the faggot who you're talking about left the development
I'm talking about YOU, friendo.


I guess for the meantime I'm some kind of organizer of sorts- but no lead developer, I'm going to be passing the lead torch onto the Blazechan dev so it doesn't matter anyway.
>because it has clearly has a newfag at the helm.
I'm acting on general consensus faggot. Most people in the main thread want this concept- and they came from all the places that I spammed the OP (which included most of the alternative bunker boards like here, masterchan, NNTPchan, endchan, etc. etc. etc.

Whether or not your ebin oldfag buddies are going to join us or not doesn't concern me at all. Perhaps those that come from reading this thread will be the ones that you wanted out anyway. But even if that is not the case, that's up to THEM to make that call, not you.

Wow, after reading this thread I can safely say that I have a good feeling I think promised chan will go down in flames.But hey, lots of websites fail. I'm actually impressed though about his ego about it.


Ever heard of nntpchan (from the overchan project)? It works on top of i2p or tor but has that feature builtin: each node duplicates the content from ALL other nodes, but also applies their own moderation on top, so most nodes remove CP but some are completely unfiltered. If nothing else this should serve as a good base for whatever you're building.
You might also want to look into distributed systems, like ipfs, eth, neo, maidsafe, etc. and build a user-weight moderation system on top of that.

I just bought a Moto z2 force

How bad did I fuck up /t/?




There are benefits and negatives to everything.

I don't know about that specific phone but I am familiar with the brand. MOTO is owned by Lenovo, and is certainly they bought it the phone support has gone to shit. They quickly took a brand that had a reputation of long term support and turned it into a Chinese phone (what it releases with is what it will die with).

Luckily, most moto phones are very easy to unlock the boot loader. That means you can put on a custom ROM and use only the Google apps you want, instead of having 32 Google apps when you only use 2.

My Moto currently has LineageOS on it, and the Nano version of GApps. LineageOS is nearly a pure Android experience, updates from within the OS, and gets security updates regularly.

So you have a shit brand and a great brand at the same time, depending on how you use it.

ITT we post mobile device apps that we like, but don't think everyone else knows about.

NewPipe is an unaffiliated YouTube app. It let's you play the video in the background, pop out the video so you can move it around the screen, stream videos like normal, or download the videos (or just the MP3 if that's what you prefer).

It's been a really nice app for those times where you just want to listen, so you can turn the screen off and enjoy the sounds.


Not sure if it's in the Play Store or the Apple Store, but it's available on F-Droid.



Smartphone discussion belongs on garbage consumerism sites like 8chan or 4chan.
