>>418834 Have no idea what zeronet even is, what happened with Infinichan is government censorship. The site was blamed for hosting the manifesto of one of those loser mass shooters, so Cloudflare dropped the support. Cause, you know, if you read a journal of a killer, YOU will become a killer yourself! (cause humans are totally blank slates to be influenced by the smallest thing)
And later it turned out it wasn't even posted on 8chan, but Cloudflare are a bunch of faggots who will never admit being wrong.
>>418834 CodeMonkey confimed the ZeroNet copy is unofficial. I believe it is a darknet: >ZeroNet is a decentralized web-like network of peer-to-peer users
>>418837 >Cause, you know, if you read a journal of a killer, YOU will become a killer yourself! Don't forget that every single board was involved! I just want it to come back online so I can save some old posts from niche boards, that's all.
>>418844 >purging NSFW content then selling to a porn company The world is strange but I doubt that would have happened.
>>418864 Maybe, but the carpathian basin isn't Siciliy or the Canary Islands or the coasts of Portugal. Those places usually have oceanic climates or are otherwise windy areas, which makes the large temperatures more easily bearable. And/or they have their society accostumed to the temperatures, such as mid-day siestas and work hours being mornings and nights. We don't have all of that. 34C in a city, with no wind movement nor any rain, where work hours are mostly in the middle of the day, can be very difficult. But we have had up to 41C last year.
I don't care so much about the wider internet brouhaha related to this sort of image, but I have to say this kind of expression seriously weirds me out and that it is so common you keep coming across collages of it like this. No one needs to see all the way to your back teeth.
I spent half a week waiting for a reply on two emails, only to find that Thunderbird did not send them in the first place, due to Gmail requiring a cookie login now, beyond the normal SMTP access. Also, it locks me out of my account every few months when my dynamic IP changes. Getting back is near impossible, only simple way is to keep changing my IP until it uses the same octets as before.
Gmail fucking sucks nowadays, but what other good email providers are there? The only ones I know of are cock.li, and I've seen someone use posteo.de and mailbox.org....
I recently installed a 2nd SSD in my machine, mainly for caching plus to store games on. Oddly, after I redirected every temp folder to that new SSD, my machine became significantly more responsive... after doing some benchmarks, turns out that the new drive scores up to 4x higher in random read tests, and 4x better in sequential writing. The low write speeds could be attributed to the old SSD being 90% full and also extremely fragmented (contrary to popular belief, filesystem fragmentation does matter a lot for SSDs, for writing at least). But not a 4x difference, and not in random reads.
So my next weekend project will be repartitioning my computer, and using the new SSD as a shared system + games drive. It actually is so fast that in certain benchmarks, it's the CPU that becomes the bottleneck.
Some of you may be familiar with towel.blinkenlights.nl, which will send you an ASCII rendition of Star Wars IV (viewable here: http://www.asciimation.co.nz/) via telnet protocol. I learned about it maybe ten years ago. I didn't know about the blinkenlights joke (nor the significance of towel (or .nl, come to think of it)). I just remember thinking it was a really comfy name, I imagined a midnight cityscape and all those windows with their lights on. It was nice.

I'm sure a lot of kids thought, "I wish it could be Christmas every day". Sooner or later, it just might happen. It's not even December and shopping malls look like it's Christmas Eve already. Christmas is supposed to make me happy but I'm sick to death of carols and it isn't even December.
I want to eat chalk, it's fine isn't it? Like not just grab some colored chalk from an art supply store but stuff that is specifically non-toxic, would be great if you could just buy a bag of it like you would sweets.

>>419635 I feel bad for the innocent plebs being infected but at the same time... China being weakened in some fashion isn't a negative outcome.
Its not like the officials give a shit about the lives and safety of the common person the rest of the time with how much of a deathtrap things become because of their lax building standards, or various other tyrannies inflicted upon them.
>>419636 China has way too much economic strength in the world. If this virus weakens them greatly, that is not bad. What's going to be interesting is when the virus hits india, the least sanitary environment on the planet.

I'm in my early 30's and I worry about my memory, I go to use a word in my fairly extensive vocabulary and just totally space on it despite knowing the word I want to use. Then I need minutes to try and coax the word out of my brain if I even manage to remember it at all at that time period.
The word right now was Superstitious and it took my a few minutes, brain kept snapping to words like Sympathetic.
This is fucked but I think I've been infected by the casual racism of the internet.
Live in a place where white is the most prominent, then other races, then black people being the least common. And now when I happen to see a black person in the street or on internet often the memories of all the racist spam and memes that are everywhere are what pops into my head. Not even thinking it about the person just being reminded and have recollections all pop-up unbidden.
The stores here are now making it mandatory to wear a face mask and gloves when entering. The only reason I even have face masks is because my parents sent me some, and my only gloves are winter gloves.
I'm half inclined to splurge on some kind of ultra detailed movie mask like Flick. How would they react in the store if I wore a Darth Vader outfit, or in a Predator mask, or as Jason Voorhees.
>>420055 Where is that? Would be fucked if they forced that around here since the only 'mask' in the house is two of those builders dust masks I bought years ago. Wouldn't mind owning a proper full-face gas mask, if I'm gonna wear anything not gonna bother with half-measures.
>>420056 dust masks and disposable plastic gloves are exactly what is considered what you should be wearing (though the rubber gloves are preferred). More efficient masks are better, but the n95 masks are extremely uncomfortable with my glasses so I'm just not bothering with them right now.
I may have to though, but the thing is, the only way I can wear them is so they don't cover my face properly, meaning they are useless. Also I can barely breath in these things. There's no place to went the air out, so after 3 breaths my face is already hot and my glasses are covered in steam.
I didn't even bother checking the kitchen because I've had the *floor* leaking under my washing machine - before even loading it. Basically I came home to find a puddle there. This has happened MANY times before. So I'm again thinking that the problem does not lie with me, but something in the building is just fucked between the floors.
I'll have to take the kitchen apart anyway though, just in case. Those squeaky tiles have been there for a decade already. For all I know, half the tiles in the corner may have rotten away without me knowing.
>>420267 They may have relatives checking their old inboxes, or you know their names and look them up on social media and the like (some artists use their real names, you also may find their real name if you do commissions and send money via paypal or so).
And in the case of Zimmerman, he wasn't just a random guy posting porn behind a pseudonym, he made thousands of pictures over 20 years all signed with his own name, and his art was published at one point.
An obituary was posted online with his name, I'm guessing someone just contacted the family afterwards to confirm it.
Or maybe he just had real life friends who knew of his craft and posted the facts online.
>>420449 I only read of it the first time yesterday. What caught my eye the most is the one of the suspects was under trial for 15+ times already, for arson, drugs, rape charges, and attacking minors.
It just reinforces my thoughts that the death penalty should be re-established. A man like that, who has fallen back to his ways 15+ times will not change. Giving him penance and another chance is just a waste of resources, and it will lead to further crimes.
>>420467 oh hey, that guy is the most annoying enemy in Streets of Rage 4. Looking at his videos, it's pretty clear they inspired the SOR4 enemy from OC; he has the same stance, same get up motion, same headbutt, and same kick.
My old mouse kicked the bucket after so many years, so I bought a new one - this one apparently has teflon coated feet (or something like that) so it can move easier for all the esports kids. However this makes it slip around so easily that the *weight of the cable* is enough to push it away; I can't put it idle unless I move it in the corner or something.
I watch ProZD videos on youtube, I enjoy his voice acting skits, but now youtube keeps recommending his 'other' videos where he eats all the various varieties of pop tarts or crisps or what have you and I don't even want to be told about that because such ridiculous gluttony infront of a camera for views disgusts me.
What do you call that condition where your vision is dazzled? Like when you watch a bright strobing light, and you keep seeing it after you close your eyes, EXCEPT that you never looked into a strobing light but your eyes still work like that, for hours. Like there's a bright spot on the upper part of your vision that doesn't blur things, just makes it take more concentration to focus.
My watercooling setup had a broken pump a few months back, and since I fixed that, it got pretty noisy... I did not refill it properly and it was full of air bubbles, which made constant noise.
I finally got around to fixing it. Since it is a semi-AIO (it is possible to take it apart, refill it, and expand it), it had no dedicated reservoir, the radiator doubled as the reservoir. Had to take out the entire thing and twist and turn it around until I could hear the air bubbles not in the pump part, but in the radiator. Had to keep it running while doing all of that, and refill it while it was running too, to keep the air bubbles surfacing. I could still add about a 1dl of cooling water until it was full, so it was missing a lot.
I've gotten so used to the bubbly noise that I can barely believe how silent it became after doing this. I want to expand it to cover my CPU as well as having a dedicated pump and reservoir, but for that I need a new case since my current one predates the proliferation of consumer watercooling equipment. Even the current AIO fits in partially by accident.
I would never have thought that I'd start adding watercooling to my computer, but it makes a ludicrous difference in cooling performance even with just a single 120mm radiator.
Fakku started uploading a few books to sadpanda, to practically universal revile. Then they declared that if you want to complain, do it in the forum not in the comments - then the forum thread got locked.
>>420711 Someone(s) got access to the accounts of a lot of famous people and posted the bitcoin equivalent of the nigerian prince scam. It was either an extremely serious security problem that allowed attackers to access random peoples accounts, or it was an attack by insiders - or the attackers knew people who had access. So, basically, one of the top social media sites on the internet got hacked.
I believe the technical term for it is "pwned", not just owned.

I've got a habit in typing that pisses me off to no end, might be a symptom of some mental disability.

>>420878 I am of the opinion quantum computing is actually a bunch of phooie. Claiming to have invented one and having a copy is fine and good. Now, show it to me, show it in action, and then definitively prove it's "quantum" on the inside. Do all three, and I'm a believer.
>>420896 You make yourself pure through your own actions. If you do not wish to perform actions I would have to ask why you are even alive. For life is nothing but a series of actions; don't want to act, don't live.
>>420916 Have you seen any recent movies from old action movie stars? Arnold, Willis, Stallone, people like that? Those dudes are in their 70s now. Used to watch all their stuff in the telly as a kid and now I see them and they are grey haired, wrinkly old men.
>>420918 The new Arnold movies are indeed not as good. I admit that Arnold today is not as imposing as an action hero as he was in the 80s and 90s. But I can't think of any one of his recent movies, that has a script as entertaining as True Lies or Last Action Hero. Or even Jingle All the Way for that matter.

>>421137 Steams trading card thing only allows you to put cards on the market if you have their phone app installed. Without it it can only put cards up with 1 month delay, which basically makes them impossible to sell at market value.
Also banking applications started requiring 2FA for login here in Europe, and in a few months they'll change to needing biometric authentication for online transactions (using fingerprint scanner or face recognition in mobile phones). The bank I'm at could give you separate dongle keypads to get around 2FA to keep use their old banking app, but I have no idea what they'll do to comply with the new laws.
>>421135 >Getting pissed off that everything now requires a mobile phone number to receive text message as verification in order to use their services.
It's an EU law. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Payment_Services_Directive https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strong_customer_authentication
>Article 4(30) defines "strong customer authentication" itself (as multi-factor authentication): >an authentication based on the use of two or more elements categorised as knowledge (something only the user knows), possession (something only the user possesses) and inherence (something the user is) that are independent, in that the breach of one does not compromise the reliability of the others, and is designed in such a way as to protect the confidentiality of the authentication data
>>421180 Windows XP was junk. I had to reinstall that shit every month before SP2; with SP2 it was only tolerable because the only other thing to compare it to was Win98SE which crashed every few hours. Then by the mid-2000s it took a fucking eternity to install it because you needed to download 100+ fixes for it through windows update. I'm fucking glad it's dead, but applications using its api still bog down modern systems (for ex. Radeon drivers slow down after extended downtime if you use programs that create many GDI objects).
Anyone have any experiences with roll-up puzzle mats? I have a really old puzzle I've always wanted to finally finish, but I simply have no table space to put it. So those puzzle mats that can be rolled up to a bar could be pretty useful.
But I'm concerned that they'd damage the pieces, since the pieces themselves don't bend that way.
>>421297 Now turns out that I need to travel to a branch of my bank in person to get the phone number added, because the original landline one was from a home I moved from years ago. Not gonna be doing that any time soon. Goddamn this mess.
>>421336 You can still do that without traveling to your bank, you just get an extra phone message. I agree that it is less convenient now because you have to add your phone number to every goddamn internet site ever.
What's really stupid is that this will not cut back on fraudulent transactions, because if someone steals your phone, he can still use your banking info which is all on the phone now, and the verification code is sent to your phone too, so it's just fucking stupid.
8kun (formerly 8chan) may be finally dying. Ron Watkins ('Codemonkey') resigned suddenly on Nov 3 No new Qanon posts since Nov 3 Allegations of Jim Watkins arrested for CP production. (https://old.reddit.com/r/QAnonCasualties/comments/jq5e79/fyi_we_took_out_q_hopefully_things_will_get/)
>>421598 I don't even follow how many sites 8chan splintered to. There was 8chan, 8kun, 8chan.moe, julay world, anoncafe, smugloli, and that's just from the top of my head. No clue which one is which. Which one was the one that restored all the user made boards after the original 8chan shut down after one of the weekly school shootings? A lot of artists made their own boards there.
>Allegations of Jim Watkins arrested for CP production. Not to defend the guy, but the reddit link says >Watkins was producing pornography in Japan Which is extremely broad and can mean anything from hardcore content to selling loli manga, since the media never makes any distinction between the two.
Also how did 8chan go from a public imageboard demonized because Internet Nazis post there anonymously, to a child pornography ring? What did I miss?
>>421599 >I don't even follow how many sites 8chan splintered to. There was 8chan, 8kun, 8chan.moe, julay world, anoncafe, smugloli, and that's just from the top of my head. No clue which one is which. 8ch.net was OG. Went down for months then restored as 8kun.top (same database). Meanwhile the others were made. Those are the main splinters along with some others in the webring (see board list on any of the last three ones and it shows boards from the rest in the ring). julay is not called theguntretort or something after removing almost all the boards (with prior warning).
>but the reddit link says (which I acknowledge is also hearsay) >never makes distinction True, however the article linked in there mentions hosting domains with certain names. They intentionally don't say what exactly it was and I don't know, but my guess is not drawn material.
>Also how did 8chan go from a public imageboard demonized because Internet Nazis post there anonymously, to a child pornography ring? What did I miss? But Anon, it was originally demonized for hosting child modelling images before gamergate moved there!
The irony of course is it is most used now for Qanon boards and official posts, which was heavily about #SaveTheChildren from Satanic Communist child-eating adrenochrome-harvesting pedophile Democrats. I've been bullying Qanons for this past few week so this is just magical.
>>421601 It's not pedo central. It used to have boards dedicated to child modelling content before gamergate which was then afterwards removed, but this isn't about that. It's about other services hosted by Jim Watkins's company, which appear to have been dedicated sites. However, I have no evidence beyond those links to take with a grain of salt. >Was it just not moderated properly and got flooded with that content? IIRC Hotwheels was a free speech idealist and believed it was a necessary evil to allow them equal rights to the platform. Free speech, no exceptions. They were boards he was able to delete. He has since denounced that belief and hasn't been involved with the site since 2016 or so.
There has been a CP spammer on the Q boards but those get deleted after an hour or so.
Seems like Scotland is adopting the law where organ donation after death is the default with the option to opt-out. Other places like Canada already run that system don't they?
Honestly its a good/logical idea. Transplants are an important life-saving thing that is much better to contribute to rather than letting perfectly good organs go to waste rotting in the ground or being burnt to ash.
>>420467 >reminds me what a shame it is how bad the WWF/E has gotten Vince and his company has topped self in being a shit in more recent times when he mandated all wrestlers aren't allowed to have social media accounts anymore even in their own names.

>>421828 That's what's getting you so worked up? Not the fact he's laughably fishing for goodboy points in the same retarded way he hamfistedly drops normie 80's references into his works, but the fact trans stuff is mentioned in your presence at all?
>>421829 >he's laughably fishing for goodboy points in the same retarded way he hamfistedly drops normie 80's references into his works I tune that out since it has been done since fucking forever. Even James Bond movies make poor out of place references to older Bond movies. In the 00s every other game made a reference to Lord of Rings or attacking giant enemy crabs on their weak spot, and Transformers comics got to the point that they are referencing how much the fanbase is fed up with references to the 1986 movie. If the story itself is boring as shit, the references won't matter anyway.
The trans stuff however comes completely out of the blue and spirals down into incessant rambling that is out of place with the rest of the story and feels more like propaganda (how, exactly, do you have sex as a woman one day and then sex as a man? Do you sew back on the cock you cut off?). Also it is written in a way that makes it look very creepy; like, the word for word defense that a real life child molester would use.
Plus you can't read the news or turn the TV on or play a video game without seeing some more news about transsexual rights being offended or some other PC bullshit. That's what really bothers me, ultimately.
