I can't think of anything that I treasure that much. The only thing that I've gone out of my way to keep, and find again after losing, is a picture that someone drew of me on /jp/ years ago. There are a lot of images and videos that I regret not keeping, and I think if I still had them they might be something I would post in this thread.

It is hard to pick any one file that is precious to me, since most of them can be recreated or downloaded again. I have some text files from when I posted

Maybe my folders of screenshots I've gathered from online game communities that I used to attend. A lot of silly stuff in there.

Never seen anyone make such a face at the sight of regular old mushrooms. I don't mind the taste too much anymore, but I never liked mushrooms when I was a kid, so I kinda learned to hate it. Must be mushy mushrooms my mom used to serve, their taste is a little metallic, and I don't like the texture. I love the mushrooms my aunts serve, since they tend to cook them in such a way that they get really crispy. Almost like bacon.


I've saved more or less every single imageboard thread I've ever seen in a folder, as MHTML. That isn't a single file but since threads get deleted quite often (and archives don't contain thumbnails) those files are irreplaceable.

Have you ever messed with your school's wifi?

I once made a program in the seventh grade that was able to access any students account by entering their username. Friends and I used it to transfer files quickly without the need for usb drives. Eventually the program got leaked and made its rounds throughout the school.

>tfw entire IT staff fired for ignoring problem, which they knew existed well before the program was made

>tfw never caught
>tfw went back for reunion and the program is still on school computers


You should leave some cryptic notes lying around to pass it on to the current students.


I have a sibling there who already knows ;)


if it wouldn't be too identifying, would you mind telling us what security hole they left?


In middle school we found out the password of our teacher, because he typed it in the username field when we were watching and didn't change it afterwards.

It was fun to troll classmates with master eye, a program to observe and take over pool computers.

Sorry for the bad pictures, I'm horrible with any kind of camera. My cheap computer, with how my room looks with my rift setup and how my station looks normally. Vr gaming is cool but the vr tax is getting to me and pirating makes me feel a bit bad for most devs. Now I just use it as a virtual workspace, so I can mess around with cad stuff in a more professional looking environment. I used to also use it for watching anime and emulating games, but I find it easier to do all that without the headset on.

Write your own programs. use source code from the internet in seconds. update when you want to not when it tells you.
Want to run a website? cool! you can set one up in minutes.
Want to adjust your hardware to your liking? Awesome!
Want to stop or make a new feature to a program you use every day? Go for it!

Its your computer! use it how you want!

Thanks, guys, i'm gonna check these out. Btw, i'm at the basics level, using ubuntu on my second notebook.

Mastering the terminal is achieved through trial, error, and persistence. Read as much as you can about every new word or acronym you come across. Don't be afraid to break things, either. Just keep on truckin'.


You can set it as your login shell, but keep /bin/sh as bash or dash. The `chsh' command is what you want to use, but in my experience editing /etc/passwd manually is more reliable. GUI terminal emulators may require additional configuration.
Just check a list of all your installed packages, and delete the ones you don't want. If you use gentoo you can edit your /var/lib/portage/world to remove old crap you don't need, and then run emerge –depclean.
Alpine has a similar simplicity to it. I've just switched to it from Gentoo, because I was a retard and I deleted some important libraries. I was unable to fix the problem manually within a reasonable timeframe and I didn't feel like compiling everything from scratch, so I backed up /home and switched to Alpine.

So I'm using Linux Mint Cinnamon, is there a way to show thumbnails in the filepicker? If not, what distribution should I use that does? My PC is very old, like, it is an HP pavilion g6. With about 4 gigs of RAM.


Thumbnails like that is something people have been asking about for a long time now. There are patches floating around I think, but nobody with power within the GTK project seems too interested in adding such a feature themselves. I get around that issue by using my regular file manager and drag the file I want over to the application I want it open in (that's also something that can be inconsistent, not everything supports drag and drop).

QT applications (that would be anything KDE and related applications) has a file picker that supports thumbnails. So it might be worth trying QT and KDE alternatives to the applications you use. Kubuntu comes bundled with KDE, and I'm sure you can use KDE with Mint as well.

I want to enjoy free software on my desktop systems, but I think these kinds of things makes free software a little annoying outside of CLI tools. I wish desktop environments were a lot more consistent and supported these kinds of features.

Crypto thread? Personally I think crypto is the future. No more centralization, no more states fucking you in the ass.
I also don't want to become a wage slave so I hope to make it thanks to crypto. Life is too short to not do what you like.
What cryptocurrencies have you invested in sushinons? What are you bullish on?
It would be cool that we all make it.

Personally I am extremely bullish on Bitbay. I missed the Ethereum train but I think Bitbay will be the next moon mission in 2018. It is the sole working decentralized marketplace and trustless contracting platform while fixing many BTC flaws and planning to have a decentralized peg that brings price stability by preventing volatility, especially from whales shady manipulation. The price is still fucking low (23m market cap) so there is a lot of growth potential. For instance, to have a x2 ROIs with ETH, it would need 30 fucking billions of dollars, while with bitbay it would only need 23m. It is far more likely in the latter for this very reason.
Pics related why I am bullish on it. It has both mainstream and darknet potential.

Let's try it again. Only comfy posts below this post.


Oops, I forgot to unlock it.


I wish I'd had bitcoins before the recent forks – I could have doubled my money, twice. Extra money for investing is hard to keep on hand.

The other currencies that interest me currently are Ethereum and Monero. Monero seems like it is starting to pick up use within the Darknet, and if this illicit popularity takes off then I think its value could balloon suddenly like Bitcoin did years ago.


Let me warm you too that Ethereum is a ticking bomb. It uses PoW like Bitcoin so it has the same problems than it (extremely slow tx processing, centralized by mining mafias and enormous waste of energy/ressources = is not viable). The worst of the worst is that it is fucking bloated to death.
Look: https://etherscan.io/chart/chaindatasizefull
Right now a full node is fucking 350gb and its growth rate keeps getting faster.
This will lead to two options: either it will crash at some point, or either it will get centralized. Also most of its token is vaporware that is not used.

Also Monero is PoW so it has the same problems of it too. Most importantly, privacy tech only interest a few. Normies do not care about it.


>PoW is a waste of electricity
I disagree. The amount of energy used by traditional banking infrastructure is far greater. If PoW-based currencies become more popular, its energy use will probably be the same as the traditional banking system. Lower for Monero's PoW because it is memory/cache bound.

Seconding this. Even if not the original images, just the source for the term. I've read about Mkultra before and never saw this particular concept. Spent a couple of hours researching this just now, and I found out about the conspiracy of the sentient black goo in the sewers of London, about British computer scientists committing suicide en masse in the 80s, but nothing for the 'semantic virus' stuff.


For some reason I'm having difficulty believe we're anywhere near cracking how to make successful Basilisk hacks.


I find it pretty boring but I've never gone all-in and actually looked for scary shit.

The most fucked up thing was that i was on the (Uncensored) Hidden Wiki and there are all these articles about child pornstars. About their lives and their 'careers'. Creeps me out makes me sick. They also straight up linked to child porn onions, most of them were labeled 'inactive' but some were active.
[spoiler]I didn't click that shit of course.[spoiler]


I'll remind you that the CIA is the same organization that tried using gypsies to spy on the reds.
Spoiler alert: it didn't work


It's a copypasta.

The most interesting thing I've found on darknets is a guide to sucking dick.
Otherwise it seems to be indexes and dead links.

"Anything that can be done to a rat can be done to a human being."
As technology progresses that quote only becomes more and more horrifying. I am not looking forward to the future.


people on lainchan.org (ante-schisma) have literally argued with me in the past that "it's totally valid to interpret cyberpunk as actually validating my ideal totalitarian society" Always nice to be reminded that not everyone is an idiot like this.

It would be nice if you were to elaborate more on your post and not just post random links that some people might not want to click on. It might come of as spammy :^)


Nice site.
Why haven't you linked lainchan.org?
inter-chan drama aside it's a very good resource and i would certainty classify it as a 'Cyberpunk Community'.


Disregard this post.

Hello guys i need help im trying to make my own imageboard. but i am very new to this. i once installed vichan through gui years back but i get this issue when i try to install the program through putty.
[code]:~/vichan# php install.php

* php7.0-cli
* hhvm
Try: apt install <selected package>

Good luck, keep us posted (:

I was thinking it would be nice if we had a thread for sharing our own websites/homepages. Woah, here's one now! Show me your netspace sushi!

Here's mine. It's a complete mess, but I like it. It's kind of new well, technically it's existed for a little while, but I only started working on it recently, so it's missing a lot of things, and there are a few links that 404. Though it's hosted on neocities, it's only slighty Lain themed.

That works as long as it's simple enough. If the guy uses some kind of farfetched JS framework that generate css on-the-fly or has a 10MB source complete with templates applied in real time, you're not going to be able to easily know how it works.


very true, but imo that's a silly way to make a website anyway, especially a personal homepage

>trial and error
yes, just do this. i basically know nothing about html and css but i did fine. just look up stuff on w3schools and have fun making what you want to make. also, neocities.org has free hosting for simple websites if you dont want to host yourself.


Been a really long time since I didn't update it.
