I love this site: http://san.aq/
The functions are simple and unoriginal, and the site hasn't changed for years, but I sometimes visit just to look at it. Hint: try the 'exit' button.

How I found this site might be of interest. On Startpage and Google (unfortunately DDG has not implemented this yet), you can type 'site:XX', where XX is a country code domain name like 'uk', 'au' or 'jp', to get a list of the websites which end in this code. Now, I had fun for hours just trying out different country codes and looking for new sites, an activity which can be quite rewarding. 'aq' is the code for Antarctica, so trying 'site:aq' mainly returned the websites of research stations, but san.aq was in there as well. It was a nice little find.





Bookmarked. Thanks sushi!

How much does the average sushi roll's computer cost?
How many of you own fancy GPUs/processors, and how many of you prefer simpler/cheaper hardware?
Does anyone own more than 2 or 3 computers? If so, why?
As always, keep it comfy~
Thanks for your input!

I feel a computer quickly becomes disposable when you're rolling in cash and don't really have to save up to be able to afford a nice computer. The computers that I've built since I got a job are just computers that I use, but I love the computer that followed me through my NEET years. That computer wasn't fast or anything special, but I did everything on that computer.


A bit late to the party, but I recently upgraded from a Lenovo U41-70 to a Thinkpad T470s, since it's the PC my school is requiring us to use for our class. Had to pay €990 for it, but since the model we were given sells for about €2000, I'd say it's a pretty good deal. Came with Fedora, threw KDE on it and it's pretty comfy, if a bit hard to use for someone who's been on Windows for years.


My main machine cost about £600 back in 2011
It's had a couple of new drives and a new GPU since then, I put most of the cash into the motherboard and processor so it's aged fairly well.
The processor's an i5 2500k, easily one of the best investments I've made, 6 years on and still quicker than the average mid range processor. 3.7GHz stock, but does 4.5GHz just fine with a fanless air cooler.
It's single core performance is still up there with the best of them, which is useful for me as I use a lot of CAD and simulation software that doesn't really scale to multiple cores efficiently.
It's nice for the occasional big compilation too.
I don't play much vidya anymore, so the GPU isn't that useful to me, originally a GTX560, now a GTX970 bought from a housemate with more moARMney than sense when he upgraded to a GTX1080).

When I'm not at home I share the eternal comfiness of >>202 with a T400, though lately I've been tempted by the lightness and everlasting battery of a chromebook (Running Linux of course).
When I scrape some cash together later this year I'm going to have a go transplanting some modern low power silicon into an old T60 chassis.


desktop is about 400 USD rn, if i earn enough to upgrade it'll jump to abt 600. I also have a laptop that was like 300, for school. I really wish i could justify buying a newer hard drive or ssd, but theres no real benefit other than convenience and they cost too much for me :(


File: 1507942780388.png (523.54 KB, 720x480, (G_P) Votoms (Remastered) ….png)

My current desktop cost me ~$1000 when i purchased it, but that was in 2011. Now my motherboard is showing signs of death and I'll probably get a new CPU to go along with the replacement. I don't really play games anymore at all but for some reason I still feel the need to get top of the line stuff. Trying to keep myself from going overboard when the most I do is TF2 jump maps on weekends.

I also have a X200T, but never use the tablet function. It needs a new battery and I've been thinking about putting an SSD in it.

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.

There is nothing wrong in making a crypto thread on /tech related board/ as it related. Also sushi is slow af slow af since Itamae is gone. You should thank me for posting.
Bitbay is not a pump and dump at all. You can verify it. I just explained what coin I love but you don't need to like nor to talk about it. It is not a thread dedicated to this coin but a thread on /crypto/. Also the post on Arisuchan is legitimate too as it is the /biz/ finance and economics board and no one whined except you. We even had a discussion until you came.
You should stop whining like that. I am on sushichan since a long time when it was under's Itamae and all. I am not ruining the moon. The chans are not your personal safe space.


Also accusing me of being part of a pump and dump is name calling. That is ruining the mood. If we can't discuss tech related stuff without getting insulted then that's no good.

>4chan frogs
You are a new here right?. Sushichan loves the frog. I will tell you a secret: https://sushigirl.us/pepe/
I guess you did not even know that the frog had a dedicated board on sushichan.
A /crypto/ thread on /tech related board/ is normal.

If you dislike crypto you can get out of the thread.


>You should thank me for posting.
Please go away.


If you don't want to talk about crypto in a tech related board, you can just close this thread and go to another thread. Why are you making such a mess? Sushichan is comfy and you don't own the place. Neither do you own Arisuchan.


Try again.

Does anyone have any horror stories of what's happened to them personally while exploring the "Deep Web" or just any type of trouble they got themselves in?


Yeah. I liked this sort of stuff, I was collecting "do not open!" links, shock sites and so on. And once saw a gallery of GIFs called "Semantic Virii", sorted by country categories. Thumbnails looked like weird collages, a lot like Picasso paintings I scrolled a bit and closed the page.
Years later I was researching illegal CIA projects like MKULTRA and "semantic virus" caught my attention. Turns out there is a way to construct visual sequence that embeds some sort of command, think micro-hypnosis. It consists of three stages: attention grab, cultural crack and "ordnance" which is actual command. Attention grab is simple, utilising natural desires (food, sex, etc). Cultural crack is complicated and depends on country of origin. It utilises norms and common imagery of particular society. Ordnance is usually a "trigger-response" pair which embeds command. I was happy that I did not scroll down to my country - who know's what it actually do to you.


The most fucked up thing I saw was a gif of some cp about a man fucking a toddler.


lescarydeepweb is a meme. all you'll find is horse porn and abandon sites that look like they were made by middlschoolers


Humanity can be really uncomfy at times.

So… basically the same thing as the clearweb?

What are the Comfiest apps you sushi rolls know of? iOS or android. Personally, I'm pretty fond of sudoku apps, a nice challenge but still relaxing.

Daygram. It costs like a dollar, but it's a great diary app. I used it everyday for at least six months before deciding to move to a physical diary. I just today uninstalled it and exported the entries to a word document, actually.

Any diary app would do, I guess. Putting one on your homescreen is a great and easy way to start journaling. I find it to be a great way to release my thoughts since I'm quite introverted and don't say much to others.


There's an app to scroll sushi for Android? Could i use in Overchan?


Duolingo just added a Japanese course.


Just when I think im done with that app, they pull me back in.

I cast my vote for 868-HACK. Its a turn based roguelike with resource management. You fight viruses and attempt to score points. Its kind of obtuse, but once you get the hang of how things work, its really good. On iOS and steam.


Clickpocalypse II: no cost, no ads*, no IAPs, the best idle RPG out there.

Advanced users of GNU/Linux (and I mean advanced), remember to try Source Mage GNU/Linux. True source-based distribution, and (in contrast with Gentoo and Arch) is:
Free from obfuscated and pre-configured code.
Fully committed to GPL, uses only free software (as in freedom) in their main package.
With even the documentation licensed as FDL.
Without 3rd party patches, sensible defaults or masked packages.
Doesn't need obfuscated python libraries, only bash.
No systemd (they've implemented their own init scripts system http://sourcemage.org/Init).
Uses clean dependencies as they came from upstream developers, which by the same provides instant updates.
Can heal broken installs.
Can also use flags.

Do you like Arch Linux's AUR? Do you like Gentoo's portage (or ports-like) package manager? With SMGL's "sorcery" you get all that. Making new spells (package build files) not found in the grimoire (repository of spells) is easy http://sourcemage.org/Spell/Book

Bash hackers welcome! Come and join http://sourcemage.org/

My desktop runs Gentoo on an i5-3570K with 8GB of RAM.
I'd love to run a source-based distro on my notebook, too, but I'm too afraid of the poor thing dying a heat death.


I distcc to help my C2D era laptop. Compiling larger projects like Firefox took a very long time when I only used the C2D in my laptop, but it went much quicker when I could distribute such things over to other more powerful desktop computers. Compiles should be much quicker, and your laptop wont run hot if you only configure distcc to compile things on your other machines.

You could also simply share the package directory from your faster computers. Depending on the package manager, it would simply install the already compiled package (CRUX ports works like this).


Portage can do as >>644 says. Build packages for your laptop on your desktop, depending on the architectures involved you may need the crossdev tool. Then it simply becomes a question of how you want to access these binaries from your laptop. I believe you can do this on a per-package basis as well though I just built everything on my server when it and my laptop ran Gentoo.


I have already looked into all options available to Gentoo, but unfortunately, none of them are flexible enough for me. distcc with a dedicated build server would be the only viable option, but I don't want to get a server just for that.

But still, thanks for your suggestions, sushis!


thanks for this OP. tried it out on an old Thinkpad and it really does feel easier to handle than say, Gentoo.

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
The program 'php' can be found in the following packages:
* php7.0-cli
* hhvm
Try: apt install <selected package>


never mind. i didn't have php supposedly.
but now that i run the program i get:
PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mb_internal_encoding() in /root/vichan/inc/functions.php:35

Let's talk coding and software, sushis, because I don't do enough of it and I really should. Let's hear about projects you're working on, stuff your coding, learning. Trade secrets, info, tips, whatever. Programming isn't something that should be done alone in a corner.

I guess if we need a thread starter, I want to brush up on my coding skills. I want to find something to play around with, something not as mainstream as the stuff like Java and C, but will still be useful in a professional setting, something I can make usable stuff out of.

Sounds just fine imo. I've been fiddling around with Ethereum for some time now. The dev team seems to like Go pretty much, ending all their github/wiki pages with

>Let's talk coding and software, sushis, because I don't do enough of it and I really should. Let's hear about projects you're working on, stuff your coding, learning.
I'm constantly reading about programming in some form; it's fun. I've been meaning to pay ECMA-48 proper attention, but I still read other documents more lately.

I'm mostly working on a development tool as of right now.

>Trade secrets, info, tips, whatever. Programming isn't something that should be done alone in a corner.

Even on the wired, we're still alone like this.

>I guess if we need a thread starter, I want to brush up on my coding skills. I want to find something to play around with, something not as mainstream as the stuff like Java and C, but will still be useful in a professional setting, something I can make usable stuff out of.

Lisp and APL have already been mentioned.

Consider learning a machine code; you'll use an assembler for this. Avoid Intel.


Recently I've been learning Haskell and recently wrote myself a simple file encryption program. I'm pretty proud of it and I'm finding Haskell and the whole functional programming thing really interesting. I'm considering learning something like OCaml as well as I hear that's getting real popular.


File: 1495137459575.png (42.08 KB, 723x476, napalm-v0.4-1.png)

I released v0.4 of napalm, my ncurses-based program for doing ASCII and ANSI art. This version is all about adding layers instead of having a single canvas. You can now import multiple files without overwriting everything, for example.

It's written in C, and I guess I learnt a new way to initialise a struct in the process. It's interesting to note that, since the first commit (612 LOC), the number of lines of code has quadrupled. Whether that's good or bad, I don't know.

The code is here: https://gitla.in/chibi/napalm


>Let's hear about projects you're working on
I'm making a pseudonym generator in C. For now it takes a string of characters in input and randomize them, the difficult part would be to make the output readable, so I have to detect vowels etc…

Do you sushis think it's possible to live off your own code projects via patreon or something?

"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 :^)
