Does somebody using Haiku here?

Hmmm I learned that Fuchsia is related to Haiku.

No, I know one person who uses it as their main machine though. Do you use it OP? How's the software support? What about the license? Is it libre? Is it similar to gnu/linux? I dislike most operating systems nowadays, I can tolerate gnu/linux because it's not spying on me which I believe is a sad excuse to use some piece of software and I think that's telling a lot about modern OS development. I wouldn't mind switching to something completely different.

I used to use it on my main machine but stopped for various reasons that were mostly software support related and have now been fixed anyway. Also because it uses the mouse a lot.

Many command line tools work fine. Emacs doesn't work in gui iirc but QT programs work well. There are also a lot using its own toolkit which is much nicer to develop in than any alternative (except for the fact it's C++ which I don't like much). Couldn't really tell you about the license except I'm pretty sure it's free. It might come with driver blobs though. It implements quite a bit of POSIX and depending on what you use your Linux/BSD system for will feel familiar. It's single user though, can only boot into the graphical interface, and feels coherent, which sets it apart.

It's fast. Suspend didn't work, because it hadn't been implemented if I remember right, but that was okay because from an SSD it started in less than 10 seconds. Some people might want things faster than that - my needs were few and I appreciated the gain in battery life (some might argue I was infatuated to the extent of masochism).

It comes with a browser, I believe it works on webkit. It did what I wanted from a web browser, which isn't much, but also loaded some more Javascripty web pages without much trouble which some people will appreciate.

It uses keybindings more similar to macos - that is, the alt key is used for copying and pasting. This is a good thing and means copying and pasting works everywhere, even in the terminal without any faff. In a similar no-faff vein, the filesystem is excellent (it's basically a database), easy to navigate and use, and the file selection dialogue and file manager are exactly the same thing; when navigating or manipulating or doing anything with files, you can do something intuitive and it will work.

When I used the system, I tried to fully embrace Haiku life by using the Haiku programs. I used the Haiku IRC client, browser, media player, and email client. The email client by the way grabs emails into files, but instead of being like a maildir file they use the file metadata to store headers, and can be sorted very man of tastely in different ways because of this. There is a focus on file-orientation, like with UNIX, but it seems better thought out here - different to plan 9, and not necessarily better oPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Decades ago I wrote a silly PHP snippet that would inject itself into every writable PHP file it could find. It didn't do anything else and was trivial to find and remove, but I guess it counts.

Back when you could still use javascript to do weird stuff like block right click on IE/ Netscape, I added a "feature" that would lock the mouse in a central position with a dancing baby gif.
It was stupid, but I still smile.

Wrote a Visual Basic script in 2014 that copied itself to every drive the system has, and starts itself up at boot. If any new drive was plugged in, it'd copy itself to that drive as well.
It didn't do anything malicious, but I had a hard time completely removing it from all my drives

I use a lot of obscure websites, mainly imageboards, and I play on a lot of small vidya servers. I need a vpn so I can stop letting random people know where I live. I'd like it to be relatively obscure, so it isn't included in vpn blacklists. Are there any good vpns that aren't too popular?

 No.1556

To get around VPN blacklists, it might just be better to host your own on a VPS (ramnode, linode, digital ocean, hetzner). This requires a bit of effort to configure everything. The popular VPS providers might still be blacklisted tho.

Those that really care, can still find out where you live since browsers can leak your location in other ways, or they just recognize you.

I think a VPN is better used to access resources at home, or to prevent other people on the same WiFi as you from snooping on your activities.

The only VPN provider that I know of is Mullvad. They're more privacy oriented, but I don't know if the latency for you is good enough for video games. I don't know if they're good for regular browsing either.

>To get around VPN blacklists, it might just be better to host your own on a VPS (ramnode, linode, digital ocean, hetzner).
Most VPN blacklists are actually datacenter blacklists, so your VPS is likely to be blocked too. Instead of worrying about this, you should just boycott sites that use VPN blacklists. You're not missing anything.

>Those that really care, can still find out where you live since browsers can leak your location in other ways, or they just recognize you.

That's trivial to block. Websites shouldn't be able to see more than your timezone.

Hello, this is not a shill post. So I decided to create my own chan in python as a hobby (using the flask library) and this is what I have come up with so far. Just give me feedbacks here in this thread or there.

Currently you can only upload jpeg , jpg , png , gif, webm below the size of 4mb.

(IDK shit about frontend btw)

1. There should be more white space distributed evenly, especially the margins around the posts.
2. Text boxes in a form should be left-aligned.
3. Fonts across a form should be uniform unless denoting labels or sections.
4. Don't use <br> to separate posts. Use <div> instead.
5. Don't use <center>. Use a style with text-align: center or some other style.
6. Don't use inline styles if not necessary.
7. Don't use the full-sized images. Create thumbnails instead. Request the full-sized image on click.
8. Probably some other things…

I hope op does not follow this advice. It would make the site better in every conventional sense, but the unrefined unprocessed feel has charm that polished corporate sites don't.

 No.1547

>>1546
The truth is that the message matters more than the format. If you're bringing people together for a purpose, it doesn't matter if it's a website or an IRC channel. Anyone worth a damn will figure it out and most those who don't bother aren't worth the effort it would take to include them.

Inclusion is a corporate game, gaming for numbers. Authenticity and purpose is what the rest of us have.

Thanks for the advice and for showing the love in my site :). Means a lot.

I've been meaning to pick up a Nokia KaiOS flip-phone, but I've seen some hearsay about how it's kinda buggy, but it also kinda seems to vary from device to device, which seems weird.

But the app-system seems really cool, like something I could write apps for myself since it isn't locked in to the most bloated corp-lang in existance (looking at you android). Instead just web-type stuff.

I got stuck in a loop of the first seconds of the featured video, don't know what happened but it did. Maybe it was my internet or something got funny but whatevs, just give us an update on when are you allowing others to upload some stuff and if you desire a particular encoding or something along those lines. It really helps having more info on the shows, but I somehow feel the link to the full song might get taxing (as in a chore and not fun) if you end up having a lot in the future or if there's no video with the song
In any case it seems a very nice one sushi! I like being able to see the background image and the airing shows ones with a single click too.
And the ganbare beam was the cherry on the top

I'll have to do my homework but I wonder how bad it really is security-wise. I did some challenges illustrating how badly a PHP script could be on this level (XSS, bad input filtering, etc) but those are obvious ones and I'm sure there is plenty of libs around to solve this, not to mention complete frameworks.

I don't know anything about how common exploits involve the php binary itself or if it is just a collection of bad practice / poorly thought API choices giving PHP its bad reputation

 No.1474

I got somewhat comfortable with PHP by maintaining and customizing our imageboard software. I also learned Python originally by maintaining and customizing a chatbot. If you already know a C-like language, picking up a project can be a good way to really dive in there. Of course I read some tutorials here and there, but mostly I used manual pages to learn the specific things I needed to do.
