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>

If you're a beginner, use Vichan. Lynxchan has some nice features and it's fast and it's still actively developed, but you have to be an expert to install and use it. I tried experimenting with it a while back and it was pretty awful to get working and to modify, though I cobbled it together eventually. You also probably aren't going to be able to run it without shell access to your server, which means you need a VPS instead of a shared host, and you have to be good at using Linux on top of knowing node.js. Beginners should stay away from Lynxchan. It will be an incredibly frustrating experience.

avoid vichan and any other pre-made ones, and make one from scratch.
I made a pretty mature one in Elixir + Phoenix + Postgres awhile ago, it was lots of fun for the most part.

Not horror, more unnerving, but doxxing is a story I've seen play on the 'darkweb', more like drama sites and troll forums.

I've seen people post the reddit account of someone they found annoying then by going through their history they found accounts they cross linked to, small bits of data that build to a bigger picture, and tons of data that can be matched to IRL accounts. In >3 I've seen internet rando's connect a BDSM account to an actual IRL identity. Not even sushi rolls are safe because one imageboard 'doxxed' a user, they never wiped their cookies and their typing style/hill to die on matched another poster.

Of course it's unlikely to happen to anyone here, but it's unnerving to think all the dumb social media posts you made 5 years ago could be tracked to you IRL. Most people doing illegal stuff online are not caught through extreme hacking measures, they're caught because they made a slight slip up that links the tiniest part of their online profile to their IRL one.

I was taking a course that involved writing a PID controller in a simulation, and it was amazing that it worked at the end. It makes me feel like some kind of god.

Have you guys experimented with any type of robotics?

Speaking of PIDs, I found this simulation yesterday which explains the concept behind it in an interactive manner. It was more enlightening than my entire automation course.

I had some wild delusions about making robot exoskeletons when I was a ki. That's the closest I ever got to robotics…

That and seeing how RC cars' wheels are controlled.

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.

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.

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

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.

it's a little expensive for a dumbphone($60), and still runs a really basic OS. Most new dumbphones out there are running KaiOS now, which I'm curious about since they sit in a nice middle ground of functionality.

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.
