I recently found out that Brave just added that as a way of using .onion domains on Brave. As good as Brave is, it's not as secure as Tor. And hell, even Tor isn't so safe since there are small zero-days and issues with security if you're using specific sites regularly enough to be tracked.

I never really trusted TOR and its "untracability", but considering not everyone is a part of the bog gov't, that can be more than enough for guaranteeing an user's anonymity.

Anecdotal, sure but I spent a while wondering "How" recently.

If you think you're safe using TOR browser, posting or finding info or dissident stuff, evading some bans, having different accounts for whatever reason and not getting them linked or because your DSL comes with a static IP and now browsers and OSes are like sponges that will get you identified, hacking or anything, remain skeptic.

Elite proxies and other things like that are a thing of the past. Only good to maybe override a regional block on some shit site. For most websites you should be fine with TOR, or I believe so. But I never expected that from a site we know well, one of the admins knew how to do it. And he did it!

No name will be given but I had a chat with him, either you're bluffing, either you're skilled, and well if you let me know that, you're based.

Imagine, I make a trolling account on a /pol/ forum. Register the email adress from a proxy in Germany on a PC I just connected on the internet. My network of course, behind a NAT router blocking what should be blocked.

It's running LinuxMint 19 64bit, XFCE, all up-to-date, apt-get the TOR package and all run smoothly, last version installed, and I think it's safe, let's try this out, since my customer wanted something safe.
>Shitpost in the aforementioned horse-politics forum, and the next day, get caught. «samefag!»
With hundred of users on this place at once, it can't be a wild guess, and go through a long process of repeating the experiment, finding what leaked.

2017 already there was a secu fault since a simple file:// could identify your machine. Even with a minimal lot of scripts loaded I wonder how this could have been possible. I repeated the process checking what most can do, with nothing relevant so far.

I'm not bragging anywhere, not on IRC or Discord about that troll account or even suggested its existence, which would leak. My wildest guess would be on the metadata from uploading an avatar for my guy, that could carry a signature of some kind, but that again is unlikely.
TBH, It was worth being banned from that site for this, afteall it's just a game but gets intresting.

Of course the admin could have lied and said ( On IRC, which I jumped in immediately, to claim my purity and play the poor innocent guy)
«Just kidding, I trolled you, it was random and indeed without proof, should've lift the ban you can move on, don't pay attention keep posting!» while not telling me he knew it was me. Or
«I recognized your style and punctuation and based a wild guess and baited you to admit and it worked.»
which would be a bold assume, and doesn't ressembles the guy, but since he mentioned cash,
«I know You're this Mote guy shitposting as that antifa on crack using TOR.»

And evasively hinted that yes, he made it. He tracked my original IP or managed to identify me over TOR, noscript, but this guy knows an exploit or security fault, and of course, he's using it.

Of course it's my abuse of trust, even small - wouldn't leak anything huge without at least using a throwaway phone with a free demo sim card with a few megs of data. But I could have used a random phone, or dumpster laptop on gentoo in a public wifi, a café, supermarket's or even spoofing my location.
Because even if you jump on the neighbor's wifi, a simple peek at the whois will reveal your location, and now on a small city, that's just begging for the wild guess/intuition, You should appear really at two different locations - home, no proxy or anything weird - and your troll, far away from there. Which you can get done with Tor.

You should NOT trust something that pretends to be safe, even with SSL and noscript, and a few stuff.

So far, after rechecking everything, my wild guess would be
- I use a rather odd resolution ( 1920x1200 )

- TOR, now even maximized puts a border to reduce the workspace to a certain fake resolution, like it's a security measure that given it out, instead of suggesting a common 1920x1080 resolution.

- It does keeps the aspect ratio, a simple rule of three reveals the native resolution and hints enough on the browser to link an user to another.

- Something else.

>TOR add-on.
never use any Tor addons or "tor tabs" always use...
1) Tor Browser (better because it doesn't have the same fingerprint as your main browser. also, set your security level to safer/safest in Tor Browser settings. Do not use any tripcodes, names or avatars AND always clear the meta-data from all files that you upload!)
Protip: if you use Linux, you can use https://github.com/micahflee/torbrowser-launcher to securely download and verify Tor Browser
2) Install plain tor and configure it manually as proxy or use torsocks (read https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Tor for more info)
3) Use Tails (safest)

Those pictures... heavy special snowflake syndrome. Women's solution to personal shortcomings: more style. Not reflecting and changing. Rather trying to make the look work more (which fails because if you're the problem you've got to fix that...).

I know many people fail at personal change where it's necessary but only women try to make the look work and if that doesn't work out everybody but themselves is to blame for whatever doesn't fit into their personal view of the world.
On top of that it's often a guessing what's wrong or what they refer to as they constantly avoid to clearly point at or name an issue. All part of the "you don't understand" victim role and to make their special logic work because if you neither know what they're refering to nor what's the issue with it you can't get on the argumentative level with them. It's nerve-racking.

BIRCH WORLDS - THE ULTIMATE SPACE SCIENCE THING
Anonymous
No.1139
1141 1142 1144
Today I learned about Birch Worlds for the first time.
They say that if a Black Hole is large enough, the gravity just above its event horizon will be about equal to earth's gravity.
Therefore, one can build a fucking huge artificial shell-world planet built around this black hole to exploit the earthlike gravity at the extreme planet size.
Because normally, a bigger planet means more gravity.
But black holes can piss all over that.
"They allow for normal gravity at extreme planet sizes", says the guy who told me about these.
The bigger the black hole is, the larger the shell around it can be.
"A theoretically infinite number of people could exist on a massive artificial planet built around a sufficiently large black hole, especially if a system of multiple layers of false world is built into the false planet, since there would be little meaningful difference in the gravity between one layer and another" says the birch world fans.
They say that on such a planet, the world would be so large that the world would seem flat to a normal person on the ground. Incomprehensibly large and utterly flat. A single lifetime of endless air travel in a single direction couldn't take you to where you started.
There's only one way to make this even more intense: Add a method for this colossal artificial world to generate energy from the black hole it's built around, letting it become self-sufficient.
Literally the only downside (besides standard theoretical science "bruh what's stopping the fake world from moving too much to one side and getting eaten by the black hole" stuff) is that trying to get off this world would be a bitch. Achieving escape velocity would be tricky.
Still, is that sick or what? A fucking huge theoretical artificial earthlike world that exploits a black hole to gain earthlike gravity.

I know this board is meant for doom-and-gloom science that could create a dystopia, but where else could I post this? The self-improvement board? The sports and shitposting board? The front page, despite its lack of relevance to politics or ponies?

Then again on such a world, long-distance communication between people would be a pain in the ass. FTL communication would be needed for any group to control the whole planet and that's probably never happening. The world's governors would be restricted to governing local areas. The word of a ruler and his rule would end at places his word and soldiers can't travel to in time.

A book or sci-fi work about a constantly expanding birch world. Where over time the world is being pulled apart for new populations.
A real incredible thing to have in any kind of tech is time-space manipulation.
Technically it is possible to achieve time travel as well, but the raw material and construction would exhaust the entire universe.

This is only theoretically possible, in practicality, the mass of the structure itself would generate its own gravity and rip itself apart with the slightest of movements. You'd need a super light, super strong material to build it, and you'd need more material than a single galaxy could even provide. Say you could construct it out of pure hydrogen, the most common element in the universe, there wouldn't be enough in this entire galaxy to do it.

Although, that's typical of the theory, there is application magnetically.
>Magnetism is found throughout the Universe. Magnetic fields are known to exist in planets, stars, accretion disks, the interstellar medium, galaxies and in active galactic nulcei (cf. the article on galactic magnetic fields). Often these magnetic fields are generated and maintained by magnetohydrodynamic dynamo action (e.g. the solar dynamo or planetary dynamos, which are described by hydromagnetic dynamo theory), and in many cases the magnetic field is dynamically dominant, determining the evolution of the object.
Topics studied within MHD include typical computational astrophysics topics, such as magneto-convection, MHD turbulence and hydromagnetic dynamo action. Typically, a multitude of intermittent magnetic structures are generated in such systems, e.g. magnetic flux tubes, loops, filaments and arcades. On the Sun and other stars, these magnetic structures may take the form of cool spots (sunspots) and magnetic bright points.
Magnetic structures can store enormous amounts of energy that may be released through reconnection of magnetic field lines (MHD reconnection) leading to solar flares and stellar or even galactic eruptions. It is in this way that the Sun causes storms in the heliospherical magnetic field and ultimately aurorae and space weather.

The government really does hide this stuff… And, only release the conventional. Rather than the unconventional as it should… There's much speculation that goes into this, and there's wealth of progress untapped due to the powers that be in our economies.
>the maximum theoretical efficiency would be 90 percent. Allowing for the inefficiencies introduced by finite heat transfer rates and component inefficiencies in real heat engines, a system employing an MHD generator offers the potential of an ultimate efficiency in the range of 60 to 65 percent. This is much better than the 35 to 40 percent efficiency that can be achieved in a modern conventional plant. In addition, MHD generators produce fewer pollutants than conventional plants. However, the higher construction costs of MHD systems have limited their adoption.
In general, it's much very revolutionary even in the layman's perspective which according to word of (http://battista.web.unc.edu/files/2014/02/introMHD.pdf), "Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is not a field of study for those with only high school equivalent mathematics and science knowledge… much mathematical rigor to simply understand its governing equations," I apply as layman. Nonchalantly as well. Doesn't quite matter to me in that aspect. I see potential in this that'll solve energy crises old and new.
