Does anyone else like older tech? I usually like computers and OS's from the 80's. If you have some old computers you like…plz share them


I have kind of a fetish for old Macs and Mac operating systems, because that's what I grew up on. I mostly run things on emulators for convenience, but I have a Mac Plus, an original iMac from 2000, a Color Classic, and I used to have a Performa but it died on me. I'm hoping to track down a Mac LC like the first machine my family ever had.
Unfortunately running older hardware can be kind of a pain in the ass so like I said, most of the time I just run an emulator on a modern system, but I really enjoy running old software on old equipment.


I have freedos installed on a partition, it's very very comfy. The OS and the programs. If only I could get soundblaster support on this laptop.

I have a Personal System/2 but the clock is dead and I don't feel comfortable replacing it.

I also have a home computer that I don't have a CRT for.


I'm interested in using older computers so I can browse the internet with out the kikerosoft tracking everything I do.

Biotechnology is advancing at a rapid pace and could soon usher in a new industrial and medical revolution. With promises of on demand organs, better treatments for disease and cancer, designer babies, cognitive enhancement, increased longevity, greener and safer industrial processes, more productive crops and many others biotech could completely change our society. How do you think technology like CRISPR, artificial wombs, electrical brain stimulation, organ printing, and other advances in biotechnology will effect society, /mlpol/?

We would get a slight power up and (((they))) would get a major boost and don't forget the good goy pills are also getting much more effective. They could have a population with an average IQ of 115 and have them completely pacified on psychiatric drugs.

>MIT Achieves Breakthrough in Nuclear Fusion
New experiments with helium-3 in a magnetic confinement tokamak have produced exciting results for the future of fusion energy, including a tenfold increase in ion energy.


Are we getting closer or are we 20 more years away?
What will happen when memefusion is GO?
Will governments or private companies engage in a rush to the moon to harness He3 from the surface?
And further: Eve Online, or Gay Space Communism?


I've always been kind of skeptical of nuclear fusion. It's been "20 years away" for over 30 years now.

There are many projects more or less in advanced prototype stage

> for people which NEED limb, torso or other part of body replaced. Like war veterans
we've already seen people amputate themselves "in solidarity" of cripples (and probably some underlying fetish)

I can bet my left nut that hipfreaks will jump on it as soon as avaiable, maybe propped up by the media showing "brave" cyborg popstars, sportsmen a la Pistorius or some silicon valley religion.
When lifelike, feedback-enabled augs will be ready, they will spread further beyond the ones in need.


>When lifelike, feedback-enabled augs will be ready, they will spread further beyond the ones in need.
I feel sorry for all the losers who rush out the buy the first season of augmentations, only to feel like shit once they see all the newer, better augmentations come out.


Never buy an augment at launch.


Only a fool would do that.


I think we could see genetically modified super probiotics pretty soon. Those have the potential to do anything from reducing your risk of cancer to increasing your IQ.

The names… What do they mean? A culture of men with no names with names chosen for them? What does it all mean? What culture is this? What will it entail?


The title was a play oo words with the title Atlas Shrugged, particularly relating to lack of identity with the citizens while still keeping a semblance of names.


Names are gone and so is Invisi. What's a poster to do?


I hear it was a misunderstanding. Writer thought Atlas held up the world like a group of turtles and elephants. He doesn't, he keeps the sky and land separate.

How many layers of autism OPSEC are you on?

My router runs DD-WRT (Hardened), I use DNSCrypt, and I have a librebooted Dankpad running OpenBSD. (I use the thinkpad for things that require privacy) and I follow the obvious practices of OPSEC.

My main machine runs Debian GNU/Linux using only free software. I dual boot with windows server 2017

My home folder is encrypted using eCryptFS over in GNU/Linux land

Are you German?




OPSEC is a meme. Software is nothing more than placebo when your hardware may potentially be compromised without your knowledge.


Big Brother isn't the only threat out there. There are countless weaker threats on the web that you can defeat with good security practices.

Just because you may not be able to defeat nation state level intelligence services that may have compromised hardware at a base level doesn't mean that you should give up on security. There are plenty of Chinese scammers, drunk Russian hackers, and the 400 pound basement man known as 4chan that you can stop.

I have a sci-fi universe I've been working on, set 30 years in an alternate future with a theoretically ever-expanding timeline to match the current year.

I'm planning on using it for GURPS pen and paper sessions online and was wondering if people could look over it, suggest replacing things, and tell me what's wildly inaccurate.

So far we have

>Hillary Clinton elected president

>a Jeb! Bush suicide
>a trump assassination
>furry analogues for transsexuals
And more.


The Hillary timeline crashes into ours and sends us spiralling down into dystopia. I really don't want to live in that world it is a great premise for GURPS. And sadly I don't think there is any inaccuracies in your story if the first slide had come true.


pretty good, I shudder to imagine the world your characters must traverse in there.

So I found this comic while reading about bitcoin privacy. I never thought about it this way.
I guess it makes sense that you don't really need complicated password, hard to remember, just put it in a phrase which computer will take ages to solve even though its easy to remember for you in particular.
But couldn't this make it easier for people to know you to break to your passwords? Still I guess it would be pretty difficult.

This unironically made me think. What are your thoughts, /tech/?


ugh, I'll start with something that makes sense first and then move to harder passwords later. Really need to do a cleanup in my PC files and stuff first…


>make it easier to break your passwords
A few considerations:
You are supposed to use random dictionary words, not a phrase you make up yourself.
The "Entropy" mentioned is a measure of pure randomness, so even if someone knows you used this method you can be sure of your safety if the entropy was high enough.

Personally I think this comic is a great advance in security for normies, but if you care about this sort of stuff you must to combine it with opsec.

The first principle is to know your adversary, which in practice means you choose an adversary to defend against.

For example: Your bank account might attract professional crackers with scripts for dictionary attacks and fuzzing, but they don't know you personally so a nonrandom passphrase may well protect against them. Your friends and family may know about your interests, but you might bet on them not having the expertise to build a dictonary and run scripts. If a bank employee or the state by extention wants access, your password aint gonna do shit. So even though your bank account is a high-profile target a nonrandom passphrase is surprisingly secure.

This does make assumptions about your situation. If all your personal information is available online it's possible to build a dictionary to solve your passphrase. Don't put personal information online. Personally I have some close friends who have the expertise to build a dictonary e.g. from all the emails I sent them, so I have to be more careful in selecting the passphrase, that's what random words are for.

The second principle is to know who has access. E.g. Who has access to your desk and does this provide a path for information to leak to the adversaries you chose? If not you can leave all the sensitive stuff right there on your desk.

I have been looking for something more secure then discord for some time now.

I found only two programs with ideal ratio of securit and ease of use.

First I found out about Riot-Matrix on https://about.riot.im/

I find it pleasant to look at and its pretty anonymous but encryption seems to be lacking a bit.

Only recently I also found out about Wickr on: https://www.wickr.com/

This one strikes me as a bit minimal but more noticeably more secure.

Anyone here willing to help me out and test these?
My name on Riot is: @mancock9999:matrix.org
And my name on Wickr is: muttela

What is with you and hating your flags? A mod gave me an Israeli flag three days ago and it still hasn't been changed


that's because it fits. I only fit in an american flag, so that's the only flag for me.


You fit the LGBT, Israeli, and Romani flags just fine to me
