When Tor Browser accesses to a clearnet site, how it knows whether or not it has a .onion address?

>except by looking on the clearnet
Find a hidden service that aggregates known onion addresses I guess. There's no way to discover onion addresses other than someone posting about them somewhere. They're called hidden services for a reason.
>>1103 (OP) 
This shouldn't be in it's own thread. The answer is that the header provides an 'onion-location:' tag, as this anon indicated. >>1106 It's from the source, not the browswer, and btw you don't need Tor Browser to read this (or any other tag). Just read the header itself with any suitable program (cURL, for example). Next time, put something like this in QTDDTOT, OP.

BO/Mods can move posts and threads into other threads relatively easily if necessary.
My opinion of *TDDTOTs has soured, as it had with generals. I find them to be stifling. There's no ephemerality, no chance for bad threads to be pushed off the board as good threads rise. I dislike how they encourage obsessives to backseat moderate. It puts more control for shaping the atmosphere into the hands of the moderators.
anyway, tor-chan has a cute face!

>For a few hours today all v3 onion addresses on the Tor network were down. This appears to be a new kind of attack which affects the entire network and involves overloading the consensus authority nodes.
>You will currently not be able to access any v3 onion addresses, what is happening is unknown, but it is potentially a huge attack on the entire network. Earlier today I made a post outlining consequences I would be putting into place to deter markets from funding DDoS attacks against each other, as the potential to scale and completely kill every node on the network is a very real potential outcome. Now everything is down and I have no idea if this has sped up the process of this occurring or if it is even an attack at all, all I know is, this is big.
>Reddit post by u/hugbunt3r This attack began after Dread forum owner, HugBunter made a post stating the consequences for market owners who continue to attack rival markets.
>The recent/current attacks on multiple markets have been troubling after we’ve all had a good break for some time and things started to heal and become stronger.
>We’ve now had large scale attacks hitting the likes of WHM, DarkMarket and apparently some other services, although I cannot really confirm any others.
>I’d like to outline the main issues with this here. Firstly, /u/Paris and /u/mr_white ‘s work on /d/EndGame has been amazing and has allowed us to all have some really good filtering processes to limit malicious traffic from hitting the application layer and dropping their connections for v3’s where possible. Along with our collective knowledge of the attacks since February 2019, we have some very solid configurations that allow us to scale enough to stay ahead of the attacks and continue scaling alongside it. This is the absolute best protection we as service operators can currently provide and it works, but at many costs.
>We’re not really any closer to seeing a Tor PoW implementation that will seriously improve the situation, but the position we’re in with our own developments is a hell of a lot better than when this all started. There are things I haven’t disclosed publicly because of the potential for abuse, but a lot more worrying things have come from these attacks, costs that aren’t of the monetary kind. The seriousness of the attacks’ will probably become clear at some point. Consequences for Markets
>Consequences for Markets I am aware of at least 2 markets that have paid for attacks against other markets within the last few weeks. I also know of one wishing to pay for retaliation attacks.
>This behavior from market admins is absolutely unacceptable and it will not be tolerated. You have [b]no idea[/b] of the ramifications this has, it is way beyond just taking your competitor offline, inadvertadly, but you are causing a problem that is a great deal worse without even knowing it, if market admins wish me to disclose these other issues to them, they can contact me directly and you will soon rethink your poor business strategy.
>– From here, there will be extreme consequences for any Market admin found to be funding attacks against any other service, market or not. You know who you are and I won’t publicly out you here for it, for the time being.
>Any Ads/other promotional material will be indefinitely disabled You may have your Subdread banned You will be delisted from Recon You will be delisted from DDF Most importantly, your own service will be attacked. This is where it ends, I’m not sitting through another storm of attacks.

Ricochet Refresh is what you want.
It's fork of Ricochet (now abandoned) which was an alternative to TorChat.

About Ricochet Refresh

Ricochet was launched in 2014 as a different approach to instant messaging that doesn’t trust anyone in protecting your privacy.

Ricochet Refresh uses the original Ricochet open-source software but has improved on it substantially, such as upgrading its security and making it compatible with Tor Onion Services v3 instead of the older v2.

We believe software like Ricochet is important to protect freedom of expression for whistleblowers, activists, and journalists worldwide.

>instant messaging
>for whistleblowers
Choose one. The sheer amount of metadata instant chat generates is enough to fuck you over.

BitChan has been updated to v0.10.0 and is looking for people to try it out. It's a decentralized imageboard that runs on top of BitMessage. You can create and completely control your own public or private board, globally moderate as an owner, add admins who can also globally moderate, moderate your own instance locally as a user, upload literally anything with size limits theoretically up to 100gb. Uploads can be sent purely over BitMessage or you can choose to use a hosting service. Uploads that use hosting are subjected to heavy duty protection: every file is zipped, encrypted/password protected, the zip's header is removed and random chunks of the file are removed before being uploaded. The removed parts are hidden in the PGP encrypted message that's sent over BitMessage. Once the upload is received the zip is put back together again, decrypted, unzipped and displayed in the thread. 100% of BitChan traffic happens over tor. Private boards prevent posting from all but explicitly added IDs. The permitted ID list can be edited by the owner at any point to include new IDs or restrict old ones. On public boards any ID can post until it is banned, but because of how BitMessage works, you can always just make another ID. Communications on every board are PGP encrypted. This means that even if someone somehow guessed the board name on BitMessage (basically impossible for reasons I won't go into here), they would be unable to read anything without also having the BitChan PGP symme

I didn't have time to try it out yet but that seems like a really good idea. A much better one than blockchan or zeronet.

That's a lot of stuff that's already in there. Can't I just use it like newsgroup?

So this is in essence zeronet with secure defaults like everything routed through tor? Question to OP if he is the developer, can users engage with it without seeding back?

I think one of the larger concerns with zeronet and I2P is that while yes you might have "plausible deniability", that doesn't actually mean anything when we're dealing with the kinds of glow niggers that might target users. I think if acting as a seeder, or essentially having your network function as a "node" be an opt-in feature rather than default would ease the opsec concerns. Though this would be a hindrance to the efficiency of the network so maybe it's retarded.

Being routed through tor by default may be enough to alleviate concerns of being essentially a node for CP distribution if a board decides that's what it wants to be, but the optics of this reality are also terrible and why I think I2P has not taken off despite being at its core better technology than tor.

Something I've noticed with the failure of art teaching in schools is something that parallels with the failure of teaching programming in schools: Lack of structure.

When I say 'structure' I mean the teaching of craftwork that can be used as baselines to make things solid, sound and good. pic related is one of 25 pages dedicated to guidelines and overall structure of drawing figures. Anyone can draw or make art, but everyone knows the difference between good and bad art- except for idiots, that is. 

What I'd like to know, is how this can be paralleled to it's programming equivalent. I hear from programmers about how important math is- and I agree, but my problem with that, is that math's emphasis feels like it's either for magus-tier programming, or is so basic that it immediately fades into the background. Because of this, I feel like I've learned all I can at this stage but nobody knows anything on the level up except for pros who want peers rather than students.

I've heard "just do it" or "practice dude" but here's the thing: practice doesn't make perfect, it makes permanent. Trying to undo the damage of bad habits is effort on top of learning things the right way, the only saving grace is that is gets easier as you do it more. 

In conclusion, what is good programming structure? How can use it to be a better programmer and actually feel more than a just like a permanewb?

>They aren't tied to OOP at all.
They are conceptually tied. If you have generics, you need types with associated operations. That's an object (by the OOP definition at least.) Even in Haskell or C, you can write OOP code. Not necessarily a good idea of course, but feasible.
Replies: >>961
That definition seems uselessly broad. What can you even say about OOP in the abstract at that point?
Replies: >>962 >>963
>OOP is uselessly broad
It's a cult anon
To answer more less vaguely: Objects are a formalized construction in CS, while OOP is just a set of practices that emerged over the last few decades. An OOP language is a language that facilitates and encourages various arbitrary design decisions using objects. Just because you have one or two data structures with some function pointers, that doesn't mean your code is object oriented; you just used some objects. Object oriented programming is the process of building a program entirely (mostly) out of objects, and the "best practices" around doing that. 

Of course, most code bases aren't fully OOP, because it's not a particularly helpful tool for modelling the structure of software. It's really only useful for interfacing between high-level components. Most commonly, it's just a set of practices to build software out of pajeet tier lego blocks without having the whole thing collapse. I suppose that's some kind of merit, but it's definitely not good design.
>>574 (OP) 
Seems you have good intentions and an interest in doing a good job as well as learning your field OP. If this guess is true I assume you already know C and haven't touched the likes of C++, Python, Rust, and so on for that reason.

You should go learn some assembly language, read Practice of Programming, Programming With POSIX Threads, C Interfaces and Implementations, source code from OpenBSD and Suckless, and other books and source I don't know.
Assembly will give you a better understanding of what compiled programs are like, it's useless to wank over progarm design when your program isn't the source but rather the machine code it compiles into. The other suggestions should be self evident.
