After using the same handful of wallpaper images for the last three and a half years, I have come to the realization that I should get some new wallpapers.

Post your favourite wallpapers and wallpaper sources.  Pics related are a few of what I've been using; screenshots from a dead game called Blacklight: Retribution.  I never played it myself but it had some neat visuals.

Ptychographic X-ray laminography: No trade secret or hardware trojan can hide

Every cell transmitter, phone and computer must be inspected. Silicon Trojans must perish.

Freedom for all is encroached when a few cyber terrorists can freely CONSPIRE to use microwave weapons and silicon trojans. While you are distracted with THEORY, they spread the PRACTICE: surveillance, theft, sabotage and murder.

Havana Syndrome is the result of hacked cell transmitters being used as a microwave weapon. Civilians are victimized daily, children included.

“Havana Syndrome: Are You Next? Electromagnetic Terrorism and Cognitive Warfare” at "hxxps://areyounext.help".

The future of privacy/security is clothing made of metallized fabric to block microwave imaging (enables theft of inner speech by observing minuscule throat/face muscle movements) and block directed energy attacks.

Give me the tl;dr
Replies: >>6736
Tl;DR of the first two, is that EMF weapons design seems to be hazardous to the health of those designing it for one reason or another, and the government is keeping it top secret. Cold war fears and all that jazz too.

The third is concerning the "Moscow Signal", which goes from 2.5 to 4 gigahertz at 5 milliwatts per square centimeter. What the paper is so concerned about, is the possible medical effects of microwave radiation above 10 milliwatts. Project PANDORA was the US's experiment of recreating the Moscow Signal and determining it's medical effects on monkeys so they can gauge it's effects on humans. 

From the paper, the study concluded that the frequency caused neural issues with the monkey while the monkey "worked". However, there is a LOT of missing data in what is merely two pages of an extensive report. What "work," was this monkey doing? What could potentially hamper the results of this test? What was the monkey's state of health before the test?

The fourth is a paper on how soviet standards are far different than american standards when it comes to microwave radiation, not too much to tell, since back then, there wasn't many sources of radio or magnetic radiation through electronics.

So what does this mean for the modern day?

Well, the thing is this.

A microwave oven runs at 2.45Ghz. which is technically 5mhz below the 2.5ghz of the bottom of the Moscow Signal.
Wlan and other Wifi technologies run at anywhere from 2.5ghz to 6ghz, which is both in and beyond the range of the Moscow Signal.

You will be assigned a port range to use (NAT). cloud-init and all of that nigger shit, is not being used here, only a small shell script and a daemon written in python.

No, I had some issues with libvirtd where it was hanging at random, and it's probably related to it being an older version. I will, though, try and get it back up under a new channel at a later date.

what in the cock sucking nigger shit are people thinking with build systems?
every fucking project i build either works by pure luck, or breaks because some package is the wrong version and the softwareniggers are too fucking dumb to grasp the simplest fucking concept like specifying dependencies correctly. to top it off there's always some new fucking stupid feature added to every fucking build system every week. even portage. every fucking time i have to read up on these new features to figure out what in the fuck these morons were trying to do.

Because the first good build system (Meson) was only made recently and hasn't picked up as many users as it should. Most programmers don't know programming itself and are too dumb to know better or they're in a state of learned helplessness and still think build systems are like mail clients which have never been done right. Also, nobody is taught how to write build definitions correctly and few can figure it out by themselves.

In their model, anything that maintains a key value store with respect to being up to date is a build system.
It makes sense. The tables are build instructions rather than values, which are then processed to make the final result. 
I guess the distinction is that a function either just returns you a result or needs to be called, whereas the build instructions generate automated results.

When you build a new PC or want to try a new distro (or any type of technology, really), what are some common things you do in order to get a feel for how it works?  I feel this topic is meaty enough to be worth its own thread, and I'd prefer for it not to be buried in the QTDDTOTT.

I've just finished building a PC to use as a Linux workstation, so now I can begin the time-honored tradition of distro hopping and bitching about how no single one has everything I want before ultimately settling on [distro you hate].  There is a decent volume of information about different distros out there, but most "reviews" are simply a feature list, a copy-paste from the distro's website, or a video of an installation.  They aren't very helpful for anyone who isn't a complete troglodyte, and I like to think I'm not that stupid.

I have a handful of things I want to do that will help simulate routine tasks, but so far they're all pretty basic:
>compile and run a simple C program
>install a new package with the package manager
>install a new programming language/SDK
>configure a chron job to clean up a folder every day
>ssh into a remote server and make changes to a file on it
>create a local git repo and push changes to a remote one

any /prog/fags here? what is it like handling programs made by trannies? is it true that gays code software better than the rest of us?
Replies: >>6514 >>6516
I am afraid the only fag here is you. Gays are not necessary better programmers. kys
I don't think gays or trannies make better software than anyone else. They are certainly better at annoying the fuck out of people and making themselves known, though.
Preferably you'd avoid tranny software whenever possible. If they really care about FOSS, then they should tolerate someone that doesn't like them making use of their software, but of course we all know how tolerant trannies are, so I wouldn't bet on them staying neutral in regards to Chuck the Chud  using xer software to run a neo-nazi forum.

Everything downhill ever since. I'd buy a windows xp handheld if they made one for retro gaming and such, just non-Internet things. It'd be neat if it had no wifi nor bluetooth. I wonder if an atompi can do it? Too big though. Win7 works they say but then mini-itx would be better for that.. when win7 works.  I still have a dell inspiron b130 and it runs an older project64 pretty good for common n64 titles. Older/weaker consoles even better of course. 
And yet systemd took Linux over and Linux comes with Chromium installed also now days I'm sure. The way you install things is dick with Linux. Javascript, cookies... why even complain? Post 2007 CPU's got backdoors in them to where they can hack from afar as I understand it rather than crack up close. Why move on past 2007 devices? Are you using Debian 5 on a 2005 cpu? 

It's okay I like Lakka and Slacoware version Puppy Linux and dual booting them using Pinn.

>Say something nice about it.
Most comfy OS I have ever used. Privacy and security concerns were limited and easy to deal with back in the day. Easy to modify to hell and back. Great useful programs out of the box for people to make their first baby steps with a PC. Great for video games old and new at the time. The definition of the home computer in the early 2000s.

Two years ago I build an offline XP machine from the best eary 2000s hardware I could find to play with some old games that don't run correctly on modern systems. Was fun to fiddle with the old hardware again. But oh man was it slow. Once the games were running it's fine, just like today. But everything else took it's minutes and seconds longer than you expect it.

What is the reason for the govt to spy on us? Do they really do it or is it just schizo shit? If they really did, how come the school shooter who says he will shoot up a school in instagram DMs the day before the shooting, doesn't get caught? Or is it that they don't think school shooters are more likely to be on sekrit clubs like 4chan, as proved by the neoouroncha shit how the japanese police was monitoring 2channel for violent people and caught the neomugicha copycat before he did anything, so they didn't pay any attention to normies threatening shit?

It's not like even they enforce their political ideology and curb wrongthink by spying on us. What do they get from spying on people? Ross Ulbricht was caught because of bad opsec and a simple google search, they can't even track a literal drug cartel with all the spyware they use.

Yes they do it. Mass-surveillance is pretty easy to do since everyone is on social media and has a goyphone.

>how come the school shooter who says he will shoot up a school in instagram DMs the day before the shooting, doesn't get caught?
Remember Waco? Can you trust your government? ((( They ))) get more money for the next budget if there are terrorist and school shooters. It's not just about pure money but also politics. 9/11 was known beforehand (dancing Israelis et. al.) but it wasn't stopped? Why? I bet it was because of money and the Patriot Act (and to get casus belli to attack middle eastern countries).

>>6476 (OP) 
They want absolute control and ownership of everything, from your body to this planet, to the universe. They can't track everything yet, but that is the goal, because they want a system of universal slavery that will last forever and that can never be opposed. Just look at what is happening in the world right now. Agenda 21 has already happened, and Agenda 2030 is being implemented right now. They are already trying to take away people's land and talking about banning car ownership. There is no amount of power that they will be satisfied with.

At this point government spying, and corporate spying is pretty-much-accepted-as-fact regardless of what they're actually doing.

the NSA spy-ops are generally seen as gov spying on citizens for stupid reasons. I don't have it personally, but there's a repost that details how there's a recon organization for the US armed forces that basically is the eyes for actual threats against our nation without the need for spying on citizens. 

I don't know, but I have three hypotheses on just why they spy on citizens.
Law Route - "War is changing, we need to look for threats within ourselves,"
Neutral Route - "Better safe than sorry, everyone else is doing it anyway,"
Chaos Route - "Nobody can be trusted, we will not survive an uprising without this,"

Believe it or not, most of the "wow, you're so paranoid for not having a facebook/instagram/google/pintrest/tiktok account, lol." types are either out-of-touch wannabe-influencers, shills, or bots.

Most normies are actually sick of feeling like all their tech is watching them, they're just afraid and don't know what to do to fix the problem. Besides, it's not like anyone with a cell phone had a choice in that their personal data is being treated like another piece in a spreadsheet to be used as a convenient blackmail tool.
