Welcome to zzz/tech/
0. All global rules apply: https://zzzchan.xyz/rules.html
1. /tech/ is a primarily SFW board. NSFW is only allowed if spoilered.
2. Keep the topics related to technology and computing.
3. When making a thread, put some effort into the OP. Low quality threads and template threads will be bumplocked. Some low quality threads that have already been bumplocked can be deleted if too much fills up the catalog.
4. For the QTDDTOT thread and the meta-thread, there can be only one unless the reply limit has been reached. If the previous thread is at the reply limit, anyone can recreate those threads. Thread quality rules do not apply to these threads.
5. Low quality shitposting will be met with DELetion or all files in the post being unlinked (frogposting, wojaks, >he doesn't use [insert thing here], Reddit logo spam, etc.). Otherwise, shitposting is allowed but try not to derail threads.

Posting recommendations
1. Try keeping most of your tech support questions, software recommendations, consumer advice, and other questions that don't deserve threads in the QTDDTOT thread. If there is a specific thread for your question, try asking there instead for a faster response.
2. Try not to ask questions that can be found on any search engines. You will most likely be told to search more and not receive an answer.

Same here, I made all my money working as *nix sysadmin and software dev, using almost exclusively the tty. Even when I had to run X for whatever reason, it was just a simple window manager like the type that was popular in the 90's before desktop environment shits took over.

why is tech so full of absolute fuckjobs, that there are entire subcultures dedicated to being incompetent in a certain way
boomers who think "security model" is a word that just somehow makes their shit sound when thrown around. for example i just talked to one who doesnt understand that sudo is a placebo and threw that word in while trying to explain what purpose sudo serves (while giving multiple conflicting answers as he subconsciously realizes sudo doesnt actually have any well defined purpose that isnt retarded)
"hardware guy" knows fuck all about EE and cant even do SE, has some lore about which mouse is better because of this and that sensor, some headphone is better cus this and that driver. some LCD is better because this and that panel, but if you dig into anything they claim its always wrong.
enterprise faggot, thinks Java or C# or kubernetes are good technology. is afraid of using things that arent "battle tested", like python (dont get confused im not shilling python in fact that language is used by trannies)
sysadmin. doesnt understand the very most basic truths about computer security. they consider not clicking an email sage advice that took hundreds of years to discover. writes in some fuckjob language like shell scripting or windows batch files, adding all kinds of insecurities to his network. has some dumb configuration of windows domains / DNS / cloudshit on his network with lots of "security' things enabled while allowing some trivial rce and post co

i don't care, i blame AI and niggers.
I'd settle for more things to be excited about, even with the tribalism problem. AI is about to be shoehorned into everything so I'm not looking forward to needing computers or phones in the future. 
I'll own the 'privacy dork' hate, there's probably more that can be done than deleting cookies on exit - it's easy to feel defeated when the internet consolidated and left me behind though. I'm not normie enough to use the socials, I'm not hardcore enough to airgap and write my own code.
>>13464 (OP) 
It seems you have been staying too long in normalfag "tech" circles.
Normalfag tech discussion forums or sites are full of retard faggots who don't know anything because nobody can be rude.
Tech industry is the same because people who are good at talking or sucking cocks hold most power. People who know shit never get promoted and will get fired the moment he step over the line. 
>fuckjob language like shell scripting
There is nothing wrong with shell, it's very good for simple jobs.
>batch files
You are right.
It doesn't matter what field you go into. People get into tech jobs because of how lucrative they seem but aren't usually enthusiastic about it and are also only above average at best in terms of intelligence.

Anon, why aren't you using SimpleX on your LineageOS phone yet?
- just werks
- no phone number needed
- profile is on the phone and not on servers
- chat, voice calls, video calls, file transfer
- has servers, so you send stuff to people who are not online
- you can host your own servers if you want to
- has an a
- FOSS and on F-Droid
- has desktop application
I already moved my relatives to it.

SimpleX and Session are the only messengers that don't tie all your data to a phone number and my prepaid card is video verified with me and my government issued ID card and charged up using my bank account.

I had some doubts regarding Session:

Spam your CV like America dropped bombs on vietnam. Download all the apps, register to all the websites and start applying. They dont care if you lie, they only care that once youre in, you can do your job. And remember, hr always lie more than you, so dont feel bad about it. The only sucker is the honest one, everyone else lies. Just a few days ago my manager faked my cv to 6 yoe for a project interview(we do outsoucing).

Discuss radio-related stuff here. 

Bitch about telecom being cunts to Hams. laugh at VE7KFM's (and the rest of 14.313mhz's) continuous antics. Talk about how despite "radio's death" in the 90s-00s that radio as a technology being used even more during then and now. Bitch about how many chinkshit appliances that leak RF into the airwaves and the FCC doesn't/can't do shit. Have an existential crisis realizing that Wifi is pretty-much just radio.

I've been trying to make my own go-bag as a means of either listening/communicating on vacation trips, or in case of SHTF. Still trying to figure out my use cases and decide what I need and don't. It's so fucking hard trying to find a mobile rig that actually can listen to a wide set of frequencies and transmit only on what it needs to. Too many mobile rigs are just X amount of bands, and that's it, no FM broadcast, no AM no EMS or Airline.

how do I locate ham relay stations and/or increase my radio distance? What sort of devices do I need to buy to increase my range, and wher are they most affordable.
Replies: >>13412
I'm new at this as well but I believe you can use radioreference . com to  see all the repeaters in your area, at least in the US.  As far as increasing your range, you can either increase the power, repeater hop, or use lower frequencies, or all 3 if needed.

I thought we should have one of these. Someone from the QTDDTOT suggested these questions for the thread.

>best private mail host?
>best private browser?
>how do you stay private online?
>how do you airgap your phone?
>Best VPN

I imagine some people have made guides on privacy, so if you have any you can post them in this thread too.

which dns server do my anons use?
unbound opennic
I like having also Quad9 (as a backup)
unbound connecting to OpenNIC servers using DNS over TLS.

The good DNS daemons are dnsmasq, unbound, and unwind.
