At this point, people need to start being worried about ISPs cutting their lines for what they post online. What do you suggest for long range or cross ocean communication?

Replies: >>6807 >>6809
Until and unless WAN access for client-side hardware with general-purpose computing capability is entirely cut off (e.g.: OnLive MicroConsole but without even CPU cores or RAM) it will always be possible to build an overlay network atop the Internet or whatever replaces it. Even without installing a special autism browser, for instance, there are webshit-runtime VPNs that can indirectly connect to TOR or whatever.

An argument I've been seeing lately, and I think I agree with, is that TPTB are are treading a balance between stigmatizing and pushing truly fringe elements off the normienet slow enough, versus censoring such banal content so soon that significant fractions of normalfags adopt tools like proxies & P2P.

I'm not sure what that tipping point is, but the situation in fashier turd-world regimes like Saudi Arabia or China where most of the online population uses private VPNs habitually, isn't something they want in the "core" countries where the kayfabe of liberal democracy is still necessary.

Especially with some of the more ideologically lolbert central figures of the current Silicon Valley establishment starting to admit centralization is flawed enough to (even if it's just cynical buzzword mongering for now) dip their toes in darknet-like "Web3" projects such as Block/Bluesky and Libra/Metaverse, I suspect the pacing with which the noose is tightened around the clearnet will become more precarious and desperate very soon.

>Also, you can't go transcontinental with anything other than shortwave (then only at certain times of night for the longest ranges)
In some cases this is true. For greater than 1200 km / 750 mile propagation conditions are not always favorable for high data throughput. The Network is still a meshed system but on a much larger scale. Each node can provide 300-400 miles of continuous coverage with consistently high performance. This drastically decreases the amount of nodes required for a complex network. To bridge a connection across continents still remains a challenge.

>28MHz of bandwidth 
Incorrect, far lower. The Network has 12 kHz to 24 kHz of usable "bandwidth" but multiplicatives of that in data throughput. Channel capacity and symbol rate are independent of bandwidth. In modern telecom and signal processing there are several methods of utilizing one shared frequency space across multiple independent channels. Schemas like  2x2 or 4x4 MIMO carry over to HF far better than expected. Unfortunately due to the current archaic state of the amateur radio hobby baby boomers insist on doing 50 baud FT8 instead of 500,000 baud  OFDM so you don't see any of this in practice.

But perhaps you will soon.
Replies: >>6825
>Radio waves only really work until someone decides to get a radar and destroy the network. 
Spread spectrum jamming over HF is a difficult task to accomplish even for an actor with unlimited resources at their disposal. Most of the jamming that occurs is done against fixed AM stations with known time schedules and operating frequencies. If what you mean by "radar" is interference that degrades signal quality created from over the horizon radar systems this can be isolated and removed from a signal almost entirely. There is a spatial component of every EM wave.  For that wave or signal to arrive it has to follow a path in space.  HF allows for a far greater degree of directionality and signal resilience. Certain schemas can allow for a complete obfuscation of the originating point of transmission entirely.
>Moreover we can use satellites that doesn't require authentication
In many cases this is illegal and is just simply impractical outside of certain niche use cases. The segment of the RF spectrum that deprecated SATCOM antennas operate on are not designated for amateur or ISM use. 
Occasionally you will hear drug traffickers or radio pirates on them though.

>12 kHz to 24 kHz
Irrelevant, as that's per-channel using the default ITU channel assignments for mixed hobbyist broadcasters, intended so hundreds of such channels to share the 3-30MHz skywave spectrum. We're talking about a narrowly directional channel-aggregated link that would hog the whole thing.
>Channel capacity and symbol rate are independent of bandwidth

DRM D Mode can manage maybe 30kbps for a 20kHz channel. Any technique that can be used to squeeze more drops of blood from a few kHz of bandwidth, will yield proportionally greater returns from GHz of bandwidth. No matter how you slice it, shortwave links simply can't do more than an Mbps or so, in comparison to a single KU-band satellite spot beam doing hundreds of Mbps, terrestrial microwave at >10gbps, and optical at >100gbps per fibre.

As I noted upthread though, I see no reason we'll have to abandon simply putting overlay protocols atop the normie Internet (or whatever segmented thing replaces it) unless they stop allowing connections from client hardware with general-purpose computing hardware.

If there really was a war on citizens communicating then the government would restrict and monitor the import of radio equipment (the same way they do for gun and bomb components now).

How about if, assuming your config is actually new and not just copypasta'd from what would be an optional package in a binary distro, what you're trying to achieve with your build is similar to what some other people are interested in? Then some of (you) could maintain that as a package, regularly tested against the rest of the distro and better known to upstream for each release, which would make it less likely to break everyone's install including yours, reducing the amount of dicking around with configs any of you have to do.

Hardened Gentoo made sense when grsec was public and none of the compiler hardening was merged into upstream gcc. Compiling everything from source gave significant security improvements which were too harsh/unstable for a binary distro to deploy. Things like position Independent code + address space layout randomization, stack smashing protection, write xor execute etc. All these things are either picked up by binary distros now or impossible without kernel support.

Grsec invented a lot of the still openbsd stole. But yeah, openbsd is the only place to get it now.
But some of the hardening options aren't enabled in Linux kernel (that's why Arch Linux has a separate linux-hardened package). And disabling features (for example, via USE flags in Gentoo) reduces the attack surface. Moreover, some packages (mainly Firefox) can be linked to system libraries (instead of the bundled ones) which makes sure they are up-to-date and build using secure compiler options.

You must have never owned an ARM computer. While x86 has mostly standardized BIOS/UEFI and initialization, ARM is nuts. Chips requires blobs to boot up, non-mainlined patches, drivers and boot loaders all over the place. Some embedded board are still stuck with Linux 3.x and patched u-boot based on 2010 because nothing is mainlined. Good luck reverse engineering dtb if it is not mainlined.
Replies: >>7088 >>7719
That's firmware (and mostly for the accessory chipset), not the CPU itself nor its ISA. But yeah it's absolutely amazing that every other ISA (POWER[PC], MIPS, [Open]SPARC, etc.) uses standard bootloaders like OF or ARCS, but ARM is just a total free-for-all from OEMs, even the best supported hobbyist SBCs shipping reverse-engineered u-boot because SoCs are totally undocumented.

>I guess it also made the people at AdaCore got out of their comfy office chairs and started promoting their products more
IIRC, Rust is responsible for inventing solutions to some problems that dogged Ada for decades, which were subsequently incorporated into Ada. Until recently, Ada was significantly slower than unsafe compiled languages like C or Pascal.

Regarding SPARK specifically, rather than Ada in general, remember it's taking on the even more ambitious goal of formal verification through design by contract.

I don't have the screenshot around, but old/tech/fags predicted this. The gist is all closed-source data miners (eg FAGMAN) collect massive amount of data to aggregated into psychological classifications. Understanding implies control. They can simplify however they want to meet computation limits to create models where they can ask if I show X to this group of people, what is their reaction or how does their profile changes. The more information given, the more accurate the model is and the more controlled a person is. Without going into dead internet theory level of autism, they can still target the majority of some forums or psychological groups to deliver the punch they wanted.

Encryption using something like shared PGP keys could solve the issue but it would require a web of trust model to be applied on the application layer. However it would make posting on a public website like this one effectively useless unless someone else had your PGP keys. This limits the extent of who can see your posts and if the site is public 

Which accomplishes the same goal that GloboHomo :tm: wants to do with internet censorship. The solution is the inevitable creation of distributed and independent nodes of infrastructure on the network level to support a fully open Network.

This is all hypothetical but given the current way things are going I don't see it as too far fetched.

The hype over Stable Diffusion and GPT-3 is a bit ridiculous when it comes to replacing artists / programmers. The real threat is both government and corporate actors using it to develop a fully autonomous and evolving firewall that censors all wrongthink.
And with GPT-3 it's easier than ever to create those types of models. In regards to the "dead internet" theory look at sites like cuckchan, Plebbit, or Twitter and about 40-60% of all posts are generated by neural networks.

The point of Rust is to be a high performance functional programming language without a garbage collector.

The point of Ada is to be a low level systems programming language focused on safety and security.

The Rust community likes to larp at the safety and security stuff but that is mostly a side effect not an actual priority in the design and development of the language.

The problem with Ada is that it's not cool. It doesn't have closures and metaprogramming and ad hoc polymorphism. Ada is for writing navigation systems for nuclear missiles, not dicking around with useless abstractions to pretend you're clever.

It may endanger unmaintained SDL2 projects, though there was an SDL1->2 compatibility layer created eventually so hopefully the same will happen for SDL2->3.
The suggestion is Wayland & Pipewire will be the defaults, but not required (this is often the case in programs with Pulse support, many of which can also use ALSA). On a side note Pipewire has the potential to be an objective improvement in every way over the previous Linux audio stacks, unifying ALSA, Pulse & JACK support under one umbrella.

This is fine until Firefox stopped supporting alsa. Audio is best when there are less layers. Quality can only get worse from the source. alsa handles everything except switching audio device during use.

On my end it's objectively superior to PoetteringAudio as that would sometimes make these really annoying Tinnitus noises when closing an application while audio was still playing, PW doesn't do that and I've yet to run into an application with a PA dependency that has any trouble routing its audio through PW instead.

Are you the fbdev faggot? If yes, SDL2 supports DirectFB so maybe try that. Dunno if it's enabled by default though... I've used both SDL versions and 2.x is a massive improvement over 1.x.

>though there was an SDL1->2 compatibility layer
The SDL1 API is quite small[1] I could write a wrapper for it in a day, the SDL2 API on the other hand is much larger[2] so a wrapper may be difficult to come by.
That being said SDL2 is extremely popular, I reckon it will still be in use a decade or two from now. Deprecating it in favor of SDL3 might take a long time.

>alsa handles everything except switching audio device during use.
That's an important feature, palindrome-anon. While I personally prefer ALSA for development reasons, I find it unusable on a modern desktop without PA. Thankfully alsa-plugins-pulseaudio exists so ALSA-only applications work great under PA.

I have been wondering about the same thing. gcc-go is perfectly usable but it's not still the same as Google's Go toolchain (but I can't remember what it's lacking (?), other than the fact that gcc-go uses older version of the language, Go: golang-1.19.5, GCC11: golang-1.16.3). 

Go is a weird/a bit disappointing language. When I was looking at it last year (after generics got added), Go initially looked really good but then there are some corner cases (etc.) that aren't taken into account.
Basically Go has 80% solutions for everything. It comes close to being good, but then it fails imo.

Mostly, yes.
But the JVM has GraalVM now (and it's production ready). Without GraalVM, Java/JVM is still really slow to start. Try Clojure+leiningen ( lein repl ) or Emacs: cider-jack-in. It loads slowly and executing the first expression takes more time than any subsequent expressions. I think modern web browsers do some kind of JIT caching but I'm not sure. I heard that they need to verify the JIT cache before they can use it (and based on this comment, I figured that browsers probably do it now or that it's in the works).  LuaJIT is very fast (even the start up).

I tend to agree. Global warming is often used as an excuse to market new stuff (producing new products creates new emissions vs. using products that have been already made). Example: electric cars that do not even work well in cold climate (I heard from a friend that one of their friends couldn't even get their new car's doors open because the batteries didn't have charge!) or in rural areas where the distances are long and it's (probably) not feasible to build network of recharging stations. Also, the batteries wear out faster, and producing more batteries creates a lot of waste. The replacement batteries often cost too much also.

Are the only permanently viable options and already the cheapest. But arguing over carbon emissions is somewhat irrelevant to global warming, because we already spewed too much carbon into the atmosphere years ago to avoid catastrophic warming by 2100 even if everyone was raptured from earth today instantly dropping emissions to zero. Literally the only thing that can stop AGW is geoengineering, all emissions reduction provide is a cheaper alternative to SOME OF the DACCS or whatever we'll end up doing, which would in turn be cheaper than the externalities of unmitigated AGW.

From there the YEC fad spread among Baptist loonies across the US, the rest of the Anglosphere, and then infected fundies among Anglicans, Lutherans, Catholics,  Eastern Orthodox, and even other religions like Muslims, Jews, Hindus, etc. by the 1950s in a chain of direct brainworm infestation. YEC has always been and remains to this day heretical in the eyes of every non-meme-tier church's dogma.

This problem was solved a long time ago with options like battery prewarmers and more efficient cabin AC. Some people just don't choose properly winterized cars, and the same problems affect gas burners.
EV range already exceeds typical gas vehicles of the same curb weight
Setting aside the convenience of the grid if you have it, EVs are so much more efficient that using a decent gas generator to charge one will yield more mileage than the same gasoline burned in a comparable car.

The rest of that's just walled-garden nu-engineering in general, not anything specific to modern electric cars.

For instance, devices down to cameras and laptop PCs that used to have removable proprietary LiPo/Li-ion battery packs now have them sealed inside.

And those proprietary Li-ion battery packs were already a step down from earlier chemistries like NiMH & NiCd, which allowed user handling of generic bare batteries. The pretense usually offered was that Li-ion needs special microcontrollers to keep the underlying commodity AA Li-ion batteries (which are still inside modern packs, picrel) from exploding, but there's no technical reason such microcontrollers couldn't be smart enough to handle user-swapped raw batteries.

And then those batteries were in turn a step down from even earlier chemistries like lead-acid, which in "unsealed" batteries allowed users to replace electrolyte and anode plates. Indeed, that is the basis of the latest EV "flow batteries", a type of fuel cell that can either be recharged slowly using mains electricity or rapidly using fresh electrolyte, with variants available using a variety of chemistries ranging from the cheap hydrogen-oxygen to the efficient Li-ion.

Hopefully the nu-engineering problem will be fought by right-to-repair legislation, especially since corporations are doubling down with bullshit like cryptographically signed car parts and SUBCOMPONENTS down to cable harnesses that disable themselves if they detect aftermarket parts.

Oh, also:
<The distinction between non-fossil-based (bio)plastic and fossil-based plastic is of limited relevance since materials such as petroleum are themselves merely fossilized biomass. As such, whether any kind of plastic is degradable or non-degradable (durable) depends on its molecular structure, not on whether or not the biomass constituting the raw material is fossilized.
In other words, the reason rats eat the cables isn't because they're made of soy, we could make molecularly identical cables out of sweet raw crude instead, or visa versa we could make indigestible  eternal plastic out of soy to avoid wasting precious hydrocarbon deposits.

So of course, the actual reason we want to make biodegradable electrical insulation is so we don't fill ourselves with microplastics after the cables are scrapped.

There's no other choice, aside from putting more (also eventually biodegradable) preservatives and pesticides in our plastic to (SOMEWHAT) postpone their expiration date, similarly to other biomaterials like lumber or leather.
>Are the only permanently viable options and already the cheapest. 
Solar panels and wind turbines are so expensive to manufacture and run and are so short lived they barely break even at the end of their lifetimes. You need fossil fuels to mine the materials for solar panels, and lubricate the moving parts of wind turbines. You need fossil fuel power plants as backups for when there is no wind or sun. This "green energy" stuff is just a money laundering scheme to pipe tax money into the hands of billionaires and increase oil and gas profits at the same time.

The reason nuclear is so expensive is because your oil lobby uses the government to cripple them with safety regulations. There is nothing wrong with the technology itself. The fact that XR and other "environmentalist" are so irrationally opposed to nuclear should be a clue as to who's funding them and their real goals.

Ideally. In reality you're just condensing all the complexity and expense into a single, consumable and unsustainable, component. There's nowhere near enough lithium to supply all current car owners with EV battery packs. And you need a continuous supply of them.

I'm occasionally tempted by the democratization of EV technology and the prospect of an accompanying open source firmware project. As you say, building cars as if they were PCs. That would be awesome. 

But then the reality of resource scarcity slaps us in the face. Not just the batteries but the switch to "green energy" is causing havoc with the energy demands we currently have. Dumping millions of EVs onto the same electrical grid is never going to work.

The following report shows (in the 1st graph on page 5) both solar & wind stomping coal & nuclear for half the price, plus tying with gas. Note those prices INCLUDE grid storage (batteries, hydrogen, CAES, etc.) to fully offset intermittency.
For these reasons, every penny spent on new fossil/nuclear generation instead of sustainables is a pointless waste constraining future energy supply.
>The reason nuclear is so expensive
Is because it's an inherently flawed technology that survives entirely on taxpayer bailouts UNPRECEDENTED by any other energy subsidy:
Along with nuclear accounting for nearly all the money spent on ratepayer bailouts of failed investments from private electric utilities:

Environmentalism boils down to one of two mutually exclusive stances on sustainable permaculure: Green growth (ecopositivism), versus green degrowth (ecoausterity).

I'm of course for green growth, eliminating waste by focusing on infrastructure details imperceptible to individual quality of life, while maintaining or increasing QoL for individuals whose private affairs are unmolested. Also as I noted upthread, even ignoring environmentalist and cost benefits, sustainable energy liberates us from perpetual external dependencies.

Oil companies and other fossil fuels as well as nuclear serve the purpose of enforcing perpetual dependence on centralized resources, while braindead green degrowth rhetoric serves the purpose of bullying individuals about their environmentally inconsequential private habits without actually touching infrastructure that would make real environmental impact. In this way the two evils dovetail.

>In reality you're just condensing all the complexity and expense into a single [...] component
IMHO that's the ideal way. Think of the difference between, for instance, a typical consumer PC component like a GPU or PSU (bunch of fiddly cables edge connectors and screws that take minutes, have to open the case, static/dust sensitive, coldswap), versus an enterprise server component (insert/eject externally in seconds, sealed component casing, hotswap). In spite of that difference for routine tasks, individual server components are still designed to be cracked open and repaired when necessary, so it's the best of both worlds.
>There's nowhere near enough lithium to supply all current car owners with EV battery packs
False, same goes for similar canards like peak neodymium for motors/windmills or peak platinum for hydrogen:
I'll also reiterate what I said upthread about flow batteries/unitized fuel cells, which greatly reduce the amount of lithium (or other electrolyte/catalyst) needed to achieve arbitrary energy capacity (i.e.: kWh) at a given maximum power (i.e.: kW).
>And you need a continuous supply of them

Combustion engines are extremely old and relatively simple concepts. A home made internal combustion engine won't be nearly as efficient, strong, or reliable as a precision made one, but it will run.
Electric cars, on the other hand, struggle to even get close to fuel based cars even when using the latest most intricately made batteries that exist commercially. Anyone can make a battery, but if you think you'll be able to run a usable car purely on magnets and wire you're seriously retarded. 
At this point in time electric cars are way more restrictive than any consumer fuel car. Farm vehicles are way worse but there still aren't any comparable electric vehicles.
Fuel cars are mostly mechanic and are going to stay mechanic as long as it makes economic sense, whereas in electric cars it's already cheaper to make everything electric which is inherently harder for consumers to work around. Any machinist can make a part that fits another, very few programmers can break DRM.

Electric motors and batteries were invented first, same for electric cars, both are far simpler, and are far more common as tinkerer projects. In fact, ICE drivetrains necessarily incorporate at least one entire electric drivetrain, with an electric motor (the starter, arguably also the alternator) and battery (duh), as major components!
>Electric cars, on the other hand, struggle to even get close to fuel based cars
As I've already pointed out, electrics are far more efficient, to the point running a gasoline generator to charge a BEV is cheaper than an equivalent gasoline car. If by "performance" you mean the "vroom vroom" kind, then electric motors generally have far better acceleration, better torque, and weaker top speed.

Because electric cars are inherently simpler systems than fuel cars, requiring simpler tools, simpler knowledge, and whose subcomponents/materials are more generic commodities shared with many more applications than cars across far more industrial sectors.

Tesla will ban you from fast charging for any third party repair at all (even purely cosmetic), and frequently disables fast charging on second hand cars. That makes charging go form 3-4 hours to over a day.

As noted in the article I linked a couple posts up, the only reason e.g. Tesla battery packs are so hard to fix is because they're filled with glue, moreover glue obviously chosen to be needlessly difficult to dissolve. Not exactly high-tech. Absent such blatant malfeasance, it would be no harder to fix than a laptop battery using the exact same commodity cells that cost pennies, FAR easier and cheaper than any fuel drivetrain could possibly be.

Everything you're complaining about are problems that have nothing to do with the underlying technologies, everything to do with corporate audacity, and as a result are likewise a burgeoning cancer on new fuel cars.

Ha ha. Seriously though, Li-ion batteries (and, on a related topic, hydrogen, for the same reasons as CNG) are far safer than gasoline in cars:
Some of Li-ion's bad reputation in EVs comes not from comparison with fuel vehicles, but from non-automotive applications compared against other battery chemistries (NiCd, NiMH, etc.), which it actually is more fire-prone in comparison to.
>it would be no harder to fix than a laptop battery using the exact same commodity cells that cost pennies

>far safer
There's also a big difference in how the fires start. The only way an ICE can can go up is if oil or fuel leaks onto a very hot component like the exhaust manifold. The problem with EVs is that they can short themselves out while cold and at rest which is a whole different thing. EVs are basically constantly at risk of catching fire just by existing.

>far safer
The last point here is that ICE vehicles firewall the passenger compartment from the engine so  any fires are contained and you've got plenty of time to get out. EVs spread the heavy batteries all over the underside of the car to even out the weight distribution. So when an EV catches fire the whole thing catches fire at the same time making you super fucked if you're inside.

Except >>9602 completely destroyed this statement. It's not true just because you want it to be true. And it's definitely not true just because multinational corporations riding the ESG money train tell you it's true.

What's your argument? Linking to random articles you obviously didn't read is just a diversion tactic.

>That's obviously a lot less than $22k
They didn't fix it though, they just replaced 1/8th of the battery modules with brand new ones. Replacing all the modules would have cost the same as a new battery ($1500*16).
That's not what you said in >>9599 and >>9439
<Because electric cars are inherently simpler systems than fuel cars, requiring simpler tools, simpler knowledge, and whose subcomponents/materials are more generic 

>and similar to a lot of mechanical jobs (e.g.: getting a transmission or catalytic replaced).
When you rebuild a transmission almost all of the cost is the labor of delicately taking it apart and putting it back together again, the actual parts are cheap. Again, all your guys did was buy a new battery module from a factory and glue it onto the old ones. The only reason it was cheaper than tesla's fix price was because they bought a smaller number of modules.

And it's not false because you saw ooh a scary photo, but it is PROBABLY TRUE because what data we have leans toward batteries being safer than gasoline.
>Linking to random articles you obviously didn't read
Yeah, articles about how fuel cars spontaneously explode all the time in the exact way scaremongers were propagandized only EVs do. Totally random.
>Replacing all the modules would have cost the same as a new battery
No duh. But if the pack only has failures the cells of a few modules, that's a lot cheaper. And like I've said repeatedly, if modules weren't filled with gratuitously insoluble glue or an easy way of removing it was discovered, single cells could be replaced for far cheaper.
>When you rebuild a transmission

The article says exactly what >>9602 said. A fire only starts when oil or fuel leaks and touches a very hot component. The picture also confirms the point about ICE vehicles containing fire within the engine bay vs. every EV fire you see being an out of control inferno.

>No duh
In >>9599 and >>9439 you were clearly saying that it's possible to repair the battery cells, not just buy a whole new module. Are you admitting now that was wrong?

>modules weren't filled with gratuitously insoluble glue or an easy way of removing it was discovered, single cells could be replaced for far cheaper
Dude only one cell was broken in each module. If they'd rather spend $5000 replacing the whole modules instead of fixing the two broken cells then clearly you're wrong about fixing single cells being an option.

>you were clearly saying that it's possible to repair the battery cells
No. I was saying IN PRINCIPLE it is far easier to repair a properly designed battery pack or electric motor compared to similarly major components in even an ideally designed ICE drivetrain. Also, that the problem with CURRENT stock factory production EV batteries isn't high-tech issues that other posters upthread were worried about such as proprietary single-source subcomponents or electronic DRM, but instead very low-tech hostile design features such as glue.

Which is why I never claimed that about current Tesla batteries, and instead REPEATEDLY emphasized the glue as an example of very silly hostile design.

I don't know how I can explain this so you can understand. All your "data" and "trends" come from people with a big financial incentive to promote EVs. The link you posted had no statistical rigor. If your study has 1,000,000 ICEs and 100 EVs, of course there will be more ICE fires. It's utterly meaningless.

>Such as meaningless random photos of EVs on fire?
Those pictures don't look like they came from the corporate media to me. The media narrative is "EVs good ICE bad" just like you incidentally. I didn't post them but I did point out that whatever you want to say about the probability of a fire starting, the speed the fire spreads and the probability of surviving is also relevant to safety.

>the chance of that ground terminal melting and starting a fire
I've had corroded wiring short out. You've got maximum 12V going through that shit. It smoulders and melts a bit, it doesn't explode into flames.

>faulty rod bearings
The cause is still fuel/oil igniting outside the cylinder.

>the problem with CURRENT stock factory production EV batteries isn't high-tech issues that other posters upthread were worried about such as proprietary single-source subcomponents or electronic DRM
You can't have it both ways. If it's magic battery technology that will let you go 1000 miles between charges then you can't fix it with cheap generic parts.

>but instead very low-tech hostile design features such as glue
If the glue has no functional purpose then there must be a cheapo manufacturer who skips the glue to save cost. Why can't you show me one?

One of the founding myths of Reddit is the great migration from Digg in 2010. The problem with equating that to Reddit today, which many seem to have forgotten, is Reddit itself was only a year younger than Digg, and as such had been around for years as a relatively mature site with a large enough userbase to stress test its architecture.

The situation is completely different with all of the various aspiring Reddit alternatives, which whether centralized like Voat, or decentralized like Lemmy, or somewhere inbetween like the various sub-specific offsites (Patriots, Hexbear, etc.), which are ridiculously amateurish and flimsy on both an organizational and technological level.

The hardcoded filters are actually part of a unit test.

The comparison is rather facile, for reasons the author outlines at length. But I think a better complaint is that is that whereas hardware was too slow to be responsive at desirable tasks back then, that hasn't been true since sometime in the late '90s, and there is no excuse for the UI of software to ever "feel" slow on any modern computer.

After all, running NT on an actually typical period machine was so slow you could see windows repaint a line at a time. But once faster PCs started getting cheap, the speed that could be reached with those same older OSs was absolutely blistering.

In particular, I LOL'd at this from the comments:
<Great Post, reminds me of 1998 when we all took a look at BeOS (now HaikuOS) for the first time running on Mac hardware and playing 5 videos at the same time, even when moving the window! The Mac could only play one and moving the window only moved an outline, not the actual window.
As svelte as Windows 3.11, System 7, or Gnome 1 look in retrospect on modern hardware, there was still an enormous amount of bloat and broken design that could've been sliced away with any kind of disciplined engineering back then.

The fact that never ended up happening, even when the remit for essentially new platforms like HTML5, iOS, & Android to be built from the ground up was issued, is really why things are so laggy.

See also: 

The issue isn't that any single little thing, like terminal emulators, or X, are too big and slow. The issue is that once you get to the point of a complete system capable of doing useful work, the combined bloat of those and every other subcomponent, exacerbated by the overall kludgy way in which those are integrated with each other, produces a system that is only barely fast enough to function.

>even run Xorg
Without HW acceleration on most SoCs, much like the lack of BT/802.11/USB/etc. drivers on many of them. It's crippled, but at least it can selfhost & compile.
>The problem is rustniggers have made a bloated shit on purpose
Rust can be configured to for development and compilation within the same limitations as C, the actual problem is all the defaults are insanely bloated (well, that and habitual reliance on its own package manager with de-facto one single repo, but that's a cultural braincancer many languages such as JS, Python, and Go have now). The same is true of much modern tooling, for instance the Boost frameworks in C++ land.

Rust has no ABI. You can't just build a library and then link it to your application. They have to (re)compile all dependencies with the target or the linker won't have a clue how to resolve any of the symbols. That's why the cancer known as cargo is so central to rust's build process.

I don't know rust that well it sounds like you don't really know either language. Last time I asked why I have to put up with cargo autism the answer was because you can't even trust the exact same rust compiler to output code that is binary compatible with a build you did 30 seconds ago.

Swift achieved something similar in recent versions with its generics, though there are performance penalties when dynamically linked. A faster solution that's about as powerful is Ada's separately compiled packages. 
>do work across shared objects without recompiling
Invariably via nonstandard interfaces outside the ABI, rather than e.g. something such as the abomination that is Itanium.
>because you can't even trust the exact same rust compiler to output code that is binary compatible with a build you did 30 seconds ago
Even ignoring the obvious hyperbole, if that were remotely true it couldn't even complete a single compile of a large project. Rust has an ABI, but it is not stable across versions, and has no versioning mechanism. Much like C++, Rust can dynamically link using the C ABI, but with a restricted featureset.

A filesystem without journaling or "soft dependencies" must operate synchronously to avoid corruption, this is slow. Journaling allows the filesystem to function asynchronously which improves performance, and it also prevents having to check the entire filesystem on power loss (you only have to check the journal). However, journaling wastes disk space and has huge performance overhead, between 10-30% depending on various factors.

Soft dependencies, on the other hand, is (was) the idea that by carefully ordering metadata writes to the disk, one can keep the filesystem consistent at all times without needing synchronous operation, speeding up the filesystem massively without journaling's overhead, but still requiring a full filesystem check on power loss.

The problem with softdep is that it's extremely complicated, and many OSes tried it at some point and eventually all gave up. OpenBSD was the last one to give up. Also, keep in mind that even with softdep, OpenBSD's disk access is still much slower than e.g. Linux, it's a slow OS in general.

They usually try to do things the right way, softdep seemed the right way.

Also, for some numbers, Linux with the BFQ disk scheduler can get around 300MiB/s sequential read speed off my hard disk. Linux has multiple disk schedulers, often there is one that is the best for a specific kind of device (not that Linux distros have sane defaults for this). Linux can take advantage of a drive's geometry for performance. 

OpenBSD, on the other hand, has a very simple disk scheduler, and only a single one that is used for all storage types, and to top it off, the kernel only supports 512 byte block sizes, which is inefficient when you have a disk with e.g. 4KiB blocks or other block sizes. It can only get around ~95MiB/s sequential off my disk, and it can't handle random writes nearly as well as Linux can.

Additionally, even if you install a SSD which is where a very basic disk scheduler is the right way (and Linux has deadline, noop, kyber, and more for this), OpenBSD doesn't support TRIM, so after enough use, every write operation to a SSD is preceded by a delete operation which decreases performance and is what TRIM addresses.

Would actually be a major improvement, if implemented properly. A trusted, revocable chain of attestation to verify that someone is human, is part of a certain group, is using certain software unaltered, etc.

In fact
Was based around an implicit primitive analog of this, with servers choosing to honor or ignore certain headers from other servers, based on servers propagated to earlier, etc., paralleled by the way users built and shared killfiles, and PGP signatures many used with eMail too.

The same could be said for "all websites that require no or minimal CSS+JS will still work in old browsers". As long as you must participate in civilization, you must either tolerate something compatible with their shitware, or persuade others to do things your way.

PGP & SSL, for a couple examples, were about the same level of sophistication as modern crypto. There is nothing about, e.g., PoS blockchain, that couldn't be implemented on '80s microcontrollers.

Also, the ABSOLUTE STATE of modern cyberspace is the direct result of featureset deficiencies in those old standards, leaving a vacuum readily filled opaque internal protocols executed atop a stack of misused JS.

>le openbsd security meme
<Let's deal with a concrete example: "strlcpy". This API originating from OpenBSD would be on most people's list of a "safe" strcpy API. It doesn't write more than the destination length provided and nul-terminates the result. There's another API that some might call "safe" as well: strncpy. It has the same behavior as strlcpy when it comes to not copying more than the destination length, but if the source string is longer than the destination buffer, it doesn't nul-terminate. So it's more "unsafe" than strlcpy in that regard. But it has an important additional feature: it zero-pads to the provided length of the destination buffer. In some instances, this isn't needed, but in attack surface working with structured data containing fixed-length strings (the Linux kernel is one large example), it's actually very important. Failure to zero-pad buffers that are copied to userland is a recipe for an information leak. There's another problem with strlcpy in that it effectively performs an strlen() on the source string, regardless of whether it's attacker provided and 500MB large. So it would be unheard of for someone to just make a blanket replacement of uses of strncpy in some codebase and switch them all to strlcpy, right?
<We've provided this example elsewhere before, but it bears repeating here. The exact scenario played out in multiple stages starting in 2013...
Replies: >>11082
Oh shit, strlcpy() is going to be POSIX, finally.

Yes, if you have fixed-width fields and you're setting up ROM or sending data from kernelspace to userspace, go ahead and use strncpy(), that is the appropriate API.

If you're going to kludge strncpy() to do something it's not supposed to do or call strlen() on the source to know if you can strcpy() it, use strlcpy() instead.

Some people are just braindead retards and these words will fly over their heads and they will see strlcpy() as a sort of magic dust that fixes everything, that's pretty much what grsecurity is arguing, but such people shouldn't be programming in the first place, and that's not strlcpy()'s fault.

I'm seriously considering switching to a different architecture.

As soon as RISC-V stops being vaporware.
ARM has some of those vulns too. Definitely less than x64 though.

I have a hunch hardware development is much less sophisticated than software because trying out things in software takes seconds, while in hardware it takes months. Additionally, the open culture of software provides good examples to learn from, while there is only a nascent equivalent in hardware: I can go learn how the best software by almost any metric and for almost any class of program works and understand it as well as code I wrote myself from reading the source code and books the authors wrote, but nobody can learn how to make a processor as performant as x64 or as power efficient as ARM. 

All of this should mean that incompetence in the hardware sector is way more prevalent than it is in software (and we all know how bad we have it in software) and that even the competent hardware engineers just don't have techniques and tools as sophisticated as software engineers, even though hardware and software are the exact same thing.
Also, most likely, the only reason those vulns aren't found on e.g. Alpha, PA-RISC, etc, is lack of eyes.
For instance, speculative execution vulnerabilities only started showing up about a decade after Alpha was abandoned, and Alpha processors had speculative execution. Did anyone bother to check?

How far back are you talking? CP/M was already in common use in the 70's, they even had an entire architecture built around it (S100 bus) that made systems fairly compatible and expandable.
But that was a little before my time. I got my first computer in the 80's, and since it had a Z80 it also came with CP/M. Printing over parallel port to a dot matrix just werked, no special drivers were needed. My parents even had an electric typewriter connected to their computer (an older Z80 with CP/M) over the parallel port, and this let them print documents from WordStar with much nicer output than with the 9-pin dot matrix.
If I turne my computer without a CP/M boot disk in the drive, it would simply boot to the BASIC and minimal OS that was in ROM. That too would print without issues to any parallel port printer. Most 8-bit BASIC dialects even have a variant of LIST and PRINT that sends output to the printer instead of the screen.
It wasn't magic, just a simple and sensible design. Nowadays the computers are monstrosities and the OS and software that runs on them are even worse. Also I don't even own a printer now, because they're poorly built (actually designed to fail, so you go buy another), and the ink cartriges are a big scam.

I was mostly thinking of cheaper systems like Atari or Apple, where software usually took over the entire computer, and even running something from a DOS or ROM BASIC would cause a reboot. But even something upmarket like a CP/M system didn't really provide much more than storage and memory abstractions to ease portability, with anything resembling the TSRs or accessory drivers that characterized the simplest single-tasking proper OSs like MS-DOS largely still confined to software.
>Printing over parallel port to a dot matrix just werked, no special drivers were needed.
If you had the exact right printer, matching the firmware's hardcoded control sequences for something very basic like linemode output. Otherwise you had to reinstall your entire word processor, maybe even your OS as well, to configure it to a different printer, even keeping multiple installs if you wanted to use different printers. And if your printer wasn't supported, you had to patch your word processor. For this reason, word processors like WordStar came to include drivers for hundreds of printers by the mid-'80s.

Configuring a different terminal or printer under CP/M was easy. All you needed was the documentation for your hardware, and they all came with nice hardcopy manuals back then.
This is not like a "driver" in the modern sense of the word, where you have to actually program a kernel module and then rebuild your OS. No, you just configured some very simple settings. Even better, if you had a common hardware, then you didn't even have to do that.
Here is LADCONF.COM, from the CP/M game Ladder. If you have some obscure terminal, you just choose the last option and then it asks you for the ASCII codes that your terminal uses. Then you can save these settings so the game uses them next time, and you don't have to configure it again (unless you get a different terminal).

>What's happening: Roughly five days into the incident, slot machines are still out of order, digital room keys are offline and resort guests are slamming the company on social media for its seeming lack of customer support.
>MGM, which operates several high-profile casinos across the country, is also expected to take a financial hit: The company is facing potential revenue losses, litigation and reputational risks, credit rating firm Moody's warned (paywall).
>Meanwhile, MGM has been hush on the details in its public communications throughout the week. The company has yet to confirm what kind of attack it's facing or what customer data, if any, was stolen.
>MGM did not respond to requests for comment.
>Why it matters: The fallout from the apparent cyberattack on MGM provides a rare glimpse into how damaging these incidents can be to businesses and consumers.
>Typically, either the impact of a hack is limited to stolen personal data or the victim organization sweeps the full scope of an attack under the rug.
>The big picture: Casinos and hospitality firms have become a target for cyberattacks in recent years.
>Caesars Entertainment, which operates several major casinos in Las Vegas, confirmed on Thursday that it also faced a cyberattack a few days before the MGM hack began.
>Details: The IT outages are impacting MGM properties across the country — not just in Las Vegas.
>I visited MGM National Harbor outside of Washington, D.C. on Thursday afternoon and found a handful of slot machines on the second floor were still offline, as well as a few ATMs in the casino.
>All of the MGM Rewards kiosks — where members can print rewards cards so they can use their points to play games — were also down, forcing people to cash out their winnings in-person.
>Of note: Throughout the week, confused and frustrated customers have flooded MGM's social media feeds with online reviews and comments trying to figure out if they can get a refund or if computer systems will be up in time for their weekend trips.
>"Terrible customer service for a large customer like myself and my team," one person wrote in a Google review for the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas. "We will be taking our business elsewhere after the cybersecurity attacks."
>Yes, but: The website for BetMGM, the company's online betting site, appears to have been unaffected and remains functional.
>The intrigue: A member of the hacking group Scattered Spider has claimed responsibility for the MGM hack, the Financial Times reports.
>The hackers — who are believed to be young adults possibly based in the U.S. and U.K. — initially were trying to target the slot machines and recruit people to "milk the machines," a member told the FT.
>Bloomberg reported Wednesday that the same group targeted Caesars last week.
>Zoom in: A former MGM employee who left the company this year told Axios that the company restructured roughly 75% of its corporate IT teams in April, resulting in layoffs, and outsourced another IT team in July.
>Caesars said in an SEC filing that its cyberattack started with a social engineering attack targeting an outside IT vendor.
>Between the lines: Public statements about a cybersecurity incident run up against legal obligations and regulatory scrutiny — making it difficult to communicate what's happening with the public.
>Once a company uses the word "data breach" or "data leakage," the clock starts ticking for the organization to comply with state-level data breach notification rules and other compliance, Alex Waintraub, a cyber crisis management expert at CYGNVS, told Axios.
>It takes days, sometimes weeks, to determine the impact of a cyber intrusion, including what data was stolen or accessed.
>"This is going to become a legal battle," Waintraub said. "We do not say [data breach] in writing until forensics confirm that there is data leakage."
I believe they paid about $15 million to get un-ransomwared. Seems like a very low fee for a casino.

Not really. 64-bit arches still supported include x86, ARM, PPC, & RISC-V.
>low end hardware
That's actually valid, though aside from maybe x86 & ARM, the number of working 32-bit machines out there running modern OS updates is probably in the low pentuple digits.

>Not really. 64-bit arches still supported include x86, ARM, PPC, & RISC-V.
That's basically nothing for an OS. OSes benefit from portability even more than other kinds of programs. It makes sure components of the boot process stay properly decoupled because they will have to deal with all the differences between the firmwares of those machines. Different machines also have wildly different MMUs, caches, and memory models. There's more. Portability lets you find bugs that you wouldn't find otherwise, including bugs in different machines.

Even if people are going to grab a amd64 machine and install an i386 OS on it, it's still worth it.

Btw, NetBSD supports lots of arches, but doesn't work very well on most of them. For instance, OpenBSD requires that every platform it runs on be self hosting, and NetBSD doesn't. For every OpenBSD port, there's one machine that port supports capable of compiling the OS and all the packages, however long it takes. Meanwhile, right this moment, I'm trying to contribute to NetBSD, but the old computer I'm running it on doesn't have enough memory to compile the toolchain NetBSD's source code uses. That made me realize that you have no choice but to cross compile for most architectures NetBSD runs on, most of them are physically incapable of installing enough memory to compile NetBSD. OpenBSD is also the OS that actually makes an effort to bring all its features to as many arches as possible. Linux doesn't even have proper address space randomization on most architectures it supports, OpenBSD has it on every single one.

It's reasonably diverse, about the only thing missing is maybe some kind of still-relevant embedded arch like PIC or AVR, but I'm unsure as to whether eunuchs is too phat to boot them.
>OSes benefit from portability even more than other kinds of programs
Absolutely, one of my favorite examples was this being the reason Windows NT was originally written for a platform ("Jazz" MIPS) M$ created from scratch specifically to port from, to avoid bugs that would inevitably result from writing on the primary target platform of x86. This is also why, especially after the W³C halted reference testbed projects like Arena & Amaya, the death of Gecko would be absolutely catastrophic for the web as a coherently standardized platform, regardless of the fact Firefox's user share is microscopic compared to Webkit/Blink.
Image parsing vulnerabilities found in popular UEFI implementations, bypasses platform security features

What do anons make of this? My understanding is that there's 2 attack vectors, first being the EFI System Partition on a storage device, the other being firmware updates with unsigned boot logos. The latter would result in a long-term hardware compromise that can't be fixed by wiping the system drive.

Finally a way to attack ME and PSP.
>I don't understand any scenario where you wouldn't already be pwned just as bad for that
Usually that isn't possible because firmware updates are signed by the vendor, however in many cases the boot image isn't because it's slightly more convenient for the hardware companies or something. The issue here is that vendors have provided software tools for updating the firmware for years (you've probably seen these in the form of DOS or Windows applications), an attacker who exploits a vulnerability in your OS and gets root could then flash a malicious image straight to your motherboard which you effectively wouldn't have any way of detecting.
>Finally a way to attack ME and PSP.
This is more about things like secure boot than remote management features, although this level of hardware control could make it possible to soft disable those early in the boot process with a custom payload.
Replies: >>12403
Rereading about it, the idea seems to be that the firmware payload is signed with a crypto hash, but the logo picture is (on most but not all secure boot implementations) a separate file that isn't, so that's supposed to be the privilege escalation. Thonking as hard as I can, I still don't understand how that's a privilege escalation, since if your malicious logo picture targeted a given firmware specifically enough to do anything, you would also have enough target-specific knowledge to exploit everything else we've known about secure boot for over a decade now:

The problem with ME/PSP isn't that they can't be deleted (we've known how to do that for a long time in many implementations), but that they're a pile of undocumented spaghetti assembler the rest of the mobo relies on to function. Simply deleting it would disable most mobos, so what's needed is to understand how they work, and replace them with an open source equivalent stripped of everything except those vital features.

Sadly, this requires decompiling and reverse engineering pretty much the entire firmware with every new hardware rev, which is why e.g.: me_cleaner takes so long to make progress with new CPU/mobo chipsets.
Replies: >>12404
>I still don't understand how that's a privilege escalation
The escalation is going from kernel control to system bootup control, even without flashing firmware the malicious image could meddle with otherwise uncompromised systems booting from something like a USB stick for instance. If the file was written to the ESP you would have to disconnect the infected drive to make sure it can't execute, if it's in firmware then you would probably need to hook up a programmer and reflash the chip.
>if your malicious logo picture targeted a given firmware specifically enough to do anything
It might not need to be written for an exact mainboard firmware, since the UEFI implementations on most machines come from just a few companies, more generic exploits that target a large group of boards may be possible.
Interesting, just goes to show how much we need open source firmware so that problems like this can be fixed even beyond the vendor support period.
I tried to use secure boot with my own keys on my system, but a CMOS reset wipes them.

This incident isn't weebs vs. furfags sperging about furshit vs. weebshit, it's normalfags finding porn of any kind in what's supposed to be a serious piece of software, and then finding unrelated personal website backups hosted on the same repo as the software's sourcecode. Basically "this is very unprofessional, get your shit together, kiddo".
>CosmicStrand and Lojax
They're real, but both were narrowly targeted at specific institutional victims, infections present in other random public peoples' PCs seem to be incidental. Also, both rely on compatible Windows installs to do their thing, instead of operating entirely in ring -2 or lower in an OS-agnostic way.
>israeli backdoors
On a personal level, unless your PC is connected to a big government/corporate institution's internal network, you're probably at greater risk from your own country's or its allies' regime.
>state of GNU linux in the middle east
I was under the general impression that even among normalfags, familiarity with basic tools such as VPNs & VMs was higher for residents of theocracies and other intrusive police states.

I myself would strongly recommend further opsec for anything that could get you into more trouble than vidya piracy or whatever (i.e.: verboten political discussion) segregating all activities that could draw legal or social suspicion in your jurisdiction to a portable live distro such as Tails on a hidden VeraCrypt partition.

That's not what it means. The vulnerability allows you to do something that ME/PSP usually stops you from doing. That's what they mean by "bypassing" platform security.

There's also the whole stack's inefficiency. At least one round trip for DNS (could be more with e.g. CNAME records or DoT), another for TCP, 2 more for TLS, at least one other for the HTTP request (could have redirects), and then the page itself links other domains elsewhere with parts of the page and it has to start all over, and the browser sends several HTTP requests to the same server because HTTP can't handle multiple files in parallel or batch small files (which means it spends significant amounts of time between finishing a small file download and requesting the next doing nothing), etc.

And that's forgetting that browsers are all several orders of magnitude slower and bigger than they have to be.
No, progressive decoding does play a significant part. Like it or not.
Especially on imageboard servers which are sometimes pretty slow.
Webp and AVIF can't decode progressively. If the image is 5 MB, you have to download it all and decode it all before you get to see anything.
