>Iran's internet has been cut off for over 3 days
Holy fuck. I'm literally behind 4 proxies all just to be able to shit post on 4chan
I don't even know how long until they close off this method and I'm off the grid again
What should I do? How do I prepare myself for a potentially month long blackout or even longer?
I already have Debian DVDs 1 through 3 downloaded from before
What else?

Any good messaging apps I can self host and use to communicate with my friends? We use mumble now but we can't send pics/videos so It's not ideal

I'd be more worried about personal protection iiwy.
Thought about using encrypted radio instead?
Irc over tor? Get a dirt cheap vps with crypto in a shithole country and just host a hidden service on it?
Just some thoughts

On the other hand, I'm not sure how bad things are there. Please be careful anon. Are you armed?

i was talking about nano
even if we restrict permitted characters to the lowercase alphabet, completely disallow all customization, and restrict file size to 3 bytes (or, in this world, 3 26-bit words), 26^3 = 17576, which is more than twice that many states

CollapseOS would fit in that 8KiB. Its kernel is only around 3KiB, you'd have more than half of your RAM free for user programs.
>>
>>73657325
>>73657371
Wait, shit, I was thinking about kilobits, not kilobytes. Still, 17576 is a lot if you only have 8*8192=65536 distinct states to work with.
>>73657414
>CollapseOS would fit in that 8KiB. Its kernel is only around 3KiB
But something that fits in 3KiB in reality would occupy 2^(3072*8)/8 bytes in this world where more sophisticated numbering systems than unary were never invented. CollapseOS would be an absolutely ridiculous size.

Sorry but it's impossible to fantasize about, it moves technology to pre-abacus times. Even analog tape is positional.

Ok
Nothing new here, honeypot from the start
Or it's just down for maintenance/migration and you're retarded
Either way, who but a pedo cares?

imagine a linux distro that could run any software from 5 years ago till 5 years in the future (10 years of software compatibility) with very little issues relating to instability. That would give it something called "longevity" which has always existed in Windows without the need for pajeet containers or static linking everything. GNU Guix is capable of upgrading or downgrading or using whatever packages you want once you build them without library breakages. One could run multiple/custom versions of gimp side by side for the reason of "muh freedom"


The only problem is GNU Guix requires big brained mother fuckers and brainlets are too busy using shit like Debian/Buntu, Fedora and Arch to make the switch. But one of these days a team of chads are gonna come along and make a simplified Guix for normies on /g/ and we can finally say goodbye to the Unix library cancer.

I like using Guix on Debian and I build packages for it because it works for every distro.
I prefer it to flatpak and snap because it doesn't force sandboxing.

Simpler, more general statement: you shouldn't buy a TV.
>>
>>73657108
I won't disagree with that. TVs are complete and utter dogshit and completely dead to me since you can't get dumb TVs anymore without spending thousands on "enterprise" models.

Mostly for "flash sales", but not for major sales since the item you are looking for will be on sale.
If you buy something from a flash sale, you are super lucky or you are a sheep.

There is rarely any actual deals.
I had fun when it was still actually something that happened AFTER thanksgiving.
Got up at like 3 and bought a $7 copy of burnout take down at walmart probably 15 years ago.
I'll probably go to HF at like 6AM this year only because I need to get a flux 125 and they haven't had it this low for like 6 months.

What happened to watch threads? /g/ used to have great ones.

Pic related is my new addition to the collection, finally stopped being stubborn and picked up a seiko 5. It's probably the best bang for buck automatic I've ever seen; in-house movement, beautiful case back, reliable as hell... After I fix my seamaster I'm picking up a 5 diver, seiko got me hooked hard

Why do people go for the f-91w instead of the newer variants?
>>
>>73654709
I don't have an F-91W but I do have a W-59, which is basically the same thing with bigger buttons and more water resistance. I chose it because I want a watch so small that I forget it's there. My MQ24 also fills that purpose but I like seeing the date on my watch. Are there any newer variants that are the same size as the F-91W/W-59?

Why do I see people saying this? The only occasion where this is true for me is after Xorg or Nvidia driver updates, if I want to watch videos with mpv right afterwards. Everything else works just fine.

I use Fedora on my desktop. On my server I have an installation of Ubuntu LTS that has survived upgrades from 12.10 to 14.04 to 16.04 to 18.04. Not really interested in swapping to something different on the server since it works perfectly, but if I did I'd probably go for CentOS 8. Since Fedora's release cycle is a little too quick for a server that I would like to set and forget about (just doing security updates).

A friend of mine doesn't stop saying the rust is the future. Is he right? Or just a retard?

Why does the best distro have the worst name?

Yeah, I know this distro came before all of the neckbeard/le fedora tip memes, but it wasn't even a good name before that. Why didn't they just call it fucking Silverblue to begin with.
