Nuclear waste lasts a long time, like super long. We're talking longer than all of recorded history by orders of magnitude. Right now, the only way we know how to deal with this waste is to bury it somewhere and put up a bunch of signs that say "there's a bunch of radioactive material here, so put away that shovel." The problem is, language changes over time. English from a mere 500 years ago is nearly indecipherable to anyone without a college degree. How do we tell people 10,000 years in the future to stay away, without dedicating the resources to constantly maintain these burial sites? What if we get sent back to the stone age by a meteor impact, massive pandemic, or nuclear holocaust? What then?
The Sandia Report gives 9 messages that need to be conveyed:
>This place is a message... and part of a system of messages... pay attention to it!
>Sending this message was important to us. We considered ourselves to be a powerful culture.
>This place is not a place of honor... no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here... nothing valued is here.
>What is here was dangerous and repulsive to us. This message is a warning about danger.
>The danger is in a particular location... it increases towards a center... the center of danger is here... of a particular size and shape, and below us.
>The danger is still present, in your time, as it was in ours.
>The danger is to the body, and it can kill.
>The form of the danger is an emanation of energy.
>The danger is unleashed only if you substantially disturb this place physically. This place is best shunned and left uninhabited.
Humans are notoriously curious, so it's rather difficult to keep them out of the metaphorical cookie jar. Especially when said cookie jar is filled with the curses of ancient gods. Written language is useless, as has been covered, and word of mouth is dodgy at best. So it's down to symbols to communicate the message of "bad, stay away." These range from fairly tame, like a grimacing human face, to badass, like so-called "hostile architecture" (pic related)
So, my question to you and the purpose of this thread is, what is YOUR solution to the problem of communicating danger to future Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


one thing for sure, i'd find a way to have videos and pictures of radiation victims to show "if you go over there, you'll look like this"


if we were somehow sent back to the stone age something like those spikes would be enough. all the primitive people would need to know is, seeing the mutants and having people who go there die is enough to deter them. the spikes are probably too much though, all there needs to be is a way to mark the location so they know the entire area is the same.

So discord is taking IRC place for a lot of communities including 22chan, what do you think about it? Have you made the jump yourself yet?
For me I find it annoying that people with no knowledge of /t/ are more and more using Discord, it became the norm to have a discord account. I think it can evolve to the point of including business meetings and the such and this made it almost a normie thing.

fuck you twoot, I bet you did that to fuck with me specifically


we have livechan, we dont need irc when we already have a live chat thingy. reguarding our discord if you need to critizies our server, you must join to check things out in order to express your opinion. what about discord itself? its spyware. but you dont need to download the app in order to use it, and its been proven its more secure if you use it that way. if you dont want to use discord, we have fucking livechan. no need to seperatw the userbase further


no, thats you failing at formatting.

I started learning JavaScript today so im wondering what programming languages anons are learning




html & xml


Python mainly
It's really good for scripts, but if you need your program to run real fast or something then use C++.
I also use C# when working on small unity projects

I use Void but I dislike how it lacks some stuff in repo and I'm too stupid to make my own templates.


Also Void Linux doesn't even have a forum, it only has a subreddit.

Have you ever heard of the distributed internet? The idea being that instead of having to rely on a server you share content with other users directly.
Torrents are the most famous example of this. However what if a distributed structure was used not only to share anime and cracked games but also to provide actual websites? Like another internet. What if there could be an internet without servers?
Here are some of the projects related to this I've seen around:
>Ipfs: https://ipfs.io/
Slightly improved torrents really. Removes duplicate files in the network. Has ipns, which allows to have a constant link to mutable content -> we can already have static web pages with this
>zeronet: https://zeronet.io/
Peer to peer, allows you to have mutable content as ipfs, but also supports having sites updating real-time. But most importantly it allows you to have websites where other people than the site owner can post content, which means you can have sites such as youtube, forums, imageboards, twitter (hopefully not. Jk they already have a thing similar to it). All without servers. Noice. It also has tor integration.
>freenet: https://freenetproject.org/
Again peer to peer, allows for websites and for user-content sites too (it says it has forums). Citing them:
>Communications by Freenet nodes are encrypted and are routed through other nodes to make it extremely difficult to determine who is requesting the information and what its content is.
Also has some functionality to hide that you are using freenet called "darknet". Seems similar to zeronet except more concerned with security and anonymity

I think it was a honeypot, or it just was a shitty, buggy clone
The media did go nuts though so it wasn't that secret


> some people make a clone on some p2p network
Really? I didn't know about that. I mean about it being distributed
> And a bunch of people hosted cp and stuff Like that unknowingly because of that.
That sucks. But I'm sure you can make moderated p2p networks, so I'd say it's the moderators fault. If someone posts cp on a normal ib it will be hosted there till a mod removes it. Same on p2p


>muhhhh decdntrlaization

fuckoff with this shit. It never fucking works, its communism for content.

I have an IBM eServer xSeries 345. It's been gathering dust in the basement for awhile now and I'd like to turn it into a data storage server running linux.

However, the drives are only 18GB each. Are there terabyte-sized drives compatible with a system this old (made around 2001) that I can buy for a reasonable price? If so, what would make a drive compatible? Anything besides the connector?

Any recent projects you have completed or you are working on? Favorite language? Anything programming related.

Nice, thanks. Is it also "tag compatible", meaning we'll be able to use scripts like 4chan X, X-links?
Good luck on your projects by the way.


>recent projects
...I'm a failure at life, sorry
>favourite language
lisp and forth. They both have the idea that a language should be able to expand with new syntax to create domain specific languages (DSL) to solve problems more easily. Also both use bottom up approach. I'm really fascinated by them and would love to use them to make something to really "get it" and not just have a superficial understanding
>>Favorite language
Isn't php infamously bad? I mean I never used it but it's probably the most hated language together with javascript


>Any recent projects you have completed or you are working on?
I've been a bit bored recently so I've been working on a Generator-Program in Lua. You just insert what you want(So if you want a Name, you insert "Names") and if you want a Place then you insert: "Place".

>Favorite language?

C is #1 for my Favourite-Languages. Java is second.
