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?

Also depends how close you are to a black hole.
Also, the mass of the planet.
Large planet, longer day. sometimes
Earth time = 24hr.
Also how fast does the planet spin.
How close is it to the sun.

I'll try to explain.( i got some of the math from my ham radio textbook.) If I shine a flashlight in front of me, I will measure the beam to travel at about 300,000 km/s, which is also known as the speed of light. (Fun fact electromagnet waves "radio waves travel at the speed of light.)
And if you are moving at 200,000 km/s faster than me, and shine a flashlight ahead of you, I will see the light from your flashlight moving at the 300,000km/s. It will appear to me, as though the light from your flashlight is moving away from you at 100,000 km/s.
But when you will measure the speed of that light, relative to you, you’d think it’d be moving at 100,000 km/s as well, but instead from your perspective it will ALSO clock in at 300,000 km/s. What time it is depends upon your vantage point, and so there is no single absolute time.
Finally, because of relativity, each point in the Universe experiences time at a slightly different rate. For example, when we observe the cosmic microwave background, we find that we are moving at a speed of about 630 km/s relative to the background. That means we experience time a bit more slowly that something at rest relative to the cosmic background. it’s just a tiny bit slower, but added over the entire age of the Universe, our cosmic clock is 30,000 years behind the times.
Thats all i got. I used to have a couple good quantum mechanics books about this but sadly they were destroyed.
I guess some other of the stats are online too


Unification theory says there is only one thing.
We used to think there were 4 fundamental forces, but we found out they were all the same thing. Strong em force, weak em force, electromagnetism, and gravity are all the same thing. We know that gravity is the same as time. High mass objects warp space time, which both generates gravitational forces (space) and changes the rate at which time flows relative to the rest of the universe (time). But the fact of the matter is that gravity is a myth. Objects warp time around them. Matter is sucked from areas with a high rate of time to areas with a low rate of time. It's all one thing. There is only time, and ripples in time.
But Einstein was Jewish, so I take all this with a grain of salt.

I found this project recently. It's and alternate client for Discord (and slack) and although not open source you could probably trust it more than ((((discord)))). It still seems to be in beta though, there are some unimplemented features and logging in is finnecky. But once you get it working it's great for power users.

Honestly, I could care less if I ever stepped a foot outside being part of this damn natural planet ever again. I'd much rather live out my days part of a space colony with controlled climates and living in an artificial space about the size of an average home for the rest of my life. Fuck the world, fuck people, and fuck the weather. I just want to be comfy in my living space watching anime, playing vidya, and pleasuring myself.

Also, ProTip: if you want to have a GUI environment after installation, you must select the CD disc/USB stick as the installation source when the installer asks for it. You can get Void Linux here -> https://voidlinux.org/


If you choose to use the installer .iso to install a GUI, you must run sudo xbps-install -Su to install updates after installation. If you set Network as the installation source, you can easily install a GUI after installation by running:
sudo xbps-install -S xorg xfce4 linux-firmware wifi-firmware bash-completion
The -S option causes xbps to first sync the list of available packages and the -u option performs an upgrade.
If you want to also have a graphical login screen, follow these instruction: https://wiki.voidlinux.org/Post_Installation#Display_Manager
If you need proprietary software or microcode for your Intel CPU, you must first enable the non-free repository, like so:
sudo xbps-install void-repo-nonfree
and then install the microcode and everything else you need:
sudo xbps-install -S intel-ucode dwarffortress
and finally, regenerate the initramfs and update grub:
sudo xbps-reconfigure -f linux4.19 #replace the version number with the version that you have installed

Does the 2nd law of thermodynamics imply the extinction of humanity?
You see, entropy always increases in a closed system, such as the universe. That means that the entropy will get higher and higher. But human bodies I'm pretty sure aren't peak entropy. At one point to grow further entropy will have to destroy all human bodies. Any sorts of computer human replica too, and I'm pretty sure anything that can move on its own/think. Entropy is disorder, and those two things require some order.
Am I wrong? Is there something I'm not considering?


As we understand it, yes, the laws of thermodyamics does imply that humans, and everything else in this universe will all end up a giant cloud of weakly interacting particles. However, scientists don't estimate that happening for another googol years or so (a 1 with 100 zeroes after it). That's plenty of time for humanity to thrive, flourish, and potentially maybe figure out a workaround for the whole entropy thing. After all, something had to put our universe into its initial high-energy low-entropy state, so who's to say it can't happen again?


In my opinion, humanity will go extinct long before entropy becomes an actual problem.


Makes sense. Thanks for restoring my hope!
