Distributed internet

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

old shitbox needs new drives

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?

IRC & Discord

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.

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.

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?

First picture of a black hole. Just imagine, these were total conjecture not too long ago. And now we have photographic evidence. I once heard it said that saying you believed in black holes when they were first theorized about was like saying you believed in unicorns; you'd get laughed out of the room.

Extraterrestrial Discussion

Do you think there's non-earthling life in the universe?
How much? How far away, or how close?
Is it peaceful, or warlike? Intelligent, or primitive?
Do you think we'll ever make contact?
If so, will we contact them, or will they contact us?
How might we communicate with them?
How would humanity react to the discovery of intelligent life?
Are we doomed to be alone?
And any other discussion regarding extraterrestrials.
