You don't pay, you don't get security patches and updates.

Boo fucking hoo, what ever will I do if Windows Defender isn't up to date with the latest KB software to protect me from whatever CVE was recently reported 8 months after it's discovery?!

Oh the horror of someone potentially sneaking some obscure .ini file into local appdata so they can see what porn I'm watching, what movies I'm pirating and whatever shitty techno beat I'm making in a bootleg copy of Ableton Live.

My scheduled PowerShell cmdlet that switches the regedit entry from 1 to 0 for the little "Your copy of Microsoft Windows 10 Pro is not activated. Please click here to activate." box weeps for the future of Windows security updates.

If nobody even gives a shit that Doggo can't afford an SSL cert on his shoe salesmen salary, why are we supposed to care about security updates?

I have a Lenovo laptop running windows 10 I use it for work stuff and to watch Netflix while I make dinner and stuff like that. It works p well and idgaf about the politics of operating systems because I am a man and have better things to do with my time.
Lenovo gets caught putting backdoors into their computers like every other year, so if a spy agency isn't stealing your data Lenovo already does.

You have to connect the dots here. The next step as internet speeds get faster and the price of volatile memory continues to decline is having an OS that is not physically installed on your computer, but is a sort of cloud service, and your PC only contains the software necessary to boot, connect to the server and download needed components to the RAM as they are needed. These companies are hellbent on getting to a point where you cannot own any sort of software, movies, games etc. It's far more lucrative to sign you up for a subscription than to sell you something. I'm pretty sure you don't technically own a copy of anything you buy on Steam or iTunes at this point. We're fucked man. I will argue until I'm blue in the face that you don't need social media to function yet, but I do think it is at the point where you need to use some sort of internet connected device to function in society. At the same time software has gotten so complicated you and your buddies can't sit down and hack out the software you need the way you could 25-35 years ago. If SJWs fuck up Linux, Microsoft and Apple has everyone over a barrel. I give it a decade.

I have about 5 external hard drives for music, movies, videogames, pictures and porn all for this reason. I'm always downloading/renaming and uploading to physical external HD for the day the torrents and youtube rips stop. Gonna save this post and put it on the porn drive.

Yeah it's a chink company so of course literally all it is is an extension of chink intelligence gathering.

I've heard dozens of stories from army intel guys about how Lenovo is constantly giving free or really cheap equipment to any private contractor working with the military. They would show up with all this Lenovo equipment to hook up into a secure network and then the army has to come in and say "Uh no, destroy all that equipment now."

Yeah but I donít care that much about anyone reading my shitposts or spreadsheets of IP addresses or any of my employers intellectual property.

I just want to do my work and watch some shows. Literally donít give a fuck about backdoor chinks spying on my amazon prime habits.

the ironynihlism path of not giving a fuck was completely legitimate up until the powers that be in the west made it abundantly clear that they want to start doxxing normie nobodys who hold edgy opinions to their employers, families etc, and started doing it on a small scale. when they can, they prly will. its not as bad in the states but they'll put you in prison for posting the wrong opinions in parts of europe for sure.

that's the thing, you don't need to be being an activist for stuff like this to happen to you anymore. just for shitposting here they'd want you strung up too.

up until that threshold was crossed yeah, electronic security was some gay shit for gay nerds, feds, and criminals.

wouldnt be worried about chinamen tho better them than zog

however ill give it this: there's nothing you can do to actually make your shit secure. you think a lenovo backdoor matters? anything with an intel or amd chip that isnt ancient is backdoored. your software doesn't even matter. but if it did, every choice you have is backdoored. everything you type on the internet, every jpg you post, is backed up in flat storage, searchable, and social networks can be drawn from quotes you have said or images you have posted across the entire internet and even anonymous boards. it's all varying degrees of fucked, so really why even care? at best you can obfuscate your presence a little bit but under scrutiny they can always find anything they want about you.

so really that leaves us with politically advocating against this shit happening because on a technical level theres no way to stop it.

this is truth.  I'm a network engineer & I have to say, when you truly understand the capabilities of current technology in terms of surveillance, data storage, communications, & analytics, you realize that Orwell's 1984 presents a comparably rosy view.

Realistically, you could have one device/one email account for social media/shitposting and another device/email account for literally anything/everything that is even remotely connected to your personal identity and it would work.

they can link your identities very easily across separate emails, devices, etc even if you're on an entirely different internet connection and having undocumented mexicans pay your net bill. and link those to your IRL.

shit man im a fucking retard on the internet and i could probably do the same manually without access to all the crazy shit they do. but don't think they would -- your accounts will be linked automatically, and will be manually reviewed if they ever take a look into it.

hell they can link anonymous 4chong posts to you.

assume anything you do on the net is not private. the only reaSOn i post about wanting niggers to die is because everyone in my life already know my opinions, and i'm not dependent on the normiesphere/system, so i'm not rly risking anything by doing so.

It wasn't blackmail. It was an incoming hit piece from The Jew Yorker. lol

Quote
Torvaldsís decision to step aside came after The New Yorker asked him a series of questions about his conduct for a story on complaints about his abusive behavior discouraging women from working as Linux-kernel programmers. In a response to The New Yorker, Torvalds said, ďI am very proud of the Linux code that I invented and the impact it has had on the world. I am not, however, always proud of my inability to communicate well with othersóthis is a lifelong struggle for me. To anyone whose feelings I have hurt, I am deeply sorry.Ē

You know, it's not like these subversion attempts by glow-in-the-dark tranny freaks are anything new. This shit was common knowledge after GamerGate. Vidya nerds told them to fuck off, even if unsuccessfully because the cancer had already spread too deeply by then. Tabletop nerds were targeted and told the trannies to fuck off, metalheads were targeted and told them to fuck off yet the :aspero: types who run Linux didn't even try to put up a fight.

Install Haiku or Hurd.



Linux is a volunteer project. Contributions are made on a volunteer basis. This piece in the New Yorker is essentially complaining that Linux doesn't attract enough female volunteers, and the reason for that is because people swear at each other and the environment isn't professional enough. What a bizarre time to be alive.

Here's a link to the article in Imgur in case anyone wants to read it without giving the New Yorker clicks.

There's been some pushback. Stallman is against restrictive COCs and he's basically jesus in the FOSS community. Stallman is a fat autistic socialist, but when it comes to this kind of shit he is right every single time. There have also been articles like this on the front page of /r/linux.

The people who called for the COC are already calling for the heads of top kernel contributors, and also the new code of conduct doesn't go far enough. Notice that this is one of the people interviewed by the New Yorker. This is a hostile takeover.

It's clearly being funded, has anyone tried to find who's organizing and spending money?

From what I've seen it looks like there's movement to turn open source into a proprietary product that you sell and someone owns the rights to. It's certainly behaving as such especially going after the people who heavily contributed so they can be legally gagged and unable to respond or demand compensation.

This is so someone can make a quick buck and try to maybe move in on the Android and IOS market in the hopes of possibly being bought out by either Apple or Google.

The autists at Kiwifarms are doing some great work. They noticed that Sarah Sharp was trying to go after Ted Tso as the first CoC victim.



Quote
Sharp herself is a nutjob who recently decided she was nonbinary. About 2 years ago she had a sad and attacked Linus and the Linux community repeatedly because Linus is a big meanie-head and refuses to reign in the community's ability to call shit coders shit:

The Linux community called this behavior out for what it was. Sharp was a member of the Ada Initiative, who was apparently, if rumor is to be believed, trying to honeytrap Linus for years. The Ada Initiative purportedly closed down three years ago, but according to tech spergs it really just rebranded itself and fragmented into a number of "Diversity Consulting Firms."

As for Theodore Tso, he's the one who shot down sole RDRAND number generation, and Linus Torvald backed him up:

It's never been proven, but many believe that the RDRAND was demanded by Intel for such a backdoor. I personally wouldn't doubt this.

Sarah Sharp also used to work for Intel.
Not gonna say that's supicious, but... Well.

It's starting:

 http://voxday.blogspot.com/2018/09/code-of-conduct-working-as-designed.html

Quote
Mark Kern@Grummz
I tweeted that Linuxís new code of conduct would be abused to witch hunt devs.

Right on cue, 3 or 5 devs tried to use my opposition of the code of conduct to try to accuse me of violating it.

All the while using behavior that was against the code of conduct.

I rest my case.

Mark Kern@Grummz
You can add one @ZDNet reporter to the list of witch hunters. Came after me just today.

Geoff@Geoffiam
I dunno man, I think having codes of conduct to allow mediocre programmers to police good programmers is precisely the way to move the industry into the direction of a giant bureaucracy. What could go wrong with that?

Corey @corey5135
I've been called out for "aggressive behavior" because I stated that I had already evaluated a suggested implementation & decided it was the wrong way to go (different project).  They were putting me in my place for daring to disagree. Last patch they got from me.

Tucker Goodrich@TuckerGoodrich
Yeah, there's a lot Vox Day says that I don't like, but I think his analysis of codes of conduct is spot on.

"...the Code of Conduct is working as designed when it chases off the productive members of the project"
