budget: around a $1000
What I need:
- new as in "never been used before" (people watch porn with their laptop, I don't want to type on a keyboard covered with the semen of a previous owner)
- something lightweight (13-14'')
- sturdy construction, can't afford to buy another one before long, can't afford to buy cheap, had to sell my NEET body for those $1000
- RAM, more RAM, even more RAM, never enough RAM, upgradable RAM
- quad core, but doesn't need to be too powerful, low watt
- no discrete GPU, I don't game, I need Intel integrated graphics for Lunix (so, Intel proc only)
- silence, I need a lot of silence. I've never heard the fans of my Asus Zenbook ux305la, it's ok if the fans kick in during heavy loads, but I don't want to hear them while I daydream. I mostly daydream and barely heavy load anyway.
- Atheros AR5B22 AR9462 wifi card for Lunix (they cost less than $10 if I can replace the factory-installed card)
- good battery life would be nice
- hardware compatiblity with Linux and why not FreeBSD, OpenBSD, OSX, Windows 10 and TempleOS...
- matte display
- good keyboard
- all parts serviceable/upgradable
- 2 M2 SSD would be great
- legacy ports like USB A, SD card reader, HDMI...
Usage: shitposting, SSH clients, chan browsing, programming, running virtual machines
The new old model Lenovo T480 with i5 8350U, Intel UHD 620 graphics, 1920x1080 matte shitty screen, 2 DDR4 RAM slots ticks all the boxes except maybe bad cooling/silence. Am I missing anything or can I order it tomorrow?
When I'm walking my dog I like to pretend I'm on the run from an elite force of dragon people and she's sniffing out a route to infiltrate their castle without being spotted. This involves a lot of paranoid looking around, hiding and running. I wonder if the whole village thinks I'm retarded?
I highly recommend using cloudflare's csam scanning tool to stop illegal images from appearing on your site. It also helps to block proxies as well. I think as an imageboard community we can stop this shit but we need to start taking measures to put an end to it. If you want to step away from your board for awhile don't leave posting open. It will get spammed. Just put it in read only until you come back.
And yes, I'm posting this on all the imageboards I find. No I'm not a bot.
Pi network is a cryptocurrency that you can earn with your phone, just install the "Pi network" app on your phone, enter the code "Berssange" and enter the app once a day to prove that you are not a bot and that's it, you’ll earn an amount of currency per hour, the app is lightweight and doesn’t waste resources, the currency is new and priceless, it’s a good time to enter, then just sell the currency when it enters the market.
Good opportunity to get Pi for free and profit much later.

Heyo /ho/, it's almost 2022. Who's still here? I mean, aside from that yuriposter guy from kissu. I don't think this site is active enough to attract regular members, and the guys from the past that said they loved slow boards have all disappeared as well. It's weird that I could probably count the amount of threads made this year with my fingers. I always check this site at least once a month, and it's become a habit to check it frequently (about once a day) during the cold seasons. I know a majority of the old crowd dipped when OG admin stepped down, but some of you guys are still here, right? Oh, but speaking of the old admin, what happened with him? I recall some people asking for his email. Has anyone contacted him and asked about newer projects in the works, or just about how his life has been going in general? Anyhow, back on topic. How's it going, gang?
Don't worry, 4taba .
You're invited to the New Year's Eve party, too.
We didn't forget you. You'll always have a special place in our hearts.
You'll be coming to play Gikopoi with us on Friday night... right....? Right 4taba..? You're not going to let us down?

Midnight, EST time (-0500)
I've been thinking about the gyaru trend. Nerds fantasizing about girls from subcultures they know almost nothing about except the most superficial and stereotypical elements. It's bizarre. The gyaru of otaku media are simulacra. Many things are in otaku media perhaps, but what makes the gyaru case so eyebrow-raising is the obsession with subcultures one is not actually a "fan" of, or a part of. It's like being a poser, but not because you're trying to fit in, but rather because you... think being a poser is cool. Thereby, you render the meaning of poser meaningless. You could make an analogy with so-called art hoes and similar internet types who just care about aesthetics not the thing behind the aesthetics, or people who hate anime because it's "childish" but then admit to liking straight shota hentai. Maybe it is a sign of a larger breakdown of subculture in general, where the individual appropriates whatever he sees fit, and there is no rhyme or reason behind it. To quote a prophetic britpop song, now it's IN to be OUT.
One of the things I most enjoyed about Kemono Friends was the knowledge that I could enjoy the series and it's surrounding culture in a completely casual way.
After I watched it a few times, I felt no need to obsess over it, no need to research the drama at Kadokawa, no need to follow fan artists on Twitter for the latest fan comics, nothing. Just a relatively small image folder and I was fine. I haven't even touched S2, which seems to have been a wise choice.
Coming from a background of obsessing over things, with Milky Holmes coming to mind, it's nice being able to lightly enjoy something. Whenever I see a Friend image, I'm immediately filled with good feelings about enjoying the show, rather than any bitterness that obsession usually brings.
Do you cats have any anime that you feel this way about?
Knowledge is the Key, whoever is superior have the Knowledge that you don't have, Secret societies members ranks different than the other due to their knowledge level, those people whose think that they know better than all of you whose don't know for the Nation's interest, but actually its for their own interest, and we all are nothing but collateral casualties for them, they Brain wash us through our schools, closing our conscious, blinding our eyes to the reality and the facts around us to realize the knowledge that we suppose to have in order to retrieve one mandatory thing, its our true Rights, our Humane Rights that you do know from within, and have no clue if it exist, the Rights that we lived seeing others enjoying it while we are suffering Hunger and Deprivation, they didn't even stop, as they think that they superior than us, they thinks that they have to control us, manipulate us, vaccinate us, limit our existence, eliminate our own children, because we grow in numbers to the extend that they cannot tolerate, so they go with a plan from the beginning, but something they didn't plan for have came up, their whole story have leaked out, and a new knowledge have awakened early, that's why they have rushed everything to push the people to be vaccinated as soon as they can, so they cant think, or act, here is the knowledge that will make you superior than all of them, know what this is all about and awaken your consciousness:-
The System Name: System 37 (RXMHQ)
Description: Complete System that replace all the current invalid systems retrieving the humanity looted Rights back.

System Slogan: System 37 has been created to eliminate all the current invalid systems around the Nations decades ago, such invalid systems that caused the Chaos we Human beings are living now... all this about to change once you have the knowledge...

So apparently I've been playing a lot with this program lately https://github.com/seebye/ueberzug. The program does what it is designed for which is, rendering image file into your terminal emulator. Out of all that, there's one important feature that is missing for my requirement. It's kind of awe that you can't have transparency rendering from the image into the terminal. Every time I render it, the transparency in the image got striped out. It could have been much more fun if the transparency in the image still intact.
Name the latest anime you've watched or manga you've read right now. You don't need to talk about it or your opinions on it if you don't want to, just name it.
If you see this post, take the 2 seconds just to reply.
I'll start. Last read (reread for the third time) Parasyte.
Just started watching Nurse Angel Ririka SOS. I'm enjoying it right from the word go, and had a similar experience with Wedding Peach. Magical Girls shows made for girls are super neat, tickles an itch in me I couldn't place for a long time.
Any of you watching shows about frilly pretty super heroines?

I've almost prepared the first release version of a decentralized textboard. It allows threads and replies to be shared between multiple servers, and threads are assigned to tags, rather than boards.
What kinds of features should my board have besides just these? It's still very minimalist -- a blank slate for progress!
Kyuuyaku Megami Tensei is such a different game to the original. I feel so bad for the developers when I hear people calling it a direct remake, or telling others to just skip the first.

This recently came out, a pleasant bit of news if any.
I've enjoyed Irem's, now Granzella's, works for a long time, both their arcade and console stuff, so it's nice to see their legacy still trucking along even after going under. Hopefully this means they won't get rendered Bankrupt again due to a natural disaster.
1. Choose a name and avatar
2. Use keyboard arrows to move around- the arrows on the ground are screen transitions
3. In the chat window you can type #rula to teleport
4. Remember shift+enter to send text
5. You can set someone to ignore by clicking their avatar and choosing 'yes'
6. There are little gray arrows in the corner of the "game" screen for areas that support audio or video streaming
There's a bit of a tradition in logging in gikopoi and hanging out for New Year's Eve as it goes through various timezones. There's a chance this will be the last time it ever happens because of the flash brouhaha.
Who's going to join me?

Hello 4taba! We're a SFW imageboard that attempts to be rid of cancer you'll see on other imageboards nowadays like porn, gore, and normalfaggotry. Some of our users are a fan of 90's and 00's related media and culture but anything goes as long as it doesnt break the rules! We have a cytube and sooner or later our self-hosted stream/radio will be ready, and we cant wait to see you there!
I just found this random guy on a bunch of archived Peewee's Playhouse [adult swim] bumpers saying their more than decade old decision was childish and stupid (examples: https://youtu.be/3dTwKsIGkGI https://youtu.be/ehCTcTMFru8 https://youtu.be/4rCDxChOXLQ). So after seeing him on every video I naturally clicked on his profile and he has his home address plastered on his channel https://youtube.com/channel/UC4wqZjwG0bd1eFu27OArwlw/about . Manchildren are truly the internet's greatest gift
This thread is for reports and reviews of new anime that isn't detailed iris harem crap! I'll start:
Gal to Kyouryuu's anime adaptation is really good. If you haven't watched it, basically every episode starts off with a cartoony dinosaur that looks like Bloo from Foster's & his galpal. Sometimes they'll watch TV while eating ramen, or the gal will get a headcold and the dino tries to cheer her up. Then the second half of every episode is a live-action fever dream. I wont spoil anymore than that.
Sore dake ga Neck is a series of mini episodes produced by Toho's animation studio. The show is set in a depressing looking convenience store, and every episode focuses on the mysterious Mutou-kun. The show's animation style is pretty blocky, but overall most of the designs are something you've seen before in gag manga.
Anybody here into keyboards, modern or retro?

Please add an ATOM feed for new threads per-board, and (please?) make an ATOM feed for new or non-sage comments. I'm very lazy and don't like to manually visit a bunch of different websites. Alternatively please e-mail me and we can discuss an API so that I can integrate your board into ANUS (Anonymous News Universal Scraper) a key component of Multi-Channel a federated textboard network.
It was a bright dream shinng as a day .
O I wish it stayed a dream my youth.
I said, become great,magestic as beacon.
Smilling from invincible injustice.
Where did they displace a aspirations ? .
And they blew tear of kindlness .
Their extortion has hunted the songs.
blossom, oh my memories .
And brush out my sleeplessness.
And shower your self by the high light .
What's with me ?.
I Can not forget that melodiouse, vibrant tune .
What's with me ?.
I can not get out from the darkness of sorrow tunnel .
This dream will live in my memories for eternity.
Post cool finds using the method in pic related.

I remember someone earlier this year bought a domain for a new gurochan, but he never actually made the site and now it just 404s. I really want gurochan back. I want to have a place to discuss gory movies and cartoons, new doujins and good s*** porn
I'm watching this after reading it, and really enjoying it! Lum is cute, it's pretty funny, it's a good time, overall.
But I just can't seem to be able to create a successful thread about it.
What are your thoughts on it? On the author's other works? On other older anime and manga?
Anyone here currently living in japan?
If so, how did you do it?
I'm recently considering to move there, my life here is just not going where I wanted it to go. I'm about to drop out of my studies, and I don't have any direction at all after that. I'm just getting older and older and the way this is going I'm either going to off myself in a few years or ill work some stupid job at a burger restaurant or something. And if that's the case I might aswell do that in japan right?
What I been considering is that I would go there on a tourist visa which would give me 90 days to find a job there, and then change it to a work visa which would increase the period up to 5 years. My japanese is about N2-3 so that should suffice but obviously I still have to brush up on it.
But it does seem very risky. I'm not sure how easy it is to find work as a foreigner since they don't seem to be too liked there.
Just felt like writing all this I don't know. If you got some input or whatever feel free.

Today I confirmed my X/i3/lightdm doesn't like to get up at morning.
I wake up and startup my debian install, all's nominal.
I log in and it crashes, going back to the greeter screen.
I just go to a console and do my shit, suspecting there's some Y2K fuckery going on.
When 10 am rolls in, I restart the lightdm service and log in, successfully.
What a shithole this software is.

To host, hosting player forwards a port (detailed instructions are available on the internet) and provides IP with a port in an IP:Port format, launches the game with sokuroll and uses the Vs Network menu to start the server. Client connects to provided IP and port and plays game.
If you hate M*rk that much, don't worry - we share the sentiment. You don't have to come to 8moe thread in that case - simply host games in this thread and enjoy the game. If you don't signup you'll be stuck eating cake for a while.
Searching for imageboards is hard, because there is no convinient list with imageboard. I mean, why would you want to visit something you don't like? It would bad for everyone, imageboard users, because they would be pissed off by your behavior, and you, because you don't really like the place.
This is why I've made an imageboard list, which allows you to describe common acitivity and things you would like to have on your board, and decribe activity and things you don't want to see on your imageboard.
Also, I've updated my imageboard list.
Now you can see all imageboards we have in the database.
Consider adding your imageboard there. It is free.
This thread has had a long time coming, but yes, here is the obligatory weird youtube/dailymotion/vimeo/etc video thread. As someone who used to make their own home movies before youtube even existed, I have had an account since I was eleven, when my cool uncle that used to have a basement arcade (before he got married) told me about it in 2006.
I just wanted to share something I've discovered and have been using for years.
I see programmers using various color themes in their editors, some themes are even designed specifically for programming like "solarized" that some programmers swear by.
But I think they've got it all wrong. The real "perfect theme" for programmers is anything that has _constant luminosity_.
Think about it, if you have syntax highlighting then your eyes are constantly going over colors of varying luminosity's and every time you go from one color to the other (which happens a lot) the iris in your eye has to adjust to let in more or less light than the previous color.
For the average programmer this could mean your iris needs adjusting multiple times per second as you read a single statement with several colors.
That sounds really hard on your eyes, so what if you make a color theme that has constant "luminosity"? Meaning that as your eyes dart around the code your iris is staying fixed letting in a constant, unchanging, amount of light the whole time. That way the muscles in your eyes can relax even as you're staring at a dark terminal screen all day long.
Pic related is a constant luminosity theme (I just opened up GIMP which has a color picker with a luminosity slider, and chose 8 colors with the same luminosity values).
After switching to this theme I've hardly ever had any eye strain even after spending an entire day programming.
Of course it has some downsides, like you can't read the text over a colored background, but that's usually not a problem when it comes to syntax highlighting.
Just sharing my discovery in case it helps someone else who gets eye strain as often as I did.
Discuss dead websites here.
I found this really old anime website (waku.com) that seemed to collect lewd anime images, movies and doujinshi which they put on CDs and sold over the Internet. They seemed to start selling manga and toys later. There seems to have also been an Anime Picture Gallery with over 20801 entries and you could upload your own images there (sadly none survived). Most of the site has been archived poorly with barely any images surviving and the ancient server backend of the site causes a bunch of weird redirects to blank pages, but I managed to find these somewhat working pages:
Any oldfags that remember this site?
This is a sequel to Rolypolys here https://compu-lsd.com/wiki/index.php?title=Rolypolys_no_Nanakorobi_Yaoki

I didn't see a thread about this subject when lurking around, and I was curious about what sort of stuff Taba listens to aside from singles.
Internet Radio seems a bit quant in the face of streaming services like Spotify and the like, but I've been enjoying being able to listen to music online without signing up for yet another service. But I'm also the kind of fossil that still downloads music files, so I guess I'm odd anyway. I ran in to GoodVibes a few months ago, and have been using that for the radio stations I listen to, like BitJam and Ryno Ryno.
Most of the podcasts I listen to have been NPR stuff, like "This American Life", "Serial", "S Town", etc. I guess that would count as entry level fair, but it's still nice and pleasent to listen to in general. I also used to listen to Chris Oatley's podcast for concept art.
Librivox has been my go to for audiobooks, which apparently /lit/ hates. It's been really useful in finding longform stories and philosophy which I lack the attention span to read properly.
Relatively recently an English translation of Taikou Risshiden 5 became available.
Taikou Risshiden 5 is a 2004 Koei Tecmo RPG/strategy game where you play as a single character of your choice during the Sengoku Japan period with a wide variety of potential activities and minigames. It is probably mechanically the deepest game of its kind.
Have you heard of it, played it or are interested in playing it?
I'm learning scheme as my "first language" using How to Design Programs. I've had previous programming experience before, but this is the first time i'm learning seriously with the intention of being able to understand common computer jargon like what a bash file is or what a port is. Whenever I look at other languages now, they seem so fucked up. I think, where are the parentheses? How do you know when one function starts and the next ends? How can you use an or function inside another function in c if semicolons end a function, or is or not a function in c for some reason? In middle school, I tried learning c. I don't remember what they do, but pointers were a nightmare and I'm scared of it them now.
Other languages seem like their syntax is full of arbitrary things what line you're writing on being important. In scheme, there's no difference between brackets and parentheses, they just contain things. Functions always go at the start of parentheses, and everything else after, so there's no order confusion. A good ide like DrRacket keeps track of parentheses for you too, so not having enough or too many isn't a problem. Like legos, you can just put these simple pieces together unlike a gundam model or something. It seems like it works so well to me, I don't understand why other languages are different. Is there a good reason why other languages don't have the same format besides speed?
For decades, the "nerd" or "otaku" stereotype has been embedded into popular culture and cartoons. In some instances, these references to socially awkward hobbyists have been used as a means for writers to vent about fans they don't like (ie; the Animaniacs "Please Please Please Get A Life Foundation"). This thread will be a set of examples to nerd/otaku characters that have been written into cartoons, comics, video games, etc. If you wish to contribute, by all means post some examples (preferably with the source)
How suitable would kotatsu be for facilitating anonymous software development? You can open threads for issues, post patches as attachments, do code review the way they do on mailing lists. Of course there's no integration with version control software but mailing lists lack that too and they work just fine.
There was another thread but I couldn't find it, maybe lost in the migration. This guy's art is pretty nice, and he seems to put something out every other day: https://www.pixiv.net/users/5753136
WHY IS THE SUBJECT FIELD RESTRICTED TO 40 CHARACTERS, THAT'S FAR TOO SHORT
Talk about your favorite local arcades, ask for recommendations for places to go in your area, etc.
One of my personal favorites in Michigan is Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, which brings me to some sad news I just learned while searching for a picture to start this thread. Marvin Yagoda, owner of Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum in Farmington Hills, MI, died Sunday, 8 Jan 2017, at the age of 78:
For those who have never been to Marvin's, it's an incredible collection of coin-op arcade machines, including videogames, pinball tables, mechanical novelties, antiques, machines commissioned specificially for the Museum and more. Yagoda founded the arcade in 1990 when his personal collection became too large to contain, and it has been a local landmark ever since. He often stopped by the Museum to hang out and chat with patrons while wearing his trademark suspenders, so many people like myself got to personally meet the man behind the magic. Very sad to see him go, but he lived a long life and touched the lives of a lot of people.
Anyway, sorry to start the thread with a downer, but I thought a little memorial would be appropriate. What arcades do you go to? Anybody else have recommendations for Michigan?
