>>fg-M7EG3PY2 (OP) >mandatory useragent let's not forget the mandatory referer
tech is heck
the web and email are spyware by default, http has mandatory useragent and smtp has a shitton of unencryptable metadata are there any decent alternative protocols to them? >gopher it is nice, but i want something more rich, able to be filled with colored text and animated gifs >gemini seems okay, but obligatory tls is pure retardation, what if i intend to run it as an onion service? >serving postscript files over ftp is this a thing? sounds alright in my head, if a bit autistic idk of any alternatives to email, what i have in mind is something that allows you receive long messages and download them to your machine to store them long term (file transfer support not necessary) maybe an ftp server that only lets people upload .txt files? (when i say ftp i don't mean vanilla ftp, it can be sftp/ftps too)8 replies, Click here to view all.
https://httpwg.org/specs/rfc7231.html (Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1): Semantics and Content) > A user agent SHOULD send a User-Agent field in each request unless specifically configured not to do so. Pretty sure the referer header isn't required either. HTTP/2 RFC for reference: https://httpwg.org/specs/rfc7540.html
I go to university for Computer Science in September, I'm extremely excited that I'm going for something I'm so passionate about. Does being passionate about technology bring you joy /g/? I wholeheartedly enjoy learning new things related to tech whenever I can. It's just so fucking cool.
Democrats literally btfo you cannot spoof the TCP timestamps to get the rate of ballot stuffing that took place. I can't wait tbh. Fuck Joe Biden he's a stupid nigger monkey.14 replies and 2 images, Click here to view all.
I want to learn more about decentralized social media, but I cannot find any good resources online.
>>fg-X4RKYUVE (OP) https://activitypub.rocks/ ActivityPub works with inboxes and outboxes. an actor sends a post to their outbox, and an actor that is subscribed to that actor's outbox will recieve their messages in their inbox. boards in fchan are actors, and they subscribe to other board's outboxes. this is basically it, pleroma and peertube use the same mechanism for their posts, and every interaction (including likes and comments) is sent as an activity to the reciever's inbox and the sender's outbox.
>>fg-X4RKYUVE (OP) Yep to go off of some of the replies you got everyone has an outbox and an inbox - so on pleroma and mastodon every "actor" has an outbox and an inbox that posts go to. Fchan has no "users" so the board itself has the outbox which can be viewed for the different boards just change the instance url and board letter to peak through: https://penchan.xyz/g/outbox Further reading The proposed spec for Fchannel: https://github.com/FChannel0/FChannel-Server/issues/9 The actual activitypub spec: https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/ Someone already linked it but https://activitypub.rocks/ is a great starter resource
I just switched from Artix to Void, gotta say it's far more comfy (and minimal I guess). The only thing I don't like is that there is considerably less documentation when compared to Arch (and it's forks)19 replies, Click here to view all.
I have my entire computer routed through TOR. And I also use the tor browser(using a bridge) as my daily browser. I have no desire to view onion sites or anything. I just like privacy in the same way I don't like people checking my emails or text messages. It's okay to know my phone number, it's okay to know my email, it's okay for my isp to know I use the internet. But it's not okay for them to track me. I don't even watch porn. I just hate being stalked. Now, how do you like/hate tor?
What do you guys think of Mental Outlaw? Are there any genuinely good tech youtubers out there? Linus is a consoomer shill, Luke Smith is a pretentious ass, every other one is either boring as fuck or super annoying. Mental Outlaw is the only one I've found to be consistently interesting, and funny.32 replies and 4 images, Click here to view all.
Any of y'all have a home server? What services do you host on your own? I'm planning to eventually get a server and host some services such as: openvpn, syncthing, maybe a git server and some media streaming shit i guess Share with the /g/ fags6 replies and 1 images, Click here to view all.
