Have you ever dumpster dived and picked up any schway shit? I built my first 2 computers out of parts I found on street.

some! depends on the strength of the door jamb/steel door etc. in a regular house usually a good crowbar (strong legs) will work

>>210Lucky! I would love to find some great parts in some dumpsters around here. But I live in a small redneck town where no one ever even got into computers yet now everyone has to have a damn smartphone.The only interesting find I've ever had in a dumpster is a nice bowling ball that I decided to throw off a building and let it roll into oncoming traffic just out of sheer boredom.

Saved a Sega Genesis last year that had Vectorman in it. But that's been it since the early 2010s when I saved a 13" CRT that I still have in my room.

It looks like a promising game, but there's already too much drama surrounding it to come out unscathed.

I thought /cy/ would appreciate the aesthetic of these photos from Dhaka, in Bangladesh.

One of the most cyberpunk things I can think of are alternative intranets. The biggest one I know of is in Cuba, called SNET.
Info: https://media.ccc.de/v/34c3-8740-the_internet_in_cuba_a_story_of_community_resilience
There are also examples of this in the DPRK. And, most recently, Russia has been supposedly planning to cut itself off the global Internet (https://www.pcmag.com/news/371347/russia-is-about-to-disconnect-from-the-internet-what-that-m), although I very much doubt they will. I remember reading it wanted to do this in partnership with other BRICS countries, and make another "Internet" to counterbalance the West's influence and power on our current one, but there wasn't much interest from them.

Do you think things might still get worse in the near future?

In the meantime, I suggest you guys start running LibreMesh (https://libremesh.org/) with cjdns (https://phillymesh.net/2016/04/21/cjdns-on-openwrt-part-3-installing-configuring-cjdns/), in case worst comes to worst.

This is the Wearable Computing group, MIT Media Lab in 1995. Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) were close to impossible to get so most of it was hacked out of (analog!) display kits, videocam displays or expensive entertainment headsets. Fast forward 20 years and affordable HMDs are still a pipe dream. The bags carry the Single Board Computers and batteries. They are similar to the Pi/Arduino/Beagle, which are widely available these days and very much affordable. Input is usually done by a chording keyboard like the BAT or Twiddler (Jeld by the guy far right. I believe the company that makes it is still around.)

If you are interested, look for archives of the USENET group comp.sys.wearables.

i think culture has shifted due to all things cyber written and inked in the 70s-90s becoming mainstream. i mean, the matrix is /cyb/ af, and that was heavily funded by a big studio. cyberpunk effectively became mainstream. so much of what gibson predicted came true. some of it we're living due to hardware getting so cheap. i have scores of systems laying around that i can throw stuff on. phones are dirt cheap too. we're living it. Thoughts?

Lol I'm no economist but I don't think it's value would increase at all. If it's super easy to get, there would be more coins which in turn makes them less valuable. Not to menton it'd have to compete against BTC and all the rest.

There was a strange asian news show playing at a noodle shop I ate in earlier today. Half the screen was taken up by subtitles in fifteen different languages, and the anchors had the kind of engineered persona you'd expect to see in a religious recrutment video or a piece of wartime propaganda. I assumed it was created by some enviromentalist organization since the news stories seemed to revolve around animal rights (it was a vegan place and the owners where chinese so it would make sense that they would want to play that).
They where talking about disaster relief after an earthquake in japan when they said "The victims of the disaster where grateful to the supreme master for sending her blessing". I then noticed that the channel was called Supreme Master TV. Later on they had a montage of people from different countries singing about how the supreme master cured all their problems. All those subtitles? They where the languages of every country that has followers of the supreme master. I did some research on the supreme master later. She is a vietnamese spiritual teacher named Ching Hai. Turns out she founded the restaurant chain. I looked at the logo for the restaurant, it contains the supreme masters symbol. They where good noodles, would go there again.

I presume that you were eating in a place called "Loving Hut"? It's a vegan noodle shop chain run by Chinghai Sydney, (the supreme leader that you mentioned).
Found a list of their US restaurant locations.

I've got some family in Houston TX, so maybe I'll stop in and try it out next time I'm there.

Late nights suck. I'll be looking into c programming later for sure. It's been awhile you could say. Patience is the virtue to have these days. Sometimes difficult, though always necessary.I've met someone. I distance myself for a multitude of reasons, but the foremost being I don't dare hurt them like so many others.This is real guilt unfortunately, not put upon by the forcefulness of codependency, so not a write off.I know full well the nature of my monstrosity, and I've burned so many bridges getting here.I don't want or need answers/help/care, just spaces and there just isn't any room for it where I am.

As the snow falls on Christmas Eve, I have an update. Spreading wifi nodes through battery operated routers with a refreshed power and password list should be fairly doable, but i lack h/w to test. Openmaps api could be useful but gmaps is mature.Could just be a highres image with a legend too. Getting chased around by security was fun the other night as i grabbed some more files for sifting.Found a few hideyholes while out too but it was late and my camera sucks. Will upload if interesting.Need work soon and i hope my friend stays in contact. Wish i could offer more support, things are hard/busy here. Merry Christmas Lainons.

Hi. Haven't given up on this place yet. Everything is temporary anyway. I'm attracted to the idea of working in a team, each of us covering each other, in terms of digging and infosec. I'm working on it slowly. Once I have work my stress level should go down, and I can make more time. I do better under structure, my own too, and if I have a monetary stream I can do more.One of my team members I have history with, this is both a block and a plus. I need strategies to deal with that, so I don't fuck up again. Some others are local, one I don't trust or understand lol, but eventually, we'll parse each other or part ways. There's another programmer in the area that I'm reaching out to.I hope koi doesn't shit this up like the discord, but whatever is in the cards, I guess I'm prepared for the worst. I'm cool with elsewhere too, this was just convenient and not under lens.Bye for now and thanks for all the fish

>>824In what ways have I shit up the Discord if I may ask?And I'm trying to keep the new Wirechan as close to this one, with changes of course. But I want it to be appealing.You can reach out to me, I guess?
