I have a Dell laptop which is really thin and lightweight; I have a hunch that they compromised the effectiveness of the cooling and thus the performance of the system. Wondering if any wirenons have experience of working around this.

Basically, after a period of comfortably managing CPU-intensive tasks (not even cryptomining, I mean watching YT or audio editing in Audacity), the entire system turns horribly sluggish. I've worked out that this happens exactly when the CPU temperature reaches 97C; at that point, the CPU takes aggressive action and limits its clock frequency to 399Mhz (normally it's up to 2GHz). It maintains this throttle until the temperature is back below 87C.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening? It seems the root of the problem is the temperature reaching a critical point too often.

I have thought about underclocking the CPU so that it goes at a slower frequency than 2GHz; this would reduce performance, but if it stopped the performance cliff-drops (by making the CPU temperature increase more slowly), it'd be worth it.

The CPU is an AMD Ryzen 5 2500U, by the way.

>What OS are you using? If you're on windows, I found that permanently setting battery mode to "best battery" makes the laptop run very cool
I'm on Linux. The equivalent to "best battery" mode is to set the frequency governor to "powersave", e.g. with this command:
cpupower frequency-set -g powersave

However, this didn't really make much difference to my issue. The laptop still heats up very quickly.

Interesting…thanks anon, I'll look into that.


I came across a similar issue, it is an old Windows laptop (not mine), and it is cold to the touch but according to the task manager, the CPU runs at a pathetic frequency of 0.5 GHz and the CPU load never goes over 25% (does that mean only one of the four cores is used? or is it because it should run at least around 2 GHz?). I have no idea how to check these things on WIndows and searching around it seems like everyone wants to convince me to download some malware bundled shareware to do things that should be trivial to do on a modern operating system. Should I just clean it and hope it makes the issue go away or is there something that needs to be checked?

overestimating the capabilities of windows, frien? Also how the hell does that thing run it and be any usable?

It wasn't. I took it apart only to realize that it does not actually have any fans. I booted a live GNU/Linux on it, the sensors said the temperatures were normal and the CPUs were running at normal frequencies. I rebooted into Windows mentally preparing to upgrade faulty drivers or just give up but suddenly it was working normally too. Maybe it was afraid that, now that I knew the speeds the CPU was actually capable of, I would ditch Windows, but unfortunately it's not my call. I have no idea what was wrong or how to avoid it happening again in the future, but that's life running Windows, right?


>took it apart only to realize that it does not actually have any fans.
Is it supposed to be one of those fan-less designs, or it just that fucked?
>Maybe it was afraid that, now that I knew the speeds the CPU was actually capable of, I would ditch Windows
Spookware is spooky, huh? :D
>avoid it happening again in the future, but that's life running Windows, right?
Well pretty much. I'd say try convincing whoever has it to ditch win, since I hardly imagine them doing anything that would be win exclusive software or anything.

Do you have to know Russian to truly be /cy/?

There was this Russian e-zine and one issue had an instruction on how to make a toilet flush trojan. I believe this article deserves an English translation, but I can't find the zine no matter how I try, forgot the name of the site or author.
Also, for aesthetic places I recommend https://urban3p.com/ a Russian digger/stalker urban explorer/hacker in English community website with 2011 web aesthetics. Apparently it exists since 2008, but I know it personally only since 2011, and there are no earlier archive captions to see what was before. Icons, fonts, comment sections and dense menus looks very 2011's to me.

Most of the things you listed have been going on with cash.
>Having to pay a monthly subscription to your local gang so they don't mug you
This is known to occur. Classically this has been called 'Black Hand' or extortion, but now, Drug Dealers are extorted by gangs.
>Hiring an undocumented doctor because you can't keep up with the increasing healthcare costs from excessive government regulation
1930s Mafia had 'underground doctors'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_P._Moran


OP's point is that all of this would be able to happen online now. What OP fail's to realize is that currency hasn't been accepted as crypto's only long-term use yet. People are still falling for blockchain casinos and NFT's when there is no long-term prospect in them at all. Cryptocurrency is the only long-term use of blockchain that I know of, and yea it is pretty cyberpunk


The only anonymous privacy respecting crypto there is and that should be the only one used it Monero, until the IRS and FBI crack that then who knows what'll be next. We might just stick with cash then.

I've been following Russia's steps towards an independent internet for a few years now, but it was always more about having independent infrastructure in the case of possible cut-offs of services such as DNS, etc. rather than the creation of an isolated network. Until now, apparently.

>Russia began active preparations for disconnection from the global Internet

>No later than March 11, all servers and domains must be transferred to the Russian zone. In addition, detailed data on the network infrastructure of the sites is being collected.

Given how this seems to be a full-stack solution rather than filters on top of a global network, I don't think conventional VPNs would even be able to circumvent this. It's hard to tell how real the news even is, though, as I can't find many sources on it (nor can I speak any Russian). Anyone who knows better, please feel free to fill us in.


Russian here, Please dont follow things like Nexta, its pure bullshit. Its a ukrainian tabloid which posts hyper sensationalized garbage.

That document is to force "public services" (government websites and minsteries) to use russian hosting and forbid them from things like cloudflare. Its not related to sovereign internet.

Fearmongering to get people to leave Russia is a tactic of theirs.


Why would creating an isolated network be different from preparing infrastructure for when you are cut off? What would be the difference?


The former would have no connection to the outside world at all.


I mean, from the point of view of infrastructure. I don't think Russia is in a position to reinvent everything and produce their own hardware for it. Even if they are to avoid hardware from the USA, the rest of the world still uses the same protocols and conventions. Plus this is not like Cuba where there are no cables in the ground. How could you tell if they are preparing to isolate themselves or are preparing to be isolated? It seems to me that it would involve the same things.

Worlds can be spooky, I once was wandering all night there. Met a guy with very weird, spider like avatar and he showed me some stuff. Most people just stand and do nothing tho.

Do you know about Nexialist?




>>922 i know about this game just because of Nexialist, LOL


Does this thing work through central server, and exists since 1995 without major malware problems? The map files for each "world" could be hosted anywhere as I've seen, a regular zip archive (http://users.worldsonline.com/jimbly/custom/custom.htm), but how do you see who's visiting same "world" map as you? Rather strange system:
+ it's not quite like games where map files, user avatars and user interactions within each map explicitly belong to central server, e.g. in Roblox
+ neither it is hosted on independent servers like Minecraft, Garry's Mod, BYOND where minimal and optional interaction with central server is required (for skins and account info)
+ is it more akin to "virtual presence" systems like Dissenter or Google SideWiki where your client application reports to a central server that you're visiting a certain webpage, and then you can add comments, or in case of worlds.com - report your character position and write to chat so other players would see you. It does work with any "world" as long as all users share same map file?
My question is: when central server stops existing, would users be able to interact with each other or not and have there been efforts to make standalone servers?

Damn, so many of these old virtual world games and MMOs are destined to vanish one day. At least we have WoW, Runescape and Ragnarok Online servers preserved by pirates.

Is this true, was it really much more fun to use computers back in the days of mainframes?

I have a similar experience when discussing ideas. In the tech world it seems to be the goal of others to break the idea down as far as they can, maybe to seem smarter? Or they just genuinely don't think of the applications. I talked with a friend years ago about the iMacs that stand right up, how instead of needing to remove the screen to access the main board they should have designed it too slide out like one large card. He tried to associate this thought with a Nintendo Switch, his plan being that because he associated it with a Nintendo Switch he could discredit the idea as being dumb and childish, I really don't understand his thought process beyond that. It was annoying.


Can relate. Have interacted with certain types who suffer from that mindset and can end up shooting the messenger with unintentional friendly fire if presented with an idea that doesn't fit in nicely with their preconceived notions and of course autism is a thing.
>the iMacs that stand right up
Ugh… I've had to repair a few of those and like a lot of Apple gear they can be annoying to work with. Would have preferred access from the back panel, but would have settled for a main board sliding out. It's not like it would be impossible to implement a feature like that if done well. That even sounds like something Apple would have considered, since they have a certain way of building things because reasons. Wouldn't be surprised if there was some mid level engineer at the fruit factory that's still pissed off to this day because such a proposal was dismissed.

I feel exactly the same way, but I think what you said about the dissolution of family could be applied to communities too, a collection of people where every one is important to the whole someway or another. I've never felt like I belonged anywhere but in my clique of close friends ever since I was in high school, and most people now cling to groups so large that they really have no meaning in them or online "communities" where they are only bound together by some common interest.

Although I guess I might just be a schizoid who, after lurking on image boards like this for 7 years, hasn't posted a single thing. I have always considered myself to be an autodidact instead of socially awkward though. Mostly due to the fact that I do have my 'tribe' in real life. My close friends are a good way for me to share and flesh out my ideas, but they don't engage with me out of compassion, but interest in said topics and trust that we won't just call each other gay and end discussion there.

My 'tribe' I found to be the only outlet left to "forge yourself" guess having like minded friends in real life keeps me from posting on sites like these, where people like us, who are influenced by not exposing ourselves, are forced to learn on their own.
That being said these friends can only get me so far so I often do find myself having to develop my ideas by myself.

Despite everything you said about the thing you think is missing, I say that a real outlet to help define yourself does exist, granted that you may never be able to find it. Gather yourself some like minded people in the real world THEN you can chat with them online. That's the only way I've been able to start and maintain an online relationship of any sort. Put yourself into a program or go to some place regularly where you're forced to be around people and I'm sure you'll be able to find the people you're looking for.

Best of luck,

Anyone else listen to CaptainBlackbeard Radio? It's about the most /cy/ thing I've ever heard.


Never heard of it, what's it about?



I have heard it. its a really funny pirate radio show some cannabis vendor who larps as a pirate makes and releases on the Dark Net. The music is awesome in it and its really politically incorrect but in the funniest ways. Its like Kentucky Fried Movie if Kentucky Fried Movie was a radio show about the DarkNet. I hate podcasts but that show is awesome.


I've heared about it but I haven't yet made the effort to actually look up where and when to hear it. Maybe some day, maybe not


yes and ita actually pretty cool

i refuse to go to endchan though

post it here if youre reading mr blackbeard


I tried to like it but it's annoying

It's loud and full of really long samples from movies. I prefer podcasts that basically just curate good music, or consist of thoughtful discussion. Trying to do both ends up being half-assed. This podcast is neither, the music isn't anything special and he basically just yells and goofs off.

I suspect most of the posts about it are from him, but I'm sure some people actually dig it.

I am wondering how I could build a Moreno Crypto miner in C++ but don't no where to start.

I want to build something like xmrig.com and would like it to connect to minexmr.com using port 4444 and 4443.

I have looked for sample code but couldn't find any that meet my criteria.

Also I would like this to be less the 100 lines of code if it isn't unreasonable.

My biggest question where I get the hashes to decrypt.


Can't tell if you're serious or just another botnet miner trying to get us to do your work for you.
>probably doesn't know programming in C++ because it's not feasible in 100 lines
>needs it to be a certain size limit almost like its a payload
If you're serious about this, go onto github and look at some projects. Read some documentation. No one's going to do this for you


You're missing some significant knowledge here. I'm going to assume you're a kid and not a retarded 36 year old pajeet so I'll cut you some slack.

-Get a textbook which has you write small programs that require understanding of computer science algorithms. SICP is a classic but it's in LISP. Not sure why you want C++ since it doesn't appear you're very familiar with it. Unless you understand these concepts you don't have much of a chance of building something comparable to xmrig. This knowledge will remain valuable no matter what language you use.
-Once you understand the basic programming concepts, go to https://www.getmonero.org/resources/developer-guides/ and get an understanding of how the mining actually works.

If you just want to make some monero, you don't need to build a miner, just use off the shelf ones. However, it's not always most profitable to mine monero directly (especially if you're using a GPU or something). Check out moneroocean.stream, it's a multi coin mining pool that pays only in monero. They have guides on how to set it up, keep trying until you get it.

like books… good books. putting out graphics, multiplayer, gameplay, AI, physics, LAN and servers? where do i find all of those? know them all?


>>1911 bump


I also would like to know this bump

File: 1637720148336.jpg (1.01 MB, 2647x1042, IMG_20211123_132616.jpg)


how much coding is enough for me to make a single app with multiplayer features,LAN and working 3d graphic? how thick?
where can i find the resource to be able to tackle one whole product say, in unity, unreal or maybe writing from scratch in Vs Code?

basically knowing everything todo and nottodo within the span of the project and improvise along that guideline? not leaving me with a blank canvas/textpad i have no idea what to do with?

pls link me books or basically outline me how much is needed to do so and so


It will depend on what kind of game you are trying to make, a multiplayer "Pong" will be a lot easier to make than an MMORPG.


>>1909 lets start from Pong with an active userbase. a pong dot IO i guess.
