What would be /cyb/ perfect room? Clustered? Full of wires?
I always wanted to make a room as similar to me as possible, so i could spend my entire day in it and enjoy it's aesthetics.
Post pics or describe specific things that you think it would make your room look nicer of possible.

Neon lights and colourful LEDs.
Some kind of anarchic work and tinkerplace occupying the room. The wires must come from somewhere afterall and the low life makes money recycling electronics, breeding something into marketable offspring, or having an oversized wildly modded together cpu dominating the room for some nefarious online sheme in its rented apartments or improvised hideouts.
If you dont have a hobby like that and are willing to life in the junk of all the shit you collected from your cities dumpsters or sustain a humongous electricity bill for a gamerPC set up taking up half of your room or a bunch of aquariums and lavalamps bubbling away with lit up liquids as part of an omnious trinket collection that will either gain you the admiration of your guests or many confused questions this might get somewhat complicated to pull off.
The coroporate jobber low middleclass or anyone with an officially listed income might life in prefab appartments where most surfaces are made of some stuff or plating that looks as if it was quickly assembled like IKEA furniture, most surfaces being in use for something as space is expensive in the 21th century. The less cramped places might follow a somewhat pleasant industrial design.
If you want your room to look from the inside like a 70s multistorybloc looks from the outside you need to commit seriously so it doesnt look hideously or ends up being a problematic construction and if you got a landlord this might end up not achievable.
Darkness and colourful lights, a careful selection of furniture(Steel cabinets?) and wallpapers or even concrete/rust optic spatula technique coatings for selected walls if your landlord is ok with it or you are lucky to own your four walls might take you to a desirable outcome tho.

Hi. Where do you think the best places are to promote my new cyberpunk book, Hemispheres? I won't pitch it here in respect for your space, but I have been developing my website and I need to test it to see how people are going to react to it before launch. https://www.markeverglade.com

My email is markeverglade.author at gmail dot com if there's any feedback.

Thanks!

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.

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.

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
