Good fiction pertaining to the internet or an internet is really hard to come by. When it does come by though, it hits with force.
I've been running Lancer for over a year now and I've always appreciated the inclusion of HORUS as one of the setting's major figures. One of the best pieces of fiction I've read pertaining to not just the internet, but the nuances of internet culture and how it affects the physical world.
What are some other examples of really good internet-related cyberpunk writing?

/cyber/ vehicles

I want to get a schway bike for cruising and freedommaxxing, so I will probably buy something from before year 2k, so I wouldnt have to bother with digital repair systems.
Unfortunately I just can't decide what kind of style I want to drive with. I think all of them are fun as fuck and while I guess that cruisin through the city on a nice cruiser or chopper styled bike, I also think that a more sporty alternative would feel schway.
Obviously 1 is the most /cyber/ because it's a customization of 5 but I haven't got any mechanical experience yet.

What would you recommend from a /cyber/ perspective and why?

Also talk about schway /cyber/ vehicles in general, may it be concepts, upcoming, existing or custom vehicles.

Laptop cooling

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.

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.

Brave browser supports IPFS websites

The Distributed Wired is coming, anons. Just at the time that we need it most, too.

>The Brave browser recently added support for the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol in its beta release channel (desktop only).

>IPFS is a peer-to-peer (P2P) protocol that can be used in web browsers to visit websites that are hosted by the website’s visitors instead of a central web server.
>This is called the distributed web.
>When you open an IPFS link (ipfs://example/) in Brave, it will open it using a public web-gateway server by default. Gateways are public web servers that proxy content from the IPFS network via a traditional web server.

Verifying AGPL compilance?

With the GPL, for any binary that you distribute, you have to make the corresponding source code available. With reproducible builds (see: https://reproducible-builds.org/), it is possible to verify that the binary was indeed compiled from the available source code. All you have to do is to compile the source code yourself, and compare the resulting binary with the one distributed. For an example of this in practice, see guix's `challange` command.

With the AGPL, if you run a service accessible through a network, you have to make the corresponding source code to the service available to the users. But is there a way for the user to verify that the service provided corresponds to the source code available? I can't think of any situation where the service couldn't just simply lie about what it is.

Noodle shop

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.
