Yeah, obviously. Nobody expects one man to play cat and mouse with Patreon forever, much less implement needed improvements like Fanbox and SubscribeStar support (which he said he would do). He could immediately invite the kemono.party developers to maintain his shit if he's too lazy/busy and the funding is still there. He could also just dump the source code openly before fucking off. Obviously transferring the terabytes of site data is less viable but not impossible given today's cloud technology for this exact kind of thing. He doesn't even have the decency to keep it up for another month with the warning, running away with the leftover funds.
He's also still a fucking dumbass for catering to simps that caused more trouble than worth in the first place, "we have lots of space", "oh no we're running out of space", from somebody who used to cater exclusively to 8chan. Now we have to witness all of these simps coming out of the woodwork yet again with their metric fucktons of begging. (Yes, I am qualified to say all this because I did contribute paid content to the site.)

This letter is to inform that the Patreon Pirate Site better known as "Yiff.Party" has passed away at the last hours (Presumably killed).

My bet is the source code includes hardcoded shit to different accounts/services that would reveal his identity and bring down the whole house of cards. The whole system is just as much about how you organize the thing and provide redundancy against authorities and hackers, than how you code it.

Both you and Richard Spencer deserve to hang from the same rope, you filthy communist.

Far right means hardcore ancap. Fascists and nazis are fucking left wing. Not as left as outright commies, but they're still left, in terms of state size and the need to meddle in people's private lives in order to sculpt the population into perfect citizens.

Basically, you shits only disagree on the internationalist virtue-signaling vs. nationalist virtue-signaling. And commies are daft enough to want to control property AND people and delusional enough to think they'll reach an anarchistic society without hierarchy or currency through enough Stalinist dictatorship. Nazis and fascists, as stupid as they may be, are still smart enough to realize that they only need to control people and controlling property logically follows as a consequence, thus bringing the state back to a more manageable size and that "true communism" is a pipe dream and will never be reached (without an infinity of resources and technological advancement, this goal gets further and further away as the population increases).

And commies are foaming at the mouth cause they got stuck with the inferior version of the ideology. They even won a world war, but their version is so fundamentally crippled that it faceplanted again and again almost everywhere.

a4cbd9d7 No.3599635

Ancaps are just another reason for people to exclude others from their idealistic society that is eugenically assigned for them. Everyone you end up viewing is a philosophical opponent because you are defending a concept you don't want bankrupted by others who don't match your preferred race bracket. The demographic you are pushing is therefore inherent to a spectrum of a racism/cultural conflict making it compromised to a stereotypical fake society by degenerate exclusion. You are just scalping yourself and forfeiting occupancy of the basis for society. Ancap is an independent society not reliant on a homestead unlike most others.

a4cbd9d7 No.3599636

Ancap is what happens when China, uses capatilism with communism and knowingly builds on itself reserving the benefit for its central government. They make cardboard cities that fall apart because the workers dont genuinely have to build the things, they scalp their own projects profiting off of it being completed but actually being cardboard.
The money gets sent through a chain of other companies who put in cheap labor and cheap product, and the central government banks on that.

The "Chinese" Government then outsources its work loads to contractors who do the same thing. And build cardboard cities for other countries. So it doesn't happen to them. They bank on it. Essentially ancap is like selling a knock off of the real thing until its the real thing.

a4cbd9d7 No.3599637

The formula is that you build something that isn't even working and then throw it up as a display model. Then get other people to make the display model that IS WORKING and some how profit off of it. While actually not even having to worry about it because the chain pays back what they make. That is why when you freelance you can just say you are something and not really have a degree for it, then if you succeed or fail at it the insurance companies will pay for it.

I'm more worried about, you know, the whole privatization of the institutions that have monopoly on dishing out violence - the army and the police, essentially enabling billionaires to become warlords with private armies.

But I guess it only matters to morons like you if it's racist.

a4cbd9d7 No.3599641

it is it turns a race problem because you've seperated yourself from other invested cultures once you decide to be ancap you are an independent of everything. while other systems based on culture and race and their gender base compete with your idea of ancap. So your idea of ancap may be adopted by other people it turns into a racewar.

Well any anarchist systems can't really survive as long as there are competing forms anyway, because they'd get conquered ASAP by a more organized outside force (like a state) so this entire discussion is pointless.

>>turns into a racewar

But it's literally a class war.

A rich guy of ANY OTHER RACE can oppress me just as easily with his private security force, you colossal fucking dipshit.

And trust me, I wouldn't be even one fraction of a fraction of a damn less or more frustrated than I already am if a white guy did it to me instead.

a4cbd9d7 No.3599645

yeah but it involves people so class and race are the same if they are based on your own references, then you are just a subject consisting of an identity or profile.
ClassWarefare is right too.

The point is it is made to be adopted by bigger systems it becomes gateway to other large ism's like nationalism or something where they start actual war.

The question is not "where".

But "how".

The left isn't even trying as far as class is concerned nowadays. Race, sex, gender, disability, grandmother's shoe size. They'll look at everything before actually looking at social class and having to admit that they are themselves the problem and all of the problem. Almost all the big billionaires who made their fortune off other people's backs are leftists. Like adherence to leftism is some sort of indulgence currency, except to atone for racism not sin. Scratch that, it's definitely the modern version of sin. Wokeism is just the new church. Fucking hate the lot of ye.

2478c3c7 No.3599774

fullsuiters will get extremely passive aggressive towards you for going to the suit lounge at cons if you're in a partial. They like to make the argument that the suit lounge is for suiters to cool off or whatever.

Personally, I really always thought most suits look retarded. Still if I were to get one it would mainly be so I could anonymously be a goof off, and I really wouldn't want to have to completely change my entire outfit every time I wanted to take the mask off and chill for a bit and likely get DOX'd without the mask.

Moot point. I've been to a few cons and they really aren't my bag. Getting random enthusiastic hugs from fat autistic strangers in costumes at Morphicon was scarring. Then again I was probably a lot more of a target for creepy unwanted physical embrace as an awkward teen fag than I am now as an awkward 30 year old fag.

You're still here. Except the dude who leaves everytime I start talking to him. I assumed furry cons are extinct and we were going to start underground sex parties, so partial looks convenient, specially for aging males, and fits my body heat pattern better, wish I had yours. I fixed the mental issues that kept me from giving people hugs but I'm not really welcome at furcons, and I don't know why you'd go there not wasted steam, that never made sense to me, then again maybe that was the problem, but I don't really think so.

Well, I may have had plenty of opportunities to get assimilated into the millennial Borg. Could have stayed in the city and become a prancing libtard faggot. But I chose not to.

I was complaining for complaining sake probably, as in, if I wanted someone, it'd be hard to figure something out.

Thankfully, I don't. I kinda hate people. They're usually a nuisance to have around. And I'm too fucking lazy and autistic for a relationship anyway.

Because it's the only place I can vent without fearing the banhammer. The social medias are fucking cancer and really up their own assholes these days.

Yeah I know, my meme collection needs fresh memes. Can't be assed though.

I use bluerays for permanent storage. Hard drives are a piss poor idea for permanent storage, even if you know how to refresh the surface. I dropped a plate from desktop tower height onto an external hard drive recently. Good thing it was just backups cause that's all it took to turn a hard drive with several terabytes of data into a dead-ass paperweight. Or in my case, a tripod weight. Yeah. Also bluerays come with scratch-resistant coating and seem UV resistant too nowadays, which is nice.

SSDs still have price vs capacity ratios that are not to my liking. Maybe in 5 years.

But I am considering a small cheap boot SSD.

I know SSDs are superior in every way, I just don't want to pay for it. I may as well lose all data on it due to a purely logical partition error, not just mechanical failure. Wouldn't be the first time that happened either.

I bet you still use a vcr

If you stopped being a contrarian for a second, you would understand what I'm saying.

HDDs are (for the time being) cheaper per gigabyte than SSDs. Fact. You're not going to find a 4TB SSD for under 100$ today, that ain't happening. Maybe in 5 years we'll be having a different conversation, but not today.

And hard drives, SSDs, memory sticks, MicroSD cards whatever are still not permanent storage. One bent pin, one file system write error and your data can get mangled, a chip can get fried through no fault of your own and that's it.

There's no reason to not use blueray, unless you want to be a fucking smartass about optical media not being "in" because people are too shit for brains nowadays to wait 20 mins until their disc finishes burning (just fucking watch youtube while it does its thing geez).

A drive is about 50$ used or new, depending on deal. And you have from 25GB* (actual capacity 23.3GB) up to 100GB* (multi-layer) per disc. A spindle of 10 cheap normal ass discs is about 230GB worth of storage and costs nothing and if you lose or break one, the entire archive isn't destroyed. Plus they're scratch-resistant, UV-resistant, and most important of all, PERMANENT. You have to physically do something to it to destroy it. And even then, it may be partially readable. Panasonic claimed their discs have a lifespan of up to 50 years https://panasonic.net/cns/blu-ray_disc/advantage.html But even half that is good enough.

Oh, and your precious flash memory would have shat itself long before that, because of one insertion or removal too many.

Hmmm, hard to tell. Hundreds of gigabytes maybe. Human porn though is virtually non-existent in my backups.
So it's just furry stuff *coughwithsomebestialitysprinkledinbetween*.

An annoyingly big part of my backup seems to be youtube videos though. I'd guess >66%. Proved useful in the end though. Half of youtube got nuked or is about to be nuked due to various -isms, bullshit political scaremongering and moral panics in the last few years. They don't even pretend like the terms of service and three strike system matter anymore. And we all know who is to blame.

2478c3c7 No.3601208

oh, they still abide by the three strike rule. They just wont tell you until you have three strikes, and then wont tell you what the strikes were.

Potentially, but not before destroying or overloading more vital elements of electrical grid infrastructure.

The theoretical EMP or solar flare (more accurately, the resulting geomagnetic storm following a coronal mass ejection) that wipes out “all hard drives” would severely damage transmission lines of electrical grids long before disrupting spinning or solid-state storage media.

First, by disrupting or overloading the flow of electricity across transmission lines, any device would be rendered inoperable or without wired power. We saw this occur in the 1989 Hydro-Quebec blackout. The Canadian Shield is a massive, old stone formation that allows for little topsoil. When a highly-energetic geomagnetic storm rolled across eastern Canada in 1989, the current had nowhere to ground out and kept moving, blowing transmission breakers and overloading transmission lines along the way.

This event cost Canadian and global markets several billion dollars.

Second, if a prolonged period of geomagnetic storming occurred, some non-grounded devices might pick up enough current from a geomagnetic storm to overload (we saw this during the Carrington Event of 1859, during which telegraph operators reported their signaling devices failing, conducting current, injuring operators, and starting fires w/ telegraph paper, etc).

All that being said, any device not connected to power for an extended period of time will eventually self-discharge rendering it’s storage medium useless.

Humanity is increasingly dependent on a constant, uninterrupted flow of electricity. Building new, and/or retrofitting our existing, electrical infrastructure is becoming a mandate from US government regulators working with public and private utilities.

Bottom line:

A severe enough geomagnetic storm will damage transmission lines long before it damages storage media.
An “EMP,” which theoretically would originate from a high-yield nuclear device, is not the biggest issue in this hypothetical scenario. The biggest issue is the detonation of a high-yield nuclear device, which the world has yet to see occur, as an act of hostility. May that day never come.

another reason the military is essential. They have gear specifically hardened against that, and in absolute worst case scenario they have ultra low frequency communications that communicate by literally vibrating the earth.

I never got trained in hardening, so I don't recognize those models. Probably.

The extent of my knowledge is limited, I'll admit. I did at least have to sit through a few hours of briefing on it a few times, since I was a satcom/radio guy (now known as RF Transmissions), and I don't recognize anything mentioned from your list.

2478c3c7 No.3601216

The only reason I even know about those ULF stations, is I was part of a squadron that always ran "secret" bases within other bases, just because they were really inconvenient places to attack. Deserts of some classification usually, and we supposedly were there to provide sat/radio communications if there was a catastrophic attack. We practiced a lot on what are less actual communication satellites, and more big geocentric mirrors that bounce back sat signals.

You can fry a few circuits with a emp/solar flare, but you can't just zap a mirror and expect it to stop working like a mirror.

They called us the secret squirrels on the host base, and called ours the hard rock.

I'll grant you this power, but you only get to see big ass middle aged man titties being massaged in shame, without anyone knowing.

You have no control over when it happens.
