I did some digging... but there was no grave.

Let's start with what we know about Terry Davis.

>Terrence Andrew Davis, born Dec. 15, 1969, allegedly dead Aug. 11, 2018, source https://encyclopediadramatica.rs/TempleOS

>Let's find out where he lives

>Go to 1:22

>Terry's address is visible in the TempleOS about section

>We go to https://blockshopper.com and input the address found in TempleOS about section

>Current Owner: Terrence E Davis and Marietta C Davis

>These are his parents, the data matches perfectly on http://templeos.wikia.com/wiki/TempleOS_Wiki#Family

So this is where we start looking for the grave. We search for Terry Davis, all states, deceased within the last 90 days.


>Terrence Davis

>August 10, 1952 - July 4, 2018

>Ellicott City, Maryland | Age 65

>Age mismatch, state mismatch.

That's fine, maybe we might have to look for Terry instead of Terrence.

Yes I'm aware they do something like you're describing. I actually had someone witness it with my cell phone one day. We were on a road trip and I was explaining that the Government searches for keywords in conversations. I was using a rooted android phone for GPS that has everything disabled related to google.

I started saying known keywords like





and after a few seconds it responded

>The president of the United States is Donald Trump

Like I'd used voice search which was supposed to not even be installed and at the very least totally disabled. Freaked my friend the fuck out. I told him I'm used to it by now.

Anyway, I figured that is what happened. Any place where I've mentioned Terry in the last two months brings out a lot of "anons" within minutes. Anyone that doesn't believe should do what you're suggesting and try it for themselves on a dead forum/board.



I'm going to try that out.



little suspicious.


still no proof of terry's death. cia niggers clearly implicated in the fraud.



any proof of him being alive?

Ah yes, the George Soros responsible for funding anti-communist movements throughout the Warsaw Pact countries in the late '80s and early '90s. Not of the shit you listed are communist, in fact that Left is often quite critical of BLM and their calls for Black Capitalism. You have nothing and you never will have anything because becoming a billionaire outright demands a person be one of the most cutthroat exploitative motherfuckers around. They would never support anything that actually challenges the economic system that gives them their power; they will never support any sort of communist movement.



Can we skip to the part where your empty liberal life causes you to swallow a bunch of pills? We've lived in your neo-liberal "utopia" for long enough--we know it's dysfunctional, just like Calhoun predicted. We need small, homogeneous societies.

They will support anything which confounds their enemies to profiteer from conflict, or knock out a powerful adversary.

This is what is wrong with kikeflare: http://www.crimeflare.com:82/honeypot.html



Didn't work for me. Cuckflare isn't retarded, they don't just trust UA. They look at IP also.



Actually for tor IP's they let the tor browser through. Which means you need the exact same useragent, platform agent, javascript oscpu, accept headers, appversion agent, canvas fingerprint, and your browser can't broadcast anything unique like chrome's botnet bullshit in the canvas.id. If you can do all that with a browser that isn't modern chrome/firefox 52+ and isn't the tor browser then you can bypass the capcha. But let's face it, at that point you will need to change your default supported fonts to be whatever the tor browser supports too, that way you perfectly replicate the tor browser except for the backdoors and telemetry portion you skip over.



Then again, they could just test for the backdoors and telemetry in the future, which you can fake but it would be difficult as it requires writing functions that return whatever cuckfare/nsa expects from the tor browser user.



you don't need JS what are you talking about. just compare your headers to that of Tor Browser for a plain GET request and see what's different

>What is XMPP?

Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is a communication protocol for message-oriented middleware.

Unlike most instant messaging protocols, XMPP is defined in an open standard and uses an open systems approach of development and application, by which anyone may implement an XMPP service and interoperate with other organizations' implementations. Because XMPP is an open protocol, implementations can be developed using any software license and many server, client, and library implementations are distributed as free and open-source software.

>What client should I use?

Get Conversations if you are on Android, Gajim or Pidgin on desktop PC.

XMPP is on the harmful software list for a reason, faggot.



The guys above also wrote their take on Matrix at https://about.psyc.eu/Matrix



Uriel was right about quite a few things but XMPP is not one of those.

Go > java/python is also fucking laughable considering how shit Go is.



Yes, IRC is still alive and all. I haven't heard of STOMP, ever.

You may argue that the "base" IRC specification is simple, but anything beyond basic plain-text communications requires implementing customized solutions in both the server and clients. Even "registering" a name is something that must be done by NickServ, instead of something defined in the protocol, for example.

I don't know about the XMPP protocol itself, but self-hosting a server was trivial, and while far from featured as Discord or even Riot, the clients available make it easy to communicate securely with other users. For those who care, that's a BIG improvement in comparison to PGP when trying to convince people to start using something other than botnet.


Also this.

Some basic questions that we can talk about

1. What is the best cipher, and which modes are the best for what? How would you cascade multiple ciphers?

2. Which hash is the fastest, or the most useful?

3. Is it possible to combine hashes to prevent both pre-image attacks and collision attacks?

1. CBC is best for decryption-heavy operations, XTS is best for encryption-heavy operations

AES, Serpent, Twofish, Camellia mix-and match. Most secure cipher closest to the plaintext, weakest cipher at the outer layer.

2. KangarooTwelve > BLAKE2 > SHA384/512 > Skein512 and BLAKE512 > SHAKE128 > BLAKE256 > SKEIN1024 > SHA3-256 and SHAKE256 > SHA256

>if someone steals your private key they can decrypt your communications

No shit captain obvious. That's a design feature of the crypto protocol, not a flaw. Secure your private key better you gigantic faggot. Don't just share your password/private key with random idiots.




Either you are retarded or pretending to be retarded.

If you are using a secure key exchange protocol then an attacker can only impersonate you if he obtains your private key.

If your shitty protocol is vulnerable to KCI (Key Compromise Impersonation) then an attacker can furthermore impersonate others to you without having obtained their provate key.

For SHA3 half of the work is done for you

>(liberals [...] think Islam is the only good religion)

i haven't heard a single liberal say islam is less oppressive than any sect of christianity

the rest of your post may be alright but not that part

(sage for off topic)


>things were completely fine before CoC

how new are you? CoCs aren't some magical thing which fucked everything up, people were getting kicked off projects regardless for decades


>CoCs honestly aren't as big as a problem as most people think.

>A CoC is like basic Etiquette, if you want to be seen seriously you pretty much need it.

no fuck you CoCs are retarded



If you talk to liberals about religion, they'll claim you're a rube for being Christian, but if you bring up how Muslims are incredibly violent/antediluvian they'll freak out ("wow, just wow!") and the conversation ends there. They can't explain why Muslims/Islam are good, but they still want them to immigrate.



Old style forums and most developer communities have fared pretty well without those "codes of conduct" for decades; only recently there has been a push by some activists to impose those things on communities, often without being a part of it, even sometimes as their very first interaction with those communities. That approach to policing tells you enough about their real interests: they aren't about helping the community in any way.

That has been possible because those at the top have always had the power to ban anyone for any reason at all. And that's what matters, not a laundry list of sacred cows.

Don't shit where you eat? Of course those activists don't shit where they eat: it's only rarely when someone in the development team pushes for things like this, and when it is, is often because the project itself is backed by a company with a "diversity manager", whatever that means.

The real agenda behind most of those documents, specially when they allow for anonymous accusations, hidden investigations, and other kafkaesque procedures, AND SPECIALLY when they potentially apply in places beyond project spaces, is to ban any criticism of things like unhealthy eating habits, immigration, non-christian religions, and the every changing definitions of transsexualism and the "gender" neologism. They'll try real hard to ban any mention of biological differences between sexes, that the "gender" neologism is something that was pushed by John Money and his depraved experiments, that gender originally meant to a characteristic of some words in spanish (e.g. "toalla" ends in "a": feminine gender; "caballo" ends in "o": masculine gender) and had nothing to with sex or "differences between brain chemistry and genitals", etc.

This is because if you think about it a little, it's obvious that the ever emerging terms like separating "gender" in "gender identity" and "gender expression" are just ways of accommodating their cognitive dissonance (e.g. gender is like sexual preference: it's hardwired in the brain vs. gender is something fluid, a feeling, and so it can change freely vs. gender is a social construct, it's mostly about the stereotypicPost too long.

In comparison, here is the PSYC guy's take on Matrix: https://about.psyc.eu/Matrix . He has some privacy concerns and isn't a big fan of the federation model, but he does say it's "a lot more advanced than anything IRC and XMPP came up with" and compliments its scalability.

This agreement does not apply to Matrix servers run by anyone else - Matrix is an open network like the Web and this agreement only applies to the server (matrix.org) provided by New Vector Ltd.



As for the CoC, I was mistaken. It only applies to the Matrix room on the matrix.org server and conversations in their Github organization's issues/pull requests, and the matrix.org server's t&c are pretty lax as long as you aren't sharing child pornography or malware.

>muh features

An operating system isn't a feature list, faggot. OpenBSD prioritises correctness, code quality, and security over speed and features, only adding new stuff and hardware support when they're satisfied with their implementation. Autistic? Sure. Are the results good? Their work is widely copied and reused in other operating systems so I'd say yes.

That said, here's some comments:


It doesn't lack SMT, it's disabled by default in the latest release for paranoia reasons. You can always turn it back on if you really want it.

>Nvidia graphics from this decade

Neither does any other FOSS operating system aside from Linux and NetBSD (FreeBSD if you count the proprietary drivers). Even then, support is shoddy thanks to Nvidia refusing to document anything and intentionally making life difficult for freetard driver writers.

>AMD graphics post-2012


>Broadcom wireless

Similar situation with Nvidia but less ridiculous


What the fuck do you want that for, your gimmicky phone speaker?


Go bug the Wine developers if you want it so bad.
