Nanotechnology! It's the future of everything. Every machine can either be replaced or greatly improved upon by nanotechnology, including the human body. From medical delivery to computing. Nanotechnology also has a lot of applicability in weapons. The hypothetical "pure fusion" bomb doesn't require fissile material, which is a major barrier for making nuclear weapons now, but creating it requires pressure and heat that's not practical with current technology. Nanotechnology however could create the necessary conditions and massively reduce the weight of the bomb. Then there's the grey goo scenario where in one day self-replicating nanobots designed to "take things apart" dismantle the entire planet. Are you terrified or excited?

Are there any commercial developments in this area, as in something that's been put into production? It seems like nanotechnology is one of those things that's always eternally 10 years away. The closest thing I can think of that's actually been made available is MEMS related things which could be considered an outgrowth of nanotechnology related research.

Mazda hasn't produced a sports car for years, unless we consider the MX-5 to be such. Honda has narrowed down the range of Type-R versions and gave up production of many cult models. The Toyota has gone into urban hybrids, while the Nissan has a love for SUVs and crossovers. On Mitsubishi there's no more words at all, because , Mitsubishi brand completely lost its character (the eternal war between the EVO Lancer and the STI Impreza, the first one lost with a forfeit).

Self-driving cars will swarm roads within the next couple of decades. They'll be cheaper, safer, more efficient. Our grandchildren – heck, maybe even our children – will probably never learn to drive a car if they will live in an urban environment.While it's fun to think about in a futurism sense, there will be little excitement where the real change happens. Autonomous vehicles will, by their

nature, be boring. For the most part they'll have utilitarian looks. They'll be quiet and electric, they'll be slow and conservative drivers. They'll basically be a more personal version of public transport.

If it's any consolation I don't think that the automotive industry will be the ones coming out with the first gen of this stuff. It'll probably be one of the SV companies, Waymo/etc. Of course given Google's track record in deprecating stuff this probably isn't any better, but at least they're someone with a culture of software and security.

There's always the past, OP. Honda, Mazda, Nissan, and Toyota are starting to build reproduction parts for their legacy cars. The next decade will probably be the last one where combustion engine sports cars will be affordable or legal in most countries. I'm trying to find pic related next year before they start appreciating to the five-figure price range.

The "rent on demand" philosophy is already implemented on certain new models. I believe Volvo's Polestar brand is subscription only. Most luxury manufacturers have phone applications that allow you to rent most of their model range for a monthly fee, but it's currently limited to certain regions.

How long will the downtime last? Is the "forced update" a bump in php version (which I think was mentioned was incompatible with the ancient codebase?). Has one of the more modern imageboard backends (e.g. Lynxchan) been looked into?

If you look at the source of tohno-chan.com/so/arch/res/10862.html there's a redirect to one of those shady malvertising sites if your referrer matches one of the URLs in the "blockedurls" list. Based on the types of sites I'm assuming this is intentional on some part, but Tohno can you please change this to not redirect you to these sketchy sites.

Sorry about that, yeah it was intentional to help prevent raids and such. I set it up years and years ago and kinda forgot about it. I thought I set it to redirect to a 404 page or.. something... oh! yeah that's right I think I was a NEET at the time and figured I'd use one of those ad clicking sites to at least make a buck off potential trolls. I'll fix that in a minute here. Some of those urls I should remove anyway. Sorry.

It's an inline script as part of the main page. You should just be able to grep for "blockedurls" and find the corresponding file.

The only other thing I can think of is asking some more knowledgeable people--like the main developer himself.
From Grabber's homepage:
>If you have any questions about the program, found a bug and don’t want to use the github issue tracker, or anything, you can contact me by mail in French or in English at bio.nus@hotmail.fr.
I don't know if the issue tracker is an appropriate place since it's about reporting issues and not soliciting help. An IRC channel or forum would really be beneficial.
In any case, good luck.

Of course it will, airplanes are powered by jets which will greatly overcome any friction caused by the runway. The real question is whether it can take off before the wheels explode from the heat. For those not in the know, an airplanes wheels are free rolling and will not provide sufficient friction to prevent the jet engines overpowering them.

I've used this site to try to figure out what is the best VPN to use: https://thatoneprivacysite.net/

I feel that I need to choose a VPN in a non-Five, -Nine or -Fourteen Eyes country, and one of those that come up as seemingly cheapest and best is Trust.Zone (https://trust.zone/), but it seems they have no refund policy. However, competitors like NordVPN has bad reviews for not actually refunding, despite claiming that they always will within a month (video about it (3DPD warning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2282FnpuoE).

If anyone could give insight, or if I should choose something else, I'd be very thankful. I need this VPN very, very soon, so if you'd be able to help quickly, I'd very much appreciate it (I've kept procrastinating about it)...

And what do you know, turns out Nord VPN recently suffered a breach in their network. I stand by my assertion that unless you have a specific need (bypassing government or geo-restrictions), then using a VPN for day-to-day browsing is pointless.

This kind of blew my mind, the fact that something we built is out so far, even if it's just a probe from the 70's. I know it's slightly old news, but considering how long Voyager 1's been out there I don't think a week makes much of a difference.

If they are

we won't know for a long long looong time from now and it's probably irrelevant for us today

> in our galaxy and we detect them in the near future
we are totally fucked, as their first radio signals will reach us thousand years after they have broadcasted them, meaning they have a technological lead of their distance divided by lightspeed minus the few years we use radio signals

> in our galaxy and they detect us first
things will be interesting, as this is the only scenario contact to aliens could be as it is depicted in media with the slight difference that we are actually the far superior civilication

> in our galaxy and we receive their first radio signals from a distance that, devided by lightspeed, is approximately the time we use radio signals ourselves

Hm you might try compiling from source and see if that fixes it. Alternatively if there is indeed a bug you could try compiling with debug symbols if needed and stepping through with gdb (or just looking at the symbol dump) and seeing what's causing it to segfault.

Another option might just be to find where the preferences are stored (probably some dotfile in the home directory or near the binary path) and modifying that directly.

Actually I didn't check before posting because I thought the software died years ago but it got updated in June, my repos is lagging two versions behind. I compiled the new one the menu works fine now. According to dmesg it was a GTK problem.

Every single chan with a tech or g board is filled to the brim with political threads about policies, corporate/government spying and muh freedoms.

Whatever a tech board can come up with will be small-scale shit which they might use on the side to feel cool and above the system, but will never replace the current infrastructure. It's happened before. There is an interesting project called safenet, but whenever that actually becomes open the public is a mystery.

Also, tor isn't a "separate internet". Unless you make a new network of individual computers, you aren't making a "new internet". If you do that though, it wont be useful to people outside of that mesh network.
