TLS is unnecessary for an imageboard. If your threat model is that you're being monitored, you are personally welcome to tunnel your traffic through a known good endpoint. But otherwise, all adding tls on websites that don't need it does is enforce planned obsolescence on devices, whether through root certs or protocol upgrades. Yes both of these can be manually upgraded on the client, but again it is adding a roadblock for no good reason (and some perfectly good clients can't be upgraded).
>> No. 39416 [Edit]
I believe kusaba-chan it to be blamed for that, and there nobody willing to fix her.

A nice compromise would be to enable SSL but not require it.
>> No. 39417 [Edit]
Wouldn't it be the web server (apache or nginx) not kusaba-chan? The imageboard software itself should be agnostic to whatever transport protocol or wrappers were used since by the time content arrives at the php process it should already be unwrapped and just be a regular content bytestream.

>enable SSL but not require it.
Yes this would be nice (serving on both 443 and 80). I suppose it might theoretically leave you open to downgrade attacks but the browser would still indicate if you're using tls or not so it should be fine.
>> No. 39418 [Edit]
It's not the encoding, as you're right, the httpd does the heavy lifting there. If I remember with any correctness, kusaba-chan will render documents whose links explicitly specify the scheme (HTTP in this case), and she might also be routing via scheme as well. So, if you connect via HTTPS you'll be getting nearly everything via plain ol' HTTP (at best), and some confusion will ensue on the part of kusaba-chan--maybe. I'm not 100% sure.

What do you think of people who financially support destructive, censorship happy corporations like Cruncyhroll and Valve? These are companies that establish themselves as middle men in industries and hobbies that were just fine without them.

After they worm their way in, they exert their new power and influence to encourage self-censorship and force western moral standards down everyone's throat.

Because of their own laziness and moral bankruptcy or willful ignorance, people that give these companies money enable and contribute to the destruction of things they claim to love, which fucks everybody over. I think this sort of apathy and pigish obsession with consumption is why the current situation is as bad as it is.

Financial enablers get too much slack. If you give money to a company that does bad things, you're part of the problem.

If "verification" was legally required, nobody would be allowed to distribute any kind of game for any price without it, which is obviously not true.

>Game ratings are not enforced by any country for any kind of game. They'll just ban your game, if they found it objectionable enough. The rating is more of a de-facto standard used to make the end-user aware about the content of the game, so that kids do not play games containing extreme violence.

>You'll be required to submit ratings only if you're making games for major consoles, such as PlayStation, XBox or Wii.

>Update: There're few countries which requires explicit rating by one of the approved rating agency to be eligible for distribution.

In such draconian hell holes, steam could easily block the viewing of external links. I bet you're a eurofag with this warped mentality of yours.
>> No. 39182 [Edit]
In fact, steam doesn't even require games on it to have a rating, unlike consoles, so your whole point is extremely stupid and wrong.
>Supplying the rating information is not mandatory. However, you should definitely fill in this tab if you have official age ratings.

Almost like Steam operates as a global marketplace with different rules that they abide by based on the country and their laws.
You can't even buy porn games on Steam in Germany without a VPN because Valve decided they'd rather not bother dealing with the bureaucracy of their rating system.
Maybe that should be a slight insight as to why some companies just have external links to the R18 stuff because you know, localization companies want the widest audience possible and to actually make money
>I bet you're a eurofag with this warped mentality of yours.
You're doing yourself a disservice by acting like a dickhead with people just trying to have a reasonable discussion with you

Nothing stops them from having a similar feature for external links to patches.

>people just trying to have a reasonable discussion with you
There's nothing to discuss. I'm getting on a soap box to condemn people worth condemning. This thread exists to be a witch trial, and you're arguing with the priest. Not even doing a good job at it since you're just making shit up to blame the government instead.

A thread for anything about tulpas. Progress, tutorials, personal stories, etc.
13 posts and 4 images omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 37372 [Edit]
There was a recent article in nautilus about Tulpas:

I don't think there's anything fundamentally impossible about it. It's basically a variant of the meditation practices/shamanic rituals of some cultures, and it fundamentally works because our consciousness isn't some sort of special thing but just an "illusion" generated by our brains. If the brain can generate consciousness once, it's not too hard (with some intense focusing) to get it to generate another. And things like dreams and traces can "tap" into the subconscious, bypassing some of the filtering that goes on in the generation of normal consciousness so Tulpas seem to occupy this fascinating and understudied realm.

That said I'm also a bit skeptical of just how many people claim to have created one. If you go on forums or threads it seems like there are boatloads of people who have done it, but I'd think it requires both a high level of control over your mind achieved through decades of meditation as well as a preexisting ability for visualization (some people have aphantasia or otherwise are not as good at visualizing/imagining and hence probably may never be able to).
>> No. 37386 [Edit]
Once I was told having a tulpa and believing you have a tulpa are equal. Another different thing are induced hallucinations through really high level visualization skills, or even more incredible stuff like switching.
I suspect that could take really long time on proper and focused meditation, and most people couldn't even achieve it doesn't matter the effort. Though I'm convinced it's real since meditation can achieve even more unbelievable things, and not only subjective ones.
>> No. 37492 [Edit]
Stop-motion is Tulpa?
>> No. 38987 [Edit]
Related and interesting:

I wonder how the lack of mind's eye (aphantasia) or variation in the nature of one's internal monologue influences the ability to do the above or create a tulpa. Also related to tulpas is the attention schema theory of consciousness:

>According to one proposal in AST, not only does the brain construct an attention schema to model its own state of attention, but it also uses the same mechanism to model other people's states of attention. In effect, just as we attribute awareness to ourselves, we also attribute it to others.

which would naturally explain how tulpas can arise.

I quit my higher paying web job impulsively. Couldn’t sand the idiot CEO I had to deal with. Now Living with my parents again and working at a liquor store. I’ve noticed I feel about 100% better coming home from a job where I am on my feet doing physical tasks than coming home from a job at an office sitting all day. But I do really miss the money and my apartment (though my cat likes my parents house much more). I think I may need to pursue higher paying physical labor.

Fyi they're running a promotion for another free Momoiro work. They even have english subtitles this time (hardsubbed only, sadly)

>>35474 as well as indulging in whatever content in Japanese from books to train videos to reading the niyu-su. Furthermore, I often like to mix real life with this idyllic fantasy of living with my waifu in Japan. This would translate to going out as if strolling around during hanami, at night in a hot summer listening to the city sounds and crickets or, during the winter, taking a hot bath or cooking some japanese dish with her... It's cozy and fluffy and I don't feel like it's such an intense and out-worldly escapism as to negatively affect my daily life. Only the opposite.

I am very thankful for this ability to find joy in the mundane.

After moving from the west cost to the Midwest, I've started to understand why so many people I meet online dislike driving. The road designs are moronic, with major roads cutting right though small towns with speed transitions and limits that don't match the styles of the roads. I got my very first speeding ticket in some inbreed hick town because of this. With properly designed roads you shouldn't have to constantly scan for limit signs, which here look almost exactly like road markers. Major roads should have consistent speeds and go around cites, not into them. This creates a very stressful driving experience. These roads are also packed full of driveways to homes and businesses, stop signs, and on ramps placed in ways that make it impossible to see oncoming cars. Yesterday while driving I actually saw a sign that said 60mph because of a curve up ahead, and about 20 feet ahead of that was a sign that said 70mph. This is what happens when you let sister fuckers design your infrastructure.
>> No. 39419 [Edit]
As a tepid defense, I think most small towns set around highways were built after the highway was established. There are at least half a dozen in Florida comma United States that I know for certain came around because people saw tourists driving between important cities and thought they could scrape some income from them during pit stops. Not to mention commuting from small towns.

Still a very unintelligent design, but at this point short of destroying all the infrastructure I think we're stuck with it as it is. And one could make the case if we're destroying the infrastructure to begin with there are better options than spamming roads.
