>Lynx browser
Serious question why would anyone use Lynx unironically?

Or to only have a look to see a thread with no pictures?
There are a wide variety of websites that may be accessed with just lynx such as wikipedia.

Lynx is more minimal, and that's nice if you like minimalism.
Lynx works gud with torsocks, and in fact it's one of their recommended browsers. It avoids all the web beacons tracking shit, because Lynx only downloads exactly the URL you click on, and never anything more. The only exception is cookies, but it's configurable to accept only cookies from the same host, or even reject them all entirely. You can also build Lynx without cookies, and it doesn't even take long to build it on a 10-year old netbook or similar low-end hardware.
As for images, you can configure an external viewer of your choice. This is in my /etc/mailcap, and it just werks:
image/gif; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/jpeg; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/png; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/tiff; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/x-ms-bmp; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"

retarded question i know,but i want to run my computer off of ethernet so my isp piece of shit isn'ttrying to circumvent my security stuff, but we have a whole ethernet relay that goes from the main ethernet port to the modem to the tp link which splits it into 4 and it goes some other places. our main ethernet source only has two ports and the tv gets to hog one of them and everything else shares one main source. the tp link has 6 ethernet ports so two other things could connect to it, but what i want to know is if i use the ethernet from that will the isp router still be able to see my search stuff and mac addresses n shit? also questions that don't deserve their own threads because this question alone did nothing to even deserve it's own post.
your TV is plugged into the internet, I can't help..

Laptops are a nomads and dissidents only friend. It is mobile and easily disposable. You can make copies of encrypted drives incase of data loss, ensuring you are confident of your hardware before encryption. Theft and surveillance is most effectively countered by encryption or anticipation of theft, not by how inaccessible your hard-drive is. If it is not feasible or recommended to rely mostly on encryption, it is still easier to relocate, conceal, or destroy a laptop and it components than a desktop. I however can't vouch for the security of hardware between the choices for which I am not a hardware engineer. I've read you can render a reliable thinkpad if you find an untampered BIOs and wipe the drive with a fresh OS. Write the boot sector to a USB or something if you can't trust your machine around others. I would add that in the instances of physical theft, social engineering, or torture, there should be a method of preventing this. I wonder if this would work, hear me out:

>>620 It's nice to see Wireguard has been accepted in the linux kernel.
>>622 I guess, I use Gentoo for my workstation, but I would never run anything but OpenBSD on a VPS or internet facing node. I'm running my VPN client on an OpenBSD Beaglebone that routes all my traffic over Wireguard. Also with my own private Wireguard and DNS server my speeds are pretty amazing. Moreover I'm not trusting some anonymous nerds from who da fuq knows where with my DNS and internet traffic like with a VPN-as-a-service. My next task is to set up Unbound as an ad blocker like described here: https://www.tumfatig.net/20190405/blocking-ads-using-unbound8-on-openbsd/

I only play old versions of games that build with old libraries like SDL 1.2 and work fine in the framebuffer console and don't require OpenGL.
>>621 To some extent I agree. Old often means stable. Stable == good.

Now here's the weird part. The GIF has 484 frames that vary in size between 1x1 and 1152x1152 pixels. Pic is part of the output of "identify" (from ImageMagick). It's fucking weird.
(11.75 KB 804x484 mpv.png)
Also mpv plays it just fine, whereas sxiv sucks balls for larger GIFs in general.
>>603 It's blended, your server is crap. if you opened it in an image editor you would clearly see the frame types.
(76.42 KB 500x500 pepesmoke.png)
It's not really my server, it's just the default Xorg server that comes in Ubuntu. And I really don't think the problem is related to the X server since mpv plays the GIF just fine. In fact, I just checked with "top", and it uses only 2% of the memory. But sxiv tries to hog everything right away. I also tried "animate" (from ImageMagick) and it also wants to hog all memory. Those softwares suck.

Durga is a most respectable man who feeds his family with Java and he pays all of his taxes as well. He lives in a very modest home and collects comic books.
>Durga is a most respectable man

Durga (Sanskrit: दुर्गा, IAST: Durgā), identified as Adi Parashakti, is a principal and popular form of the Hindu Goddess.[4][5][6] She is a goddess of war, the warrior form of Parvati, whose mythology centres around combating evils and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity, and Dharma the power of good over evil.[5][7]Durga is also a fierce form of the protective mother goddess, who unleashes her divine wrath against the wicked for the liberation of the oppressed, and entails destruction to empower creation.[8]
Durga is a respectable man. Shame on you for trying to defame him.

How can I know for sure that my sd-card is corrupted and beyond saving?

I cannot format it or delete any content on it. On the other hand the content is somewhat corrupted, many folders cannot be copied/accessed.

I have tried everything from cmd commands to testdisk.
Might want to hit the liquor. Take off network to isolated machine. Run file forensics and deep analysis. Check perms. Buy new one if needed. Shits like 20-30 bucks. Check why the issue occured in the first place.
If it's a raspberry pi, it probably got corrupted from insufficient power to the board.
