Welcome home. Quilt 08/13/2019 (Tue) 02:35:16 No. 1
Back in the 8chan days the idea of a /late/ image-board, independent of our parent site was something of a pipe dream. Now we are here, long after our obscure birth in 2015. I couldn't have set all this up without the help of my friend Max, who also made the radio at radio.late.city, though other people contributed music to it. (Give us suggestions! https://late.city/late/res/38.html) We hope to be in for the long haul, and for you to be in it with us. Enjoy, sleepy anons. And again, Welcome; You have a friend in /late/ 27/02/2021 [Friends of /late/] https://anon.cafe/comfy/ 01/09/2020 Hi guys! Sorry for the downtime. We had some weird issues with images and a few other things. Most things should be back to normal now. 06/03/2020 We have a matrix instance available. You can sign up to our homeserver by going to https://riot.im/app/#/register selecting advanced and entering https://matrix.late.city. Alternatively just sign up for an account on https://riot.im/app/#/register like normal. Our community is at +home:late.city. This link may also be useful: https://matrix.to/#/+home:late.city. There are currently 6 channels federated between discord and matrix. We hope to see you there! 12/02/2020 https://discord.gg/VpS37gs We are reopening invites to our Discord server. Yes, discord is pozzed. I don't think anybody on our server has much love for them. Our server was started in the latter half of 2016 when discord had a better public image, and so far we lack an alternative with a feature set that we can transition to. Currently we hope that matrix and riot.im will mature into the alternative we need. When I or other members of staff have more time, we will set up mirroring and more seriously attempt to wean ourselves off discord. Until then, I recommend using discord in your browser and using ublock, if not umatrix and other tools. 23/12/2019 We had an incident involving spam. We went back to a backup from the 20th. Hopefully this won't catch us off guard again. Odd that anyone would bother with spamming us. The radio will be down for a few hours. Do check it out later. http://radio.late.city

does anyone feel that probably /late/ admin got lockout or just unable to access his/her /late/ admin account?

based on the logs, the last log actiity is July 12, around the time when image posting got wonky or unavailble, and random spams appearing on various /late/ threads.
If that were so, the admin could still post and say "I'm the admin, I locked myself out, oops." And people can believe or not believe that as they will.

So I don't know if he got hit by a bus or just decided to fuck off or whatever, but I guess eventually his account with the host will become delinquent and the site will be shut down. ¯\ (ツ) /¯
Maybe we could prepare for such an eventuality? As always, archive early and archive often.
and we're back! thanks admin for the hard work
Thanks admin, but I wish you would have deleted all the spam.
>>1417 If you mean the test post, there are still some problems with the website, the catalog and new lines wrapping weirdly. I forgot to delete it.
>>1419 That's not what I meant. There are still spam posts lying around.

>>1 The radio seems to be broken, could it be fixed?

>>1 Would you be interested in becoming friends with kind.moe? It would be nice to have one of our oldest friends join our ring.
>>1442 soon okay? ;-;
>>1442 yeah would be cool if it got fixed. Been out for a few days
>>1445 >>1468 >>1442 I fixed it!
>>1490 I see that! Thank you for your hard work keeping the radio up! I do use it often

>>1490 Thanks now I can listen to it at night.
>>1 New discord invite?
>>1511 fixed!
Can you allow torfags to post?
>>1540 seconded >>1490 is or will it ever be possible to broadcast on latestaiton? perhaps including mounpoints into liquid soap?
>>1603 What are you trying to do, anon?
>>1609 perhaps hosting a comfy show for late every once in a while
looks like some random posting anon/bot(?) is back >>1657
it says >#+home:late.city is not accessible at this time. what to do ?
Good to see you all alive and well.
The report captcha isn't working.
Putting the date on posts is a swell idea, it makes it much easier to see the context of a thread. good work!
I want to help by reporting spam, but the captcha never works for me.
>>3851 It looks like there's a ton of it now too.
>>3889 Yeah, it's really weird. There need to be captchas on normal posts, or even hcaptcha if normal captchas become passable.
>>3891 Might want to make sure captchas work first before you do that.
>>1 Hello, friends, 314chan installed the webring plugin and they'd like to be linked back from the rest of the webring. Could you add them to the list?
ı cant post anything on late.city ı just only can reply
Captcha is borked isn't it

>>5385 It works for me
Oh nice, image posting is back.
>>5388 It works when making posts, but never when reporting posts. There's bot spam on the board's front page right now but I can't report it.
>>5385 It is for me, I tried the no cookie one too and it doesn't work either :/
>>5413 Just tested, same here. I tried disabling JS, using the "no cookie" version, and it still didn't work... I worry that with the next spam wave captcha will be turned on for replies and I'll be locked out.
>>5415 i've never understood why some people are so anti-js

>>5444 It's botnet trash, just like everything else they added after pic.
>>5449 kek lmao
>>5444 Executing random code from strangers is a godawful idea. Without JS, an easy 95% (probably closer to 99%) of all browser security vulnerabilities do not apply to you. Mandatory JS also severely restricts your browser choice to one of the three big ones (Firefox, Chrome, Safari) or their derivatives.
>>5480 fair enough i guess >Executing random code from strangers is a godawful idea. aren't all programs just random code from strangers?
>>5480 >>5485 I was going to ask the same thing, what makes JS any different from Adobe Shockwave/Ruffle, the browser you're using, hell even HTML itself?
>>5485 That's a false equivalency. Some rando JS that your browser downloads & exec's automatically is not equivalent to code in a Linux or BSD version control repository that has a history attached to it, showing all commits done by who and when, and with binaries signed by the dev team. I don't know (or care) how Windows or OS/X do it, but I'm guessing they also have some kind of system that guarantees integrity. RMS even has some kind of spield about "non-free JS" but I can't be arsed to search for it because I just avoid JS altogether. However, even that isn't an ideal solution. I'd much rather be back in the good old days of 1980's and early 90's when a simple 8-bit micro or Atari ST or Amiga 500 was all you needed, and a dialup modem text terminal comms software was sufficient to "get online". There at least, the possibility of writing *all* of your own software is realistic, and then the whole discussion about trust is moot.
>>5495 Now you are practically just talking about closed source or otherwise opaque software altogether, JS is far from unique in this regard. >Without JS, an easy 95% (probably closer to 99%) of all browser security vulnerabilities do not apply to you. This is the same argument as saying that Linux is better because most computer viruses are designed for Windows (and nowadays Macintosh). Right but for the wrongest reason possible.
>>5497 Actually JS is open source, because it's just a script rather than binary code. So it's not really about open vs. closed source. The main problem comes from the fact that JS code isn't audited by anyone who even claims to represent you. It's a case of the web browser blindly running Internet code inside a VM and praying that the VM is perfect. Good fucking luck with that! Now browser vulnerabilities aren't the same thing as viruses, so your virus analogy doesn't apply. Linux also has its big share of CVEs, as does every modern OS. In order to drastically reduce CVEs, you would need to drastically simplify the OS, and also reduce the codebase to a much more manageable level. They're not willing to do that. Instead they like to pile on even more code on top. They like to use "magic" solutions like new langages (e.g. Rust) and various mitigations. Those are obviously retarded solutions because they simply address the symptoms of the modern bloatware, rather than directly address the root causes. There's also a good reason for that: if the software actually became good, then it would put a lot of people out of work. And especially the entire "cybersecurity" industry, and the various intelligence agencies would be in deep shit. Because while most tech-related jobs profit from pumping out new and more bloated/janky versions of the same products you already bought dozens of times before, those two sectors are fully dependent on the sorry ass state of modern technology.
>>5495 Nonfree JS is exactly what it sounds like, it's JS licensed under anything but a free software license, so effectively just JS. >There at least, the possibility of writing *all* of your own software is realistic, and then the whole discussion about trust is moot. Holy shit yes, hardware drivers are such AIDS it's unbelievable. Even just looking at package size these things are fuckoff huge for no good reason, which should instantly make you distrust them. >>5498 To be fair to webfags, JS is a huge ogre shit in terms of language design and absolutely would be retarded to use even if there were no concerns about breaking security. I can see the use for something more advanced than static markup but JS is such a cancerous language only turbomongs would willingly use it for that.
