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. 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/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [Friends of /late/] https://anon.cafe/comfy/ 27/02/2021 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello sleepy anons. I wanted to note that the matrix server is down, and apologise for not clarifing this earlier. I'm sorry for any frustration caused. I want to set up a small IRC soon, so that people can drop by and mention any spam, reach out, and talk about the radio and such things. The report function has been broken for a long time, and I am sorry to say that I don't know how to fix this. In the next month I want to try to update the board software and hopefully restore this functionality. I check the board every day to manage any spam and make sure that there aren't any obviously unwelcome or especially out of place threads. As you might have observed, there have been some spammers posting every day using a script. I would personally prefer to not make use of captcha to fight such things as long as this is practical. All these posts come from chinese ip ranges, and I will try to blacklist the whole of the country from posting, if I can figure out how to accomplish this. It is very frustrating, but though I am relatively tech literate, I'm not very good at managing servers, and so there are some oddities here and there on the board. I hope to make some time and marshall some energy to do some cleanup on the board. I'm also thinking of some way to fund this boards costs through donations, alongside my own and other peoples private past contributions. I've become very withdrawn, and I find talking or writing very stressful. I'm sorry that I'm not more communicative at times. I still read and appreciate every post on this board. Thank you for continuing to post and spend time here. -Quilt 23/01/2022 [Old post text] https://rentry.co/yiyqa

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.
Hey Quilt the captcha is broken, it's in constant "reloading" phase so it reads everything as incorrect even if it's right, please fix it!
>>5842 Oops I forgot to also write that the nocookies captcha is broken too, it produces a base-64 string 112 characters long when the captcha says it only wants 24.

Greetings, /late/. As our contribution of the webring Christmas event this year, we at /yuri/ decided to put together a 7-day war film marathon starting December 18. Film lineup, schedule, and details are on pic related. We'd be honored if you would join us on this special time of the year. https://streamchan.org/#shizuruslovehut For direct streaming https://streamchan.org/hls/shizuruslovehut.m3u8 rtmp://streamchan.org/live/shizuruslovehut.flv Questions or concerns? https://anon.cafe/christmas/res/21.html Feel free to pay us a visit https://smuglo.li/yuri/

Merry Christmas, /late/! From /co/.
>>1 I know it's probably oversaid, but I really appreciate this site Quilt. You have made an imageboard among imageboards, and the last comfy place I know of on this Internet.

>>6149 Thank you for your words.
Thanks for creating this site, and for maintaining it. I truly appreciate it, and it's one of the few places on the internet that I feel at home. On top of things to fix, I don't think passwords for deleting posts works, for some reason, no big deal though.
Is there a way to change the settings on your captcha? Both /late/ and /kind/ have this problem where global reporting spam says "Wrong answer or expired captcha."
(260.24 KB 631x711 image-10.png)
>>6156 Kind might be using the same backend as us. As far as I know, I can only turn captchas on and off for some things, not modify how the captcha works. This is a lynxchan instance from late 2019, I think, and it hasn't been kept up to date. I think that if it is updated, maybe the issue will go away. I'm going to check whether there are some posts about a bug with lynxchans captcha though, because if kind has this issue too, then it might not be me screwing up somewhere in config.
Newfag hear, it's pretty comfy in here and minimal faggotry. Hope this board stays alive. Logging out for the night.

When I was 16 I had to go to the doctor to get circumcised and her 12 year old daughter saw me. How do I cope with this?
Can Anonymous be changed to Latecomer?
late night lurker here, place seems chill

good afternoon I hate discord
>>6361 other than user privacy i don't see the problem
The most annoying thing about Discord is that every game or community has one, and now info that used to be on a wiki or otherwise on the open web is cloistered on a discord server, often in a role protected channel or lost somewhere in a chat, which is of course, usually full of faggots arguing over unrelated shit, and overseen by powertripping mods. Have fun finding an invite and verifing your phone number to see that shit too. Server politics are disgusting, and ubiqitous. Informal pecking orders, a million different colored roles, so we all know who has the biggest e-dick. As many kinds of retards as they have pronouns with Discord. I HATE discord.
>>6391 If you are a totalitarian government you don't start off saying that you want to destroy dissenters, you always say you're destroying a spooky boogeyman, like le Nazis in this case. As if all the alphabet people grooming kids there weren't doing real-world violence. It's all just an excuse to develop Big Brother and then eventually they will extend it to everything else.
>>6394 yeah, more or less. even if it doesn't descend into blatent censorship- with such laughable names like ADL, SPLC and journalists (lol, consulting journalists) you can 100% expect at the very least explicitly biased policies under some nebulous, kafkaesque goal of "equity"
Can't you put a word filter on the cp poster? You could just make a quick string search if his post contains url to that site and delete it automantically.

Have any of the anons here posted on 8/vg/ back on 8ch? We're trying to make a board revival with a spiritual successor. https://anon.cafe/valis/catalog.html If you haven't, 8/vg/ and now /valis/ is a comfy vidya board for actual game discussions. Come check it out.
