UNIX: Are you hacking it?I figured we could have a Unix general:
Hows your project going?Not all projects deserve their own thread. This is a thread for discussing or getting advice on whatever project you may be working out there that isn't ready to be showcased in its own thread. Or its to small a scope or personal for anyone to care about.
A Modest ProposalHello to anyone that may stumble across this first post. I have a dream of "creating" my own imageboard for personal use. Online discussion in this format has enamored me especially after seeing it from the mod point of view. Now this new board would be based on vichan, but I need a developer to help modify it to specifications. I'm a slave to aesthetics and unfortunately just an ideas guy. I feel very passionately about this subject and just don't know where else to turn to for such impromptu work - I hope the other site does get an agora board for this reason. I'm a poor NEET so I'm afraid I cannot offer much in terms of compensation, maybe a few hundred dollars, but having my own board as a hobby would mean a lot to me. If anyone is interested in realizing the modest vision of a fellow lainon under the auspices of a "charitable" side project or would like an autistic friend, please respond. I would appreciate referrals as well.

Hackerspace generalThis is most likely in the wrong board to post this in but I was thinking of starting my own hacker space. I wanted to have a warehouse and I spoke to a good friend of my family who also is a realtor I started looking at warehouses in my state. If anyone here is in or around MD let me know what you think about this.
Distributed LaboratoryWould any one be interested in starting a distributed laboratory?
Quantum Resistant BlockchainCurrently doing some research on quantum resistant blockchain. Mainly aiming at coming to a conclusion whether or not Monero is quantum secure or not.

Book scanningNot sure if it belongs on this board, but I'm looking for some advice on scanning books.
SERIAL EXPERIMENTS LAIN: IDM REMIXAs arisuchan's first collaborative project, we are seeking audio engineers and other volunteers from the community to participate in the creation of a fan edit of Serial Experiments Lain in which we replace all of the music with scene appropriate ambient, IDM, and glitch music including artists such as Autechre, Boards of Canada, and Aphex Twin.
on Freenode if you are interested.
BonelessI was playing with multiple desktops on my new OS, there was a specific monitor in my first desktop that I wanted to just display a couple of websites, since there was nothing else going on in there. As I don't have a tiling wm I just tiled 2 full Chrome instances top and bottom. I wasn't satisfied with how it looked, because it still had all the top controls and borders. After evaluating some options I just decided to make my own solution based on Electron. Basically I made a very minimalist setup with <webview> tags that displays up to 4 different websites at once. There are 16 different layouts to choose from plus a bunch of other options like presets and theme.
Ebike ThreadIt has been a year since I built my ebike.
Wi-Fi Load Balancer with DD-WTRIm currently stealing wi-fi from 4 neighbours, and i want to connect to all of them, load balance the connections and make my own wi-fi network from that, someone told me that with a router with DD-WTR i could do it, but since i live in a 3rd world country, there's only old hardware.

Mini ComputerI'd like to build a mini computer that I can put next to my bed so I can listen to some music or play a little game when I'm there. Will base this on a Raspberry Pi for now since that is easily available. This will be the build log o/

EyeTapSup' Alice, what do you think of EyeTap? It's basically the precursor to Google Glass - a wearable computer that records what you see and displays additional information in front of your eye.

Godot EngineFeel free to move this thread over to /λ/ which might be where it belongs but I think, given the less programming focused nature of the subject I decided to put it here.
Making an open source hardware flash driveAnyone know enough about hardware to put together a bills of material so I could order the parts to make my own open source hardware flash drive? Found this project that seems to have everything that's needed https://hackaday.io/project/9121-usb-crypto-jawn https://github.com/jaw0/usb-crypto-jawn
квасSo hopefully today I will be starting what is a long and successful journey into making slavic drink in my house. I've been researching this for a while, and in light of our recent merger, i think I should finally get started. For references I'm using kvass.biz, some advice from one of my friend's parents, some notes scribbled in cheeki breeki that I can't read, and some other notes I took from everyone I could find in mumble who was eastern european. I'm mostly interested because the ingredients are basically free, I'll be loosely following this recipe.
Custom water cooled rig and wall mounted caseI am planning on making a custom loop water cooled rig, when I gotnto looking at it I'd need a new case too. So I thought why not make a wallmounted case too?
Personal WebHello there,
SeczineBack in February, a thread was made on applechan by a user with the alias of "clippng" regarding the start of a security related zine, and the search for people interested in working on said zine. The zine was hosted on an etherpad instance, which after a month or so of inactivity, was deleted. But before the etherpad was deleted, I (903) copied the zine's content, removed all of the identifying information and uploaded it to gitlain. A month ago clippng emailed me hoping to get the zine back up and running again, as he had heard I had a copy. Unfortunately, it seems like I responded too late to the email and now it looks like they don't check their email anymore. In the same way as the original project, I'd like to start to look for people interested in working on the zine. If you're interested in what needs to be written, or would like to see what has been written already, have a look at the gitlain repo below. I currently don't have any ideas on how to host the zine in a way other than maybe an etherpad instance or a gitlain repo, so feel free to suggest ideas in that regard. I can be contacted at nineohthree<at>airmail<dot>cc and my PGP key can be found here: https://pgp.mit.edu/pks/lookup?op=vindex&search=0x8010C263FB36154F
NeoSo I started a decently ambitious project a while ago: to make a nice client for matrix (https://matrix.org).
Beowulf ClustersAny lains here have experience/advice for beowulf clusters? Pic currently is 4 of 8 total pc's set to make up my cluster, hp motherboards with proprietary power adapters and core 2 quads at 3ghz or so with 4gb of ram each, basically made on the budget of a McDonalds meal and two shoestrings. In total I've probably spend about 65$ on these, mostly on ram and psu's oddly enough, and I just need a few more power supplies to get them all up and running in tandem. Im going to use them as a render cluster and im thinking of getting the google deepmind AI source files and maybe puting the AI through my own environments…Either way im definitely going to look into mining monero on them to atleast start earning some of the money back, anyone have other ideas/uses for parallel computing across this machine? Any help or ideas appreciated ^_^

Alarm LightI've decided I'm sick of waking up to my phone making horrible sounds so I'm building an alarm clock that will use light to wake me up. Hopefully.
