Neat, wonder how many he'll eventually add to that list. Shame the thread died though
I've forked ChanTracking at least until Floens gets back:https://github.com/ccd0/ChanTracking
Maybe I'm just stupid, but I'm stumped when trying to figure out what this means for desu
What an odd board to have posted that on. Quite possibly the least internet aware board in existence by its very nature
desuwa is a 4chan dev, someone asked him to update the repository containing the native extension that has been ignored for years and he did ithttps://github.com/4chan/4chan-JS/commits/master
granted it was via a pull request so all he had to do was click a button accepting it
Well, not just one button click anymore; he pushed an update that uploaded a correct copy of the file, fixing some encoding errors from the pull request.https://github.com/4chan/4chan-JS/commit/9012f5a233203ec6e36c03b9372bfb5de98048e6
Wonder if he'll keep it updated.
Another pull request to the 4chan native extension repository by the same guy, this time trying to get a feature added.https://github.com/4chan/4chan-JS/pull/120
Wonder if that could be cygnus
Pretty obvious it's him.
In the brief time I was in desuarchive's IRC I saw cygnus (as nep) say one of the things he did in his free time was run a /rs/-like site. This is when the mods were in the process of applying to the role of desuarchive mods, which is obviously a bad thing.
It means he was a /qa/ poster in 2016 since it's the only place he linked it as far as I'm aware
Sticky on /f/:https://boards.4chan.org/f/thread/3396143/happy-birthday-billy
Interesting technical fact: When /f/ gets a sticky, one thread gets sent to page 2 which only exists in JSON.http://archive.is/EwXLv
old news but around a month ago /what/ had a hard drive failurehttp://what-ch.mooo.com/what/res/1.html
soon they'll re-hit 1000 posts
/qa/ having a quiet morning
/v/ and /pol/ (maybe others, don't feel like checking) now have 20 threads per page instead of 15, for a total of 200 threads on the board at once
I guess everyone probably knows about that KyoAni fire about now, but here's a NYT article about it: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/17/world/asia/japan-fire-animation-studio.html
Now that would be demonic, just imagine if 4chan mods could truly erase most of their actions…i'm sure a few may notice and it could likely even result in a fresh archive springing up, but still worrysome to think of.
