Let's see 'em, /a/.
why would you save them?
> tfw one day you will die in an unfortunate accident and your parents will go through your stuff and give it to a sibling or relative and they'll find your hentai stash and think you're a total weirdo posthumously and also suspect you were a pedophile
>he isn't hoarding digital shit for the Internet shutdown
Better be ready
Why wouldn't you? Viewing them online is basically the equivalent of streaming anime.
>Implying they're not on an encrypted hard drive
Do you even encrypt?
> tfw your drives are encrypted
You think exhentai is going to exist forever and ever?
>equivalent of streaming anime.
You lose video quality from streaming anime. Loading images is the same either way.
What method do you guys use? AES-Twofish-Serpent here.
I use WD Security, which I think it has 256bit AES.
Couldn't care less, I only need basic security for random peepers and family. The NSA already knows all my favorite exhentai tags anyways.
>implying WD security isn't colluded with the NSA
I hope so
It won't affect me so it doesn't matter
You have to save the doujin, too many lost over the years... lots of loli suddenly vanished form the interwebs
But most are only available in jpg, so they'll disappear on their own eventually.
All my reaction images from 2007 and earlier are starting to erode already. I don't know what to do.
I still have a lot of untranslated incest doujin from a long time ago.
Both my computer and my back up drives burnt in a disastrous fire last week. 6 years of my media-hoarding life, fucking gone
Could be more I suppose
I just got a new laptop and haven't transferred shit from old drives yet.
Why don't you just convert them to a lossless format?
>My images are disappearing
No. jpg's are not like mp3's
"I'm an expert on these matters, so listen up and listen good - I'll try to keep this simple but it won't be easy, because I am an expert, as I mentioned previously.
Hearing the difference now isn't the reason to encode to FLAC. FLAC uses lossless compression, while MP3 is 'lossy'. What this means is that for each year the MP3 sits on your hard drive, it will lose roughly 12kbps, assuming you have SATA - it's about 15kbps on IDE, but only 7kbps on SCSI, due to rotational velocidensity. You don't want to know how much worse it is on CD-ROM or other optical media.
I started collecting MP3s in about 2001, and if I try to play any of the tracks I downloaded back then, even the stuff I grabbed at 320kbps, they just sound like crap. The bass is terrible, the midrange...well don't get me started. Some of those albums have degraded down to 32 or even 16kbps. FLAC rips from the same period still sound great, even if they weren't stored correctly, in a cool, dry place. Seriously, stick to FLAC, you may not be able to hear the difference now, but in a year or two, you'll be glad you did."
>becoming a philosopher
This is bullshit, right?
Nope, just ask Daiz.
No, what makes you think so?
No. Why do you think lossless quality is praised so highly? Do you know ANYTHING about rotational velocidensity?
Someone will continue my tradition in closet, I hope.
My yuri collection(doujins/h-doujins, manga/h-manga, yuri game CG sets, few pure yuri hentai anime; all english or raw).
128 GB of yuri data in 270 468 files in 95008 folders
Anon are you a fucking retard?
Of course he is serious, jesus fuck did you just into internet last week?
I stopped looking at lewd things months ago.
I lost all my images twice already. It hurts.
Sometimes I dig up the archive with filenames I had but woxxy is making cleanups more frequent.
Let me guess, you also don't about JPGs?
actual anime: 814G (on a RAID5 NAS)
Why the fuck would I give 2/10ths of a greasy shit when I'm dead and rotting in the ground?
This has to be some shitty /g/ meemee
>actual anime: 814G
That's actually not that much. I just started watching anime 2 years ago and I'm up to 1tb
Oh forgot to mention, if you want your own vault make a btrfs or ZFS NAS storage. It's probably the best you can get as it protects form bitrot, but the optimum equipment (ECC RAM and all that shit) will cost you absurd money.
Are you a fucking retard?
Google it you fucking nigger, jesus titty fucking christ are you just trolling or are you genuinely this stupid?
Keep telling yourself that
> absurd money
Not really. 8G ECC DDR3 ram goes for about 100$ and you don't really need that much RAM in a NAS that's only ever accessed by you and maybe a friend.
Not him, but is there something I should know about JPEGs?
>mfw some dirty nigger broke in and stole my PC
>hard drive full of disgusting weeaboo fetish porn
>1s and 0s
>degrading over time
Why would it matter when you're dead?
A single flipped 1 or 0 can corrupt a whole file.
It's not like the numbers are carved into the disk.
Into 0s and 0s, duh.
Isn't everything? Not like they give a fuck anyway.
Because JPEGs are more heavily compressed than other image formats, their information is more volatile and likely to expand at high speed through an unchecked buffer, poorly allocated resource or any other available system space. I'd guess you're probably losing image data through one of these means.
You see, when you load a JPEG into memory, the EXtra colour Information Format (EXIF) header is loaded into RAM in order to prepare the video prebuffer for the incoming high-speed flow of colour information from the uncorked JPEG. If your bus isn't ready for this information, the rapidly decompressing file information can flow through other parts of your system.
Ordinarily this isn't a problem: as a matter of fact, JPEG was designed for this sort of thing. Older computers couldn't handle the explosive power behind the fledgeling image decompression algorithm, so rather than fight it, image experts invented the Jampacked Picture Extraction and Gathering (JPEG) protocol. They cleverly decided to allow the image data to spray wherever it would, knowing that after the extraction phase would send raw data all over the inside of the computer, the gathering phase would locate it all and reassemble it into an image. With the advent of faster computers the delay between spray and collection is so small as to be unnoticeable, while newer and bigger video cards are more capable of withstanding the onslaught of colours.
Still, the primary weakness of this algorithm is the haphazard placement of decompressed data. There's just too much of it to channel through normal means, so any loss of data containment results in corrupted images. In your case, it would appear that you're losing image data through the empty hole where your goddamned brain should be should be.
How can information be real if the 0s and 1s aren't real?
>he has less than 1TB of manga
>he has less than 3TB of anime
>having that much anime
Most of it isn't worth archiving.
This guy has it.
It'll be worth having when the internet gets shut down and each BD rip can be sold for nearly as much as it would cost to import.
Whenever I masturbate, after I orgasm, I get this ringing in both of my ears for about 30mins. You know how in video games, if a grenade explodes near you, you get that ringing noise? This is quite similar to that. What the fuck, /a/? Am I insane?
The cum explosion anon, I told you about explosive dicks
You have mindblowing orgasms.
You'll be dead by then.
>Most of it isn't worth archiving.
Reminds me of the first anime I torrented.
185 GB (199,591,481,344 bytes)
107,705 Files, 1,632 Folders
i've been deleting a lot of stuff lately, but somehow it's still going up
I sometimes get a pretty sharp pain in my neck after masturbation.
I think we might have problems Anon.
jesus christ how horrifying
It means you should masturbate harder and more often so that the blood vessel in your brain that is about to burst finally does.
Do you think this is funny? I swear you fucking retards are as ignorant as the skiddies on /g/
You don't even know the difference between JPG and PNG.
Now listen here, fuckers. Learn the difference between JPG and PNG ALREADY.
- JPEG (pronounced jay-peg) is a most commonly used standard method of lossy compression for photographic images.
- PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a losslessly compressed bitmap image format.
PNG is supposed to substitute GIF format, not JPG format you motherfuckers. For GIF, read "DRAWINGS, PAINTINGS, ICONS, etc" with a tiny palette. PNG IS LIKE A GIF WITH 65K COLOR, DUH.
So stoping saving your shitty PHOTOGRAPHS in PNG. IT WILL NOT IMPROVE THE QUALITY AT ALL, NOR WILL MAKE YOU LOOK COOL OR INDIE.
I'm worried it might be some sort of circulatory/nervous system problem, but understandably, I'm rather embarrassed to talk to my GP about it.
O-oh, fuck. Is this what it is?
>not leaving it in RAW
Seriously, I'd talk to a doc about it.
I mean, first of all he's a doctor he probably has to deal with people stuffing all kinds of things up their ass daily, your masturbation won't shock him much.
Holographic HDDs when?
Yes, I use Gentoo. So? I don't see any problem. I embraced my Gentoo distro long ago and I am happy together with my workstation (that is a stage 1 box!). I have a fucking lot of ebuilds in and outside of portage and my CFLAGS are pretty optimized and solid.
But thanks anyway asshole. Go and use your stupid Debian while I EMERGE new ebuilds.
I don't download much doujinshi, I prefer to masturbate to eroge and ero voice CDs. I get aroused more by voices, rather than only art.
But I do download pictures, especially official art, from the boorus.
That sounds pretty awesome.
All this kopipe is great. I used some /prog/ shit to convince a kid on /adv/ the other day ago to drop out of school because there is no future in programming.
I'm small time.
>implying you'll ever see some of these things ever again
/prog/ really is great, too bad it's split in two at the moment.
please do not hate me
a-anon have you paid Daddy?
Did you extract the doujinshi from their archives?
What's the middle folder?
Where do you put doujin-made and animated pornography?
同人 = Doujin
hentai in Porn
Google translate exists, son.
How the fuck am I supposed to get the japanese scribble from a picture into gt?
How else are you supposed to read about Misaka getting fucked by a pig when you are on an airplane?
True story I once read that doujin about Misaka getting fucked by a pig when I was on an airplane flying from Korea to the States.
What's your point?
This. People have become spoiled, these sites used to go down every 6 months before new ones would pop up to replace them. There was a close call when e-hentai's advertisers forced them to remove loli as well.
I do re-read some stuff, apparently.
I did. What's the point on keeping it in archive form anyway?
I'm too lazy to download them and don't want to get my drive too dirty
Did you have a surreptitious wank when the lights were dimmed?
Holy technology, I didn't even know this existed,
I stopped downloading doujins a while ago, I only read on exhentai now.
I use dm-crypt/LUKS, apparently default is 256bit aes-xts-plain64, so that's what I'm using.
It says "Nakadashi Kimochi", the pleasure of being cummed inside.
I know I'm a small fry
>don't want to get my drive too dirty
Who cares? Worried your parents are going to find your porn?
Kind of, I am paranoid and you may never know
>Japanese flame, this language oh god.
I get this sometimes but not everytime.
I also have to pee really bad every time I cum, I don't know if this is normal but it feels good/hurts
I didn't even wait. It was a great flight. I was coming home after being stationed over there and doing a double OCONUS tour and got bumped to first class by Korean Air because I paid for my ticket myself and didn't use a waiver while traveling on orders. There was no one else in first class, so the only people that came through were stewardesses who comped me my bourbon. I just loaded up some doujins and through a blanket over my lap and just fapped and drank for 12 hours. I am pretty sure they knew what I was doing, but I was so drunk by that point I didn't care.
im still adding more right now
You're a grown ass man, anon. Who cares what people find. Just don't keep potentially illegal stuff if you're that worried.
>black on dark gray
How the fuck did you read that?
>Unreadable gray/black text on black background
By not being blind.
Why did this guy get any shit? >>101413120
Cuz he didn't call us senpai
Just straight up porn folder. I don't share my computer with anyone and I still use a strange name for it.
Simply because I did not see him.
You can't even make excuses, that's just a bad windows theme.
The gray is not as dark. Still shitty to read, but not as bad as >>101416939
>The Path to Becoming a Philosopher
Truly, hentai is the only true way.
99% of the time being in the military is absolute bullshit.
Every so often though that 1% lets you get away with some shit that will give you stories for years.
what is the point of download doujins?
if you jack up the brightness you can read it, but of course doing that is counter-productive
Sorry, I wrote that wrong.
I am surprised you just call it porn.
I don't share my computer with anyone and still name the folder a strange name as seen here. >>101417248
I need to stop drinking.
is that so, andrew
Wow I did even worse. That's enough drinking for today.
>Only the first word is capitalized
It's the tile of something faggot
how do you know his name?
By having 4chan X.
What's my name?
He deleted his other post before I could see it, but all images are archived (and automatically redirect to them) so it doesn't matter.
I don't see why anyone with such a common name would give a shit about having their name on an image though.
Oh please. CFLAGS is a nice start, but you really also need a well-optimised set of USE flags.
That better aren't any global USE flags, mister. It is common knowledge that package-level USE flags > global USE flags.
Neo-/a/ doesn't know Yes, I am a fox.
Why am I not surprised?
> package-level USE flags
I've been using Gentoo since 2005 and back then we only had global USE flags. I don't see why I should change a system that works perfectly fine. I was contributing ebuilds to sunrise while you were still learning to spell.
stupid question here:
I know that exif data should be removed from photos, but do filenames retain their filepath?
e.g. if I upload an image will it show users/akemihomura/madoka.jpg ?
Please take this neo-anything shit to /v/, where it belongs, we are dicking around.
You have high blood pressure.
Wait you people actually user your PC on Japanese?
Yes, blame that VN and Eroge that won't work with other system language.
how else would we be able to play our chinese video games
All the cool people already knows Japanese.
I'm not cool enough, I do plan on taking classes eventually.
You're suppose to encrypt the whole system when you first use it?
I don't think I can back up all of my shit now and do that
You're not cool if you learn by classes. You have to learn by yourself without asking a single question. That's what I did.
It's not that good, but hey MONSTER GIRLS
How the fuck am I supposed to learn some code scribble language by myself?
I don't know. I figured it out, so can you.
I'm too lazy to do a current cap.
Was 10Go yesterday (nothing more than doujins), 13 now (MGQ added plus some other shit).
I'm on a streak.
Any tips other than "Gambatte"?
>that ugly ass desktop
Quit your job/school etc and read all day.
Lets see yours
I have a decent amount of stuff
Why do so many of you have Windows 8?
I have 102 gigs of doujins+CGs+pics, 300 gigs of JAVs, and 251 gigs of japanese music.
I dread the day I have to transfer it all to another external.
Can't bit rot be relieved if you just keep all your shit in .rar and then use repair archive?
How do you guys organize your porn folder?
One folder per series, and one big-ass "[Others" folder with the non-parody kind of stuff.
I should reorganize all of this shit but I don't got no ideas about how to do it.
By the way, I only have loli.
And I know "doujinshi" is the wrong term, but "eromanga" sounds stupid
HOW DARE YOU
One folder for H-games, one folder for loose images, one folder for Hentai, and one for Dolphin porn because I don't know where else to put it.
Looses images are sorted by fetish
Hentai sorted by Video or Manga
Then sorted by Fetish/Series then Fetish
What about H manga
Custom icons I made and then by artist.
Anime same way. I dont have all my anime downloaded though. Only recent or favorites.
So /a/ do you save only translated doujin or do you download them raw?
>ika musume hentai
>non non byori hentai
Don't like spaces in filenames.
This is pictures folder.
Thats not hentai Anon. Those are anime.
Then just "H"
Very fucking organized.
I have to go through like 6-7 folders if I wanted to reach my Pokemon folder for example.
Even if I will never allow someone to use my computer, I am still overly paranoid.
The path to my stash starts off at a folder on my desktop labeled "crap".
This contains 22 folders of everything I'd normally have on my desktop.
Inside this is a folder named after a games data files. It fits right in with all the other random crap.
Inside it is 5 Sub folders. Each are named
"encoded, exe, jar files, bin, ect" and are given a custom icon so they don't appear to be folders.
All but one of these leads to a dead end. After that there are 3 folders. 2 are made with odd names and icons like before, and one is an actual program folder with a whole set a folders inside.
Finally, there are 9 folders and a txt doc with a ton of links and other info.
The folders are named with a single letter to represent; Audio, Exhenia, Dlsite, Hentai, Random, Videos, Ect.
Every single one has more sub folders with short names leading into something more specific.
The exhentai folder, being the largest, has a full tagging system, with 4-5 sub folders before finding anything.
why not just encrypt it
I hope they enjoy my encrypted hard drives, figs, robots, and lego
>sort by size
I probably would not change the way it is even if I did. Also I'm too lazy to spend the few minutes on google it would take to find out how to do it.
Idiot. You have spent several more times hiding your porn like a retarded 12 year old than it would take to set up drive encryption.
I only got 15 GB left
Nice drive, aniki.
Don't you have to backup and format to encrypt the whole drive?
No. Truecrypt takes less than five minutes to set up. The encryption can take several hours but that can be paused and finished whenever.
I don't save porn
Lolis and lolis
Well, that certainly is one way to see it.
>all the reaction images i will ever need
I can hold out maybe a couple of months when they take down the internet. In the meantime, I hope the market will get to my country. If not, I will have to go to Britain to buy stuff. Maybe France would be easier, but I'm not too keen on reading porn in French.
I don't have the drive space to keep shit I've watched, so I empty the folder and put it in a watched folder.
not that I needed to even post text with my image.
Your newfaggotry and lack of capitalization is truly astounding.
I don't even save anything. My laptop gets passed around in classes a lot because Final Cut, so better safe than spaghetti. Even my Anime folder is tucked away in my TV folder in Downloads.
>so better safe than spaghetti.
1.Set up VM
2.Set up Truecrypt partition
