I'm looking for somewhere on the Dark Web where people have collated a massive database of eBooks (and poss. also audiobooks, lectures, etc.) w/o adherence to any [archaic] rules of copyright. I started with piratebay (TPB) for books, where a few individuals have made their own library compilations, but noticed there are MANY books (esp. mathematical/philosophical/scientific) on the Z-library (https://b-ok.cc/) that I cannot find on TPB. Unfortunately, one can only DL a single book (and a restriction of only 10 books in one 24hr period) from Z-library. So, wishing to DL entire search results at a time, I was wondering if there's a more efficient way - a place where "I click (but do not drag) zee button that says
and pref. ALL books from an entire category (or at least a search result) in one go? I'd be most grateful. Thank you.

PS I'm a complete n00b to the Dark Web (this is my first time even visiting a forum on it), so
1. if anyone can direct me (more specifically than dark.fail) to a site with massive compilations of academic content, then I can be out of everyone's hair, as...
2. it seems this is not quite the right forum* for such a request; if so, my apologies.

* On that note, what is the idea of this site? Most posts are just of pics of rather attractive women. Steganographic images, perhaps? Or just media interest? Bit more varied on this thread.

PPS Feel free to email me ([email protected]) as I don't know if I'll see anyone's response. Thanks.

PPPS Apparently needed a pic to post, so... some idea of sort of books I'd like to DL - Q Computing! lol

>Something like libgen is good enough for most people, but that only seems to have fiction books (e.g. no results at all for "Quantum")

Libgen is mostly about different academic books. How did you search? There are 8k results


>and multiple books (or ALL books) downloadable in a few clicks.

Do you really need large amount or randomized nonsense that mostly duplicates itself? You also can't read so much anyway, so it is easier to download few recommended books instead of everything.

But if you really want, there are torrents for some collections. Like libgen (text version) on rutracker (500gb).

Main problem is simple - if you want to have multiple collection of books of different type, you need to have community of specialists, and community of specialists wouldn't work on copyrighted books with restricted access because it is tedious task without reward. At least in non-computer spheres of knowledge.

Reminds me the imageboard preppers who hoard informationals and survival books to "prepare" for some kind of catastrophe or big collapse. And they don't realize all those stuff would be useless at the moment when the problem arises. They would be better off with one book - what they read and test in practice before the shit hits the fan. Then if they have the time, they could process another one.
I have a large collection of e-books, but I only downloaded once in bulk, which contained liek 2-300 books, and they are all fiction, "best sellers" or some such shit were they are. It's useless if I don't know what I'm getting.

Its endchan. Its a forum where various boards are run by the users and dedicate it to whatever topic they want. You need to picture other boards as a somewhat separate entities.
On /kc/ we have discussions on a rather broad spectrum of topics. If you look around you'll probably get it how it is here.

Good day,

I think we all know what happened to Kohl by now. As by now I'm lost, without a place to call home. But I see this place has potential so I'm thinking to become active here.

I really don't want to be intrusive tho so I thought it would be appropriate to ask for the customs, memes and culture in general that you have in here since I saw some comments saying this wasn't like kohl.

Anyway, thanks for your attention.

See: >>35069
They aren't Russians or Ukros even tho their origins can be traced back to the Kievan Rus. They aren't Poles, or Tóts, or Croats or any South Slav. They are definitely not Romanians. They were part of the Hungarian Kingdom, they were the subjects of the Hungarian Crown, and they are still living on the lands of the Crown. Many of them knew Hungarian before they were attached to any Slavic state and forgot Hungarian entirely (tho mayhap some know even now). They lived for the Hungarian cause, they died for the Hungarian cause. They are Hungarians as any other Hungarians just happen to speak an East Slavic language.

>Ruthenian comes from "Rus", they're the same people.

Russian ethnogenesis is pretty interesting, obscure and politized concept. Especially when you talk about "Rus", because Rus people from chronicals may be (and there is plenty of evidence) Scandinavians, and "Russian" is actually adjective in Russian language, i.e. "someone who belongs to Rus". So, Russians aren't always true East Slavs, especially in modern times.

Although, of course, there is close relationship between eastern Slavic nations, and between them and western Slavs. Southern ones more culturally than ethnically related to other groups (although it is debatable too).

Photos from consecration ritual of Russia's new Martian Monastery :^) for the Orthodox church some months ago.
I quite like it, from purely aesthetic pov, ignoring how much did it cost, who paid for it, which oligarchs embezzled thanks to it, etc. The preponderance of the military green and similar dark tones give it a very sober and grave mood. The nave is very ample. I imagine soldiers in standing formation. Photos look spectacular, almost cinematographic, but most likely they are "retouched".

Oh, this can be misunderstood. I meant another work of his. See the grayscale photo.
Btw the Hungarian Coat of Arms can be seen on the mosaic of Pietro D'Achiardi (whose work was used posthumously, I think it was a painting originally) and apparently this led to the confusion that Hungarians generally (well those who know about this anything) think it is the work of Muzsinszki's.

I want to buy some land in the country and build a house with strong walls and good vantage points and fields of fire. Preferably with numerous rooms and maids. Also it has to be able to provide power for itself, to have blacksmithing facilities and a metal lathe with maids that know how to use these things. Preferably the house will be located close to strategic resources but otherwise I will just have to keep in mind where they are for later. Also it has to have horses and cows and be close to a forest. Also an armoury filled with weapons.

Once society collapses I will arm the maids and we will search for survivors to press-gang into the service my duchy, the maids will act as officers and the serfs will be allocated to them. One maid is going to have to be responsible for having her peasants cut down the forest to build houses and such for the city that will be built around my house. Other maids will be given military commands and patrol my area for intruders, if food production allows they will be press-ganged otherwise they will be shot. From there they will be send to secure strategic resource and build outposts at these locations and to secure lines of communication to the capital. After the strategic locations are secured farming outposts will be built to increase food production and thus potential population, all the while the outposts will extend my realm. I don't think we have fuel nearby so I have to rely horses for cavalry and logistics. The metal working facilities will be important for producing and maintaining arms, potassium and other resources will need to be secured to produce gunpowder(or black powder if things are desperate), the forest will be important for paper production as well(to issue orders with and to record things). Metal working facilities will also be needed to produce coins, the coins will be backed by the grain reserves of the state and will become the only reliable currency(as no sate will exist to back the currencies of other realms). Thus my currency will be the dominant currency of the world and all trade will be centred around my realm. As we expand we will tear down the ugly suburban houses to replace them with attractive ones, we will also remove all gumtrees and genocide marsupials(as well as ugly people and people that I don't like). Once oil is secured expansion will be rapid, we will be able to build cars, planes and ships to expand to all points of the world. The various conquered lands will be awarded to the most loyal maids to administrate and the maids are not allowed to have children, my own children will be the only blood line permitted amongst the aristocracy so until that dynasty is created the land that the maids control will have t be inherited by other maids.

This is my doomsday plan, I just need to get the land first.

There was an initiative in Russia, you could buy land very cheap in the far east or in Siberia somewhere, in return you had to live there for X years and develop it. I dunno if it's still going on, but that might be for you. You have to wait with the butchering of the marsupials, there are very little around there.

I probably would not live there, it's full of Russians and I would have to learn their barbarous language.

One can find cheap land in the English speaking world, Tasmania is quite sparely populated, they have about 500,000 people there for an island the size and fertility of England. New Zealand's South Island is even larger but with 1 million people. I actually would not mind living in new Zealand, apparently quite a few rich people build doomsday houses there as well.

Speaking of butchering.
In the topic of handling livestock >>35328 slaughtering also task we should think about. How to do it and if we can do it. Slaughtering a pig alone is a very hard and dangerous thing to do. Especially a grown fattened one, they are strong with lotsa weight. And then the processing of the carcass also a work intensive task. So both needs helping hands maids.
So picking out animals to keep as a foodsource has it's caveats. Knowing our limits help.
Probably goats are also a tricky species to slaughter, but still would pick them for the diary products.
Or maybe sheep. They give wool which can be used more flexibly for creating clothing than leather/skin/fur of a goat. I heard their milk in itself is too fatty to drink, but it can be turned into other products.

Btw first picrel is a breed of sheep called cikta originating from Germany, but today it can only be found here at us, and only a couple of herds, since it was replaced by breeds (like merino) which produce more meat and wool.

Goats and sheep are not actually a problem(provided you are not squeamish), my uncle raises sheep and goats in the fields of various relatives and butchers them himself(complete with ye old throat cutting method). It's still a skill to learn though but then even skinning rabbits is. Raising rabbits for meat probably would not be a bad idea, kind of like chickens but one would get bored of chicken all the time(could probably use them to make hats from as well).

I got the sudden idea to look up an old Hungarian science-fiction magazine, the Galaktika. I remember seeing some when I was a kid. It was published from 1972 to 1995, then restarted in 2004. They have a website now too, but after a quick look-see I have no good opinion on that for now.
Anyway I wanna browse old ones, I haven't seen on the site any, but Wikipee linked an archived ftp server with the first five issue. Maybe I'll find more. I hope, coz I won't be able to post here much otherwise.
I thought if I find something interesting, I write a little, make screenshots, post pictures from them. Or just look up Boros Zoltán's and Szikszai Gábor's works, they made great many illustrations for the magazine throughout the years. Curiously their website has a "Gallery" option, but I found an empty page there.

Tokien's house is for sale. Anyone? It's just 4 million quids.
Some blokes () wanna buy it and panhandling for money since November, "projectnorthmoor" or something. Their face is Ian McKellen/Gandalf. There's a limitation what can be done with the house since it's a protected place, so they can't make outright museum out of it, because it cannot be opened for the public just like that.
The want to renovate/restore it, the garden too, then creating a "literary center" there, supporting fresh writers, organize courses and such. Also a hobbit house at the back of the garden.
The whole publicity is kinda sensationalist, writing shit like "save the house" as if there's something to save it from. But that is needed in these days I guess, and with injecting money in it they can save it from deterioration for a while, I dunno how the building is cared for now.

Since the previous reached bump limit.

Played some moar Atom RPG. I don't really have any coherent text drafted but some impressions, moments and such.

This game is depressing. It's like they extracted all the misery of the Soviet Union, ground it, added a hint mutants and monsters, then crammed it into one misery-sausage. Ofc there are funny lines and situations in there, always when you least expect. And you never expect them because the whole thing is so depressing.
NPC interactions are animated nicely. Heart warming meeting of father and daughter. Then they started to gossip about me.

Tried CK3 yesterday.

Overall, it is the same as CK2, but with large console interface for idiots, some improvements like more sophisticated lifestyle/trait system, and some simplifications like removing specific nomad/republic gameplay (surely they'll go into DLC). It is full of 3d, has complex face generator, looks pretty different in style, but still mostly a same game.

I think they made combat somewhat more interesting just by allowing even small countries to have some kind of retinue (although combat as process is less sophisticated now). They also put most of personal-related CK2+DLCs things into base game (swaying, lifestyle). Council is weaker, laws are passed easier, but instead global levy/tax law you'll need to negotiate specific vassal for individual agreement.

Personally I think that game is relatively good, at least at first glance.

Krautchan had a bunch of bunkers all over the place, boards but even whole chans.
The whole thing started in 2016 August when Krautchan went down for like two weeks. Bernds spread everywhere, we (as in the hardcore of /kc/) grew out from the leftovers of the refugees in the bunker on 8chan. While we were there someone here on End - which was little more than half year old chan back then - created /kc/ around the same time (2016 August).
So while Krautchan was working again in August, we stayed on 8/kc and did our thing. But eventually we had to move from there in 2017 March, and this board here was claimable and desolated. BO claimed it and we moved in, and put to good use.
Coincidentally 3 days later Krautchan went down for liek two weeks again. Sometimes after that a German bloke appeared saying this is his board. He stopped with this quickly, probably went back to Kraut forgetting this place once more.
And oops he did it again.
