Redpill me on Tails Os Anonymous 01/20/2021 (Wed) 13:04:50 No. 1412 [Reply] [Last]
Fist of all I have a question. Is the Edward Sno*den thing a hoax? On tails' official website Sno*den and the co-founder of the Tor Project are the main "promoters" of this linux distro. Sno*den is described as a (3 letter agency) whistleblower, yet the same agency he is allegedly against financed The Tor project. Is this whole affair a false flag operation? What is your take anon?
Snowden was before Linus got sent do re-education camp and before systemd. Maybe it was ok back then, but a lot has changed.

Hello lads, I'm looking for a new VPN provider, I'm currently using ExpressVPN.
Any recoms?
32 posts and 4 images omitted.
>>1240 based AirVPN
Is ProtonVPN trustworthy? On one hand, it's in Switzerland and they have good data privacy laws and aren't apart of five eyes or even 15 eyes. On the other hand, isn't Switzerland the home of world kikery and all the banking Jewry? Even though AirVPN is apart of 15 eyes that is one of the most secure VPN's out there and I was really happy with them. ProtonVPN is good too and works but idk
>>1252 I'm using proton and have no complaints. Both protonmail and protonvpn are open source now, so those that care to, can look under the hood. When it comes to "5 eyes" assume any option including TOR can be spied on. You have an ISP and a monthly bill in your name, they can certainly monitor you IF they want to
>>1253 Ya I'm gonna stick with them I think. Really happy with Protonmail too. Fuck Gmail and Google kikes
I currently use FrootVPN with the OpenVPN client. I only need it for torrenting the occasional movie, I don't know if it works on 4cuck because I almost never visit and I post there even more rarely. I picked it because it combined cheap ($3 per month, cheaper for more months at a time) with the ability to torrent.

Ubuntu Wifi Problem Anonymous 01/14/2021 (Thu) 14:46:30 No. 1403 [Reply] [Last]
I tried Lubuntu, Xubuntu, FerenOS. Looks like every ubuntu-based distro I download and install is having that problem. When I go to the driver update, the internet driver is recognized but when I try to install the driver, even with the pendrive on the notebook, the message to update my repository. Why is this happening? I don't remember having this problem with the linux mint before (besides the boot problem).
might mean you have uncommon or relatively new hardware. I had a few old laptops with broadc*m wifi cards that were a major pain in the ass because the driver was not autistically free enough to be packaged with linus or in the kernel or something. had to connect to ethernet and use "additional drivers" before wifi worked anyways just try dead stock ubuntu, hit the checkbox for "include non-free firmware" on install, then plug into your router over ethernet and run "additional drivers" if you still don't have wifi or you could try manjaro. kinda buggy but it has the latest software and they seem not to have any RMS software autism so they'll ship all kinds of nonfree crap all over the place. had some poorly supported hardware where manjaro worked and nothing else did because manjaro just said fuck it and was willing to ship copyrighted files and shit all over the place

Alt Tech ready for primetime? Anonymous 01/10/2021 (Sun) 23:46:07 No. 1381 [Reply] [Last]
The last few days have been a massive boon for Alt Tech. Do we have alternatives to Facebook and Twitter ready to go? Retroshare looks like a great concept, but Retroshare is written in C++ , uses old crypto, and needs a Ui/UX overhaul. Retroshare can be fixed, yet Retroshare is not yet ready for production.

>>1395 What ever. You have not addressed the crux of any of my arguments. That irc is just the bare bones of a system. Sure you can see that as a selling point in that you can use it ad-hoc. But for someone that already has and makes full use of modern PC and broadband connections, it make no sense to go to a text only irc server that has no convenience of embedded photos and video. IRC does not serve the functions discord Matrix does everything Fedcord does, plus much more.
>>1396 No one disagrees that IRC is just a barebones of a system. > fedcord Yes, Discord is centralized.

How do you get around twitters phone number requirement? My account got locked for calling Mutt Romney a bitch ass, which is factual, but I digress. There are sites like this: https://smstools.online/ but either twitter says I can't use the number for a variety of reasons, or the code never arrives on the website. I have tried texting the numbers with my irl phone, and it goes through.
stop using consumerist propoganda
>>1372 It's possible to detect if a number is VOIP or not. Twitter (and most tech corps) require a real phone number that's tied to a SIM. Buy cheap prepaid SIMs. You don't need to keep them active after activating the account, switch to TOTP and delete the number.

What's the cheapest thinkpad that can support either
>1 monitor at 4k/60 or
>3 or 4 monitors at 1080/60?
Not counting the built in LCD panel.
I'm pretty sure a T460 can do 4K output. Check for yourself obviously.

Take the meme pill and preorder lmao system76 new line of laptops that come with coreboot.
I bought two t420 a while back figured the first one would last a while. Love this thing. Best laptop I ever owned. Such a travesty that they don't make them like this anymore. Would kill for a square monitor.
