I'm looking for links or names to forums that have codewords for amazon and ebay items that are banned like vapors and nic, under different names. Asking for a g, if you can help you're a real one.

Are there any general reasons to use linux besides "muh privacy" or e-cred? I was thinking about installing it to learn more about terminals/kernels but I don't know if that's such a good idea.

>>1226 In the 80's people made their own computers and software. You're a loser who can't code so this is beyond your comprehension, and thus you label everything as botnet and jump to the stupid conclusions your limited, brainwashed mind is capable of.
>>1228 if it can meet the needs of those demographics then you know its a good operating system. its what most servers run too aside from the occasional openbsd
>>1226 > nOOOOOO YOU CANT USE FREE SOFTWARE!!!! i WON'T HAVE AN EXCUSE TO BE DEFEATIST!!!! THEY ARE JUST GOING TO COME FOR YOU ITS ALL BOTNET!!! WAHHHH WAHHHH! Shhh, it's okay. You can go back to not thinking. >>1227 Calm down there, Mr. Superiority Complex.
OP, duel-boot and you won't look back, or, at least, I didn't.

Hello lads, I'm looking for a new VPN provider, I'm currently using ExpressVPN.
Any recoms?
28 posts and 4 images omitted.
>>1189 Anything shilled to normies by "influencers", to the extent NordVPN is, is pretty suspect. Plus their actions after data breach do not reflect well on them https://www.cryptostorm.is/ http://stormgm7blbk7odd.onion/ http://stormwayszuh4juycoy4kwoww5gvcu2c4tdtpkup667pdwe4qenzwayd.onion/ v3 tor http://kzaeunogz6s75ptgy6ifjzwwy75xdfenenswvrczd7mewxgrad5a.b32.i2p/ i2p address no logs, encrypted traffic, open sourced peer reviewed, purchased with bitcoins or prepaid credit cards (and a token system for paypal/creditcard purchases that anonymizes purchase) or protonvpn are my choices
>>200 Purchase a vps and set up woreguard and don't post anything that would get you banned.
>>1240 based AirVPN

what is the worst someone can do with an ip address?
with enough luck and resources you can isolate it down to a single person. from there "what's the worst that could happen" depends heavily on what past actions you've done on that IP address and/or how motivated and competent your attackers are. so probably absolute worst case scenario is they manage to botnet you and use your computer to store and distribute CP. followed by you being arrested and made a non-person by everyone in your life and getting thrown in jail with by prisoners who torture 'child molesters and pedophiles' for fun as a way to try to salvage some modicum of self-respect for themselves so they can pretend they still have some semblance of morality. so yeah that's pretty much the worst that could happen. use a vpn and tor.

>>1218 Realistically nothing. They could flood you with packets and cripple your connection, but it would take a fair amount of resources and achieves nothing. If you have some stupid port forwarding rules on your router and shitty passwords they might be able to get in. Most default settings are good enough here. They can't externally track you without help from your ISP. Basically only the government can pull those strings and if they're going that far you've fucked up. 99.9% of normal users have a dynamic ip anyway so an attacker only knows it's you for like, a week maybe. And by "you", all they have is a string of digits and a vague geographic area. Now that's assuming they ONLY have your ip. Depending on how they got that info they likely got some other tidbits as well. Malicious websites can track you across ips and urls with cookies and by getting a "fingerprint". And of course malicious software from that sketchy torrent you downloaded can wreak havoc. tl; dr: If someone is out to get you it's cheaper and easier to send goons to your front door.
>>1219 what if said person found an ip using a packet sniffer like wireshark, what else could they find?

Do people still care about Windows?

Linux or Windows Anonymous 09/19/2020 (Sat) 10:19:58 No. 1230 [Reply] [Last]
I have Windows 7 on a laptop that I bought from a friend. I am wondering if I should keep it or install a Linux OS on it. I plan on using it to play DVDs and playing video games only. What should I do?
>>1230 You are better off using Linux Mint or just upgrade to windows 10.
No matter what you do you should always read the documentation before installation. While using linux type "man *programhere*" to find further instruction.


no cookies?
