How do you not kill yourself, or at least function in society normally, from the ever increasing mass surveillance from both corporations and governments? As a paranoid schizo I don't know how to cope


Solving systemic privacy violations will require a combination of technical and political solutions.
It's a difficult struggle but it is one that we can win.

You should try to find a privacy minded communities online and in real live to help you do harm reduction for your personal live.

The surveillance mania is temporary, it won't stick because it's attached to civilizational decline.
Ultimately there are 2 ways to use info tech.
The prosperous use is cybernetic planning of the economy.
The ruinous use is when you try to controle people with it.


Well for one, I spend most of my time in my garage, so it doesn't effect me that my parents are all-in with proprietary stuff like iPhones and windows.
My phone burned out last year, so when I need to call someone I use the landline. Might build a phone with a raspberry pi I have lying around, but for now landline gets the job done.
For my computer, it's a prefab, so I guess there's some liability there, but I don't need any proprietary firmware when installing arch so it's probably fine for what I have the means and technical skills for at the moment.
Software wise, I try to run as little as possible so games run smoothly, which lends itself to privacy too. Sway window manager, LibreWolf with NoScript, UltimMC so I don't need to log in with MicroSoft to play MineCraft, In the infrequent case that I need to use glowcord, I'll just use the in-browser version since the client is both probably spyware and just slower than the browser version.
In stores I wear a mask, and will continue to wear one regardless of what the gubbermint says because I like how they look. These days that probably doesn't do anything against facial recognition, but I wear the same tattered backpack and cartoon nerd glasses everywhere so that was already a lost cause. Not much can be done about that other than revolution.

I'd say it's best to look at privacy as a resource. You start with none, and you can slowly learn how to get more privacy.


id love to give you some advice but im in the same boat, i deleted everything i did on the internet years ago but the problem is that im an utter failure irl too so i dont have any solace online like i used to do, just the boring rotten husk of current day imageboards


Qubes OS, make it so.
CNC Machine and 3D Printing as a hobby and as training for the fun times ahead.
Offline social networks.


The utopianism about Internet tech was always naive, and the romanticized golden age was delusion and illusory petty bourgeois idealism. The libertarians turned out to be pedophiles, fascists, and imperialists, and now reactionary brownshirts of Silicon Valley and the American empire such enthusiasts of cyber space anarchisms are. The ostensible normies, perhaps, have been the correct ones.

Is it okay if the wires touch? Is it okay to stick the wires on the wall and tape 'em?

How much should you twist wires or bend them? I try not to as much

I'll post a pic on Monday about my wire set-up and tell me if there's any safety problems


>Is it okay if the wires touch?
Assuming they're insulated, of course.
>Is it okay to stick the wires on the wall and tape 'em?
Sure why not.
>How much should you twist wires or bend them? I try not to as much
You shouldn't too much, copper is only so flexible. If it crimps too much it can break. Probably not a level you'd get to.


what's an insulated wire? they're monitor and PSU wires and they're thick and black coloured and plastic

Also thanks :)
happy to hear tape is a-okay

>PSU wires
What are they doing out of your computer? I think you just mean a regular power cable. But yeah there's no danger unless the plastic which surrounds the wires(the insulation) is broken and exposes the copper.

The wires you are talking about are pretty thick so I wouldn't worry about them. Nothing dangerous about it. You have more risk of something touching the prongs of the where the power cord plugs into the wall than anything else.


As long as no metal is exposed anywhere you're safe.


Thank you,
How do wires get that damaged in your pic related?



and what will be the effects, seeing that it's exclusively being trained by shithead edgy 4chanoids who live their miserable lives only to get an ounce of rise out of people?

is this another Microsoft A.I chatbot turned racist, i don't understand how stable diffusion works, is there a main hub of all the data or is it all user sided stored data

Be sure to include the relevant SHA256 checksum for verification. Latest stable AMD64 versions preferred but no strict requirements obviously.

wtf is this thread? someone reposting official distro torrent links, or posting links to torrents they've created or something?

either way, only a retard would trust these links


thanks for the utilitarian insight


>wtf is this thread?
It might be nice for the people that don't browse distrowatch. I posted one of the obscurer distros.

>develops software
>doesn't release a build for windows


that's me
some of the projects I've shared on github don't have build configuration for windows and they haven't been tested on windows either.
if someone wants a windows build they can fork and build their own.




Long story short… I've been exclusively using Linux systems since I was 13. It has been 20 years since I started.

Vid very much related. When I started out, ~20 years ago, "nvidia" was the choice for Linux fags like myself. As a retard, I kept buying such hardware as years went on. Fast forward to current day:
>I have "high-end laptop"
<it is useless :DDDDDDD

Lemme give you fags a TL;DR:
>3 yrs ago, buy super-mega laptop (with NVIDIA) chipset
>bought it b/c it had a pre-installed Ubuntu environment
>years passed, new 'buntu environment came out
>try to upgrade
>uhm… ok… manually download "Manjaro" distribution
>"burn" it to pendrive
>use it

I'm obsessed with these little Polish robot cats. They're adorable and I want to make one to have a little garage buddy.

Seems like it's a shelf with a roomba on the bottom, a computer (raspberry pi, screen, sensors, ect…) on top, some RGB lights, and a shell on top with cat ears. Is anyone in the process of trying to make one at home yet? What's some FOSS software I could use for such a project?

"In one of the Carrefour shops in Poland an incident with the "Kerfuś" mascot happened. A 28 year old man decided to have a sexual intercourse in the back of the shop. The police had to intervene, and they are still figuring out the details. The man will face 5 years in prison."

Oh the topic of making one at home, I wonder if these things use a gyroscope to keep balance. There's no loud whirring noise, but it could be like a phone gyroscope for making corrections. Or they're just light on top and weighted on the bottom.

Could make the bulk of it out of wood, which could look cool. Perhaps a steampunk vibe.

Oh, sheet metal could be a good option too, if you know how to weld.

Is it better to shut your PC, and Monitor down? And turn them on every morning?

Or keep the PC in sleep and monitor powered off
Or simply turn the monitor off only
OR just let the machines be, and use them like that, and restart or power off every week or so?

Keep in mind I've kept them attached through a UPS also

All CPUs can withstand being on all the time and even the most expensive GPU is just as vulnerable as the rest to use.


Sever CPUs send to be clocked lower for lower thermals out of the box thus like running consumer CPUs in eco presets by default and tend to withstand more use hours on then your average consumer CPU. Which is why it is far more common when data centres decommissions servers their CPUs still have lots of life in them while gaming and mining rigs not so much. (That and larger data centres have massive industrial scale water loops on top of AC).


Ok saw na, Turning off your PC (as long it is just once a day) and Turning it on daily
Seems like the way to go

I don't use mine as a server
Also there was a computer plague? Damn


It's been like this since I spilled water on it around a decade ago.


>It's doubly stupid if their drives are encrypted
Why? It's free security, all you have to do is offer a second password. You don't need to be chased by a three letter agency to use it
