what wtf the fuck???



A collaborative community of user-developers is the soul of FOSS.

The schisming of this primordial collective into users who do not develop the software they use and developers who do not use the software they develop has been a disaster for the FOSS community.


>users who do not develop the software they use and developers who do not use the software they develop
What are you rambling on about?



Are the glownogs compromising TOR?

Yeah, you might want to not do that. It deppends on if you care or not


oh fuck

i did this but with a server separate from matrix.org, am i on a list now?


I'd only worry if I were American tbh.


reminder to run relays/bridges if you can. help the network out

Any one of us who has ever used LinkedIn is probably familiar with the experience of receiving a notification for whenever your profile appears in a search. At least a month or two ago I joined a radical political organization. I did not post anything indicating as much on LinkedIn or on Facebook. I went on LinkedIn today and found the following:
>you appeared in 7 searches this week
normally I would ignore this, but I saw the Harvard Coat of Arms and was intrigued. See pic 1
So I clicked, curious what I'd see next
As expected, I didn't get to see who exactly searched for me but I did see something that kind of intrigued me. See pic 2
>>Where your searchers work

Do you think the FBI was just looking for people to hire, or do you think this was the act of some analyst trying to find dirt on me?

If you go the org in question explaining this desire to not pay dues under legal name they often understand and are able to come to some workaround (for example for you to pay with cash in person instead)



A friend in Chile got expelled from uni because multiple teachers and higher-ups found their twitter account filled with marxist stuff. A few years later he finally got his degree.


how did they find his twitter accoutn

Matrix/Element is a fucking joke. Do I seriously need to not delete cookies to have access to encrypted DMs that were sent when I was offline? This completely defeats the purpose of using it via tor.

Its development has been slow and lousy but this issue is the one that takes the cake.

Secure from who? Hackers? Surveillance capitalism? The NSA? Your boyfriend? Bears?
Email in general is shit, avoid where you can, but I know you can't always.


>Hackers? Surveillance capitalism? The NSA?
I meant from these lot. I know it'll never be completely secure, but is there anything better than Gmail?


i used to use cock.li but they stopped letting you make new ones because supposedly glowies were using their shit for anonymous emails or something
honestly i suspect the exact opposite is what's happened, but whatever

basically anything that lets me register an email with no identifying data over tor is all i want. There's mail2tor or something, and there's DNMX which i guess advertizes scam sites but just don't click on shit basically.

Always assume your email provider sees everything, because they can. If you dont want them to see contents, encrypt it. If you dont want them to know who you are, tor is good enough for me but maybe just consider hosting your own email server at that point, or at least using a mail server on your computer rather than webmail just so you can avoid javascript… if that's not enough, i dont know i mean there's always contrived ways to increase security like if you're not wanting to be found literally (literally) by nsa investigations or very motivated hackers rather than just random bullshit, this might not be enough, but for the non-hyperterrorist basically that should work, just any email u can register over tor anonymously and for free, and then assume they read ur emails or sell the contents and then just don't use email for important shit unless ur using pgp


What's the best/most secure matrix client these days? Nheko? Element? Some obscure CLI alternative?


Weechat has a matrix plugin.

Creators of Mozilla call Mozilla out for pushing cryptocoin bullshit. A little too late, considering Mozilla Corp. has ignored the principles behind Firefox and Thunderbird for quite a long time now and made terrible decisions in a desperate pursuit of profit.


Maybe now there will finally be more momentum to gather around "the" Firefox fork (there are like 4 identical ones (i.e. outdated Firefox) just with different names and each one is underdeveloped).


Are the others even close to Palemoon's functionality?


>Using proprietary binaries with security issues having Paleboon when GNU ChadCat already exists

Just found out that Waterfox was bought by an ad company couple of years back
LibreFox renamed to LibreWolf and can be found here:
Don't have an opinion of it yet, just spreading the message


Can modern GNU Icecat run all those nice XUL extensions that Firefox no longer can? Because if not, then no it in fact is not close to Palemoon's functionality.

>Chinese authorities have begun deploying a new surveillance tool: “gait recognition” software that uses people’s body shapes and how they walk to identify them, even when their faces are hidden from cameras.

It's all so tiresome.
And I know this is old, I just got reminded of it today.

Are there any leftists who don't, really?


I guess "organic" surveillance where the Stasi asks your neighbour to write reports about what you do is okay?


My city is at a point where there’s literally nowhere to smoke weed that isn’t in front of a camera. I just gave up and just let started letting these fuckers watch me. If people start disappearing I’m going to have to leave this country.


Cope druggie.


>In my country they passed a law against covering your face a couple of months before the pandemic started.


I just want a recently released tiny wireless speaker that can be used with a 3.5mm but they're all getting rid of it except for the fuckhuge and/or expensive ones and it seems USB-C adapters only work in one way (shouldn't they work both ways….? maybe I bought a faulty adapter)
And old wireless speakers with an aux port tend to have terrible sound compared to more modern alternatives.


i know nothing about this product category, i just looked up a list of "top 5 best products"
and the first one that came up for best value was Voonex Sound ArcWave, it plays from bluetooth, sdcard and 3.5mm jack, it seems to be a recent product release , though i'm not sure how to check that.

Drop resources on how can I learn to hack, particularly on how can I make ransomware. I'm done with all those capitalists out there, sucking off money from proles. I just want them to get bankrupt already.

theres an extensive reading list in the red swarm thread


start by reading hackernews or similar, and search up the malware they talk about to see what security companies say about them. :P

a big ransomware thats been out recently apparently bought access to various corporate networks for example. Things like this should tell you a lot. Forget about being the elite basement nerd who hacks into the government servers, executes some keybound scripts, and has the system taken over using three 0days. Most non-fed shit revolves around phishing, scanning + bots, scamming kids into downloading ur malware, learning existing tools and frameworks, and applying old hacks to existing vulnerabilities.

Also a lot of og hacker shit, much of it was just focused on security and hosting services… i.e. how to make a computer/networks work for me. So first learn that shit. Then learn common tools and software. Idk if this is a good answer, but its something i wish people had told me directly. Part is writing code and reverse engineering, but lots of the more practical shit is less technical.

(also ur sass to other posters isnt warranted - learning computer shit is like 90% researching what others know and have documented, if you cant just look around for answers and want it fed to you then you probably really wont learn much)



You won't make it very far with "how can I learn to hack" unless you have a firm background in Computer Science and a basic knowledge of its every field, and if you don't, you'll just be a skid with extra steps

At most you can create basic hacking tools that won't do shit against sophisticated targets like Apple or Google, and you'll just play catch-up with the pros and never actually make something of worthwhile yourself

TLDR: wanna hack? study CS first or you'll just be a shitty skid


You can buy ransomware instead of making it. Hard part is distributing it.


Which then again, needs actual knowledge to get done, you can't just buy everything

I was listening to a Citations Needed episode about the propaganda trope of "Labor shortages" and realized that all that WE NEED MORE WOMEN AND PEOPLE OF COLOR is not about making software companies less monocultural (which is good in itself), and the real porky's goals are:

1. Increasing the overall supply of engineers, like they pushed women into the workforce in the 60s in the West.

2. Getting the candidates who tend to accept lower salaries (at least women are routinely underpaid, probably PoC too).

In fact, CN hosts briefly mentioned it themselves:
> what they want to do is they want to expand the pool by any means necessary, whether they use liberal inclusion language or whether or not they use, they want to have more workers because if I have twenty people applying for a job versus three, the demands, of course, will be far less

Somehow, the whole inclusivity hype should be hijacked with unionizing, because who would oppose the white'n'male CEOs' tyranny if not a diverse labor movement?

Beyond obvious tech fails like the famous vidrelated, working with 10-20 mostly middle-class-background dudebros would be like working in a locker room (same goes for female-only offices but they aren't present in tech). Having around people with ± the same attitudes, tastes, life experiences and jokes is suffocating and, I believe, it's even worse in the US because of their segregated society.

– OP


It isn't really, and I don't say this to be demeaning. It's just that the tech people I know who are women or non-white generally don't really bring in different attitudes or values or behaviors from everyone else.
At the end of the day, at least from my experience, specific positions will tend to attract people with specific personalities. It's honestly depressing how uniform it can get.


It's more like 5 immigrants from India, 5 immigrants from China, and 1 awkward american nerd. All dudes of course.


Pretty much my experience from working in tech teams. And most of them tend to have the same typical autist nerd personality where they are completely clueless about anything apart from their own specialized little tech knowledge.


>typical autist nerd personality where they are completely clueless about anything apart from their own specialized little tech knowledge.
That's me.
