in my network there is problem
and that problem is cloudflare
they log everybody's visits
and they make it hard to tor

throw cloudflare down the well
so my network can be free
we must make scraping easy
then we have a big party

and that problem is the GOOG
they take everybody data
and they give it to the spooks

I currently use Gmail for my email(s). I should probably change over from Gmail, right, for security reasons? It's not that I have anything interesting or worth while in my emails, just thought it would be nice to make it more difficult for surveillance capitalism to work.

So basically I'm asking:
What are some secure and safe email providers (if they exist)?
What email provider do you guys use?

ps. I'm not surer advanced with tech so dont ask me to "throttle the ip of the dingle drive until you set up the proxy cum email server with the soyjak harddrive tor sleeper agent software" because I'm not willing to do that shit.

Riseup has been infiltrated and cooperated with law enforcement before and this is documented.


mailing lists are supposed to be public, so there's no point in encrypting them



>I currently use Gmail for my email(s)
Holy fuck I cringed so hard why are you even here?

ITT: retarded UI trends that make no sense whatsoever

I'll start with one of the worst:
> automatically hiding scroll bars
What kind of brain dead imbecile thought this was a good idea, I will never understand. I regularly have to move the mouse a little just to have the scroll bar reappear momentarily so I can see where I am in a document, it's so fucking frustrating.

>when you realize that all of the worst user interface trends popular today were already experimented with at Xerox in the '70s and '80s and rejected for being bad ideas
Hegel was right…


Lack of donut menus.

When you use a mouse, it is much easier to hit icons at the screen edges compared to somewhere else on the screen, and corners are the best. Corners are basically like icons with infinite landing space. A donut menu works like this: If your mouse is not at a screen edge, the menu becomes visible as you hold the right mouse button. If you don't move your mouse, you are in the hole of the donut and nothing happens. You can move your mouse in a direction to hit this or that function on the menu, and it's really the angle that does the selection, not how far you go. So this works fast like the stuff on the screen edges.

So you're basically describing something like this?


Haven't played that title (looks like Turok 2), so I can't answer for sure. What is important is that you don't rotate the items to select and also that their position doesn't get rejigged based on which weapons you have and have not, so everything quickly becomes muscle memory. If that's how it works, it's a proper example.


Yup, that is indeed how it works.


Just found out about "invention clauses". In the US there are about 10 states which have 3 conditions: they own everything you name that was made on company time, using company equipment, or using trade secrets taught to you by the company.
Every other state does not include any conditions. They can claim everything you make, even if it's completely unrelated to your job. YouTube videos? Tutorials? Game streaming? A web comic? Literally anything. It's theirs.
They don't even have to make exemptions for collaborative work. They can take a portion of anything you contribute to if they want.

Wow, what a shitty move.
Are there no legal ways to prevent that ?


Try as hard as you can to make them not know it was you personally who made the stuff.
Use a VPN or TOR for outside services hosting your shit, this includes your own servers.
Do not make any content on company machines that can be accessed easily or remotely. (But do work on your projects on company time lmao, just keep in mind to watch your outgoing connections.)
Do not associate yourself with the accounts you'll be hosting your stuff on, if they keep time logs it would suck if the company found out about them.

Generally be a sneaky pain in the ass.
As for trade secrets, I dunno lol.

Also, try to move out if you got the resources. If not, the next best thing would be moving to a different state.


The wonders of IP law.


this is totally not slavery btw

Corporations want to turn browsers into operating systems so badly dude.


doesn’t webassembly already allow this


> in the browser
Which one? And why python?


already exists in chromeOS


Currently the sole defacto wasm compiler is emscripten, that is part of the llvm toolchain and priotizes C and C++ support. Cythons latest version only supports python2 and it wouldn't be unusual for the python3 interpreter to expect access to some os resources. They are probably working on a full integration of python into llvm (subsets already exist https://numba.pydata.org/).


In the future, everything is Chrome.

So is non-ionizing millimeter wave radiation harmful or not? I know I'm poking a bee's nest with this topic but I wanted to ask.

If it is, then it's over, nothing can be done except go inna woods


So schizo boomers are right about 5G?


>So is non-ionizing millimeter wave radiation harmful or not?
Any type of radiation with high enough intensity will make you burst into flames.
Ionizing radiation tends to be more dangerous because high energy particles can knock holes into your DNA, but that is still relative, bananas for example are slightly radioactive because they contain a slightly radioactive potassium isotope, but that won't harm you (unless you eat like millions in one sitting)

Communications technology generally uses very low intensities (those giant parabolic satellite antennas might have enough energy to slow cook you, but they are mounted on towers and pointed at the sky)

Allot of studies on the effects of cellular networks ignore the fact that cell-masts get mounted in places near to poor people because they had less lobbying power. Capitalism in general harms the health of poor people more. Proximity to cell-towers correlates to low socioeconomic status, and you might be more likely to measure the negative health-effects of class society than radio-emitters.

The goal of communications technology is to avoid interaction with everything except the receiver-antenna. You try to avoid beaming a communication signal through people or other objects because that is decreasing the range and signal quality. These technical constrains will drive technology advancement to reduce exposure to humans. If we could build a communication system that used neutrinos (who can easily pass through lightyears of led) there would be no interactions with a human body. (neutrino emitters and receivers are the size of buildings and send data at a speed of just bits per second. So a neutrino-G cell phone is still way off in the future, but maybe submarines and ships could get it.

Sticking your head into any kind of oven is a bad idea.
Beware of resistive heating elements, because they can be hot.

“Protesters turn to tinfoil hats as increasing sickness blamed on Gov beaming radiation rays”


Prompted by this, someone made the video “Defeating Microwave Weapons!” about how microwaves work and how to defend against this kind of weaponry.


Blame Silicon Valley for inserting "Silicon Trojans" and "Defeat Devices" in microwave cell transmitters and processors, enabling them to be used as weapon (SDR phased array with beam steering).

The "Electromagnetic Emissions Scandal" shall be bigger than the "Diesel Emissions Scandal" and the fines shall be paid in something more expensive than money.

pretty correct take, FCC has pretty strict guidelines related to power of transmitters and how far off the ground they need to be (1/r^2 falloff) to not cause adverse effects. most likely you arent spending signifant portions of your day in direct line of sight of a cell phone tower.

Is Waterfox a good alternative to Chrome/Firefox?


just use firefox and configure it yourself


On desktop use Firefox for privacy and security or Tor Browser for additional anonymity.
On mobile use Mull for privacy, Bromite for security or Tor Browser for anonymity.


>Is Waterfox, the fork that was purchased by the ad company System1 in 2019, good
No, but librewolf, which is still community-run and has a great track-record of staying up-to-date, is.
I recommend it highly to anybody interested in a secure fork of Firefox. It comes with really neat defaults that makes it unnecessary to manually follow the privacytools type "Firefox hardening guide"s or needing to install scripts.


Not only did we convince every single person on the planet to carry a camera and microphone everywhere we also convinced suburbian dwellers to fill even their own homes with cameras because they're afraid The Poors will steal their Amazon packages.

Workers care about privacy too. This is creepy for everybody.
>I just feel so demoralized, right?
Get into the privacy community to talk to like minded people, digital privacy is a complicated technical problem that will have to be solved in many incremental steps. You are correct that there is a class struggle about information power too Workers should also strive to gain more knowledge about capitalists as well. Make a database about working conditions but also how production chains link up, to know how matter and energy flows through the system.

>So feed the matrix bullshit that makes you seem like a highly productive worker that should be paid more to keep them.
So gaming the system, well that's an interesting idea.


middle-class paranoia is what causes people to fill even their own homes with security cameras though



Irony is dead. I was calling out an obvious demoralization post. Shittily, apparently.

In 2024 reddit will introduce heavenbanning, the hypothetical practice of banishing a user from a platform by causing everyone that they speak with to be replaced by AI models that constantly agree and praise them, but only from their own perspective, is entirely feasible with the current state of AI/LLMs.

I agree, that did seem to happen for years right anon?


you were right
i updated the X extension and an post again

goddamn they really just cheap out on everything there


How long until rightoids start waifuing angel bots?


>this "heavenbanning" thing sounds like it'll make the platform entirely pointless for anyone who isn't going there to watch heckin wholesome doggo vids
I really don't see any difference to what it is now, truly. It's either feel good content or neo liberals circlejerking themselves in a sea of bots. the place has been basically functionally useless for a decade now


How about hellbanning and it's just really bitchy mean girls bullying you…nice
