Many features are exclusive to synapse since they haven't been actually implemented into the matrix protocol yet or are undocumented.

Why would you say that blindly? Other clients have had e2e for years now.
>visit https://matrix.org/clients-matrix/
>check E2E row
- Element
- weechat-matrix
- gomuks
- nheko Reborn
- DittoChat
- Mirage
- FluffyChat
- Seaglass
- matrix-commander
There is also pantalaimon, a proxy dameon that can encrypt and decrypt E2EE for arbitrary clients.

Disclaimer: I haven't used any of them except for Element, and some like Nheko have disclaimers about their E2EE being 'proof-of-concept'. Read before you rely on it. I recommend Element for E2EE because at least it's been externally audited; I don't know if others have (only because I haven't checked).gentooGentoo

Is there a client that supports proxying through Tor?

 No.6936

Good question

>>6786
You're right, I apologize.

Reposting features from the feature-list that I think are critical for leftypol:
https://matrix.org/clients-matrix/
>GNU/Linux:
>E2E: weechat-matrix, Element Web/Desktop, gomuks, nheko Reborn, Mirage, FluffyChat, matrix-commander
>MMA*: weechat-matrix, Spectral, Quaternion, Mirage, matrix-commander
>VoIP: Element Web/Desktop, nheko Reborn,
>*: Multiple Matrix Accounts**
>**: Because it's pretty wise to compartmentalize online commie terrist activity like this from let's say your legal name or other uniquely compromising information (we're an open target of both state actors and nazis).

I want to get an old thinkpad, like an x200 and make it into a secure, tor-only machine. What is the best way to do this? Something like Qubes OS or is that just a meme? Looking for solutions for full disc encryption, network card that connects to TOR alone, that kind of stuff.

Thanks.

What programming languages do you guys use? I'm mostly Python, Java, C#, C++. Used to like functional programming but IMO now that regular OO languages have alot of function features like first class functions its not as big a deal to write code in a pure functional language like lisp or haskell, better to write regular python or something and occasionally write some functional-styled code

These days I only write Python and shell scripts. Haven't found anything better than Python for personal projects.
Used to write a lot of C, C++, C# and Java. I still hate Java.

Python is the best language for personal project IMO, unless you specifically want to experiment with a language of course. Django specifically is incredible for APIs.

I would just use some Python libraries for making HTTP requests and parsing responses. Requests + Beautiful Soup for example. Both things you mentioned are very trivial until some stupid bug makes you order a ton of stocks over night.

I imagined it be easy, especially since the place I order isn't very busy, I'd need to also make it so the bot wouldn't go past a certain budget

For symbol names and documentation, avoid introducing new usage of 'master / slave' (or 'slave' independent of 'master') and 'blacklist / whitelist'. Recommended replacements for 'master / slave' are:
'{primary,main} / {secondary,replica,subordinate}'
'{initiator,requester} / {target,responder}'
'{controller,host} / {device,worker,proxy}'
'leader / follower'
'director / performer'

Conceivably the glows could sneak in hidden backdoors that cannot be discerned without considerable difficulty.
That won't be stopped by using hipster operating systems though. Linux is far more audited than those have been.

 No.4535

>>4533
Yep, this is the same issue with people using supposedly more private forks of Firefox. They end up using a much less secure web browser that also makes them much more fingerprintable.

 No.4544

>>4533
>>4535
Linux, the kernel is audited to hell and back. But there are many more components to operating systems than just that, and each of them adds additional surface area to an attack. The big example to call out for this is of course SystemD, which took over many functions other more decentralized manageable components did. Since it came from Fedora, a forprofit entity, it also is a reasonable source to distrust the main distros which all use it.
Being able to work with several obscurer OSses would add a lot of security to whatever you're doing, since having a more varied OS ecosystem will give more hurdles to any would-be attacker. This makes things like OpenBSD, Qubes-Whonix or even Gentoo very useful in allowing at least some to keep their safety guaranteed.
Similarly with Firefox, it added many more components to itself in recent years that all form additional potential entry points into the system. If the fork in question is a more stripped down version of it (which is often the case) and still takes the main security updates that are added as they are found (which is always the case), they end up being safer against attack. Your point regarding fingerprinting still stands though, but it there are many vague sidechannels that can compromise your browserprints with relative ease.

I know that if I run my own instance of searx is the most private way to search things up. But what about public instances of searx like search.snopyta.org, are they any safer than just using pure duckduckgo? Because I am still trusting a 3 party with my data, the only other advantage that I see using a public instance of searx is that is completely open source. Are there any other positives?
