Comrades, we need a thread on privacy. Any decent activist should try ways of staying anonymous on the web and prevent being tracked by governments and corporations.General tips===* Use free software as much as you can.* Use GNU/Linux and keep it up-to-date, to be sure that you don't have unpatched security exploits* Don't use Flash Player, use youtube-dl instead for watching streaming videos online* Do not use Google, use DuckDuckGo or StartPage instead* Use a password manager like Keepass or for GNU/Linux users keepassx. Create new passwords for every site that you visit and use a strong password as a master password. A tip for easy remembering of your master password is to use a sentence. "i fucking love cookies and tits!" with extra capital characters etc. is easier to remember than some random characters and long enough to prevent brute force attacks of any kind.* Use the Tor Browser Bundle if you really want to stay anonymous.Firefox====* Go to Preferences -> History and set History to "Never remember history". * See for additional tweaks: https://github.com/amq/firefox-debloat and https://vikingvpn.com/cybersecurity-wiki/browser-security/guide-hardening-mozilla-firefox-for-privacy-and-securityAdd-ons-----------* Use uBlock Origin for preventing tracking etc. Bonus: use hard-mode to manually whitelist external domains on sites. Don't use uBlock but be sure to use uBlock Origin https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Blocking-mode:-hard-mode* HTTPS Everywhere* DecentralEyes: prevents CDN hosting from tracking you (Google for Jquery etc.)* Self Destructing Cookies: only allow cookies that you choose to allowOS==* Encrypt your hard drive or home partition at least* If you use GNU/Linux, you can try to restrict systemd or syslog from logging. * Use a distribution which takes security seriously. Also, be sure that you don't install a lot of things outside the repository. It will cover most of your needs.Real life tips===* Pay with cash if you canFeel free to provide tips to each other comrades!

No don't water the lithium, that reaction will produce hydrogen gas. A damaged battery might ignite it in your face. Use a grabbing tool to put a damaged lithium battery in a fire resistant container like a ceramic flower pod and put it outside until it has finished burning out. You can put sand on it.

Try highlighting the text then middle clicking where you want to paste it?
>>

 No.9183

>>9181
In tmux, they way it seems to work is that the highlighted text gets copied and then the highlight disappears. At least that's how it works in Alacritty. Another thing that works there is going into the Tmux Copy mode, selecting text and pressing enter and then it is copied. And yet this doesn't work on any other term I tried. It doesn't make any sense, I can't even google it because there's no relevant results for any of the searches I tried.

mRNA metabolically decays in a few hours. Your arm making inert spike antigens for a few hours to provoke a mild immune response doesn’t provide a mechanism for causing harm years down the line. There’s a reason there’s overwhelming consensus among actual practicing experts that “long term effects” aren’t any concern here, whatever side effects are going to occur would be evident within a few weeks of injection.
“Long term effects” in the context of vaccines is about two months.
