Can we have one of these going? I hate having to be forced to use this shitty spyware for school. It is so janky and broken and is missing several features that I usually take for granted in a computer Also the person who thought shoehorning Grammarly every time I open up CIAhrome deserves to be hung, drawn, and quartered (in minecraft)

I'm going to use this thread to complain about android

It is so fucking bad, I took a look too at android 12 and it just gets worse and worse, the only thing that doesn't suck about android is that it isn't ios. I think l’m just going to go smartphoneless and use a pinebook instead or something idk but i can't stand this junk anymore

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.

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

Assuming they're insulated, of course.

Sure why not.

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.

>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.

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
>"no"
>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?

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.
