A web extension that redirects YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and other requests to alternative privacy friendly frontends and backends

some guy on mastodon was shilling this, seems pretty legit


I don't use any of those but seems cool




been using it. works really well and is nice to have. thanks OP!


yeah it's good, even host my own instances for the various frontends

The workers who moderate internet have always been underpaid and over traumatized, I even speak from experience, they have to see gruesome shit daily, even the mods of this site could relate

Apparently the ones that work for tiktok that work through a france based company in Colombia are thinking of unionizing
I was watching a tech show about it, and it's true when you think about it, how in the future we'll how crazy it was to put so many people through PTSD

If these people went on a strike, the internet would be 1000% worse, In a good and sad way though, It seems A.I will replace them

Do you have any thoughts on this job sector in tech that goes unnoticed mostly

The government gatekeeps CSAM detection algorithms. It is actually not easy to gain access to these detection services, despite being provided free of charge by major providers like Google, Microsoft, Cloudflare, Amazon, etc.

Let me rephrase,
The US government is actively making it extremely hard for people to fight CSAM dissemination online, by unnecessarily gatekeeping free (as in gratis) services offered by companies.

I've thought about making a FOSS service that collects CSAM hashes, to circumvent this issue, but the government obviously has way way way more data, as well as decades collecting it. It would take years of many contributors to build a useful database. Idk, I think about it from time to time.


if it was just normal for all forums and chans to hash all pictures, and have a system for flagging the hashes of pictures that are removed as CP, i'm sure a good database would build up.

they literally explain it right there - one based on detecting children, on based on detecting nudity. If child, and if nude, then bad


Part of the problem is mod/janny powers give people a rush and there's a draw to being able to control a community, or to suck up to whoever is in charge. Mod/janny organizing or struggle is obstructed by the inherent character of the work and the personalities/ideologies that attracts.

vichan does md5 hashes (through the optional .json API) and lynxchan uses I'm guessing SHA256 for filenames. That said, easily evaded with single pixel changes or by some who overlay a link in the image.
phashes could be effective.

I made a prototype system for collective antispam, never got put into active use but technically it could, with a bit of refactoring and improvement.
https://xj9k.neocities.org/ (code not included, but it's nothing advanced. can share if someone gives a fuck)
Fair warning: there are no images and links are broken on purpose, but most of them are CP link spam.

It worked by downloading the catalogs/overboards of vichan and lynxchan boards, looking for duplicate threads that are on multiple sites, generating a vichan filter to block it, and then uploading it onto that site. Just ran on a shitty pi so it's simple.
Of course there are false positives but it gives an insight into commercial spam and evangelical schizos.

I actually got mail from some kiddo whining about free speech because of this lol


>The government gatekeeps CSAM detection algorithms.
makes sense since they're the only ones legally allowed to posess it therefore they are the only ones who can engineer an accurate filter

Lets talk about old computers. I'll start with my belief that disk incompatibility (outside supporting the IBM) really hurt Atari and Commodore, even though the C128 with the 1571 drive can read a number of 5¼" CP/M disks it is the exception even going forward, other then the MSX that was a licenced standard so of course all the manufactures of MSX computers have the same disk standard as that was the point (and the IBM clones naturally copied the IBM Dos disk format).

Code portability is not big of a problem on modern systems. For example you can make the PS3 a workable Linux workstation where the issue is most Linux code not optimized for the PS3 (yet it is not hard to get most Linux code to work on the PS3 architecture).

It seems the USSR imported MSX computers for its classrooms. Anyone know if they also made a clone of them?


You appear to be using non-libre codecs in addition to bad cropping and compression. Let me help.


>Anyone know if they also made a clone of them?
I don't know, but they did make several ZX Spectrum clones.

No offence to the Spectrum but the MSX was a more powerful platform despite what Clive Sinclair and Jack Tramiel said about them back in the mid 80s.


Who wants to do some infosec crash courses, anon? Where I, or others, help you learn information security for either attack or defence or both.
I would like to gauge interest for this, and would teach even only one person if that all who is interested.

Lesons will be short and hands on, users will be expected to understand how to use tor.


Hell, I'm down if you say it only takes one person. I'm fairly novice if it's relevent.

Hello bigbrained and mentally stable comrades. I need some technical and perhaps also moral support.
Due to circumstances I'm probably gonna have to bite the dust and get a google account and use google drive, under my own name or functionally under my own name as the stuff I'll participate in will be perfectly correlatable to my physical identity. How should I go about this to feed the basilisk as little as possible? Register and use via tor, or VPN + hardened browser? Is it possible to get a google account without giving out my phone number? Any general best practice-type aspects to keep in mind? For context, I use tor browser almost exclusively, stay away from social media etc.

I don't have one. I'm not a target; I'm a nobody. I'm just permafreaked about the promised and already existing horrors of surveillance capitalism and of the school that we should all take whatever steps we can afford to make it as costly and unproductive as possible. Also see my nametag. If you have a support group please invite me

glowie attempts to do a peer pressure, lol
it's normal to avoid the corporate Moloch, it's the only way to be a full human being

And it's indicative of criminal behavior to collect data about people to make profiles about them, that's what predators do when they prepare to attack somebody. Normal people don't do that kind of shit , and it's human to fend off predators like that.

If you have the technical know-how to disable parts or all of their privacy violation stuff, you should do it because that makes you more trustworthy, because it means you are less compromised.


>enable IsolateDestAddr and IsolateDestPort for each
This is a wrong way to go about it, it will slow everything down not just for you but the whole Tor network. Even worse, it won't do stream isolation when you would in fact want to, leading to leaks. Example: if app A and app B connect to the same destination then they will both use the same stream. But it makes more sense for different apps to use different streams.

A better way to achieve stream isolation is to connect to your Tor proxy with a SOCKS proxy username and password. For example, instead of using just 'socks5h://' as a proxy address, use 'socks5h://<name-of-app>:<custom-hash>@'. Then you can achieve isolation both between different apps and also different "profiles" within the same app, without creating too many circuits.


Did you figure it out op i'd like some google accounts as well

I need to do daily bing searches to earn points
I have already automated it a little bit by searching about the select few things,

But I want to go further BEYOND!

how do i that programming magic where i just click one button and the computer automatically runs the searches for me on MSedge?

do i need to make a bat file? i don't know anything

So you're saying you you want to click on an icon and have it do the same search everytime? What are you getting paid to game search traffic or something? Do the search. Bookmark it. Drag the bookmark to the desktop. Easy peazy.



selenium and language of choice are the easiest way to automate browser shit
use an undetected webdriver if bot detection is preventing you, https://github.com/ultrafunkamsterdam/undetected-chromedriver


also if you are inundated to programming, python would be the simplest language to use.


If you can can grep the data you want out of the html you can download with wget that is a lot easier than wrestling with selenium. A Selenium project is not what I would pick to learn Python or programming.

Stallman is an anomaly
He’s heavily involved in STEM stuff, but he doesn’t seem to hold any Hitler Particles as far as current studies have explored


why? all the STEM loads I come across are autistic libertarians who seem to get boners if people die from COVID as long as it doesnt touch their sacrosanct liberty.


Yeah that’s what I’m saying


The Soviets were also heavily involved in "STEM stuff", and they too didn't hold any "Hitler Particles" aside from POWs
So you are saying the left needs to attract more "STEM loads" lords? to pull them away from the right ?

Twitter, I have no idea. I find mostly everyone there so fucking boring. Tik tok, just download it and start using it. It will learn from what you like. If you make an account you can like things and comment and shit.


you just make an account and start browsing and following people you like,

here's a squirrel that tweets leftist agitprop and news


Don't bother; they use a block list which casts a very wide net. It's super easy to get caught in it even if you don't follow them.


Rarely are people who abuse the twitter thread function really worth following for extended periods of time; they generally tend to be quite full of themselves.

They're desperately trying to come up with any angle for VR that isn't video games. How Meta thinks of VR makes me think about all those tiktok accounts that are like you shouldn't spend ur free time enjoying things, u should be doing Google surveys so that u can afford a lambo.
With all the stuff you can do in VR, the best that Meta's marketing team can come up with is "you can look at really high res images".

Sorry for the necrobump, I didn't feel like making a newthread
The killer feature for vr goggles is giant virtual monitors, nothing more.
Something you can plug into a laptop via USB (version 3 has enough bandwidth for video signals right ?) so that one cable provides power and video. It needs to have good head tracking so that virtual monitors stay still even during head-movements. It needs to retain peripheral vision.
For eye-strain relieve the optics have to be designed that the eyes don't need to focus for close distance. So that the eye focus muscles can remain in a relaxed state. A nice to have feature is simulating the virtual monitor as a light reflective surface like paper.
Basically it's a huge computer monitor that does not use much space or battery-live while being more ergonomic.

If you realize that this is just a display technology it becomes apparent that chasing after a whole integraded virtual world is pointless. People don't care about virtual-worlds unless it's for entertainment like video games. Nobody is using the technology from video games as an interface for productivity software, even-though that's been possible for over 20 years. Interfaces with 1 dimensional command-line terminals and simple 2 dimensional graphical user interfaces appear to be enough. A file-manager that represented the file system like a mine-craft-world where files are blocks and directories are places in the 3d world , would benefit from spacial memory but 3d file-managers never caught on. Eventho they could have been nice https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=bo3G0xJSqJs (example software from 1999).

Other areas of technology research are advancing e-ink-style screens that can do usable refresh rates with good enough colors. Visual properties are definitely superior to back-illuminated screens, and insanely energy efficient. It's also robust and thin enough to think about haptic feedback. Clicky touchscreens that have similar interactive pleasure as mechanical keyboards could become a thing. That's what people will go for.

>If you realize that this is just a display technology it becomes apparent that chasing after a whole integraded virtual world is pointless.
It just makes what Meta's been doing all the more perplexing. They've popularized 'Standalone VR' as a term and at the expense of enthusiasts pushing more productivity-oriented stuff. I remember John Carmack saying his ideal relationship to VR would be indistinguishable from how a child treats an iPad—that is to say, an all-in-one video game machine that you can pick up and watch ads play on for like an hour or two. This infantilization, which continues to inform Meta's approach to development is really odd because we're just not at the point where HMDs are being sold like monitors yet; even though I think we should. There's no standard for booting straight into a VR desktop environment on PC either. That FSV demo is cool as hell, especially when all of the subfolders are opened at once. I've never seen a 3d file manager depicted like that before.
